I was leaning that way for sure. Seems that polystyrene foam board is the unanimous decision, if not spray foam. Then do horizontal furring strips, and then vertical on top of that. I'm in the late stages of finishing my basement. I started by painting Drylok on the blocks. Then foam board insulati...

2018 Steelers Offseason Thread

Bell’s agent was on Brady Quinn’s Sirius radio show and he intimated that Bell won’t be around for some of the regular season.
The biggest surprise to me here is that Brady Quinn has a radio show.

We decided to rip up carpeting, ceramic tile, and linoleum in our living room, kitchen, and dining room and put down vinyl planks the whole way through. I severely underestimated what a dodint it is to tear up ceramic tile.

I actually agree with the cursive part even though I don't think it needs to be state mandated. I've seen our district not teach it and there's a whole group of kids that can't sign their own name.

What a dumb idea. If this is a hill they're willing to die on, then they should just require players to be there and standing. If they don't, then they can't play (suspended for that game). I would imagine not too many players would exercise that option.

We also found out when they popped out. I enjoyed how it pissed people off almost as much as finding out at the birth.

My grocery store options are the worst. Walmart, Save-A-Lot, and a local discount store. Walmart wins by default. Martins is 30 mins away. Wegmans is 1 hour the other way.

My experience is that any store that has "Save" in it's name is not worth your time.

It annoys me that Mears yells "Robbed!" several times a game when a goalie makes a (sometimes relatively routine) save.

I would've thrown the ball on 2nd down. The clock stops either way with the 2 minute warning. Go for the first down and game over.

Your organized sports as a kid?

Soccer - grades 2-6
Baseball - grades 3-4
Basketball - grades 4-9
Football - grades 7-12
Track - grades 7-12

I quit basketball after my freshman year then grew about a foot that off-season. Probably not the best choice in retrospect.

Why do they have to kick the PAT? The offense should be allowed to defer if it's a walk-off score.

And Diggs really needs to start acting like he's freakin' done this before.
Has anyone been there before?
