    Super Bowl XLV: Steelers vs. Packers!

    Go Packers. Wow that is unreal. I have never been to a pro football game, but wow that is beyond belief. I'm not sure I could enjoy the game if one had to part with that much money for the being there. And would you go by yourself. I suppose it depends on what one normally spends of...

    Brett Favre and the text messages

    Don Maddox, And where are we the public in the mix? I'm not a big believer in the idea of falsely bulding up a "sports hero", or ignoring what seems to be a truth. Still, the thread didn't start out with comments about the play against the Jets where he got out of the pocket, moved right...

    Brett Favre and the text messages

    Don Maddox, You don't think that sport or other celebs had some real misteps in the past (I would wager that by todays lense put in the past the behaviors would be worse 40+years ago--media and the market is no longer as allied in building up the hero worship biographyies of the past. That...

    Gridiron Help Needed

    Vinnie, I suppose that rules out the possibility of a cheerleader outfit for her as well.... My wife had an Emmit Smith jersey. She played and scored the stuff back in the early 1990's. Even wrote a program for the scoring, prior to much of that stuff coming out, I think. Alot easier now...

    Operation Typhoon pbem

    So long Brett! End of an era

    I saw the news confernce, he was great to watch. Gunslinger, who sometimes could carry it off. Sometimes, I would be saying why such a gamble when only down a few in the 3rd quarter......Loved it when he would share the competive spirit with the othersides D-line. Psycho, Where do you...

    Can anyone beat Ohio State?

    The team which plays them in the Nation Championship, can. And might. A lot of pressure. A question for you, should that team be Michigan? I think they had their chance, but........others would argue otherwise. Mike
