You guys have cracked me up reading all the game thread posts. And I appreciate that.

God, but I hate to be the Debbie-Downer, I just can't get excited. Even with Milone pitching.

All I can think off is Robin Williams as I pour a round.

Sorry.

 

I think that we are all saddened by his passing.  Being here together trying to have fun may help.

Secede from the United States? Good luck trying

Yeah, the rest of the world hasn't had any luck, why should Texas?

I humbly stand corrected. :)

Just a little Minnesota pride for ya (and maybe a little regional elitism..)

Picked up on a subtle dig from direct TV about being on time for appointments. Reminded me of a bit kdwb did awhile back about sex on the job. Cable installers were the busiest by far. No wonder they say between 12 and 4.

Texas and Quebec can join forces. At the very least.. The combination of the accents would be hilarious.

Idiots will be idiots. Recognize it and don't be one yourself or engage in pointless dialog. Unless you are trying to entertain yourself.
