Randomness Dos

I’ve eaten bear. I did not enjoy it but it wasn’t the worst thing that I’ve eaten. I have also never killed a bear and have no desire to.

Randomness Dos

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.

What is the best sporting event you have been to?

This one probably tops my list. Second game of Lemieux's comeback.

Mike Lange plans to call significantly fewer away games

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

Superb Owl LII -- Eagles v. Patriots

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.

Gustavsson Is really really good Really good. Fast forward 4 years. Who is in net? Who SHOULD be in net? Who is the backup? Tough call. I’d like to think Murray and Jarry are still here and a lethal 1a/1b combo and Gustavsson is dominating whatever league he is in. Neither Murray or Jarry would be ...

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.

Twice a day during the week (in the morning and after I workout in the evening). Once a day on the weekends. There's no way I could go a day without showering.

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?

Watching the Wings feed tonite and I'm imagining this is what it would sound like if Statler and Waldorf called hockey games.
Statler: This Pens team isn't half bad.
Waldorf: Nope, they're all bad.
Both: Ohhhhhhh

Christie cut 100% of state funding for my school district right after he was elected. the community acted like grown ups and accepted that to maintain the level of education they were used to, they needed to vote yes on a tax hike to make up for the budget cut (well done Christie - ha!). it seemed ...

Gung Ho is great. Classic Keaton.

From this list, Cocktail is the obvious winner. Footloose seems too big for the list. I'd sub it out for White Water Summer to fill the Kevin Bacon quota.
