  1. Sig! Iggles fan here that can’t make a decision regarding his disappointing team. At QB should i roll with wentz or cousins? (6 pts for passing TDs) Which defense Philly or Green Bay? (2 pts for turnovers and sacks) And lastly, pick two from Tate, Sutton, woods (ppr)
  2. I grew up not far from the king of Prussia mall. There was a guy we called mall boy that was always there. Long curly hair, misfits or slayer t-shirt, wallet chain, doc martens, etc. Every time my mom would drag me to the mall, he’d be there.
  3. Tell him you are thinking about sticking it out another year and see what he says.
  4. I'm ecstatic...have Engram, Njoku, Olsen and a league that doesn't allow waivers during the playoffs...
  5. Tried this joke on her this AM, she didn’t laugh. Will try it once more just in case.
  6. Love the new Sturgill album. If you haven't already, watch Sound & Fury on Netflix. Sturgill is IMO the most unique artist that country music has ever seen. eta: dammit i need to keep up with this thread
  7. I don’t think the calibration (from bike to bike or even between updates) is super consistent.
  8. My wife’s close friend scheduled their daughter’s baptism for Father’s Day. Trying to figure out the ideal way to show my displeasure.
  9. Those articles would be more useful if you had all the staffers revisit their rankings. I'd pay to see some measurement of how individual staffers did at each position with some commentary mixed in.
  10. Thanks! I think relying on arms is my biggest problem at the moment. There was one problem that I tried repeatedly for a week straight and couldn't figure out what to do. It wasn't supposed to be hard. Then some little kid comes along and throws their heel up and pulls themselves up with their heel. I had no idea that was even a thing. The forearm pain is real. Not sure when it is supposed to stop.
  11. Anyone? I was hoping for some advice on improving, but also how to avoid all the blisters and hand injuries that are holding me back from climbing more than 2 or 3 a week.
  12. I absolutely hate to exercise. While I've always loved playing sports, I'm just not very athletic. Staying in shape with pick up basketball and that sort of thing has never really worked for me. So, I joined a rock gym and I'm trying to learn to climb in an effort to get in better shape. I've been sticking bouldering mostly since I go alone and I don't quite trust the auto-belay just yet. Does anyone else do this? Any tips?
  13. If I were you, I'd stay away from the Peloton. All the instructors wear yoga pants, and we know how you feel about them.
  14. The classes are included in the monthly membership, which runs around $40 a month. I was able to prepay a few years in advance and get that cost down. They have live classes with a variety of instructors, on-demand classes, and they also have the rides that simulate biking outdoors. I thought I’d like the latter but it was lame. I mostly do on demand and my wife prefers live because she rides with a group of her friends. as far as accessories go, we got a mat and shoes through Peloton. Skipped the heart rate monitor. Bought a nice pair of wireless headphones and a large fan. Both are key.
  15. As overpriced and hoity-toity as these things are, I can't complain at all about the purchase. The wife uses it every day, sometimes twice. We've had it for a year and a half and she's coming up on her 500th ride. Recently they added yoga class and she's into that, too. I've done a few rides and have to admit that it is a good workout and fairly addictive.
  16. War on drugs tonight at the Tower. Never seen them live before - will it be worth the $50 ticket?
  17. I saw his son, Justin Townes, a few weeks back and he was fantastic. I've seen him a few times over the past few years and he gets better each time.
  18. My Dearest Siggy, Cook, Cooper, Cooks, Drake, and Gronk Pick 2, ppr Quarterback question; If Hilton can't play should I... Start Luck or Carson? (respond in haiku if you wish)
  19. I'd lean toward keeping all three RBs if for some reason my personal rankings couldn't sort it out. Keeper leagues are generally about creating stacked starting lineups. Very few teams are able to achieve this at the RB position because of scarcity and injuries. Sure, you'll have to go WR heavy at the draft but you will also be able to use early picks on TE and QB if you desire (or even more RBs...trades happen). However, if your keepers are locking so far before draft I would be wary of keeping certain RBs due to changing landscape and injuries. Stud WR are safer in that regard. For example, I wouldn't keep Conner if I had to decide now. Seems like a stud, draft and FA might change that. Meanwhile, Chubb seems like a safe bet but all you need is a training camp injury to tank his keeper value. It isn't like dynasty where the arrow continues to point up through general situation and injury uncertainty. In my league I've tended to take a different route, out of necessity. I haven't had too many stud RBs so I've kept studs at other position and went RB heavy in the draft (picking a RB in the first 5-6 rounds hoping to hit on 3).
  20. Sigmund! Playoff time and it’s nice having a second opinion so I don’t go insane. gronk or Ebron in a ppr? Or play them both and sit cooks or cook?
  21. To be clear, my previous posts were not defending violence against women. They weren’t defending hunt at all. What he did was wrong. But this wasn’t violence against women and it is dangerous to classify it as such, in my opinion.
  22. I realize that. Though, I wouldn't be so quick to jump to the conclusion that he would have injured her if the guys weren't there to hold him back. I didn't see anything in the video that suggested he wanted to cause her serious physical harm.
