  1. ummm wow... too much "captain" last night :bag:

    Chicago got the nickname "windy city" because of all the Jazz being played there. Or so the story goes...

    You are correct sir. It is, in fact, not that windy there. The windy reference comes from this:

    The power of the name lies in the metaphorical use [of] "windy" for "talkative" or "boastful." Chicago politicians early became famous for long-windedness, and the Midwstern metropolis's central location as a host city for political conventions helped cement the association of Chicago with loquacious politicians. Their football team's inflated record against the dregs of the NFL has them [the fans and denizens of the city] underlying the nickname with double meaning.:P

  2. Once when I was serving in Korea during the war, I got sick and tired of having liver and fish for an 11-day stretch, Driven near to insanity, I started a riot in the mess tent. Me and my best friend, Trapper John then ordered spare ribs and sauce from the best place he had ever had them, in Chicago. I think the place was called Adam's Ribs. Trapper called a woman he spent a weekend with to pick up the ribs, and then they get choppered in. Unfortunately, right as we were sitting down to eat them, wounded arrived and we were forced to postpone sinking our teeth into our beloved ribs until later. Longest surgery session I ever spent I swear.

    Wait a minute - I didn't serve in Korea. This must have been a MASH episode then I guess...:)

    Chicago's alright in my book. A little windy but alright.

  3. Didn't even think of that, why not let the opposing team know on Sunday morning? If I am the opposing team knowing this info now then I put in some serious blitz packages. Green will need time to adjust to game speed and the game could be over before he does.

    That's been Herm's modus operandi since he started coaching the stupid bastid. Maybe by the time he's coaching at San Diego State he'll have learned something.

  4. Thanks Everyone. It was a nice gift. Especially enjoyed it watching with my 10 yr old in a room full of Brady jerseys. My son is a little trash talker and it was quite humorous watching men (and one woman) well over twice his age stoop to his level because they were so upset. It was fun. Again - thanks. Took the day off from work to continue celebrating so that's just what I'm going to do.

  5. Why are the Jets 11 point underdogs to the Pats this weekend?

    I thought you guys said the Jets are on the rise and the Pats are on the decline.:eek:

    This is the biggest spread over the last 4 years.

    Do the Jets really suck that bad?

    I thought your question was going to be "Why do so many Pats fans post here?". My bad.

  6. Browns- 13

    Jets- 6

    That's awesome. You stand by your prediction that the Jets will win between 6-8 games yet you pick against them every week. In theory then, you will be incorrect 37.5 - 50 percent of the time. Not bad for you actually.

    Jets 27

    UPS 17
