    Thanks! It feels like the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. If you don't pass, you don't get a diploma until you retake the exam in November. If you don't have a diploma, you don't get a state license and you can't work in the field (speech therapy). So basically, failing=McDonald's fry cook for 6 months. Assuming you pass the retake. If you don't, that's it. Program terminated, no degree.

    But, that won't be me.

    We just took the kids on a whirl wind tour of all 5 National Parks in Utah in 5 days. Man what a great trip.

    Got my house under contract in just over a month after putting it on the market. Let's hope it all works out.

    I am so glad that Wei-Yin Chen is pitching and not Jo Jo Reyes.

    Buyer backed out after inspection without even so much as a demand. I'm going to find this guy and kick him in the face.

    I love when I'm studying for an exam, and I can remember some obscure name or term because of a sports reference. For example, I'm pretty sure in his time with the Orioles, Adam Eaton was suffering from muscle weakness due to Lambert-Eaton Syndrome.

    I was bored, so I played the Parks and Rec "Bert Macklin's FBI Name Generator" and got the result "Brooks Fielding".

    Perfect for an O's fan!

    I am putting this here for two reasons.

    I didn't want to make a whole thread about it.

    I am still laughing 3 minutes after hearing it.

    Have the latest Kirabel/KLaw podcast up and KLaw is talking about how they used to handle HS pitchers:

    It used to be they would take a slew of High School pitchers in the first round, run em out to A ball, throw em 185 innings a year and then be like "Why do they all get hurt?"
    Yea KLaw, thank goodness we don't have folks advocating overly fast promotion of high school kids with no strict inning limits.

    My name was Max Francis, which is kind of funny because Francis is a family name.

    My (future) step daughter's 10U softball team won again last night to improve to 7-0 for the season!
