I loved the Miata when it first came out and wanted it badly, but it was impractical for my situation. I also was chagrined when it was eventually labeled as a 'gay' car. Its likely I will never own one now.



The Miata was the first car that I ever bought that had a manual transmission. The dealer delivered the car to my office and we finalized the paperwork. After work I go outside to get in my new car and to start anew adventure. I had never driven a stick shift car before and now I own one and have to get home. Time to learn to drive a stick. Amazingly I only stalled it once on my way home.

hehe.... so what you're saying is you're a natural when it comes to grabbing the knob and shifting the stick?

Coming down to the wire, could be a photo finish!

I am well positioned to defend my golden ratio prize.

I was doing that many years before I started driving.

I know a few guys that have never learned to drive a stick shift(car) of course those are the same guys that would normally drive Miatas.

And then there are guys that never even Learned to Drive.

Bears -6? Can the Bears offense even score six points?

Probably not, but maybe their defense can.

The expected final is Bears 23. Giants 17. Doesn't this feel like the easiest under of the year? 40.5? Parlay Giants/ under in case 0-0?

It does feel that way, but my O/Uís are abysmal. I bet if I looked through the history of this game, all-time, I pick them at 40%, or worse.
