  1. Good place to eat around the stadium??

    Co-sign on the comment above. The French Quarter is a great spot on game day. Gyro, burger, monte cristo, wings...all great. And now beer at 10am!

    Got another recipe recommendation here. I made this pumpkin black bean soup yesterday, and it was an absolutely delicious fall-time meal. I will be happily eating on the leftovers for a few days. I would also recommend subscribing to this channel.
  4. Awesome. I was a Lambda Chi during my tenure, but Sigma Chis were always cool in my book. Kappa Sigs...not as much. Cheers!
  5. This seems like as good of a thread as any to say that based on my alma mater’s sweeping success this season (4-1), I decided to wear my Brad Hoover jersey while watching the NE game to harvest some of the good vibes. I now have no choice but to rock the 45 until this train stops.

    I’ve been on a plant-based diet for almost a month now, and it’s simply great. Many thanks to you, Jeremy. Your posts, combined with a couple of documentaries (What The Health and Food, Inc. on Netflix), got me to make the change. I also recently read a book entitled “How Not to Die” that goes into tremendous detail about the benefits of a plant-based diet. I’m only a month shy of 30, but I have a history of heart disease/heart attacks/cancer/diabetes on both sides of my family. After a family member died recently of a heart attack at age 67, I decided it was time to make a change and take control. After only two weeks of changing my eating habits, my blood pressure (usually elevated) was at the perfect level, and I feel so much better. Low carb diets would help me lose weight quickly, but they always made me feel sluggish, and I never quite felt right about eating eggs and sausage every morning. I’m still losing weight, but it feels more “natural,” I suppose. And for me it’s been much easier to give up animal products than it was to follow a strict low-carb diet. If you’re on the fence, watch the documentaries I mentioned above. It took me a while to finally dive in, but I’m glad I did and there’s no going back. You may surprise yourself at how easily you can make the transition. You also don’t have to quit all animal products at once. I love milk, and I made the switch to almond milk a few months ago. I don’t crave the cow version at all anymore. Looking forward to checking out the blog, Jeremy.
  7. Anyone tried fuboTV?

    I see. Do you get your local FOX/CBS affiliate on Vue? If so, I suspect you won't have any issues with Panthers games. I also came across this article, which addresses the preseason issue specifically: http://cordcuttersnews.com/no-playstation-vue-not-blacking-nfl-games-explain/
  8. Anyone tried fuboTV?

    Where are you located, rayzor? I have PS Vue, too, and I was not able to watch the preseason games since they were on The CW in Charlotte (which Vue does not carry). I don't recall any issues watching games on FOX through Vue last year, though. CBS is also included if you're located in Charlotte.

    Because they make their babyfaces look like idiots and losers constantly. It's the same thing that happened to Bayley. What blew my mind is that they emphasized that Sasha, the babyface, has never defended her title successfully. And what did they do? Beat her clean in the middle, 1-2-3. Why would people cheer Sasha after that? Alexa said she was a loser and then went out there and proved it. Recall that Alexa said Bayley can't get "extreme" for their kendo stick match. What happened? She was right, Bayley looked like a dork, Alexa wins.
  10. My best Stress Reliever, what's yours?

    Enjoy your first slice of pie. I had a Pom growing up, and they really are great dogs if you can get over the barking. I've been doing a yoga program called DDP Yoga for the past few months, and it's a great stress reliever in the evenings. I also play guitar, so that's a great way to just forget about whatever else is going on and focus on the song I'm playing.
  11. Anyone have an analog music setup?

    Absolutely. I did this with Pink Floyd's "Animals" before it was officially re-released. I could've snagged one off of eBay, but the wait was worth the feeling I got when I thumbed through the stack at Repo and saw the flying pig album cover that had eluded me for so long.

    When I first started collecting, I definitely had the bug. I would go to the old Lunchbox location after work every payday and spend between $50-$100 on mostly new records for probably a year. Eventually I realized I had to reel it in. Now I go probably once every couple of months, and I try to keep every trip under $50. Slow and steady wins the race with vinyl collecting. The key to not going nuts in record stores for me is planning out exactly what I want to buy beforehand and not veering from the path. It's so easy to fall victim to the record store sirens that call out as you're heading down the aisle to the release you want. "I mean, what am I doing if I don't own the remastered OK Computer?" You just have to do your best to resist and add it to the list for the next trip. It also depends on whether you're wanting to collect new releases from current bands or classics. I have a healthy mix of both, but if you're more inclined to collect classic records then you can definitely save money on used ones. I would recommend Repo Records for used and Lunchbox for new. Amazon is another great option, especially price-wise, but the experience of shopping in the record store is a big part of the hobby for me.
  13. Hey can anyone comment on the importance of an unofficial depth chart? Thanks

    Agreed, either Bayley worked me or that was a legit shoulder injury. I haven't seen anything today about an injury, so hopefully that's a good sign.

    The third hour of RAW was awful. Once the main event went on at the top of the 10pm hour, the crowd almost completely checked out. I like Bayley and I think Nia has potential, but there was zero heat and crowd reaction in their match. They must really think that having killed Bayley for about two months straight would get her over as even more of an underdog. It's not working, and the crowd is getting more and more mild. Someone in attendance said there was even a dueling "Let's Go Bayley" / "Bayley Sucks" chant, although I didn't hear it on TV. Also, that Cass/Show match and angle...ugh. Heel Cass gets one over on face Big show, so face Enzo attacks him from behind like a coward and then gets killed (again). Afterward, Show lays out Cass and Show/Enzo walk out together. This makes zero sense and gets no one over. On a positive note, Heyman cut another tremendous promo that actually had something of substance behind it (Brock leaving WWE possibly), and Ambrose seems to be refreshed with this Seth Rollins angle. Dean has been doing some great promo work. Their presumed match with Sheamus/Cesaro at Summerslam should be good, and the crowd will love a Shield reunion/tag team champs run.
