It’s FREEEEEEEEE!!!!! Free Root Beer Float!!

That’s right folks! Sonic will be giving out FREE root beer floats tonight from 8pm until they close, which if I recall is midnight!

We here in Orange County are lucky to have 2 Sonics! There are NONE in LA. The only 2 “close by” are in Hemet and Apple Valley.

The Anaheim location is on Lemon St just north of the 91 freeway. There’s also a Mission Viejo location (which I didn’t know about until now) located at Jeronimo and Los Alisos.

So go get it! And while you’re at it, take a picture of yourself and upload it to their website. Your face could grace their home page! Ooooohhhh! :-O

Go Titans!

Pano-View of Goodwin Field

One of the most underappreciated college teams in the country happens to be our very own Cal State Fullerton baseball team. 

I don’t know why, but hardly anyone seems to pay any attention to them, although they have won four National Championships in the Baseball College World Series since 1979, a better record than both the Dodgers and the Angels.  Combined.

They are consistently one of the highest-ranked college baseball teams in the country, and have an elite training program that has produced 43 Major League players.

It seems that the fightin’ Titans are on another nice streak, having just won against Utah to secure a spot against Louisville in the Super Regional.   They will be playing this weekend at CSUF’s Goodwin Field.

So why not treat yourself and the family to some good old-fashioned fun this weekend, minus the bazillion-dollar paychecks and egos. 

And, as a total aside, as I was doing some research, I stumbled across this entertaining page on Wikipedia.  Somehow Octomom has managed to earn a slot.  Sigh.

Tree falls on El Toro Road

This just happened a minute before I got to the scene.
A large pine fell and struck the front of a car travelling East on El Toro Road at Canyon Wren. There was minor damage to the front of the car, and the driver was not injured, albeit shook up by the incident.
Authorities have been notified and are on their way.
Update: I just drove by an hour later, and the lanes have been cleared and the crew was just finishing cutting up the fallen tree. It looks as if the tree rotted/ gave way at the rootball (See second photo below) and the weight of the tree toppled it.

more photos after the break
