    Posted this in the Saturday thread as I didn't know there was one dedicated to his situation already...
     
    Definitely sucks for Hill...  I always have extra incentive to pull for underdog guys, and he had that going for him.  I hope it's not as bad as it appeared to be.
    And while I'm not losing my poo, this is why I wanted to do more at WR in terms of adding speed...  If we stacked it like we do other positions, then I wouldn't be as concerned.  Even our FO was selling the idea of Hill as our potential speed/size combo guy we were looking to add, and with this injury, it's not looking good.  I still hope Byrd pans out but, I was hoping Hill would beat the odds and prove a lot of people wrong (including myself to a degree).

    Yeah,  I call it for Oher...  He never lost him and stayed engaged the entire time.  At the very least, on a real play with Cam back there, it gives Cam time to step up or get rid of the ball versus with Bell, he would've been picking himself up off the ground by the end of this play. 
    What stood out to me for some reason though, is man, Oher looks pretty small in that video...  Looks much trimmer than I would've expected.

    Been pretty underwhelming so far...  Looks like an all-star game without the all-stars being played at a pedestrian tempo.  These guys are completely walking/jogging up and down the floor, no defense, etc.  It's understandable though...  It's an exhibition.  But it feels like it was cobbled together...  Team Africa doesn't even have a true point.  Batum was actually just running point.  Additionally, they couldn't find enough guys that fit the criteria to be on team Africa, so they have guys like Mbah A Moute and Nazr Mohammed (who are currently FAs without a team) wearing their former team's Jersey. 
     
    All that being said...   A very cool moment here in the second quarter - completely previously unannounced, Dikembe and Hakeem checked in and The Dream even scored on Vucevic.

    Which brings me back to my point from earlier in the thread...   I think he wants to play, just on his terms.  I think a huge part of it is that he wants to play on the West coast...   Regardless, he still is a crybaby bitch.  Man up...   You're getting paid to play a game, regardless of where.  If you can't or won't do it, speak up and say so instead of hiding behind some joke of an old excuse that negatively affects so many more people.

    If I had one wish, I would ask for a time machine...   So I had unlimited chances at growing up to be Cam Newton.

    What a worthless crybaby bitch...   Honestly, i never really got excited about the waiver claim because I've always thought he was a sensitive bitch whose heart wasn't in the game...   And if that's the case, then he should've retired after he left the Dolphins. 
     
    That whole Dolphins deal was a farce, imo...   He told a story hat would earn public sympathy and wouldn't make him look like a douchey quitter.  
     
    Honestly, i wasn't excited about it either because it also seemed to me like he wasn't all that excited that we claimed him.  I also suspect part of the Dolphins fiasco was that he was homesick and wanted to go back to the west coast.  I think he was unhappy about the Niners waiving him and in his typical pussified ways, he debates, and then St the last minute quits.   I hope his career is over.

    That's what he gets for leaving his bong in Stephen Hill's car.  Jackass.

  11. Proudiddy added a post in a topic A dead man, 1,200 guns, and a mystery...   

    Good find, Bronn...   No doubt crazy and yet, unbelievably intriguing.
    How would a normal human being completely fly under the radar like that for the entire duration of their life?  What takes away any credibility is that if he was any type of secret agent (I'm gonna ignore the alien part lol), then if he died, it never would've became publicized.
    BUT, that's what makes it so intriguing...  That points to him being a regular dude that somehow acquired all of those things -  guns, ammo, real estate, multiple cars including the underwater SUV, LOL.  Then, as you pointed out, reports now say he has no family, no income, etc.  If he was just a schizo, surely, he would've had some of those things going for him to trace his background...  Just really crazy... 
     
    I'm guessing he was indeed suffering from mental illness...   But, maybe was living off of an inheritance, which is why he had no income, and perhaps had changed his name at some point and/or all of his family died, which is why it seems he has no traceable past.   Interesting to say the least...

    Weird that the article states he was being signed to the "training camp roster," but the Hornets Facebook account just posted a pic of him signing his contract like they have with all of our official FA signings.  Why would we do that for a "training camp roster" guy?

    We should steal him from them now that Martin bailed.

    Any GREAT gyms/health clubs (including basketball) in the Huntersville/Charlotte area?
    Huddlers, 
    I'd appreciate any feedback here...  My wife and I are looking at moving by the end of the year.  We have a new child on the way, so we're kind of debating now whether to do the move before or after he is born, but I have a feeling it will most likely be after (around the holidays).
    That being said, i have long hoped to move to Charlotte...  Ever since I was a kid, I just loved the city.  We are specifically looking at moving into one of the suburb areas right outside of Charlotte...   We have some friends that moved to Huntersville a few years ago and they love it, so right now that's where we are looking.  In regards to getting a lot of value for your money, considering the location to Charlotte, I think the market in Huntersville is almost unbeatable locally.  And again, I have always loved the city on my visits, I would love having the option of being a STH for our Panthers and Hornets and bringing my children up in that environment and having them grow up with that experience.  As an added plus, I would get to annoy so many of my fellow Huddlers in person on a regular basis.
     
    Now, here's where you will be scratching your head lol...  As lame as it sounds, I have been searching for years for a gym/health club that was open earlier and later than others (preferrably 24 hours), and has a basketball gym in addition to the gym regulars (weights, cardio, pool, etc.).  Recently, I finally found one and I love it.  It's the national chain, Life Time Fitness.  It is expensive, but it is everything I have been looking for my entire adult life.  There are 4-5 locations around Raleigh.  The location I've been using is open everyday from 4am to 12am, and if that doesn't suit my needs, I can just go to a different location that is open 24 hours that is about the same distance from me.  It's crazy...   I have access to basketball, pool, sauna, hot tub, pools, weights, machines, cardio 24 hours a day.   I know to some that sounds ridiculous, but I go through cycles off and on of being up all night, so I would rather be in the gym than on the Playstation or watching TV at 1am.  I definitely don't want to lose this newly discovered, long sought out luxury, but obviously that's not the end all, be all of our decision on where to move.  But man, i really love this gym...  
    Now, I've searched the Charlotte area, and they do have two Life Time's, but they are bronze level clubs.  Bronze is the lowest level club that life time has, and as such, they are typically much smaller and their hours are like every other gym...   Which sucks.   They close really early, especially on weekends.  My home location is platinum, the highest in NC.  I did a cursory search for other non-national chains in the Charlotte area, but really didn't find anything.  From what I've gathered, a great deal of my friends that live around Charlotte just use something like the YMCA during the day...   But, another thing I love about my gym is that it isn't overcrowded like the Y's tend to be.  With basketball as an example, there are enough people to run full games on at least one court without a wait, but you can work on individual stuff on the other courts while you have next.  My experience with the Y is they are constantly packed and that just blows.
    SO, sorry to blabber on there, but I'm hoping you all could give me some insight on this...  I always look at schools and crime, first and foremost, so that is already considered.  As I said,  I know a gym is not the ultimate factor in deciding where to move, but it feels like a big one for me right now...
