A lot of punter drama in this year's Grey Cup

Doug Flutie was so short, but he came back and played in the NFL in his late 30s.

Professional career

Phelan was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round (108th overall pick) in the 1985 NFL Draft. A knee injury prematurely cut short his professional career.[2]
Personal life

A graduate of the Boston College class of 1985, Phelan currently works in Boston for RR Donnelley as Senior Vice President.[3] He is the cousin of professional soccer player Pat Phelan.[4] He currently resides in Walpole, Massachusetts.

I saw a few minutes last night of the Grey Cup. I get the ESPN app from my bros. password. I then watch the MLS semi-finals.

(I'm one of those people w/o a TV)

The Calgary Stampede Rodeo is akin to the Super Bowl in terms of being a big deal to Albertans. Over a million people go, and if you happen to be north of the border or can get the CBC they do tons of coverage.

The MLS final is next Sunday afternoon. New England Revolution vs. Los Angeles Galaxy. I don't know which team is favored.

I can't believe what I'm seeing. The Giants just fall apart in the 4th quarter
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:17pm northguineahills:

Wooo! My team, the Jags, actually won!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/1/14 6:17pm dale:

in buffalo when flutie was qb you could buy 'flutie flakes' in the local supermarkets. for real.

I blame sports gambling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:18pm northguineahills:

They had Flutie Flakes down in FL back then.
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:18pm Danne D:

congrats ngh :) You are officially the 2nd Jaguars fan I know :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:19pm northguineahills:

Coughlin used to be the Jags original coach.

Eli manning has been her 10 years and he still can't get out of the F'ing pocket
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/1/14 6:19pm Lizardner Dave:

Danne D - are you affiliated with the PCC? I was a member there for several years. Gave it up because of a combination of work and knee and back problems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:20pm Carmichael:

Raiders, Bucs, Jaguars, Jets, Giants. Boy, the anti-cream of the crop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:20pm northguineahills:

I rarely get to see Jags games around here, and they've been so horrible, that when I get a chance to watch them last night, I elected to watch soccer, and surprise, they won!.
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:20pm Danne D:

@Lizardner Dave - I wish :( Went to an open house once. The curling calendar does not work well with my work calendar.

@ngh I just go to a sports bar to see my Bengals :)

After yesterday I am the angriest die hard Giants fan on the planet. Can't win against a 1-10 team? Are you serious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:24pm Carmichael:

Speaking of oddities, the San Francisco Giants have a centerfield foul pole in their stadium. Figure that one out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:25pm davex:

Hey, as crazy as the special rules of Canadian football may sound to you, the whole American football thing can seem absolutely bonkers to other people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/1/14 6:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Die Hard Giants Fan - Well, you've still got the Knicks. Hmm, no, that won't help, either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:26pm davex:

Brodeur might be signing with the Blues tomorrow.
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:26pm Die Hard Giants Fan:

The blame goes to Perry Fewell and Ben Mackadoo
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:27pm colin:

Rangers probably got the mumps from the flyers
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:27pm Die Hard Giants Fan:

I don't watch the Knicks! I'm sick of seeing celebrity row and that bubble headed bleach blond Jill Martin ask stupid questions
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:28pm Die Hard Giants Fan:

I can't believe the islanders my self? The have a better record than the Rangers
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:29pm Danne D:

@carmichael - I think you mean Houston - they have the hill with the flag pole in the middle of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:32pm Carmichael:

@Danne, nope, San Fran has the big yellow stripe going right down the jagged edge of centerfield. Probably due to the lame configuration of the fence & stands.
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:32pm Danne D:

Yes, his name is Phil Hughes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:33pm northguineahills:

He was hit in the anterior spinal artery, near the where the jaw meets the neck.

Hey Bronwyn and Jim, have this guy explain the "zero yards" penalty -which actually costs a team 5 yards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/1/14 6:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Some St. Louis Rams players yesterday stirred controversy by walking around with their hands up. The NFL doesn't plan to punish them.
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:38pm Die Hard Giants Fan:

You ain't kidding so many commercial breaks
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:39pm Danne D:

Sorry I meant "no yards" my bad.
en.wikipedia.org...

Ridiculously "no yards" applied to a blocked punt in the Grey Cup.
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:39pm Danne D:

Relegate the Raiders to the CFL!!!
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:40pm Danne D:

You could call 'em the Rough Raiders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:40pm Carmichael:

That would work Jim, but they would have to play 3 1/2 downs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/1/14 6:42pm northguineahills:

Wait, did Kurt eat and regurgitate my comment about Nunavut? That was literally my comment.

this song rules
Avatar    Mon. 12/1/14 6:42pm Danne D:

single
A one-point score. The kicking team scores a single when the ball is punted, drop kicked, or place kicked into the receiving team's end zone (without scoring a field goal or hitting the goal post) and the receiving team fails to run or kick the ball back into the field of play. The single also is scored if the kick goes out of bounds in the end zone, except on a kickoff. On a kickoff, the single is scored only if the ball stays inbounds and is not run out of the zone, or if the defence puts the ball out of bounds in the end zone.

I'm more enlightened about the CFL, and Canadian rules seem more fun then NFL rules.

If they had started the season with Michael Vick maybe they'd of been 5-7

I mean the CFL has a 3 minute warning. Always something with those Canadians :)
  Mon. 12/1/14 6:44pm Die Hard Giants Fan:

What kind of stupidity if sign Michael Vick to keep him on the bench

East St. Louis is a ghetto, no way around saying that.
