Re: Least favorite commercials of all-time

ANY prescription drug ads! It's gotten to the point where I can't stand watching the evening network national newscasts, but the airwaves and cable waves are rife with them. Thank goodness for the remote. And I agree, the Progressive Insurance ads with Flo and her various personages and white-clad ...

Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

BRAVO - used to be high culture including opera, ballet, and foreign art house films. Now? The gay & lesbian channel. A&E - used to stand for Arts & Entertainment. Now? All "entertainment" and realty TV. History Channel - used to be what it said. Now? Reality TV whose signature shows have an extrao...

Re: Only the Lions

A high draft choice can't put the Lions over the top? OK - in many cases through the decades, that's true! But that hasn't always been the case. I would contend Calvin Johnson was a transformative draft pick, for example. If the Lions were even one or two slots lower on the draft board, he wouldn't...

Re: Only the Lions

Gotta love that clock management on the Lions' last possession. :lol That was one of the quickest 3-and-outs I've ever witnessed! Hey, I'm THRILLED the Lions lost; it helps their draft standing. The fact they lost via walk-off field goal (just like at Lambeaux) made it even better! The Lions end up...

Re: 50 Michigan movies

Another I didn't see listed was the very slight and low-key indie film from a few years ago called Highland Park . It starred Billy Burke, Danny Glover, and also Parker Posey in a supporting role, but in a featured billing. You see shots of the iconic but abandoned MacGregor Library as well as a few...

Re: 50 Michigan movies

Good list, and yes, I voted. One film not listed and I believe to be more "essential" than a few on the list is the quirky 2005 drama Winter Passing starring Ed Harris, Zooey Deschanel, and Will Farrell. It takes place predominately in upstate Michigan, though I believe was shot in New Jersey.

Actually I was thinking about the cities the bowls take place in, (especially smaller cities like Mobile, Albuquerque, Shreveport and Boise) not the schools themselves.
The mostly half-empty stands should tell you something in that regard.

Re: All Five Teams

Why not, when corporate sponsors are willing to foot the bill to feed our insatiable appetite for holiday season football on television, no matter how mediocre the teams. Goodness, a mere six wins and a .500 overall record is now the threshold for bowl eligibility. It's getting to be like the NHL pl...
