Re: Week 7: Bears @ Packers Thursday Night on CBS/NFLN

My first wife's mother was southern, and she put diced up potatoes in her chili and I loved it so much, I still do it today. You don't need a lot, and you don't necessarily even have to eat them, but the supposed reason for the potatoes is to soak up some of the grease from the meat and to reduce ga...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Politicus USA- Trump claims his debate performance was so awful because he was given a defective microphone.

Robin Greenspan- Actually, Donald lost the debate because his mic was ON.

Just something that ran across my Facebook feed that I found rather amusing. Carry on!

Re: Nobody cares about my fantasy team

After winning the league last year, I'm sitting 0-3 already this year. I was favored in all 3 match ups. I was favored by nearly 10 points this week, and I'm currently losing by 21.5 points and he still has Brees going tonight. Ass whoopin'. Think I have a bullseye on my forehead.

Re: David Ross

Has there been any word on who Lester will trust to catch his pitches next year? The David Ross era certainly didn't go as expected. And that's a good thing! It makes me happy! I do hope he comes back as a coach in the near future.

I would be kinda cool to see Trump eagerly waiting the results of the election in front of hundreds of cameras from behind his jail cell.

I only had the free one. Didn't like the way music was imported into it. But, to be fair, that was quite a few years ago. Their software might be a lot better these days.

Re: Week 2 Eagles (1-0) @ Bears (0-1), MNF 7:30 ESPN/780

Well, I watched that entire train wreck of a game, and I'm sad. It's going to be a long season. At least I don't have to make sure I have a clean Bears jersey to wear each Sunday. I'm too embarrassed to be seen in one at this point.

Downloaded the Tunity App to my phone. I liked it. It picks up the sound for any game showing on a tv near you. It's great for Sunday Ticket locations showing games, but not sound. With regular ear buds, I found I was able to hear the action while still carrying on conversations with those around me...

Damn. This sucks. I had the pleasure of meeting Fred (along with Yeti and CubmanPi) in Pittsburgh in the beginning of the 2008 season. Although he didn't know it, that was a really low point in my life. In the year and a half before, my wife and I had bought a house, gotten married, she finished he...
