I believe the preferred nomenclature is sobriety challenged.


I prefer drunks or boozehounds


i definitely think of boozehounds as distinct from winos. winos are saaaaaad and have serious problems. boozehounds just really enjoy booze (and may well be on track to become winos, but they aren't there yet).


yeah, when i think of a wino, i think of a homeless guy drinking md 20/20 or something

I believe Theo said it's going to be ready/done a few days before the Home opener on 670 last week. Sounded like they were under the gun on finishing it and also like the FO was holding out a surprise or 2 for the players when they finally see the finished product.

Not much news, but the marquee will be back up in 10 days, according to Crane.

Holy moly, if there was a curse it was a curse of a substandard environment in which to compete. Wow, aside from the computers, those pictures look like they were taken in the 1970s.
