I think as long as you don't wear anything in crimson, you will probably be safe. ;)

lol do you think the Mavs will take the series? i had so much belief in the Mavs that i put down money with the Mavs when they were down 2 games to 1 :D

since Austin doesnt have an NBA team i figured it would be split between the Spurs, Mavs, and Rockets. watch for my team (the Rockets) next year. with Yao healthy and our super young squad we're gunna be a force!

Well, given games 2,3, and 4... I'm not so sure. If they play like they did last night, they can definitely do it, but I'm not really counting on it too much. I just hate the Spurs, grrrrrrr.

I'm more of a football and hockey fan, anyway. ;)

i would say there are more spurs fans than anything else, but there are definitely fans of all three TX teams here. I don't really follow the NBA, but I haven't heard any shouting matches, and I'm sure any taunting is done in good fun.

Shut your dirty mouth!!! The Mavs are a great team, and they will win this series. After their performance last night, the Spurs are too demoralized to win another game. I'm really hoping Najara commits another flagrant. Each one of the Spurs deserve it - especially Gi-nose-bleed. He's such a flopper.

P.S. Sorry to deviate from the topic of this thread. I'm just really fired up after last night. This will be my last regarding the NBA.

In general, Mark Cuban's antics amuse me. I would not be sad if he won a title.

Whoa whoa whoa!! I said I was a Mavs supporter, no need to get angry. ;) I have a lot of pride for all of my Dallas teams, but the Mavs probably rank the lowest on my sports-love list, lol. They ARE a great team, I wasn't disagreeing, I meant to say that they're not the BEST, haha, is that better? Geez, I was just attempting to be diplomatic! If they play like they did last night tomorrow, they may very well win this series.

And I agree with you about those stupid Spurs... grrrrrrrrr.

At least now I know I won't be the only Mavs-shirt wearer at UT Law, lol.

hahaha it makes me so happy that I will be among Texas sports fans in law school.

If its any consolation, my boyfriend is a HUGE Mavs fan, so he makes up for my lackluster support. Its quite ridiculous, really. It gets me lots of free games, though. :-D

The first perk I've ever gotten as a paralegal. They put me on a flight to Asia with 6 hours warning for a week, but now I'm in the first class lounge waiting to fly home!

And have no one to talk to! Hi! On my first flight, one of my associates took my window seat because he likes the window seats but couldn't get one.

...I like the window seats...

In fact, I think I know what I'm going to have for dinner tonight.

I knew Stubbs as a BBQ sauce before I knew Stubbs, the restaurant...It's impossible to describe how much better that sauce is than anything else sold in big grocery stores. Just used it to cook some oven baked ribs, amazing.

Why should that be the case? As long as we're talking about subsidized loans, I would've thought that the best strategy is to take out as many loans as you are eligible for. Whatever you don't use, put it in an interest-bearing account and you earn money for nothing (like on MTV).

What am I missing?


Oh, by the way. This is my first post in this thread. I'm riding a couple of waitlists on the east coast, but I'm mostly likely coming to Austin in the fall. Hi y'all.

Problem is, only ~$8K a year is subsidized. The rest starts racking up interest the second it hits your account, so I guess that's why it makes sense not to take out any more than you know you'll need. I dunno. It's tough to budget for an area I've never lived in. I probably requested more than I needed on the EFAN. I'll just pay it back, or at least stay ahead of the interest on it, if I don't need it.

Welcome, btw.

You'd be surprised how much money you run through. Incidental expenses really rack up. $30 to join a student group, or $20 for new printer cartridge, and etc., add up really quickly. And don't forget, for those of you who don't already have a wardrobe from previous work or whatever, will need to purchase a decent suit, shirts, shoes, etc. That's a chunk right there.

And probably worst of all, in the last few weeks of the semester you pretty much run a tab at your favorite coffeeshop or whatever. that is $$$
