The "Quick Ebola Facts" graphic at the bottom right spells it out plainly.
Not sure If I am buying what is there, especially since this guy died and multiple people have been exposed (at least reportedly).
I will say thou...
| Outdoor Board|| Had a revolver passed down to me recently... - DByrd2 on 10/3/14 at 8:52 am|
Not sure how many of you venture to the OT, but in late July and early August, I had a thread about the passing of my grandfather.
Well, he passed down two rifles, a shotgun, and a .22 revolver made by High Standard. The model name is "The Marshall". 5' barrel, 9 shots, and a squared butt. Anyone...
| Soccer Board|| Question about the CONCACAF CL... - DByrd2 on 9/24/14 at 8:24 pm|
Do MLS teams usually play this well in the group stage of this tourney? KC, D.C. United, and Portland are all on the top of their groups.
I realized watching the SKC game the other night that Guyana has 6 straight CL Championships (unless I heard the commentators wrong). Is this a surprising time...
| Music Board|| What is the board's opinion of Coheed and Cambria? - DByrd2 on 9/23/14 at 3:11 pm|
Just wondering if they are viewed favorably in this neck of the TD woods...
They have a different sound, the lead singer has a series of comic books called "The Amory Wars", and their music is based mostly (as far as I can tell) on said comic series.
Clearly, I tend to enjoy their music more t...

| Tiger Rant|| Why does everyone assume that McEvoy sucked when discussing how we won? - DByrd2 on 9/1/14 at 10:16 pm|
Every pass the kid threw seemed to be highly accurate, up until we were within 3 points and he actually had pressure on him to win the game (last 3 drives they had the ball, he did wig out a bit).
Our DBs were a big factor in their lack of a pass game. Even the announcers were saying they weren't...
| Tiger Rant|| UGH!!!! Two Fricking Days! - DByrd2 on 8/28/14 at 10:27 am|
I am on a youtube RAMPAGE! Watching old highlights... I have exhausted all of the RNolan53 and thornsx playlists involving LSU. My body is ready for LSU football!
Here's looking forward to this 4 day weekend and not remembering ANY of it outside of the game Saturday night! :cheers: :cheers:

What I linked is my prayer/hope network for my Poppy that I posted a good while back. I got the call from my mom at about 5 today that he had passed.
My Poppy was a man's man...

| Money Talk|| History of Credit Inquiries - DByrd2 on 8/9/14 at 4:16 pm|
Is there anywhere online that I can see when inquiries to my credit were made?
Backstory: Had a Vegas night in 2012 with some buddies, maxed a credit card, and destroyed my credit. I just paid that account off (it has been closed for two years now). It was close to $1700, and paid it last Monday...

Any youth coaches at this level on the MSB?
What kind of system do you use to get your playcalls in to your defense, and how many plays/fronts do you run? I have become find of the wristband system and created my own little play on it with 2 or 3 fronts that I can switch around and still have the...
| Tiger Rant|| Our safety position is LOADED with talent - DByrd2 on 7/6/14 at 10:20 am|
But after watching the Spring Game full highlights (basically every play they ran), I am really high on Rickey Jefferson. He makes quick decisions and hits like a mack truck. I really like his aggressive nature, and should the defensive line have trouble, he can step up and stop the bleeding during ...
| Tiger Rant|| Nice article on Kevin Minter in Arizona - DByrd2 on 6/23/14 at 2:51 pm|
Not bad. Glad he is getting his shot in the middle of that great defense. Should help him settle in with him having PP and TM behind him....

I am looking at setting up a fishing tournament (catfish)for my base and local community, and I was wondering what methods of catch verification are out there.
The tournament is going to be a 24-hr setup, with an evening weigh-in. Fish anywhere you like, but you have to be back for weigh-ins, or ...

Two years ago I was told I had allergy induced asthma (highly allergic to dust and mold), diagnosed after going to the ER twice in a span of three nights having severe tightness in my chest. I went through the MEB process, and it was determined that a yearly Review In Lieu Of (RILO) Med Board was ne...

Has anyone been to one of his public speaking sessions? He is speaking today at my base, and I am pretty stoked to go see him speak. Anyone able to share an experience or vouch for how good he is at what he does (which I can only imagine he is fantastic)?...

What is the thought on Dr. Carson as a person AND a politician?
I am wondering how both Democrats and Republicans feel about him and his chances at the White House, as well as overall electability and likeability?
Basically, do you like him and think he can make a serious political run? If yo...

So I was one of those people that called soccer a diva sport. I watched Everton against someone earlier this year, and I now am very excited to watch these matches every weekend.
I have two items I need help with...
