Really, this was pretty foreseeable when they had to throw so much money at Brees and then Graham.
Not saying it wasn't necessary. That's a philosophical discussion with lots of angles. But it kind of made the eventual fall very likely if not inevitable.
Not sure how teams with other top tie...

Maybe so, but she was the only piece of arse he could pull, even with all his money and success. Hell, he couldn't even close the deal with times square sluts and ended up blowing Lt. Dan's hook up too.

Enjoyed tonight's episode. Especially liked that they showed a little guts in at least touching on other winter solstice/ Midwinter celebration figures. The Odin bit was fun and even Nick (the shoemaker?) was intresting.
Ending was a little hokey with the "travelling around giving 'hope'" bit. ...

I think from a sports perspective, St. Mike's is probably gonna benefit and maybe some of the public schools in the new school districts (Central & maybe Zachary?). Not sure about Catholic.
Of course, if the exodus from Redemptorist has been going on for awhile the befenit for these schools may ...

I have no problem with Elba as Bond. I think he could do a great job in the role.
The real question is - if SNL ever reprises the Jeopardy sketches, could he (actually someone playing him) take up the Connery mantle needling Trebek? ...

They need 8 or 9 more so you can label one for each day of the month. Heck that group wouldn't even get you through February at one a night.
Anyway, I'll say (number system goes 1-11 left to right for top row, 12-22 left to right for bottom row):
11, 2, 14, 18, 6, 3, then random....

Ended up getting X-men DOFP.
It was pretty good but a little bit needlessly convoluted, even for a time travel flick (which can be problematical even under the best efforts with all the different theories like the creation of alternate realities, etc.)
I think they took it maybe a step too f...

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
Of those listed, my preferred order is: X-Men DOFP, Edge of Tomorrow, the latest Thor, Maze Runner.

I know we'd all like Guardians. That's one we all saw in theaters. I was actually thinking of getting it anyway for a rematch.
Here are a few I don't think any of us have seen in some genres that I think would appeal to all three of us. But I don't know about the quality of the individual mov...

Just gonna be me and the kids (18&21) tonight so I figured I'd pick up Chinese and we'd watch a flick together.
I'm thinking maybe something sci-fi or comedy or maybe light adventure. I'd rule out (for the tastes of different ones of us) romances, war movies and probably cowboys and sports movie...

| More Sports Board|| ? for football historians - has 2nd half ever started where the 1st half ends? - Methuselah on 12/15/14 at 9:09 pm|
Not sure why this question popped into my head watching the Saints game tonight, but:
I wonder if anywhere in the long history of football has the rule ever been that the 2nd half would start where the 1st half ends in terms of possession, down and distance?
I kind of doubt it because in socce...
