#863497 Section 8 Takes the 2010 St. Patrick's Day Parade

Posted by BenBurton on 12 March 2010 - 10:03 PM in Section 8

wow...thought it would be longer


That's what SHE said.



#863445 THANK YOU FRONT OFFICE

Posted by BenBurton on 12 March 2010 - 06:34 PM in Chicago Fire

Not to diminish the wonderful cooperation in set up and take down, but the tent was a gift from Busch's beans.
:cheers:


The Fire did help broker the deal though. ;)



#863358 Bench Breaking Fundraiser

Posted by BenBurton on 12 March 2010 - 04:48 PM in Section 8

Usually "too far" means it's just plain old silliness. But again, I know people take these tubes to heart so I shouldn't expect everyone to care as little as I do.

How about this SGM, I hope you don't get cancer but your rubber dick does.


I thought this was a good compromise....



#862947 LEAGUE CBA THREAD

Posted by BenBurton on 11 March 2010 - 11:30 PM in Chicago Fire

Not irrational at all. The league needs to cave and allow free agency. That alone would tide them over until salaries increase catch up to attendance. Players need a choice.


That could lead to the dissolution of the single entity structure and ultimately the demise of the league.

Rubber dick.



#862674 Negotiations with Collins John ceased?

Posted by BenBurton on 11 March 2010 - 04:23 PM in Chicago Fire

The part that was Ives like was how he reported him GONE already. There is a big difference between being at a negotiation impass and being gone. It was poor work by him. I'm disappointed.


This is why it's not fair to say it was obviously negotiating tactics.



#862562 Another T-Shirt Design Contest!

Posted by BenBurton on 11 March 2010 - 01:30 PM in Section 8

We could always use my original idea from months ago:

WE DON'T TAKE SHIT
WE TAKE OVER

S8OT




#862331 S8OT@NY 2010

Posted by BenBurton on 11 March 2010 - 02:17 AM in Section 8

I so need this trip! Matthew and I both plan on arriving Thursday Evening and leave on Monday.
Me, Matthew and alcohol...I feel sorry for whoever is housing him!


Would it be too crude to say you're housing him?



#861713 Negotiations with Collins John ceased?

Posted by BenBurton on 09 March 2010 - 11:57 PM in Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire negotiations with Collins John have broken down and 24-yr-old forward is planning to return to Europe, Insider has learned #mls

#861443 Beta testers needed

Posted by BenBurton on 09 March 2010 - 04:01 PM in Section 8

When I try to go to the beta site, it brings me to the main page first and then crashes (page aborts). This happens every time and I'm not able to click on the forums link fast enough to avoid it. Is this a problem that's happening only to me?


That's a feature of the new site, just for you.

:huh:

#861386 Beta testers needed

Posted by BenBurton on 09 March 2010 - 01:24 PM in Section 8

I actually prefer YYYY/MM/DD...

...easier for sourting pourpouses.



I prefer MM.DD.YYYY.

It's easier for sorting porpoises.



#861137 The Chicago Blackhawks 2009/2010

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 08:25 PM in Chicago Sports

in their house with the biggest crowd of the year (announced at over 23k) to boot


Yeah, the Hawks are a good draw, aren't they?



#861070 2010 Away Season Ticket Now Available

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 06:24 PM in Section 8

I'm pretty sure you have it backwards but you're in charge.


I'm pretty sure you have it backwards but I'm retired.



#861043 The Section 8 Drunk Thread

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 05:23 PM in The Harlem End

Anyone want to do day drinking at the J&M tap on Thrusday? They open at noon, I'm proposing 3:30ish.


That depends on how my job interview goes. If it goes well, I'll need to celebrate. If it goes poorly, I'll need to commiserate.



#861014 2010 Away Season Ticket Now Available

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 04:20 PM in Section 8

I know it's already been brought up, and I understand the arguments that the board have made, but I still think it's completely ridiculous that those of us who are driving to Toronto instead of going on the bus are essentially stuck paying $110 for a match ticket if we aren't buying the away season ticket package.


Stub hub. What other solutions are there?



#860923 The Section 8 Drunk Thread

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 01:38 PM in The Harlem End

I have not been drunk for one week.


Neither have I. I usually top out at three days straight and take a break.



#860908 Kickoff Luncheon Mar 24 (WED)

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 01:21 PM in Chicago Fire

Do we need Frank to give her a personal call?


He's in Mississippi!



#860905 Kickoff Luncheon Mar 24 (WED)

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 01:19 PM in Chicago Fire

I'm still trying to convince my mom to go (she's been a few times) but she's so sickened by my court case she doesn't even want a season ticket. I'll keep trying.



#860900 LEAGUE CBA THREAD

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 01:00 PM in Chicago Fire

I haven't seen this come up anywhere. I was wondering if you guys knew. Is the mediation going to be binding or are they just bringing another guy to the table?


I believe it's only binding if it's an arbiter.



#860848 The Section 8 Drunk Thread

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 11:38 AM in The Harlem End

Does it count that I was up until 4:30 drinking?



#860839 Save the Date

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 11:26 AM in Section 8

I love watching this team play. I'll be there.



#860746 The Chicago Blackhawks 2009/2010

Posted by BenBurton on 08 March 2010 - 01:13 AM in Chicago Sports

aw, well at least you had that hat trick to cheer for


It's kinda funny that the Red Wings have fallen so far that a regular season win against the Blackhawks is a major achievement.
