The Front Porch / Re: Good (or bad) Movies PART 2
« on: May 27, 2017, 10:15:26 PM »
It's funny. We all have our fav actors  nd actresses. For some reason Kate Hepburn was never a fav of mine. Some times I even go out of my way to avoid watching her movies. I know she was a great actress, but there was just something about her that I never liked. So the African Queen, though a great movie and I've seen it many times, just isn't my fav Bogie movie.

 If you are a fan of Bogie, have you ever seen The Treasure of the Sierra Madre? Maybe Bogies best role EVER. Just a wonderful movie and has one of the best lines in movie history towards he end.

How quickly we forget, in this 'What have you done for me lately' world.  Sorry guys but Cruz always has class and probably still has 10X more class than most players today.

Sorry, but I wish Victor the best with the Bears and I, for one, hope he has a great year   :ok: :ok: :ok: :ok: :ok:


And just for relevance, how are all ur WR's going to think when each one will always think they are open and Eli only has one football. Does anyone think Beckham's numbers might go down dramatically since Eli now has several other legitimate options.

So does this pertain to catching a ball for a 1stdown , recording a sack, making a good tackle????? Are we now going to see the recreation of the 'sack dance'??

Personally, since I am a 'NFOG' (no fun old guy), I would love to see guys concentrate the game and not their celebrations.

3 more significant changes

http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/4-rule-changes-the-nfl-is-making-to-rosters-celebrations-and-overtime-in-2017/ss-BBBsvH4?ocid=spartanntp#image=5

So the No Fun League is allowing more fun==so I am a traditionalist, the less fun, the better I like it. Maybe OBJ will spend his 'extra' free time designing nw routines??

Rosters going from 90=53 in one fell sweep. No more 75 man cut down date. Myself, I think this stink as it doesn't allow some vets who might be cut early, to catch on with other teams. Now everyone gets vcut the same day, and it might be hard to catch on and then play the following week. Bad change.

Last is allowing 2 IRed men to return after 8 weeks, instead of wht we now have, one. Good change, so teams can now IR two important men and bring them both back when the time allows.

Since we are only allowed 3, and several of us have already had a BBQ with Harry Carson, I'd like to say him, but there are others I would love to break read with

YA Tittle
Tom Coughlin
There are just so many others, but I'll pick one I would love to just sit down and listen==Pat Summerall. He would have some terrific stories both as a player and broadcaster about the Giants.

Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but it is the first I've heard of it.

Changing OT from 15 minutes to 10, which probably means more ties. As has been said, what's the big deal for that extra 5 minutes. BAD change.

The Front Porch / Re: Better Call Saul
« on: May 23, 2017, 02:22:56 PM »
Overall, I wouldn't say yesterday's chapter in the life of Jimmy/Saul was the best so far. To me it was like episodes of TWD where they just can't hit a home run every week but even at that any hour spent with Jimmy/Saul is better than most hours spent with anyone else on TV.

So Jimmy is feeling the effects of he suspension as is hustling, but no one is biting.  Chuck was absent from this chapter, but Mike is back in action. I still enjoy every minute of this show.

If OBJ is the Giants best player since LT, what does that say about HOF Mike Strahan and future HOF Eli Manning. What has OBJ played so far, 3 years and you already have him in the HOF along  side these guys.  /sarcasm/ /sarcasm/ /sarcasm/ /sarcasm/

Agreed OBJ may be our best weapon RIGHT NOW, and workouts are voluntary, but it still is a TEAM game and not a 'ME' type of thing, in like, "I don't feel like being there as it really isn't my thing". People keep saying that the light bulb will eventually go off and he will grow up---WHY, there are so many other primma donnas all over the league that still have never grown up, why think OBJ will? What you see is what you get, enormous talent in a child's mind. Either we accept that or we get rid of him. AND, I agree fully, if he was with any other team he is very easy to hate.

My parents moved to Florida, and within 6 months my Dadd passed away. My Mom was developing Alzheimer's and after about 6 more months, couldn't stay by herself. We brought her back to NY and she tried to stay with us, buy I worked and my wife had 3 kids to take care of. When my Mom went out and got lost 2 separate times and she almost started a fire with our young kids in the house, we had no choice but to put her in a home. She had no real savings so it had to be a state sponsored nursing home. By this time she really didn't know what was going on and it was hard on everyone, especially when we visited. The home was OK and they treated her well, but it is such a sad disease and we visited as often as we could, but she didn't even know who we were whey she passed.

You have to do what you have to do to still enjoy some of your life. Overall, it is for the best.

I fully agree with Jim. We love to talk movies, so jump right in.

If you read thru some of the pages, I usually try to see one fairly recent movie a week and write w review of it. I won't go into how many other movies I watch during he weeks. Like yourself, I love to flip thru the stations and see a movie that I just cannot turn off. I agree about My Cousin Vinny, I always seem to say, I'll watch a piece I enjoy and end up staying for the entire movie. So many other movies like that for me. The other day I found Gladiator, and I just love that movie. I had to stay till it ended, same for movies like Braveheart, and the oldies like Casablanca, High Noon, and my favorite all time movie, The Maltese Falcon (Bogie is my fav actor).

Jim

We were watching some movie on TCM and Ben Mancowitz (SP) came on afterwards and said something I really thought was great. He said that in Hollywood's 'Golden Age' movies had to  have a great story,great writing and great acting as they didn't have anything to blow up.

So really true.

We are on a roll right now. WE wanted to watch the new release of Guardians of the Galaxy II, but we never saw the first one, so last night we sat down to watch 'Guardians of the Galaxy'  starring Chris Pratt and a bunch of known people who have minor roles.   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2015381/I know I've said this several times over time, but I am usually not a big fan of Super hero type movies, and these type of comic book features. In fact, I usually avoid them as I feel they are more 'bubble gum' type of movies, if you know what I mean.

So, my son said he saw this flix and it wasn't too bad, so, as I said, we sat down to watch. There is simply now way I can describe the plot as in most movies like this, the plot is the least of the movie. Several people are after this orb and do spectacular things to get it and it's amazing power. I know this movie, when it came out, was a 3D movie, as most action movies are these days and you can see, watching it, how many things are sort of thrown around to give a good 3D effect. So, my opinion, it was fluff. I enjoyed it somewhat as a light amusing movie. I am a huge wrestling fan, and one of the main characters is Batista, from the WWE. AND, if you can get behind this fox/racoon (or whatever he was) as a super hero type, you will like it a lot more. In fact, I found his character to be the best in the movie (and the tree also). (You have to see it to understand this)

There is plenty of action, great special effects and very colorful. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has interest in these type of movies and, of course, it is really for any age. (there are a few references to curse words, but that is all)

So, overall, I did enjoy the movie, but if I never sw it, I probably wouldn't miss not seeing it. But, we now will watch Part 2 of this saga.

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Who is the strongest player you've ever seen?
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:30:40 PM »
I'm coming in here a bit late, but I also cast my vote for LT. I don't care he if could only bench press 50 pounds, on the football field, he was a monster. Very rarely did we ever see a 300 OL stop him single handed. He tossed 230 pound running backs around with one hand and he could bring down a QB also with one hand. He was literally, freakishly strong in all the places you needed strength.
