  1. Hmm, I realized yesterday that there is a young, attractive lady sitting next to me on the couch. She tells me she is my wife. She seems nice, and I feel like I should get to know her with all this time on my hands now,
  2. I think Tibor is just saying that the Bengals are a graveyard for Buckeye talent. Not that the Buckeyes can’t produce NFL talent.
  3. I bet a lot of this No Trade stance has more to do with Mike Brown seeing some of the impacts of our former players at other teams (Whitworth, Burkhead, Sanu, Marvin Jones, Zeitler). Remember, once upon good old Mikey Boy used the excuse that he'd rather re-sign our own talent than bring in high priced FA. Even though he's clearly proven that he is incapable of keeping/rewarding our own talent, he's probably playing hard ball out of fear that our talent could propel other teams to levels he couldn't while they were here. I bet it's all about personal stubbornness with Mike why these guys aren't on the trading block - and ultimately, that will continue our futility. We aren't going to win anything the next 2-3 years, so why not trade in your chips regardless the perception, and start a rebuild with a clear cut strategy, one that is transparent to fans - we are the ones he will have to win over first of all.
  4. I’m amazed that we never seem to have any money under the cap to sign key FA, yet the Patriots can add a 15 Mil one year contract to their payroll AFTER the season start and the Stealers can trade a 1st round pick and also add to their payroll after the season start. It all starts and stops with our conservative team management.
  5. The real curse is that we as fans have been conditioned to expect that injuries are expected, yet we will do nothing sand just go to war with what we have. Mike Brown will never ever dole out short term money to plug glaring weaknesses. The long term impact has always been valued over the short term goals - but the NFL is a year to year league, so the long term play rarely works out. So, I expect some scrap heap signing, lamentations that we can’t break the bank for a short term gap, and the usual lethargy set in when other teams find a way to sign replacements for their camp injuries. It’s good to be a Bengals fan when you’re a masochist...
  6. Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle on Amazon hits today. Getting ready to binge...
  7. True, I don't get her either. She is tolerable in this movie, but yes, overall she's bleh for me too.
  8. I kinda liked him in American Ultra. Mediocre movie, and he does his emo "shtick, but he made me laugh.
  9. If you have Amazon Prime, I would highly suggest The Man in the High Castle. Pretty intense story telling in a "what if the Nazis and Japenese won WWII" scenario. GF and I binge watched the hell out of it.
  10. Yeah, but having the Playoff without a Pacific Coast team could be a weighing factor. Need to attract viewership west of the Rockies as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they picked Stanford over OSU to ensure a) there aren't two teams from one conference, and b) to ensure they aren't labeled with the "east coast bias".
  11. It's the female version of Chris Farley's Motivational Speaker living in a van down by the river
  12. I watched both Episodes. While not on the same level as the original, it still is a worthwhile watch. It has the impending doom and gloom feel, and it still plays with the "what would you do in that situation" vibe of the first one. But yes, it's more human drama than moving action and killing. But most of the walking dead episodes are typically build up episodes to the big bang kill fest, and this feels the same. The anticipation to the big escalation of shit hitting the fan is building up. It still feels a little underbudgeted as well - for example, we get to "hear" a riot happening outside, but don't get to see what's actually happen. The authors definitely like to create an athmosphere of the viewer knows what's going on and therefore, we don't really have to show it.
