I have an opportunity to move to the Tampa/St. Pete area.
Anyone live the in area now?
Overall economic climate? I would be a 1099 Employee so this is important to me. Is it a good place to work if you are self-employed?
Best areas to live? Not an OT Baller. Would look to spend $300k t...
| O-T Lounge|| Comcast v. Direct/Dish - ericberryistheman on 6/16/14 at 7:22 pm|
I currently have Comcast for Internet and TV. Bill is very high but service is pretty consistent and I am happy with choice of channels.
Question to the OT - is moving to one of the Dish services worth it? Is the service always spotty during rainstorms? What sort of deal should I ask for?

Anyone taken a Windstar Cruise before? Personally, the wife and I have never been on a cruise and it looked like a great way to see Tahiti. I don't think I would prefer the large cruise ships and this looked interesting. Thoughts?
| Food and Drink Board|| The Wife wants a Super Automatic Espresso machine - ericberryistheman on 2/16/13 at 9:51 am|
Any recommendations for a budget up to $1200?
Or should I just stick with a drip coffee maker and a semi-automatic espresso machine?...
| Outdoor Board|| Wife asked for this as her first gun - ericberryistheman on 1/9/13 at 6:02 pm|
My wife shot this recently on a team building exercise with some of the guys from work. She has decided that this should be her first gun. She says wants to shoot at the range for recreation. Home safety is a secondary motive. What says the OB?
| SEC Rant|| UT - Fla...How does this game look to everyone? - ericberryistheman on 7/4/12 at 7:47 am|
Looking for unbiased opinions. How does this game look to everyone?
I think this is the game that decides Dooley's fate. Florida is as low as they have been in a long time. Vegas has the game as a Pickem. Game is in Knoxville. Florida's offense has too many question marks. Tennessee's defen...

Are the new additions enough to pull it off? Altough they are sitting in fifth in the Western Conference right now, they are only 7 points out of first. I think they are 7-6-2 this season against the four teams ahead of them so it seems like a run to the conference finals is very likely....

I must say, I like it.
Starts off with quite a bit of vanilla and has an amazingly smooth finish. Must be the port wine barrels....

My wife bought me the Big Green Egg for Xmas. I am using it for the fifth time right now. Smoking some baby backs.
This thing rocks.
Anyone got any great tips, tricks, ideas?...
| SEC Rant|| Vols fans are out of touch - ericberryistheman on 11/26/11 at 3:26 pm|
I think Dooley can get it going and consistently win 8-10 games per year. I don't see him winning any championships.
That being said, Tennessee cannot fire Dooley right now.
I am not trying to give the coaching staff a pass but this team is bad. There is very litte talent. There is even l...

| SEC Rant|| Why all the Aggie hate? - ericberryistheman on 10/1/11 at 7:41 am|
We have let Ole Miss stay in the conference with a tradition of losing. Hell, the only thing they do right is a good picnic before every loss.
MSU is still here with their cowbells despite the fact that the their last conference title came before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
I think it w...

| SEC Rant|| UT Football Future - ericberryistheman on 8/14/11 at 4:44 pm|
I am not sure UT gets back to the football of 1995-2002 anytime soon. I am not suggesting that the academic side should be ignored but it sounds like the football program is heading in a direction where they will be recruiting players based on academics first. Is this happening at other schools in...

Seriously, can you name any single player who has mastered his position more than Peyton? Does this make him the greatest ever? This guy simply walks onto the field and puts on a clinic every week. I have been watching football since the mid 80s and thus my perspective is limited. That being sai...

My friends and I pick one away game each year to attend as a group. Can you give me some advice on parking, lodging, tailgating, bars, etc.?
We typically have 20-30 in our group. We usually bring an RV along. We love to get on campus and absorb the atmosphere. This will be our first trip to O...

Oh, Alabama fans aren’t going to be happy about this one.
But as many Tennessee fans have emailed me over the weekend, there’s a new all-time winningest team SEC football history… and the crown changed hands in the off-season of all times.
With Alabama’s forced vacation of 21 wins between 20...
| SEC Rant|| What is the best action(s) for players who are arrested? - ericberryistheman on 6/7/09 at 5:39 pm|
I think 2-4 games is a reasonable suspension for the first offense (non-violent).
The thing is that many non-athletes at schools would face student disciplinary action for this type of behavior when it happens on campus....
