Jul 22nd 2011 1:26PM I was in the Navy in 1966 and spent an entire spring and summer on the beach where I was stationed and also in Virginia Beach which was only a few miles from the base. The liberty bus would take us to Virginia Beach whenever we wanted to go. It was a great time when Virginia Beach WAS a small town with the houses transformed into bars and restaurants. You could walk from the beach with just your swim trunks and flip-flops into any of them. I went back around 1978 and it had all changed. The town was gone and replaced with high rise hotels and condos. The place was expensive and the small town atmosphere was gone. Would never go back. Point of all this? Enjoy it while you can because it will change overnight and all you will have is your memories.
Jun 21st 2011 9:17PM Don't pick on Arnie. He is doing the right thing, and if they both weren't celebrities it wouldn't even be news. Let's talk about the pro basketball player who fathered 10 kids with Eight different women and didn't pay a dime with his multi-million bonus. Yea, let's talk about him!
Jan 12th 2011 1:00PM Always looked forward to the end of each episode when Rick would sing his song. After reading all the posts it's heartening to know there are many people still who remember the "Good Old Days" and agree that TV today is crap. Maybe our country still has something left. RIP David and let's not forget Michael Landon, the Waltons, Fess Parker and the Mickey Mouse Club.
Dec 20th 2010 6:53PM There are only a few Superstars in country music and All of them came from the same era. George Jones, Meryl Haggard, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, and Hank Williams etc. And on the female side we have to mention Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Kline and Tanya Tucker. Todays "so called" country stars are a poor excuse for singers, songwriters and performers. They are a bunch of pretty faces that are promoted to the hilt and have very little actual talent. Once in a while someone will come thru like Garth and maybe Ricky Scaggs, but in general none will live on like those Legends of the 1950's and 60's.....
Dec 8th 2010 4:11PM "The day the music died" was written about Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper, not John Lennon.....
Dec 8th 2010 12:57PM After 3 trips to Vietnam I have learned that just reaching old age is an accomplishment even if you are broke when you get there. John had a good life but cut short. So did the 58000+ in Vietnam and the 2500+ at Pearl Harbor. A talented guy, but just another life lost young. Let it be.
Aug 28th 2010 9:31AM I would rather go to Put-In-Bay near Sandusky, Ohio and Cedar Point, the best roller coaster park in the world. Weather is warm, people are friendly and the best walleye fishing anywhere.
Aug 15th 2010 10:24AM You know, man has been fishing since he first walked upon this earth and size is everything when it comes to fishing. Give the guy his do, and I hope it is a record so the fish will go into the record books with the fisherman. My question is, was the fish caught on the Missouri side of the river or Illinois, Kentucky or Tennessee? All of these States border Missouri by the Mississippi River?? Also, I believe the fish is a flathead catfish.
Jul 30th 2010 7:47PM JWbradley333 First, I said nothing about 10 years. As far as a household name, I doubt if 5 people out of a hundred know who he is, probably less. Don't you realize that the SYSTEM has all of you brainwashed with sports and music while they slip their hand into your wallet and say "watch this over here and listen to this over there as they slip the $$ out of you who are too stupid to realize what's going on. Watch Ghost Hunters and the reality shows so you can be brainwashed like most people are. You would probably spend your last dollar to go to the ballpark rather than pay a bill or buy food...Wake Up.
Jul 30th 2010 6:47PM All he can lose is his money even if he never pitches again for the rest of his life. He can still get a job and raise a family and do whatever he likes to do. He's just a grain of sand on the beach and although he would lose his chance to be a household name, who cares?
