V Can Count From I To XXXIX

Okay watching the game amongst McNabb haters yesterday i was forced to confront the question; Is McNabb really good or does he just have amazing receivers ? There were some catches made yesterday that really shouldnt have been made ( including the last touchdoen that cost me the pot at 4-4 ) He throws wildly and inaccurately but the receivers make him look good. Please discuss :-)

Fox hunting is now illegal in England.

It looks like it is always used for things associated with the English upper classes :-)

Fox hunting is now illegal in England.

Well it will be illegal in a year , the ban only becomes immediate if the Parliament act is used so the supporters can go on ripping foxes to bits for a year with packs of dogs or lose that "right" immediately if they force a block in the House of Lords.

The MLS officially announces expansion squads.

I thouht it was agreed that Chivas US was going to play in Carson sharing with the LA Galaxy. Alternate home games keeping the stadium heavily used.

Sorry for the total derail but it does involve swimming .. sort of . From another PIF "Rolf lies back in the water and waves with his foot. Then the action freezes, but you can hear the children shouting: "Get Him! Get Him!"" Excellent link, squealy .

Squat-thrusts, arm dips, and spectacular bike accidents!

I remember ; Jonah Barrington storming out; One of the cyclists not able to do even one arm dip ( No upper body strength he claimed) Everyone trying to cheat at armdips especialy Neal Adams. A racing car driver, if i remember correctly, putting a greased up towel on his shoes to make the squat thrusts easier. It got nice and competitive from what i remember. .. and this is the first time in 18 years that the name and image of Brian Jacks has been in my head :-)

rcade , this photo on cnn.com is from almost exactly the same time as the one you show. You can see how deceptive the angle is; My SF Giant fan friend who was just waiting for Baker to screw up is very happy now.

Ten superb pics.

This site found 3 more of the 50 images. here Anyone with an actual copy of OSM care to list what the pictures were ? .. and for an English magazine i am surprised that Maradonas other image made it to only 33. As a Scot i am so sick of the whining that goes on about that incident ; if anyone mentions that HOG to you make them describe the other goal Maradona scored in that game if they can.

At least they found it before they had to print its picture on milk cartons.

Of course that is not the current World Cup that Moore is holding , it is the original Jules Rimet Trophy . Brazil were given that to keep ( and then have stolen ) in 1970. The Stanley Cup worries me that as the years go by and more rings are added it becomes more and more like the the Nascar and hot rod trophies that compete with the drivers for height more that quality.

Europe and Latin America conquer the US!

http://soccertv.com/ has all the times and channels Ufez, There are usually a few of Mexican/South American club games played in Los Angeles , its quite an interesting atmosphere to be in. :-) I am going to the Team Americas game although there was no attempt at segregation so again interesting atmosphere. ( They appear to have sold 30,000 tickets and expect a 30,000 walk up crowd ; they had much the same for the original Galaxy games.Lots of walk up traffic )

Payton chooses L.A.!

I have always wondered about this in Basketball. Basically get all the "superstars" who missed rings and at the end of their contracts sign them to friendly deals that give them cuts of shirts deals etc to try and be the Harlem Globetrotters of the NBA. Just go out barnstorming. Every year refill the team with the latest older end of contract non title winner and have a blast. Everyone would want to see them. Is there any rule that would stop this as long as they are under the salary cap ??? Make it a city-less NBA team that moved leagues each season and let them go.
