2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?.......eh, another star playing out the string in another city before fading away to the HOF. Happens a lot, Unitas (Chargers) plus others Namath, Rice, Montana, Emmitt.

3. A.  NHL Finals between Washington Capitols and Las Vegas Golden Knights.    Who wins?.......hmmmm Ovechkin vs Fleury? Why not VEGAS BABY!

My dad was in WWII and called back to Korea. He got a Bronze Star for some serious stuff in the Mediterranean before the invasions. Ended up on the much safer BB-62 The NEW JERSEY to end WWII and Korea. God bless them all.

I hope most of the players on the team who are still here go in with him in a show of unity.

2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?

Maybe they get Gates to come back just one more season?

3. A.  NHL Finals between Washington Capitols and Las Vegas Golden Knights.    Who wins?

Who cares?

B. Who ultimately wins the NBA Finals

Who's in it?:P

4. The World Cup begins in a couple of weeks.   Would you rather watch that or have to smell a cabbage fart?

I'd rather "watch".................Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Good friends from my A&M days same class, same Army ROTC Co. in the Corps of Cadets. RIP Jim Cartwright and Michael "Steve" Mullin.  KIA Vietnam 1971 & 1972 respectively.

My Dad's best friend "Joe" lost over the English Channel as a pilot for the Army Air Corps in WW II. I never knew him but my Dad always mentioned him on Memorial Day.

And every year I send an email on Memorial Day to let my friend Linda, a Gold Star Mother, know that I will not forget her son killed in the Iraq War in 2003.

1.  How big of a puss do you think  Hue Jackson will come out looking at his "Jump in the Lake" event?

Not at all. It was an expression. No one sane is jumping in the lake in January. He'd die.

 

2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?

I think the Chargers want to push through while they have Rivers and the clock is ticking. NE feels like Drama Central right now.

 

3. A.  NHL Finals between Washington Capitols and Las Vegas Golden Knights.    Who wins?

Caps

B. Who ultimately wins the NBA Finals

Cavs

 

4. The World Cup begins in a couple of weeks.   Would you rather watch that or have to smell a cabbage fart?

I don't ever want to smell that. I'd watch the ladies first.

 

5.  This is Memorial Day weekend here in the USA.   Have you ever had a relative or friend  killed or injured in war?    Feel free to make whatever tribute you choose.

My Uncle died in Normady on D-Day.

My Dad, all of my uncles and both of my grandfathers served.

But they were all liberal democrats, so they didn't really love their country.

What a crazy world we live in.

While he should have done it in the winter, I guess June is better than never.  But I do expect him to act like a big weenie over the whole thing.

 

2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?

It would tell me that Gates does not want to come back and play...and that Gronk has had enough of BB...or that BB has had enough of him.  I would like to see it happen actually.

 

3. A.  NHL Finals between Washington Capitols and Las Vegas Golden Knights.    Who wins?

I would like to see the Caps win.   They have been banging on the door for some time now........and it is purely bovine excrement that a team and a city should win a championship in their very first year of operation.

B. Who ultimately wins the NBA Finals

Obviously, hopefully the Cavs pull it out.  If not them I would want the Rockets to win.  Sick of GS....but to be honest, if GS and Boston were playing I would prefer GS. Fuyuck a bunch of Kyrie, and the Celtics...and their arrogant stupid fans have more than their share in the past. 

 

4. The World Cup begins in a couple of weeks.   Would you rather watch that or have to smell a cabbage fart?

Well....I guess I don't need to smell farts.   I may peek in at times to see some of it.  As far as any "rooting" interest....I would be all in on Iceland...if I cared much.

 

5.  This is Memorial Day weekend here in the USA.   Have you ever had a relative or friend  killed or injured in war?    Feel free to make whatever tribute you choose.

My father served and came through WWII OK. He was in Europe.   As did my Father-in-law, but he was in the Pacific.  I had 3 uncles that served in either the RAF or with the British Army/Navy....not sure which.   All came through OK.   I had no relatives that served in Vietnam.  A few classmates from HS did...but as far as I know...all came home safe.  As far as Iraq/Afghanistan, only my nieces husband served there, but he came home fine.

