  • Did the NBA do the right thing.....or go too far?

    ...It has to be tough enough playing second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles without having to deal with the type of off the court issues plaguing the L.A. Clippers right now....ESPECIALLY while in the midst of the post season.....Donald Sterling (Clippers owner...at least for now) didn't just get slapped by NBA commisioner Adam Silver drop kicked Sterling into another universe due to Sterling's comments recently caught on tape that certainly had undertones most would consider ugly to say the least.....Sterling has been banned for life from any and all NBA activities...fined 2.5 million dollars....and instructed to sell the L.A, Clippers.....the NBA certainly is not playing when it comes to this kind of thing......and to be honest I don't think they should...Sterling's comments were without a doubt racially discriminating in nature and as far as I am concerned there is simply no room in the NBA or any other league for that kind of thing....none......zero......Some would say perhaps Silver was too tough on him....I mean a lifetime ban??? ....forcing him to relenquish control over his team??... and I can certainly appreciate their viewpoint....however I also feel the NBA had no choice other than to put their foot down and make a resoundingly LOUD and impossible to ignore point....they had to stand up and say ....THIS SIMPLY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED HERE......and I respect them for doing so....it is 2014 after all....one would like to think we are beyond all that.....I do hope you are having a great Wednesday and hope to see you soon! Rick

  • ....What to do on a Tuesday.....

    I do hope you are having an outstanding Tuesday!....LOTS of big things on the horizon...Steel Panther.....Queensryche....Tesla......35th B Day Bash with Motley Crue/Alice Cooper...not to mention Riverfest!!...the NBA lowering the boom on the Clippers owner today.....was it too much or not enough?....I would have to say they were in a position that dictated they take a stand and pretty much had to do something....NFL draft around the corner as well and that should be interesting to say the least.....rumors of Dallas trading up to get Johnny Football.....not holding my breath on it though lol....will be out and about soon ..hope to see you! Rick

  • Could this be the Seventh Sign??

    .....I honestly have always believed I would never see the day......I have always thought that if I did it would HAVE to be the seventh sign of the apocalypse......What I am referring to is....George Clooney....according to some reports....may have gotten engaged to be married within the last several days!!!!.....I will believe it when I see it....but if so.....I would have to say it's fairly cold if not frozen over in Hades......Steel Panther on way town and that show will flat out rock!!.....we will be announcing yet ANOTHER show very soon so by all means stay close to T95! Rick

  • New music from......Metallica????

    ..It has been over 6 years since Metallica released a new full length.....which means it is easily time for them to do so !!....Lars Ulrich in a recent interview claims they are in the progress of putting a new album of material together and while refusing to pinpoint a timeline he did say 2015....maybe early 2016.....and he also indicated he felt they did have a certain percentage of it somewhat complete....When it comes to Metallica I am all about them taking their time...because I know it will be well worth the wait......with any luck they will be touring the states after their European trek....I will be at Pleasures tomorrow night please come out and see me while sipping on three dollar you call its! Hope to see you out and about soon......Rick

  • Yankees pitcher EJECTED!

    .....Wassupppp!!! Welcome to Thursday! NFL Draft around the corner.....NBA playoffs under way....and of course the greatest game God ever gave us....Baseball.....is BACK!!!...Yankees starting pitcher getting ejected early in their game in Boston last night for using a foreign substance on the ball....which is nothing new....pitchers all over the league do it all the time...it's more or less expected.....however most are just a little less obvious about it......I will be in attendance at Kaufman Stadium June 8th when the Yankees are in town to take on the mighty KC Royals and I can not wait!!!......I do hope you are having a great Thursday and will see you out and about soon! Rick

  • Happy b day to the one and only.......William Shakespeare!

