Foul ball!!!!

Rev is still a posting fool on Facebook. I happened to stop by his page yesterday and saw that he had caught a foul ball at a Phillies game. Apparently he was pretty pumped about it, because there was about a dozen posts about it, including video and this gem below. I'm not sure what qualifies as a catch...or whatever...but you be the judge. Either way, Rev is now in possession of a MLB foul ball.



Of course, we all knew that Rev was a baseball talent...remember this? Look at the form. I show this pic to people on our softball team when they have problems hitting...we're 0-3. We may need a bounty system.



What you may not know, is that Rev was eating a plate of sushi at the time he got the foul ball. Apparently there is an app he downloaded where he ordered sushi at the ballpark and had it delivered to his seat. I don't eat sushi, but I'm sure the sushi at the ballpark is second to none (gross).

I found out that the ESPN streak for cash has an app...now I can streak from my phone. I'm not doing any better...but I don't forget as much.

This guy seems credible...and he looks like a chubby Nick Swardson.

I didn't live in Houston when the Oilers skipped town. However, I was here when they started up again with the Texans. I guess I'd consider the Texans my AFC team for that reason alone, but I don't have any emotional investment in them if that makes any sense. I cheer for them and enjoy it when they win, but if they lose it doesn't bother me any. I say all that because it looks like the Vikings are getting close to crunch time. I don't think I'd have a good reaction if the Bears ever left Chicago...so I'd feel very bad for Kod (and a few other friends who are Vikings fans) if they were to leave. So Kod...if they do end up leaving, where do your rooting interests go? Do you follow them to LA? Do you become an NFL free agent? Does MN ever get a team again like Houston and Cleveland did, and if so, do you go with them? I always Texans fans that they will move to LA and become the LA Texans. That would be suite.

OK, that's all I've got...Go!

Vikings should sell team shares like the packers do. It is a voluntary tax on the public.

tem said...

Or have their own lottery, another voluntary tax.

"hope for twins so you can be done with it forever"

Ok, so here's the deal. My sister had twins, so it runs in my family. My wife is about 5'9", so I am hoping for 6' twin girls who can get full rides to college on basketball scholarships.

kod said...

"Johnson acknowledged that it is not enough to cover the costs of Sanford Center’s operation, which lost $378,315.20 in 2011 before accounting for the city’s $417,138 subsidy"


all so Bemidji State could join the WCHA, which is essentially about to become defunct

great 3 year run though; well worth the multi million dollar losses (ssssssssssss)

Tyler said...

But then daycare is at least $700/month, so twins would pretty much break us financially. And, when they were newborns, my niece and nephew were more than a handful.

Tyler said...

"still has zeke's email"

He doesn't answer that email, I've tried.

Cheap daycare. It's about $700 for us right now

Aitch said...

have you banging some groupies.

Aitch said...

cmTyler doesn't need to know

Keef said...

Cmk's mom has triplet cousins, & my mom has triplet cousins. So that has crossed our minds, too

Tyler said...

$700 a month each. So twins = $1400/month.

Keef said...

OIC. Yeah that's worst*

Aitch said...

Childcare is so freaking expensive. I don't know how people do it!

Keef said...

Childcare is so freaking expensive. I don't know how people do it!


It's basically equivalent to having another car payment for each of us. If you look at it as $350 for each person, it's just a matter of cutting out some unnecessary spending in other places.

Tyler said...

Yeah, my Mom had twin cousins too, so it's freaking me out a little. Talked to my sister a couple of months ago about kids and she said their marriage was on the rocks for the first two years because the kids were too much.

Aitch said...

I hear ya. I just know some people around here who pay more in childcare than one spouse makes. That never makes any sense to me.

Keef said...

LP has the answer to that

Tyler said...

"If you look at it as $350 for each person, it's just a matter of cutting out some unnecessary spending in other places."

Yes, you just have to tighten the belt, which we've been doing lately. And even at $1400/month it doesn't justify one of us staying home, so we've gotta go with daycare.

Keef said...

T
Do you guys have family in the area? Not necessarily for day care, but it's mos def a ya-huge help.
My mom has every other Friday off, so she watches bgas on those days so that saves us about $100/mo

Tyler said...

Do you guys have family in the area?

Yes. We are looking for a house right now, and one of the areas we're looking in would be about five minutes from my in-laws. It would be annoyingly close (my father-in-law drives me crazy), but my mother-in-law doesn't work, so that would come up huge on sick days, because I take a commuter bus to work and it doesn't run in the middle of the day. So that is something that we're keeping in the back of our minds during the housing search.

