Tank on EmptyTank on Empty
 

Scary!

June 27, 2008 about Dodge Caravan

After working third shift,I got in my van and realized the gas light was on. I thought that I could at least make it to the gas station located approximately five miles from work that I knew would be open at this hour of the morning.My gas gage was in the red slash and I didn't feel like stopping, so I passed the station and went on, thinking I would stop at the next one closer to home. It was closed!I was beginning to sweat thinking I would surely run out. I made it all the way home for a total trip of 15 miles to my home on empty! Not that I am going to even make a habit of doing this to myself, but it was a comfort to now know that I can push the envelope if I need to!

Now to bringing up the trade again. How could DA ever know, or nanoye including the doctors, that Shaqs injury wasnt healing until realizing so by him coming back, playing and faltering? You berate DA like hes supposed to be some sort of seer and can see into the future. He makes decisions based on what he sees and is told. The assumption was that Shaq would come back and based on that, and his level of superior play with the team when he started, DA made a move that he had to because once again (your almighty God-like, do no wrong, Ubuntu loving center Perk the magnificent refused an offer and we needed bench help after MD was significantly injured and never was able to return all season, so we had no back up to PP. Question did Perk ever dominate Shaq? I think not. Will you please get over the trade and stop talking about it in every post you write? Your one track mind is seriously obscuring some quality posts (like your 2nd post respecting Shaq this season) you make but then you step in it again, and again, and again. Maybe you can get some post-trade counseling or go to hoops rehab and get weaned off of all the trade comments? The trade was in February and I believe well be hearing about it until next February, and beyond. So in the meantime, how about you get us some stats and facts to back up your claims instead of just opinions, which we are all certainly entitled to. Go Cs.the end.
