Where's my lime and other twists

Posted by vapor5 on June 24, 2015 at 2:00 PM

I was reading a story on a local kid who's headed to Villanove to play football and was curious if Nova had moved to 1A and found this  info which was new to me.  Bacardi Bowl

"Auburn (7-2-1). Villanova (7-2). Tropical Stadium. Havana, Cuba. New Year’s Day, 1937, the second to last day of the week-long first “Cuban National Sports Festival.” They called it the Bacardi Bowl. Or the Rhumba Bowl. Or the Cigar Bowl. (The New York Times called it a the “battle of the palms.”;)

USA woman's team faces China next w/o Megan Rapinoe and Lauren Holliday who will both be suspended for the match after they each received their second yellow cards

Peyton to the Texans ? anyone else read/hear that rumor?

scurds- Maybe Andre J would've stayed if he knew PM would be the QB?

Battle of the palms? Was Rosie the queen?

Only thing I heard/saw on the Payton/Texans rumor was the denial by the Broncs. Put me down as a naysayer.

peyton is in exactly the right division. afc south would be 2nd. wonder what he could do for the bengals or eagles

Word is Broncos want to get rid of him and tried to send him to Houston. Must be true because they're denying it. Must also mean Houston didn't want him. Now whoooooooo does?

Buffalo, perhaps? Nah. With Cassel, EJ and Tyrod, how could he ever crack the lineup? Could it be.... the Jets? What with Fitzie, Heaps, Geno and Petty? Who needs Manning?

Bring him on! Be fun to watch the Pats win anyway. Then again, Peyton isn't known for taking risks with his chances for a division title.

So who won the Banana Bowl?

rad- game ended in a 7-7 tie- click Bacardi Bowl link in opening sentence for more details. Also, I suspect the Broncs know Peyton's arm is weak.

galf- Knew you'd introduce Rosie to the chat :wink:

Yeah Vap, I'm very predictable!

Wait a minute. So this Manning thing has legs? I don't get it. Wasn't there some kind of option on bringing him back this year or was the ball entirely in his court on that?

What do the Broncs do without him? Do they even have a legitimate back-up?

If I'm Houston and I've got to give up young talent for a guy who has MAYBE one more season left in his career, I'm not doing it either.

re manning: no place for him in the nfc north.
no place for him in the nfc south
the nfc e has a maybe because of philly. tebow bradford and sanchez could make room for him, but its not a team on the cusp of a breakthru .

the nfc south isnt hiring, the nfc west seems pretty set except for zona. but its too physical a division for him.
a trip thru the afc and its denver r houston with rosters capable of breaking thu and qb openings. i dont see him making a move
