Sioux Falls always makes me think of soufflés. Is there a good French restaurant there? If not, someone should open one. If it were located at the foot of the falls it could be called "Sous Falls."

No there isn't...matter of fact there aren't any French restaurants here...except that the origin of the word restaurant is French.  So, I guess you could say there are a whole bunch of French restaurants here...and everywhere.  Minerva's is probably the best in Sioux Falls, but there are a number of good eateries here.

I'm insulted that you don't consider Hamms a beer. It's the best of the cheap beers. For shame.

I loved the beer part! It was funny. And it made fun of beer snobs too. All around perfect joke, imo.

You just got signed up for game thread duty. You can thank me later. Or curse me. Either way works. (I have no power to do such a thing but you show promise, IE, you've a pulse and a keyboard)

I do have a keyboard. Pulse has been optional lately.

Probably 2 moderators. The Dakotas are practically Canada anyways.


If we are rolling both Dakotas and Canada into one, four.

I don't know if she's still on the air, but there was a radio personality in the Twin Cities who went by the name of Sue Falls.

I have a niece named Shy Ann.

That's sort of like being the "fastest slow runner." 

 

Not exactly a badge of honor.

I have eaten at Minerva's. Good food. 

I heard the other place closed.

I noticed it is saying that the Twins game is being broadcasted on ESPNRM. Never heard of that. What is it?

Sitting Bull seemed to agree, fine with me.

 

I was honored with a Dakota Name: "Wakpa a aaka e paya"

 

It means "River Bull Crap"

I didn't insult Hamm's

 

It was the late Joe McCarthy that did.

In all seriousness. You would be fantastic at doing an opener at some time. You should give it a try.

And if we are doing that. My medical bills are way too high.

I should toss you in the penalty box for that one. You want to scare off talent by telling him that we're serious?

I cultivated that necessity over 16 thousand posts. 

 

I have to declare when I am actually serious or it will be assumed I'm not.  

 

Seriousness has probably been applied to around 40 Posts of mine over the years.

Seriously?

 

I have to admit, once in a while I make a mistake and get serious. Usually, though, I get over it.

btw, the picture with the thread?

 

I've been growing a "beard" for almost two weeks now. It would end up looking like those if I kept going. I think I'll be shaving it off over the weekend. OTOH, I will be visiting my mom next week, and she hates when I don't shave, so it's tempting to keep it.
