  1. I'm not a car guy so I went for practical. I bought a 2007 Pontiac Vibe after much research looking for a dependable car that gets good MPG and is also good for hauling things. Being a hatchback I can haul long lumber, wheelbarrow, etc... This helped to free up my money to move to a home on a lake and travel numerous times a year, not interested in investing money on a vehicle since my only interest is getting from point A to B. I have only invested in wearable and preventative maintenance items and it now has over 140,000 miles on it, needless to say this car will not pick up chicks but has served it's purpose 10 fold. Maybe when I hit my midlife crisis I will buy a yellow sports car.
  2. Every year I follow the Memphis in May BBQ through Icon and this thread vowing next year is the year I'm going down there. This year I ended up using my spring travel time and funds by going to Colorado, next year I'm just going to plan ahead and make it happen. Until then I will continue to enjoy it vicariously through Icon and this thread, keep the photos and updates coming!

  5. I decided to start a serious weight loss plan after new years eve. I weighed in at 265lbs and decided to set a goal of losing 30lbs in 60 days. As of today I'm down to 242lbs. I'm going to try and bump my goal to 229lbs by Feb 28th. My plan was to take in approx. 1,200-1,500 calories a day, pretty drastic for a guy who is 6'5". I cut out all alcohol, I was basically drinking a case of beer each weekend so this alone was a good reason the weight came off early in the beginning. I know this is not a long term answer but my method works for a short term crash diet. Low Carb Diet- zero sugar, no simple high GI carbs, no processed food, and zero alcohol Breakfast- clean oats w/ a little skim milk and chocolate protein powder, every day but maybe 1 weekend morning Lunch- tuna pouch, pickle, apple, no carb yogurt or healthy leftovers to change things up a few days Dinner- fish and veggies or salad w/ lean protein or a healthy homemade soup Exercise: HIIT Cardio- 3 or 4 days per week I ride the stationary bike with a pattern of 10 seconds balls out then 20 seconds regular peddling. I start out for 5 minutes and keep increasing until I'm up to 15 minutes. I do this first thing in the morning on a empty stomach. I know many don't believe in this theory and say that you cannot spot reduce but I have found this is one way to somewhat attack belly fat vs conventional cardio. Weights- 3 evenings a week I do a full body workout with free weights. I start with fairly light weights while gradually increasing the weight and changing up the number of sets and reps to avoid a plateau. I agree with what a few have stated above, a serious diet & exercise program is easier to stick with if you have a goal driving you. Mine is a beach vacation in Punta Cana first week of March. Once I return I need to incorporate a more basic long term plan than the drastic calorie reduction I'm doing now. Any ideas?

  7. DK cash game flex spot need 1 G, Tate M. Bryant D. Robinson I see you like Diggs, do you still like him if the Vikings have the division wrapped up by game time?
  8. DK Cash Looking to go cheap at TE and trying to decide which guy for $3100 and under: Ebron V Davis Ertz Other?? West if Ware is out or D. Robinson?
  9. Great version of a classic song
  10. DK cash I'm looking to go cheap at TE and DST in order to fit guys I love throughout my lineup. ASJ- at $2700 is his floor high enough to pay off at this low salary DST- a bunch of crappers, who is the safest bet to not crap the bed at @ $2500 and below Jaguars Buccaneers Bears 49'ers
  11. DK cash game I'm liking Buck Allen over Rawls, is this crazy talk or a valid move? After reading your Tips and Picks for DraftKings and needing an extra $100 I changed to Rawls. In cash games I generally tend to fade QB, DST and sometimes TE to pay up for RB & WR with some decent success. What are your thoughts on this strategy?
  12. Keep throwing to Adams = definition of insanity!
  13. fitting way to end it
  14. They have no one else. He must play. But why the hell are they still throwing to him
  15. This, it is not like receivers have been wide open all day. Stafford is threading the needle and on fire, plus Calvin is impossible for anyone to cover.
