  1. Hey everyone. My wife and I have had an eventful couple of years, so I haven't really cared much what my alma mater is doing with sports. Had the baby. Wife got breast cancer shortly thereafter. After months of chemo, surgery, and radiation, she had a pathologic complete response, which the surgeon called "the holy grail." We later went to Hawaii and then Italy and Greece. I've started a new law enforcement job with the federal government and my wife is teaching and practicing medicine. Here's a pic of our girl!
  2. The bridge is amazing. So heartfelt.
  3. I hate Alabama more than anything in the world.
  4. We didn't have a ton of snow on this most recent cold blast, but it's been unbelievably cold. 0 degrees when I got to work yesterday, -2 today. Wind chill approaching -20. Wild stuff.
  5. In this case, the HOA is being reasonable and the Marine is being unnecessarily difficult (and, it appears, lying about it to the media). He violated multiple state codes to erect large flagpoles and the HOA is trying to work with him so he can keep flying his flags within code. But he's acting like he's the victim. For those who don't know, I'm a USMC veteran myself. I've been thinking a lot lately about the entitlement mentality I see in a lot of veterans, so I think this just struck a nerve with me.
  6. This is so obviously designed to generate comments and outrage and clicks, but I gave into it. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/01/05/marine-veteran-fighting-to-fly-american-marine-corps-flags-outside-texas-home.html
  7. This is just me griping about semantics, but when all this was going down I read in multiple places that Aranda was supposedly being guaranteed full autonomy over the defense at aTm. That's such an obviously untrue statement. * Aggies give up 40 points per game * Jimbo: "Sorry, nothing I can do, we guaranteed Aranda full autonomy over the defense."
  8. Obviously prefer UGA, but I expect the evil empire to continue their reign. At which point I will congratulate them for being the co-national champions with UCF.
  9. I've had good Louisiana-type food once outside of Louisiana. It being so memorable should tell you how disappointing every other time has been. It was crawfish etouffee at a small brewpub in downtown Winston-Salem. Everywhere else across the country has ranged from mildly disappointing to shockingly bad. The tiny mountain town of Banner Elk, NC, has, interestingly, two Louisiana-themed restaurants. I haven't tried the fancier one, but the other one had more of a bar and grill atmosphere. The jambalaya came in some kind of disgusting tomato-based sauce and the "poboy" was just a collection of ingredients on bread with nothing to tie it all together.
  10. Still not sure what to make of this, and I don't know if local beat reporters are either. I could definitely see Orgeron being too involved in the offense for Canada's liking (and there's a story out now about that very thing from the Troy loss). But if you look at his coaching history he's never stayed too long in one place. In the past 10 years he's been the OC for 6 schools, surely soon to be 7. In other professions, someone changing jobs so frequently makes you think the employers might not be the problem.
  11. Had a great time! The weather was all over the place (70s one day, snowing the next), but fun nonetheless. Only place we ventured outside of Denver was Golden. A bit touristy, but very pretty. Golden was a taste of the landscape of the West which I really want to see more of. Pictures to come.
  12. Regarding the attitude of the Florida football team: Young men are very impressionable and generally willing to be led. You can usually tell when a good man is leading them because they emulate it (or at least are forced to conform while they're on the team). Likewise, if they're led by someone who is not a good person, you can usually tell pretty easily.
