  1. I went back to look how Ryan did with Julio last year. Julio missed part of week 5, all of week 6, 7, 11. Meanwhile, Ryan sat out the second half of week 17. In the 11 games last season where Julio and Ryan both played a full slate, Matt Ryan's numbers project to 33 TDs 12 INTs and 4650 yards. While these numbers would have put him ahead of Romo and Manning last year (would move him from QB8 to QB6), they are pretty much in line with what a lot of people are projecting for Ryan this year. Then I realized that the 5 games that were removed were: GB (32), Carolina (24), @Detroit (22), Tenn (14), TB (21). Every single one of these games was a mediocre to downright bad pass defense each allowing over 225 ypg AND every single one of these games was played in a dome. I would have expected Ryan to perform well even without his stud WR. Ryan's numbers against these teams project to 26 TDs 16 INTs 3500 Yards. I counted week 17 as half a game here. I think this speaks volumes about how good Julio Jones is, and how much Matt Ryan's success this year is tied to him. So, to answer the question - I'm sold on Matt Ryan just as long as Julio Jones is his WR. I think he warrants a draft pick in round 5, and presents value in 6 or 7. However, draft a solid back up, because if Jones gets injured Ryan becomes a mediocre fantasy QB, even against a subpar defense.
  2. New Todd Snider album is good. More of the same rambling, witty lyrics and catchy melodies.
  3. Great. Mother####ing. Posting.Bonus: Season 2 streams free on pbs.org. Thanks for this tip. My wife and I enjoyed season 1 - is season 2 just as good?
  4. Is it really Jay Farrar's album? Pretty sure its a collaboration of the 3 you mentioned and Will Johnson. Farrar's name is listed first due to alphabetical order.Listened to clips of all the songs and am intrigued. $3.99 mp3 folder download on Amazon so I plan on listening tomorrow.The song I heard was Jay singing, without a doubt. And I know that he has been working on this project for awhile now, on and off. You may be right that the other three are collaborating throughout and not just on a few tracks.That project has been pitched as all four working on the entire thing since it was first reported.I didn't know that. Then again, I didn't even know who some of those guys were back when the Mermaid Avenues came out. I'm listening to it now on Spotify, and Yames is singing on quite a few.

  6. I posted this in the 2012 album thread, but it might be a better fit here: Jay Farrar from Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt has finally finished the Woody Guthrie tribute album. If you are a fan of Guthrie or enjoyed any of Wilco/Braggs tribute albums its worth a listen. Some of Farrar's other projects are pretty good too if you can find them. Also, I've recently been listening to a lot of Two Gallants, Hoots & Hellmouth, and the Tallest Man on Earth. Good stuff.
  7. Heard a song from Jay Farrar's Tribute to Guthrie album on sirius tonight. I haven't listened to Son Volt in years and it was very refreshing. Jim James and Anders Parker are involved somehow too.
  8. Interested.I thought you might be. is damn good.Been listening to Say Us all weekend. Very catchy.
  9. We left him in that makeshift hospital tent in Mexico after he got shot.He is one of the best characters on the show, and I hope we haven't seen the last of him. Really thought he'd be heavily involved in the last episode.
  10. Just finished season 4. First two seasons were entertaining but nothing special. But after the last three episodes of season 4, I can't remember being more impressed with the writing on a TV show. Question - what ever happened to Mike?
  11. Trader Joe's sells freshly ground coffee 13 oz for $5. I'm a bit of a snob, used to only buy from a coffee specialty shop, but I have to admit this stuff is pretty good.
  12. I wonder how much it will hurt their admissions in general.
  13. No and no.Can you think of another example of a situation where our society rejected such an apology?Can you think of another example of such an apology? One that came 48 hours after denying any knowledge or favoritism?There have been so many public apologies that have come after out and out denials (I did not have sexual relations with that woman!) The reason I asked was because our society seems so quick to forgive and forget.Cheating on your wife and allowing children to get molested are very different things.What about killing dogs? Beating your wife? How do those compare?

  16. If JoePa comes out tomorrow and gives a heartfelt apology - says something like "I completely screwed up. He was my friend and I didn't want to believe it was true so I tried to block it out. I was in denial and my actions have had serious consequences and for that I'm truly sorry"....would people accept that? Would they believe it?
  17. Tried to watch Netflix through my Wii. I ordered the disk awhile back but never set it up. Spent 15 minutes getting it all set up and they tell me I have to get it from the Wii shop. I go to the Wii shop and apparently it costs $20.00. Is this for real? ETA: Nevermind, I'm a dummy. Nothing makes me feel older than trying to navigate the damn wii remote.
  18. I certainly miss Harry the K, but for me, the broadcasts were never the same after Whitey passed.The Wheels/T-Mac combo is like salt in the wound. The Wheeler/McCarthy/Sarge trio is like digging and twisting the knife into the salt. McCarthy giggles at everything, Sarge is captain obvious and can't speak properly, and Wheeler is a pompous know-it-all jackass. Can't stand any of them. T-Macs giggling makes me mental. I actually find Sarge unintentionally amusing. I want to rip the rug right off of Wheels' head and slap him across the face with it for disrespecting Harry and Whitey back in the day. Man, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I thought I was obsessing over it, it DRIVES ME INSANE. And Wheeler isn't a little bit funny. Sarge has his moments, but like hte giggles, screaming every 6th word gets annoying. He always... OVER EMPHASIZES... one part of each sentence. I love doing Sarge impersonations during the games. cracks me up
  19. holy ####. I always wondered if she was related to the peanusss woman who is pretty nutty in her own right.
  20. This is what I expected too, but instead found it pretty relaxing. We alternated days at the park with days laying around by the pool.
  21. We were down there around the same time. Lots more rain than I expected, but I think it was better than sweating the whole time. We may have missed out on some fun at the Hotel, but I have to say that renting a house seems like the way to go. Dirt cheap ($1000 for a 5BR), private pool and hot tub, and some respite from all the craziness at the parks.
  22. Haven't turned on the TV in weeks... First watched every episode in the first two seasons of Brotherhood, then watched Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the sequels, then caught Zach G's standup, and now starting up Sons of Anarchy. Why am I paying for cable?
