Y'all enjoying yourselves?

I did watch the Vuelta A Espana today, would that count as "normal"?

Americas Cup here. New Zealand came this close to having their boat go over when their sail didn't rotate on a turn.

Hey The Vuelta! Horner's doing okay for an old guy eh?

Nice to see Euskadi being rescued. Always fun to see the orange racing livery.

I note your "growing combativeness", TDale. You are angry about something.

My original contention was that simply posting a link with no comment is "trolling", and I stand behind that. If you actually give a damn about any of it, you'd take a position. You're just trying to stir up trouble and "get a response" - are you really that desperate?

Sometimes insults are not deserved. In your case - esp. lately - I don't think you could say you haven't generated the response yourself. If you're really that troubled, get help. Professional help.

Unlike some on the right I can do two things at once, watch football on one monitor and make political observations on another....

On that note, the Seahawks fans must be guided by the Republican strategy of... if you can't win fair and square, tilt the playing field in your favor :p

Pro ball is OK. But the college game is much, much more interesting.

Anyone see Wisconsin get jobbed by some really bad officiating?

Any my Northwestern Wildcats are showing that even smart, nerdy kids can play ball, even without getting paid. Keep an eye on them in the B1G.

Uh, HJ, check his post again.

He was saying that college ball IS pro ball, and that it is as boring as other pro ball.

Just say'n.

Was a very funny comment though, to some of us.
