Week four's trivia question, "Since the NFL went to the eight-division format in 2002, what are the only two teams from the same division that have met three times in playoff games?"  The answer is Ravens and Steelers.  Baltimore and Pittsburgh (from the AFC North) met in playoff games at Heinz Field in the 2008, 2010 and 2014 seasons.
This week's trivia question from Aaaron's prison notes examines name selection...  For the second time in three weeks, two quarterbacks with the same first name selected in the first round went head to head. Carson Palmer and Carson Wentz met last Sunday, and Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford squared off in Week 3. This doesn't happen often.  I had not happened with a different pair, in fact, since 1995. Who were those quarterbacks? Both were selected in the first round, had the same first name, and that pair were in the same division.
a.  Jim Plunkett / Jim Kelly
b.  Jim Kelly / Jim Harbaugh
c.  Jim Harbaugh / Jim McHahon
d.  Jim McMahon / Jim Plunkett

This week's winner(s) will receive a cold beer from  Commissioner Purvis at the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street in Memphis, TN.  Offer only good through Saturday, 10/14/17.

Please send your email answers to to E.A. Presley, Editor and Chief.

ThinkPad 25th Anniversary Edition


Believe it or not, the Lenovo ThinkPad, very likely to have been your first laptop, is turning 25 years old this year. And to celebrate, Lenovo is putting out a new 25th anniversary edition that brings the classic back into the modern era, and it’s called the ThinkPad 25.
The Lenovo ThinkPad 25 sports an Intel Core i7 processor, a 14-inch full HD touchscreen, and other technological features that none of the original ThinkPads could have dreamed of having. But on a superficial level, it looks just like the old hotness, so if unlike me you have any pleasant memories of your old ThinkPad it might be worth a purchase.
I say “might be” because as the ThinkPad 25 is something of a retro throwback, its price also hearkens back to a time when laptop computers were a bit pricier than they are now. It comes in a variety of models with prices starting at just under $1900 – you can check them all out at Lenovo’s official site for the anniversary edition computer here.

Tech  Addiction

These days we are all somewhat caught in an "Internet lifestyle", so here are some things you can do in the horrific event your ISP or cellular service goes down...
1. Dial 911 immediately from a land line.
2. Open the curtains to see if anything has changed over the past 2 years.
3. You mean there's something else to do?
4. Threaten your ISP or cellular carrier with an impeachment vote.
5. Work.
6. Re-introduce yourself to your immediate family.
7. Get that kidney transplant you've been putting off.
8. See if your eyes can still focus to distances further than 3 feet.
9. Get ass groove in chair fixed at store.
10. Tylenol... Tylenol! Where the hell is the Tylenol!
11. Do shopping with clothes on.
12. Check your mail box every 15 minutes.


Porky Pig Mac n Cheese

1 pound of shredded wild pork
1 cup BBQ sauce
½ pound Elbow noodles
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar
4oz cream cheese (softened)
1 egg
½ cup heavy cream
2 ½ cups milk
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons garlic, crushed
½ cup shredded jack
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cracked pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon mustard powder

1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bring 4 cups of salted water to boil and add Macaroni and cook for 7 mins until pasta is al dente (cooked firm).   While the pasta is cooking, start on topping. Melt butter over medium heat, add garlic and panko and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes.  Then remove from heat and cool.
Now for the cheese sauce… In a large pot melt butter over medium heat, whisk in mustard, paprika and flour until fully mixed and flour begins to brown.  Wisk the egg, milk, cream along with salt and pepper.  Add milk mixture to flour mixture and simmer for 5 minutes.  Now remove the pasta and drain.

Add cream cheese, cheddar and jack to milk mixture and whisk until fully melted.  No fold in the pasta with the cheese sauce.  Pour mixture into a greased baking dish and top with panko bread crumbs.  You will bake for 20 minutes. The final move is to add the shredded pork and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.  After cooking, let it rest a few minutes and serve.
