I'm glad someone brought up Dave Ramsey so soon. You're absolutely right; I don't agree with everything he says (no credit cards is a little ridiculous in this day and age) but his basic guidance has really set me and my family up for some financial stability.
Drop sets are brutal! You're right about the trash can too ;) I'll let you know how it goes with the squats soon. Thanks for the message my friend.
Just came across this thread, I am at 236 hoping to get down to below 200 for my 32nd birthday in July.
Being a fat strength coach is awful, of course people respect my knowledge but being out of breath demonstrating movements is embarrassing. So, with a little help from my friends on 11W and my local support I will be working towards this goal and helping you guys anyway I can.
While at OSU, what was your favorite bye week activity? And what was your go to campus restaurant?
That is a pretty big starting line, but then again this OSU team has been covering like crazy. This line may shift down though because of the funkiness a Friday night game provides. Still; you're right can't worry about this stuff one bit, JUST WIN BABY (ala Al Davis)
Couldn't have said it better myself, going to be a fun 2nd half of the season!
Luckily we have quite the slate of football games to watch today!
Hope this league lasts longer than the AAF for guys like this. Also, the support staff in the AAF (strength coaches, physical therapists, athletic trainers, etc.) got screwed too of course, so it's cool to have something else for them as well.
What a great f'ing question; without further ado my mascots would be:
1. Otto the Orange (Syracuse duh)- kids would think they are about to get some orange slices with their lunch instead Otto stream rolls them.
2. Purdue Pete- just so I could see his ass get kicked.
3. Captain Cane (Tulsa)- because he looks like the kind of douche mascot that hates when kids try to take pictures with him.
A great non sports podcast, although some of the guests are from the sports realm, is The Learning Leader Podcast from Ryan Hawk (AJ Hawk's brother).
I respect the hell out of Coach Fitz as a DI head coach, and he will have his team ready to go; but I feel the talent level on this year's OSU team is just too much for these mid level or below B1G teams (which unfortunately looks like everyone except Wisky and PSU).
It would be cool to throw a bone at Hawaii and play them at their place; especially since they came to OSU to play. I would also like to see Texas A&M vs Ohio State again a la 1999 Sugar Bowl rematch (haven't played again since). And not to mention we have an all-time record of 4-0 against them and I would love to beat Jimbo Fischer.
I use the app Podcast Addict on my phone, haven't had any issues with podcast my downloads including Menace2Society or the litany of 97.1 The Fan shows.
Can't wait to see what these Bucks can do in the NCAA's; my hope is that they just get out of the regionals. Losing to UNCW last year was brutal.
Was this at Riverside Cafe?
Great HBO Series! And the podcast that has been going with the tv series has been awesome too.
Exactly AnnArbors! Going to be fun to watch.
Hope these boys carry this momentum to the top!
Just amazing, Beals must've put his job on the line at the very last moment and the team has clearly responded.
Helluva run for a 7th seed. Haven't been able to follow the baseball team as much as I would've liked to this year, but I'm happy this team is on a run.
Growing up in the Dayton area there were plenty of athletes that were spectacular to watch. A few that jump out are AJ Hawk (Centerville), Marcus Freeman (Wayne), and Kurt Coleman (Northmont); but by far the most dynamic and brutally tough guy I remember watching as a kid was Jason Collier from Catholic Central. Dude was impossible to defend and had great basketball awareness. Tragically his career/life was obviously cut way too short, but just a great athlete to watch that I literally and figuratively looked up to.
I have not, I'm going to have to try that place soon, thanks for the recommendation! Any entrees that stand out to you?
Also from your inital post I believe the restaurant you are looking for is called Sear's Landing! It's on one of the inlets in and around Surf City but they have great seafood. Now with the new bridge it is a little hidden and hard to get to but from your description it sounds like Sear's. Hope this helps!
