  1. Interesting thread. Maxman picked 13 games. A bit perverted, um, inverted! 2.5 games would have been a difficult number to arrive @. Nobody picked three!!! And to see Fiedler get smacked in the same game....amazing!
  2. I recall prior to the season starting, someone was talking about a Pennington injury pool. Was one actually ever begun? I'm sorry to hear that the competition for the Pats just got a bit easier int the AFC East. Now everyone will see how Edwards can manage the injury bug on this team.(Clearing throat).
  3. That looks more like a c#$%k ring! 8)

  5. I'm hoping Pats fans laugh all the way to the Super bowl...again! And win!!!!!!!...Again!

  7. I've been to one only once. I liked the food but I thought the service was poor. For the price, they should have waiters and waitresses. But I did stay at a Holiday Express last night!
  8. You really need to drive something reliable!

  10. Hot lookin' car bren! How is it on potholes?
  11. Ah yes, The Great One! Everyone passed on Brady multiple times! Even for BB, it wasn't a sure thing until the QB coach,( who is now deceased), lobbied for Brady to be drafted in the sixth round. Or something like that. 8) I believe What makes Brady good, is, his willingness to acknowledge weaknesses, improve upon those weaknesses, coupled with a strong desire to win. Bledsoe never bothered improving his game...and it shows! I hope Parcells keeps his boot right in his backside.

  13. Semantics. No action, jusy pretty words. Feds want new skyscraper rules By PAUL H.B. SHIN DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Federal investigators probing the World Trade Center collapse urged a sweeping overhaul of skyscraper building codes yesterday to make high-rises stronger and easier to evacuate. But don't expect to see the changes in the Freedom Tower or other new buildings going up at Ground Zero, experts said. After a three-year study, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued 30 recommendations, including better fireproofing so a blaze can burn itself out without warping critical structural beams. The guidelines also call for designing stairwells and elevators so a high-rise can be evacuated relatively quickly. "We believe that the recommendations are realistic and achievable," said lead investigator Shyam Sunder, who noted that the agency is not suggesting that skyscrapers be built to withstand the impact of fuel-laden jetliners. But critics said the recommendations are not specific enough and doubted whether they would be adopted into local building codes in time to influence the design of the 1,776-foot Freedom Tower. "The [building] code groups move at a snail's pace," said Glenn Corbett, a professor of fire sciences at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan and a member of the advisory committee to the probe. "The fact that NIST didn't hand them very specific code requirements is going to slow the process down," he said. But Sunder said the recommendations were deliberately kept broad so as not to stymie innovation in construction. Industry officials have estimated that adopting the recommendations would add 2% to 5% to the cost of a building. Critics were also skeptical that the Port Authority, which owns the 16-acre Trade Center site, would adopt the recommendations because the agency is exempt from local building codes. "This [report] is not going to make one iota of difference in the Freedom Tower or the new 7 World Trade Center," said Sally Regenhard of the Skyscraper Safety Campaign, who lost her firefighter son Christian on 9/11. Developer Larry Silverstein, who holds the lease on the Trade Center site, said he and his designers believe "that we have correctly anticipated the findings and recommendations contained in the NIST report, as well as recent developments in the New York City Building Code, in the design of 7 World Trade Center and Freedom Tower."

  15. Highway miles are much less damaging to a vehicle than the stop and go driving done within a city. Toyotas and Nissan trucks frequently last for a few hundred thousand miles if properly maintained. Rust usually takes its toll here in the Northeast before the engine fails. My Nissan is a five speed standard transmission so I have that much less crap to deal with as opposed to an automatic with the cooling lines, automatic fluid and filter, blah, blah ,blah....I'm not at all joking,I plan on getting at least two hundred thousand outta this truck.`

  17. I'm really expecting Reebok sales to plummet now! Folks seeing that commercial will think if you wear Reebok footwear, chances are pretty good you'll trip and fall, breaking your wrist. :?

  19. I was speaking about a virtual tool. There are different types of tools as you well know. Farm tools, such as myself come in various sizes and shapes, and serve a variety of functions. @ times i'm responsible for gelding stallions or denutting pigs! 8) Some hoes can serve for this purpose as well.

  23. I was responding to the SB picks Maxman. I can understand a Jets fan wanting to see the Pats fail~ it's the only chance you have considering the Headcoach you have teaching your players. Oops! I apologize; motivating your players!
