David - you talk of the tantalizing sway of Hollywood, and it's propensity to lure us into a state of "pseudo-emotion." I agree. But isn't there also a tantalizing sway at work in the aftermath of the unfortunate shooting of young Michael Brown? I will be the first to admit I do not know the facts involved in this case, who really does, other than the officer(s) and the witness. Perception of facts and actual events has a way of a changing very quickly after an event transpires. Do we honestly believe that this white officer wantonly shot this young man in cold blood while the victim's hands were in the air? Ask yourself, do you really believe he did that? Or are you just hoping that it happened so that your pseudo-emotion can win you some sort of ground in the unfortunate, ongoing struggle between the races that still exists in this country.
Yep, so the logical conclusion is to ban guns, right? Cuz, you know, if you do that, then there won't be any guns, so there won't be any gun crimes, right? Hmm, yeah right.
Can we carve Marion Co. out of TN and send it to Alabama?
Whisenhunt sounds like quite a hire. Besides his football prowess, he is also an Eagle Scout, a darn good golfer from Augusta (he once shot a 72 on the National, including an eagle on number 11, yes number 11, during the round). Oh, by the way, he has also carded 2 holes in one in his golf career.
I love football (LOVE football), but I ain't no football genius. However, I am smart enough to have figured out early on that the Broncos never snapped the ball, on any count or cadence, prior to Peyton uttering the word "Omaha" (which he did on almost every down). Kind of funny that the Chargers D-line couldn't figure that out. I know, I know... all the noise, being in the moment, etc, but still.
It received no play in the TFP, but the truth came out about the vandalism at Baylor's stadium two nights before the annual Baylor/McCallie game this Fall. As some on here suspected, it was an inside job on the part of Baylor (presumably by students, but who knows). So tell me, how is it that the guys in Marion County are getting skewered over a similar incident (plus some playbook stealing) while Baylor skates? Oh, that's right...
I hate when a team wins on a bad call, and had Georgia won the game, with Murray's "touchdown" making the difference, I would have hated that outcome. Not that any Georgia fans would have cared though, because hey, a Dubya is a Dubya, right Dawgs? Glad Auburn won in the end because Murray's "touchdown" would have been a tragic way for the Dawgs to win (from the perspective of anyone other than a Dawg fan that is).
Speaking of McCarver...
Name the man who said, "Where McCarver at?"
"the salt was intercepted and returned for a TD."
Now that's funny, I don't care who you are!
Thanks for making me laugh and turning a crap day into a decent one Jay!
We are all God's children. We have all fallen short of His desires for us. I for one am a humungous (sp?) sinner. I'll cast no stones. God created us all, and I personally believe He will save us all. It is only through His grace that we have a chance.
