    So, we are one of "the Few". My cousin was one of the real "Few", as in "Never in the course of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so Few" RAF fighter pilot during Dunkirk and The Battle of Britain. He was portrayed by Tom Hardy in Dunkirk. Here they are together:
  2. As you note, Marino's team went to the Super Bowl the season before they drafted him. Baker's team went 0-16 the year before they drafted him. Marino went to play for Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL history. Baker went to play for Hue Jackson, who has he worst losing record in NFL history........save one guy who was a team owner who didn't want to fire himself. Is that the disparity you are talking about?

    I probably don't. My school, Akron U does not play them.

    Because TAMU has not earned the respect at this point. Next time: beat Alabama.

    I don't think anyone here has a clue what just went on there. I mean, it looks like a guy caught what we would call a foul ball.
  8. My father in law got 5 of the 6 numbers. With all 6 it would have been a minimum of 3 million. As it was, I think he won $1500.

    You may be right, but apparently the bettors, or those who set the betting lines must think this is significant.
  10. The Akron Rd. Speedway is only about a mile away from my house. But it wasn't me who won. DAMN!!

    Here are today's items: 1. Based on what I am seeing, the Atlanta Hawks could actually win their series vs. the 76ers. 2. Speaking of which, the NBA Champion this year will be "Fresh Blood". Of the teams that are left, the one that has won the most recent championship are those 76ers...who won it in 1983....which is 38 years ago...or like 2 generations ago. All the the teams let in the West have never won a title: Jazz, Nuggets, Clippers, Suns. In the East, the Bucks last won in s1971, Nets won an ABA title in the 70s. Hawks have not won since 1958. 3. The Indians losing a series to the terrible Orioles is just disgusting IMO. 4. The Usual Suspects are at the Top of the Sporting News Top 25 college football poll: Alabama, Ohio St. Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia. 5. The Titans obtaining Julio Jones raised their odds of winning the Super Bowl from 35-1 to now 30-1. A big leap for the acquisition of a non-QB. 6. Impromptu OTAs for the Browns are being hosted by Baker Mayfield in Austin TX at this time. 7. What is more important: the talent, or the person coaching that talent. The reason I ask is that the Browns are going to have a wholesale change on defense this year, but are going to have the same coach for that defense: Joe Woods. Is Woods going to be a better coach with better talent? You would think so/hope so, but I am not necessarily convinced. 8. I think Serena Williams may be done winning major tennis championships. She was aufed yesterday in the French Open
