  1. Tournament Abundance

    This is true, my kids need a father anyways. But seriously you and Lou are welcome to stay here anytime.
  2. HSTL S41 Draft

    Sadly no, at least not in the foreseeable future. Haven't played a game since Madison 16. I can't host anymore and unfortunately I've lost that love and feeling. I'll try to check the boards more often, sorry I've been a bit of a tecmo hermit. If we can ever play TSB on console, I'll be back. Hoping the Nintendo switch stuff can make that happen sooner rather than later. Can you imagine a world with lobbies of hundreds or a few thousand people looking for tecmo games at any one time online? Leagues, stats, ranked matches, no stupid discord or AIM, your phone buzzing 16 times/day at work cuz Gats wants to play. #IWantToBelieve
  3. Who's the 1st NFLer you became cognizant of?

    He was mine too! Partly due to winning my family's football pool in 86 as a kid. I had the poster of him that you could order out of sports illustrated with the white border which i'm pissed i can't find an image of online anywhere.
  4. Congrats Toolie!!! Sounds like a good time. Did you run the reverse at all?
  5. I'll vouch for Arn's pool story. Luke & I were leaving for breakfast that morning and were wondering who the drunk creep was bothering those poor kids in the pool. Little did we know that he was about to become a legend. He must have pulled an all-nighter Friday and just kept it rolling into Saturday. It's 50/50 that he's even alive at this point.
  6. Star Wars: Rogue One TRAILER!!

    I was expecting it to suck honestly and I was pleasantly surprised. It felt a lot less "disney" than Force Awakens, which was great. They did a good job of setting up Episode 4 but also telling a pretty cool story in a little over 2 hours. Maybe I'm getting soft because I'm old and have a little girl now, but I liked the Jin character. SPOILERS: I'm not sure how they could have gotten away with any less CGI than they used. Tarkin basically had to be there and the actor who played him is dead, how else do you do it? I thought it was cool how he stole control over the DS. The Leia stuff at the end didn't bug me either. The addition of the red and gold leaders was nice. One thing that really bothered me was no Wedge, but apparently he doesn't want anything to do with SW anymore. They offered him a role in the Force Awakens and he passed, which sucks as he's one of my favorite characters. I had a hard time understanding Forrest Whitaker's character, but thought he was cool. I see he will be in the next season of rebels which should hopefully give a little more background on him. Everything Vader was cool, especially the castle. I might actually see it again while it's out.
  7. Season 37 HSTL Fantasy Football

    Who won this mother?
  8. Playstation Vue

    Ok, so I've had Vue for over a month now and I'll give my quick review. I run two PS3s and 1 PS4. Pros: - It's Cheap!!! I do the 2nd tier package and it's $35/month with NO CONTRACT like CC said above. - They just added NFL Network (no added charge) and you can get the Red Zone channel for $40 for the whole year, which isn't bad. - All ESPNs, FS1, BTN, SEC network are all there. (CFB starts tonight so this weekend may be the ultimate test) - Not really VUE, but PSN has spotify for music. We liked to listen to the directv music stations a lot but luckily this free app fulfills that need. - Has a ton of kids stations and bravo-type crap for your wives/gfs/bfs to watch too. - I called the support folks for my 1st con listed below and the tech guy was terrific, aka spoke english and appeared to give a crap. Cons: - You can't use more than one PS3 or more than one PS4 at the same time, which I didn't really know. Using one PS3 & one PS4 at the same time is fine. - It does buffer a little on my PS3 that's upstairs in the bedroom where my wifi signal isn't great. The PS4 works better overall, but that was to be expected I think. - There's no app for PC or on kindle yet. This is a little bit of a bummer but not a huge deal for me, it does work really well on my iphone surprisingly. I like to watch golf on my laptop sometimes but that's almost always streaming on the CBS or NBC site for free anyways. - The menus are kind of laggy/clunky and it's not super easy to find shows. I'm probably just a n00b but i'm used to directv which had a good guide. #FirstWorldProblems - No MLB network, which is the only channel I miss. But you can get the MLB package and I just got an email that it's only $9.99 for the rest of the season so I will proabably try that out, but haven't yet. - The commercials you see on the kids stations can be pretty inappropriate. For example, kids were watching Jake & the Neverland Pirates the other day and the commercial that comes on is for the Nikki Glaser show on Comedy Central and she's talking about fingering. So that's not cool, i was going to maybe email their support and let them know. - There's no CBS on demand, but there's ABC, NBC, FOX. But of course the soap my wife wants to watch is on CBS. - You can't get a paper bill, it just auto bills your credit/debit card on file. Not a huge deal for me, but it might be for others. Overall, I'm happy with it and the $100 savings/month is really nice. I was really worried about lag/buffering but it's not an issue on my two systems that are hard wired and my internet speed isn't anything special. It only buffers a little bit on my 3rd system occasionally but it's not bad at all. Seems like I have a lot more cons listed, but none of them are a big deal and if you are thinking about cord cutting and have a playstation(s) I think you should give it a try. You get a free week to try it out too, which is nice.
  9. HSTL 37 -- Week 1 -- Bills at Broncos

