  1. I'm in. Thanks for setting this up.
  2. I took my boys (9 and 12) to the 7 O'clock show last night. It was a surprise for them (both Star Wars nuts). I enjoyed every minute of it and only had minor complaints (and by minor, it was more like Vaders voice not sounding right). The boys loved it, but left with mixed reviews. My 12 year old told me that it was his favorite Star Wars movie because of the battle scenes towards the end (Vader!). My 9 year old loved the movie, but left telling me that he now HATED Vader because of how evil he and the Empire were (that put a smile on my face, because to me, that was the best part!). Personally, I cant wait to watch this again and then go home and watch A New Hope. Although the ending felt rushed, I feel that Rogue One filled the gap perfectly and couldn't have transitioned better into EP4.
  3. Apparently in Southern Maryland (Calvert, St Marys and Charles) a group of kids think that its funny to make threats to schools and walk around the area wearing scary clown masks. So much so that Calvert County Public Schools sent out a message (and followed up with a phone call) letting the parents know that there is no known credible threat. I have kids in 3 different schools in Southern Calvert County and all 3 of them were talking last night about what they had heard at school. If nothing else, this group of copy cats is causing fear in some areas. Side note, all of the seniors from my daughters XC team went to Chick-Fil-A after their meet last night and some idiot was walking around outside of the Chick-Fil-A wearing the mask. Apparently he was just walking circles around the building and looking in the windows.
  4. Went to both. Enjoyed both even though we lost. The Steeler fan turnout was large (and loud), but not nearly as large as the last time that they were here. Id estimate that about 25 - 30% were Steelers fans. The Cowboys game actually surprised me. There were nowhere near as many Cowboys fans as there have been in the past. There were still a ton, but Id estimate that about 25% (1 out of 4) were Cowboys fans. That's still entirely too damn many! I'm sure that it looked like way more on TV, but in the parking lots as well as in the stands, I didn't see nearly as many opposing fans as usual. I've been going to games for 24 years and unfortunately due to the amount of tickets that Ticket brokers get a hold of, It will always be a large turnout for the opposing teams at Fed Ex.
  5. I can tell you that this is inaccurate. Cruz supporters were given access to the floor this evening (as long as they were delegates). There may have been some that were trying to get floor access that were denied, but unless they were delegates, they are not getting on the floor.
  6. So I am in Cleveland this week assisting with security for the convention. I went to breakfast this morning at my hotel (about 25 miles outside of town) and there was this guy sitting there in his Black Panther beret. I tried to strike up a normal conversation with him just to talk and he pretty much told me to get the **** out of his face, he doesn't have time to talk to a white man. All I said was "Good morning and asked him how it was going". I have no clue if he was here to protest, or if he is just passing through, but I can tell you that he was not here to have a good time. Hopefully it will be a peaceful week, but I can tell you that they are preparing for the worse here in Cleveland.
  7. It just seems like they are walking a dangerous line. Its one thing when you are talking about doing this for colleges / universities etc.. but this is with kids (some of them young). To me that sounds like it is inviting trouble. I mean when you are 5-6 yrs old, you hardly even know what your own penis is.. let alone why sally doesn't have one. In middle school, you have a bunch of horny adolescent kids that are just learning about sex, and now you want them to be able to go into the other gender's bathroom / locker room because they "identify" with them? Again, it sounds like it is just asking for trouble. I don't care one way or the other... when they are adults.. What I do care about is now you are potentially putting our children into situations that could go very wrong.. All at the direction of the federal gov't. So what would happen when (hypothetically) kid A (14 y/o Male that identifies with the female gender) walks into a female locker room to change / shower and kid B (14 y/o female) is also in there changing / showering. If Kid B then presses charges against kid A who took his pants off exposing his (male) genitals? Will Kid A now have to be a registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life? There are just too many bad things that could come out of this. I'm just curious, does anyone know what the population of Transgender Americans is? Are we talking 1%? 3%? 5%?
  8. So what is the point of POTUS sending out the letters to the public schools? Can he really tell the schools systems that they will face losing their federal funding if they don't comply? Something just doesn't sound right.
  9. Not really for this thread, but just for your knowledge we had teams on the ground within 2 weeks (some reports being sooner) of 9/11. They called in the NG, those are the same people that have regular day to day jobs that you and I have. They cant just show up within an hour to take care of business. If there was any inkling that this was going to occur (and it seems that there was), the mayor should have requested a state of Emergency be issued over the weekend. Perhaps then, the NG would have been available last night to assist.
  10. HAHA. I sit in row 8 seat 1, My brother and his best friend sit in row 7 seats 1 and 2. We also have family that sit in row 9 but on the other end of the section ( I don't remember the seat numbers). And of course we have met friends that live very close to us that sit in row 4. That to me is the hard part of deciding whether or not to give up my seat. I really enjoy the game day because it is a chance for me to see family and friends and party with a bunch of people. We all tailgate together and then go into the stadium.
  11. This is my dilemma. I sit in 142 row 8 and they are absolutely in one of the best places to sit. I renew only because I know that If I don't, I will never get seats that great again (that are mine).
  12. Cant wait to see this board tomorrow when the Nats win tonight and the Skins beat the Seahawks.
  13. Yes, I think that it is rude. Especially when you can see that the person behind you is tall. No, I do not recline my seat (unless I am in business and there is plenty of room).
  14. Boehner has announced his support for strikes. I am not against sending a message, but how can we afford to do this when the gov't is still under sequestration? I also cant help but feel that we are being suckered into something.
  15. I hope you are right. Boxing needs a lift. This fight would provide that lift. I still have my doubts though. I will believe it when they hold the presser.
