  1. Past hour
  2. Absolutely. Moreover, I doubt that Von Braun would have been party to faking it. He was dedicated -- had been dedicated his entire life -- to space exploration. He was also an amoral individual. His v-1 and v-2 rocket programs for the Nazis furthered his research into rocketry, and actually hindered the German war effort because they diverted so many resources from designing/building better and more war planes. He was courted by both the US and the Soviets even before the fall of Germany, and he chose the US because he figured he'd be allowed to do rocket research while the Soviets would have him working on missiles. I have no doubt that he would have defected to the USSR without thinking twice if the US abandoned the manned space program and replaced it with some elaborate sham. He was available to the highest bidder and his price was space exploration.
  3. Just bumping this up, for those who care...
  4. Listen, I hear ya here. And I literally say the exact same thing when we complain about power rankings. Win so much they have to give us better rankings whether they want to or not. To boot, we were godawful just straight up horrible last year.. so in all fairness we need to represent that and have the rating a 6-10 team deserves. But this is a silly Madden game.. which I play.. so I'm going to get crushed in my online rankings this year by the looks of it, given that I always play with the Bills. This is important.
  5. I'll be more interested in the 2nd and 3rd string than usual this year. Number of guys like Singletary and Joseph I'm excited to see out there
  6. The war's not going to be fought by large units of well-equipped ground troops engaged in high-tech Clausewitzian-style fighting. It'll be more Maoist in style.
  7. Hap, just wait for it. it is going to be the Colts all over again. The Pats last season with Brady will be about 11-5, 12-4. The next season without they will be even worse than what they should be. They will go from being AFC East Champs to literally being the worst team in the League, almost inexplicably, at 2-14. They will get the first pick and low and behold it won't just be a QB, but rather a generational type talent that is un-denied by all. Then, this rookie will...inexplicably...be just good enough to take the previous years 2-14 team to 13-3 and home field advantage all the way through the playoffs. ...they will be bad for one single season. I hate life.
  8. I would love to do away with tipping! They don't tip in Europe, and it makes things WAY easier. Including eliminating some credit card identity fraud.
  9. Explain your line of reasoning so I can understand.
  10. That's not how the war will be fought.
  11. That's been the mantra since Marv retired as HC... They don't have several more years if we accept now that they have stocked the team with talent. At least McD doesn't.
  12. Did we shoot it down or did the rubber band just snap?
  13. I like his swagger, it’s something the Browns can feed off. My concern for him though is him staying focused.
  14. My parents first house was 77 Cheekwood Drive..had it built..then we moved to Como Park Blvd once my sisters and brother was born. Big news for the week:Polish Festival at Town Park. Get back home..🌝
  15. The Squad Member that I don't understand is the black gal. Why link yourself to these other bomb throwers? Were all the other junior high school clubs already full? I'm pretty sure she's a black lady from a black District. If she lays low she can be there for another 50 years, quietly collecting a six figure salary. Just ask Maxine!
  16. Sorry, no Bills preseason games will be aired LIVE on NFL Network this year. Here's the full list....http://www.nfl.com/network/preseason
  17. My father was a GE engineer and he worked at a place called Apollo Park in Daytona Beach, across the street from the speedway, race track, and dog track. I was 12 years old in July 1969. I was totally into it, as were many of my class mates whose fathers also worked at space related industries. The idea that it wasn’t real wasn’t even thought about. In school, they would have us all go out to the PE fields to watch rocket launches. That was a memorable time period.
  18. You’d think Atlanta wouldn’t be too bad, but gray with low 40’s and raining is pretty sucky! I actually remember telling my mom as a kid I’d rather have 10 and snow than 40 and rain. I still believe that. Last winter was unusually miserable, with only a couple nice days over a 4 month stretch. (A friend from my Florida days moved up, and was seriously depressed, looking into light boxes and considered pulling the plug and going back.) Granted, it’s not as long as WNY, which was always what I hated the most....it would just never end! I’m not saying it’s worse by any means, just that after 18 years in Florida I came to expect 12 months of nice weather to play tennis or walk the dog. I’ve come to realize that weather is unusually important to me. My kids tell me growing up in Buffalo scarred me, and they just may be right!
  19. Win games (against a decent team), then talk. It’s like white noise now, he yaps so much. If the highlight of your season (as described to annoying Mina Kimes) is beating that carcass of a Bengals team that was lying around at the end of 2018 (Jeff Driskel at QB!) you need to get your ***** together.
  20. a heptad of responses: a. I saw a thread b. I read the comments in the original post c. I read the article that was linked d. I questioned the connection between the article and the comments made about it e. I stated my point of view, while also taking a tongue-in-cheek stab at BM's douchiness, by posting on a message board designed for exactly that f. if a messenger leads me to infer unrelated things about whatever it is they're delivering g. bang
  21. Born and raised in Cheektowaga, but after 30 years in the Navy wound up retiring in Virginia Beach, still try to make it up there for a game when I can.
  22. I'm less concerned about pre-season games as I am inter squad scrimmages. If the Panthers come into Saint John Fisher and push us around on our home turf may as well blow it all up and start again fresh in 2020.
