Dominos sounds like it'd be fun to watch.

I remember the Scrabble. I watched for about 15-20 minutes just for the oddness of it.

I even remember the announcers, if you can call them that, mentioning something about alot of the best players didn't even speak, read or understand English, they just sat down and basically memorized the dictionary and studied the different ways to conjugate verbs.

i'm such a nerd i knew what card you were talking about.

i used to play in high school and so did my older brother and his freinds. well, one of his friends was a substitute teacher and got my class one day. he asked if i had my cards but they were at home, so he wrote me a note saying i forgot my book and that i needed it for an assignment and let me go home to get them and played the last 1/2 hour of class

Ha, I saw that on ESPN Classic with those comedians that sit down and watch old footage as they make fun of it.

Don't get me wrong, it's a sport. But not that exciting to watch on TV. And honestly, who even knew there was a professional paintball league???




Personally I watched the paintball championship as much as I could. I did not really learn anything though, except for those guys guns were much stronger then the ones we play paintball with around here.

I miss the days when they used to show AWA wrestling on ESPN back in the 80's. Those were the days! ;-D

What card? Does it have to do with "Those who know me call me Tim"
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
