Checking in - Middle Tennessee State grad (baseball player not good enough to cut it in the SEC). LSU is my football "team", though I root for Tennessee when they're playing anyone besides LSU, and Tennessee basketball is my "team".
I couldn't care less if MTSU wins or loses in any sport besides ...

I thought it was a very solid movie. Wife and I went and saw it this past weekend. Without giving spoilers, I thought the ending kind of left us to assume what happens next, not to expect a third one. The wife disagreed though and thinks there will be a 3rd one....

| O-T Lounge|| re: What is the size of your ideal home for a family of 4? - Shenanigans on 3/6/14 at 4:12 pm|
I have 2350 right now with my family of 3. It's 4 bedrooms with the 4th being upstairs and used as a man cave that will turn into a play room when the little dude gets a little older.
So if we had a 2nd kid, I wouldn't have an extra bedroom for my parents or any friends who visit to stay in.

| Money Talk|| re: Lower salary w/stock options versus higher salary no stock options - Shenanigans on 2/20/14 at 10:34 am|
I'd take the cash. You'd have to stay with the company for 4 years to get all of those 100 SAR's, and 5 years to get the other 50. It's great to think you will be with the company for that long, but in this day and age, I don't think it's realistic.
Plus, you could use the additional salary to bu...
| Money Talk|| re: Estimated Closing Costs + Up Front PMI Costs - Shenanigans on 2/20/14 at 10:30 am|
If I were in your situation, I'd negotiate the sales price and make the seller pay closing costs. That's pretty customary in TN, not sure about real estate trends in LA. Seller only cares about their net, and you get to finance that difference over the mortgage term. For example if you agree to a sa...

Most 11-12 year olds don't have big enough hands to throw a change up effectively, nor the ability to keep arm speed the same. At least I didn't, and I went on to pitch and start on the weekend for a D1 school in college (not trying to brag, though I'm sure I'll get called out for that as opposed to...

In college, I dipped all different brands and flavors. Being poor, that usually meant Grizzly but I would splurge on Skoal Mint or Spearmint.
Ever since Skoal came out with the "Xtra", I've been on that (Skoal Xtra Mint Long Cut). Honestly can't tell the difference in that and the original long c...
