  1. How about Baytown, Texas lovely place.
  2. If this team wins less than 5 games it will be a letdown and a step closer to becoming the new Baytown Browns.

    I was referring mainly to the playoff picture back then, no wild cards either. But from 1933 - 1970+ they royally sucked......but don't try and tell a steelrz fan that.

    New Stadium in Las Vegs

    Oh god my favorite exchange of the day......"deezzz guys were in a bar and were challenged to go play soccer" . Are you kidding me? If I were drinking in a bar I'd throw up if you wanted me to run around chasing a ball like it's the chicken in the Rocky movie. If you look at the echelon of world athletes it would be a bit subjective but the hardest team sport to play physically would have to be American football followed by basketball or hockey (ice, try it!) then everything else in some order. Just try for a minute to take out our personal likes and preconceived notions out of the equation. Anyone who wants to line up against a professional or collegiate football team and go for four quarters would get killed! Sure and a skinny butt marathon runner from Kenya can run 26.2 miles also NOT a team sport. Soccer players stand around a lot (yes i've watched the USA men's and women's team in the Olympics and World Cup and our football team played one summer in high school) just try and watch it! Zzzooooooo. And soccer the world's game, look it up, some form has been played going back about 2,000 years. All you need is a ball or human skull or something to kick around a field. (yes it's been theorized they used deceased enemies skulls way back but no video remains). The USA was a bunch of woods back then. That is why it is viewed and followed all over the world. OH and when was the last American football riot where they throw lit flares or people were killed? Do they put chain link link fences around the BROWNS games? Are some teams fans BARRED from some games or entire countries? True or false? So to each his own but I guarantee you I'm not TIVOing a marathon game or soccer or golf match anytime this century. The recent CTE health crisis has been the biggest recent boom for soccer more mommies won't let their kids play tackle football, that's good for soccer they will get more former football athletes and mom's to attend games. Just my humble opinion of course.

  10. No BROWNS WEEK 9? Hey no problem we still have to eat, so what's your favorite gameday or just weekend eats? Dine in or tavern hangout, carryout, favorite rib, chicken, pizza, sandwich, whatever or even cook at home what's up for gameday?

    Former Brown Winslow arrested for burglary

    Well Jim Brown did win 8 of 9 NFL rushing titles during his reign but yes only ONE ring......before he decided to go play army man in the Dirty Dozen. The Packers and Colts basically crowded him out of any shot at more titles. It's both who you play and when you play that can determine how many championships you get a shot at in any sport.

    Well hockey is 5 guys on the ice with razor sharp skates carrying clubs and bashing each other against the boards and thank goodness most all important games don't end up 1-0 or in a tie, sometimes 0-0 or 1-1. Zzzzzzzzoooooooo. My definition - soccer, recess for big kids.

    IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, FYI....... In the television series, Miami Vice, firearms took a key role. Episodes such as "Evan"[2] revolved around them, while the characters themselves also used several firearms during the series. Sonny Crockett (played by Don Johnson) was to have used a SIG Sauer P220,[1][3] but this was replaced by the then more modern Bren Ten.[1] The importance of the firearms in Miami Vice is demonstrated by Galco International, which provided the holster used by Don Johnson on the show, naming its holster the Miami Classic.[4] Originally, James "Sonny" Crockett was to use a SIG Sauer P220 in .45 Auto[1] which is evident in the pilot episode.[3] He also carries a Detonics Pocket 9 as a backup, tucked in his rear waistband near the small of his back. But it was later decided that a more state-of-the-art gun was to be used by Don Johnson.[1] During the first season, he used a Bren Ten pistol carried in a Ted Blocker "Lifeline" shoulder holster rig.[4] Due to Don Johnson's dissatisfaction with the "Lifeline" rig, the Jackass Leather Company (later renamed Galco International)[4] "Original Jackass Rig"[4] shoulder holster rig was personally fitted for him by Rick Gallagher (President of Galco).[4] Finally the Galco "Miami Classic" shoulder holster was designed and used. The Bren Ten, manufactured by Dornaus & Dixon, was a stainless steel handgun notable as the first ever chambered in the powerful 10mm Auto caliber. The Bren Ten was originally manufactured as a two-tone weapon: the carbon steel slide was black oxide and frame was stainless steel. The model used in Miami Vice had a hard chromed matte finished slide so that it showed up better during night shots. The pistol used in the show was chambered in .45 ACP, as opposed to the standard 10mm Auto. After the Dornaus & Dixon company went out of business in 1986, the product placement contract went to Smith & Wesson [5][6] Starting with the third season, Sonny used a 2nd Generation series Smith & Wesson Model 645.[1] This was a full-sized 5-inch-barreled stainless steel service pistol in .45ACP. Galco Gunleather, formerly Jackass Leather Co., built a "Miami Classic" shoulder holster for the S&W 645 used. In the Galco Gunleather headquarters, there is a large display that contains the Miami Vice shoulder holster rig that Don Johnson wore, accompanied by an autographed photo of him. In late 1988 Smith & Wesson unveiled their new 3rd Generation Series of auto pistols, so for the last season Sonny's Model 645 was replaced with the new Smith & Wesson Model 4506. This pistol had 20+ design improvements including a one piece arched grip. Sonny's M 4506 can be seen in the beginning of the episode "Victim of Circumstance" when he is sitting in a cafe and looking at it.[7] Sonny also carried a .45 ACP DetonicsCombat-Master backup gun in an ankle holster on his left leg, replacing the Pocket 9 from the pilot episode. It can be seen in the bar scene shootout in the "Prodigal Son" episodes.[8] In the last series episode "Freefall" Crockett is placing what looks to be a S&W CS45 (compact alloy framed .45ACP) in his ankle holster.[9]

