Hank Baskett the free agent without a team at the moment. They let him go to keep Vick.

Baskett was picked up by the colts.

Urlacher is out for the year.

Yes, I was talking about high school football.

Proud NMSU alum but I know the Aggies are horrible at football.

I admit I stay mostly in the north when I can find housing. I started visiting more southern destinations. Eastern destinations get to be more like Texas. If you like hot move down in elevation if you like snow and cool go up in elevation. That is anywhere in NM. The mts of the southern sections are just as lovely as the more expensive northern destinations. I tend to stay at elevations that are between 20 degree to 86 degrees. I think places like Roswell are more reasonable than the northern destinations. Famington, Gallup and Grants I would avoid for a bunch of reasons you don't even want to know except to say Mother Theresa called it a desparate place.If you like the city albuquerque has any thing you want to look for, plentiful jobs, reasonable housing etc. I think Truth or Consequence and Roswell and other central moving south get more reasonable in housing and afordable retirement towns. The question is a little like asking red or green. I take the freshly roasted green every time.

I have lived in both northern and southern new mexico. I personally love northern new mexico. I live in Las Vegas and I really love living in this small town. It takes 10 minutes to get from one side to the other. I know all of my kids teachers by their first names. The local restaurants all serve that wonderful northern new mexico food. Everyone is so friendly! The restaurants in southern new mexico serve more of a tex-mex kind of mexican cuisine. I did find a few gems in southern new mexico and found the people to be fairly friendly. It really is like comparing apples to oranges though. They are so very different. Everything from culture to food! They are both great. I LOVE living in New Mexico.
