My Aunt just called me and told me that my Grandma just passed away about 2 hours ago. She was 89 years old. She was the last Grandparent I had. I'm 39, so I guess I'm lucky to have had her in my life for as long as I did. This sucks. RIP Mamaw....

The temperature was somewhere near -30 with wind chills getting to somewhere around -60. The hottest place I've been had to be Albania in 1999. The temperature was 1...

Why is it that all the Cowboys fans can say when you try and talk to them about last nights game is "Yeah, but we got 5 rings and ya'll only have 1." Wasn't their last SB win over 20 years ago? If people are gonna bring up the past that way then why don't Browns fans talk about the 8 league champion...

Have any of you seen mainstream media questioning the officiating of the game yet? I haven't, all I've seen so far is just a bunch of stroking Brady's ego. I guess it's just like the TV announcers, if they try and raise the red flag they'll conveniently get shown the door.
It's a conspiracy M...

No big deal. Just your typical, everyday NFC South game. Close, crazy, sloppy and down to the last play. Who would expect anything otherwise? And a helluva cardiac comeback by the boys in Black and Gold.

It's just too damn early in the season for this much stress. But what else would we expect from a Saints/Falcons game. It was an all around good performance on all sides of the ball. My biggest concerns are cleaning up special teams errors and working a little on run blocking. ...

I'm just now getting around to watching the CST coverage on the Raiders game. I searched to see if anything was posted about it. I'm pretty impressed so far by Stinchcomb's analysis. He explains what's going on pretty well. Doesn't keep talking while the Ref is calling the penalties and hasn't said ...

My favorite beer is Kilkenny Cream Ale, but they don't sell it in the Country. So I've tried finding other Cream Ales available here. The only one I have tried is Boddington's and didn't like it so much. It was too light and didn't really have good flavor. Do any of ya'll have recommendations of Cre...

Is the Tour de France the hardest individual sporting event to win? I think so. I can't think of any other event that puts the human body through as much torture as riding the Tour. This year was over 2100 miles long riden in 24 days. That's including 3 rest days. I can't imagine completing one stag...
