  1. Week 4 Games

    And the .m3u8 streams just switched over to Boone Pickens Stadium from Pig/Farmer.
  2. Happy Birthday, crunch!

    Happy Birthday!
  3. Week 4 Games

    Looks interesting, but how much garlic bleeds through? Guessing it is what I would call a milder sauce as there is no capsaicin extract added (ala Dave's Insanity and the like). My go to sauce is Castillo's Red Habanero. I think they have changed the name to Mexico Lindo recently, though. http://www.alegrofoods.com/castillosalsahabanerarojaextrapicante.aspx
  4. Week 4 Games

    Utes manage to hang on and win 30-24, advancing their record to 4-0.
  5. The Sports Dump

    I just stumbled across this comment from Joel Klatt and found it to be awesome - "Here's the deal. Aggie fans, I love ya, k? We've had a lot of fun. Last year, I tried to protect ya. The college football playoff committee, they set you up for failure. They ranked you 4th for no reason, and here's the deal: You are suffering from a derangement of expectations. Like, you gotta stop thinking that you're something that you're not. It's just not working. Do you not see that? It's insanity. You're doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. You are, Texas A&M, exactly what you were in the Big XII. All you've done is spend more money. So, I don't get it. You got a raise. You spend more money, but guess what? You're the same family. You're an average team right now. Now you can think that you deserve better because you've spent, and you've had the fifteen founders give a hundred million or whatever it was when oil was going crazy. And that's great, but one great year doesn't mean that you should compete for a division title and a national title and a conference title on a year in and year out basis. You've treated your coach like garbage, namely the regent, who should be run out of town. Who's the adult in the room, my goodness? Just allow them to build something. Now, if you don't think it's good enough at the end of the year, go ahead, but this whole thing, you know, the letter sent to his house, and the regent... It's like, if I were Kevin Sumlin and those players, I would want to flip you off too, and I want to do it with my ring on my finger! "You can't [shoot the bird at the fans], right? But you're putting a kid in a position, and you argue for amateurism and all this stuff, then you treat them like professionals. I just don't like it. Some of that was cheap, and some of it is dead on and accurate, okay? A&M is not what their fanbase thinks that they are. They're the second brand in the state, much less the division, where they're at best 3rd, much less in their conference, where they're at best 6th. So, I mean, I understand. You've been the little brother for a long time. You ran away from it. You went to another conference. Fine, that's fine. Just own up to what you are. Right now, you're an average program that wishes they were better."

  8. The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    Fun stat for the week - Of all of the Power 5 football teams, only one school has an 0-3 record this year. And it is not Kansas.
  9. TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    I am a little south of where they are calling for that, but at a higher elevation. We had full blown ice yesterday morning. Forcast here is calling for rain and 44-45F overnight. Wednesday is supposed to dip into the lower 30s, though. Currently we are breezy, between showers and low 60s. Seattle type weather.
  10. TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    Yes. Showdown had snow the 15th. Here on the 14th and the morning of the 15th the smoke was suffocating and the smell of burning pine was worse than all summer. Mid-day of the 15th the temperature dropped from upper 80s-low 90s to 40s-50s and it rained. There was snow (falling, not sticking) on the 16th.
  11. I missed the first half Saturday, but I watched the second with the Frog crew doing audio. When I watched that replay, I had to mute it. Fox seems to be the only network that has tolerable announcers.
  12. That was fast; the game is up on YouTube.

    A huge thanks to @PurpleDawg for checking and editing today's links while I was preoccupied is in order! Muchas gracias!

    That I use a laser thermometer aimed at 3 locations (at the action, at the front sight, and either on rollmarking or rear sight) on the barrel to establish a baseline temperature, and don't fire again until the temperature is close to the baseline? And keep the barrel, action and ammo out of sunlight while testing/cooling off. Otherwise, no, just an average Joe with no military background. I typically don't push loads hot, except for the noted hunting/defense loads in .45 ACP (never had any signs of being overpressured, other than knowing that it is hotter than any loading book will list and I wouldn't run it in an automatic) and hunting loads in .44 Mag. (.357 I load warm with 158gr/12.0gr 2400, .45 Colt with a fairly sedate for the particular revolver at 250gr/15.0gr 2400 - I have a fondness for the dirty stuff!) For bolt action rifles, I have a couple of 70s (both pre-64s) and a Mauser, none of them ever posed any issue, and the over pressure comment was more of a notation for development and stating the fundamental safety rules of reloading. Only a couple of times have I had the issue and they have come in the same revolver and with the same batch of powder - S&W M29, and some Alliant 2400 from about 10 years ago was sticky on extraction. Immediately ceased shooting them, and went back and reloaded. After the second time, I immediately stopped, pulled the bullets, disposed of that can of powder, and haven't had an issue since. I avoid most small caliber/light bullet/large case capacity combos, anyway. My velocity ceiling is around 2500fps, both for barrel and brass life, and more importantly for me. I can shoot large bores (.404 Jeffery-.500 NE) all day long and be fine, but a couple of shots of a .270 or a .30-06 with a sub-150 grain pill and my head is throbbing. I am a lightweight and can't take that sharp snap, but do okay with a big push. I found the best training for handgun accuracy was stretching it out. And even farther than 100 yards. Lobbing them out to 250 yards (or more) like artillery may sound like a waste, but I found that when I was practicing that, even though I had more misses than I wanted (probably 60-70% hit rate), when I came back to 100 or less, I was shooting considerably more accurately because of the body mechanics involved requiring such greater precision. I target practice handguns at 100 yards because it keeps me honest with my hold, breathing and trigger pull and makes 50 yards or less a piece of cake.
