O-8...

That's Tiger Woods record as a pro at Riviera, where he will tee it up Thursday. It's no secret that over time I've been very hard on Eldrick. I still would not be surprised at anything he does. In his life off the course. On the course I think he's just trying to make as many cuts as he can. I certainly think Jack's record 18 major victories are safe by a mile. It will be interesting to see who makes a better comeback between Tiger and Johnny Manziel.

what did Manziel ever accomplish that he qualifies as a "comeback" candidate?

I agree with ya spider. Johnny TD has never impressed me. Just a spoiled brat that had some talent but was pampered his whole life. I can't see him ever taking a snap in the NFL OR the CFL. Tiger is another story all together. Tiger will be a legend in golf of course. Johnny will be a trivia answer at best.

Manziel was a great college talent who doesn't have a strong enough arm, nor is he fast enough to be elusive in the NFL. The defensive ends and linebackers chasing him down are far faster and more athletic than the majority he faced at Texas A & M. Tebow is another recent example of a great college talent whose skills did not translate at the next level. With JM the personal issues make him not even worth the risk a little bit.

didn't Doug Flutie have the same knocks against him coming out of college? Too small...not fast enough...arm wasn't strong enough etc...maybe the game has changed too much since Doug Flutie's days but I recall him being really successful in the CFL and doing okay when given the chance in the NFL. Sometimes you just never know...the competitive spirit can overcome supposed physical limitations. Also, read a while back that the Hamilton Tigercats were going to give Johnnny TD a chance in the CFL...is that still the case?

You make a great point with Flutie. The difference being that Flutie never flaked out or became a "sex addict" like JM and TW did. Undersized and slower QB'are rare in today's game but Drew Brees and even Russel Wilson in Seattle are good examples. My favorite story of an NFL QB coming out of the CFL has to be Warren Moon. Moon could spin the ball with the best of 'um...

Maybe not just the basement ... check out the Forum Migration thread in the UIC Horse Racing Forum section.

i don't understand...maybe i'm missing something.

it sounds like they are migrating the forums to a new platform. why would that mean that this place will close down?

is it because of cost? or maybe dell's health? or maybe because once bpiets starts a blog there will be no need for a discussion forum as all will be revealed as it should forever be, is and always was...lol.

As I understood it we will not be able to have multiple forums under the new format. I hope I’m wrong but if not it’s going to be one massive poutine !

As I type this I'm listening to MSNBC as Racheal Madows explains in detail how the Russians have and will likely continue to disrupt our mid-term elections. It is stunning when you see a list of all the Trump people that have resigned or been fired. It started with Mike Flynn exactly one year ago. When you look at things that way...it makes whatever happens to the Basement pale in comparison...I have faith in Mr. Yount that he'll handle things in a positive manner...

I've been speaking to some of my friends in Moscow and they have offered to administer the Forum free of charge and keep all our existing data. Sounds good to me.

does this offer have anything to do with incriminating photos/videos that they have from your last visit to Moscow?

May I suggest you fellers go back and watch Stanley Kubricks film Dr. Strangelove. A classic. They discuss trusting the " Ruskies". Batton down the hatches, Trump has cut a deal with the boys in Moscow. They are NOT our friends!

Depends on the spy equipment I have available to me on any given day...

Or, if you prefer...

долго жить революции товарищи!

That's a good question spider...I think maybe we're all on own own. Trump has this country in bad shape in my opinion. I think the world is laughing at us (Trump). Israel is having problems, shooting down drowns and trying to keep their enemies at bay. Trump talks a big game but when push comes to shove I think the Middle East don't take him seriously.
