Now you may ask how in the world could anyone make such a ridiculous declaration. Why would anyone cough up a statement that flies so much in the face of all that is possible as to be, well, stupid? After all, death, like taxes, is an unpleasant but inescapable fact of life, or so the old saying goes. No one lives forever. No thing, no animal, plant, or fungus. Well, okay, maybe Senator Robert Byrd, but other than that, nobody.

Usually when I subscribe to a magazine I get my first issue in the mail a week or less later. I have never in my life waited 3 months for anything to come in the mail. That’s just insane.

Despite that fact, the Pirates have scored just one more run at Great American than at PNC Park in the 19 games the two teams have played against each other. The alarming discrepancy is in the runs allowed department, with the Pirates yielding 27 runs over 10 games in Cincinnati and a whopping 44 over nine follow me to se my streams in Pittsburgh.

Julius Jones- Jones never could quite please everyone in Dallas, but he showed flashes of being a very productive back. Jones will have to deal with T.J. Duckett and Maurice Morris, but if he wins the starting job he could be a great late round pickup.

The only other grainy black and white TV images I remember from that year were of the Apollo Lunar Landings. Four decades later and I still love both the Cubs and space exploration. Who says TV doesn’t influence kids?

For that matter, I doubt it was a coincidence that the little league team in those ’70s Disney movies was called the Bad News Bears, a thinly-disguised dig if ever I saw one.

If Frank Beamer and the Hokies are going to win this game, defensive coordinator Bud Foster must figure out how to stop the triple option and still be prepared to defend the pass. Should the Hokies’s offense come out and play like they have in the last three games, I think the Hokies win this game, especially if Georgia Tech’s defense can’t get its act together.
