So did Pat and Debbie Boone


True. But neither of them played Sam Houston, or Smaug for that matter.

I appologize to Burton. He did okay. Just don't press our luck and let him pitch another inning.

PS

Don't put Duensing in either.

We live in igloos and engage in snowball fights to sort out our differences.


Thats why you have two teams named "Roughriders" in an 9 team league.

I know Ottawa changed but I had to pretend they haven't to continue on my chosen path.

Thank God you weren't Sam Houston after the Alamo

And I get that reference only because there was no remote for the buttonless TV in my hotel room, and it was set to, what else, The Alamo. Billy Bob Crystal was hilarious and menacing.

Remember when there was no remotes... The crap I used to watch because I didn't want to get up.

I agree with Jack Morris... the Twins seem to be able to stay in / get back into ball games better this year than the last three years.

There's a whole thread devoted to this, but Morris has insightful things to say, he's just noting as he'll.

What do separatist Canadian politics have to do with being a... male entertainer? Not a judgement, just a query. Also, depending on which soccer parent's twitter account you research it with, there may be a chance that one outfit is the the Roughriders, and the other is the Rough Riders.

Also, depending on how negotiations with FX over marketing rights go, it seems possible that one of them may change their name to Rough Service.

It's ok' I'm just having a heart attack. Auto correct got me, he'll was supposed to be hell, and the whole thread was an inane commentary about broadcasters with the overarching theme that Morris is smart, just not interesting.

I participated in the inane thread, I'm not above it.
