Games / If You Were to Fend Off a Zombie Horde...

Creativity counts here.

Personally, I'd use a spiked horseshoe attached to a rope...or maybe something else.  I'll post it later.

Everything Else / Professional All-Star Games
« on: June 16, 2005, 10:26:26 pm »
Is it just me or are ALL the professional all-star games just popularity contests?

Every year, the same people are put on the teams just because a bunch of people who like a person vote for them.  This isn't to say that they don't all belong there, because many of them do, but year after year, the players who are having great years are shrugged off in favor of someone who will sell tickets because he has a popular name.

This explains Nomar Garciaparra leading the All Star Ballot for the MLB, despite having a terribly mediocre season (at least compared to his previous years.)

So should the All-Star ballot's question be changed from "Who deserves to make the All-Star team?" to "Who is your favorite player?"

Maybe if the leagues stopped letting the fans be THE deciding factor and had some kind of requirements to be on the team (for example: a player needs to have played in X games and should have Y at bats) then the teams would be more "All-STAR" than "All-Favorite."

But maybe the leagues don't WANT anything to be done.  They DO enjoy all the money they get from having games full of favorites.  You can't say the NBA didn't enjoy having all the most popular players on the court all at once, or that the MLB doesn't like that a ton of players from last year's World Series teams will be playing against each other again.

Basically, what I'm saying is that for there to be a true All-Star game in any sport, the league needs to have some kind of criteria which you must meet to be considered to be a candidate.  I mean, would it be fair to put a guy on the NBA All-Stars who scored 28 points a game and played in 25 games over a guy who scored 25 a game and played 42?

Everything Else / Graduation Day

Well...today is the day for GDF and I.  We graduate from high school today.

Who else has, is, or will be graduating soon?  

I'm personally a little upset over it :(

Testing my sig to see if it's too big. If it is, one of the mods can pm me or reply here.  I'll change it if I must.

Nickelodeon / Old Nick Gameshows
« on: May 04, 2005, 06:42:01 pm »
Who here remembers the gameshows they used to have on Nick? Like Legend of the Hidden Temple and Guts.  I remember those so well.  They were my 2 favorite shows at the time.  

I know a lot of you may be too young to remember it well, but I do remember it and a lot of us older people probably do.

What I edited is in bold.  Thanks to Gogita I realized it was Hidden Temple...not Forbidden.

The Pineapple / Revenge of the Cheez
« on: May 01, 2005, 08:33:18 pm »
I don't know how many of you remember me, but I was pretty active on the old Spongebob Area forums.

I have always been named thebigcheez.  My real name is Roger.  I just turned 18 a couple of months ago.  My favorite character is Patrick.

I listen to all types of music, but the last couple of days it's been all Kanye West for me.  My favorite music is Green Day (and not just since American Idiot came out) I've liked them since about 1998.  Dookie is the best CD ever in my opinion.

I play RuneScape.  My name on there is thebigcheez if you wanna add me.  

Well that's basically all I know to say, so yeah.

If there's anything else you all wanna know, let me know.
