Hi Jim,

You wrote this:

LOL!  They sure do.  

I have friends who watch them every week so I have to give them a hard time and mock the Broncos as much as possible.  grin

I never got into basketball, but I know my nephews do and they even bet on the games, which I think is dangerous (not a big proponent of online betting).

Hopefully they will grow out of it.  

Anyway, best of luck with the Boilers and have a great day!  smile

BTW Darian, my Brother reminded me recently of that skit about Blue Oyster Cult and I had to go rewatch it on YouTube.  

Christopher Walken was on SNL a whole bunch and that was one of the funniest skits ever with that cowbell.  

Just a crack up.  

I liked the days of Belushi and Ackroyd the best though.  

Have a great day Darian.  smile

I was a big fan of Reagan, but Carson did some funny skits playing Reagan. They were hilarious.grin
