Yeah, i heard about the bosa signing. Kind of surprising the chargers would pony up for him after trying to play hardball when they drafted him. It might be like a mack/donald thing 2 years ago, where the guy who signs last gets paid more. Myles garrett re-upped with the browns for 25M/yr and 100M guaranteed two weeks ago, now bosa got 27M/yr and 102M guaranteed. I think myles is a better player, mostly because he's more healthy, but they're both elite DE's. I guess the chargers were willing to pay him a market leading contract because theyre going to be in a new stadium, making more money (in theory, f*spanos!, worse decision ever to move them to LA) and wanted to lock up their marquee players long term.
In general it might not be a good move to pay market setting contracts to anyone but a QB. 11 yrs ago the bears gave julius peppers the biggest def contract in history, i think he only had one double digit sack season for them in his 3 yrs on the team. Same with khalil mack, he was great that first year, good but not great last year.
Definitely elevation affects temperature a lot, sub-saharan africa is hot but in the highlands and mountains it's pretty temperate. Plus the views should be awesome in the mountains. But yeah, rain would suck while camping, nothing to do but hunker down in the tent until it passes. But yknow, bring a board game or deck of cards to pass the time, wont be so bad.
