bragging time.

DS was one of four grade six boys to make his middle school's JV basketball team. Pretty proud of him.

Couldn't you dress reasonable warm and just head outside for a few minutes if you are cold? Or am I missing something. Do you not have a fleece jacket and a long sleeve shirt down there? Never been to TN so really have no idea how cold it gets, if at all. My head is starting to hurt.

Well the ice jackets are longer then normal jackets, if you want to do the ice slides you must wear them, I have hoodies, thermals and jackets but these are heavy duty jackets and generally it doesn't get cold enough to justify owning a heavy heavy jacket plus I want to slide darn it!!!!!

Woo-hoo! Congratulations.

We don't have school teams, just youth travel teams where I live. Really depressing since I think the school teams are more structured and better for them.

I was thinking the same thing. As big as the school is, I know he has a JV team and I was wondering why he only had 9 players. I know the school that DW coaches cheerleading for always dresses as many JV players as they can if both teams aren't playing that night.

And you could even bring an old cup back, so it was really just $5 cover and 25 cent beer. Coincidentally, I haven't touched Old Style since I graduated.

Had another place that was $5 cover and $2 pitchers of any domestic draft on Wednesday nights with free wings from 7 - 8 pm too. We went there all the time until they closed up shop at the end of my Junior year. I realize we ate a lot of wings and drank a lot of beer, but I didn't realize it was that much.
There was a place that did "Buck a Cup Night." A dollar for the cup and a dollar to refill it. That was the same night I discovered kamikazes. Next day was my worst hangover.

Its a great way to pass the winter but the runs here are painfully short. I'm probably wait a year or two before taking the kids.

I do agree that you don't need a mercy rule. They need to terminate coaches that have no compassion or regard for the situation and hire good coaches with common sense and morals as discussed. Good coaches can find a solution to allow both sides to learn and become better players and people. It really is shameful.
Agreed. And ESPN doesn't help by posting these scores on Sports Center. You're just stoking an egomaniac's ego and encouraging the next idiot.

A jacket for 9 above?

All you need is a lined sweatshirt and a long sleeve shirt.

I'd be sliding as well. Have a fun time. It's funny that you have ice slides in TN and we don't have anything like that up here. Unless you count skiing in the mountains. Not really ice sliding is it?

We do plenty of ice sliding here... usually down hills in our cars & trucks.

This coming from the man from Minnesota haha jk, the blue jackets are longer and you cannot go down the ice slides, I own a thin work jacket a few hoodies and a leather jacket, none would be good for the event and I would like to slide so owning a proper jacket doesn't matter lol

The closest one to you I'd assume is the gaylord national , and I am assuming that in D.C. But I don't know where the others are besides Nashville , Texas and Orlando

And yet you continue to give CJ grief for not living in New England.
