    I have not had a chance to post in this thread or read it, as I've done a poop-ton of stressful driving the past two days. St. Louis traffic is horrid! Anyway, my dad was a recon medic (LRRP) in Vietnam. Grandpa (Dad's dad) was a combat engineer with Patton in Africa, Italy and Belgium. Uncle John was Navy in Tonkin during Vietnam. His son is a career MP, posting in Germany and Korea, among others. My brother was in Afghanistan and Iraq with...

    Windy out here. Kinda disappointed I haven't seen much cotton, and most of the oil wells we saw were in Illinois. Lots of cattle though. Somehow or another the hotel we're staying at for Dad's group's gathering is also hosting at least 5 HS boys' hoops teams at the Oral Roberts U. camp across the street. Couldn't get a swim in tonight. Mom said there was a choir group of 100+ but she wasn't sure where from. Did I mention we're across the...

    A good friend, an Englishman, said to me today something to the effect of "England are sloppy." Yeesh.

    Over time, I've become more drawn-in to the World Cup and all the hoopla. I find it much more interesting than I used to. But please, somebody help me with some grammarical stuff that's just flat-out bugging the pants off me: Why do they refer to their teams in such a god-awful way? In my mind, "England are a good squad" is like fingernails to the blackboard. Why do they do this? Who says "Kentucky are a good basketball team?" Or "Scott...

    Vietnam reunion? That's a long time to have to simmer on that stuff those guys had to endure. My dad first started getting up with his group in '88, and it was far too long coming. My dad was in 11th Armored Cav, but more specifically he was Air Rifle Patrol (ARP) and even more specifically he was Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP). He was in country in '68 and '69 and came back home with an unbelievably cool handlebar mustache, from the...

    Hate that I missed this thread from its genesis. It's been a fun read. I agree, but it's a good look in general to have a few in football, and 1-2 in hoops, as long as they're capable of contributing somehow. Weigh that against the horrible risk of second-guessing backlash if you miss, especially if it comes back to bite directly. I would love to hear more of the kid's words.

    I rented it a while back so I could be up-to-date before the latest Avengers came out and I loved it. Very funny and I'm glad they explored that angle of Thor, and went along with it in Avengers. It's on Netflix now if anybody hasn't seen it.

    My brother got one for my dad about 5-6 years ago, and he's used it maybe a dozen times. Brother is mad, but he won't totally admit it, that he has had to retrieve it and take it home with him. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I knew it would eventually be back with him. Nor did I have the heart to repeat the "I told you so" from back when he initially bought the darned thing. Dad likes his Weber kettle grill and doesn't want to...

    In Pike Co. when I lived there 15+ years ago, anywhere two creeks met there would be a pharmacy, always with bars on the windows. Where creeks meet in the mountains, roads meet, and pharmacies, convenience stores, banks, churches and fast-food joints always congregated there. The bigger the road intersection, the more stuff is packed in there. Where in NoKy is it like that? Bad comparison. Unless Florence is full of disabled coal miners.

    So I'm there now, and it's also become obvious that I also appreciate their ability to sift through the melange of Twitter weirdness and find gold nuggets like this, and subsequently comment on them. :lol2: Barstool Sports

    The white parts of it contrasted with the red brick at night makes it look like two beers with big heads on them. I hope it was intentional, but if not it's the best happy accident ever.

    I've grown to enjoy the site in the last several months. Another one I hate myself for loving is whenever a new "Grading The Latest SST" comes up.

    I remember watching Jon Hood's Madisonville team play in the LIT one year I think he was a junior then. It was hard to watch because he had no supporting cast whatsoever and DeSales dragged them all over the court. They won 20+ games and took their district that year, but I remember being surprised at the time that they actually did that and won a game in the region. They were sub-.500 his senior year, and I may have seen them then as well, so...

    Is this why I was always told that Johnny's Toys was the place you could buy replacement accessories for the figurines that invariably got lost or eaten by my dog? Unfortunately I never got to find out because mom was scared to drive any further north than Florence.

    Very sad. I didn't know him personally, but our paths crossed fairly regularly. In this age of newsrooms being stretched to the threads, folks like him fill in a lot of coverage gaps, and are incomprehensibly invaluable when it comes to making sure kids' photos get in the paper and online.

    And this has always been the case. Blame the American public for its insatiable lust for lurid things. True. Gotta give the people what they want. I think there was a song about that. This bolded term bothers me in the extreme. As though there are newsrooms where people are champing at the bit for the next one in order to cure a "slow news day." Journalists are people too. I bet the suicide rate for the journalism profession is...
