Re: THIS...

Iowa lost this championship game, but apparently they put up a helluva fight. And their fans cheered them as they left the field.

I'm a proud Hawkeye fan, having received my J.D. from Iowa in 1981 and my M.D. in 1988. Iowa is in the [more]

Re: Cooper - A Class Act

I just have to say that Amari Cooper is really a class act.

Agree completely. Raiders have a solid core of classy young stars, including Khalil Mack and Derek Carr. It's hard to imagine that Johnny Manziel was drafted ahead of Derek [more]

Re: ancient flashes

I think I'll call Tempe Camera and see if they have an interest.

While you're on the phone with them, ask them when they're going to finally get in some Canon 1DX Mark II's. Been impatiently waiting on their waiting list, looks like a [more]

Re: Michigan State QB Connor Cook to Raiders...

[K]id has all the tools to be an NFL QB

Even with our upgraded Offensive Line, I've still worried about what would happen if Derek Carr went down. Having two backup QBs, a veteran and a rookie is probably cheap insurance. In addition, [more]

Re: Weight management for OAPs.

Here's hoping that we have a good year of health!

Indeed. I never envy anybody else's medical problems, since they're all challenging. The pain and mobility problems that go along with Ortho challenges are not anything any of us would [more]

Re: Weight management for OAPs.

There may be limitations given your age/physical status/psychological make-up that prevent you from getting so fit that daily exercise will add a big figure to your total daily energy exepnditure but an appropriately designed programme will help [more]

Re: Poll: Choose my next car

I think at most BMW dealerships they verify that you're an a$$hole driver before they will sell you the car.

It's supposed to be a secret. Pretty simple test really, ending in a test drive in which the potential purchaser has to [more]

Re: Poll: Choose my next car

You do know that accident avoidance and accident survivability are different. Your previous post stated "a car that'll keep you out of accidents". A large vehicle will not do that.

A vehicle with higher performance is able [more]

Re: Poll: Choose my next car

As you get older your reflexes slow so to my mind you shouldn't be looking to buy a cheap car to last you for "...the rest of my driving life." but rather a car that'll keep you out of accidents. . . I recommend the Cadillac Escalade or [more]

Re: Poll: Choose my next car

Plan A is to use some of the equity to buy a durable, fuel-efficient car to last me probably the rest of my driving life.

One of the biggest costs of car ownership is depreciation. If you can buy and keep a car that holds its value, [more]

Re: OT. Median house price

Waiting for new ///M2

I've been trying to get my hands on one of BMW's new ///M2 coupes. It's been getting great reviews, small, tossable, focused, and probably only slightly less straight-line acceleration than its big brother the ///M4. [more]

Re: Typical

I have four iPhone 5S on my plan. Two people would upgrade to the SE, one person to the 6S and one person is on the fence. IMO, there is demand for the smaller phones.

Re: Oh Wow!

[I]f I were an owner or coach I would not take him.

IIRC, you're a fellow Raiders' fan, at least as long as Amari wears the Silver and Black. GM Reggie McKenzie is the one making draft decisions for our team, and he's been on a roll [more]
