  1. NCAA Football Video Game Ideas

    I would like to see the player's choice of post-season system. They can either pick the current system, pick the BCS, the old bowls-and-polls system, or perhaps something not seen before.
  2. The Sports Media Thread

    I look forward to the day when I am allowed to hate a woman in her job because she sucks, and not be heaped on with a lot of "you hate her just because she's a woman".
  3. About the ads mentioned earlier in this thread, I get San Diego Padres ticket ads on the Seattle Times page because I also read about the Chargers, so it's somehow in my history that "hey, this guy likes the Chargers, let's try to sell him Padres tickets no matter what page he's on" As for the draft, I used to watch it religiously, but have stopped in the last few years, just have no interest. I may check the next day or when the whole thing is done to see who my team selected, and if any Washington Huskies were selected, but now I just don't care. Never heard of this Wentz guy until a week or so ago.
  4. Minnesota North Stars Rebrand Petition

    I have the same name as my father. Does that mean I can claim all his accomplishments? According to various sports leagues and people here, I can, as long as my dad leaves them to me. Guess I'll have to start adding my military service during Vietnam to my resumes and applications.
  5. . or . : How Many Spaces After a Period?

    I still use 2 spaces, but since I proofread a lot of materials, I now let 1 space slide by whereas I use to correct it to 2 spaces.
  6. Minnesota North Stars Rebrand Petition

    I'm of the opinion that a franchise history is the franchise history and no matter how you try to change it, you can't change history. The Oklahoma City franchise won the NBA title in 1979 while playing in Seattle, and no amount of revisionism can change that fact. If the Washington Nationals choose to honor the old Expos, that's their business, but as far as I am concerned, Gary Carter, Tim Raines, etc. played for the Washington Nationals franchise while it was located elsewhere. Whether the NFL recognizes it or not, Jim Brown played for the Baltimore Ravens franchise while it was located in Cleveland. Special allowances and league recognition doesn't matter, history is history.
  7. TSA Question

    It happened again this weekend, and finally, a nice TSA agent actually answered my question, I followed his advice and did not set it off of my return trip. Apparently, the t-shirt I wear underneath the long-sleeve shirt gets bunched up in the shoulder, and the detector can't read through it. On my return trip, I wore just a t-shirt, nothing underneath and breezed on through. Hopefully that solves the problem.
  8. TSA Question

    Thanks for all your help. I would have thought it was just a random check, except it's happened 4 times in a row and at the same specific body section. I'll be wearing a plain t-shirt on my next flight to rule that out if possible. Who knows, maybe some sympathetic TSA guy will answer me next time.
  9. TSA Question

    I had a question for TSA, one that the agents at the airport will not answer, and just got a bureaucratic response email from them that doesn't answer my question, so I figured it couldn't hurt to solicit outside opinions. The last 4 times I've flown, I've set off the x-ray scanner and they always pat down and squeezemy right shoulder front and back. Again, they don't answer my questions, but the outside scanner shows that something in my shoulder has set it off. I have never had surgery and can't think of how anything metal could be in there. I also wear just a t-shirt when I go through, so it's not in my clothing. I'm getting close to believing the theory that I have an alien implant that has slid out of my head and lodged in my shoulder, but I'm willing to hear other theories or even the actual truth. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  10. New Finland hockey jerseys

    The article said they'll have them for their first game, and it went on to talk about how a local company did them because of the contracts in place for the Olympics and World Cup, they could do them for this. Not quite sure, I ran it through a translation program, so some nuances of the articlemay be missing to me. I still think they look better than the World Cup ones

    Finland revealed their new jersey for the upcoming World Hockey Championships.

  13. Austria Hockey

    I know these are frowned on here, but just mentioning it for those who want to enter. The Austrian national hockey team is asking for submissions to design their new team jersey which will be used through qualifying and hopefully the 2018 Olympics. Run this page through the translation of your choice if you don't read German.
  14. Why you wear what you wear...

    My friend and I have always had a hockey jersey Friday for years now. It starts on the first Friday of the regular season, and ends when your team is eliminated from the playoffs (Pittsburgh for me, Anaheim for him.) I always start off with my favorite jersey, a Vancouver Canucks Trevor Linden jersey, second Friday is my Mario Lemieux one, then I wear whichever I want that day. Wearing an Anchorage Aces jersey I got when I was working for the team way back when...
  15. 2015 NFL Season-Now with Playoff Talk

    I thought nothing of the Budweiser comment, other than it reminded me of old Seattle Pilots manager Joe Schultz telling his players time and again to "go pound those Budweisers"...
