[quote]Go to the OB and look for Downshift. He has one and is running the hell out of it.

I have to get a new car by the end of the month for work and have the choices narrowed down to another Honda Accord (ideally a 2014/15 demo) or 2014/15 VW Passat TDI SEL.
I would prefer to get a truck, but I drive a minimum of 1000 miles/month for work. A truck really isn't practical for what I ...

Yes in Zermatt in January 2000 after graduation. Gorgeous, but much more difficult skiing IMO. Not sure if it was the time of the year that made it tougher. IIRC, it was much more like skiing on ice than the powder I'm used to skiing on....

I would love to see Lovie win this game, after getting the boot in Chicago. It's not like he went 10-6 in his last season and got them to a Super Bowl.
Nope. Besides being a Bears fan, it was time for Lovie to go. ...
