  1. I’m sorry to backtrack, because I forgot about the count, but I couldn’t let this post go by without mentioning it. My grandfather was one of the engineers who helped design this plane, and he was the head of the cowl department at Republic Aviation on Long Island, while these planes were in production. He was a very determined man. He grew up poor, and did not have money to go to school, but instead, went to the library, and studied every book he could get his hands on to learn, and taught himself how to be an engineer. He was incredibly proud of this plane, and how durable it was. He used to tell me about how shot up the plane would be, but still got the boys home. A few years ago, I stood in the Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, VA, where the P-47 stands next to the Enola Gay, and had tears in my eyes, as I looked at my grandfather’s legacy. He would have been so proud! I am not a big aviation buff, but this plane holds a special place in my heart. Thanks for posting it, Swayin!

  5. USS Savannah, CL-42. Memorial plaque to the ship in Savannah, GA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Savannah_(CL-42) The first Navy ship in WW2 to be hit by one of the first guided missiles was pretty smart at gunnery herself. Sa-lute.

  6. I’m sorry, but I can’t believe anything he ever says. He uses the “what about the players” line, which is as much of a crock as when you hear people say @what about the children”, it’s always a veiled excuse for what someone wants. Basically, he is complaining about having to play more than one tough opponent in a row, which is what happens in the SEC week in and week out. Dabo’s concern in playoff expansion is that there is a greater chance Clemson will be exposed. They play weak opponents all season, so they typically don’t have injury issues like teams who play a real schedule. The more good teams they play means more potential for injury and playing strictly off emotion, hype and snake oil won’t last when you keep getting punched in the mouth for several weeks in a row.

  7. I'll be happy if we don't try and kick 57 yard field goals while being down by 3 TDs in the 3rd quarter.
