I wonder how severe the Carson Palmer injury is--although we know Stanton can win games. Bruce Arians continues to work his magic--yet, somehow I feel the sports stations still won't be talking enough about how good the Cards are. Oh well....
I'm not sure that they ARE that good. The schedule has been fairly soft so far, and Denver demolished us. On Stanton: He's just like Palmer. Average QB.

You better hold off on that wink Garlic--the Seahawks apparently woke up in the 2nd half...
I jinxed myself!  :-[ But my Cards are having their usual 4th quarter.  :)

This has been a strange day of football & now it looks like the Saints are about to go down--and they never lose in the Dome. Good grief...
They were fucked by the refs!!! (that offensive pass interference call was bullshit!)  >:( >:( >:(

And of course, when we talk about the Steelers putting the boots to the Jets, what happens--80 year old Mike Vick and the J-E-T-S jump out to a 10-0 lead. You gotta love the NFL....   :o

I doubt that anyone outside of the city of Cleveland had Thursday's big upset special. I'm expecting my Steelers and future Hall of Famer, Big Ben to stomp all over the Jets today--anything less would be uncivilized...    [cool]
Hey Buddy! I don't live in Cleveland!  [cool] And remind me where I remember that "civilized" line from a De-odorent?

And there you go again...going out on a limb picking The Steelers over the Jets! I'm gonna really go out on a limb...the fucking Rams will beat my Cardinals IN Arizona.  :-[

Big Nose Kate - - what woman wouldn't love to have that nickname? :-\  She was a Hungarian immigrant, just for information's sake.

Sven, your entry reminds me of the historical novel,  Little Big Man, by Thomas Berger.  He died this summer, and left the market wide open for a third novel following the sequel to LBM, just in case you're looking for a pastime.  :)
Little Big Man was my favorite movie western for about 20 years until Dances with Wolves joined it. Tell me about the sequel, Sig...I never heard of it.  :-\

Nov 8th, 1847 Bram Stoker is born in Dublin. A sickly child, Stoker amused himself by writing. He wrote several tales of horror before striking gold with Dracula.

1900 Margaret Mitchel is born in Atlanta. Inspired by stories and conversations with older relatives she's inspired to write her great novel. Slaving over it for seven years she became frustrated and threw the gobs of manuscript into a box. A friend read it and coaxed her to complete the work.

1887 John Henry "Doc" Holliday is also born in Georgia. A cousin of Mattie Holliday, who was the inspiration for her 3rd cousin, Margaret Mitchel, for the character of Melanie Hamilton in GWTW.

Known as a scholar, dentist, gambler, drunkard and blood thirsty killer, he was mostly just a gambling drunk that preferred booze to Laudanum for his TB cough. His friend, Bat Masterson, started his "blood thirsty killer" legend with exaggerated published stories, which by association also made him a "legend".

Young Doc

He did appear in about six to eight gun related scrapes, but he rarely hit anything. He was deadly, of course, when his foe was sitting 4 feet away at the poker table. His only absolutely confirmed killing was of a man he stabbed to death in front of a room full of patrons. The fool jumped to his feet to clear his gun, but the Doc had his pig sticker in hand under the table.

Older, emaced Doc, around six feet tall, 120 lbs

If ever there was a fearless man in the Old West, it was Holliday. He carried 3 guns and a knife, knew well that he was dying and flat didn't give a shit. His only love in life was his common law wife of many years, Big Nose Katie Elder.

Just about everybody's favorite Holliday portrayer in film was my Huckleberry, Val Kilmer. Talk about lousy casting casting before Val, he was preceded by Samson himself, the hulking Victor Mature, and Ullysses/Sparticus himself, virile Kirk Douglas!

To everyone who posts on this thread:  thanks!  I enjoy seeing all these images.  :)
Coincidentally, the movie that your Keaton/Chaplin still, Limelight, will be shown on TCM this afternoon.  ;)

Sydney was a good one... I wondered if I had seen her in anything, and a search revealed that she was the "Jungle Julia" chick in that Grindhouse movie!

I remember her mother, Joanna Shimkus, from a '70s flick where Poitier played a gangster. (badly)

Nov 7th, 1980 Steeve McQueen dies in Mexico, aged 50


1991 Magic Johnson stuns the B-Ball world announcing that he had "attained" HIV. He's had it for damn near 25 years and he still looks better than me.

