How do you keep time to the music?


heh ... I don't, really. But it's kind of fun to be listening to Brahms 2, live, with the Twins game on in the background. Gives new meaning to cross-culture.

So I started driving 10 MPH


That was really underhanded. He thought he was betting against you. Not against Chief.

Pretty easily but if you struggle just get yourself a metrodome

I was driving with my Son home from somewhere. The Garmin said we'd get home at 2:45.


You couldn't find a strip club that stayed open later?

I was a big fan of Brahms 2 Live Crew. Had all their 8 tracks.

Why? You think they'll get 5 or more?


I made a Vegas bet before the season started. If the Twins win 68 then the bet is a tie and I get my money back If the Twins win more than 68 then I get my money back plus more. At this point, I would be glad to get just the 68, mainly because this would provide an excuse to go to Vegas,

Very good. I owe you that drink. Bear in mind Brian's anecdote above though; I just learned that a road trip to the AFL this year is suddenly pretty unlikely for me.

Bearing in mind Brian's anecdote, if you buy me a beer I'll drink it but then eventually give it back to you. It'll be a good lesson to learn.

I'm always impressed with the guys who set numbers--whether that be season totals, NFL games, NCAA BKB over/unders, or what have you. It's pretty rare for them to be way off.


I wonder how much the market affects these numbers. I think that Vegas adjusts the numbers if too many people are betting either the over or the under.

Yeah, undoubtedly. But they never seem to have to move the numbers much. If an NFL game moves a point that's a huge move.

I can think of two meanings to this: urine, or Antabuse. The good natured ribbing would end depending on which you meant.

Go as what? The Kool-Aid man?


Oh I'm glad you asked.

For Halloween I'm going to dress up as Kurt Cobain and go as Trevor Plouffe after getting rugburn in the O.Co bullpen

I don't know how you guys can live Pacific Time.

You guys do realize that you are making the world wait for you people to get to bed!

My recollection from seeing a game there last year is that he really crowds the plate too.
