  2. The Feds from Rochester Michigan? I have some time, tell me some good shtick to do and I’ll go over to his team and freak them out.
  3. She looked nice in her bathrobe at the draft last night.
  4. Eli is at the end of the rope. He is lucky to be in the league....
  5. #40 Theme from A Summer Place - Percy Faith & His Orchestra "Theme from A Summer Place" is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film as an instrumental by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a secondary love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue. Following its initial film appearance, the theme has been recorded by many artists in both instrumental and vocal versions, and has also appeared in a number of subsequent films and television programs. The best-known cover version of the theme is an instrumental version by Percy Faith and his orchestra that was a Number One hit for nine weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1960. Percy Faith recorded the most popular version of the theme, an instrumental orchestral arrangement, at the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City. It was released in September 1959 as a single on Columbia Records, credited to "Percy Faith and his Orchestra," prior to the November 1959 release of the film A Summer Place. The single was not an immediate hit and did not enter the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart until mid-January 1960, finally reaching #1 six weeks later on February 22, 1960. It went on to set an at-the-time record of nine consecutive weeks at #1, a record which would not be broken until 1977, when "You Light Up My Life" spent ten weeks at #1. (Elvis Presley's double-sided hit "Don't Be Cruel/ Hound Dog" remained at #1 for 11 weeks in 1956 prior to the 1958 creation of the Hot 100 chart; The Beatles' "Hey Jude" tied, but did not break, the nine-week record in 1968.) It remains the longest-running #1 instrumental in the history of the chart. Billboard ranked Faith's version as the Number One song for 1960. The Faith version reached #2 in the UK. It was also a #1 hit in Italy under the title "Scandalo Al Sole." Faith won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1961 for his recording. This was the first movie theme and the first instrumental to win a Record of the Year Grammy. Faith re-recorded the song twice: first, in 1969, as a female choral version, then, in 1976, as a disco version titled "Summer Place '76." In 2008, Faith's original version was ranked at #18 on Billboard's top 100 songs during the first 50 years of the Hot 100 chart. The Billboard Book of Number One Hits called it "the most successful instrumental single of the rock era." As seen in National Lampoon's Animal House
  6. The build up to her releasing anything is always genius. She (her team) markets on a different level than anyone else.
  7. Small steps do not always lead towards something negative though. Sometimes they lead to positive progress for society. Hard to ever advance without ever trying because some are too scared. I keep seeing the argument for not doing something is because of the negative things that might happen. It's true, there could be negatives but that doesn't mean it's going to be permanent. Also, sometimes those negatives can be outweighed by the positives. I guess my point is, are we not willing to try anything just out of fear it might not work the way it's suppose to? I don't think that's a good enough reason not to discuss things and possibly try it out. Nothing would ever get done if we didn't do anything out of fear it may not work.
  8. Casual Giants fan here, brother is a diehard: I don't give that theory much weight at all.
  9. We have like $55m in cap space next year without any cuts. They will spend again, so I wouldn't expect any comp picks.
  10. My favorite mini-callback was “On your left” when Falcon is just about to show up with the rest of the vanished. Just perfect IMO.
  11. @psychobillies, did the theater fill up? I had seen that the first evening show at your Regal (6:40, I think?) was sold out when I looked earlier in the afternoon. But there were five other screens showing Endgame at your Regal last night, and a lot more Thursday evening showings that still weren't showing as "sold out" as of ~1:30 p.m. yesterday. I don't know if they were 90% full with just a few singles scattered up close, or if they were like 50% full with still a few four-in-a-rows available.
  12. Interesting take this morning on NFL Network saying Jones at #6 seemed like it was a behind the scenes powerplay from the Manning Family flexing their "royal status". Coach Cutcliff at Duke is very much in the Manning world and all that. How much do you buy it?
  13. I can’t believe there are people who haven’t watched this show yet. It’s so dang good.
  14. This isn't about whether it's going to happen or not, it's about whether it's possible or not. It was designed to be amended as time goes by and our country changes. This is why we have certain processes in place. Do you go through life thinking this way all the time?
  15. You can talk me into each safety except Rapp. Since speed's so important to Dorsey I doubt he's on the radar anyway. I think there's a fall-off after the first three CB's and would rank Mullen #4. I like Love, but because of his lack of speed coupled with his other physical traits I doubt he's on Dorsey's radar this early. I feel better about an under developed CB from Kentucky than I do one from Michigan State. If you don't develop under Dantonio that's a red flag to me. But, most importantly... ...and.
  16. I have the 2x month self injections for psoriasis too. Mine is Cosentyx. Not quite symptom free but none visible with clothes on so close enough I guess.
  17. Texans has such a glaring need they had to know someone would try to jump them. It also really helps that there was so many surprise early picks too.
  18. Anonymous call to police last night to do a wellness check on Crystal. She was home and ok, Tyreek wasn’t there.
  19. Do we do hand photos for @Otis and **** pic’s for @Arizona Ron ?
  20. In a defensive first round draft, the Bears got the best of it in Khalil Mack.
  21. It's a lot worse for many reasons. If I recall AP never denied it and in fact almost seemed like the last person to know you are not supposed to discipline your kid like that. In this case we got a repeat offender, who apparently was far more abusive then just taking a switch to his child, who fully knows he did something wrong to the point he conspired to hide the crime and the cherry on top is that he continues to threaten the person he beat and choked years ago even after going through treatment and counseling. I don't think he ever plays again but with 1 or 2 years of of PR and time along with game changing talent I won't say it's impossible if he gets back in the league but we always discuss the impact of video and we might have just got presented something worse then video. In the annals of NFL scumbag history this might play worse to the public persona then anyone other then Rae Carruth. I don't think even a murderer like Aaron Hernandez was this reviled. I'm trying to picture how a team can sale signing him in a year or two and really struggling to do so.
