Played in a $25 buy-in tournament this week. Two additional $10 buy-ins put me in the game $45. After the other players were eliminated another player and I chopped the $400 pot. I got $170. After dealer tip, beer and a Makers Mark, I came home with $105 more than what I went in with. I call that entertaining.

I Got Lucky At The Riverview Lodge Saturday.

I was downtown and bam there it was. The cargo ship PONTVTREMON turning around in front of the Riverview Lodge in Antioch. Recently it's been to China, Panama, Ukraine and Saudi Arabia and now it's in Pittsburg & Antioch. I have to stop every time I see something like this. I would like to know when this is going to happen 24 hours in advance. This way I can get a stool on the rail at the Riverview Lodge and have some lunch or dinner and watch the whole thing right in from me. It all happens in about 30 minutes. It's pretty amazing actually. You can't see this in Kansas. It another reason to love living in East County, ship watching. I'm working on being able to schedule it Marine Traffic.

Marvin Comstock Played Baskeball For The 1949 Panthers?

I was stunned going through a 1949 Antioch Panther yearbook and seeing Coach Atkinson and Marvin Comstock (both in the Antioch Sports Legends Museum). Now for you kids too young to know, Coach Comstock, beat the Pittsburg Pirates football team 10 years straight in the 1970's. But what I did not know was that Coach Comstock was a student too at Antioch High School too. He appears to be undersized for basketball but I bet he made up for it in heart.

Tricia Piquero, Publisher, 110 & 85 Degree Magazine's

I invited Tricia to join me for lunch the other day and see Antioch's newest restaurant Pete's. She ordered some sort of Ahi Tuna Salad. Now I'm able to show you something other than beer and flatbread pizza. Thanks for coming over. It's always a pleasure to see you.
