          <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
          <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

            Love: Always something to do, no matter how late it is. Transit is great, never closes. Good places to eat and drink.

            Hate: Some rough areas that need to be avoided later on at night, hobos who smell on the train, f'n construction on trains during the weekends.

                Mission, Texas -

                +: Biggest city in the valley (McAllen) is only a ten minute drive away, you have a lot of things a big city has (save for pro sports teams), great food, traffic is never bad, the expressway will have you in South Padre Island in 1.5 hours tops, a pretty good University is in Edinburg, which is a 15 minute drive from Mission.

                -: Small town cops have nothing better to do than pull people over for any reason. Corruption in school districts everywhere. Sometimes, it feels like things are too spread out, like driving home after a night of drinking.

                  Outer Banks, NC

                  Like - the beach, warm weather from spring to fall, laid-back place, not much crime
                  Dislike - lack of things to do, too many ******* golf courses and office buildings/banks, winter when it is cold and there is nothing to do, no professional sports teams even though one most likely couldn't be supported

                        god. i love 395. i mean you could swim there too. but who swims in the potomac. really.

                        hi. i live in chicago. more specific wrigleyville.

                        my likes are: i don't get my ass handed to me by property taxes, i like the fantastic food we have nearby, i live next door to taco bell, there are plenty of fantastic music clubs in the area, i don't live next door to a million yuppies like i would if i lived in old town or the gold coast or in the west loop, i have a back yard, i love winter, i can go fishing on the lake most of the year, public transportation isn't that bad.

                        my dislikes are: i get my ass handed to me by sales tax, i dislike that all the pizza places around me suck balls, i live next door to taco bell that closes at 5am and attracts every drunk midget for 300 miles, the only bands that play in chicago are bobby bare jr, cascadia, and nickleback, i live next door to a million bro dudes (chads) and trixies (google that one if you need a hand), it's balls hot in the summer and not in the good way, the fish in the lake have sucked since i've lived here, it's so flat bike riding becomes boring (and dangerous from ******* who dno't watch where they're driving).

                        that's all! i miss home!

                              Like: 20 mins from Baltimore and DC. 2 hours to the mountains and beach either way. Now with a car there's always something I can find to do. Merriweather Post Pavilion pulls some decent concerts. Pretty wealthy town, Forbes ranked 7th best to live well in: http://www.forbes.com/2009/05/04/tow...top-towns.html

                              Dislike: Fairly 'manufactured' town, planned community. Plenty of rich snobby people.

                                Love: live across the road from the beach, fairly big city with plenty to do, but because the actual cbd is pretty small it doesnt feel big which i like alot, nightlife is pretty good, easily available illicit substances, people are really laid back most of the time, traffic isn't really that much of an issue, very un-sydney-ish, some really nice suburbs

                                Hate: developing a bit of a reputation for being a drug hole, cbd looks like **** the surf has literally been **** for nearly 6 months now, wish we had a better live music scene
