We survived, people. The NFL offseason is officially over -- at least for an eighth of the league.  

Recommended Posts

I hope you guys don't mind if I put the thread back on the rails

 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- As the Denver Broncos became the first full team to report for training camp Wednesday, president of football operations/general manager John Elway made it clear that he hopes Joe Flacco can break the team's disappointing run at quarterback.

 

The Broncos have used four starting quarterbacks over the past two seasons -- Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, Brock Osweiler and Case Keenum -- and have finished with back-to-back seasons of double-digit losses for the first time since 1966 and 1967. Not one of those four quarterbacks is on the current roster for the Broncos, who haven't finished above 19th in passing yardage in any of the past three seasons.

 

We're not alone in past QB disappointments !!!

How much longer will Elway remain in charge of Operations?

Maybe Elway’s job as the Broncos' general manager and vice president of football operations is as difficult and all-consuming as his 15-year quest to win a Super Bowl as a player with the Broncos after three trips to the title game. The bottom line, as Elway approaches the decade mark as a team executive, is that the franchise he has called home for more than 30 years is on wobbly legs, and he has been unable to steady it.

Summer blows. Way too hot for me. I love the fall and spring the best. I even like winter more than summer.

 

But it depends on where you live and your personal preferences. I'd rather be cold than hot.

Bingo.

nah. i'll take a film of sweat on me at all times over one single winter day.

 

i  worked outdoors for my dads family construction business for 8 years right out of school and i would take baking on a roof any day of the week over trying to work outdoors in the cold. there is nothing more physically and mentally draining than working out in freezing temps.

 

so being in northwest PA and dealing with the long lake effect winters, you will NEVER see me complain about the heat..... but like you said. personal preference. so i wont judge you..... just like i wouldn't judge somebody based off what they dip their wings in(ranch ALL DAY)……. 🤣

we have 2 days coming up starting tomorrow forecast for low to mid 90's.....there will be beers and there will be some sort of body of water(probably just the kids slip n' slide) and i will soak up every last drop of that heat. 😂

 

the only exception here is that i absolutely love a crisp dry snow day at the ralph...….. but i love getting sun burnt there in September more. LOL.

i'm outside from today until sunday.  we have a patio party tonight, then going up to the thousand islands for a canadian/american festival and some boating.  it's going to feel perfect.  i love the fall too, but i just know what's coming from january to may, and i hate it.

See, in Jersey, the sun disappears from like October to March. I like the sun. Ergo, summer for the win

I can’t be mad at you for that.

 

However, food for thought—not that I agree with all of the reasoning, but still, some folks who spend much of the year without sun, not just a few weeks, are able to boast being the “happiest” nations on Earth:

Investing in a tanning salon there must be the way to pad for retirement?

Good genes.    My tan lasts almost to January. 

 

If you feel the need (I never have) ....  Tanning beds and sprays.  Or go on a winter Holiday somewhere warm

I guess if you're of Italian or Greek descent, you are naturally inclined to having a darker complexion.  I can see guidos supplementing this with sprays and tanning beds.
