    You literally cant make up how crazy the religion is. A guy created the religion as an excuse to be a polygamist, he was a christian, but christianity looked down on polygamy, so he invented a religion that revolved around him. If he was a man who took joy in murdering people, then he would have made murdering people socially acceptable in his religion.
    They have been on the air for several years now. It is simply an attempt for the modern mormon church to try to work its way into the mainstream and dispel old myths (such as that they continue to allow polygamy).

    While I do not buy in to the whole Joseph Smith/Book of Mormon deal, I would also caution making derogatory statements about others' faith. Some would be quick to remind you that Jesus of Nazerath was a carpenter that brought people back to life and magically turned a few fish into enough to feed thousands. Others similarly might break down Islam as a 6th century man claiming to hear angels and dictate a book of laws. It all can sound far-fetched without eyes of faith.

    yes, pro-Mormon commercials have been on the air for awhile now...in fact, I remember a couple years ago my mom telling me that the commercials were to set up a a positve image for the likely next republican candidate...and she was right.

    The commercials are in full force now though...way more pro-mormon agenda out there right now.

    yeah, I have debated giving up fantasy football for awhile.

    In my other league, I was playing against a buddy who has the Vikings kicker, and I found myself cheering against a player of my favorite team...this situation has arose a lot of times in the past couple years. I am getting better at not letting it bother me, but sometimes it still does.

    Fantasy does make other games that I usually wouldnt watch more interesting though.

    I have the motto. Put the vikings first then ff. I started Ponder this week in one of my leagues and got crushed by that but vikes won so I was ok with it.

    I liked you last comment, I also find myself watching more thursday night and monday night games because of ff.

    I used to let my hatred of the Packers get in my way of fantasy football as well...until I started playing for money, now I will take a Packer if it is the right move.

    no, when I shoot, I yell "raindrops!".

    It is an auto-swish as well.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    3 of my best friends are mormon. Uh, most of them don't live that life per say.
    Besides, for me personally, anything but Obama. Anything.

    Romney isn't much better! But whatever floats your boat.

    Romney is turrible candidate. Just turrible! And I don't say that because he's a Republican. I say that simply because he is a terrible candidate along the lines of a John Kerry. A "candidate by default" if you will.

    Turns out fantasy football is a crapshoot. Seriously, it's like flipping a coin to see who "wins." Baseball seems to be a long enough season with enough games that the best teams land on top at the end (most of the time). I've never played fantasy basketball so unfortunately I can't speak for it. I'd guess an 82 game season is less of a crap shoot than a 16 game season with a **** ton of injuries but who knows.
