I really don't have the tv anymore after they went to the all digital format as I live in a fringe area and I'll be darned if I'm going to shove $50 or more a month at directv or dish to get their service.  Because of this my Detoilet Lions will probably do well this season and make it to the playoffs and I won't be able to watch any of it!!   ;D

They actually have a running game this year...at least in the preseason so far.

Ha-good one Detoilet Lions!!  Hopefully this year will be good, just like the Tigers turned it around.

  College football is king around here- UNIVERSITY of MICHIGAN WOLVERINES!!!!!  Good Lord Willing, this will be a better year.  My hubby was a tackle in the 67-69 years at Mich.  Haven't had losing seasons since, till last year!!  1st game today.  We are going to the Notre Dame game next week.

The Steeler defense looks awesome this year. Better than last year's Super Bowl champions. Great game coming up this Thursday night. Steelers versus Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh. Titans won this game last year in Tennessee. Some of the Titan players blew their nose in the "Terrible Towel." Such disrespect. Sounds like the Steelers will be out for revenge. There might be some broken noses. On the other hand. Heb. 10:30  8)

I was born & raised in the Steel City, so I'm a Steelers fan through & through! :) I also cheer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (because I currently live in the Tampa Bay area), but I also love the Colts and Giants.

Is there any way that they can make the pre-season games count this year?  My team went 4 and 0.  I understand Detroit went 4 and 0 in last years pre-season.

GO PACK GO! GO PACK GO! GO PACK GO!

Yes, I am aware that the PACKERS are in GREEN BAY, Wisconsin and I live miles away, in California... Here's the explanation:

I was a RAMS fan when I was very little. Grew up 4 miles from Anaheim Stadium, where they played. It so happened that the year that my nana promised to take me to a game, they decided to move to St. Louis... so I said forget them [PG version]!!!

BUT I hate the Raiders, mostly because their fans annoy me, besides everyone I knew were Raiders fans, and I don't follow the crowd  8); and the Chargers at the time sucked bad.. So watching football that season I saw a bunch of GB games with the one and only BRETT FAVRE<---He is the reason why I became a PACKERS FAN.

...of course, this year he decided to sign with our Arch-Rivals, the Vikings, so now me and him got some issues...  >:( ??? >:( ???


That being said,

GO PACK GO! GO PACK GO! GO PACK GO!



PS: I saw that we have a Detroit Lions fan here... I'm sorry...  :D ;) :)

Just a quick note. Ray is wrong on one thing he said. In the audio on those who dispised God. Ray said not one point was ever scored on defence. Well the New Orleans Saints scored 14 points on defence. LOL/ I AM TALKING FOOTBALL OH yea 4-0 NY Giants and manning next.

You just scored a point on that comment Darren.  ;D I also caught Ray's statement that a defense has never scored a point in football. I guess Ray is not a football fan but lucky for us he's not. I remember the Super Bowl last year when James Harrison intercepted a Kurt Warner pass and ran it back 98 yards for a touchdown.  :o

UM didn't play Notre Dame.  They did rock against Oklahoma though.  And I agree, UM is back. . . . .Oh, you mean the other UM.  Sorry, old news.  Believe me, I know the passion up there and I usually pull for Michigan.  But I won't bother to ask what happened to them.

As for my U, I am going to watch them tonight  against FAMU at the stadium.  Unfortuanately, excuse me, fortunately FAMU will destroy the U. . . . . . . . .during half time.

I listen to that audio Sun. night and the Saints just beat the jets. The jets offence shut down Drew Brees but our defence ran a 99yd TD interception and one other DF TD  i forgot what it was. I kept wondering what Ray meant by that. Does anybody know what other sport can score points of defence?

Musicman I knew if anyone would comme up with an ansewer, you would. Listen I have a question for you that only you could ansewer in you humorous way. it has nothing to do with football.

Why did God create Adam then Eve? If God says several times that it is not good for man to be alone, why not create them both at the same time?? Did He not create male and female animals, birds etc,etc,etc.

Why create Adam first?

Fair question Darren,

Let's consider what God had in mind when HE began to create.
To raise up a family that would be under the direction of God's favorite son Jesus.

