Thank you veterans. Much respect to my heroes

11/11/2017 - 2:47am Dammit, now you have me

Dammit, now you have me doubting myself. I was in the 7th grade! I grew up thinking I was playing in the waves that day. But November is pretty late in the year. Maybe I am wrong.

11/10/2017 - 1:22pm Melanin,  I am assuming you

Melanin,  I am assuming you are swimming in Superior.  Lake Michigan stays a few degrees warmer for awhile.  I think it's around 55-58 around Nov. 1.  Still cold for sure but 30 years ago we were swimming fools.

11/10/2017 - 12:56pm Thanks for that link

Thanks for that link stephenrjking.  Very interesting stuff and I was amazed how similar that thread was to this one.

11/10/2017 - 12:08pm You bet. as a kid, we couldnt

You bet. as a kid, we couldnt wait until October and November because that is when the big waves came.  Yes the air was freezing but suprisingly, the water was still bearable.

11/10/2017 - 11:29am I read the coast guard report

I read the coast guard report on the sinking and there are two theories.  The Fitz scraped the bottom when it came too close to a shoal and started taking on water.  She eventually took a nose dive all the way to the bottom.  The second theory is she was hit by a rogue wave and broke in half on the surface.  I don't know if anybody ever settled on one theory.

11/10/2017 - 11:17am Very cool story Melanin.  I

Very cool story Melanin.  I was swimming in Lake Michigan on that faithful day.  Biggest waves I ever swam in Lake Michigan. 

10/27/2017 - 2:13pm Sorry to hijack a thread but

Sorry to hijack a thread but it looks like the mainstream media is starting to pick up on the bad medical treatment Speight received after his injury.  Sounds like Speights parents are really blasting Purdue.  Great job Speights!!

I'm sorry, but I cant seem to let this go.  Did you just simulate a double post?  Your Don't is spelled wrong in your second post.

02/28/2017 - 9:18am my question is does anyone

my question is does anyone know the cost of an apollo moon mission?  I thought privatization was supposed to be cheaper.  It does not seem like a money saving endever.

I was getting nice and pissed off until I read "roiles my nards."  Now I'm back on even ground.

No.  He is a piece of trash because he lied about his pay for play football program.  Then he has the balls to publicy challenge anybody to find any violations.

I thought I missed the Becton part so I re read it.  Do not see him mentioned.  Strange?

why does the movie Fargo keep going through my head when I read your post? (#17)

12/28/2016 - 4:11pm Let me take a crack at how

Let me take a crack at how important this game is to me.  If we win we are 11-2.  We finish with a better record than coach's first year. The program shows improvement over a great first year.  Recruits see which way the program is heading.  so, yeah, this game is kind of important.

With their ex punter Butler booming 25 yard punts I didn't think it would be long before they moved Wile to the active roster.

I shook Bo's hand when I was 8 years old and felt field turf for the first time.  From then on I have been a diehard Michigan fan.  I had no idea who he was.  My Bo story.

do you remember a guy having a heart attack at the launching because of the huge wave created by the ship entering the water? There was a show on PBS about that.

I remember that day.  I was in seventh grade (yes, I am old). I was swimming in lake Michigan that day.  It was freezing but the waves were huge.  I remember the article in the paper about the "Fitz" the next day.
