Topics I've Started

Is it me or is this the most uninteresting mid-term

17 October 2014 - 11:03 AM

Really didn't care about politics until I got to college. But mid-terms usually have been interesting politically.

'94 - the Anti-Clinton / Newt-Contract with America wave

'98 - All about Clinton-Lewinsky / impeachment.

'02 - Post 9-11. R & D's were still playing nice, IIRC.

'06 - Bush, Iraq backlash.

'10 - Obamacare backlash, rise of the Tea Party

'14 - ??? A few contested national races, but neither party seems to be campaigning with enthusiasm. I live in Texas and there are ZERO campaign signs out. There were more out during primaries. A few TV and radio ads, but nothing at the normal campaign intersections.


Is is like this in Charlotte?

Any anime garage kit builders/modelers on the huddle...

Any helpful hints for building/painting. Links, books?


I've pre-ordered some garage kits from Japan. The last time I attempted to build any models was about 17 years ago. Some cheap-o Gundam &  Ultraman kits. My glue and paint skills were pretty meh. But I'd like to think I've learned to have more patience since then. 


I think this C&H strip details my history perfectly.





Week 1 Coaching reviews?

09 September 2014 - 03:21 PM

Haven't seen much on the coaching from week 1.

Overall how did you think Ron created/managed the game plan?


I'd grade him a A-. But I did have some minor qualms:

  • Settling for a FG at the end of the 1st half. 10 seconds is plenty of time to run 1 EZ play when you have a timeout in your pocket.
  • Didn't care for the coaches challenge. Thought the timeout was more important than the 5 yard completion by TB.

Except for the very last drive where we kicked a FG to go up 6, were there any Riverboat opportunities? Would he have gone for it if Cam were healthy? On TV it looked like 4th and 1, but the NFL gamebook has it as 4th and 2.

4-2-TB 15 (:28) (Field Goal formation) G.Gano 33 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Jansen, Holder-B.Nortman.


Except the for gameday thread, I don't see anyone calling for Schula's head. I'll mark that as a win for Schula.

Are there other links besides the Amazon link in Zod's sig?

I forget to use my cashback link on overstuffedwallet all the time so I'll try to remember to use the Amazon link Zod provided. Are there other support links?
