  1. After seeing how the OTs got taken, the Bears had to make their move at 10.

    Before you remodel/renovate, make sure the infra are good in the house (electrical, plumbing, structural, etc). Invest in those things first, then do the more fun things. Save money where you can by doing things in your wheel house, as mentioned there are great videos for things like tiling, basic plumbing (toilet installs, faucets, etc), painting, replacing switches/fixtures. I've also had buddies come over to help with drywall and I learned a ton from them, I paid them but now it's something I can do some basics with. But don't be afraid to pay for the expert when you're uncomfortable or if it's a big job that would take months. Of course you'll pay for it, but I've found paying someone to do some things were just 100% worth it. For example, I've always done my own painting but I had a stairway and kitchen that needed new paint, and I had just done my cabinets and didn't want to screw them up. I had a guy who helped install my flooring who does a good job at a good price and he came over to do those two painting jobs flawlessly and I didn't have to disrupt my kitchen or whatnot for an entire weekend, trying to do ladders on narrow stairs with paint, etc. Worth the money to me to get it done right without the stress.
  4. Even though I love Doug Kramer the person and as an alum of Illinois, I would much rather take a flyer on a WR like Justyn Ross, I'm shocked that dude hasn't been picked yet. Not sure if Kramer is ever going to be strong enough to play in the NFL, but love his heart.
  5. Dang was hoping we’d snag Butler, thought he was great value here.
  6. I like both of the picks, they make sense. Still so many holes though and there are some great guys on the board.
  7. Is there any other way to accomplish actually changing out Putin/KGB without nuclear warfare than their own people making the change?
  8. Great win for Illinois, big statement for Bret and a horrendous start for Scott Frost. let’s get a bowl game fellas!
  9. I haven't been able to watch much this year, but tuned in for my first full game in a long time and man that was fun.
  10. https://twitter.com/rapsheet/status/1419097524028252162?s=21 Miller traded to Texans
  11. Had the same thought, he shouldn't have known those details since he didn't live through them. The Loki that did was killed by Thanos.
  12. Yes, college seniors have always been low balled by orgs as they have no leverage anymore. Their choice is sign, or be blocked from the minors and go play independent ball for years (and make diddly there too).
  13. Name, Image, Likeness Essentially, they can profit for them being...them.
  14. Do you mean Schwab? I didn't like their trading platform at all. When I moved off of Robinhood I moved into Fidelity, I wanted a broker that wasn't relying upon another clearinghouse (etrade, which I used to use years back uses apex). Fidelity is a pretty stable platform, but like most brokers their tech still looks like it was created in the 90s. I'm still amazed that not one of the big players hasnt found a way to develop a better UI.
