| SEC Rant|| re: Are offensive linemen headed for 400 pounds? - PJinAtl on 1/26/15 at 9:49 am|
I would think that it is a rare bodytype/frame that can safely hold 400 pounds. Add to that the ability to safely carry that weight and still be athletic as a lineman needs to be, you may find a few here and there but it will most likely never become the norm....

I remember it well. I was a junior in HS. We had easily a foot+ of snow in Atlanta, and with the wind we had drifts 3 feet tall. Luckily we knew it was coming and were all at the house.
I also remember Atlanta's infamous SnowJam '82. We had gone to my great aunt's funeral and the snow started...

If I remember correctly, when the first album was released John Rich and Richie McDonald shared lead singer duties - John on some songs, Richie on the others. All of the singles released were the ones featuring Richie, and he became the face of the band, so John moved on/was let go as they didn't n...

I could be wrong, but I have always thought the reason the sound system was so bad is because the main speakers (maybe only speakers) are mounted in the south endzone tower. If this is true, I wonder...

I don't know what to think about this. I am leaning towards Kurt has some mental issues - either just naturally or as a result of concussions from wrecks during his racing career. Maybe the anger issues he had in the past were an early indicator.
If not, then she has some serious issues.
