    RF, when I first moved down here, that casino bar was the only place I could find Crown Royal. Next time I'm downtown gonna give the Lima Soda a try. Never been there.

    When you figure out how to post pictures at EOG let me know?

    I have to post them to Facebook first before I can put them up here.

    John has regressed to the Brock Landers era in not knowing how to post pics.

    Fried seabass in garlic sauce.

    I gave the restaurant the ultimate compliment: A return trip in less than 24 hours.

    Heading there tonight to watch a few games.

    Several years ago, I met "The Judge" at Chubbs for a friendly get-together.

    Some of these "independent bookmakers" write some good business.

    There's a gentleman from Texas nicknamed BUBBA who uses the old poker room at the Del Rey to book sports nowadays.

    I've heard it said Costa Ricans don't really like Americans but they do like our money.

    1 USD equals about 570 colones.

    Just back after watching the Costa Rican National Basketball Team practice in preparation for an upcoming tournament.

    The term "ragtag" immediately came to mind when watching tonight's practice.

    A full report to be published tomorrow.

    I appreciate the scoring system down to the hundredth point.

    A score of 7.25 made me chuckle.

    Consider it done, Joe.

    I'm looking right now at the seven-story building housing CRIS with countless satellite dishes sitting atop the structure on Central Avenue.

    I chuckled at the presence of a security guard toting a machine gun near the front entrance.

    I'm loving my time here in San Jose, Costa Rica.

    Last night, I had a chance to watch the men's national basketball team from Costa Rica practice at National Gymnasium on the east side of Sabana Park.

    Putting in nicely, this ragtag outfit will find it impossible to compete on the international stage.

    In trying to find an American equivalent to the Costa Rican national team, they would have a hard time holding the court on a Saturday afternoon at your random (pick a city) 24 Hour Fitness gym.

    Coach Josh Erickson spent the better part of an hour trying to explain Wisconsin's swing offense to a team that had trouble grasping the basics of basketball.

    Erickson set a low bar for his team when he announced each member of the squad would take 12 free throws and if the group as a unit combined to hit at least 65% of their attempts, they would not have to run sprints.

    Sixty-five percent?

    I think they accomplished the feat (barely) because no one was running after the free-throw attempts.

    What the Costa Ricans lack in basketball talent, they more than make up for it with world-class soccer players.

    The men's soccer team has been a source of national pride and they'll be competing in the upcoming World Cup while their U.S.A counterparts watch on television.

    Coming up: A couple of pictures from my time watching the Costa Ricans play basketball.