However,  My Grandfather was a Civilian Engineer in the British Admiralty. He was killed by a Nazi bomb in Portsmouth England during a Luftwaffe raid.  And if anyone in this country has sympathy for any Nazi Motherfuhuckers....including that big orange POS we got running things now......we got a  blood feud going on.

1. Do people still care about this?

2. I think Gronk is approaching "running on empty" time. He can't stay healthy, which is a shame, because he's still a helluva player.

3. A. I think Las Vegas pulls one of the biggest shockers in pro sports history and wins the title in their expansion season.

B. Golden State Warriors

4. Cabbage farts, for the win.

5. My uncle returned home from Vietnam with two purple hearts and a drug habit. My grandmother's cousin was a member of the 101st Airborne who parachuted into Normandy the night before the D-Day morning beach invasion, and served in the Battle of the Bulge. He survived the war, but the happy-go-lucky kid before the war came home a dark, troubled man. He became an alcoholic, abusive man, and within five years of returning home his wife would shoot him dead because she feared for her life.

I'll just answer 5 - One of the greatest men I've had the honor to know was my father in law. He passed recently and we discovered this story about him. I'll miss him every time I fish, hunt shrooms, cook out and watch the Browns. 

Fiery 5-Hour Battle

"I've Got A Company Full of Heroes"

CAMP EVANS, Vietnam - A battered 101st Airborne Div. unit which fought North Vietnamese for five explosive hours Wednesday morning at and on Fire Support Base Henderson, 45 miles northwest of Hue, returned here Friday. Although the soldiers say they lost more than the NVA, their captain said flatly, "I've got a company full of heroes."

Their captain is James E. Mitchell, 25. Mitchell and his men Friday recounted the story of an hours-long attempt amid fiery and fog-shrouded death to rescue a reconnaissance element trapped between the NVA and an exploding ammunition dump. Nearly all the while, the NVA was fighting all around the hill.

From the time the battle started, according to Mitchell, he had been unable to make contact with the reconnaissance element guarding the far end of the hill. And when the fighting began, he said, he told S. Sgt. Robert Nichol to get men and go down to find them.

Nichol, a veteran of heavy battle on the so-called "Re-Up Hill" and on Fire Support Base Granite during the past month, said he was on guard when the enemy touched off flares on his side of the hill. By the time he was ready to move down to contact the guards at the far end, Nichol said, the ammo dump straddling the hill in between was on fire and rounds were popping off.

As Nichol tells it, he told his captain, "there's a big fire down there. You can't imagine how big it is."

Still, Nichol moved his men toward the area. He pulled them back, he said, when he saw a pallet of ammo smoldering. Minutes later, he said, the pallet blew.

Then, Nichol said, they tried another approach. The explosions from the ammo dump had been, as Nichol and others described them, like an earthquake. They said one pilot in a chopper overhead radioed that one blast, almost blew him out of the sky.

One of the men Nichol took with him was Sgt. Joe Waage, a former dice-dealer in a Reno, Nev., Casino. Waage had been in Vietnam a week and he said he couldn't believe what he was seeing.

They said at one pointer a soldier, "a big farmer" who they knew only as "Silent Sam,". ran up dangerously close to the roaring fire and dragged to safety a soldier who was screaming that his foot had been blown off.

It was several hours, Nichol and Waage said, before they were able to get around the searing fire. They said that as they tried to get around the flames, risking the explosions, they could hear the trapped soldiers calling for help, yelling "GIs, GIs."

The first man we saw," one of them said, "was a recon medic and he was holding his head with part of it gone."

Despite his wounds, the said, the medic was tending to another wounded soldier.

The medic was telling the more seriously wounded soldier about his home town, trying to keep him out of shock. "I'll tell you," Waage said, "a medic is the greatest thing in the world to see."

Just as great, they said, were dustoff medevac pilots who landed their chopper amid exploding rounds and incoming fire to rescue the men at the end of the hill. The recon element, they said, took 100 per cent casualties. Had it not been for the dustoff, and perhaps for the rescue through the fire, it might have been 100 per cent killed in action.

