Comment 04 Mar 2015

I wore #24 in baseball because it was the day of my birth and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr.(who if I'm not mistaken wore it due to Ricky Henderson's who was his favorite player) .

In football I wore 75(Pace) until my soph year at which time on of the sr's  decided he had to have it. The coaches gave me 57 w/o even asking which was what I was going to ask for anyway...  Funny part of the story that they had printed up the programs with my name and 75 listed by it and the Sr by 57 so whenever the sr got a sack they would announce my name over the PA...

I had to Google it to be sure it was the series I thought it was, but I absolutely loved Tour of Duty, but I was all of 6 or 7 when it was on and until you posted the name I could never figure out what it was called. I had asked my dad repeatedly what that Vietnam War show we used to watch that had Paint it Black in the intro was called, but he couldn't remember either. Thank you for posting that it's been one of those things that would bug the shit out of me every now and then.

It's first sorted by losses, secondly sorted by %'s and lastly sorted alphabetical by first name. It was pretty much the only way that would allow you to list Crean at the bottom of the results and lend even more credit to the article. Perhaps I'm a bit over analytical, but to me it makes perfect sense.

As a browns fan I would not wish the misery of playing in Cleveland on one of my beloved Buckeyes. At least in Pittsburgh (and this makes me sick to say...) there is a chance of making the playoffs/Superbowl.

Comment 20 Feb 2015

I'm not sure if I had voiced that thought on this site or not, but I certainly am not opposed to it as an option should Braxton chose to do so. While he is one of the best QB's I've witnessed at the college level, his skill set at QB doesn't appear to translate well into the NFL. Surely there is a possibility his accuracy on the short passes has improved, but if not any NFL career he might have most likely will be in a role similar to Dennard Robinson.

If I'm Braxton I'm seriously considering a role change due to that fact alone, but again being a competitor, I love to show people that they are wrong and I'm sure that competitive fire is ingrained in Braxton as much as anyone. The kid is a baller and if he isn't the starting QB he needs to be on the field in some capacity. In any event I'll be happy to see him on the field regardless of position.

No doubt. The kid seems to have great instincts, shows great form breaking down, wrapping up, and tackling, and he has speed to spare. the one potential knock I saw in his highlights was how he would engage blockers and fight through them. I can't pinpoint what it was that bothered me with how he did this, but perhaps it was a technique thing? It's good that he does take on blockers, but he needs to hit the weight room a lot before he will be ready to continue doing so at the next level of competition. I have a feeling this kid is going to be a stud regardless of where he goes.

Because foreigners could be white, black, Asian, Middle Eastern, Indian, etc...He does not specify a particular race. We can infer what he is saying in a round about way, but that throws the race card in your court not his.

That's exactly what our team did in middle school. The guys that were already nearly full grown were the QBs/RBs just due to the fact it would take 2-3 at minimum to tackle them. 3 yards and a cloud of dust worked pretty well in that situation.

One line I remember every time I hear short circuit...

Los Locos Kick you ass. Los Locos kick you face. Los Locos kick you balls into outer space!

Comment 16 Feb 2015

Aerosmith, Steppanwolf, AC/DC, Queen, Eagles, Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger, The Who, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revial, Alice Cooper, Bob Dylan, ZZ Top, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Led Zeplin, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult, KISS, and Lynyrd Skynyrd all had some awesome albums the came out in the 70s. All amazing artists, but when anyone not born prior to 1970 gets asked about the the 70s music Disco is the most common response. Why I'll never know.

Comment 16 Feb 2015

All fair points Grateful, but the damage disco did it's a good thing the other genres produced such amazing talents to counter-balance it. One of the best and worst decades for music...

I would be sorely disappointed if there isn't a movie made about this season in the next 20-30 years. All of the odds stacked against the team, the suicide of a member shortly before the conference championship game, truly a once in a lifetime experience following this team.

I honestly doubt there will ever be another team to play the sport that overcomes this much and wins their conference, let alone a playoff championship against 2 juggernauts.
