SIOS Goes To Guatemala

16 March 2014 - 06:59 PM



As suggested by Arsen, I'll make this into its own thread.


Basically, me and two friends decided to go a little nontraditional for Spring Break and hop on a plane down to Guatemala. None of us knew a lick of Spanish, but luckily one of their fathers had a contact down there who picked us up at the airport and drove us to this town in the mountains called Cuilapa.


We stayed at what was likely the nicest place in the area, as it had running water and WiFi in the lobby. About 20 minutes outside of Cuilapa in a little community called Los Chilitos, there was an American based organization paying some local masons to build a school. We hitched a ride out to Los Chilitos each day to help the builders construct the school.


Along the way, we met a lot of amazing people, especially the children of the village. I came to love the place and the kids in just a week, which is ridiculous considering I've always been pretty annoyed by kids. It's amazing how the language barrier disappears with young kids, because all they wanna do is play around and be happy.


I wanna plan a return trip for early summer, mainly because I already miss the location and the kids. Just playing around with them is the happiest I've been and most fun I've had in ages. I think it might've changed my early career outlook and instead of jumping into working for the government right out of school, I might wanna seek out work in an NGO or the Peace Corps or something beforehand.


I'm just gonna mass upload all of the pictures into a big gallery, and I definitely think they're worth the look, if for nothing else than for the ridiculously cute kids and the amazing scenery.



Wyoming WR Robert Herron

16 February 2014 - 08:30 PM

One of my personal favorite wideouts in the draft. If we double-dip at WR, which I think we should, Herron could be an interesting late rounder to steal. Although I think his stock is slowly on the rise.


Reminds me a lot of Steve, moreso than a lot of these other guys people are trying to compare Steve to. He has good but not great hands, but he's aggressive, has an endless motor, is ridiculously speedy, will go and grab balls over the middle, and is great in the open field. Only 5'9 though.



"Klondike" - New Discovery Miniseries

21 January 2014 - 05:16 PM

Did anyone catch the premeir last night?


I was extremely impressed by what they did with the show. It's Discovery's first miniseries, and it was absolutely fantastic in its debut episode.


They're two hours long, and I believe it's only a 3 part miniseries. If I were you guys, I'd jump on the first segment before tonight's episode comes on at 9.


It stars Richard Madden (Robb Stark in GOT) amonsgt a couple of other faces that you've undoubtedly seem before.



Best Popular Radio Song of the Past 10 Years?

30 December 2013 - 03:12 PM


This song Pompeii by Bastille is brilliant. It got me thinking that it might just be the best top 40 type song in at least 10 years or so.


Only a few off the top of my head can rival it, but it's just so complete and smart.


And here's the acoustic version of it because acoustic versions generally make any good song even more amazing.



What say you, Huddle? Any other great radio songs that come to mind in the 2000's era?

Smitty Got A Call Reversed Yesterday...?

16 December 2013 - 11:53 AM

I'm sure you all noticed that the illegal formation call was reversed after they had already announced the penalty. I noticed Steve walked over and chatted them up for maybe a minute before they decided to reverse the penalty.

Did they say anything about that on the broadcast? Did Steve Smith teach the refs "the rules and regulations" of the game?
