  1. Coaches Poll top 25: Clemson, Ohio State lead first college football rankings of 2020 season The Tigers sit atop the poll despite losing in the national title game a year ago To the surprise of nobody, the two teams with top-tier quarterbacks found themselves at the top. Clemson racked up 38 first-place votes and leads the way at No. 1. Ohio State, which lost to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl semifinal last season, grabbed the No. 2 spot with 17 first-place votes. Alabama followed at No. 3 with four first-place votes.

  2. The Indians now have the third longest win streak in MLB a 10+ win streak would be huge in this 2020 season !
  3. Biden is at his best when he says nothing.
  4. I guess the normal opt outs should be done...... ........Under the amended collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and NFL Players Association, agreed to on July 24, players have the choice to opt out of the 2020 NFL season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If a player wished to opt out, he must have provided his club with written notification by August 6 at 4 p.m. ET. A player can still opt out later if one of the following applies: if that player gets a new diagnosis that he has a high-risk condition; or if a player's family member dies, is hospitalized or otherwise moves to a medical facility because of COVID-19 or related condition........

    Browns Training Camp 2020

    Our professional athletes have obviously reached the better than us working stiffs prima done status in fact they have long passed even our congressman. "Here's a little stipend to get you through these tough times." ........To be designated a voluntary opt-out, a player must be under contract or subject to a tender. The player's contract will toll and all provisions of that contract for the tolled year will be applicable the following season; however, he will not receive an accrued season. The player will be eligible for a stipend of $150,000 to be treated as a salary advance against his tolled contract; an undrafted free agent, however, is not eligible for the stipend....... .......It is not mandatory for a "higher risk" player to opt out. A higher-risk opt-out will receive an accrued season toward free agency and all benefits and minimum salary credit for a credited season and is also eligible for a stipend of $350,000, which will not constitute a salary advance.......
  6. My wife and I have been using absentee ballots for many years now with NO problems this just looks like a case of people not being careful and complete doing their ballots. New York Post - https://nypost.com/2020/08/05/84000-mail-in-ballots-disqualified-in-nyc-primary-election The mail-in ballots of more than 84,000 New York City Democrats who sought to vote in the presidential primary were disqualified, according to new figures released by the Board of Elections. The city BOE received 403,103 mail-in ballots for the June 23 Democratic presidential primary. But the certified results released Wednesday revealed that only 318,995 mail-in ballots were counted. That means 84,108 ballots were not counted or invalidated — 21 percent of the total. One out of four mail-in ballots were disqualified for arriving late, lacking a postmark or failing to include a voter’s signature, or other defects. The Post reported Tuesday that roughly 30,000 mail-in ballots were invalidated in Brooklyn alone ........ continued........ Duh, just stupidity here.
  7. An old saying "people vote with their wallet". True decades ago and true now -however- add in a once in a century factor the pandemic. The 2020 presidential election and possibly many others will come down to primarily two factors above any others (in any order) the pandemic and the economy......jobs !!! No matter what decade or century "it's the economy, stupid". --Bill Clinton had this taped to his wall during his campaign. It worked.
  8. Cento San Marzano are branded and only grown in Italy and traceable there to prevent counterfeiting. In the USA and elsewhere they are commonly known and grown as roma tomatoes.....favored by my dad and my wife, great for sauces and canning. For more on Cento tomatoes see https://www.cento.com/index.php The tomatoes themselves: Origins San Marzano tomatoes originate from the small town of San Marzano sul Sarno, near Naples, Italy, and were first grown in volcanic soil in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. One story goes that the first seed of this tomato came to Campania in 1770, as a gift from the Viceroyalty of Peru to the Kingdom of Naples, and that it was planted in the area of San Marzano sul Sarno. In the United States, San Marzano tomatoes are the genetic base for another popular paste tomato, the Roma tomato. The Roma is a cross between a San Marzano and two other varieties (one of which was also a San Marzano hybrid) and was introduced by the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in 1955......... Yes there are many differences and varieties of 🍅 tomatoes. Bon appetit ! (And yes I love tomatoes, at the old homestead we grew many varieties, my grandfather and dad used to collect and propogate the seeds from tomatoes and other plants. My grandfather was also an expert grafter from the Ukraine. We had 10 different kinds of fruit trees on our property. Oh the stuff that you learn here!)

  10. The Indians started 5-2 almost 6-1 and are 6-6 now with maybe the best starting pitching in MLB. Why? Bats dead.
  11. Back when I was in scouts a couple of camp sites we visited used big wood stoves plus we had big lots of cast irons. We'd cook for 30-40 scouts and leaders in all seasons I loved it ! Our troop leader had a deal with A&P to get bulk food like eggs, bread, butter, meat you name it ! And we ate like horses. I'll never forget cooking a complete Thanksgiving dinner with wood stoves which had ovens and well water and it snowed. Even breakfast was great bacon, eggs, trail bread the works. And my little Ol' grandmother used cast iron all the time and she was the best cook I've ever known. Now I love steak, burgers, veggies and more on our grill but griddle grills have their place.
