  1. Today
  2. Nope. Fuck that noise. That could've gone south real fast.
  3. Rat

    2000 was sidelines. My weight has fluctuated a little. I never had to try to be heavy, the way some lineman do, to the tune that when they quit they drop 70-80 pounds and are almost unrecognizable except for their GIGANTIC heads. That never goes away. I got up to 350-360 from a playing weight of 330. I have pretty bad back issues that sideline me from time to time, meaning I can't even bend over to put on my socks. Other days I'm carrying roof tiles up a ladder no big deal. So currently I'm feeling pretty good with my back and down to 305. Sounds weird to say, but just recently I was celebrating being the not heaviest guy in the room but still got winded. I've been going on walks because it calms the baby, or at least more walking than I did before. There may be merit in lineman taking moderate jostles (think bang your head against the wall over and over) is 'worse' than the devastating hits that the rules officials are trying to eliminate (think getting run over by a car once). I don't know which is worse. Knowing what I know now about concussions, I would have sat out some practices and some games. But I didn't. All but one of the times I can remember were what everyone might consider "he got his bell rung". Well, these days, those are (should) be taken seriously. One time, I blacked out, but it was a freak incident in high school. A guy fell over the pile that I was on the bottom of and kneed me in the side of the head. Half a dozen times or so, my vision closed in for a series or two. Almost daily I'd see spots. I'm quite certain I have some degree of brain damage. I have some short term memory issues now. I've described it as, imagine having your memories in a file, orgainized so you can find them easy. Mine are all there, but someone dumped out the drawer and stuffed them all back in haphazardly, so finding and recalling the memories is spotty, at best.
  4. What a episode
  5. A lot of chatter that Tyler Huntley will be named starting QB for Utah over Troy Williams. They are supposed to announce tomorrow.
  6. Looks that way
  7. Does white walker dragon breathe fire?
  8. I was hoping when she was bragging about winning the battle of the bastards, Arya would have said "yeah, but I personally murdered every member of house Frey. What you think of that?"
  9. bran: i'm the 3-eyed raven. arya: i skin people's faces and then become them. sansa: oooo-kay we gotta have a family meeting you two are fucking weird now.
  10. Yeah, we have one too -- but our ST coach doesn't want him punting rugby style.
  11. Good point -- I'd insist on a fire-breathing dragon.
  12. I don't understand why they wouldn't ride horses to catch the white walker? Or maybe sled dogs, anything is better than walking around in snow and ice.
  13. UW got an Aussie punter this year so look out.
  14. Our punter is 1st team. Lol. I guess someone had to be the best punter. Our punters have won the last 3 Ray Guy awards. "Punter U"
  15. Yesterday
  16. My son was born in September, and he is usually the biggest and oldest kid in his classes and teams. Seems to be advantageous.
  17. I go have some threads I watch and miss stuff too, but I caught that one. Don't sweat it tho, Sam did too
  18. I've done that a couple of times and was always astounded at how much I missed.
  19. Bug must follow after-watch blogs and podcasts or something cause I missed it too.
  20. ...or Jon Snow.
  21. Ahh yes, like Jon Edwards or Strom Thurmond.
  22. ooooookay now I remember the flashback scene with the young Ned. I completely missed the dialogue between Sam & Gilly regarding bastards, targaryens and starks, oh my.
  23. I used it inappropriately. It's actually an illegitimate child. I thought it was a child late in life from a second marriage.
  24. It depends on the school district. I know of two families in the Bay Area that were told if they brought their 6yo sons in to enroll for kindergarten, they'd be put in first grade. Period. The districts use their own psychologists.
  25. Don't feel bad for blinking and missing it. it was the combo of two scenes: 1) when bran was time shifting (last season?) & watched Ned take a baby from his dying sister. That baby was Jon snow. 2 where Sam & Gilly were talking last week & she was reading what seemed like a inconsequential story & Sam interrupted and said, "screw it - we're out of here". well, that story was the clue of who the baby's father was -- daenerys targaryen's older brother. Which is why the dragon let John pet it: he's 1/2 targaryen and half stark, but not by Ned.
