  1. This is funny in a way. I had been a fairly frequent poster here in the FFA. Sort of moved along and on with life and things. All of a sudden my oldest is a Junior in HS and looking at colleges and this thread was the first thing that came to mind. It is such a wealth of knowledge and advice as well as a lot of just general cheering on of everyone else's kids. Great stuff. Edit to Add - I remember when you started this and shared about your daughters struggles. Huge congratulations to her for getting to where she is and achieving so much.
  2. What tools are folks using to search for scholarships. I've seen / read about search engines for scholarships? Any thoughts to share there. Have a high school junior gong into his senior year. All he wants to do is look at out of state schools.
  3. I am forever going to wonder now what happened to the characters. The episode was supremely done. I just don't feel any closure with it but then I guess that is how is supposed to be. I want to know if Oleg ever gets to see his family again. What happens to Phillip and Elizabeth - do they stay together and really what does Paige do.
  4. Dang - That garage scene with Stan, Phillip, Elizabeth and Paige was intense.
  5. Oh yeah Uruk - i was thinking the same thing. When the wig came off i should nor have been surprised at who it was but i kind of was.
  6. Don't want to spoil it for anyone but look more closely at the screen when she is laying on the steps and you will recognize who it was if you already did not.
  7. Ohhhh snap - the blond assassin. Just catching up on the episode now.
  8. I hear ya Jayrod. I have been the 4th official for a number of games as well - this is the guy who stands on the sideline and manages the technical areas as well as takes all the ribbing from the coaches - blah blah blah. I have heard some entertaining things but the standard response is the guy in the middle saw it differently. I will talk to him/her at halftime and raise your concerns. You really have to learn to manage all the people and personalities on the field. Depending on what level the fans can be right on top of the assistant referees etc.
  9. I refereed soccer all the way from the u littles when i started out to some of the highest levels here in the US. Plenty of stories to share but I would say that after my first year or so I could not even hear the noise form the sidelines anymore. I was focused on managing the 22 players in front of me on the field.
  10. I binged the first 5 seasons and am watching season 6 at the normal pace. I don't regret it. So my answer is yes.
  11. This story about Pimlico resonated with me. Went there once with some friends of mine who were going with friends of theirs. We rented a school bus to take us to the track. Purchased a 50 gallon roller trash can to pack with beer and ice. Drank copiously and ended up passing out sometime during the day using the tarp we had laid on the ground as a blanket. The stories from the Preakness man. That was a great day. Not nearly as off the hook as yours but the infield is nuts. Fabulous story.
  12. Just watched the latest episode. Seemed kind of slow for a show that is wrapping up in like 2 episodes. I really don't know how they are going to wrap this all up. Elizabeth seems to be coming to Phillips side now sort of.
  13. Really interested to see how they are going to end this show. I can see Elizabeth taking the pill somehow. I just don't see a road to a happy ending for Phillip. What happens to the kids. 3 episodes to go right? Seems like a lit to wrap up in 3 hours of the show.
  14. Finally finished the first 5 seasons of this show. Officially behind on season 6 now but am looking at catching up on it. Sux that Amazon Prime charges for this season but it is what it is.
  15. 3 episodes in big guy. Better catch up.
  16. If Jozy is still the "best" striker option we have going into the next cycle it is a very sad state of affairs. I had been a Jozy fan when he first started with the National Team. I think over time though he has gotten more and more lazy. Physically he has bulked up way too much. His body frame has stolen some of the quickness he used to have which gave him a better first step than what he seems to have today. He has gotten slow and his work rate at least from an appearance standpoint sucks.There were times in qualifiers where he seemed to get lost in the game. Maybe he wasn't getting the ball etc but its because he doesn't work to get it(at least in my opinion he doesn't). I don't think he fits in with the way CP plays - and the team it would seem is going to be fairly well centered on CP. I think his first touch has suffered tremendously over the past 3 years. Again, i think it goes to the way his body has physically changed in mass and muscle structure. He makes bad rash reactionary decisions to retaliate at the wrong times in big moments. This garbage that surfaced against the Red Bulls with Sacha and in the tunnel and on the field and then his tweeting about it and deleting the tweet is just further example.
  17. I will just say that Jozy Altidore is more and more of a clown every game he plays. See Toronto FC v. Red Bulls tunnel fight. Also the ridiculousness that transpired on the field with him and Sacha Kljestan.
  18. My brother in law knows the president of an Ivory school. My BIL got his Masters and Doctorate from that school and the now president was his faculty adviser on his PHD dissertation. He maintained a good relationship with his person and years back he took his daughter out there to meet with him and do a tour etc. This way it was known that his daughter was interested in attending school there. There was never a discussion on can you help. She applied and got in - one of the most competitive schools to get into. Not sure there was any help given and a little different than your situation. There was a letter sent to the institution that basically told my BIL that the school knows you are an alum but that grants the applicant no additional benefits. They won't get auto rejected basically. Good luck. My BIL got his undergrad from Duke and i grew up in Durham. Love the campus and the city for the most part.
  19. Subscribe to this. I have seen teen safe as well. There are a number of other ones out there. Most interested in being able to monitor my son's DM's in Instagram. He does not have Snapchat or the Facebooks.
  20. Oh snap - that sucks. I went to bed at halftime.
  21. Confirmed that you can view this game on the go90 app if you have a mobile device. No cost.
  22. I "think" that if you download the go90 app on your IPAD you can stream it there in English. Yeah i know it is on your IPAD and all but better than watching it on TV in Spanish. The game is listed on the go90 app. So i am pretty sure you can watch it live.
  23. Surprised there has not been some talk of the season finale on here. I have not followed the folk lore of vikings but the ending of this season surprised me a little.
  24. I thought this was the only thread i could come in today to avoid the depressing political speak. I guess not
