Non-football related stuff that really makes your day

Must have been another one of threads that got deleted by the server glitch.


My 17 year old just applied to Annapolis and West Point.

Odda are against him getting in but I give him credit for thinking about his future and even trying!

If he doesn't make one of those two he has UCLA as his 1st choice
then UofA for backup if he doesn't get any scholarships and has to pay tuition (in-state cheaper then out-of-state).

He's been a honor student his whole life from elementary school so I think he'll get at least some scholarships. He's also been taking college classes through the H.S. for double credits (HS & college), his whole load next year save 1 class is dual credits.

Congrats to you and your son, King. Entry to the Military Academies are more likely when your Federal Representative and Senator supplies a letter of recommendation.

He has done a little research finding out who and where he needs to send a letter asking for just that. I was under the impression a recommendation was required for all applicants so I told him to start composing a letter of request.

The abbreviated version of the old thread title lacks a certain je ne sais quoi.

BTW, I really had the urge to type "non-football-related stuff" but that can't be right. Where should the hyphen stay/go?

Now if you would only get rid of that goofy thumbs up icon...

Is there any way you can disable those things for threads. They are irritating as hell

( and yes I'm being a grumpy bastard. So what?)

Wrong. The contraction for "you all" is y'all, but the contraction for "ya all" is ya'll.

A southern girl showed up at the bank in Mobile with $100, all in quarters. The banker looked at her and said "Mah, mah, little gurl did you hoard all those quarters yo'self?"

The girl looked at him and said, "why no suh, Mah sistah whored some of them"

You know what's funny about the you all discussion? I used to use y'all but one day over at the WX forum Larsky pontificated about the correct contraction being ya'll and I've used it that way ever since. I should do my own research, eh?
