    Personal Ballpark Experiences 2004

    Only Ball park I've been to was in 1992 I was in the SkyDome for game 5 of the world series. We were 5 rows from the top straight up from the 1st base bag. Could see everything great. It's been so long I don't remember much about the food or the park it's self. However the atmosphere in the park...

    Do you walk faster than everyone else?

    I have the same problem (7'1") I can walk from one end of the World's largest mall to the other eat lunch and then walk back in under 30 minutes. Most of the time I am in a hurry though.

    Darn, it's cold!

    It's been so cold that at work there are about 25 cars that haven't moved in 3 days because the fuel lines are frozen. I am so happy I got command start installed in my truck last week. Now I can auto set it to start every 2 hours and let it run for 15 mins.

    Cell phones (canada)

    Yeah my Roger's Plan is also a business plan. However I don't understand why people think Roger's coverage is lacking. I get just as good if not better reception (especially clarity) than my friends with Telus. This is an observation in a vast difference of areas from the Rockies to West...

    Website with explanations of hockey 'plays'?

    I also think it's kinda sad that a Canadian needs to ask questions about hockey. I always thought we are all born with hockey knowledge. I also could explain the plays but it would take a while and it's just not the same without the clipboard.

    Stuck in Edmonton, what can I do for a week??

    2 years ago I also would have recommended the Drop of Doom but they took it out. I will also mention the space and science centre again as it is definatly worth checking out. Also if you're into politics the Alberta legislature is a cool place to visit. The night life on both Whyte and Jasper...

    Costco: The Only Company Wal-Mart Fears

    My current Costco card also gives me a 2% discount. My membership each year is free then plus I get money back. Now they pay me to shop there. Plus I love their return policy no hassles. I do find it hard to believe that their CEO caps's his salary at just over $300,000 as their store...

    Need mic suggestion for teamspeak

    The mic I use is similar to the verse 534 however it's black instead of white. It's probably just the older model.

    2003-2004 NHL Thread

    The Oiles are off to a good start this season being undefeated at home. However the loss to Calgary is always hard to take. The win over Colorado made up for it big time though. Ales Hemsky is going to be an amazing player over the next couple years. Go Oilers RIP #37 Dan Snyder

    Can computer use be a factor in retinal detachment?

    I see an opthamologist that specializes in detached retinas as I have a family history of such thing. My Dad has had both retinas detach. The first was his right eye back in about 1988 and they did surgery twice but both times it failed so he's blind in that eye. Then in 1998 the retina detached...

    Any of y'all ever deal blackjack at a casino?

    yeah most casino's I believe use a 6 deck shue. It just means you have 6 of every card instead of one. not a big deal. Great movie with card counting in it is Rain Man.
