Quoted from rotordave:

That wasn't included.

I'm sure it wasn't. He's probably out trying to figure out which oil wells to sell so he can buy some players to help his team actually win.

Good burn!!

I don't follow American football so I have no idea what's going on. All I know is the Patriots seem to win everything and that guy deflated his balls. So to speak.

American football does have a good following in NZ. A lot of the games are live on ESPN back home. Who knew that YEE was a big fan! He was foaming at the mouth about going to the stadium.

That stadium is epic for now, but once ours is done here in Los Angeles it will be the best in the world. Go Rams!
Keep up the great thread RD! My wife and I were discussing how you have seen more of the US than we have...and we've lived here all our lives.

Quoted from cleland:

Cool man!

I think Fiona said that we have been to 39 states now ... so only 12 more to go.

I don't think o-din watches the NFL either!! Them Cowboys are pretty damn good. But he and the boys at the tire shop can keep calling Jerry Jones a bum! Jerry has 3 super bowl rings since he bought the team..I think those are actual wins too!

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Like over 20 years ago. Since then they have been good enough to make the playoffs, but bad enough to choke in them every time.

#257 2 years ago
Quoted from rotordave:

The roof opens up, and both ends can open up with huge stacker doors.

D.D Lewis once said: "Texas Stadium has a hole in its roof so God can watch His favorite team play."

F Stan Kroenke, he is a f'ng dick. I don't hold it against the family though. I went to high school with his son and he was an all right guy.

Well, I have been a LA Ram fan my entire life as I was born and raised here and my dad would take me to home games at both the LA Coliseum and Aneheim. When Georgia Frontiere moved the team to St Louis my dad and I were devistated, but we never stopped supporting the team here in LA watching on Sunday Ticket as a family Sunday get together.
The Greatest Show On Turf years and Super Bowl 2000 were the best for us.

Now I have the pleasure of being a season ticket holder and taking my dad to all the home games (yes it was tough last year, but tailgating is the most fun!). I actually think Stan Kroenke is a good owner and I can't wait to walk into the new stadium (if I can afford the PSL) and enjoy The Rams back in LA like it should be......

I digress...... back to Rotor Dave and The Texas Pinball Festival!!!

Epic times RD

#260 2 years ago

49ers will get to playoffs before Rams
How much you want to bet?

We went to Walmart yesterday to top up on black Dickeys shirts (my uniform lol)

Found these greata (ha!) little arcade games for $19. Colour screen and everything. Play just like a big one.

Had the free drinks at the hotel last night and met up with lots of old Pinside buddies. Old pal NimbleNuts flew in from LAX and we hugged it out manly style.

Josh Henderson and Mr Henderson joined us for drinks and afterward we headed to Blaze Pizza .. TPF handed out buy-one-get-one-free vouchers so we took full advantage of that.

My buddy Jeff Palmer (aka pinballcorpse) was kind enough to FedEx me a FLIPS Florida pinball shirt!

You rock Jeff! \m/

Meanwhile, the old man had a very average day. All the driving caught up with me. Started atrociously, went for a nap at lunchtime and came back with a couple of good games and got up into the 40s.

You can't play pinball when you're tired! You'd think I would have learnt this by now. Haha

#277 2 years ago

GO Dani!

#278 2 years ago

Dude! She did it! Congrats!

#279 2 years ago

Not this time ... though, I did see an "abandoned" episode on Tv just before we left that had huge abandoned schools for sale in St Louis for like $300k. That'd fit a lot of pins! Thought about moving there ...
