what kind of pre-season super cup is played in December??!?

Napoli requested that it be moved because it was originally scheduled between our two CL playoff matches.

You a Napoli fan, KP?

This is a well known Forum Fact.

You just lost some cool points (CP) in my mind, pal. #ForzaJuve

Yuck, yuck, yuck. Their decline down the league table can't come quickly enough.

You might be moving down a spot on my buddies page if that does not occur lol (I'm not holding my breath - Juventus is strong as ever this year)

More like rest of the league is still average, at best.

Proud to say he was the first person I ever voted for. The problem is that he'll be relatively ineffective because of the legislature belonging to the Republicans.

Not necessarily. The Democrats didn't have control of the Legislature here during most of when Rendell was Governor; yet he was definitely.... effective. 

Rendell was an experienced politico and knew his way around though. Wolf isn't an experienced politico, he's a businessman, and generally it seems business people don't have the same touch.

And the honeymoon will soon be over. Reality is setting in.

I'm inclined to disagree, his recent window dressing (refusing to take a salary, etc.), even though alot of it's obvious considering he's wealthy, makes him more popular.

That feel good stuff doesn't last long. Voters aren't going to care that he isn't taking a salary a year or two into his term. Not to say that the no salary, gift ban, etc. doesn't get praise. It's just that in comparison to looming budget battles/realities, people won't care.

Is it possible Murphy could run for AG if he doesn't run for his old seat in PA-08?

He isn't running in the 8th as far as I know. He won't run for AG either with Williams essentially in the race.

I know she has passed on running but this is too good to pass up - Even Bob Brady (!) has turned on her - http://mobile.philly.com/news/?wss=/philly/hp/news_update/&id=286166121


This is after DA Williams got two of the subjects of the "racist" sting to plead guilty and after Kane made up the existence of some sworn affidavits (that were actually just memos that she supposedly had staff put together after she made the comment about affidavits existing).

But remember, guys! Talk about her downfall was just that of "GOP hacks." No scandal/gross incompetence to see here! Move along!

But related to the Senate race, the word is that Josh Shapiro might seriously choose to primary Kane. That's how bad this has gotten!

Eh, Seth Williams would be my preferred candidate.

...Williams is more conservative than Shapiro...

You do have a point there. I mean Sestak could have ran for his old seat, but at the same time Meehan's got that seat as long as he wants it.

...ok...what does that have to do with Williams being more conservative than Shapiro/the AG race? Tongue

I was implying Shapiro for Senate.

Oh, ok, now this makes sense. Tongue

Looks like Shapiro is really shying away from the Senate race though.

Oh God. I figured Braum's was like an Arby's. Instead, it's much, much worse. I guess the silver lining is that they didn't try to pass it off offensively by calling it "Alfredo's" or "Mama DiRosa's" or something.

It's not an Italian place. Huh

Is this a question?

The joint is called a spaghetti "warehouse," is it not? Then again, I guess I should have known that in most places in our great country, that doesn't mean Italian.
Braum's and Spaghetti Warehouse are two different chains. We have a Spaghetti Warehouse in Memphis. Sadly, we do not have a Braum's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braum%27s


Oh, I missed the "&" in the screenshot about Braum's being robbed. I thought it was "Braum's Spaghetti Warehouse." This makes more sense. We also had a Spaghetti Warehouse in Philly. My friends dragged me there once. So sickening.

Is the point of thread that Jews are privileged beyond Christians in today's world? That would be a very problematic position, but I can't see any other purpose , epecially considering how bad the analogy is.

We found where memphis cares about religion!
I don't care about any religion. I am concerned about ethnic tensions. Perhaps it's too subtle a distinction for some people, but it is an important one.

Oh, I know, you crusader (oops! Bad term?) for the downtrodden!

Maybe he wants a conservative Democrat as AG?

Yeah, I don't think so.
