Tom Landry. Jerry Jones firing him and hiring Jimmie Johnson were the last 2 decent moves he made as an owner.
Great call on Carlton. I was a huge Phillies fan as a kid and watching Carlton's last few years were just so sad.
Wow. I am actually dumber than that. I was having the same thing happen. And never thought to refresh. I just happened to clean out all my browser history earlier today (for, uh, reasons) and the site is now back. I was getting tired of looping through Twitter to get to the site. Yes, I am an idiot.
Conley was a tremendous point guard, defender and an under-rated slasher to the basket. Russell is a much better shooter and rebounder. Both can handle the ball well, both could pass it well. I would lean to Russell only because he is on another level as a scorer and 3 point threat.
What a relief, this is fabulous news! Thanks DJ for going above and beyond. To celebrate let me buy you another cat.
And take a bow 11W Communit, you guys are fucking awesome!
618 - I like so many others here have felt the hopelessness that you are feeling and considered what you are considering. And like them, I am extremely glad I never did it. I only have a couple words of advice - DON'T DO IT. Suicide is not the answer. There is peace to be found in this world. It may not be easy, but it is there. And once you find it, you will be glad you stuck around. Please take up any of the offers to talk, it will make a huge difference.
Secondarily - you 11W glorious sonsofbitches are about the best group of nameless, faceless best friends anyone could ask for. I can admit I teared up a bit reading the outpouring of support and offers to help. Bless you all.
I still watch Survivor - one of the few shows the entire family can watch.
My wife watches The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but I cannot stomach those. The contestants are so obviously attention/fame whores it makes me ill.
I do kind of like Alaskan Bush people, bunch of whack jobs that they are.
I like Pawn Stars (the one in Vegas), but can't take Hardcore Pawn - everything seems like a scripted confrontation, either between the customers and staff or the brother and sister that work there.
American Idol peaked when Kelly Clarkson won. I remember watching her original audition on one of the first episodes and saying that she should win it. She was a true talent (singing wise anyway). Every season after that has been a disappointment in my eyes.
And I like the Home Improvement shows to get ideas and see how the "pro's" do it (but like SlumLord said above, not sure if this qualifies as reality TV).
Fawlty Towers! Forgot about that one.
Most of mine have been mentioned, but haven't seen anyone say "Police Squad". Was on in the early 80's for only 1 season I think, was Leslie Nielson at his best. Arrested Development has been mentioned, but the original seasons were freaking hilarious.
Yea, I thought the same thing when we played Indiana and were an 8 point favorite. But we covered that, to my surprise. Vegas knows best.....
Drivin N Cryin
Another tough list and again something that would probably change by the hour, but off the top of my head:
Boston - Boston
Pearl Jam - 10
Marillion - Clutching at Straws
Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Blues Traveler - Travelers and Thieves
Social Distortion - Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell
Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil
Blink 182 - Take off Your Pants and Jacket
Dio - The Last in Line
Dream Theater - Images and Words
Surprised you didn't combine Johnny Cash and Social D into one line - "Ring of Fire"
Absolutely, and a great (although normally way too short) live show. Such a "gritty" sound that I never seem to tire of.
I like that you say "Top 5" and then list 6, typical of any music head (which I totally get). My top 5 can vary wildly depending on mood, but throwing 5 out there that come to mind at this moment. A couple of hours from now this list would probably be different.
1. "The Invisible Man" - Marillion
2. "Red Barchetta" - Rush
3. "Ball and Chain" - Social Distortion
4. "Canadian Rose" - Blues Traveler
5. "We Believe" - Good Charlotte
Honorable mention to "Sultans of Swing" (the live version on Alchemy) by Dire Straits since you mentioned them originally and I immediately thought of that song.
Wow, I am already changing my mind by the second as I think of different songs, but I will leave the list as is.
Read about this in the MTV book, you are not even kidding when you say this video ended his career. It literally did. By all accounts Billy was a super nice guy and let the director take over and was promised it would look way different after they went through post-production. Obviously, he was lied to and this hot mess took him from selling out 20,000 seat arenas to a has been within 9 months. Unbelievable.
Yea, except he's not even a fan. Just a stupid jagoff who gives us all a bad name!
Just now realizing I have really missed noon kickoffs. Let's get it on!
This is just beautiful. +1
Yep, I grabbed them at -12.5 earlier in the week. Their lines always move up so I got in early.
It does feel like a lot of points but they have been scoring a ton, and even in the cold I think they can hammer their way to a 20 point win. I will gladly take you 35-17 prediction, feels about right.
The good news is my neighbor just moved and his house is empty, man does he now have a lot of leaves in his yard.
Right - the leaves stand no chance against me this afternoon, I will be focused and full of energy!
That was a great article, based on the fact that I wanted to hear more. I was hoping the author would hang out with Reg all day at the bar and recount all the cool stories that I am sure a guy like that has. Great article.
I initially read your comment and thought maybe you were being a bit "conspiracy theory-ish", but after looking at the pictures and the article, I think you are absolutely right. Look at how immaculate that office is, everything is perfectly in place, clearly they had the office ready for someone to come in and take pictures, and there is no way this is accidental. The table is perfectly set up, no way this just happened to be left out.
