    Most of us have other hobbies that we'll be moving on to, so I'm just curious what all of you have planned for the offseason.

    I, as I've stated before in a much different type of thread :)eat1:), write music.. so that'll be a big part of my offseason. I've also been thinking about taking painting back up, as that's another hobby that's gone neglected for many long years.

    I'll probably read some books. I got plenty of those for Christmas, so I'll probably start going through those.

    They opened a new biking trail over the highway so I'll probably check that out.

    What are all of you guys planning?

    Good topic. First and foremost i want to get back into the gym and try to reach some new goals. Mess around with some of the heavier stuff. Try and bench 255 for a few reps, things of that nature.

    Reading! I have gotten away from this and have been dying to get back to it.

    Taking a Real Estate class along with financial mortgaging class.

    Start jogging more often to get ready to join the firefighters test.

    Go on vacation somewhere with my girlfriend. Thinking about Myrtle Beach or something to that extent.

    And the rest we'll see as we go.

    A whole, hell of a lot of masturbating.

    It is tough to get a good fantasy going when you can only think of rather large, sweaty guys in tight clothing.

    When I get my truck payed off in May I'll probably rejoin the gym as well. Lord knows my belly could use a little work.

    I've been bogged down in Palahniuk's Haunted and that is a long, slow read for me. If it'd been a Library book I'd have returned it unfinished. His early stuff was so good, I'm really let down that his most recent stuff is so... bland.

    Good luck on the test when it comes up!

    I'm thinking about a Vacation with my Fiance as well. I neglect her during football season, so I think a nice vacation would be due to her. Probably the Keys or maybe the bahamas if money works out. We'll see.

    Myrtle Beach is a really cool spot. Lots of nice beach, lots of cool places to go out at night. Good choice.

    Travel while you can because kids are hard to take everywhere.

    Don't forget to fund your Roth IRA though!

    I'm disturbed by this answer.

    Luckily I don't have to turn to Rosey Palmer, my Fiance made a new years resolution to have sex more. So I'm good.

    I think I have some planning to do before I have kids. I don't even know what a Roth IRA is. haha.

    Yeah, I've heard that you should get whatever living done that you want to get done before kids, so that's advice I am taking to heart.

    Yes, and if I'm getting it as much as I have been then I can only assume it's just me, cuz man I'm tired.

    I'll do a whole lot of reading, as well as some writing about that.

    But mostly I'll just transfer my obsession onto other sports. The rugby season is just entering its most interesting phase. I'll be stepping up my golf as the sun shines a little more and then cricket arrives in May and that's one day gone per weekend.

    I am lucky I have an understanding wife who let's me follow my obsession. I went to every single home game and 3 away (GB, MIA, SD) including a stretch of 7 games in a row. Not many wives would put up with that. (although I did take her on the Miami trip, and I took my 5 year old son to his first game (Lions) ) I need to make up for lost time with her and the kids double time until next fall. That means coaching, all homework duties, watching the kids without complaint if she has something she needs to do ect. I love spending time with my kids so it is not a "chore" but I need to make up for any lost time from the fall. Probably will trim back a few games next fall (yeah it 's easy for me to say that now)

    It's really nice to see so many guys saying that spending time with their family is important. Very cool.

    There's no offseason, damnit :)

    Not a lot of different stuff for me. Married with two kids kind of limits my options.

    - Heavy draft preparation.
    - Fantasy baseball starting up, two leagues there.
    - Hoping to upgrade from my 1989 27" TV to a HDTV by 2007 NFL season.

    That's about it I think.

    That's my life fulltime :) I work from 6am to 3pm, my wife works later, so I get all the time with the kids . . . her loss ;) Homework, dinner, playtime, it's all mine. I have to decide by next week whether I want to coach my kids' soccer team or just watch from the sidelines like I usually do. Not sure what I'll do there.
