    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.

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Good stuff. Always cool when y'all get the players to guest-write.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I'm with you. We don't have any reason to blame GarPax on Nwaba yet. Though the key word is "yet" - I still have zero faith in them until they start making moves that prove they are capable of building a winner. But we'll see. I'll judge the move once we have any idea of what kind of money Nwaba is asking for. I'm assuming it's more than any of us would like.
  15. I picked a good year to move to Belgium. This has been really fun. And with the U.S. not making it, it has been nice to have a legitimate team I can root for.
  16. Couldn't agree more. The Butler trade was bad, but what's done is done. Can't change it now. It would only compound the problem to sign LaVine to a massive deal and then tie up our cap space with a player who isn't a star.
  17. This is good to see. Smart to let it play out and see what he can get on the open market.
  18. I was slightly encouraged to see that quote. I, too, hope that means they're planning on tanking again. Of course, with the changes to the lottery in 2019, full tank-mode doesn't help quite as much as it used to. But I'll take whatever we can get.
  19. Who would have moved the needle at #7? Or are you more upset with the bad job of tanking that we did?
  20. Totally agree. I would love to see us jump back into the lottery.
  21. Yep, I'm happy with it. I said in a previous post that I felt better about Carter than I did Young, Bamba, or Porter. Though I remember some people in here who said they're were going to be pissed if we took Carter over Porter, so can't make everyone happy.
  22. Unfortunately, you are correct. GarPax have done nothing to prove otherwise. It's fun to dream up scenarios, but then I have to ground myself by remembering who runs our team.
  23. I agree with this completely. I'm not moving up for someone other than Doncic. And as many others have mentioned, GarPax's trade history is not great. They always give up more than other teams seem to. So I guess I shouldn't get my hopes up that they'd do something smart after all these years. A lot of folks are talking about moving up to #4, but what about #3? I haven't followed things as closely as normal, but I read that Atlanta would be willing to shed #3 if someone takes on one of their bad contracts (Bazemore or Plumlee). Maybe that wasn't a real rumor. I'm very conflicted on a lot of our realistic options at 7. There are many things I dislike about MPJ, Young, and Bamba. I'm sure I'll talk myself into whatever player we draft because I always do. But as of now, I have real concerns about all of those guys. Oddly enough, the one I feel most comfortable with is Wendell Carter Jr. and he seems to be the one who's ranked lowest of those 4.
