Thank you, GTH. Memories of TC as a kid. Wife is a big fan. As others have said, the way he cracked his castmates up on live TV was always funny. His work with Harvey Korman was fantastic and genuine. RIP Mr. Conway.

My totally impartial thought is that the team still has to get the pick right. To be clear, I am not a baskets fan at all and don't care one bit. However, I happen to live in the Philadelphia area and am actively wondering where Markel Fultz (sp?) is at this very moment. I have no clue. Is he even still in the league? How about Nerlens Noel? Last I heard he was in NO. Do they still have a team there? No idea. EDIT: oops. Re-read OP and they own the 1st pick. So, they must have a team there. Gotta get the pick right no matter, is my point.

Nope. Leave it as is. The regular season is a playoff as I see it, in that the results matter. It's not perfect, but it's the best it's ever been, by miles.

The sport may possibly suffer a black eye, if it was actually a sport. Turns out, it's horses racing. And horses really don't know what they're doing because horse. Silly. The whole thing is silly because horse.

I really can't stop laughing at Rashan Gary being drafted at #12 by GB. To me, that was just as shocking as the Duke QB being drafted by the Giants at #6. Both picks floored me. For contrast, Chase Winovich was drafted by some team at #77, iirc. [shrugs] Hey, I guess that's why I'm not a scout.

That should read "bona fide".

I knew precisely what you meant, '47. No need to self-correct. You're good.

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Absolutely not. In fact, my question with the whole contract that CU gave him is how a grown man named Dabo makes $9.3 million per. How does that happen? A grown man, damn near 50 years of age, allows himself to be called Dabo? Hell, no I don't want him coaching my team.

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Yep, I think she's a total nutjob. However, I've spent way more time thinking about this than I should have and have determined that she's is pleasant enough to look at. Been thinking about it since seeing Ctp Marvel over a month ago. Then I went the added step of watching her in some dreadful Netflix trash movie that she made with SL Jackson. All that, just to determine whether or not I thought she was attractive to look at. Can't do anything about crazy. If I put that part aside, I say she is attractive. Maybe not Earth-moving, as movie stars go. Kinda plain, as Frimmel said, but she's the type pf pretty that will probably age very well and she'll still be pretty when she's 60. Of course, she'll probably still be nuts, as well.

Caveman in a suit for Mangold. God, I'd love to pull off that look just once.

Comment 26 Apr 2019

You're correct and I think you said it better than I did. Not a natural ball catcher, is the appropriate term. He was incredible last year tho, so I got nothing but love for him. 

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Or perhaps NFL guys looked at film prior to 2018 and saw that he couldn't catch, until he suddenly could.

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Yeah, it's kind of a neat thing. Pretty certain his mom wouldn't be able to reveal if he were to remain involved with MCU, or not. He's just a kid still, anyway -17 or 18-, so it may be a stretch right now to take that on. I wouldn't know.

I did think it was nice how the Russo's were sure to bring so many back for some sort of cameo out of respect, and perhaps to ensure that they get a credit for the movie. Even if it was in memory or time travel form, they got a whole bunch of people a moment on screen. I guess Sir Anthony Hopkins was like, yeah, no thanks. Ha! 

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Thank you, Frimmel. I'll take your word for it, regarding the Odin/Thor scene. Appreciate the assist.
It was indeed, cool as hell when Cap wielded it, and quite funny when Thor told him "you get the little one" during the final battle scene.

Comment 26 Apr 2019

Can any of you dorks explain how Cap was able to summon lighting while he had the hammer? That's sticking with me and I don't get it. Pops Thor asked Thor after Sister Thor crushed the hammer if he was the God of Hammers, or the God of Thunder? Thor has the lighting power, not the hammer. So what gives?
Thanks, I'll hang up and listen.
