Home Alone and Home Alone 2 get watched over and over at our house, and I love it.

Re: Work Jerks

My wife works at a place that works a 9/80 schedule. 9 hours per day M-T, 8 hours one Friday and off every other Friday. And these psychos work their off Fridays for no extra pay all the time. In my company you can’t bank any time from year to year. Probably my biggest complaint because there are ti...

At least he admits that they have tons of resources and isn’t crying poor or about some crazy tax/debt limitations... That’s one positive thing, right?

Re: Pick your Expansion team

Angels
Mets
Royals
Blue Jays
Rockies
Diamondbacks

Despite two titles being a Marlins fan would be awful.

Now if it was just based on the years I was following baseball (about 1994 on):
Angels
Astros
Royals
Mariners
Rockies
Diamondbacks

Re: Cubs Manager Search (Ross to be hired - Kaplan)

Is there any chance Ross was partially favored because they think he can help them retain via long term extension any of the current players (Bryant)?

Re: Theo Speak

My grandparents lived in Arizona my entire childhood until they passed while I was in college. We visited them every summer and often on X-Mas break. We went hiking all the time. My grandpa’s property backed up to a big stretch of state park and we’d go quartz hunting. He eventually had a whole gar...

Seriously? Dusty is still getting interviews?

That has to be an Andy MacPhail move. Dusty makes Joe Maddon look like a coaching savant by comparison.


Does Bryce like Dusty?

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I’m just going to go on the record and say that I think David Ross is a recipe for disaster. I’m very opposed. That's a weirdly strong stance. Why? I don’t think managers can make a large positive influence, but I do believe they can make a large negative influence. Ross could work out just fine, b...

My wife and I moved 6 times in 4.5 years, but we’ve been in this house 6+ years and added a dog and two kids and a whole lot of stuff since then.

I have skills, but those are not one set of skills I can advertise. I promised them I would get them cl...

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

I most remember Trachsel from my first game at Wrigley Field. My dad was teaching me how to keep score. After Brian Hunter lead off the game with a double my dad turned to me and said, “Well, there goes the no hitter.” Only hit the Astros got that day. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHN/CH...

I work from home and have the whole place to myself. 4 bathrooms. 2 kitchens.

Coming up on 5 years of this working situation. I could make a lot more money, but there is no way I’m ever giving this gig up.

Re: Game of Thrones

Dany has to know Jon is who he says he is, right? He survived dragon fire. I mean he told her and she has that proof you mentioned. I don’t think it’s a matter of her “not knowing.” It’s a matter of her accepting it/how she acts now that the NK is taken care of and she’s going for the throne and sh...

Dany has to know Jon is who he says he is, right? He survived dragon fire. This probably sounds a little absurd, but is it just that he didn't take a direct hit?
