  1. Fast pass is a must buy at universal. If u don't, most rides have a "single rider" line that speeds up the process. My wife and I did that and were able to ride the Harry Potter rides 5 or 6 times when they had 90 minute waits
  2. Haha not craps. Blackjack
  3. Yall shoulda seen the cosmo limits this past weekend. $100 and $200 min for table games Friday night and Saturday night. And it was packed
  4. on a happy note, I cashed my first poker tournament at the Wynn, which was pretty awesome. I finished 10th out of about 160 for a $600 score. The $1k payouts were 3 or 4 ahead of me...ah....
  5. Did my first March madness trip this past weekend. Not a fan. Wayyyyy too many people. Couldn't get on a table, and moderate places like Paris and PH were spreading mostly $50 min games... Hell even the Fremont craps tables were $15. Getting anywhere was a huge hassle with the masses everywhere. Probably not doing that again
  6. I don't think you can judge a vacation cost as a whole as overly expensive. The flight costs what it costs. I live in a major hub on the east coast, and getting to Europe costs $1,000. Anything less than that is gravy. To me, overly expensive comes into play with the lodging. $200 per night seems to be the sweet spot for a nice 4 star hotel in Europe. Just booked one in Amsterdam and Berlin; both beautiful hotels right in the middle of where you want to be for $200/night. Anything beyond that, imo, is overly expensive. We booked on in Florence a few years ago for $400/night and while it was lovely and my wife's favorite hotel ever, it was a little much.
  7. You guys have to listen to the most recent pod with Gladwell. He has the most ludicrous take about Nigeria having the best basketball talent, and it goes from there. Truly indescribable
  8. I really like the short, stupid sketches like "Dave's outside the women's bathroom"
  9. Is now too late to look for rooms during first weekend of March madness?
  10. Still in. Averaging 192 per week. Big bye week with a lot of falcons on my roster. Not too worried about QB with maholmes and Goff but def worried about WR.
  11. So this was the last amount of thought I've ever put into an entry form, and I (**knocks on wood**) may actually have a shot at a deep run this year. QB - Ryan/Goff/Mahomes/Darnold-- went with three mid-priced options and threw Darnold in for $3 b/c he had the starting job and figured it was a good risk in a bestball format RB - Barkley/Coleman/Cohen/Hyde/Carson-- I have James Conner everywhere in fantasy but I'm an idiot and didn't put him on my squad here. WR - Hogan/Cobb/Fuller/Stills/Ridley/Richardson -- No huge names but pretty deep group here. TE - Brate/Cook/Hooper -- meh K - Gould/Butker/Lambo DEF - Pats/Chiefs/Falcons-- lol bad, though my logic was Chiefs have playmakers that can score TDs and Pats played in a #### division, and I figured Atlanta wouldn't immediately lose several guys to season ending injuries, but yeah this doesn't look too good Entry 112219 201.9 197.8 212.8 with Brate still to go tonight (#82 overall) Watch as I get knocked out next week
  12. This place has more ***OFFICIAL*** threads than any forum I've ever visited. It makes navigating the forum kinda painful. I made a similar topic about this a few months ago, and everyone jumped down my throat. I guess they're cool with people like me not visiting the site anymore.
  13. Look around man. Plenty of stories about how terrible she was to Tony. Doesn't make her responsible but it does make her an #####.
  14. Just on the first page we have "community threads" consisting a bunch of guys talking about one single thing. It's not fun to visit here any more. Do with this what you will Joe. 115 pages 704 pages 25 pages 142 pages 896 pages 25 41 24 26 792 54 15 32 320 20 207 803
  15. Vacations, getaways, cookouts, movies, whatever. When In season, sports for the kids. Kids don't need to play travel ball to learn leadership and other life skills
  16. Cool. I value my weekends and summers so mine won't play travel
  17. You have to be honest with yourself though. Are the thousands of dollars combined with no summers or weekends off as a family worth it if the kid is only out there because he likes the game? The answer is different for each family, but mine is a resounding no.
  18. Travel ball is pointless until the kid hits puberty and you have an idea if he's going to have the physical make up to play big time college ball. Playing travel ball in hopes to get a partial ship to a D3 school or juco seems like a joke to me
  19. People tend to put too much lime juice and too many tomatoes in their guac. Makes it too runny. When I make a big batch of guac with 5 or 6 avocados, I'll typically use at most one lime. Maybe half. About a half cup of onion and tomatoes. Bunch of cilantro, bunch of salt, and a couple diced jalapeƱos.
