Sandy's is the bar/restaurant owned by my friend Brian. I have been to Kallan's in Sugarloaf, it's OK but Sandy's is my home away from home.
Wait... Brian owns Sandy's?

:cautious:

I was sitting next to Ant for the final game where LT broke the record. The stadium shook with the cheers. The fans were on their feet clapping and screaming for a long time. Even some of the Denver fans there acknowledged what LT and the team accomplished.

Depends on the Week
Waxing a little nostalgic on this one, for a reason.

My father was a big Redskin fan. In 2001, Marty coached them and they started off embarrassing themselves with an opening day loss to the Chargers, 30-3. After Week 3, the Redskins were 0-3 with a point differential of -96 after getting bombed by KC.

I remember telling him "Don't worry Dad, Marty will get it right and they will get better." He died two days later of a heart attack while we fished in the surf at the Outer Banks.

Why did I bring this up? My father in law, who was a great comfort to me in the days and weeks after my father's death and is one of the most decent people I have ever known, died yesterday at age 85.

RIP Clint :cry: Love you.

Edit: Writing this just now brought me to tears publically, in the United Club at ORD, Concourse B...

Condolences RamAirVA.

I know what it is like to loose people close to us. Makes the silly things we fight so hard for like sports seem trivial to say the least.

If I can do anything for you or your family, please let me know.

C - Thanks for the thought. Frankly, I can't decide which is worse...watching a loved one die in a flash (my Dad) or watch someone gradually deteriorate over time (my father in law).

Both suck equally bad.
