  1. Yup, I was in the same boat. Growing up my parents had always yelled at the dogs for growling, especially if someone new came over the dogs didn't know, etc. And so I had just assumed that to be the case until recently with this particular trainer. Anyhow, found it interesting and figured I'd share.
  2. I'm only responding because I recently learned this from when I was taking my two dogs to training, and it was something I was pretty ignorant of, even having grown up with dogs my entire life, and am making no assumptions about your knowledge/ability of working with dogs. The trainer emphasized how it's important not to yell/scold the dog for growling, it's their way of communicating that they're unhappy/angry at the situation. By scolding a dog for growling, instead of treating the underlying issue, you repress the only warning that the dog may be giving that it's about to take matters into its own hands (mouth?), and is what actually leads to these reports that "the dog was so nice, it hasn't growled or barked at anyone before it attacked so and so".
  3. "Orange County baseball coach John Altobelli, his daughter Alyssa and wife Keri died in helicopter crash along with Kobe Bryant." Left behind a son and daughter, who just lost both their parents and a sister so terrible.
  4. Such an unreal season. So amazing. Was really hoping for a 9ers v Titans superbowl, as it might have been slightly easier to convince the wife to let me go. Anyone thinking of trying to get tickets? I know a few from here went to the Superbowl in New Orleans, what's the best place to look into getting tickets? Just the ticketmasters/stubhub etc? Wondering if they'll come down some once the seasonticket holder lottery is done and some more tickets hit the secondary market.
  5. It reminds me so much of those Vic Fangio defense's where it felt like we never blitzed, and still consistently got pressure on the QB. I'm not sure where to find the numbers, but from watching it sure doesn't seem like we send more than 4 very often and are still consistently generating pressure
  6. Hopefully the moonshine made it, too. Agree with what you said, it's definitely one of my favorite things about the board is the tshirt exchange, and glad we got to make it work! Dunkel is probably my favorite beer atm, and Prince's is amazing if you like Hot Chicken.
  7. So @Skinny and I both missed the cutoff, and following the sheer brilliance from @DA RAIDERS, decided to just pair up together. Well, then Skinny had to run to Asia for awhile so we each sat on our packages for a bit. Received mine earlier this week and can say it was definitely worth the wait, as Skinny hooked me up with a helluva package. 2 sweet shirts 6 beers (which may or may not already be gone, the Amber was absolutely amazing), 2 Mason Jars of some homemade liquor drink (the lemon flavored is absolutely amazing, tastes just like the lemonhead candy, and is pretty dangerous) and a Baseball Collector item. Amazing package Skinny, so glad it worked out, as I was pretty bummed when I thought I had missed the exchange this year!
  8. Damn, been caught up lately and havnt checked in the forums for a bit and missed my favorite fbg event. Need some kind of tracker for notifications on certain new topics. @badmojo1006 if you need me to set up the spreadsheet again let me know, I've done it the last few years and helps tracking who has or hasn't sent/received. And if you have any open spots left...
  9. So Brann knew all this was going to happen, right? He had that exact vision of Drogon flying over Kings Landing, so he knew she was going to burn the city down, and yet he didn't tell anyone. Wonder why?
  10. I have this exact same gambit every year. April bday, May mother's day, Anniversary the next month. I 100% feel your pain, and after it's gone, I feel relief for a few months, then March rolls around... My wife also doesn't have a hobby and is extremely cost conscience, making gift buying impossible...
  11. Was hoping we'd get some more backstory on the NK/three-eyed raven this episode, and exactly wtf Bran was doing. Was really hoping Bran would give some speech or explanation about how he's been setting it all up for this moment etc. For the last ~6 seasons, we've seen Bran claim to be training for his upcoming battle with the NK, and they've been hinting at something significant coming from that. And for what? So he could sit around and do... nothing? The way they handled the undead army was completely pointless. This whole series it's been about how them bickering over the throne, while ignoring the greater threat was going to be the end of them all, and now it's gone. I'm ok with Arya being the one to finish the NK. Her entire story was heavily linked to death and her becoming a super stealth assassin. But now that that's over, then this episode they immediately go back to where they were, fighting over the throne. So what was the point of the White Walkers then, if they just ended up being another stepping stone before they get to Cersei? It's just lazy that they built up this giant force, that used to represent what would happen if people didn't give up their greedy power struggles, only to have it disappear, and ultimately leads to nothing as we're now back to exactly where we were without them. "Ok, now that we've somehow manager to destroy this super powerful wizard-zombie and his horde of the undead, let's see if we can somehow manage to beat this old drunken lady and her stealth pirate" I know GRRM has said that the series will end similar to LOTR, with the hobbits having to retake the shire, and maybe that's what is going on here? But it just feels like a lot of time spent building up characters for moments was just thrown away.
  12. My 6 year old is a hockey fanatic and has an insane memory. To the point I've won quite a few beers at the Preds Arena by finding people wearing jerseys of opposing teams and challenging them that my 6 year old can beat them in a roster contest of their own team. (Say either a player or a number and the other person has to name the player/number). Well tonight we go to a restaurant and they have hockey on. "dad, this is my favorite playoff series" (of course, the preds have lost so now I'm confused) "um, why?" "it's the Sebastian Aho series!" (I can tell he's actually excited) "um, I know Aho plays for the hurricanes.." "yeah, and the Islanders have a Sebastian Aho too. Well, I guess he plays for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, but it's the Islanders organization, so it counts." "... ???.. you're insane, how could you possibly know that" "NHL 19 of course." I'm going to win so many more beers next season.
  13. Went to the NFL draft activities and Panini had a booth set up where your kids could get their picture taken and had mock football cards emailed to you. Looks like they had hired a few models to work the booth. While the wife and I were waiting in line with the kids to get their picture made, she nudged me and asked if one of them looked familiar. Then she recognized her, it was Ashley K from The Challenge, and she is absolutely smoking 😍. You should definitely check out her instagram. My wife asked Ashley if she was doing any more of the challenges and she just kinda laughed and sad probably not.
  14. I became pretty close friends with someone over the last 6 years, and you would swear he had a perfect life. Good high paying job, a picture perfect family, wife and 3 kids. Bought a nice house, always posting pictures from various vacations they were taking. Our families got together often throughout the years for various events. I was someone he would usually confide in when something was going on with his wife/family/job etc and his wife and my wife became pretty close, too. Last week he checked himself into rehab and apparently has been taking a staggering amount of pain pills over the last 3+ years. I had no clue. Never noticed a change in his demeanor, attitude. Caught my wife and me completely by surprise. You would have won quite a bit of money off me if you bet me he was dealing with an addiction to opioids.
  15. I traded Wes Welker, Jason Witten and about 35% of our leagues FAAB for Aaron Hernandez. Literally never got to use him. That stung for a while and definitely made me more hesitant to pull the trigger down the road.
