      I’m surprised Drew didn’t implement more Titan coverage since they’re covering the Reds and Bengals. westkycat would be happy (I think he said he likes the Titans).



    • ClutchCargo
      10:38 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I think westkycat’s Titans comment was more a geographical argument, and that he hates non-UK sports discussion on a UK fan site.

      True, and there are Reds and Bengals sites out there, but as I also told him, Matt has refused to not do politics, and it’s his site.

      Well, first of all, Matt asked if we fall back this weekend.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:31 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I used to do business with a company that is based in India, in the India time zone, which is 9.5 hrs ahead of EST. Not confusing or inconvenient at all. I think I would have to give up and put a separate clock on the wall to keep up with that if we had that time change.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:40 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I think fall-back is in October. I vote that we just stay with DST. I hate it when it gets dark at 5:00.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:43 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      Agree, RCF. I’m even struggling right now with it getting dark at 8:00. I had gotten into a pattern of mowing the lawn at 7 pm, which makes it tough to get done before dark now.

      It’s early November now, and I agree, just stay sprung forward.

      Ya’ll may be right. But I don’t see any way Gatewood is playing against Auburn, so I think it’s a non-issue.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:29 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      Realme and I are scoundrels. But, why should a former school have anything to say about a guy’s future? If we, don’t get Gatewood and Sarr immediately eligible…I’m going to get pretty mad.



    • ClutchCargo
      10:36 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I get that you have to do whatever it takes to win, but I don’t think I could agree to something like that and then not follow through. I’m probably a chump for thinking like that, but it’s the right thing to do if we really believe the coaching staff is teaching these guys how to be adults and not just football players.



    • runningunnin.454
      10:41 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      Matt wrong again; yes, the sec will have to approve the Gatewood eligibility since he transferred from another sec school.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      10:52 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      My thing is what if we get 2 QBs hurt against Auburn? Not likely, but Scalzo is out. Beau Allen might turn out to be a phenom, but he’s a freshman, and at least Gatewood has taken a few snaps and been in college 1 year.

      I mean, seriously. Dude will go on tv, in a hoodie with no tshirt under it in the middle of summer. I hope he is better at doing laundry than all the other domestic stuff (except scented candles), but I suspect he just wears them once and throws them in a trash pile.

      I remember him saying once “Who wears cargo shorts?!” Uh, lots of people dude. It was one example of many that just because he doesn’t use/wear them…and who made him a fashion critic anyway? Word to Realme!

      Hah, I said I would leave; but, I didn’t, I went the other way. Reminds me when I was 17, my cousin Mary Beth wanted to fix me up on a blind date with a friend of hers,
      I said obviously you don’t know my policy about blind dates!
      She said, “come on, her name is Tammy, she’s a lingerie model, and she’s lonely”.
      I said Oh, you do know my policy.

      Ha ha! In all seriousness, there’s a huge difference for me between a joke about a hypothetical young woman and someone actually creeping on specific college age girls.

      Now if you ever were one of the dudes who liked to rate the women on those gross “girl(s) of the day wants KSR notes” or whatever, tisk tisk.

      I will say this about that call (which I didn’t hear…was away from my desk): that guy may be a creeper, I don’t know. However, what I do know is if someone (male or female) chooses to dress provocatively, they don’t get to choose the age (or any other trait) of who ogles them. The Good Book teaches us to dress modestly (I Timothy 2).



    • Realme
      11:56 am September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I don’t fully disagree with you, I find some of the things women wear in public disturbing nowadays, but… an adult male is 100% personally responsible for any ogling or creeping that he does.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      12:13 pm September 15, 2020 Permalink

      Yes they are. And some will ogle regardless, but some things are kind of a 2 way street.



    • RealCatsFan
      1:06 pm September 15, 2020 Permalink

      I get it – some women WANT to be oogled, and dress that way with a purpose. But there are also some who do not have that as their intention. You can’t expect women to walk around in a burka to keep the creeps from whistling at them. And if they want to exercise in public, they should be able to wear shorts and a running singlet without some knuckle dragger howling at them. My daughters play volleyball, and the volleyball tights that they wear are very form fitting. It’s just what just about every player in that sport wears. I guess I should just be glad they are not wearing what some of the women’s pro beach players have on.

    The Uranium plant that Matt was talking about reminds me of the chemical plant that my wife used to work for. She would come home with headaches from the fumes because they used to prop the door from the chemical mixing room open because it got hot in there. Then all the fumes got sucked right into her office. After working there, she developed cancer, while pregnant with our second. We got her the hell out of there. She’s fine now, so we are blessed, but I’m still mad about the total disdain shown for those employees. She wasn’t the only one who worked there that developed cancer. Probably at least a dozen others.

      Radium Girls is a great book if you want to really be disturbed These women were expected to use their lips to make a point on their paint brush in order to paint glow in the dark watch faces. They had their bodies destroyed head to toe, because the radium was replacing the calcium in their bones, in addition to straight poisoning them. One went to the dentist and a piece of her jaw just came right out.

      We actually consulted a lawyer and were told that Kentucky is a workman’s comp state, which make it difficult to sue them outright for damages. And proving that the chemical exposure was the cause of the cancer would have been difficult.
