    Why did you spend so much time thinking about what your dog's name would be rather than just getting one?

    I've always wanted a little dog (specifically a Yorkie) named Maximilian. But then a man came into my old job with the best name for a little dog: Snickerfritz <--- can get so many nicknames out of it! Maybe I'll just get two dogs...I can use both names and they'd never get lonely :)

    growing up, mom was allergic to dogs and cats

    then i went to college, couldn't have one in a dorm

    then i graduated, didn't know what finances and time would be like, let alone i cant have dogs where i live

    now i'm about to start med school, where i'm not sure how much time i'll have...especially once clinical clerkships begin.

    ahhh. it's great to be #1. even if it means waiting...

    how they made it: "As you can see, we determined that the most important category was a team's current players and the future potential of those players -- that category accounted for 40 percent of each team's overall Future Power Rating.

    At the same time, we looked at many other factors, such as management, ownership, coaching, a team's spending habits, its cap situation, the reputation of the city and the franchise, and what kind of draft picks we expected the team to have in the future.

    To reach our ratings in each category, we talked to teams to get a handle on their future strategies, we looked at their contractual commitments and we carefully broke down each roster to figure out which players would improve, which would decline and which would likely depart."

    I was wondering what was in that article. But no way am I paying to read their opinion on that :rolleyes:

    Honestly, I'm still skeptical that Brandon Roy is "best player on a championship team" good. But I guess we'll see.

    Why are the heat ahead of the bulls? The Bulls really have something going there with Rose and a bunch of young big men actually developing their game.

    ...seriously. Bulls should be up there. They have some key playoff experience for some of those guys now because of last year. I know it was one series, but that was one hell of a series for those guys to have under their belts.

    That's what I thought, but I figured that wasn't the fun answer she was looking for.

    Not sure if she was looking for "pennies" either, though.

    after watching enough Bulls games, you begin to realize that Gordon wouldn't have to make those game winning shots if he didn't suck on defense and turnovers the rest of the game.

    I'd be afraid they'd take it out later on down the line when they realize their mistake and I'd be in a tight bind with money at the time.

    i definitely liked some aspects of it-p/f, low class time, tons of international opportunities. the location was meh for me though, still an hour from manhattan and kind of in the middle of nothing and it would be expensive and annoying to have a car but it seems like you need one even to get to a good grocery store, etc.

    yes. i feel like i should call them, but at the same time its bank of america and i doubt theyll really miss it.

    and luun, if they take it out later i think i'd be ok-im living at home and just saving up money this year so its not like i wouldnt be able to pay bills or something.
