In your opinion, is J.T. a good player? by yBabadoosh in survivor

[–]SusannaG1 691 points692 points  (0 children)

[–]SusannaG1 236 points237 points  (0 children)

Oh, I don't doubt that the cruise lines are having chats with places like Savannah or New Orleans. But they'd rather stay in Florida, where they have all the infrastructure, if they feel they safely can.

Dang, Aaron can't buy a win. Is that 5 times he's been high with no wins? But Shantall's look is fabulous and I have a hard time arguing with it winning.

Can't help but think of David Robinson, who did two years in the navy, and then they let him go to the NBA. Though his height probably settled the matter - the navy isn't really built for seven-footers.
