    Holy smokes! He's clearly improved his explosiveness. I might have to change my starting lineup projections. (He has to get back here first, though.)

    If we're worried about social distancing among the fans, I don't see any reason why we can't still have a women's college hoops season.

    Kearney is Husker fan territory. During his formative years. And we got a coach known for getting PFs to the pros.
     
    We might have an actual shot here.

    I'm not sure people realize how much money they are losing. Whenever I ask someone how they did in Vegas they always say how much they won.  All those new casinos are not going up because people are beating the house.

    rule #1 never play slots, they are boring and I never win. Black jack and craps is all I play. I’m sure I lose more than I win but I remember the big wins a lot more than the loses. Maybe that’s why I love husker hoops so much.

    You must have more luck than me. The couple times I went to a casino, I limited myself to a certain amount of losses, played slots and hit my loss limit within about 20 minutes. Hung out in the bar and watched TV from there until my group was ready to go. Decided that was no fun and wasn't ever going back to a casino. To this day, I'm just astonished at all the cars/semis pulled into casino parking lots at like 11 a.m. whenever I pass places on the highway that have them.

    Go to the casino turn $300 into a grand and buy them all and keep the original $300

    I personally wouldn't buy the $300 bottle of hooch, but that's simply because you can get one that's 95% as good for about $70 and one that's 90% as good for about $35.  So, for consumer items like that I would probably not get it (unless it was for some very special occasion and I wanted to have the experience of it).
     
    Given the choices listed and gun to my head having to choose one, I'll take the scotch all day every day and twice on Sunday over the others.
     
    But for a durable good like your knife, and if it's something you know you enjoy and will use a lot, then absolutely I say buy that.  Get yourself a nice bottle of Templeton Rye to go with it and that's a good day in my mind.

    I don't understand why you can't buy all 3 off your options plus the knife, miter saw, fishing tackle and the upgrade in basketball seats.  Just live the American dream and purchase all of them on your credit card, make the bare minimum monthly payment, and then leave all of these great toys to your family when you pass along with the remaining debt.  Seems like a win-win for everyone!!  Well, maybe its more of a win for you, but when you're dead, at least you've lived a hell of a life.  😀

    So, kinda the back-story on this: I'd seen bottles of 18-year-old MacAllen behind locked glass at liquor store displays in the past. A year ago, that stuff was probably bringing $250/bottle. Now, it's more like $300. And I always thought that was a hell of a lot of money to spend on hooch. Really good hooch, to be sure, but hooch nevertheless.
     
    As I was sitting on my patio on 4th of July, watching neighbors all around me light off half my net worth in fireworks, I recalled a time a few years back when I decided to splurge on fireworks and bought a couple of these and a few of those and, what the hell, that $50 thing would make a grand finale, etc., and my eventual tab rung up to probably around three hundred bucks. But, somehow, lighting it all off was strangely dissatisfying. Three hundred bucks didn't generate as long of a show as you might expect. Each $20-$30 item was maybe not quite as spectacular as I'd imagined it might be. And I decided I wasn't going to do that again.
     
    So, as I sat on my patio watching my neighbors almost literally burning through money, I started thinking about other similar-cost purchases and what kind of utility you might get out of them.  And I ended up deciding that I could make the "fireworks" from a $300 bottle of top-shelf single malt scotch last a bit longer and be a bit more satisfying than a bunch of gunpowder that would go up in smoke in one evening.
     
    I didn't buy the scotch, though, either. I'm actually thinking about buying a carbon steel Japanese chef knife for roughly the same price. Because that bitch should last for-frickin-ever and help me produce some fine eating for a lot of friends and family to enjoy over the course of a lifetime -- and then be worthy of inheriting once I pass from this life.
     
    If you'd have been willing to consider blowing up $300 worth of fireworks on 4th of July, are there any other roughly $300 things you'd now think differently about buying, having read this thread? That compound miter saw you've had your eye on, perhaps? Some new fishing tackle? Upgrading your basketball seats?
     
    It's the off-season, guys. Talk to me.