Blue said...

when we had bgblue1, i made a deal with cmblue, she could stay home as long as she found a part-time job to pickup the difference between what she was making and what childcare would have cost us.

here, the reputable places (not just at somebody's house) is like $325/week.

So we were looking at $1500/month for one kid

Blue said...

Wait a minute.

Keef said...

Has kod not seen the rev baseball pic before today?

Tyler said...

The bus is a nice charter bus, not one of the regular mass-transit bus. It's also full of commuters and students, not crazy homeless people like the metro buses.

Campus pays for half of it, so I only pay $40/month pre-tax. Parking alone is $62/month, plus gas ($$$) and wear and tear on your car (I have to go over the Sepulveda pass and that is a giant hill), so it made sense. My car insurance is really low too, because the last two years I barely put 4000 miles on my car.

careful with this, awesome if it doesnt come with guilt trips and what have you done for me lately looks

Tyler said...

Before I started taking the bus I was spending $125-$150 a month in gas plus $62 a month for parking. The pass also blew out my breaks in under a year, I had to get all four pads replaced at the same time. So saving all of that money is nice.

Tyler said...

"I miss the daily Prius count"

Oh man, I forgot about that. Yeah, I just zone out on the bus now and listen to my iPod and/or look at stuff on my phone. It's really helped my stress level because fighting traffic here is not fun.

Keef said...

I wish that's what it was for me. Mine is about $250-$300. But I don't have to go through a giant pass

Remember when I said that yesterday? That was awesome

Keef said...

Honda lady just emailed me and said she could give me more trade in value on the Jetta if I get a new Accord. My payments would be $30 more per month. I emailed her and said I could only do $10 more. Negotiating is so dumb. Just fucking tell me what number you can go to so we don't have to waste all this back and forth

Keef said...

Hey H, when is NDR going to have a CD?

El Padrino said...

she did tell you the number

you are the one negotiating

Keef said...

she did tell you the number

you are the one negotiating




She told me a number that is $30 more than I told her I wanted to pay. She's negotiating for me to get into a new car instead of a used car.

Keef said...

But yes, I am negotiating too.


no apology

El Padrino said...

its accepted anyway

El Padrino said...

pieceeeeeeeeeeee

Blue said...

as a finance guy they always piss me off by talking about payments.


of course you can get me a lower payment if i put another $3k down...how about you lower the payment by not charging me so much

Blue said...

also, always know what interest rates are by googling them before you go into the dealership.

Then the first time they bring out a payment, the first question should be "what interest rate is that at?"

They always start high, because they get a kickback from the banks the higher the rate they get you to accept.

Blue said...

if they act like they can't get you a "market" rate because of your credit, tell them you qualified at another dealership for the low rate (have an actual number you can use)

Blue said...

i hate buying cars. with all their dirty tricks about payments and half the time the first payment they show you is at like 9% interest

kod said...

that's interesting, did not know all that (ns) but makes sense

kod said...

"half the time the first payment they show you is at like 9% interest"

shoot, most people in cmkod's family and at my office have over 9% interest on their car loans, but their credit score is probably not in your league

Keef said...

I already talked to her about the rate. It's 3.5%

Blue said...

i got 13% when i was fresh out of collitch and had a repo on my credit.

most people push on price because that's what they understand the best....there are limits, i mean you can't tell them you want 0.9% interest or something.

but we got our most recent car at 3.9%, and the guy initially started us at like 8%

Blue said...

"I already talked to her about the rate. It's 3.5%"

that's a good rate if you're buying

Blue said...

all the "tricks" that car sites like edmunds and stuff tell you to use, they don't work.

Tyler said...

Didn't someone mention a credit union? They always have the lowest rates. One of mine is advertising 2.49%.

Keef said...

My credit score is probably about 300 pts higher now than when I married cmk. She's helped me a lot with taking care of my finances

Tyler said...

CMTyler's credit score has gone up about that much since we moved in together.

Tyler said...

And she's finally paid off all of her debt so she's saving a ton of money each month now instead of living paycheck-to-paycheck.

Meiz said...

"Didn't someone mention a credit union? They always have the lowest rates. One of mine is advertising 2.49%."


Yup. Credit Union is the bomb.

Keef said...

I got approved for 3.4% from BofA. I told our sales chick I'd rather use that

i don't think mine can go 300 pts higher.

my car loan is 1.9% i think.

but i bought a couple years ago when they were basically giving them away.
