    Hey that is only 100 miles from my wife's hometown, and not far off the route. So I guess maybe I we will try to swing by some time. College Football HoF used to be in South Bend, IN. Now in downtown Atlanta near Centennial Park. Actually ate at the Chick-fil-a in that building during Thanksgiving break.

    Scott Boras may be a jerk (and the modern day godson of Marvin Miller), but you have to admit he is good to his clients. Had contracts singed this week for $814 million. Of course I am sure he takes a nice cut out of that. Owners don't care, they will just pass it to the fans unfortunately.

    I guess for baseball 1 out 2 isn't bad. Ted Simmons well deserving gets into the Hall of Fame. Marvin Miller is the root of most of the things wrong with baseball, but they finally vote him in too.

    I do not sleep as well as I used to, which the Fitbit confirms (my wife had already told me). Have family members that use CPAP machines. But prefer to avoid that. Just as another reason to loose weight.

    Watching Virgin River with my wife. Amazed at how old Henry Steele's tutor from One on One and Otter from Animal House have gotten. I guess the last 42 years might have aged me a little too.

    Quote from max.patch: “i did a short hike sunday from 3 forks to long creek falls and then on to the cemetary where i had lunch and then returned. probably 4 miles round trip. the falls had more volume than usual for this time of year. wore shorts in december! really nice day. anyway, i helped a woman and her daughter on their first ever AT backpacking trip (and 4th hike ever) get off the trail. they waaaay overestimated how far they could get -- it would have been impossible for them to get to …

    Quote from LIhikers: “All this talk about cranberries was the reason I put dried cranberries in my oatmeal this morning,. hmmm good.

    Quote from IMScotty: “All I can offer.... Years ago on a drive out west I camped one night along the Erie Canal path. That morning I walked a mile or two along it, it was pretty and flat, I enjoyed the history, I meant to get back someday hoping to bike some of it but I never did. That is all. ” Maybe you can hookup with LIHikers and knock a little of it out together.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Rain, snow, and ice made made our trip home an 11 hour drive. It didn't help that we got a little off course in both Ohio and New Jersey. Glad to be home, sitting still, and safe and sound. And I'm thankful to have seen our son, his wife, and her family. He's lucky, he got nice in-laws. ” I am sure his wife's family feels the same.
