I am a graphic designer living in Austin, Texas. I do fancy maps and kiosks and user interface design mostly, though I've done work in other design fields as well. You can check some my stuff out at www.tomasrdesign.com.

I am currently working full time, going to school part time in pursuit of a Master's Degree in Construction Engineering and Project Management, and raising (with my lovely and talented wife) a 3-year old son. I also help with my wife's startup business, kandle kidswear (www.kandlekidswear.com), that makes organic apparel for babies and toddlers (and sometimes big kids too).

I grew up in San Antonio before moving to Austin. I love my Spurs, and the puffy tacos at Las Palapas, but Austin is my home now. It would take dynamite to get me out of Austin.

Spurs admiration starts with Admiral: David Robinson's imprints can still be seen all over San Antonio's winning ways

Adande brings up an interesting point that I don't think Big Dave gets enough credit for. He started the whole selfless Spurs culture with his example of stepping aside gracefully for TD. Contrast that to how the Lakers blew themselves up with Shaq and Kobe handling themselves like such jackasses.

Groupon + Spurs = Engrish

10

Groupon has a deal for Spurs tickets today, but that's not why I'm posting it. The description that accompanies the deal is, well, bizarre. I'm quoting it below, but you can click the link if you don't believe me... ------ Humans have been putting spherical objects in hoops for centuries, but until the invention of the dunk, the fast break, and face dribbling, it wasn't an activity worth watching. See if basketball lives up to the hype with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 100-level seat to watch the Spurs play at the AT&T Center (up to a $125 value). Check out the 3D arena chart and choose one of the following games: Against Minnesota Timberwolves at 6 p.m. on Sunday, January 9 Against Denver Nuggets at 8 p.m. on Sunday, January 16 Against Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 19 Led by veterans Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili, San Antonio's pro basketballers reside in the elite of the Western Conference and will be sharpening their sporting spurs for upcoming games against board-warrior Kevin Love and the Timberwolves, perennial playoff players in the Nuggets, and Roman 7-footer Andrea Bargnani and the Raptors. With today's deal, you can catch the local, four-time NBA champs in action with fellow sports fanatics or your family and howl along with the Coyote as the Spurs dribble, dunk, alley-oop, coup-fourré, shimmy-shammy, and Irish chowder their way to victory. Seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis for seats valued up to $125 in sections 102–113 and 116–127. ------ Face dribbling? Irish chowder? Board warrior Kevin Love? Roman 7-footer Andrea Bargnani? Who writes this stuff? It's safe to say Stampler isn't moonlighting writing descriptions for Groupon.

No joke, no catch. I got two free tickets to Saturday night's game for buying a washing machine from Home Depot. I had been planning to go with my wife, but alas, she has come down with a fever...

NYT Article about Linas Kleiza's Parents

Interesting reading--Linas Kleiza's parents are both professional artists. Kleiza's a guy I would like to see on the Spurs, but would probably be too expensive.

One thing that is lost in the furor over the Barry/Fisher noncall is whether the Spurs made the right move by going for the stop. Statistically, I think they would have been better off trapping...
