I'm usually not bad at identifying voices either but the voice-over from yesterday's great video of the 1962 Monaco Grand Prix was driving me crazy. I knew it was someone that I heard a lot in my childhood but the name wouldn't come. Finally it hit me, it's Burl Ives - aka Sam the Snowman from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Keith David often brings an almost Shakespearean quality to his voice-over rolls while Ving Rhames brings the crazy! They're both excellent.

Blue, in the past have you ever been fooled by one of these April Fool's articles? I could see it easily happening in the old days or with articles that aren't that weird. And along those lines, have you ever placed an article in the "April Fool's Roundup" and later found out it was real?

Blue, next year you or someone else here should set up a Blue's News Final Four Bracket Challenge on ESPN. I get in one every year and believe me, you don't have to know that much about college basketball to win or at least be in the running.

It simply gives you a rooting interest in every game which makes it worth watching - or at least worth following.

It was a learning experience. Google Chrome on android would not remember that I said it was ok to continue and would block the site every chance it got. But Firefox on android stored the setting and it was surfing bluesnews as if nothing was out of the blue.

Oh, not me man - I figured Blue has been playing the nice guy for 20+ years and was finally springing his trap!

This was the only Buick that ever interested me. Shame it never made production.

I thought this Buick concept looked pretty good too...

Congrats Mr. Tact, there was just no catching you. In the end after a couple bad weeks I was forced to go into full upset mode and it worked out about as well as I thought it would.

And as far as my win in the point spread pool goes, it was a good thing I had built a big lead because my clicker finger pulled a hammy about three weeks ago and I had to limp in for the finish.

Merry Christmas all.

We also have snow here in S.E. Washington State. I moved into a new house this summer that's situated on a corner lot so I've got a lot of sidewalk to shovel. So I go outside and start shoveling and look up to see a guy with a snowblower plowing my way who proceeds to clear off my walk and driveway. Turns out it's the Chief of Police!

Well, it's not really that strange, he does live across the street from me.

It wasn't just nice to get dug out, it was also nice to see a snowblower being used close up because I ordered one last week and hope to pick it up from Sears soon but I have absolutely no experience using one.

Last year I bought the one mid-size truck that you didn't mention, a Honda Ridgeline, and I love it. You don't get the towing that you get with the Chevy or the Toyota but it's still 5000lbs which is more than enough for me. I think it's the only unibody (instead of body-on-frame) truck you can buy and the difference in the ride and handling was very noticeable to me. I replaced an old Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Ridgeline and noticed no difference in how well it got through the ice and snow last year (and we had a lot).

My favorite feature is the "trunk" under the bed - along with the tailgate that opens both ways.

That being said, you also can't go wrong with a Mazda (my other car is a Miata).

It took a while for that to strike me, but it has some merit. Especially since it came from Mara, who doesn't have to worry about winning or losing to protect his "job."

Yes, exactly. Btw, I'm not saying that any of the players are tanking, after all they're obviously still playing as hard as they can, if not for the coach or each other, for their future contracts. At the same time they're only human and when you feel management is a total shit-show it might make a guy make a "business decision" the next time he's expected, for instance, to lay out for a ball across the middle.

That being said, next year when the Giants are projected to win four games or whatever, they'll probably win the East, 'cause that's what it seems like they always do.

I was wondering if you (Blue) would comment on the Eli situation.

If you ask me they're simply tanking and hoping for the highest draft pick they can get. I wouldn't be saying that if they were starting Webb - their season is over and it makes (some) sense to figure out what they've got in him. But Geno "Sucker Punched" Smith? That tells me that they're simply afraid that Eli will win a game or two, which could happen with a healthy Shepard.

As far as how it was handled - at least have the balls to stand by the decision instead of all this "I wish I was there" crap (Mora) and "it wasn't just my decision" crap (McAdoo). Mora saying that he was surprised that Eli didn't want any part of starting and then being pulled to keep the streak alive just tells me that Mora has no idea what makes Eli, or any other competitor, tick.

Here are my predictions on what's to learn with this experiment: Davis Webb will turn out to be the second coming of Ryan Nassib, and Geno Smith is going to turn out to be the second coming of Geno Smith

To me, that was the funniest thing you've ever written.

Creston, what exactly is giving out on your speakers? I'm just asking because I have a pair of Dahlquist speakers from the early 80's that finally had the foam that supports the outside of the cones start to fall apart so I bought a re-coning kit from these guys...

https://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-recone-kits.html

... and was able to fix them up as good as new for $31.

I remember several years ago that they really cracked down on late qb hits. Like if he'd released the ball, you had to look like you were avoiding the hit or be called for roughing. Are the more relaxed in calling this these days?

The difference is that once a QB leaves the pocket like he did he's considered a runner and isn't afforded the normal protection a QB in the pocket is given.

As one of the few people around here who's old enough to remember "Family Affair" I have to admit I thought the same thing when I saw the name Jodie Whittaker.

God I hated that show!

As some of you may remember I used to visit and post fairly regularly here at Blue's but have pretty much turned into a lurker for the last few years. That being said, I don't know if I missed something that everyone already knows or if nobody knows the following...

what the hell happened to nin?

Yes, it's a gaming site but this is the OoTB section which has always been for off-topic discussions - as long as it stays civil of course.

Unless it means we can only talk about the Knicks today...

So who would have thought Phil Jackson would be so bad at being a GM? I figured that there was a chance that he wouldn't be great at the job, but wow, I didn't think anyone could compete with Matt Millen as far as GM incompetence goes but he's giving it a good run.
