Quote from woman interviewed by CBS Evening News as she purchases a new flat screen TV at BestBuy.
Really? No discretionary income?
This is part of the problem in this country. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start: Lamar Miller or Mendenhall - HurricaneDunc on 11/28/13 at 7:06 pm|
Miller vs Jets
Mendenhall vs Eagles
Terrible matchup for Miller, although with Thomas out he's the only RB now. I'm afraid that he still won't put up more than 20 yards and the Dolphins will abandon the run.
Mendenhall is terrible, but Arizona loves him. He did get a TD last week.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start at TE: Gonzo or Fleener - HurricaneDunc on 11/20/13 at 5:56 am|
Gonzalez vs Atl or Fleener vs Arizona. Standard league. Thoughts?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Miles Austin coming back from injury - HurricaneDunc on 11/18/13 at 9:21 pm|
Worth a waiver flier? Will he actually step up to the #2 slot?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Week 12 Trade: Gonzo for D Williams - HurricaneDunc on 11/18/13 at 7:35 pm|
I am hit hard by the byes next week. My only two RBs not on bye are Lamar Miller and Mendenhall. I've got Fleener who I can start in place of Gonzo. The other guy and I have agreed to make this a one week trade only, so I'll have Gonzo back for the rest of the season.
I don't like the RBBC situa...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| AJ Green - where are you? - HurricaneDunc on 11/17/13 at 2:37 pm|
I'm assuming he's sitting on his arse maybe reading the tiger rant since he only has 7 yards today. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Flex: Mendenhall, Kenny Stills, Brian Hartline? - HurricaneDunc on 11/17/13 at 10:03 am|
I play in a 12 team standard league. I've got James Jones riding the bench with the QB situation at GB.
I like Mendenhall's matchup against the Jags.
Hartline is playing against SD.
Stills is at home against 49ers.
Any thoughts? FWIW I'm leaning Mendenhall...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Brian Hartline or Kenny Stills? - HurricaneDunc on 11/10/13 at 9:23 am|
Hartline may have a good game with Revia covering Wallace. Stills has more upside against Dallas secondary, but is a big boom or bust type player. Thoughts?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Question - HurricaneDunc on 11/6/13 at 7:08 pm|
So I'll be cooking a gumbo on Saturday before the big game. I've prepared a turkey gumbo before using leftover Thanksgiving turkey, but never a "typical" chicken and sausage gumbo.
My question revolves around the chicken. Clearly I need both the meat and a broth. I'd really prefer to cook my o...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start - Lamar Miller or Joseph Randle? - HurricaneDunc on 10/27/13 at 10:48 am|
Both will be splitting time. Miller is playing NE. Randle is playing Det. ...

