that sounds like shorts and t-shirt weather
i hope you are able to enjoy the nice weather and spend some time outside
yeah man, we are heading out to the mountains in a few weeks
its nice at elevation, it will get hot and we might have t-storms if we get some tropical air (humidity) but it should cool down at night pretty quickly
i collect shells when i walk along the beach and i also have this thing for seas glass
at one point we we found so much sea glass that we would toss back half of what we came across
shells are neat too but it needs to be an almost perfect specimen for me to keep, good color and form with no hole
i dont really see many hermit crabs here but we find all kind s of stuff in the tide pools
the nba model sounds like the most safe for players and stff
its almost like an oil worker or fisherman; someone who spends a few moths working in total isolation, then a bunch of time off
/that could be the only way to ensure a full season for any team sport
with the moeny they are being paid, i think its not that bad a deal for most players
speaking of getting paid$$$$$
what is your take on the j.bosa contract
it looks like the chargers pulled out all the stops and showed him the money fo sure
im not sure this was the best move the team could have made but hey, f'the chargers
/and more importantly, f'spanos!
have a great weekend brother!

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.

its funny you mentioned cards bacause me and the mrs love playing games
loco ocho, is one of our favorites but we also play rummy ( she is a very good player) and other games
i dont mind a little rain and it wouldent be that bad unless it was like full on downpours
so i caught up with my friend who got back from collecting and i was blow away by what he had to show me
im going to get some pics up here soon and i cant wait to show you what he had
he gave me a few high grade choices and said when he comes back through he will let us pick through what he has left
i think bosa was smart to sign a new deal now and we will see where the top end is
you make a great pint about how a alot of defensive players have not lived up to their expectations once they got paid
/a.hainsworth is another high end bust
mack seems to still have a lot going for him and i think he is still top end
i feel like bosa will also continue to produce, just to be one up on his brother
but to spend so much on one player takes away from the rest of the team and they will have to pay derwin james big money at some point here
/at least big for his position
but for sure man, f-spanos

I’ve never heard of loco ocho, had to look it up. Is it like UNO? A card game using special cards, can’t use a regular deck? I remember playing UNO a lot when I was younger, it was a fun time. No money involved so more kid friendly but still, the competition is there.
You ever play Texas hold em? My coworkers liked to have poker parties when that was the big craze, $50 buy in, I never won anything but it was always a good time. Players take turns dealing, you’d need to have poker chips or pennies to bet with though.

I’d like to see some of what he’s giving you, im sure they look pretty sweet. I should actually post some food pics up, I actually used the cooker for the first time in months on a bunch of pork chops but unfortunately didn’t take pics. Maybe ill try another brisket or something now that meat prices have normalized.

J. bosa got paid, for the chargers sake hopefully he’s healthy for most of that contract. JJ watt was worth his contract and more but the last 3—4 years he’s been injured more often than not. Haynesworth just had a bad attitude (he wanted to play DT in a 4-3, not nose tackle in a 3-4) and got lazy and overweight. A. Donald so far has been worth his money, k. mack at least has been healthy even if he’s not producing stellar numbers. Ur right about derwin, he’s going to be the highest paid safety in the league when he gets extended (maybe next year or the year after?).

happening brother
hahah, loco ocho is our name for crazy eights
one night we were playing cards and trying to think of new games
for some reason we jsut started calling it loco ocho
i used to play poker and black jack when i was younger and would bet a lot
i kind of stopped playing for money, now its strictly just for fun
but i like playing for bragging rights or something small
we are still looking for new games to play
i will get the pics up soon, im having computer troubles again
this time instead of tearing things apart myself, i called a friend who knows what he is doing and i need a new power supply
i think bosa will stay competitive just to set the pace for the bosa name
/who wants to be outshined by their kid brother
but i can see the cap space getting tights over time and the chargers landing in a tough spot as far as retaining/ garnering new talent
/have i mentioned f-spanos?
that would be rad to see what you have been up to with the grill
i made dome pork ribs the other day and they came out pretty good

Heh, i did a search for loco ocho and it came up with this card game with special cards, like UNO. But yeah, it’s amazing how many different games you could play with a standard deck of cards, literally like thousands of different variations although only a few dozen are popular at any given time.
Maybe you could try what the kids play and play Magic the gathering, although those require special cards as well.

