Somehow I thought you might say that.

Re: 2017-18 baseball off season

I do, too. I really like the guy. Athletically, he's the whole package, he's a good clubhouse leader and a good person to boot. I will miss seeing him in the black and gold.

Re: 2017 NFL Football Season

I did not realize that the Rooney family did not own the Steelers outright but it turns out they do not. There are a number of minority equity holders in the team. I have no idea how many of these there are or how much they own, but it seems to be a minority share. The reason this came up is some o...

Re: 2017-18 baseball off season

I get trading McCutchen but it seems they just about gave him away. I guess the market for him was really soft. The Pirates received prospects in exchange for McCutcheon who becomes a free agent after the coming season. At 31, McCutcheon could possibly return to the form that led the Pirates out of...

Re: 2017-18 baseball off season

Pirates trade Cole to the Astros. Sorry Pirates fans, but that's your season right there. From what I read, the prospects they got back aren't all that. Cole tanked in all significant metrics last season, and it wasn't for a lack of support. Having said that, watch him register a monster comeback s...

Re: Other College Football Games

I’ll aleays remember his call of Blackledge to Garrity against UGA in the national title game. His voice was college football when I was growing up. No doubt, it was. I enjoyed his singularly unique pronunciations and loved how he would say OOOOO-JAYYYYYY McDuffie. How I miss that era of.college fo...

Re: Politics

Yes, Norway just moved ahead of Tahiti on my expats list. Attended a wedding where the maid of honor was Norwegian....blond, beautiful and looked fabulous in a bikini. Yes, there was swimming involved....don't ask. Just take my word for it that she was stunning. Unfortunately, she was also twenty-so...

Re: Politics

I decided that I was better off refinancing out of it given the tax implications. I'd definitely consider that if I had many years left on my primary mortgage, but I only have 8 months. I think they should revise the tax bill to (1) eliminate the mortgage interest deduction, (2) restore the home eq...

Re: Politics

But, in fairness, the cost of interest on the home equity loan keeps going up and up now and, from a cashflow perspective, I'm better off. My home equity loan has gone from 3% to 4% in the 15 years I've had it. My wife keeps mentioning paying it off, but the math doesn't make any sense I could pay ...

Re: Other College Football Games

So we ended up 8th in the AP poll. I think that's a slot or two light - thinking we could beat UCF and have a slightly better than even chance at Wisky. The post-game talking heads last night had one thing right - Georgia has no reason to cry this year looking at their '18 and prospective '19 recru...
