    He took a one man stand against participation trophies for kids a few years back, especially his own. But you already knew that, right?

    Yeah, my brother told me about it. I'm in Portland right now and my wife was at work. It came down about 3/4 of a mile east of my house. I know someone who lives in that neighborhood though.....

    Glad all's well. I'm honestly surprised it doesn't happen more often but tell that to the families of numerous musicians and sports celebs whose lives ended that way.

    University of North Dakota has a very highly rated aviation program but you'd be surprised how many students crash. When I worked sorting mail at the airport we watch a student flip a little dragonfly helicopter on its head and crash. Thing is basically a bubble cockpit and engine and the kid flipped it on its head.:facepalm: reasons I don't ever fly out of ND :eek:

    My brother is a pilot having flown everything from trainers to F-16s. 4 times in his log books in the notes section it says “crashed”. Once he called me for a ride from the next hill over from my house. I looked outside and saw him planted in my neighbors corn field.

    Seahawks were penalized last night for taunting in which Swain (the hero from the previous game) threw the football at a Saints player on the sideline. I don't have a comment on the taunting but rather that it drives home my belief that there is no way Seattle gets lined up to spike that ball before time expires. They are too undisciplined at times.

    No the Rams linebacker who planted him stood over him the same way Juju did to Burfict. I'm not sure a penalty was involved or a fine but the increased emphasis on taunting seems to highly subjective.

    Any idea what model plane the crop duster was

    I first learned my love to fly in a Stearman biplane and these were commonly converted to crop duster

    No ...My Friend I would be lying if I said.
    He did mention it a few times I remember Him , and My Ole Man talking about it, but I was 15, or 16 at the time a long while ago....I'm sure I had other things on my mind.
    It was Yellow. Does that help ?? LoL. If I seen it I could point it out , but that's about it.
    I just looked up the plane You said. It was not it.

    On a side note, those NFL Films were instrumental in me becoming as big a football fan as I am.
