Exclamation is everybody chomping at the bit like me?

man lets get some moves already...I know alot of deals happen just before the draft but isnt it shocking that the Rasho deal is the biggest of the off season so far? after hearing all the rumors every day for so long - it would be nice to see some things actually happen...

from 6 - 10 tomorrow I am not moving from my couch - the draft should be awesome...

go raps...i know BC will dazzle us

First of all, I like your name.

Second of all, the off-season just started, give it some time. I'm real desperate myself to see if any moves will happen myself, but we got to remember that being a GM isn't an easy job and that BC can't just send a proposal and the other team will accept it right away. Im sure that BC is hard at work everyday trying to improve this team. We got how many months until the off-seasons over? I'm sure BC will make a few more moves.

I feel other GM's might be hesitant to make a deal, not wanting to possible look bad down the road (knowing how good his track record was in the past)

I don't know what "chomping at the bit" means, but I assume that I'd agree if I knew.

"Takes the meaning from an old country boy. Chomping (champing) at the bit, means raring to go. A bit is a metal mouthpiece of a bridle to control horses. It goes in the mouth. A horse that is chomping the bit is bitting down on the bit and pulling at the leathers. He is anxious and wants to take off. Sometimes as if in a race. "

Found this online - should help :rollingeyes:

No you didn't. It is just a saying to mean that someone is ready to go and can't wait!
