  • SPORTS MOMENT: I'm a highschool senior visiting a friend at OSU who just started his freshman year. I go to the OSU - Iowa game, when Iowa was #1. We're in the south stands. Byars, Carter, Pepper Johnson, Spielman. Rained quite a bit. Spielman gets a 4th qtr interception. We run down onto the field afterwards, patting the football players on their shoulderpadst. Goalpost comes down right on top of us. I actually have a hand on the goalpost as we carry it out of the stadium and down to Papa Joes. (I had no clue where I was at the time). I knew where I would spend the next 4 years of my life after that night.

Like Barfolomew, we put in a fiberglass pool last year as well.  First of all, don't do concrete/gunite.  It's super expensive, and are algae magnets.  Fiberglass is super low maintenance, and should last pretty much forever.  If you want a deep end (more than 5 feet), your options are limited with fiberglass.  Fiberglass pools are premade in certain shapes, and he have to get the longest one in order to get a deep end (8 feet).  We spent the extra $ and got it.  Vinyl pools are a lot cheaper, and come with a liner.  Liners can tear, will fade in the sun, and need to be replaced every 6-7 years.  But you can get deeper ends without having to have such a long pool.  We went with a salt system for our pool and absolutely love it.  Your skin is super soft coming out of the pool.  As recommended by Barfolomew, do your research for the pros and cons of each pool.  It's really about how much your willing to spend, and personal preference.  I'd be more than happy to help if you have any questions in the future.

I live in Cincinnati. Wouldn't mind trying it out myself. Maker's is my mom's absolute favorite bourbon, and I think that would make a great birthday present for her.

They had a moment of silence for Afroduck at 7:00 yesterday evening at Mirror Lake.  Anybody know how it went?

I'm sure he's up in animal heaven with the Toronto racoon as well.

Never in a million years would I have thought I'd decide to buy an icecube tray after reading an 11W article.

Okay, I've read the last 2 hurryups, and still can't see where Birm said we had no interest in Daniels.  I don't even see him mentioned.  I see that Swenson was a definite no, but not Daniels.  Where the heck am I missing it?
