| Tiger Rant|| Outback Bowl....ESPN or ABC? - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 12/9/13 at 7:47 am|
Everything I've seen so far..has been ESPN except one time I saw ABC. It is on ESPN, right? If so, I've gotta go get me a slingbox...I gotta work on NYD and we don't get anything but the local broadcast channels..and a few news channels....
| Tiger Rant|| Wheel Route...why is it called that? - NASA_ISS_Tiger on 11/24/13 at 6:30 am|
First off a disclaimer. Yes, I played football in HS...but I was a defensive tackle and OG. Can someone explain why they call a wheel route that route? I can't see the similarity.

Got a coworker about to build a house and he asked me how big should he make the side gate entrance to his back yard if he wanted to park a boat in the back yard (he doesn't have a boat...but is considering one). I told him,since I'm not a boat owner either...I really didn't know, but I knew some s...

Any serious help is appreciated....

Anyone else think we get that many more 2:30/CBS games?
I don't like them...mainly because of the announcers..but I still believe in the "2:30 curse" too...every time we have a big game..on CBS...it's a nailbiter....

My wife's 2003 Toyota 4Runner 4WD is having an issue. I verified it as well. When you let off the accelerator the tach drops to 1K RPM even though you may be at 50-60mph...then when you accelerate..the tach doesn't respond...and the truck "jumps into gear" about 2K RPMs. I'm thinking there's a ba...

Wife and I went to go get my SA 1911 Range Officer this weekend...and another reason was for her to pick out a CC weapon. She tried many small framed 9mm's and 40 cals and liked the M&P Shield 9mm the most. It's pretty much a done deal other than us buying it...What's the OB's opinion of that weap...

I saw the thread regarding the .38 and it got me to thinking a bit. Mom qualified expert in the USN with her Beretta. She currently only has a S&W .38 special. I'd feel more comfortable with her having a weapon she qualified with even if long ago. What's the OB's opinion of that?
If the .38 h...

I'm gonna ask here as most of you guys are pretty handy kinda guys.
When you have to rip a sheet of dry wall along its long side...how do you keep it from cracking up the gypsum inside? How do you keep it from cracking when you go to put in the screws into the studs?
