Re: Cardinals kick field goal instead of going for TD, WTF!!!!

They also made many stupid mistakes on the last series of the game:

1) the kick returner attempted to run back from the 2, instead of letting it go to the end zone.

Re: Low Stakes Limit Game - Guy Hollywooding every hand

Why not take him aside quietly, ask him why he is taking so long, and explain low limit protocol. I would nicely tell him you want him to do well, but hes ruining the game for others.

Re: What should I offer for an oceanfront apt. in Miami Beachthese da

Do some rental analysis and don't pay a cap cost less than 7.5%. That area is glutted, more are coming and you want to be able to handle it if rents decline. I would probably price my offer at 8.5%.