Dude has been MIA this entire game...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trent Richardson for Tony Gonzalez - HurricaneDunc on 10/16/13 at 3:59 pm|
I'm weak at TE - have Jared Cook and Garrett Graham. At RB, I'd be left with Shady, Lamar Miller, Joseph Randle and Mendenhall.
I'm not much of a believer in Trent's upside anymore. Thoughts?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade Offer: DeSean Jackson for T Rich - HurricaneDunc on 10/9/13 at 6:18 am|
12 team standard
Andrew Luck - QB
DeMaryius Thomas - WR
James Jones - WR
Shady - RB
T Rich - RB
Lamar Miller - RB
Garrett Graham - TE
Mendenhall - RB
Pierre Thomas - RB
Brian Hartline - WR
Thoughts? I feel like I'm weak at WR. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Desean Jackson for T Rich - update - HurricaneDunc on 10/8/13 at 7:29 pm|
Eta: He countered with Desean Jackson instead of Cruz. Good trade with Vick out?
Standard league. 12 team.
Richardson's stock up with Bradshaw out for good, but Brown is already stealing TDs from him. And he can barely run more than 2 yards a carry.
I'm weak on WR, and still have Shady, ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| To start or sit Trent Richardson - HurricaneDunc on 9/22/13 at 11:22 am|
Can he really perform against SF with such limited knowledge of the play book? Seems like at best he'll be relegated to limited 1st and 2nd down non passing plays. Thoughts?
Eta: I'm starting Mendenhall or Lamar Miller in his place this week...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Anyone starting T Rich this week? - HurricaneDunc on 9/20/13 at 8:33 pm|
Shady is my RB1. Trying to decide between T Rich, Mendenhall, Lamar Miller and Pierre Thomas. I'd like to put one in the RB2 slot and one in the flex. I'm nervous against the niners Trent will be a bust.
| Political Talk|| Republicans don't know how to frame an argument - HurricaneDunc on 9/20/13 at 6:55 pm|
Was listening to NPR on the way home, and there was an interview with some lady in the House Republican leadership. The reporter asked her multiple times why Republicans would risk shutting down the government to defund the ACA. All she could do was say "Republicans don't want that".
I'm not sure...
| Help Board|| Order of boards in mobile vs full site versions - HurricaneDunc on 9/20/13 at 6:24 am|
The fantasy sports board is the best example (maybe the only?) where the placement of the link is significantly different. Would it make more sense to have both versions list the boards in the same order?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Mendenhall or Rueben Randle? - HurricaneDunc on 9/15/13 at 11:16 am|
I've also got Lance Moore and Pierre Thomas on the bench in my standard league. I'm thinking Randle will have a big game since the Giants have no running game and it will likely become a shoot out. Just not sure if he can repeat last week's performance. Thoughts?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade: Lamar Miller for Dwayne Bowe - HurricaneDunc on 9/11/13 at 6:12 pm|
My RBs are McCoy, T Rich, Pierre Thomas, Lamar and Mendenhall.
My WRs are Demariyus Thomas, Lance Moore, Brian Hartline and Emmanuel Sanders.
I feel pretty confident with my RB squad but I'm lacking a solid WR2.
Thoughts? I have no clue on Bowe's outlook?...
| Food and Drink Board|| In Baton Rouge for one night - recs? - HurricaneDunc on 9/10/13 at 4:47 pm|
I'm here for the night doing recruiting. Prefer somewhere closer to campus or downtown - maybe as far as corporate blvd area. I ate Chime's last week, but not opposed to going back.
Where would you go?
Eta: will be dining solo
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Julian Edelman - waiver pick up? - HurricaneDunc on 9/9/13 at 9:15 pm|
Will he continue his success in the first game for the remainder of the year? It seemed like he got most of the targets on Sunday.
He's available on waivers in my league. I'd love to pick him up and drop Sudfield. Any thoughts?
Also, my league uses a waiver budget so need to decide how much o...

It's been too long since I've read a good fiction book. I'm considering starting a series or at least something more than a 250 page thriller.
I've read Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth and really enjoyed it. Anyone read Fall of Giants? Or any other good fiction recommendations?...

We have one of those large wooden swingsets in our backyard. I've noticed the base of the swingset (where it meets the grass) has been getting damaged by the weed eater. Other than complaining to my lawn guys, what can I do so that the trimmer line won't keep digging into the wood? Is there some sor...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| What are the thoughts on Trent Richardson? - HurricaneDunc on 7/31/13 at 10:14 pm|
I've got him as a potential keeper in a 12 team auction league at $35 ($200 total budget). He performed well last year and he's got some upside, but the Browns are terrible. And his value at $35 seems marginal.
Any thoughts on him this year? Worth holding as my keeper?...
| Money Talk|| Insurance Companies - big brand or low cost provider? - HurricaneDunc on 6/29/13 at 5:12 pm|
Just received renewal notices for my home and auto and they've increased way too much (Liberty Mutual). Home owner's is up more than 25% and auto is up about 13%. I called to ask and of course got the run around (weather in your area, increases for everyone, etc.). In fact, my home owner's has incr...

I'm typically just a salt and pepper type of guy when it comes to grilling steaks. However occasionally I enjoy marinating a steak and today I've got two decent strips waiting to be grilled.
Any recommendations on a good marinade you've used before?...

With the LSU game only on espn3, I'm considering picking up one so that I can broadcast from my iPad. So other than the random sporting event that I want to show on my TV, I don't really see a whole lot of other uses.
My Blueray and TV already have apps for Hulu and Netflix. So otherwise this th...
