  1. I hope all of you were standing during the Anthems yesterday
  2. This is an interesting article about the use of the Anthem at sporting events. I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I do think it's odd that we play the Anthem before every sporting event, but at the same time, it's tradition at this point. I'd be fine if they just resorted to only singing the Anthem before big time events like the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA/NHL Finals, etc. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/31/sports/football/colin-kaepernicks-anthem-protest-underlines-union-of-sports-and-patriotism.html?ref=sports&_r=0
  3. That's where I am on this too. I think he's gone about it the wrong way, but I don't fault someone for standing up (or sitting down in this case) for something they feel strongly about. It's his right as an American to be able to do something like this.
  4. Damn, I disappear for a while and you guys change the place
  5. I don't think beating good teams or bad teams really matters. You can only play the teams on your schedule. Sure, we were 0-3 against teams with winning records, but look who we lost to. Panthers (15-1), Patriots (12-4), and Jets (10-6). Those games were also all on the road, and those teams were a combined 20-4 at home. Also, take into account there were only 12 teams with winning records in the entire league.
  6. So this one is for ix, who just loves callers. Was listening to the Junkies on my way in this morning and they were taking calls. This is pretty much word for word what this guy said: "Kirk Cousins prepares for every football game like it's a football game." What the hell does that mean? I guess I'm glad he's not preparing for football games like they're baseball games. That would be weird.
  7. How Much Would You Pay For A New Year’s Eve Dinner At Times Square’s Olive Garden? Someone tell Zoony he better make his reservation now!
  8. I had some at my work Christmas party last week. Wasn't impressed either.
  9. I wouldn't expect anything less from you lol
  10. I'm still torn on the name. But ultimately, I just want the debate to end. Whether that means that name changes or stays, doesn't matter to me. It's just getting old listening to the same arguments over and over again. I've always been one that says if the name is going to change, then it should be a majority of Native Americans that want it to change, not a bunch of old white guys. If the Native Americans take issue with the name, then go ahead and change it.
  11. Probably. A new go to drink of mine is Crown Apple and Ginger Ale. Meant to try to mix the NYFTGA with the Crown Apple. It could possibly work.
  12. I tried some Not Your Father's Ginger Ale a couple weeks ago. Not bad, but very gingery. If you're not a ginger ale fan, you won't like it. There's a bar down here by me that had the Not Your Father's Orange Soda on tap 2 weeks ago. My brother tried it and said it wasn't bad. As for the Root "Beers", I think my favorite one is the Coney Island kind. Not as heavy as NYFRB.
  13. Thought I saw somewhere this is the first time since 2006 the WWE Title switched hands on RAW
  14. Heard this morning, we 1-18 in our last 19 road games. We're so due for a road win.
  15. Lol I don't disagree, but at least it makes sense with where they play.
  16. The Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana. So it does make sense.
  17. Saw they got a 2.15 rating on Monday night. Lowest since 97
  18. I noticed that yesterday when checking out the standings. It's crazy they they could win 67 games and still not win the conference.
  19. I was disappointed, but I can't say I was totally surprised by the outcome.
  20. I was a fan of the yellow pants at first, but I think I've over them now. They look fine with the burgundy jersey, but I don't like them with the white one.
  21. This will get you pumped for tonight!
  22. Damn it. So I'm the one slipping
