John Rushin.  Red trunks.  He gets one good shot in but is pretty much dominated.  It was John's first and only amateur fight.

I think that's really cool, and I hope to see one someday!

I learned that Harris Teeter, (supermarket/where I work),  started serving breakfast sandwiches in the morning over in the deli and that they're insanely delicious. I'm talkin' sausage, egg, and whatever cheese you want on a bagel, biscuit, or croissant. I went with an everything bagel + sausage + white american. So awesome.

i suppose I "re-learned" this.

if there are runners on first and third and the pitcher balks towards the plate, the runner on third gets to advance, even though no one on second base is forcing him forward.

yeah a balk is never about forcing the runner.  just that the runners move.

when I mentioned "forcing" a runner, I meant it from these terms:

runner on first and third, batter gets walked (4 balls).

Runner from first is forced to move to second because the batter will now be occupying first.

Runner from third remains on third because no one was on second, thusly no one "forces" him home.

WaWa's more like a gas station type thing, isn't it?  Harris Teeter is a full fledge mega grocery store. 

We don't have WaWa in the south.

Really? Cause there's like 10 wawa's in this area alone. And that's just VB, I'm not even counting Norfolk.

Oh, and the super wawa thing blows my mind cause I've never been to or
seen a wawa without a gas station before.

I learned that if you are a good boy and work an early half-shift you get to eat Father's Day dinner with your brother and parents and thus get prime rib steaks.

I'll vouge for kidd.   Wawa originally didn't have gas stations when I got down to this area for College (I'm speaking for the ones in the surrounding 10-15 miles, not saying NO wawas).   But over the last 5-7 years almost any new wawa that's built will have one, but there are still plenty that don't.  The one that is half a mile from my house is gas stationless.
