OG —

Very well played with Smokey and the Bandit III. Egad — the Snowman dressing up as the Bandit... that may be why Brick killed a guy. And Jaws III in 3-D was pretty bad too.

The Next Karate Kid was the one with the girl, right? That was No. 4 if memory serves.

MT —

We can see GF III for some of the reasons you mentioned, and we were leaning that way until OG dropped some knowledge. There is no way it's in the bottom four, no matter much of a drop off it has from the first two. (Although the three-quels that fail compared to the first two would GF III and Return of the Jedi in the mix for sure.)

And we can all agree that Jomo is aces (and hit print... and send to our attorney).

Done and done.

Colts 19 is a pretty good one sir.

We thought about the 34s but not so much.

Gretzky's 99 is a good call too.

Stewwie —

In some ways U.S tennis faces a similar problem to U.S. soccer. It's a bigger deal elsewhere on the youth sports scene, especially for the girls.

And yes, if Bosh is expecting a raise, he can expect to relocate.

MT —

Could the best WR/DBs in the NFL turn into star curling players, too, under Jomo's tutelage?

Now that's a big story. Cannonball.

You could do the Shaq: "A little shake. A little tingle. A little shake. A little tingle."

MT —

Those are good.

OG — Those also are good, although we'll have to agree to disagree on Namath.

Here's a starting point on our most iconic numbers (and jersey and color and stature and being the only one that has it helps in all facets):

Petty's 43 — paint scheme and the rest make it awesome

Jim Brown's 32

Jordan's 23 with the Bulls

We'd lean toward the 3, but who has the more famous 3 — Dale or Ruth?

We're still looking for one. Thoughts?

OG —

Solid list of cartoon characters. We'd go Homer for sure. Hard to keep Bugs and Mickey off there. Love Fred. Scooby too. Tough Rushmore.

As for Toms, while we love the Tom (of Jerry fame) and Poston, we'll start with Tom Hanks, Tom Brady, Tom Selleck's mustache and one more.

MT —

Dude has had some gigs for sure.

Foghorn is money. And we love Droopy Dog too.

And we had to get that kickball story out there before we were scooped by Obscure Sports Quarterly or it was picked up by The Ocho.

Stewwie —

Thanks for the tip. TKJ's info has been updated and credit has been bestowed.

Jomo —

Have some fun. Enjoy the Co-Colas — Co-Colas taste so much better at the beach.

BiB —

Downtown has been on extended vacation — and he got hitched and honeymooned. So there's that.

And yes, Buffett's wise lyrics do apply. And even if it's not Come this Monday but certainly Come (next) Monday.

FE to the C —

Yes, we believe the Braves have tried everything — even cutting the head off a live rooster.

And Johnny Goofball is digging a pretty deep hole pretty quickly.

FE to the C —

Aaron, yes, far left in fact. Manny and Cabrera are right there with some of the greats you mentioned. We may go Rogers Hornsby and Jimmie Foxx too.

Jomo —

Great list. We'd sub out Denzel for Coach Dale bringing in the preacher before the title game and his quick — "And David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it. And it struck the Philistine on the head and he fell to the ground. Amen."

Jomo —

Very well-played indeed.

And since it was a direct quote, we'll let the Saban moment slide — but barely.

9er —

Great stuff there. Front to back.

Our baseball almost all-timer is Ken Griffey Jr. If not for an injury or three, dude could have been the guy.

UK's ascent — especially in the women's sports — has been impressive.

Not a lot of initial QBs to phone about other Y.A. JT O'Sullivan and J.P. Losman come to mind but not in a good way. Those sound like craft breweries more than quarterbacks.

BiB —

Ortiz does get bonus points for money postseason performances. But are we ready to vote in a guy that we're not sure owns a glove?

BWIll —

Paschall is aces for sure, and no one — NO ONE — knows more college football stats and figures. Period.

That said, he does not love UGA — he covers them. And the rest of the SEC.

Hold on to your visor, but like the blockheaded TFP sports editor, Paschall went to Auburn.

(SHHHHHH. Don't tell anyone.)

BiB —

It's always 5 o'clock somewhere.

Cheer along: I Believe We Will Drink. (Co-Colas of course).

MT —

We never cared for Moonpies — but our miscue there was about getting the Uptons confused. So it goes. Thanks as always for keeping us in the middle.

9er —

Where you been?

And yes, Thanasis Antetokounmpo (brother of Gannis, son of Krull) would need a nickname stat. We'll start with Lightning (as in Go Grease/Greece Lightning, burning up the quarter mile).

And none of those manly movies were selected, but man that was some fun radio yesterday.

BWill8 —

We'll wait a while, but Paschall's breakdown of the Irish-UGA matchup will start with looking at the freshmen — one by one — on each team. Part I of a few hundred starts sometime next year. Maybe.

Jomo —

That's great news. And if the US wins, in honor of the soccer victory, will you start using your head?

Thank you, thank you.
