  1. What's Going On (Marvin Gaye) - always a big Marvin Gaye fan. Loved the arrangement that the entire album blended into one continuous song.

     

    That's the Way of the World (Earth, Wind & Fire) - Really began to enjoy listening to music when this came out in the seventies.

     

    Gratitude (Earth, Wind & Fire) - One of the better live albums. Although some songs were not live.

     

    Songs in the Key of Life (Stevie Wonder) - Definitely ahead of his time. His newer music doesn't come close to this double album classic.

    Thriller (Michael Jackson) - Enjoyed the CD. Made the list mainly because of the topic title "Life Defining." Seven top ten singles and no other album/CD has ever come close to over 100 million sales.


  2. Have you all seen his Papa Johns commercial :tup: Guy is a crack up

     

    Bettis- "Peyton is that you?" (Peyton in a refs uniform and doing the coin flip)

    Peyton - "man's gotta work"

     

    Peyton -" He said heads"

    Bettis - "man not again I said Tails"

    Peyton -" I know what I heard"

     

    :wacko:

     

    Peyton is probably the best when it comes to commercials, in terms of athletes. I loved his MasterCard commercials.


  3. Well, I got the projector, but, no screen yet. Just projecting off of the cinder block wall, the quality is pretty amazing. I can't wait for the rest of it to show up.

     

    Sounds pretty cool. Probably have to drag you out kicking and screaming one it is all setup.


  4. Robinson spent a lot of the season as the number two while Austin was injured. He enjoyed a lot of success while teams concentrated on Bryant and Witten, and the emergence of Murray. Can he fit as the Cowboys #3 WR? Absolutely. The Cowboys run a lot of 3 receiver sets and they have not had a guy like Austin/Bryant/Witten/Robinson in a long, long time. Will he stay? I think so because he knows the system and even as the "#3" he had a very good season and was money in the red zone. JJones will find a way to pay.

     

    Robinson spent two years in Atlanta after being drafted in 2007. He went to St Louis after that for two years. He started in 11 games last season in STL but only recorded 34 receptions, 344 yards and 2 TDs.


  5. Not sure it had alot to do with yds and scoring this season but when did people stop tackling? Seems like every defender on the field is trying to blow guys out of their shoes or strip the ball on nearly every play rather than wrapping up and tackling

     

    From what I have read, many teams do not allow full contact during practice. Too many injuries. That correlates to not practicing good tackling habits. Not to mention these guys know they are out for a paycheck. Each player is his own 'business enterprise" and they must protect the business.


  6. These guys were banging on her door for quite some time trying to get inside. It doesn't take a law degree or a full understanding of the local law to know these punks aren't the welcome wagon coming by with a knife checking to see if this new widow and her infant are gonna be ok living but themselves. And this was the second time in just a few days that the guy had come to her door. She was very fortunate to have the weapon because the headline would have been very different. Now, at the age of 18, she just have to deal with the mental trauma of losing her husband to cancer and then killing someone.

     

    In a very interesting twist, the dead guy's accomplice ran away after the shot was fired is now being charged with first-degree murder.

     

    Charges

    Authorities don't plan to file charges against an 18-year-old Oklahoma widow who fatally shot a New Year's Eve intruder at her house while she had a 911 dispatcher on the phone.

     

    However, the intruder's alleged accomplice has been charged with murder in connection with the death.

     

    Sarah McKinley was in her mobile home with her 3-month-old son on New Year's Eve in Blanchard, Okla., when Justin Martin, 24, broke in with a large hunting knife, NBC station KFOR reported.

     

    When she asked if she was allowed to shoot the intruder if he broke through the door, a 911 operator told her, "Well, you have to do whatever you can do to protect yourself ... I can't tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby."

     

    Oklahoma law allows the use of deadly force against intruders, and prosecutors said McKinley clearly acted in self-defense. According to court documents, Martin was holding a knife when he died.

     

    "Our initial review of the case doesn't indicate she violated the law in any way," Assistant District Attorney James Walters told The Oklahoman newspaper.

     

    Prosecutors have charged his alleged accomplice, 29-year-old Dustin Louis Stewart, with first-degree murder. According to authorities, Stewart was with Martin but ran away from McKinley's home after hearing the gunshots.

     

    "When you're engaged in a crime such as first-degree burglary and a death results from the events of that crime, you're subject to prosecution for it," Walters said.


  7. Dumb idea. It's funny that a league that hated fantasy football is now offering an award for best Fantasy Player. :wacko: It's all about money. Like many have said, holding it the night before the Super Bowl is just plain idiotic. Surprised they didn't make it the half time show. But I guess they couldn't sell separate tickets for that.

     

    And Alec Baldwin? I like the guy. He's funny and all, but with a league having more than it's share of criminals, Baldwin and his run-ins with the law shouldn't be the face of a league award show......or maybe he fits in perfectly.


  8. Financially speaking and long-term cap ramifications, the Colts would be smart to release him. Even if he passes a physical later on, with that type of injury, he is one hit away from being on IR again. It's a lot of money to risk on an injured and older player (36 next season). There is no guarantee that he will be able to perform up to $28million standards.


  9. Has there ever been any real discussion of changing the rule? Even though "it's always been that way" it used to always be a gazillion ties each year until they (the NCAA) came into the 21st century and instituted their version of overtime. (another topic altogether.)