Waage said he couldn't tell what made men do what they did. Silent Sam, one of the said, "could just as easily have said he didn't hear anything." But they said he acted on what he heard. That Waage explained is why he himself acted. " You just had to hear them calling," Waage said.

Takos.jpg

This event took place May 6, 1970, rather than in April, and the individual is known as more than "Silent Sam." His name is Richard Takos. I was with him that night. Someone ran over to our hole, which was right on the edge of the ammo dump, and asked for help carrying the wounded soldier mentioned. With my heart full of terror, I said, "I'll go," but I had no sooner said it than finger jumped out of the hole saying, "Nah, I'll do it," without a quiver in his voice. I saw a book listing all the recipients of the DSC in Nam. I was disappointed to not see his name there. - Dave Schmidli

I lost a few friends in 'Nam with several more injured, most notable being Pvt Freddie Hemphill. I will never forget Freddie telling me he didn't think he would make it & me telling him he couldn't think that way. He died within a month when he stepped on a mine while on patrol. RIP old buddy.

That "friend"  Joe  didn't happen to be Joe Kennedy Jr.?   What you describe sounds just like what his fate was.

No-he was my dad's roommate at A&M. Perhaps my older brother can remember his last name. They had volunteered to become pilots together, but my dad washed out when they discovered he was color blind. Ironically he was one hellofashot with every small arms weapon the Army had, so he trained troops in marksmanship with multiple weapons. He always felt bad about it because he had talked Joe into becoming a pilot with him and Joe was the one who paid the price.

3.  Las Vegas  (drive Ovechkin crazy)

5.  My 'opa' - living in the Dutch East Indies with his family (dad , oma uncle and 2 aunts) As a gentleman salon business owner in Batavia - was taken as POW when the Japanese occupied the nation. Collected men up first (before women and children) as an able bodied man (threat - as were others) to internment camps and later to on towards SE ASia to help build the Burma RR. He survived that and returned to Indonesia and meet up with the rest of his (our) family who themselves were survivors of interment camps of over 2 years . Losing everything and having to start over in Holland - because the native Indonesians wanted the Dutch out, had even more struggle re-establishing in Holland who were also trying to rebuild themselves.... He lived til 59 years of age - but his honor is showing his captors by surviving the most brutal treatment those POWs received and a history that the world has little info about.

<< Hue is a very amiable and well-like guy. His football record has nothing to do with his interpersonal skills and character. Self-deprecation is a tool that more than one savvy person has used to build momentum upon, and improve public opnion. The general maturity level of Browns fans is at such a low level that when it comes to football, seldom do people here actually see things as they are. Hue Jackson will have people laughing with him, not at him. He will benefit greatly and pull this publicity stunt off with style and grace. This is a win-win for Hue. It will forever give him a new nickname or association that broadcasters, coaches and fans will talk about for ever more.>>

2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?

<<Don't give a fauhk. Who cares? What impact does this have on anything?>>

5.  This is Memorial Day weekend here in the USA.   Have you ever had a relative or friend  killed or injured in war?    Feel free to make whatever tribute you choose.

I was born in 1954. I was the first group of young men in many years not to face the draft. Don't really want to elaborate about it, but I knew several who lost their lives, and several more who were physically destroyed. Terrible thing we did to our young men.

I hope Jane Fonda dies tonight.

My Uncle died in Normady on D-Day.

My Dad, all of my uncles and both of my grandfathers served.

But they were all liberal democrats, so they didn't really love their country.

What a crazy world we live in.

 

Way to insult your father and grandfather you simpleton.

Todays liberal democRAT  is not your father's or grandfathers liberal Democrat.

Your grandfather wouldn't have been an advocate for tranny men having the right to use the little girls room,  nor would he approve of the damaging "everyone gets a trophy" self esteem movement.

Nor would have he called Bruce Jenner "courageous". He would have abhorred the policies of Barak Obama and would have  and loved Trump.

