    Hahaha. Yes, and off that one performance he got signed to a big contract (I forget the team) and didn't even make it out of training camp.

    Holy crap. I hate the Celtics but nobody wants this to happen. Gruesome...and right in your face.

  6. For what it's worth...the following was on the Led Zeppelin Newsfeed and Ramble On Radio podcast: http://ledzepnews.com/2017/03/18/jimmy-pages-active-discussions-may-led-zeppelins-50th-anniversary/ Jimmy Page’s ‘active discussions’ may be about Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary The “active discussions” that Jimmy Page is currently involved in may be about activity surrounding Led Zeppelin’s fiftieth anniversary, Led Zeppelin podcast Ramble On Radio said in its latest episode. Last week we reported that Page has been in “active discussions” to perform as part of the Desert Trip festival in 2018. However, Ramble On Radio host Brian Gardiner said in his podcast that the “Oldchella” rumour is a euphemism, and instead the rumour is about possible future Led Zeppelin activity planned for 2018. The original rumour from last week came from a respected Led Zeppelin fan who does seem to have inside knowledge of the band’s activity. What’s not clear right now is what the rumoured discussions are about. They could be about a one-off show, a series of shows, or even the release of new material. The only thing we know for sure is that it’s still early days.

  12. I like the new album. "Carry Fire" is a Robert Plant album...with all that implies. It seems noisier and more raucous than the previous album, which was pretty mellow. But if you are pining for Led Zeppelin II or Plant screeching "Black Dog" '70s-style, then you probably won't like this record. After a few listens, I haven't sussed out a favourite song yet...though that one with all the Oud playing is a cracker. Love Chrissie Hynde lending her voice to "Bluebirds Over The Mountain". Looking forward to the tour.

    Stern is also one of those annoying people who think Led Zeppelin ripped off everything, so he'll probably go down that stairway.

    I don't want to jinx the Kings so I'm not saying anything. I'm sure Patrycja feels the same way about her Maple Leafs.
  17. 2017 NFL Thread

    I already said as much. My point was that with Green Bay losing Rodgers this helps Philadelphia's and Seattle's wild card chances. I didn't watch the Green Bay game nor have I seen the replay of the hit, so I can't say if I thought it was legal or not. Anybody think it was a late hit? https://deadspin.com/the-aaron-rodgers-hit-was-legal-and-thats-the-problem-1819506191

    Weird. That looks exactly like the Sunset Blvd. Tower Records. 😮
  19. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    Welcome to the most irrelevant regular season of the four major sports leagues. The NBA has a higher percentage of its teams in the playoffs than other leagues. The NBA is also where the higher seeded teams win more often than the high seeded teams in other leagues. More teams in the playoffs, yet still less upsets and Cinderella stories. This year everyone will still be chasing the Warriors. The contenders are the same teams it has been for the past few years...San Antonio, Houston, OKC, and Cleveland. Below them are Boston, Washington, Toronto, Portland, Utah, and the ever-underachieving Buffalo Braves aka L.A. Clippers, who will fall apart as Blake Griffin's body continues to break down. The Lakers will be fun to watch just to see every guard torch Lonzo Ball because of his asshole father. Their defense will be woeful again. At least Swaggy P is finally gone. But if they win 42 games it will be a miracle. Warriors vs. Spurs, Thunder, Cavs, Rockets, Spurs vs. Cavs, Thunder, Rockets, Thunder vs. Knicks, Rockets vs. Clippers, Rockets vs. Thunder, Celtics vs. Wizards...those are about the only regular season games that will be worth paying attention to this season.

    I don't think Green Bay survives this collarbone injury like they did the previous one. The Eagles and Seahawks just got a terrific boost in their playoff prospects. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/page/Barnwellx171016/layers-aaron-rodgers-collarbone-injury-whether-green-bay-packers-hang-make-2017-nfl-playoffs-nfc-north
  22. 2017 Major League Baseball thread....

    And he gets to go home to Kate Upton. It's not the same. But all I heard them say was that it was the Dodger's first walk-off HR since Kirk Gibson's in 1988 and he did it on the very same date 29 years later. I didn't hear anyone saying they were equal in impact and historical importance. But then, I wasn't watching ESPN.

    Of course the Giants are winning at Denver. It makes perfect sense. You had this, right zepscoda?

    Where they can keep the Raiders company. Raiders playoff aspirations just vanished. This season is kaput.
