      Irsay haven't tweeted anything since yesterday... He must be working hard on Manning's contract.

      SW...my left thigh still remembers that long needle...has not been the same since.

      The sting of that long needle never really goes away unfortunately does it? It still hurts like h*** even years after the fact. Just like #18's departure, it is gonna kill me man because we all know what's comin'up next & we are just waiting for the other shoe to drop with an enormous t-h-u-d...This won't feel good at all. Don't we at least get a sucker for our pain? More like a stiff drink.

  2. I lived in the Dallas area for 13 years, family and friends came out from tornadoes ok thank goodness.

      LOL, Texans are proud of their heritage and it would be more like: "Just sent another yankee home air mail!"

      :) I'ts a whole different world I guess.

      When I hear my brother - who spent the first 40 years of his life living in NJ, then Philly, then Long Island - talking with a southern drawl, my mouth just hangs open in astonishment with probably spit pooling up on my shirt. Not saying it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I just can't wrap my head around it. At LEAST he isn't a Cowboys fan. That would be just too much.

    4. subvet

      That is a problem because the accent is real easy to pick up, the odd thing is when I visit with friends or family from there, which happens often, the drawl creeps back into my speech and it stays for days after getting home again.

  3. Someone just said I look like Jeff Bridges, I don't think so but I have been called "dude" many times.....

      I don't think I saw that one, subvet. Perhaps I should check it out.

      I haven't seen "Starman" either. From what I remember, Gene Siskel & Rodger Ebert gave this film an enthusiastic "Thumbs Up" review when it was initially released. Just like Gramz, I will have to borrow it from my local library too I guess. Thanks for the recommendation subvet.

      SW1, be prepared to "get something in your eye" at the end. I still heartily recommend it.

  4. Daughter got engaged 2 weeks ago and today I read an article that the "average" wedding costs almost $27,000!!! Anybody know a millionaire looking to give money away??

      I am with you shecolt. We cannot just give an open check....or we will drain our savings. I have known people who have spent 100K on a wedding....craziness in it's utmost form.

    3. subvet

      subvet

      Yeah but you should have seen the glares I got from my wife AND daughter when I (jokingly) suggested to have it in a country church we all know and have a pot luck in the basement.....

      I could feel the stares even though I wasn't looking their way. Evidently wedding days are nothing to joke about.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yup, for the bride to be it is their opportunity to play the role of princess. Everything is for her: the cake, the gown, the photographer, the presents, & the shiny diamond ring...Meanwhile, no one came to see rental tuxedo boy & all he gets is a thin silver band on his finger that looks like a washer that fell off a major appliance. Wedding are no laughing matter from the female perspective...EVER!!!

      Ditto here in Wisconsin too Gramz. High winds & just a few flakes. No real accumulation yet. I never understand why people spend good money to go downhill skiing when I do that everytime it snows on my metallic forearm crutches. Not fun at all in my humble opinion.

      AZ with WR Larry Fitzgerald & Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt would be very appealing pieces to Manning no question. Seattle with RB Marshawn Lynch is a great piece too.

      " Everybody wants Peyton except the Colts." Excellent point subvet. Why is that anyway? I know the Irsay answer: "We are in full re-building mode starting now." Never underestimate Yoda AKA Peyton Manning...He will make you pay heavily every single solitary time.

      70 pounds really? If my memory is correct, don't you work in a bakery with hot ovens? That explains you extensive weight loss subvet. Stay hydrated & cool my friend. I don't want you passing out from exhaustion okay. :)

    4. subvet

      subvet

      It's all good, the heat at work helped me lose the weight so I will look my best on 14Sept when I walk my daughter down the aisle and give her away to my new son in law. And there is a bonus to her happiness--he has field level end zone season tickets, don't get me wrong, he will be a wonderful husband as well!

      I had never been a baseball watcher, but in the recent years it has been growing on me.. the nuiances of the pitch, the head games with the skippers, and I really like baseball pants.

      "I really like baseball pants. " Wearing them or watching other athletes moving around in them? Just Kidding MCF! I couldn't resist asking you that. Inquiring minds want to know...HA! HA! Only Teasing! :)

      I get that, not a big fan of the heat. My office is air conditioned, but I frequently have to go out on the shop floor and we have ovens, it can get upwards of 120*F.. going to be a long summer, if 80*F days are starting already. The fog here was fanstastic this morning though 0.3m visibility, was really cool rolling off the lake

      Why is it necessary to completely destroy a team? Other NFL teams fonts seem to go that route when trying to improve or even rebuild.

      While some people may question the quality & validity of the Duke QB throwing video, it does look like Peyton's throwing motion in my opinion. The fact the new CBA prohibits & prevents videotaping workouts makes me wonder who the person who filmed this video really is...Has anyone contacted Tom Condon, Peyton's agent, about this? What better way to jack up your free agency market price & bidding war...

    3. subvet

      subvet

      With all the interest already shown, I don't think he needs to leak a throwing video. He'll show them up close and personal.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      I am not implying, inferring, or implicating Tom Condon released this tape in any way, shape, or form...But, I will say that for NFL franchise GM's around the league Peyton's overall arm strength is a legitimate concern yet...This tape goes a long way toward alleviating those unfounded concerns & GM reservations in my opinion.

      Methinks that Nike might have a vested interest. :)

      My understanding is that thirst is an accurate reflection of need, but that doesn't change the fact that 6 pounds in 8 hours is unhealthy - unless perhaps you are an elephant following a Richard Simmons video.

      It wasn't that hot (93 indoors, 102 near the ovens)but it was humid and we were short handed so there wasn't much down time. I always take 4 or 5 liter size bottles of sparkling water to work with me and drink them all but rarely need to "pause for the cause."

      Nope, I'll never get sunstroke, my water processing equipment works overtime.....but thank you for the good advise!

      Subvet, you literally make bread & earn bread at the same time. Not every occupation can make that claim with a straight face. And just like the yeast in your bread, I'm sure that you "rise" to the occasion every time when called upon to too. Well done subvet.

      Like that old song verse "reuniting & it feels so good." Tom Moore & Manning together again perhaps in NY? An offensive genius [Yoda/Peyton Manning] linked with a defensive genius [Rex Ryan]...Gotta admit this marriage of masterminds really intrigues me.
