    What are our plans for the Holidays? I leave for Michigan tomorrow morning and won't be back until 12/29. Minimal to no access to PS3.

    Will we be taking a Christmas break or do I need to go to auto pilot?

    Initially, I had thought about taking a break from X-Mas Eve. to 12/27, but it looks like a couple of guys will be away longer. We've built up a lot of momentum in a short amount of time, and the activity on the boards has increased considerably. I'm concerned that a week long + break will kill that momentum. I'll look at team schedules when I get back and see if you and Bdub could survive a sim somewhere along the way. Does anyone else have thoughts on this?

    Lol... My school is the epitome of SIM nation with all of the sims I've received.

    County just finished up. I'm going to try and sneak out of work soon and advance us.

    It'd be cool if we could get Week 3 in before Big Smooth leaves so that we can get to Week 4 as soon as possible and hopefully that LSU-South Carolina game can get played as well before we have to shut it down.
    Selfishly, I'd also like to get to Week 4 so I have another game and the 3 of us on a bye aren't on a bye for the whole break.

    With that upcoming schedule for me, that would suck balls to get tossed some sim losses because I'm going to visit family for the holidays.

    Why don't we break from tomorrow until the 27th? That will leave Smooth until the 30 to get his next week in. Then throw together a couple of holiday tournaments for SimNation for an extra 4 star recruit? I know I'll want to go all EGO and play 50 games everyday that I'm off, but that ain't likely to happen. ;) I'll be visiting family throughout my off time.

    Smooth and I are going to play tonight, if that helps. Some time around 10-11 EST, but it'll be tonight.

    As for the rest, I'm with the guys. Whatever they want, I'll roll with. I'll be around, with family visiting.

    Sorry, but I can make it early. I'm off work. Today my inlaws come in from Florida, and I have to go visit after work. I'll text you as soon as I get it in, in the morning. Should be 9-10 at the latest depending on when the wife leaves for work.

    That sounds a little better. Please don't forget that I have your wife's number. (Remember you accidentally posted it earlier in the year?) I'm tempted to text her something like:

    "Dear Mrs. Goose, please cut your hubby some slack. He's a good father and works hard. Can he please fulfill his NCAA obligation prior to having to complete any chores, shopping assistance, or in-law obligations? I'm completely fine with you punishing your husband for being a man, but please don't punish the rest of us.

    Sincerely,

    Ego"
