KGB Sky Show: Buyer Beware

The KGB Sky Show is a huge display of fireworks that’s been blowed up in San Diego since 1976. Classic rock radio station KGB describes it thus:

The Sky Show is a fireworks display, synchronized to a music soundtrack, broadcast on the radio. An artform invented by KGB and now practiced worldwide.

Game preview: Aztecs vs. New Hampshire

Wait, who are we playing?

The New Hampshire … uh … (toggles over to Google) … Wildcats. The University of New Hampshire Wildcats from the Colonial Athletic Association. This is the first game of the season for both teams. It’s also the KGB SkyShow, making this the last game of the season for about half the fans in attendance. Say, did you know that New Hampshire is where Massholes and Mainers go to buy fireworks legally? That’s an interesting coincidence, right? Fireworks are fun go boom!  Continue reading “Game preview: Aztecs vs. New Hampshire”

The staff predictions you never asked for and won’t remember by Saturday at 5:30

If you are excited for the SDSU football season, you’ve certainly scoured the prognostications of respected college football writers and important publications. But if you still find yourself wondering what four arguably qualified bloggers from the internet think will happen this year, well good madam or sir, you came to the right place.

The tireless, hardworking K30 staff submitted projections of the Aztecs’ final win-loss record, bowl result and our rationales for same. They are … surprising. GET FUCKIN LIT for Kabeer Thirty’s 2016 predictions:

Kindly eat shit, (Opponent)

Aztecs football season starts this week, and it’s time to start working ourselves up! It’s easier when you hate your opponent, right? We here at Kabeer Thirty love nothing more than to give a quick (figurative) kick to the junk followed by a tearful sprint in the opposite direction, but there’s a lot of hatred in this world. How about we try a different approach this season? Let’s systematically kill them with kindness!

A benevolent breakdown of SDSU’s 2016 foes:

How high? Defining success for the 2016 Aztecs

The first time SDSU made the Poinsettia Bowl, it played Navy. The Aztecs being in a bowl – any bowl – was such a novelty back in 2010 that nearly 50,000 people crammed into a stadium half-filled with San Diego River storm surge.

The shine of the lower-tier bowl game wore off fast. Aztecs fans were nearly outnumbered on their home turf by stone-sober BYU supporters in the 2012 Poinsettia. SDSU faithful who attended each of the Potato Bowl, Hawai’i Bowl and New Orleans Bowl appearances could fit into a Subaru Forester. Aztecs supporters aren’t satisfied with making just any bowl anymore.

Christian Chapman’s demo got rave reviews. Is he more than a one-hit wonder?

Before riding off into the sunset in a blaze of illegal stemming glory, former Aztecs quarterback Ryan Lindley started 49 games between 2008-11. It was a remarkable run of consistency that we didn’t fully appreciate at the time.

I think we do now.

How I learned to stop worrying and expect disaster: a love story

Most of us can quickly recall the first time we were killed by the Aztecs.

Not a literal past life memory of death dealt by sacrificial warriors of the pre-colonial Aztec Empire. I refer to spiritual death at the hands of old alma mater, the student-athlete Aztecs of San Diego State. The moment one of those teams cracked open your chest, extracted your heart and fed it to a stone idol. You remember.

Mine came on a November day in 1991.
