    Re: Post Race!

    The first time I saw signs for Moosic, PA I couldn't help but think there must be some association with particularly melodic bovines.
    And it must be in a county where people just didn't have a lot of initiative, i.e. Lackawanna County.
    Also passed by a place not that far away that must be known for its fidelity footware, i.e. Loyalsock Township, PA.

    I lived a bit in Virginia not too far from HorsePasture, VA, and now live not too from Horseheads NY.
    Climax VA wasn't too far away either and had a bit of notoriety when I was younger, but apparently isn't really that uncommon since there are Climax's all over the place, like in NY, PA, NC and MI to name a few. I'm not sure if there is any association with all the "Washington slept here" notices that used be a common claim.

    I grew up in a town that supposedly was named after John Hancock in the hope that he'd benefit the town in some way...which he did not. I don't know if that story is true or just a rumor, though.

    I live in a neighborhood that was named after the first president of the US (or at least the Continental Congress) - Samuel Huntington.

    You should write something about it so that it could be your nom de plume. After all, that would allow your writing to be even handed.

    Winter might arrive today...or the next couple days. A storm may sit over us for a time. Nothing but a bit of wind so far, but hopefully there will be snow in the mountains.

    Those tornadoes were not just impressively strong and deadly, but aren't they crazy late in the year? The require T-storms, as far as I know, and this is awfully late in the year for serious vertical development.

    Well, this snow has blown over and has thus far been over blown. The mountains got a fair amount, the valleys got none, which is good, but the mountains didn't get as much as I would have liked.

    The Post Race managed to fall a long ways down. It was that Christmas spirit, I suppose. Some had Christmas spirit, some had too much Christmas spirits, and so on.

    Re: Post Race!

    You ought to clean up. I note a couple names on your son's list who were out with the COVID protocol, while you've got a few (especially the two QB's) who are getting mighty hot, of late. The New England D should be looking mighty fine in the next two weeks, too, considering they get to play Jacksonville and Miami. The latter can play well, but they don't exactly light up the scoreboard, and the former...well, they're going to be drafting number 1, again.

    I would say that his WR did pretty well and yours mostly underperformed, but the outcome is the way I would expect.

    Mmm, I don't know if I agree with that.

    Ja'Marr Chase got me 50.1 points during week one, I benched him on week 2 (he had no need to play, Bengals already secured their #1 seed). Justin Jefferson got me only 8.8 on week 1, but he got me 19.6 on week 2.

    Then Jaylen Waddle, Mark Andrews, and Heath Renfrow all got me about their averages both weeks. Actually, Renfrow overperformed during week 1.

    Ah, two weeks. Yeah, that would make a difference. Jonathan Taylor was oddly quiet this last week.

    Yeah, I predict he will score 0 fantasy points in the playoffs. lol

    Interesting all the fuss over the Chargers coach calling a time out. Of coarse Collinsworth was feeding that frenzy most of the game. But the Raiders had to run another play anyway, the real problem was they let Jacobs rip off a ten yard run and put them in reasonable field goal range. They probably wouldn't have tried a 57 yarder.

    Can you believe all those 4th downs the Chargers made and then scoring a TD on the last play of regulation play. Being a Raiders fan, it was torture.
