    The World Famous Phil Hendrie Show podcasts have become my go-to commute time listening. I strongly recommend #886 from last Friday on the state of radio

    by HoopUte
    2017-04-28 12:57:51

    I had really missed Phil when he left radio, but have discovered his podcasts and they scratch the itch, aside from the fact there aren't duped callers not realizing Phil was all the voices.

    But more to the point, I just listened to last Friday's podcast, #886, yesterday and it was just Phil as Phil talking about the death of radio. He makes some real good points about how there is no longer real talent on the airwaves, just people sitting around expressing their opinions on whatever topic they want to exploit. IMO he's right: That takes little to no talent.

    Later yesterday while driving I heard a little of that new blathering nitwit at KSL, Drew Steele, blaming ESPN's lay-offs on how they've become political. I don't know if you've listened to Drew Steele, but he's just a local right-wing babbler. I laughed knowing that he is exactly what Phil Hendrie described.

    Most podcasts are meant to be funny. The new format has Phil with Margaret Grey, Gen. Galen Shaw, Bud Dickman, and a series of callers. You'll get to hear Jay Santos, Ted Bell, etc. My new favorite is the former pilot Al Griego. It's good to have Phil back in my life.

    Interesting read. Sounds like he's done some good introspection and intends to make sure things don't drift on him in the future. Can't fault that, IMO, although I'm sure some will try.

    Interesting data on what airlines bump people the most

    by HoopUte
    2017-04-11 11:18:00

    Before opening, take one guess at who leads among the top four US airlines.

    http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdet ail/2017/04/daily-chart-6?fsrc=gnews

    That said, SkyWest/ExpressJet is the worst for both voluntary and involuntary bumps. That has to have influence on both Delta and United's numbers as well, I would think. A couple of years ago SkyWest offered us $1500 each to bump off an SLC to Rapid City flight. We didn't take it because we were traveling with my 84 year old mother and the re-route would have taken us through Minneapolis and added 10 hours of travel time. She was reluctant to do that. All I could think of was there went a free trip to Europe for the wife and me, and that's one crazy business model to pay big sums for people to not be able to get on your plane.

    Internship Interview Tip

    2017-01-05 13:52:29

    Contrary to what I heard earlier today, the answer to the phone interview question:

    "Can you tell us a little about yourself and why you are interested in this position?"

    is not:

    "Well I'd like to get some more experience in your industry so after I graduate I could get a job with someone like [your competitor], [one of your customers], or maybe just with [your company]."

    Please make a note of it.

    Foster Farms Bowl Game Day Transportation Expertise Questions

    by HoopUte
    2016-12-19 09:59:31

    My wife and I are going to the FFB, flying into Oakland and planning to take BART over to the area of the Grand Hyatt where the team is staying. The Alumni Association has said they were looking into setting up bus transportation from the Grand Hyatt to the game, but that hasn't been sealed yet. Therefore, especially for any Bay Area Utes, what are the best alternatives? A couple of ideas we've had:

    1) BART as far as you can then take the commuter train that has the station near Great America, which is then a short walk to Levi's Stadium.

    2) Single day car rental for the day of the game. Cars are pretty damned expensive over that time period -- pushing $300 for the 27th to 29th. A twist on this if people were interested could be to rent a van and split the costs.

    3) Other ideas I have no idea about because I'm not in the Bay Area.

    TIA

    Go Utes!!

    One needs to only compare the lead paragraphs from the DNews/KSL v SLTrib to see the motives behind the audit

    by HoopUte
    2016-11-16 07:56:19

    Here it is from the Trib

    A comprehensive legislative audit of the University of Utah athletic department set off no financial alarms. Instead, auditors suggested Tuesday that the Utes do some tidying up in reporting finances, tracking inventory and facility access, and hiring and drawing up contracts for employees.
    Ordered in February by the state Legislature's audit subcommittee, the report recommended stronger adherence to university procedures across the board for Utah athletics all of which the department agreed to address in a hearing at the Capitol on Tuesday afternoon.


    And here from the DNews/KSL

    University of Utah basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak has yet to pay the $80,000 cancellation fee he vowed to personally cover for breaking a contract to play BYUthis year, according to a legislative audit released Tuesday.

    Instead, the university paid the fee and the coach will repay the money in four installments over four years. Krystkowiak made the first $20,000 payment from his Kyrstko Foundation, but auditors say they were unable to independently confirm if he used personal or donated funds.


    It always was, and forever will be, about Krystkowiak being the adult in the room and canceling the game with those dicks. As they spin away, later in the DNews/KSL story they characterize the debt in the U athletic department as a deficit. Uh, no. It's being repaid and the audit praises their finances.

    Just another reason why I wish we could just drop these bozos once and for all.

    The last time we played a football game on my birthday, my 50th, we won 50-0

    by HoopUte
    2016-11-07 08:54:34

    That's the memorable game against Wyoming when Joe Glenn gave Whit the finger. But I like the result. So, I assume we can win this week 59-0 if all goes well, or maybe it's two years from now when Nov. 10 actually is on a Saturday and it will be 61-0. I can work with either.

    At the risk of starting an argument, I'd like to solicit some input from bicyclists on hitch mount racks

    by HoopUte
    2016-07-29 18:45:20

    I've decided that I'm too old, and short, to keep dealing with a roof rack, so today I had a 2-in receiver hitch put on the car (at retirement I also plan on pulling something light) and am researching racks. (I can't believe someone won't twist that into something else very soon, but it will be worth it if there are pictures.) I'm going to go with a platform style so as not to hassle with none of the bikes in our household having straight top tubes.

