Re: Sparty Thread

I agree with the sentiment, Tempe, but my eyes are seeing a bias from the zebras. Maybe it the blue and white glasses, but it is hard to overcome that if I am correct.

Re: Sparty Thread

I am not usually a conspiracy theorist, but after watching OSU get a gift first down, and some of the calls in this game, I am seriously considering dropping a bit of cash on Michigan against Wisky. It seems the best teams are playing against a stacked deck.

Re: Sparty Thread

And MSU gets a TD without crossing the goal line. FFS this only happens in the BIG.

Re: Sparty Thread

MSU Drive continues on a fandom holding. Suffice it to say I am not a fan of BIG officials.

Re: Other College Football Games

Is anyone watching Minn at OSU? The Golden Gophers are hanging tough early in the 2nd. OSU got a gift spot on 4th down and the next play went for 6. But, so far at least, Minny is hanging tough and just took the lead.

Re: Sparty Thread

It is game day and I have my power back. I think that’s a good sign. What’s more, I was scrolling around to see who else is on today and saw that BTN pregame show is featuring Coach Franklin. That’s a good enough excuse to not watch ESPN at 10!

Re: Florence

The center of Michael passed just south of us last night and took out a transformer so our power has been out since midnight. Roughly half a million without power in the region so my hope is they get it back on before tomorrow afternoon...

Re: Florence

Of course, Florida has much more coastline as well, which is also a factor. I mean, no hurrican is going to slam in to Nebraska, right? My point is that we are seeing them earlier and later in the season and storms of the century are occurring every year or so. Some of that may be media hype but som...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Our 401k’s are tied to stocks and bonds, I think.

Some average joes might dabble a little more with the market but not like the top percentage of folks. A day like today might cost me a hundred bucks while others lose massive money. In reality, until you go to cash out it is mostly Monopoly money.

Re: Florence

Hurricanes are a risk for people on the coast, everyone knows this. That's what they pay very high insurance. Now, Michael was a thunderstorm a week ago. The models predicted growth based on the temperature of the water in the gulf. Except that the temps they were using were wrong as the actual temp...
