  1. The team really slumped not long ago but they're hot once more and within striking distance of the Rangers. If only the pitching would continue getting its act together this team could really go on a tear. And wish they could move past Sogard already. Nice guy and all but let's upgrade. No clue who that could be though. Maybe Grant will be ready this year.
  2. He should get together with the PT so he can work on getting in shape and boost his confidence levels.
  3. Incredible read. Thank you for sharing, NCC.
  4. I'm not sure that's a true statement. Teams will often run more when they're winning late (which doesn't mean running equals a win), but... The top 5 teams in rushing attempts were Seahawks, Redskins, Patriots, Texans, Chiefs. The top 5 teams in rushing yards were Redskins, Vikings, Seahawks, Niners, Chiefs.
  5. Yeah that was pretty awful. Between that and the FBI's inability to actually secure a perimeter, this show is starting to lose me.I hate bad writing but like Dexter this show entertains me, so Ill continue watchingI'm still on board, just worried they're going to continue taking lazy outs.

  7. Can't imagine Russell will open with the club even if he blows up this spring, but it may indicate they're willing to call him up this year. More competition for 2nd is good. Hope someone earns it and not by default. I worry about the defense though. Pennington couldn't hit but that glove really helped the pitchers.Choice is apparently going to play out his career in triple a.
  8. Thanks for the update. Had no idea.Something bothering you? I hope everything is ok.Everything's fine. I really appreciate the update, as I'm sure a lot of other folks like me had no idea about the instability of the ME and North Africa.Sorry to waste your time and force you to make not one, but two sarcastic comments. I meant to imply that it doesn't really matter if this one story is true or not. We know there are atrocities. What difference does it make if it is Christians in Nigeria or Muslims in Syria? Life in that area is screwed up and everyone knows it.You're not wasting my time, so don't apologize. What CE did here fits a pattern, a troubling impulse of his to make everything be about persecuted Christians. And, of course they are being persecuted in some areas, that is not an unknown. You don't have to advance fake stories to make folks aware of it and, in fact, it harms your advocacy when you do. But, CE and others harp on this to distinguish themselves as the chosen people, ignoring the persecution brought on by Christians throughout their short history. So, it's a grain of sand amidst a much larger issue and pattern(one can read the Persecution thread for an update on how this story is told). My bottom line is this is more about CE and his pattern of posting and philosophy behind the stories he wants to tell than it is anything else. No, I don't make everything about that, i post about a lot of things. But apparently that's all you want to see.ETA: Exhibit A Very true. A great number of things about that, yes. But not everything.Really? What % of my posts are about that topic? I just linked all of my content, so you should be able to take a stab at the number pretty quickly.Have you met fellow Christians who disagree on your take of this Christian persecution? Either in the ffa and/or real life? If so, how do you interpret that? Do you believe they're simply ignorant (not necessarily deliberately so)? Do you believe they're interpreting the 'facts' you present incorrectly?

  10. I went to Snopes and typed in Nigeria and didn't find anything. I guess I need to not rely solely on Snopes.The problem isn't so much falling for a bs story. It's how you bit. A story isn't being reported by the MSM and your first thought goes to conspiracy against Christians? You definitely come across as a guy with some smarts and a man who means well. But the way you phrased this headline - and others - clearly shows you have some kind of martyr complex. You can re-asses how you read these things without it interfering with your faith.
  11. Serious answer - there are loads of human rights violations taking place across the globe. Nonprofit organizations can't focus on every part of the globe. Here is a link mentioning some of the organizations working toward a better Nigeria. Here is a link briefly discussing some of the problems organizations face in Nigeria, along with some organizations working there. Here is a link by Amnesty International on Nigeria's human rights record. Not only that, but a quick google search shows that photo may be a fake. Hijack - at Nigeria's President being named Goodluck Johathan. There are a lot of smart, level headed, compassionate Christians not only in the world but on these forums. It's a shame CE works so hard to represent some of the crappy stereotypes.
  12. How about any of them?Or any of the major media outlets. I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, outside of the link I posted.It's part of the the liberal media's agenda in their continued war on religionChristians.Well...duh. I obviously didn't mean one of those yucky anti-American religions.

  14. Human rights organizations are not only okay with the slaughter of Christians, they actively encourage it.
  15. Huge fan of your mocks. Stars galore!
