Nick Zaharias guest spot: mark you are a dick

Nick Zaharias, who might have been Paly High Athlete of the Year in 1982 if not for a guy initials J.H., is an avid reader of Plastic Alto, and a frequent commenter, albeit under various fake names and email return addresses, (although WordPress also records his computer number, to its credit).

That I recently updated some info on the Jim Harbaugh admittedly self-hater hater rant, and also Niners fall to Seattle 19-3, occassioned some post-Thanksgiving pus from the formerly decent athlete, probably glad I don’t know him better guy:

from Zagman (unless there is a Gonzaga alumni, besides Mr. Z, who follows both Paly football and WCAC basketball and Origins records in Seattle to lead him regularly to this little spec of dots in the multiverse): Mark You Are a Dick.

Thanks, Nick. For not calling me a “vagina”.
P.S. can you forward to me that photo of you where you are either dressed as Herman Munster or Abraham Lincoln, I presume for Halloween unless the years have not treated you too well and that’s what you are kinda going for 365.

And you probably don’t get Tedeschi Trucks either. It’s in 4.

edit to add, ten minutes later: No, seriously, Nick. Let me buy you a beer, at Old Pro and I’m sure you will see that none of this is offensive and I mean you no harm. I wish you well. And Jim (“Our Boy Jim”).

I said this to Diepenbrock and Kheaton Scott just the other day: anybody who I competed AGAINST thirty or thirty five years ago now by osmossive or the horizon-point-math-thingy overtime becomes in effect a type of teammate. Who cares who wore red and who wore green? It was just such a gift to be able to run around and get sweaty and sometimes put that ball thru that hoop, or catch that pass, chase down that fly ball, all that.

Nick you are my brother and my friend and teammate, and if I hurt your feelings I am man enough to own up to it and make you whole. I think a beer is the logical offering. Agreed?

Yes, Nick I am a dick.

Nick, you are my brother.

And good luck to Steve Brown coaching at Summit High in Redwood city.

Xago Juarez in the house

Luis Xago Juarez and Armando Castellano, Menalto, November, 2104 dar gracias yo

Luis Xago Juarez and Armando Castellano, Menalto, November, 2104 dar gracias yo


Xago Juarez, aka Luis Juarez, the professor at SJSU and from Salinas, where John Steinbreck lived when he wrote “In Dubious Battle” hangs at Cafe Zoe a place for peace hope humanity and community for reals — and did I mention I am still processing my Earthwise@20 hear? — with his friend from this hood the hoodie this time but probably not the “hoodio” too much too much to hope for — Isaiah “here i am send me” excuse the digression, dig — Armando Castellano, the French horn director celebrando la musica clasica Latinoamericano; both men with ear plugs and tunes rockin’ and cranking away on their respective instruments — as I am, the other side of the window — I pause una pausa muy breve — to shoot them one more time hit them one more time.

I retreated back to my statins quick enough not to offend I hope and did not get back to my main riff: is this about class as much as ethnicity and so-called but not by me “race”?

Stay tuned.

We got next.

edit to add a few minutes later, although my computer seems to think or WordPress seems to think I am updating from an hour ago not from now: off all the dangling threads here, the one I tugged was to try to reach Steven Bernstein thru his guy Edelstein I’ve never met, and I am trying to find the name of the French Horn player, Paul something, who was in Diaspora Suite at Bottom of the Hill, January 27, 2008, I have pictures, I have Steven’s cell and landline in my old stupid cell phone, the search-injuns should have this or did have this but apparently don’t: mazel tov, l’hitrout and HIT ME!! And I tap not a high hat but “ethnicities” which is very specifically Plastic Alto code for “jewish” In jew-bias battle mode. Stein-breck. argh argh argh
