Re: Let's get to know each other...

What’s the worst advice you’ve ever received? I was very much discouraged from studying overseas when I was first in college. I regretted it immediately. Since then I’ve more then made up for it by my travels but I’d still like to live somewhere again for about 6 months. Not be a tourist but more d...

Re: NFL NEWS

Pats trade Gronkowski to Tampa Brillant move by the Patrioits to trade a retired player for draft pick. I'd like to see a list of deals the Patriots have weaseled over the last 15 years or so. I bet it is impressive. Very few tend to blow up in their face. The Patriots ship a 4th round pick to the ...

Re: Let's get to know each other...

Do you have a favorite relative? I adored my Great Aunt on my dads side. She was funny, feisty and loved me. She never married and had kids of her own. My dad and his siblings were very close to her so naturally my brother and I were too. We spent lots of time visiting her. She had a big house fill...

Re: Television

S1 was absolutely brilliant, I loved it. Wish it would have just been a mini-series. At least it had "War or the Worlds" beat. Only the first EPISODE was good, and from there it went straight downhill. I'll be shocked if there's a S2. War of Worlds was a slow burn to the extreme, but if there’s no ...

Re: Movies

Popped in the original Scarface (1932). One instance where the remake was just as good as the original. Modernized, sure, but one kinda has to do that with a 50 year difference in time. The original was sorta pre-code/censor, so it got away with a lot for its time. Even for today's standards, it's ...

“He was the best player in college hockey, from a dominant level controlling a hockey game,” said Minnesota’s Bob Motzko, the former St. Cloud State bench boss who also coached Perunovich on the 2018 U.S. National Junior Team at the World Junior Championship. “He had that ‘it’ factor that doesn’t co...

"He was a difference maker, he was that special of a player," Sandelin said of his fellow Hibbing native, Perunovich, on Saturday night. "Jack was the same way. You need those types of players on your team, but (Perunovich) was also a team player. He cared about the team. "You don't win championship...

Ruth on Ozark. Love listening to her talk. She would make a trucker blush, but her delivery is spot on and I smile every time she drops the F bomb. My wife and I have been talking about her a lot lately. It's not just to words she says, but how she says them.Wonderful actress. I am curious if she h...
