  1. Not concerned in the slightest with Mitch. Training camp discussion filler. Let's see what happens during the regular season.

    Eh, she was definitely more reliable in that she didn't skip work anymore and didn't send me Facebook messages as a means of work communication. Lol. But she wasn't a very good worker.

    Job Thread

    Haha. Good stuff. Some people do strange things. I once had an intern who did not show up to work on the Friday of her 1st week. Around 11am, I was starting to get concerned. No one at the company knew where she was. About an hour later, her hiring manager gets her on the phone - she's fine. It turns out she sent me a Facebook message at like 7:30am that morning and said she wasn't going to come into work because I hadn't assigned her any work... what?? Sure enough, I log into Facebook (which I never check) and I have a friend request from this girl, along with that message saying she won't be coming in to work. I was floored. Keep in mind she has a company laptop and email, as well as access to my phone # in the company directory. But nah, she decided Facebook was the proper way to contact me. We had a good discussion the next Monday about work etiquette and expectations.

    Vaughn to A+, Madrigal to AAA

    Excellent. I was planning to go watch the Knights this weekend since they're playing outside of Atlanta. Now I really need to make it happen with Madrigal getting called up.

    2018 Travel Thread

    That's a cool trip idea. Compared to the others, I can understand why Luxembourg would seem the least exciting. That said, I liked it when I went. It was in July, so the weather was nice, warm, sunny. That always helps. I'm glad I went, but I never felt the need to go back even though it was about 2 hours from where I lived. Also, this would be unrelated to the idea of your trip... but if you have any interest in WWII, or Band of Brothers, Bastogne is very close to Luxembourg. It's maybe a 45 minute drive.

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    Yep, there seems to be a higher-than-normal contingent of Sox fans in Nashville (over the age of 30 anyway) due to that old affiliation we had. The Braves dominate the south, but I know some guys who are Sox fans because they grew up going to those minor league games and saw future White Sox players all the time.

    Goodbye Soxtalk

    Same. I've been thinking about moving to Nashville for years. If I ever leave Atlanta, Nashville (along with Austin) is at the top of my list.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Well said. The stars aligned for this to be our one chance get that type of free agent. The typical big money teams (Red Sox, Yankees, Cubs, Dodgers) weren't in on it, and we still couldn't get it done. I'm disgusted and embarrassed to be a Sox fan.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    So it ended up being the same amount of years and dollars that has been expected for like a year... Glad we wasted an entire off-season to get to that point. And what's the point of having tons of payroll flexibility if we aren't going to spend it? If we won't pay for Machado now, we will never get a big time free agent with the current ownership group.

    Damn. What a joke.
  11. Good stuff. Always cool when y'all get the players to guest-write.

    Official 2018-19 NFL Thread

    Absolutely. And I feel this way even more now that I'm living in Europe. Games start at 7pm here. So it's like Sunday Night Football every week. I struggled the first 2 weeks of the year. The next day at work was awful. I was going to bed at 6am, sleeping for 2 hours, and then going into work.

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    Yep, it was Bonnaroo. Interesting to hear that his normal tour shows can be hit or miss. I sort of understand the festival mishap. Some artists try a little less when in the festival setting. But I wouldn't expect that as much when you're paying full price for his show specifically. Speaking of Kendrick, I've heard the same with him. I saw him play and he was fantastic. But I've heard people who weren't impressed with his show. Generally, I think rap is tougher to perform in a live setting.

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    I'm a bit envious that Kanye is in your best performances. He's among my worst. Dude stopped performing and talked for over 20 minutes about a bunch of nonsense and got boo'd. He chanted "Fuck the press. Write what you want" for probably 3 minutes straight at one point. Just over and over. Half the venue was gone less than an hour into the set, including myself, because he wouldn't perform. But I feel like that's so Kanye. He just does whatever he wants. Fortunately, this was at a music festival, so we just went to get good spots up front for a late night show.

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    First concert was The Wallflowers. For the life of me, I cannot remember my first album. DMB's Under the Table & Dreaming, if not my 1st album, was one of my first, so I'll go with that. I had a lot more mixtapes and/or burned CDs once those came about. I preferred making my own so I could choose what I wanted.
