You ever been on that carney ride called the Round Up? It's where you're in that cage and rotating in all directions and when the centrifuge kicks in they drop the floor out from you like the Turkish Twist ride. That's what those Pac waves look like at the floor, when they shoot up the elevator like the Chocolate Factory. Hence, the need to not look down at all and just where I want to go.
Yes stoked on Trestles and I'll charge up and down that coast to all the breaks. Even giving up watching the Pats home opener at 5pm PST since it will be perhaps the best conditions of the whole trip at those breaks. Ain't no paddle like a west coast paddle cuz a west coast paddle don't stop, when you see a stoked Spicoli in a jacked wave on the lip then you gotta give the Masshole his props. Going in with full intent to replace "paddle" with "barrell".

It's gotta be your optimism that's bringing the waves. Your daily positive affirmations to the sea are rewarding you. The tropically depressed on here should follow suit but misery is comforting.
Murdah in RFK? The NFL seemed to nail all the rivalries this week. It's been a sick day to watch gridiron. Hope there's a flea flicker or some semblance of a halfback pass in rcarter's silver linings playbook!!!

Yeah, Brady 21-2 vs. the Bills in his career. The Bills used to give us #AFCEastprobs back when they were a powerhose (yes braws, I meant powerhose) popularizing the no-huddle offense with the former signal-caller of the Houston Gamblers. Wes will always be a respected overachiever and Amendola did a fine job not letting his hurt (not injured, there's a difference) nutsack and not seeing 1st quarter keep him from double-catches and triple digit yards.
This team always rises above epidemic injuries, murdahs, espionage scrutiny, and other assorted obstacles to still giterdunn. Vereen looked like a poor man's Roger Craig out there and if they give him the rock more often he will further resemble Craig. A team that wins when it plays poorly is formidable. There seemed to be some lubricant on the ball. Who put that on the pigskin today?
Atlanta had their chance and Matty Ice usually delivers in that situation but a man needs protection and the line let the Aints pummel him on the last play. That's a great rivalry and I've been at the Dome for it in prior years. Jackson was a huge pickup.
C'mon David, did you really give Sanchez another 15 yards on his relatively uncontested scramble at the end? You handed them the game and you don't do that in this league of non-guarantee for the player. Step into my office...you're fired. As much as I am pissed a division rival didn't get a loss and as much as I despise the NYJ's, I'm happy for Rex that David footed...I mean handed him the game. You got to give a man some credit when he's weathered the schittstorm of the media all the way to a cameo in That's My Boy of a Pats die hard. Love Bill B but you won't see him cracking a joke in the 5th quarter interview let alone H-Wood.

Though I come from a time, long, long ago where tropical systems weren't a given. Ya see, if you just joined this game in the past few years you were led to believe that late August started a pattern of back to back 'cane swells. And that just isn't how the east coast, especially the northern hinterlands, roll. Yeah, you usually got something....here or there, but some years were as bad as this. Though we could break a record of the latest into a season with out a hurricane. Now that just means there were NO hurricanes. We don't get waves from every Hurricane in the Atlantic basin, mind y'all.
The real problem has been these past Septembers haven't ushered in consistent cold fronts marching across the country or friendly, happy lows forming down in the gulf or off Hatty. Back in the good ol' days this happened more frequently, but the beginning of September is......the beginning of September. Still summer. Nature doesn't play the Memorial Day to Labor Day thang. But the past few years practically all of our surf through September into early October was tropical related.
Though if youse guys missed the FAll of 2011.....well that's too bad. That was a fall. It started with Hurricane Irene in late August and almost never stopped until mid-December.........then that winter was God-awful........
The East Coast - when you play.......you got to pay.
