  • Annnnnd we're back...

    I apologize for the technical difficulties incurred over the past week-and-a-half.

    We're back with the latest version of vBulletin and we're gearing up for a busy football season.

    The 2018 college football season is only nine days away (August 25) and the NFL season kicks off with the Super Bowl champion Eagles hosting the Falcons in exactly three weeks (September 6).

    EOG's fall promotional schedule will be unveiled Saturday, September 1.

    Stay tuned.

            During the two week respite it was later determined and confirmed by authorities as a JK fire sale insurance claim on the joint.
            Vbulletin is cool but the need for speed is still inevitable.
            We start anew going 6-2 over the break in first fivers, now 22-14 overall for 61%.
            Good to be back.

                Gabe did not.

                    Thanks for checking in, Joe.

                    Twain is attributed with a lot of orphan quotes merely because of his humorous reputation.

                    It has been reported he never said the clever line, "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

                          Good call, Chi_Dorothy.

                          Can't bet against the Dodgers today, they're idle.

                          Three-game weekend series in Seattle starts tomorrow.

                              Have couple of games tonite to post on. Would like to know the inside story on the temporary shutdown but JK may not be at liberty to give away the inside scoop. Here are my guesses. Financial rearrangement...new investors, change in upper management or the Umbrella Corp. Am I getting warm?..

                                  When it comes to the inside scoop at EOG, I'm in the upper balcony not the front row.

                                  Glad to have a seat in the arena.

                                  I'll share something if I get it, Biff41.

                                    --Head to Costa Rica for another three-month run in October, November and December

                                          Kelly begged to play him straight up and the only dive he ever took was a muff dive.
                                          bookmaker said take the dive or lose the forum.

                                          So i call willy loman,viejo dinosaur and others and said
                                          i know john Kelly he wont lose on purpose
                                          his love for basketball and tearing up racing tickets are his only passion.

                                          We bet Kelly................score tied at 18 Kelly has the ball if he misses the shot
                                          hector hits a 3 and Kelly is off the hook.

                                          Kelly sets up for a contested 3 pointer and it tickles the twine
                                          nothing but the bottom of the net. KELLY WINS 21-18.

                                          After we collected............Kelly was escorted in a black 4 door sedan
                                          by the bookmaker body guards and was beaten to a pulp
                                          you think he had a Irish red face before.............after this he looked like
                                          a fucking strawberry.

                                          4 days later now Kelly a -140 favorite went head to head with hector again

                                          This time he had no choice losing 21-10 and shaking like a whore in church.

                                          Kelly was given the forum back and now has become a born again christian.

                                          thats the story...................i have no reason to lie

                                            God bless you.

                                            Hope all is well, Joe.

                                              Here's my favorite tip on shooting the basketball: Shoot the ball as high as possible without sacrificing an inch of accuracy.

                                              Additionally, aspiring hoopsters go out today and say they're going to "get up 500 shots."

                                              Don't count the shots, count the makes.

                                                            We need lightning-quick speed.

                                                            Time is money.

                                                            A lot of contributors come and go quickly.

                                                            Thanks for being here, Kane.

                                                              My thoughts exactly, VD.

                                                              A great way to get back in the good graces of our community would be an NFL contest bankrolled by our generous ownership group.

                                                              I expect a big announcement on Saturday, September 1.

                                                              Stay tuned.

                                                                EOG can not afford to have something like this happen again anytime soon though.

                                                                The impending football seasons combined with new legal sports betting markets in DE, NJ and MS mean many newly created sports bettors will be looking for online homes in the coming weeks.
