  1. Not with you but at you...
  2. Just 1 week out of the year...that's all we ask. The rest of the year can be for plaid pants and funny hats. We don't even play on the courses.
  3. Nothing wrong with bikers!!
  4. My guess would be a golf ball but, hey, I'm not an expert on golf.
  5. I read your whole post. While it makes sense I have to wonder why you think you know so much more than the others that you claim know "a little bit about some FB". Not just FB but some FB no less. :worshippy:

    And hear about it for the rest of my life from Eagles, Redskins and <gasp> Cowboys fans? I'd rather win it on a level playing field.
  11. http://www.nj.com/printer/printer.ssf?/bas...9040.xml&coll=1 Baseball Musings for Wednesday Wednesday, March 01, 2006 On paper, the Mets are the clear favorites to win the National League. Wait. Did you hear that? That was the sound of every Mets fan in the world simultaneously going, "Sssssshhhh!" No Mets fan wants to hear that the Mets are favored to do anything. The natural state of the Mets fan is misery and pessimism. The history of the Mets franchise is one of crushing mediocrity and disappointment punctuated by occasional, surprising success. Even their greatest team was supposed to follow the glory of 1986 with more glory and ... didn't. So, when somebody says the additions of Carlos Delgado and Billy Wagner to an already promising roster in a weak division make the Mets the favorites, the Mets fan thinks: Jim Fregosi, Pat Zachry, Doug Flynn, Terry Pendleton, Mike Scioscia, Orel Hershiser, Juan Samuel, Bobby Bonilla, Vince Coleman, Kenny Rogers, Armando Benitez, Luis Sojo, Mo Vaughn, Roberto Alomar ... We don't want to say the Mets' expectations are too high, because they're not. They do look very good. And being favored in the National League is like being favored to win a beauty pageant in which all of the other contestants are wild boars. But history tells Mets fans to fear expectations like these. When you're a Mets fan, you have to see it first.
  12. We have a lot of chowder heads that proport to be Giants fans and arent' very knowledgable about football. Then we also have the kids who played so much Madden now that they facy themselves as football savvy.

"What it gives me is no cap room," he said half-jokingly at the NFL scouting combine. That's not exactly the case, Accorsi then clarified. The Giants actually have a bit of room -- about $6 million after cutting linebacker Barrett Green and offensive lineman Jason Whittle yesterday and announcing the impending release of safety Brent Alexander. But they will use some of that to tender tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, a restricted free agent, and hope to use some more on multiyear deals for defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy and punt/kick returner Chad Morton. Accorsi was confident both players will remain with the Giants. Pro Bowl special-teamer David Tyree is also a restricted free agent, but he will likely receive a long-term contract from the Giants. "We have some room, depending on what the cap figure is going to be," Accorsi said. "But obviously, not the kind of room we had last year (nearly $10 million heading into free agency)." In the past few weeks, the salary cap was projected to be around $92 million. But more recent reports have pegged it at about $96 million. That would give the Giants more money for a cornerback, linebacker or safety -- their three biggest positions of need. Before they add, though, they began to subtract. As first reported in yesterday's Star-Ledger, the Giants parted with Green, whose two-year tenure with the team was filled with injuries, fines and disagreements with coach Tom Coughlin. Green played only 11 games after signing a five-year contract two years ago. "I'm looking forward to a new opportunity," Green said yesterday afternoon in a text message. "I'm healthy now and that will dictate my future." When Accorsi stepped to the podium a few minutes before noon yesterday, he announced the release of Green, 28, and Whittle, 30, and also said Alexander had retired. However, that was a premature announcement, as the 34-year-old hasn't yet made an official decision. His agent, Jim Solano, said there was a miscommunication between Alexander and the team. Regardless of whether Alexander retires or not, his days as a Giant are over. The team will give him the rest of the weekend to retire. If he doesn't, he will be released, Accorsi said. James Butler, a rookie free agent last season who earned playing time in the dime defense, is currently the best bet to replace Alexander as the starting free safety. Punter Jeff Feagles, who was considering retirement, appears likely to return under a schedule that will allow him to spend part of each week with his family in Arizona. Whittle became expendable when backup guard Rich Seubert signed a two-year extension earlier this month. "It just gets to a point that, cap-wise, we can't afford everybody," Accorsi said. "We did tell him depending on if there is an extension of the CBA and there is more money, we would consider bringing him back for depth reasons because he's a very popular player." Chiefs coach Herman Edwards tried his best not to answer questions about the Jets and QB Chad Pennington, but eventually caved when peppered with repeat questions. "It's a big deal. There's no doubt about it," Edwards' said of Pennington's injury and contract situations. "But if anybody can do it, I believe Chad can do it. That's his mental toughness, what type of guy he is. He's a unique individual, he really is. "He played with that thing all tore up those last five or six games (in 2004) and made the playoffs. If anybody can do it, Chad can do it. I'm praying for him." Pennington's agent, Tom Condon, was to meet with Jets management this weekend to speak about the QB's hefty contract and a possible pay cut to help with the Jets' bloated salary cap. Edwards said he has spoken to Pennington recently, but refused to divulge any details. Pennington isn't the only one he has kept in touch with. "All of those guys," he said. "That's what happens when you're close to your players. And that's the hardest thing. Just because you're not there doesn't mean they're still not your guys because they are. You're still friends with them." Edwards missed those players, but said he is content with his decision to leave for Kansas City. "I'm happy with my life," he said. "I was happy in New York. Don't try to make something worse when there's nothing to make. You act like I wasn't happy there. I'm a happy guy. Why shouldn't I be happy?"
  14. Agreed. I think this was the thinking at the time of the Benson and Jay S. trade. It had to be.
  15. Not a big fan of King's but he makes good sense here. Good read. Thanks.
  16. I'd like to see the 3-4 defense. It causes problems for the offense and you can disguise your plays a little easier.
  17. I have more than one game...more like "at bats" if you will. I remember the opposing teams on more than one occasion intentionally walking a batter to get to Wright. Almost every time he burned them either with a double, HR or even a walk. I love the little game inside BB and I think Wright will be a super star.
  18. I hope to be a someone you meet this year...
  19. My spidey senses are tingling. .. :ninja:
