  3. Conversation overheard at the grocery this morning. Young Boy: "Dad, which baseball team has lost more games this year, the Reds or the Cardinals?" Father: "The Cardinals have lost more." Young Boy: "Wow. So the Cardinals are even bigger losers than the Reds?" Father: "Yep. I guess they are."

  4. Good type of busy. Got a promotion at work, plus moved into a new house in December. January-March was filled with unpacking crap, replacing lights, installing fans, installing shelves and other organizational stuff, assembling furniture, reinstalling all my network and home automation, etc etc. And just when all of that is settled, it’s time for the outside stuff. Sanding and staining a previously unfinished deck, installing about 150’ of French drains, installing an exterior lighting system, leveling, tilling and seeding a yard (that the builder decided to seed and straw in November 🙄), landscaping, building a low wall around a planting bed and supervising a concrete contractor doing a driveway and patio extension. Oh, almost forgot about the 3 days I spent on designing a shock absorption system for a 2nd floor laundry room. Tip: if you’re ever building or renovating a house with a 2nd floor laundry and plan on having a front load washer, reinforce the floors like they’ll be supporting a division of Abrams tanks. Front load washers generate enough force to cause vibrations that will shake hanging light fixtures on the floor below. Since ripping up a brand new floor wasn’t an option, I built my own custom vibration damping system: a platform that extended out 2” on any side of the footprint the washer and dryer take up. From the bottom up: 1/8” rubber gasket material against the existing flooring, followed by 3/4” sub flooring, followed by 3/16 high density fiberboard, followed by vinyl flooring to match. The width of the platform spreads the force over a larger area, with the rubber absorbing some of the vibrations before they pass through the floor. The HDF prevents the feet of the washer from sinking in to the subfloor over time. Next up will be more drainage to connect the end of my drains with the local storm sewer, Funny you mention tablets. Strange quirk about me (one of many). I refuse to own a tablet. Why? Because it can’t completely replace either my laptop or my phone, so it’s just another device to lug around.

  5. I thought this was kind of funny. I bet he takes another unofficial visit next weekend...and the weekend after that...and the one after that.

  6. If, at the end of the year, the only prediction I have right is the Cardinals finishing 4th in the Central, I will consider it successful.

  7. Stat of the day. Nick Castellanos and Jesse Winker have the top two batting averages in all of MLB, and neither has benefitted from hitting against the Reds bullpen.

  8. So, How is that Fearless Forecaster doing as of June 13th? See. above. Predictions listed first. Ties are listed in order as they appear on ESPN. Best Division - NL Central (cumulative deviation score of 0) Worst Division - NL East (cumulative deviation score of 10)

  13. This may explain why Siakim's shot has not improved. Torn labrum might do it https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/31612429/toronto-raptors-pascal-siakam-undergoes-shoulder-surgery-miss-five-months

  14. Hey All, Natty, UpperArlington, and I are going to the Sept 18th game vs Cincy, and would love to get a tailgate/get together with other board members! It’s a 12et/11ct kickoff, and I would get there early to set up shop for everyone to come by. I don’t know if I plan to do much food, but if people want to chip in then we can get people fed and drink the day away. Please let me know if you can make it, because I will at least get snacks and some drinks for everyone. Hope to see a lot of you there, and I will posted this on BTB as well.

  19. You mean like the one we traded away this off season for $5? Cubs are playing/executing extremely well no doubt....but this isn't a very good team. Of course by the looks of things you don't have to be very good to win the NL Central.

  20. Personally, I still believe the Cubs are a quality starter away from being a WS contender.

  21. Under 15 timeout 47-41 IN. Luke Brown needs to shoot more. Too many guys shooting bricks. KY has had a couple of chances to take the lead but they've airballed a few 3's.

  23. I’ll have to snap some pics tomorrow, but I never appreciated how hard it is to grow grass. And no, not kind. We moved into a new house in December, and the builder had the great idea to seed/straw the yard in friggin November. And our lot has a pretty good slope to it. Yep, you can imagine how that turned out. So far this spring, I’ve installed downspouts on all the gutters that make their way into about 150’ of French drains, brought in 30 cubic yards of fill dirt to go halfway level things out, tilled the entire yard and put down new seed. Oh and at the wife’s behest, planted a bunch of flowers and $&!&. Because apparently that stuff is important. 🤣

  28. Exactly. Why some still need to pile on after all these years is baffling. Especially when he reached levels of success here in his best years that his successor never came close to achieving.

  29. I know there is lots of hate for him in the IU community, but I will always root for him. I always liked the guy. I'm not saying he shouldn't have been fired here but I will always appreciate the dark days he weathered for this program.
