    ......however....
    I realize the tough part of their schedule is
    coming up.
    5 tough games in a row in October.
    But I thought I'd be digusted by now !
    .
    Hey.....I gave up watching my NY Mets when Harvey got hurt.
    Baseball ?......what's that ?
    I'll pick it up again, when the playoffs start.
    J-E-T-S !!!!!

    With hockey season starting and Winnipeg now having the jets back for all of 20 seconds i was thinking.......why would he be watching the jets, then i read the post. Ha ha. In canada our CFL season ends in November so hockey & football do not overlap for long, i forget about the NFL till superbowl.

    keep watching, just don't blink! I'm sure old Rex will be back to his old tricks in no time and they'll still manage to miss the playoffs.

    The way your write is very interesting to me:
    .
    I'm not trying to be a dick hole
    .
    But can you explain to me why you write the way you do?

    I've been a member of many message boards over the last 10 years and have never seen anyone write in your fashion so I'm just kinda curious.

    dfalk,
    I'm not sure I have an answer.
    Some people don't like it ( I've read a post or two ).
    *
    It may have come from going back to college as an adult -
    I found I needed a quick, visual way to view/study my notes.
    So.....no long sentences and no long written paragraphs.
    ( think = quick vertical notes w/ lots of spacing --
    not reading a novel )
    It helped me immensely -- and some people I let see my notes
    commented on how easy/quick it was to SEE the information ).
    *
    Some Trip Reports bore me to tears cos I have to read a novel.
    Paragraph after paragraph ? :rolleyes2:
    *
    Thanks for asking --
    sorry I didn't answer sooner but I'm not in my normal routine
    due to lower back issues.
    :thumbsup:

    I do find the short lines easy to read, but I think the most interesting part to me is the . or * on each blank line. is that part of the note taking strategy? no blank lines?

    That does make a lot of sence. I can see it being pretty helpful as far as note, quick, simply, and to the point.

    Titans are King of The Hill Pick for me this week.
    Was going to use Denver, but I prefer to save Denver for Jags if I survive next two weeks
