    Could this happen? It might, right after Marilyn Monroe shows up at my door with a handful of purple pills.

    Speaking of careers, what's the average length of a shills career? Six-eight months? :cool:

    I always feared a few terrorists each getting a few cartons of flares and causing a catastrophe in California.

    I volunteered many years ago to go to Red Rock Canyon with a crew to help clean up the trails....it’s a mix of brushy, desert type landscape that could easily go up in flames. Dry is the word. The #1 item picked up was discarded cigs. Thousands.

    Australia is a huge country but it is sparsely populated. At times, topography & small population have probably hampered the firefighting efforts. Have to be able to get enough fire fighting equipment & teams to where the fires are in a timely manner. Outside of the big cities along the coast, roads and commercial development are much, much less than in the US. Also not nearly as many big rivers throughout the country. All of hose things can act as fire breaks; they might not completely stop a huge, rapidly moving fire by themselves, but they will often slow down the advance and give the crews a chance to make a stand.

    Hopefully the worst is behind and the remainder of the hot season will be much less challenging from a bush fire perspective.

    Without TDs "insight", I am seriously hampered in my handicapping efforts. However here's my picks.
    Tenn +10
    49ers -7
    Kansas City -81/2
    Seahawks +4
    To all contestants, And anybody else, feel free to use my picks, in any manner you so choose. I am not a "snotty little whinnying bitch", so have at it, "game" my picks. :)

    Don't even get me started on Art Modell. I will *NEVER* wear a Baltimore Defectors, er, Ravens jersey.

    I never mentioned his name. Don't hold grudges, rr. Lamar wasn't born when Art moved the team. Don't blame Baltimore. They got hosed by Robert Irsay in 1984 when they moved to Indy. Steve Bisciotti has owned the team since 2004. He's been effective and respected.

    If I still lived in Chicagoland, I'd proudly wear a "40" or a "51", two of my favorite players ever,
    who both came in the first round in the same year. The best first round draft ever by a team.

    No, you didn't. However, whenever I see the Ravens, I can't help thinking of what might have been. The irreparable damage was inflicted upon loyal Cleveland Browns fans by Art Modell. He could have sold the team to a local buyer instead of relocating to Baltimore.
