    Yep, the Calumet Region. I was born in Hammond and lived there until I left for college in Bloomington, Indiana. I haven't been back there for six years, but I am going to visit my 76 year old dad the second week of July.

    You know ha ha it doesn't smell bad there any more. All the steel mills and the paint factories have shut down and now it is just a horribly depressed area of the country. The railroads aren't even very active. Hammond, Indiana had the distinction for a decade in my youth of having more miles of railroad track than anywhere in the world. You never would get an argument about being late for school if you said "I got stopped by a train" because it was almost always true.

    My grandad was the sports columnist for the Hammond Times for 50 years. In true subversive tradition he was a Cardinals fan in Cub territory and a Fighting Illini fan in Hoosier Country. He was a sportswriter people loved to hate! People opened their papers saying "Let's see what that SOB Whitaker has to say today!" and my dad tried changing his last name between grade school and middle school because he was getting beat up too much. LOL. Sports was everything back then.

    He was a Bears fan because that was before the Colts. That was the one common team with the local fans that our family had. We were super Cub Haters!

    Hey, Kimmie:

    I'm 75, almost the same age as your dad.
    I was in Hammond from 1959 to 1968.
    My wife taught public school music in the Hammond system at James Whitcomb Reily and another elementary school. She also taught at Gavit H.S.

    You were probably around then!!!

    Small world!

    I haven't been back for years, but I do remember that I had to cross 22 sets of railroad tracks to get from Munster to my job in Whiting. That train excuse always worked for me too!

    Dallas Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant says no to tradition, won't carry Roy Williams' shoulder pads - ESPN Dallas

    I'm starting to like this Williams fella. Maybe we should give him a look. :MusicBigGrin:

    I have absolutely no problem with what Dez Bryant did. :stirthepot: I mean, I know every rookie has to go through the hazing to be accepted and all that, and that it is supposedly "all in fun", but I kind of admire him for standing up for himself...and I HATE all of the scum sucking pig Broke Back Mountain Cowboys. I don't know anything about the guy...maybe he has attitude problems...but I am fine with what he did.

    I thought Sweden was supposed to be neutural??? Or was that Switzerland?? Wait...what the hell is the difference between the two, or are they the same thing??? :P

    OK. Now you've done it. You just got on my radar screen. Your fantasy football team is toast when we face each other!

    Oops, seems like I opened the box of Pandora. Here is a Europe for dummies:

    Switzerland - Cheese, bank accounts and no women's suffrage.

    Sweden - Polar bears, blondes and suicides.

    As we say in Swederland: Philadelphia - Where Eagles don't dare!

    Letting someone carry your shoulder pads is not hazing. Not carrying someones shoulder pads will lead to hazing.
    Letting someone carry your pads is like saying "you're my little bittch".

    Today...the 12th of September 2010....Marks the 50 year anniversary of the start of the old American Football League. They gave us the following...

    Al Davis
    John Madden
    Joe Namath
    Lamar Hunt
    The Super Bowl
    Don Shula
    -Remember, Don was an assistant with the Lions. He would have never made it with us cause he was too smart.

    Two teams in New York...not gonna happen without the AFL
    The Oakland Raiders...SF woulda blocked that one.

    Interestingly, they talk about the big game that showed the AFL was for real was in the Super Bowl game in 1969 where the Jets beat the Colts. But really, the benchmark game was when the Lions lost in the preseason to Denver in 1967...the most important exhibition game ever :)

    This was my all time favorite blooper. Especially the way he FLINGS the football after running the wrong way for a TD...:pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound:

    For some reason, when I see this, I think of Darth Tater. :)
