Tribute to the Legends is an exclusive west coast engagement. Known as the Ragga Muffins Festival in Long Beach and Oakland; it is the largest reggae function in San Diego. This year we paid tribute to Gregory Isaacs, an amazingly talented roots reggae artist known for his lovers-rock beats. Isaac’s played last year but passed shortly after in October, it only makes sense that we pay tribute to him this year. Some artists said their peace about him and others played covers of his songs. The reggae community will miss him.
The biggest game of the season is here and the Montezuma Monster is bringing the momentum to a level of madness. Men’s College basketball is heating up and the game breakers are beginning to separate themselves from the pack.
For the first time in a long time San Diego can enjoy the moment at hand. For the first time in SDSU’s basketball history, we can be confident that we will make the NCAA Championship Tournament. The Monster wants to over eat. San Diegan’s and especially The Show want to the Aztecs to make a deep run. Read more
Hate it. Love it. Spend it or profit from it – The fact is that when the supply of a good or service is high in demand with relatively low supply, the cost of that good or service is going to be high. In this specific case I am referring to the ticket prices to be entertained by billion dollar business entities BOSTON RED SOX and New York Yankees. Having been to several Red Sox games over the years, and a few games between the clubs, I can state that it is an experience and worth spending a bit more. But $750 for a Spring Training game where guys wearing triple digit numbers and no names on their jerseys are playing from the 4th inning on??? Read more
Every once and a while we like to put a challenge out to our readers. Today we are going to give you a little IQ Test to get your brain working early. Take your time on this as the answer maybe be easier than you think. If you have any IQ tests or challenges you would like me to post, send them my way. We will be doing a weekly IQ/Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader post in the Mornin’ Coffee starting next week. Remember to start you day off with a joke and a fact with RollinSD’s Mornin’ Coffee.

So it’s a Saturday morning in February and here I am, trying to wake up at a startling 10 o’clock and shake off my hangover from the night before. Why? Because I am about to spend my day watching grown people get hammered and peg each other in the face with Nerf balls. I can’t think of a better reason to roll out of bed early and crack a beer. I rouse my roommate and faithful companion and we are on our way. The time? 10:48 AM. After a failed trip to the YMCA to find this catastrophe (The event is a YMCA benefit and I got kind of confused in my morning fog), I found myself in the parking lot of a bar called “In Cahoots” in Mission Valley.

Now this is advertising. I am hoping some of the moms at my son’s school see this and get all pissed off. Why would they get pissed off? I don’t know, maybe because they have nothing better to do than worry about what other people are doing. This is effective advertising and it should be brought to the US. Don’t worry about the fatties who will be offended by this. They are driving mini vans anyways and won’t be looking at a BMW. Read more
The news of the absurd is back again! After reading this one, it was just too good to pass up. Surgeons from China successfully removed a 4 inch knife that was embedded in the skull of 30 yr. old ‘Li Fuyan’. What’s the big deal about this, one might ask? Knife injuries show up every day at the ER across the U.S. This is where it gets interesting; the knife was in his skull for the last 4 yrs. Yes! 4 yrs. You see, Li was a victim of robbery and was stabbed beneath his right jaw. Read more
We started doing a caption contest months back and I dropped the ball and didn’t stay current with it. Well, in a few weeks we will be starting an all new caption contest and we will have very nice gift cards to some very nice places so you don’t want to miss out on this. The contests will always begin on a Monday. It will run for a week, then, the following Monday, we will announce a winner and start a new contest. Read more
Hey Rollers. It’s me, Lourdes. You’re not-so-local Vegas gal. With my first RollinSD post, I thought it would be rude of me not to introduce myself.
I’m going to say it. I, am a Yankee fan and had to convince TMTMTL that I would be a good contributor and not rip on his Red Sox too much. As such, I honestly pay no attention to the National League. I apologize. Although, I will say that as your newest RollinSD sports contributor, I will make large efforts to pay some attention. I do, after all like baseball and well, you have the Padres.

The Padres like to keep it in the family. Whether it was Marcus and Brian Giles, Adrian and Edgar Gonzalez, or Scottie and Jerry Hairston Jr. for the past three season the Padres have had a pair of brothers on the team. A coincidence like this is only fitting for an organization called the Padres. If guys are walking around the clubhouse calling each other “brother”, it makes sense. How else should a club that honors Franciscan monks greet each other? It is the only customary way for true Friars to act. Unfortunately, having two siblings playing on the same team has not lead the Padres anywhere in the postseason. Read more
The internet is an amazing thing and more and more cool applications are coming out daily. Facebook is a social site and I’m sure people use it to try to date or pick up on others. Well, if that’s why you are on facebook, because of secret crushes on past high school sweethearts or maybe a Rollin Hottie, you need to download this application. This will notify you whenever someone you have that crush on has changed their status. The best part of this is, the person you are looking at, will not know you are doing it. Read more
Cell phones have already come such a long way and I only see them becoming more and more advanced. Soon, you will not have any need for a home computer. Your cell phone will just plug into a monitor and key board and boom, you are all set up. I finally stepped up on Friday and upgraded to the Droid. I have been holding off for as long as I could but finally broke down. I traded in my phone that was the size of a small microwave and now am with the times. So, now I am learning about all these new applications for phones and by just having the damn thing for 4 days I can’t believe how I lived without it. I am now tweeting and following a bunch of people on Titter. I used to rip Twitter and now am a junkie. Speaking of which, make sure you follow RollinSD.com on Twitter HERE. Read more

I am not sure I would want to show anyone this video right before the MiraMar Airshow. This is the sickest video. The plane doesn’t look like it is going that fast and then holy shit! It’s right in front of you and 10 feet off the ground. It looks like something out of the movies or a ride at an amusement park. This is absolutely amazing and I wish I knew what the guy was saying. I am going to take a guess and translate what they are saying. “We carefully planned this approach and had it calculated to the exact foot of decent. Read more
Breast cancer is no laughing matter. According to the National Cancer Institute, in 2010 alone, the estimated number of deaths was almost 40,000 women (and roughly 400 men). Self-examinations and mammograms are important for early detection. That’s why these sensible young men in the video below have the right idea when it comes to helping the cause. Everybody knows that Boy Scouts are “trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent”, which is precisely why women should feel safe putting their mammary glands in the hands of a trained Scout.
