Re: "Redskins" to be renamed

:rolleyes Warriors (jeesh!), just like Wayne State U. who used to be the unique and totally PC Tartars. It was my understanding that the powers-that-be thought no one knew what Tartar meant other than the sauce one puts on fish.

Re: Cleveland Indians considering name change

Count me among those who miss Chief Wahoo. :( Keep the name, bring back Chief Wahoo, and shoot the guy in the back row pounding that hideous incessant tom-tom.

Re: Ennio Morricone, dies at 91

One of the biggies in classic movie soundtracks. It's difficult to nail down favorites.

Re: Hugh Downs

A fairly innocuous personality; though he wore several hats as a national television host, the only thing for which I'll remember him is being the host of the game show Concentration.

Re: Best/worst announcers of all time.

One of the greatest, and I’m shocked no one has mentioned this hockey broadcaster... Mike “Doc” Emrick. The best pbp pipes in the NHL.

Re: Most Annoying Commercials

On AntennaTV, I just saw a most awful spot for a most horrifying product. "TRUMPY BEAR" A somewhat bear-looking toy that lets one show "patriotism" because when you unzip it out comes an American flag blanket. Just guessing it's manufactured in China, since it never says "Proudly Made in the USA" O...

Re: RIP McCoy Tyner

Saw Tyner and his mid-'70s combo play at a small repurposed machine shop/warehouse on Selden between Cass and Second Ave. in Detroit called the Strata Concert Gallery. Dynamite! I know a few jazz aficionados who don't appreciate his ultra-percussive piano stylings, but the flames produced that night...

Tin Foil Hat time ......
MSU grad Dan Gilbert didn't hire Beilein to coach the Cavs he hired him to stop coaching Michigan. Mission accomplished. 😁
Not really, seeing that Beilein was Izzo's doormat last season. Be sure to recycle/reuse that tin foil. :mrgreen:

Re: Food Pictures Redux

I'm sure they're good, but I've never tried lamb chops. I used to boil the meat off lamb bones and make a stew. It was great. Do indeed try them grilled some day. Given a choice between a good steak or good lamb chops, I'd pick lamb chops every time. However, seasoning is much more important with l...
