    • Hey the greatest invention has got to be the invention of "RAMEN." It is the greatest food...and so easy to make, and it's a full meal too. Oh man I'm definitely gonna be grubin' some Ramen in college, especially when ROC is staight broke as a joke. Hey drop me your thoughts on Ramen...perhaps your favorite flavor.

  • Thaks for a great year (Baseball)
    • I just want to take some thread space here and thank a group of guys. Justin Plummer, Dave Stroup, Brian Bach, and Justin Parker. We had a great year and it sucks today thinking about what could have been done differently last night. All 4 of yall were looked up to by everyone and all of yall supplied the leadership on or team. Plummer, we've been on the same team for 5 years in a row now and we've had some good times. I'm sad to see them go. I'll always remember the freekin HR fest you put on that one week a couple years back. South West Little League never knew what hit them. Stroup, you had to go and break your wrists before that year in fall ball. But i can forgive you. Afterall, you do have the best mechanics i've ever seen. Bach, what can I say. Oh wait I know, DAMNIT BACH...Shut up shit heads... You were the man this year. 8-2, thats pretty damn good. Good luck to you next year and you know I'm gonna be out there giving you hell every damn game you play at home next year. JP, Chuck. You were a beast this year at 2nd and when you stepped in the batters box. You were probably the most consistant hitter we had this year. I took prode in lettin you punch me in the shoulder everytime i said How now brown cow. You'll be missed, along with the infamous "UHHHHH OHHHHHHHHHHH"'s. So its all over now. Another year in the record books as they say. But its not just another year. Probably the most rememberable year all of us will ever have. I know it will be mine.

  • problems with area codes..
    • Does anyone share this same problem I have?? It seems that I will get calls from people trying to call 919-555-XXXX (Where 555-XXXX = my phone number). So there is some confusion, because my area code was 919 like 2 or 3 years ago maybe?, but now it's 336. So maybe some phone company's call tracing/callerid has things confused, because I can't figure it out. When I come home, almost everyday there is a message by some foreign adult that says "You just called my number, please call back", then they leave their number. There is no way anyone could have called them, especially when I've been at school all day. Anyone have any ideas?

  • Observations
    • It has often come to my attention that anonimity breeds boldness, and boldness can be a foolish thing. Reading the message board in the months it has existed have proved to me several facts: When man is not exposed face-to-face with his fellow man, his ability to behave with audacity expands exponentially. Secondly, apparently teenage males have a persistant urge to prove their superiority, by "talking junk" as it is commonly referred to. Perhaps this goes back to prehistoric times when a young male had to prove his dominace in a tribe in order to gain the respect of his peers and females. Well, it is my opinion that we have adapted to a more civil form of existance, where we do not need to need to resort to crude remarks about our brothers. The Greatest Commandment was: Love thy neighbor as I have loved you. I think we could learn a lot from pondering this. For one moment forget your bruised ego; think about your actions. Then speak with wisdom and restraint. There is a proverb: Never let the sun set on anger.

  • The Infamous J-Roc
    • Someone set this rumor straight. Did J-Roc take it or give it when he was getting it on with Sam Thornton's brother in the hot tub two years ago? Rec-Specs to the full effects biatch

  • Downtown on Lockdown??!
    • I just realized how incredibly hard it will be for anyone to navigate downtown tonight. I think I can go as far as to say that this will be the worst traffic jam downtown has ever seen tonight. Take into account the following:

      1. POP Festival: Blocks 2nd/Liberty, 3rd/Trade, 4th Trade, and 6th Trade. (1000+ people)
      2. Millenium Center: is hosting the Reynolds Prom Upstairs in their main complex. (several hundred people)
      3.The Millenium Underground: is hosting a hardcore/metal show (200-300+ people).

      - Once you factor in the amount of vehicles, not to mention limos, stretch vehicles, vendor trucks, tour buses etc., plus how crappy downtown flow/parking is anyway, you'll realize that somewhere someone is going to have a major delima.

      Just something I was thinking about...
