Best:  1986 = The Band at the old Front Row Theatre.  January 1986.  One of only two times in my life this happened.  The crowd refused to leave.  The house lights came on and everyone just clapped and cheered louder.  The promoter came out and said, thank you, and good night.  Drive safely.  The crowd clapped louder and got more raucous.  Finally, Levon Helm came out and said, "Damn, you folks are nuts!  WE've played everything!"  The crowd cheered louder.  They came back out and reprised about 5 songs.  Two months later, Richard Manuel was dead.  IT was like the crowd knew this was it.

Damn. Just, damn.

1st: A KISS cover band at Americana amusement park.

Best: The Kinks. No one and I mean no one is a better pure rock show.

Favorite of the last few years: Screaming Females. Marissa P blows my mind.

You need to talk to your doctor. Get diagnosed, schedule an appointment with a specialist. If you need meds, then start getting them built up in your system. You need to get your brain chemistry stabilized first, everything else comes after.

I do like his slightly more serious rolls....Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go etc.

I was the same way about Jim Carrey. Hated his over the top stuff. 

Adam Sandler is the worst.

Comment 06 Mar 2015
The performance of the A-10 during DS has been greatly exaggerated. They were retasked with lower threat missions after taking a pounding from SAMs in the first few days. After a couple of high friendly fire incidents the USMC requested only Marine & Naval aviation handle CAS missions for our AOR. Targeting pods have far outstripped the Mk 1 eyeball in effectiveness...and the A-10 was without a modern targeting pod until recently. Most of the A-10 proponents are unknowingly arguing for a COIN platform. CAS has become the domain of precision guided munitions. The 'Corps is the premier CAS team and has been handling the roll just fine without the A-10 for decades. The A-10 is not surviveable over a modern battlefield (no, Afghanistan is not a modern battlefield). The Warthog is going away. Under the plan proposed by the AF it's just going to happen a couple of years earlier.

I considered them, but would hate to face that offense every year.

So you're making long term conference decisions based on a single coach who will be gone in a decade?

Comment 13 Feb 2015

Drop PSU to watch the meltdown, and because that place is a cesspool.

This. A thousand times this.

Kick out PSU & invite Pitt. Done.

Comment 12 Feb 2015

By population ..we in there.

Per capita (NFL players per 100K residents)...

#9 Ohio - 0.674
#13 New Jersey - 0.573

New Jersey & DMC are both fertile recruiting areas. They're in the same territory as PA, IL & TSUN.


P.S we can debate with out u trying2 make me look  stupid.

Posting hard numbers is not 'trying2 (sic) make you look stupid'.

Education wise we do well too.

Yes academically Rutgers is a mid-pack B1G school.

We will bring this BIG10 east in a couple of years.

Perhaps, but that's a big mountain and right now Rutgers is at the base looking up. The reality is that the RU athletic department is nowhere close to being competitive with other schools in the conference.

We not here for no cable deal,

Rutgers was added because it gives the B1G access to east coast media markets. That IS the bottom line. The other schools aren't taking a pay cut to add a new member & it's the only way that Rutgers was able to pay for it's membership. Nebraska moved the needle because it meant the addition of a championship game & it is a national name. Rutgers brought neither.

Kareem Walker prove that theory wrong,how bout Jabrill Pepper,an #1 Rashan Gary.

Increased access to new recruiting grounds is a nice ancillary benefit but it was not the reason the school was added.

Let's be frank, NJ recruiting already effectively belonged to the B1G (via PSU).

Comment 12 Feb 2015

So,  I have a prety good streak going but it certainly could be wrong.


Seriously though, for the -12 to have a championship game one of two things has to happen...

1. They have to add a minimum of two teams. The conference has stated repeatedly & firmly that they are not interested in expansion. Even if that is a smoke screen and they do expand it's extremely unlikely that new members would be able to be added in time for the 2015 season.

2. They NCAA rules requiring a minimum of 12 teams for a championship game would have to be changed. The ACC is currently pushing to get that to happen (because nobody gives a damn when Duke whens their division), but so as of right now it doesn't seem to have any traction with the B1G, Pac & SEC (who would have to be on board to get it passed).

Comment 12 Feb 2015

As of the 2014 season...
Players in the NFL by state of birth:

Players in the NFL by state of high school played:

This guy is not a rutgers fan. Pretty sure he's a Cuse or Uconn troll.

The upside down R in his avatar, the over the top pronouncements & the exaggerated bad grammar are all strong indications.

Ohio State used to have a similar stalker/troll who went by 'Jethro'.

New Jersey has a solid base of football talent. NYC on the other hand, has very little for it's size. There aren't many football fields for kids in the city.
