That's why the KLove, TT, and Kyrie contracts are all pretty awesome and friendly to the Cavs.

Yep.  They might look problematic now, but in 2018 the Cavs can acquire top level talent in free agency while still having a core of Irving, Love, TT and LBJ.  There would not be a more attractive destination at that point.

Yeah.  16-year old boys always listen to their parents.  Obviously the parents never taught him.

That and if they do somehow land Durant they would more than likely lose Barnes, Bogut and Livingston.  That would leave them pretty thin.

I'm just trying to teach her not to be so damn picky.

As it relates to spanking, I think there is a time and a place for it but some people don't get the difference.  I never imagined I would have felt as awful as I did when I did it.  And I barely even did it, honestly.

Time out works well.  We have a chair in the corner of the room that she's spent some time in.  The terrible twos really suck ass.

It could work with a sign and trade but the Cavs would have to ship Love probably and I don't think they're willing to do that.  I also don't think they should do that.

People are going to say to trade Love but the truth is that he's under 30 and has a lot of good basketball left.  They're setup right now to make a run at the title for at least the next 3 years.  Don't piss that away by getting D-Wade as a rental.

He would have to take an extremely significant paycut to bring guys in so I'd say that's a big 'no'.

He also should be the highest paid player in basketball and the Cavs should always make that a priority.

I've only spanked my kid once and that was because she punched my wife in the face.  I felt pretty awful about it.

But just yesterday she refused to eat anything at the dinner table.  So she sat there for an hour until she took a bite.  She then looked at me and said, "Daddy, down now?".  It was too damn cute but I think she got it.

This is actually news?  This is the point we've come to.  Where a kid staying in a tent for being an asshole is making headlines.

I picked up a bottle of Russell's Reserve at the Wild Turkey distillery.  I've had a few glasses and I have to say it's an enjoyable mid-priced bourbon.

The review here is pretty spot on.  I like to have that bite on the front end with a smooth finish.  This one is kind of opposite of that.  There's quite a bite to finish.

Most things in DC center around drinking

Haha.  I have to agree.  Lived in the area for a couple years now and the only things I can think to do are go drinking in Old Town Alexandria or to Arlington for more drinking.  There's also drinking in Georgetown.  Plus drinking at DC Brau Brewery.  Just drinking, really.

My suggestion would be not to go but since you're obligated, make sure they at least see the National Mall (Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Wall etc).  They're 15 so they have some sense of knowledge as it pertains to American History and they will appreciate that.  The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History is also a good and within walking distance of the Mall. 

Where are you staying?

Be sure to get the best damn burger you'll ever have at Crazee Burger.  http://crazeeburger.com/

GasLamp is awesome and make sure you see the Padres there as well. 

Try surfing at least once.

Go to Stone Brewery.

If you're into hiking, go to Lake Poway and visit the Potato Chip Rock.

Big fan of ETL.  IMO, it's comparable to Basil Hayden's.  I found some at the liquor store here in Maryland for the low price of 58 dollars.  It's 40 bucks at my in-laws place in Bardstown, KY.

Spot on review of this pretty solid, mid-level bourbon.  Will this be up every morning for 68 days?
