*After coming off a BIG win last week, the Wildcats went head to head in a Pac-10 showdown last night against California. The Bears came in with a loss to Nevada the previous week, while Arizona undefeated from a win over the Hawkeyes.
Although Arizona showed an impressive performance the previous week, this time on the other hand, they displayed a sloppy performance. Both teams were scoreless until finally the Bears scored a 25 yard field goal in the second quarter putting Cal up 3-0. Arizona received the ball but were again forced to punt it away. California then proceeded to push the ball forward enough to score yet another field goal increasing the Bears to a 6-0 lead. With about 5 minutes left in the first half, the Cats did the best they could to put a score with the remaining time that they had. An impressive drive put Arizona again close to scoring, but then an intercepted pass by Cal prevent the Cats from scoring in the first half of the game.
During half time I was thinking about the games that I had watched earlier, one in paticular. The UCLA versus Texas in which the unranked California team defeated the Top-10 ranked Longhornes and hoped that this would not be the same case in this game.
Halftime ended and the second half was now ready to begin. The whole third quarter was nothing different than the previous half. Both teams going back and forth, but Arizona finally scoring a field goal to put up their first points of the game making the score now 6-3.
Fourth quarter began and Cal held on to the ball and moved forward to put yet another feild goal to increase to a 9-3 lead over the Cats. Arizona received the ball and put up again another decent drive and again were in deep Bear territory. And as if it could not get any worse for Arizona, the field goal that was attempted by the Cats had failed. The Bears received the ball yet again and drained most of the remaining time left. Cal then lined up for another field goal to seal the game but to Arizona's luck the attempt had failed.
With one last shot, Arizona received the ball with a little under 3 minutes left to play. Nick Foles then had continuous success with Juron Criner and once again reached deep Cal territory. With about one minute left to play Nick Foles again found Criner open and finally scored the first touchdown of the game and also giving the Cats' first lead of the night. Arizona ultimately won with the score 10-9, improving to their first 4-0 start since 1998.
The Cats definitely cannot expect to hold on to their winning streak playing like this. Hopefully the learn from this and go harder their next game against the Beavers.
*Despite the Cats win, ASU did not acheive the same success losing to the Ducks this week, making the Sun Devils 2-2 now.
*PROPS to Alabama for seizing to amaze me yet again in a big win (24-20) over the Razorbacks..
-The UCLA and Texas game was DOPE as fuck too..
*The next Arizona game is on October 9th, against Oregon State.
When I finally got to the Pizza, I met up with my friend Brandon and continued to have a good time when suddenly I realized that I did not have a ride home. I tried not to worry and figured that my cousin would show up and I will be able to hitch a ride back. Luckily for me I was right, and got back home earlier than I expected. My brother and I then decided to head straight to bed and talk about these events in the morning.
I wasn't bummed at the fact that we lost our homecoming game because we did play one hell of a game (especially my N***a TREJO #44) despite our loss. But I was glad that I got to catch with some old friends that I had not seen or heared from in a while, and got to enjoy some Pizza and shared laughs afterwards. Overall I'd say it was a pretty good night but it definitely could have been better.

I know I look really young lol.
This is my official 100th post since I first started my blog during the summer. And so I figured that on rare occasions like these I'd share some previous events/unfinished posts that where meant to be posted, but I never got around to actually doing it..Or I forgot haha.
One of the things that I'd never shared was a Family Reunion that I recently had gone to in August at Bisbee, Arizona which I must say was quite the trip.
On the way there, I got to view some of the country side, which was really something that I had missed seeing from my previous trips to Mexico, which by the way is the same route we use to get to Bisbee.
It brought back memories of a time that I used to feel never should have happened, but now I am thankful that it did, and hope to continue learning from it.
The reunion was held at a community center near a church, I can't remember the name but I remember it being kind of small. And despite the size of the location, it actually worked out for the best. Not as many people showed up that I thought would. But there was still a good amount of people.
The first thing we did when most of us were gathered was a group photo. Afterwards we proceeded to the festivites which literaly did not end to the next morning. The potluck which was contributed by everybody was INCREDIBLE, an endless amount of food ranging from Fried Chicken to Tacos and Salad.
Although I did not dance, or do karaoke, I still enjoyed myself. I had conversated with many people of family whom I have never met in my enitre life but yet they knew much about me. I felt guilty of not knowing more than half the people in the room.
Awkward enough, me and
the krew my cousins decided to take a stroll down Old Bisbee, we checked out some of the town, and got to observe some of the lifestyle that was around which was completely different from where I'm from. After awhile we got bored and headed back to the reuninon. Not much later my family had decided not to stay at a hotel and instead head back home.
The quiet road back home was good, it gave us the opportunity to take in everything we had just experienced. By the time we arrived at good old Too Strong, it was around 1:40 am and we were all eager to get home. We finally arrived, exausted, we all decided to go to bed almost immeditaly. I on the other hand stayed up a while longer to update my blog, I had started the post but just never got around to finishing it until now.
Overall, I had a great time and is definitely something that I will always remember, and I hope to attend more reunions, or host one of my own.

