It's horrible. I know a father who has his kid in select lacrosse and they both seem adjusted, but a nation of Marinoviches can't be a good thing.

Finally I've found something that makes travel hockey look sane.
 
And a bunch of these kids have all of their expenses paid for by the club. Where does that kind of $$$$ come from?

The coach in the article was paid $65k per year.
 
To coach 10 year olds.
 
I coach soccer for free. What am I doing wrong?

If it helps unemployment and puts people otherwise to work...great idea.
 
Do any jobs actually even pay minimum wage anymore? Not around here at least - McD's is offering $11/hr
 
Best cure for low wages is NOT a high MW - it's a competitive labor market.
 
But then you already knew that.

As CNN attempts to bully Twitter into canceling Trump's account, Trump
needs to check into taking away their license or whatever he needs to do
to prevent a militant group from attacking our nation and it's citizens
with falsehoods meant to hurt us.

The biggest consideration for any Alabama game is the size of the parking lot.
Those pick-up trucks take up a lot of room. (No - disregard that statement)!
 
In any case it should be an interesting game.
God's own beloved Fighting Irish vs. .........
 
Nope, I can't say it yet. J. Hugh, what is the date of Alabama's first game?
Any way, last year I pledged not to make any more posts that disparaged the name of that team down south until their opening kick-off of the 2017 season.

well is ND really relevant?
 
As for the neutral site, a lot of that is a money thing. The networks love Bama on that opening weekend in a showcase game against a name team and they get paid well.
 
http://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/2017-fsu-alabama-contract-details-5m-per-team-free-hotel-rooms-more/
 
Another factor here is that Tide Pride people *love* these games in Atlanta and Dallas. And that's worth a ton of $$ to Bama because it drives up the cost of donations greatly to tide pride. So you have to take that into account too(beyond the 10-11 million since it's two years vs whatever the take home would be from just ONE home game in a home and home).
 
But tide pride is where the $$ are, and those people want the neutral site showcase games like last year and this year to open the year.

Notre Dame isn't relevant any longer so it's kind of hard to get super
excited about playing them like I do for regular SEC games.

Hell, Chicago only had 100 people shot, and only 15 of those died, over the 4th of July weekend.
 
 
Maybe it could be that Rahm doesn't believe that more guns are the answer. Trump will need to 'help' some other way.

Chicago needs fewer guns on the street(by people who are legally allowed to have guns) about as much as the new England patriots need a new coach and qb heading into this year.

That's Peter Suderman of Reason. No surprise. One of my charitable gifts
every year.
 
Still in all, it's pie in the sky. No one thinks a from-scratch bipartisan
health care reform can be achieved. The Democrats left wing is going nuts
for single-payer, they can't consider compromise.

HEALTH CARE IS NOT HEALTH INSURANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree. But since we are giving Medicaid to all comers, it has become
health care reform. I would love to see real health insurance, but
Obamacare killed that.
 
Would that I could have an HSA and a policy that only started paying
after I went $10,000 out of pocket. Combine that with rolling back most
regulations on starting health care providers, which would stimulate a
supply-side renaissance, we might get somewhere. But that would make
too much sense.
