Was at Canton v. the Jags--did not come away with many expectations.

 

At Clemson the game I remember the most was against the Jets (then coached by Rich Kotite)--our first win--when Sam Mills (best ever Panther) intercepted a Bubby Brister shovel pass for a touchdown!  So good.

I was there, sitting up near the top of the stadium.  I remember getting in a fender bender on 85 coming home.  That sucked.

Didn't go to the preseason games I don't think. I do remember the St. Louis game and the 49ers game and ofcourse our first win, against the Jets. I was 8 years old then.

Ha I got lost reading all the other sports news. Atlanta's promising rookie Chipper Jones, Mariners (my favorite team) going down 3-2 with Orel Hershiser striking out Griffey.

Went to all the games that year.  I had season tickets and remember the drive down to Clemson.  I don't know how many times we would get jammed in traffic and have to use the access roads on 95 to try and get past the jam.  Wandering around on the backroads of South Carolina sometimes leading a pack of 25 or 30 cars.  It was before the day of GPS so were going down the backroads with a  state map hoping we were going right since many of the roads were not marked.  

 

It never happened but I wondered how long it would take to untangle everyone if we went round a bend and it was a dead end. 30 or more cars trying to turn around and go another way.  LOL

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
