re: Do you ever feel like you’ve wasted your life? - SpringBokCock
At 33, yes. I spent my twenties and early thirties messing around, working in food service, not getting married, not owning a house, poor credit, no kids, etc. Then I went to law school, got married, started a family. Now, thirty years later, I am successful and happy. Had I continued on t...

re: I need some recommendations for books on Time Travel. - SpringBokCock
Time and Again by Jack Finney. He also wrote invasion of the body snatchers. Guy travels back from NYC modern times (1970’s when book was written) to the 1880’s. It’s an immersive story really capturing his sense of wonder at truly arriving in the past. It is even illustrated with photos and ...

re: Battle of Verdun - SpringBokCock
It was a five day battle. He told me on the way to the woods they were told to camp. They found some nice soft ground and started digging in. Got a horrible smell and realized they were digging into German graves. On the first day of the battle, they were walking through the woods in loose ...

re: Battle of Verdun - SpringBokCock
My grandfather fought for the South African Brigade at Delville Wood (part of the Somme) in 1916; Arras in 1917; and Ypres in 1918. He was wounded each time; evacuated to England and sent back. After the third wound (two bullets in the left arm) he was declared “unfit for further service.” He was...

re: Just gonna leave this here .... - SpringBokCock
I may go back to my 1999 mindset. No hope of winning, so nothing to worry about. It was a lot more fun than watching our slow inexorable decline since Spurrier checked out. I still blame the decline on Brad Lawing. ...

re: What year was the best for the SEC as a conference that you can remember. - SpringBokCock
Yep. Because the SEC is better when South Carolina is good. And better with Stephen Garcia. ...

re: South Africa train trip: Ravos Rail or Blue Train? - SpringBokCock
I’ve also done both. Agree Rovos Rail is better. Only catch is they take longer. They stop for excursions in Kimberley and Majiesfontein. Rovos had an open platform at the end of the train where you could sit in the open and watch Africa go by. Departing from their Pretoria station is...

re: Upscale all inclusive Caribbean destination - SpringBokCock
Big Ambergris Cay fits the bill, although very pricy. For a more reasonable alternative, Try one of their other properties in the Turks and Caicos collection. ...

re: Travel in 2021: how do you picture it? - SpringBokCock
I booked an Amazing Race type trip (with multiple stops) from July 20-August 7. One leg is Lusaka, Zambia to Rome connecting through Dubai on Emirates. Got an email from Emirates last Monday advising the Dubai-Rome connection is canceled and rebooking us the next day. Emirates apparently expect...

re: Just realized why Ole Miss's defense was so bad these past years - SpringBokCock
Deke was the problem. He let Clowney freelance and line up wherever he wanted. Production dropped in half. No discipline on defense was the beginning of Spurrier’s downfall. What might have been if only Brad Lawing had kept his pants on. ...

re: What Caribbean Islands Are Open for U.S. Tourists? - SpringBokCock
Turks and Caicos. We’re headed there Christmas Day - assuming we pass our Covid tests. We were booked in the Beachhouse. They shut down because of Covid so they upgraded us to Ambergris Cay. Pretty dang pumped as this is a major upgrade. ...

re: McKenzie Milton - SpringBokCock
Not giving opportunity to the talented QB’s on your roster is a sure fire way to end up with no QB’s. See 2020 Georgia Bulldogs. ...

re: Your 89 year old mother asks you to be tested for Covid before visiting - SpringBokCock
Knowing two people in separate families who lost parents to Covid caught from their grandchildren, no doubt you get tested. Honestly, it’s a dick move to even post the question, let alone risk your mother’s life in real life. Imagine how you’ll feel if she dies because you infected her even if...

re: So South Carolina. Beamer? - SpringBokCock
Beamer does appear to be the front runner. I am good with him, although my dream team would be for Chadwell to become OC. It’s a step down in title, but a step up in money and program size. And if he can make it work for 2-3 years, then he’s in the driver’s seat for a top P5 gig. ...

re: Louisville AD says Satterfield won’t interview with South Carolina - SpringBokCock
Napier as HBC. Wonder if Chadwell would consider being OC? Would triple his salary even if he has to step back from being a head coach. Might only have him for 2-3 years as he would surely open himself up to a p5 job if we are successful. ...
