    When we kicked the FG to beat the Bucs in 2003 week 2. We had just came from behind to beat Jacksonville the week before, and Delhomme was now our QB - and we are playing the Super Bowl champs in their home opener. Blocking the extra point to send the game to OT was insane.
     

    That guy wearing number 90 is my old pal Marc, the biggest Panther fan you would ever meet, who passed away in 2006, 4 days after he won one of those "Panther fan of the week" things the stadium used to do. Another friend of mine is kinda pissed that Tupas helmet is blocking him from being in this picture LOL

    Anything CAN be. Odds seem quite low to me. "The Soul of a New Machine" is a great book with "soul" in the title.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President-elect Barack Obama wants to renew the U.S. commitment to finding al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, according to his national security advisers.
    Osama bin Laden remains on the run despite a $25 million reward for his capture.
    The Obama team believes the Bush administration has downplayed the importance of catching the FBI's most-wanted terrorist because it has not been able to find him.
    "We will kill bin Laden. We will crush al Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority," Obama said during the presidential debate on October 7.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/the-hunt-for-bin-laden-what-exactly-em-did-em-obama-do
    In 2005, then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld reportedly called off such a mission, despite the fact that intelligence officials had "unusually high confidence" about the whereabouts of Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda's then-second-in-command. According to a 2007New York Times report revealing the aborted raid, Rumsfeld was concerned about both the size of the operation -- which grew to include several hundred military personnel and CIA operatives -- and the potential reaction from the Pakistani government.

    In 2011, President Obama was faced with a similar decision that obviously ended differently.http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/10/this-is-50-50-behind-obamas-decision-to-kill-bin-laden/263449/On May 26, 2009, four months into his presidency, [President Obama] had ended a routine national security briefing in the Situation Room by pointing to [then-Deputy National Security Adviser Tom] Donilon, Leon Panetta, his newly appointed CIA director, Mike Leiter, director of the National Counter Terrorism Center, and Rahm Emanuel, his chief of staff. "You, you, you, and you," he said. "Come upstairs. I want to talk to you guys about something." 
    As Donilon would tell [Bowden], Obama said: "Here's the deal. I want this hunt for Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri to come to the front of the line. I worry that the trail has gone cold. This has to be our top priority and it needs leadership in the tops of your organizations [...] And I want regular reports on this to me, and I want them starting in thirty days."
    At his regular daily briefings, [President] Bush would routinely ask, "How're we doing?" and everyone knew what he was talking about. It was the same with Obama. After that impromptu meeting in his office with his new intelligence chiefs in 2009, he would bring it up at nearly every security briefing.
    "Are we any closer?"
    "What have we learned?"

    Obama got the mission to find bin Laden going hard again as his first task once sworn in. Before then, our President ready didn't care where he was, remember?
