    Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Yeah, you'd think it was about gun bullets, but oddly it's not. Here's a link. https://www.songfacts.com/facts/lynyrd-skynyrd/gimme-back-my-bullets I stumbled on a old interview with Ronnie VZ on YouTube where he was discussing this stuff. It was really cool listening to him. My two older brothers were big Skynyrd fans back in the 70's. I of course listened to what my big bros were listening to. There was a lot of talent in that band.

    Yeah, I was just sitting here trying to think of some. Mexicalli Blues, El Paso, Jack Straw, Me and My Uncle, CandyMan?, Mr Charlie, Stagger Lee ...

    Stagger Lee would work too. (I always thought Dire Wolf was simply about Dire Wolves outside the door.)

    Just wondering what GD songs you're referring to. (Me and my Uncle?) The racist stuff comes from the line, "In Birmingham they love the governor". It led a lot of people to believe that the band agreed with the policies of Governor George Wallace, who was very pro-segregation. However, the lines that immediately follow, "Boo, boo, boo!" and "We all did what we could do", actually point out that they were in direct opposition to Wallace.

    I've heard old interviews with Ronnie, where he explains that "Saturday Night Special" was a pro gun-control song, and that "Sweet Home Alabama" was an anti-Racist song. Funny how that all got lost in translation in the decades since his passing.

    "One more from the road." I loved that double album, growing up. If any of you are interested in Lynyrd Skynyrd, I recommend watch the excellent music doco called, 'Muscle Shoals". It's a fantastic story in it's own right, but the part about Skynyrd is really interesting.
  7. Jeez... he's all we have on offense, and has always been a joy to watch.

    Bojorquez should be cut

    Sadly, I've been coming to this board for about 20 years now. I don't ever remember this kinda stuff after a win. Is it because of the new members from that other board that closed down?

    Is it just me or does TBD have a lot of Trolls all of a sudden? (People really can't be this stupid, can they?)

    You need to get a friggin' grip.
  11. Joe B is right. It was Buddy's pick. Not only that, but I think at least half of the "blame" for the Watkins pick can go to ol' Russ. The entire Whaley GM tenure was very strange.

    Where can I watch football in Paris?

    For Pete's sake... enjoy your time on holiday and try not to muck it up by trying to watch the Bills. Will you be asking us if we know where McDonalds is located in Paris? Same thing.

    Someone needs to be fired over Mahomes right now.

    Someone needs to be fired, eh? I'm surprised the "Fire Juan Castillo crowd" hasn't come in here to say that it's his fault. (Well, too be honest, I haven't read all of the pages in this thread, so apologies if they have.)
  14. For the 20-odd years I've been coming on to the board, this is definitely one of the most stupid posts I've ever read. Well done.
