  10. Attn Eagle Fans - Need More Owners

    Unbelievable as it may seem, I must admit wholeheartedly with what Sarge said. In fact, it should be amplified. Free Leagues, Birds, and their fans, all suck.
  11. looking for a name.....

    2 division names for work teams? hmmmm..... Slackers Brown-Nosers
  12. What kinds of mischief have you pulled?

    Relative #1 I must've been about 10 yrs old. Hated that my Grandpa smoked cigarettes. So I bought some cigarette loads from a novelty store & sabotaged one of his camels in the pack. Waited 3+ hours for that baby to go off. No good. Went back to my house. My grandparents went out for a fancy dinner with another business associate & wife. Dessert came, butt was lit up & POW! Heard that my Grandmother jumped under the table. Boy, did I get it and get it good! Relative #2 I used to set up a firecracker in a pile of fresh dog sh*t while walking my dog (pre pooper scooper days). Then sometime later, maybe 10 minutes, maybe 2 hours (it didn't matter), I'd set my brother up by lighting up the delayed fuse and calling him over. There'd always be a convenient tree for me to duck behind just as the sh*t went flying. Co-worker My co-workers computer had an anti-glare screen that fit over his normal monitor screen (you know, the type that had its own top, sides & bottom that fit like a glove over the existing screen). I had taken it off, got a piece of black vinal from a computer binder and cut it to fit the dimensions of the anti-glare screen. Slapped it back on. Co-worker turned computer on, off and on again, made sure everything was plugged in, checked that the green indicator light of the moitor was on. He called IT (who knew about the joke). They told him that it was his fault and that it would be indicated on some kind of report. By the time he found out the problem, he wanted to kill anyone and everyone who came by his office.
  13. Hakim already booted

    http://story.scout.com/a.z?s=93&p=2&c=388391 BREAKING NEWS: Hakim Headed to Saints Hakim backed out of his deal with the Chiefs. By Nick Athan Publisher Date: Jun 17, 2005 Warpaint Illustrated has learned that wide receiver Az-Zahir Hakim has decided to sign a contract with the New Orleans Saints. The deal could be announced as soon as today. Late this morning Warpaint Illustrated was tipped off that the deal went south. According to our source, Hakim briskly left town and indicated that he would not be coming to Kansas City after contract talks failed to yield a long term deal that he had hoped to get from the Chiefs. Apparently Hakim and his agent hit a snag in those understood contract talks. Both Hakim and his agent left town after the talks broke off with the Chiefs. His agent Bruce Tolner quickly called the Saints and they remained interested in acquiring the former Detroit Lions receiver. This was an unusual change of heart for Hakim who professed his love for the Chiefs organization and Head Coach Dick Vermeil. He clearly wanted to play for them two days ago. But in the NFL money talks and the two sides could not reach an agreement on the terms of the contract. Though Hakim was not expected to be a starter; the team is looking for a veteran receiver to compete for the #3 position. According to our source at Arrowhead, the decision for Hakim to sign with the Saints was the direct result of a conversation between Hakim and Vermeil. Both felt that the Saints would give him a better long term situation then playing just one-year in Kansas City with no guarantees of a long term contract. After that conversation, the Chiefs and Hakim agreed to part ways mutually. With this development, Kansas City might turn its attention back to former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell or the Seahwaks Koren Robinson. Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated for more news from training camp on this developing story.
  14. Which Player, Which Game

    Was originally thinking football, but my thoughts drifted to baseball. I guess Reggie Jackson in the 1977 3HR World Series game on 3 consecutive swings vs. the Dodgers would do it for me. I also thought of either Mike Eruzione or Jim Craig in the USA Hockey Defeat of the Ruskies in 1980.
