Anyone have any Colorado info for me?

Hey everyone. So I may possibly be moving to Colorado sometime soon to the Boulder area where my boyfriend has a $45,000 a year job waiting for him. I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about the area. I’ve done a little research and am kind skeptical if this salary would be enough to live there. It would be just the two of us. Does anyone have any insight with finances around that area? Also, I’d be leaving my college here. I’m going to school for graphic design and was wondering if there were any nearby colleges where I could finish getting my associates degree in Liberal Arts or a college where I could get my bachelors in Graphic Arts. Also, what is there to do out there in Colorado? I know there’s skiing and such, but we’re not much for that. I’m more hippy-ish and love everything art and coffee shops and museums and parks and such. He likes sports and parks and such. If anyone could let us know if it’s a fun place or not. I get bored easily so I need to be entertained. Heh. Also, how’s the job market around there? Here in Michigan it is absolutely HORRIBLE, seeing as we’re number 2 in unemployment in the country, right after Louisiana (because of hurrican Katrina). Hmm, oh! And does anyone know around how much houses run around the Boulder, Colorado area? As you can see, I’ve got a lot of questions and ANY info would help. Thanks so much. Peace and love.

I know people who was born there and still live there today and they keep on braggin how cool it is over there. Lucky

Are Professional Sports Fixed?

The first time that realized that the NFL was shady was the Monday Night Miracle when a confident Arnold Schwarzenegger at half-time stated that the New York Jets would come from behind and defeat the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins were dominating the Jets 23-7 at that time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monday_Night_Miracle_(American_football)

Since then America has been dealt with some severe tragedies, the 911 terror attacks and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. In both events our government received a black eye in a lot of the public view. In 2001 during the time of America in turmoil the New England Patriots went from being a 5-11 (2000 Standings.) to becoming America’s team echoing the patriotism of a nation and winning Super Bowl XXXVI (2002) , Super Bowl XXXVIII (2004) and Super Bowl XXXIX (2005).

I found it odd that 3 of the 4 states directly associated with 911 have all won Super Bowls since then. The flights originated at Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts with aircrafts crashing in Washington, D.C., New York City and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

N.Y. Giants – Super Bowl XLII (2008)
Pittsburgh Steelers – Super Bowl XL (2006) and Super Bowl XLIII (2009).

Now lets turn our attention to the New Orleans Saints. In August 2005 New Orleans was struck by Hurricane Katrina and that year the Saints finished 3-13 the following year they go 10-6 and advancing to their franchise’s first conference championship. Today New Orleans is still trying to rebuild and the Saints are the pride of their city, will they they be dubbed Super Bowl XLIV champions.
Games can be fixed by play calls and officiating, it’s about X’s and O’s. Every player on the field has a assignment, when we think that player missed his responsibility or blew his coverage can we really assess that.

Other Sports in which these states have prevailed:

Boston Celtics NBA 2008
Boston Red Sox MLB 2004, 2007

New York
Yankees MLB 2009

Pittsburgh Penguins NHL 2009
Philadelphia Phillies MLB 2008

Saints NFL ?

The Saints win over the Vikings was the shadiest thing I’ve seen in a while. The drive before regulation by the Vikings, they’re going through the Saints like nothing and then run two running plays where the backs run into the line and fall down, then the interception by Favre. Then in overtime, the respotting of the ball etc. every break in the book, please! Here’s something even more apparent. The Celtics during the Larry Bird era never committed more fouls in a playoff series than their opponents, whether they won or lost the series! The odds of that happening are virtually mathematically impossible. Yes sports are fixed.

What are some good themes for homecoming?

i was thinking do like famous streets (bourbon street in new orleans, broadway, hollywood blvd, and another one that i haven’t yet thought of.)

is my idea a good one and do you think people would like it? what are some other good ideas- i know they’ve done western, board games, decades, disney movies, mardi gras (we live in louisiana), and the list goes on. i was thinking sports also but idk if they have done it yet.

thanks for advice!

Streets are a really good… and can be a fun challenge to decorate. You could do eras, like the 1950’s sock hop… and require a costume for everyone ! Poodle skirts and guys with grease in their hair… and so on ! Good luck with the dance !

Will Hurricane Gustav affect New Orleans sports teams at all?


Though Hurricane Gustav doesn’t appear to have caused as much damage as Hurricane Katrina, won’t this still affect sports teams. Regardless of if it directly hit the city of New Orleans it still did a lot of damage in areas outside the city. The Saints and Hornets fan base is all of Louisiana and probably some of Mississippi. Since these people probably won’t plan on shelling out money for tickets and team gear until they get their lives back in order and the city of New Orleans still struggling to get back to the way it was before Hurricane Katrina one must wonder whether this could be a disaster for the Saints and Hornets. Your thoughts?

Well the Superdome and Arena sustained no damage during Hurricane Gustav. The city suffered very little flooding this time. The Saints game scheduled for this weekend at the Superdome is still on, so I don’t think it will have an effect at all on Sports teams.
