Finally the Colts beat the Pats! Actually, they didn't just beat them, they pretty much dominated the entire game. The Pats made it a little interesting half way through the 4th, but the Colts had the answer for everything the Pats threw at them. When are the Colts going to lose? Most people say it's going to be the Jaguars game, but who knows, do they have what it takes to go undefeated and win the Super Bowl, ala the Miami Dolphins? Nah, they'll make the Super Bowl and lose to the Dallas Cowboys, w00t! LOL.

There were a few NBA games on last night, but the former Detroit Piston Mehmet Okur really caught my eye. He lit it up for 31 as the Jazz actually seem like they have a decent team again. Are the Raptors going to win a game this year? The Heat won their first game without Shaq. I'm looking forward to the Pistons/Kings game tonight. Hopefully the Stones can keep it rolling and start the season at 4-0!

Well, my stepson, Dan is off from school today, so what a great time for him to rake leaves! Having a day off from school isn't that bad, huh? LOL. He's a good kid, he knows he'll be rewarded soon enough. Nat went to the docs yesterday and has an ear infection, she has some meds to take for the next 10 days. Did I mention I can't stand it when she's sick? She wants to play, but just doesn't have the energy to do it for long. She slept a TON yesterday, hopefully she'll be better very soon.

Enough about me, what's up with you? Are the Forums slow for you guys? There must be something going on with the server, I'll put in a ticket.

Not much going on here...

Im about to head off for work. I cant believe that the Xbox 360 will be here in two weeks, it really did sneak up on me. Still not sure what I want to do about my xbox. I was going to sell it on Ebay, but it seems like a lot of trouble to me and I might just trade it in although I wont get as much.

What's up?! I'm quite excited to be able to plug my MP3 player into my 360 and stream my music. That's just too cool. I already have the USB cable run to where my 360 is going to sit, very excited!

I played more of King Kong for the 360 last night and feel it's a must own. Just so beautiful of a game, and it's actually fun to play IMO. We'll see.

Reviews for the first 360 games should be coming out soon. Kameo arrives in stores today. My local EB's and Gamestop's told me they can't sell them until the 22nd, which is dumb to me, but oh well. Not like I can play the games anyway.

I'm actually considering not getting NBA2K6 for the 360 now that Finn's roster editor for the Xbox has been released. Decisions, decisons...

Cavs won their 2nd game, in impressive fashion last night. I still think we'll win 50 pretty easily, and finish 2nd in the division behind Detroit.

Gonna leave for school in a bit but I want to talk about playing tennis last night.

Before last night, I hadn't played tennis for about 6 months..so for the first 15 minutes I sucked but after that I got used to it and I actually played pretty well when I got the hang of it. The only problem is now I'm really tired from it and my arm feels like it is going to fall off. :y4:

I've never sold anything on Ebay either, I hear it's fairly easy tho, but I understand the concern. I've bought a ton of stuff off Ebay, but I probably won't ever sell anything. I'm keeping my Xbox, at least until I hear what games are going to work on the 360.

Yeah, that is very cool. I'm going to have to add a few MP3's to the collection.

A must own from EG? Shocker!

Oh no, I already know you are getting NBA 2K6 for the 360, so don't play! Decisions, blah! LOL, you and I both know you'll have NBA 2K6 for the 360, so shut it!

I think Indiana will give them a run for their money, who knows, it's been a great start to the season tho.

LOL, so does this mean you are going to try out for the team and deal w/ the coach you know you love?
 
# 8 RCTfansMal818 @ 11/08/05 09:22 AM
What's up?! I didn't watch the MNF. Colts won, huh? For your prediction, how many lose will get for the Colts?

LOL!

Yeah, I have 2K6 prepaid...but, yeah, who am I kidding. I'll get it for the 360.

Indiana has a great team. I think we can beat them out, but I feel it's going to be like this, Detroit wins the division by about 5 games, we are ahead of Indiana by 1 or 2 games. In reality, I think any of the 3 could win the division, but Detroit is very solid.

Not sure what your question is...typo maybe? If you're asking me how many losses I think the Colts will have, I think they'll lose twice. To who? I have no idea. It's too difficult to go undefeated for the entire season in the NFL or any sport, for that matter.

LOL, of course.

Yup, any of those 3 can win the division, injuries will play a big role in all of it. If the teams can stay healthy, it should be a good race!

Ha - Steve.. putting the kid out to rake leaves on a "non-school" day.. sounds like me when i lived at home.... hehe.. Just gonna head out in a little bit to trade in more old games to put down $$ on Operation Flashpoint, Gun, & pick up either Call of Duty 2 or Brothers in Arms 2( dont know which one is better though).. nice win by the Colts - but i am glad Brady had a nice game (have him as my starter in a head to head FF league & he helped me win the game)...

LOL. Hey, it's what I had to do growing up as well. He'll be a father someday and understand it all. You must love those war shooter games bro. I think I'll get CoD 2 on the 360 for sure, game played awesome at Walmart. Congrats on the win I won this week too!

Nyquil...I've never met anyone that likes the taste of it. The cherry flavored stuff definitely tastes better than the green tho.

What up fellas?

Slow day at work for a change so I'm continuing my never ending battle with learning HTML.

I lost a HEARTBREAKER in fantasy this weekend, 88-86. Me and my friend were both 7-1, the best teams in our league. I had Deion Branch last night and I needed 13 points for the win. He caught the early TD and I thought I was golden but I just couldn't pull through.

Lil frustrating that I could have had College Hoops 2k6 in my hands today, but I don't think I'd have much time to play this week anyway. Also, I have a date on Thursday night.

I haven't gone on a real date with a girl I don't really know since HS. This girl is my cousin's friend that I met at a Halloween party. Should be an interesting time, she seems cool and definately is cute, plus she's off to a great start in her professional career (bought a condo, a new car, etc) so that's definately a bonus.

Besides that, it's Tuesday so tonight is the big night for pickup games at the rec center so I'm pumped for that. I also took Friday off for the hell of it, I need a three day weekend.

I self taught myself HTML over a year or 2 span a few years ago. Just went to all the HTML sites and learned it. Now I know it like the back of my hand.

This is a good site to get some tips and tricks.

Nice! I'll definately check it out. I'm teaching myself too. I searched Amazon.com for the text with the best review and picked up SAMS Teach Yourself HTML and XHTML. What a great text. I love how it shows you all the coding in one figure, then the result (how it appears on the web) right next to it. I'm in Chapter 9 right now and I'm loving it.

And I definately check the coding on other sites too like you said, that's a great way to learn.

Hands down, the Jaguars WILL NOT beat the Colts.

ehh, I used htmlgoodies too, but I liked it's old design, so much more friendly, now it's really corporate feeling.

I don't have school because of a teacher workday, I think. I think The Movies is supposed to come out today, but I'm not sure. I called EB (where I preordered it) and they told me, enquote:

"Uh, we don't have a release date in the computers, but, uh, we should, uh, get it soon."

"Thanks so much (sarcasm)."

"Hey, no problem man! Have a good night."

"You too." *hang up*

Anyone else know about the release date of The Movies?

In other news, I lost my fantasy game by 2 after being up by 6. DAMN YOU EDGE! Vinatieri has sucked for me all season.

Final score: 40-38.

I have no idea what's going on in my fantasy league.

BTW, Steve, good looking out on that iPod/Xbox 360 thing. I'm hookin mine up!
