  1. the area around the stadium in St Louis is awesome. Baseball village and all the other bars. Such a cool atmosphere.
  2. Thanks for sharing. Sorry to hear about your struggles but glad you’re keeping your head above water and moving forward. I shared my story in a previous thread and don’t need to do it again, but it’s not a cut and dry as people think. It’s not a sign of weakness either. You summed it up really well, sometimes there is actually a true need behind the addiction. Keep pushing man, it wouldn’t be the same here without you!
  3. Didn't the same thing happen a couple years back? Something changed with the threads, so pitchers with curves and sliders weren't getting the bite they did all season long? I seem to remember it messing with Darvish badly in particular. If you make a change, you have to do it in the offseason.
  4. I was at the Cards Nats game last night. Crazy how many Edmonds jerseys there were. Might’ve been #2 only to Musial. It was cool to see Howie almost hit the cycle. I was rooting for him....loudly....in an Angels hat. Best fans my ass. Scoreboard and organ prompted everything. Was pretty quiet for two teams in playoff races. Disappointed in the atmosphere honestly. Cool stadium though and the weather was perfect.
  5. I wonder if some good can come from this all. Maybe shed some prime time light on how nasty the Fentenyl situation is. This review of a documentary sounds pretty dire. Worse than the crack epidemic or the “regular” opioids. Maybe having someone in the public eye like Tyler can open more eyes than just Billy Joe Bob from Kentucky. It’s be nice to find a positive though it obviously won’t come close to being worth it all. Check out this article from USA TODAY: Ben Westhoff's 'Fentanyl, Inc.' confronts horrible truths about America's opioid epidemic https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/books/2019/09/02/ben-westhoff-fentanyl-inc-opioid-epidemic/2155698001/
  6. Reading the article this paragraph made me chuckle: In total, authorities seized over 30 kilograms of fentanyl, 30 kilograms of heroin, five kilograms of cocaine and over $700,000. It's the largest drug takedown in Virginia in 15 years. They also seized roughly 24 firearms, including an AK-47. Like the AK-47 is the most sinister part of this whole thing. Wow. And then there's this: There's been an increased effort to hold China accountable for drugs like fentanyl that are manufactured there and smuggled to the U.S. A bipartisan bill in the Senate would sanction Chinese labs and traffickers that export the drug. Sanctions? oooooooo
  7. holy shit! That should get terrorism charges or something.
  8. I've known of people that have had fentanyl prescribed as a patch before. A patch that transfers the medication as a time release through the skin. I think the nasty stuff that is out on the streets is cooked down versions of the raw, non-prescription stuff. But I am just guessing.
  9. never heard about having to check anything. And I fly internationally as well as domestically with my prescriptions. As long as they are in the original bottle with the prescription label you are OK. I bet when they are dumped, non-descriptly into a baggie, daily dispenser, etc, that's probably when flags might go up. Especially without the orginally labelled bottles or paper prescriptions.
  10. That is absolutely correct. I fly often, with 4 prescription bottles every time. Never once been looked at.
  11. I'd wager heavily on that. Or if there were previous injuries, even back to minor league ball. That's an insane cocktail of drugs.
  12. I've now seen the reports conflicting between the actual type of drugs. OC Register says Oxycodone (which would be OxyContin) and CNN says Oxymorphone (which would be Opana ER) AND oxycodone. Opana ER is an extended release drug and is generally much stronger than the OxyContin. I believe they also have stopped production of it, so most likely that would not be from a doc at this point either. Wonder which is true? Or maybe they both show up the same on a toxicology report? I'm not expert on abuse either, but I though I read that extended release drugs aren't preferred by abusers because you have to break them down or cook them up in order to get the quick high. And they typically have additives like bitterants to prevent this. Any phrama/chem experts?
  13. And that is absolutely frightening to think about
  14. Really love your honest and open post, but I do disagree on one point. Yes Skaggs is responsible, but the employee (if this is true) should also bear some responsibility. Just as if the secretary down the hall sold drugs to a fellow employee in the workplace and they OD'd. That's just reality. Plenty of blame to go around. Glad you were able to get away from the oxy
