It's no coincidence that less then 30 minutes after Trump finished his speech that when I went outside for a smoke and heard something I haven't heard since 9/11.
The pulsating throbbing of the massive diesels of a big train pulling freight south to head thru Washington D.C. I can not remember how far away the tracks are from my house; but, trust me...they are miles away.
This train was being driven by an operator who knows how to make his presence known. The kind of engineer you want at the controls of a massive freight train heading into snow bound Rockies so he causes an avalanche before the train is in danger.
Maybe I'll look it up on a map later, maybe I will not.
The fact remains, while having a smoke I could hear it's engines many miles away.
And then, after my watch hit 1pm...the trains air horn began to sound.
I.K., curiosity got better of me. Apx., 5 miles. Considering that only thing between me and tracks is Patuxent wildlife area south of aft. Meade. No surprise the sound carried. After all...I can lie awake at night in the summer and listen to the beautiful sounds of the race track at night. Those sounds used to put me to sleep at night dreaming about things we'd see in American Graffiti.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