*Big showdown last night between the Big-10 and the Pac-10; Iowa going up against Arizona. Both teams were coming in undefeated. I did not go to the SOLD-OUT game myself, but I still cheered on the Wildcats from the comfort of my couch. The Cats off to a crazy start, scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter moving to a quick 14-0 lead.
In the second quarter, the Hawkeyes finally scored, but Arizona answered right back with a another touchdown off a Kickoff return, making the score now 21-7. I was pumped at this point. The first half ended with Zendejas making two field goals putting up the Cats to a 27-7 lead.
Knowing Iowa, I knew coming into the second half the game was going intensify, so I made a quick sandwich, grabbed a bag of Salsa Verde Doritos & a Brisk and was ready to continue watching.
The third quarter started off kind of slow with both times going back and forth but the Hawkeyes ultimately scoring, the score now 27-14.
Fourth quarter begins, I expected Arizona to hold off Iowa, allowing the clock to run out. But the Hawkeyes continued to push forward. And with continuous success with Iowa's Marvin McNutt, the Hawkeyes put yet another 7 points.
Score now 27-21. And just things looked like things could not get any worse, Iowa capitalized yet on another mistake by the Cats, intercepting a pass by Nick Foles and running it back for a 20 yard TD. Luckily the Hawkeyes missed the extra point field goal leaving the score now tied at 27-27.
Anythings goes at this point, wide awake now after I was beginning to grow weary of the game. I could only expect the worse, for this game reminded me of yet another Arizona game, not the Cats, but the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII, in similar colors, Arizona Red/White against the Steelers Black/Yellow.
But I was hoping that this game would have a better outcome. And sure enough, it did. The Cats finally cought a big break, scoring a big TD with passes to Bug Wright. And from this point on it continued to go Arizona's way, stopping Iowa in their tracks with 4 SACKS IN A ROW!!
Fist pumping until I tired, and updating my Facebook at the same time. I was only wating on the game to finish. The final score was 34-27 with ARIZONA For The Win! And bumping up Arizona 10 spots to No. 14 in The AP rankings and two slots to 16th in the USA Today coaches poll. Also, dropping Iowa No. 18 in both polls after being at No.9 in the AP ranks and No. 10 in the USA Today coaches poll last week.
This is Arizona’s highest rank since 1999, when the Wildcats entered the season ranked No. 4 in the nation.
*Too bad Arizona State did not have the same success, falling short 19-20 against the 11th ranked Wisconsin.
How about the Spartans with the SICKK! fake field goal TD. And Mark Ingram (Alabama), can you say BEAST.
*Next Arizona game is on Saturday against California.
Newest segment added to my blog in which I will include videos or audio of interviews, movie clips, stand up, of things that I find to be intriguing, or just plain hilarious.!
*DOPE video from the South Dakota natives,, made for the many people like myself who have trouble sleeping. Off their new album, The Heartland Panic, which is available now.

I'm going to have to find something else to watch until then..any suggestions.?

*NCAA Football started this week, and already some big season openers have gone down, including the impressive Arizona win over Toledo. Though it was clear who the obvious winner would be, the way Arizona played had many people stunned. Arizona has good offensive power, and are usually known for their great defense. But this years' defense on the other hand was thought of as the teams' weak-spot, having only 4 returning starters and 7 newcomers, which throughout the training camp was struggling during Offensive drills. But on Friday, this was not the case. The Wildcats' defense was a MAJOR deference, stopping nearly everything Toledo had to offer (Offensively). The game would've been a shutout, but U of A guard Conan Amituanai was called for holding in the end zone during the second quarter. Resulting in a safety, giving Toledo their only points in the game.
This is definitely was Arizona needed after their embarrasing 'shutout' loss to the Cornhuskers during last year's Holiday Bowl.
Next U of A Football game is at home Saturday, 9/11, against The Citadel of South Carolina.
*PROPS to Arizona State who also opened up a can of whoop-ass on Portland State, in a 54-9 WIN. And Northern Arizona on shutting out Western New Mexico 48-0.

-Yeezy has no doubt been dropping some incredible music lately, dropping DOPE tracks after track and this one is no different... Off his forthcoming Hip-Hop album (thank god), Dark Twisted Fantasy which is slated for a Novermber release.
I am a BIG fan of Kanye West's work, especially his first 3 albums, he is no doubt one of my favorite producer/MC's. And I hope that the rumors about his newest album are ture and lives up to the hype. But with songs like these, I think we have nothing to worry about. G.O.O.D. Music.
*Kanye West - Devil In a New Dress [Prod. Bink!]
*Kanye West - Monster (Feat. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Bon Iver)
Without a doubt I have to give it to Young Money's own Nicki Minaj who definitely held her own in this track. DOPE beat and verses from Yeezy & Jay-Z...& I definitely digg Nicki's Jamaican flow on this lol.
-It's Official, the follow up to Spitta's Super DOPE Pilot Talk is currently in the making and according to Curren$y himself, he plans to release it sometime this October.. WOW,, 2 albums in a year, haven't seen anything like that in a long while. But he is not the only rapper also considering to do the same.
*Curren$y - Audio Dope II [Prod. Ski Beatz]
Just in case if you missed out on the first Pilot Talk...DOPE.
This is seriously one of my favorite songs right now lol..
-DOPE New video from Mr. Cee-Lo Green, off his newest album The Lady Killer which is set to drop in December. Can't Wait...
*The surprising thing is that this is not the type of song that I would expect to be written by BRUNO MARS of all people,, awesome.!!