I had to replace the power supply in an old PC of mine as well, this is one I built in 2009 or so. But even after that it was acting kind of funny, so I switched the motherboard with a different, slightly newer one, but that one would have issues too. I think it might have been an issue with the case itself, maybe there was some sort of short circuit going on. Then I just gave up on it and haven’t revisited it since, but if I use a different case and everything works then I’ll know it was the case (as well as the power supply). These computer issues can be real frustrating, just like anything electrical, most of the time it’s a common problem but as you troubleshoot and it still has issues you go further down the rabbit hole and after a time it’s like why am I spending all these hours on this crappy ass system? Lol.

Nick bosa is going to be the next ‘highest paid def player in history’ in 2-3 years, assuming decent health. Their dad was a 1st rd nfl pick in his day too, so that’s some good genes there. Nick and joey’s issue wasn’t talent it was always health, but nick was healthy his whole rookie season after having issues his last year in college and training camp.

Bears paid market setting contracts to mack and eddie Jackson (highest paid safety in the league currently). I think the best thing to do is the belichick way, have a deep middle class of players instead of a few highly paid guys. Bears still have a good D but last year they weren’t really top 5 (niners, steelers, ravens, pats, vikes were all better) although maybe the offense’s struggles contributed to that. As long as the chargers have a good QB (Herbert might be something) they should be ok even tight cap space, but ur right it’s better to have many good players instead of just a few great players.
I bought a brisket so ill be trying to smoke that soon, I think if I get a good fire going and then stir the coals to get the fire even it should have a stable temp for a long time, will post results.

oh wow, i dident know that was the name of a real game
i wonder if you an just modify a regular deck of cards to play it
/i will have to check it out
i had a friend who was into the magic card game and he had a ton of cards
i guess some of them can get really expensive
from what i can tell, its more like a pokemon game where each card is kind of unique and you need the real cards to play
it sounds like you know your way around a computer baba'
they have gotten so cheap now days that i dont really mess around with them much anymore but this was a $30 fix and my friend will do the work for free
/actually ill taking him out for dinner
but thats where they get you, charging like $50 to install a $30 part
im glad hes such a good friend, this is the guy who lets me grow weed in his back yard too btw
i totally agree that nick will set a new standard when he gets paid and so far he has been just as good if not better than his brother
i think joey only played like 11 games last season, so if nothing else he is more durable
/like you once said, the best ability is availability
the chargers are hoping the get star play out of herbert, for the first few years he plays for cheap
but you know there will be more players coming to the table wanting more money as time goes on
hope you do cook up that brisket man, that sounds awesome
are you going to put some rub on that for now or is it just chilling in the fridge

From the search it seemed like it was a specialized deck of cards, like some of those card games for kids. Maybe it’s popular in Spanish speaking countries?
Yeah, I think you could easily spend thousands on MTG cards, if you’re buying a lot of decks to find a good one, or buying the good ones outright. But im guessing you could just get a basic deck and have fun playing without getting too serious into it. It’s ridiculously popular and might be an interesting departure from standard card games.

Yeah, another easy fix is every motherboard has one of those circular 3v lithium batteries on it, to keep track of time or something, and those go bad after years but are easily replaced. Well, u might have to take out the graphics cards or something to reach it. But that’s great ur buddy will do the work for free, it’s pretty easy too, a screwdriver is the only tool required, and there’s tons of videos and info online on how to build and troubleshoot computers. You might have to spend an hour or two looking at videos to familiarize yourself but it's something anyone could do, you dont have to be a computer geek or engineer to do this.

