I Should Clarify: Weekend Update

Sell it (45 maybe) or break it open (likely 20back if I'm real lucky)?

Let's See Who's Out There: Karma Check for All of Us

say you found a 24 pk retail box sitting with the blasters you were oggling just for curiosity's sake.
...say you didn't see a sticker on it, so you just "left" it in your basket while you bought food, cat litter etc. You know, just to see what's what.
then you run it under one of the price check machines and it comes up "item not found".
this does not deter you, nor do you put it back.
while checking out, and here's where it gets dicey...
the checker asks you how much it is.

"I think 20 dollars like the other boxes?" you reply.
Checker: :scanblip:..."yep". [he keys in 19.99]
you take your bags and go on about your day.

now the question I am asking you:

It's a Good Time to be a Wisconsin Sports Fan: Living in Virginia, Where It Is Still Warm...

to be sure, nothing to scoff at.
We've been trying to crack that damn egg for decades.
But now I am just feeling done with baseball.
 I hear Wes McElroy givin' me the business about how good of a World Series it was turning out to be, but I just wanted to see my brewers on the MAINSTAGE one time. I am definitely not saying it can't be done, and I was more in love with this particular group of characters than any crew since Cirillo, BClark, Counsell Bill Hall and Overbay were producing, and Turbo was closing.
these kids, plus Counsell, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude to for bringing what I am sure is invaluable experience to the clubhouse, just had me all the way. I want to thank Nyjer for holding it together. It is not easy to contain that kind of energy. I won't get into anything about Prince, he wanted to win as bad as anyone. I could not be happier about the rising of Ryan Braun. I bought into him when he came out of Miami, and will proudly support his future Captainship of the Floating Keg.

That being said, I have alot to fall back on. I am a fan of wisconsin sports from Brady St. and River West and from Green Bay to Sturgeon Bay. (sorry Racine)

     that means I get to ride a few waves this winter...
This guy has his eye out for me.

Alas Though, I am back at school and am working with some of the toughest groups of students yet.
I seem to keep getting better at letting it all roll off, but in the end...

Great football game.
Great time to have roots in Wisconsin, and an interest in sports.
Cheers dad, wherever you are.

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Plunge right through that line!

* Run the ball clear down the field,

A touchdown sure this time. (U rah rah)

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Fight on for her fame

Fight! Fellows! - fight, fight, fight!

We'll win this game.

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Stand up, Badgers, sing!

"Forward" is our driving spirit,

Loyal voices ring.

On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!

Raise her glowing flame

Stand, Fellows, let us now

Salute her name!
