B's in 6

B's in 7

Next year. 

I like both of these teams so no losing on this one for me.

Not sure if we have any JDers in Calgary, but I sure hope they've grabbed their scuba gear and/or fled for the high ground or their boats.   :-\

Was reading a report that the first ten rows are underwater at the Saddledome, the Calgary Flames dressing room is totally submerged and the water has effectively shorted out all the electronics in the building, including the jumbotron wiring.   :o

Apparently the Jumbotron was on the floor surface for maintenance work and is completely done. 

Oddly we got some pretty heavy rains in Winnipeg the exact same day, to the point where the drain in our new Ikea store was shooting up water and they had about 8" of water on the main floor so they had to close down.  Obviously pales in comparison to Calgary though, that's just crazy.

Is it backwards compatible?  I know the answer, I just thought I'd ask anyway

Last time I went to Costco, it was an impulse buy of cheap 5-pack of socks for $6.  Time before that it was a 2.5lb bag of M&Ms.   ::)

As long as you avoide the impulse buy of a 70" LED TV you should be fine.

Don't waste your time on the 70".  It looks tiny when side by side with the 80".  I'm hoping the 4K/ultra-HD sets drive the price of that down to around $3000 for Christmas and it will be mine.  Then I won't have to venture into movie theaters anymore and that will make me happy because there are too many buffoons in movie theaters playing with their phones and I hate people.

About Braun, he tested positive last year.  He attacked an innocent man and claimed sample tampering and skated on a bull**** technicality.  MLB is out to nail him this time.

No question he's guilty but I find when I let emotion affect my picks, it usually doesn't work out too well.  So I opted for him on the chance they wouldn't nail him until most of the way through the season or after it was over.  Nope, it appears not.

No, I'm still fine doing it, I'm just not sure if everyone still wants me there so I thought I'd make it known that I'm not attached to it.  It's just that I spend altogether too much time looking at the nerd-verse that is Yahoo sports, so when a new registration period pops up for one of our leagues, I'm usually the first to see it and figure what the heck, I'll re-register us and then I become commissioner. 

I'm far from perfect at it, so I'll stay if you're fine but if there are complaints, I'll hand it over.  No worries either way  :)

We live less than a mile from a Costco and have a membership.  I buy propane there (about half the cost for a tank fill) and gas (about $.020-0.25 a gallon less) and maybe shop for food 5-6 times a year.  The proximity for the fuel pays for the membership but I don't get too excited by Costco because their hours are too limited and I can't find times when it's not busy and I hate people, by and large.  I don't blame them with a $10.00/hr minimum wage for closing registers, but it does cost them my business.

Yeah, I thought about that when drafting and was wondering how smart a Braun pick would be.  Turns out it may have been pretty dumb, but I've been pretty scuttled by injuries this year already with my 2nd, 3rd (half a season), 4th (looking at about two months total), 7th (six weeks to start the season) and 15th rounders all spending time on the DL, some of it considerable.  Before dropping Cabrera tonight I had five guys on my roster on the DL.  So if I lose Braun, I lose contributions from my first four draft picks for various reasons for considerable periods of time.

All that whining aside I'd still like to see sports in general cleaned up.  Baseball and track & field are the dirtiest, to my knowledge but I'm sure there are many others.  At least baseball keeps trying.

The replies don't go to everyone?  I got Patrick's - which I assume is what you're talking about since he texted me asking what you meant when you asked him to use the thread.

Personally I don't have a strong opinion on this any more.  I used to dislike the change, but I've adapted and am okay with whatever everyone decides.

No, the replies don't go to everyone though I suspect you can choose that as an option. 

Rather I'm trying to have everyone post their responses in that thread, so it largely mimics posting on a message board.  The posts become essentially permanent and everyone can see everything everyone else says.  Given a couple of folks don't post here at all and some not so much, otherwise I'd suggest we hold the discussion here. 

I got Patrick's too, obviously, but I was really surprised it didn't show up in the thread, so he took another option of responding to Ruiner's post in that thread.  I didn't really examine how he did it, I just know that only some of us would have seen it and if you don't keep all your emails, there's no record.  If it's posted on the thread on the league "board" it stays there and no one can come back later and say they didn't see that message or anyone else's either. 

If I can paraphrase, basically Patrick and Ruiner have opposing points of view.  Ruiner's opinion is there for all to read, Patrick's isn't.  So at this point Patrick's viewpoint is only visible to a few.  I know for example that Jim/chuckles/can't remember his team name didn't see Patrick's response to Ruiner. 

As commissioner, I'll go with a majority opinion but it sure would be nice to get everyone to post it on that thread so we don't have the debate during the season - again.  I won't change things during the season.  And I do have an opinion but I won't post mine unless we need a tie-break vote, because otherwise we have a nice odd number of 11 to discuss.  My vote could simply tie it. 

And I don't care about being commissioner either, so if anyone wants it, I can transfer it.  I just get stuck with it because I restarted the league.  I'm ok doing it but I do get tired of you whiney bitches at times.   :-*

Guys,
I posted regarding a discussion of how the group would like waivers to work on the league page.  Please post your responses there or here and don't respond directly by email.  It does no good for me and the email recipient being the only ones seeing them, everyone needs to be part of the discussion so we can reach a consensus.

Super quick payment from Dave, literally within hours of me giving him a total.  A complete pleasure to deal with.
