    And don't get me started on the successes of the football team... Or the best "fight song" ever! :gt

      You are obviously proud of your alma mater as you should be. Mine only produced one mayor and a few stoned out paragliders. But we had a great view of the largest Section 8 housing this side of Detroit.

        I'm probably wrong but, didn't a very famous NFL quarterback graduate from Michigan too? -
        He may of had some success playing, I'm not sure? He may have been a sixth round draft chioce? -

          Nope, never heard of him. But, like I said, it's a BIG (10) school. :clown:

          BTW, Ken, I can't get too upset with how things got rolling in New England when the Jeter championship era started with this.

            Clearly that was not a home run because of a (SMART/IDIOT) fan interfered by reaching into the playing field taking the ball out of the right-fielders glove & there was a right field umpire too!
            On another subject. I noticed your new signature pic of your Rangers. I'd like to extend to you much like the same bet that I accepted from you.

            What's say we bet sigs & avs on who gets furthest in the NHL playoffs. You take your mighty Rangers and I will take my lowly Bruins.

              I'll take the bet if BOTH teams make the conference finals (av's and sig's until the start of the All-Star Game).

                Why wait the conference finals? Why not bet on which team makes it the furthest, period? -
                I guess "they" haven't had enough time to fully grow in yet* . . . :dismay:

                  You've obviously never been a NY Rangers fan -- disappointment is their thing. Besides, you didn't take the Patriots last playoff season. So, I guess yours haven't fully dropped yet either. :clown:

                    Excuse me!
                    May I remind you way back to last October. I believe It was when the first round ended and you proposed a bet where I had to put all my marbles on one team to go all the way and win the World Series. The Red Sox.

                    You however, would only bet if you could take EVERY OTHER TEAM in MLB! wow_rotates.gif ---> What a high-roller you are. -


                    Even though I knew it was a, "fools bet", I took the 'long-shot' (because my pair were fully grown in...), and I WON AGAIN!

                      Ooooooo. You bet on the team that had the best record in baseball and were the odds on favorite to win the series. Good for you! Further, you placed the bet after the wildcard round. So, there were only 7 other teams competing -- not all of MLB. Had you wanted to place this hockey bet you should've proposed it BEFORE the playoffs STARTED [Not wait until your team has advanced past the first round and my team was facing a game #7]! See you in the conference finals.

                        It's a fools bet. Sounds fair to me, (If I were in NY). I accept.

You should be a BIG A's fan right now.


                          See here's what I mean. You never had to pick a team. You were guaranteed a spot in the W.S. Where as I had to sweat through every series, game and at-bat to reach it.

                          You even admitted you never would of taken such a lopsided bet. I stuck my neck out and took the long-shot bet because my, pair, were not only full grown, but to take that bet, that day they were huge . . . .

                                Hey numbskull, in October of 2003 I bet you (a season worth of sigs/avatars), within hours of their loss to the Marlins in the World Series, that the Yankees would win a World Series title before the Red Sox would do so. We all know how that turned out. Eighty-something years into "The Curse." :disbelief: Jeezus. And, for the record, I've NEVER won a bet with you.
