I don't know all of the details but it seems he had a heart attack late last week and was finally taken off life support today.
He didn't see the field very much, but was one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet.
Prayers to the Puckett family....

I'm tv and gaming console illiterate. Just today got an hdmi cable to go from xbox to tv. What is the highest resolution the xbox will go? Or does it depend on the tv?

Everytime my son plays a football game on his 360 it freezes every few seconds making the game unplayable. No other game does this. He plays online COD with no lag whatsoever. And it happens even during practice sessions and other times when modem power etc. shouldn't be an issue.
Any ideas on how...

One of my favorite aspects of NCAA football games is the offseason recruiting. Sometimes I won't even play the games; I'll just take a low ranked team and try to recruit their way to the top. Mind you, my last 2 systems were a playstation (original) and a Wii (didn't play any football games on the...

So my son is playing soccer for the first time this year. I played one year when I was about 5 but have since never watched nor played. So it's easy to see that I have very little knowledge of the game. Couple of basic questions:
1. When do you get to do a corner kick?
2. What has to happen for ...

Bottom molar needs root canal. But that may end costing a few hundred bucks since my dental insurance is a POS. I'd just assume have it taken out. How bad is it? Heal up pretty quickly?

I'm sick of not being able to by a decent hat for my son bc of all of the douchebag flatbillers. It may be the worst trend I've experienced during my lifetime. Worse that Kriss Kross's backwards pants. Worse that Hammer pants. Even worse that pants loosely situated inferior to the buttocks.
