| Fantasy Sports Board|| thoughts on pierre thomas - KG6 on 9/16/14 at 7:15 am|
My bench is getting beat up. With Charles likely out and Moreno out, I'm left with Demarco Murray and a bunch of garbage. Any chance Pierre Thomas is worth throwing in the flex spot now that Ingram is out? My receiving core isn't so hot right now either (a lot of questionables), so it's not like I...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lineup help - KG6 on 9/12/14 at 9:20 am|
I'm starting two out of these three. WR and Flex. Who would you go with.
Desean Jackson @ Jax
Michael Floyd @ NYG
Knowshon Moreno @Buf
I like Knowshon, but that will force me to choose between Floyd and Jackson. I'm torn between those two. I feel like Jackson can go off at any time, but...
| Money Talk|| Is an expensive MBA worth it? - KG6 on 8/1/14 at 9:08 am|
I've got an engineering degree from LSU, and I really don't think I'd be making any more money with a more highly regarded engineering school, so I would say the ROI on my degree is pretty good and going to a private school would not have been worth it.
I've now got several years of experience an...
| Money Talk|| Purchasing a home while temporarily having one salary - KG6 on 7/28/14 at 12:16 pm|
What's the standard process for buying a home due to a job relocation when my wife will not have a job lined up yet. We're having a child at the same time, so she won't have the ability to get a job until her maternity leave is up. Are we stuck with getting a loan off of just my salary?
| Outdoor Board|| Your go to knots for 100+ lb leader? - KG6 on 7/22/14 at 1:16 pm|
Does anyone actually tie knots on their heavier duty leaders? Or do you just stick with the crimps? I was getting some stuff ready for this weekend and realized I didn't have any crimps (haven't regularly offshore fished in a few years). So ,I started looking into knots I could tie out of curiosi...
| O-T Lounge|| Where to live in Houston - KG6 on 7/20/14 at 10:59 am|
Looks like I'll be making the move in the next two months. I'll be working out of two offices. One in west Houston and one on the North side. I'll have a real estate agent, but wanted to start looking around online. I'm vaguely familiar with the layout of Houston. Where should I start looking? Wa...
| Tech Board|| Good camera deal? - KG6 on 7/9/14 at 5:44 pm|
Having a kid soon and wanted a decent camera. Guy at work was selling a 6 month old Cannon rebel t3i. Came with a cannon 55-250 lens, 18-55 lens, and a 'Nifty Fifty' lens. Also came with an SD card and bag. Paid 600. Kind of an impulse buy. Don't know much about cameras, but quick research made ...
| O-T Lounge|| Monogrammed dress shirts. Pretentious and tacky or not? - KG6 on 7/7/14 at 8:46 pm|
I've always liked initials monogrammed on the pocket or cuff of a button down. Mostly in business casual type settings. But at the same time, I can see how it comes off tacky. What says the OT?...
| Outdoor Board|| electrician issue - KG6 on 6/30/14 at 7:10 pm|
I built my parents a cabinet for an outdoor television. Today they had electricity and speaker wires run by an electrician. Am I overreacting, or is this a really crappy job? I cant see how the guy thought this looked okay.
| Money Talk|| Emergency fund/ student loans/ kid on the way - KG6 on 5/28/14 at 4:52 pm|
My wife has significant student loans. They are split up with two lenders, Sallie Mae and Aspire. The Sallie Mae loans are around 33k and are somehow split in two with one having 9% and one being 7.25%. The Aspire loans are significant (in the 40's) as well, but the interest rate is a little (alt...

Just sold my boat and will be putting the money away. But at the end of the year, we will be moving and having our first child. I want the money available if we can't sell our house for what we are asking or need a little safety cash if anything else comes up. I have a 2% high yield checking accou...
| O-T Lounge|| 3d ultrasound - KG6 on 5/14/14 at 10:10 pm|
So we had an ultrasound to confirm the sex of our first born today. It was a boy which we were pretty confident about already from previous ultrasounds. But today they did the 3d ultrasound. Not a fan :lol:. That shite does not come out as clear as the commercials and advertisements. Does anyone el...
| Outdoor Board|| Another kayak recommendation thread - KG6 on 5/11/14 at 11:51 am|
Put my flats boat up for sale because I'm going to be having a kid at the end of the summer and I know I'm not going to be using it a lot. Would feel terrible having the boat sit up not being used. Didn't expect a lot of attention at the price I had it and planned to fish all summer and lower the p...

I fished out of Falgout Canal Marina for the first time this weekend. I've fished every bayou in the Houma area before but there. There were a lot of people this weekend. Saw a lot of things I've never seen before.
I've never seen so many people fly by camps with boats in the water. Had people ...
| Outdoor Board|| Reel Maintenence - KG6 on 4/21/14 at 10:34 am|
How far do take down your reels to clean them yourself? I've been lightly spraying some Lew's baitcasters with fresh water after each use in salt water. I bought them about three months ago, and they're already not as smooth and make a little noise every once and a while. Thinking of tearing them...
| Outdoor Board|| Think I just got an amazing deal - KG6 on 4/17/14 at 12:40 pm|
Just stopped at Academy for lunch. They had Shimano Sustain 2500FG spinning reels listed at $99. I can't find them for less than $250 anywhere on line. I'm not super familiar with them, is there some model out there that is built shitty :dunno:. I got two. Seems like there may have been a pric...
| O-T Lounge|| picking a name for your kid - KG6 on 4/2/14 at 9:18 pm|
How do you make this decision? Even when I find names I like, it's hard to say "that's definitely the name I want my child to have for the rest of their life". We're finding the gender soon and we're going to have to eventually make a decision. ...
| Money Talk|| Downpayment on house or payoff student loans - KG6 on 3/25/14 at 7:27 pm|
May be moving for work soon. We put 20% down on the house I bought before I got married. Now that I'm married my wife's student loans are part of our monthly expenses. I have no idea how much PMI will actually cost per month, but I was wondering if it would be worth using down payment money plus sav...

I'm having a kid in September and looking to eventually sell my boat after the summer. Looking to post it now to see if I can get a good price for it. What are some good [u]free[/u] sites to post it. I know LA sportsman, but other than that I'm not really sure. Boattrader wants $50 for a two wee...
