Part of me loved the idea of the Raiders getting kicked while they were down. But an equal part of me just wanted to see the Chiefs lose. Something to rejoice in either way for Broncos fans.

This could be short-lived, however, if Denver can't get their crap together vs. the Chargers. Let's start with having more Broncos fans fill out that silly stadium than the home team's.

LookajunkieGot out of detox today, was supposed to go to some inpatient rehab in south Georgia, but for better or worse I didn't take the trip. Woop woop woop

Thanks for helping make my thread a semi-success, Looka. Your not-dying has really boosted its ratings.

Also, glad you're out of detox. Think you'll be fine w/o inpatient rehab?

PaulsonI'm just amazed both teams were able to keep playing after seeing that. I would never want to jump again. Professional athletes simply aren't human.

Doesn't take much conscious thought to respond to athletic instinct. Essentially, "not thinking about it."

I hurt my ankle badly when I was 16 driving to the basket in a pick up game. I shredded some connective tissue and got a hairline fracture in my foot on top of it. I was on crutches for 6 weeks and a walking cast for almost two months after that. Rehab was a long time. I put us up 2-1, so totally worth it.

Anyway, when I make the same physical motions that led to the injury my body instinctively hesitates a little. Something primal in me says "no." I'm no professional athlete, but it does amaze me a little to see best in the world class athletes get right back on the horse after suffering major injuries.

See, and my anecdote is the opposite. I tore my ACL in college playing hoops, and while rehab was indeed long after the surgery, I don't even think about my knee being in danger anymore (I still play indoor soccer weekly).

I wonder if it partly has to do with how the injury occurred? Mine was kinda fluky (some dude literally planted his foot on the outside of my knee as I chased down a loose ball). I guess I don't even know how to find myself in that situation to have instinctive self-preservation kick in or something.

neumdaddyI feared this kind of performance, with all signs overwhelmingly in Denver's favor. Any fan with a streak of pessimism fears such things. Fuck, it's agonizing.

This is the NFL. The Steelers just had this happen last week with Jacksonville. What are you, new? Or are you related that jackass fan who has his face painted in the crowd shot a minute ago?

I tell you what, I'm not in love with Neum's posting lately. Shape the fuck up.

Christ. Of course this is a league full of professionals. Giants are likely far better than their 0-5 record. But their top 3 WRs are not even playing, their D suspect, and Denver is coming off a bye. There is every reason to expect Denver to win, even given this being a league where many things happen. It's an even more lopsided version of the Jags-Steelers last week. You're overstating your position by assuming my post represented some n00b "WTF where did this come from?" perspective. Of course this stuff happens, but that doesn't make this any less horrendous even in context. But, to your point, this game doesn't count for 5 losses. Just one.

ShocKedRefs just completely fucked up on the touchdown-to-touchback ruling. Dumbest decision ever.

I just saw the replay of that. Wow.

Romo just did the Dumb & Dumber / Jim Carrey bit for "Samsonite... swan-Swanson..." for JuJu Smith-Schuster. Awesome.

Packers yet again exposed as a highly mediocre football team once their future HOF QB goes down. It'll be interesting to see how they go through their death flails the next few weeks as Minnesota and Detroit surpass them in the division.

But yeah, down goes Aaron Rodgers and yet another mega NFL star.

Or?!

Fucking Nats.

Goddamn it. Do I have to root for the Cubs to win the NLCS now? Ugh, I'm so confused.

A list was made, neum.

Yeah, I should be hating on the Dodgers more than the Cubs, but the Cubs fans have made it worse since the middle of last year. By default I kinda have to root against them.

Still, Bigwig is right. Indians and Nats going down in the divisional series were big blows to MLB rooting interests. It's Houston or 'bleh.'

Man, I don't care about the beer. Seriously. Glad you're doing well, though, and hopefully on the road to improvement.

I can't tell if this is a joke or not.

It was definitely a joke. But that doesn't change the fact that he's dead.

Facebook UserHe's right about this. The T-Meter or really any site that spits out a number attached to film criticism is gross. It simply isn't useful or proper to know x% of critics say when forced too that they like(or recommend) a certain film.

But it's okay for TV, right?

I'm quite the PKD fan, so I'll be checking this out.

ejSo, neum, what are we to make of Kylo flying back towards his mother into some gaping oblong hole, his shaking hand poised to pull the trigger?

Oedipal thermal exhaust ports. THEY'RE GOING THERE.

The trailer had a lot of beautiful imagery. I liked it, but didn't care for the edited sequence of Kylo with his hand on the spaceship trigger, repeatedly cutting back to Leia's face, as if he's about to shoot her down. Even if that's exactly how it goes in the movie... bleh. (probably need more context, but in a trailer it looked dumb)

Otherwise, I think saying "I don't like it" almost amounts to just not being overwhelmed by it. I still have high hopes.
