  2. Star Wars or the Godfather?

    First time I looked at this thread. Actually a pretty good discussion for this cemetery. I think one point has been missed. Both films were responsible for breaking the mold of, "the sequel always sucks".....and that's where my opinion differs from others. I think "The Empire Strikes Back" is the finest sequel ever made, and I have no problem putting it above "Godfather II". The dark side took over in the second Star Wars movie, and the mix of the force, the dark side noir, the under-flowing religious themes, the further development of the relationships between the characters, and most of all, the technology ! The soundtrack to this movie was mind-blowing when seen in the theater. 35 years later and the light sabre scenes still hold up with the proper sound system. Lucas was unleashed and he delivered. It also probably made more money through plastic spaceships and dolls than at the gate. "Return of the Jedi" also beats "Godfather 3" hands down. There's 5 Charles Bronson movies that beat "Godfather 3" If I had to pick, "The Godfather", "Citizen Kane", and "Gone With the Wind" are the greatest movies ever made IMHO.

    The Lions are lucky their best player is their kicker. As that game unfolded I thought for sure I was going to hear their time honored excuse of starting the game on grass with the wrong cleats. Mathew took another beating. If you're going to shift me to an overtime game, don't suddenly cut the coverage at the most pivotal moment....how ignorant ! A very nice roster of Thanksgiving games this year. Looking forward to it.

    I always thought the L. A. Lions had a nice ring to it.

    Kind of like the over-head video game camera angles they showed last night, especially from the perspective of Mariota's interceptions. I called the one out before he even threw the football. Doesn't really seem to fit kickoffs though. Lion trap game ahead !

    Someone teaches Andre Drummond how to shoot a free throw and out of nowhere the Pistons are contenders. I approve !!

  16. This is a weird one (again)..... Have you ever noticed that weed whips and leaf blowers are tuned to the same key and eventual note as the beginning drone of "In the Light" ? (I hear ya'.....time to put down the weed for awhile Bong-Man !)

    When it comes to '77 shows, people always hate the omission of D & C from the set-list. Those people should be reminded that we were treated to an acoustic set for the first time in America since '72. After all the pushing & shoving, I still remember many of the main floor crowd sitting down indian-style at Robert's command when the set began. "Black Country Woman" was great ! Read in the paper where they are going to have an open-house at the Silverdome for anyone that wants to check the place out one last time before demolition. In the memory of Led Zeppelin, The Who, Bob Seger, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Barry Sanders, and two High School Proms, I might have to take them up on that invitation.

    They say you're smart if you can admit you're stupid. pleb·i·scite [ˈplebəˌsīt] NOUN plebiscites (plural noun) the direct vote of all the members of an electorate on an important public question such as a change in the constitution.

    C'mon Justin !.....one more !! You didn't come all this way to lose this one. Trick or treat time....show the Yanks & Cubs how being cheap earned them a seat on the couch. Agreed. Can't say I've ever seen such lack of consistency in calling balls and strikes, and it wasn't just this series. Outside and low seems to be wandering quite a bit, especially depending on the count.

    Lol.....agreed. Grow one every Winter, but it's gone by 70 degrees. Wearing one at 100 degrees would just be irritating and sweaty as hell. I can see why football players like a little scruff though. Chinstraps can be irritating as hell, especially if you're prone to ingrown hairs. Gotta cut this guy some slack though....he's actually Amish.

  25. 2017 NFL Thread

    Was wondering if Moore was going to make it out of that game alive last night, and then Flacco ends up taking the big hit. The Dolphins offense is very offensive ! Which brings us to Brian Mihalik. Never heard of him ?....me neither. He was drafted in the 7th round by Philly as a Defensive End. He ended up in Pittsburgh, who attempted to turn him in to an Offensive lineman. He never played a down in an NFL game and was let go. We picked him up, and he'll be starting at Left Tackle this week against his old team on Sunday night. Just making you aware that Mathew Stafford is about to become a human piñata just in time for Halloween.
