It's time to do or die, sink or swim, insert cliche here, insert another cliche here.
A number of local teams face must-win situations tonight if they want to keep their postseason hopes alive, while others need wins to improve their playoff seeding, so the stakes will be high under the Friday night lights in the Lowcountry.
Out today is yet another raunchy teen comedy that will appeal to those who can't get enough of the "American Pie" type comedy. "Sex Drive" tells the story of 18-year-old Ian who has met a girl online and who wants him to drive to Knoxville, Tenn., to meet her. He steals his brother Rex's (James Marsden) car and heads off on a road trip with his friends for the romantic meeting.
Wave Of McCain Robocalls Reported, Some May Violate State Law
October 16, 2008 04:37 PM
The McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee launched a massive robocall campaign on Thursday designed to alarm voters about Barack Obama's past association with former radical Bill Ayers. The committee may be violating state law in the process.
URGENT WARNING ABOUT REPUBLICAN TRICKS!
Some really bad people are sending emails that say not to vote a straight Democratic ticket in SC. Some say that your vote won't count for Obama if you vote a straight Democratic ticket, or that pushing the Democratic button will cancel your vote. Some of them even PRETEND to come from the Democratic Party.
THOSE EMAILS ARE NOT TRUE!!
Growing up with cult indoctrination scared to death of Armageddon turned me into a Watchtower Jehovah Witness Zombie.
A Phobic World View
The first step that the Watch Tower takes in their indoctrination of their followers is to develop the concept of the "universal war" that all people are inevitably caught up in, namely, that Satan has declared war on Jehovah, and we are automatically on one side or the other; there are no fence-sitters.
WHY VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA?
ONLY AS A LAST RESORT: MCCAIN TARGETS THE MIDDLE CLASS
According to the news media, John McCain's economic advisers recently met to discuss new economic measures aimed at the middle class.
What? McCain is finally considering the middle class?
Unfortunately, this is just another attempt to try to save a poorly managed campaign in the final days before an election. McCain's advisers believe this will give him something fresh to talk about and diminish the impression that his campaign relies solely on negative attacks.
So I guess "I'm not a crook" has some competition!
Lilly has a tiger by the tail,many Zyprexa claimants have NOT been paid yet.
Eli Lilly makes billions on diabetes treatment and also gets $4.2 billion a year in sales of their biggest cash cow Zyprexa which has been scandalized as *causing* diabetes as a major side effect.
Zyprexa off label promotion scandal is all over the news now.
Lilly drug reps are alleged to have called their marketing ploy,"Viva zyprexa".
Finally, some drama.
It's about time we had some dramatic conclusions around here, after what seems like an eternity of blowouts and anti-climactic endings since Beaufort High's last-second victory at Hilton Head High back in Week 1.
The Lowcountry saw not one, but two, nail-biters last night, as Beaufort High's Jimmy Legree blocked a field goal to preserve a 13-12 victory against Wando, and Thomas Heyward's Jack Rainey nailed a 39-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Rebels to a 26-23 win against First Baptist.
I wait all year for this day, the day I get to pull out one of my all-time favorite sports quotes and say, "Playoffs? PLAYOFFS?"
