I'm ready to play. Goal this time is to be packed and ready at least by Thurs. I'm aiming for around 930 arrival as well. I say we gang up on the Easter Bunny and bring him down.

Tom remember Brian mentioned the eggs being big enough that you couldn't take them all? He didn't say anything about backpacks not being allowed. What do you think?
john are you staying over again and riding with me? whats up?

This cold sucks!

I love how Xpx doesn't rape you on prices during big games. They are the promoter so theres no 'name' to pay and the games are really creative and there's different layers and sub plots that keep you on your toes. That field doesn't stop kicking ***.

Agreed. Big games are the same price as walk on days. Love that.

What time are you leaving for work Tom? I'll probably try to make it there before you leave.

John- why did you have to post that? You're going to make me get on my soap box now...

Yes, at first blush, this sounds great. Here are some (and certainly not all) of the issues:

1) He showed that it worked in animals. I can't tell you how many drugs have worked in mice and failed in humans. If there was a market for curing cancer in mice, I would be rich already.
2) The sob story about how "the cure for cancer is on a shelf but you can't have it because the pharma companies won't make any money" is complete and total BS. If this research was legitimate, the NIH, NCI, American cancer society, and a hundred other non-profit organizations would fund the human trials in a second. Sadly, this research was published in 2006. If the results were real, it would have been on the market already. Take a look at this article from 2007. NRM: Quacks pervert U of A doc's discovery It turns out that there have been a few human trials performed, but none of them have shown that DCA works as well as advertised (if at all). Essentially, there isn't enough data to say for sure whether the drug works or not. I saw reports that a Phase III (large clinical trial) is now underway, but there is nothing listed at Home - ClinicalTrials.gov. There are two clinical trials that are currently recruiting patients that use DCA.
3) It should be noted that the use of DCA to treat cancer has indeed been patented.
4) Finally, the claim that the drug is harmless is false. It is well documented that the drug causes peripheral neuropathy, or damage to your nervous system that causes tingling and tremors.

So, yeah, next time someone tells you that someone has the cure for cancer but pharma companies/the government/the man/aliens won't let us have it, just know that they are full of s**t.

Kevin, don't worry about the soap box. I was actually hoping you would chime in. I honestly don't even know how I stumbled across that video I just found it relevant to recent events and felt like sharing.

XPX is FPO. Their field grade stuff is Empire IIRC and their premium paint is Allstar.
