SPORTS-who's your team?

  • Not getting political here, first off. Just returned home from the Colts game against the 49ers. Vice President Pence was at the game. The Colts were retiring Peyton Manning's jersey and dedicating a statue to him in front of the stadium. Being from Indiana, Pence is a big Colts fan and friend of Mannings. The suite he was in was directly behind and above where our seats are. Several Secret Service agents and such were in all these aisles. When they played the National Anthem, several 49er players took a knee. Immediately after the anthem, you saw all the security stirring. Heard one of them say, the Vice President is leaving. Turned around and looked. Sure enough, the VP was leaving. He later Tweeted about how he could not be part of something that disrespects our country so much!!! Pretty strong statement!!!
    In my opinion, as an American you do have the right to kneel. Is it the right thing to do? No!!! The day off in NFL is Tuesday. You have alot of off season time. You also are afforded many resources as a pro athlete. Get out in your community and make a difference that way, instead of doing- LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME!!! Solves nothing!!! Besides, if those guys concentrated on playing football, the 49ers might not be 0-5 right now. Maybe those 49er players (the 49ers started all this last year) should ask Colin Kaepernick how this whole thing worked out for him. Sorry for the ramble, not passing judgement, just a thought!!!

  • Illinois is the Fighting Illini. So yes you here Let's go Illini. Lately you usually here booooooooo or you suck. It's hard to hear the boos only because I get to see the hard work the guys put in. I think we may get a win Saturday though Rutgers is really bad. @CDCAMEL6 when you come to town we need to meet up I will give you the behind the scenes tour of the new facilities on the athletic campus.

  • Some of us refer to that as a 'birth defect' (with no offense meant to those with real birth defects).
    Just trials and tribulations of dealing with being born in Wisconsin. Luckily there is a cure in later life.

    The trouble with bucket seats is not everyone has the same size 'bucket'.

  • Ok guys, if you're a football fan, I have a few things you may be interested in. I've started to pack as we're going to be moving (staying in Florida, but a move is still a move). I have some NFL items that I really don't want to package up and bring with me and putting them on ebay has been taking forever to sell the remaining supply. Tonight I have a deal for any Philadelphia Eagles fan. I have officially licensed Power Strip Bandages (the same as band aids but made by another company. Right now a single box of these is selling on Ebay for $5.99 with free shipping. The box contains 25 bandages in three sizes: "normal size, small size and the square patch". To make it as cheap as possible, i would ship them with the box folded flat to save space and keep the cost down. For only $10.00 delivered, I would ship you not, one or two boxes, but you'd get 4 BOXES for a total of 100 bandages. If that's not enough, pm me and we can work out a deal for for a few hundred more


    Never be held prisoner to your past. It was a life lesson - NOT a life SENTENCE
