    I'm in my 40's now and Animal House was "thee" comedy of my generation. I remember seeing it with a buddy and we went right back out and saw it again the very next night 'cause we missed so much dialog laughing at it! Ghost Busters, The 40 Year Old Virgin and MIB also rate high with me as well as Rodney Dangerfield's "Back to School". For more innocent comedy that's not nearly raunchy enough for the under 35 crowd, "Support Your Local Sheriff" with James Garner and Jack Elam and "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" with the late Don Knotts still make me laugh. To this day I still shout out, "Atta' boy Luther!" or "And they used Bon Ami!" when ever I get the chance.
  4. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos signed free-agent safeties Marquand Manuel and Marlon McCree on Sunday to provide competition for holdovers John Lynch and Hamza Abdullah. ESPN.com's Matt Mosley, Mike Sando and Pat Yasinskas are following the NFL free-agency frenzy and sharing their thoughts. Get the latest news from the always updated Hashmarks. The Broncos will be Manuel's fifth team. He played for Carolina last season and has also played for Green Bay, Seattle and Cincinnati, which chose him in the sixth round of the 2002 draft out of Florida. He's played in 91 regular-season games and made four starts in the playoffs, including the Super Bowl following the 2005 season while with the Seahawks. The Broncos will also be the fifth team for McCree, who started the last two seasons for San Diego and is entering his eighth season. He has also played for Carolina, Houston and Jacksonville, which selected him in the seventh round of the 2001 draft after an outstanding career at Kentucky. McCree has played in 106 NFL games, including 84 starts, and owns 16 career interceptions in the regular season. He's picked off three passes in seven postseason games. Lynch, who turns 37 next season, recently accepted a pay cut from $3.12 million to $2 million, and Abdullah, who played at both strong and free safety last season, received the low tender of $927,000. The Broncos would have the right to match any higher offer from another NFL team for Abdullah.

