First Off - THANX Thumper for giving me a "home"...


2007 Draft Preview Kickoff - the Key Games Edition...

it’s just about that time again… yep, time to ”scout” the best players available in the 2007 NFL Draft… For me of course, it’s an excuse to watch some really great college football, and post it on the forums under the ruse of draft material… :D Interestingly, this seasons schedule is front-loaded, with some early battles of conference & national title importance…

I thought you might want to mark your calendars in advance for the ones that have special meaning to you (so you have time to make up some lame excuse to the sig-other :icon_mrgreen: ) - so here are my picks for the "games of the year"....

(I'll apologize right up front, if I've left your favorite team off the list, but you're certainly welcome to post all about it...)
Note: the ratings (xx) are from the latest preseason AP poll...

Thurs. 8/31/2006 - (33) South Carolina @ (UNR) Mississippi State - 5:00 PST ESPN - well, it's the first game and kickoff to a new season and an opportunity to see a very special WR in Sidney Rice - yes, O'reilly I like him too... :lol:

Ron thought I never read his draft thread until I dropped a few "F" bombs.

It makes for interesting reading but I have come to find out that he does not know wtf he is looking at most of the time (Jammer for instance) but then he makes up for it in Osgood. Go figure.

He is an enigma. Sort of like the JDog and Shamrock. Both enigmas but in Jdogs case, it is because of his garden and Shamrock is probably West Nile infected so their takes are from the other side of thought. Like where dead people think.........:icon_eek:

One of the best posts I have ever read Trumpie BUT it still can't hold a candle to Enormo's classic

"I once pooped on a cracker and took it to a fotune teller. She really didn't follow football but told me that the Toronto Blue Jays would win the Super Bowl. Three days later I was shacked up in Mexico City with a thirteen year old whore, high on LSD, when I heard on the radio that the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Switzerland Hitlers in the Superbowl. I vomited. The whore ate my feet."

We need to sign that guy.

Put a poison pill in the contract so the UT can't match our offer.

I'll talk to 12B to start hammering out a contract tomorrow at the tailgate.

I think I'm going to need a "Coyote thread" in the Asylum. Sometime in the next week, I'll be popping one, because it's killed a couple more cats and is getting brave (standing just outside the fence in the big pasture). Maybe post the pics of the carcass ....

Shoot the bastard between the eyes and post his carcass. Someone will photoshop it as a gift for leisure.
