#2740336 Game of Thrones-HBO-Seasons 1, 2, 3

Posted by teeray on Yesterday, 07:08 PM

I have always read fast. It's technically more like skimming i guess, in between the good parts. Probably why I can re-read a book a couple times and not die from boredom. Plus, all of my classes are online this semester so with that and the weather I have been a shut-in. My schedule is all out of whack.


All your classes are online? What are you, a UNC athlete?

I will just echo what everyone else said.  I got the books right after the first season (I was only going to read book 1 so not to spoil season 2... didn't happen) and finished all 5 books within 4 months.  After I got through the first book I could not stop reading it.

 

There were a couple of times during crazy parts that had me going "HOLY POO" that I couldn't put the book down until like 4:00AM and then was so revved up I just did not sleep.

 

The books are addictive.  I am not an avid fiction reader and often times will set books down for several days or weeks before picking them back up.  But these books I just plowed through.  The first half of book 1 is a little slow, but after that you are hooked (i.e. Ned Stark's arrest and eventual beheading)

Funniest (I guess) part in this episode may have been the show cutting from Theon to Tyrion chopping into some sausage. Made me squirm a little.

Tyrion breaking up with Shae was about as sad as when John Lithgow made Harry leave in "Harry and the Hendersons"

Most casual.fans have no use for defensive players.

I can't wait to see how much worse we are going to be after winning at least 42 games, will keep and continue to develop our young core, have a first round pick, and two first round picks next season, and @20 million to spend.

Should be devastating


#2737983 Steve Smith isn’t upset that he’s not a Panther

Should we have running game threads of Ravens games this season so we know everything Steve Smith says and does?


#2737979 Draft Day Movie

Posted by teeray on 13 April 2014 - 08:40 AM

Didn't realize there was so much Kevin Costner hate out there.  Geez.

 

As a sports fans I find it hard not to like him.  "Field of Dreams, "Bull Durham" "For the Love of the Game" "Tin Cup"... these are some of my favorite sports movies of all-time.

 

"Dances With Wolves" was great,  Wyatt Earp was pretty good, but it was just completely undermined by the far superior "Tombstone" being released right before it.

 

"Hatfield's and McCoy's" was pretty awesome.

 

Throw in other great movies like "Untouchables" "No Way Out" and "JFK". 

 

Almost everyone has some bad movies, even the great ones like Tom Hanks *cough* "The LadyKillers"




#2737971 Would Gettleman have drafted Cam?

Posted by teeray on 13 April 2014 - 08:24 AM

Ok if your not getting your info from the media how are you getting all that information? I just want to understand how you gathered all that information from a fan's perspective. Unless you had inside connections with other NFL teams and the panthers how do you exactly know all this?

 

Can you provide me for sources or how you came to the following?

 

No one wanted #1 pick was a lie --- Media said there was no interest for teams to move up in the draft but you say there was interest? How do you know this? Do you have proof that teams were calling to trade up to get Cam? 

 

How do you exactly know these background checks were all passed with flying colors? Did you administered them and look into every aspect of Cam's life? 

 

I am just trying to understand how you came to all these conclusion or are you simply making assumptions. 

 

Well for one Tony Pauline said:

 

 

- Last week in San Antonio at least six different teams said they rank Auburn quarterback Cam Newton as the number one prospect in the draft.  The opinions were comprised from scouts, personnel directors and a few coaches.  All had Newton rated clearly higher than Da’Quan Bowers, Nick Fairley, Marcel Dareus and competing signal caller Blaine Gabbert.  We hear the Miami Dolphins have been inquiring heavily into Newton at this stage of the game.

So that is at least six NFL scouting departments that had their big board very different from the TV/internet big boards.

 

That wasn't #1 QB, but the best overall prospect in the draft.

 

Most of the other crap was just media white noise

We need Kemba back.


#2737875 Bringing up the most heated debate in Basketball..

Posted by teeray on 12 April 2014 - 11:54 PM

Sorry but Kobe isn't even in the conversation for best ever.

He is an all time great though, but is not the best or second best or even top 5 and possibly not top 10 all time


#2737794 Bringing up the most heated debate in Basketball..

Posted by teeray on 12 April 2014 - 10:18 PM

I think people forget just how good Jordan was. He was simply the best ever. Neither Lebron or Kobe are really that close.

I do think Lebron is the best player right now in the NBA. And when his career is over he may be in the conversation.

And I will say that people who only count the number of rings to try to parse who is the greatest is being narrow minded.

Championships are part of the equation but aren't the only variable. You could make a strong argument that Karl Malone or Charles Barkley are the two best PFs ever to play and neither has a ring.
