Today was a great day to be a saints fan living in Atlanta. I had an uncontrollable smirk all day long and there was little to no traffic because I guess everyone skipped work and school. Best Monday in a long time. ...

I understand what you're saying, but using the NFL as a medium is more about the amount of eyes that will see the product. It's all about brand recognition. ...

re: Game of Thrones Complete Series Re-Watch Thread - porter8 on 7/3/16 at 2:57 pm
I started the re watch last night. It is definitely great to watch again just for the foreshadowing. One small example... In a particularly awkward scene, after Viserys undresses a very uncomfortable Dany, the dragon queen proceeds to step stoicly into a bath that her servant says is too hot...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
