But this is exactly what SHOULD happen to reflect the actual cost of sports. The net result would be a strong downward pressure on the whole cost structure, which is WAY overdue. They will likely...

With the tires he had left at the end of that race? Yeah, Alonso's driving was superb. No one can do what he does with a below-standards car, it was amazing that he finished second.

I though the bungie cord apple bob was fine, good example of a myth that was out there to be tested. Didn't have a problem with the tennis volley either.

Too similar to 7? LOL, my parents want some of what you're smoking. They got stuck with 8 on a new laptop and immediately wanted our help to get out of Metro. Permanently.

If you drop out of Metro into Desktop, sure. But my MegaCorp is now rolling out Win7 and has absolutely no plans to go 8. And this is not uncommon.

The good thing about this run is that they've gone back to basic busting and not all that stupid show tie-in stuff.

The Tivo discount codes are much better if you want anything more than a Roamio Basic.

Anyone notice that one of the Tour de France leaders this week was Jack Bauer? Jack can do anything (except win the stage, but he came close)!!

If Ricci was the better driver he would've won that duel, it's pretty obvious that his car is better than the Crapwagon Alonso is driving. Agree that he is a budding star in F1 however, he has a...

Well-deserved IMO considering how nihilistic this show has become. My guess is that it's going to get even worse in the end, because that's how Sutter rolls.
