Tech should leapfrog on strength of wins today.  It took OT for Bama to beat a recently ranked team.  We dismantled a Top 10 team.  Tech ... never ... punted.

If it comes down to it, Alabama is currently giving up 186 yards per game passing.  Tech could easily double that.  They're a lot better against the run, but then, heh, Tech doesn't do that much.

Sci-fi shows cancelled in Fox’s Friday Death Slot:

The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. (1993)
MANTIS (1994)
Strange Luck (1995)
VR.5 (1995)
Sliders (1996) - real big failure, lasted 5 seasons, three of them on Fox.
Millennium (1996) - lasted 3 seasons.
The Visitor (1997)
Harsh Realm (1999)
Freakylinks (2000)
Dark Angel (2000) - 2 seasons
The Lone Gunmen (2001)
John Doe (2003)
Firefly (2003)

And some of those shows deserved to die.  Notes are mine.

Off the top of my head, it's probably an availability of funds issue.  They won't release it until they have actually received it themselves.  This process can take 7-10 days domestically and they can banks can put different levels of holds on them.  Heck, my bank put a 7-day hold on the check from my insurance company for the settlement on my car.

Another question:  Did they keep it as Disney as the last one where no one dies from the Hulk's actions, only their own stupidity?

No more "Disney" than Iron Man, as neither film really shows obvious deaths, but the destruction and carnage resulting from both film battles is not in short supply. 

Yeah there's no blood splattered on the screen, but I felt there were quite a few implied deaths from smashing.

Well at least that's better than Ang Lee, where they made it a "Beat you over the head with it" point that flinging a tank over a mile into the side of a mountain would result merely in a little ringing in the ears for the crew.  There's suspension of disbelief ... and then there's Ang Lee.  Which is now my new sig line.

I also loved the use of the original series musical score as well as cameos by both Lou Ferrigno and Bill Bixby.

Stupid question (see Sky Captain and the world of Blue Screen): How did Bixby have a cameo if he died 15 years ago?

I love me some RB.  I have the initial instruments that I picked up in March with my 360.  I had RB2 and the red guitar that came with it.  I like the buttons a lot better for my RB guitar than the weird, rounded buttons than the GH guitar has.

YMMV, so I would recommend that you take to the stores or friends' homes to try it out and see which you are most comfortable with.

He's such a pendulum.  I respect him greatly for his military service and his time as a POW.  I think he's all over the place.  I've mentioned (somewhere) my dislike for him over his actions on a national stage to outlaw gambling on college sports (which is only legal in one state, which happens to be right next door).  If he had come out taking the moral high ground and presented himself like he did last night on a more consistent basis, I think he could have had a shot.  Doubtful that I would have voted for him in any case.

Ever since they built the Save Mart Center (15,000+) here in town we get some really big bands when they tour. I just can't bring myself to spend the kind of money they want for bands that have played there best 15-20 years ago.

I'm sorry, with a name like that I see Beck in a shopping center parking lot doing Two Turntables and a Microphone.

BTW - great win - that was an awesome game.  Win out, and you'll jump PSU and probably 'Bama (sorry msd, the Big 12 South Gauntlet looks tougher this year, though the SEC championship against FLA should be a doozy).

We have already jumped PSU in the one ranking that now matters...

BCS is out. Tech is 3rd on the polls, tied for 1st by the computers. Verdict: Tech is 2nd!

Winning out will be nigh impossible, methinks.  I just hope it's a loss to OU and not OSU.  Then it will come down to straight BCS rankings if Texas and OU win out as well.  If we lose to OSU, we're done on tiebreakers to Texas even if we beat OU.

As I recall, he got violent against some currency exchange workers because he did not approve of their taking advantage of the local zoning laws.

The computers correct for their stupidity by having Texas 3 and Oklahoma 6.

It just occurred to me that the syndication market seems to have dropped of from the Herc/Xena days.  Used to be I could count on two/three channels airing them on different days throughout the week.  With the explosion of channels, it seems like more and more shows of this level can find a dedicated home.  Legend of the Seeker seems to be following a distribution model that I haven't seen in years...  Any thoughts on why?

I was listening to the radio feed at the NASCAR race yesterday on the scanner and they were running an ad for McCain that seized on Obama's "guns and religion" comment and shook it like a terrier.  Very heavy-handed and unneeded in Texas.  The cities will go Obama, the vast ag spaces will go for McCain.  There's no doubt where our electoral votes are going.
