There are some good games today, there are some bad games today. Let’s see if we can figure out which are which, shall we? Or just come on into the thread and talk smack. Acceptable as well.
Follow Jeff Piotrowsky on Twitter/Periscope. He’s in south Florida right now. Brilliant meteorologist. I’ve watched him for a couple of years now, and he never fails to impress me. Link:
Welcome to Week Dos of my happiness, football season. This is a very VERY weird day for college football, and you will need to take a nap early and chug some espresso late to watch the magic that’ll happen. Do this today, thank me tomorrow.
Anybody else need football season? I need it. I need it bad. And it’s here, THANK YOU YEEZUS! Now let’s talk about who’s playing today/this weekend.
There’s been a lot of talk about the events over the past week of so about Texas as a whole, Hurricane Harvey, and the historic floods that have subsequently occurred in the southeastern region of Texas. Much of it, I have seen, has been a lot of “horse hockey”. As a lucky individual who has weathered the storm and…
...that even helicopters don’t want to land? I give you this KC-130 preparing to refuel a Blackhawk mid-air over my house. Oh, and would you like to know how much rain we’ve had here in Houston since Friday night?
Houston has been declared as a “Flash Flood Emergency” by the NWS, which is the rarely-used, shit-your-pants level above “Flash Flood Warning”. Flooding is rampant around the area, and we’re not even close to being done with the rain. If you’re in an affected area (not just H-Town), let us know if you’re okay.
STAHP. Those are NOT the same warnings being repeated. I’ve had to herd my family into an interior closet TWICE in tha past hour and a half. There are currently THREE “areas of rotation” just east and north of us.
We had SIX separate Tornado Warnings last night/this morning, not to mention a ton of emergency alert messages regarding Flash Flood Warnings. A neighborhood south of me got tagged by a tornado, with fifty or so houses damaged. And that was just in the outer bands.
You wouldn’t understand.
We’re on the “dirty side” of the storm (Houston). If it follows this path, my house will get about 20-30" of rain over the next few days. You didn’t misread that.
Let me think... you could choose Indianapolis (snore), Detroit (NOPE), or Cleveland (*snicker*), ORRRRR you can come hang in San Antonio, AUSTIN, or Dallas for the next eclipse!!! This ain’t even a competition.
The best Rick Roll ever. EVER. NSFW due to Rick cursing.
I’m happy. Wife cried. Football is back. Praise the gods of pigskin.
...for the first time in about a month. Three cheese enchiladas. And queso. And some beans. And guac.
Just preseason, but it’s like Methadone to a heroin addict. Combine this with Texas being in the preseason top 25, and I’m giddy for this fall.
For the past four years, we’ve been entertained by Gamecat235's post of the “ultimate ground speed check”. In honor of the post’s fourth anniversary, I submit a live (and entertaining) telling of the story by The Man himself, Maj Brian Schul.
like LOVE sleepers. A car that looks timid, is common, and is usually slow, but then rips its competitors a new bunghole off the line is a wonderful thing to me. So while researching some possibilities that are somewhat (not really) economical, I started looking at Ford Police Interceptors. Then shit went south.

So I’m in Miami for business, and I’m in awe of the opulence of the area I’m staying in (Brickell, pronounce “Brickle”, and not “Brick-ell” like normal people would say it). I walked three blocks today and saw a Ferrari 488 GTB, a Ferrari California, and a Huracan convertible (purple, because Miami).
