    How much interest do you have for Braves/Asstros ??

    I have been to a couple Astros games, but still not that interested. I will only watch a game 7 if it makes it that far.

    Duluth Trading

    Just checked out the website, seems kind of pricey for outdoor clothes. They do have some good marketing though. 32 degrees from costco makes a comfortable, long lasting, cheap shirt. This time of year you can only find long sleaves, but in the spring short sleeves. That is my go to shirt for outdoors.
  4. I liked the daily show when John Stewart was on it, however I never liked the Colbert report.

    I Have Out-kicked My Coverage

    Women like guys that are funny and spontaneous, I suggest dressing like a clown and going over and tap on her window late at night.

    Hellman’s VS Dukes

    To me the brand does not matter too much, the key is to only put a very small amount of mayo. According to America's test kitchen Blue Plate is the best followed by Hellman's. Duke's was fifth in their blind taste test rankings. The way I make sandwiches the Mustard is the important condiment usually. I also occasionally make sandwiches European style, where you use butter instead of mayo. I am not a big fan of mayo for whatever reason.
  7. We are going to the train in Palestine and need a resort to stay at. Ideally something like a great wolf lodge, or similar. If there is not that, then are there any casinos up there that have a baby sitting service? Ideally it will be with 75 miles of Palestine, which Tyler is.

    Sorry :-(

    I did not realize that there was a london game this week. I normally set my final lineups on Sunday morning. It screwed me in a few leagues. If it was a normal game on Sunday i still would have had time to bench ridley.

    Rusty - question about tyler area

    Thanks, I booked a couple nights at that hotel, it was reasonably priced for a 2 bedroom hotel. You can tell it is offseason pricing. That is exactly what i was looking for. We won't be going to the zoo, we have a membership at the houston zoo and that is always a backup option when we can't think of anything to do on the weekends. The kids like hiking/state parks if there are any good ones around the area?

    Skibum - Axe Elf bet

    50 dollars PPR scoring I have Antonio Brown, he has Robby Anderson. Whoever scores more fantasy points wins. No clauses for injury or suspension. For ease of finding this thread: ABCD1234

    Skibum - Axe Elf bet

    Robby Anderson will be man to man against the worst corner in the NFL this week. It he doesn't do anything this week I will have this wrapped up.

    John Gruden-next to get canceled

    I was stating why punishment was different, not that I agree with it. Anything caught on video or in writing is going to be punished more harshly. That is a sad fact of life.

    John Gruden-next to get canceled

    I think that both should be punished and them both forgiven and allowed back after a certain period of time. In this case Antonio brown has been suspended, although I do not remember for what. Suspend gruden and then allow him back. I am big on forgiveness. Outside of murder and serial rapists I think most people should be given second and in some cases 3rd or 4th chances.

    Not on video.

    John Gruden-next to get canceled

    The double standard is that it is in writing. Look at Ray rice, there was a video so he was screwed. Either way, screw gruden, he is obviously an as$hole and we need less of them in management.

    Our Houston brothers…

    The one near our place used to be great. This was before we had kids so we ate out very frequently compared to now, but we probably ate there every other week for a couple years. Then there must have been change in management or something, because the food quality went downhill. The menu is great when prepared correctly.

    Superman is now gay

    They do everything to every comic book character. Period. Hard stop. Plus we are not the target audience anyways, I loved comics but even I quit reading at 30 years old. They are writing comics for a different group of people.

    Our Houston brothers…

    At one point it was one of my wife and I's favorite restaurants. However it went to crap around 4-5 years ago. Pork that is too dry was the main complaint, however there were many more. Everyone else must have thought similarly, because the one near my house closed before the pandemic even hit. Edit, I see they are down to a single location again. Maybe that is good for them, they are probably good cooks, but awful managers.

    So. Who's gettin the flu shot?

    I will get a flu shot, however flu season in Houston is normally January-May. Since flu vaccines decrease at a rate of 10% efficiency per month it makes more sense for me to get a shot in late December than now. Edit to include source. Overall, the study demonstrated that influenza vaccine effectiveness peaks shortly after vaccination and then declines at a rate of 8% per 30 days against influenza A (H3N2), 9% per 30 days against influenza A (H1N1), and 8% per 30 days against influenza B viruses among all adults 18 years or older. Ferdinands noted that, among adults 65 years and older, the declines are even greater, with effectiveness declining at a rate of 11% per 30 days against influenza A (H3N2), 10% per 30 days against influenza A (H1N1), and 11% against influenza B viruses. https://www.healio.com/news/infectious-disease/20210209/flu-vaccine-effectiveness-declines-around-10-per-month-following-shot

    Wtf is Detroit pizza?

    I have never heard of Jets, the closest one is about a 30 minute drive. Are they worth that?

    Question for 10/8/21

    I have a 4 and 6 year old. They can destroy the house within hours of me cleaning it up.
