Re: Habits of People With Excellent Credit Score

I have walked out of a car showroom too many times to count. And at least a few times after a loud shouting match with the salesperson/manager. They need you, you don't need them.

Re: Deflategate question

I'm in Michigan. It's about 30*F outside right now, and sunny. But say it was raining. Would I be warmer or colder if the the sweater I put on before I go outside is soaking wet instead of dry?

Re: New Carpet

Could you tell if the difference in price the labor or the carpet?

Definitely the price of the carpet and pad. The labor cost for installation among the three was similar.

Re: Deflategate question

(1) Water evaporation cools the balls to a temperature below atmospheric temperature. (This is why we sweat.)

I'm too lazy to look up the humidity level at game time but my guess is that it was close to 100%. I wouldn't think much [more]

New Carpet

I thought I'd try and hold out on getting new carpet but the carpet was 15 years old, stained and matted down. So in November we decided to replace the carpet in the bedrooms and hallway on the second floor.

My first stop was a flooring [more]

Re: The Other Conspiracy Theory

Oh, I see. So you're saying that Belichick spread these rumors so that no one would claim him. That brilliant and evil cheater! Mystery solved.

Re: The Other Conspiracy Theory

Belichick is so brilliant that he convinced EVERY team in the league to not claim Blount off waivers so he could grab him.

Oh yeah, the article conveniently failed to mention that. ANY team in the league could have had Blount. Why didn't

Re: Deflategate question

That must mean that before the game, when the Colts gave 12 footballs to the officials, they must have been inflated to at least 14 psi, which is over the regulation limit. That would be cheating. Ironic, isn't it?

Re: Deflategate question

Since footballs that are inflated to a regulation 12.5-13.5 psi will deflate in cold weather, who is responsible for inflating the balls so they meet the specs during a cold-weather game?

Re: Booed Off The Field?

I'm not a fan of the Pro Bowl. For a lot of reasons it isn't a very good game, and will never be a good game.
