  • Clarification please!!!

    Okay! I've been doing a little research, and I'm trying to figure out just how a bunch of Scotsmen got involved in rooting for an NFL team. Not that we don't appreciate your devotion and loyalty to the Rams, but every sport I can find related to Scotland involves getting RID on an object! Hammer THROW...caber TOSS...stone THROW...Curling??? Sliding a stone across the ice AWAY from you. Even golf! Hit the ball as far as you can, THEN walk after it! Football is all about ball POSSESSION!!!! I'm soooo confused!! But, I must say thanks for sharing your love of the Rams with the rest of us by starting Clanram!

        Sorry guys, I couldna resist. I figure if I'm gonna stir something up, it should be with the toughest guy around (read: boss man). That way everyone will think I'm crazy, and won't take anything I say too seriously. LOL!!

                                Pet Peeves That Really Tick You Off!
                                by RammieGirl
                                I don't know about you guys but I have 2 things that really tick you off and that's being nice.

                                1) Why do businesses give numbers out like 1-555-4My-Cars? That's obviously an example but give me the FRICKEN NUMBER, ya know!! I don't want to have to go and look at my phone and look at the number underneath the letters.... GRRRRRRR

                                2) When I call a business with a question/concern all I want to do is talk to a HUMAN, is that too much to ask??? I get tired of pressing 3 for this and 6 for that and so on and then after all is said and done, I get disconnected. GRRRRRRRRR

                                Okay, my soapbox is now tucked away in my closet for awhile, lol, this happens to me all the time and I was wondering if you guys have similar encounters or other ones that you want to share.

                                So I've read a couple more posts, about leaving the Rams fan that I saw, Goodbye, don't let the doorknow hit you where the good Lord split you. What's the definition of a fair-weather-fan? They are around when its convienant for them. So if the team is winning, or the weathers nice, and they got 2 know what I'm saying? Well I would like to say something to all those "fans" who are "done" with the Rams. Please become a Winers fan so I can dispise you more then kids and vegetables. We don't need your kind here, raining on our already dim day. We all know that the Rams are a very bad team, and that's not gonna change tomorrow. I have faith that the Rams are gonna be good sooner or later. And whenever that day comes, it will only make this that much better. Fanhood is not something you pack in a bag, and and pull is out when its convienant. To make a long story short, if you wanna leave, leave, but don't you dare comeback and act like you've been here the whole time. This isn't about the past, this is now. Want some, get some...GoRams

                                A Head Coaches Song
                                by Curly Horns
                                I have said it before and I will say it again.

                                Being a head coach in the NFL is a volatile occupation.

                                Personally, I don't think the fans are any worse in St. Louis than in any other city with an NFL team. Most coaches are escorted off the field by an officer of the law in every stadium accross the country. Bernie M. probably sees more hate mail about Martz than Martz himself ever sees. I seriously doubt Martz has the time or inclination to sit around and read about what the fans think of him.

                                I always liked Jim Mora Sr. He was a no BS coach and was not one to sugar coat things.

                                I think he once said it best to the media and the fans alike.

                                "You think you know, but you don't know, and you never will know"

                                I have no doubt that is true. On the other hand, I think the reason we don't know is because coaches generally don't care what fans or the media think. It's a two-way street in my opinion. Most coaches grow up in this occupation. They know what it is like going in. It is nothing they have not seen their entire careers. If and when a coach begins to succomb to the reviews of the critics I think he has lost it.

                                I'm not trying to justify it one way or the other. I'm simply stating my opinion. If we were to truly boil it all down, then this game of football means absolutely nothing in life. We live in a society where athletes playing a game are making millions more than hard working Americans, who risk their own lives, to protect the lives of not only these athletes but the citizens of this country. Making millions and profiting on the backs of hard working Americans over a game - Is that in itself not shameful?

                                Yes being in the limelight as an NFL head coach is a volatile occupation. One in which you must cast the critics asside and do what you believe is right. I don't see it being an occupation for the bleeding heart type.

                                A Head Coaches Song:

                                I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
                                A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
                                When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
                                No one recognized me, I didn't look the same

                                But it's all right now
                                I learned my lesson well
                                You see, ya can't please everyone
                                So ya got to please yourself

                                People came from miles around, everyone was there
                                Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
                                An' over in the corner, much to my surprise
                                Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

                                But it's all right now
                                I learned my lesson wel
                                You see, ya can't please everyone
                                So ya got to please yourself
                                Lot-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

                                Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
                                No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
                                I said hello...

                                The return... of the kick the bucket club...
                                by Guest
                                Thank you all so much for comments to this thread . it seems that my ( grammar ) not grammer , seems to bother people . and my spacing when i write a longer reply . But what bothers me the most is that while people are shredding me up and calling me mean and cruel , no one ever asked what i meant . Everyone just figured i was somehow happy that GEORGIA was ill , and getting ready to pass away . which is not true at all . she was a great woman , and how could i pass judgement on someone i don't know , or ever even met .

                                the kick the bucket club was a FICTIONAL conversation between a FAN , and the COACH and FO people . it was about making all of these so called ( major shakeup ) changes . and they start by going through the sacrificial lambs ( OLSON , MOSES , ROBINSON , so far ....) but it stressed that they were moving too get rid of all the old veterans ...( BRUCE , WILKINS , MCCOLLUM , STUISSE , GLOVER , LITTLE , CHAVOUS ....... the players at the end of their days on the field ... HENCE , THE RAMS ARE THE ..Kick the bucket CLUB .

                                SO PLEASE !!!! if the next time you don't really understand what i'm talking about or have a question on the point i'm making , just ask me . it's not really that great when you get cut-up by EVERYONE who never understood the meaning of the story in the first place .

                                and i was really surprised of the HARSH critics of my GRAMMAR , not GRAMMER , when the grammar and spelling on every website is 4th grade levels . it's mind bogling really when you think of it .

                                well , it's nice too be back , and i'll keep my comments too myself and i'll just read the threads for know on , and practice watching the people who have better grammar , write correctly . thanks for your time . sorry if i offended anyone in previous threads . to hurt someone's feeling on purpose .

                                sincerly . KK

                                I got this from the cards M-board

                                Random thoughts from people 25-35 years old.

                                -I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

                                -More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
                                think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
                                my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

                                -Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
                                realize you're wrong.

                                -Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
                                going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to
                                be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction
                                from which you came, you have to first do something like check your
                                watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to
                                ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by
                                randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

                                -That's enough, Nickelback.

                                -I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

                                -Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know"
                                feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose
                                not to be friends with?

                                -Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
                                work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
                                fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
                                know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
                                or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

                                -Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
                                suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first saw it.

                                -I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
                                becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting
                                90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's
                                laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit
                                harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one
                                who really, really gets it.

                                -How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

                                -I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
                                take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

                                - I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
                                your computer history if you die.

                                -The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

                                - A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
                                spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

                                - LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
