There's lids, but people often stuff them so full that the lid doesn't really matter. Or the animals just knock the can over.

check for promotions on redskins shop, nfl shop, and nike store. they should be offering free shipping now, and you may even get to skip the sales tax.

if you don't find it in store, try on the jerseys in store, so you know which type/size to order online.

No. It is a Baltimore issue. I spoke to the managers. They do not sell Skins gear in Baltimore. Period. It wasn't just the jersey - no T-shirts, sweat shirts, keychains. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Martial Law declared in Arkansas town.

“Once we have an area that shows a high crime rate or a high call volume, it is our duty and obligation to find out why this is occurring and what we can do to prevent the trend from continuing. Therefore, identifying subjects in those problem areas help us to solve crimes, and hopefully to prevent future crimes.”

And so it begins.....

Gears ground.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Getting into a car accident on Valentine's Day with my date. I was only 5 minutes from her house. I was f'ing pissed.

Luckily it happened on the other side of the road where firetrucks, ambulances and police cars were tending to another accident. Guy rear ended me. I'm assuming from rubbernecking the accident on the other side of the road.

Cops saw everything so I'm not at fault.

to get back to this I actually saw RGIII stuff at the White MArsh Mall last weekend. Amazing because one they were selling stuff and two RGIII is so big now that he can have his stuff sold in the B-more market.

(doing best firstdown impression): Nothing like rear-ending a girl on Valentine's Day...



Glad you're OK. How's the car? Did you still get to see your date?


Rubberneckers should have their licenses revoked...menaces.

Good to hear you're alright D-Rave.

Rubberneckers grind my gears too. Even though I have been known for speeding I'm not one to tailgate slow cars, it doesn't solve anything and you don't know what the person's intentions in front of you are. I had some chick tailgating me last night while I was doing 30 in a 25 in a residential neighborhood, so I did what I always do and I slowed down until she got the message and backed off.

I'm glad that you are as ok as you can be, Rave.

Slightly more general gear grind, I hate that people think they have to be in a rush. If I don't move at the split second the light turns green and the person behind me honks, I promise you they will miss that whole light while I wait for it to turn red. I do over the speed limit if the majority is going that way, but if it's slower because of traffic you don't need to be weaving in and out like crazy people. If someone takes a few seconds or more as they pass an accident, either out of morbid curiosity, or just to see if everyone looks ok, those 2 minutes aren't going to ruin anyone's life. Enough crud puts pressure, and time crimps on life, if something slows it down, let it. The world will be there when you get home or to work, or where ever you are headed.

I lived in NOLA for one year, best year of my life from that perspective, no northeast manic pressures, no idiots honking cause you kept them from starting to move their car forward 2-3 seconds after the light changed.

Life is short, it shouldn't have to be rushed.

Yeah I was actually driving them home. And thanks for the well wishes, guys.

As for the car.



Pretty minimal damage. Got a body shop estimate today at $423 since they don't have to replace the entire bumper. The guy wants to pay out of pocket, which is fine with me.
