Now if we could get the $%**# federal agencies back up and running, I could close on a property I've been trying to buy for about 10 months !!! :mad::mad:

More importantly, I could ride my bike through National Park Service property which there is a lot of in DC. :)

Saturday's football game with the Merchant Marine Academy has been postponed due to the government shutdown. http://www.rpiathletics.com/news/2013/10/3/WSOC_1003135221.aspx Interesting, seeing as how Army, Navy and Air Force will all play this weekend. But seeing as how its the federal government, logic doesn't enter the equation.

Helps to be a big Division I program. From http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2013-10-02/sports/bs-sp-navy-air-force-1003-20131002_1_football-game-army-navy-game-government-shutdown :
While Navy's athletic program is privately funded, the cost of the Air Force team flying to Maryland from Colorado Springs would have to come from revenue generated through the school's affiliation with the Mountain West Conference.

According to Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson, conference member schools have access to between $2.5million and $3 million in television fees and other sources that can be used at the academy's discretion.

Hope you Libs are happy you voted for Barry Sotero.
Well I don't know how the Libs feel about it but we moderates are wondering why the great Canadian born hero from Texxas doesn't just solve this before the weekend. Perhaps he's too tired from his 21 hour long non-fillibuster? Or perhaps he's out reading other great literature. Here's hoping that One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish has the secret to solving all of this. Heck, the title alone seems like a recipe for solving budgeting problems between Dems and Republicans!

Captains for this year have been announced! Tinordi gets the C, Higgs and Rogic each get the A's.

I also like the picks. 3 hardworking boys who demand a lot from themselves. Really rough early schedule coming up, but if this team can put things together, this could be a lot of fun for them and all of us who follow them.

As you may know, our friends at Union College discontinued their civil engineering program a few years ago to concentrate resources on exciting new opportunities in other fields, such as aerospace engineering and zoology.

Union fans definitely aren't too civil, especially one. ;)

You could now start to have the countdown in hours since we are in the last day-it would serve 2 purposes. It would keep this thread near the top all day long and you could reach a post count of 200,000 perhaps as early as this season;)

So something like "34 hours, 19 minutes until 7 PM on Oct 5", you mean?

wait, it's 34 hours, 18 minutes.....have to type a little faster next time I guess.

Ed Weaver article and interview with Matt Tinordi http://www.troyrecord.com/articles/2013/10/04/sports/doc524dfe7ba6c6f374372671.txt?viewmode=fullstory.

Tinrodi will be skating with Laliberte and Haggerty replacing CJ Lee.

One could use a timer like at WaP if USCHO allowed it. :)

The National Park Service is doing a great job this week of keeping out of a lot of places that I usually go. :(

I think that there has been more than "a slight chance of drivel" so far on this thread. Perhaps things will clear up when the games start. :)

Always been a big Johnny fan because of the jets he has. Matt T has always been a warrior. Very happy for Brock and his dad Harold, both are great gentlemen.
