SOS, 10 Ring:
There's talk in Oakland about ditching Reggie. Who are they going to replace Mckenzie with...Dr. Pepper's Drink Hawker?
Nobody wants to go to Oakland. Not free agents, not coaches, not GMs. The Raiders, running three in a one team market, must get to LA--the promised land. Some say small market San Antonio is the elixir. Being the third team in Texas not named for Texas? Yeah, right.
Getting out of Oakland will be like "Escape from New York."
Full Metal Jacket, Midway, Heartbreak Ridge, Patton
Admiral Nagumo: These Raiders sacrifice themseleves like Denver Samarai.
10 Ring, my weekend loser is LSU's #8 Trey Quinn. Quinn drops on perfectly thrown pass just over the first down marker to snuff a promising drive. A bit later he does it again, hunched down in a hole making no attempt to move his body to a wide but catchable ball snuffing yet another promising drive in the 4th Quarter.
Or maybe I'm talking about the OC.
Rushmore of Important TV
All in the Family, Band of Brothers, Star Trek (First Black and White Kiss on TV. Women in short skirts and long black boots, who were equals in every way [Grin]. Built its own audience in syndication to six movies and four spin offs and two more movies.) The Civil War by Ken Burns.
Does the TP Sports Staff have any info on 10 and 0 Loudon?
John_Proctor, thank you for the kind words for Coarch Davis, pbuh,. My cleansing of the Lane Kiffin blight at the Raiders, Tennessee and USC-west is to wait till late in the forth of yet another Raider twenty plus deabcale and throw Lane in the Black Hole with Darth Raider and the rest of the gang.
10, Ring. "The Big Train," so named by someone you might also have heard of, Grantland Rice. 416 wins, 2.17 ERA all gathered for a mostly for a pathetic Washington Senators franchise. Best season 36 wins, 1.09 ERA on a second place 1913 Senators club.
Walter Johnson was one of the first five in the Hall of Fame.
Don Corrado Prizzi: Who's dead, who's dead?
10 Ring, Steve Spurrier to retire? Put this man in a booth or with a panel of Coach's all day Saturday. I say the CBS SEC Show is the place. You think those two curmudgeon Muppits in the Balcony were hilarious?
Ditto on Auburn Gus Malzahn. As someone close to me is wont to say, "It's not an opportunity if you're not prepared for it.
On Coach Mullen, who knows what lurks in the hearts of men. I do know this, he's more than a football coach in the MSU community. A component of the MSU success is Mullen's inspirational leadership. Not sure if that works at much larger venue. Could be like Lou Holtz trying to coach the Jets.
Ten Ring, through the miracle that is SEC TV replay, I was able sit down Sunday and catch the final sequence of the Mississippi game. Jonathan Ford made the perfect tackle, the only one that would work. Ford pulled Treadwell down by his waistband stopping his forward momentum. That's pure instinct not taught on any practice field.
The Weekend's Winner #1 is Jonathan Ford.
The Weekend's Winner #2 are the Mocs.
The Weekend's Winner #3 UT's Josh Dobbs.
Weekend Total Loser, Georgia. The Bulldogs hand Missouri the leverage, with only A&M, Vols and Hogs left. These felines will be the winner in the clubhouse, while Georgia on the last weekend of November scurries about trying to pick up that last win against Tech to get to the Gator Bowl.
10 Ring, I don't see these Dogs whipping up on Auburn.
Stewie, Chas and MJ and most probably correct. Obama cuts off his finish, comes across the ball, and his weight transfer off his left foot is just pathetic. Too many moving parts here to have a swing that is to be relied upon.
This much is obvious, Barry has never taken a lesson.
Maybe a Golf Czar would be an appropriate taxpayer expense to keep the country safe from future embarrassment at ProAms and the like. That said, I'd play Obama at Pine Valley, only because I'd like to play Pine Valley.
High School Football Disasters for $50, 10 Ring. Which area coach went for it of 4th and 6 from their their own four yard line Friday night? Which TFP writer blamed the kids intead of the coach?
10 Ring, saw Fury the other night. The tailor made costuming was spot on. It's also nice to see a war movie with limited CGI. The producers had real Shermans to work with. Other than that it's just another shoot'em, except for Brad Pitt (our flawed hero) bartering six eggs with two German girls for a chance to clean himself up. I guess the scene is there to tell us that Mr. Pitt is brutal, but he's no rapist. A scene of this sort was cut from Apocalypse Now. Boring.
The movie does have merits beyond the above and as such is worth a ticket, but producers tout all you like, this is not Oscar material.
10 Ring, isn't a bit early to gush on about the Tide? So they got off the mat and dusted themselves off to defeat an already exposed and reeling A&M at home and a woeful Tennessee on the road.
Saban takes his charges to Death Valley November 8th to do battle with a wounded but fully functional Saber Tooth Tiger left for dead by MSU and Auburn. LSU is the team that has truly gotten off the mat and done something: beat #3 Ranked Mississipi. New look Bama ain't faced that kind of test yet let alone pass it.
