Concur with Kbonay on Maui less the restroom experience.   Would recommend dinner at Merryman's.  We did our 25th anniversary there at sunset.   Expensive but worth it.

Tank - Sorry but this is just wrong.  The Browns had a great, respected offensive line.  Those of us old enough to remember Schafrath and Hickerson also know that Leroy Kelly stepped right in and had great years behind that line.  But Jim Brown was without a doubt the best running back ever.  Read this article written last fall:


This quote talks about their O-line:

Brown also had a historically dominant offensive line with whom to share that knowledge. Paul Brown’s long-time offensive line coach was Frederick K. (Fritz) Heisler, a studious tactician who was among the first teachers of the system that came to be known as zone blocking. In Jim Brown’s early years in Cleveland, Heisler’s line included future Hall of Fame tackle Mike McCormack and future Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll. Paul Brown was fired by Modell after the 1962 season, in part because of a player insurrection led by Jim Brown, who felt that Paul Brown’s offense had become predictable. Heisler stayed on under new coach Blanton Collier, and built the offensive line—tackles Dick Schafrath and Monte Clark, guards Wooten and Gene Hickerson and center John Morrow—that formed the foundation of the ’64 championship team. “People say Lombardi started ‘Run to Daylight,’ ” says Wooten. “Really it was Fritz Heisler. Go look at Jim’s long runs, the 50- and 60-yarders. Run to daylight, just like Lombardi’s teams, except it was Jim Brown.” In 1963, Brown rushed for 1,863 yards, breaking his own single-season record by 356 yards (albeit in 14 games, rather than 12); the record stood for a decade, until O.J. Simpson rushed for 2,003 yards. Wooten says, “Jim came out of a lot of games early in 1963. I wish we could have kept him in those games. The way we had it going, he would have rushed for 2,500 yards and nobody would ever have broken that record.”

Home Run Inn but Gino's East is also good. You can also find Lou Malnati's but it is not as good as the real thing.

Screw blue.   Screw Hairball.   And while I'm at it,  screw Ric  Flair.   Woo!

Rangefinder.   GPS is only better when you have a blind shot.  Got one for Father's Day several years ago and my GPS never saw the light of day after that  ...

I have only seen them once and it was a great show.   But the guitarist didn't quite have the mad skills of Larry Carlton.   Then when they were about to do a second encore song, Fagen  just walked off. Becker looked at the band, shrugged,  and that was it.  I'm a big fan so I that just sucked. Donald must be more than a bit eccentric.

Look for Henry to have a big game statistically next week vs. Charleston Southern.  Zeke will need to have a couple of big games the next two weeks.

Bread and butter sandwich.  Dip it in the chili and enjoy!  My school cafeteria served it this way and you could get extra bread and butter.

I also like Ritz crackers.  Not a fan of cheese in my chili.

I'll be there with the family.  I think I can pull off the black look with my black wind pants and an Alumni Association wind shirt I have.  Looks like it might get a bit chilly that night.  Could be cold up in C deck.

My first concert had REO as the warmup for Joe Walsh. Richrath was by far the better guitarist that night. His guitar licks were epic. REO just wasn't REO to me after Cronin screwed him over. RIP Gary.

The guys at Jones Fish are good but not cheap.   The advice about TSC is also good.   Try perusing Pond Boss Forum.   Lots of really good advice there.   One of the best posters is from NW Ohio.

I had a sprayed in bedliner and an UnderCover tonneau on my F-150.  The Undercover was tough (stood on it often), secure and was light enough I could take it off by myself.  I know guys who have the BakFlip and really like them.  They look really sharp installed.
