| Movie/TV Board|| Tried watching Elysium - LeonPhelps on 12/4/13 at 1:07 pm|
Am I the only one that sided with the citizens of Elysium and not the illegals trying to break into their private property and take what isn't theirs? I wanted Matt Damon to fail so badly.
ETA: That is not a spoiler as that was the premise in the trailer. ...
| More Sports Board|| The House That Manning Built - LeonPhelps on 10/17/13 at 9:06 am|
This video is awesome, to me anyway as a huge Peyton Manning fan that changed allegiance from the Colts to the Broncos when he changed teams. It is a fan made video that appears to start with NBC's promotional video for the Broncos/Colts game and then adds to it.
| More Sports Board|| Broncos offensive line continues to be decimated - 4 starters injured - LeonPhelps on 10/14/13 at 11:51 am|
Broncos lost their first and second team centers for the year in training camp, forcing them to move a backup guard over to center. That guard had never played center before in his life (2 bad snaps yesterday led to turnovers, incidentally).
Then the Broncos lost their starting All-Pro left tack...
| More Sports Board|| Video breaking down Peyton's game-tying drive against Cowboys late in 4th - LeonPhelps on 10/9/13 at 10:19 am|
Down 48-41, Peyton led the Broncos down the field on a 9 play, 73 yard drive spanning 4 minutes and 40 seconds. Peyton was 5 for 5 on the drive, and this video breaks down all 5 completions.
| More Sports Board|| NFL 2013 season-to-date total QBR as of today - LeonPhelps on 10/7/13 at 9:39 pm|
Peyton is dominating it and should break his own record by year-end. Brees has been moving up the list and should easily overtake Rivers by year-end. I think this metric gives Luck the credit he deserves as he is playing exceptional football without the gaudy stats to show for it (not one 300 yard...

I started a thread last week on the More Sports board to track Peyton Manning's awesome season throughout the year. My goal was to update it each week similar to the running thread on Les Miles's career stats on the Tiger Rant board. When I updated the original post in the thread just now to refle...
| Movie/TV Board|| Just tried to watch The Long Ranger (spoilers) - LeonPhelps on 10/4/13 at 6:36 pm|
I made it through 1.5 of the 2.5 total hours this terrible movie spans. When The Long Ranger knocks out Tonto when Tonto is about to kill the main bad guy that clearly and unequivocally needs to die, I shut it off immediately. Am I missing anything by not watching the last hour? Hard to imagine t...

| More Sports Board|| Peyton Manning had 5 incompletions last night-all 5 were drops - & other tidbits - LeonPhelps on 9/24/13 at 10:10 am|
He hit the receiver in the hands all 37 attempts. 5 times the receiver dropped the ball. He should have completed 100% of his passes, which is hard to do against air, much less an NFL defense.
Depending on how the stats guy count the drops last night (3 drops were undoubtedly just whiffs, 2 o...
| Tiger Rant|| Mingo up for Rookie of the Week - 3rd week in a row for a former Tiger - LeonPhelps on 9/24/13 at 9:14 am|
Barkevious Mingo is up for Rookie of the Week on NFL.com. Mathieu was up for it last week and Eric Reid was nominated in week 1. LSU rookies are 3 for 3 so far this year in terms of nominations but have yet to win. Vote here.

I cannot stand this show. The national guys are a million times more entertaining and knowledgeable. I thought Sports Today ended at 1:00. Why is it still on? I want to hear SVP & Rusillo but for some reason am still getting this terrible local show on my radio....

Going back to 2000, every QB he had for at least 3 years who started was drafted to the NFL with the lone exception of Marcus Randall. That list includes the following in order:
- Rohan Davey - 3rd round draft pick
- Matt Mauck - won national championship, 7th rd
- Jamarcus Russell - 1st overa...

Rarely does Hollywood ever make the good guy president a Republican. However, I can say with 95% certainty that the president in Independence Day was Republican. How? Simple, really.
Will Smith's girlfriend told the president's wife that she "voted for the other guy." 95% of black people vote...

I think it should be like Fight Club. First rule is to never discuss Fight Club. I think personal records and awards should be the same. Yes, these guys obviously want the personal records and awards, but the main goal is the team and the focus should be exclusively the team. Take a cue from Man...

Peterson not only did not win it, he did not even get second. His reasoning is exactly what I have been saying regarding why not only Manning should win this year but why a QB should win every year until the end of time.
| More Sports Board|| SB Nation bloggers vote on NFL Awards for 2012 - LeonPhelps on 12/27/12 at 3:43 pm|
I would say they got everything right except for rookie of the year. The success of Kirk Cousins negates a lot of what RG3 did. The Shanahans should get most of that credit. Luck or Wilson should have gotten it. Everything else was dead on.

He has the top QBR right now (100% accurate in predicting MVP thus far) and, more importantly, a great story (missed entire year/4 neck surgeries/cut by old team/brand new team that struggled to 8-8 in previous year,etc.). Unless there is a total collapse the last 4 games, the MVP is his to lose. ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Actor that seems to be the most different in real life than on screen - LeonPhelps on 11/27/12 at 10:27 am|
It has to be Harrison Ford. He seems so incredibly uncomfortable and weird in any interview, bordering on angry that he has to be there. I thought it was simply because he is old now and has gotten really grumpy in his old age. But then I saw this interview he did with David Letterman in 1982:

Bowe said, "It's Peyton Manning. Who wouldn't want a pictur...

I went to the Mall of Louisiana last night to find the 2000's edition of Trivial Pursuit, but I could not find that board game store they had as recently as last year. I had not been to the mall since before last Christmas. Is that store no longer in the Mall or did I just miss it somehow?

He already locked up greatest NFL QB of all-time, but people feared his skills had diminished. Nope! Still the best QB in the league today. 19 of 26 for 253 yards and 2 td's against the best defense against the pass last year. Outsmarted Dick Lebeau (as he does every D Coordinator) and proved th...
