Welcome to the 12th installment of Love it ? or Hate it ?..as usual we take a subject and tell you whether we love it or hate it..feel free to throw in your 2-cents.

The panel this week consists of Harry Callahan, i B4 e, It's All Mine!, Curly Lambeau, PackBrew42, also a slap on the back and a welcome back to our Pier-11 brother Josh and finally our special guest and the lady that gave me the idea for the name of this blog...LoveItHateIt.

We are going to try something new with everyone..we are going to have a word of the day for this blog.

So what you need to do is incorporate this word into every one of your comments...get the idea ?

So try it out..humor us.

The word of the day is (CLEARLY)

Have fun..life is too short.

-------------------------------------------

The first subject is Fox NFL Sunday analyst Terry Bradshaw.

--------------------------------

LoveItHateIt: Love him

He's not afraid to make fun of himself and his many divorces. I honestly believe he found religion because he really needed someone to forgive him for making so many marital mistakes.

----------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

 

He's goofy, he's aloof, and he's perfect. I love the Fox pregame show. It would not be the same without him. Clearly Bradshaw is the key cog in the pregame show.

---------------------------------------

Harry: Love him.

You gotta love Terry..the guy is never down..just always having a good time. He can get the whole panel busting up laughing at a moments notice.

I love when he says something a little off kilter and they pan to Howie Long and he is shuffling papers and trying to keep a straight face and trying not to bust up laughing.

You think sitting around hearing football stories of bygone days with this guy wouldn't be cool...think again.

---------------------------------

It's All Mine!: Love him.

 

I like his easy-going approach to being on the TV. He seems to be enjoying himself, all relaxed and having fun. Sometimes he gets on my nerves because his laughter is a bit too loud and long.

But that just lends to his exuberant persona. I am inclined to think that this has always been his aura, especially when he was on the ball field. Playing, I mean. Football. American football. He was a quarterback.

----------------------------------

Josh: Hate him.

 

Wait a second...how does this FanNation thing work? You mean I type in here and people can read it? Wow...check 1, 2, 3...so this thing is on? Wow...it's been so long...hey, I still remember how to type!!

Sorry, what was the question? Oh, right, Bradshaw...

Can't stand the guy. It's mostly a voice thing. I don't mind that he's a goofball, and some of his points ring true...but his voice...just drives me up the wall. I can watch him...but I never enjoy watching him.

-------------------------- 

Curly Lambeau: Hate him.

  

Terry Bradshaw, eh? I'll go hate 'im. Sorry, Terry, but your antics and hijinx just look contrived. You're like one of those morning drive-time DJs that just constantly laughs like an ijut. Jokey jokey, pukey pukey.

-----------------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

 

Terry Bradshaw - Hate him. He tries to be funny/cute/clever/(fill in own positive word here) but he isn't. Remember that horrendous moment where he was singing with Paul McCartney?

He has his moments, but the entire FOX crew sucks...from my statement you can probably guess what I'll have to say about Howie.

-------------------------------- 

The second subject is Gene Simmons.

-----------------------------------

It's All Mine!: Hate him.

 

I was an avid fan of KISS in the late '70's, but mostly because everybody else was, too. But if I had kids, and I don't (that I've been told about), I wouldn't want them idolizing those freak-weirdos.

His role in "Runaway" was done well, and I was impressed. But he didn't really surface again until this show he has now. My first reaction? "Ah, crap! Not ANOTHER one!" Enough, already!

-------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate him.

 

He was funny on that Miller Lite commercial, but the dude is such a warped psycho that "Hate 'im" is the only clear choice. Hearing him and his wife talk about their "open-ness" in their sex life....eew!

...plus, he tries to pass himself off as intelligent and thoughtful. Sorry, dude, but doing an interview in Playboy does not gain you entry into the ivory tower.

----------------------------------

i B4 e: Hate him.

I used to love him when KISS was my favorite band growing up. Not so much anymore. He clearly needs to put his makeup back on.

------------------------

Harry: Hate him.

