    So I get off the train yesterday and go up the stairs and at the top there’s a pile of cash, about 400 bucks. I scoop it up and off I go.

    So my question is, do I have any obligation here other than to just be happy and spend the money (preferably, going by this board, on marijuana gummies and firearms)?

    Crazy as it sounds, you are of an age where you already know the answer.
    It's just not as fun as THC gummies and handguns.

    Gotcha. I'd 8.5% towards an act of good karma in lieu of taxes.

    Apparently, he was back at practice today for Miami after the internet **** on him for that picture. Because he was 100% quitting. But that’s fine. Grantham is putting a bounty on the head of whoever they have there at QB on the 24th.

    LOL imagine being a hunted, disliked bitch boy in football.

    I played hockey & we used to box in the locker room if someone had an issue but there's no 280-300+ guys in that sport.

    The Dow took a fat L today. The yield on 30-year Treasury bonds dipped to 2.018%.

    30-year bonds are typically the most sensitive to fluctuations and are a pretty good indicator of recession. We’re long overdue for one, anyway. Let’s just get it over with.

    The 10 year and 3 month curve inverted in March/April and remain there (at least until the rate cut, not sure if it stayed that way post cut) currently.

    Anyway, in the last 70 years, any time those two have inverted, and remained inverted more than 10 weeks, we have been in a recession within 18 months.

    I'm far from an economist, but the whole "best economy evah" proclamations are seemingly far from reality.

    Deregulation efforts were a steroid in the arm of the expansion, but those efforts have never proven to be effective in the long-term as far as I’ve read. I’m not an economist either but I had to study economics in school in certain classes. That said, while I’m far from an expert on the field, I do know that you’re correct about that assessment. At least this time, the housing market *hopefully* won’t crash.

    My brother in law (head of retail at a bank) and I have been talking about this for some time. He told me a year ago to start getting my financial house in order as best I could.

    Untimely for me I bought a house in NC in '17 that was about three times the size of the house we left in MA so between down payment, furnishings, the move down etc etc etc we stretched a bit to make it work, although currently still manageable.

    Helps that my direct neighbor just sold his place for $160/sq ft and I bought our place for $137/sq ft so we have some wiggle room regardless should things **** the bed again.

    So I've finally found a thread that Ian didn't inexplicably close, and here is the chronological list of

    Best decisions this organization has ever made

    On November 16, 1959, Boston business executive Billy Sullivan was awarded the eighth and final franchise of the developing American Football League (AFL). The following winter, locals were allowed to submit ideas for the Boston football team's official name. The most popular choice – and the one that Sullivan selected – was the "Boston Patriots," with "Patriots" referring to those colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rebelled against British control during the American Revolution and in July 1776 declared the United States of America an independent nation. Immediately thereafter, artist Phil Bissell of The Boston Globe developed the "Pat Patriot" logo, which appeared in team programs and was put on their helmets in 1961.

    No Billy Sullivan, no team.

    Ground was broken in September 1970 for Schaefer Stadium. It cost $7.1 million, only $200,000 over budget. Even allowing for this modest cost overrun, it was still a bargain price for a major sports stadium even by 1970s standards. This was because the Patriots received no funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or the town of Foxborough; indeed, it was one of the few major league stadiums of that era that was entirely privately funded.

    On January 26, 1973, Chuck Fairbanks was named head coach of the New England Patriots. A year later, Fairbanks and defensive coordinator Hank Bullough were installing a new system (today known as the Fairbanks-Bullough 3–4, or the 3–4 two-gap system). Listing all of the innovative and effective strategies and personnel moves [including hiring a kid named Ernie Adams straight out of college], amazingly dominant drafts, and record-setting accomplishments by and under Chuck would fill up a page. He belongs in the PFHOF and the team HOF.

    January 15, 1982: DALLAS -- Ron Meyer, who left a college team with national championship aspirations to become head coach of the New England Patriots, said Friday he would have all the control he needed with his new club.

    'I have known the members of the New England front office for a long time,' said Meyer. 'I feel I am in great shape with the administration there. I will have the same control there as Tom Landry has with the Dallas Cowboys.'

    What's this doing on the list? Well, besides the fact that if Landry had called upon the groundskeeper to clear snow off the Texas Stadium turf on Thanksgiving to allow Rafael Septién to kick the winning field goal, he'd have been hailed as a genius and credited as a brilliant innovator. Even Shula probably would have said, "I wish I'd thought of that!"

    Anyway, this hiring was necessary to bring to Foxborough the man who has contributed the longest to winning football here, a man who belongs in the Pro Football and Patriots' Halls of Fame: Dante Scarnecchia.

    No Ron Meyer, no Scar.

    Patriots brass is super excited to land Parcells

    No Bill Parcells, no Bill Belichick.

    Robert Kraft:

    From $227 Million to $3.8 Billion: The Unlikely Story of How Robert Kraft Bought the New England Patriots

    As you can see, buying the team was a lengthy, multitransactional, expensive, risky endeavor.

    Then, when the opportunity arose to build a stadium in Foxborough, he was able to jump and take advantage of it.

    No Roger Goodell, no Gillette Stadium.

    No Bill Belichick, no Tom.
