Oh, my God, you're right !!!!
maybe we'll change it to the 8th ?


Lemme PM some folks.

As for that opener..... Hopefully Urlacher plays the opener. Him and Briggs are still the best LB Duo in the NFC. So long as that defense is healthy, we're gonna be better than expected. Our Offense is finally gonna beast this year. Cutler/Marshall/Forte/Jeffrey/Bush are gonna go HAM on the NFC central as long as Tice can make that line into a servicable one.

You got me all hyped up now, LOL.

This is just a reminder about the coding meet and I'm planning to stay from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday (9/8/12). So you don't have to be there at 10 AM exactly.

Please contact DULLAH to get the address details.
