That's hilarious. I met a sultry looking red head on campus and we met up at the bar connected to Hound Dawgs (~2005). She said she was a DJ at one of the bigger strip clubs in Columbus, which seemed cool or something. After having about 4 more than one too many she decided she wanted to stop by her friend's house at 2am. Apparently her friend was an ex-girlfriend who was living with her current boyfriend. So I got to spend an amazingly awkward half hour in their kitchen semi hanging with the guy who clearly hated the crazy stripper ex-girlfriend of his girl (yeah, he told me she danced and was not a DJ). He was relatively calm for a guy who was just woken up by his girl's ex and was watching them hash something out in his kitchen early in the morning. Somehow it still worked out for this guy that night.

I've had a variety of dates in my time before Mrs NC but the one that sticks out was a "blind date" my freshman year at OSU where I responded to a post in this Onion type campus newspaper to go on a blind date. I was selected and the girl they chose was boring as hell and looked pretty meh. I don't know if having the 3 staffers that tagged along made the date better or worse. Not only did I not talk to her after the date, their "satirical account" of the date wasn't that funny and pretty mean (especially to her). Hey, at least I got a free dinner and bowling out of it (they paid).

So odd walking around with $1000 worth of cash in your pocket.  Felt archaic and unsafe.  I still put that day's purchase on my Costco CC and deposited that stack into the ATM.

Also have a SW card as a 3rd option, though I don't use it.  It's a carryover from before Costco switched to Visa, will probably cancel it right before the next annual fee.

Have the Costco Anywhere Visa by Citi and the Marriott Visa by Chase. Both are solid and we got a big signup offer for the Marriott with 100k points. Costco has 4% on gas, 3% on travel and restaurants, 2% Costco and 1% everthing else. I really like the cash reward with the Costco card instead of having to apply it to a trip or other reward. Cash money in your pocket (literally, they give you a stack of cash). All this talk about the Chase Saphire has me interested though.

Exactly, that part of the metric lost me. It should in my opinion weigh the 3rd year players the heaviest with the 2nd and 4th year players next. Freshman should be rated the least. There are a few outliers that start as freshman, but even they are not at their peak performance yet and it often indicates a serious gap in a lineup as much as it does a young player being ahead of the curve.

Or the Falcons. Every league needs a team named the Falcons.
