    OPEN

    THIS was a day off??? WTF…I work harder at work! Quite a honey-do list was handed to me yesterday. Now I can goof-off until work Monday morning. Lets start with placing a brisket on the smoker. THAT will be ready tomorrow! The girls want to sleep outside on the deck tonight AND tomorrow. I just got done tying off the tarp, OD Green, Canvas, 8×16, to the deck roof and to the outer rail so as to cover the other half of the deck. Very field expedient, if i say so myself.

    Dinner will be Hebrew National hot dogs and some wonderful Andoille sausages au grille…some fried peppers and onions to top that off.

    Of Course there will be college football! And some Caribbean Professional T20 Cricket tonight and tomorrow.

    Let’s get started with some white ball.

    Tonight (Friday)

    The Jamaica Tallawahs are at The Trinidad and Tobago (Trinbago) Knight Riders live from Queen’s Park Oval. Who will win? I don’t care. The CPL is THE Biggest Party In Sport! as they say. And it’s the truth. the stands look like a great way to spent 4-5 hours! Booze, dancing, music, great food…hey, it’s sponsored by El Dorado Rum! Going to one of these matches is high on my bucket list.

    Marshall at #24 Boise State – Fri, Sep 6, 9:00 PM ET…Boise got shown what real ball looks like last week by FSU. However, their QB is amazing. He an the Broncos will cover the 13 that Caesars’s is giving The Herd.

    Saturday:

    Ohio at Pittsburgh – Sat, Sep 7, 11:00 AM ET…The Alumnae are calling for the head coach’s head already. It’s a yearly thing with my beloved Panthers. The Online crew is giving 3.5 to OU. I’ll take PITT to cover.

    #21 Syracuse at Maryland – Sat, Sep 7, 12:00 PM ET…The Terps are getting 1.5? Something looks fishy and I’m staying away from this one. Nah. I’ll take the Orangemen to cover.

    #12 Texas A&M at #1 Clemson – Sat, Sep 7, 3:30 PM ET…here is how far apart the numbers are Friday evening: Caesars +16.5 // William Hill +19. This is highly unusual. There might be a +/- 0.5 between the houses. 2.5???? I don’t even know what to do with this. That 19 looks awfully tasty. And I’ll take the Aggies to cover. I have a soft spot for TAMU….a home game there is also on my bucket list. We’ll see if that is a soft spot in my head or not Saturday evening!

    BYU at Tennessee – Sat, Sep 7, 7:00 PM ET…The Mormons are getting 4 on the road, at fabled Rocky Top versus the Team Formerly Known as The Vols. OK, I’ll bite. The Vols cover. (I expect to lose this one).

    Coastal Carolina at Kansas – Sat, Sep 7, 7:00 PM ET…Les Miles (of LSU fame) is now a Rock Chalk Jay Hawk! Kansas WILL start winning under Les. But, he has a team of peeps that he didn’t recruit. Coastal Carolina is getting 7??? I’ll bite. Kansas covers.

    #6 LSU at #9 Texas – Sat, Sep 7, 7:30 PM ET…game of the week. All houses are agreed the Texas gets 6.5 at home. LSU will cover.

    #23 Stanford at USC – Sat, Sep 7, 10:30 PM ET…USC is getting 2.5 at Ceasar’s. I’ll take The Cardinal to cover.

    Incarnate Word is hosting Texas Southern. There is no line as betting against GOD is a bad idea.

    Last week 2/3 $1100/1000…each bet is $100 unless otherwise noted.

    A song to get us into Friday night:


    Enjoy!

      @ coldwarrior:

      Did you see that the National Soccer League has ‘declared’ the Betsy Ross flag to be a hate symbol or something?

      And people wonder why I’m sick of sports

      As for that idiot in Pgh, one of those businesses should hire a hacker and go after every account he has on any platform. Including a Ring doorbell. It would be great if his house is full of ‘the internet of things’ stuff. Alexa? Oh yeah. Keep him so busy chasing bugs and viruses he doesn’t have time for political intimidation.

      Yikes

      The top admiral in charge of Naval Special Warfare has fired the entire leadership team of SEAL Team 7 over a “breakdown of good order and discipline,” a spokeswoman for Naval Special Warfare Command told Task & Purpose on Friday.

      Cmdr. Edward Mason, the commanding officer of ST7; Lt. Cmdr. Luke Im, the executive officer; and Command Master Chief Hugh Spangler were all relieved of their leadership posts on Friday, said Cmdr. Tamara Lawrence.

      The relief was carried out by Rear Adm. Collin Green, the commanding officer of NSW. Lawrence said their relief was “due to a loss of confidence that resulted from leadership failures that caused a breakdown of good order and discipline within two subordinate units while deployed to combat zones.”

      did you catch the article I posted on that couple leaving Sweden? This is a really interesting thread by a guy who had to work there and he effing HATED IT. It’s a long thread, but this…(prefaced by everyone lives in apartment blocks and private washing machines are unheard up – everything is communal)

      To use the washing machine, you have to sign up for a 1 to 2 hour slot which typically involves a 1/2 week waiting time. So you can only do your washing during these pre-arranged appointments. Obviously competition for the top washing spots at the weekend is fierce.

      People often have to take days off work in order to do their washing because they have not been able to do their washing in the evening or at weekends for months – months! – on end. Some people resort to booking slots at 3am and setting their alarms to wake up on week nights.

      You have to PHYSICALLY be in the room to do your wash otherwise the sensor turns everything off. People have huge arguments when others are late for their slot/do too much washing/don’t clean the washing machine afterwards (you’re obliged to clean the machine fully after use)

      The hotels make you make your own beds, and some make you rent the sheets (which are all white, btw, in the entire country), buying booze is like queing up in the old Soviet Union, the customer service consists of “do it yourself”, even in McDonalds you have to pay to use restroom, and everything closes at 5 pm sharp.

      So much for the Vikings

      uh, wait

      The ATF has re-classified the Semi-Auto AA-12 Shotgun’s produced by BC Engineering as a shotgun and is sending letters to owners to turn them in? Based on markings?

      I have no idea how they know who owns them, either

      trade wars don’t cause recessions, they cause re-alignments of supply chains..bullish consumers and good job numbers = no recession, which is 2 consecutive quarters of negative gdp growth.

      @ coldwarrior:

      But I wonder why the ADT numbers were so far off. Their ‘expected’ was better than their ‘actual’.

      And, if I’m not mistaken, August is generally slow

      As to ‘re-alignment of supply chains’, I think something for more extensive is going on. I think Trump is causing a de-coupling of our economy with China. And forcing a bit of it globally, too. It’s going to take awhile to shake out – and the UK isn’t helping. I found out about some sneaky deals May did with them.

Bianca’s parents brought her here with hopes of giving her a better life and two suitcases. They sacrificed to get her to the top. Really great kid and parents.
