Spelling is a pet peeve of mine. I get typos, it happens. But in this day and age, incorrect spelling baffles me.

Gonna close up shop on this one as we got our usual crew to respond.


1990 it was! Fun story, Rodney Peete was the Lions actual starter, but this Gagliano fellow still led the team in interceptions.

Yes! lol if it weren't for Jeff George, I probably woulda said 89

BCS IS better than BB, and it's rather funny that the Cartel stuff that was obviously the main proponent of BB is easily the worst part of BCS (or, at least, needs to be refined to go back to focusing on Nacho and stop doing the fan service thing with Gus).

No need to convince me lol  ;-)

Yea, the JFK episode was just like my parents described it to me. Really sad and tragic.

I liked BB, but I just can't see it as an all time greatest like everyone else does. To me, it just doesn't carry the breadth that the other top shows do.
Not necessarily a bad thing but its just not in my top 5. Now, Better Call Saul...? Thats a different animal, I actually like it better than BB

Bubby Brister lol never thought Id hear that name again.
I think 89 at first glance but it can't be because George was number one pick in 90, so Im going with 1990.

Mad Men

I just finished up this series for the first time and I really enjoyed it.
For one, I love the era and two, the show integrates the culturally significant events of that time. Everything from the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kent Stat, MLK, moon landing, etc...
This show is about loneliness in life and in the business and how people deal with that internally. It also is a great representation of the cultural shift from the early 60's to the 70's. The misogyny and sexism are off the charts and for me at least, its tough to watch sometimes, but necessary.
Excellent character growth here among several main players, well portrayed all the way around.
Mad Men is a heavy drama in a slow burn and I think it's worthwhile. It may even edge in to my top five all time.

that's great stuff lol

Thats clip also shows why I hate, I absolutely despise those panel highlight shows for any sport. You can't decipher anything because everyone has to talk at the same time, it's entirely annoying.

Say I miss an easy spare. No problem right? Come back, string some marks together, easy recovery. Not for me. I would berate myself, "An 8 year old blind kid could make that shot are you kidding me? Just kick me off this flipping team, I shouldn't be allowed to bowl with shots like that." and on and on. By then, as you know, it was over, that game was over, and the next, and the next.
And all the while, I hear everyone having a good time, but I choose to sink. I KNOW its going to make me worse, but I like it! I want it, I deserve it. Would ruin my night, and sometimes even the next day, over what? I feel absolutely foolish even putting this out here,
but you can imagine the rest. Just terrible.

I mean, this it, right? Other people miss a spare or a strike and they go "Ah that's too bad" and go pick their beer back up. We miss that and think "We're the worst, we're holding the team back, they're going to hate us because they'd be winning every tournament if we weren't on the team, we're going to get kicked off the team and they won't speak to us."

It's like, a combination of expecting too much of ourselves and putting way too much stress and pressure in situations that DO NOT call for it, and a fear of rejection, like, I have to be perfect otherwise everyone will hate me.

It's a lot, but, it is nice that someone gets it, even if I also wish you didn't get it, just for you own peace and sanity, heh.

Thats a bingo, and absolutely same goes for me lol

I'm tough on myself for any mistake. Mistakes to me are the end of the world. They are not missteps, they are not practice, they are simply failure. I see things in a very success/fail way, which is weird, because you can make a mistake and recover from it and things end fine, even if there's a slight mess to be cleaned up, but my brain, in the moment, doesn't care about any of that. I fucked up, it's a knock against me, and I don't deserve a promotion. That's how my brain thinks.

I latched on to this because this has been a huge obstacle for me. I am relentless and staunchly unforgiving of myself for the simplest bad decisions or mistakes or what have you.
Remember that scene in Six Feet Under, forget what season, but
Spoiler: show
Nate was in a bar and mouthed off to a patron who then just kicked the shit out of him? He kept egging the guy on because he felt he deserved it.

That was/is me, to a freakin T and its unhealthy as fuck.
Ill give you an example that when you read it, it will seem so silly, and it is, which is what Ive come to realize.
I picked up bowling again a few years ago, walked into a center, joined a league and team at random and have been with them for three years now.
I poured myself into getting better, equipment, practice, lessons etc...Fast forward and I felt I was better, and I was, much much better
but, if I had a bad frame or two...not even a game, but frame! Say I miss an easy spare. No problem right? Come back, string some marks together, easy recovery. Not for me. I would berate myself, "An 8 year old blind kid could make that shot are you kidding me? Just kick me off this flipping team, I shouldn't be allowed to bowl with shots like that." and on and on. By then, as you know, it was over, that game was over, and the next, and the next.
And all the while, I hear everyone having a good time, but I choose to sink. I KNOW its going to make me worse, but I like it! I want it, I deserve it. Would ruin my night, and sometimes even the next day, over what? I feel absolutely foolish even putting this out here,
but you can imagine the rest. Just terrible. Luckily, my friends wrote it off and stuck with me.
Ive worked on my cognitive shortcomings and am overcoming this nonsense but I get it, completely.
I know that wasn't the entire gist of your post but just letting you know, its not just you.
Im confident you will overcome and always hit us up here if you want.
