  1. Watched this on the plane last night. Good way to kill 2-hours.

    Because he's fallen?

    Let's brag about our kids thread

    The two older ones are whip smart in school and on the soccer field. They're not typical girly girls. They like science, and don't do the princess thing. The baby is full of piss and vinegar. Last night I told her she couldn't have dessert until she finished the food on her tray. So she looked straight at me, grabbed a handful of food from her tray and dropped it on the ground—never breaking eye contact.

    It would be like a soft, yellow light. Calming-low Watt desk lamp. Not a harsh bright, white light like from a deer-spotting light. Man, I had accidental Beige-a-thon last night. No Hibbert. turned on HBO and all of a sudden Michael Ealy is on screen. Then later in the night watching an episode of Atlanta and Drake is the focal point.

    He has. He doesn't want it. He makes a million bucks (maybe) at UMD. He's got a job for life—compare that with the pay and tenure of MLS or National team coaches. No contest. He's got a good program going, access to best recruits nationally, but also a very fertile recruiting base near his school. He's smart. I will say, he probably should consider something like Coach K did for Duke and the Olympic National Team.
  6. Isn't the salvation bar pretty low for evangelicals/protestants? All you have to do is believe that Jesus Christ is your savior and salvation is yours—you don't even necessarily have to live a good, moral life?

    Drank a bottle of wine at company Xmas party. Didn't even get remotely tipsy but the hangover the next day wrecked me. A shadow of my former self.

    Stand Up to Harvard

    Why do people join the Masons or rotary club or charities? It's not just about making friends and parties. If you didn't, good for you. The people in my fraternity were actually very well adjusted people that wouldn't have had trouble making friends then and now. Has nothing to do with inability to make friends.

    My father in law raises hogs, butchers them and makes sausage, chops, and bacon from them. Smokes the bacon locally. It's interesting, all bacon is good but different than store-bacon. I'm picturing a woman giving birth to a slab of bacon now. It's real.

    It's not a goal. Anything that comes on the field of play becomes part of the field of play. Dog, beach ball, flare, bag of peanuts, etc. Every referee exam I took (granted this was about 15 years ago now, maybe they changed the law) had a "dog question".
