Offensive lineman don't get the same kind of name recognition that QB's, RB's and WR's get. His name is John Urschel. All he's done so far is finish his Bachelor's degree in 3 years with a 4.0 GPA, majoring in Mathematics, his Master's in 1 year with a 4.0, and is now teaching part-time at Penn State while working on his PhD and completing his final year of football eligibility, after red-shirting his freshman year. And he's a really nice guy. Not your typical college jock, but even so, he still projects to be a high round NFL draft pick. Please consider voting for him, using the link in my signature, as fan voting is 1/3 of the decision.

Think we could find a local liquor store that would let us buy you a bottle of Sake only to be released to the man who has teenage son carol outside liquor store on an ocarina?

Just for that, I voted again for John!!! Who's currently at 29.1%, about 4% higher than AJ in 2nd.


And yes, it is a Monday. But then starting the Pub at 1:30 am PST means that just about everyone is asleep, East or West.

I'm completely terrified he thinks playing it will actually do whatever it does in the game. But yes, this is where he got the idea. 17 by the way. I'm gonna need an house with an apartment, pretty sure he's gonna fail to launch.

Jealous! I haven't had a game console since the PS2. I'm tempted to get one, but then I'd have to fight with my husband for the tv. That's the good thing about computer games, I can play while he changes the channel on the tv over and over again (this is his version of watching tv).

yes, but I seriously wonder if he differentiates between the two. We've had discussions about Star Wars games where I've come to the conclusion that he thinks a lot of that The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) can actually happen. Whatever.

1st Crapmas Brigadier of Carolling arrived Saturday, notified 5 minutes before they closed for the day.




Crapmas Brigadier of Carolling -- Denver Nuggets BB, Laptop Wall Charger, XXL Blue tee shirt, Kids size 10 tee shirt, Bath & Shower Fizzer, Glow stick, Orange Crow watch, 3 pair Girl Socks (size 6 - 7.5), and a Crab Bag. Who do I know have a little girl?


I'm tempted to give the red shirt to the Crapmaster Supreme, but I'm afraid Cortot would try it on first.

Yes, but there are some that more than make up for it!!!

Since Dewey doesn't love me and won't ship to my state, except they have in the past and I'm very sad. G is almost $50 a bottle here in the one store I know that has it. UGH!

I think I've gotten 3 now. Two of them were terrible, but the third (which I got last X-mas for being a super-poster) was pretty good. Had some nice toys to give my nephew and pretty sweet Kelty hiking backpack. As long as I put that backpack to use, or sell it, it will make up every Bag of Coal I ever buy.
