I would say our wrong turn came well before Albuquerque.

Tiger's pulling away. To paraphrase Neil Armstrong, it's not a major but it would be pretty major.

Saints eating up big yardage on their first drive. Falcons are already really depleted by injuries.

Wait, it's just an email? Who would pay $500 for that??

Betting on a Hopson-coached team is playing with fire.

Man, I don’t know.....we just went 90 yards in like 2 minutes. Defense only giving up two scores with 11 minutes to go. I would take this every single weekend.

It's hard to argue with the scoreboard, but I do get a distinct "preseason football" vibe from both teams this week.

It's more of an issue for Rice, since they're losing by 25 points. I don't blame the USM players for stepping out of bounds after a long catch at this point. Keeping the ammo dry for future games makes sense. Why risk injury when you're walking all over the other team?

On the other side of the ball, though, I see a team that really ought to be trying harder.

Shitty crowd. WTF are people in Hattiesburg doing instead?

Was trying to upload something very similar but my phone isn't cooperating. Thought I was going to get to see a no-hitter for a while there.

Dude in the top photo kind of looks like Putin.

That’s awesome. Heck of a 7th by the Braves. Nationals lost again so put your foot on their throat and close out this game......

Looks like Folty's pitching tomorrow, too. It could definitely happen.

It's 6-4 Braves in the bottom of the 7th. A win tonight sets up a chance to clinch the NL East tomorrow... and I think I'm going to the game! (I was promised a "surprise" and I don't think it's another positive pregnancy test...)

I made the investment a year ago with AW3 Nike +. I am probably in around $500 to date between the watch, additional watch band, cover screen protector, etc.....

Its been a great investment on two points for me....I do 3.5 miles a day and it is far better managing my workout compared to my fitbit. It provides more relevant information in my exercise dashboard as well. I'm also able to control music now during my run without fiddling with my phone. I didn't spend the additional cash on the LTE version because using it kills your battery at an alarming rate and I don't want to spend another $15 per month with my cell carrier for a feature I will rarely use.

The other benefit involves Siri and my car. I am able to use Siri to voice control my cars stereo easier with having her on my wrist vs trying to yell at her on my phone that is sitting in a cup holder when fighting outside noise driving with the top down.

The new Apple Watch 4 is really health are the new features.......

electro-cardiogram feature (ECG)
fall detection - It will call an emergency contact if you do not confirm you are ok within 1 minute after a fall is detected
There's also a set of heart rate notifications, including one that's looking out of atrial fibrillation (AF)
Walkie-Talkie mode - Cool if you have a network of friends using Apple Watch
Larger capacity for more music
Podcasts now supported
larger screen by using more of the actual screen area compared to previous models

I can see the Apple Watch evolving into a true health monitor over the next 5 years which is great. Probably will also turn into a parenting monitor for us adults that have senior parents out of sight. The larger screen and safety focus makes it appealing for those that want to be more in touch with elderly parents that might need help.


Left side display is very nice.

Well that got out of hand quickly. Stepped away for maybe 10 minutes and it's 8-3 Braves.

#17 Re: MLB » Braves v Phillies » 2018-09-20 19:07:52

The fact that Gausman is pitching is pretty reassuring. Just threw two strikeouts in a row. Hope he goes deep into the game and the bullpen gets to rest.

Read something in National Review today that mentioned a school where 2/3 of the girls identify as transgender. … orthodoxy/

We as a society have made some very unfortunate decisions about what we portray as "cool." Sadly, that's all a lot of adolescents have to go by now.
