Jimbo, I get both Ca and Fl weather forecast on my iPhone. Whenever I check it here in Austin I sometimes check out the other two locations and if it's 70 in Fl it's generally 60 in LA and 50 in Austin. During the summer it's generally nice in Ca, hot in Fl and unbearable in Austin. Nothing beats the west coast, unless you're in Palm Springs!

TIC-TOC, TIC-TOC, TIC-TOC: You guys are going to have to forgive me, but somehow I just can't seem to get excited about much in sports these days. Yes, the Dolphins picked up a new TE, they cut $20M off their payroll and look to make a big splash in Free... Continue reading

That's okay, Woods. I wouldn't expect that level of understanding from someone who avoids staring at goldfish in aquariums for fear they might become hypnotized.

When one roots for their conference one is always engaged. When one is a Miami "purist," one gets excited about the SB every 40 years or so.

Let me see if I can simplify it for you, Woody. Whenever the olympics is happening I root for the United States. I don't stop rooting for an Athelete justbe because he or she is not from my home state. That is with the possible exception if I happen to find out that he or she is a liberal lefty, then I root for them to tear an ACL.

Had to root for NE, as they're good ole Patriots and their colors are red, white and blue. Certainly not a team that uses Black and red communist colored. Hahahaha...

Woodcock, you would have to wake up pretty early in the morning to get one past me. My fondest reference to Stolkhom syndrome goes back to 1988 where the dweeb talking head in tone of my favorite movies - Die Hard referenced it thusly: In the television newscast where the "terrorist expert" is being interviewed, he brings up the possibility that the hostages may have "Helsinki Syndrome." Then one of the anchors, Harvey, says "As in Helsinki, Sweden." ... And we all know that Stockholm is in Sweden. But somehow Mr. Woodcock still thinks Stockholm is in Tux-ton, Arizona. Que nalga!! Hahahahahaha....

Humiliated. Well, just like Gaga disappointing their liberal expectations and a November Trump victory they supported wrong again. For me it was a fun game to watch, and yes, it was also political.

The left hoped to see both Trump, and by extension, The Patriots' owner, coach and QB.

Jimbo, part of the answer to your SIL question may be contained in instances when a young person grows up sorounded by hardship. Much too often we see young people expect that society should guarantee certain benefits and lifestyles (which they call 'rights') simply because they feel comfortable, empowered by the awareness that they identify with others within a large forum of like-minded idealists - "and by golly, that's the way it SHOULD be." You'll seldom see those views or expectations from kids, who along with their parents faced experiences like: religious, political or cultural persecution, and otherwise serious financial hardships. You'll also realistic, appreciative and motivated conduct from many young people whose parents modeled "wise" behavior. True story: i had a co-worker at Northrop who was around 28 at the time. This guy made manager by 26 and was a hard-working manager. He also worked after hours and weekends developing and selling high-tech racing car parts after. He bought a house in Manhattan Beach before reaching 30. Here's the rub. Mark's father made millions, owning an advertising company in Madison Avenue. His three kids knew no hardships, but here is what he did. He impressed all his kids with the following: "if you like the lifestyle you have you are going to have to work to get it. Don't expect to go through your lives living off of MY hard work. You're my kids and I'll leave everything I have to all of you, but I've already signed all the legal papers and none of you will see a cent of that until you reach 55!

The way it stands as of right now, the Dolphins have but five picks: 22 overall, the 22nd pick in the second, fifth, six and seventh round. They traded away their third and fourth away last year to improve last year's picks. They will almost certainly be awarded compensatory picks, possibly coming at the end of the third and fifth round for losing more key players in free agency than gaining. We'll just have to wait until March to see how generous the league is concerning the Dolphins.

Few dismiss his talent, even overall "good guy" persona. Did wonders for Miami and Cleveland twice over. That's not what earns him isolated animus. He's merely a bi-product of his time and place...a guy owning up to socio-political pressures to voice opinions concerning domestic order. NBA fan base order, that is. Problem is that "personalities" like him and others (see Gregg Popovich, Steve Kerr) have yet to recognize that their views exist outside mainstream America. They falsely, comfortably continue to think that the entire country believe as they do. Elitist mindset that proclaims THEY know best or deserve the best due their self absorbed importance.

Braved the elements early this morning and forced myself to walk 18 holes in 39* temperature. The conditions and multiple layers of clothing required me to dial-down my swing, resulting with an overall better scoring game. Best shot of the day had to be the wedge from 40 yards up and in on #4. Sweet!

I hear ya, Jimbo. Taking the plunge into the Fla. panhandle sort of makes it hard to partake in Colorado's cold/warm offerings. No...Floridian retirerees are best served by accepting and adopting: boating, a marine lifestyle, golf or battling boredom by part-timing it at any of those Orlando attractions. Knowing you you'll be happiest after exploring and participating in the local triathelon events.
