A lot of salient points in a lot of posts. Also a lot of the expected "it's only as preseason game" excuses. How quickly those posters forgot the article Jeremy published just a few days ago: _________________________ "Last year around this time, the New England Patriots embarrassed the Carolina Panthers. On August 22, 2014, the Patriots took Carolina behind the woodshed in the third preseason game of the preseason and administered a 30-7 beating. But it was really never that close. The Patriots held the Panthers scoreless for 58 minutes and sent the Panthers home with an injured Cam Newton. This game ended up being an omen for the 2014 regular season. Many, myself included, brushed aside the 30-7 domination as preseason silliness. Turns out, Carolina was on the losing end of those types of blowouts early and often in the 2014 season. Meaningless? Not so much. The Panthers do not want to be embarrassed again this week. This week, it is personal. For the first two days of practice this week, scout teams have been used. Yes, they are game planning for Friday night. The Panthers are installing plays they feel will be successful against the Patriots. The players have spent time in the film room. Cam Newton and the starters will be playing into the third quarter. This is as close to the regular season it will ever get in August. This week we have our first real look at the 2015 Carolina Panthers. Whether the performance is outstanding or dismal, it will be difficult to brush aside the results as "only preseason." __________________________ From my perspective in BOA last night, the defense may be able to keep some games close, but the offense I saw last night looks far too similar to what I've been watching for a few seasons now... and it's simply not that good. "Anemic" and "lifeless" might be appropriate.
Both of these young people worked for my wife when they were younger. Their families are from the Martinsville area where my wife managed a country club for 13 years and both of the kids spent their summers working; her as a lifeguard and he in the pool grill/snack bar. My wife called me at work this morning, which she never does, and as soon as I heard her voicemail about needing to talk, I knew something was wrong. Both of the families are members of the country club and my wife knows them very well. My wife is terribly upset and I told her this morning I am okay with not having kids. This is not the phone call any parent wants or deserves.
First of all, the idiom is toe the line, not tow the line. The phrase derives from track-and-field events in which athletes are required to place a foot on a starting line and wait for the signal to go. Race officials used to shout “Toe the line!” where now they shout “On your marks!” Since entering the language, the idiom has developed to mean do what is expected or act according to someone else’s rules or expectations. Second, this is keeping in line with every other feeble attempt the Republicans have made over the past 8 years to get things back on their side. "Just say, 'No' to everything Obama tries to do." Voter ID laws, Benghazi, the list goes on and on over the past 8 years which clearly define the Pubs as a party of scared shitless, conservative, rich white guys.
The only evidence of a running game I've seen so far has been in the 3rd and 4th quarters of these pre-season games. And we all know the Carolina Panthers 3rd string offense is the best offense we've seen so far.
Recently spent a few days in Las Vegas, where his hotel is one of the most expensive and high-class places on the strip. But the state of Nevada won't give him a gaming license and his hotel is casino-less because of those bankruptcies. But he can run for President. Sure, makes perfect sense to me.
I have weekend passes but will not be attending thanks to the crowd and this course not being able to handle this many people. They were freebies and my wife worked at Sedgefield for several years early on in her club management career. I've played this course the day after the tourney and many, many times under normal country club conditions- it's like playing 2 different courses.
Commonly referred to as a Sales Administrator. Assigned to support and assist the sales force with product information, major contract quotes and sales samples. I'm guessing the business is contract-based and the sales force essentially has a territory and a list of companies/stores who sell the product. The sales people will call you when they need information, assistance, etc.
