This might be news to some here, but when Corso picks a team to beat your team, that has no impact on the final outcome.

A LOT of stuff in life that really bothered me when I was young doesn't bother me at all now, and a few things bother me only slightly that used to really get me going.

I thank the Internet for that.  And Al Gore.

Yeah, but they've been replaced by other things, that bother me greatly now that I'm older.
Like people who don't return their shopping carts to a cart corral in a parking lot.
And people who camp out in the left lane on the freeway. 
And young people on my lawn.

Oh man This!Back in the '90's I bought my one and only brand new car - a Corolla.I always find pretty good deals on used vehicles.Anyways after about 6 months a buddy and I are eating at his fiance's family restaurant.We come out and my driver side door is hit - about 1,100.00 at the time.Get that fixed.2 weeks later I'm grocery shopping and deliberately parked like 100 yds from the entrance.....on kind of a windy day.When i come out I see an object by my car - yup some inconsiderate c~~~.Chipped the shit out of a paint job that was still probably curing.Almost felt like asking to see the parking lot camera film.Didn't bother as I knew I prolly would have strangled the wretch if I knew or some crazy MILF would have nunchucked me

I really don't mind people of any age on my lawn or property.

I don't even mind if you're walking your dog and it craps in my grass, just don't make a habit of it.

Indeed.
My Dad always talked about taking a job at a Big Box in retirement, to offer to roam around and scold people for not returning the carts to the corral.
Indiana State Troopers have been making a concerted effort to talk about how camping out in the left lane is a traffic violation and they have been issuing (and tweeting news of) a large number of tickets on this matter.    That's a campaign I can get behind.
I don't care about young people on my lawn,  just young people walking their dogs on my lawn.

so in this storm cleanup, something i got earlier this spring sure came in handy.  



i sharpened them up really nicely from the factory edge, and put a nice Japanese edge on the lugs (one side flat, other @ 30~35* angle)... the ones i purchased have a much heavier lug side than the one pictured here... these things capture anything in front of the mower and slaps is against the mower deck and cuts it every time it tries to bounce out until it's just toothpick sized shards...

anyway, between that and this:

i made those dang smaller branches and leaves, pine cones and such dust and swept them up- drug them over to the right of way and dumped them for pick up next week without even leaving the storm deck of the tractor... My neighbors standing against their rakes watching soon got in a well formed line.  I was right popular!

also, and i feel kinda bad about this:

my neighbor broke my box-store purchased husqy rancher saw (the box stores lease the brand names... they aren't 'real' Husqy's, or John Deer's, or Cub Cadet's ect) when the storm was still going strong in attempt to jailbreak his truck from his driveway... he called all apologetic, and i told him not to worry about it (he saved my house in a big way smack dab in the middle of the storm by climbing up on the roof and putting a tarp over a chimney cap that blew off- saving me from inches of rain inside with zero doubt... 35" of rain in 36 hours... hard to conceptualize, huh?)  .. i told him not to worry that i'd pick up a quality saw while in the mountains and bring it back- he asked me to get him one too... before it was over with i came back with 4 brand new Stihl chainsaws/chain lube/mix-oil/sharpening kits and extra blades and $2k in costs- the three new owners were quick to pay me back, except my neighbor who i gave it to freely... anyway, FEMA came by Sunday and asked a series of questions.. the only 'yes' was "i bought a chainsaw in response to the storm".... so... me and three of my buddies i brought saws back to got them for free... FEMA reimbursed us.. I DO kinda feel bad about that, but then again........ they will likely be worn out in the first month.  so.... who knows..
