It would be an interesting change of rules if the batter could opt not to run on a hit.
And by "interesting", I mean still not interesting enough for me to watch.

That rule is a key difference between baseball and cricket. In (traditional) test cricket the batter is not obligated to run after hitting the ball. And a complete test match can take five days. To speed things up the rules have been adjusted to limit the overall number of pitches thrown in a game. That encourages something happening for the fans to watch.

Video is on instagram... but it shows more, and has sound. Bear was a mama, protecting her cubs. Cubs fled at the first sound of the dogs. Mama stayed to fight. Girl was protecting her dogs.

From youtube...

Holy ****! That bear had cubs!!!
Now I've gone from thinking the girl was brave, to firmly convinced she was crazy!

Fascinating, from overhead it all looks so horizontal and flat!

Where's the part with the chainsaws?

This brings back some memories. As an undergrad at UC San Diego we had some unusual professors. 1970-1973. One Math prof was also a well known juggler. I used to loiter in the hallway in hopes of catching a performance. Now that you made me look him up I am sad to find out of his recent death.

https://cse.ucsd.edu/about/news/ron-...cian-1935-2020

And speaking of bicycles, in 1972-73 I lived in Del Mar and commuted daily to La Jolla (school) on my PX10, sewups donít you know. This route features the famous Torrey Pines grade from sea level up to the top of the mesa. 380 ft elevation at the golf course. A good workout, but I was young then so no problem.

thanks for the memories.

Wow, Ron Graham, I didn't know he started (and ended) at UCSD. I don't think I ever met him, but I certainly knew of him and was in his 'academic neighborhood' when he was at Bell Labs and DIMACS (Rutgers/Princeton/BellLabs Math/CS consortium). And I knew he was Erdo"s most frequent host/patron. (I am lucky and proud to have an Erdo"s number of 3 )

I go up that once a year with my group of friends that rides Port2Port2Port2Port, hitting (and stopping for beer at) Pizza Ports in San Clemente, Carlsbad, Solana, and OB. There was always a divide between the young guns who raced up the steeper inside route, and the old farts who ground up the big road. Because I'm an old fart I always took the road. But one year I tried the inside, and discovered, if you're not treating it as a race, let yourself go 2-3mph, it's much nicer! Lovely views, no cars whizzing by, and it's over quicker.

I always quite enjoyed Torrey Pines Grade... both down and up... And I quite miss the old Torrey Pines road... Back before they realigned it, and back before the big development of bio-meds on the top, Torrey Pines road was a stately, lightly traveled, (most of the time) tree lined, boulevard, shaded by tall eucalyptus trees with few stop lights or signs. (I believe only the hospital and General Atomics were on top of the ridge, back then) I think only the intersection at La Jolla Shores drive had a light... and maybe Genesee. It was a cruise from UCSD to the light at the entry to Del Mar. Then came development, lots of driveways and stop lights, and of course more, faster traffic. SIGH

Inside verses outside... I did outside most of the time... for me, as then a young man, it was a power sprint up that hill... (similar to the old Mission Gorge Road hill). I would either sit and spin... or on my best days, get out of the saddle and "run" it.

I eventually did the "inside," but as an older rider. Hard to say which is better... inside the cars were fewer, and it was quieter, but the road is steeper in places and narrow.

More than once I did the "twin century" ride to Long Beach with AYH, and coming back to San Diego, TPG was sort of the end terminus... the finish line. Make that grade at the end, and you felt like you had accomplished something. Take the rest of the weekend off.

Regarding the Port Port Ride... OMG... after one or two of those IPAs... I would be done. (but happy)

My personal beer rides were either to Dulzura and the Dulzura Cafe, or up to Carlsbad... either from North Park. (don't remember the place I went to in Carlsbad... tiny bar with pictures of a boxers on the walls). Either way, one Coors and then back Home. It all depended on whether I wanted a mountain ride or a beach ride.

Sorry to steal the GIF thread with a bike discussion... but Torrey Pines Grade just brings back so many memories. (from the last freakin' century, man... Oh so long ago)

Fortunately, there's enough oldsters in the group to keep the average pace down to like 10-11mph. Still, each year the ride reinforces my strong desire to never ride a Century.

Shame on you! But actually, if we don't get some occasional bike content in here, the mods might take this away from us like P&R. (Just joshin, I don't really mind that P&R is gone, I have a vague urge/itch now that I have nobody to chat about news with, but life is more peaceful and that's a good thing)

Just about every weekend back in the late '70s and early '80s I faithfully made the ride to either Dulzura or Carlsbad... it was my weekend "thang." I would ride out and have that one Coors, and ride back and then have a Grolsh. Those rides where roughly ~65 miles in the mountains or ~80 miles on the relative flats of the coast... and I bike commuted to work... didn't own a car... to me, a century was "nothing." The AYH twin century was merely a "group ride" with a camp out in the middle. Of course... that was a long time ago...

BTW, I miss P&R... but yeah, no doubt it was becoming "difficult" to manage.

aw, well I will continue to absent myself, at least for a while. I kinda suspected it might actually just be a limited-time cooling off period. I hope people learned their lesson and behave better.
