    Not at all, and I didn't mean to imply that parents choose Religious based schools strictly for the religion based education. My point was, that is one of the key differentiators between public and religious schools, and it's something that public schools cannot provide. For some, that's the deciding factor. For others it's the more rigid structure. Obviously, we all know sports can be a reason why kids choose any one school over the other,...

    Me too. As a lifelong Eagles fan (and former season ticket holder), I'm definitely rooting for Andy. I was all for him leaving when the Eagles let him go, but he did rescue the team from the Rich Kotite, Ray Rhodes era. If the Eagles hadn't gotten a Super Bowl a couple years ago, I may have felt a little different. If the Chiefs get off to another slow start like they have the last two games, they will be in trouble against the 49ers.

    So the other coaches have BW's back because they don't want the football team to be successful..because a successful football teams means they would lose athletes? And Highlands needs to make a change, because football is more important than those other sports? Pardon me, but that sounds absolutely crazy. Most of the kids that are making those types of choices, are making them before high school. And while I'm sure it happens, I simply can't...

    These programs weren't necessarily having success (at least at the level they are experiencing now) back when the football program was winning state championships. And to be fair, while they are having success, none of those have won a state championship. State titles are hard to win. Success in one, two or even three sports does not guarantee success in others. And likely, some of the kids that would have chosen football are now choosing to...

    $2k is probably the bare minimum budget you would be looking at. Night time, handheld, shooting action from a distance is not something that's very easy to do with budget equipment. I did sports photography as a side hustle for many years, so I do know a little about this. A DSLR with a long, fast (low constant aperture) is what you'll need. The two items below get you in the game. The camera body is refurbished but it's a solid mid level...

    So men can’t be sexually assaulted by other men? It happens more often than you would think. You can’t just go up to strangers (or really anyone) and slap them on the butt.

    I really like Jet's pizza, at least the Detroit, thick, rectangular pizza. It's a little pricey, which is why I don't get it often.

    Believe it or not, it’s just as hard for the puppy. It is a lot of work, more than most realize or expect if they’ve never been through it before. It does get easier, and it is worth all the struggle. Hang in there, don’t give up. You won’t regret it.

My top two choices in the list of Nominees were Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy. I probably won't tak the time to watch this years induction ceremony.

    How many times I can't answer. Puppy's will go more often, probably several times a day. My adult dog goes twice per day, but we control her food...she eats in the morning and at night. I will say output is dependent on input. So if you feed him high quality food, the output will be much easier to deal with. Good food is expensive. But it's worth the price since you won't deal with messy, large volumes of really smelly poop.

    The Titans have been big underdogs in their 2 playoff wins. And if they beat the Chiefs, they will have beaten the top 3 seeds. It’s a tall task. But they’ve beaten the Chiefs already this year, and have been in playoff mode for several weeks. I’d really like to see Reid get back to the Super Bowl, but he’s got a history of not doing well in these types of games. This could be a Chief’s blowout, but I can see the Titans pulling this off too.

    There's lots of guys who could lay claim to greatest drummer. Rolling Stone has Peart at #4 behind Bonham, Moon and Ginger Baker. Not to mention guys like Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. The thing the always stood out about Peart was that he was fascinating to watch, surrounded by that giant kit that he played, and that he was just so technically proficient.

    Only a 3 team district (with Silver Grove closing), so the top seed automatically advances, which really was the case even when it was a 4 or 5 team district. I can't remember a time when the 1 vs 4/5 game was ever even close (at least in most sports...baseball might be the exception). Really, the 2 vs 3 game was the exciting game (except for the final), and that really won't change. At least now you don't have to sit through the 1 vs 4 blowout.

    Yep. There aren't very many second opportunities because these guys don't miss that many questions, although Brad and James missed more than usual yesterday. Brad has been finding daily doubles, but he hasn't been answering correctly, so he's been a non factor so far. Missing a daily double or not finding it at all or at the right time has been the difference in all these games. Finding it too early is as bad as not finding it at all.

    Yep. I recognized that one too, as I grew up 1.5 hours from Philly, and most of our news and TV stations were based in Philly. Antonio Caponigro, Bruno's consigliere was the one who ordered the hit on Bruno. He was found dead, beaten badly, in the Bronx a few weeks later. There was a lot a violence and murders over the next few years. Interesting that you say Don Corleon was loosely based on Bruno. I had always heard he was based on...

    They can’t not have it scheduled for days 4-7....that would be a spoiler in itself. I’m guessing it does go the distance, or at least 6 days.

    After Two days, Rutter seems to be struggling a bit. Last night, the clues seemed a little easier to me, but the contestants missed more last night than the previous night. Still many of these clues, I can’t even give an educated guess.

    Very good but not great. The effect of making DeNiro younger was not very convincing...he still moved and carried himself like an old man. I thought Pesci was great, and he was my favorite character. As others have said, it was just too long. Not sure how they could have shortened it but it took me two nights to watch it.

    Touche. To be clear, I'd like to see a couple decent sized snows each winter. I don't want to see blizzards, or snow cover all winter. I'm about as far north as I want to go.

    I understand your point. And I see how randomness helps the "little" guy. I just fall in the camp of rewarding the better teams. But your point is also one of the reasons I feel like classification needs to happen as well.

    I'm normally pretty good at answering the clues, but man those questions were hard. The one category with the rhyming, 3 part answers, those guys crushed, and I coudn't even process the question to think of an answer. And while there were some wrong answers given, I think nearly every question, except the daily doubles that were missed, was correctly answered by someone.

    Of course that happens with a random draw, and with a random draw it can happen to a team that doesn't deserve to be punished.

    I can only imagine how little there really is to do around camp, so I'm sure the contestants have plenty of time just to search around. And we don't really know how big the camp area really is. Now that you mention it, food really doesn't seem to be much of an issue anymore. Even fire seems easy. Early in the show people were always hungry, and being the food provider was a sure way to give yourself a chance to stay in the game. And...

    I understand the idols and advantages keep alliances from just steamrolling and taking over the show. I just wish there was more work and effort required to finding them. It still just seams crazy that people can just wander around the island and find idols. I can’t find my wallet quickly in my house, but contestants can’t easily find idols hidden away in the jungle.
