I was at a burger joint with someone who had Celiac disease and the menu proclaimed "Gluten free buns available on request." So, she asked for a burger with gluten free buns, and the waiter told her they were actually out.

"Buying booze across the border in Virginia is like a dream for me." Interesting statement of the day. I'll agree both beer and wine are plentiful, since they they are promoted by the state as part of the agritourism industry. But liquor is controlled by the ABC, and you can only buy bottles of it at ABC owned stores.… » 12/17/14 3:46pm Wednesday 3:46pm

I think you're missing the real story here: A 10 year old that can lip read words he's never heard before!

So, they have absolutely no financial incentive to ever say anything different. » 10/27/14 2:44pm 10/27/14 2:44pm

On the kickoff ensuing from a Colt's field goal, they caught just about everyone off guard and went for the onside kick, in the first quarter, winning 3-0. It's not as impressive as recovering an onside kick late in the 4th when you're down by 6 and EVERYONE knows it's coming. But, that is still an awesome kicker… » 10/10/14 8:20am 10/10/14 8:20am
