  1. Charlie Davis, 1975-79 Cardinals Aviante Collins, 2017-present Vikings ...
  2. ... and Arky lost to FSU 1-0, so the 3-seeds continue to roll ...
  3. 2006 Seahawks Marshall Harris wore #78 for the 1983 Patriots
  4. Sorry Boston, you don't get ALL the championships ...
  5. BTW, according to the Wikipedia, Alabi is starring in a show on Netflix called Family Reunion coming out this summer ... https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9153270/
  6. Anthony Alabi, 2006-07 Dolphins Charlie Davis wore #79 in one game for the 1980 Oilers, but he's not in this picture. He will get a legit picture in a few days ...
  7. I assumed that is how "poule" would be pronounced. Is it just "pool"? German was the language I took in school, so I knew about the three genders, where the words for wife and daughter (die Frau and die Tochter) are feminine but the word for girl (das Mädchen) is neuter.
  8. That image is reversed. Doesn't matter with Irvin's 88 but Harper looks like he's wearing 08. Note the yard markers and the sign in the crowd ... it's subtle. You can return to this image on August 23 ...
  9. So @Boston Frog, it struck me that the French use of a rooster as the national symbol seems rather patriarchal, especially as their women wear it on their national soccer uniforms ... so I was using google translate to figure out how the French say 'hen'. Google says to most frequently used word is 'poule', but that it is also used as an insult roughly equivalent to 'tart' or 'floozy'. The next most frequent term is 'femelle' which can also be used to mean 'bitch' (although it doesn't specify whether that is the slur use or the dog breeding use of the word). So that leaves us with 'cocotte' which seems to be used as a term of endearment. Would the French ladies appreciate us woke American men in the #metoo era calling them 'la cocotte?' Maybe the French should just go with the more gender ambivalent 'chicken' or 'poulet'. Which I assume is pronounced exactly like 'poule' since the French always drop the consonants at the ends of words?
  10. Second 9 to 5 reference of the thread, and we're only 20+ days in ...
  11. Bruce Alford, Jr. wore #80 for the 1967 Redskins. Not sure the man wearing #80 in this picture of the 1967 team is him, but we're going with that. Dan Sharp wore #80 for the 1987 Falcons. Again, not sure he's in here (having trouble spotting an 80 jersey) but this is the best I can do ... Here he is wearing 80 for the Frogs:
  12. It was only 3-0 at halftime. 10 goals in the second half.
  13. 2-0 Yanks. This could get ugly ...
  14. GOOOOOOOOOAL! 'Merica 1-0, 15 minutes in ...
  15. Today's NFL Frogs include two who got Super Bowl rings during their cups of coffee in the pros ... James Maness and his epic pornstache, 1985 Bears 1969 Chiefs Scott Ankrom, 1989 Cowboys
  16. If anyone has any interest in seeing an American team dominate on an international stage in soccer, the USWNT plays Thailand at 3pm (ET) this afternoon in the World Cup. I believe the game airs on Fox ...
  17. And Arky is through. The CWS brackets are: Michigan-Tceh Arky-FSU Vandy-L'ville Auburn-MissSt L'ville may be one of the dirtiest programs in sports, but I guess we've gotta root for them in that second bracket. Tceh actually ought to have a good shot to come out of the first bracket.
  18. No surprise, but Priester officially signed with the Pirates today ...
  19. And half the field will be SEC as Auburn takes down N. Carolina. Ark is up early on Miss for the final spot.
  20. Two of the three 3-seeds advance ... Michigan took down #1-overall UCLA and Florida State (for once over-performing in baseball postseason) swept LSU. I think this is the first time Michigan has been back to the CWS since Jim Abbott pitched for them ... Mississippi State took out Stanford. Two Supers still undecided: Auburn - UNC and Miss - Ark. Guaranteed 3 SEC teams and possibly a 4th. Blech.
  21. Mike Renfro, 1978-83 Oilers ... It was a catch. He dragged his toe. Shit, I meant to reply to this, and I edited it instead. Sorry, Duq. I don't remember what was there before. ROGUE ADMINISTRATOR!!!! I'll reconstruct: ... and 1984-87 Cowboys Josh Boyce, 2013-15 Patriots ... ...and 2016 Browns Adrian Madise, 2003 Broncos
  22. Weekend catchup ... Saturday: Joe Robb, 1961-67 Cardinals ... ... and the 1968-71 Lions Sunday: 2002-08 Edmonton Eskimos James Wright (top row, third player from left), 1978 Falcons
