  1. I don't recall such a thing and I live in a state with a pan handle!
  2. I had another son. I have 3 kids now. - My summer vacation story
  3. I had to pull the Lindsey Pelas thread because Google told me they wouldn't pay me anymore if I had that sort of content. No offense, but Knobbe getting paid >>>>>> Rob making sure everyone knows he's hetero AF
  4. You have this backwards. The obvious lack of condemnation from a guy who seemingly spends hours a day condemning people is being covered. The Daily Stormer noticed it. They seem like a pretty credible source for white supremacy, no?
  5. Your recollection of Robert E Lee is a mythos. He was on the losing side of a losing cause; keeping slave labor. If you value his opinion in the matter, he would also be in favor of taking down his statue.
  6. Signup: http://tecmobowl.org/lincoln What: Tecmobowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament Where: Lincoln, Nebraska @ Barry's Bar and Grill - http://barrysbarandgrill.com/ - Located in Downtown Lincoln in the Haymarket - 235 N. 9th St Lincoln, NE When: Saturday, Feb 4th, 2017 - Tournament Check-in between 11-11:45am, game play to start at 11:45 am How much does it cost? - $20. Pay at the event. There is an ATM if you're the guy who never has cash. Tournament Limit - Tourney will be capped at 64 players Is there a payout? - Payout will be for the top 4 finishers based on the number of people that show up at the event. I'm working on a belt/trophy for this year. Will there be food? - Yes they have a great menu. Format 4 person groups will play world cup style to determine seeding into a single elimination tournament. The semi final losers will play for 3rd/4th place. The amount of people to advance to the tournament and/or available systems will determine Rules Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first. “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. WR or TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. Ties: Although ties are permitted in the tournament’s “group play” portion, such are not permitted in the single-elimination portion of the tournament. If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner. Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: Matt Knobbe is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Travis Reinsch will resolve the dispute. Current registration list 1. Matt K - Lincoln 2. Chris W - Omaha, NE 3. Daniel S - Auburn, NE 4.

  7. View File TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017. This site's 10th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players. Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

  8. Every once in a while I poke outside of TecmoBowl.org and am inspired by other online communities. In the past, you either just sort of made a first post somewhere random, or a "Hi there" post wherever you felt to. Thus, if you're new here, or even if you've been here since day one, feel free to say "Hi " in this thread. If you're new to TecmoBowl.org, you might do yourself a favo by looking over our New Members Thread for valuable information and descriptions about what this forum has to offer. And while you're at it, why not add yourself to the TSB Players Map? We'd like the Players Map to eventually help Tecmo Super Bowl fans be able to see who is in their area for starting up a tournament, or just finding a new bud to play a game.
  9. I've been watching Star Trek Deep Space Nine lately. Can just stream them at points while I'm working from Amazon Prime
  10. I think i'm imagining World Cup soccer as well when I make this statement. I can't think of any hockey event that I'd prefer to watch. I'll watch the shit out of the USA play in the World Cup and pretend I know what's going on. If my only two choices were some random soccer game or random hockey game I probably would turn off the TV.
  11. It's not like I've never watched hockey before. In fact, I've attended an NHL in person. I've never actually been to either a NFL or NBA game in person. We have a high school level team here in Lincoln. Those are fun to go to on the occasion I score tickets for them. I just don't really care about hockey at all. To be honest, I'd probably rather watch soccer on TV and I don't care about soccer either.
  12. Was a great read. Would recommend if you ever used this console. This was THE THING back in the day and shifting to nestopia in online tecmo was a hard sell for years given how good this emulator was.
  13. Pretty stoked about this. Would love to not store 8 crt tvs in my basement
  14. Reality TV? If anyone's spending their time watching that they need to get out more. I'm really into Fargo though....with all the snow and ice that's sort of like the NHL playoffs. Otherwise, I never grew up playing nor watching hockey. It gets cold here but there aren't enough ponds here and it doesn't stay cold enough for ice to form. I just really will never care about it though our back and forth is fun.
  15. They're a company that makes the majority of their money on subscriptions (around 2/3rds). They are bleeding money because people are cord cutting and people not interested in sports are no longer obligated to pay for ESPN when they do pay for online subscriptions. Why would I wait around to watch a highlight on a show if I can just pull it up on the internet?
  16. Looks like the Jags were on the same page with me. Considering they're the Jags, I'm not sure I should feel smart.
  17. I wasn't aware the NHL was still in business. Bully on them!
  18. The MVP of the entire tournament might have been @arncoem and his universal remote. Switching TVs from Coax to AV so we could use more Retrons = Legendary.
  19. Here's a writeup from Jimmie. I had spent time with him early and had no idea he was sick. Great guy. http://thebig1070.iheart.com/onair/jimmie-kaska-36883/retro-esports-a-day-at-the-15725875/
  20. As a note, if one of your upcoming wedding photos isn't successfully recreating your avatar, you're doing it wrong.
  21. No reason you can't do this now...makes you seem like an elite daylight drinker. Glad we got to continue our annual running into each other after being fingered by the Madison Airport security tradition alive!
  22. I don't necessarily know a lot of the new guys so I'm having a hard time putting together nicknames/names I try to put a face to a name when I can. Thus, if you're going to be in attendance, drop a line here. Please say hi, especially later in the day when I have been eliminated Also, I'm going to forget people's name just because I don't see them enough. I'll try and fight through my natural tendency to be embarrassed by this. Matt (Knobbe) (I am on the left. On the right is Josh (Coconuts) )
  23. I didn't know Odell owned Husker gear!
  24. I have a Coconuts Instagram filter
  25. In Wisconsin this is known as Bontempo-ing
