Not a bad first half.  It looked like a blowout early.


Lions penalties keeping it close. New coach, new coordinators, new sysem = same Lions......so far

I wouldn't worry about Ebola, unless you are answering email requests for our friends in Nigeria looking to deposit large sums of money into your account.

My weekend picks sucked balls.  Guess that move to Vegas is off.
Everyone should believe in something.  I believe I'll have another beer.

A buddy and I have been making picks against the spread for nearly 10 years now, just for fun.  All NFL games plus 9 college games.  We're both hovering around .500, lol.

One year I actually batted .550.  Problem is, no way could I stomach the years that brought that average down to .500.  I have no idea how folks can handle losing streaks like that.  I don't have the backbone for it.

I think it was 95, I hit .89 and made a boatload. The previous year was like .77 I actually thought I had a gift. 1996 would come though and reality reared its ugly head. Probably saved me from some really bad decisions to be honest

27-7 has a nice ring to it. Maybe the Lions contend for real this season

Not before the end of the game ;)     I actually think Coughlin is a good coach and Manning is a good QB. You need pieces in this game. Manning needs recievers and blockers ......

Avionics communication?  Is that software for air traffic control?  Sounds cool.
