Re: Random Thoughts Again

If he was in any one of a dozen bars in Key West over the weekend the odds are good. Odds are better I wouldn't remember

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Sorry if I've missed replying to any post but it's been hectic with work travel, work and finally getting in a long weekend of vacation getting loaded (someday I will post about the restorative properties of adult pedialyte) But for now if any of you certain movie buffs find yourself in Key West che...

Re: Epilogue to the 2018 Penn State Season

BWI had a feature on WR drop rates last year - to no one's here's surprise PSU's was among worst in nation and about double teams like OSU, Bama, Clemson - JJ, Polk, Thompkins, Hippenhaimer had rates above average and 3-4X rate of other top teams front line guys. Hence 1st year WR coach not being th...

Shore - when you left MD and didn't look back that should have included the O's. Time to find a new horse - you can enjoy baseball past the first day of summer this year.

Re: 2018 NFL Season

Giants have two decent OL in Solder and Hernandez and now picked up Zeitler -so they are building a line. If healthy they have a decent TE and Shepard is a decent WR. Offensively they can't miss on the QB - Eli killed them - he's slow to get rid of the ball, was a statue in the pocket and was scared...

Re: College: attending, paying for, etc.

They tried to accuse Thorton Mellon of this but when he nailed the Triple Lindy they knew he was a legit athlete. But that movie does show how long money has influenced the process. And what hypocrites inhabit colleges who demonize private sector wealth while stuffing as much cash in their pockets f...

Re: 2018 NFL Season

Actually if you look at Giants moves in totality it's not too bad: Traded Vernon for Zeitler Let Collins go FA (yeah they should have traded him) Traded OBJ for a 1st, 3rd, Peppers So they lost DL, DB, WR - all very good players but all very high dollar, one an unpredictable PITA with injury issues ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Just so we touch all the bases - we have to throw in a walking in the snow uphill story. 40 years Ago My friends and I would walk about 2 miles to get to the legendary Hackett's Park Hill for sledding - by my memory the run was probably a 30% angle, went over a 1/4 mile and we probably reached speed...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

His contract expired in Baltimore (he was at $17MM) and they were not going to bring him back for rebuild. Actually I believe he wanted to stay there as he is pretty deeply embedded in the community - he actually declined a trade to Phils in the stretch run. There may have been better offers form hi...
