  2. I have the .38 Special Flashback cd. It's very good. Yes, nothing groundbreaking or particularly innovative. But, like PF said, it's good music. Entertaining. That's what it's all about, right?

    The only thing that disappoints me about the cd is "Wild Eyed Southern Boys" is live, and, in my opinion, not as good as the studio version.

    I don't know that they're not respected as much as other Southern Fried Rock bands, just that they didn't do anything to set themselves apart from the rest. Musically, they are average, but it's seamless, tight, and well constructed.

    As far as the Van Zant Boys, their cd is a hard edged country sound. What I've heard of it, anyway.

  3. ok, you asked for it. LOL. Pretty cheap way to get points. LOL.

  4. Not to pick nits, but 6 for throwing a TD seems like a lot. Your QB is scoring a touchdown without leaving the backfield. He's already getting points for yardage and completions.

    I would also ditch the points per completion and -points per incompletion.

    And I've always been a firm believer that a FG is 3, regardless of distance.

    Don't get me wrong, I can live with any scoring system that's in place. I've been in a league for 10 years, and we've evolved since year one.

  5. GENESIS!!???

    Oh, man. I think I'll let Sammy handle this one. ::

    Tell you what...Laurie can head south, stop and pick up Sammy, I'll head north, stop and pick up Unc, and we'll all converge on your house, dressed like Ghostbusters, and purge the place of that stuff. RonJon is already right there in Jersey with you, so he'll be there first to stand guard and make sure no more bad music gets into your home, ok?

    we can all be there by 6.