    Me seeing Sharpe's stats in the boxscore: *For Fantasy Purposes Only
  10. Playstation Vue

    That's why I'm betting it's a seperate subscription like showtime or hbo...at least the red zone part of it.
  11. Playstation Vue

    Just saw that Vue is adding NFL Network and NFL Redzone too. Pretty vague on details, but I'm guessing it will be a stand alone deal and not part of a current package. (hope I'm wrong) http://blog.us.playstation.com/2016/07/25/nfl-network-and-nfl-redzone-coming-soon-to-playstation-vue/
  12. Playstation Vue

    Nice, I was about to ask what brand of HD antenna you got. That's next on my list.
  13. Playstation Vue

    I finally switched over and so far I'm pretty happy with it. The PS3 seems to be a bit slower on startup, but once it gets going the HD is pretty darn good. PS4 picture looks just like the satellite did. The app lets you shoot it to your phone or tablet which is crucial for those of us with little kids. I'd recommend trying the free trial for those on the fence for sure.

  15. Season 36 HSTL Fantasy Football

    Thanks for doing this, it's always fun to do something Tecmo related even though I'm a loser and don't play anymore.
  16. I hope you guys have a blast. I'm out unless my wife & kids leave me beforehand, then I'm in for sure.
  17. PS4 Players in the house?

    Karl_Hungus_33 Yeah, they somehow made Star Wars not fun even though the sound/graphics are amazing. I played for a couple months pretty hard and then completely lost interest. Real bummer. I'm addicted to Rocket League now, can't recommend it enough and I'm still fairly terrible at it. My brother got me hooked, he kept trying to get me to play for months but I thought "soccer with rocket cars sounds really dumb". I was wrong, it's amazing. Like Tecmo, it's very easy to play but incredibly hard to master. Looking forward to Battefield 1, hopefully it's as fun as it looks so far.
  18. Thanks for these, but would you mind putting who the team owners are for us fair weather fans?
  19. Weird pass2 play for TD

    I've never seen that. Maybe QB Eagles scrambling and tossing a guy, but that's different. Crazy!
  20. Rocket League

    I've finally started playing this recently and I'm hooked. My PSN is Karl_Hungus_33 is anybody wants to party up. Like Tecmo, it's easy to play but really hard to master. I saw this on ESPN today, some pretty cool goals. Those aerials are so hard, but these guys make it look easy. http://espn.go.com/esports/story/_/id/16006173/the-rocket-league-european-championship-group-stage-highlights
  21. Cleveland Resigning...

    I'll just be the weird 3rd wheel.
  22. Axl Rose w/ ACDC

    Oh my wife doesn't care if I go, she just doesn't want me taking our child.
  23. Axl Rose w/ ACDC

    Yeah, I was skeptical of this as well. Being as flaky as Axl is especially. And I'm a big fan of both GNR and AC/DC. Maybe just goes to show that Angus has always been the most important piece. I've only got to see them live once, but it's well worth the ticket price just to watch Angus play/move like that at such an advanced age. #rockgod I like Brian and thought he was about as good as they could have done after Bon died. It's still weird for me even now to hear him sing the old stuff (pre back in black). Hopefully they can help him with his hearing issues, would be a shame if they had to quit or get another full-time singer. My 4 year-old daughter loves GNR (we call them Axl songs) but my wife already shot down my idea of going to see them in concert. I really want to go, but would feel like a turd if I didn't take her along.
