  1. Can't see the pictures, but can only imagine. Ouch.
  2. I'm very surprised about the Holland-Brazil game. It seemed as if Brazil came completely unglued. Goodbye Dunga
  3. This has been addressed recently. One of our members on our local forum emailed Police Chief Tom Casady and received a very decent email back. Heres what he sent us The shirt idea is something we've tossed around and will probably be doing soon. http://s87301718.onlinehome.us/images/inprogress.jpg < rough sketch of the design. Right now we are making an even stronger push than last year. This time we have a much better plan in place and its slowly coming together. I'm really excited, I think this time we might have a legitimate chance at getting a track
  4. that is one of the basics of the drag strip... theres no way there would be one without coverage. The problem with the opposition is this noise issue, they will not listen to scientific study.
  5. We did this, we packed the city council meeting room and outside into the hallways... easily 150 supporters vs the half filled opposition (maybe 20 or so showed). No dice. There are running polls on the news website that show a 90/10 split in favor of a dragstrip. I'm not getting my hopes too terribly up, but with the current economic state and the fact that Lincoln lost the State Fair (more money leaving the city, go figure), this could be the best chance to capitalize on a track.
  6. This is the most frustrating part of all... there were studies done at the University of Nebraska showing that these type of venues do bring in a good chunk of dollars to the cities that harbor them. Not just the city, but all of the businesses surrounding (restaurants, hotels, gas stations, etc) Also did sound studies and showed that sound would be negligible to the farm houses in the area due to the way the track would be built. This apparently did not matter There are some very bullheaded people that are unfortunately in a position of power that is not letting this go through. We are going to continue to push this though and on that facebook group alone I have nearly 1200 people join since Wednesday with several thousand more waiting in invites.
  7. I can't remember why, but there was some reasoning as to why we couldn't do this. The land picked out for our drag strip site was located off an interstate with very little in the way of nearby housing. The biggest deal apparently was it being next to a cemetery. A cemetery that had literally, 1 to 2 processions PER YEAR.
  8. A certain incident that involved "street racing" has rekindled an awareness for needing a drag strip in our county http://www.kolnkgin.com/news/headlines/50904922.html Watch the video too. Andy is a good friend of mine, as is Mike (who was not on the video, but was the other ticketed driver) Now, this is not to condone street racing, but rather to give us an outlet to which we can enjoy our hobby legally. For those of you who aren't aware, a gentleman by the name of Greg Sanford was willing to foot the entire bill to have a dragstrip put in a small town just outside of lincoln. He had the land bought and everything. Only needed approval to have a motorsports complex built specifically. After a few hearings (one of which our own local forum flooded with members to show for support), ultimately it was shot down. Not only do I and many of my fellow peers/gearheads disagree with this decision, but we will not give up on trying. I created this facebook group to help raise awareness again that there is tons of support to have a dragstrip built. I understand that none of you will probably be local or effect you in any way, but I'm sure some of you pitsters can understand our plea for something that many of us find necessary to have. There are a lot of benefits to having this drag strip built, one of the biggest being money pumped into our city/county/state. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#...id=116705279461 Feel free to voice your opinions or stories!
  9. Thank you all for the sound advice. I also questioned whether I should go to my general practitioner or to a specialist. There are a few sports medicine offices around that have surgeons who deal with such related injuries and can probably do a better job of diagnosing the problem. I'm just afraid to see the bill This football season has ended though and there are 2 months before the next.. my hope/goal was to just rest it this summer, take a month off anything strenuous ( I have a very hard time saying no to playing bball/fball, call it a curse haha) and hoping stretching will help. Either way, I appreciate the responses! If anyone has anything else to share, feel free!
  10. I'm 23 and this started coming about after winter indoor flag football. I've played outdoors for the last 3 months. Most my injuries heal even while I'm active, but this one has been persistent.
  11. Ok, so I know I need to probably see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. I'm waiting on my health insurance to clear first. But I've been dealing with a problem for the last few months thats irritating at times. I have a pain in my inner part of my hip (around the groin area) that seems to happen when I try to lift or support my leg bending upward (raising my knee up in the air). The pain will start in the hip and it radiates down my inner thigh to the inner part of my knee. I'm just wondering if anyone here has experienced anything similar and what it was. Thanks!
