  1. Agreed. Reverse WRs in those trades & seems much more even.
  2. Annual rite of spring in Buffalo. On my 2nd attempt Sabres got #1 pick - so there's that
  3. I work for regional distributor who sells parts manufactured out of US-based HQ. We have over 70 global distributorships. 4 -5 wks ago a note cameo out from corporate suspending all international travel. Couple days ago annual (global) distributor meeting, scheduled for next week in US, was cancelled.
  4. Can't stay healthy for more than a week but will probably win Conn Smythe if Tampa picks him up. #Ryano'reilly
  5. Looks like only way to enjoy Sabres rest of year is to bet the over. Luckily I'm in Rochester where he's done hell of a job building us into a top level team. Unfortunately, Roch has very few prospects for Sabres.
  6. Certainly an impressive effort, but let's see them do it year after year like the Sabres!
  7. When was the last time you laughed so hard at a 'decent joke' you needed to wipe tears...or couldn't hear what people around you were saying?
  8. An Army copter crash was reported yesterday & I said to my wife 'if you can't trust military copters, can you really trust any?
  9. Joe had longtime affiliation with Rochester Red Wings (O's former Triple A team) & is known as "Mr Baseball" here. Couldn't find anything on local news sites but would seem quite coincidental if no relation.
  10. First video I ever saw on MTV when we first got cable back in '81. Was amazed by the drumming. Rush was huge during High School and while I really liked the music I just wasn't a fan of Geddy's voice. Luckily did see them live..
  11. Official position and title in the government overrides being a terrorist?
  12. Been going on for MANY years before this youngin.
  13. Indy also needs to beat Jax and one of these 4 must win (as it impacts strength of schedule tie breaker): NYG, Det, KC, NE. Biggest issue (other than Oak winning in Denver) is that Balt doesn't need game & already said key players are sitting.
  14. Still have 12.5% chance at making playoffs!! (Boy that loss last week hurts).
  15. Off the cuff (and under the influence), great response by Raiders after last week's let down. Unlike past teams, seems staff used that to drive them this week. No Jacobs so they went pass heavy in 1st half. Came out for 2nd half & seems like O was challenged due to past 2nd half collapses. The drive out of halftime was impressive pounding downfield with a backup RB & injured OL. Carr takes a lot of cr*p in here but 215 yds at half & finished at 87% completion rate. Even if every pass were a drop off to a RB that’d still be phenomenal, but he mixed in TEs & WRs. Renfroe is a nice addition. Give Carr a nice compliment of receivers and let’s see where he takes us!
  16. Looks like Gruden made a point of that coming out of half. Great drive there & ALOT of running! May have been a challenge in locker room.
  17. Agreed. He did a heck of a job driving them down against the #1 D on road. The throw on the run to Beasley is like Rodgers - elite. But also a killer that he can't drop in the TD to Knox. I'm not suggesting KGUN here, but based on way Allen plays in 4th and on late drives that maybe they start including more of that early in game.
  18. Horrible play call on first down with the momentum. Then knowing they are going to blitz there's no slant into middle which was probably wide open?
  19. So Edelman can spike ball at the defensive player w/o a penalty?
  20. They have 1 WR & no deep threat yet Brady hitting everything underneath, easy screens & then just getting killed against run.
  21. Started following NASCAR mid to late 70s through Dad. Became a fan of Darrell Waltrip - young, brash upcomer. He moved to a team owned by Junior Johnson & won 3 championships with him. Junior owned team but was also gas man! Anyway, for those not familiar with NASCAR history, this is like the passing of Paul Brown or Jim Thorpe - Junior is that integral to the birth of NASCAR.
