    To be honest, I could hardly think of a better bookend to Brady's career than to beat the Rams for his sixth ring and ride off into the sunset afterwards.

    Humbug, sir! There is no Adam Vinatieri to pull the Patriot's fat out of the fire this time! Mark me well, this year, there will be a reckoning!

    Until Gronk sees the reckoning and runs over it for the deciding touchdown? So basically, a Gronkening?

    Hey there's a Cubs world series victory in the past hundred years now, all the rules are off, up is down and black is white.

    I'll take all the World Series you can give me. I grew up in Massachusetts, but I've always despised the Patriots.

    Well, in over 50 years of following the Rams, I never saw anyone who hated them. They're no -ones rivals. They don't win like the Cowboys or lose like the Browns. Their fans don't travel like the Raiders...AH! You hate the owner! You're from St. Louis, I bet! Well, then I don't blame you; I was pi$$ed about the team's extortion treatment too.

    No, I'm a Seahawks fan, and Rams games are always the worst to sit through, especially in the Jeff Fisher days when Gregg "Bountygate" Williams was the defensive coordinator and their players were always taking cheap shots at our guys. Like one game in 2013 where they didn't seem like they were even trying to win, they just wanted to injure Golden Tate to get revenge on him taunting them earlier in the season and as the game went on they just committed foul after foul because they were angry and had no discipline.

    What a way to lose a football game. They showed Aaron literally throwing the towel after the first down.

    The Greater Los Angeles area had a rather interesting day on Sunday (Oct. 28).

    The city saw SIX different home teams hosting games in five different major league sports, in five different venues.

    The final results from all six games:

    • Kings 4, Rangers 3 (Staples Center)
    • Sharks 4, Ducks 3 (Honda Center)
    • Rams 29, Packers 27 (LA Coliseum)
    • Red Sox 5, Dodgers 1 (Dodger Stadium - Game 5 of the World Series)
    • Clippers 136, Wizards 104 (Staples Center)
    • Dynamo 3, Galaxy 2 (StubHub Center)


    Only four local teams didn't play at home Sunday: LAFC was in Kansas City (Sporting KC won, 2-1); the Angels had already been eliminated from the MLB playoffs, and the Lakers and Chargers were off. Two of the teams (LAFC and the Chargers) could not have played because of their shared venue of the StubHub Center; and there'd have been no way a tripleheader could have been played at Staples to host the Lakers.

    Well to be fair, he DID taunt them. A bounty is to be expected. But you are right, they lacked the dicipline back then to hunt him within accepted practice.

    Great hockey story as the Devils beat the Penguins, because a year after he was diagnosed with leukemia, Brian Boyle recorded the first hat trick of his career Monday on what just so happened to be "Hockey Fights Cancer night" in the NHL.

    While Boyle is in remission, sadly with cancer, you always have to add the words "for now".

    That's a really good point.

    I mean, I know my team isn't winning it all this year, but they're doing way better than they have any right to.

    Mostly because of Khalil Mack, I believe.

    That's one win. Whitewater 67, Eureka 14 in the opening round of the NCAA Division III playoffs. Next week is a big intra-state game against St. Norbert's College of DePere (thankfully it's not ice hockey).

    This is a little off topic from the LA Rams, but did anybody see that LSU-Texas A&M game on Saturday-Sunday? Thatís right, it went into Sunday. A 5 hour, 7 OT, 72-74 win over the #7 LSU Tigers. And how about that game saving ref call that A&Mís QB was down before he threw what would have been the game-ending pic? And LSUís head coach got the Gatorade bath! A&M advanced the ball until there was 1 second left, and with no timeouts, barely got a spike off before the clock ran out. With 1 play left, A&M managed to score a touchdown and an extra point to put the game into OT. What followed, a series of miraculous catches and game saving hits and misses, extended the score to 72-72, when A&M scored the 2 point conversion to finally topple the Tigers.

    I watched this game in Talbotton, Georgia, with a couple drunk relatives who, throughout the game, made ridiculous Ed Orgeron impressions and talked about how much this game affected the Georgia Bulldogsí playoff prospects. (Hint: It didnít!)

    Oh, forgot to post: we beat St. Norbert. Handily. 54-21 handily. Since I first matriculated at UW-W, we have never lost to St. Norbert in six tries. The average margin of victory was 36 points.

    Anyways, On to Bethel College of Minnesota for the Quarterfinals.

    The run is over. Mary Hardin-Baylor defeated the Whitewater Warhawks, 31-14, in the D3 Football semis.

    MHB now goes on to play the Other Purple Team (aka the Mount Union Purple Raiders) in the Stagg Bowl.

    Ohmigod.

    That was "once in a century" kind of stuff right there. All you needed was for the band to come charging onto the field and the returner running into a tuba player.

    Ok sports fans; a philosophical question.

    I just watched Alabama crush another opponent. It is the premier college sports program in the country. Year after year Alabama rakes in money for the University & the state. Yet, Alabama as a state is about 47th in the country in education.

    Coach Saban makes $11 MILLION dollars each year and has several assistants making over a million.

    Would the people of the state be better served by putting that public money into labs or for other academic purposes rather than football?

    Without going into the political side of things. Yes, but not fully. A lot of that money comes from being really good and selling tickets, merchandising, advertising, etc. So if they really compromised the football program a lot of that money would go away. There is probably a lot of money that could be moved away from salaries and into improving the school in other ways that wouldn't really hurt the program. How much is unknown, but you can be pretty well assured that many of the coaches are making a lot because the system is good and they're a part of it, rather than each individual coach is vital to the system.

    Maybe - but it's worth noting that it's not colleges where Alabama is 47th, but the public school K-12 system (and 48th-50th are all in pretty pathetic shape, between Mississippi being, well, Mississippi and New Mexico managing to screw things up in spectacular ways every so often and take 49th).

    This is a public school funding problem, and a messy one - that much can be acknowledged without getting into politics. I have all sorts of opinions on potential fixes I'd love to expound on, but there's no dancing the politics line on that one, just plowing right through it.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.
