Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge (Q4 Standings)

Thanks for sharing those videos, SenseiCAY and RJRouge. I too have had a more difficult time listening to country music over the last five years. I still listen, but do not feel the same enjoyment about every song that I did when I was a (younger) kid. Trace Adkins hosts a throwback countdown on Si...

The kicking team is guaranteed a possession; a touchdown on the opening drive of overtime does not end the game. In addition, the kicking team is entitled to as much time used th...

Re: TD 409 - 2018 in Review (Q7-Q8 revealed)

I love obscure sports, and sports where people can drink beers while competing. If “The Ocho” was an actual channel, I would probably watch it nearly every day, like I do with the Olympic Channel. Has anyone seen the ax throwing championships that have been airing off-and-on ESPN2 lately? Dang, I di...

Most of this went through my mind at the time, though with fewer details. "War of the Roses" and "Center for Disease Control" seem to be accepted routinely, as well.
Or simply, “War of Roses,” as it was here.
