Howdy SL friends.

Every one of us has a song we feel a bit guilty about liking but we listen to it nonetheless.  Here is the place to give all your entries.  A few I will throw in just to get things rolling...

Right Back Where We Started From-Maxine Nightingale, 1976

Smoke From A Distant Fire-Sanford/Townsend Band, 1977

Life Is A Rock (But The Radio Rolled Me)-Reunion, 1974

Indian Reservation-Raiders, 1971

Draggin' The Line-Tommy James, 1971

I could go on and on, but I've gone on enough.  Input your guilty pleasures, people!

Hey friends.  I'm starting to enjoy the threads that have nothing to do with sports.  So I created another one, one that would focus entirely on one of the greatest games I have ever had the pleasure of playing, and it's called Resident Evil 4. 

Just want to welcome all opinions, comments, tips, experiences, secrets, and whatnot that you have to input concering said game.  Whether the console is Gamecube, PS2 or PC, speak your mind freely.. before Las Plagas has it for breakfast!

All right, let's try to keep this PG-13 rated (or milder), or use subtle asterisks or other such number-shift symbols.  What do you like to call opposing teams that you don't have to necessarily hate, but have to give them goofy to downright rude nicknames nevertheless?

And don't anyone get too defensive about these nicknames when it's about your team.  It's all in fun, no harm intended.  I grin when someone mentions the "Jail Blazers", because, well, it was pretty much true at one point.  So let's just shake hands, and come out swinging.  And buy each other drinks afterwards.

Let the fur fly!

Man, I miss the old arcade days.  Now they're pretty much extinct, what with the home systems having amazing graphics, control and sound.  Where's my time machine?

What do you feel was the best sports-themed arcade game?  For me, you have to go back to the days of pizza parlors or arcades in the '80s to enjoy the greatest experience in video sports...


The game that introduced button-mashing to the masses, and left you in a pool of sweat after each event.  This game was so multi-layered and each event well-detailed that you felt like you were actually on the field competing in each event (100 m dash, long jump, javelin, hammer throw, hurdles, and high jump).

Certainly the NBA JAM series will get mentions by others, or the NFL BLITZ series, or Golden Tee Golf.  But T&F will always be my favorite.  I liked Hyper Sports (the sequel) too, but the original was better.

What are your submissions, people?

I was gonna veer off the path of talking sports in my blogs someday, and that day is today. 

I'm a big fan of karaoke.. I've been doing it religiously for about 2 years or so.  Was real nervous about it at first, got prodded into it by my brother, and finally tried it.  Ended up loving it.  Got a spot in my neighborhood that I go to and, lucky me, they've got internet access to download songs for you.  And they can find just about anything.  I have handed them lists upon lists of songs to try to expand their selection.  But people still come in and sing the SAME DAMN SONGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN!  And most of these songs really suck!  Really grinds my gears.

So what ones do you get real sick of hearing?  Karaoke fans, voice your opinions.

Either submit a 12-man roster, starting with the 5 starters, then 7 bench players (include at least one of each position on the bench), and a 3-man injured reserve list of your all-time Portland Trailblazers squad.  OR: Make 3 five man teams, starting with best team first, then a 3-man injured reserve list, with each 5-man squad having a PG, SG, SF, PF, and C.  The injured reserves can be any position.  My example:

1st squad:

PG-6'4 #45 Geoff Petrie

SG-6'7 #22 Clyde Drexler

SF-6'9 #20 Maurice Lucas

PF-6'10 #43 Mychal Thompson

C-6'10 #34 Bill Walton

2nd squad:

PG-6'3 #30 Terry Porter

SG-6'6 #4 Jim Paxson

SF-6'9 #21 Sidney Wicks

PF-6'11 #3 Clifford Robinson

C-7'0 #00 Kevin Duckworth

3rd squad:

PG-6'3 #1 Rod Strickland

SG-6'6 #33 Calvin Natt

SF-6'8 #55 Kiki Vandeweghe

PF-6'11 #30 Rasheed Wallace

C-7'3 #11 Arvydas Sabonis

Injured Reserve:

PG-6'1 #7 Kenny Anderson

PG-5'10 #3 Damon Stoudamire

SF-6'7 #25 Jerome Kersey

Just missing out would probably be Lionel Hollins and Buck Williams.

You don't have to show height, weight, number, college, any of that stuff unless you want to.

What are your picks?

Genesis Sports Games

Now, let's move up in the console chain by looking back at the Sega Genesis sports games.  What titles did you love or hate among the "Nintendo killer"'s titles?  Gotta love that slogan: Sega Does What Nintendon't!

Whereas the NBA has had its share of non-impact players, so has the NFL.  Throw out some of the crappiest, most highly-regarded college stars that amounted to a big fat zero on an NFL field.  Players that are now earning minimum wage somewhere.
