Was flipping around channels and saw this, tucking a jersey into jeans? Absolutely appalling... 20210807_144420.thumb.jpg.5140dbd9fd9e0f0ae1efb8c0b69aa4c2.jpg

I think that was a thing for about two minutes in the early 90’s 🤣🤣

I remember mocking a dude in my dorm in ‘93 about this so you’re right about the 2 minutes if ever.

Heh heh on this note, I remember being at a Devils-Flyers game back in the early 90s…some Flyer fan was wearing a #9 Eklund jersey that was not only tucked in, but might as well been made of spandex, it was that tight.  Some Devil fan kept razzing him about it until they almost came to blows, but somehow they backed off at the last second.  But yeah that was the weirdest jersey look I have seen at a game.

I made the mistake of tucking my varsity football jersey into my jeans cause it was entirely too long, just so happened Varsity Blues was popular... I got called Mox for entirely too long

This was EARLY 2000s

Any runners in the group?

Last weekend, I eclipsed the 620 mile mark for the year, surpassing my year total from last year, and marking the most I've ever run in a single year in my life, and it was only the end of July.

 

I always grew up HATING running because running was always a punishment in sports. But the only way I could shed any weight in order to meet the upper limit for the military was to force myself to run (for my height, it was 181 lbs, I was around 200 then). Me and my best friend were in the same boat, knowing we needed to get in shape badly so we pushed each other. As a result, I got hooked and she keeps needing me to reminder her to run. Today, I'm back around my weight when I graduated high school, probably about the same minus the lifting strength.

Running my 4th half marathon of the year in October (if not sooner), and I'm hoping to run a full marathon next year (target goal of the Air Force Marathon at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio) if not the Marine Corps one in Virginia

I’m a speedwalker.  I average about 10.7 mi per day.

How “Rated R” was it? Mostly just violence or sex content?

Harley has a sex scene but there’s no nudity. Lots of sexual jokes and references though. John Cena literally has a line where he says he’d eat an entire beach full of dicks for liberty lol. Most of the R rating probably comes from the over the top violence and language, but there’s enough that I probably wouldn’t recommend watching it with your daughter.

Sounds about right, thanks. 14 is a weird age in terms of finding appropriate content.

I thought it was fine but it was absolutely a 1 watch and never again for me. I think Gunns humor is simply not for me, I thought the mom joke was extremely cringe instead of funny and they kept going back to it over and over. A lot of the movie actually gave me Doom Patrol meets Guardians of the Galaxy vibes. They tried to make King Shark like Drax. 

I fully admit I don't like John Cena and never have nor will so I hate seeing him in anything. Elba was fun as Bloodsport though. Viola Davis is the perfect Amanda Waller though, I hope they keep using her going forward if they keep doing more movies.

There's brief nudity in other scenes of both sexes but yeah I definitely wouldn't recommended this for younger kids either.

The fighting and violence I don’t really care about, we watch Marvel stuff, even horror movies, but the sex content is something I prefer she not be exposed to. As I said, it’s a tough age, they don’t want to watch kid stuff any more but adult stuff is sometimes too adult. 

I’ll likely watch it by myself, since it’s on HBO Max.

The violence was definitely kicked up quite a few notches in this, definitely not comparable to anything Marvel wise to me that I can think of. What horror movies have ya been watching together lately? 

Sweet Tooth on Netflix seems like it would be a good one for a family, not really a light and fluffy show but not too dark either. It's a bit timely too considering a big plot point is a virus.

We have been watching The Conjuring series. Scary, violent, but not sexually inappropriate.

I've actually been going through all those too, finished The Curse of La Llorona recently so just have the 3rd Annabelle and 3rd Conjuring to go. They are all pretty much the same formula but I still enjoy them. The nun was definitely the worst one to me so far but the Conjuring 1&2 and Annabelle comes homes have been the ones I liked the most. 

Also really looking forward to the new Child's Play tv series on Syfy coming out in October.

This is super off-topic for even the off-topic thread, but one thing that has really been peeving me lately. Me and my brother are both congruently re-watching The Sopranos and it really pisses me off how many people think that the ending was ambiguous. They were beating you over the head with foreshadowing Tony's assassination that WHOLE season and they even have a shot of the freaking hitman sitting at the diner bar! Tony is dead!

I’ve felt the same way since the show ended. Never understood why anyone was upset with it. What were they supposed to do, show his brutal execution and then roll credits?
