            I was paid 104000 dollars last year by doing an internet based work and consequently I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r quite a few hours during the day. I utilized job opportunity I stumbled upon over the internet and therefore I am excited that I was able to earn such decent cash. It’s seriously newbie-friendly and therefore I am so blessed that I found out regarding it. Go and visit what I do… I was without work for six months when my early Fellow worker lastly suggested me to begin with freelancing from home… That was only just after I gained $5000 in my very first month when I actually believed I am able to do this for a living! At the moment I am happier than ever… I work at home and I am my own boss now that I always wanted… I see quite a lot of discouraged people around me, working the same old boring job that’s sucking the life from them day by day… Everytime I notice anybody like that I say START FREELANCING MAN!

          I’m getting a bit old to go wild, but I appreciate the sentiment. I think I’ll settle for seeing how much Cincinnati chili I can eat over the weekend.
          Don’t stand behind me. You have been warned.

          • I’ve been trying to up the poop joke content around here. Thanks for getting on board!

          • Roaring Aardvark

            I’ll furnish the gas…

            No lighters, however. As we age, the ability to project decreases some, and the scorch factor becomes a factor…

          Of course, their idea of “chili” may differ from yours, but I like it.

    Why is Denver not in the West?

      Would you want to play North Dakota in Fargo as the #1 ranked team?

    So, the 11, 13, and 14 seeds theoretically get home ice advantage ? What’s wrong with this picture.

    This year is another great example of why the opening weekend needs to be hosted by the 1-seeds. Two of your 1-seeds are totally screwed over by playing in regionals far closer to the teams they’ll (probably) be playing while making their fans travel cross country which is just a great reward for a great season. Denver going all the way to Cincinnati and Minnesota going all the way to Manchester. The current NCAA tournament format often screws the teams who earned the right to an easier road. It’s stupid
