    It's the story of my life......40 years of waiting till next year and thinking 'next year' would be OUR year. Guess we'll have to wait a while to find out if our time has finally arrived, no? :icon_sad:

    Me, I suppose I'll just hang out here and wait with y'all. Nobody's gonna accuse us of being fair-weather fans, that's for dang sure!!!

    So......what's everybody going to be doing until the preseason starts?

    I'm going to try going back to not smoking, and hopefully to quit for good this time.

    I'll be scraping up whatever NFL news there is after the Superbowl.

    But mostly, I'll be spending more time with my kiddos. My 1 year old is one funny kid and already knows how to antagonize his 4 year old brother. :lol:

    Funny how quickly younger siblings learn to annoy their big bro/sis, isn't it? My 22-month-old grandson started getting even with the 3 1/2 year old as soon as he learned how to make a fist. He can usually be counted on to jump Eli's butt when Eli's getting a diaper change. LOL

    You know, I used to go through an entire pack during a tough game........football season was NOT a good time to try to quit. Good on you for trying now! I wish you the best---you'll be glad one day, I guarantee it.:tup:

    For the next few weeks, I'll be watching football b/c as much as I wish the Bolts were still in the mix... I love football too much to pass it up. Good thing is, I dont care so much about the games so I'll get lots of stuff done around the house. :yes: This offseason there should be lots of news to keep up with, hopefully all positive [fingers crossed!] and maybe we'll get lucky and the Padres won't get any worse? :icon_shrug:

    No Arena league this year is going to be tough... ugh MLB and NBA suck donkey butt so much... :no:

    Wait for opening day in April.

    The Padres are going to suck again this year, but I can enjoy baseball as a whole.

    Then there's Ricky Henderson's HOF induction speech to look forward to.

    That ought to be a gem.

    Watch the Braves wrangle for a new pitching staff.

    Work on the draft.

    Mostly avoid Charger forums until the frenzy has worn down some. :lol:

    Cry over my lost $1.5M+ Bolt Cash.

    Ride, ride, ride my Harley.

    Plan my Buck Bunker. :tup:

    Support Obama. :icon_toast:

    Thanks, I will need all the help I can get. Last Feb when I cut down little by little until I quit, it was easier as I had such a bad cold/cough that it hurt to smoke. So, now I have to do it mentally more so.

    Thanks for the several reps for quitting, it really does help me feel stronger to make it.

    We're headed into Joshua Tree next week for three days of hiking, and then we're off to Moab for our annual meanderings into Arches and some of Canyonlands and eating at the great pizza beer buffet in town Moab.....we want to end up in Bryce for some cross country skiing in the canyon.

    Budget cuts have cut back many of my sub teaching days, so it is a great time to hit the road...frontier bars and wilderness hiking...it doesn't get better than that.

    After the SB, want to think about anything other than football until draft day. Then I want a two week break until training camp.

    I'm really burned out on football....BAD... I'm staying away from the draft boards and I don't plan to be part of any mock drafts...

    I prolly won't even watch the SB unless the CARDS are playing.

    Not so fast...if they can get by Houston, they then will face the C's.

    We all remember what happened in that last game of the finals last year...ignominious, humiliating, unworthy. :icon_shrug:

    Kind of like the Celts/Cavs game last Friday? :lol:

    And let’s not forget about not having Bynum in the Finals last year. Not saying he's as good as KG but take away that presence in the paint and the Lakers take that series in 6.

    I'm not too concerned about Huston or anybody else in the West as they match up pretty well against any of them.

    I've tried, but I just can't get into basketball.........all that running up and down the court, back and forth, back and forth. Even my parents, who would watch dang near anything with at least one man and a ball in it, didn't see the point of basketball: "Why don't they just spot both teams 100 points and then let 'em play the last five minutes of the game?" was my Dad's logic. Works for me.

    My sister's into NASCAR; I don't get the attraction there either. Ooo, a 'sport' where you get to sit down and make left turns all day long. Only thing interesting about that is the accidents, which are often spectacular and yet, mostly result in a couple scratches and some cussing. I am glad it's safer than it used to be; I was watching the day Earnhardt Sr. was killed, and I never forgot it. I wish I could.

    That leaves baseball, which hasn't been the same since the steroid scandals and multiple player strikes. These guys, their egos keep writing checks their bodies can't cash, and it's all about money, fame, women, drugs, everything but what baseball was meant to be about. Besides, the Padres suck and always will until someone who cares about winning buys the team.

    SOOOOOOO.........it's a good thing for me that spring isn't too far off, and the indoor gardening season is about to begin. The seed catalogs should start arriving any day now. With all of the frost-killed plants out in the yard, I should have LOTS of room to replace them with new ones!
