Kyle continues to prove his ranking is well deserved.
I do not get Nickerson though. Looked strong through the semis. Anyone know the specifics on the injury? Shoulder again? Would have been a good final.
From what i've been told its that shoulder again. I hope he can get fit enough for part of the year. He should really think about his life without an arm if he keeps this up. How much can a guy take?

When i think of what wrestling has taught me I will forever think of Adam. He fought off his back for the last 21 months like the champ he was never giving up. He is every thing I hope my two boys can be in every way. It hurts.

I have done a movie here in Delhi.  Therefore, with my acting chops....can I play Shute?????

Sure, I am twice as old as the guy playing Louden, but I look younger than my 34 years.  I look more like 32.

Let me try my lines:

....."you're meat".   :twisted:

Let me try that again...."You're meat!"  :o

OK, I'm ready.  Someone call casting.
Delhi NY?

As I have heard it said many times throughout the years:  taking money to help kids is wrong.  Shame, shame!
I already told them to make the check out to the pee wee program :D
But I still don't think it would be wrong if I did take the cash.

I am now being paid to coach JR high wrestling :D  Funny stuff.

I thought that most, if not all, JR high coaches got paid...why funny?
IDK, I guess I've been doing it for free all these years and I've never given it a thought. Now it just seems humorous that they want to pay me.

Teachers are highly under paid, under equipped by their administrations, and under appreciated, so therefore I think you should get her a nice flat screen to have in the classroom. The bigger the better!!
I don't believe they are under paid what so every. Here they make $62,000 for half a years work, have every snow day, holiday, and a number of other days they dream up off. They get first crack at coaching jobs even if they don't have a clue about the sport (JR high wrestling $2700 for 1 1/2 hours a day 3 days a week for 2 months). Want a teacher parent meeting? Head to the local bar after school and you'll find most of them continuing to do what they studied in college. Why do you think the US is behind in math and science? It isn't their pay its their attitude and the union.

All depends on where you live.

Starting pay over here is about $25,000 with only two snow days, in which we took one today.
It does depend on the location. They start at $38,000 here and after receiving tenure get the bigger bucks. A snow day out here is like two inches!! And they're paid for every one of them.

I would have to put a giant net around my house because of the million baseballs the boys plop on the roof every summer.

My black lab's name is Lucky!!  How great is that.  

He also got ran over.  He wasn't yet a year old and my wife was hoping he could play with the kids over the summer.  Well, he broke his leg way up high and we had to keep him sedated for weeks while it healed.  But he's all lab, 4 year old and still a little puppy mentally.  

One interesting thing about him is he heards our chickens.  At first he wanted to eat them (yes he's neutered), but now he heards them around.

Whats?? He heards the chickens??!! Thats funny stuff :lol: My buddy could use that dog because he has a ton of free range chickens he's always trying to catch.

Well,

He only herds chickens he knows.  New chickens have to be defended by the humans until he gets used to them.  We have 6 females and he was just getting used to them when a "friend" gave us a rooster.  He would herd the hens but the rooster he was after with blood in his eyes for about 2 months.  Now the rooster is ok.  Wo to the new chicken that pops on the scene.

Lucky also hates raccoons.  Last night I came home and saw a raccoon pawing at his dog dish.  So I brought it inside, called him, he sniffed it, I let him outside.  He sniffed around for about 5 seconds, stood up straight and shot like a bat out of %%%% after that raccoon and he went in the right direction.  He's had a few scrapes with those guys.  He's pretty nasty when he wants to be, even neutered.

So as a result, we don't see deer, raccoons, or coyotes anymore.  The bear hasn't been around like before and the cougars haven't been on our property for awhile.  We did see a bobcat a few months back, I'm not sure where Lucky was but I think he would have been after him if he was outside.

I walked into the pen of my lil 13 lb Jack Russell one morning and found one very dead 'possum that had made the mistake of coming over the side of the retaining wall. There were blood splatters all around she thrashed it until she broke its neck.

I was one PROUD PAPA!
Those "Jacks" are pretty bad ass aren't they?

I like how they say the janitor caught them. He was probably out in the hallway, looking through the window on the door, filming it with his camera phone. I know I would have been.
Why the heck would he turn them in? Damn!
