    Neutral. While I'll eat gingerbread cookies, they are pretty low on my list of cookies I want to eat.

    If you are on a pick up team of mine, we are playing zone. I'm playing zone even if everyone else is playing man.

    I'm calling my lawyer to make sure my will is good to go, then my wife and kids to say goodbye. I'm not beating any of those guys in one on one.

    And lets add, that most of what we "know" about almost all transfer situations is hearsay, conjecture and just pure assumptions and opinion. Very few of us are anywhere close to a position where we would know for certain not only if the "rules" were followed or not, or but in many what the rules really even are. Unless you are on the transfer approval committee, you really don't know everything that's going on.

    Right now I wouldn't be very good. But for most of my life, despite being of average high, I could play a little hoops. I was a good shooter, with really good range. Wasn't a great defender (mostly from lack of effort), but had an ok handle, and could create my own shot. I certainly wasn't a standout, but I could more than hang in the average pickup game.

    Most successful athletes are highly competitive and supremely confident. They enjoy (and need) the competition as much as if not more than the money. It's a main reason so many struggle after they retire, and struggle with substance abuse, gambling, etc. Competing is what drives them.

    That's one thing that people fail to mention (or notice) when complaining about transfers being for sports only. For the most part, having success in academics is a necessary part of having success in athletics.

    I have an iPad for years, and currently the the 9.7 iPad Pro. I had a mini for awhile, and really did not like the size. You could can still find iPad Airs (which is also 9.7 inches) at pretty reasonable prices. I use mine for note taking ( ypthe Pro is compatible with the Apple Pencil), web browsing, game playing, watching movies etc.

    I thought I still had a chance going into the Sunday night game even with Mcown not showing up. Bell had a big night, and felt like Bryant might go off too with JuJu's suspension. But Boswell cancelled 2/3 of Bell's night and Bryant caught nothing but short balls. Still happy with how things turned out after starting the season 1-5 and keeping things together with what was really a junk lineup outside of Bell. Now I get to start next year...

    I struggle with both these guys. Both really nice players. Morris was famously tough, and a workhorse. I wouldn't consider either one of the top players of their era. I'm not against having these guys in, but I think they are borderline at best.

    Thought I was going to have a chance, but couldn't overcome Josh Mcnown putting up a zero. Leaving Stewart and his 28 points on the bench didn't help either.

    As a long time Eagles fan, I’ve been waiting for something bad to happen this season. Hopefully Wentz’s comes back strong from this injury for next year. In the meantime, let’s hope Files can recapture some of his magic from 2013.

    Eagles. Grew up 1.5 hours from Philly and my parents were both fans of all Philly sports. My fandom was cemented in my college years as the Eagles used to hold their training camp where I went to college. This was during the Buddy Ryan/Randall/Reggie years. Got to meet and hang out with lots of the players and have a few cool stories to tell.

    I was worried Ingram would have a big workload and possibly a big game after Kamara went down early. I still think you have the upper hand in this matchup though.

    Which isn't very likely. If he's serious about playing baseball, his only real chance initially would likely be in an Independent League.

    So many?? Yes there are kids here and there that transfer, many of which have legitimate address changes or other changes in living status. There's no denying it happens. But I wouldn't exactly call it rampant. The fact that there a few that get made a big deal out of, is what leads people to believe there are "so many".

    Well, the thing is, there are only so many starting spots on each team. There simply isn't room for everybody to just transfer whenever they want. And if somebody wants to transfer for a better opportunity to play, so what?? Again, while transfers may increase, you're going to see a handful, rather than widespread occurrences. So not enough spots coupled with the fact that it's really inconvenient to go to school outside of your district is...

    I think your stretching it a bit. Would there be more movement?? Yes. Would kids transfer from season to season?? No way. That thought is pure hyperbole, especially when so much of the state is rural and options are limited.

    She has played borderline brilliantly up until last night. And she was in perfect position to move on with an idol and an advantage. This season has amazed me how these players can’t keep their mouths shut. You can’t trust anyone in this game, so why you would tell anyone you have an idol or an advantage is just beyond comprehension. I loved the move of burning the other half of the idol. If I were Lauren I’d have done something to get...

    While I disagree with the contention that high school sports are boring, I do agree with the sentiment that it's just High School sports. Ultimately, a bunch of teenagers playing a game. For whatever reason, too often we try to make them out to be more than what they really are.

    That would take way too much coordination to pull off. And there's too much going on during a play for someone to make the snap decision to say "hey I'm going get my illegal shot in now that my teammate has already gotten a flag". I'm guessing most Steelers didn't know a penalty had occurred. And in reality, what would doing so accomplish...at best you'll likely get fined.

    What's the difference?? So they go for one, then score another TD and get the running clock anyway. I'm not for staying on the gas, and rubbing the other teams nose in it. But going for two when up 34 points is a complete non issue. Is kicking the one that much better??

    There are transfers that happen all the time. We only hear about the sports related ones, because that’s all that some people care about. Personally, I don’t care why anyone transfers...people make there own decisions as to what’s important to them. It’s not up to me nor is it any of my business...what’s goofy to me may not be so goofy to someone else.

    I've said this so many times, but nobody bats an eye when kids transfer from place to place unless they play sports. We as adults often times take sports way to seriously. And while I understand the life lessons sports can teach, I think we overestimate the impact that they have, and make them out to be bigger than they really are. We get bent out of shape when a kid wants to transfer for what he/she perceives to be a better situation, but...

    I guess I should have taken botany in school. I stand corrected. Although, while technically it's a fruit, most would recognize and call things like squash (of which a pumpkin is a big orange version of) and tomatoes veggies. I'll need to think about and correct my equation.
