  • Butterfly Effect

    So, Oliver Luck (father to some kid named Andrew) was the back up quarterback to Archie Manning for the Houston Oilers. Back-up duties for a rookie apparently included picking up the starting Quarterback's kids from the airport. (a pair of tykes named Cooper and Peyton) Between the two of them, they managed to compose the second worse record in the league that year, which prevented the Oilers from obtaining the Number 1 overall pick in the draft that year. (The Colts ended up taking some guy named John Elway)

    Anyone else think that fate is occasionally an over-medicated child?

      here's another

      On December 2, 1995, in his 19th game (and the team's 23rd) of the 1995-96 season, Roy was in net against the Detroit Red Wings during Montreal's worst home game in franchise history, an 11-1 loss.[12] Roy allowed nine goals on 26 shots (five in the first period, and then another four in the second period), and the crowd jeered him whenever he made an easy save during the second period after the game was already 7-1 in favor of the Red Wings. In response, Roy raised his arms in mock celebration. When coach Mario Tremblay finally pulled Roy in the middle of the second period in favor of Pat Jablonski (who allowed two more goals), Roy stormed past him and told team president Ronald Corey "It's my last game in Montreal."[13] Roy later told the media that despite allowing five goals on 17 shots in the first, Tremblay kept him in net in order to humiliate him. He also said that he would not have demanded a trade if Tremblay had kept him on the bench in the second period. The next day, Roy was suspended by the Canadiens. Four days later, Roy was traded to the Colorado Avalanche.


      currently, Patrick Roy is tied with former Habs coach Mario Tremblay for the best start for a rookie NHL Coach with a 6-0 start. Patrick Roy can break his record tonight with a victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

      you can't make this stuff up

          Wonder where we'd be right now had Dwayne Bowe not fumbled that onsides kick against the Chargers back in '08.

                  Same here.

                  I don't know what all the fuss was about; I saw that movie six times. It ruled.

                        Except for the part where the guy from Sons of Anarchy wants to molest the girl from Napoleon Dynamite.

                          Kevin Costner's best performance was in "The Big Chill."

                            Rock on. I ripped it off from an ESPN article.
