    Like to see Allen snap his leg. Accidentally on purpose of course.

    I never heard the term “skullduggery” before, so I decided to look it up: “unfair and dishonest practices carried out in a secretive way in order to trick other people, (humorous)”. Synonyms begin with trickery, dishonesty and cheating.

    While it appears that the act is supposed to be humorous, and other synonyms lower down the pole include mischief, shenanigans and monkey business, I still believe this word was poorly used. It gives me an MTV Jáckâss impression, or something with the idea of poking a guy from behind as he’s winding up for the shot. That’s not the type of actions being performed. Everybody knows of the extra “obstacles” that are in use. Shenanigans would have been a much better choice.

    I call Shenanigans! SHENANIGANS! SHENANIGANS!
    Maybe he can take out Tony Romo as well. Never have liked him.

    Good one Parody– I would take issue with the wording right before your vocabulary find, but Mike W. overall does an excellent job.

    Titus, is that you? It’s getting rather difficult to identify anyone around here.

    In case you didn’t get a chance to read my post about vikingsfootballblog.com. I have been blogging there lately. It’s actually very nice. No imposters, decent topics, and the bloggers are rather cordial with eachother. I’m suggesting that, if this site keeps going to the dogs, you may find vikingsfootballblog.com enjoyable.

    I bike everyday, but on an old mountain bike so 14 miles is work enough. How long does a 45 mile ride take?

    Should take around 3 hrs if he is averaging 15 mph.If he is a real good rider, he could average 20 mph and of course shorten his time on the road.Pedal till you can’t anymore!!
