Watching Dances With Wolves tonight got me thinking: after a large buffalo hunt/harvest, how was the meat prepared for storage? I know the Plains Indians were efficient and inventive, and adept at surviving the wilds of America. I'm sure they had methods to protect their food, but I'm curious a...View Topic - Replies (2)

I was discussing this with a friend last night. Young, early 20s Shaquille was an unstoppable force, an outlier of strength and court awareness like the NBA hadn't seen from a big man in quite some time. A lot of people believe that the only reason he was able to lead the Magic to the finals is...View Topic - Replies (8)

It seems NFL GM's rarely trade player for player to fit needs, much more relying on draft picks to finalize deals. MLB and NBA do way more PFP trading...***I'd actually like to see a stat showing how much more if anyone has insight on the subject*** *** Yes, I know I could take the question ...

Do you all believe Mett would have eventually won the job from Lee in 2011? Just curious. I believe he should have been named the starter the minute he arrived, from a talent stand point. I just don't think he was mature mentally enough to handle the pressure. (Feels crazy to type the last sen...View Topic - Replies (5)

There was a bunch of talent on those teams the next two years. Vargas, hitting and pitching, would have been the best. And a first rounder after his jr year. LSU should also count him on their MLB tally. I think. He's had a good career....View Topic - Replies (10)

I like the movie for entertainment value, thought it was very well put together.

Any opinions on this? *I thought the movie was perfectly cast as well. Jessi...View Topic - Replies (12)

Did it ever address in the movie what came of Mary's real father? Did she have daddy issues? She always seemed to be fairly attracted to losers, and didn't want Farvra, who by all accounts was a keeper. Maybe the daddy issues were in reverse, meaning creepers could sense a void that needed filling,...View Topic - Replies (4)
