The key is to have a very fast computer with dsl at work. I post while i am working a lot of times or when i am taking a break. I go to 2 different towns so i can only post at certain times.

That all depends...do you have a wife/family at home? And if you say yes....what kind of a wife/family is/are she/they? (<Hope you can understand that...I barely can myself.)

Some guys sleep at their office just to have a vacation from being at home! They literally have their home set up with a drive thru window, so they can come get dinner, without having to stay!!...Now that's sad! :D

As a boss, and hard worker....I bet you do type fast....with over 1300 posts!! :D

I was just thinking to myself...wow, the same guys are on here every day...and some of us, ALL DAY...how do they do it....without working?

I post while at work and home. At work I have time between calls to come on here.. I find this site more fun than the 3 or 4 others I go to so I come here more.

There is another I site I go to, but it is a non football site. It is more of a work related site. So I go there about 3 days a week and stir crap up and then leave..haha.

18 I think. I got layed off (my request) in 09-02. So I was like "I'll just kick back on the farm and sell some hay, I'll be fine."... That year, I think everybody in Louisiana had hay. I couldnt give it away. I had to rent out the front bedroom at the farm house to a friend and his girlfriend to pay the bills. I took a little part time job for a friend of mine in a cajun cafe' type thing. That was enough to make my truck notes.. Then we would kill 'coons and sell them over on MLK Blvd for 15 each. Seriously, I dont think I have ever shot that many shots in a 3 month period before or since..haha...

Had a lot fun being irresponsible and stuff.. I even had a little 18y/o girlfriend for a while. So everybody was like "you're so kool, look at hot chick you got". Meanwhile, I was thinking "this little girl cant cook, she's got to go.".

Yeah I have a 8 year old son and little girl whose estimated time of arrival is December 22.....so the misses understands that me and my son try to do all the "Boy" stuff that we can now that a girl is about to join the team. I'm in front of a computer all day so it's the last thing I want to do when I get home. That's like being a mechanic...working all day then going home to work on your car.

We catch a couble of High School games every weekend. I think(hope) that will stick with him forever.


I dont know if I asked this before, but this is for us few here that have kids. As a man...who loves sports...i.e Football and Boxing I think we would feel proud once our kids start playing these sports. Well recently my son started playing football...his first year of tackle...and his grandmother signed him up for boxing....I am a nervous wreck...I cant watch...I mean technically that IS my baby ya know....I thought only the mothers had these feelings....what can I do to get over it....I can handle the football a little better than the boxing...I think when he gets his first bloody nose I might jump in the ring and attack the other kid....Need advice....HELP.

I dont have kids, but I from a sons point of view, its a good thing to be nervous to see your kid fight, let alone play football, my perents didnt let me play football until I was in 7th grade (even then i faked my mom signuter to play football (yeah they found out)), but its a good thing to give your kid some freedom to explore sports, because its somthing that build charter. I know if I hadnt played basketball when I was In elemtry school and part of middle school, I wouldnt have been able to handle loss, or pressior in middle school, and High school football.

In Basketball as a child, I was pretty tall and skinny for my age (to bad I stoped growing sophmore year) i was about 5'5" in 6th grade i was one of the taller fellas and i was about 5'0 4th grade. I was on my leagles winningst team for my first three years playing we didnt lose the entire time we played, then my final year of playing in that leagle, we lost the first 5 games of the season, and I remember after the second loss, i threw a chair across the the room, I was in like 6th grade, and was bawling cause i had never been beaten before, it was tough, but I learned how to bounce back from it, it made me a better person, and we ended up winning the next 7 games to and beat my former team in the championship game at reuion arena (we rented out reuion once a year for the championship games.) It was my greatist memory ever coming out and beating my former team...

My point is, Kids remember the these things, it makes a kid feel good when there dad is watching them from the stands, It give the cofidence and makes them want to play better. Support your son, in what ever sport he plays...no matter if you hate that sport. Just support him, because chances are at 8yrs old he'll end up having a new faviort sport when middle school and high school comes around

I know....when I joined the Army..I would get letters from my sister saying my Mom cried herself to sleep every night. But when I would talk to her she did her best to comfort me and seemed strong. But yeah, I know there will be little boys out there like I was...and I think having a son is easier than having a daughter, I'm already going crazy thinking about the dating thing lol. :D

man having a 13 year old sister, i dont worry about it, but its annoying as heck to hear her friend call and her sit there on the couch and talk about that stuff, girls, why cant they be as easy and not as complex as guys, they cant figure out why i dont do anything on sunday.....me-its sunday, football is on so i have to stay home and watch it like EVERY OTHER guy.....girl replies- just tape the game and watch them later...i then tell them that its pointless cause i know the score and waht not, doesnt seem to sink in, plus i dont have enough time during the week....i have 10 hours straight on sundays

I played soccer for a really long time as a kid and my dad being the engineer he is would always try and bring us over to the sidelines by ourselves and grill us on why we weren't doing this an that, etc. It made halftime miserable along with the ride home. Please don't do that to your children. I love my dad very much but I wish he hadn't done all that...

What's the problem with your daughter dating DaDa? Did you ever do anything to a girl she wouldn't let you do? Girls are humans just like boys. They have feelings and they want to explore just the same. It isn't any different. I think the biggest problem with this is not being the only male in your daughters life. I know. I have three of them and the youngest is a Junior in college. After a while, you get to where it doesn't bother you. They are what you are, remember that. Your ways and attitudes have to change as soon as they are born. No more porn on the TV, language has to change, etc., etc. But the best thing you do for a child is be a caring, loving parent, spoil them rotten, and get them involved in Sunday School. They won't let you down and they will grow up thanking you when they have children of their own. Another thing to keep you in line is to remember this one important lesson. They will judge you someday. You have the opportunity to make that as positive as you want it to be. Good luck and let the dating thing rest!

My family is mostly boys...and boys do....well BOY stuff...I just think once my daughter gets to that age...I dont want to be TOO overprotective...you have daughters so I'm sure you went through that phase so I guess I'm just gonna have to get over it...this will be "daddy's little girl" :D

The hardest part is shraing your little girl with another male. I guess it goes back to the primate ages. We are stingy by nature and we want to do everything we can to make sure what is ours stays ours. What you come to realize is you don't really lose your daughter, unless you choose to, you gain a dear friend who wants to protect your little girl as much as you do. One thing to keep in mind with girls though, they'll always be "daddys little girl" no matter how old they get. You are fixing to experience a totally differnet kind of attachment, one that can be so rewarding. I envy you. It has been a lot of fun.

I think fathers biggest concerns are that other boys will be like they used to be. For the most part, it's true that they do the same things. If you teach your kids right from wrong, you can choose to trust that they'll do what's right.

I played for Lufkin last season and I currently attend SFA I took summerschool at SFA and I already have 14hrs. I plan on wlaking on to the football team in the spring. I could have been on the practice squad this season but I wanted to make sure I got my grades in. Currently I have no job but I do have an interview at ETI sometime this week so thats 8.50 an hour and I have an 11 month Old Child who sometimes I think he is the sun of Satan. That is about it besides I go to every panther football game.

You have to get that kid in line early on. It might get bad if you don't. It's tough having a kid and trying to get through college. For $8.50 an hour, I hope you get some more funding from other sources because that's not much to survive on.

Yeah I understand but everything is getting taking care of though. Thanks for the tip.
