    TO is the receiver who got F'ed as he was better than Darvin Garrison And whose the next guy to Rice, after Rice? It ain't Darvin Garrison. And who is the CEO of the Hall? David Baker...the man who ruined the Arena Football League http://articles.latimes.com/1988-11-15/news/mn-30_1_david-bakerj Baker is a former football player and has sons who have sued a lot.

    Dude, the "Punchlist" was still open today. Today, they just wanted and got a CO, or a Certificate of Occupancy. AKA the Fire Marshall was OK with having a game and club level sprinklers amd alarms worked. That issued just was added to the Punchlist.

    First MLB Game Memories

    My dad took my brother and me to a Reds game in 1978, but I don't remember the date or opponent. I remember it was a mid-week night game and after the game we we're walking across a bridge connecting the stadium with the downtown garages and during the walk I recall seeing and meeting area TV host Bob Braun. I do recall that we went that Reds game before we ever went to a Bengals game (the first NFL game was 9/16/79 Po Patriots@Bengals).

    The writers f*¬Ęked him, no doubt because they didn't "like" him and that's wrong when his numbers are that superior to everyone but Jerry Rice. The Hall want to use his face and name to make money as much as broke ass T.O. wants to make money for himself. It's more glaring as he was put in after the dude who we don't name, got in and that dude, whose name rhymes with "Darvin Garrison", had inferior numbers (Rec. yards, TDs, Y/catch), and "likely" killed a dude. As I said before, T.O. doesn't seem to be friendly with former teammates, so finding someone outside of his agent to induct him would be an issue, unless Steve Young wanted to take that bullet to honor him only to be criticized by T.O. days later.

    Pro Football Hall of Fame and its voters are MUCH more petty than Terrell Owens. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2018/07/12/terrell-owens-hall-fame-pro-football-canton/778698002/

    Sierra Mist? Mist Twst?

    It's partially the reason, but it's in their best interest to have a lemon/lime soda of their own. That's why they've kept trying post-Teem in the 60's. Back when they introduced Slice in the 80's, it couldn't be national due to a large percentage of their bottlers also bottled and distributed 7Up. 7Up never had an adequate distribution system and the owner at the time, Philip Morris (who also owned Miller Brewing in an effort to diversify from tobacco), has deals with Pepsi bottlers. During this time, while Coca Cola was consolidating the independent bottlers to form Coca Cola Enterprises, Pepsi still had 180+ independent bottlers, most with exclusive deals with 7Up. This Medium story from a former Dr. Pepper exec details the old soda business and how the FDA gets involved. https://medium.com/marketing-today/soft-drink-distribution-is-fascinating-8aecdcb016fc It took PepsiCo awhile to consolidate bottlers. In 1987, they had 187 but in 1998 at the time Yum! was spun off, they cut that number to 122. It was around the introduction of Sierra Mist. PepsiCo now owns 85% of their bottlers now. Owning bottlers makes it easier to get new product into stores.

    Meanwhile, Beckham and Miami still hit another snag. https://www.local10.com/sports/soccer/commissioners-kick-aside-beckham-soccer-stadium-plan-vote-to-july-18 And he and his group hired a commissioner's aunt as a consultant.

  12. I guess the quota of Sub-Indian or Southeast Asian indentured servants, err workers dying during construction of stadiums, training venues, roadways and hotels hasn't been met yet.
  13. When your coaches headbutts his player, your league is done LaVar. This isn't Bob Knight and this isn't 1986. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/basketball/2018/07/13/lavar-ball-junior-basketball-association-edward-denard-montrell-dixson/782053002/ Shut it down, now.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Illini players are to Phoenix too. Seems just a ploy to attract the Spring Training snowbirds. I totally understand that there are fewer FBS and FCS teams west of the Mississippi, but this is still haphazard in execution. They listed Air Force as a feeder. (Headshake) They didn't allocate Ohio State and Michigan to Orlando.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    If you are on a 90-man, then I consider you a member there as opposed to the college team. If you are from say Purdue and go undrafted by the NFL and unclaimed by the CFL, what are you? You're a free agent. If you are under the same conditions, but played at say, Oklahoma, you're slotted for San Antonio. Edit: Somehow, Maryland is aligned with the Birmingham team and Northwestern/Illinois with Phoenix. WTF?
