  1. This is a pretty unique situation due to OJ's celebrity combined with his inability to just lay low where the Goldman's are constantly reminded that the guy who murdered their son/brother and got away with it is out there living the good life. I'm willing to cut them some slack. ***** OJ.
  2. Earlier in the week Howard played some clips from the interview TG did with OJ recently. The Kim Goldman interview was separate from that.
  3. I dont expect this to come to civil war, but who knows. What I do expect as almost certain is unprecedented levels of violence directly leading up to, on and immediately after election day 2020.
  4. Suggesting that the squad members all have cancer is racist!! 😉
  5. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/defense-national-security/dna-tests-reveal-30-of-suspected-fraudulent-migrant-families-were-unrelated
  6. There are dozens of other legitimate angles to attack Trump on. Its absolutely mind boggling to me that they're going to try to play this hand again.
  7. I've had young candidates show up for an interview with a parent. Its unbelievable how we have seemingly coddled a generation of kids into being non functioning "adults".
  8. I was going to second Steven Wilson recommendation but instead I'll post a brand new Opeth tune.
  9. I'll add a couple non obscure player encounters, not meetings. Growing up in the Hamburg / OP area I'd see players and coaches all the time around town but a few in particular stick out. At St. Bernadette's in OP for Satuday evening mass circa the late 80s. I turn around to offer the sign of peace to....Jim Kelly. I had no idea he was there behind us that day. I'd see him at mass often but he typically showed up late and left early. Right after I graduated college I was still living at my parents house in OP and commuting to work downtown. One morning I'm driving down a deserted California road and I see a SUV coming up behind me at a very high rate of speed. As he passed on my left I was ready to give this ahole the finger. It was Jim Kelly. When we lived in Hamburg Bruce's house was around the corner from us in a new development off McKinley parkway. Once I was in Tops at McKinley and southwestern and here comes Bruce walking out carrying nothing but two cases of Genny pounders. Mid to late 90s I was at the ballet (Pure Platinum) on the Friday before the season opener...and in walks Bruce with a small group, none of which were Bills teammates as far as I could tell. I turned to my friend and wondered why Bruce was there given the Bills were opening the season in San Diego on Sunday. We all found out on Sunday that ole Bruce's knee was acting up again. I'd often see Phil Hansen at the village of Hamburg library sitting at a table with a bunch of financial periodicals spread out in front of him. One semi obscure player story to keep thos post more on topic although it wasnt my encounter but from a friend who worked at the noco gas station at the corner of main and center street in Hamburg. He told me Glenn Parker would often stop in to gas up and grab one of those magazines they keep wrapped in brown paper.
  10. I forgot about another obscure player encounter. My cousins husband is best friends with former Bills backup QB Rick Strom. The year that he made the Bills he borrowed some extra furniture from my parents. I happened to be visiting my parents house one day and the doorbell rang, it was Rick dropping off tickets to the Monday night game against the Broncos when both teams wore their throwback uniforms. I'm guessing like 94 or 95. We watched that game sitting in the seats among the players' families.
  11. Met and got a picture with Moorman at a tailgate that I randomly stopped into while walking into the home opener last year. He seemed like a decent dude to me.
  12. Obscure.. Got to meet Byron Franklin and Booker Moore when they came to my grade school classroom in the early 80s. Played a round of golf at Hamburg town golf course with Will Grant circa the late 80s early 90s. Another friend in grade school was neighbors with Ulysses Norris. When he got cut, Len Walterschied moved in. Or maybe it was the other way around. Not so obscure.. Met Jim Ritcher at a Sabres game here in Raleigh a few years ago. I was introduced to him and spent the bulk of the intermission talking to him. It was when they brought back Marv as GM. Had a few drinks with Ted Cottrell at JP Fitzgeralds in Hamburg once. He was fairly inebriated.
  13. Thin Man Brewing makes a pilsner called "Pills Mafia". Its a decent German style pils.
  14. I was there as a 10 year old with my dad and brother. Next to the comeback game this might be #2 on my list of Bills games I attended. In fact when I wanted to leave with Houston up 35-3 my dad reminded me of this game and convinced me to stay.
  15. No way, no how. If Bruce had an actual full blown case of influenza he would have made the Bills much worse that day had he tried to play. Influenza isn't something you just shake off, suck it up and go out and play a game of NFL football with.
  16. Saw candlebox open for Rush in 1994 on the counterparts tour. That was the last time rush had an opening act on a tour, subsequent to that they always did "an evening with" shows. Candlebox was meh.
  17. 😄 That much is obvious. It seems as though you've thoroughly paid attention to the bulk of the media who have lied to you for the past 2+ years. While DR relied on himself to do his own research and filter through publicly available documents to connect the dots. He was so far out in front of this whole thing that there really weren't any media or political pundits talking about this, conservative or otherwise. Yet here we are.
  18. The declassification will add more logs to the fire most certainly, but there is absolutely no tipping point on the horizon where you'll see the more ardent leftists start to come to grips with what really happened. Comey, Brennan, Clapper et al. could all come out and admit to all of their treasonous actions under oath and it still wouldn't be enough for some. It would all still be justified because Trump.
  19. Late again. Howard claims he has taken himself out of decision process and the powers that be have wanted to fire Benjy years ago for chronic lateness.
  20. Hopefully they will FINALLY fire Benjy this time!
  21. TWUS I view a little differently, it seemed to me that under the old format it was a way for annoying staffers like Benjy to crowbar themselves on and create a controversy which would in turn lead to more airtime with Howard. I think the current format allows Gary to really put his encyclopedic show knowledge on display. John Hein, who granted is pretty dry and boring, does manage to keep the show on point and moving along well. I also like some of the lower profile celebrities they have on. Takei is still on the show, Kinison is dead and Richard Simmons is a recluse. I dont know what Gilbert did to get dropped as a regular, but I never particularly enjoyed him anyway. I also thought he had Joan Rivers on way too much.
  22. I enjoyed the old Stern just as much as the next guy, but should it really surprise anyone that he has evolved? A Stern at 65 years old still having an endless parade of strippers, lesbians and porn stars in studio and using his guests as props instead of actually interviewing them would be an extremely tired schtick at this point and incredibly sad.
  23. Howard's new book about his interviews out today. Oh and I'll cover the obligatory "Howard hasnt been funny in years and I dont listen anymore" post.
