  1. Both are great, but a slight lean towards peanut butter. Ritz for PB...Townhouse for cheese.
  2. I like all 3, but Mexican is probably number 1.
  3. I was on To Tell The Truth when I was 10. Lynn Swan was the host. Vicki Lawrence, Kitty Carlisle, Monty Hall, and David Niven, Jr. were the panel. It was the "One on One" game at the end, where I told 2 stories, one true, one false. The panel asked me questions, and then a random audience member had to pick which one they thought was true. I won $333.33...would have won $1,000 if the audience member got it wrong. Pretty cool experience, for sure. If I got to choose another one, it would be Price Is Right.
  4. Rick Barry and Elgin Baylor would be my guess.
  5. I'm not sure there is a professional sports team that I dislike more than the Bad Boy Pistons...especially Laimbeer. I get the sense that he genuinely wanted to injure people. Every time I see a doc about them...it reminds me of how unlikable they were...and also, that they were really, really good.
  6. There are definitely several reasons, and as mentioned, population is a big one. Having grown up in Indiana, and now living in NKY for about 13 years, I would agree with those who said it's just a bigger deal up there, for whatever reason. Just 3 years ago, I went to the New Castle Fieldhouse (cap. 9,400) for a first round sectional game between a top 10 4A school, and a 4A school with 2 wins on the season. Both of these schools were about 45 minutes from the sectional site, and I would say there were at least 6-7,000 in attendance. In regards to the large gyms...this originated mainly in the 50's and 60's, when schools would build giant gyms, in hopes that they would have the biggest gym in their sectional, and be selected to host. Some of the enrollment to gym size ratios are absolutely crazy, like schools with 3 or 400 students having a gym of 3-4,000.
  7. We've had Chick-fil-A a couple of times, and a couple pizzas from LaRosa's. Wings from Knuk-n-Futz...first time I have ever had food from there...and it was good stuff. Hopefully we can branch out to some more local places.
  8. I would say that Loyola Marymount's entire run in the 1990 tournament was incredibly impactful from an emotional standpoint. Following the tragic death of Hank Gathers, I have never rooted so much for a team that I had no attachment to, before or since. 30 years later, and I still remember how much I enjoyed watching them play, and the atmosphere that was evident at those games. The 30 for 30 on that team, while a little quirky with the whole Shakespeare theme, is definitely worth a watch, if you're not too familiar with the story.
  9. Weak sauce punishment for this. There's some clips of former GM AJ Hinch being questioned about this. Obviously, he denies it, which is to be expected. But he then comes across as arrogant and condescending, knowing all the while what they were doing. You've got to imagine, there were relievers and young pitchers who got sent back down, after getting rocked in a series in Houston. Baseball is such a weird thing, in that you know people are always bending the rules. But something about this, the orchestration of it, just is really sad.
  10. The Notre Dame is overrated narrative may have been true in the past, but not recently. They've won 33 games in the last 3 years. They started the season around 9 or 10, and that's probably about where they'll finish. They return they're entire offensive line, a 3 year starter at QB, and most of what was a really good front 4 on defense...from an 11 win team. If people want to dislike ND, it's all good, but at least realize they really are a top 10-15 team. If you want overrated, look no further than Texas.
