I remember MAD or Cracked Magazines used to have that back cover where you'd fold the middle in and a picture of Johnny Carson would end up looking like a donkey or something.My older brother had a subscription of Thrasher, because it was part of a prize in a Skateboarding competition he won back in the 80's that never ended, we kept on getting the magazines until the late 90's

yup the way to see what a real NFL contract is worth is to find what the actual guaranteed money is (which includes signing bonuses in the millions). It used to be a way for teams to circumvent the salary cap too.thats why even owners of English Premier League teams clamor at the chance to get in on an owner's stake for an NFL team. Along with a practically perfect socialist wealth sharing system amongst billionaires... the labor and their union are basically bitches...

yup. NFL players are basically cattle. if they're not performing they just cut a player and the contract's dead. there are some provisions like if a player is officially injured he can't be cut/contract terminated.if a player is really good or valued, you'll see teams front load guaranteed money through signing bonuses.there's stories of veterans warning other veterans during the training camps that cuts are coming so they can find ways to be "officially injured" so...

the clippers are funny...did you guys hear the simmons zach lowe podcast? even zach lowe ends up saying that behind the scenes the majority of executives, players, and GMs are "sick of their [the clippers ] shit" - in reference to the team's entitlement, pouting towards refs, and arrogance for not having actually achieved anything. Things like Chris Paul always trying to get half court shots off before a half while violently flopping and then immediately whining/jawing...

I don't get why people subscribe to time magazine. My wife had some extra airline miles a couple years back and I stupidly used some of them to get a two year subscription and I tried reading them but a lot of the time the stories are just fodder and now its almost like I get one in the mail and its straight into the recycling bin. every two weeks they keep on coming in the mail and it ends up taking so much space. you can just read any of their better/worthwhile...

Its the first time I've ever had heartburn... but it was sort of worth it... thats what happens when its 1am and you look out your hotel window in Charleston SC and think to yourself "whats a cookout? its still open? I wonder if its any good"

the bulls and hawks showed the different ways you can theoretically beat the warriors even if they score 110+ points... the bulls just hung on for dear life against the Warriors offensive onslaught and home crowd... and waited until the middle of the 4th Q... and then switched up defenses forcing the warriors to try to score inside... the hawks just fought the warriors toe to toe with similar assed offensive and defensive sets.... until one team was left...

I've been very active this winter. I still run, take the dogs out to the park, and even play disc golf regularly in the sub zero temperature + snow.I was out at the park and saw this cute little guy: [[SPOILER]]
