    I'll match that 8 and we did well financially on 5 of the 6 homes we owned/sold. Broke even on the custom home we owned for 10 years in Triple Crown before retiring to our 217 year old home in A-town.

    To that youth point, have heard Maximum Security was a May colt (fact, or not?). If true that means he is 3-4 months younger than the norm February birthdate, and means a lot in his developement. Might explain his sporadic behavior rounding that last turn his jockey attributed to being spooked by the crowd noise.

    Some of us drove Chevy six-bangers with three-on-the-tree. You could time your RPMs to shift into 2nd and then 3rd without using the clutch. Probably you younger guys have no clue. "The older we get, the better we used to be."

    I am still a Castleman fan; but, Hacker's 9-1 record adds another pretty heavy stat to the argument.

    During my working years I was always a new car guy. Am now well into my retirement years and my last 2 have been used private purchases from owners I know. Incidentally, after 40+++ years of going only to dealers for service, two different shops tried monkey business unneeded repairs on my wife. It will be very hard for me to ever buy or go back to them.

    In my generation you were laughed at if you couldn't drive a stick. In fact, I don't think any of our senior class members weren't proud of burning those tires in low then smiling if we could get a little screach in 2nd. No question, automatics were for girls. Until my best bud (farmboy) got a new '64 Chevrolet Malibu...midnight blue...with 283 engine....and a sweet little automatic 3 speed on the floor. His tobacco farming money bought this...

    Thanks for the heads-up. Pretty impressive credentials on Hacker. Power pitcher that gets it done at the plate, too. So much of Castleman's contributions don't show up in stat book unless you are there...like range in outfield...shotgun arm that keeps runners from advancing....baserunning savy....# of balks caused when on the bases. Hacker possibly does something similar; but, his measureables are pretty impressive. Great candidates. ...

    34-1 speaks pretty loudly. They don't have a patsy schedule to pad those numbers either. I like this team a lot. Exceptional defense, very solid offense throughout the line-up. Extraordinary intellect on the basepaths (example- Castleman intimidated COvCath pitchers into 2 balks yesterday). Just a savy baseball team. The vulnerability is on the mound with no shutdown power pitcher. Beechies have solid control/contact pitching, but not...

    Can only tell you the Beechies threw their freshman Holiday(?) who left after 5 with a 5-3 lead. Noah Carter came on to close out the last two innings; CC tied the score in the top of the 7th. So Carter got a BS and the W when Johnson banged the 2 out double to score Castleman who got HBP and intimated the pitcher into a balk that got him to 2nd.

    Correct, and often it is only two lanes. But, it is totally worth it. Beyond expectations! If our Lord wanted to provide a Heavenly golfing experience on earth, I think it would be Bandon Dunes.

    Beechwood knocks off two time defending 35th Region champs on a two out walkoff double by D. Johnson off top of Meinkin Field centerfield wall. This win takes the Tigers record to 34-1. Hopefully a Tiger fan can post some stats.

    So pleased for you. But, she is planning to disappoint you when you need her most. She has probably fully mastered making you even think you did something wrong and deserved what you got. I am convinced all golf clubs are female scripted at the factory to plot against success in our golf games.

    You're a lucky guy. Your buds are 100% correct. Hope you get to play all 4 courses, plus the Par 3 and leave a couple hours for cocktails and a hilarious time in the Punch Bowl. Until you do it, you haven't experienced the fun of losing a few bucks over a 200 ft. downhill putt that breaks 5 different directions. Lots of stories. Love to hear about your experiences. Biggest challenge is getting there! You'll understand later.

    Sure hate to see Maxium Security not running. Could have been a whaleof a story if he hd won both the Preakness and Belmont. Sadly the owner claimed nothing to run for once the Triple Crown was not a possibility. Just hollow vapors. He has blamed everyone but the reality of a totally inadvertant foul by his horse. The rules of racing in Ky are very explicit and he agreed in advance to abide by them. Stewards deision is final with no appeal....

    73rd birthday today. Plan is to shoot my age at Willows and hopefully have no holes left. Got to play way over my head. If norm repeats I should be about 2 holes short. But, strange things could happen. Got a new Taylormade Spyder X putter as a gift from my son. Retiring my old Ping Day after 42 years of loyal service. Can't decide if this is a divorce or funeral. Mixed emotions as I have wanted to kill her over the years, but at other...

    Glaring correction- Mark Pike was an awesome Tailback in his Dixie Heights' days. Bill Curry later converted him to the fulltime defensive DE/LB position. Suspect he went two ways at Dixie, but my brain is foggy on that.

    Maybe it should be its's own thread, but Billy Hamilton is outhitting Joey Votto on the season. Even striking out less per 100 plate appearances. Since he reverted to being a defensive hitter, he has not earned 20% of his $25million salary.

    Can't argue with your observations. Having known several addicts I do know it is one day at a time. Could see the tryout as the possible future sun rising that got him through many dark days. Now that it is here the risk of perceived failure is possibly the added challenge of getting through today; but, the many daily victories of getting this far might have created momentum to get through one more day.

    No snacks here. At 73, probably becoming a curmudgeon; but, people have forgotten how to eat with their mouths closed. Especially in the dark so nobody can see as they make enough noise with that popcorn to drown out all dialogue on the screen! Makes an old man cringe.
