    Annual "Who's Working today/Holiday" Thread 2016!&#3

    Working just a couple hours today by choice. It's a company holiday, but I'm trying to stay on top of a few things since I'm on vacation next week.

    It's that time of year

    Atlanta is certainly worth watching. The trans-racial episode was probably my favorite - I couldn't stop laughing. But also, as someone who has lived in Atlanta for 6 years, the show captures it pretty well. When they talk about getting JR Crickets wings ("swimmin") in the 2nd episode, I about lost my s***. I get Crickets every Sunday for football, and I always get them hot and lemony pepper swimmin'. Hard to understand unless you have lived here.

    QUOTE (iamshack @ Dec 22, 2016 -> 06:08 PM) I would have been tempted to drive it! Haha, I seriously considered it. In the end, I decided the 14 hour drive plus the fact that I had already bought a plane ticket wasn't worth driving.

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Dec 23, 2016 -> 07:50 AM) I think redshirt players should be allowed to play. Absolutely. It would be a great idea to allow redshirt players the chance to play without losing eligibility.

    I'm all about NFL-bound players sitting out meaningless exhibition games. I would hate to see them get hurt. But also, from a selfish standpoint, unless my team is playing in the Playoff, I'd rather see what the young guys can do. It would be a good chance to see what next year's players are looking like.

    Thanks guys. The only downside has been that I haven't been able to really use it. I flew home for Christmas the day after I bought it. Haha.

    QUOTE (dasox24 @ Dec 12, 2016 -> 02:09 PM) Thanks. Just checked that out. Looks like it's still about $4,000 lower than the average price people in my area have been paying for the same truck. Guessing this is truly a pretty good deal. Pulled the trigger on this last Friday. Couldn't be happier with it so far. Love it.

    Absolutely phenomenal stuff. Great job, Brian, and the rest of the crew.

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Dec 12, 2016 -> 02:13 PM) I am okay with this, but a little concerned too. Seems so ass backwards to be doing this now, especially because I generally like Ryan Pace and think he's done a good job adding talent to this team. When I look at our most recent draft, I smile a lot (Floyd / Whitehair / Howard all look like players to me). Agreed. Some weird rumors going on around the Bears right now. I still don't know where or why the Fangio rumors came from last week, but getting rid of him would be a horrendous idea. He's one of the few good things we have going for us. The only way Fangio should leave Chicago is if he doesn't want to stay.

    QUOTE (NorthSideSox72 @ Dec 12, 2016 -> 01:25 PM) "invoice" price is a funny thing. I think you might be better using TrueCar data, and see how much of an outlier that price really is. Thanks. Just checked that out. Looks like it's still about $4,000 lower than the average price people in my area have been paying for the same truck. Guessing this is truly a pretty good deal.

    I only have 1 car buying experience, and it was for a used car at Carmax (it was great experience, fwiw). I've always been a proponent of buying a used car, but I'm looking at new 2016 F-150's because there seem to be some very good deals on 2016's with the 2017 models coming out and it being year-end. There's one in particular I'm looking at, and it's list price is $9,000 less than what KBB lists the invoice price as. 1) How is that possible? 2) I plan to try to talk them down from the current list-price, but should I expect any movement when it's already that much lower than invoice? Something seems wrong here. Maybe I'm missing something. No way the dealer is just losing money on this truck, right?

    Bought my early bird ticket to Bonnaroo. I think that counts... Saved a decent amount.

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ Nov 18, 2016 -> 06:34 AM) Gotta feel for Luke Kuechly. Shocked noone mentioned it here yet. That was sad and scary to see him cry like that with his concussion history. That was rough to watch. They were zoomed in on his face for far too long. I don't want to see that. Give the guy some respect. I'm really hoping he'll be fine. He's one of my favorite players to watch.
  15. That was a fun read. Some blasts from the past on that 3B list. Welcome, Julie! Nice work.

    2016-2017 NBA Thread

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Nov 11, 2016 -> 10:53 AM) Butler played fantastic down the stretch. I also liked the aggression that Lopez and Rondo played with. Offense looked much better, that said, defensively, we need to play a lot more consistent. That wasn't exactly a dynamic Miami offense they were going against. Nice to get the road win on a back to back. I'm hoping this extended road trip to come helps allow these guys to gel. I get the feeling we will see Gar/Pax pull a decent size trade at some point this year (with the long-term in mind). My presumption is we will see the Bulls move Niko (not sure how much value he has given his pending free agency). Mirotic is frustrating as hell. I went to the game against the Hawks on Wednesday, and every time he was on the court, bad things happened.

    That was fun. I don't get to see many Bulls games, so it was nice starting off the year on national TV.

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Oct 20, 2016 -> 11:11 PM) Did Floyd get hurt again late in the game? It's possible. There was a run play where he tried to pivot and then immediately just stopped moving. He kind of hopped around on his leg a bit. It felt like a knee tear when I saw it in real time, but he stayed in, so I hoped it was just a tweak. And frankly, it's possible he got hurt later on and it had nothing to do with the play I saw.

    Yeah, I had no idea Costco got into the car business. Sounds like a pretty good deal from the consumer side. I'll definitely check it out.

    QUOTE (Brian @ Oct 8, 2016 -> 05:52 PM) Wow Tennessee. What a turn of events I couldn't have experienced a wider range of emotions during the last few minutes of that game. I was 100% certain we were going to win after that dude missed the chip shot FG. It's a damn shame. We committed 7 turnovers and still took a Top 10 team to 2 OTs. Unfortunately for Tennessee, no team has angered the injury gods more. Half our starters and even more backups are out. I don't know how much longer they can keep this up when we're down to guys who had never previously seen the field this year until the A&M game. Oh well, on to Bama.

    QUOTE (JenksIsMyHero @ Oct 10, 2016 -> 08:59 AM) What a perfect, perfect Bears game. Competed, showed some things offensively (even against an atrocious defense), Howard and that WR whose name escapes me continue to show promise, and they lost! Also, that performance by Hoyer all but assures that Cutler has played his last game for the Bears right? Why would they go back to him? Couldn't agree more. Perfect scenario. I want to see the young guys contribute and develop while still losing games. Better for the team's future.

    Jesus. We can't catch a break with injuries this year. No pun intended. There were a few key players that we couldn't afford to get injured due to developmental reasons and White was one of them.

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Sep 29, 2016 -> 08:06 AM) No, this mess is on Emery and Angelo more than Pace. Biggs was saying this morning that the only players from the Emery drafting era that could be on the team next season are Leno, Jeffrey and Long. You cant judge Pace's drafts yet This. I've been reading this thread over the past few days and am in disbelief that people actually think Pace and Fox are the problem. This is Year 2. They inherited a horrific roster devoid of talent. Now, I do have a problem with Pace's selection (and trading up at that) of Floyd in the 1st round. I thought it was a horrible pick. But I'm rooting for the kid because we desperately need him to pan out.

    TV and Netflix Thread

    I decided to watch Limitless based on some suggestions earlier in this thread. I really liked it, but I just finished the 1st season and now I'm disappointed to find out it was not renewed for a 2nd season. Though in a way, it's fine because they pretty much wrapped up the 1st season story. No major cliffhangers.
