I don’t see that as a “hot take”.

I hadn’t thought about it but it is a little interesting that he hasn’t done anything like that yet.

I think that Adam, of all people, gets a temporary pass as he gets himself up and moved out. 

 

(For context for the others, Pente was wondering why Jones hasn't done a "thank you, Baltimore" ad/post yet, when guys like Markakis have put up full-pages in the newspaper before.)

I’m fine with giving him a pass... it Tony is saying people have mentioned it and that he finds it interesting.

I don’t know what he finds interesting about it but speaking for myself, I wonder if he is upset at the organization. It could be that he simply hasn’t had a chance but he will.

But I wonder if there is something deeper to it than that.

But again, I don’t see it as some hot take. He’s not slamming his fist on the table and demanding things and calling him out. I just don’t think this should be labeled as a hot take.

Ugh, we've been lucky and haven't had that one around this year, but last year we got hammered by it. Hope you guys clear it out quick!

Got a voicemail from a number in Morocco where a robot told me my social security number has been suspended due to suspicious activity.

An hour later got the same voicemail from the same robot but in New York.

Oh no. What will I do?!?!?

I've been getting a ton of calls from Slovenia, Belarus, Morocco, etc. over the last two weeks. Can't click ignore quicker.

I think I’ve gotten at least four robo calls today.

It’s getting out of hand.

I’m up to 7 today, and 12 since Monday. Often my ringer is off. But now I’m getting a voicemail from them too. That’s what’s pissing me off. Because a voicemail usually means important, if I don’t recognize the number.

I like the one that leaves me a voicemail about the $250K business loan I've been approved for and to call them back "at the number that showed up on your caller ID" to claim it.

Two of them.

1. As if we didn’t know, ”they” are always listening. Took a boxing class at the gym. Afterward put my ear buds in. First song up...Saturday nights alright for fighting.

I guess it didn’t find Eye of the Tiger first.

2. I need to do more with my left arm. (No dick jokes necessary). After the boxing class my dominant right arm is fine. My left arm is hanging like a gorilla. Like I just threw 500 fastballs with it. Not sure how to compensate. I’ve been throwing right handed for 30 years. Little late to start the other shoulder. Not gonna go to the gym and only work out the left arm and not the right.

$450 later we think but aren't sure that our <2 year old lab has torn his (dog version of an) ACL. He's zonked out on sedatives and pain killers now, need to try to get him to a veterinary surgeon in the next couple daysfor further diagnosis. The emergency vet couldn't feel his femur shift freely from the upper bone when she inspected him, which apparently is the telltale sign, so maybe we will get lucky and it's just a muscle strain or something.

Mack I'm struggling with the same issue and have been since I got to Bahamas 3 years ago.  Extreme rest for 3 weeks, which holy shit is impossible for a young lab, but do it, then try a small dose aspirin every day with glucosamine etc and see if that manages it.  

 

But I'm trying to kick the can until I can get him stateside.  9 more months to go.   Best of luck man.  Its a brutal feeling.

Highly, highly recommend cannabis based CBD oil for dogs in pain. Sooooooo much better for them than that stuff. Really sorry Mack and McNulty... hate to see that. I'd be losing my mind if my scottie Ellie (named after Elrod Hendricks) were dealing with that.