    "It is not in the stars to hold our destiny....but in ourselves".....William Shakespeare

  • Baseball well under way.......NBA playoffs booting off as well

    ...To be honest I have never really been much of an NBA guy.....loooooove college hoops....just never really get into the NBA.....at least during the regular season that is......mainly because of the lack of defensive effort....the shorter shot clock which takes so much strategy from the game....the 6 fouls rule which is pretty much useless....the overall lack of hustle/discipline......however when the post season hits things do get taken to another level and the NBA becomes watchable.....not to mention more than somewhat exciting......sat up last night till well after eleven watching a first round game....there is absolutely no doubt that post season NBA is much more intense and driven than the regular season....guys start to play defense...they start to work their tails off on both ends....and the result is some excellent basketball.......Baseball off to a decent start...hard to tell how well my beloved Yankees will do considering the entire AL East is pretty knotted up so far......KC off and running and you gotta love that.......do hope you are having a most excellent Monday!! Rick

  • New music on the way from........Godsmack.....Tool?.......

    ...Word around the campfire is that Godsmack will be kicking out a new full length by the end of the year...I have yet to hear any of it obviously...however Sully recently stated they had several songs in the can that were nothing short of incredible.....being the HUGE Godsmack fan that I am .....I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!.....Am also hearing talk of a new Tool record by the end of the year as well....however will not hold my breath as I have heard this a couple times before....It would be HUGE however if they were to release.....Be listening to T95 for new music from Pearl Jam....Pop Evil....Linkin Park....and others!!! I do hope you are having a great Monday! Rick

  • The Ultimate Warrior is Gone but not Forgotten

    James Hellwig....otherwise known as "The Ultimate Warrior" to professional wrestling fans worldwide, passed away yesterday at the age of 53.....now before I go much further let me start by saying that yes I totally get it.....pro wrestling match outcomes are pre determined and it's not real yada yada yada.... most wrestling fans, however, (myself included) simply don't care...we embrace it for what it is...which is a male soap opera., massive carnival, and gigantic spectacle all rolled into one bohemath of a show....we value the entertainment aspect to such an extent we are willing to suspend reality....to put it simply for those who don't understand why we follow it.......It's fun.....plain and simple......and the Ultimate Warrior brought something into the world of professional wrestling that went beyond just the showmanship....he brought an energy that was nothing short of electric....he flat out opened doors for people like The Rock.....John Cena.....even Randy Savage....his athleticism combined with his explosive entrances and high volume ring performances that would simply awe entire arenas earned him a well deserved spot in the WWE hall of fame.....Rest in peace Brian....gone yes...forgotten...not a chance. Rick

I wanna tell you about what else is on the way but can't this very second......be listening to T95 though because very soon we shall do so!!....Shameless finished off the season the other night....now what will I do with my Sunday nights???.....will be out and about this weekend so I do hope to see you soon! Rick

  • So long Mickey Rooney....we hardly knew ya

    Mickey Rooney passed away yesterday at the age of 93.....what a life.....I mean think about it...at one time he actually performed in silent films......a career that span 9 decades!!!...It is difficult enough to simply make a living in the entertainment business.....let alone thrive in it for 9 decades.....what an accomplishment......rest in peace Mickey you have earned it.....Jeter surpasses Molitor on the all time hits list and now sets his sights on the Yaz!!!.....THE STREAK HAS COME TO AN END! Undertaker losing to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania yesterday.........wow......NO ONE saw that one comming...anyways I do hope you are having a great Monday! Rick

  • Goodbye Mr. Letterman

    ....Dave Letterman announced he will retire ....and as much as I always knew the day would come.....it's still just kind of difficult to imagine late night tv without Letterman.....to me Letterman was sort of a pioneer.....a pioneer in the sense that he was really the first late night talk show host to come along and prove to the world that you didn't have to be stuffy and uptight in order to host late night successfully....something that many thought simply coudln't be done....and he did it extremely well.....which is why he shall be sorely missed.....Chevelle will be in town at the Cotillion in under two weeks and that show is gonna rock!!!! Pleasures tomorrow night please stop by and say hi! Rick

  • BASEBALL IS BACK!!!

    ...Opening Day......just the words themselves bring forth such joy!!!! Baseball by far has always been my favorite sport....nothing even comes close...the chess match that occurs....the anything can happen style of it......the nothing less than heavenly thought of sitting on the third base line for a double header on a brisk summer day.....Baseball is more than just sport.....and I am so glad Opening Day is finally here!!!!! We are also another day closer to the T95 35th B Day bash not to mention Chevelle at the Cotillion!!! Hope to see you out and about soon....Rick
