  1. Brady said he would have won if he could figure out how to deflate the golf balls.
  2. That's asinine, Boomer!

    I went to bed after the Macho Man/Steamboat match.

    Agreed, this recruiting success keeps me going , sports wise. Things are looking up. I did watch Wrestlemania 3 reruns the other night though. Closest I could get to sports.
  5. I was reading through the Chattanooga Times/Fish Wrapper on its FB page the other day and someone asked "Why is a liquor store essential?". Some comments were well thought out like "Alcohol kills germs" and "alcoholics need it" but my favorite was this: "We are home schooling".
  6. I too think this is overblown. Wal Marts, Home Depots, and Grocery stores never closed and up until recently the workers were not even wearing masks. No mass outbreaks in those stores of their employees. Wal Mart, for example, now opens at 7 am and closes at 10 pm instead of 24 hours. Assuming you have the same number of people shopping there all this does is put more people in the store at once. Yeah, I know "cleaning the store" but can they not do this while they are open?

    Public service announcement

    It's weird, comes from an email address to my text so I am not able to block.

    Public service announcement

    I get texts 2-3 times a day from some random email address and all it has is a download link. Of course I do not click it but I wish they would stop.
  9. Mental illness is nothing to mess with. I do not understand it but know some people very well that suffer from it and even some that have lost the battle. The best you can do is encourage them to get help and be there for them. I hope Brian gets the help he needs and I know the whole big orange family is behind him.

    NFL draft anyone watching?

    I tried but after the first 8 minutes of "We're all in this together" I gave up. Sports is supposed to be an escape.
  11. I know the colleges are shut down but does anyone know what the players are doing to stay in shape? Since there was no to little spring camp we didn't get the expected position battles. Is the team gym open? Do the coaches have any contact? Or will it be 2 weeks of training, then on to the games?

    Chattanooga seems to get tornadoes this time of year. In 1997 we were moving back from Florida to Crossville and stopped in Chattanooga to spend the night somewhere on the east side. Big U-Haul full of everything we owned. Tornado passed within a mile of where we were staying. We were lucky. I saw some drone footage of this most recent one and it looked bad.

    The WWE, if you can call that sports, has been deemed an essential business in Florida and will be doing live broadcasts with no live audience . I think they could start golf back up with no audience too because it is a no contact sport. I don't really watch either but if they want to ease back into televised sports there are 2 venues. Tennis as well.

    Essential businesses

    In Tec's defense (wow, did I really do that?) I do have several Uber Christian friends that would like to see liquor stores closed. And a few Muslin friends that feel the same way.

    I survived my purely recreational motorcycle ride. Rode over to beach town New Smyrna Beach and the streets were bare, never seen that before. I stayed at least 6 feet away from everyone, did not go into any businesses, and was covered from head to toe in protective gear,, motorcycle type , not medical.

    Florida governor just issued a stay at home order. I have not ridden my motorcycle in 2 weeks because of work duties (apparently I am essential) but I have this weekend off and I will be riding it in search of food (which is allowed). Long pepper is the spice I am looking for which I have never been able to find locally, in case anyone asks. And I will be staying at least 6 feet away from everyone.
  17. Any relation to Lady Vol Nicky? Glad Tec and family are well.

    Next time you get over to K Town they have opened up a new section of the Foothills Parkway, great views and photo ops.

    Good stuff GH6, I am not even going to post my bedroom walls. Were these painted on site or from memory?

    I have painted one of the kid's vacant bedrooms, sanded down and repainted the front door, and pressure washed the driveway. A few more weeks of this and the house will be ready to sell.

    We good down here Rob. I have been working from home for the past 3 years so its nothing new to me. But I do worry about the 55 techs who work for me that are out there every day touching keypads. Y'all stay safe out there and I am here to help if I can.
  22. Never thought of it that way but it makes sense.
