Surprise military reunions at NFL games reach peak Bullsh*t

Maybe they are trying to make up for the rotten way we were treated when we came home in the Vietnam era. What should of been one of the happiest days of my life turned out to be by far the worst day of my life, I hid from the public until my hair grew out. Sorry. I would rather see them go overboard welcoming soldiers home then see even one go through the treatment we went through when we came home. Semper Fi.

There's something in the Olympic water in Rio...and it's not good.

Saw a news special on the water last night, by the pictures alone I wouldn't go near that water for any gold medal or any other reason.

CFL Pick 'Em, Week Five

@ jagsnumberone " I'm proving that less knowledge is, in fact, better when picking these"

Ain't that the truth, I barley watch the NBA and I tie for the win, I watch the NHL like my life depends on it and I just barely survive the Costanza.

CFL Pick 'Em, Week Five

This CFL is insane, it's like every team is bi-polar.

Ottawa by 3 (guess I want excitement)

B.C. by 10. Toronto took Babcock so all teams in Toronto must lose. (even though Bashill will kick start the next great Red Wings dynasty, it's the principal of it)

Edmonton by 10 ( they can't lose to Winnipeg at home can they?)

Hamilton by 14 (The Roughriders are my all time favorite CFL team but it ain't happening this year.)

These are my picks and I stand by them, NO Costanza for me!!!!

SpoFi NBA Pick 'Em final results

A tie for the win is a lot better then where I usually end up in these things. I think because the Pistons weren't in the playoffs there were no wishful thinking in my picks. Thanks to Ufez Jones for doing this.

Did I miss the Hockey Results? Been looking for them.

Golden State Exposes Cleveland in Game 4 Rout

Golden State will dominate the rest of the games but the
sad part is that no matter what super human effort LeBron James
puts out the media will blame him for losing the title. Micheal Jordon
couldn't win the title by himself, but back in those days the media
was intelligent enough to know that one super player doesn't make
a championship winning team. If you are as old as dirt as I am you will remember
in early playoff games teams playing against the Bulls would let
Jordon have his way and just stop everyone else. I think James is
one of the best players ever but until he gets a couple of good players around him Cleveland will not get the big prize.

Formula E Racing Comes to U.S.

Another form of BORING Racing, start out strong and barely moving at the end. The changing cars halfway through just proves that electric cars will never work unless you have a regular car also. Drive your local commutes everyday but if you want to take a trip forget it. A waste of money in racing.

Annotated list

Remember those times well, watched that first Ali-Frazier fight when closed circuit first came out, watched it live at a drive-in. Still say Ali won. Ali took boxing to a whole new world wide level. Howard Cosell helped make Ali a household name and Ali helped make Howard Cosell a household name, heavyweight boxing went downhill when promoters got greedy when they started making numerous titles and stripping fighters of titles because they wouldn't fight their fighters when they wanted them too. Those were the glory years of heavyweight fighters.
