realistically since this isn't our year, do we have anything on the horizon to look forward to?
what do you guys think i should expect to get out of a bunch of 1948 bowman baseball cards? most are in really good condition (considering age) but a few (like the yogi berra rookie card) are completely illegible.
Similarly i have a bunch of 1951 (maybe 52, i forget) bowman football cards almost all of them are in good condition.
I inherited them from my dad and he kept them to sell and pay off my college, and since i paid them loans off he wanted to try and pay for my kids' school with them. I've also got books of newer cards (like griffey rookies and what not) that he had.
Honestly i'm not inclined to get rid of them unless the number is really high. at this point i kind of like the story of having nearly 100 year old peices of history from my dad. (in addition to his coins and world war ii paraphernalia).

nostalgic reading all these names. Seems like yesterday i was sitting in the intercontinental hotel in the galleria in houston, creating multiple accounts and posting bullshit on JJ Huddle then coming to freehuddle to laugh about it.
Hey all. No idea if anyone remembers me. Probably haven't posted/logged-in in 10 years. Someone tonight mentioned JJ Huddle and had no idea it had shut down, which made me think of this place and what a refuge it was when that place started to go to heck. Decided to see if my log in still worked and it did! Came across this thread and thought I'd say hello.

Don’t really have any big hobbies. I do dabble in smoking meats, and also bought a Blackstone recently.
Had a boat but sold it. I’d like to get into fishing and/or golf, but kids take up too much time for that right now (plus I sucked at golf when I would play years ago).
kids definitely eat up my weekends and evenings. But friday afternoons are wide open so i golf. I fish a lot with my daughter (she's very into it) but it's not my favorite thing, i just do it because she loves to do it. I want to try fly fishing with her but haven't bit that bullet yet because my fear is that i'll love it and it'll consume my free time now. or that she'll hate it.
It's golf and Smoking food. I golf religiously every friday, try to get out more often as time permits but my friday game is fixed on the calendar. I love to smoke something every week also. but since i've been apartment living during this move i've not been able to in the last 3 months, with the exception of 4 pork butts for easter dinner with the families. Once we get moved into the new house i'm planning to have a small party and smoke a few chickens and some veggies and what not.

greeny made the point on mcafee yesterday that if rodgers retires now he's essentially choosing not playing for the jets over 60 million dollars. i kind of want to see that. selfishly because the dolphins got smoked by GB and it'll be tough to not suck with him and allen in the division.
On Mar 2, 2023:
i think after listening to that aubrey marcus podcast, and pat mcafee took a show off yesterday for something he's not talking about, that Aaron is retiring and he filmed something to announce it.
my two cents.

the KC/Cinci game was a very poorly officiated game. But the bengals made more mistakes than the chiefs so i can live with the result. I honestly think the Eagles are going to dog walk the Chiefs but who knows. KC will have some time to get healthy at WR and QB, so that may change some things.
Cinci had better invest heavily in the O-line this offseason. sign Orlando Brown, sign McGlinchey, draft 2-3 more. they have to fix that O-line if they ever want to take that next step. Its not enough to get 5 starters. they have to get 8 players there. probably need to look at coaching too because burrow was running for his life yesterday and the play call never emphasized the run at all to keep the KC defense from pinning the ears back and running.

I didn’t want to give an F…but you earned it 😁
if trey lance wouldn't have been hurt, i stand by my 49ers prediction. i was way wrong on the rams and seahawks though.

Colts - 11-5-1 (having the hindsight of yesterday)
Texans 10-6-1 (same
I still like the colts. but i'd put more money on the texans than the titans to win this division. Jags are trending up but i think they overspent on Kirk and that's going to stop them from building the team for a run which is at best 1 year away.

i think at some point the injury bug jumps up and costs the bills some games but they'll jump out to a big lead in the division and finish with the title.
Dolphins will struggle to find what they are but will get going eventually. main question is the same question as last year - what is Tua?
Patriots - Is Mac Jones good? i don't think so. he's certainly not good enough to overcome the lack of mcdaniels calling plays.
Jets - talent with no plan = failure. they are going to struggle without a good line and they have no Oline. They are going to lose a bunch of close games because the defense looks like they are going to be good.
For the most part i got this pretty close. got the records wrong, but the order of the finish was right. I also feel really good about my comments on all of the teams except miami. McDaniel is like the only person who doesn't know that the dolphins are really good at running the ball and don't play good in the secondary. As such, they pass 50 times a game, give the opponent tons of extra possessions, and get beat by teams that expose their secondary.
I'll say this, Miami got in but i feel better about where Pittsburgh is than where Miami is. Pittsburgh has their coach for sure, their QB for sure, Their defense has an identity, and they have great draft capital. Miami doesn't have any of those things but they do have a pretty big cap problem looming, so FML. lets go get beat by 26 this weekend.

What is the real estate market like out there?
240 houses went on the market in the zip code i'm looking at in the last 90 days. so it's cooling pretty rapidly. but it's been very hot there since a few of these tech companies started up big operations in OKC. like the guy that bought my old house when i moved away was a manager for AWS. he's since sold that house and moved but those type of jobs have been popping up a lot in OKC since like 2017.
not where i'm going. but yes the east and south portion of the state are quite moutainous.

Is the money worth it?
money is better, yes. but the stability (or lack thereof) at my current place of employment is the main driver here. like if you were writing a book on how to alienate and denegrate your workforce, you'd watch the management team i'm currently working under. it's the wildest thing i've ever been a part of in 16 years of working in this industry. like i've been through some severe layoffs (i personally laid of 32 people in 1 day back in 2015) and what i'm seeing now has less grace and humanity than the layoff process at my previous place of employment.

i'm on my 5th guess today and i have no fucking idea what the word could even be. i'm just guessing random letters that i haven't used until it accepts the word.
WTF, is that even a word?

I get the ripping of Canada as a poor OC and I don't think Tomlin's exactly an "X's & O's" guy but he knows how to motivate and get his teams up.
There's not a player on Pittsburgh's offense that I'd want over any of the Browns starters, including WR, yet Tomlin continues to make chicken salad out of chicken shit, on the offensive side of the ball.
I know the defense is to credit for keeping them in games but outside of Watt, Fitzpatrick and (maybe) Heyward there's not much I'd want on the defensive side of the ball either.
Tomlin should be COY this year just with what he's been able to do with a squad that's clearly in transition.
i think stefanski is out and sean payton is in for cleveland. if not then i really don't see much upside for cleveland.
