  1. I live in middle Georgia, so maybe that is why I feel that it is so cheap, but there is not a Caribbean or really a beach vacation cheaper than a cruise ship. Not including Disney cruises, you can often get on the nicest Royal Caribbean or Carnival ships for around $80-$100 a day per person. The smaller ships you can get for around $60-$80 a day per person. That includes all your food and entertainment, plus you often get to see 2-3 different countries/islands on each cruise. I don't have to pay for airfare, so that may be why I find it so cheap. I've only been on two cruises, but they were pretty awesome. I would definitely do another one if I didn't have four kids all under the age of 5 right now.
  2. This is Harbaugh hedging his bets. If he doesn't have a win against the Buckeyes by then, this kid is going to be Harbaugh's secret weapon to get that win against OSU. 😏
  3. I had a situation where I did a LARGE party event (there were 35 of us) at a place like Dave and Busters (it's a local place down in Georgia, but it's very similar to D&B). They had done the same thing with gratuity and I didn't even notice, till I took the bill back to my office to fill out a reimbursement form. I was so mad that they didn't make it more clear, although I should have read through the bill more closely. They ended up getting around 40% tip on that bill. It was fairly large. I often tip 20%, but if the restaurant does 18% for a large party of mine, I too don't give any more. Also, those new table top cashiers they have (they have them at Olive Garden and a few other restaurants I've been to), that automatically calculate the tip, have been saving me money. If 20% of the bill was going to be something like $12.35, I would always round up to $13 when filling out the bottom of the bill. Now, I just do the $12.35 they show on the screen.
  4. Mack is expensive, but I heard a commentator talk about how he is 11% of the salary cap. They also said he is among the most durable players of the past few seasons (determined by games/series missed). It was a no brainer decision by Chicago as this guy looks like he is firmly in his prime, and his durability so far as an NFL players indicates that he isn't likely to miss much playing time. Also, the Salary Cap liability likely changes in the next set of negotiations (although he can hold out). Still, I agree with you on the Lions.
  5. Patricia isn't going anywhere soon. The Lions stick with coaches...and really, they would have a tough time getting a good coach to come to an organization that would be willing to fire a guy after a year or two. Outside him doing something illegal or highly immoral, Patricia is likely here for 3 seasons. After watching Khalil Mack play in week one, I was second guessing the Lions passing on a chance to get him. Now that I've seen how bad we are (Mack would not have changed week one's results), the draft picks we would have had to give up to acquire him may be top 5 picks. So I'm glad we didn't, but boy would I LOVE to have him on the defensive side of the ball in Detroit. Too bad we have WAY too many holes fix than our pass rush.
  6. The problem is with it being the first game is that the next four games look even more difficult. @ 49ers Patriots @ Cowboys Packers The Jets, at least on paper, looked like the easiest game in the first five games. A rookie QB, and a team that won just 5 games last year. They looked amazing last night, and destroyed the Lions. Unfortunately it was 100% due to the fact that the Lions looked like the NFL version of the "Bad News Bears" last night.
  7. I posted this in another thread. It may explain why Jim Bob's playcalling seems to be so easily defended recently:
  8. I thought this was interesting: (Maybe it will explain why the offense has struggled several times under Jim Bob over the past dozen or so games)
  9. I like Stafford, I really do, but I am growing frustrated with him. The last few seasons, in several games, it often felt like he was nearly non existent (or worse, he was a detriment). Then the fourth quarter would come, and he would be this world beating QB. It seems like a big bulk of his stats happen during the 2 minute drill. To have such lopsided stats towards the end of a game makes me think that many of the problems on the offensive side of the ball are due to Stafford (I mean, it's not like they have different players than the first quarter...although maybe the defense is worn down at that point). I don't blame him entirely, but it's hard to see such brilliance from him at times, and such poor play at other times...in the same game. By the time he ends his career (barring a career ending injury) I think he will end up in the top 10-15 all time in passing yards, passing TD's, and completions. He would be a lock for HOF IMO. So he has been very good for the Lions, even though the bar is set low for QB in Detroit. If last night is any indication of how the season is going to play out (we have a ridiculously hard schedule IMO), the Lions are likely to have a top 5 pick. I'm still not ready to move on from Stafford, but if they could get a high ceiling QB in that draft, I would not be too disappointed if they spent their top pick on him.
  10. Do you all think we will trade Miggy before the start of next season? I would think his salary and length of contract would hurt us from getting much in return, unless we agree to pay a big chunk of his salary. I think he still has a lot of value to a playoff contending team, but taking on a contract as long as Miggy's is, would likely keep teams from throwing too many assets to get him IMO.
  11. Can we go ahead and order the statues? I would assume that if a HOFer spent most of his career in Detroit, they would have a statue a CoPa. Just save the spot next to Trammel for Lou. I REALLY hope he gets in too. That would make my childhood dream complete.
  12. I listen to her in my car from time to time when I'm driving around town. She does seem like she would be a pretty hard person to get along with. Seems pretty demanding.
  13. What is your thoughts on Laura Ingraham? Does anyone here listen to her radio show?
  14. IMO, as someone else stated, it is highly unlikely to happen. But if the planets aligned and this movement did have some teeth, the ONLY way I see this happening is if all the following happened: 1) Trump is re-elected in 2020 in another Electoral College vs. Majority Vote situation. 2) Absolute Civil War breaks out in California (and other deep liberal places in the country) 3) The vast majority of citizens of California DEMAND Secession from their leaders, and vote several times to make their opinions known. 4) Congress is still overwhelmingly GOP, and they know they are likely to gain some power by breaking up the liberal monopoly of California...even if it costs them a little in the Senate and House. Lot's would have to happen...it is HIGHLY unlikely....bordering on impossible.
