Stephone Mejia: The Unpredictable

2/3 Crazy Thoughts, 1/3 Sports

Today Is A Slow Day

FINALLY, one of my favorite teams won a game. Granted, USC did not start the game well last night. They gave up 14 points in a span of three minutes against Utah.  Utah was one of three teams I was scared to face this year. The trip to the Pacific Northwest is always a problem for USC. This year they are headed to the University of Washington. The last team?The home game against Oregon.

What a week it has been. Since SUNDAY, my Raiders lost, the Angels didn’t make the playoffs and the icing on the cake? BOTH division rivals(Rangers and A’s) made the playoffs. I work with Giants and A’s fans. I can’t wait for this postseason to be over. Like I mentioned before, the quicker the A’s and Giants get eliminated, I’ll be happy again.

This weekend should be a good one. Bay Area trip and just relaxing. I’m also taking a breaking a break from drinking. That’s how messed up this week has been.

I’m keeping this post short and sweet. It’s Friday. I’ll be back better than ever next week.

After reading my guest post, Josh said I have many female friends. Yes, it’s true.

My only respectable response?

Yeah, I’m that awesome.

Have a good weekend!

Bitter Day, Bitter DAYS

Well…. I’m back, but not all the way. I hope you enjoyed the post by Josh yesterday, if you didn’t read it, here it is: The Replacement.

Safe to say, he was wrong about the Dodgers. I’m angry, bitter.  I’m taking advantage of happy hour, who wants to join?

I hate the A’s and the Rangers with a passion. Rangers can never win when it counts. The A’s?….whatever. Congrats A’s and Party Up.

Sports, I’m a fan, I take it serious.

Substitute Post, Replacement Blogger – Go Dodgers!!

For some reason Stephone was unable to do his own work so I am filling in for him. My name is Josh and I don’t believe in Twitter or Facebook. I’m old school, I actually call people and I suck at texting.

I DO work in the media industry in Los Angeles and I have been lobbying for him to move down here. He is trying, but this industry is a tough one.

Since I own this post today, this is my way.

THE DODGERS WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!!!

Stephone’s ANGELS suck.

The Angels should have made a move at the trade deadline for some bullpen help.

I don’t know what to do. He really didn’t give me a layout on what to post.

*I’ll give you 5 fun/interesting facts about him*:

1. Stephone instigates like no other.

2.  He LOVES the Angels, Raiders, USC, Lakers, Ducks. In that order.

3. He can have a serious conversation with you, IF you ask.

4. He has more female friends(hot ones!) THAN guy friends. Makes no sense because he is one ugly mofo.

5. He has a good head on his shoulders for being quite emotional.

Bonus one:

People go crazy for Jordan’s…He goes crazy for Puma’s.

I hope those facts gives you a little bit more insight about Stephone.

I also hope he doesn’t ask me to this again on short notice.

Here is MY favorite video.

I’m done.

Finished.

OUT!!!!!

Out Of My Mind

I should be using my thoughts, for thinking. Today, I have not been thinking, I will not write. Rough weekend for me, my mind is all over the place. This video sums it up.

*LANGUAGE*LANGUAGE*LANGUAGE*

Back to writing tomorrow.

Have a good one folks!

Finally Friday

Amazing, we all celebrate once Friday/the weekend arrives and before you know it – BAM! – it’s over. I’m happy, regardless of how quick the weekend always goes.

The second job has killed me this week, chaotic. A small part of me wants to play the sick card tonight. I won’t because they would not appreciate that one bit..

As happy as I am for the weekend, I still have to do more manual labor. This weekend will be known as,  “Moving Weekend”.

Saturday, I shall take my muscle to the Jackson area.

Sunday, I shall take my muscle to the Bay Area.

 The only TWO bright spots for the weekend will be the Raiders game on Sunday

 AND…….

This show is AMAZING.

It’s stories that we read, when we were young, on the tube.

Keeping it mild today.

I wish I had some of this right now…

Soon enough, hopefully.

No rest for the weary. Don’t let my negativity bring down your day.

Remember, it’s the weekend so….

Adios!

Follow away.

From “Jeremy Lin That I Used To Know” to…

I’m going to take a break from my scheduled Wednesday writing.  With the recent announcement of the NFL Refs coming back sooner than later, I found this parody.

Enjoy!

Look familiar?

This is the same guy who gave us the love song of Jeremy Lin.

The NBA is almost back… Lakers/Heat, NBA Finals 2013.

Happy Day of Humps!

This Doesn’t Get You Hungry?

My co-worker showed me this video. I was laughing the whole time, especially at the big guy. Very good beat though. Then I thought to myself, my friends are weird. I love them though.

That is your laughter of the day.
Is it Happy Hour yet?

Adios!

Do You Believe In Miracles? YES!!!!!

Yesterday, yours truly and about 11 other loveable misfits had some fun tailgating at the Raiders/Steelers game. The day went so smoothly compared to other tailgating adventures we have had. We actually arrived in Oakland on time (first time ever).

I have never seen anything like this before. It was pretty awesome though.

Taligating taken to another level.

