Re: TCM

Right now I have lost TCM from my cable line up. My cable bill has not changed and no other channels have been removed beside that one. I have Comcast Pontiac. Does anyone out there have this problem? (It's not a big hassle but I like old movies.) My friend in Sterling Heights, also with Comcast as...

Re: Proof yet again that the Tigers' coaching & training staffs are inept as hell!!

A marvelous example of a veteran pitcher reinventing himself to extend a career. I congratulate him!

Favorite Act at the Original Woodstock

Even if you weren't there during the '69 Summer of Love, it was documented in a popular film and two top-selling albums. Many of the performances have become iconic and have reverberated through the decades. As tough as it may be to decide, is there one act from the original Woodstock festival that ...

US-31 is a very long road, with varying degree of traffic. Could they be more specific? The freeway portions? The divided section between Holland and Grand Haven? The two laned section?
With the lake effect winter weather, I'd guess the entire length of US-31 can be hazardous.

As much as I would like to see both teams tonight disqualified, this is the only game of the year I will root for MIchigan State.
Ohio State by 4 tds.
I was close!
We both know that wasn't THE game. :mrgreen:

Re: Monday Night Football vs. Thursday Night Football

All the games are certainly of interest to fantasy team owners, but I must agree that the MNF broadcasts must utilize ABC/ESPN's C-team. That gal doing the PBP in the Lions season-opening debacle last year only made the whole experience more puke-worthy. :barf

Re: Ginger Baker dies at 80

I've heard too many acquaintances say Ginger Baker is/was the greatest drummer in rock. I beg to differ, but that's another topic for another time. I'm also not certain Baker was carrying a full load upstairs, but he made his mark in both rock and jazz circles and was probably responsible for "popul...

Re: Ausmus canned

I just read about the Ausmus firing and gotta echo it opens the door for Maddon. I'll just repeat what I said on the other thread, Ausmus probably belongs in some team's front office.

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I previously predicted it would go down to the wire and our boys hung with 'em in all facets of the game. The turnovers, the bizarro calls, and especially that uber-bizarro 101-yard fumble return were simply yesterday's chapter in the Curse of Bobby Layne. :hat

Re: Brad Ausmus & Joe Maddon

With Maddon gone, I'm now wondering if the Cubbies will be inking Castellanos to a lucrative long-term deal; it was quite obvious he loved hitting in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. As for Ausmus and the Angels, the team suffered the tragedy of Tyler Skaggs, lost the "best player in baseball...

Re: Michigan football - predictions

I’m a realist. Beating Rutgers- which is only in the Big Ten because of the New York City market- means nothing. It should be expected for a program of Michigan’s stature. It does not change my opinion that Harbaugh needs to go. This beatdown led to Rutgers firing their coach The comments on this s...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

Wow, apparently Stafford really is hurting, and not just a little bit. :shock: Here's hoping the Lions can generate an effective running game and absorb a goodly amount of time-of-possession.
