I haven't seen this mentioned before.
Not only did Chris Davis return the kick for the game winning touchdown, he also was the player that knocked Yeldon out of bounds with 1 second left on the clock that set up the field goal attempt.

Still the case today? Just checking....

As I mentioned before, I am still forming my opinion on the drug legalization issue. However, it occurs to me that the criminalization of certain drugs gives the State ALOT of power over citizens through home and vehicle searches, detainments, etc. Why would the Statists who run the Federal govern...
| Outdoor Board|| Listening to old country music tonight fellas - weagle99 on 2/25/14 at 9:56 pm|
Country music from the early 1980's reminds me of getting up early and dog hunting with my Dad. Stop by Hardees for a biscuit and then down to the club in his '84 K10 in the dark.
Nothing like hearing dogs running a deer through the swamp in the morning. What a great childhood.

This band seems to get some grief from people, but much of their work is just as good as the 3 'big' hits they had on Oracular Spectacular. To me they are one of those bands that makes music that gets better after several listens.
The latest album was dumped on somewhat but 'Alien Days' is a dam...

The rhetoric leads one to believe Republicans and Democrats differ significantly on economic issues, however the actions do not support this. Both parties work to ensure Federal money flows to their constituencies, and neither party has any interest in real tax reform. Barring a collapse neither p...
