this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Let's hear it!
I've recently moved back to the A2 area after a few years away, and sadly most of my tennis hitting buddies have since moved out of the area. The tennis meetup sites don't seem to have a lot to offer around here, so I figured I'd reach out to the MGoBlogosphere. Anyone interested in meeting up for a hit? I'm in the NTRP 4.0-4.5ish range. If there's any interest, I'll post an email in the thread so we can get in touch.
Assume that JH has mandated that all mgobloggers must drive a pick-up truck, as he does, though it doesn't have to be a Ford. Assume also you are not overly constrained by budget issues. What make, model, year, drive-train and power option do you get for your pick-up?
Some of you have no need or desire for a pick-up, but play along anyway. This should be particularly easy for you folks that own an SUV of some sort, which is really the kissing cousin of the pick-up (ask someone from ohio if you don't know what 'kissing cousin' means).
Have a great, warm, sunny Thursday, and remember, T-minus 35 days until no more OT threads....
As a cord-cutter who is wary of off-shore (illegal) streaming sites, I thought I'd share this with the board. ESPN3/Watch ESPN provides many free streams of their events, just without their normal on-air "talent". In the last few weeks, I've watched MLS soccer in Spanish, the "International Feed" of the British Open (English, with Scottish accents), and the French Open without any PBP at all (fascinating and enjoyable). I wasn't aware of how extensive this selection was; between this and watching the Gold Cup/Women's World Cup en espanol with an antenna it's been a good summer.
The big question, of course, is this: Has anybody found a college football game this way? I'm not holding my breath.
With one long month until football season, I have to say I am grateful for the new video game Rocket League. It is so much fun and such a huge time suck that will make August fly by. For those not familiar, it's a car racing / soccer hybrid. It's currently available as a free PS Plus download for PS4.
Any other Rocket League players here?
(This is my first MGoBoard thread post, so apologies if I've done something wrong. I tried a search for recent video game threads, but apparently MGoSearch is down.)
