Really good podcast as usual! And thank you Walter for asking Griffith what phone he got. I was starting to fear it wouldn't be mentioned.  :serpico:

One thought that came to mind when you were talking about Casca and her ability to sense her son is if there could be a scenario where she could perhaps lose that ability when she's restored.

Great podcast! I particularly like the discussion about Zodd.

One thought that came to mind when you were discussing Griffith's end was him thinking, even for a moment, about a quiet life with Casca looking after him, young Guts and Pippin the dog, and wondering if perhaps that would have been a better life; that at that point he would think of something he once considered so despicable in a completely different way. I know it's not going to happen, it was just a thought I had.

Congratulations! I'm really glad everything turned out fine in the end. I also wish your wife a speedy recovery.

Anyone on board season 2? How is it so far?

I've watched three episodes of season 2 and I'm enjoying the show as much as I did during season 1. I particularly liked the ending of the third episode.

I recently watched the first season and I'm watching the first episode of the second season now. I also got interested in the show because of all the awards it won and I have to say I've enjoyed watching it so far.

Claire Danes is fucking annoying

I think Danes is trying to be like Deb from Dexter with the aggressive attitude and cursing, while she doesn't come close

I agree with your opinions about the majority of the cast but I disagree when it comes to Claire Danes; I actually liked her performance (but I've always liked her, so perhaps I'm biased)

Great episode! :ubik: My favorite part was the rat attack incident, I was laughing throughout the whole section. It wasn't a funny incident but your discussion of it certainly was.

Double post!

So I watched the gold medal match between Team USA and Spain (on my phone while in a theme park, so it wasn't the best viewing experience). I think it was a good game; it was certainly closer than I expected considering how both teams did during the tournament. Spain were able to compete all the way through part of the fourth quarter, but in the end Team USA were able to pull away. There were times where I got the impression that the referees were a little too picky and making some strange (for lack of a better word) decisions (was this just me or did someone else got the same impression?)

I haven't been following the NBA that much lately and so I was surprised to hear that the Lakers had landed both Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. By the looks of it they will be pretty strong next season (unfortunately for me :troll:).

Man, that Mitch Mupchak is nothing short of a genius; first he got Gasol and now Howard. Kobe must be quite happy these days.

Whoops, got lost in the link copy-pasting shuffle. Fixed, and here it is again:

Thanks for the link! I started watching at 37:50 and ended up watching until the end. Like you I wish they'd just release the unedited footage of the Monte Carlo game.

I remember Stockton not being recognized on the street even by the girl with the dream team shirt.  :ganishka:

Great find m, I enjoyed reading this 14 page article. Just as you, I would like to see the video of this game.

I'm glad you enjoyed the article! I actually got the link from a friend.  :iva:

Skip to to the 37:50 mark, fellas. You don't get see much of the game, but it gives you an idea of the intensity they played with.

I get the impression that you meant to add a link, or perhaps I'm missing something? :???:

BTW, another of the greatest games few have seen:

See for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9-MNf2RO5k#t=4m57s

Jesus, looking at it again even I'm amazed how inexplicably tight this game gets in the 4th quarter, and I watched it live. Seriously, watch the video from that starting point. In hindsight everyone acts like the "Redeem Team" rolled like it was a given, but anyone that's watched some basketball will recognize they were on the edge of real disaster here. Simmons is right, had they blown this game they would have been more infamous than The Nightmare Team.

Great game! :ubik: I don't think I saw it live. Let's hope the London games bring us good basketball!

Reading the article and watching this video made me want to shoot some hoops.

Great podcast as usual. At the end of the episode all I wanted was some chicken cordon bleu.  :beast:

You may want to move away from using canned shaving foam, m. I read it dries out the skin a lot quicker and canned shaving stuff comes with chemicals that may/ may not harm the skin over a period of time.

Thanks for the tip! Like Skullgrin140 I was not aware of risks associated with canned foam.

Shaving is something I really don't care for, I shave at most once a week or once every other week even though I should probably shave every day. I use cheap disposable Gillette razors. I so seldom shave that a can of foam lasts for years.

Double post and reviving an old thread. Fantastic!

I just wanted to say that I'd really like to watch the game this article refers to: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1201220/1/index.htm, but I'm not sure there's a basketball dedicated thread so I thought I'd put it here.

I'm very close to the end of The Great Dune Trilogy which includes Dune, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune (I'm getting some good reading suggestions on this thread  :serpico:)

Next I'll be reading The Night Visitor and Other Stories by B. Traven, which includes a story I like a lot called Macario.

I used to follow F1 when I the races were shown on a TV channel I have access to; now that they have been moved to a paid channel I haven't been paying as much attention as before. I still read the results on the paper the day after the race, but it's not the same.

I think the first driver that I was a fan of was Prost and then I liked Schumacher. Nowadays I'm more of a fan of Ferrari rather than a specific driver.

Very entertaining podcast and really good Breaking Bad impressions by Gobolatula. :serpico: Unfortunately I had to skip part of the Breaking Bad discussion as I'm still watching season 3 and it seemed like the conversation contained what would be spoilers to me.  :judo:

I just finished Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop until I finished it.
