  1. Aqua, we will truly miss you.

  2. Czarina has the coolest Huddle Buddy of them all.

  3. It has reached that special time of year in Michigan again. The summer is drawing to a close and the faintest signs of autumnal color may already be glimpsed on verdant leaves. The first frost of the season is not far away, though the waters of the big lakes are yet placid. The sounds of children splashing playfully along the shorelines is being replaced by the sounds of hunters in the woods. The Canadian geese have arrived, if only for a short while as they follow the sun southward. And for a few fleeting moments the hopes of Detroit Lions fans have again arisen with the approaching of September. For surely they think, this season will be different, the inevitable will surely be avoided. Alas, these dreams are destined to whither and fall as certainly as the leaves of summer will carpet the forest floor. All that remains is the question which has haunted the minds of generations long past... When? ------- So, here again is the contest: In which week will the Detroit Lions first lose by more than 20 points? --Also include your answer to the tie-breaker: How many points will Detroit score in the game in which they first lose by more than 20 points? --Further note that by tradition, if no team defeats the Lions by more than 20 points then spain automatically wins the award. --There is only one postcard, so the first person to guess the correct week/score combination will win the award (did you hear that, Hook?) The winner will receive a shiny technicolor postcard featuring the Edmund Fitzgerald, and the winner's name will be forever be immortalized on the award.

  4. Michele Tafoya's Replacement

    wow--I would have guessed that she was 10 years younger than that. (well, I would have guessed that last year anyway) I think the new haircut did her in.
  5. Who else is 0-2?

    In the BOTH Corleone Family, I have this 0-2 team (with normal starters in bold (I just grabbed Heiden off the waiver wire earlier tonight)): QB Bulger, Marc STL 9 QB Pennington, Chad NYJ 8 RB Alexander, Shaun SEA 8 RB Dillon, Corey NEP 7 RB Faulk, Marshall STL 9 RB Moats, Ryan PHI 6 RB Jacobs, Brandon NYG 5 WR Caldwell, Reche SDC 10 WR Calico, Tyrone TEN 10 WR Lelie, Ashley DEN 9 WR Mason, Derrick BAL 3 TE Heiden, Steve CLE 4 TE Cooley, Chris WAS 3 K Vinatieri, Adam NEP 7 DF Baltimore DEF BAL 3 DF New England DEF NEP 7
  6. Michele Tafoya's Replacement

    Sam Ryan looks like a female impersonator. Suzy Kolber looks likes she aged a decade during the off-season. Lisa Guerrero looks like a skank-ho. Melissa Stark was among the best, but with her it seemed like she got the job because of nepotism (given that there were/are at least two other people with her last name in prominant positions in the ESPN/ABC family).
  7. Snyder cheering

    what's the over/under on the length of time it will take before a clip of that because someone's avatar?
  8. 27,604 posts...

    That's good--because you didn't need to pay to use the message boards.
  9. Off Topic

    Well, I wanted the Rams to win and was playing against Warner in my local. I stand by my comment that he did the right thing. :oldjohnelwaygrin:
  10. Off Topic

    I actually thought it was a good idea to not spike the ball. It's not Warner's fault that his guy jumped.
  11. The winner is: Sunysteelfly76 – 6 (poor RR would have won if Detroit would not have been so inept as to miss a PAT). Congratulations to Suny! PM's to follow.
  12. On 4th and 9 from about the CHI 20, the Lions go for it and Harrington throws another INT Suny is starting to look good here as the Lions apparently will not attempt any fg's nor apparently will they score any more TDs.
  13. so--it comes down to this--with 12 minutes left, Chicago is winning 38-6: Sunysteelfly76 – 6 Rocknrobn26 – 7 Daffy’s Nightmare – 9 Detroit has the ball at CHI's 43 or so.
  14. yep--I am watching the situation closely

  16. Does this make you happy?

    and also the most accurate
  17. link (first read the part about how Pujols should win the NL MVP and then continue reading to the part I quoted above)
  18. Javon Walker's Injury

    They said he was questionable to return. That was all.
  19. Rams are getting killed

    Replace the name in parentheses with Bulger and your statement is dead-on. Bulger made a bad pass and it was not Bruce's fault that it got picked off.