He most likely would  disapprove of multimillionaire football players refusing to stand for the anthem.

Your grandfather didn't come home spat upon by liberals, as did the Vietnam era vets,  and wouldn't have approved of open borders, sanctuary cities, and been an Islamic terrorist sympathizer....lest we forget super libtard Rosie O'Donnell  "terrorists are mothers and fathers too"..

Yes, the liberal extremists do hate America. These bastards indoctrinated by liberal academia are taught that America is not exceptional, that she is the reason third world countries exist, and that our sovereignty is illegitimate by its very founding.

Your father and grandfather fought for right of a-hole liberals to exist. Thank them for that.

Your father would be telling you to grow up son.

This is the most insulting post I have ever read in my life.

What do you know about my family? My father lived long enough to vote for John Kerry and he was abhorred at how how his service record was denigrated. While he never voted for him, my Dad respected John McCain and would be disgusted at how he, and his service, is dismissed by current republicans. He thought Trump was a "jackass" and I'm sure he is rolling in his grave at what is going on now, I'm sure he took a few extra spins when DT lashed out at the Muslim parents of a deceased US Soldier.

My Mother shared the same ideologies as my Father and she is still alive and spitting fire at the current administration. She voted for Obama, she voted for Hillary, and I can tell you with 100% conviction, my Vet Father would have too.

No, my Grandafathers weren't spit on, but they did instill their families with christian values: helping those in need, treating everyone with respect, opening your arms to refugees ... whether or not they speak the same language or practice the same religion or have the same skin color as you. They fought for freedom of speech, freedom of the press and fought to give us all an education and an opportunity for the American dream, and to make our own way in the world with our own ideals.

How dare you tell me how my family felt, or would feel? My Uncle Eb passed away last year at 91, he fought on the front lines in Germany and he would bitchslap you  from his wheelchair for talking about my family like that.

It doesn't bother me that others see the world, and our Country, different. Republicans, Democats, Independents, Seniors, Millennials, we are all Americans, and we all want what we think is best for ourselves, our families and our Country. I can't imagine insulting someone's memory of their family because they didn't vote the way I voted.

You can disagree with my politics all you want, I rarely, if ever, bring it up on a football board. But if you go after my family ... we have a problem.

I used to mess with you because you're a Steeler fan ... just a game. Game over, son, it's personal now.

Zombo

--Uncle Eb watched his buddy die in his arms in WWII, he raised a family, ran a successful business and he voted Democrat until the day he died in 2017. Did he need to grow up?

Not nearly as big of a pussy as the Head Coach in Pittsburgh was for trying to alienate and guilt the ONLY veteran of war on his roster that put his life on the line to defend our freedoms by honoring the flag and the National Anthem.  He threw that kid right under a freight train in the media after the entire team stood in the tunnel thinking of alibis to dress that shitt up while watching him show the only class that was possible. I don't care what color my skin is - IF I SUCKED that bad at my job while making millions of $ in a leadership capacity - I know I'd feel a lot more thankful to the US Military for making my opportunity possible. You'd think a beneficiary of the Rooney-Rule where it was created would be a better spokesman/role model for those of the same race thinking they have awful opportunities with 6-8 figure salaries. Of course an allegedly defensive minded Tomlin would fire the OC after losing a playoff game 45-42. There's my biggest HC brat and pussy - Mike Tomlin.   

2. I hear rumors that Rob Gronkowski could get traded to the Chargers.   What do you think about that?

I think this a perfect place to thank all our troops past and present for putting their lives on the line for us.  People have died for us and/or watched someone else die doing this while others that served our country have been willing to do that.  I appreciate all of you in here that have served our country. 

3. A.  NHL Finals between Washington Capitols and Las Vegas Golden Knights.    Who wins?

Washington.

B. Who ultimately wins the NBA Finals

I hope Cleveland does so I'd rather jinx Golden State by saying they will win. 

4. The World Cup begins in a couple of weeks.   Would you rather watch that or have to smell a cabbage fart?

😄  Whatever lingers less my man...

