"Chip on their shoulder" strikes again - jim712 on 2/7/16 at 4:55 pm
Didn't take long. Hands down one of the most annoying sports cliches ever. In this case, being stupid and lazy with the commentary didn't even make sense. The Panthers, worshiped by many everywhere, are playing with a chip on their shoulder? Please....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)

What's the deal with rivals? - jim712 on 2/3/16 at 5:04 pm
Has LSU listed with no 5 stars https://n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2016. We're sixth. Great class but I thought it was going to be special. Bama (aaarrgghhh) once again reeled in 5 5 stars and has the #1 class. Nothing's really changed....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
Channels 2 and 9 (CBS and ABC): conspiracy? - jim712 on 1/24/16 at 9:32 am
Just curious. I used to live in Shenandoah and regardless of the digital antenna I tried (and I tried five of them) I could virtually never pick up 2 or 9. Many other small stations were clear as a bell including three PBS channels. Fox and NBC were fine. I then moved out here to Baker. Same pr...

The Man Who Wasn't There (Coen Brothers) - jim712 on 1/8/16 at 4:41 pm
I think this is actually their best film. A sort of postmodern film noir. If you like their stuff, you've got to see this one. A-list actors, quirky script, amazing black and white cinematography. When I think of most of the crap that's playing today at my local cineplex, this movie reminds me o...

re: Recent expressions used in sports that drive you nuts - jim712 on 1/2/16 at 11:57 pm
Really guys? There is one that has grated on me for years and it has only gotten worse. In fact, I've started counting them on Saturdays: he had "a chip on his shoulder" or they play like they have "a chip on their shoulder". Hate it hate it.
