I don't remember if I had mentioned this before, but 8 seems logistically perfect for keeping the NY6 bowls intact and not giving any team the advantage of a real home game. 

I do not see true home games for the higher seeds as logical. All of the playoffs are in domes or warm weather locales where weather (mostly) does not come in to play. Having a snow bowl in Columbus or wherever would be funny but would likely not be a great on field product.

Continue with the 6 bowl rotation for the semi finals, and the remaining 4 each year are the quarterfinal sites. There is a good mix of locations (Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Pasadena, Glendale, New Orleans) to keep it geographically fair and inclusive for 1 or 2 west coast teams as well as the southern and eastern teams. Ensure that a Group of 5 representative is in each year to ensure they get their share of the NY6 revenue. I am not sure about dates, I haven't thought about that enough.

Championship continues to rotate to various cities as it does now.

Rooting for the Nats. My buddy is the social media manager for them and I also have some family from the area. Been shadow following them for a while now. So pumped.

Calorie count is down because appetite is down, so I'm not over eating and am satisfied by my smaller meals. I work out 5-7 days a week along with hooping and swimming here and there.

Working on cutting down to my optimal weight of 185-188. Caught myself around 198-202 in the last couple months. Using a fat burning supplement called Animal Cuts which has really helped curb my appetite. Mainly used by body builders but is available for regular dudes too. Drink tons of water and keeps me focused and not thinking about food. Did a lot of research beforehand knowing that stuff like this can mess with your body. No ill effects and have dropped to 193.6 as of this morning. Really has helped me cut out late night snacking before I go to bed too.

Also:

  • Lowe Post (NBA junkie that really goes into analysis and covers a wide range of topics)
  • Marvel Studios News (I am an MCU nerd!)
  • Woj Pod (Woj also brings on good guests for interviews for the NBA, it's very infrequent. He just had Beilein on, the new Cavs coach and former TTUN coach)

  • Lights Camera Barstool (Pop culture - covers movies and television and a lot of fast food - again not too on brand for Barstool stuff)
  • Binge Mode (Ringer pod - Harry Potter and GOT specifically were covered in depth and it was so great)
  • The Rewatchables (Ringer pod - covers great rewatchable videos from like the last 20-30 years - not a fan of Simmons though)
  • Around the Horn and PTI recordings - I listen to catch up on national stories if I find anything interesting at the time

Don't get me wrong - I'm only defending OSU's uniform changes. The blackout is dumb and never works. You have to have rare fanbases to really get a full "color out" and frankly, ours isn't concerned with doing that. It would never happen but if they really wanted to push the blackout they'd hand out 105k black shirts at the entrances. But that would cost too much lol.

I get that a lot of you aren't fans. But the uniforms aren't for you. It is a recruiting tool. A lot of high schoolers look at teams and judge partially by how they present themselves. All black is a fashion thing that looks great, especially in photos. Same goes for the all greys from PSU 2 years ago. Recruits loooove having those edited photos in the alternate uniforms when they make their choice.

I do collect bobbleheads. Go to any game I can to get my hands on them. Especially minor league games that have weird designs and themes. Probably have over 200 sitting on shelves at home and have a few bobblehead games planned for the next couple weeks. 

Also started doing Funko Pops specifically from the MCU a little over a year ago but had to stop spending so much money. So I've slowed down on that front. That collection is around 75 and will probably grow again when I have some money to spend near the holidays.

I'm just using what he said in regards to neighbors. I can be friends and communicate with people regardless of their leanings, ya know? I understand the idea behind what may be voted upon and who runs the city, county, etc. I just don't think anyone should be hesitant to move somewhere if they voted for Clinton or Trump because of how their neighbors voted compared to them.
