- ~$2M to Ark, which some say is chump change, but apparently the whole reason Warde went with this sched. was so M could have 6 home games every year, b/c apparently only 5 home games puts M in the red in any given year. Christ on the cross, they get $35M from B10 network (soon to be 45?) and they are still living on a margin of ONE home football game every year?
- OSU/MSU/ND all on the road or at home. I'm actually not too upset about this b/c it's 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Sure it's nice to try and smooth out the schedule, but as bad as the even years are, the odd years are that much to the good. I understand season ticket holders not liking it, but the same theory applies and you still get PSU and NE (and Wisc?) at home. Not awful. PLus, that was more of a B10/Dave Brandon screw over than an ND one.
- Playing in A2 in Oct- middle of the B10 schedule. doesn't M have like 3 open dates in Sept in '19? ND couldn't make ANY of those work?
- ending in South BEnd and starting there - NBD to me since this is a 2 game series short term - tho would like to start in A2 post 2019 to right the sequence.

But if he knows who to target he's a roadgrader. If he has to think pre-snap, he either gets it worng or it slows down his play making and he floats around.
tough thing to say, but man how long can a lighbulb take to turn on?

This series always goes like 3 posts longer than I expect, partly b/c you feel like you have to go 25 rounds deep, partly b/c you started it like June 5th.
Than said, I really feel like the determining factor will be who picks the best back up long snapper

I can't stand yard sales. Wlaking up to someone's house, looking though their old crap and paying 50c for something they'd toss in the trash otherwise. Having one sucks too b/c it takes so much time to prepare and set up and you have to be out there for hours on end. The hours you put in might get you $200-400, but you're lookinga t probably 20-30 hours of set up, pricing and selling Fri-Sat-Sun.
Wife loves shopping at them (shocking), and the best ones are the baby clothes sales in a good subdivision.
Funny story I heard was a buddy of mine had a sale, some old lady walked up and wanted to negotiate the price of a 25c mug or something down to 10c. Dude looked at her, picked up the mug and smashed it on the ground, walked away.

I'd love to hear what ND "compromised" to get this deal done. So far, M compromised:
I mean, did ND amend their ACC schedule? The USC series? the MSU/Pur/Navy/BC series?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||If you tell the wait staff at||
If you tell the wait staff at the beginning that there will be sep. checks, it's NBD. If you have 13 people all sep billed and they have to figure it out at the end, that's a PITA of course, but the server should have known to begin with (unless they are young and hew to serving).
Or, you could do what I do* and set 5 singles on the table at the beginning and tell the server everytime time they fuck up or let my drink run empty, I take away a dollar for their tip.
* I've only done this when I actually know the server really well, like good friends.

The travel stuff is pretty outragous IMO. But LL is fine. Not as much participation per capita perhaps, but I think the overall numbers are decent, at least in NYS.
The thing is, LL is based on volunteer coaching (parents) and since most of the parents are Americans, they *think* they know the game but in reality don't know shit - especially teaching it. In my little league most coaches just throw out the best kid at catching at 1st, the best arms on the IF and the rest in the OF/C. get 2-3 kids to hit BP and 90mins later everyone is bored as hell. No skill development, not teaching kids how to catch, throw, field, hit.
So I can understand parents of kids with potential and "want to" not making progress in little league and moving to a better situation

the good news is, the dollar should strengthen significantly, not just in comparison to the Euro or the BP, but globally as people look to invest in stable and stong economies. SHort term, our paychecks to a bit further.
