Quick one for the Rushmore... how's abouts >> Tom Brady, Ringo Starr, Wolf Blitzer, and Jerry Springer.
I'll take Dabo Swinney, Head Coach, Clemson Tigers.
As for the old school SNL folks, they were good in their newness, but Akroyd may be the only one that cracks the top five.
Yes, the good guys won that game, which made them 2-0 against other Tigers from other conferences in that barn for the season. Only 20 weeks until opening weekend. Already got the little lady prepping for the season opener against the Dawgs.
As if Atlanta needed another feather in it's cap...that Chick-Fil-A Bowl between the two sets of Tigers was one hum-dinger of a ball game.
For the Contest, I''l take P. Mickelson, Keegan Bradley, Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy, and Padraig Harrington.
Contest?!?! I'll take Indiana (Go Dukes!!) and Oregon.
Was wondering where Durden would land. UTC sounds like it has the kind of offensive talent that he can work with and be successful. As a JMU season ticket holder, the play calling has been both frustrating and predictable over the past few years. Someone had to go and it was Durden, basically time for a change, and he became the victim of a head coach that wanted to play a certain way and to heck (F-O-I-B for Pete’s sake) with what was called from the coaches’ box. Needless to say, we Dukes are yearning for the return of the Forward Pass to the gameplan this coming fall.
Tough few months for Livestrong. Hopefully the backlash from Lance’s admission doesn’t hurt what has been accomplished by those hardworking folks. Writing was on the wall when he separated himself from the organization.
Good point 5er about the only ones upset are the ones getting caught. Everything is alright as long as they are cashing checks and their highlights are on SportsCenter. You never hear any of them deciding they can’t live with the guilt anymore and coming clean. Seems like they deny until the bitter end, then, only then, are they sorry and teary eyed at a press conference. Pathetic. All around the world …same song!
Quick drop for the Rushmore...Archie Bunker, Norm, Fonzi, and Jerry Seinfield.(Actually, you could probably insert any of the other three leads for Jerry in this spot)
For picking the UVA - UNC game, my recommendation would be to borrow Todd962's 12 sided die and start wishing for some turnover spells.
Oops I failed on the better point of clarity when referring to the Thursday nite game. I was referencing your idea that it might suit you better to burn up your entertainment with a match instead of applying it to the UVA v UNC game. Old ACC rivals. Guess I did just list National Football League rivals. Lesson learned.
Yes, I miss hockey, much to the missus’ chagrin. At least I’ve been able to parlay the lack of hockey games into more tailgating and football games. With a lack of games to discuss, I’ve taken to using hockey terminology in meetings at work, which has most wondering ‘what’s up with the new guy’. Gary Bettman is the devil. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Either of those names are clear winners. I always get a laugh when I think about D’Brickashaw Ferguson and how well he really fit in with the wine and cheese crowd at UVA. Which brings me to the Thursday night game and another entertainment mantra that I have learned over the years- Don’t mess with rivalries. Packers v Bears, Jets v Dolphins, Cowboys v Indians. Just run away b/c all bets are off!
May be late on the word of the day game, but we had one back in the old university days that was thrown around a lot. Schlonkered. As in “Did you see Todd last night, that kid was schlonkered.” Even had ole Van Earl Wright throw it out during one of his Headline News updates.
