I saw the Georgia Satellites before they blew up. Granted they never had prolonged success. I saw them several times. One show was The Satellites, Jason and The Scorchers, and Dash at Tips. That was a hell of show.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Ruling on SELA catcher tossing ball to his dugout - NBR_Exile on 2/20/14 at 2:31 pm|
Not exactly. I know I am splitting hairs, but you don't call time in baseball. You ask for it from the ump and he calls for a dead ball. Otherwise, the ball is live and the play goes on. Watch when a batter asks for time at the plate. The request is not always granted....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ruling on SELA catcher tossing ball to his dugout - NBR_Exile on 2/20/14 at 2:29 pm|
A dead ball. Play can only be stopped by the umpire. He doesn't call time, he stops play. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ruling on SELA catcher tossing ball to his dugout - NBR_Exile on 2/20/14 at 2:24 pm|
You can call time all you want. Only the umpire can grant the stoppage of play. You can't call TIME and make every one stop like basketball or football....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Ruling on SELA catcher tossing ball to his dugout - NBR_Exile on 2/20/14 at 7:38 am|
There is no timeout in baseball. Once the ball is thrown out of play the play stops but the runners can advance to the next base. ...

Looking at Will Cover rules for new car buying, it mentions "dealer cost". I looked at the normal car buying sites but have come up blank on the dealer cost.
Any ideas where this information can be found?...

I recently discovered that capital gains for 2013 can be tax free. If your adjusted taxable income is in the 15% tax bracket, you will pay no tax on gains up to the 15% percent limit of 72,500.

We pay 5-5.50 for a meal. Snacks are extra. We go to a small private school so we expect to pay more. No government assistance. There are separate pools for meals and snacks. We can limit the amount of snacks by not funding that pool. Once one of the pools reaches a set amount it levels up automatic...
