FOOTBALL Thread

Well, sort of. Preseason anyway. I know, I know - it doesn't count. But it's a nice fix until the real deal.

I am really looking forward to the Texans this year. At least they stunk so bad last year they finally fired our coach. I couldn't believe they hired Dom Capers in the first place. He has never been a winner - what were they thinking ?????

Now we have Denver's Offensive Caoch - Gary Kubiak - home boy, Aggie quarterback (whoop!). He is installing Denver's system - copying everything they did actually - so it should be interesting. May take him a year or two, but we will be in the playoffs soon I am certain.

I admire Kubiak for having the guts to thumb his nose at the sports writers, fan and backers and pass on Vince Young and Reggie Bush and go with Mario Williams for his first round pick. Pissed EVERYYBODY off, he he, and he didn't apologize for it. Time will tell if it was a smart move or not.

I know you don't like football, UC, but I enjoy it very much. Don't care much for the other sports, but I love to watch football.

I thought so - just making sure. I know you are over on the east coast, just couldn't quite remember where. What year did the Panthers come in as an expansion team?

edited to add:

Ah - I found it - 1993! Damn, time flies when you are having fun!

I have someone who enjoys it as much as I do to watch it with, so it's a lot more fun now.

My ex picked on me all the time about liking football and tried to make me feel guilty for enjoying such a "barbaric" sport. I didn't care or apologize - I just wanted to be left alone to enjoy it.

I am sure it is because of my Dad - we are close and he loves football, so I grew up with it and have fond memories of watching and listening to the games.

l like Animal Planet, and sometimes a little History Channel.

Sometimes l'll watch something else, but it's rare for me to watch more than about maybe 10 hours of TV a week at the most.

We didnt have a television until l was about 11 years old so l never developed much of a taste for it.

l'd rather go actually do something.


We wouldnt even have satellite but The Woman™ insists. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/naughty.gif" alt="Naughty" title="naughty" />

l can't stay glued to the TV for long or l get bored out of my mind.

Woo-hoo!!! Texans beat Kansas City 24-14 !!!

Normally I wouldn't be so excited about the first preseason game, but after going 2-14 last year and being the most pathetic NFL team in the league, I'll take a win - any win!

Main thing is they looked well coached and their timing looked good. Last year they looked like the keystone cops.

Cheers

Oh yeah!

the first fifteen minutes of that game showed what the Panthers will be like this year..
and it's GOOD!
No more ganging up on Steve Smith, not with Keyshawn on the other side of the line, Colbert and Carter are almost as good as them,
and our running backs?
TOP NOTCH! Deshaun, Deangelo Williams, Hayes and Goings..
woo hoo!

I foresee many entertaining weekends for several months

OK, here's proof that ball sports are not always gay. Check-out this email I got this morning:





What would you do? You make the choice! Don't look for a punch line,
>there isn't one! Read it anyway. The question is: Would you have made
>the same choice?
>
>At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning disabled
>children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that
>would never be forgotten by all who attended.
>
>After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a
>question:
>
>"When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does
>is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other
>children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is
>the natural order of things in my son?"
>The audience was stilled by the query. The father continued. "I believe,
>that when a child like Shay, physically and mentally handicapped comes
>into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents
>itself, and it comes, in the way other people treat that child." Then he
>told the following story:
>
>
>Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew
>were playing baseball. Shay asked, "Do you think they'll let me play?"
>
>Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like
>Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were
>allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and
>some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.
>
>Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay
>could play, not expecting much. The boy looked around for guidance and a
>few boys nodded approval, why not? So he took matters into his own hands
>and said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth
>inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat
>in the ninth inning."
>
>Shay struggled over to the team's bench, put on a team shirt with a
>broad smile and his father had a small tear in his eye and warmth in his
>heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted.
>
>In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but
>was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a
>glove and played in right field. Even though no hits came his way, he
>was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning
>from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands.
>
>In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again.
>Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was
>on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.
>
>At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win
>the game?
>
>Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all
>but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat
>properly, much less connect with the ball. However, as Shay stepped up
>to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing the other team putting winning
>aside for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the
>ball in softly so Shay could at least be able to make contact.
>
>The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher
>again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As
>the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground all
>right back to the pitcher.
>
>The game would now be over, but the pitcher picked up the soft grounder
>and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman.
>Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.
>Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the head of the first
>baseman, out of reach of all team mates. Everyone from the stands and
>both teams started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!" Never in
>his life had Shay ever ran that far but he made it to first base.
>
>He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled. Everyone yelled,
>"Run to second, run to second!" Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran
>towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to second base.
>
>By the time Shay started towards second base, the right fielder had the
>ball, the smallest guy on their team, who had a chance to be the hero
>for his team for the first time. He could have thrown the ball to the
>second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions,
>and he too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the
>third-baseman's head.
>
>Shay ran toward second base deliriously as the runners ahead of him
>circled the bases toward home. All were screaming, "Shay, Shay, Shay,
>all the Way Shay."
>
>As Shay reached second base, the opposing shortstop ran to help him and
>turned him in the direction of third base, shouting, "Run to third!
>Shay, run to third."
>
>As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams and those watching were
>on their feet, screaming, "Shay, run home!"
>
>Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who
>hit the "grand slam" and won the game for his team.
>
>"That day," said the father softly, with tears now rolling down his
>face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and
>humanity into this world."
>
>Shay didn't make it to another summer and died that winter, having never
>forgotten being the hero making his father so happy, and coming home and
>seeing his mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!
