  1. I'm not defending Keyshawn's evaluation of Allen. I'm just saying that, generally speaking, I like Keyshawn and I enjoy listening to him. I don't find any of what he says "stupid," even though I may not agree with everything. I find him funny, entertaining, smart and knowledgeable. A hell of a lot better than listening to Greenberg and/or Wingo - that's for sure.
  2. I actually like Keyshawn and enjoy listening to him. I also do not understand his reluctance with regard to acknowledging that Allen is a top NFL QB. I remember Golic having the same reluctance when it came to Mahomes. It doesn't bother me, though. Keyshawn calls it like he sees it and this is how he sees it. To each his own, I guess. I still like the guy.
  3. "It is time to get on your knees and acknowledge that you are Josh Allen's b!tch!" That is pure gold.
  4. His hiring will baffle my mind forever. He was never qualified to be hired for any NFL HC job.
  5. This is pretty much where I am. If the Ravens were down Lamar and otherwise full-strength, if Lamar could go, he'd have played. But the Ravens were hit by the injury bug in historical fashion. Risking long-term injury for an unlikely playoff run would have been a bad decision. Plus, I think a 100% Huntley is better than a 60% Jackson, anyway.
  6. Yep. He and Brady were our daddies for too many years. Had we won back to back division titles while they were intact, that would be something. Wasn't even close to the case. Time to move on.
  7. But not nearly as fraudulent as Timmy being a MLB player. And even less fraudulent as Timmy being a holier than thou child of god (when the cameras are rolling).
  8. When I bought my first house back in 2002, I bought an old (OLD!) Toro snowblower for like $100. Thing was a tank. I brought it out to clear some of the wet, heavy, slushy stuff and it kept getting clogged. My dumb ass went to clear the chute with my hand and I got nailed pretty good. Lucky I didn't break some fingers, let alone lose any. Bloodied them up really good and they were a little chewed. All four fingers. The thumb was spared. But I was young and resilient, so I went inside and ran them under cold water, then put four band aids on and finished the driveway. Explaining why I had bandaids on all of my fingers was a little embarrassing when I went to work. That was a painful lesson and I've never come close to making that mistake again. My snowblower (same one I have now) didn't start last year when we got 36 inches of snow. I had to call someone to plow. They destroyed my lawn and completely uprooted a bush. Never again.
  9. The only thing missing from this gem is, "Hear me out ..." at the beginning.
  10. I'm thankful to all of the great input ... much appreciated and I hope more keeps coming. It's also worth mentioning that most of the advice in this thread has a) come unsolicited, b) been irrelevant to the topic and c) come from someone who DOESN'T EVEN OWN A FU*KING SNOWBLOWER. This place is just priceless sometmes.
  11. That's the thing. The whole, "they don't make them the way they used to," adage is what I'm living in real life now. I sold my old Troy Bilt that I had for 11 years problem free and bought a new one. Exact same model. File it under shoulda, coulda, woulda, I guess. But now I need something dependable that's new.
  12. He's not a troll or a dick. He's just a fan of a team we all hate. No biggie.
  13. I'm leaning toward Cub Cadet. All of the models in my price range have the electric start. I've always had electric start over the years, but have rarely had to use it. Even this current snowblower started this morning with a couple pulls.
  14. I had a Troy Bilt Storm 2410 for 11 years and it was fantastic. I bought a new one two years ago ... same exact make and model ... and it has been nothing but a ***** headache since I got it. Without going into detail about the troubles it's given me, I am ready to just cut my losses and buy a new machine. I am in the $1000-$1200 range. 24 or 26 inches will do. Anything over 200cc. I know this limits me, pretty much, to Craftsman, Toro, Ariens and Cub Cadet. Looking for recommendations based on personal experience. Thanks!
  15. “I thought I threw the ball away,” Allen said. “He made an unbelievable play, but I got hit and was going back to the huddle for what I think was third down, and everybody was celebrating. I had no idea what was going on. “Still, when I sat down (on the bench) I go, ‘What happened?’ Nobody could tell me an explanation.” Once Allen saw a replay on the video scoreboard, he said his reaction was “Holy crap. I did not mean for that to happen.” https://theathletic.com/3072748/2022/01/16/josh-allen-and-the-bills-bully-and-bury-the-patriots-in-a-playoff-victory-buffalo-fans-will-crow-about-for-years-to-come/?source=dailyemail&campaign=601983
  16. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/199512300buf.htm Bernie Kosar had a 100% completion percentage in that game.
  17. Thank you all for the kind and funny words! My birthday was perfect. Hibachi with my love and 7 of our close friends, followed by gathering at two of our friends' house for post-dinner drinks and the Bills game. They have a little bar down in the basement, so we spent the evening drinking, playing pool and watching the Bills destroy the Patriots. It doesn't get much better than that! GO BEELS!!!!!!!
  18. Hi, my name is Gugny, and I have the mindset of a 13 year old boy. HI, GUGNY!!!
  19. The Stewart's chain of convenience stores (northeastern NY and southwestern VT) still have the pump, then pay option. The workers inside have security cameras and are also alerted when someone is pumping prior to paying. They will use the intercom and say, "WELCOME TO STEWARTS PUMP 5!" just to let the customer know that they're watching. There is a local Sunoco station that incentivizes using cash (although not pre-pay) by dropping the price/gallon by 10 cents if you don't use your card.
