Turks and Caicos is fantastic, and St. John's probably has the nicest beach I've ever been on. We stayed on St. Thomas and took a day trip over there. Also, as noted above, I absolutely loved Grand Cayman. 

Actually in the process of booking something for our anniversary in a couple of months. DR, Costa Rica, and Belize are looking like the lead horses right now. I appreciate this thread, good job OP.

Yes, 100%. Just rented a condo there for 10 days in December. It was phenomenal. If you're doing this, I highly recommend the fresh fish market. Most of the high end restaurants send a guy there every morning, so you can do the same thing and save yourself $100/meal.

There are a ton of zero fee balance transfer credit cards out there. If you have ok credit, apply, transfer the balance, stick the card in your toilet (tank, don't flush it), and pay it down. 

If you don't have ok credit, which is possible if you're being charged that interest rate (which often have escalation factors tied to late payments), you might be better off transferring to a fixed rate loan. But only if you are disciplined enough not to rack up a new CC bill before you pay off the mortgage on the old one.

Jason, you guys run a top flight organization, and all of the content is both free and premium. Give yourselves a huge pat on the back. We owe you.

Wasn't Birm there? I thought he was the one who made that statement. He is the Lord of Whispers, after all.

Nah, that's just vanity. The helmet stickers are concession enough to vanity.

You know that this commentariat is never going to tolerate a plug and play app. It won't do all of the magical things that "we" all demand, and people will wig out. 

I actually like the lack of app. You have to want it, at least a bit. Get your scroll finger on a workout regime. Keeps the riffraff to a tolerable minimum.

The repeated number usage will never fail to confuse him to high heaven, too. It's maybe my favorite subplot of every game we watch. When will he first say something about "that guy plays offense/defense?!?!?!"

Definitely agree with the Father-In-Law getting a pass. Mine adopted the Buckeyes because of me, gets legit pissed off when they lose, but couldn't name a guy outside of Barret or Elliot. He kept asking where #9 was because our WRs couldn't get open vs MSU. Sorry pops, he's on your favorite NFL team doing nothing (he's from NY).

Frequenting this site has fundamentally changed the way I watch/enjoy football. The X's and O's has made me watch everything but the ball on most plays. The recruiting coverage has made me more knowledgeable about college football as a whole, because I am familiar with all of the big names that eventually choose another school. And the lunatic fringe actually helps me calm down when things go wrong. Ramzy has made me a better bartender. 3m has made me fatter with those recipes. Mostly, you guys have introduced me to gifs that I would otherwise have never seen.

At least Braxton Miller got to throw a pass that year.
