    R.I.P. Carl Weathers (1948-2024)

    Really sucks. Really enjoyed his work and from all accounts was a great guy.

    Country singer Toby Keith dies at 62

    Agree 100% on the older stuff is better. I really like his older stuff too. His newer songs are good too, I just really prefer his older songs. Overall he's got a really nice catalog of songs. Just checked out his album "35 biggest hits", and there's a lot of great stuff on there. Similar...

    High School spring practice

    This is true. For hockey, when a kid is in 9th grade, you can choose to play your second year of Bantam hockey for your youth association or play for the high school team. I would guess about 95% of kids play Bantams. My older kid did, and my younger kid who will be a 9th grader/2nd year...

    High School spring practice

    Don't doubt it one bit about missing football games for Tryouts. Tryouts, at least at larger associations, can last for about 2 weeks for PeeWee and Bantam aged kids. That's bound to interfere with other sports like football. My kids didn't play a fall sport, so we never ran into that, but...

    High School spring practice

    My kids each play two sports at a larger metro area school, and it can be tough. They both play hockey and it's basically year round. However we go by the old rule that whatever season you're in comes first. There's been arguments with other kids/coaches about missing things, but whatever...

    Fess Up: Hardcover, Paperback, Audio Book, or Kindle/e-book?

    Hardcover by far the best, but man are ebooks convenient. I usually put a couple hardcover books on my Christmas list, but when I finish a book at 9pm and want a new one, it's just too easy to download one to my tablet.

    Watched "Facing Nolan" the other night. If you're an 80's baseball fan and/or a fan of Nolan Ryan, check it out. Thought it was well done and interesting. Can't believe that he has zero Cy Young awards. Neither could George Brett from his reaction in the film. Most interesting thing to me...

    What are your favorite music videos of all-time?

    I'm a huge fan of movie score, and as you said this has been in a few different movies even though not written specifically for movies. From what I've read, it was actually written in response to the Iraq War. This is one of my favorite pieces of movie music, even if not technically for a...

    2023 MN High School Football season

    It's interesting that they are so involved with youth thru HS in EP. I can see why that would turn into a successful program from top to bottom. My experience with my kids in the NW burbs is the complete opposite. My older son plays hockey and baseball, and when he got to HS it became...

    Big Ten Power Rankings

    agreed, but I do think 11-13 are worse than 4-10. You're spot on though that 4-10 could change all around at any time. Pretty amazing that they're all so mediocre.

    Suzanne Somers has died at age 76

    Furley. Roper was great too, but Furley took it to another level for me. Don Knotts was a master of that role.
