Examples of ESPN being a SJW - Ramblin Wreck
Reading about ESPN's financial woes reminded me some of the examples of them ruining my escape from politics by being political. Here are a few I can think of - Caitlyn Jenner getting courage award Some of their broadcast people refusing to say Washington "Redskins" Extensive coverage of M...

re: Questions concerning commercial lease for retail space - Ramblin Wreck
I own commercial investment property and am always looking at investment properties for sale. I typically don't see a lot of NNN leases outside of national tenants that are for sale. As an owner I would love to have a NNN because it is no risk and makes the property easier to sell. I'll share a c...

[quote]Let me just say this, the decision to go to Texas was a lot to do with JBE.[/quote] While it is somewhat entertaining to read comments of you all bashing your own state, I know people in the industry and familiar with these types of projects. I will say the decision didn't have anything t...

re: Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama - Ramblin Wreck
I've been to a couple of the motor cycle races and the Grand Am and Indy car weekend a couple of years ago. The Indy cars were great, but I also enjoyed the Lamborghini, Mercedes, Corvettes, and Porsche cars in their classes. There are races on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The museum is well wor...

Preseason rankings by Orlando Sentinel has the number 130 team as - Ramblin Wreck
UAB Interesting story. After a two year absence and raising over $40 million they are back. 47 players were signed last year due to a NCAA waiver. Lots of second chance players and JUCO's. How many wins do you predict for the preseason #130 team? I say they surprise everyone and win 7 ...

re: Buying a Vacation Condo - Ramblin Wreck
The cap rate on a residential rental is higher, but there can be other benefits to a beach condo. It really needs to be something you just want to do. My wife is not interested at all in the commercial real estate I own, but the condo is something she enjoys keeping up with. We both enjoy finding...

re: Buying a Vacation Condo - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]One thing to consider about 1 and 2 bedroom condos[/quote] True, there is also very little annual income difference between a one bedroom and a two bedroom. Brett Robinson shares rental income with us at our annual meetings. There is usually less than $1000 difference. The best bang for...

[quote]If you don't mind me asking, how often do you get to use the place (if at all) and how is the cashflow each month? [/quote] I replied with the cash flow. It stays empty pretty much during November and December, so we can use it anytime then. The weather is perfect in November, low 70's a...
