Hey, Yinz. Well, remember way back when me and Mrs Coldwarrior had twins, and ‘datu puti’ at 3 years old?…2011.

Well, all is well. Cheerleaders and most populars…etc. BUT, a schism has occurred! yes! One is a violin player and, as expected, has outgrown her basic violin. So, time to upgrade. It isn’t as simple as it appears!

 

Lets get to it: New V Old:

777 Expedition

Last week, a group of SOF veterans led by retired SEAL Andy Stumpf (probably best known to most people for hosting the Cleared Hot podcast) embarked on an epic mission. The goal: Conduct 7 freefall parachute jumps on 7 continents within 7 days. With that, the 777 (Triple 7) Expedition was born.

The current world record for jumping onto each of the seven continents is approximately seven months.  This intrepid group set out to do it in just seven days.

The organization behind the whole event is Legacy Expeditions, which bills itself as a “boutique adventure capitalist firm.” Their mission is to to “bring world record-setting attempts and expeditions to life, all while upholding the memories and legacies of fallen U.S. and Allied Troops lost during the Global War on Terrorism.” Past expeditions have included Mt. Everest and Iceland.

This year’s trek is devoted to raising money for the Folds of Honor foundation, which provides scholarships for families of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has provided more than 44,000 scholarships.  The fundraising goal for the 777 Expedition is to raise $7 million, which will pay for 1400 scholarships.

3 TCU

CFP National Championship pres. by AT&T

  @  1 Georgia
7:30 PM
ESPN

NO ONE, NO ONE had TCU in the final, no one. They were a 12.5 dog a few days ago, now it’s up to 13.5. The consensus is that the Georgia Bulldogs will beat the spread, I’m outta money,$0/$1000, first time I’m in the negative in 12 years. If it were real money, I would have walked at $1600/$1000. Good thing it’s fake money

I’d like to see the Horned frogs keep it close, but, jeeze….13.5 points is a lot of points. It looks like Vegas isn’t buying the ‘team of destiny’ shtick. Neither am I. But…13.5 is  ton of points. TCU covers.
