Re: Get Matt Patricha fired!!

The Lay-in's can release Matt without a cap hit this year. Can do a lot with that cap space. According to this , Stafford's cap hit this year is $22,650,000. Also, If the Lions released Stafford following the season, it'd leave them with $24.85 million in dead cap. That'd be the most dead cap money...

Re: Get Matt Patricha fired!!

I think Stafford loves the game too much to retire; he's still young in modern QB terms. It seems every new rule in recent years was initiated to spare the QB of aches and pains. (sigh :rolleyes ) As far as trading him, what do you think he could bring? The cap hit would also be sizable. I say he st...

Re: Triple Jeopardy

Seeing the Sarah Palin lookalike as champion was my first clue something was amiss. Then as I was getting all geeked about Final Jeopardy they suddenly cut to network out of the break. I was wondering if I had gone braindead for a couple minutes or sumthin'. :shock:

Re: How Many Of You Played "The Chipmunk Song" 45 At 33 RPM?

Hmm, never tried it. What did it sound like, a normal voice?

Interesting tidbit: Ross Bagdasarian played the piano player across the courtyard in the classic Hitchcock film Rear Window.

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

I had no idea 7-11 was healthy enough financially to pull something like this off (around here, most 7-11s went away at some point in the past 10-15 years). 7-Eleven's Japanese parent company is Seven & I Holdings, a H*** multi-national retail conglomerate. Their $21 billion offer for Speedway is m...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

Speaking of gas stations, it sounds like your Speedway is as busy as the one near me. When you do run in there and don't get gas, do you still park at a pump? I do. It just seems so much easier to drive forward to leave, as opposed to parking in front of the store, and then trying to see what's beh...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

As far as 7-11's without gas, I could see them both staying open across the street from each other. Myself, if I'm not getting gas, I don't want to deal with the traffic in a gas station lot. I'll go to a party store. But you wouldn't get your Speedy Rewards. :8) I can tell you unequivocally that m...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

Didn't Marathon own Speedway? Yes - was a subsidiary until earlier this year then was spun off to became a wholly owned subsidiary. According to the articles I read, 7-Eleven was going to buy it in March but COVID-19 hit, They paid a Billion less in August for it. Speedway was never spun off to sha...

Detroit Pistons '20-'21

After new GM Troy Weaver's recent flurry of FA signings and trades stemming from the draft, I'm trying to figure out who is still on the team from last year! :shock: Off the top of my head, all I can think of is Doumbouya. [edit] Oh yeah, and Blake Griffin...but that was kind of a given. :razz Derri...
