Re: OT : Workout Advice

After losing the 40 pounds doing this I took the next step and did the Insanity workout. That showed me just how important mixing up your workout routine and targeting different areas allowing your body to recover was. It's been a great journey and it's always great to hear how people don't even re...

Rob Niedermayer to the Sabres. Not the top-6 forward, or pp QB I was hoping for, but brings leadership to a team in desperate need of it. Now can he get his bro Scott to join him?

The referee called a foul on the US on every one of their set-piece's. Brutal, if not just plain corrupt.

Get a fork ready for the Sabres. They're done. Oilers were eliminated by Christmas. Sabres are toast. So who the hell am I going to root for in the playoffs once Buffalo is eliminated? I'm leaning toward L.A. Three former Oiler favorites of mine on that team -- Smyth, Stoll and Greene. Plus captain...

I can't stand Chelsea, yet I have to say.... that is probably one of the worst refereeing performances in the history of the CL. Any standard ref would have given them at least 3 penalties tonite, and Pique and Abidal would have been off (at least then Abidal would have gone for something he DID do...

Seond that opinion. I played the heck out of FIFA this winter and enjoyed it, but this WE/PE is better--at least as an offline game.

This my post at OS, copied/pasted: I received the 360 and PS2 versions via mail yesterday and played two games with each version.

Sorry, I know this has been asked and answered many times:

Please tell me a good website to order the PSP version from.

Also, the PSP is region free, correct?

After a week of play I am still really enjoying this one. Does not knock off WE just yet, but it is the best FIFA I have played since I can remember. There are issues for sure, but finally there is a noticable difference between players and teams. In a Manager Mode campaign with West Ham, I am havin...

Can someone please explain the new control scheme?

I was really psyched for 08, but after a week of regular play, I am just not feeling it like I was with 07. I am thinking about giving 2k8 a try, but I would like to hear more about this complicated control scheme.

Thanks.

TW08 plays so much more challenging than 07 ever could even in TOUR Pro. Every difficulty level has been improved and mis- hits and improper tempo will GREATLY impact your shot results.

Any of the four remaining remaining teams could win the Cup and it wouldn't surprise me. No cinderellas this year--all great teams.

I'll be headed to Buffalo Saturday for Game 2, I can't wait. I was at game 5 last Friday for Drury's heroics--unbelievable.

Let's go Buff-a-lo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ESPN has transformed from the likeable, underdog, niche network to a symbol of everything that's wrong with TV today. This is just another example.