This show is a comlete rip-off of " The Osbourne's" and makes that show look brilliant. I think he is about as interesting as a bowl of mud. " I.. wanna rock and roll all night and party every day" yeah right old man..but your in bed by 9.

He looks like a stock..psycho villain for a Bruce Willis movie.

He has said that he has bedded over 5000 women.

Gene's wife Shannon or # 5001: " Well how do i rate ?

Gene: " Well there was this redhead that i liked to call # 3264 "...(Slap !!...smash !!...crash !!)

----------------------------

Josh: Hate him.

The dude just seriously creeps me out. Plus, he acts like he's some sort of god...and um...a big tongue does not make you a god.

He's one of those washed up celebs that is clinging to his importance by doing a horrible reality TV show...you want a sign that you're not relevant anymore? Are you an aging rocker, actor, entertainer, wrestler and you have a show where you let cameras into your home for some lame Cable channel?

Yeah, Ozzy already did it...the rest of you are just unoriginal wannabes.

--------------------------------

LoveItHateIt: Hate him.

He's a very, very strange man. Although one FN user did liken my tongue as Gene Simmons esque... I guess I took that as a compliment.

-----------------------------

PackBrew42: Hate him.

Hate him...and his music. Being one of the younger Pier 11 guys, his music is outside my time & taste (well moreso taste than time).

Probably more famous for his tongue & # of women bedded but beyond that he's dull and his show sucks (though I make that claim w/o having seen it).

Even Ozzie's show was more entertaining....SHHAAAAARRRROOOONNNN!!!!

------------------------------------------- 

The third subject is Fox NFL Sunday analyst Howie Long.

-----------------------------------------

Harry: Love him.

Howie and Terry bounce comments off each other like the old pros they are..they make everyone else look better.

This is clearly their show..everyone else is just along for the ride.

---------------------

It's All Mine: Love him.

 

Actually, I couldn't give a rat's arse about him, but I'm not allowed to say that.

To say that I hate him would have been too far from the truth, so I said "Love him" with a period instead of an exclamation point.

I, uh, like the way he talks about...stuff. Okay, really, he was a one-man wrecking machine on the field, and fun to watch.

-----------------

i B4 e: Love him.


He's goofy, he's aloof, and he's perfect. I love the Fox pregame show. It would not be the same without him. Clearly Howie is the key cog in the pregame show.

------------------------ 

Josh: Love him.

All you need to do is see the movie Firestorm to know why Howie is one of the true legends of Football Broadcasting. Seriously, go rent it, and then get back to me. Sure, I'll wait....

On top of his stellar acting career, he is the only person on Fox that doesn't have a "schtick". Jimmy and Terry have to be all over the top...Howie is just Howie. And on top of that, he makes the most sense of all of them.

Oh, you couldn't find a copy of Firestorm? Crap...I'll send you one...trust me it's worth the wait.

--------------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate him.

 

Howie....this's is a tough one. I said hate 'im for Terry, so I suppose I should be consistent and hate Howie too. He is, after all, just the yin to Terry's yang.

[Hey, leave Terry's yang out of this!]

Who said that? ...okay, anyway, yeah...gotta' go with hate 'im. I don't really hate 'im, but rules are rules. Sorry Terry and Howie. I really am. Hopefully they'll be able to live with my hatred. ...I'm sure those piles of money that they get from Fox will help ease the pain.

---------------------------

LoveItHateIt: Love him.

He's one of my favorite Raiders and I love him on FOX's pregame show. He was also very humble when it came to his son being drafted. His banter with Terry and Jimmy crack me up each Sunday morning!

------------------------

Packbrew42: Hate him.

Really the only guy on FOX's football crew that has any real insight or original thoughts is Jimmy. Should be interesting if his kid is more successful (on the field) than he.

---------------------------- 

The fourth subject is Morgan Freeman.

-----------------------------------

Josh: Love him.

My one issue with Morgan, he takes EVERY role that comes his way. For every "Glory" he's in a "Chain Reaction"...for every "Shawshank" he's in "Hard Rain". But I forgive the guy, cause he's great in everyone of them.

