  1. Nice. Safe and peaceful travels.
  2. oh no matter how it wa written up you'd bitch and say you knew better. its just you
  3. I told you so..true form
  4. Yeah in retrospect it really was but they had to sign him, It just didn't work out. With the teams reputation for being cheap (often undeserved IMO - NOT that I am saying it was a well run club) and with Davis's production and popularity they team would have been skewered if they let him walk. Of course the same people skewered the team for the signing when his production went away. He seemed like a good guy and was the main reason to watch the club for a few years. He averaged 37 home runs over a 6 year span, that's crazy. Being suspended for the playoffs the one season might have really hurt, but mostly he was fun for a while. I hope he has a good retirement and post baseball life.
  5. I like the offense they are building. I like the college pick first rounder. It might only take him a year or so. Leave Adley and all the pitchers down this year and next year might be fun. The following funner!
  6. That was a special game. Pretty solid step forward this month.
  7. So far June is good
  8. I'm just starting to see the exoskeletons here. Have only seen a few.
  9. It's comfier than it looks.

    I hope horse racing ends in our lifetime. Animal cruelty.
  11. My wife wants me to keep wearing the mask in public and around the house. She must really care about me.
  12. The police have to earn back the trust of the people. No more "catch and release", "pothole express", or "rough rides". Then witnesses will cooperate far more often and juries will convict far more often and crime will go down. Problem is it might take years to work so politicians don't go this route. Instead they do stopgap measures that hurt in the long run.
  13. That was a thing of beauty! I made it home in time to nail bite my way through three innings.
  14. On paper it at least looks like there is a good bit more talent. On paper it also looked like Hollywood would not be among the league leaders in drops and it looked like Boykin might be a real NFL player.
  15. I'm not sure how I feel about a team drafting a player with the last name of a division rival city. In the olde days this would have never have happened.
  16. The first pick sounds excellent, hopefully it works out. Oweh seems like a bit of a project. 31 seems early to take a project player. Though I guess if you don't draft for another 60 picks......
  17. If they don't the people should hold it against them, not against the democrats. I won't hold my breath though. If the democrats showed up for trump, who used national emergencies to talk about TV ratings, than the Republicans should show up for Biden. When this country ends, and why would anyone doubt that it will, Newt deserves a ton of blame. Completely partisan politics, embracing conspiracy theories he knew weren't true, name calling, governing by inaction......no Newt no Trump.
  18. The at bats with the bases loaded in the 6th were pretty awful.
  19. Newt and his cronies ended that.
  20. Good meme. Fear can be a big part of hate. And the link between the two can be exploited. Look at Republicans recently with immigration, "socialism", and gun control measures.
  21. Means was pretty great though! Bright side!
  22. We care more about out perceived rights, ignoring key words of course, than we do our citizens and children. That's obvious. Other countries have similar or worse movies and TV and do not have the gun violence we do here. Stricter gun laws and penalties are absolutely part of the solution. It's a largely competitive unhappy society often pitted against each other given the means to hurt many people quickly. I hope it gets better in my lifetime but I doubt it. We're not good enough or well informed enough (see known non factors like TV/ video games brought up instead of real contributors) to change things right now.
