  1. That appears to be the reason he hasn't retired... From this link: https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/salary-cap-expert-redskins-still-owe-alex-smith-tens-millions "His contract is structured like any other quarterback contract at his magntitude," he said. "The extension averaged 22.5 million per year. So his 2019 $15 million base salary was fully guaranteed at signing. That was to be expected. "Now, when you have contracts like this, the 2020 season sometimes is guaranteed at signing ... $16 million, 2020 the base salary, it was guaranteed at signing and it becomes fully guaranteed if he's on the roster as of the fifth day of the 2019 league year which is this upcoming St. Patrick's Day. So that's $31 million over the next two years that it's almost impossible for the Redskins to get out of. But that's the nature of the beast of a contract of this magnitude for a quarterback. " If Smith decided to retire, Corry said, the Redskins could recoup some of that money. But he doesn't see Smith giving them the chance to do so."
  2. Even if they did it probably wouldn't the Bills, the two seemingly play every year (4 times in the last 5 years)
  3. Exactly. Real speed reviews...if you can't overturn in real speed then the evidence isn't incontrovertible. Cost Detroit the game. Just terrible.
  4. I was thinking the same thing yesterday after watching a couple that obviously should have been overturned.
  5. This was not a fun fact at all. We were duped!
  6. Don't know the answer, but it certainly sounds like something he would have done. Warming up for spiking a bullet in his thigh! edit - Yup, it was him
  7. Not sure if they missed all 4 wins, but they certainly missed the game in Tennessee, as the Titans are ranked 3 spots ahead of the Bills despite losing on their home turf.
  8. Cliche's got to be cliche's for a reason, most of them are true. "Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace."
  9. Question: What did the Twilight Zone fan say when he quit smoking pot? Answer: God, this show sucks.
  10. This was my first thought...and I don't really care to.
  11. Did you read the part where I said we'd smoke a joint before watching in the TV lounge? You're gullible...even stoned I saw that one coming.
  12. Nice article John. Remember going to college in the 70's...everyone would fire up a joint in their dorm room, then file down to the TV lounge at 11:00 PM for an hour of TZ. Unlike Night Gallery, which was always scary with a bad ending for the protagonist, one never knew if TZ endings would be good or bad, though if I recall correctly they were more often good. PS you left off Jack Klugman from your list of actors, who appeared in 4 episodes, tied for the most appearances with Burgess Meredith.
  13. From the article "...But privately he was an extremely charitable man, distributing money to many local causes, usually done quietly with no publicity. Charitable contributions also were made through the Cardinals Foundation, formed shortly after the franchise moved to Arizona in 1988..." Ralph did things the same way during his life, and continues to give back (in a somewhat louder manner) posthumously through his foundation.
  14. So what you're saying is that it really does enhance performance...
  15. So are you sure it is kidney stones? I had all the symptoms you describe and was sure it was stones. After two days in the hospital and 3 tests later it was determined that I had a kink in my kidney causing hydronephrosis. Like a kink in a garden hose, it passed water just fine for a long time (in my case 6 decades) but if it bends enough it will cause a blockage. Had to have the stent inserted in to my kidney. The removal of said stent is supposed to take 30 seconds of, well lets just say it will be the worst part. It took the urologist 4 minutes at which point he decided he couldn't take it out in the office and would need to put me under general anesthesia and remove it in the operating room. Hope things go smoother for you than they did for me.
  16. The Shur Fine I frequent in Irondequoit used to be IGA. I think when some of the smaller chains like Super Duper and IGA dissolved many the owners took on the Shur Fine products. So, not directly related but more a natural evolution.
  17. To be fair, Duke has been a quarterback factory for decades. Here is a partial list of the Hall of Fame QB's they have turned out: Sonny Jurgensen Actually, that's the entire list. Never mind.
  18. Maybe deliver him some free chicken wings, you know, cooked the way Buffalo Billy cooked them for the Orlando team before the playoff game in the TV show Coach.
  19. It was 29 years ago, give me a break. Didn't check the game day weather but I have now - the 27 MPH wind made the wind chill 25. I also exaggerated on the attendance, it was 74,904, not 75,000.
  20. I read an article that appeared in the Miami paper before the Bills-Dolphins game in December 1990. The winner of that game was going to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The gist of the article was that Bills fans were better, and since the game is for the fans, they should win. It points out Miami could barely get 50,000 fans on a 75 degree day on Nov. 4 vs the Cardinals. A week later against the same team, in 25 degree weather, Buffalo had 75,000. The funny part of the article was "by 9:00 AM they'll be half drunk. By 10:00 AM they'll be burning Miami fans' coats and hats. THEIR HUSBANDS ARE EVEN WORSE!" Somehow your comment reminded me of the article.
  21. Reminds me of an old polish saying...If your horse has a broken leg, you can soot the horse, but that won't fix the leg.
  22. Weird. Allmusic.com has his birth date as 3/23/49. https://www.allmusic.com/artist/ric-ocasek-mn0000889097/biography Wiki has it as 3/23/44 and has him graduating from Maple Heights HS in 1963 which would mean 75 is more likely. However, if you go to Maple Heights HS Wiki page it shows him as a notable alumni and a 1968 graduate, making 70 more likely. "Ric Ocasek – lead singer of The Cars, a 1968 graduate..." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maple_Heights_High_School
  23. Do the math...born in 49, he was 70.
