I i get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be ableRead More to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, www.noobjobs.com

If you think traffic is bad now, it will be 10 times (or more!) worse then. Security alone will beRead More a nightmare. Let one of the other cities have it.

I agree that having the Olympics here would be a disaster -- lots of inconvenience and costs to theRead More public and mainly only the hotel and restaurant business would benefit. Not one cent of tax money should go toward bringing the Olympics here.

I'm intrigued bit cautious. If something happens to remake the area around RFK it could be aRead More substantial legacy. The region already has a lot of the other event infrastructure and facilities so the games would be dispersed.
With its stunts, pyramids and gymnastics moves, many say that cheerleading is a sport that needs improved safety measures. File|Patch

Of course it is. Nobody who has ever seen it would think otherwise.
Joana June 12, 2014 at 04:45 pm
Yes, it's a sport! I could never understand why anyone would think otherwise. The gym my son goesRead More to, Capital, has cheer teams practicing everyday. If you saw their tumble runs you would totally agree it is a sport. And oh by the way, aren't gymnastics, skiing, diving, etc., judged?

Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

what are the two worst words a player can hear on draft day? yup, wash. redskins

They joke while VA continues to incarcerate tens of thousands of its citizens by keeping marijuanaRead More illegal. Ironic that the State Motto is "Death to Tyrants" while imposing a tyrannical reign of archaic and ineffectual statutes. The New Hampshire House became the first legislative body in the U.S. Wednesday to pass a bill legalizing recreational marijuana. Interesting that members of that body voted their conscience and are not concerned as to whether their positions make a difference in their re-elections.

Daniel Snyder says Redskins will remain Redskins. (Patch file photo.)
Steve Dingledine October 29, 2013 at 10:41 pm
The name will change despite Mr Snyder's position...within 3-5 years is my best guess.

What an arrogant display of racism----and a stupid branding decision.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much moneyRead More they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... WWW.CNN13.COM
