I thought I would never say that. But during the silly time of the off season I have come to realize I miss him. I can only imagine the postings that we would have seen last year...

Or is like a high school romance - far better to have her permanently in your memory than how it would be to see her having gained 250 pounds and having a smoking habit ;-)

Never understood most posts. For some inexplicable reason there were asian women, women doing yoga, women who were supposed to be cerebral I guess, comments that inferred certain coaches were dirty (I kinda got those posts, but didn't know the specifics), and what must have been insider comments. And then every once in while a post on Cal basketball. Finally there was this mass argument, and I simply gave-up. Someone should write a history of Bear Insider (Bearister?). The Monster Thread would make an excellent chapter in the bizarre.

I'm thinking Nurse Jackie type conduct involving a pestle and straw may have fueled some of the more incoherent posts, kinda like tRump's early morning tweets.

His drivel had no redeeming value. he shared information that was pretty readily available. When he started his thread, he was having fun and it was hoops focused. As time went by he acted more childlike and attacked players (some connected to Cal) and fans alike. He got his jollies posting the photos of women he found on the Internet and acting like he was all knowing. He should post on the ASU board where his wife matriculated and now his daughter attends. It would be fine to have him back if he posted like he did starting back in 2012. The later era Shocky was an @$$.....

Tom, it really pi$$es me off that you can routinely say something like "as disgusting as Ivanka touching the Stanley cup" and think that's OK.

A huge reason our country is divided is because your half thinks it OK to say trash like that indiscriminately without the other half of the country noticing or being bothered. You think this way because the MSM thinks the same and encourages it. And in California the percentage thinking like you is more like 60%.

But in neither this State or the Country as a whole do all people think like you. And the 50%!of the country that disagrees is sick and tired of it.


ps I miss Shocky too and he hates Trump as much as you.

You know what pi$$es me off? That we have to endure his horrible face on tv each day, his words splashed on the screen, and his long term debt-producing, environmental-wrecking, and risky foreign policy forays. What's worse is the portion of the country that is deceived and thinks his behavior is okay. The ruination of us all.

I don't think anyone cares that you can't stand Trump. However, your choice to demonstrate it on a Cal sports forum on a regular basis is the issue. I can only assume you are aware there is a percentage of people on this board that are okay with Trump in office, and you are fine with insulting that segment of cyberbear deplorables.

But seriously, decrying the conduct of people like Shocky and Trump by acting the same is rather hypocritical, don't you think?

Sigh, let me try and explain. Trump is the one you ostensibly hate but you rip his daughter. Reminiscent of Samantha Bee calling Ivanka the c- - - word.

And Samantha the brainiac did so in indignation over a picture dating to the Obama administration but wrongly attributed to Trump.

My apologies for jumping into the fray on this but after the ugly recent words from Bee I felt compelled to defend the first daughter...

The problem with your analysis is the 40% of this country who are lapping up Trump's extraordinary evil. So the danger is that, without finding some way to enlighten that group, just getting rid of the ghoul at the top, be it Trump, Rasputin or Kaiser Wilhelm, still leaves you with the equivalent of post-monarchy Russia or post-WWI Germany.

Not to mention the great golf courses of the world -- and (whatever anybody says) pretty nice relationships with a lot of the players (based on those to whom he introduced me) -- and also an appreciation for various types of music with which I have not been in vibration, but which I learned to appreciate through him, e.g., Lana Del Ray (in that way which seemingly tossed-off pop songs can sometimes capture deeper understandings) -- and probably more ---- Certainly IRONY, a greater appreciation for which this board could do well to have.

Seems fitting.... someone mentions Shocky and we all went Off Topic.
In fact, I had forgotten that this was the hoops board and not the Off Topic board itself. My apologies.

To NV's initial point, I will say that you put words in my mouth, increased by someone else who likened my comment to Samantha Bee. Please. Try and understand that my initial post was intended with an amount of lightheartedness and facetiousness. SoCal and I have been going back and forth here for years, and we are nearly always aligned with one another. Thus, when he broke ranks, which even he was admitting wa surprising to him, by saying he missed Shocky, I went all hyperbole on him by calling HiM disgusting. We have a past relationship, you should know. We starred in a film together, produced by him. It won a "BIski" for the month.

(FYI: a BIski is a Bear Insider Oscar, awarded by Oski, thus BIski)

I continued the joke to mention Ivanka because there was a series of recent headlines (perhaps I falsely assumed you'd seen them) where she and troubled rich kid hubby happened to be at the same DC restaurant as Alex Ovechkin who was dining with THE Stanley Cup. A photo op occurred and Ivanka was touching the Cup in it, promptly folks to comment on social media that she had forever tainted the Cup. I thought that was kinda funny, if for only how over the top ridiculous it was, kinda like me calling SoCal disgusting, kinda like him saying he missed Shocky.

Hey, wait a minute.... oh, okay.... I get it. You got me. I only just now realized that you guys were in on the act. It IS a Trump world we live in... I see what you did there, very good, har har har.... you, TOO we're going over the top in your flaming me as well. Comparing my little bit of humor to Samantha Bee and her use of C*** vocabulary. Oh how fitting.

I see how this works now! It IS a Trump world we live in these days. That was very good. We are ALL just speaking in hyperbole. And that's the joke!

Spicer: "The LARGEST crowd ever"
Bee: "Ivanka is a ..."
SoCal: "I miss Shocky"
Me: "You are disgusting"
You: "You just called Ivanka a ...."

Cool. Okay, I'm good.
Love you all, and see you on the OT, where Shocky and his hyperbolic attempts to be "hip" originally belonged.

Jarvanka was bound to get hit by some of the blowback caused by the cesspool tactics of her father and the very nasty pieces of work that support him. Give us a break.

Lol.
I'll take it a step further, Bear. And this is straight up!
All those Trump voters also signed up for this crazy circus.
They didn't shirk too much when he went up on stage with 16 other Republicans and immediately began to assail them with insults the like we've never seen in modern politics. They don't wince at the fact that he has the indecency to screw around on his wife with a porn star right after his THIRD wife gave birth to his son. And they don't have a reasonable appreciation for how such leadership erodes at our culture. Apparently, Bear and my complaints are only a consequence of their indifference!
Blame yourselves for our scathing reviews. We are only following the example of YOUR leader.

I don't like Trump much, but people like De Niro are losing any chance to see a change. People are sick about Trump dominating the news. People are no longer listening to the news. People are longer no watching award shows. People don't come to off topic anymore.

Are you implying the conservative half does not do the exact same thing? Both wings belittle and demonize each other, the difference is that the political and media leaders for the conservatives also partake in these attacks. There is no liberal equivalent for Donald Trump's attack, there is no liberal equivalent for Fox news attacks on both the truth and liberals. Hell, you don't even have to be a liberal for the Trump / Fox machine to attack you indiscriminately, you just have to place America before Trump to induce the ire of the conservative attack machine.
