I just started watching this. Does anyone else crack up when the Disney logo is played during the end credits after seeing drugs, sex, cursing, etc. I thought I was watching an HBO show at first before remembering it aired on ESPN. "Piss man's coming"....

This is mainly based on foreign players getting in but there are others like the Red Hat Ladies team. Ginobli doesn't have the numbers. One All-Star game and a career bench player but he will get in due to his work with Argentina. ...

The Mariners haven't made the playoffs since 2001. They wasted top draft picks on players like Clement that haven't amounted to anything. They finally got within a game of being 500% and proceed to loose the next 5 games in blow out fashion. What do you do when your team sucks like this?...

This actually wasn't that bad. Decent cast too. The special effects of the monkey alien sure as hell don't hold up though. ...

BJ Armstrong was picked by the Raptors but refused to report so he was shipped to the Warriors. Gerald Wallace was left available and was selected by the Bobcats. Did BJ have a horrible contract the Bulls were trying to get out of? Usually teams leave players with albatross contracts they hope someo...

Does anyone know the names in contention for franchises before they ultimately were named what they are today? I know the Bobcats were almost the Charlotte Flight and Charlotte Dragons. The Pelicans were almost Swamp Dogs and Rogarou.

While awful, I still have feelings of nostalgia for this. Outside of a few scenes, it has nothing to do with the game. That said, Haskins was a perfect Mario. :lol:...

I just finished Kurt's bio and while I always knew Courtney was screwed up in the head I never knew to what extent. After police took away his body, she found a piece of his skull with hair on it and washed it with shampoo and kept it as a keepsake. At the wake, she pulled down the pants on the corp...

I know a lot of grown men get bashed for wearing jerseys (I'm not one of them). However, I just felt foolish wearing one once I turned 20. I still wear baseball jerseys though. If I put on a basketball jersey, I feel like I come off as a wanker. Do you still wear jerseys?...

I recently stopped working as a GED teacher for adults who have dropped out of school. The program is funded by grants and the more heads they have, the more money they get. At times, the program is more concerned with them just coming to class instead of if they are actually learning. They have to ...