So, since Jesus was to be the perfect example to replace the imperfect prototype [so to speak] and bring many sons to glory and since Jesus was a male and embodied the characteristics of leadership of the perfect male, it stands to reason that the prototype, Adam had to be similar.

It helps to keep in mind that the male and the female are perfectly suited for their purpose.  Both are of equal value in the team goal, but one had to be the leader and be responsible for the results of the team activities. 
[democracy doesn't work when there are only two each having personal opinions in a partnership.  Eventually one or the other has to break a tie vote when an impasse occurs] 
So, in my view, God appointed this responsibility to Adam along with all the attributes necessary for a successful result IF they obeyed God or even if they strayed part of the time.  It generally works for the best if true love is expressed.

So, for all the reasons we can put together for why women need certain helps in their long lives of reproduction and child care, God made the man to have certain strengths and authority that would allow the team to succeed.

Since it was determined that the man would lead, God then made Adam first. In that way God established Adam as the leader in Eve's mind in case Eve later questioned the arrangement.  And then God gave Eve a desire for her husband, an instinct so to speak, that drew her back to him even when his leadership was imperfect.  In that manner and in other examples we may think of, God shows us through observation of our nature what our roles should properly be.

I suppose we could wonder in a similar manner why the savior had to be a male.  Are we going to envy Jesus his preeminence, because God chose to have only ONE Lord with ALL power in heaven and in earth?  [at least until the next age]

Also, this arrangement with males having a leadership position in relationship to the average female may be only temporary.  The time is coming when we will be spirit and our distinctions may no longer be according to sex, intellect, age etc., but according to how God is using us and how we are serving.

Just my view and hopefully in accord with scripture.

To tell the truth Bob I never gave my question that much thought. This is why I put my post in the off topic discussion. This really was not a serious thought and I thought it would be a great question for someone with a special personality, (ie) musicman. lets keep it light. But on a side note Bob your post was very thoughfull and informative. Now lets get back to some NFL action. Who's a giants fan?? Saints against the Giants. This will be a great game. Two unbeaten teams going head up.

Hey that's good Eileen!!  When I want to know something about football I usually ask someone who really loves their team! Then I get all the good info! My 12 year old grandson loves to tell me about football.. shhhh...Don't tell Musicman, but my grandson is an AL Crimson Tide fan and he likes.....Nick Saban!!!  :o eeeekkk!!! Former head coach of the Miami Dolphins....eeewwww, I am in trouble for even mentioning that name!!! heeheehee!! Just do not tell Musicman that I said that name and the Miami Dolphins in the same breath!!!  :-X He'll turn into a werewolf!!! (Not Nick Saban, Musicman!!!)    :o  heehee!.. Now where did I put those silver bullets??  :D

Thanks Claudia, I agree. This city needs to cheer. For the last 6 weeks people been having a spring in their steps. The Saints wins sure make Monday mornings feel good. One can feel it throughout the whole city. IT'S A TRIP!! Yes I can't wait to meet you and the rest of the family.

                                                      Darren

   

PS FYI people down here don't care for Nick saban. They feel like He abandoned LSU and down here LSU is a very big deal.

Hey Darren,
I know that, too...Nick Saban will get canned at Alabama as soon as they lose to Auburn!! yeowch! I read where he was one of the highest paid college coaches at one time..over an 8 year period he earned 32 million!! Puuuleeeesse!! Geez, 4 million a year..aww poor little guy how did he survive??? Lets see over a lifetime most of us poor schmucks only dream of earning even a small FRACTION of that (a VERY small fraction!!)...how rude!! :P oh well...life goes on!

Post by: musicman on October 21, 2009, 07:07:00 PM
I will say this about Nick Saban.  He appears to be quite athletic.  I was looking in on the Tide's game the other night, and it has come to my attention that Saban has been doing a constant hand stand since becoming the Dolphin's coach 5 years ago.  That's right.  It is now obvious that it isn't his face that we are looking at.  That, my friends, is Nick's butt.  For every a'ite and every time he belittles a media person, and every single lie, (ex. "I am not going to be coach at Alabama", one month before taking the job), surely we all know by now:
