      MI - thanks, ironically similar to the Colts year - and I'm similarly enthusiastic about them being able to draft someone who may actually be able to score! That would be a nice change.

      MAC: Nothing like the jets flying over....(Not Tebow)

      LOL (FYI, My next scheduled Tebow explosion will probably be in August when the local media starts ramping up again.)

      J-E-T-S 7-4-7. Never been to Citifield, but went to Shea many times. Trying to follow the PA system over the roar of a plane taking off isn't as relaxing as the rest of the picture I portrayed. Of course neither is the lengthy and miserable subway or car ride. A radio in the background while doing something ELSE with your life is really what I had in mind.

  2. Our cable provider just removed NFL Network from our channel line-up!!!! What's up with that??? GRRRRRRRR

      Barry, I have Dish. Not Direct. Used to have Direct, but they made me angry. My internet provider (Indiana Data Center) charges $24.99 a month. As far as snow/ice, I have never had any problems unless the storm was bad enough to wipe out my power. In which case, of course, I wouldn't know whether my service was working or not.

      Thanks for all of the replies. The house I bought last year used to have Direct TV and the dish is still mounted on the roof of the garage, but I wouldn't be able to access it to clear snow and ice without fear of hurting myself. Maybe if I got it, they'd take that one down and mount it on the side of the house? I always got the Colts on the local CBS affiliate, but now that they aren't as good and the Bengals are better, they'll start showing more Bengals games, even thoug...

      I'm pretty sure they would, Barry. The story about why I was angry with Direct is too long to post here so I'll send it to you in a message. Reading it may give you some tips in case Direct does give you a hard time.

  3. Back after an extended absence. Some of you know about my 23 year old step-daughter who has battled health problems since the age of two. She passed away on September 13th and I've been in New York with my wife. Good to be back, but still picking up the pieces.

      So sorry for your loss Barry. Please accept my prayers & condolences during this unsettling time. May you & your family find some peace over your daughter's passing & the life she led.

      trending the same way Gramz...Indiana had tornadoes and flooding from Munster the Evansville....gotta watch it...

      I think it's time they just moved New Orleans to higher ground...who builds a city below sea level and on the coast?

    4. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      @Barry, I know, and on an important eco system too, but the history there, can't be redone, needs rethought...any flood plain, very risky to populate. Stay safe everyone, I do hope there are no tornados

  5. What happened to winter???

      Yes, snow can be beautiful, pretty, picturesque, and nice to watch fall as long as a person doesn't have to dug their vehicle out from the elements if they don't have an exterior garage I suppose.

      Nice Ron Winter reference Brent. Just out of curiosity, does Ron Winter read Robert Frost poems in the middle of raging snow storms with his Rottweiler named Red seated next to him? Sorry, I got preoccupied with the R sound in that sentence for some reason...No Real Rhyme Reason or Rationalization for such Rhetoric...HA! HA!

    4. Gramz

      I am just fine with the Winter we've had :-)

      Yes SW1 if we did your 5 day weekend then the weekend would be our strong end. I'm a product of public education and this is giving me a headache!

      Yes, I hope it's a good game! That's primarily what I want to see, as long as it's a good game I'll be happy & flipping out if they win. That IU/VCU game was very tough. I ended up going to that IU/KY game Dec 10th in Bloomington where Watford hit a triple at the last second to win. It was crazy seeing everyone rush the court.

    3. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      LOL Brent, it's on :) Kayla, it will be a good game indeed, most likely a "who is holding the ball last" game.. will be exciting and what I love about the tourney!

    4. KaylaD

      KaylaD

      Oh yes will be great. This is why I watch college basketball and not really the NBA as much. I find college a lot more exciting. I can't wait for the game,...I hope my team comes ready to play! I can't imagine being there...that would just be awesome.

  8. NLCS Game 3 is today...GO CARDINALS!!

      stinking "threat of rain delay" fans not happy! flooded on my side of the state though

      MI: Did it rain at the park? I never checked....we got doused in Indy...Geist needs the water.

  9. Really tired of hearing about Jeremy Lin...and tired of seeing the same 6 NBA teams on TV. How about someone put a Pacers game on national TV???

      I haven't watched the Pacer's since Reggie left...man he was fun to watch, the NBA has lost it's charm for me!

    3. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      I loved those Reggie led teams until "the Brawl." Used to go to Conseco with my mini season ticket package....have some cocktails and enjoy basketball and sellouts.

    4. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Two players in the league that will be among the best ever are no brainers LeBron James and Kevin Durrant. I am with Barry though...the Pacers are getting no respect from the national media...and we are only getting 11K plus to attend games....Ick.

  10. Edgerrin James to join Ring of Honor...well deserved!!! congrats Edge!

      Yeah, I can't remember a year like this one where Preseason Games take on a level of intrigue similar to a regular season division rival. Playoffs? You wanna talk about playoffs?!! Next year Jim Mora. Next year.

    3. BNS

      BNS

      It is nice to be excited about the preseason for a change...so many roster spots up for grabs. And, a chance to get to know all of the new Colts, too.

      "Thanks for [all] the [wonderful] memories" as Bob Hope would say. Peyton may you continue to have a prosperous NFL career regardless of your next franchise home. You represent everything that is good, wholesome, & enthralling about this great game & I admire you for that Peyton.

      BrentMc11

      I am wondering why there has not been an announcement on Colts.com....some of these comments would not be so mean if we did not have to hear all of the News from Morty and Schefty...a PR disaster in my mind. Thanks for the run 18.

  16. I guess the Cardinals like to be dramatic...Game 7 tonight...winner goes to the World Series.

      I can't believe it, really thought this would be over by now. The Giants didn't want to give up that easy, home field helping. Tigers are waiting!

    3. BNS

      I'm not real confident....Holliday is out and the Giants are on a roll. But, it ain't over til it's over!

      I agree...it's just one pre-season game, but I think it set a tone. I believe the pre-season is more important this season with so many roster spots up for grabs.

    3. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      sounds great! I love hearing it was a "team win" Go Colts!

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      Preseason games are primarily used to evaluate & discover fresh, new, undiscovered rookie talent. I never put much stock in these meaningless games at all. Yes, they are useful in tweaking o-line & d-line configurations, but victories or losses don't really matter here. It did serve to calm the fans nerves though. But, beware of swinging the expectation pendelum too far in 1 direction.

  18. Enjoyed a great day in Indianapolis yesterday at LOS watching a Colts win!

      It was a good game, and to see the 2 cheerleaders get their heads shaved in support of coach Pagano, and the coach's appearance at the game made it even more special!

      Wow, there Barry! You sure picked an exciting game to attend in person via LOS...Very nice! :)

      Nice to see the U.S. women bring home the Gold! Hey MCF, since your daughters both play soccer themselves, do they each have a favorite player, and if so, who is it? I'm just curious...

    1. BrentMc11

      BrentMc11

      Same here Barry. I posted before and after. Cleanup tough when it snows....then 2 inches of rain Thursday coming with some more March thunder. I also feel for the Alabama folks that lost their homes for the 2nd time in 10 months.

    2. MIColtsFan

    3. southwest1

      Yup, natural disasters are certainly sad & scary, but the National Guard & the American Red Cross specialists & volunteers are amazing. I will always sing both of their praises as organizations!!!

  24. We're goin' Bears hunting this weekend!!!
