re: Smokey and the Bandit - Globetrotter747
My favorite line is when Justice and Junior get caught in the funeral procession. Junior says something about the guy having a lot of friends. Justice says, "If they had cremated the son of a bitch I would be kicking Mr. Bandit's arse around the Moon by now."...

The picture below is what's left of the grandstand that Bandit, Frog and Snowman drove past in the Cadillac at the end. [img]https://horsepowermemories.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/22a-grandstand-side.jpg?w=400&h=216[/img] [img]https://bublup-media-production.s3.amazonaws.com/RN-HIsWR22D6cNNHT0...

re: Smokey and the Bandit - Globetrotter747
Great movie. I used to live near Atlanta and have been to some of the filming locations. Such as: 1. The spot where Buford T. Justice kicked the guy in the ass. 2. The pond where Fred went for a swim. 3. Lakewood Speedway where Big & Little Enis gave Bandit the challenge and the movie en...

re: Does make-up give women an unfair advantage over men? - Globetrotter747
[quote]Does make-up give women an unfair advantage over men?[/quote] No. You're competing against other men for the affection of women. It's good for us that there are ways for women to make themselves look better artificially with make up, hair dye, boob jobs, etc. ...

re: Boomers and end of life care - Globetrotter747
Both of my parents died in 2020 when I was 41 and they were 62 and 64. My mother died first (in March) after a bout with cancer, but the end was pretty sudden and there was never a need for extended care. My dad died second (in May) due poor health related to his weight and alcohol abuse. The end ca...

[quote]Nah, its the speeders who weave around them. Blaming left lane riders is like blaming guns for violence.[/quote] No, it's not. Cruising in the left lane is against the law. That doesn't mean faster drivers should lose their minds over it and ride the bumper of a slow left lane driver or ...

re: Saban Coaching Tree - How successful would you rate it? - Globetrotter747
[quote]Belichick's tree hasn't translated to success after leaving him, whereas Parcells' tree has been pretty successful.[/quote] I wonder how much of coaching tree success is related to assistants who brought something to the table on their own rather than what they learned from the boss? Take...

re: Bama fans are you nervous about O’Brien? - Globetrotter747
[quote]I'm convinced at this point Saban could hire the popsicle man and have him on the Frank Broyles award watch in 2-3 years.[/quote] I think he could take a lot of good high school coaches and turn them into competent DC’s at the college level relatively quickly if he wanted to. Look, the sc...

re: Bama fans are you nervous about O’Brien? - Globetrotter747
[quote]O’Brien is the official name listed for the OC position. The offense is Saban’s.[/quote] I don’t think it’s Saban’s offense (like he developed it all as an offensive guru) so much as it’s just Alabama’s in the sense that they just try to keep the terminology consistent from one OC to the nex...
