USC Notes: Low Expectations For Baseball And Folt Starts Promoting!

Remember last week I wrote about Carol Folt wanting the USC-Arizona game played on Saturday because of “Trojan Family Weekend?”

Well, it didn’t take long for Folt to promote the weekend now that she has a Saturday football game as the centerpiece as this graphic was sent out this week.

What time will the prawn sandwiches be served in Alumni Park?

  • USC baseball was picked to finish 10th in the 11-team Pac-12 coaches’ preseason poll.

It’s not exactly surprising given the way the program imploded under Jason Gill and the player transfers last summer.

New coach Andy Stankiewicz is going to need some time to rebuild the program. If USC’s pitching is able to perform this season, USC might exceed expectations.

    1. Well at least ‘Without-a-Folt’ did not piggy-back her ‘Family Weekend’ onto the November SC-sucla football game or was that only because she was outvoted by Bon-Bon and Wiley?

    2. I wonder Michael if SC will fare better in the Big-10 where they cannot play ball the year around like at SC although it does not seem to have done the Trojans much good

      1. LJ, my interpretation of the Missus EdG post is that Missus Ed is trying to schedule the prawn preparers for the prawn sandwiches, and that owns should be the guy who deveins the prawns rather than john (Scottie).

      1. What a sorry piece of crap you are in these times of world struggles.
        You act like a moron with little education. Must be the only four
        letter word in your vocabulary..


    1. Well, at least he’s doing something other than showing the entire blog how butt hurt he still is. That’s more than I can say for “some”.


    2. Too bad he can hardly go a day without crying. But then again, the fool doesn’t know the difference between laughing & crying.

      Laughing = What many of us here do in response to Dementia Joe’s failures & gaffes.

      Crying = Someone who feels the need to mention me without me having even posted.

      Denial about these simple FACTS coming in 3, 2, 1…


      1. Too bad he can hardly go a day without crying about Biden. But then again, the fool doesn’t know the difference between laughing & crying.

        Laughing = What many of us here do in response to Slo troll’s failures & gaffes.

        Crying = Someone who feels the need to mention me without me having posted, and his profound admiration for Joe

        Denial about these simple FACTS coming in 3, 2, 1…


    1. Slo troll said, watching a baseball game takes the same patience as staring at the side of his outhouse as the wet paint goes.


  2. Don’t find baseball boring at all. It seems to have the perfect pace to snack on a bag of peanuts, sip on a beer, and talk with a good friend without interfering with ones concentration on the game. And the magical part is that the smallest development, a missed third strike call, can change the whole complexion of the game.

  3. –Got to put a plug in for music composer Burt Bacharach, dead at 94
    Now don’t you go and get any ideas George Tirebiter, you hear–

    Cherry-picking some of the best lines from his songs–
    Do you know the way to San Jose…L.A. is a great big freeway. Put a hundred down and buy a car In a week, maybe two, they’ll make you a star…And all the stars that never were are parking cars and pumping gas

    Love found– The moment I wake up Before I put on my makeup I say a little prayer for you. At work, I just take time And all through my coffee breaktime I say little prayer for you

    And– I’ve heard some talk They say you think I’m fine Yes, I’m in love And what I’d do to make you mine…I need your love I want your love Say you’re in love in love with this guy–If not, I’ll just die

    And– On the day you were born the angels got together And decided to create a dream come true So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold And starlight in your eyes of blue

    Love as Joyous Frivolity– I’ve got flowers and hours to spend with you So go and powder your cute little pussycat nose…You’re so thrilling and I’m so willing to care for you So go and make up your little pussycat eyes…You’re delicious and if my wishes can all come true I’ll soon be kissing your sweet little pussycat lips…You and your pussycat lips You and your pussycat eyes You and your pussycat– nose

    Love Ended or Run Aground– What’s it all about, Alfie? Is it just for the moment we live? What’s it all about when you sort it out, Alfie? Are we meant to take more than we give? O are we meant to be kind

    Or–One less bell to answer One less egg to fry One less man to pick up after I should be happy But all I do is cry

    Or– Blue on blue, heartache on heartache Blue on blue now that we are through Blue on blue, heartache on heartache And I find I can’t get over losing you…I walk along the street we used to walk– Two by two, lovers pass And as they’re passing by, I could die ‘Cause you’re not here with me

    But there is Optimism– So I just did me some talking to the sun And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done Sleeping on the job Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling…But the blues they send to meet me Won’t defeat me, it won’t be long Till happiness steps up to greet me…’Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complaining Nothing’s worrying me

    Finally, Adventure– Have you ever dreamed of a place Far away from it all Where the winter winds will never blow And living things have room to grow…Many miles from yesterday before you reach tomorrow Where the time is always just today There’s a lost horizon– waiting to be found

    Here is hoping you have found your ‘lost horizon,’ Burt

    1. Thanks for that LJ. BB was a talented writer, composer, and musician. Being married to Angie Dickinson adds to the aura. He also had some truly wonderful singers for his songs – Dionne Warwick and Karen Carpenter. I think that the idea that a truly beautiful women respects you, loves you, thinks about you, and prays for you is what keeps men and western civilization afloat and BB captures that sentiment in his lyrics.

    2. Footnote Regarding “I Say A Little Prayer.”
      Dionne Warwick explained the song this way: “It was written during the period of the Vietnam War. I believe Hal David was singing very, very seriously about our babies over there. And I must say this: it was a senseless war. And children—that’s exactly what they were, 18, 19, 20 years old babies—were over there fighting the silly war. And it was a way of saying how much we missed them, how much we loved them, how much we prayed for them and wanted them to come on home.”
      Burt and Hal David were a wonderfully creative songwriting team and Dionne was the perfect voice for their creations. RIP Burt.
