    Update! ... just found a site that has an old list (hasn't been updated wince we moved to the Big XII-II) of CFL players by college and it says Stan Petry wore #6 for the 1994 Baltimore Stallions!

    Yeah, more double dipping. Contains what I would consider the best country prison song since 'Folsom Prison Blues'. Released on CD on February 28th, 2006... And a later (2009) vinyl release... The best Black Keys record was a cover album, in my opinion. But I am also a bigger Junior Kimbrough fan, so I am probably biased here. From May 2nd, 2006... And... Southern/stoner rock. Very solid original songs. Decent enough - but not spectacular - Jimi Hendrix, CCR, and Acid Bath covers included. From Albany, New York... Dallas punk. This is a 2006 CD reissue of a somewhat rare (only 1000 - 200 clear/black and 800 standard black pressings) 1992 posthumous album. The Reverend Horton Heat covered 'Nurture My Pig' and paid tribute to them in the song 'Loco Gringos Like a Party'. I don't have a picture of the album, but did find an earlier picture (likely about 1985, and likely in a parade to save KNON) of the hearse (before it got the tequila bottles fin)... This works for all of the chapters. New Age/vocal/electronic/chanting covers of rock and metal songs. Green Day's 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' is the highlight of this particular release for me. From March 31st, 2006... In 1906, Sears formed the Oxford record label. They had no involvement in the recording process. This label would replace their earlier, retired Harvard label. The cylinders were produced by Columbia and Albany Indestructible Cylinder. The 78s were produced by Columbia, Zon-O-Phone and Leeds & Catlin. The records were single sided discs. The series would last until 1916 when Sears brought out their Silvertone label. A 10" from 1906... A cylinder ad from the catalog... An actual cylinder and canister...

    Well after over a year of cardio and weight work I am below 200, have lost 10 inches, lost 55 pounds, and have gained a goodly amount of muscle mass. Always got a lot of cardio actually, but never found it did much for weight. Stalled on getting a new wardrobe, but couldn't belt things any tighter. Got 3 pairs of new pants yesterday! Shirts are pretty loose around the stomach too. But I'll go with them. The best thing is that with all the strength work--especially upper body--I have gotten rid of a ton of pain in shoulder, back, and (referred from back) the ball joint under/inside the butt. Take zero Celebrex any more and far less CBD. Even can throw a bit which I haven't been able to do in 2 decades. Riding my bike up hill now is 2, even 3, gear ratios higher on the rear sprocket of my 24 speed! Doc has reduced my BP/statin meds as well. Only down side is a neighbor sorta' sotto voce asked my daughter recently if I'm terminal. I suppose now at my age the answer is yes, but not yet.

    Double dipping. I think this is the better of the two solo albums. And the other was still great. There's a little more electric guitar here than on Say Goodnight to the World, but none of it is close to being hard. CD release from 2007... And a later (2009) reissue on vinyl... I hated Mötley Crüe in the 1980s, and I still do today, but I liked this album. Released originally on August 21st, 2007... And later (2017) reissue on vinyl... Under appreciated album in their discography, in my opinion. May not have the big hits of Bloody Kisses, October Rust, or World Coming Down, but solid Type O from start to finish. March 23rd, 2007... And... I am going to flip the script here. This was originally released only on vinyl (with a book) in 1976... But it went digital in 2007... In 1907, Aretino Records was established. They sold pressings of leased masters, on a premium priced record with an abnormally large (3 inch diameter) spindle hole. They also sold cheap players and expensive spindle adapters to play these records. They lasted until 1914. An Aretino Record...

    You know it is a week to go in the countdown when the football players start to get scarce and Jim Busby starts to appear almost every day. Guy wore a lot of numbers for a lot of teams over 13 seasons. #7 for the 1953-54 Senators ... ... and the 1959-60 Red Sox

    Play Scenario #3 Fourth and 2 on the B-42. QBA1 throws a quick screen pass from the B-45 to A80 near the sideline. A80 muffs the ball at the B-46 where it hits the ground and players from both teams attempt to recover. The ball is muffed forward and goes out of bounds at the B-39. The officials spot the ball at the B-41. A's ball First and 10 on the B-39. This is a backward pass so the spot will be wherever the ball goes out of bounds. Since that spot involved the line to can, it can be reviewed. The ball went OB beyond the line to gain, therefore it is a 1st down for Team A.

    YAY! Good for you. As a footnote, the ball is allowed to “move” as long as the receiver doesn’t lose control. Keep this in mind. At some point during the year, the announcers will think it’s incomplete, and be in disbelief when the Replay Official determines it was a complete pass. Stupid announcers. 😀

    Play Scenario #2 Second and Goal on the B-8. Receiver A80 controls a pass in the end zone near the sideline while airborne and pins the ball to his left shoulder with both of his hands. He gets a foot down inbounds as he falls to the ground and when he lands on his back out of bounds the ball pops into the air. He regains control before it hits the ground. The Side Judge rules Touchdown. A's ball, Third and Goal on the B-8. A80 is going to the ground to make the catch and must either maintain control when he lands or perform an act common to the game on the way to the ground. He does neither, so the pass is incomplete. In the field of play, this would be a catch since the ball never touched the ground, but in this play since it came loose when he hit the ground out of bounds, it is incomplete.

    I think I mentioned this here when it happened: A pod of orcas tore apart a minke whale in front of a whale tour boat here a season or two ago I think it was. Mothers were covering their children's eyes and the men were screaming. I don't think the Disney-raised tourists were really ready for nature in the raw. You were lucky. I once saw a sparrow hawk or kestrel--tiny little raptor anyway--take down a bluejay off a branch with a beautiful stoop as I was drifting by in a canoe. The bluejay was as big or bigger than he was. But he hit him pretty hard, knocked him off the branch and fluttered to the ground with his talons locked in and finished him off there. Unforgettable!

    The following will be scenarios that could occur during the course of a game. I will attempt to do 1 a day. If they do come up in a game, hopefully, you will understand what is taking place on the field a little better. Who knows? The person/persons sitting around you will not have a clue, and you can become the expert, if only for that one play. The season is starting in 8 days, and I should be able to provide enough scenarios to get to the Purdue game. After that, if you have a question about something that happened in a game, chances are I didn't see it, but will be able to help explain it. In no way will I comment on any judgment calls. That is not fair to the calling official. Play Scenario #1 Third and 20 on the B-40. Late in the first half, both teams have one timeout remaining. Receiver A88 controls a pass at the B-25 and is hit immediately by B37 and goes to the ground with 0:40 remaining on the game clock. The Back Judge throws his flag and the Referee announces, "personal foul - targeting." Replays show B37 lead with his shoulder and hit A88 in the chest before he was able to complete the catch and protect himself. A 4th and 5 on the B-25, no targeting, potential 10 second runoff. There is no foul for targeting since B37 did not make forcible contact to the head/neck area or with the crown of his helmet. The ruling on the field stopped the clock, but the correct ruling (no foul) would have allowed the clock to continue running, so there is a runoff. Either team can use a timeout to negate the runoff and the clock would remain at 0:40 and start on the snap. If neither team takes a TO, then the clock goes to 0:30 and starts on the Ready.
