I'm hoping to get out to Napa this summer and if so will visit CW's vineyard. I'd thought he specialized in reds (and want to get an autographed cab or two) but if the Sauvignon Blanc is a good value, I'll happily put it in the fridge for next football season!

rocks. Then a Honig sauvignon blanc to go with the spatchcock chicken from the GoblueBBQ feature.
If you haven't made the chicken, I highly recommend it. It's easy and quite tasty.

Appreciate the kind comments.
No offense to all the other fathers in the entire galaxy, but mine's the best. He taught me more about life by the time I was 6 years old than most people learn ever.
Life was a demanding tutor for him--and for most of his generation.

Pretty amazing. I think I mentioned a few weeks ago here that I very recently got to fly the same gun position as my dad, (a 93-year old WWII bomber crewmember) in the last airworthy model of the bomber he crewed.
It is sobering, to say the least, to think about trying to keep your oxygen line and mask from failing, staying plugged into the ship's electricity so you don't freeze to death, keeping track of how low your ammo is--and, by the way, watching all the time for attacking FW 190s and ME 262s. All at the ripe old age of 19 or 20.
I'm a private pilot and am extremely cautious about things like weather, and I whenever I fly with my dad--either commercial or when I've flown him--I'm struck by how calm and easygoing he is about stuff that freaks a lot of people out. Thunderstorms, bumps, lightning--his response always is "no one is shooting at us."

Sgt Tipper. Well done and thank you.

For the reminder. 1% margin with 18 hours to go. Attack this contest with EUtM!

Dude, mark it zero.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||Ok||
I stand corrected.

about whether this is disingenuous or not, but it's more than our own conference did to Ped State.

are football miles. Disrespekt season resumes in Sept.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome||
it'll be a long 64.5 miles back to E Landfill.

Thanks for going Blue. Expect to thrive at Michigan.

For your gesture as well as for posting this.
As a (ahem, humblebrag) pilot I'm constantly amazed that we are safer on a commercial airliner than we are in our own homes. People like Ed White have made that possible.
Recently I toured the last remaining airworthy B-24 J with my father, who flew 30 combat missions in WWII in that model. Then I bought a spot in it for a 30-minute excursion into the past, spending nearly the entire flight at the gun position he flew. In the warm sun, free of flak or enemy fighters (I did joke with him when we got back that we bagged 2 FW-190s though). Anyway, all I could think of while scanning the sky and imagining what 1944 was like was, holy shit, what courage. And what a debt we owe them.

for posting. She was simply beautiful.
I'd say she was a cross between, say, Donna Reed and Marilyn Monroe. (Pushed boundaries, made her own brand, to call her "easy on the eyes" would be the biggest of understatements--to us guys who grew up watching her on TV...)
But she really was her own person, and she changed that industry for the better--which was her point.

we called Paul Carey the "Voice of God," because of the tenor of his voice. But Ernie would be #1 on Rushmore in my book.
I'd also include Keith Jackson, of course. And Al Michaels for his call in the 1980 Olympic hockey game: "Do you believe in miracles?!!"

Thanks Dr. Sap. What great memories. Thank you.

Which doesn't really make sense if you understand the German, but I'll run with it. So happy to see Alabama get theirs tonight.

Just voted and we're at #2. This is unacceptable.

An interesting question that now has me curious to find it. YouTube.de redirects to YouTube.com in the US, so unless you can spoof to a DACH IP address (assuming you're not in one of those countries) that would seem to be not an option. There are various scenes auf deutsch on YouTube.com though, including that one:

OP. Coach Beilein is currently 2nd.
Logins and passwords from last year still appear to work BTW, so if you voted last year, it looks like you can skip a step.
