  1. Erod scored in the last Pens game, Pens fans on Twitter talking about what a steal he was and how stupid Buffalo was to trade him
  2. the scary part of this is the unknown. Corona Viruses have been around for a long time, but this strain is new according to the WHO. I have been reading conflicting reports of the severity of the sickness and I just don't know what to believe. One report stated that the mortality rate for under 40 years old is only slightly higher than the flu, 40-55 slightly elevated mortality rate and then it skyrockets over 55. As a 40 year old, how much do i have to be afraid? Some doctors say its like getting the flu on steroids with respiratory issues as well. I probably wont die if i get it, but I don't want it either, but it's spreading faster than SARS (WHO) i have a 2 year old and 6 year old, how much do i have to worry about them? i can't find a straight answer. this video pants a terrifying picture of what's happening in northern Italy. i work on a military base in SW Ohio and with 3 confirmed cases in Cleveland, the base released a statement saying that the threat is still currently low but to make preparations for base closure to non-essential personnel and to be prepared to telework if need be. Right now, 8 people in the building i work at are quarantined because they were on a work trip to Japan 10 days ago.
  3. or going to a 3 hour meeting in which you know that only about 7 minutes will be useful for you
  4. my two year old daughter (who was/is a huge momma's girl) reached for me during the bedtime routine (which only my wife could ever put her to bed calmly) last night and said "want daddy go night-night" put her head on my shoulder and wrapped an arm around my neck... i still feel that way about the military base being closed or delayed due to weather!
  5. pulling the perfectly smoked ribs out of the smoker...
  6. on my lunch today I was watching the replay of the 1980 US olympic game. Ken Dryden was commenting on one of the Soviet lines about how the three forwards played on different teams in Russia and that while they "don't work that well as a line, they're three extremely talented hockey players individually...much like the French Connection in Buffalo, Perrault, Martin, Robert didn't play great as line but they were amazing individual talents." I am too young for the French Connection, any older fans here that can either agree with or refute what Dryden said?
  7. The problem is that AJ wants a long contract, at 32, he knows this is his last chance for a long hefty contract. His recent injury concerns (only played 9 games last two seasons) and age scare me a bit. On the other hand, he could be the next James Lofton for us, you never know. I dont think AJ is the right player to target. Next draft is uspposedly heavy with stud WRs, draft the best WR available and go from there
  8. Should've clarified, sorry. I didn't vote because I don't think that you can say one is better than the other just yet. I think i saw last night that only .01 PPG separates these guys in their careers so far.
  9. I'd like to see a few more years of this before you can definitively say Eichel is better. The fact that Matthews is 'slumping' at 1 PPG still means one helluva hockey player. I think it's more likely that Matthews improves on his PPG than Eichel is to keep his torrid pace up.
  10. once the zombie Apocalypse happens, you'll be nice and safe in those mountains. I read they don't like cold and walk very clumsily, so mountains are the place to be!
  11. I joined the military in 2004 and have moved around the country quite a bit and dealt with all sorts of natural disasters. I lived in Ohio from 04-08 and nothing too bad other than nasty wind and midwest cold. I lived in VA for 3 years and other than some really nasty snowstorms in 08-11 it wasn't worse than Buffalo snow storms, except VA doesn't know how to deal with it like back home and stores would be closed for days if a foot of snow fell. I spent 4 years in California and went through a lot. Flooding from so much winter rain the first year to severe drought the next three years, wild fires were so close that ash was falling and it smelled like a campfire for weeks at a time, been through a few earthquakes as well. Spent time in TX, flash flooding, severe thunderstorms with nasty hail happened all the time. I have now lived back in Dayton OH since 2016 and nothing can compare (for me anyway) to the Memorial Day 2019 tornadoes late at night. We had something like 15 confirmed touch downs. I was in bed at 1030 and couldn't sleep because there was so much thunder and lightning, my wife came running into the room saying the tornado sirens were going off, grabbed the kids and my dog and went into the basement. we have a walkout basement so not fully underground but good enough. An F4 went by our neighborhood, within a quarter mile, it was so loud and my house was shaking, things kept hitting my basement door and i was legit terrified. fortunately it barely missed us but other neighborhoods weren't so lucky. Whole neighborhoods and businesses were destroyed throughout the area because there were so many tornadoes. Amazingly only one person died. an 80 year old man sleeping in bed had a car thrown into his house. there has been a tornado here every year since I moved here in 2016 and they have been getting worse. we had several close calls.
