#3344240 Official NFL Draft Round 1 Thread - General Chatter

Posted by PanthersBigD on 30 April 2015 - 10:01 PM

Shaq is a great pick. He can be groomed to be an LB or a Safety and he'll be groomed by the best. Also gives us another legit returner. Very excited w this pick.


#3340432 Bears shopping TE Martellus Bennett

Gettleman ever signing a guy who's holding out with TWO years left on his current contract would definitely fit the definition of 'dream.'




#3340342 Favorite restaurant in and around Charlotte

If she likes Italian, Vivace at Midtown or Aria uptown are both really nice choices. 




#3336548 Whisky River

Posted by PanthersBigD on 27 April 2015 - 03:37 PM

Piggy backing off of SCP...


Can someone explain Whisky river to me? It's a country bar that no country fans go to that plays top 40 and hip hop?

That a successful business model?

 

Not really: http://jacksonville....s-jacksonvilles

 

 

Looks like BMG runs them, so it's basically a newer version of BAR Charlotte. It's the bug zapper that all the rednecks from surrounding towns are drawn to when they come in for a night in the big city. 




#3333828 The Middle Aged White Guy

Sounds like me, except we pay our sitter 10 an hour.

Also, I prefer reef flip flops. Controversial I know, but they have a bottle opener on the bottom of them in case of an emergency.


That sounds sanitary. Come on, Jeremy, you've been married way too long to not be using your wedding band as a bottle opener. Get on my level.

I must say, I appreciate and share your dedication to Palmetto Dip.


#3331571 Iron Man walks out of interview....

Posted by PanthersBigD on 23 April 2015 - 09:20 AM

Meh I'm going to disagree. These junkets are strictly for promoting movies and everyone involved knows it.

 

 

If the interviewer wants to bring up controversial topics, score an interview on your own dime.

 

I agree. Everyone knows this guy can't secure a Diane Sawyer/Barbara Walters type of interview with these huge celebrities, so he's trying to pull one off during what's basically a movie plug.

 

In my opinion that's like going to a Michael Jordan autograph signing and trying to pester him into playing a game of one on one with you. 




#3328931 Guy crosses a line on homosexuality

Posted by PanthersBigD on 21 April 2015 - 04:32 PM

that is incorrect, I have been married once and nothing is stopping anyone else of legal age from being married legally the same way I  was married. funny how a group of people who emphasize "same" do not really understand the concept fully.

 

That's true. You still don't seem to grasp the definition of 'same.' 




#3328903 Guy crosses a line on homosexuality

Posted by PanthersBigD on 21 April 2015 - 04:04 PM

yes exactly, you can't.

 

You've been legally married, TWICE according to your own posts. Yet there are citizens of our country that can't get married legally because of antiquated laws based on antiquated religious beliefs. 




#3328848 Guilty Pleasure drinks

Posted by PanthersBigD on 21 April 2015 - 03:09 PM

I enjoy making my own mojitos at home. I have a planter full of mint growing on my patio that gets used up every spring/summer.

 

I'll drink any fruity/girly drink if it tastes good. I have no shame when it comes to alcohol. 




#3328844 Charlotte Area Breweries

Posted by PanthersBigD on 21 April 2015 - 03:06 PM

I like Birdsong the best as well. It's got a good selection of beers and a great atmosphere. And you can stumble back and forth between Birdsong and NoDa very easily. 




#3328515 Guy crosses a line on homosexuality

Posted by PanthersBigD on 21 April 2015 - 09:22 AM

you support what you believe , religious or not, and that support drives legislation. I will not support something I think is wrong no matter what my basis for that belief.
 

 

Then what you are doing is no different from those who support Sharia law. 




#3327880 Surprised no one is talking about it....

Posted by PanthersBigD on 20 April 2015 - 03:14 PM

My wife and I spent two weeks in Italy back in November of last year. We spent time in several major cities including Rome. There were a huge number of African and Indian immigrants that were out selling those selfie-sticks, roses, bracelets, etc. They were very pushy/desperate, spoke very little English/Italian and I commented to my wife numerous times that I figured they were slave labor, because someone was supplying all of the merchandise they were hocking, and there's no way they were sharing much of the profit. It was really sad actually. 




#3322215 Anyone live in Atlanta?

Posted by PanthersBigD on 15 April 2015 - 08:24 AM

Atlanta is great! Congrats on the job. Everything Hotsauce said is true. Atlanta was the largest market for the first company I worked for out of school. I have a lot of great memories of that time. It's a great place for young professionals. Lots of great hiking, whitewater, camping within 2 hrs of town as well. You're going to have a blast. 




#3321066 Randy Gregory thinks New Orleans is lame

Posted by PanthersBigD on 14 April 2015 - 08:56 AM

He's got a good sense of humor, and he trolls pretty subtly which I can appreciate.

 

And everyone knows New Orleans is fun. It's their football team that sucks.
