I know i disappear for the most part during the season and VERY active during off-season. Sorry, it's my way of getting my Colts fix. If me posting news and opinion topics so much during this time is a problem, just let me know.
Not many things beat a 3 day weekend. Hope all of you are having a terrific holiday weekend!
Thanks RTB. Same to you. Remember to take a moment & pay respect to all veterans past & present who protect our liberties both stateside & abroad.
Especially the fallen ones who made the ultimate sacrifice as well as the soldiers, sailors, air men, coast guard, & marines doing tours in remote corners of the globe right now.
Thank you to all the spouses & children of military men & women serving as well.

Anyone have any advice on buying a hot water heater? Been searching it and all I find are complaints. Cannot seem to find any brand/model that is well thought of. Good reviews seem to be for heaters made before 2016. Any help would be appreciated

OK Hoosiers, it is getting quiet up in here. While I am not a Hoosier, I never met one that I didn't like. Let's rock...Hoosier style...
I've said this before. To me, Indiana is the Colts, the Pacers, David Letterman, & John Mellencamp.
I know. I gotta give Bobby Knight some love too.
I'm still stunned that Dave didn't have John on his final week on late night. Mellencamp is to Indiana what Springsteen & Bon Jovi are to New Jersey man--An icon to their birthplace.
RIP Greg Allman who died at 69 today!
What's everybody grilling this weekend?
Stay Safe Hoosiers

I made that comment quite a time ago. It was made Feb. 2016. It was not meant to be a shot at all. I ask the question out of curiosity and explained it as so.
The only reason it came to your attention now is because of King Colt and his attempt to harass me. I have put him on ignore as to curb anymore problems.
I did not appreciate his remark about sucking it up in regards to my grandson's life changing concussion issues.
He has since made two more disparaging remarks to me after I ask him not to bother himself with commenting to me.
Hopefully he will just leave me alone in his insulting attitude.
VERY excited about this offseason. I think we have a TON of good players that will eventually become solid players. I just hope 'eventually' means "sooner rather than later".
Congrats to Lebron James for passing Michael Jordan in playoff points!!!

Jo Van Fleet in East of Eden, wow! She stole this movie on her own. Definitely deserved her Oscar for this.
Grapes of Wrath may be the better film IMO. I agree with you, Steinbeck is great. I haven't read the novel of East of Eden but I might since I did enjoy the film.
East of Eden is a take on the old bible story Cain and Abel with a heavy focus on a father-son relationship. It's a decent film. I thought the emotional connections in the film really drove it since it focuses so heavily on the father and sons and their struggles with one another.
This old lady though, Jo Van Fleet definitely steals the show when she's on camera. I love it when she tells James Dean "it makes me mad thinking about a rrrrrranch." She was arguably even better in Cool Hand Luke.
RIP Nicky Hayden

"Luke, I'm your father."
Oh sure you are Vader, first you cut off my hand & then you drop this bombshell in my lap?
Dead beat dad is more like it. You missed quite a few child support payments & instead of a hug; you chop of my hand? What did mom see in you other then thin skin, a huge ego, & court sanctioned anger management classes the rest of your life? LOL!
The NBA playoffs this year have been absolutely terrible. Super teams are ruining a once very good sport. Too bad.
