  1. NFL Post-Superbowl L : Wheeling Off Into the Sunset

    Why does Papa John get to be one of the first people Peyton meets on the field?  Not that I would want this.  That is unbelievably weird.

    Huh, wonder if it could be on the same cycle.  When I was told about it it was suggested that it might come at the end of the year, so I assumed it might show up Januaryish.

    Denver's D is unreal, but I think Carolina corrects the mistakes and finds a way to win.

    To the best of my knowledge there is absolutely no on the bubble thing going on.  One thing I could add is that the boss added something about how we were going to be going through a busy season but that there would be a light at the end of the tunnel.  There's no reason that I can think of though that they would have had any reason to say this.  I wasn't posturing to leave or anything.

    Thanks, Ini - I figure that it likely can't hurt to bring it up.  I just find it a bit strange that it was said when it seems to have not happened.   Zeltigar - That's very interesting.  This place is a 501(c)3.  Does that tell you anything?  I'm salaried.

    TJ Ward is a monster.  Always has been.

    I have an issue I'd love to bounce off of people where something a little weird happened, and I'm not sure how to react to it.  A boss called me aside a few months ago saying that they had some good news.  They said that HR does a periodic analysis or something and had determined that for my education and work history I needed to get paid more.  I was told that I'd very likely be getting a substantial raise a few months down the road.  Well, its been some time now to where it seems pretty clear that I didn't get it.  And the person that told me about it hasn't said anything.  How should I read this?  Was this something shady on the part of the person that told me, or just some mix up?  Should I be comfortable approaching them and asking what happened?  Thanks

    I would find that quite shocking.  I'll go with Panthers 27 to Broncos 17.
  9. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    But did Cruz completely lie about when CNN clarified?
  10. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    But part of the point about Christie savaging Rubio isn't about experience.  It's that he shows very little thinking and just repeats himself.  Christie attacked him on this, and Rubio responded by repeating the very same line that generated the attack.  It looked devastating to me from an optics perspective.    
  11. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    I don't disagree with any of that, but my point was more about Rubio's chances of winning the GOP nomination.
  12. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    Some of the online commentary supports my argument that Christie absolutely savaged Rubio.   Not sure who else we could call the winner tonight.  I thought Cruz actually did well but for the issue with Carson which I find difficult to evaluate.  Do Cruz voters care if he's full of shit?  Does he actually gain support for apologizing?
  13. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    I think he was actually referring to a technical definition that says something like "feelings akin to organ failure.".  Man, am I coming to Cruz's defense on creepiness?
  14. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    Cruz is against torture except in cases when he is for torture.
  15. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    Eh, sort of.  But he was also saying that everyone should be covered.   OK, this is a very premature comment, but I think Christie may have seriously wounded Rubio.  Rubio responded in the worst possiblway by doing just what Christie was accusing him of.  It's like he exposed the fraud.
