  1. NFL2016 Week 5: Somebody Needs A Bigger Locker

    Agreed! But I'm not talking about just who wins. I'm also talking about how it seems to me that the Thursday games are just generally...weirder. It may just be my impression, but I think they are less typical in game flow, quality, etc. Maybe the "Color Rush" is effecting my perception!
  2. NFL2016 Week 5: Somebody Needs A Bigger Locker

    Yep. Thursday night games generally seem to be like "bizarro football".
  3. Hurricane Matt

    Yes, stay safe everyone!
  4. You mention Jaehaerys II (good call!) but I'm even more interested in Jaehaerys I. I would love to know more about his, his wife Good Queen Alysanne's, and his Hand Septon Barth's interest in and relationship with the North? Also, he inherited the war with the Faith Militant and was somehow able to preside over 50 years of peace, etc. I would also love to know more about Aegon V and what led up to the tragedy at Summerhall. Fortunately, I think we're going to get more info on that from the Dunk and Egg stories. But, as was mentioned up-thread, I would really enjoy learning more about all the Targaryens - they're fascinating!
  5. NFL 2016 Week 3/4: The Darkness Peers Back

    Yep, that was smartly done. Except someone needs to tell them that "getting rid of the ball quickly" actually doesn't refer to quickly giving it back to the other team! And, yes, Miami's uni's are offending my eyes...and my sense of decorum
  6. Was Lyanna Stark the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

    My point always was and remains that we simply don't know for sure. And that's why I find the idea that because we never got absolute confirmation that Lyanna got "formal" weapons/jousting training it absolutely means she couldn't have had any training... unconvincing of anything, really And, yes, for the record I will continue to believe that it's most likely Lyanna was the KotLT until Martin gives me more info to work with
  7. Was Lyanna Stark the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

    And, yet, people still often use the fact that something isn't there to "prove" or assert that then the opposite must be true! Hmm...
  8. Was Lyanna Stark the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

    Agreed that Rickard Stark forbade his daughter from carrying a blade. But that in no way proves that she never received any training, "formal" or otherwise, in the use of a blade...or any other weapons for that matter. My point remains that we simply don't yet have enough info to say one way or the other.
  9. Was Lyanna Stark the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

    Well, as to the "lack of formal training" - how do we know Lyanna never had any "formal" training? What is "formal" training anyway? If her oldest brother, Brandon, humored her a bit and gave her some pointers/training, would that constitute "formal" training? My point is, we don't know for certain one way or the other. Also, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. What we do know, for a fact, is that Lyanna defeated/chased off three squires at the same time with nothing but a blunted practice sword. And, of course, squires do have some "formal training" with swords, other weapons, and fighting in general.
  10. Am I a coward?

    Nope, you're not a coward. You do it or you don't do it...on your terms, no one else's!
  11. NFL 2016 Week 2: extending the mustache ride in LA

    Hey! My fastest 100 meter sprint was 11.25 secs (that's why I didn't mention it). I was a slightly better 200 meter sprinter (something about running on the curve, I think). But I was really only interested in the 4X100 and 4X200 relays and qualifying for the state track meet. I was the starting leg and we went to the state meet all four years of high school. So...that was fun at the time. That's interesting that you had to have an alternate. Luckily, we didn't. In my small school, not only didn't we have an alternate but we barely had four for a relay team. In fact, we had three relatively good sprinters and the equivalent of a guy off the street We put him at second leg in both relays and we set it up so that he received the baton near the end of the exchange zone and passed it to the third leg near the beginning of that exchange zone. So the first and third legs were covering about 10 meters more than the second leg. Eh, it worked out alright How can you say that about the great state that actually produced Carson Wentz?! Who wouldn't want to stand on this hallowed ground?!
  12. NFL 2016 Week 2: extending the mustache ride in LA

    I was a decent sprinter in high school (good enough for Class B North Dakota high school sports anyway). Now, it'd probably be more appropriate to measure my 40 time with radiocarbon dating And, even more important- I am, I shit you not, right this minute, literally, like 10 blocks away from where Carson Wentz went to high school! Who wants to touch me?!
  13. NFL 2016 Week 2: extending the mustache ride in LA

    Yeah, me, too! But we run impeccable routes! I mean, when you're running that slow it's kinda difficult to mess up a route...what with being able to count steps on your fingers and all
