    I guess the only darker time in the last hundred years or so was 9/11.
    I suppose nothing compares to that. But the JFK assassination effected everyone.
    Hard to imagine that they played football that weekend in the NFL.

    question:

    Why was there a need to watch a random "parade" of the president driving though dallas on tv?

    Idk JP..... All I know is that he was very popular My mother had pictures of him hanging up I remember her crying, kids were crying at school that day.... I was old enough to remember how it affected the people around me... Jack Ruby shooting Oswell, the funeral all that stuff was highly televised as it would be today....Hell I was 11 years old but I can still see myself sitting in that cafeteria.....I guess up to that point I didn't know such things happened in the world/life..... Whenever they do a story on JFK it take me right back ...Like most of us know exactly what we were doing the day of 9/11....Idk

    On Sunday, we went to a bat day doubleheader at Yankee Stadium and sat behind a pole that said "Sec 51".
    Stan Bahnsen won game one (I think 7-2) and Bill Barber (at least I remember his last name was Barber) won game 2,...3-2.
    I got a Tom Tresh 29" bat and both my brothers got Steve Whittaker bats.
    We weren't sure they would play because it was the official day of mourning in NY. (Bobby Kennedy was actually a Senator from NY)

    How's that for memory.

    Pretty impressive. Meanwhile I can't remember what I had for breakfast.

    It's weird that although they were both killed in the same year I have a vivid memory of one (MLK) and almost no recollection of the other (Bobby Kennedy).

    Trying not to sound whiny with this....but, losing to a FG as the clock runs down is pretty much the most boring way to lose a game I can think of.

    So depressing...

    we do stink. the only bright side in this season is that some of our young players are going to be good. our secondary was doing well until McBride got hurt.....then Dallas was eyeing Rolle the rest of that quarter. Knew it was downhill after that.

    Idk...I guess we can discuss the good parts for next season

    Ok, hypothetical question:

    Let's say we dont have Nicks next season.....

    Do we try to GET another WR? Do we draft one? Sign one?

    I'm not overly confident with our options right now. Though I'm glad Myers decided to finally start playing with the team -___-
