    Maher sets Cowboys record

    I have a "love/hate" with Maher and Gregory as a Cowboys fan. I spend one second questioning their spot on the team and before you know it, they redeem themselves with an outstanding play. Gregory especially...

    It’s cold outside

    If a radio station feels the need to stop playing it, they could take a lesson from this Atlanta radio programmer. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2018/12/05/baby-its-cold-outside-banned-more-radio-stations-causing-uproar/2213458002/ "We didn't turn it into public debate, or turn it into a ratings stunt," Tony Lorino wrote in a Facebook post. "We just knew it was the right thing to do for the audience we served and quietly removed the song from the playlist. (And, we never got complaints for *not* playing it, either; we had plenty of other great Christmas songs to play, after all.)"

    And some would say the same about the first. Oh well....

    This song wasn't "banned". A couple radio stations made a decision to not play it because they gave into customer complaints. If you like the song, play it on YouTube or something. It's the same thing as when people started freaking out about the Dukes of Hazzard getting pulled from whatever channel it was. The "freak out" over the "freak out" is just as annoying.

    B10: East vs West Disparity?

    100% nailed it! Ohio State and the B1G can blame the West Division for keeping OSU out of the playoff. Just not for the reasons they claim.

    Tetons and Yellowstone - mid Oct

    @BigRedBuster, I'm insanely jealous of your trip; that sounds amazing! I've always wanted to do something like that but feel very inexperienced when it comes to that type of hiking trip. Sounds like it might be possible after all. Unfortunately, my wife would never go for that. She is not an outdoorsy person at all. I'd have to set it up as a "guy trip" or something, and that might even be an uphill battle..lol
  7. I"m with @BigRedBuster. Stay clear of the interstate and go through the northern part of the state. But if you stay along I80, hit up Pioneer Village in Minden. I

    The Trump Economy

    Does BRB disagree with that? I don't see how anyone could.

    The Trump Economy

    Maybe I should rephrase: Who would be able to start businesses without the help of investors? Definitely not poor people with great ideas... And I do get the discussion you guys are having. GM's decision is driven by profits (good or bad), but so is the local bowling alley when they are given a loan to resurface the lanes.

    The Trump Economy

    @RedDenver Who would "invest" in businesses if there wasn't some kind of return? Should investors be put on payroll and become an expense to the company? I guess I don't see how the system would work if companies just broke even. If that were the case, I see only the super rich being able to start businesses because they are the only people that could round up the capital. How would banks work?
  11. Is the "Go (bump), Big (set), RED! (spike) chant new?   I'll admit I don't really watch Husker VB that much, but that distracted me as just a viewer.  I can't imagine how nuts that would drive me if I was playing.

      Funny story. Like 1990 or 1992, Penn State got sent to the Coliseum for a regional. They were 42-0, and had lost like four sets all season. We could only fit 4,000 in the Coliseum for a match, but we sounded like 10,000. 


      Maybe game two of the match, Penn State has four hits that were seen by everyone but the officials. Pettit was pissed, Noth was pissed, and the fans were livid. PSU got the point, there was an argument after the play, bedlam. But the call stood.


      So the fans started helping the officials out. Every time Penn State touched the ball, we counted. ONE. TWO. THREE. Next time, ONE, TWO, THREE. Louder and louder. It was the loudest sporting event I've ever been to. Dust was literally falling off the roof beams. 


      It rattled Penn State.  Bad. Steve, the PA announcer, had to tell the fans to stop. So we stopped. But every hit, every block, every dig, we erupted. Noise like a wall. 


      We beat Penn State 3-1 that night. I think my ears were ringing for two days afterward. 


      I know this isn't the same thing. I just think it's a cool story.

      That is a cool story. Nothing will piss off a crowd faster than the refs missing a fourth touch or a clearly blown in/out line call.

    Big announcement coming?

    That was a joke??? Sounds like a solid idea to me.... You could make one "end zone" the deep end with a diving board, and the other "end zone" a shallow zero entry. There could be a gradual depth change as you go from one end to the other. I think a rectangle shaped pool would work out well

    That might be a bit too corny, don't ya think? I'm so sorry about this....

    The Trump Economy

    Literally the very next paragraph: "In Louisiana, up to 15 percent of the oilseed crop is being plowed under or is too damaged to market, according to data analyzed by Louisiana State University staff. Crops are going to waste in parts of Mississippi and Arkansas. Grain piles, dusted by snow, sit on the ground in North and South Dakota. And in Illinois and Indiana, some farmers are struggling to protect silo bags stuffed with crops from animals." I think you might be sticking a little hard to this one issue. The issue of tilling under damaged crops, and farmers leaving in the field isn't a wide problem by itself. But it is a symptom of a larger crisis. That is that farmers produced way more grain than the market needs. Like BRB said, a lot of farmers had a great crop, just nowhere to go with it. As to the bolded: I would say the price of soybeans is a pretty big indication of a problem.
