    My old boss once told his kid he had to stick with baseball for three years because it took that long to learn to play the game. So he couldn’t quit until he’d learned to play because only then would he know if he liked it or not. Much crying but he stuck with it.

    It was just a 2-gamer, they come home to start the BB series Friday. I saw the final score and watched a YouTube that ended right after the 12th inning safe call. WTF? I thought the Giants won? Then found another video showing replay result and the 13th. I like seeing a higher percentage of calls end up correct in spite of the delay but was it obviously an out when viewed on a big high def screen? Hate losing Belt yet again, that dudes career has been snake bit by injury.

    He and a couple of others in the office played softball in one of the more competitive leagues. The kind with one home run rules. All played high level baseball (one's kid is at university on a baseball scholarship. D1 baseball).

    I think he was gonna be pissed if the tradition of baseball in all his boys.

    Did you fix it? Possible maybe it just got old enough or was knocked off by a bump or something. When my spark plug blew and became loose last year, it was a bad knocking sound as the spark plug was literally just seated in the slot and free-bouncing around.

    Bro you are right. That’s exactly what happened. It came loose and was bouncing around. I tightened it this morning and all is good now. Appreciate the knowledge bro!

    is yours a 4 or 6 cylinder? My old 4 banger blew a spark plug out and dented the underside of the hood. Had to have it heliocoiled.

    3.4 6 Cylinder, I was surprised it made it 150 miles round trip in 105 degree heat that day. I got lucky.

    Awesome! Glad you found the source and fixed it! That rattle sound is awful… sounds like the engine is about to go. Lol

    Probably not, but maybe I'll swing an overnight trip somewhere on Saturday (or maybe Friday and Saturday) and hit it on the way back to the Bay.
