Football vs. um..Football

By TheGuysPerspective, published on Nov 24, 2009

Every Sunday THE GUYS gear up for a day of bone crunching hits, dazzling moves, clutch plays, irate coaches and crazed fans. Yes, we like our football as much as the rest of this country does. It’s absolutely become America’s pastime, supplanting baseball long ago as the sport we obsess over. Football used to be just for men, but that’s changed. Men and women plan parties around the weekly Sunday lineup.

We know some women who actually like the games (we love that), but even the women that don’t care, seem to enjoy watching their husbands or boyfriends revert back to little boys, screaming... (more)

Tous les ans, le 19 Mai, les Bretons du monde

By J.N.PAQUET, published on Oct 11, 2009

...donc une excellente occasion de revenir sur ce qui a fait de la Bretagne ce qu’elle est aujourd’hui… Car de nos jours, la Bretagne est surtout connue pour ses crêpes, ses galettes, ses paysages de campagne, pour ses maisons anciennes achetées par des Britanniques, voire pour son football (surtout depuis la finale de la Coupe de France de football qui opposa pour la première fois deux équipes bretonnes, Guingamp et Rennes).

Mais saviez-vous que la Bretagne est surtout un ancien Royaume celte et Duché indépendant qui ne fut rattaché à la France qu’en 1532 ? La... (more)

The World According To Garp

By DLFerguson, published on Sep 30, 2009

...son rather than as The Author (ta-da!) T.S. Garp.

Jenny becomes so successful that a sort of feminist cult springs up around her without anybody being sure of how it started. One of Jenny’s followers is Roberta Muldoon (John Lithgow) a transsexual who used to be a pro football player. Roberta’s one of the nicer of Jenny’s followers who ends up being Garp’s best friend as well as a sort of unofficial bodyguard to Jenny.

...seemed to a younger me. But I do know that signing along with thousands of my closest new friends to the songs that I used to sneak a listen to as a teenager, promising me the bigger, better life that I went out and found makes me forget just about everything else, except how to smile.

By Gary Schwind, published on Sep 11, 2009

... All of this being one accomplishment after the other that rates high. Also having a fantastic mother, father, and brother who supported me. I guess that's at the top of the list.

Is there one team you have your eye on?

No, but you know Los Angeles is still open for football. They're looking for a football team here. I don't know if there is a lot of confusion about where it should be placed, or the stadium. I try to keep up... (more)
