  1. Couldn't have said it better. Love the foot on the gas pedal mentality.

    Poorly worded. Meant, it isn't a Tex-Mex restaurant, like many would expect.

    Source? Was just here a few weeks ago. It's an established restaurant that has outgrown its location. Wouldn't mind a new, larger location with better access. It was as busy as ever and a mess to get in and out of. Food is solid, as always. Not the Tex-Mex most expect.
  4. Not sure where this belongs, but thought I would share it here. We got estimates from our fencing contractors in March for a residential job. We're getting bids this week and pricing is coming back +40%. They're referencing increases in commodity prices and availability of materials for the increases. Commodity prices have been coming down, so that is a head scratcher. I believe the lack of material availability, but presumably that would reflect in commodity prices, ignoring lag on timing. Perhaps bigger issue is everyone is busy and so they're baking in more margin to make it feasible and worth their time to take on additional work.
  5. So… I have not been keeping up with COVID since we got vaccinated in April. I just heard today that Houston is shutting down elective surgeries to make additional hospital capacity. How does one get caught up with what’s going on in detail over the last several months? Any reliable news sources worth reading? Seems like a lot of conflicting information.

  6. That is awesome. Both of those guys are absolutely freak physical specimens - Viking blood. And a Longhorn too.
  7. What are you blabbering about? No, I don't want to see - as you put it - "the best in the world regardless of how they get there." I want to see the best each country has to offer compete under their own flag against other countries. I would guess that overwhelming majority fall in line with that thought process. If everyone really wanted to see the best in the world, they'd watch the WCA - and who in the hell watches that? People watch the Olympics because it is an international event where countries are represented, not because we go to bed at night wondering who can run the 200M hurdle the fastest.
  8. She withdrew from a number of events. I think people are giving her too hard of a time. She basically had a mix of vertigo and the yips. Seems perfectly reasonable to withdraw from events where you're running at high speeds, launching yourself into the air, and twisting and turning based hoping to land based on instinct. Whereas the balance beam is less of that. Separately, what's up with all of these Americans competing under other flags? As others have pointed out, Camacho-Quinn who was born and raised in the United States competed under the Puerto Rico flag. There have also been two others who's names escape me - one competed for Israel and the other for Jamaica. May be an unpopular opinion, but that's kind of bush league.
  9. What in the world did I just watch. Visually stunning. Story telling is confusing and underwhelming on first watch as all get out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I fucking hate this interview. Team USA DW on the 4 x 400 because of a mistake on the baton handoff. I feel bad for them because they’ve been dominating the competition and this is just a mental mistake. Rules are rules, I get it. But sick to see this journalist try to get a “gotcha” moment from the athlete and put her on blast. Fuck him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Saw this as well. I don’t know the first thing about foil (how does this differ from fencing?), but the last match was great and as you said, the reaction of her and her coach was a great moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Called it in the Olympics thread.
  13. Have been watching FRA v USA. This is going to be close. What I've realized from watching a few Olympic basketball games now is the NBA is soft as hell. The driving, flopping, foul seeking and so forth behavior is clearly not rewarded in international play. Hopefully USA learns fast and plays accordingly, else that bronze medal may be in our future.
  14. Agreed, art. Also, took me a second to understand what "surrender cobra" was until I watched the video, hilarious. Giannis is going to be a mega-star if he can pull this off. He's already a two time league MVP. He will be Finals MVP. He already has two (the block in G4, the dunk in G5) iconic, memorable moments so far. And he's a young super star that has accomplished all of this while staying loyal to his team. Giannis' one ring will be worth more than any number of rings Durant may win because of how he did it. Truly amazing.
  15. Oh wow, I didn't even notice this live. That should be reviewed. That is dirty as hell.
  16. Crazy that the game can swing this much this fast. PHX super sloppy with the ball.
  17. 100%. I can't stand these guys. Not only do they add nothing, they take away from the game watching experience. Especially Gundy. Kills me.
  18. Whether you intended to or not, you ironically just highlighted everyone's chief complaint here. And "more serious," for the record.
  19. This is down right embarrassing.
  20. What the hell was that Nike commercial? Things that are never going to happen? But let’s pretend they are? I really don’t understand that one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Yikes. I knew they weren't having a good game, but didn't realize they were that off. Not sure if it is just me, but this is some sloppy basketball. This doesn't feel like playoff basketball, much less a finals series. The winner of this is going to be a historically bad team we will remember. Feels like PHX should be up 15+ by now and yet MIL is hanging in there.
  22. Are you my spirit animal? Couldn't have said it better.
  23. Bucks should be up by 15. No matter what happens, coach has to go. This is some idiotic basketball.
  24. Everyone out here talking about marijuana. What really offends me is her damn smoke detector low battery going off while she’s doing these damn interviews today. Absolutely rage inducing. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
