Re: College: attending, paying for, etc.

Any chance he wants to provide free room and board to an incoming Freshman? He doesn't eat much (and by "much" I mean he will likely double your son's grocery bill). The campus is really nice and the town is great. That was honestly part of the decision for him. He didn't want to be in the...

Re: College: attending, paying for, etc.

Well, my oldest son is officially going to college next year. He will be a West Chester Golden Ram come next September. I paid the deposit last night and will do the housing deposit this weekend (we need to review all the material first and figure out what we are asking for). But, we have officially...

Re: 2020 Election Thread

I don't think Sanders ever claimed he was a pauper. I'm not sure where that characterization came from. And, he's written books before. I know the proceeds from a previous book were all donated to charity. The one you are referring to I think I read he kept that money and used it to buy a summer hou...

Re: 2020 Election Thread

The duration of the election cycle is really ridiculous. And, the amount of money it takes to compete in that election cycle is obscene and absolutely corrupting. You either end up with politicians who are completely and utterly compromised or you end up with billionaries who are completely and utte...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

I actually don't have a major problem with them going on strike if it comes to that. They have the right to collectively bargain for the best deal they can get. Fine. Just STFU about it . No one wants to hear multi-millionaires whine about money. Let the lawyers who run your union make any public s...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

I figured a lawyer would knit-pick over my number. I was kind of being sarcastic but as I was looking at DeGrom's number I am surprised he hasn't been paid more. The Mets made out like bandits so far on his contract. I thought they were paying DeGrom and Syndergaard a lot more money. The Mets are a...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

So, I was reading some stuff about the Machado signing and some perspectives on the baseball free agent market. Basically, what seems to be happening is the big starts like Manny Machado and (eventually) Bryce Harper are going to continue to bring in ridiculous dollar amounts and contracts. The &quo...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Sorry, I got lost at the notion that at 107 pitches deGrom would be conidered a "limited" pitch count in today's game. I think if deGrom goes 107 most nights, the Mets will be fine with that. As for deGrom's comments, it's a negotiating tactic. And, it's one that usually doesn't sit well w...

Re: Dad Jokes

My wife asked if she could have some peace and quiet while she tried to cook dinner.

So, I took the batteries out of all the smoke detectors.
