Why thank you!  I'll gladly drive my Volvo to this country club!  (Actually, I don't have a Volvo, but anyhow...)

I mean, I guess I'll allow it.

Ha!  But Vovlos are the quintessential "liberal" mode of transportation, aren't they?  Maybe a Prius would be better...:lol:

LOL all jokes aside, am I the only one who hates being behind people who drive a Prius? the worst, right?

No.  first off i hate the design of them.  Second, they just always go slow.  always.  did i mention that they are ugly cars?  If not let me state unequivocally they are ugly and all their drivers drive slow and terribly.

@yoda is an asset I’d rather not trade but given the limited value I get with the others I needed to put someone valuable on the me trading block.

i think the one thing that might unite this forum and all of the country is the hate for Priuses.  Is that the correct spelling of the plural for Prius?  Is it Priusi?  

 

Goddammit.  Even more reason to hate them.

If I remember my Latin, you usually change -us to -i. So Prii.

I'm....trade bait?  Me?  What have i don to fall from coach's graces?  I'm here every day looking at tape and studying the opponent.  Sure I might not lay down a 4.45 40 anymore but I can run a nice corner route and my hands are still soft.  Jeez.  I'm still in my prime

LOL!!  Well, I've never been behind one as far as I know.  I've got a Honda Civic, myself.  One thing about Priuses (is that the correct plural?) that always seems a bit spooky to me is that you cannot hear them approaching, they just suddenly "appear".  Seriously.  I guess it's when the engine is using just the electrical energy and not gas, or something like that!

Actually, on a somewhat related note to driving behind someone.  I find it annoying when in the left turn lane, the person in front of you (and 1st in line to turn) refuses to get out there into the lane so that they can at least turn right as the light changes.  Then you have to sit and wait for the next light cycle, and they still refuse to put their nose out there...unless by chance there's enough space that they finally turn while the light is green!  Likewise, when people behind you honk incessantly when you don't turn right on red despite a big sign that clearly says "NO TURN ON RED"!!

How is yoda more valuable?  He wrote a damn script to make copy/pasting that much easier.  He doesn't even put in the effort anymore.  Mails it in.

Made me think of that line from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", where Indy's father (Sean Connery) said "...but in the Latin alphabet, Jehova starts with an I"!!

For a moment, I though these were your draft picks for next winter's reaper list.  The Reaper going after Don S.???

Hey bud...it’s not you, it’s me. Sure, you’re not as sharp or fast off the block as you used to be, and if it were up to me I’d let ya fade into the unbearable heat of a Mid-Atlantic sunset on your own terms, but you know the bosses—they’re all on my ass about “upgrades”.

I think we both know Therm is a game changer. His fast twitch measurables are the best on the board. He doesn’t miss on jokes. He respects the reaper too. 

I wanted you to hear it from me first. New York has some good people. Thanks for the memories.

Like that Office episode where Andy sneaks up behind Dwight and pins him against the bushes in the parking lot. Angela was never worth all that IMO

Trade me to a damn contender then.  Not some cellar dwelling team that has no hope of ever being good.  Boston traded Ray Bourque to COL to let him win a championship.  If not then I'll just retire and go into business being similar to Stephen A Smith.  You might not want that because of how critical i can be of the Reaper GM actions and ability to field a team each season.

You are just bitter I don't sit quietly after each game and coach up the young-uns so they don't get the Reapers wrath with every missed storm.

And don't encourage him.  He is a GM on a sucky team called Mid-Atlantic Snowflakes and he's just trying to drum up ticket sales.  We call this the Snyder.

Raises hand here! The one thing I hate about people who drive them is that they are supposed to be conserving yes? Most of them drive like bats out of hell weaving in and out of traffic.

Now see, this is what I was worried about. You’re hurt and you’re lashing out. First, get your facts right. Under my stewardship we’re the envy of the board. 

Your numbers are down dude. When was the last time you got +10 laugh reactions? Why aren’t your maps of our snowless winters bringing as much beauty and technical skill as @mappy’s? You’re all over the place. One day you’re steady moderating the threads and the next you’re tearing up the locker room telling @showmethesnow and half our right field go to hell. 

You get paid too much for this kind of performance. I need stars, not spare parts. Now, if you’re willing to get in shape and be my guy again I need to see some improvement. 

I love ya man but I need you off the couch and out of the pantry and in training camp.

This is totally unfair.  How can I be expected to put up elite type numbers every year?  I've been playing hurt most of the time too.  Chuck blew out a knee and never got back to all-pro level and I don't see his name listed.  Or did you already Turk him?

As far as reactions, I don't keep stats.  Let those nerds that sit upstairs look at daily QBO, AO, NAO, S&P, Ps and Qs do that.  I'm a feels guy.  When sun angle is pressing on you you know to change a slant route to a buttonhook.  When warm nose blitzes you know to be the hot read and keep YAC down.

I got the Ji's and the PD3s and Brick Tamlands all barking in my ear and even other fans coming in and yelling HOW MUCH FOR CARBONDALE??!!! Its like 4th and 20 and down 8 points and you are on your own 30 with Ralph Wiggum as your O-line.  See what play you can come up with to get to the end zone.  

Y'all have elevated @mappy to all star but behind the scenes it was and has been me helping her out.  @showmethesnow went off the training regimen and so once in a while the linesman has to throw the flag on unsportsman like behavior.

Yes, i'm saying I'm player, ref, line coach and coordinator.  Ever hear of two way players?  I go to bat for both sides if needed.  Hello, Randy.  i'm the consummate professional.

What I'm saying is that I'm your ace closer out of the bullpen.  I might have lost some velocity but I got a spitter of two i can still get across the plate.

I'm the goalie who can stand on his head and turn a series around

I'm your hail mary or hook and ladder or swinging gate(Jim Zorn baby!!!!)

You need an 40ft birdie with multiple breaks, I'm your guy.

If you need that last bag sunk for cornhole then get me.