  12. i have only been around this message board maybe a year or so, I have never seen this thread before. It is hilarious, i just read through all 10 pages this morning, was a good laugh. My favorite was Duct Tape...the Matt Ellis of weatherproofing and RC Cola a close second haha
  13. I mean, if you were going to make a candy power ranking, Kit Kat is top 5!
  14. I had my house decked out with orange and purple lights since Oct 1st. Scores me points with my wife and kids as they love that stuff. The Halloween lights come down today and then I start planning the xmas lights.
  15. some like it and some don't, I am just saying that compared to the Blue Jackets goal song, it's pretty okay haha
  16. no kidding, what's the mental block we have with the Panthers? it really is annoying
  17. it's Aces compared to the Blue Jackets goal song...just terrible and its been the same for a long time. The cannon shot is cool though
  18. they must have changed their policy then, I just got Sunday Ticket for the 1st time this year and the local (Bengals, Browns) are always blacked out and you have to watch the local channel that it is broadcasted on. I was thinking about getting NHL.tv, is it worth it other than the blackout of course?
  19. there's nothing wrong with making observations from the game. Vesey was awful in the Columbus game, that's why it's being talked about it the Columbus game thread. If someone starts a "Vesey is terrible" thread, then yeah, i would say that's a little over the top because it's so early.
  20. He signed a commitment to play for Ohio State and if he was actually fully healed and cleared to play, then I can understand the frustration of the fans and teammates who were unhappy. But if he was still injured and was advised not to play, then that's fine. While he didn't get compensated beyond a free education, he also got the opportunity to play for one of the best college programs in the country and showcase his talent that helped get him drafted to make his millions.
  21. Bosa opting out of the college playoffs and bowl game was not received well by Buckeye fans here. Guy I work with and I were talking about this earlier today. He said "If Bosa would've cared more about his team (Buckeyes) than his draft status, they wouldve beaten Oklahoma and Mayfield wouldn't have had the chance to plant the flag." There were whispers that he was cleared to play but he chose to sit. I for one thought it was funny, Mayfield needed a good humbling and he got exactly that.
  22. Vesey was not only slow last night, but I feel like everytime i saw him, he was just lumbering up the boards, not getting into the coners and rarely put himself in a postition for a shot. I don't think I saw him in front of the net once
  23. Aaaaand of course, they just can't win a friggin game in Columbus for me...again. Few thoughts from ice level. Jackets were pretty amped especially after starting 0-2 and getting thumped by the Pens I wouldn't say the Sabres were terrbile in the 1st as much as I'd say that the Jackets were just playing good hockey Ullmark faced a lot of shots and looked pretty sharp Dahlin took a few bad penalties that cost us, though one was a pretty solid Premiere League dive Eichel wasn't super sharp but not bad either, except his giveaway in OT right in front of me Mojo's play was a pleasant surprise (i didnt get to see the 1st two games), he was one of the few skating hard every shift Larsson Girgs KO were aight, they definitely get too much time on the ice Vesey is worthless, will likely be a fan whipping boy soon. Sheary and Mittelstadt were always hustling but Vesey was slow an not interested the whole night Olofsson seems to have 'it' he's strong on the puck, knows where to go to get a scoring chance, had the PPG goal late to tie it, kid could have over 30 this year Jackets goal song is awful but the cannon is pretty cool there was an 8 year old kid trash talking the sabres and yelling all night, screaming at the refs...it was hilarious there were tickets selling in the upper bowl corners for $7...my double vodka 7-UP set me back $22
  24. I live about an hour from C-bus and will be there with two of my friends. Only issue is that the Sabres are 0-5 in the games I have attended. Hopefully that changes tonight. I was very skeptical going into this season but the amazing start has me tingling a little bit
