For today, I’m just throwing some random stuff together and we’ll see where it goes.
The Giants – Even year and I’m up – I’m Down – I’m up then I’m down again

First of all, I’m still pissed that the Giants lost game 4 at home. I must admit that I was not overly optimistic that they were going anywhere this year. Every time that I counted them out they would prove me wrong. The season started and I was not excited, I didn’t think that they had done enough in the off season. Dennard Span, Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto were good additions, but we missed out on Zack Greinke. We still had Posey, Pence, Belt, Pagan, Crawford, Duffy and Panik and of course Madison Bumgarner, so we should be competitive.

They come out

of the gates, so-so, win some and lose some, then they catch fire… May, June and up until the All-star break they are winning. They are getting through injuries and nobody is on fire, but they keep winning. So, now I’m getting excited 57-33 and a 7 game lead, the best record in baseball. Then they came back from the break and lost and lost in every way possible. The Padres owned them, Santiago Casillas lost his confidence and in spite of 31 saves could close out a game. The Dodgers caught and passed them and they were leaking some serious oil and limping to the finish line. Just to make the playoffs, they had to sweep the Dodgers in the last series of the season.san-francisco-giants

Off to New York

for a one game playoff with the Mets, an awesome pitcher’s duel with Mad Bum tossing a complete game shutout and some late game heroics from Conor Gillespie and they were off to Chicago, to play the Cubs, the hottest team in baseball for a best of 5 series. I’m excited again… Game one, Cueto is pitching a gem, but throws one bad pitch and gives up a homer in the 8th and down go the Giants. Game 2 Samardzija pitching again in Chicago and gets roughed up early and its back to SF down 2 games and playing a sudden death at home. Game 3, the Giants have their Mr. October, Mad Bumm going, I’m cautiously optimistic, but it starts bad, an early homer to the Cubs pitcher and we are down 3 nothing, oh well it was a good run… but they come back and are up 5-3 in the 9th, here comes the bullpen and there goes the lead.

I’m bummed

but it’s October, it’s an even year and it’s the Giants… Crawford and Panik combined for a dramatic walk off win in the 13th, I’m stoked. Matt Moore was dealing in game 4 and the Giants take a 5-2 lead into the ninth… Here we come Chicago, game 5 and Johnny Cueto is set to go, but here comes the bull pen and there goes the game and game 5 and the season…. Un-freaking believable and, oh yea, I’m bummed…

I read his book years ago and there was also a large section on him in “The Right Stuff” I have admired him for years and was surprised to see that he is alive and well, 93 years young and is quiet an accomplished Tweeter… Check out some of these classics. Chuck Yeager Twitter

 

“The Reaper”

I saw this article today, linked on my Task & Purpose email… I’m looking forward to seeing this production, but a couple of things jumped out at me from the article. Nicholas Irving aka the Reaper is the son of military veterans and is the first African American Sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion. What was really interesting is that the production is based on a self-published book that Irving wrote during a four-day alcohol binge. CB

Jay Z Is Producing A TV Show About Legendary Sniper Nicholas Irving

Irving earned the nickname “the Reaper” for purportedly killing 33 insurgents during a deployment to Afghanistan in 2009.

Rapper Jay Z is producing a six-part miniseries about Nicholas Irving, who earned the nickname “the Reaper” while serving with the U.S. Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion from 2004 to 2010.

According to Page Six, the show is being produced for NBC.

Irving, who grew up in Maryland, deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan and saw heavy combat throughout his career. During a four-month deployment to Afghanistan as a direct-action sniper in 2009, he purportedly killed 33 enemy combatants.

In addition to

being one of the deadliest snipers in American history, Irving, the son of two Cold War military veterans, holds the distinction of being the first African-American sniper to serve with 3rd Ranger Battalion.the-reaper

The six-part miniseries will be based on Irving’s 2015 memoir, “The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers,” which primarily focuses on Irving’s legendary 2009 Afghan deployment. A source told Page Six filming will begin early next year.

In a recent interview with Task & Purpose, Irving explained that he had written “The Reaper” during a four-day alcohol binge after leaving the Army. The memoir was initially self-published on CreateSpace.com and then picked up by St. Martin’s Press. Irving’s second book, “Way of the Reaper: My Greatest Untold Missions and the Art of Being a Sniper,” was published in August of this year.

Irving is also

a co-host of Fox’s “American Grit,” a reality series that premiered in April and was recently renewed for a second season.

Actor Sterling K. Brown, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Christopher Darden in FX’s critically acclaimed 2016 series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” will star as Irving, Page Six reports.

On Oct. 10, Irving confirmed the news on Instagram.

And another thing…

7Colin Kaepernick is starting for the 49ers this weekend. He is an embarrassment, his national anthem protest is disgusting and the 49ers are un-watchable. 3 years removed from the Super Bowl. Alex Smith has had a nice career since he lost his job and team to an injury…

As a professional Realtor for over 15 years, I have lucky enough to work with several companies and many different brokers. I have learned and gained experience through all of my interactions and transactions. I have continued to work diligently to nurture and support my network of clients, both buyers and sellers, Real Estate colleagues, investors and other professionals in related fields. By working on and developing relationships, I have been able to maintain and grow my business through the dramatic ups and downs in the Real Estate market over the past decade. I am, however, more than just a Real Estate professional, I’m also a neighbor, a friend, husband and father. I take a keen interest in people and their well-being, working hard to earn and maintain their trust and respect. My upbringing here in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as my professional experience, has given me the ability to work easily with a variety of Real Estate clients who have a variety of needs. From helping first-time home-buyers find that special home together, to strategizing with investors to find and secure wealth-building assets, I help navigate and problem-solve the complex processes and negotiations that are inherently part of this industry. I prefer to focus on the relationship rather than just the transaction, believing that a satisfied client will share my name with their friends and colleagues. This approach has helped me expand my local network to include the legal community involved with probate issues. And I am proud to be a preferred agent to a number of professionals in this area.
