    Hibernation Plans?

    Kinda pumped - just completed 8,577 meters (random number - standby...) on my rower to have completed 200,000 meters since Thanksgiving in the Concept Holiday Challenge. A little bit of a physical carrot to keep me motivated/honest during this time of hibernation. The 2 programmed goals are 100,000m and 200,000m - my goal was always to hit 250K. The challenge ends on Xmas Eve - if I get ambitious enough, I'd love to move the first number again as well. 💪

    Hibernation Plans?

    Hello, Old Friends - Maybe this could be lumped into the mega-covid thread; however, I'm going side piece here - With the weather turning or will be soon enough to minimize/eliminate what I consider to be the outdoor freedom from this new way of living, what plans/routines/goals do you have for the winter months? I'm already feeling like my train is slipping off the tracks a bit with such. I'm an early morning workout person, and I'll run/walk as much as I can outside. However, the joy/pleasure of such is not the same when it's dark/cold. We got a rower for the basement, and I have a couple of kettlebells and resistance bands (#lean/mean gym) to utilize as well. Anyway, looking for some inspiration/motivation/ideas from the fine ST crowd. LMK what you've got planned or are doing.

    Owners would like to delay season until vaccine

    A bit disappointing. Vaccine or no vaccine, you cannot anticipate the revenue streams from fans in the building. If the other leagues are finding a way to get it done, MLB has to. Otherwise, they'll continue to slip in the relevancy-meter to any future fans and casuals.

    Great news. He's rewarded and a typically non-destination market retains a marquee player. How it should be.

    White Sox Online Charity Auction

    Appears you needed to be on the trigger when it started. I checked in a couple of hours into it, and the items I had some interest in seemed to be tapped. Cool situation though - everything seemed to be fairly affordable.

    Best Dessert

    I started this sipping a barrel aged which always has me fiending for the sweets. Chewy dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and brownies are my jam. I have this elaborate 'healthy' dessert meal I slam several nights a week. Hot oatmeal, chocolate and vanilla protein powder, square of dark chocolate, peanut or almond butter, and frozen berries or a banana. 🔥

    2020 Catch-All

    I've clamored to have a Concept2 for years, and I finally made the purchase late summer realizing the gym was not going to be an option any time soon. I've had it since September and am absolutely loving it. The resistance can be what you want on it, and it has a great daily workout suggestion you can have sent to you daily and is compatible with a couple of apps (ErgData, Krew) out there. I'm doing a holiday challenge that began on Thanksgiving and ends on Xmas Eve to row 200K, where Concept will donate so much for to your charity of choice for the meters accomplished. Great carrot to have during a tough time of year.

    The Broncos have no eligible QBs it seems for their game against New Orleans. That'll be something.

    2020 Catch-All

    Two things - 1) I like how the Christmas tree was posted after a question about toilet paper. Toilet paper to future toilet paper. 2) I'm kind of against social media for the most part. I do accept that many companies of interest (i.e. breweries ) have Instagram as their main source of communication as a website. I don't have an Instagram. I've been able to get by and check in on those public accounts of interest without having an account by just having those familiar URLs in my history and internet browsing cadence. However, today - it appears when you go to any public Instagram, it requires you to log-in or have an account. Boo to that.

    2020 NBA Offseason Thread

    I hear you. The Oladipo news is troubling. Including his college days, he's been a fan favorite for Indiana. I understand he'll never be paid star $$$ in Indy, but I'm not fully certain he's done enough by league standards to get it in the wallet yet. I'm White Sox and then Indiana/Indy everything else. However, being plugged into the Chicago sports scene, I'm excited and encouraged to see the direction the Bulls are headed.

    2020 NBA Offseason Thread

    I could be very wrong; however, I bet it's the LeBron approach to assuring he's maximizing the paycheck. I'm interested in seeing where Oladipo lands, with all the smoke about him wanting out of Indiana.