    This should give soccer fans something to cheer about......I guess. Current top soccer players make a fortune the average ones, eh. NFL, MLB, NBA are better on the averages. Our LeBron does ok for not going to college, oh yeah. 2017 season - For the fourth straight year, Real Madrid's Ronaldo is the world’s highest-paid soccer player. The $93 million he banked in the last year also bests the earnings of every active professional athlete worldwide. Of that, the reigning FIFA Player of the Year made $58 million from salary and bonus (before taxes) in the past year as he led his club in goal scoring on the way to a Spanish league title and back-to-back UEFA Championship wins. For perspective, his playing wages alone would rank him No. 3 on our list of soccer’s highest-paid. In comparison, LeBron James, the highest paid NBA player and oft-compared modern day Michael Jordan, made $31 million playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season. (Combined with his endorsements, he took home $86 million.) Average Salaries in the MLS.....some older numbers for the world comparison: The average annual salary for soccer players in the MLS for the 2013 season is $148,693.26. This average varies by player position. Goalkeepers earn an average of $85,296.48; defenders $109,119.61; midfielders $129,573.88; and forwards $251,805.21. League regulations, such as the designated player rule, affect overall averages. Designated players can make more than salary caps, making their salaries much higher than other players in the team. For example, the highest paid player in the MLS, Clint Dempsey, earns $4,913,004 per year, but the lowest salary in the league earns $31,125. Professional soccer player salaries depend on league and country regulations, among other things. Learn more about the average soccer player's salary here. Average Salaries in the NWSL The National Women’s Soccer League manages women's professional soccer in the U.S. This league only started in 2013 and, as yet, does not have average salary figures. Women's soccer in the United States follows the worldwide trend in terms of earnings -- female players do not typically have the earning capacity of male players. Salaries in the NWSL range from $6,000 to $30,000 per year. Professional soccer player salaries depend on league and country regulations, among other things. Learn more about the average soccer player's salary here. Average Soccer Salaries Outside the U.S. Soccer is a much bigger sport in other countries around the world, and players in foreign leagues have the potential to make a lot more money. For example, the average annual salary for top English Premier League players in 2012 was the equivalent of around $2,509,572 per year, although players in lower leagues earn far less. Individual salary rules set by clubs also affect league averages -- some pay far more than others. For example, players at Manchester City earned an average salary of $7,403,754 in the 2011/2012 season, and players at West Bromwich Albion made an average of $1,650,305 per year. Professional soccer player salaries depend on league and country regulations, among other things. Learn more about the average soccer player's salary here. Bonuses, Endorsements and Sponsorship Professional soccer players don't just make a basic salary, and many earn extra through bonuses, sponsorship deals and endorsements. The amount that players can make is typically dependent on how good or well-known they are, and world-class players may make more money from these deals than they earn in salary. For example, David Beckham's salary when he played for Los Angeles Galaxy was $6,500,000 per year. According to a report in Forbes, his total earnings from his five years in the MLS came to $255 million.

    While on that Subject

    Wow, very interesting sites indeed.
  20. The blue NYT cookbook is one of our absolute favorite cookbooks all kinds of really good recipes not really exotic or strange stuff. I got it at a 4 books 4 bucks site maybe 20 years ago. If I were starting a beginner usable collection today......Better Homes, Good Housekeeping, any of the Barefoot Contessa, the blue New York Times, a good casserole cookbook and a must Weber Real Grilling by Jamie Purvaiance to start. Decades ago when i was on the road I used to occasionally look up church festivals, fairs, small town book sales for the bubba's cookbooks, a goldmine of recipes. Our friends used to see our shelf of cookbooks and would buy them for us as gifts......we finally asked them to quit! Bon Appétit!

    Former Brown Winslow arrested for burglary

    Former NFL Star May Spend Life in Prison Sports 1 HOUR AGO NEWSER — NEWSER EDITORS Kellen Winslow Jr. is a former NFL Pro Bowl player who was once the highest-paid tight end in the league. He's also the son of a Hall of Famer. But prosecutors say Winslow is something else now: a kidnapper, rapist, and burglar. The 34-year-old has been jailed in Vista, Calif., and faces life in prison if convicted, reports the AP. Authorities accuse him of a crime spree that includes the kidnapping and rape of a 54-year-old homeless woman in March and a 59-year-old homeless woman in May. He is also accused of breaking into at least two homes and of exposing himself in a public place. Winslow played 10 seasons in the NFL, which prompts USA Today to float the possibility that CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, could play a role in his defense. One big problem with that is CTE can currently be diagnosed only after death, but a defense attorney says the symptoms associated with the condition—such as depression and dementia—could be raised. "The nature of the facts around this case raise huge red flags," says San Diego lawyer M. Dod Ghassemkhani. "There could be an underlying mental illness that has been untreated." It's possible such a defense could at least lessen the punishment that Winslow receives if convicted. He played in the league from 2004-13 with Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New England, and the New York Jets. (The question of CTE hovers over the case of another former NFL player who ended up in prison.)
