  2. o Well ........ if you literally give him YOUR pillow ........ the least he can do is get you a pair of free tickets to Opening Day against the Blue Jays,
  3. o A 14-point deficit at the end of 3 quarters was too big of a hole for the Bullets to dig themselves out of. PHILADELPHIA 76ers ooooooooooo..l.lllllllll.. - 120 WASHINGTON BULLETS lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll..... - 112 o
  4. o North Carolina looked solid last night in a big home win against Louisville, keeping themselves atop the A.C.C. standings. .
  5. o Cousins final numbers for the 2016 season: 406-for-606 l Completions/Attempts 67% l Pass Completion Rate. 4,917 l Yards Pasing 25 l TD's 12 l INT's 97.2 l Passer Rating He was also named to his first-ever Pro Bowl.
  6. o Scott, I specifically said the continental United States, which is the 48 states plus Washington, D.C. In regard to invading Hawaii, while it is indeed a small island and not part of the geographically monstrous continental United States, it is part of the United States, so an attack on it would be an attack on the entire country ...... hence, no country that is even remotely in their right mind would do something like that. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, but that was with the intent of destroying the United States' aircraft carriers and disabling their overall military might, that was not an invasion. The Japanese military did not remain in and occupy Hawaii, which is what would constitute an invasion. That was a calculated (and reasonable, in terms of military strategy) gamble and attack, not an invasion.
  7. o In order for a country to actually invade the United States, it would take enormous amounts of time and money just to get their Marines and Navy oversees (over either the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean) to one of the coasts of the United States. Then they would have to go from coast to coast, taking on the nation with the most powerful military in the world on their home field, and plan on defeating them. An invasion of the continental United States hasn't happened since 1812, and that's not just a coincidence. There is a good reason why it hasn't happened, and it isn't happening any time soon.

  9. o The last time that the continental United States was invaded by another country was in 1812. With an ocean on either side of it, an invasion by a foreign country is highly unlikely, either in the 1940's or today.
  10. o Mods, my apologies for borrowing the Orioles Talk section for a Hangout Club topic, but I suspect that this will interest at least some on here, so it would be much appreciated if you could let this have some airtime here for a few hours before transferring it. Late last August, when the Orioles were struggling, LookitsPuck had stated that if the Orioles made the postseason, he would not post from October until Spring Training. Well, the Orioles' first Spring Training game is tomorrow, and he has been gone the entire time. I'm going to give him a mulligan for the 2 posts that he has made since October 5th. Context means a lot to me, and I'm going to take the liberty of proclaiming that he has indeed kept his word, in spite of those 2 posts. For many of us, posting on the Orioles Hangout is nearly a daily thing, so 2 posts in almost 5 months does indeed take character and commitment in regard to doing what you said that you would do. Welcome back, Puck. We'll see you tomorrow. Patrick C. .(Oriole Fan From New York)
  11. o (FEBRUARY 23rd) Welcome back, buddy. You were indeed a man of your word. Patrick C. .(Oriole Fan From New York)
  12. o The Nationals wound up signing him.
  13. o I have a SPORT magazine from the Fall of 1970 that I bought a few years ago. In it, there is an interview with Chamberlain. It stated that he was the only player in the N.B.A. that actually had to change his jersey at halftime, due to the amount that he perspired every game. So he always wore 2 jerseys every game, without fail. I was a little disappointed to learn that he was smoking a cigarette during the interview, because I always loved the fact that Wilt was generally known for being a prime example of fitness and health. Unfortunately, when he was growing up in the 40's and early 50's. not nearly as much information about the dangers of smoking was known to the public, so that was probably a factor in him choosing that vice at all in the first place.
