Yes, let's pass the tissue around and let's have a group hug to get through this traumatizing time bawlin

I'm cutting my expenses accross the board to the bare minimum, and that includes the annual hosting and email costs of our website, at least for this year.

But this message board is free, so nothing will change here smile


I"ve become a cheap_skate until I"m more confident in my money outlook. This isn't 4 years ago when I had big cash flow with no problems on the horizon.

Nobody ever went to that damn website, anyway lol


Except maybe to check out the chicks on Page 5 pecker


But I can renew the hosting at any time. And besides......I need to rebuild that website anyway. But there's NO way I'm doing that anytime soon, not this year.


So as of the 21st of this month......the website will be down. But I renewed the BC domain name smile

I may be cheap right now, but I'm not stupid king

LOL! Good one Kurt.

Seriously Mighty ... first, thanks for footin the bill while it was up. Second, I think Blue Shoes spreadsheets work just fine. As I suggested at the end of last season, all you need to do is add a spread sheet that lists all the past award winners from past years, updated once a year ...

GREAT idea SA hellyes

You can see why Cravn wanted to be a NFL kicker......kick ball run off field......sit down.

soccer = kick ball around field until clock says stop kicking ball around field.

Explains why basketball is 1000000 times more fun to play.

I still go out on my concrete court and take a few shots Basketball

Can't imagine any time in my life where taking a round ball out and kicking it around the field for 90 minutes or 90 seconds could be fun. lol


GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL.......well maybe laughing lol

Quantum Mechanic to you gramps lol

Hell no problem with you doing that and even better if you did it like Dean cheerstoyou

But watching the 110th US Open and the Yankee game at the same time today beats the round balls off of soccer joker

You could see double eagles hit (like I just saw on a par 5) AND Lee Westwood wears a UPS on his golf shirt.

Never seen that on some espanol or asian dude running around in shorts trying to girl kick another player and then some dude waving a colored flag if he catches him.

(and that no-goal they pulled on the US team Rolling Eyes )

And you know I have no problem with a stack of Ben Franklins thankya

Happy Fathers Day old timer......all the rest of you too cheerstoyou

Unless I missed it, what's the cost?

Agreed that Blue's spreadsheets were outstanding. No question, an incredible job. clap
If I could do better than hunt-and-peck, I'd offer to help.

I think there's enough geeks here to step up a bit each year and not make things all fall on one's shoulders. Blue's not complained about it, but there will come a time when it's too much... It would be cool to get a rotation going.

Just food for thought.

Ah the web stuff is easy for geeks to do and Blue has comcast which makes it even easier.

I was doing this a decade ago when we had the good espn profile pages I had more people than I can remember asking me every day to fancy up their profile page since I know html and bbcode and on espn I knew the tricks to cover up all the espn stuff with your own pictures.

And all the color tricks too.......of course I did all that on our post Miguel site that one year too,

I did it on a free site and I don't remember what one of these costs but I used to check this phBB site with all the other people that use this.

The thing is all of the stuff can still be right here on the Forum.

So no big deal.

What's going away is the web site that hosts/stores the archives, Mighty's wonderful "Page 5" photos, the archives, etc. The forum will continue as-is so picks and results will continue to be handled as they've been in the past and I'll continue to post the results/standings and store them on the Comcast server (no charge to me as a Comcast internet subscriber).

I believe there's an approximate $70 per year charge to maintain the "BookieChallenge.com" domain name and Mighty's indicates he's renewed that even though it will, in effect, "point" to a non-existent web site.

Website going down this year Empty Surfin' Ducks

Post  Magic on 6/22/2010, 12:49 pm



We got a blue styro surf board to put in the pond since the spoiled wild ducks would float around on a board I put out there before.

(probably hard to see them with the brown grass in the background but the wife had the camera so it's her fault)
Website going down this year Surfinducks

Sarah and her 4 kids won't fly near Indy or Penn. since we feed them bread and "chicken scratch" every day.

The kids actually can't fly yet but they are getting close.

Pond seems to be full of trout since we probably shot enough otters ramborampage

Well it is nice to sit by the pond on a nice day with your favorite beer Cravn.......must admit this place is getting to be too much work so I don't get to spend nearly as much time out there as I should.

And I can't pay anyone to do it since I am too picky and also don't let anyone past the gate unless it is an old friend.

Yeah believe it or not my Streak for the Ca$h picks have been good when I pick a soccer but man I just am finding it hard to pick this one.

They have to win.....no draw of any kind.

It starts before I get up so if Im picking it I will have to do it now.

You really think the USA will win this??

Well Cravn I almost got back outta bed around 4am just to see if you could talk me in to picking our USA team but I didn't......and I didn't pick them but when I get up to check and see how it went the game was still on and it was 0 - 0......so not until Art Donovan finally kicked that ball in did I wish I would have.

What was it?

About 85 minutes of nothing?

The I go and pick the Jays vs Philly and it is 0 - 0 top of the 9th

I lose that one 1 - 0.......MLB soccer I guess.

Seconds later I pick the Angels to beat the Dodgers.......and got a damn win but starting over at 1 again Rolling Eyes

Watching the US Open last weekend was much more fun and I never saw any of those asinine HORNS either laughing

That got me to order a new 58 degree Cleveland wedge and a new driving range mat for home to practice and keep any visitors from chopping up my tee boxes cheerstoyou

Even went shopping with the wife today and bought a couple dozen golf balls on sale for $10 and a new bag for only $30

She did ask me why I have a soccer ball in my stash that is flat and looks like I stepped on it.

Guess I better figure out how to fill it with air so the goofy kids can kick it around the front yard

(putting green is off limits and I tease em all about the "spankin' stick" all the time lol )

It was 91 minutes of Nil-Nil soccer, and of course the USA had a goal taken off the board, with a phantom off sides call. Try as they may the USA prevails.

2 ties and a win and we move on to the sweet 16 ahead of the Brits!!
