Re: Backpacking through the UK and Europe

I went backpacking through France for a month. I got a Eurail pass . This was a great deal as I got to travel by train (non-TGV) as many times as I wanted for a 30-day period. You can get passes that are good for multiple countries as well. I made no plans at all and had a Lonely Planet guide book. ...

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

During that era the players seemed to like kids and they didn't charge a king's ransom for their Autograph>> try doing that today. The kid would be arrested I'm sure. It was a totally different era in pro-sports back then for sure. Kids are a totally different topic. If an athlete can't be bothered...

The days of "Team Loyalty" or pleasing the fans is long over I'm afraid.
The late Don Sutton once said, "I am the most loyal player money can buy." I have fairly extreme views on players and their relationship with management. Suffice it to say, I don't feel bad for the billionaire owners.

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

The way the entire contract talks have stalled and with all the other problems pertaining to his injury I really don't look for Dak to ink a big contract with Dallas when the dust settles. Now I could be wrong and Lord knows I've been wrong more than my share in the past but I also know the convolu...

And being from Texas it just makes good sense.
Not only that, Stafford is from Dallas. He played HS baseball with Clayton Kershaw. Any ways, I am not surprised to hear Dallas' name in the mix for these QB's. I think the Dak decision will be the most interesting of the offseason.

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

Kicking a FG and then not kicking an onside kick is one hell of a way to lose the game.

Very nice. I don't see many pics of Jarosz knives. I think some of his stuff is absolutely gorgeous, like the Model 75.

Re: Sci-fi series

Counterpart. Originally aired on Show Time, now streaming on Amazon Prime. It's not hardcore Sci-fi, but it should have enough to keep you interested (parallel universe, that's not a spoiler). Sadly it is only two seasons, but I think it is definitely worth your time. Clone Wars the series. Yes, I k...

Re: Hank Aaron passed away...

Here is Aaron participating in the 1982 HR Derby of the KBO's inaugural season. By this point, Aaron is 48 years old, and has been retired for six years. He's still cranking them over the fence. He flew all the way to Korea to be a part of their burgeoning baseball culture. https://twitter.com/Danie...

We have "Button Lock" planned , but capacity is an issue.

What other locks would you like to see on Sages?

Maybe something by Demko? I feel like the Triad lock is too closely tied up with Cold Steel for that to happen. The Scorpion or Shark lock would be cool.

Steelers are planning to sign Dwayne Haskins...

Re: Is there a release date for new PM2 S45vn

Never done this myself, but I seen people on here and on YT say that they call the store and ask the rep to verify CQI, blade steel, lamination lines, etc. Might be worth a shot.

Re: What is your dream car if you had unlimited money?

If I am going to select a car in a purely fictional exercise, then I'm going all in on a niche car -- the Caterham 620R. The gentleman in the video below uses the adjective "unhinged" more than once to describe the car. It is utterly impractical, which I think holds all of the appeal. The problem is...

The Mark of the Maker podcast did a show or two on old Randall knives. I think they were sold exclusively through A&F (or they were the first retailer).

Re: NFL Season: 2020-2021

I'm hoping teams reach on QB's so more defense trickles down to the Cowboys picking at 10 There’s a rumor that the Bengals may trade down if Sewell isn’t there at five. This assumes the Bengals want to go o-line with their first pick. They could just keep the pick and go BPA. But that could be a pl...
