|Aug-06-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Hey Travis,
Definitely C. Brewskis are the most important part of a football game, especially if you're watching the Bears.
If fact, I can think of only one alternative with a bigger capacity for goodies:
|Aug-06-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Oh yeah Phony you're talking about Yogi & BooBoo. Yogi always says when he's snatching people's picnic baskets, "I'm smarter than the average bear!" ; P|
|Aug-07-12|| ||WannaBe: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/olympi...|
See Section III (of the link below), I want to see that (rule) enforced.
|Aug-07-12|| ||I play the Fred: <Section III-Time Limit Each free throw attempt shall be made within 10 seconds after the ball has been placed at the disposal of the free-thrower.>|
That's fine <WB>, but who's out there breaking it? The only guy I can recall coming close was Karl Malone, and that was a maybe/maybe not situation. In Seattle, the fans used to count to ten when he was at the line trying to get that call. Problem was, they would start at <One> rather than <One-thousand-one>, so Malone was usually shooting between nine and ten seconds.
I can't think of a guy who exceeds eight seconds today, but I could easily be wrong about that.
|Aug-07-12|| ||Jim Bartle: The difference between basketball and soccer (football), of course, is that the clock is running when the goalie holds the ball in football but not when a player has the ball for a free throw. It shouldn't matter how long the goalie holds the ball, because the referee can just add the time to the end of the game, as he sort of ends the game when he decides to. That is, unless it's done just to give a rest to the other players on the team.|
The most hilarious guy for taking time on free throws was a big guy named Chris Dudley, who shot about 40%. He took a long time, then he somehow faked shooting it once as part of his motion before actually shooting. He drew dozens of lane violations. I think he once missed five in a row when there were three lane violations.
|Aug-07-12|| ||WannaBe: Bring back pigeon shooting, tired of seeing their sheeeet on my car.|
|Aug-07-12|| ||WannaBe: Watch the video, and listen to V. Scully (turn up the volumn =)|
|Aug-07-12|| ||WannaBe: Even more Useless Information Dept.
I liked #3 and #3A, here is the link to the box score for #3:
The info about the Upton brothers is interesting.
But! #5 is strickly for our gracious host, <Phony Benoni>, of course. =)
|Aug-08-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Another point about that Benoit save: they had a no-hitter going into the ninth.|
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: "We have all this technology and they don't use it because they say it would delay the game. Well, what was that we just saw?" |
Aw, what's Scully know about baseball? At least wait until you've seen a few games, Vin!
On the play, that's about the closest catch/no catch I've ever seen.
|Aug-08-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Hey Phony I was sitting in Lake Shore Drive traffic and my mind started to wander, and then it dawned on me, you could get a Lions Costume to wear to the lion games! I found these on Ebay and their relatively cheap! |
P.S. You may want to get a suit for your pal Jim Bartle. Check out below.
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: What is that, Travis? Seriously.
For me, better is this: http://www.google.com.pe/imgres?um=...
|Aug-08-12|| ||Travis Bickle: <Jim Bartle> Good thinking Jim! But I was thinking more along the lines of what if Phony really got into the game and started talking some major trash to the Bears players. You could use your Scarecrow mask to try and scare away Urlacher or Lance Briggs from blasting 'Ol Phony in the bleachers with a forearm! LOL!|
P.S. But alas Scarecrows only scare birds such as Seahawks, Falcons and Eagles. ; P
|Aug-08-12|| ||Travis Bickle: Phony here's a nice gift you could send Wannabe! If Da Wabbit is ever in Detroit you guys could go together to the game in style. Plus that axe may fight off a couple of Bears LOL!!|
P.S. The only problem is that Wannabe likes his libations and that might rust him up pretty good. ; P
|Aug-08-12|| ||WannaBe: Don't think I'd look good in tin. =))|
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Travis: Sorry, didn't recognize it as a scarecrow, my eyes went right to the rope.|
|Aug-08-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Travis> No, if it's a football game I'd want the metal suit for somebody a bit bigger. Like say Ton Timman.|
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Watched US vs. Australia Olympic basketball, pretty dull really. Unless it was on the break, the US just threw up threes most time down with no ball movement. 46 threes in 40 minutes. Seemed to me they did a lot of missing, until the fourth quarter, but they made 19, a good percentage.|
|Aug-08-12|| ||WannaBe: While watching the SF-StL game, this came up on the TV screen:|
Yogi's wife: "You were born in St. Louis, but played and managed in New York. If you should go before me, where would you like to be buried?"
Yogi: "Surprise me!"
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Reminds me of columnist Jim Murray's comment when Casey Stengel died: "God is getting an earful tonight."|
|Aug-08-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Finally watched the blinkin' Vin Scully highlight. Definitely looked like the ball bounced on the turf to me.|
But I have to agree with him that replays are quicker than rhubarbs. On the other hand, they're not nearly so much fun.
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: I thought he caught it!|
|Aug-08-12|| ||WannaBe: I thought he did not, because of the bounce, then on replay with close-up shots, the ball bounced in the webbing of the glove.|
<JB> You are right, that is the closest catch/no catch call.
<Phony Benoni>, this is for you: http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/fa...
|Aug-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: What's that link, a group photo of Matt Millen's draft picks?|
|Aug-09-12|| ||WannaBe: Ba-da-bam!!|
