The football on the trophy looks a little deflated.

The football on the trophy looks a little deflated.
It's the temperature and humidity. Science.

Sorry I missed what you said.  The Hall of Fame was calling so loud I could make your stuff out.  ;D

11 out of 12 balls were under by 2 psi Mortensen? Idiot! How about 1 ball (the one that was taken back to the Indy sideline and stored away by their equipment manager) and the other 10 in question were a couple ticks under.

The media has tried to make something out of nothing and the NFL is going to look like a bunch of fools when they have to bow down and kiss Kraft's rings ( all 4 of them!).

Suck it Goodell, Aikman, Montana, Collinsworth, Carter...and the list goes on.

Scenes from Boston today.  Unfortunately I had to work so I couldn't attend but I did see the one in 2002.

Yes I totally agree that volunteers would be first to go. I put in my application as soon as I got the e-mail on the 2nd of February. I like doing competitions mostly because of the feedback I get.
I believe 1st round moved to a checklist scoresheet format last year, so you feedback may be limited.  This, by all means, should not keep you from entering however.

Good luck!

I requested 4 this year...all are previous competition winners (some NHC, some other big comps).  I have a couple others, but even it would be a waste of money and judges time if I submitted.

1 week ago I could see most of my lawn.  7 days later, 2.5 feet of snow everywhere!!  At least I can get use out of the new snowshoes we bought this year.

It's hard to believe that pitchers and catchers report in about 2 weeks.  Of course in previous years, we weren't focused on late January-February football like we were this year.

Just so you know, all the entries I want to submit were brewed the hard way!

That last play was so close to working but Butler made a great play that he'll probably never make again.  If you look at some of the overhead shots, it did look like an easy TD.

I understand the Brady MVP.  He went 37 for 50, had 4 TD's, and 328 yards passing, broke Montana's record for Superbowl TD's.  Unfortunately for Edelman, the receivers make the QB's look good.

What a was a couple hours before I could calm down enough to go to sleep.  Bring on the Duck Boats!!!! Time for a parade!!

Yes, fixed now and I was able to log back in and correct my registration.

Yeah, that's weird.  It changed my primary to another location and didn't even include that primary location as a secondary.

I would like the opportunity to correct this if possible.

I tried to answer the "How much have you spent on equipment" question with "more than the GNP of a third world country", but the survey insisted on a number. I really don't know the answer to this - and really don't want to know, so this data point may be skewed.

Here's one that I ran last year, and I'm mentoring our organizer in this year: Ask anyone on here that's entered it. We get our stuff out quick. I think last year we had them mailed (all 300+ packets) by the Wednesday after the comp. The year before that was similar.

I can confirm this comp has their act together.  Also the mashout and Midwinter comps have always gotten my results back to me quickly.  These, NHC, and the Northern New England HBC put on by Brew Free or Die are ones I enter every year because they are run so well (actually missed mashout this year...too busy with holiday stuff, but my KCBM and Midwinter entries are on the way).

I'm glad the deadline is still 10 days away.  I sent my entries earlier this week but they are now delayed due to the blizzard.  I'm confident they will get there in time.
