    Hey I was just logging on to this board for the first time in a lifetime to see if we were still doing this. Guess we are. Game on suckas. Also, Aaron Rodgers is my keeper.
  2. I had to come back, as did so many others, to share my condolences with the whole AE community. I last heard from Amy a little over a year ago, we never were too close but early in 09 we talked on the phone a bit. I understood a lot about her from those conversations, and it was pretty clear then that she wasn't doing well. That was about the time most of us stopped hearing from her, honestly I didn't think much of it. Probably it was more due to us never having been too close, but I only thought of her a handful of times since I stopped going here. Usually it was when I went to call another friend named Amy and had our Amy's name come up before it. It's going to be a bit eerie deleting her number from my phone. Anyway, to everyone around here, I hope you're all doing well. I haven't been as good keeping in touch with most of you as I'd like, and there's little reason for me not to come around here on occassion to stop in and see how everyone is doing. But that discussion is for another time and another place. RIP Amy
  3. Madden Curse might have just struck in the 1st half of the NFL season. We'll see how bad Polamalu's knee injury is. Didn't look good in the replays.

    Jeter was never supposed to be breaking records. I feel old all of the sudden.

    Bradford is out. OU has no offensive line. Seriously thinking that BYU can pull off the upset.

    HAHAHA FUCK YOU RICH RODRIGUEZ!
  7. ESPN's rankings are so dumb. They were probably made in 5 minutes by an intern who is there for the financial side of things, not the sports side.

    Looks like it's time for the Yankees to begin to run away with the AL East. Meanwhile in the NL East, here comes Florida. We're looking at a lot of exciting playoff races this year. AL Central, Wild Card, NL East, NL Central, NL Wild Card, and potentially NL West.

    This one league I'm in basically does a draft over the span of a month. We all have the draft order, and since most of us can check it every day or so we usually get a round done in 2-3 days and after a month it's over with and then we have 3-4 spots to fill with free agents. It's too late to start that here, but a suggestion for next year.
  10. It's not that less active, I have less time to be online so I hardly notice it actually.
  11. Fedor deal fell through. 6 fights, $30 million guaranteed. Title shot for his first fight. Can wear as much advertisements for M-1 Global as he liked. A cut of PPV revenue would go to M-1 Global. And apparently, M-1 did not feel it was enough as they want to co-promote with UFC... thus making them an equal of sorts after Fedor retires or his contract ends and they part ways. I can understand why UFC would not do that from a business standpoint. Tito is back. Franklin vs. Belfort is the new main event of UFC 103, Hendo to challenge Silva for the Middleweight title most likely.

    I'm expecting Shaq to make a lot of WWE appearances after he retires, especially after last night.

    I can't believe how awesome that is dude. You saw everything it seems.
  14. Sarcasm. About 20 contracts from Affliction were absorbed by UFC, probably nothing will come of it unless they sign exclusive deals. Who is rumored to sign an exclusive deal you ask? Still in a believe it when I see it mode, but Fedor can really only go to UFC or Strikeforce. And I could see him in Strikeforce to do a match since he's been training and they have had a ton of people drop out of their upcoming event. Also read that ESPN UK is going to air all UFC events for "free" (You have to pay for the channel). With an agreement made between UFC and ESPN, I'm expecting there to be increased coverage stateside and the potential of UFC on ABC, the Spike contract prevents EPSN from airing UFC.

    Thread getting locked was an accident, not sure how it happened. Sorry.
  16. Josh Barnett killed Affliction-promoted events.

    Only caught it after the fact.
  18. Brett Rogers deserves the shot and was rumored by Strikeforce I heard said no.
  19. Wow Crube that's awesome.
  20. Read that Fedor-Barnett is off due to a positive test for Barnett. Overeem is injured so his match is off as well. Also read Bobby Lashley and Vitor Belfort are rumored replacements for Barnett. Lashley should take the match, even though he'll lose it's a great opportunity for him to instantly move up in name recognition in MMA. Someone who fought and lost to Fedor is going to be perceived as better than someone who didn't.

    I'm not worried about that, I have many believable stories I can use.

    Because he made a good catch lol. Oh and Joe Buck sucks so bad. Like he has no emotion at all, he made the Helmet Catch sound like a routine play as opposed to the most incredible play in Super Bowl history.

    Alright, in like 10 days I'm gonna be leaving my with my parents for a wonderful week in the Bay Area. We've got most of our plans made (Yosemite, Giants game, Alcatraz) but I was wondering if our resident Bay Arean has any advice for me. If anyone else has been there please offer recommendations. Unfortunately, since I'm with my family (and my mom, myself, and my dad are all convinced this is the last true family vacation we'll ever had) I won't really be available to hang out with other AErs. I posted this on Twitter, but here it is for others. The video raises another important point, mainly directed at Tim. If you can help me find an "I Hella <3 Oakland" shirt I will do what I can to repay you with my low income salary. We'll have to meet up, obviously, but I'm sure at the ripe old age of 21 my parents won't have a problem with me meeting an internet friend like they did when I was 11. Maybe we could go out and get a few drinks or something of that sort. I don't have the exact schedule, but I'll be in San Fran for a few days (Half this trip is gonna be in San Jose and Yosemite).
