Oh, just admit he's right, it doesnt have to be true, but is saves a lot on time that you could better spend doing something else than chatting with an idiot.

How many fans of those teams would gladly trade fortunes with the Yankees, Lakers, USC, Notre Dame, Duke, Cowboys and become the 800 pound gorilla instead of being its meal or sitting hungry watching the gorilla devour another victim?
If a team wins without breaking the rules, any complaints about how they did it are sour grapes and jealousy.

<quoted text>Sorry, did not know you were an NBA talent scout. She did not make any distinction based on talent. Just that they were not pros. Nowadays, by rule, they can't go straight to the NBA. So many of those players are one and done. But they now have to go to college. Based on Jess's statement, those players would be included in the group "college players". I stand by my statement.
I think the one and done thing hurts college programs -- not just with basketball. They go to college, eat up some scholarship money, play for a year, then go pro. I'd rather that scholarship money go to student athletes who want to be a part of the program for four years.

However, they're doing what the rest of us would do: Get to making the big bucks as quickly as we're allowed.

Well, my weekend has changed. Tonight was date night. We were going to make tomato soup and grilled cheese, then go shopping for new softball cleats for me, then go back home to watch Sin city (i've seen it, Nick hasn't -- awesome movie).

But I've had some issues today. Then a coworker (who sits right next to me)has been sick for a week, and her husband has had similar issues the last couple of days, and she called to tell us her dehydrated husband passed out in the bathroom and had to go to the ER (this morning, she wasn't at work yet). They said he has the Syndey flu (which isn't covered by this season's flu shots). Two bags of IV fluids, CT scan (for the huge bump on his head), bruised ribs, among other things.

given that Nick has kids, I just couldn't risk this being a serious illness then getting them sick, which he greatly appreciates. But we were really looking forward to tonight. But I'd rather be home. Alone.

With no television (thanks to Comcast, but I'll have TV sometime next week).

Have you ever tried goat cheese in tomato soup? It is really yummy, if you like goat cheese that is.

Sin City disturbed me for days. I doubt I'll ever watch it again.

My Kiddo arrives today! Going to spend a week with me, cant wait. I will be working 1/2 days (at a job I may or not have), which is ok since she is not a morning person anyway.

So if Stool says anything moronic (I know, what are the odds) and I dont catch it, please just cut and paste them into a PM to me, and I will bash her when I have the chance.

Enjoy!

FINALLY! The morning after pill is now available to children! Look for it in the Flintstones vitamin aisle!

"it seems a little weird to support giving what is essentially birth control medication to anyone who walks into a drugstore, when the same people seem to think allowing kids to keep aspirin in their high school locker in case they get a fifth period PMS headache, and selling bottled soft drinks and chocolate chip cookies in the school bookstore, are issues of national concern requiring swift and stringent legislation to prohibit. You canít have a Motrin from the school nurse, kid, and your mom canít pack your lunch, but youíre free to mosey into Walgreens, buy a drug that will force a major organ to subvert its natural programming and empty out the contents of your ladyparts into a public toilet, because thatís what America is all about."

Very interesting. From the same site:

"At any rate, itís unlikely this will stand, and very likely everyone in Washington will do everything in their power to avoid talking about it lest they reinforce any negative stereotypes going into a mid-year election. And given that the delineation between ďminorĒ and ďadultĒ is not as seemingly arbitrary as this judge suggests, the administration will likely be able to uphold their OTC guidelines. But at least this will probably cause you to have nightmares about pregnant twelve-year-olds and allergy jail."

Personally, i liked it better, when i was allowed to work more overtime and pay more taxes, just so more illegitimate and unwanted children could have government entitlements, paying the way for their upbringing.....often, and including their lengthy and expensive prison terms also, as adults.....yeah, give me those olden days of government support at the taxpayers expense.....now, get back to work.....

Asking if someone has a job sounds pugnacious and in your face. Asking if you are working has a differrnt connotation, more inquisitive and less aggressive.
Do you actually think he's capable of appreciating that (or any other) nuance?

Personally I liked it better when kids had some "Home training " on morals and ethics and integrity and character builders, but I dare say those have been pitched out the door . Where are the parents who should teach them the rights and wrongs. Society has left it up to our schools and media and books to teach sex education to our young people. How does the concept for young girls to respect their bodies and for young men to treat girls with decency and not as objects of self pleasure come across in today's society ? Society has thrown out the basics of love and marriage ... And heeded the lust and live-in as acceptable. So .. We pay the price for our own faults one way or another.
