    September Discobs Thread

    i'm ready for a bit of a respite. the humidity has been anti-ideal.

    this heat has been tolerable, but the humidity has been off the chain. this is a legitimate heat wave that is reminiscent of what you'd experience in late june. what's helping at the moment is this blanton's (really good bourbon). that and russell's reserve single barrel are at the top of my list right now, in that price range. in other news, i think 4 day work weeks should be every other week. i'm all in for summer friday's. i'd say every week, but that's pushing it and if i actually loved my job (i like my job, but i don't love my job), then i would probably have a different opinion lol.

    forecast bust today. not a single drop so far. that's 2 weekends in a row. maybe later on some showers will develop, but up to this point (aside from the humidity) it turned out to be a pretty nice day.

    great sport, but they need to cut out the injury embellishments. it's obnoxious. otherwise, i like watching some soccer.

    i played football with friends, but basketball has been my jam since middle school. soccer was my first love, but i got ktfo going for a header and started to lose interest after that lol. i'm a basketball junkie. the wiz actually have a nice, balanced squad this year...finally. as for the meatheads in football...i can't disagree. i still love watching football on sundays, but i think it's a sport that doesn't need to be meathead'ish. i really think football can be played with better pace and less contact, and that's why i think a new league could really come out of nowhere and pressure the nfl, unlike other sports. i think goodell has done a subpar job making the game more flow'y. i also think players should be able to kneel if they want, but that's another story. long story short, football is a great sport and it's bigger than the nfl (they need to be careful with the path they choose because i truly think they could find themselves at some point competing with another league).

    ok, these flash flood watches are officially getting annoying. it rained today, but not much and not for long. i'm not thrilled with how the last few days were forecasted. yes, there were storms around, but come on now.

    my sister and bro in law drove through that storm on 64 towards the beach around 5-6pm yesterday. she said it was one of the worst storms she's ever been through. in a bit of a severe weather drought here. would like to see some fireworks today.

    this occurs all over football. it's a sport where you either hit or get hit. there's a lot of different motivational techniques used. this sounds over the top for sure, but don't be surprised if more stories start coming out.

    that might actually be more than what i received and i was driving all over moco yesterday. i imagine noaa will be having some lessons learned about this one. i don't care how others did, if i'm under a flash flood watch and the most i get is sprinkles, then that's a problem. the sky didn't look ripe at all for storms here yesterday. it looked disorganized and when that happens for some reason i feel like we have a difficult time with precip.

    the injuries are one of the things i was referring to in my nfl rant. there's a reason some of the best athletes are no longer choosing sports like the nfl. why do that when you need to split salary with 50-something other players, your career might end early, and you may end up with longterm issues when you retire. i'm generalizing here and i do love football, but there's just a lot wrong with the sport right now, imo. i'm pretty certain peds are rampant as well. guys are bigger, faster, but so is everyone else and the more weight you carry, the greater chance of an injury. maybe i'd feel better if the redskins were actually good again lol. sucks for guice, though. to get drafted and lose a season in your first game is tough. he showed some explosiveness as well, which is something the skins needed out of the backfield. they actually need playmakers in general. running back is just one of those brutal positions in the nfl.

    total bust here. was expecting more coverage. at least some folks did well. in other news, i can't believe it's already aug 9. summers go too fast. gotta enjoy the next month of pool time while we have it...and maybe sprinkled in with some severe...or even strong.

    jan '16 ruined snow for me. it was the goat of blizzards (well, maybe a toss up with '96). i'm kinda turning into a severe weather dude. i'll always love a good snowstorm, but damn if these winters here aren't becoming hit/miss. we need more decades like the 80s. would be nice if this upcoming winter is a standard dec/jan/feb snowy. don't care for early or late season snows. just make it happen when it's supposed to.

    i'm probably wishcasting. bmore seems more in the game, but they're so spotty. this has been an underwhelming severe year so far.
