Re: This might be a dumb question, but...

I feel kind of guilty now that I'm retired. My renters do all the work, provide all the equipment, and take all the financial risk. Meanwhile I cash the rent check. I've already told them I'll lower the rent a little. Guess I'm not really cut out to be a landlord. Better watch out before you help t...

Re: Committed Recruits Update Thread

I learned today that the Lucius family built a massive indoor arena on their property in Grant "just for their two kids". Insane. The article says the boys are 10 and 11. The Recruits page here says they are both coming in in 2022. I assume the article got it wrong? The article was written in 2014....

Re: Travel

My wife and I don't travel all that much, but our recent stay in Grand Cayman was really fantastic. If you go, try to stay anywhere on 7 mile beach. You will never experience so much soft white sand anywhere else. And the deep sea fishing, the snorkeling and scuba diving rivals anywhere else in the ...

Re: Got Beer?

It was good to see Summit EPA for sale this past weekend at the Gopher games, but I was a little disappointed that it was not kept cold enough. Also 16 OZ cans for $10.50 was a bit rich.

Boy the Swedish music scene sure has changed since the 70's, not necessarily for the better, IMO.

Re: Gopher Football 2019

Personally I think it's too early to speculate on bowl games. Yes, based on their record to date you can narrow it down, but there are still many possibilities. Any of the team's remaining opponents are capable of derailing the team's most optimistic hopes, so right now their focus needs to solely b...

Re: Women's hockey

Anyone besides me concerned about this coming weekend's series vs. Ohio State? Yes on paper we should be the stronger team and prevail, but might the Buckeyes be looking to 'right the ship' at home after a somewhat disappointing start? That, and might the Gophers be looking ahead to their huge serie...

Re: Niagara (Oct. 18/19)

Yeah, I chuckled a bit after realizing it didn't say what I initially thought. For the record, I also chuckle when they give away weiners. They used to give away "a year's supply of sausages". I would always duck for fear they would zoom in and declare me as the "winner". It wouldn't have been so b...
