My wife and I were just in Asheville last weekend and were able to hit 15 breweries in 72 hours.  I highly recommend half pours or flights instead of pints.  It can get ugly quick.

I second the Biscuit Head reviews above.  It is worth waiting in line.

We enjoyed the Biltmore.  Being in town for 4 days, you need a little non drinking time and it was a good diversion.

Another good diversion is the Pinball Museum.  It's setup like your parent's basement and you can play all ou want for $15.

Have Fun!

Just sold my 58” Panasonic plasma to a guy on CL. Sticker on the back said 2006. 
Loved the picture but it gave off a lot of heat. 
Didn’t realize how heavy it was. Surprised it stayed up on the wall for 14 years!

I bought a 75” LG at Costco for 850. Couldn’t justify the 2000 diff for a 65 OLED.

My general comment is - if you are staying at an all-inclusive resort, or something similar you are pretty safe as long as you are on the property.

We have been to Mexico many times on both coasts.  Normally we booked our own condo or house and went native.  Meaning eating locally like street vendor food, doing our own sight seeing and driving, etc.

But we are taking a break from Mexico.  The condo we rented a few times in Playa del Carmen is a block away form a mass shooting at the Blue Parrot.  This was a popular tourist bar near the beach, but is now closed. 

But the final straw was the bombing of the Playa to Cozumel ferry.  It was bombed at the dock in Playa.  Too close for comfort, so we have been going other places for the last couple of seasons.

Can't overstate how much Rush helped me get through my awkward years.  I could just lose myself in their music for hours, and are still my go to today.

Neal even helped me connect with my father.  It seemed like he hated the music and most of the things I liked.  He had been a drummer as a kid and heard the live YYZ solo one night.  It was the first time we agreed on anything.  

I've never been sad for a celebrity or musician death before Neil.

Its not the NCAA that would fine them. It’s the CFP. All the conferences and schools signed a contract with the CFP to participate when it was established.  They could absolutely have fines and other terms to punish schools for not fulfilling media access responsibilities. Maybe the punishment is 2 extra hours at another event and not money, who knows. 

CFP is paying out $6 million per school. They will have terms like this in the contract.

Went to a fancy shindig a few years ago and got there late.  Was surprised there were still huge bowls of shrimp filled to the brim.

As I was loading up a plate I noticed a lot of abandoned shrimp plates laying around  

Then I went looking for cocktail sauce. None. Anywhere. 

Took two bites of plain shrimp and set my plate down. Thousands of dollars of shrimp went to waste cause someone forgot $50 worth of cocktail sauce.  

Never under estimate the importance of condiments. 
 

Comment 13 Dec 2019

Sure they can.  Media requirements are probably part of the CFP agreements the conferences and schools signed.

Fines or punishments may be negligible at this stage in the process, but they likely exist.

As far as his excuse, both things could be true.  He could have had a flight issue while he was recruiting, decided he couldn't make the presser, and decided to stay on the road. 

But what really happened was Day told CJ that he was so important to OSU, that he would risk a fine to meet with him one-on-one. :)

Since Tress took over as head coach in 2001, we as diehard Buckeyes fans have been fortunate to witness the longest period of sustained excellence in Ohio State football history.
 

Didn’t Woody win five national championships in the same time frame?

Comment 05 Dec 2019

Let's see, they had the record, the stats and the polls all pointing to them as a top 4 team before the playoff.  I think you are suing sime hindsight on this one.

By what measure would you have kept them out?  Would you have put 2-loss UGA in instead?

Using the same criteria, would you keep out Clemson this year since they haven't beaten anybody?

Comment 04 Dec 2019

This same crap has been posted here by OSU fans for years.

Thank you for highlighting how silly everyone looks when they complain about the committee and their conspiracies.

The committee has ended up with the right 4 teams so far every year, regardless of the mid season rankings and any lack of transparency.

Comment 01 Dec 2019

If it's Utah, we need to play here in ATL.

Make Dabo, Coach O and the Utes travel farther than the bucks.

Plus I'm here in ATL and I'm selfish.

Comment 01 Dec 2019

Playoff tix in ATL are going to be a really tough get.  Especially with Clemson/LSU/UGA as potential teams.

Hopefully Vettix can help you out.

MB stadium is awesome, so best of luck! 

Comment 29 Nov 2019

Nope.

For the record, a 1-loss P5 CCG has NEVER been left out in favor of a 1-loss team that failed to win a CCG

There were 3 undefeated teams and 2 1-loss champions.  We were left out for another 1-loss champion, not a non-champion.

Comment 27 Nov 2019

Yeah I wasn't sure why/how they were preseason #1.

ESPN's ACC conspiracy.  Don't you know they own the ACC network!

Comment 25 Nov 2019

It's been on our DVR for almost 10 years.

We used to watch it Sunday night of M week, but since my son is in college now, we watch it friday night before the game.

My family doesn't need an update, as we live in the Glory of the last 20 years: every.  single.  day.

Comment 23 Nov 2019

Someone finally gets it. 
there will never be excitement about 8 vs 9. 
but with 5 major conferences and a team or two worthy of a wildcard birth the CFP generates way more interest when trying to squeeze into a 4 game format. 

Comment 20 Nov 2019

Alabama got a pass?  They won the SEC 4 of the 5 years of the playoffs.  Not sure I call that a pass, sounds like they deserved to be in.

As far as 2017, the one year they didn't win the CCG, the next best team was a 2 loss OSU.  So did we deserve a pass that year over a team that looked better than us?

I understand your frustration with the Bama Love Fest in the media, but look at the facts.  I don't think they are going to get a pass this year.

Comment 12 Nov 2019

Weather is supposed to be in the 30's on Saturday.  So depending on the age of your kids, you may want to rethink your plan.

Adding cold, 'boring' time to schedule will likely shorten their attention span during the game.

Not that you need to see the second half anyway. :)

Comment 11 Nov 2019

Would a 13-0 Baylor be any more underwhelming than a 13-0 Clemson this year?

I still can't see an undefeated champ left out.

Bama is not the media darling this year, so if you believe the conspiracies that ESPN drives the final 4 - Bama is out.
