    How is everybody today?

    Man this weather is killing me!!
    All I do is sit around inside my house and eat.
    Last night we did go out to see a movie. We saw Waiting, it was freaking funny!!!

    So... does anybody have anything slighly interesting on tap for today?

    I've been eating too much lately too. Hit the gym for the first time in a while last night, time to start hitting the weights again.

    Hello. Had a hockey game last night. We won 6-2. I had three more goals, giving me 18 in eight games. Other teams are keying on me, and I am getting frikkin MUGGED every time I touch the puck. It pisses me off. I wish I was as good an MTB'er as I am a deck hockey player.

    I need to get my keester back to the gym.

    I wish we had a deck hockey league around here.

    Do people take it real seriously?

    It's cold, and it's supposed to rain again. Football game at 2:30 at Loomis Chaffee, which should be a breeze. JV football sucks, the games are easy. This weekend after another football game on Saturday, I am heading up to Northampton, Mass to go see my sister for a little while. PSAT on Saturday, not excited about that either, maybe I can top my score of 1100 this time. Its still cold!

    The players take it seriously. They wouldn't shell out $90 for 12 games if they weren't serious about playing. It is a rec league though, and for the most part the players have good sportsmanship and fights are rare.

    Way too much. Something like $70/mo 6 months out of the year. The place I go to has all kinds of classes, day care and a bunch of other services that I would never use but they are the closest and if I had to fight traffic to go to the other ones in town I would just never go.

    Is there a time of year they tend to run deals?

    The YMCA around here is equally as expensive as the actual gyms.
    However they have a pool and basketball courts.

    Mornin stosh, all

    I had a basketball game last night.. supposedly we played one of the top teams from last year and we spanked them pretty bad 72 - 58. It helps that we picked up a 6-7 center and a 65 power forward this year. In the ppast years it was me at 6'3" and my friend 6'4" playing those positions. This puts me in the small forward spot where i can light it up. it gives me a green light to shoot, so thats what i did. I dropped 22 last night with 4 trey's. It felt good to finally play with a team who really knows how to play.. all of us played HS/college ball.
    the weather is killing me too, I get home and dont feel like doing anything. I am also going to go back to the gym today after taking the whole summer off. looking forward to the soreness already!!!
    well enjoy the day!!

    Thats funny that there are even fights to begin with.

    See I enjoy playing stuff like that but I hate when people get all uptight about missing a goal or something. Thats probably why I like the solitary sport of Mtn Biking.

    This is what the YMCA costs. I think Aubrey and I can register as a family instead of paying individually. That would save us $276 a year.


    Adult: $528/yr., or $44/monthly bank or credit card draft, plus $75 building fee

    Family: $780/yr., or $65/monthly bank or credit card draft, plus $75 building fee

    I meant to say it is $70 a month. I am a member for 6 months out of the year. To get the deal I have to pay a year in advance.

    sounds like its worth it.. The y's in brooklyn suck.. dirty , over run , older equiptment .. so its not worth it for me. They opened one in Staten Island a few years back that is awesome.. it sounds more like yours is.. with a pool , b-ball courts etc. If they had one like that nearby id go to it

    Morning. Slow night last night. Went to our SMBA meeting and sat through argument after argument. This was our first meeting after the election of new officers last month and the old regime is having a hard time letting go of the reigns. It's stuff like that that makes me want to skip "the process" all together and just ride. But, I did get to have a few Pale Ales and a yummy burger so that was good. Got home around 9, and watched the Sox/Angels game and the went to bed. Still raining here so nothing on tap for tonight except watching LOST!! :thumb:

    She's a standard poodle and she likes to go thru the garbage and be in the way. She barks at the door when he leaves etc.

    I guess not being a big fan of animals might be part of the reason I'm not a fan of animals in the workplace.

    My guess would be summer being not many people would be joining when its nice outside


    The Y is one of the most pricey gyms around here, but you get a pool and can go to any of the other Y's

    That's not so bad for gym membership. I think I pay $60 a month (wife and me) at the student rec center. Our prices just went up when they finished remodelling it, but we did get a 50m pool (plus new weight rooms, spinning bikes and all that) plus another 25m pool with a diving well. I think my wife paid another $45 for a semester of spin classes.

    Sports Illustrated seemed to like it a lot

    My landlords always sign for my packages because they are always home. I often wonder what they think.

    Anyway I've noticed lately that I purchase very few items from normal brick and mortar stores.