I was surprised nick bosa played all 16 games last year plus playoffs, remember he got hurt early in training camp (groin or hammie) and missed most of preseason. But I guess they managed his reps well during the season, they had a very deep DL so could rotate him in and out to keep him fresh and lessen the risk of injury.

According to Pro football reference joey started all 16 games last year, it was 2018 that he missed more than half the season (was that the foot injury?). In 2017 he played all 16 games, and in 2016 his rookie year played 12 games cause of the holdout. But ur right, he seems to have these nagging injuries a lot even when he plays, half the time he’s listed as ‘questionable’ when he plays. Knowing the chargers luck (f* spanos!) he’ll immediately miss half his games once that extension kicks in.

I guess Anthony lynn is committed to giving tyrod the job to start the season, if he’s unable to score pts they’ll turn to Herbert. Tyrod is steady, his numbers in buffalo aren’t actually much different than josh allen’s, his legs making up for any lack of passing ability. Chargers OL might still be subpar so it might be best if you play a QB who can run. Herbert is a good athlete too, and bigger/stronger, but it makes sense to spare the new young hotness some early beatdowns.

I guess I could put a rub on it now and let it soak in or cure for a day or so, good idea. Haven’t really decided when I would cook it, I just made a bunch of pork chops so don’t really need any meat for a while. Im trying to clear up space in the freezer so I can save some of this stuff for later on…

my bad baba', you are right about bosa playing all 16 games last year
as long as he is one the field he is a force, but he does have a history of being on the sidelines
i am actually a fan of t.taylor and am surprised he hasent had more success in the nfl
i have a box of the magic cards somewhere in the garage
one of our neighbors gave them to us a long time ago when my nephew was a kid
he was too young to really get it so i just boxed it up and stashed it
i looked up that ocho loco game and it looks just like crazy eights but has hot pepper cards
i guess they can be use like wild cards to change the suits (like you would with an 8) or even change other things like what catds are wild
i guess you could use a regular deck and just play the jokers like the hot peppers
cant go wrong with pork chops and you can save the beef for another time
ive dry aged beef for a few weeks in these bags i got online once and it came out pretty good

I think if joey bosa ever had a season where he was healthy every game, without nagging injuries, he could easily get 15+ sacks. As it is, he starts but seems like most games he’s nursing something or other, and still gets 11-12 sacks a year. So give him credit for playing through injuries, although I guess most football players do that during the season.

Tyrod started for the browns when baker was a rookie, I think he was alright but that one Thursday night game (against the jets?) he played terribly (maybe he was concussed or something) and baker came in and led them to a comeback win. After that he went to the bolts and of course backed up rivers, who never gets hurt enough to miss games, and now is finally getting another chance to start. He’s average at best in the pocket but he keeps turnovers low, which is the minimum you need from ur QB if you hope to win games.

Chargers will be interesting with a new QB (tyrod or the rookie), raiders might start mariota at some point if the offense falters again under carr, and broncos will see if drew lock is finally their franchise guy. But overall KC rules that division for now.


Heh, you should dig up that box of magic cards if you can, who knows some of them might be worth something on ebay, craigslist, facebook marketplace, even if you don’t want to play the game. With a regular deck of cards you could almost play anything (like that loco ocho game using jokers as peppers like u said) so no need to learn another card game, unless you want to get deep into nerd culture (ie magic the gathering) unless you want to.

Dude I made like 20lbs of pork chops, I like pork as much as the next guy but im afraid I went overboard. Ah well, this is why I have dogs, theyre pretty much walking garbage disposals for meat I don’t eat.

I looked up those dry aging bags and they look pretty dope, might have to try them out if u say they work. So the beefy flavor got more intense after a few weeks in the bag? Dry aged steaks are mucho dolares at high end steakhouses, it’d be nice to buy a $70 roast and make like 7 dry aged steaks out of that that would cost like $400 at a steakhouse…
