Put me down in the MX5 realm of cars: lightweight, short wheelbase, manual transmission, crazy grip with sticky tyres, and a small but competent engine that reminds you on every shift that you're in a driver's sports car.

I'm with you, my first car was a '71 Triumph Spitfire. Not much power but it handled like it was on rails - and c'mon... I was 16 and had a convertible! I painted it silver with black accents, plus it had mag wheels and BF Goodrich Radial TA's with raised white letters (this probably means nothing to most of you youngsters but believe me, this was cool in the late '70s).

Maybe ten years after I sold it I saw another one for sale and when I drove it I was reminded about how much of a harsh rattle-trap it was and why I sold it.

That being said, to this day it's the only car that I owned that I still have dreams about.

While I hope that all of this isn't true and that they find a logical explanation for what happened, there are a few points to this that I find interesting.

If I understand correctly, both the Pats and the Colts game balls were checked by a ref before the game and were found to be legal. This means a couple things. One, that all the balls were probably checked by the same pressure gauge, which kills the excuse of faulty equipment, and two, whatever happened happened between the inspection and the game.

So, who has more to gain, or really, anything to gain from this other than Brady? Would a rogue ball-boy take it upon himself to deflate balls on his own? Maybe. Perhaps Brady made an off-hand remark about liking softer balls (giggity) and that's exactly what happened. I just can't see Brady or anyone else trusting a ball-boy to not only get away with this, but to keep quiet about it if he were caught.

I don't know, it'll probably end up as one of those things that never gets explained to anyone's satisfaction.

Thanks, but I don't know how "back" I am. I'm simply not that much of a gamer anymore so I really don't have much to contribute. I still lurk around because I like the people (even Cutter ) and the ootb conversations even if I don't know what game is being talked about. I do like to talk football though!

That being said I am looking forward to GTA5. I built the computer I'm using now to play GTA4 and overspent enough on the video card that it was actually fairly playable right from the start. I kind of hope that R* does a great job on the port but my machine still won't run it so I have an excuse to build a new box!

You're priceless Cutter!

C'mon, you can call me better names than that (hey everyone, I'm a hipster now). After all, I'm somehow bitter and crying because my team won - I must be a crazy!

But when you're right, you're right... it was the Packer's game to lose - and they did, did they ever!! Whoohoo whoohoo (think Daffy Duck here) whoohoo whoohoo!!!

Well, so much for not gloating. You brought out the worst in me Cutter, but what do expect from a crazy 52 year old hipster.

They're living proof that it's better to be lucky than good.

Yeah the Seahawks were lucky, lucky they were playing the Packers. When you score only 22 points after being given 5 turnovers I don't see how you can say things like "we were the better team today". And yeah the Seahawks stumbled, they played the worse three quarters of offense that I've seen them play in three years, good thing the game has four quarters, something the Packers forgot. I'd say the Packers were pretty goddamn lucky too - lucky they caught Wilson when he was as off as he's ever been, but you have to be good enough to take advantage of what you're given.

You know I wasn't going to say anything about the game because I don't like to gloat, and I do feel genuinely bad for most Packer fans. Also, if the Packers would have won I would have congratulated them as I'll congratulate the Pats if they win.

Like whatever! It was a rough start for GB, but they've been in the zone the last several weeks and that's what counts. They're definitely the strongest contender atm.

Yeah, yeah, but if you'll remember, the Hawks started the season pretty rough also. Honestly though, I'd hate to have to go to GB right now but the Packers on the road aren't nearly as scary.

Holy crap, that Panther's defense is looking freakin nasty right now.

So how come Dallas at 12-4 has to play a WC game, and Seattle at 12-4 doesn't, even though Dallas beat Seattle during the regular season?

I think if Seattle and Dallas were the only two teams with 12-4 records Dallas would get the bye, but since Green Bay also is 12-4 and Seattle beat Green Bay (Cutter) the next tie-breaker is division record. I could be wrong though, and like I said before, I'm not looking it up 'cause I'm lazy.

Blue, I see 17 people in the pool. Click on the "Results" header.

Btw I have the Panthers, Steelers, Bengals, and Cowboys - I just mention that as a helpful guide of who not to pick seeing as my prognostication skills have been terrible this year.

Oh, and going with Reagle's "Blue For a Day" prize scheme, I'd keep everything the same (including all the news stories because I'm lazy) but I'd rename "Out of the Blue" to "The Sausage Fest".

Congrats Verno, well done. I spent most of the year proving how much of a fluke last year was (although I did win my fantasy league this year).

And to LastPlace, that was truly impressive. Just for fun I matched almost all of my picks against the spread with what the "sharps" (pro gamblers) were going with and I would have lost my ass.

Not sure, but if you look at google, there are a LOT of people that are upset that games don't allow for config of RMB as forward.....

I was one of those upset people when it came to GTA IV. They made the RMB the non-changeable control for hanging up the cell phone. I had to start using the thumb button to go forward (which actually works quite well).

What's the deal with all this ice bucket water drops I've been seeing...like...everywhere?

It's for raising money (I'm not sure how) to fight ALS, aka Lou Gehrig's disease.

News Comments > GRID Autosport Street Discipline Trailer
3. Re: GRID Autosport Street Discipline Trailer Jun 18, 2014, 00:28 WarPig
 
I thought Grid 1 was a great balance between sim and arcade with the different cars having a lot of distinct character without being so technical that it lost its sense of fun.

Grid 2 on the other hand, while still fairly fun, was way too arcade like. Many races had to be run like a demolition derby to even have a chance of making up, say, ten spots in two laps through the slow "blocker" cars, and could be very frustrating.

Hopefully they dial the balance back to the original Grid for this one.

It's called football and you know it.

It's about time that other english speaking countries get over the fact that North America has a different name for what they call "football". Get the fuck over it! Let's look at cars... what we call a "trunk" you call a "boot", what we call a "hood" you call a "bonnet". Who cares? We sure don't. Hell, I don't know why "American" football is even called football, it just is (and it's awesome ).

So, for those of you who lack the coordination to catch and throw, play soccer! Play the hell out of it! Here in North American it's a great diversion for 11 year old girls.

The rest of us will enjoy the greatest game ever devised... FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

Aawww man, this sucks. Ramis was a huge part of a lot of my favorite comedies; Animal House, Cadyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, and of course, a Blues News staple, Groundhog Day. And I'm sure there are plenty more if I wanted to look it up on IMDB.

I mean really, are you fucking kidding me? Animal House? Caddyshack? Stripes? These are some of the most iconic and quotable movies of all time. This man deserved a lifetime Oscar or something didn't he? I was going to compose a post consisting of quotes from those movies but I simply don't have time.

"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son!"
"Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're a tremendous slouch."
"Lighten up Francis."
"Yes, it's true, this man has no dick."
"Don't drive angry. Don't drive angry!"

I've been reading about the disease that killed him and it sounds really awful, so even though I'm not religious, I hope he's in a better place now.

Rest In Peace Harold.

You picked against them in the BTI league? (Thanks!)
No I didn't, the site automatically picks for you if you don't make picks yourself and I didn't make any picks after the regular season was over. (You're welcome!)

I'm old enough that I had a favorite team before the Seahawks even existed. I liked the Vikings because Tarkington was so fun to watch and watched them lose three Superbowls. We got the Seahawks in 1976 and I've watched pretty much every game since then and a good deal of it was really ugly.

It was all worth it!