1940 The new Tacoma Bridge, designed to resist 120 MPH winds was blown to pieces by a 42 MPH gust.

I have read a number of times about him.  With $30 trillion in CONcast bucks, the Phillies could make a major bid for him, and Ruin Tomorrow Jr. could even make the offer en Espanol, but undoubtedly the 76ers would have a better chance of winning the NBA title in the next 3 years.

Yeah, he'll head north -- right up I-95 to the Skankees who will say to him, "Hey, yo!  Bring us your best offer, and we'll triple it."  Or the Cah-lee-forn-ya teams will tout the Spanish majority there.
Ain't it the truth! I'm thinking the Angels, with a diminishing David Freese on 3B will open the vault (or in their case, the petty cash drawer) to get the kid.

Mighty close, wasn't it?  The 76ers almost did the unthinkable last night.  They don't face the Lakers until March 22nd and 30th, so that perfect matchup of zilches probably won't take place.
LOL...let's hope not. The Rockets pulverized the Champs last night. Popovich is nuts. Sitting his two old stars 4 games into the season! The Western Conference's top 3 teams are still undefeated...amazin'! Are the Grizzlies for real?

In Stooge short remakes, did Vernon Dent ever play any character originally played by Bud Jamison?
Holy moly! What a question....I can't answer it, but there's folks on here that can, I'm sure.

The Phillies of Philadelphia may have some relief on the way.  A super duper prospect is heading North!

November 6th, 1861 Jeff Davis is formerly elected as the president of the Confederate States of America, one year to the day after Lincoln was hired for HIS new job. Also from Kentucky, and bearing an odd resemblance to Abe, the similarities stopped there. Davis graduated from West Point and served in the Black Hawk wars in 1832 and fought and was wounded in the Mexican War 10 years later.

Cartoon ran by the NY Illustrated News depicting Lincoln as the towering benefactor and Davis the cowering, traitorous midget

His first wife was the daughter of General Zachery Taylor. After military service he was appointed to the Mississippi senate and later served as Secretary of War under President Franklin Pierce. After his election to lead the South he wrote  "Upon my weary heart was showered smiles, plaudits, and flowers, but beyond them I saw troubles and thorns innumerable."

Cavs lose again--I wonder how great "home" is looking for Lebron right now...   >:D
Do you know who led the team in assists with 6? The Cavs! The whole team totaled SIX! Looks like it will be months before that team jells. And out in La-La Land, Kobe must be pulling his hair out. The worst Laker team I've ever seen. He needs to get the fuck outa' there because he's too old to wait for them to get good again.

Don't be surprised if you see he and Phil Jackson get back together again in NY....soon!  ;)

Further investigation has proved fruitful. Gabrielle Reese, who I remember from Gattica is a whopping 6'3"!

She also knocks beanpole Famke Jansen out of 1st place in shoe size by half an inch. (11 and a half)

Gabby's pretty shapely for her height and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen from Jamaica!

Aisha Tyler who I first saw as the host of Talk Soup is 6' even.

Kristen Johnston, who I remember from Third Rock From the Sun is also 6' even

This one was a complete surprise from an earlier era, equaling Ingrid Bergman's 5' 10"

It's Liz Sheridan!

Foreman knocks out Michael Moorer to regain the title at age 45. Sadly, it's the last heavyweight fight that I can remember watching.

1968 And in a less interesting contest...

Nixon defeats Humphrey by a cunt hair and is elected president

I think the Fins can beat Detroit--but I wouldn't bet actual money on it...   ;)
Sure they can...but they won't  ;)

Bump from previous page: (I don't want Payne to miss it!)

Inspired by Paul Payne, how about we pick the winners of this week's more compelling match-ups, starting with the Thursday nite Ohio bowl. (winners in BOLD)

Cleveland@ (5-3)       
Cincinnati    (5-2-1)

Kansas City@  (5-3)   
Buffalo           (5-3)

Miami@      (5-3) I just don't think the Fish can keep it up!   
Detroit     (6-2)

San Francisco@  (4-4)   
New Orleans    (4-4)

Atlanta@       (2-6)
Tampa Bay  (1-7)

If you have an upset pick in mind, add it! (I have none this week)