  12. mustangs are silly I kid, cool car. I'm still a bowtie guy though...
  13. So the car stuff is cool and all, but now my Sundays are all about playing flag football. Its a pretty good league setup here and a buddy of mine who plays on another team usually comes by to take pics with his camera setup. Nikon D90 with some fancy lens that cost like over 1000 dollars combined haha My display of UPs (not bad for a fat guy) http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_4222.jpg My receiver back of the end zone tippytoe-ing it. http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_4320.jpg I thought I overthrew him http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5301.jpg Nope, nothin but money http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5302.jpg The dude in the middle, his facial expression just cracks me up http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-.../DSC_5208-1.jpg Our new quarterback, cool under pressure http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-.../DSC_5194-1.jpg Don't ask, I'm not sure why I made that face. http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5939.jpg Our star safety (and receiver on offense) pullin down the ball 1 handed for the INT. He got out of the end zone, pitched it to our CB who took it 80 yards for the TD http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5935.jpg Same superstar, same result. 60 yard TD reception http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5924.jpg Sweet catch on the run by Jarrett... who stands in at around 5'6 http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5915.jpg The guy on the right was opposing QB of the team that was created by a couple of guys who left my team from last season. All he did was talk garbage weeks leading up to the game. When we got 10 points up on him, I think he caved under the pressure. He actually vomited on the field http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5928.jpg Underthrown pass to yours truly http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5893.jpg It doesn't matter, I'll catch anything, anywhere I know how to use my 6'3 frame. http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d92/srt-4_uk/DSC_5894.jpg Anyways I figured I'd share, I haven't been on here for a while. Plus I'm lookin over the pics and kinda surprised that I look as different as I do. Last season I was in around 290 lbs. This season I'm at 250 lbs. I can definitely feel the difference.
  14. i've basically got a race clutch Spec stage 4, 6 puck unsprung... they say its not daily friendly but its not THAT bad, it does engage pretty harsh. This clutch will take those drops all day
  15. yeah it'd have to be. usually the ring gear/posi fail on the 10 bolt, it was a lil weird the axle snapped. I'm happy it lasted 4 hard runs!
  16. thanks, yeah thats what you gotta do to launch good... need to keep that nose up, means all the weight is transferring to the rear and putting power to the ground where it belongs http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v346/gbp.../carnage001.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v346/gbp.../carnage003.jpg thats the snapped axle haha.
  17. however the pass after that, i shredded the driver side rear axle.... woops. Guess it didn't like that 5000rpm clutch drop. Gets out of the hole pretty good for a car with stock power basically
  18. I'm not buying that 13.0 1/4 mile yet. Buddy of mine has a 2006 Charger SRT8 (4200 lbs, 425 hp) and pulled off a 13.5 with a few mods done (ecu reflash, mopar CAI, exhaust)
  19. Nice looking car but its probably going to be pig heavy and a high 13 vehicle from the showroom floor, even in SRT trim.
  20. i mean inadequacy during the game, you can't say brady had a good game throwing 3 picks. but yeah, Favre didn't do much better, i feel sick right now. My heart went from 200 BPM to 5BPM in an instant.
  21. No, it counts when his TEAM wins. Brady kept the Chargers in the game. You don't throw those 3 picks, and it could have been a lil uglier for SD. They won though, overcame their inadequacy at QB and are moving on to the Super Bowl... congrats to them.
  22. tom looks great givin up the ball 3 times. Normally I'd say its just a bad game for him, but the way people deify Brady, it pretty much proves hes still human and hes plenty prone to losing like anyone else. The Pats are lucky they are playing a crappy Rivers and no healthy LT in this game...
  23. igor olshansky... what a silly goober.
  24. Barrett Jackson is a fraud... last I knew they were under investigation for bidding up their own cars to make something seem more desirable than it actually is... people jump on it because they think its something hot and start to bid along... stupid seeing some of these cars that are really not THAT special go for ASTRONOMICAL prices.