Greg, the leader of the tailgate, received so many compliments about this. I don’t blame them,  the bar came with the stools AND the umbrella. I have no idea what to expect for next season. It should be interesting.

The tailgate was fun though, just food and booze everywhere. The weather was AMAZING also.

Then it was game time. It was a great game from the start. Non-stop scoring, defense was optional.

Big Ben at work.

Unfortunately, I guess the game was just a bit much for some people. I’m amazed how he found time for a nap. I didn’t sleep, I was witnessing a Miracle in Oakland.

Joe's look is priceless.

Even though defense was optional, the Raiders made stops  when they had to. When they did, it led to this perfect set-up for SeBass.

Game winning kick.

It was PANDEMONEIUM!!! The crowd went wild.

While waiting for the crowd to clear, we were able to get a group shot.

It was a great day. Afterwards we went to San Francisco…for five minutes. I was able to get this awesome picture though…

Bay Bridge

My picture skills are horrible, but I love this picture of the Bay Bridge.

After that minor detour, we went to In-N-Out for some grub and made our way back to Sacramento.

My Sunday started at 4:55am and ended at 11pm. It was a long day, but a successful one.

BONUS??? I didn’t get hammered, which is always good.

Double Bonus???? Old High School folks came up from San Pedro for the game.

Class of 2003

Triple Bonus??????? Ryan and Cindy FINALLY showed up. Better late than never right?

Cindy the chick, Ryan throwing gang signs.

Happy Monday!

MIRACLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Treat Yo Self!

So the Endeavour made its trip over Sacramento today. Apparently it was the talk of the town, because pictures of the shuttle dominated my Facebook and Twitter page. I didn’t know it was a big deal. If I knew, I would’ve made time to see it. Of course, history repeated itself. I thought of Coachella. You know, Coachella, the return of Tupac. No?

Tupac made an appearance this past summer during the first weekend at Coachella.

When people first heard about it , they were going nuts!!!
Then the second weekend of Coachella happened, people were like “Eh”.

Safe to say that I feel the same way about this situation. Ever since the journey began, it has been in the media. For me, this was MY second weekend of Coachella.

Enough hating, my television shows are back! The Office and Parks and Recreation. I missed Parks and Rec., but I was able to watch The Office. I know The Office has been a downer since the great Michael Scott left, but the show keeps me laughing so I can’t complain.

I wish Kevin’s bit was available on YouTube because his efforts saving a turtle was awesome.

Here are three words to live by, courtesy of Parks & Rec, for the weekend.

I told the blog world what I will be doing on Sunday in my last past. If you missed the post, I’ll be doing some Tailgating at the Raiders  Game.

I just got word that Raider legend Marcus Allen will be lighting the Al Davis flame also. He should get a nice crowd reaction.

Yeah, he signed it for me.

Saturday? I have no clue. I will just be going with the flow. For now, I’m just counting down the time when my shift comes to a close.

My Friday Favorite Video?

The joy of one-hit wonders.

Enjoy the weekend!

The Tailgate Adventure

RRRRRRAAAAAAIIIIIDDDDDERRRSSSSSSS!!!

I’m excited, this is my first game that I’ll be going to attend as a fan.

(The others were for work.)

If you have never attended a game, YOU MUST.  People always worry about safety, and I’m not against that. I’ve heard people say they don’t want to go to a Raiders games because it’s “scary” or something crazy like they “might get killed”. Really? REALLY?! The Philadelphia Eagles had a jail cell in their old stadium.

Are we really going to be that close-minded? All the negative stuff that happens in stadiums around the country are isolated incidents. If that’s the case, should we stop going to the movies because of the Colorado shooting? Should we stop grocery shopping because we might get robbed? Come on, let’s be realistic. No matter where we go, we try to be aware of our surroundings. We can’t control everything, whatever happens – HAPPENS! We have still have to live our life and enjoy.

Enough with that rant. I can’t wait for Sunday.

I get to go back to this….

And this…

This..

And most important..

These pictures were taken last year against the Patriots.

The Raiders take on the Steelers and it’s a sold out. The crowd is going to be crazy. The crowd will get more rowdy if we pull off the upset.

Every time I go to these games, something crazy happens: BBQ grills falling of a truck, awesome tailgate neighbors, the infamous Raiders/Colts game, etc.  I wonder what this weekend will bring? Hopefully something low-key because I’m getting to old for this @$#^.

It’s always a good time when you go tailgate with friends. You’re just chilling out, drinking and having a good time. I think people fail to realize that’s what is all about. You shouldn’t have to worry about other people if you’re with friends. Only worry when the time comes.

This Sunday will be awesome, if you haven’t gone to a football game – GO!

If you can, go to more than one. I’ve gone to a few different games/stadiums and it’s amazing how each one is different. If anything, you just have to experience it.

If you can, TAILGATE. It’s amazing  seeing all the cars in the parking lot around 9am and smoke in the air from the grills. Everybody is walking around sporting their favorite team with a beer in hand. Most importantly, everybody is there to root on their favorite team.

Tailgate – it’s amazing, awesome and an adventure.
