  1. Female co-worker suggested I try after our discussions of sore joints due to running. Went twice & did enjoy as I was looking for more core work vs typical gym/weights workout. Wife not comfortable with it, even though co-worker married, and that ended my experience. I would continue but its expensive compared to gym membership. (Co-worker eventually divorced so maybe wife had some kinda woman-sense).
  2. Timely to be thankful for positive news. Keep strong & prayers continue from here.
  3. Real gusty today. Buddies almost lost their EZ Up in parking lot. Problem is also that it swirls inside that stadium.
  4. Was in trial period of making my own salsa with wife as taste tester & we finally hit on cilantro as missing ingredient. Is now part of our herb garden with basil, parsley & mint. Not sure how olives got into thread but I would straight cilantro leaves over olives any day.
  5. 'Journalists' went on strike shortly before Jan 2009. Writers have taken over since....
  6. Right?! Still a good amount that should have been filtered out of here. Strong 1st 10 minutes tho.....
  7. Exactly, otherwise you start looking clueless like the NHL. As Micah Hyde said, there's no way anyone on Buffalo would still be in the game if same hit happened to Brady.
  8. Love this opening by Jake E Lee - Shot in the Dark
  9. Same age. We had it good - almost annual Championship games. One of my earliest memories was Sea of Hands game. I was Raider fan because Dad was. When it was ruled Clarence Davis caught ball I asked my Dad if I could go in hallway & spike my Nerf football, Spiked the hell outta that green Nerf, Those days are long gone, but I think that's why we pull so hard for Gruden - he has a true appreciation for Raider history.
  10. Wife & I did the combo last night after a very extended happy hr. I like the combo because it adds more to the meal, including celery, than just the pizza. Did combo regularly when younger - now very rare. Prefer my wing fix, by themselves, at local places known for being top notch. Years of combos has changed me tho - I almost always have a side of bleu cheese to dip my pizza.
  11. Agree with this. Aerosmith made their comeback during this time but not a hair band. Crue started out way-glam but they were more punk-based. Skid Row is tough because they have the pretty looking singer and couple hit ballads, but became progressively much heavier. Similarly, no one would call Pantera hair metal but 'hair' they were early on:
  12. Thanks! Been meaning to sign up but my natural procrastination caught up with me. I'm in now.
  13. No, Webster, NY, birthplace & home til ran away at 16. Funny, woulda thought Auriemma most searched in Storrs.
  14. Wendy O. Williams lead singer of punk band Plasmatics
  15. Most every Sat & Sun. I sleep 6-7 hrs weekday. Stay up later with couple drinks after wife goes to sleep on wknd. Still get up early on wknd to work out or do yard work. I like to catch a shower, have a sandwich then hit bed for some reading & then nap. About 45 min then I'm good to go for another 3-4 hrs yard work (in Western NY so gotta cram in spring/summer).
  16. Man loses 44 lbs only drinking beer for Lent This might make for an interesting follow up to Sober February - cleanse the liver, then go on a beer cleanse. Of course if you don't work at a brewery it might be a little harder to pull off.
  17. We've been to the area at least 1x per yr for the past 20 yrs. Used to be stunning at the beach - sad how seaweed continues to worsen. I have a pool at home so when I go away I hang at the ocean (wife likes pool). Last August was the worst - not 1 day of clear water. At Grand Palladium (bit north of Tulum) my son & I would snorkel right off beach. Couldn't in August & first time the seaweed impacted the trip. Poor workers do what they can but its a losing battle & it stinks like hell where they attempt to bury it.
  18. Gillette gonna put their shaver where their mouth is & pull sponsorship of Patriot's since Bob Kraft clearly not influenced by the message in their commercial?
  19. Family very happy with regular & sweet potato fries. Breaded shrimp. Have done Chick Fil A copy sandwiches that we love. Pickle juice soak is the key: Air Fry Chick Fil A
  20. I may be one of the very few with playoff hopes resting on Ben Watson (ugh)! Finished last but everyone makes playoffs. Only championship finalists paid (the pot is more weighted toward weekly & end of season pts). Toward end of season decided I wasn't wasting anymore waiver $ on this team. Then won 2 in row to face #1 team. Now need 8 out of Watson to advance. If Lamar Miller hadn't gone out early I'd have already banked the upset. 😡
