    Well, the NFL college draft started today in Nashville, and the Giants (one of my teams) selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the 5th pick of the first round. It looks like Eli Manning's days are numbered.
    Veteran scout Gil Brandt thinks that Jones compares favorably with Eli's brother Peyton Manning. Wow!
    C'mon 99. Did you ever hear a recruited quarterback NOT be compared to a young hall of famer? I've never heard any draftee called so-so but what the hell, he's better than nothing. 😊

    Hey 99, they are buzzing about the Giants number six pick for a Duke QB as being a big mistake. Defensive End Josh Allen from Kentucky was passed over. A QB would of been the better pick for the Giant's with their number seventeen pick. Turn on ESPN. What a blunder! 🤡🔫💥

    In defense of hockey, which I've played and love, let me say this regarding watching it on tv. It is an awful situation to view and broadcast. Unlike a football or basketball a puck is hard to see. Thus all the close ups. Unlike baseball, a puck follows no predictable path so it's hard for a camera to keep up with. This causes you to miss all the action going on. Hockey is made to be seen live where your eyes can follow all the action. And there is a hell of a lot of fast paced action. Like a human pinball game. See it live and you will see what hockey truly is. There is a reason those guys are sweat soaked thru and thru at the end. As for the karaoke, talk about getting off on a tangent. Think I'll sit that conversation out. Turkeys are gobbling and crappie still biting strong. GO BLUES!

    I would talk hockey all the time if there were any hockey fans around, but you're all just same-old, same-old mainstream American football fans. Yawn.

    As you and I know Matt, there is no better sport than that of hockey. And those others of you who are looking for a fast, hard hitting game, one that is built on speed, athleticism, hand to eye coordination, fantastic maneuvering on a blade, and almost non-stop action, need to look no further than hockey !! I know you speak well of soccer Matt, but I will forgive a mistake now and then lol, and still talk with you about this great game. My Red Wings are a far cry from their years of dominating the NHL, but I will stick with them until their return up to the top of the ladder.
    Big loss for Detroit a couple months ago with the death of Ted Lindsay. He was one of the greats.

    As a Rangers fan, I now know what it feels like to be on the bottom, though our rebuilding is looking good and the draft was very good to us. Detroit's got some promising youngsters, too. Two or three years and I bet our teams are contenders again.

    I think scoring was mostly luck because the puck could just as easily have hit the goalie in the face mask as whiz past his ear.
    I would sooner watch a soccer game.
    Some players are very accurate even with a slapshot; at other times, it's basic policy to just send the puck toward the net when you don't have another option. As for skill, watch some of the passing plays, like sending a saucer-pass fifty feet over a defenseman's stick so it lands right on your teammate's stick -- or the way some players, while they're in front of the net, can deflect their teammate's 100-mph slapshot -- or the pinpoint accuracy of a top scorer's wrist-shot. But yes, it's like any sport: Those familiar with all the ins and outs, subtleties, or whatever the term, enjoy it, while those unfamiliar have a hard time getting used to the way it differs from the sports they do watch. I've converted a few non-hockey fans by taking them to games and making sure we had good seats. Just being able to see the damned puck makes a big difference to a lot of people.

    My friend's ex girlfriend back in the late eighties, sang Crazy by Patsy Cline. She was fantastic and sang that song almost as good as Patsy. RIP

    The onside kick does not help.
    The game is fine the way it is ! Why gimmick it up with goofy rule changes ? I agree with Matt’s comments on the game, well said !

    Nowadays my only singing in public is when I walk around Walmart. For some reason I often find that the song is "Red Solo Cup." I get a lot of smiles from people.

    I have a friend back in Texas who has a singing voice that sounds like Johnny Cash. R.I.P.
    He will sing at house parties, but would never get up and sing at a karaoke bar.
    I once heard it said of an ever-willing singer that if you didn't like his singing, you had to admire his nerve.

    I would not sing in front of strangers either.
    Now, if I was getting paid like a famous rock star, I would do it in a heartbeat.
    I would rather laugh at others looking like a fool. 🤣

    At a friend's sweet-sixteen birthday party in high school, I not only did a Bruce Springsteen "Born to Run" karaoke (actually a full-on Bruce impersonation), but also sang "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin,'" just like Maverick did in Top Gun, only it sounded better.

    This was at the local country club. My friend's family was pretty well off. My jacket and tie were hand-me-downs and I could dance about as well as most backwoods farmboys. But after I sang those songs, I was very popular with the ladies the rest of the party, including some good-looking moms. So yeah, 99, I second Pighunter's advice. Throw those fears aside and live a little.
