Tennessee's oil reserves are infinitely better. Just like the Titans will be infinitely better than the Vikings.

West Texas is much the same way. The Bakken and Eagle Ford/Permian oil shale fields are just blowing up right now. You would know believe the amount of money that the big oil companies are investing in those areas


Yep. I worked on a purchase agreement for a business that is being acquired by a large national conglomerate for about 4.5 million. Ten years ago, it probably would have sold for a fifth of that. But we are apparently getting a Cinnabon, so now we know we're big time Smile

So the game is at 4:25? Do we have any prime time games this year?

Also, I have been offered Chris Johnson for Demarco Murray...thoughts?

The NFL gave every team at least 1 primetime game this year.

Are you feeling the oil boom?

I work for a company that sells instrumentation to oil companies, and there are a TON of projects going to west ND. Gotta love oil shale.


There certainly is no unemployment problem in ND...now housing is a whole different ball of wax. Wink


Since quite a few of the workers are moving their families into Bismarck, there has been an increase of 500 elementary school students over last school year! Housing is tight, and enrollment is down at Bismarck State College (where I teach some Chem labs) since students cannot find housing. Tons of job postings: I think unemployment is around 3% or less.

unreal.

and the oil boom here is very much seen as being in its "infancy."


They are "finishing" about 8 wells a day here in Norse Dakota! We are projected to surpass Texas as the largest oil-producing State in just a few years.

from what i've heard, the Bakken Oil Fields in ND are called "the Kitchen," because they are the source of where oil in other areas came from too. the easier to extract oil has been pulled off out of these other areas, and now that they have the technology developed to go to the Kitchen, the original source, it is now being pulled off.

some estimates say it is a 30 year job to do so.



do we have any geologists on board?

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was limited in practice for the second day in a row Thursday. Coach Leslie Frazier, however, said his quarterback looked better than Wednesday.

Frazier: "It's didn't bother him very much on Monday, but it was really sore Wednesday. It was much better today. He didn't have any inhibition today. He was fine."

In Williston, it's about 1% unemployment. I'm fortunate that I'm in a position to buy a house right away, or I wouldn't be able to afford to stay out here. My first two months here, I paid a $1000.00 a month to stay in a bedroom in someone's house.

Sitting with a 1-3 record through the first four weeks of the season, the Tennessee Titans lead the league in points allowed per game yielding a crazy 37.8 points per game to the opposition. In fairness, they have played some high powered offenses but at no point is it ok to allow 34pts, 38pts, 41pts and 38pts in consecutive weeks to open the season.

Tennessee allows 285 yards per game and 2.5 touchdowns per game passing. Facing the run, Tennessee has not been much better. They are allowing 136 yards and over one touchdown per game to opposing running backs.

The Titans defensive unit has only sacked the opposing quarterback six times, they only have one interception and have recovered only one fumble.

I will be concerned with the Vikings offense if they cant put together atleast 3 TD drives on offense. This is the type of defense MN needs to exploit.

I get the feeling Ponder will throw his first INT this game lol. Or worse will play pretty well, but have 2 INTs or something lol.
