  1. Uhhh, maybe people watch because, not only do they like "their" team, they enjoy the sport itself, especially the playoffs. Let's face it, NHL Stanley Cup hockey is on an entirely different level compared to the regular season, or pretty much that of any other sport, for that matter. I feel the same way about football...been a Panthers fan since day one, but that doesn't mean I didn't watch other games before we got a team, or that I don't watch other teams' games now. No one can really call themselves a fan of the game if they don't, at least to some degree, appreciate Brady's greatness (regardless of any asterisks one may wish to attach), or the blooming talents of young guns such as Allen, Burrow, and of course, what we've seen from Mahomes. Ditto for other positions, and evolution of the game itself... the positive aspects of it anyway. Another example. I appreciate a performance of excellence in many forms. Now, toss in a comeback storyline. As for sports, IMO, watching golf is like watching the proverbial paint dry. That said, you can bet your last dollar I caught the final round of the Masters when Tiger made that comeback, and enjoyed every minute of it...but not nearly as much as I did 28-3. The Sound Fx video of those guys mic'd up is downright inspirational.
  2. The level of mis/dis-info about Covid-19 around here is astoundingly beyond stupid. Actually, it's not just here, but across the USA, and indeed, the entire globe. Below are the objective facts about the issue at hand. Links are also provided so that folks interested can see for themselves. Those who want to manipulate the stats will also benefit because the linked sources often include underlying raw data, along with any caveats. Therefore, tin foil hat wearing rocket surgeons can use their vast knowledge of biostatistics and epidemiology to arrive at their own conclusions too! Links... CDC: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations_vacc-total-admin-rate-total NCDHHS: https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/dashboard/vaccinations Johns Hopkins (Global): https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html ----- Screenshots of this morning's states for Buncombe, Meck., and Orange (lots of really smart people in their demo.) counties:
  3. Not from mid through late January, which is when we'll hopefully need it.
  4. As stated above, yep. There's talk of them (NCAA) tweaking the eligibility rule though, because (big surprise) it's allegedly being abused. Something about Texas Tech's recent run triggered them, IIRC. For a prominent example, Russell Wilson played at Wisconsin as a grad student.
  5. Did anyone actually read the original article? If so, where does it state that the Panthers called about Darnold? All I'm seeing is old news that they called about Stafford. Stifled by the Jets' incompetence or not, I'm not convinced he's worth the nearly 5 mil/ left on his contract, much less a pick, or picks and/or a player swap. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30853025/sources-multiple-teams-reached-new-york-jets-sam-darnold
  6. Nice eye Zod. Can we all chip in and get you to the MIA game? Some shots at that one would be nice, especially if the weather is warm.
  7. Better try an electric razor when your first time shaving rolls around in a few years. The ones with blades will cut you. She was front and center in my first Huddle avatar from the JAX game.
  8. I'd like to thank Zod and rayzor for injecting some logic and well-reasoned analysis into these threads about yesterday's game. I tried in the locked Shula thread but was so dang mad I couldn't even type straight. If we take the Bills and Giants, maybe we'll have something to look forward to after the bye. If things aren't shaping up well by the middle of October, I expect JR may get his broom out of the closet, hand it to the G-man, and do a little house cleaning again. On a positive note, if the season does go down the crapper this year, the 2014 draft is overloaded with OL talent.
  9. Seattle won, and they are not that impressive. We lost. Sure a few bright spots for us, but overall not that impressive either, especially with all the talk of starting strong. Panthers overall grade D. Coaching F----. Can 'em NOW.
  10. Apparently so, and while we're on the subject, the visiting Chawks should also be aware that Mecklenburg County was arguably the first to declare independence, about a year before the "official" Dec was signed. Furthermore, the Brits, like the Chawks, found our home to be like a "hornet's nest" when facing us in battle. Our opponent this week may well feel the same. I have a feeling BoA's field will look a lot like my backyard after my wife's cat snagged a bird...bloody feathers all over the place.
  11. Actually, in a recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive and Restorative Dentistry, Seattle ranked 47th out of the 50 largest USA metro areas in terms of relative dental health of their population while Charlotte ranked third.
  12. Because at least one of 59's plays will indirectly, if not directly, put additional points on the board for us, just like in the preseason Ravens game.
  13. (59 + 58 + 52 + 76 + 95 + 96 + 68 + 27 = -3) * 1 Edit (Tues, 9/3): Oddly, even though Star and Kawaan changed jersey numbers today to 98 and 99, the modified result is still the same = NEGATIVE 3.