Way to insult your father and grandfather you simpleton.

Todays liberal democRAT  is not your father's or grandfathers liberal Democrat.

Your grandfather wouldn't have been an advocate for tranny men having the right to use the little girls room,  nor would he approve of the damaging "everyone gets a trophy" self esteem movement.

Nor would have he called Bruce Jenner "courageous". He would have abhorred the policies of Barak Obama and would have  and loved Trump.

He most likely would  disapprove of multimillionaire football players refusing to stand for the anthem.

Your grandfather didn't come home spat upon by liberals, as did the Vietnam era vets,  and wouldn't have approved of open borders, sanctuary cities, and been an Islamic terrorist sympathizer....lest we forget super libtard Rosie O'Donnell  "terrorists are mothers and fathers too"..

Yes, the liberal extremists do hate America. These bastards indoctrinated by liberal academia are taught that America is not exceptional, that she is the reason third world countries exist, and that our sovereignty is illegitimate by its very founding.

Your father and grandfather fought for right of a-hole liberals to exist. Thank them for that.

Your father would be telling you to grow up son.

I didn't realize when I asked for A tribute to people who have served this country, that I would be inviting a pile of ignorant stupid bullshite

Some people are so blinded by politics, and I'm talking about both sides, that they will stop at nothing to be heard, whether it is degenerating a Memorial Day Tribute or just ruining everything for everybody all the time. If you are always about politics on social media, I stop following you.

Here, we keep the football side apolitical. Stan's Republican, I'm Democrat, I don't even know the politics of the other moderators, nobody cares, nobody notices, we kept it to football and toss the political stuff to Steve on the political board. Steve's a good friend, he leans to the right, I lean to the left, we don't care, we both appreciate freedom of ideas ... We just try to keep the non-football ideas to one of the other boards we have set up so we can keep this smooth here on the football side.

We, of course, give a certain leeway on threads like your Survey and various other offseason discussions ... some times it is just good for us to talk about "stuff" ... like we are all at a tailgate or a backyard BBQ. Even an occasional remark about the political climate ... I think I make one about every five to ten years. But there is always that one guy who takes things too far, that his opinions are more important than yours, he has decided that he knows more than you and he's not about to shut up about it ... Is anybody surprised he's a Steeler fan?

Not surprised at all.

When we're in a thread about Memorial Day and WunDumPhuck has to dis-respect the story you shared - it's not politics blinding him. It's the cubed root of ignorance. 

For a guy that's so terrified about liberals threatening all of his rights, he's not giving himself enough credit for giving people reasons to feel freedom of speech can be very overrated.

He's a Steelers fan and a Trumpflake.

It's a perfect storm of stupidity.

I feel like I'm in one of those Snickers commercials because I'm still waiting for evidence he knows the difference between the 1700s and 2018.  It's gonna be a while...

you dish the ignorant stupid bullshite out all the time, you like to think you are "busting chops"....you just think you shouldn't get it in return because you are so arrogant.

Memorial Day ,though, isn't the right day to do that, I think.

   A friend of mine was in Special Forces - his best friend on the team, on a successful mission, was killed - he carried his friend back out and back to the pickup point, to the helo that picked them up.

That is what Memorial Day is about.... sadly, it's honoring all the Soldiers who lost their lives in military service to our country over all our years.

Arrogant?   I think you conflate intelligence with arrogance. Understandable. (To you, spewing a doctrine of hate probably does not seem ignorant and stupid. It is the epitome of those terms)

Fair enough.

Very Good.

  You're rightsies, Glipsies. It IS understandable - your behavior warrants the term "arrogance", and you seem to be a little bit intelligent outside of that. You have no idea what seems and not seems to other people.

See, THAT is your arrogance problem, methinks.. Napoleon much?

Smart people always seem arrogant to dumb people.  Case in point.

Open minded people always seem arrogant to closed minded people.  

Understanding people always seem arrogant to hateful people.

So..if being smart, open minded and understanding seems to you to be arrogant, wonderful.  I will wear it as a badge of honor.  Keep it coming.
