  1. Verdell, you will hold a particular place of honor in Hoosierland. While we didn’t always like everything we saw you were ALWAYS a true soldier on the court. For that, I hope you always reap the benefits that playing in the candystripes can afford a person.

  2. I forgot what thread it was in so I’ll ask it here:

    Did the poster who claimed there were pictures of dinosaurs drawn by man in National Geographic ever provide any links?

    After a thread is pushed out of the top 5 responses, I don’t read them anymore.

    Would love to see those pics.

  3. He actually posted a picture of Pat Robertson riding a T-Rex wearing a saddle and bridle. The T-Rex, not Pat. It was only in black and white but it was a very old photograph.

  4. I can’t believe I’m having to explain this but I was joking. There is not actually a black and white photograph of Pat Robertson riding a T-Rex (to the best of my knowledge).

  5. Seeing as there are photo-shops of almost anything, I don’t know why you “can’t believe” I’d think there was such a picture when I was told there was one.
