Give me plain glazed donuts. Take your little frilly sprinkles and get lost.

There's a place in Chicago called Firecakes that might change your mind. They've got a pistachio glazed old fashioned that is motherforking amazing.

That being said...I love my cinnamon sugar old fashioned from Do-Rite Donuts too.

1. Barry Sanders - I really don't need to add anyone else to this list. Dude was a human highlight reel and easily the best I've ever seen play the game. Sorry his career was pretty much a waste on the WC Ford owned Lions, because I would've loved to see this guy win a title.

The rest...

Charles Woodson - part of this stems from his college accomplishments, but he turned in one hell of a pro career too. One hell of a defender.

Neon Deion Sanders - Guy talked a big game but he backed it up, too.

Herman Moore - fade route into the endzone was almost always his. Hard working guy that I loved watching play in Detroit.

Jason Hanson - yeah, a kicker. But he was always reliable throughout his career in Detroit, and he worked hard here.

I can't recommend it enough. Look up a studio close to you (I go to Arthur Murray), and most places will have a free lesson. Don't need a partner. One of the best things I've ever done for myself.

Granted, it can turn into an expensive hobby in a hurry (especially at places like Arthur Murray/Fred Astaire/etc.), but most places that have social dancing available will tend to have a free group lesson at the start to teach basics and then open dancing where you can dance with whomever's available.

Console Gaming Discussion / NBA 2K19

It was on sale for cheap last week on the Playstation Store and I haven't played it in a couple of seasons, so I thought now would be a good time to pick the game up. Not disappointed. I always felt this game rivaled the MLB series in regards to atmosphere, and the MyCareer mode (think Road to the Show) with the story and immersing you into that life is something RTTS should aspire to.

This time the MyCareer mode starts off with a prelude of sorts, where your created player decides to leave school a little too early and ends up starting his career in the Chinese league.

Still getting used to the controls since it's been awhile, but the game plays a great game of basketball. Worth a look if you're needing a hoops game and can find it at a discounted rate.

So yeah...cant say I saw that game playing out the way it did (to be fair, I didnt see it at all, Im at work). Sorry tider.

Really didnt think Clemson had much of a shot with those players suspended, but turns out it didnt make a difference. That was a beatdown.

Watched Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse a few days ago and was blown away by just how incredible it was. More superhero movies need to be like this.

Anyway, heres an article worth reading if youve already seen the film (there be spoilers). That moment hit me.

Got Spider-Man from my fiancee's mom while in SC. Can't wait to play, but still have RDR 2 to finish.

Saw you playing it for a bit (I think), what are your impressions so far?

As for the rest of this thread, dont everybody all jump it at once. 🧐🤨

So, how was everyone's holidays?

Not bad. Brother came into Chicago so the family was able to hangout together for Christmas, then drove back in to Michigan on the 28th and got to hangout with friends for a few days here. One nice thing about being a travel nurse now is that since my holiday pay is pretty damn high, the hospitals typically dont want to schedule me for them. 👍🏽

Other than that, it was nice to just relax.
