If the shoe fits. But no, to the guy who thinks Finnegan doesn't deserve the Pro Bowl selection.

Hopefully, we can sign Asomugha so Peyton Manning could see a good corner four times a year, apart from seeing either Champ Bailey or his beloved Cromartie next season

Quote:
During the 2008 season, Finnegan was awestruck for the only time in his professional career when then New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre lined up at the wide receiver position across from him.

Anticipating the formation, coaches told Finnegan before the game to "punch (Favre) in the mouth" if the legendary quarterback lined up across from him.

And Finnegan did, delivering a hit on Favre that he said turned the quarterback red. Later in the game, Favre motioned to Finnegan to come talk to him.

"I was like, man, this is Brett Favre telling me to come over there," said Finnegan, prior to accepting his award later Friday at the Emerald Coast Convention Center. "I went over there and he said, 'I just wanted to tell you, you don't hit very hard.' "

I've never understood why people are scared to fly, but yet they'll ride around in cars all day long with drunk drivers on the road and all kinds of other irresponsible drivers where dangerous accidents can happen so much easier at any second.

I ain't skeered to admit that I'm afraid to fly, even though I do occasionally fly. Although, in my case, it has more to do with being afraid of heights. Ever since a very bad experience at a cable ski park I worked for back in High School I've been terrified of heights for some reason.

I'll tell the story if anyone cares.

I"ll take a plane, but I'll also take a Xanax with a Heineken chaser.

If we're flying through a storm, then I'll take some more.

Default Re: Cortland Finnegan afraid to fly?

Okay, here go's it.

A lot of y'all might not remember, but there used to be a cable ski park in League City. I worked there weekends and Summers of my Jr and Sr years in HS. I was the lead maintenance dude and did most of the repairs, anywhere from the go-carts to the cable system. The worst thing that could happen for my position would be a cable derail. They were freakin nightmares!

Anywho, I was off on this particular night until this crap went down. I was at a party and well on my way to being liquored up when the last person I wanted to see showed up. It was the owner of the ski park, and yes, he was looking for me. He said he was entertaining friends of his and allowing them to ski while he operated the rope retrieve and launching system(he wasn't the brightest candle on the cake). Well, one of his dumbass friends let a rope pop out of his hands while attempting a launch and it flung up and over the top cable. The owner, being as dumb as he is, never hit the E-stop to stop the system before the rope got to the 1st tower/pulley. The rope ended up getting caught on tower one while causing....can you guess? Yep, a massive derail!

Considering it's Friday and the next day is usually a big business day, the derail had to be fixed. Trust me, I was contemplating quitting right there to his face, but that wasn't the way I was. I go home around 10PM to change and call to gather what little crew was available. I arrive at work to see the biggest cluster-f--k I've seen since working there. I come up with a gameplan and the first thing to do was to lower the counter-weight, which is on tower 1. The counter-weight consists of an 8ft dia cement pipe around 8 ft long which is filled solid with cement.

So I climb up tower 1 (something similar below), release some tension on the counter-weight and decide to go ahead and re-groove the cables while I was on the tower. Now, unlike the photo below, since our tower 1 was the one that kept tension on the system, the pulleys were suspended by two parallel cables about 30 feet above water. The counter-weight has now been lowered to approx 15-20 feet below the cables I will be climbing on to get to the pulley. I begin my quest to get to the pulley by doing the usual upside down with feet and hands around the cable and inching my way out to the pulley. (this all happened in milli-seconds)While sliding my hand across the cable a frayed strand of cable shot through my glove and into my hand causing that hand to let go. My opposite hand was already off the cable because I was in the procees of bringing it above the other. So my upper falls, one of my legs were out of position and I was going to fall face first straight down on to the counter-weight. But! The one leg that was still around the cable caught the other cable parallel and allowed me enough time to grab back ahold with the hand that was stabbed.

I ended up finishing the job and got back home around 6AM. I quit the following day.

It might not sound that frightening to some, but there was no doubt in my mind that I would've been killed or seriously messed up had I fallen and hit that counter-weight on the way down.

Holy crap! He and his family were good friends of ours. My brother and I both went to school with him and Grant with Brent being a few years behind.

Don't they own the "Cake Lady" bakery in Friendswood? Or did Jeff go his own direction? I think I might've heard he got fed up and went on his own. Can't remember.

That's the guy. Grant and Brent took over the Cake Lady after his mother passed away and Jeff has a mobile home dealership here in Pearland. I buy and sell mobile homes here. PM me your name and I'll let him know that we talked. Small world(or metro area).

Ah, that's right. I remember about the mobile home business now. I also heard about what Brent went through last year. Rough, huh?
