  1. We have come to the knockout round of the "Battle of the decade"! (Early 70s) Sadly, we must say goodbye to the lowest vote getter! 1972 had some votes, but it just couldn't hang in against such fierce competition. We still love ya, 1972!! Now the one on one matches commence! First up, we've got a battle between the top vote getter (1971) and the scrappy underdog (1973) 1971 dominated the preliminaries, but could 1973 pull off an upset here?? Which year wins this battle?? Have at it!
  2. Looking back, what years or seasons in sports were the most memorable? Not just for individual teams either...let's talk about the entire league!
  3. Tally updated! A clear leader so far, but maybe fans of the other years can give their faves a boost! Keep the votes coming!
  4. Same concept as my previous thread, with a little re-tooling Five years enter, one will reign supreme! What is the best year for music from the early 1970s? We're talking albums, live shows and live recordings - what year rules the roost?? Nominate THREE years from this timespan by giving the following number of points #1 best year (first best) - 5 points #2 best year (second best) - 3 points #3 best year (third best) - 1 point An example ballot would look like this My #1 vote - 1972 (5 points) My #2 vote - 1974 (3 points) My #3 vote - 1970 (1 point) After enough votes are cast, I'll tally up all the points and pit the top four vote getters against each other. Least number of votes from preliminary five is automatically eliminated The four remaining will be seeded a la the NHL playoffs (1 vs 4, 2 vs 3) head to head. Winners of that head to head round will face each other in the Final Round, with one year being declared the victor! (I will keep a tally of current points at the top of this post, editing as needed)
  5. The Niles vs CC battles were definitely a draw for the series, as I recall. I'll say YES, it holds up but strongly dependent on the above. Without it, I doubt the series would be remembered as much. Next series up for discussion: Coach
  6. I did this one some time ago. It'll be interesting to see if anything has changed
  7. Don't forget to show some love for season collapses too! Here's a compilation from NFL Films https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OILuF8Tvo8
  8. Wow. There's "outside the strike zone" and then there's "in a different area code"
  9. Here's a fun video compilation of blown plays and "What were you thinking?" plays across a variety of sports. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUqzUGHLkoY (blocked for display on websites, gotta go to YouTube to see it) What are some of your all time favorite blown plays or lousy calls in sports? Whether in a single game OR a season-long collapse, what moments in sports make you wanna scream "How could you have possibly lost that??"
  10. A very simple concept! One poster mentions a TV sitcom from the past (no longer producing new episodes) and asks the simple question "Does it still hold up??" Next poster says "yes" or "no" (or somewhere in between) and lists a bunch of reasons for their opinion This same poster then chooses the next sitcom up for discussion For the sake of discussion, we should limit this to sitcoms that, generally speaking, received reviews and ratings in its lifetime from at least average to excellent. Any sitcom stinkers, one episode wonders and the truly bizarre should be kept out of this discussion! What does "does it still hold up?" mean? Consider the following Is it still funny? Do the jokes still land? Is the acting good? Is the writing still good? Are the serious moments still watchable or is it pure cringe? Do the themes still feel relevant to this day and age, or is it purely a product of its time? (or discuss if that's even a bad thing!) The overall thing to consider, of course, is the question "Is it worth taking time today to sit down and watch this sitcom?" Let's talk about it! I'll get the ball rolling First choice: Who's The Boss? (ran from 1984 to 1992 - average reviews, strong ratings overall) Does it still hold up??
  11. as a young De Niro, I'd choose Tom Hiddleston He does a killer impression of DeNiro Up next: William Shatner
  12. Or suffer any bizarre gardening accident
  13. Late 60s beating out early 60s (so far, anyway) - not too surprising Keep the nominations coming folks!
  14. My own ballot 1969 - 5 points (gotta give love to Zeppelin II) 1968 - 4 points 1966 - 3 points 1964 - 2 points 1967 - 1 point
  15. After watching that trailer for the upcoming Elvis movie, I'll have to choose Austin Butler (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin_Butler) Pretty easy to see that guy donning the Saturday Night Fever gear, maybe even doin a bit of Vinny Barbarino :P up next! James Caan
