  1. True story... Last week, we had some unusual weather in my town. Warm January day and a cold front moved in. It generated a tornado about a mile from my house. Some of my fellow townspeople recorded it:
  2. Trying to win the award for the biggest word used on this site?
  3. My Brownies got a new veteran QB, thank you Buffalo and Las. I think having a QB that doesn't turn the ball over will make this team massively better. Got a WR (Landry) that can catch the ball ... imagine that. Thank you Miami Added talent and experience in the O Line and the secondary without overspending. Can potentially draft Darnold (or some other QB) AND Barkley. AND we still have 3 second round picks. QBs are probably going 1-3. Making 4 very interesting. I could see a draft day swap with Denver at 5 to get another pick from them because they may want a QB too. Still blows my mind they kept Hue. Not sure why you want him mentoring your #1 pick ... but whatever. We might win a game this year.
  4. I've already seen the entire series. Just watching it again. Still enjoying it and I'm amazed how much more I pick out having saw it already.
  5. I saw everyone was thinking April. I just got through season 1. There's about 70 episodes left, so that puts me at about 1+ per day to finish. I should be able to manage that.
  6. Why on earth didn't the bears lay down for Minnesota? 12-4 and home playoff games don't come around very often and you need to take advantage when they do. @Jag you have to be sick. Why did they get rid of Gould? Baltimore, Seattle and Chicago were eliminated ... makes me really think that having a good D in today's NFL isn't really necessary. Mahomes, Luck, Watson, Goff, Trubisky, Prescott all made the playoffs. Plus guys like Mayfield and Allen... lots of young guns at QB should make for an interesting NFL going forward. All of our teams among those of us with rooting interests have a young gun. I feel like the Browns finally have a franchise QB and will be in a very strong position going forward with potentially a top 10, top 5 kind of guy. How do you feel about yours?
  7. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 ... 4/10 I have seen every one in the series. The first movie was excellent. Catching Fire was decent. Then the series took a left turn for the worse with Mockingjay. Mockingjay part 2 continues that left turn. Never mind that I didn't like the story. I just didn't care for the flow of the movie or anything. I could see some things coming. It was one of those movies that try to jam to much in from a book and ends up doing a poor job. Movies are usually about character development and this one does a poor job of it. Even my son was like meh. Is it just me, or is Jennifer Lawrence just meh too?
  8. Rewatching GoT in advance of the new season.
  9. Outstanding, keep it up.
  10. Thanks for the kind words everyone. @Elovia And I will look you up in the after life. Who knows, if I go first, maybe I can haunt you in this one.
  11. I am trying to make a long story short ... Its my dad's side of the family. I haven't spoken to my biological father since 97. My wife and children have never met him. I didn't talk to his side of the family for about a 10 year period. I reconnected with them about 8 years ago ... shortly after they quit speaking to my dad. So if you are scoring at home, nobody talks to my dad. There's lots of stories around that. I still have a lot of unanswered questions myself. I have chosen to make them a part of my life, but honestly, I give minimal effort. Some of them lead ... interesting ... lives. Not that there is anything wrong with any of that, nor does it make me better or anything like that ... its just very different. I am trying to delicately word this. For instance ... my cousin's house is probably one of the dirtiest places I have ever set foot in. My wife won't go anymore. And she doesn't really work. Regardless of what she thinks, trying to sell tupperware to friends/relatives is not work. I will not eat anything made in her kitchen. One of my other cousins is a senior in high school. She has changed her name to Evan and now its back to Ashley. She has several tattoos, tried to play football and brought her girlfriend to our Christmas gathering. Again, to each his/her own, but ... Her mom is in her early 50's and has moved from place to place to place to place. None of the places were the Taj Mahal. None of them were cleaned while she lived there and some were the size of my garage. Not judging, but playing drums in the park must not pay well. Some of them smoke and you have to hold your breath when you go in for a hug. I strongly believe my cousin has flea bites all over her. Some of the personal hygiene resembles their house keeping skills. Half of them have never been to a dentist. My one cousin ... not the sharpest knife in the drawer ... will tell stories that nobody else ever remembers. For the most part, they are nice people. It is my family. Its always interesting. I have to force my kids to go and there's about a 20% chance my wife will come.
  12. That is very cool. We have a similar setup. We have met a bunch of families within our city through friendships our kids have made and have become very close. Plus I am very blessed to have a lot of friends/family that I do things with over the years. I had almost 2 weeks off from work and had something going on dam near every night. Hosted the wifes family for Christmas eve. Neighbors and friends came over and it ended up being a late night. Went to my mom's on Christmas day. My dad's side of the family had their first get together in a few years. That is always interesting due to numerous reasons. Met some friends out for the College playoff games. Went to another friends New Years eve. Had our annual guy's night out last Thursday. Got together with some other friends last Wednesday to continue our Risk Legacy game. We had our friends Christmas dinner outing as well. I'll have to research flaming sambucas. My liver needs a break and my fat ass needs to go to the gym.
  13. Happy New Year! Not to put a damper on this, but ... I had a buddy that I met via Xbox. I played COD with him years ago a lot so we got pretty tight. In fact, I visited him in Oregon a few years back. He began to develop health issues due to a cyst in his brain. There really wasn't anything they could do and it got to the point where he quit playing Xbox. Got a call from his cousin last new years that he took his own life. He and his family were good people and it was a sad situation. Fast forward to this year. We are at our friends house for a new years party. We met through our kids and all of us parents have gotten pretty tight. Great group of people. The guy hosting the party got a call and found out his father took his own life. Sounds like there were some health issues going on with him as well. They had a very strained relationship over the years. Needless to say, this is the 2nd New Years in a row where I have known someone to take their own life. Both were planned out to the point where everyone looked back and said they had a feeling something was up. Anyone else experience this or hear of this? And ... if any of you fucks do something like this I will make sure to hunt you down in the after life!
  14. Did well in fantasy football this year ... I think I am going to treat myself to a new PC
  15. Playoff picture is clearing up. AFC is wide open. Every team has a glaring weakness. Saints are going to be very tough to beat at home. Feel like the Bears are one of the only teams that can go in there and win.
  16. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
  17. This. And I'm thinking of getting forza and playing the shit out of it. And I'll be watching football.
  18. Thank you. It is hard for other fan bases to understand the complete lack of hope we have endured for over a generation. My son is driving. During his life, they have never made the playoffs and only finished higher than 4th 3 times...in a 4 team division.
  19. After spending years wandering around the back woods of NFL irrelevancy, it FINALLY feels like the Browns are building something. Something that will be real, sustained and meaningful. We're back baby!
  20. Usually make cookies, Sugar and chocolate chip. I believe I posted the recipe some time ago.
  21. Wood shoes and tulips? Not sure about food.
  22. Wife's family at my house for Christmas eve. Over to my moms on Christmas day. I have off work from the 20th to the end of the year, so hopefully I can unwind and get away from work. Next year is going to be one of the more eventful at my office in quite some time. Lots of reorgs and stuff. My job should be safe, but you never know. I know personally, I am due for a big change in roles.
  23. I had messaged him before to check in. He just said there was nothing for him here atm. I know he quit facebook awhile back too. Maybe turning full recluse? Midlife crisis?
  24. How's it going? Baby steps ... remember, it took you a long time to get out of shape. And it will take you a long time to get back into shape. Marathon, not a sprint!
  25. That made me laugh harder than anything else in the joke thread
