    Hi, Boone,

    Noted your message back in 2010 and that you were a Marine and in Oki. My wife and I returned to Okinawa last November. I studied Japanese for a year at the Army Language School (now DLI) in 1962-3 and was lucky enough to get orders to Japan. Five years in Wilmington, NC until return here last year. Was great either going to the games or seeing them on TV. Back to hit and miss. Wishing you well. Cheers, Chuck Church

    Hey Boone, since I don't have access to the Videos I didn't know of you had this one included but I just saw it for the first time today. Don't know how I missed it but it's pretty amazing. It's about Sonny & Sam, called "Brothers of the Legacy". Perhaps I'm the only one who HASN'T seen it but I did a search and didn't see it listed in any of the forums. Here's the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqjTt...re=context-gfa

    Hey Boone got a question for ya...

    "Beyond issuing you guys a warm , wanted to let you know that we've already got a couple of special Baylor-themed avatars available, and are open to creating more (or adopting your own if there's something you like)."

    Does this mean we can use our own avatars now? I've had one uploaded to my gallery for a while now I'd love to use if that's the case.

    Thanks and keep up the good work, this place kicks ass.

Oral Arguments

by Boone on 09-03-15 at 09:39 AM
Last night, as the latest Redskins-related organizational firestorm raged on the Twittersphere, some stark contrasts between the modern media world, and the calmer, more dignified world of my youth were on my mind.

Don’t get me wrong. Upon hearing the latest on the burgeoning scandal quickly christened ‘BJgate’, I made my share of snarky, inappropriate comments. I am an American male after all. If you lob me a pitch, I’m going to swing. So yeah, the current Redskins embarrassment

Living in Missouri

by Boone on 06-11-15 at 02:45 PM
Show me.

Historians attribute Missouri’s ‘Show Me’ moniker to U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903. While a member of the U.S. House Committee on Naval Affairs, Vandiver attended an 1899 naval banquet in Philadelphia. In a speech there, he declared, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri.

The Opposite

by Boone on 12-08-14 at 11:03 AM
"Why did it all turn out like this for me? I had so much promise. I was personable. I was bright. Oh, maybe not academically speaking, but I was perceptive. I always know when someone's uncomfortable at a party. It all became very clear to me sitting out there today, that every decision I've ever made in my entire life has been wrong. My life is the complete opposite of everything I want it to be. Every instinct I have in every aspect of life, be it something to wear, something to eat... It's often

7 Crucial Waypoints on the Journey to a Redskins Resurgence

by Boone on 10-23-14 at 04:01 PM
Forget ‘7 Minute Abs’, I mean, I’d recommend you go with the 6 minute version anyway. I believe there are 7 crucial actions the Washington Redskins must take if they are to revisit their former days of glory and return to a winning tradition.


Let Griffin be Griffin. We’ve heard it before and we get it. RG3 is reckless. He plays with wild abandon. He can’t slide. He won’t slide. RG-Knee. The ‘Pistol’, ‘Read Option’, running threat QB offense is dead. Griffin can only survive

Merthiolate

by Boone on 09-26-14 at 10:17 AM
Any child of the 60’s or 70’s knows what I’m talking about. God help you if you skinned your knee, cut your finger, or suffered some other childhood trauma resulting in an open wound. Back then, a minor injury of that sort meant only one thing – Merthiolate. The bright orange hot poker-colored antiseptic liquid was the weapon of choice against infection. And it was a perfect symbol in that era of what we all were taught. If it hurts it must be good for you. Applied directly to a wound, Merthiolate
