This one is for Slim. Saw about the worst stack off I've seen last night. I think it's limped 4 ways, maybe 5ways. KT766r runout that is checked down by everyone till the river, so at most a $15 pot by the river. SB noob bets $15. BB woman who doesn't really get out-of-line raises to $50. Dude who just has a tendency to go off the rails (main reason I've moved to this table) raises to $100. Noob folds. BB now goes $300. Dude ships ~$650. Again, pot was $15 when we arrived on the river. SB calls and tables 66 and drags $1330 pot. Dude laments his bad luck and tables 98 before calling it a night.

They certainly seem to be the best value of that list. As much as I love this team and think they are the best this year, there is zero chance I'm laying money at 5-2 with 4 weeks left in regular season

Tough guy training is currently in full swing here at the ranch

Distance work with 80# vest
strength work with vest
interval training with vest and new 50# med ball
rock work

today SPC set a new personal best rock carry of 900' with a 106# rock

she had plenty in the tank but the goal today was 900. Gunna shoot for an even 1k on friday

highland games record for 94# rock is 1209 - should be obliterated by spc.

New Goal:
set new 126# rock record as well. Currently record stands at 575'

If any of U goofballs are in Florida Jan 18-19 come out and cheer - SPC will b buyin the beerz
Those are some insane numbers. Glgl

Had to move apartments this weekend -- was struggling with maybe 70lbs of stuff and most of that was on wheels

The casinos have all moved to more permanent locations, but I almost never go there. I hear good things about MGM. Some areas of downtown have gotten a facelift, but I am pretty much never in Detroit.

I do have a night at motor city booked in february for a Bone Thugs n Harmony concert. It will be my first time at a Detroit casino in about 8 years.

#BungleforBurrow
except the Bengals had several close games and are better than a 1 win team. variance is a mother****er

week 1 lost 21-20 @ Seattle
week 3 lost 21-17 @ Buffalo
week 5 lost 26-23 vs Arizona
week 6 lost 23-17 @ Baltimore
week 11 lost 17-10 @ Oakland
week 12 lost 16-10 vs Pittsburgh

Jets have lost 1 game by less than 1 possession, week 1 vs buffalo 17-16. all their losses are by an average of over 2 TDs: 26.4 against vs 9.8 for

despite the Bengals having 11 losses, they are playing closer games in their loses than the Jets: 26.5 against vs 14.3 for

including all games, Bengals really aren't much worse overall than the Jets
Jets average 17 ppg and allow 23.3 ppg
Bengals average 14.9 ppg and allow 24.8 ppg

It has been a total blast trying to figure out the best way to accomplish the goal. Looking at it from different angles, and creating tasks to get the job done.

The weight vest is a total game changer. These things do 1 thing. Make you tough. Seriously. If you want to get tough buy one and do stuff with it on.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement

Look I don’t want to be “The Peloton Ad Guy” anymore but the newest commercial about the vlogging 116 lb woman’s YEARLONG fitness journey to becoming a 112 lb woman who says “I didn’t realize how much this would change me” is just ri-god-damn-diculous. Come on.

the ad is ridiculous because you never buy your wife exercise equipment unless she is specifically asking for it or is into that type of lifestyle. this ad would lead us to believe the woman is not either of the above.

the ad is not ridiculous because she lost 4 pounds in a year. weight is just a number and an extremely poor measurement for anything other than, well, your weight. she could have lost 0 pounds in a year and felt way better at the end of the year vs the beginning of the year.

granted, this is a commercial for an exercise bike. a very expensive and subscription dependent exercise bike.

i honestly take more exception with the house they "live" in than the bike.

Never seen the ad, didn't click link. Just think that a 4-pound weight loss over a year is not something I would highlight when advertising a fitness machine.

unless i missed something when i did watch it, they don't mention a 4-lb weight loss at all. the only mention is "i didn't realize how much this would change me" at the end of the ad, which could mean a number of different things. hell, as someone who has been off a workout schedule for longer than i'd like to admit, just going back to the gym regularly is a difficult task. if i went consistently for a month and didn't lose a pound, the change would still be positive.

also, the first time i watched it, i didn't even realize the ad was supposed to take place over a full year. it's extremely subtle. the background in the second to last 'video' all the leaves are orange and she obv got it at xmas, so at least 3 seasons.

Garick... Is your heart made from coal this time of year?

Folks are assuming by the looks of the woman that she started out the year at ~116lbs and assume she finished the year at ~112#.

It's funny.
