    Quote from LIhikers: “Scotty, I think you've hit the nail right on the head. We're becoming way too "civilized" for our own good. ” I think that is what Benton MacKaye thought around 100 years ago.

    Quote from max.patch: “baines is a puzzler; fell off the ballot after 5 years and never got more than 6% of the vote. perhaps such decisions need to be made by more than a 16 member committee. i'd put baines in the hall of really good players. ” Totally agree. If you ways DH, Edgar Martinez is much more deserving. Old Veterans Committee didn't want to let anyone in. Now probably due to some of the steroids guys getting in, the new committee willing to let all their old buddies in.

    Nothing personally against Lee Smith, but no way I want him or Trevor Hoffman or even Bruce Sutter closing a game for me when Billy Wagner is available. Sabermetrically Wagner is the best HOF elgible reliever there is including all the guys already in. Now that will change once Mariano Riveria becomes elgible.

    Don't normally pay any attention to the NFL, but when I saw the Dolphins (team of my youth) upset the Patriots, I though it might be worth watching the replay while I was eating. You may just want to speed ahead to the 5:40 mark in the video. Sometimes brilliant coaches still do stupid things (or perhaps they are just willing to take more risks, and sometimes they don't workout). Worth watching. msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/the-d…tackling-angle/ar-BBQIMFR

    Before becoming a carpenter and general contractor my dad was a baker. So he still used to bake a lot of bread, donuts, pies, cobblers, etc.. for us. I guess that cursed me with a weakness for fresh bread. But it sure does smell and taste good.

    Quote from StalkingTortoise: “What I found interesting is that my original inReach had the same issue. Bought it, followed the instructions to connect it to my computer to check for firmware updates, and killed it. DeLorme quickly replaced it and all was good for many years. At the time, I figured I had a bad unit, but maybe there is a coding flaw that a missing bit or two during downloads can cause a failure. I got mine to keep my wife happy - she's a chronic worrier and didn't like the times I…

    I have cached water before on the Ouachita Trail, but never food. Is not a place you could resupply or send a maildrop about half way through? Another alternative would be to park half way through with your resupply in your trunk. Catch a shuttle back to the beginning and then when you get to the other end catch another shuttle back to your car.

    Quote from chief: “just to add, if UCF beats LSU in the bowl game, they'll get my respect. after that if they continue in their ways i'd be happy to say they belong in the playoffs next year. ” That is one big advantage of March Madness, if you are any good, or even just peak at the right time, you get your shot. Even though I would later get an MBA from UofH, one of the greatest events in sports I ever saw was NC State taking down Phi Slama Jama. Great 30 for 30 called Survive and Advance. Terr…
