What's so nice about cornhole?
I suspect innuendo is part of the game, otherwise why use the term 'woody?' So you can shout out, "I got a woody!" when your bag lands on the board. Now they want people to take the game seriously. It's too late for that.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to prepare for tonight's Circle Jerk Tournament.
What? Where I come from, that's what we call Jinga.
Susan +100 points.
And this is why we can't have anything nice.
@Jeff: Absolutely! We're proud to be involved this year. Be sure to check out the 'Pink Prism' booth right out front. We'll be previewing the trendy new bleaching tints for the holiday season.
I used to love cornhole, but this isn't the version of the game we used to toss behind the barn when I was a strapping young lad. The terminology is similar, but I don't recall keeping score quite this way. Plus, this version completely leaves out the instant win, called the "money shot."
Hey Smitty, are you one of the tournament sponsors? If not, you're missing out on a great opportunity to spread your message.
Love this game. Anyone who still thinks the name is nasty needs to evolve with everyone who loves the name and the game. Also a great social activity.
Don't whine. Redefine.
This game is totally nasty and without redeeming social value beyond the pejoratives it calls to mind.
I'd like to suggest another film for this list: M*A*S*H*.
Nolte getting out of bed in ND40 is the essence of football.
What about my favorite! The Blind Side http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1hG_mjQojw
LOVE knowing about Memphis fashion events - thanks for keeping us posted and keep up the good work!
For some reason, football is a hard sport to transfer (meaningfully) to the screen. So many good baseball, boxing, golf(!) movies. "Miracle" (hockey flick on 1980 U.S. Olympic team) is better than any football movie I've seen. Same with "Hoosiers."
Just like Dee Dee posted above on 15Jan2012, I was on the internet today and decided to Google "Memphis Beat" to see when the 3rd Season would start. It was very disappointing to see that TNT cancelled this show. My husband and I watched every show and enjoyed the "quirky" characters, the music and everything else about this little jewel. The series finale, which revealed the photos in the calendar, was so poignant...need I say more.
Midtown: Please check out the films that we're screening at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art - we've got cult classics, indies, foreign films, and more, screening more than 100 films a year.
All to often foreign and indie films that play in Nashville, Little Rock and New Orleans never are shown in Memphis. Midtown needs a indie movie house.

Please contact me on facebook (Deborah Roldan-Dixon) and I will find out where you can send your donation. I grew up in California and now live in Memphis. Funny!
I now live in California but grew up in Memphis going to many shows around town and whenever I would see Chris Chew in the crowd somewhere he'd always have a smile and time for a hug. If anyone knows where I can make an online donation, please point the way.
Just watched the Criterion blu-ray of " Pierrot Le Fou" last evening. Splendid! Lovin' me some French New Wave. Next up: "Last Year At Marienbad."
A noble effort, Chris. I'd give you at least a silver. Not your fault the American judge was distracted by Phelps.
I saw some of the team archery and thought it was awesome. My only complaint about the coverage of it (in addition to how it wasn't all archery, all the time) was that you could see the archer and the target but didn't get a sense of just how far away they were from each other. Movies have spoiled me into thinking that I get to see the flight. I'm no fletcher, but for my money the flight is the best stage in the life cycle of the arrow.
