  2. I just saw Al Michaels doing a SNF ad over the weekend, and I wondered if they were playing it a bit early, or were maybe just banking on everything getting wrapped up this week, and wanted a jump start on the promoting SNF.

  6. I always know what time of the year it is with this group! I think M2F may be the only other one of us that has any interest in the pointy.

  9. in the interest of full disclosure, I do enjoy the rounder football as well - but just can't/don't follow it as much (don't have cable). FWIW, I prefer the pointy version at the college level most, but do enjoy the NFL, too.

  10. There are 2 great football families and thus dynasties in the NFL the Mara family who has owned the New York Football Giants since 1925 and the Rooney family who has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1933.

    The Giants have won 7 NFL titles but w should 4 of those came before the invention of the forward pass, helmets and refrigeration...just kidding Dave but they did come before the modern era of the NFL (that's 1970 for those of you who think football is played in shorts and with a round spotted ball)BUT the Pittsburgh have a little stat of their own and it is this In the NFL's "modern era" (since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970) the Steelers have posted the best record in the league. The franchise has won the most total games, won the most divisional titles, earned the best winning percentage (including every expansion team), earned the most All-Pro nominations, and have accumulated the most Super Bowl wins (six) since the modern game started in 1970...but the Giants are good too.

  13. Sorry I was having a discussion with my 4 year old daughter on the subject of bedtime vs Dora the Explorer...so grammar went a little wayside. So; the Mara family have...and the Rooney family have.... I really need to make sure I edit these posts better.

  14. "Family" is a collective noun that can be either singular or plural depending on the context. If the family members are doing one thing in unison with the other members of their family, owning a pointy football team in this case, then the word "family" is singular and takes the singular verb "has".

    What was this post about again?

  15. Pointy. Actually, has was originally correct.

    I'm just thrilled that there were as many comments on this post. I didn't expect more than one.

  17. my grammar teacher in high school (senior year) used to tell us: "A day without grammar is like a day without sunshine."

    I hated that class. and she was a psycho.
