  2. Kinda your own walk up music, like ballplayers have.
  3. I don't know if you can get them streaming now, but I would love to be able to re-watch all the Northern Exposure series. Such great writing. Loved the show
  4. Hank Aaron, Warren Spahn and Eddie Mathews.... 3 HOFers.
  5. Dak giveth and Dak taketh away. In my HSN league, my opponent played him as his qb, and could very well lead to me winning this week. In my other league, I started him and will very well lead to me losing.
  6. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/college-basketball-starts-in-50-days-so-here-are-50-things-to-know-about-the-2021-22-season/ And can we change this thread title to 21-22, please mods?
  7. So, are you the guy from Evansville who doesn’t vote for Bishop Luers as 1st ranked in the polls?😁
  8. Here’s hoping you finally realize that no one cares about the Smellermakers or your opinion on this forum
  9. Alrighty then. Always enjoy the astuteness of a Purdue educated person
  10. Better things to do than follow your posts. Finally had a minute and saw the Purdue drivel.
  11. Really, dude. No one cares. Why do you continue to think anyone here does?
  12. I will be 64 in 11 days. I cannot imagine a 70+ year old ever taking on a Bad Brad persona. This guy is full of it
  13. Only was able to see snippets as I was on the ice curling 🥌. Multiple opinions in the preseason that we could very well be better than last year, but our record would be worse. Starting to think that the talking heads who said that are spot on
  14. Carroll has a quarterback who has committed to A Div 2 school. He is pretty good
  15. Carroll pounds Dwenger 45-21 Leo over East Noble 40-32 Snider edges Homestead 17-14
  16. Up NE, three big games. - Game of the week-Leo v East Noble. Two top 5 ranked teams playing for de facto NE8 conference title - Carroll v Bishop Dwenger. Loser probably eliminated from SAC title race. Dwenger trying to show it can play with the big schools of the conference - Snider v Homestead. Another elimination game
  17. In December of 1943, Lieutenant John "Jocko" Thompson of Beverly, Massachusetts, was on the heights of Italy's Mount Sammucro with a battalion of the U.S. 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Battling Germans on the long road to capture Rome, the 504th had parachuted into Italy back in September, and now found itself clinging to a rocky mountain peak in the Apennine Range, trading rifle fire and mortar rounds with the enemy on a neighboring peak. During a heavy artillery bombardment on December 13th, thirteen of Thompson's comrades were knocked out of action, and then a bullet found him.... The round smashed into his chest, knocking him backwards and stunning him. But when he was checked for wounds, none were found. The bullet - most likely spent - had struck the Army spoon he had in the pocket of his jump jacket. This wasn't a strange place for it - to conserve weight, many paratroopers left their mess kits behind when they made a combat jump, taking with them only their spoon, which was the most pragmatic utensil in the kit. Lieutenant Thompson went on to lead troops in Operation Market Garden in 1944, parachuting into Holland, survived the Battle of the Bulge in December of that year, and later served in the occupation force in Germany. During the war he was wounded twice (and carried shrapnel in his body for the rest of his life), and received two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and a Silver Star for heroism in combat. When he received his discharge after the war's end, he returned to his pre-war profession: playing professional baseball in the Red Sox farm system before being called up to the Majors in 1948 to pitch for the Philadelphia Phillies.
