  1. I think he's at least as good as his father was at his peak.
  2. I think it was you that said a week or two ago that JMU's coach is gonna be gone soon. Good for him, but I'll be sorry to see him leave. I live about a half hour from Harrisonburg and the Dukes have actually generated some buzz in the Valley, which is filled with VT & WVU fans.
  3. He also had way more skill than many of the idiots who came before him and many of his idiotic contemporaries. You're talking about arguably the most-skilled NBA player ever.
  4. FINALLY finished The Southern Reach books by Jeff Vandemeer. I think he's a great writer from a nuts-and-bolts standpoint and he knows how to write evocative passages. The fact that he doesn't have an explanatory info-dump to tie everything up didn't bother me. However, this story was too sterile for my taste. Kubrick would surely have adapted this. I only cared for maybe one character. My mind doesn't do "abstract" well, so it all left me kind of cold. I can see why others love this, but I didn't. I'm off to Mexico in the morning and have some pulpier stuff loaded on my Kindle - Stephen/Owen King, new Grisham, and Joe Hill's latest.
  5. I'm packing to arrive in Mexico tomorrow. I might grow old and die THERE. Hoping the Wall goes up with me on that side.
  6. Yeah, I may have been a little optimistic in my outlook. I thought they'd gel quicker than they have due to the upper classmen and the 3 returning sophs, but they've just been a damned mess.
  7. Rivers.....Rivers.....hmmm.... Oh! You mean the guy who never beat Maryland?
  8. He's really good and I'm like you - someone's gonna snatch him up soon. It's fun being here now, though. JMU's a big school (20k-some undergrads, I think, which is way more than some "majors" have). But, if you can take some Tidewater, Richmond, and Valley guys that slip through the cracks (VaTech is by far their biggest obstacle) you can build a mini-dynasty like Houston has done
  9. Maybe, but I don't care. This is a fun game to watch. UCF/USF last week was the most entertaining game I've seen all year.
  10. It's been a while since I've frequented the Kent Narrows eateries, but all were fine. The Narrows was a little more upscale than the others back in the day, but I don't know if they are "better" if you just want to throw down on some good MD chow. Fisherman's has been there since Hector was a pup and has, as far as I can recall, has always been fantastic. A fairly distant cousin of mine - blood-wise, though the families were closer than the tree if that makes any sense - opened and owns the Narrows.
  11. I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering where you'd got yourself off to. I think @roadkill1292 is mostly posting in the political forum nowadays, though I rarely wander over there. @James Daulton posts in just about every thread here and, from my brief scanning, is having affairs with at least two other FBGs. I was in South County for Thanksgiving. Didn't get to Galesville, but ran the Bristol/Deale/Lothian/Harwood Gambit in record time.
