  1. sons of anarchy

    I'm still in the middle of season 2 on DVD, so I'm just going to be recording to watch later. but this is quickly becoming one of my favorite TV shows. if you think you might be interested, get that DVR humming!
  2. Favorite Stout - Beer

    Great Divide's Yetis are the top of the heap for me. they do the imperial stout thing better than anyone else I've come across. speaking of Yetis, there's a local Indian restaurant/brewpub called Yak and Yeti that brews and serves a really nice chai milk stout.
  3. Fav IPA beer

    firestone's union jack has been one that I have really loved since I tried it. tonight I had their "wookey jack" black rye IPA and it is truly one of the best beers I've had in a long time.
  4. Ed Reed

    the two players I was most happy for yesterday were Ed Reed and Anquan Boldin. Reed in particular, because IMO he is the best safety to play the game. every time I watch him I remember and rue the day the broncos drafted Ashley Lelie while Ed was still on the board.
  5. Would you be upset if your wife had coffee with a stranger?

    yeah, I guess I feel if yer spouse isn't trustworthy, then they aren't worth being with long term. and maybe the sooner you find that out the better. if you're with a wh0re who you somehow keep from cheating only by zealously being up her butt all the time (figuratively, matt), then that seems like a rather hollow "victory".
  6. Toxic Reasons - The Band

    often you can find out-of-print stuff in mp3 format by doing a google search limited to blogs.
  7. Respect for those who eschew the pink

    I don't really have any major issue with the komen foundation, or any other group involved in cancer funding, or "awareness", or any of that. bottom line is I am sick of all this for two reasons. 1) I just don't care for pink and the unis are hideous, and 2) all this "awareness" is primarily just a marketing ploy hucksters are using to sell pink chit and pander to a particular demographic. certainly that is how the NFL involvement strikes me, wrapping themselves in pink to show how awesome and "aware" they are. so much of marketing and PR these days is about blowing smoke up peoples' butts.
  8. Would you be upset if your wife had coffee with a stranger?

    don't get involved. if he wants to look at the phone records, he should. the fact that she lied about who "friended" who is mildly concerning. it sure sounds like nothing happened and it was innocent, but the little lies on her part and the trust issues on his part seem to be the real issue.
  9. who is man enough to bench Julio Jones this week

    I think you'd be a fool to view the home/road thing as anything but a statistical anomaly. that said, Julio has been pretty disappointing overall from a FF perspective, at least with respect to consistency. it's not inconceivable that a team might have 2 or 3 better options at WR.
  10. This forum

    IMO the slide started when they started trying to police whole broad topics rather than actual objectionable behavior. then they enforced it sporadically, inconsistently, and haphazardly -- "seagull moderation" if you will ('the seagull moderator flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything then flies off again leaving a big mess behind'). that started causing resentment among many posters, and one by one many of them started going out in a blaze of idiocy in "protest". others got annoyed and less interested as a result, either annoyed with the moderation, or annoyed with the people who push the moderators. the pattern keeps repeating itself in a continual downward spiral. I would say that all they really accomplished by banning topics was to dumb down the discussion of those topics and turn the whole place into a grown-up romper room. like many others, I am pretty bummed about that because I consider a lot of the old huddlers good friends and I miss what we used to have here.
  11. it's Orton AND Tebow time!

    as a broncos fan I find this terribly entertaining.
  12. 40th Anniversary

  13. Respect for those who eschew the pink

    good cause? maybe so but it's overkill. are they going to do it for what seems like half the season like they did last year? good grief, couldn't they just do one week. I guess the thing about it that bugs me a little bit is that there are a lot of other kinds of cancer out there that don't receive nearly the amount of funding or attention. prostate cancer is the easy one to bring up, because it impacts about as many men as breast cancer affects women and receives zero attention. but lung cancer kills like 5 times as many people as breast cancer, and receives a fraction of the funding (especially on a per death basis).
  14. White wide receivers

    meh, all those pigmentally-challenged people look the same.
  15. White wide receivers

    one of my favorite players growing up, steve watson
  16. Sean Payton granted conjugal visit

    would you prefer it that payton be banned indefinitely as williams is so he can get permission to go to all the saints games? SP is still the head coach of the team. it does not surprise nor confuse me in the least that they would see the need for a stricter, more attentive enforcement of a finite suspension where the person maintains their title and position than the more punitive, open-ended ban directed at williams. obviously, the league could have responded to payton's request with a simple, "nope, you're suspended". instead they responded graciously. I would try and view it that way rather than seeing it, like everything else, through the prism of some sort of vendetta against your team.
  17. What happened?

    one direct consequence of the idiotic, inconsistent administration of this forum is that pretty much any and every thread starts to go downhill almost immediately.
  18. Sean Payton granted conjugal visit

    so the league grants them a one-time exception to the terms of their suspension, and that too becomes something else to complain about.
  19. White wide receivers

    hakeem nicks must be an oreo then
  20. Vote for the 2012 Rock n Roll HOF Inductees

    I could bring myself to vote for Joan Jett, Kraftwerk, and Public Enemy. Rush maybe deserves it but I hate them. I did vote for kraftwerk, but if they're going for krautrock, Can would be a better choice. more "rock and roll" and also arguably more influential. I think they're getting to the point with this HOF that they just feel like they have to induct people every year and some of the new inductees are wartering down the overall pool. that said, in addition to Can, they need to add don van vliet/captain beefheart. and it's probably getting to be about time for husker du, sonic youth, the pixies...
  21. What the hell is wrong with kids?

    they must be paying that attorney out the ass to pooh-poo these accusations.
  22. What the hell is wrong with kids?

    oh man, how are the frat boys keeping a straight face during this?
  23. Very cool time lapse

  24. it's Orton AND Tebow time!

    well it's even more difficult, IMO, because while the winner/intangibles side of that argument is an easy win for tebow, the "ability" argument is actually more nuanced than a lot of people will recognize. drop-back passing ability, sure, edge sanchez. but you gotta keep in mind that last year, behind orton, the broncos were in the bottom third of teams in the league in rushing offense. once tebow took over they were #1. he opens up a teams entire running game. now you can cue up the arguments about how you can't win NFL championships with a 1980s-era Big-8 offense, particularly not in this pass-dominated era. and ultimately I agree with that. but I would argue you're more likely to win that way than you are with a chitty drop-back QB like orton or sanchez. last season with the broncos demonstrates that pretty well I think.
  25. it's Orton AND Tebow time!

    I don't necessarily dispute any of those criticisms of tebow, but here they are non sequitur. the statement was made about what desperate straits you'd be in down 6 late in a game with tebow as your QB, and I was just pointing to history to say that maybe that's not so bad a situation to be after all. I think the biggest problem with tebow as your QB against a good team is being in the position late in the game where you're ONLY down 6.