    Anyway, good ones seem to be the Kuat NV 2, the Thule Doubletrack 2, and the Yakima Holdup 2. Does anyone have any direct experience with these, or others? Pros/Cons. I'm kind of leaning toward the Kuat right now because of ease of on/off the car, weight, and the built-in locks.

    OK, maybe the dog can sniff out digital media, but to zero that in as an ability to find porn is complete and total bovine excrement. How amazing is it anyway that a dog might be able to sniff out CDs or thumbdrives next to a computer? "Oooo, way to go URL. Good boy!" This dog could no more sniff out porn than detect whether or not there's a Golf Digest in my stack of magazines I haven't gotten to yet.

    I also saw a very similar post this morning in the FB Utenation group by someone else. It's really hard to imagine an attitude that contributes more to the Utah/BYU tensions than this. The bigotry expressed, and the entitlement these individuals feel to control everything in the state is practically beyond belief. People like this are a huge part of "the problem," and not Larry Krystkowiak, Chris Hill, or David Pershing.

    Hurt a little on turnovers (again), and what gets to me about that is I don't think I've ever seen a team get called for more illegal screens than it seems like we do this year. But all things considered, having Poeltl out for the last 4+ minutes, we are in good shape, especially with the short rotation for Duke.

    Zoobs being Zoobs, courtesy of KSL's resident nitwits

    My wife just called to tell me what she just heard on KSL radio while she was out driving around. She prefaced it with, "This will make you puke."

    What these bozos were saying was that they're sure that Kalani Sitaki will be the new coach, and the best way to make that announcement would be to have him carry the Zoob flag with the Zoob alumni as they race onto the field. In this fantasy world, the Zoobs would go crazy and have added motivation to start the game, while Utah players recruited by Sitaki would feel abandoned and hurt.

    I swear these guys wake up in the morning and drink their bathwater to start the day.

    Some on the board might recognize my responses in the comment section under my Discus monikor, but this doctor is a moron. First off, his premise that the only way into the VA is off of 500 South (even though he calls it Foothill Dr.) is incorrect. But it's his proposed solution under a fake guise of caring for Vets that really irked me. IMO the bottom line is this guy is whining about his inconvenience that's happened once, and somehow it never connected in his mind what that big stadium structure might be used for periodically and if that might affect him in any way.

    It's a beautiful day here. I won't say, "Let's play two," because that would run too late into Sunday.

    It's "blue out" for the UA fans. We are sitting with some friends from here tonight and I told them we would speckle the stadium with crimson and white.

    Primatologist Leslie Knapp, professor and chair of the [University of Utah's] Department of Anthropology, found that the smaller a howler monkey's testicles are, the deeper and louder his mating calls.

    "I really, really believed we had a great chance to win the game, going into it, and to not have played well, after really believing it was not possible that we wouldn't play well, the starting over part, to me, if I were to reframe it, we have played four games, we have won two, lost two. We have played well in three, not played well in one. And I think it is just a new start for the rest of the year," [Roscoe] clarified Monday.

    Right, but it's not his position to do either yet. You want to have it both ways. Guess what?

    Is he? He seems to be working with foreign governments already and influencing Carrier.

    My personal theory is this is a combination of a couple of things

    It will be interesting to see how the rotation changes when Barefield and Collette hit the floor. It's clear there's some guys playing now that are having to look over their shoulders.

    Funny, I said, "Oh $hit!" when it went through. It's all relative.
    (152 days ago, 0 stars)

    I'm torn. I save some money if it's the Sun Bowl because El Paso just doesn't seem worth it. But we are on the preorder list for the Foster Farms. Life's just got so many tradeoffs.

    We met some folks from Wisconsin a year ago and they were ready to run him out on a rail, but were saved the effort by him quitting.

    I think the crowd was very lifeless. I was stunned how many just sat on their hands during critical 3rd downs for Oregon. I couldn't figure it out.

    Word today is Greg Hughes is in contact with the Trump transition team. Just think about how much he can piss away in a Federal job.
    (159 days ago, 3 stars)

    That's all well and good, but I don't think I'm going to go erase that line I just drew thru the Rose Bowl on my bowl game preorder receipt.

    This is a statement that needs no further justification.

    One needs to only compare the lead paragraphs from the DNews/KSL v SLTrib to see the motives behind the audit

    I've pulled about 40% of it out of the market due to my lower risk tolerance (age will do that) and the predictions of at least a minor recession within the next year regardless of election outcome

    Nice backhand.

    You got a link tying me to your "y'all" statements?
    (171 days ago, 0 stars)

    Yup. My 401k is up over 325% from where it was in March 2009, and over 150% from Sept 2008

    Yesterday marked exactly 15 months from my targeted retirement date. I'm struggling a lot with this, too.

    Not trying to be insensitive, but if you're a booster, i.e. CC member, doesn't this potentially create problems for him and the U with the NCAA?

    Along those lines, I visited the Nixon Library and Museum a couple of weeks back

    I did see that, and risked eternal damnation anyway.

    That would seem to be one of only two plausible explanations, and the more charitable of the two at that.

    I got his call. You don't consider his own words where he says he's a "white nationalist" to be evidence?
    (178 days ago, 3 stars)

    There's a good ol' boy network in that part of the operation. He's got the job as long as he wants it, more than likely. Same with his inept spotters.
    (180 days ago, 1 stars)

    Kyle indicated injury and they expected him back on the post-game radio show. Edit: Same info as kazute's.
    (180 days ago, 0 stars)

    Agreed. It was totally unprofessional on both Runge's part and his spotters.

    This isn't the first time they've been accused of it. Apparently they did it against Grambling
