    RebelsYell, Short answer is no.

    The defense is the defense until completion of the play.

    (By the way, I didn’t realize the “at” symbol worked on the Blaze. I thought that was just a twitter thing. Learn something new everyday!)

    SteChatte, Absolutely you can have everything I spend on pay-per-view, season tickets, and XBOX Live subscriptions. I’d even give you a hundred times that amount.

    I’m not sure that I understand your point, though. I suppose there are people that pay to be hurt, but obviously (or at least obvious to everyone except you) most people pay to have entertainers make them feel happy. Did I really have to spell that out? Are you really that clueless, or just a jerk?

    (Since you used multisyllabic words, I guess that eliminates one of the options.)

    I’m not sure, but I think that out-of-bounds rule only applies to the offense. Since it was a defensive player that was out of the endzone, it wouldn’t apply.

    I guess I’m not seeing the showboating. I would expect him to simply drop the ball in the endzone like he’s been there before. His timing was off, but he wasn’t showboating.

    (And I would expect players to be excited about making a 70+ yard touchdown. They’re not all that common.)

    It’s entertainment. That’s why people watch sports. That’s why people pay to see sporting events live. That’s why people go to concerts. If a singer simply sat on stage and sang songs, they wouldn’t have many people attending their concerts. (Granted, some do that, but not many people go to their concerts.) We pay to have our emotions effected, no matter what the type of entertainment.And that’s why entertainers make a lot more money than you.

    Did he say “footballers”? Is this soccer? (I guess flag “football” and soccer are pretty similar.)

    They were found close together a the end of a boat ramp. Looking at a map of where they were found, it has a road that runs straight into the boat ramp. (It’s slightly offset now, probably was straighter then.)I’m guessing the drivers were unfamiliar with the road and by the time they saw that they were on a boat ramp, it was too late.

    Here’s a map of the boat ramp:

    I was thinking of the Richard Dreyfus character in Close Encounters that took his gas mask off when he was near Devils Tower.

    Elena, you are so wrong. I like it!

    When Nebraska scheduled them, the Florida Atlantic head coach was Carl Pelini, brother of Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini. Carl used to be Defensive Coordinator at Nebraska, under his brother. It was supposed to be a Pelini vs Pelini game. Then some things happened and Carl was no longer the coach at FA.

    Actually, the play as reviewed and he did have control before he went out of bounds. From another angle, you can see that his right hand had grabbed the ball “like a loaf of bread” before he went out of bounds. This allowed him to bring it around to the front of his body. There was no bobbling as he brought it to the front. It was firmly grasped in his hand as it came around.

    If you look at it from another angle in slow motion, he clearly had control of the ball with his right hand before he went out of bounds, and maintained control after he was out of bounds. They did review the play and confirmed that he had control with a foot in bounds.

    FatherPriest, Yes, I expect you to buy two seats, buy first class ticket, ask the agent to seat you by an empty seat, or drive. There are several solutions to your problem, but the bottom line is that it’s your problem. You deal with it.

    That reminded me of the crash at Knoxville, IA in July 1979 that took the life of Dick Stoneking. That was my first sprint car race (spectator, not participant). Some of the cars had wings, some didn’t. Mr. Stoneking’s car didn’t have a wing and was trailing the pack trying to keep up with the winged cars. He never came out of the slide on turn 4 and crashed into the flag stand. The two men in the flag stand were taken to the hospital. If I remember right, one of them was paralyzed as a result of the crash.

    There’s another film opening October 17th with a similar story line – A Matter of Faith.

    The most effective parenting method I’ve used is to follow up with promised punishment. No second chance (or as I’ve seen with some parents, no 3rd, 4th, 5th, … 143rd chance). A simple “Stop that or I’ll (fill-in-the-blank)”. Followed by “And you know I’ll do it.” You have to follow up a few times, but they quickly find out you mean what you say.

    Works with kids. Works with world leaders. (I haven’t tried it on world leaders. I’m making an observation there.)

    I gotta admit. I’m confused about the whole GBLTLMNO and sometimes Y thing. Is she saying that Mrs. Obama is really a guy pretending to be a girl? Or, really a girl that wants to be a guy?

    Agreed. And, evolution requires massive amounts of new genetic information to go from a cricket to a bald eagle. This is a loss of something that it had the ability to do before. Silent crickets have less genetic information, not more.

    “If you accept genetic mutation, you manifestly accept evolution.”

    No, you’re wrong. Let me tell you why. Biology is full of complex systems. Mutations cannot create complex systems in one step (as must happen for evolution to be true). In most cases, anything less than a full working system is a disadvantage to survival, and, using the evos own definition, is selected out of the gene pool in subsequent generations. Frog-to-prince evolution required massive amounts of new genetic information appearing all at once. Evolution cannot explain that. They just hope no one asks logical questions.
