It is definitely a decent business plan.
So what makes it a scam again?

Where have you been? Anything that turns a profit is obviously a scam.

Don't look too hard at most non-profits either.

CEOs with multi-million dollar salaries and company provided memberships to country clubs.

I do love (is love the right word?) that every time a pro takes a picture with another pro in a different town people think that they're jumping ship.

It's like we've forgotten that these guys and girls grew up in the game battling one another, see each other nearly every weekend, and have personal relationships.

I know we tend to see people as brands and objectify them for our entertainment...but let's get a grip on the insane speculation. Just because Simon, Ricky, and KJUSA play golf together - or Drew and Will go get a milkshake - doesn't mean there's subterfuge going on.

JT,
This is the wrong thread for that type of... what's the word I'm looking for... ah, yes, LOGIC... thanks though

On a more relevant note, I smoked a rack of baby backs last night using the 3,2,1 method.

Rub the rack and smoke for 3 hours
Foil the rack w/ apple cider for 2 hours
Put the rack back on the grill with sauce for 1 hour

pork falls right off the bone...

I used Brown Sugar Bourbon for the rub & Smokey Mountain Sauce from Blues Hog.
DELICIOUS!

STAHP IT, you know how hard it is to even find 950-rated BBQ out here in SF that doesn't cost $30/plate (which is the antithesis of a BBQ)??

Mouth watering...need lunch...thank god we have Taqueria's with amazing Lengua Burritos...

Speaking of scams, anybody know of a pyramid-type dg scam going so I can be contractually forced to overbuy discs and then get stuck with the goods? That sounds pretty awesome with the plausible deniability, victimhood and such.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, what is this about a milkshake? You don't just get a milkshake with someone without ulterior motives. Based on this news, I would guess Drew was just an ambassador for Innova in their merger with Prodigy. They then make Ricky their hybrid sponsor, and he goes back to throwing his Prodigy stamped Innova stuff plus Innova stamped whatever that Ricky misses from Prodigy. And in two years, the new company renames itself The Deuce before setting up a new tour that only allows overmolds with compass points.

I wish tongue could be barbecued but I am afraid it is too lean a meat to turn out right. I am afraid it would dry out, but then I could be wrong. Have to get my dad to smoke some up.

Not you too. You broke your logic with that...whatever that ugly acronym is.
