I'm on the verge of throwing up.  This game just made me nauseous, I'm going to puke.  It looked pretty, I wonder if it would give me the same feeling if I had played this in a non-hdtv.  I'm really hoping this isn't the effect of having the HDTV, because that would suck.

Who has told you not to say Merry Xmas Ken? I can see it if you were in public service, because you don't know who you are talking to really. I always figured this war on Xmas is something invented by Bill OReilly and the press and in reality doesn't really exist. Sure there has been some silly objections to trees and such, but I don't think the vast majority of people could care less. Even as an atheist I have no problem with it at all, Christmas doesn't have to be about religion, it can be about family, giving, or anything else you want it to be.

I wasn't referring to anyone in particular, just that society seems to be overly offended, whether it's Christmas, Hannakah, or some Muslim Holiday (sorry their holiday escapes my mind).  When a particular group celebrates something, there's always another group that gets offended.  Lately it's been politically incorrect to say Merry Christmas (I work for the government, so maybe it's different in the private sector)  It's just a word, and just because someone says Merry Christmas, doesn't have to refer to a religion.  It has a different meaning to others, some religious, some not, who cares, stop getting offended over it and move on.

In a perfect world, you could say "Merry Christmas" and someone could reply "Happy Ramadan" or "Happy Chanukah" or whatever, and both would smile and be happy with expressing their well wishes.

So why not say that then?  Had you or anyone else come into this thread and wished everyone "Happy Chanuka" I feel very confident that no one would complain.  Naednek did his part of your "perfect world" idea so why not do yours?

Not to speak for Naednek but I'm sure the the parenthetical was only a comment about the degree of political correctness that has scared off people from even saying the word "Christmas" around others, lest they somehow be offended.  In my opinion, the religious connotation of Christmas isn't even considered by most people anymore.

Thanks for explaining it to him, he's just trying to pick a fight, and he lost... again.

I wasn't aiming to be offensive, I'm just tired of others telling me I can't say christmas around various places.  I'm sorry that other people are so sensitive.

So, you are purposely only extending your holiday greetings to the Christians among us?  Is your Christmas message that the atheists, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, etc can all go screw themselves?

Just curious.  I've never understood the "War on Christmas" mentality.  I've found saying "Happy Holidays" to mean no matter what your belief system, I hope you have a pleasant season.

Happy Holidays to everyone here, no matter what your religious beliefs may or may not be.

No it's an all inclusive Merry Christmas.  I'm just tired of the political correctness over a word.

Maybe he's the reason for the cancellation.  Joel is the main character in the 4400, and he's Dan's father in the journeyman.   I think he's the next Nathan Fillion

So now blockbuster has raised their prices by $2.00.  This is the 2nd increase in the last 6 months.  Now that I'm moving back to an apartment next month and being farther away from the store, I'm thinking of switching back to netflix.  I've had Boston Legal season 2 on que since May and it still says short wait.  Just this week it changed to Very Long Wait.  We tend to watch a lot of tv shows on DVD, and they don't have many of those available or in stock.

My wife is helping with our son's Christmas party at school tomorrow. One of the games they will play is "Pin the Nose on Rudolph" and I volunteered to do the picture for it. I copied it off a sticker and drew and painted it free hand. Considering I have little to no art skills at all I have to admit I'm pretty damn proud of how it came out!

One doesn't need to be all that competent to pass all over the field against the Bengals.

let me enjoy my time Tongue  I'm well aware who they played smile  But he has looked good.  He looked good against the Vikings when he came in, and he looked even better against the bengals.

Awesome, now the Raiders need to lose, and we'll have the same record.

So it's 4th and 2, on around the bengals 30 yard line.  You are leading 20-13 and it's about 5 mins left in the game, what would you do?

Well, I tell you what Nolan did, and he's lucky they held on.  He went for it instead of going for the 3 pts to make it a 2 score game.  They didn't make it the conversion and Bengals marched it back and almost scored a TD.  Thanks to Ocho-Cinco, he dropped the pass in the endzone and niners held on for a victory.  There would have been hell to play if they scored.  Nolan  has lost a lot of respect in Northern CA, and gambling when you didn't need to, could have cost him alot.

So, is it wrong of me to choose to watch the Pats game over my niners

Yeah but the Niners are terrible.  That's a little different than giving up on the Pats because they are down 7 points in the 4th quarter.



And everyone knew what the outcome was going to be, I wanted to see a better match up.  It's not like I watched 3 qtrs and then gave up.

And besides, I dvr'd it to watch later just like I do with all the niner games.  I do it so I can skip the commercials and fluff in between each play.  Cuts away at least an hour of time.  I try to watch it the same day so that I'm not spoiled on the score the next day, but today my wife was sick and I spent my time with her instead.

At the end of the day, it's something that I doubt is going to change.  I'm sure that it's Microsoft's way of trying to 'nudge' Silver members to purchase a Gold membership.  They, of course, will sell it as adding a perk to the Gold membership and its existing members.  All in all, I think this will be a subject that will be long forgotten in a few days or weeks and everyone will have something else to argue about.

That 2nd down defelection 30 feet into the air with 1:20 left would have been intercepted against anyone but New England.

The Ravens were blitzing with great effect all night and then chose to rush 3 on 4th and 6 to let Brady run for 7 yards.

Mind Blowing.

I think it was # 54, but man he gave up on that play.  He just watched it go by, and he could have caught it, if he kept going.

I have been following this one too since yesterday. Redskins are my hometown team, and while I have hated them passionately for most of my life, I was starting to hate them less with 3000 miles separating us. This is just very sad. Taylor was one hell of a tackler and hit people hard. Don't know much about him personally but he seemed like a decent dude. Big time suck.

I think everyone has been following it since yesterday, since that's when it happened Tongue
