I agree with MocTastic....those Chisox uniforms with shorts were bad. I was a young spud back then and I still remember the team picture baseball card with them all in shorts. I may have to go dig through the cards and see if I can find it again.
Rockem Sockem Robots and the Crash Up Derby car set were awesome presents. Almost forgot about my Evel Kneviel with stunt cycle and the Six Million Dollar man action figure.
HUMP-Daaaay is an instant classic. Sports Center has so many good ones it's hard to pick just one. You forced me to Google Terry the office linebacker just so I could laugh at it again....and then I wasted 10 minutes watching other crap. Auburn is a big surprise this season but where the heck did Missouri come from? We'll see how they handle the rest of their schedule but right now they look good (SEC East good, not to be confused with SEC West good).
Congrats on the upcoming 3rd bday and thanks for the 5@10. I'm ready for Saturday and some co-colas. Giddy up.
This just in from the Weather Channel....Hell has frozen over...my Pirates have made the playoffs! Woohoo! I might have to break out my Willie Stargell star hat.
NASCAR: I agree with Moctastic's points with one adder: Expand the chase field to start with but cut it down each week like the FedEx in golf. If you don't make the playoffs you shouldn't be in the post season.
NCAA: They get paid now. How can anyone argue that 4 to 5 years of college tuition, books, lodging and food doesnt' equate to already being paid for their services? If you change it it will get crazy since only the schools that can afford to pay will get the players. Would we have a salary cap situation like MLB for the SEC schools to offset the UTC's of the NCAA? Oh my head is spinning!
What movie action hero would make the worst TV series? Rambo
What athlete would a steroids scandal break the internet? Tiger
Where will Bruce Pearl land? Who cares
I caught the Marvin the Martian reference (the best Looney Toons villain ever)....one small correction.. it is the illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator. You make me very, very angry.
Busch...a man who can tolerate the taste of 15 Busch lite's proabably deserves to be escorted off! LOL. Just kidding, they all taste the same after the first 3 anyway.
Notre Dame's uniforms were fine just they way they were! WTH? (family interweb version). Next thing you know UT will have checkerboard helmets. Lord help me. Best uniform? Penn State home uniforms..simple and classic.
Celebration rules should be stricter in the NFL. If what is happening now after TD's isn't unsportsmanlike conduct, I don't know what is.
Is it Friday yet? Darn.
Woods, Adam Scott, Luke Donald
Johnny Football is done.
So is our fearless 5@10 leader...you just THINK she's understanding. You will pay my friend...you will pay.
JMC... Yes there is a Mrs. Spud and would you please refrain from giving her any ideas or added incentive to shop! I must now block her TFP interweb access for a day or so until this rolls off the main page.
I love minor league baseball and dont attend as much as i should but I still enjoy the radio broadcasts of Lookout games... The main announcer on 105.1 cracks me up sometimes with his rants and off the cuff comments about umpires, fans and other ballparks.
I will watch at least some of the All Star game. I keep waiting for another Pete Rose at the plate moment but we know that ain't gonna happen. I did enjoy the HR derby last night.
Just put Spurrier and Saban on the Rushmore twice each. Spurrier with a FL visor and a SC visor and Saban with LSU and Bama shirts. No one else is close.
Hot dogs consumed in 8 minutes? Probably 2...I just don't get the fascination over competitive eating contests and don't get me started on the fact that ESPN will be airing the contest. Now as far as competitive drinking is concerned...many adult beverages consumed in under 8 minutes back in my college days.
UTC should be dissapointed in anything other than a 9-3 season and a trip to the playoffs.
Holiday top 5 submission: "Holiday Road" song in Vacation...classic.
Puig hasn't been up there long enough for All Star status but man, he has really put up some fantastic numbers in the short time he's been there.