    That'll happen the same day Jon Kitna goes down as greatest QB of ALL-time. The movie made me laugh all the way through, and it wasn't even a comedy! Stallone movies must be taken with a grain of salt. In the case of Rocky you must swallow the whole bag. I tend to agree more with agreen on this one. At the time the first Rocky came out Stallone was largely an unknown and hadn't yet made a mockery of him self with a string of silly pretentious movies. Don't smear the original because it was followed by largely inferior sequels. And don't forget it did win an Oscar for Best Picture that year.
  6. Updated: March 9, 2008, 9:44 PM ET NEW YORK -- Matt Walsh, the former New England Patriots employee said to have tapes of illegal spying by the team, is close to an agreement to turn over information to the NFL. The NFL said in a statement Sunday night that in the last week, lawyers for Walsh and the league have made "substantial progress toward an agreement that will allow Mr. Walsh to be interviewed." "Both sides are optimistic that any remaining issues can be addressed successfully and they are committed to reaching a full agreement as promptly as possible," the statement added. Walsh, a golf pro in Hawaii, has been seeking protection from lawsuits and other legal action, whether by the Patriots or other parties. The two sides have been negotiating for almost a month after reports surfaced just before the Super Bowl that Walsh videotaped a walkthrough practice of the St. Louis Rams before the 2002 title game. It was won by the Patriots 20-17 over the Rams, who were favored by more than two touchdowns. Walsh's lawyer, Michael N. Levy of the Washington firm of McKee Nelson, confirmed Sunday night that an agreement was near. "I have consistently asked the NFL to provide appropriate legal protections for Mr. Walsh," Levy said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "In recent discussions I have had with the league's lawyer, we have made substantial progress toward this end, and I am hopeful that we will be able to craft an agreement with the necessary legal protections so Mr. Walsh can come forward with the truth." NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said Walsh was not interviewed as part of the league's investigation into "Spygate," which involved the league confiscating tapes from a Patriots employee who recorded the New York Jets' defensive signals from the sideline during the opening game of the 2007 season. Six confiscated tapes and other documents pertaining to the Patriots' taping were subsequently destroyed by the league. Goodell has defended the destruction of the tapes. As a result of that investigation, New England coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 and the team was fined $250,000 and forfeited its 2008 first-round draft choice. That pick would have been 31st overall, but New England still has the seventh overall pick, obtained in a trade with San Francisco last year. Goodell has also met with Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., who asked pointed questions about taping of both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles. The Patriots beat the Eagles in the 2005 Super Bowl and the Steelers in two AFC championship games. "As commissioner Goodell has repeatedly emphasized, 'Nobody wants to hear from Matt Walsh more than the National Football League,' NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Sunday night. In addition to the negotiations over Walsh's testimony, Willie Gary, who played in that game for the Rams, filed suit in New Orleans last month accusing the Patriots of fraud, unfair trade practices and engaging in a "pattern of racketeering." Three fans joined in the suit. Specter subsequently said that his interest might be covered by that suit. "I think now that the lawsuits have been started, that I got the ball rolling, and the plaintiffs' lawyers are picking it up," he said.
  7. Jackson: Chad didn't hit Lewis Former Bengals wide receivers coach Hue Jackson, now Baltimore's quarterbacks coach, was interviewed over the weekend on Sirius NFL Radio. The topic of former Bengal lineman Shaun Smith's comment came up: Smith, now with the Browns, told a meeting of Browns fans in Maryland that Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson was involved in an altercation during halftime of the Bengals' playoff loss to the Steelers in January 2006. "No, he's not accurate," Jackson said of Smith'c comments. "I've heard about it, obviously; someone called me yesterday to mention it to me. And if Shaun did say that I'm a little surprised because, first, Shaun doesn't work in Cincinnati anymore. Shaun works for Cleveland, and I don't know how that would come back up again when it has been dead now for a couple of years. " To shed light on it I'll say the same thing I said before. Chad Johnson never hit Marvin Lewis. Chad Johnson never hit me. Chad Johnson never put anybody in a headlock. Chad Johnson was very emotional at halftime of that game. The true story to all that was Chad had an IV in his arm and me, and him were talking about plans for the second half and he got emotional because he said, 'Hey, coach, without Carson (Palmer) I'm not going to be able to get the ball.' "And that's what it was and I told him, `Well, then you need to tell (offensive coordinator) Coach Bratkowski that.' And he ripped the IV out of his arm, and it's like anything else, you see blood coming out of a person's arm people think the worst. And he went from there to go into the locker room to let Coach Lewis know that, 'Hey, look, I want the ball.' And that was it. And when he opened the door he stumbled out of the training room so he was flailing and people think that he was swinging on people. Chad wasn't swinging on anybody. Chad would not hit Marvin Lewis, and Chad sure would not hit me. So that is not what happened and I'm very disappointed that now, even after two years, we have to discuss this again. But that is exactly what happened."
  8. Mayocks Mock Draft Update

    I'd like to think that if he's still there when we roll around and the big 4 defensive linemen are all gone we'll trade back with someone that really wants him. I'd like to think that......
  9. Mayocks Mock Draft Update

    Now that Atlanta's gone ahead and released Harrington it's hard to see them not drafting a QB this April. I suppose it's always possible they'll trade for a veteran but odds are they will use the #3 selection on a signal caller. Nevertheless, I still find it difficult to believe we'll have the good fortune of one of the big 4 D-linemen falling to us. And unless we sign another LB we may well go in that direction. Either Rivers at #9 or trading back and landing one later in the 1st. But opinions on the draft are just as useless as mocks at this point too.
  10. DT Larry Tripplett Visits

    I like the idea of signing Triplett much better than that ex-Brown DT we were working out earlier in the week.
  11. I AM IRON MAN!

    I wouldn't walk across the street to see Gwyneth Paltrow but the rest looks cool. Here' our latest poster....
  12. Landon Johnson signs with Panthers

    Okay, sorry, I thought he was on IR all last season for some reason. Well, he was pretty much on IR his whole "career" here, so it's understandable. Touchee' So here's our current Linebacking corp: Jones 6'1" 240 lbs Thurman 6'0 235 lbs (assuming he gets a full reinstatement) Jeanty 6'2" 245 lbs Brooks 6'3" 259 lbs Schlegal 6'1" 251 lbs Henderson 6"2" 263 lbs Anyone for drafting Rivers out of SC if the big 4 are gone by #9?
  13. Ocho Cinco for Torry Holt?

    I would too but unless or until Chad agrees to pay SoP back the signing bonus money its just not going to happen.
