Seems like things are extremely quiet around our sports forum today...

Is noone around?

-- -- -- -- -- --

So Devil - barring a total network breakdown, we are on for tonight, correct?

If "Yes"  -  Does the Comedy of Errors begin at 7:30pm?

Let's make an agreement that if we start and it appears that we don't have voice, we restart.  It isn't the same if I can't hear you laughing at my complete ineptitude.

I wonder if it will go by as fast as our baseball games.  Remember that?  

"Oh, is it the 9th inning already?  Last time I looked it was the bottom of the 2nd."

Who's creating the game?  I think the creater gets home field, but I'm not sure.

Hey Lockdown, if you and Devil can't hook up for a game tonight, I'd be interested in playing you again.  Hopefully this time we won't get cut off with 1:30 left in the game!

I'm in for tonight at 7:30. I can swing down to Miami for the game - You send the invite!

I'll try to run a lot (Westbrook for -2 yards on the play) so you can get some games in with Mike. I'm supposed to play with ScottW after you, Ponch. Mike - We gotta play some time too!

Do the stadium song settings get used in online games too? I wanna hear "I Am Woman" blasting over the PA in Miami when Ponch scores a TD against my Eagles.  biggrin

Unfortunately, no, devil.  I really wish people could hear the gummi bears theme blast when I score a TD or Taco's "Puttin' on the Ritz" when the game begins.  Poo!

Lockdown,

  I noticed that you mentioned not making it into Tournament #2 in it's post. I thought I would pop in and let you know there was a slot open, if you want it. It should still be open , I checked the league shortly before coming into work and it was down one.

I'm down for playing you whenever, Devil.  We've just gotta work out a time!  When is good for you?

I currently have "wind beneath my wings" playing whenever I score a TD. Nothing cracks me up more than to see my player celebrating like crazy as Bette Midler croons, "Did I ever tell you you're my heeeeeeero?".  biggrin

Hello Szgany:

I appreciate the offer... very much actually.  Thank you.

However, until the network code is fixed, or I can play in extreme off-peak hours, I think my online gaming will be limited to playing against Devil (and maybe Scoop.. uhhh... untaimed monkey breath, or whatever the hell his new name is).

I simply can not deal with the frustration that I experience while trying to play an online game with quality people like my fellow cg'ers, only to have numerous problems occur due to network problems that are running rampant in my games.  

The older I get, the more easily frustrated I seem to get over problems like this, and I simply can't deal.

Thanks again for the offer though.

Devil -  See you tonight.  I am having Pro-Player Stadium cleaned extra special for the Eagles visit.  After the trouncing I will undoubtedly receive, Ricky will take Donovan and T.O. out for some beer, pizza, and weed!

Millionaires on drugs!  Does it get any more exciting than that?  I could see those three getting stoned and walking into a pizza place and trying to calculate how many unique topping combinations they could create and then ordering two of each. :lol:

If we can't connect - there's always the time in between 8:00 tonight and next year when 2K6 comes out. Don't let it get to you! biggrin

And so... the bottom line is this:

Devil -  3 more wins under his belt.

I could tell everyone about the games, but honestly, I remember twice as much about our conversations than I do about the games.

After the network patch we may have more luck my friend.

Thanks for the laughs.  It's too bad we can't have spectators.  They would be amazed at our level of "talent".

Although I must say, Pinky was on fire now wasn't he?

Hey Lockdown, do you only have this disconnect problem with ESPN NFL?  I played a game with Semaj tonight, with no problems, and Devil was able to finish a game with someone else, as well.  

And can anyone tell me how to check out my own online user card?  I can check everyone else's, but I can't find mine!

Mike -

This seems to be the only game that I have ever had any consistant problems with.

That being said... it is very possible that last night's problems were due more to the massive rainstorms we have been getting in Philly, which could have been effecting Comcast cable in the area.  The reason I say that is when Devil and I were connected, it was a damn fine connection.  Most likely not the server's fault.  Who knows.

What I do know is that I hope it sorts itself out one way or another soon.

--  --  --  --  --  --  --

As far as checking your own card, the way I do it is this:

Create a Public Game under Rookie  (easier to find).

Go to all the Rookie games and find your name (game).  

Click the button down on your own created game and look at your card.  This is what others see when the look at you.

If there is an easier way... I don't know it.

Why would we have computer controlled teams? I think we can specify how many total teams we want in the league.

Well....

The common denominator of the disconnects seems to be... ME.

It must be my internet connection or something.  

I don't know what else it can be if noone else is having problems.

I am thinking of bowing out of the league as well.  It just wouldn't be fair to anyone to screw up every game I am in.

Must think about this.

Sorry Devil.... again.

Actually, I can't at 8 tonight.  Something came up.  I do want to get a game in sometime this week, though...when are you free again?  I can't play Tuesday at 7 and Thursday at 8 because of hockey.

Edit: if my plans end early tonight, I could always play you later on this evening.  I can always DVR the wrestling. smile
