In Topic: Superbowl over hyped to the point of nauseum

Yesterday, 03:30 PM

This super bowl has Katy Perry in it. Nothing about it can be overrated.



I'm honestly looking forward to seeing her at halftime. Better than looking at crypt keepers like the Rolling Stones out there.



Plus Lenny Kravitz is performing with her.....should be a good performance.


On a side note - I've found it funny that the more people watch the halftime show than the actual game itself and the ratings go up during that time.

It's late in the game for this match and they are wanting a payday but I'd still watch it. Haven't really watched boxing since Prince Naseem Hamed got destroyed by Barrera and that had to be more than 10 years ago.


Anyone else think Floyd and Manny meeting face to face for the first time at the Heat game the other day wasn't a coincidence? Interesting thought about announcing the fight during the Superbowl....makes perfect marketing sense.

The nerd in me believes that Dan Morgan is like the Anakin Skywalker to Luke Keuchly.



Since Morgan was ruined by injuries the football force re-manifested his midichlorians into Luke Keuchly. Luke is everything Morgan was supposed to be.



and here Morgan is one game away from winning his second Superbowl ring.

A fun year was the team's 2nd year in existence (96-97 season). They won the NFC West, had a first round bye, beat the Cowboys at home and eventually lost soundly in the NFCG to the Packers up in Lambeau. Anthony Johnson was the RB, Kerry Collins the QB, and Mark Carrier and Wesley Walls were the main receiving threats. Moose was a rookie that year and didn't play much I don't think.


It was quite the impressive run for a team in their 2nd year in the league. I remember I was getting on a cruise ship in Miami right before kickoff and went straight to the sports bar to watch the game.

Capers won coach of the year and J Richardson said Capers had a "lifetime contract" to coach the team......but he was fired 2 years later.  :)  


Also have fond memories of Steve Beuerlein who replaced Kerry Collins after he literally benched himself and left town. He had one of the best years ever for a QB at that time and I think it was in 1999. He is also famous for the "Carolina Draw" when he did a designed QB draw from the 5 yd line against the Packers to win the game with no time left. It was hilarious because he was about as mobile as a cinder block but no one expected it. Look it up - it's an entertaining story.  George Seifert eventually ran him out of town for no good reason.


Patrick Jeffers had his 15 mins of fame year that year with 10+ TD's and over 1,000 yds receiving. He never did much before that and never was heard from again. I forget what happened to him. 


Having greats like Reggie White and Kevin Greene on the team were early notables as well. 


Guess I really dated myself with this post. 

In Topic: Just found out I have low T

Yesterday, 11:08 AM

I've got an appointment next wednesday to discuss options. I'm just curious if anyone knows first hand if the patches, injections, gels actually work.



Gotcha - not sure but I know guys who go to certain places around town and get injections and they claim it works wonders even though they don't have actual low T. They do it for workout reasons, sexual prowess, overall stamina, etc.
