  1. It's that time of year football fans! Preseason is finally over and Week 1 of the 2017 Regular Season begins next Thursday. We have been doing this for five years now, so everyone should know the drill by now. If any newcomers wish to join in the contest, please do...the more the merrier. No worries about the point spread. Just pick the team you think will win the game. Please remember to get your Thursday pick in before the Thursday game kicks off. All the other games for the week can wait until Saturday...Sunday morning before kickoff at the latest. Walter Junior was the Regular Season winner last year. Mrs. W won the Playoff Pool. Spread the word to your friends and neighbors. Let's get a good crowd of participants this year and let's have some fun! Of course, if your team signed Jay Cutler as QB, fun may be hard to come by. Best of luck to you all. Week 1 Thursday, Sept. 7 All Times E.S.T. Kansas City at New England 8:30 pm Sunday, Sept. 10 N.Y. Jets at Buffalo 1:00 pm Atlanta at Chicago 1:00 pm Baltimore at Cincinnati 1:00 pm Pittsburgh at Cleveland 1:00 pm Arizona at Detroit 1:00 pm Jacksonville at Houston 1:00 pm Tampa Bay at Miami 1:00 pm Oakland at Tennessee 1:00 pm Philadelphia at Washington 1:00 pm Indianapolis at L.A. Rams 4:05 pm Seattle at Green Bay 4:25 pm Carolina at San Francisco 4:25 pm N.Y. Giants at Dallas 8:30 pm Monday, Sept. 11 New Orleans at Minnesota 7:10 pm L.A. Chargers at Denver 10:20 pm
  2. Since the last thread was purged, I am resurrecting it for all of us 'foodies'. Post a description and/or photo of what you are eating now or what was your most recent meal. Since breakfast kicks off the day, I'll begin this thread with my breakfast that I'm about to tuck into: eggs sunny side up, bacon, French toast, orange juice.

    New Orleans - L The Saints could have made things so much easier with a win. Now it's a logjam in the NFC South and Atlanta is still alive. Buffalo. Goddammit Rick...I can finally unapologetically root for your Bills this week. I cannot stand the Dolts. Carolina. My instinct tells me to keep riding the hot team in Minnesota. My instinct is usually wrong when it comes to Carolina games...so I'm going against it. Cincinnati. What a shit-sandwich of a game. Every person attending should get a refund. When is Marvin Lewis going to get fired for running a losing, dirty team? Ain't nobody shedding tears for that POS Berfict. Green Bay. The Packers still have a playoff chance while the Browns need to lose so as not to lose their #1 to San Francisco or the Giants. San Francisco. I believe the '49ers may have found their quarterback...and didn't have to give up too much to New England to get him. Seattle. You've seen Seattle's record in the month of December. Oakland. The freaking Giants and Jets have beaten Kansas City. If Oakland cannot win this game then coach Jack Del Rio should be fired. Detroit. Why Bong-Man? Why do I keep thinking Detroit will turn a corner? Arizona. Meh. Neither team instills confidence in a betting-man. Basically a coin-flip game. Denver. Only because the Broncos are at home and I don't trust the Jets on the road. Chargers. I hate picking the Carson Chumps. But they control their playoff destiny while I think the Redskins have quit on Gruden and this season. Rams. Rams and Eagles in a Battle for NFC Supremacy? Just shows how topsy-turvy the NFL can be one season to the next (save New England). Dallas. In Hollywood, Eli comes back to lead the Giants to victory and get revenge for his benching. But I'm not buying it. Pittsburgh. Baltimore-Pittsburgh is usually the most brutal rivalry. Which makes one wonder how they will top last week's Bengals-Steelers brawl. New England. Gronk deserved a bigger suspension. That was a chickenshit cheapshot. But even without Gronk, New England is better than Miami and still highly motivated to win out and finish ahead of Pittsburgh.

    Seattle is a west coast team travelling east for the early game, which means Seattle's players' bodies will be on 10am time.

  12. Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    Looking over your Mom's tastes, might I suggest these ten: "That's The Way" - Led Zeppelin III "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp" ~ Led Zeppelin III "Going to California" ~ Led Zeppelin IV "Down By the Seaside" ~ Physical Graffiti "Ten Years Gone" ~ Physical Graffiti "Hot Dog" ~ In Through the Out Door "Rain Song" ~ Houses of the Holy "Over the Hills and Far Away" ~ Houses of the Holy "Hey Hey What Can I Do" ~ Coda Companion disc "Thank You" ~ Led Zeppelin II Also, I would play the Led Zeppelin III version of "Since I've Been Loving You" instead of the BBC one. Live Led Zeppelin can be a little too raw, rough and brutal for first-time initiates. Save the live stuff for after you have gotten her a toehold in the band. Good luck.

    ^^^None of those work in the U.S. R.I.P. Johnny Hallyday. 74 from lung cancer. A Gallic Giant. 😢 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-42247551 Another one of the many greats to whom Jimmy Page lent his talents. Sometime between the meltdown of the Yardbirds and the rise of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page found time to play on this Johnny Hallyday scorcher from 1968. Elvis never got this psychedelic.

    The only thing I remember is from 1976, being in the car when "Kashmir" came on the radio and my stepmom said it sounded like music for a movie.