Some actors are in a lot of crappy movies, but seriously mail in the performance...John Malcovich comes to mind...but Morgan seems to always bring it. Plus, he's one of those movie stars that I would love to just have a beer with. Just kick back with a beer, and talk about whatever comes to mind...he just seems like someone I'd enjoy hanging with.

------------------------------------

i B4 e: Love him.

How can you not love the Easy Reader? He is one of my favorite actors, I love his movies. He was perfect in Shawshank Redemption. Clearly he is a top notch actor and has come a long way since The Electric Company.

----------------------

It's All Mine!: Love him.

 

I have always liked this guy. What I especially like is his name: "Free-Man". That's like a statement right there. There's something about his acting that is unique, and his "accent", if you can call it that, is hard to place...sort of aristocratic. Plus, he makes a MUCH better God than George Burns. And I don't care if you disagree.

-----------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Love him.

 

Love 'im! Is there anybody who doesn't love Morgan Freeman.

"I hope I make it across the border. I hope to see my friend again and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific Ocean is as blue as it has been in my dreams. ...I hope!"

Chills, baby. ...chills.

-------------------------

 Harry: Love him.

The first thing i saw him in was "That was then..this is now" as Charlie the bartender who befriended Emilio Estevez and his buddy...he was great.

He is one of the best actors to ever grace the screen. He not only acts in some movies he does the narrating in them also..pay the dude double for that will you.

His narration of Shawshank will send chills up your spine. I just saw " The Bucket List" and he was the narrator and star in that also..good flick..he slayed in that.

-----------------

LoveItHateIt: Love him.

Shawshank Redemption is my favorite movie and he is just a great actor when he gets the right script. He played God well in Bruce Almights - and how many actors can claim that?

----------------

PackBrew42: Love him.


Morgan Freeman - Love him...basically the reason why can be found here on Youtube...here's a handy link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2BzLf2jwIM

You either get busy talking or you get busy dying.

-------------------------------------

The fifth subject is skiing...snow and water.

------------------------------

i B4 e: Love it.

Love them both
I love skiing, even though I wish I were better at it. I'm not the best skier, but that doesn't stop me from making a fool of myself. The funniest sight you will ever see is, clearly, a Texan trying to snow ski.

------------------------

It's All Mine!: Love it.

 

Though I don't do it as much as I used to, I'm an expert telemark skier. That's downhill shushing on cross-country bindings and skis.

Telemarking is more difficult to master than Alpine skiing, and it freaking BLASTS your thighs. I used to live and work in a place that you could only reach by snowcoach or snowmobile, and the employees' mode of transport to and from work is on X-C skis.

I've also done alot of backcountry skiing, sometimes winter camping. Now that I'm in the *^&$# age range, I don't do it as much as I used to...kind of hard on the knees, you see...

----------------

Harry: Love it.

My days in Florida were either spent at the beach or on a lake water-skiing and tubing. I had a blast and also took a thousand spills that i will someday pay for.

I haven't been around much snow since i was a teen so snow-skiing would probably result in multiple broken bones.

------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate it.

 

I thought I'd love it, I honestly did. But then life showed me "whassup!?" The thing they don't tell you about ski slopes when they're giving you the lessons is that the mountain gets really, really packed down hard at the end of the day.

[ heheh....packed down hard...heheheh]

Alright, who's SAYING that?? ...anyway, my head bounced off that ice sooo hard that I had to take a few moments to collect myself...and then I had to take a few moments to collect all my crap that flew off and kept going down the slope. ...fun! Yay! My ski boot actually broke, I fell so hard. ...thank you, no.

Water skiing is a little better, but the first time I fell there, I forgot to let go of the rope. ...not a good thing to do. I think a fish actually passed through my mouth and out my.... well, let's just leave it at that.

-----------------------------

LoveItHateIt: Hate it.

If you're not good at something its best to hang it up rather than break your bones trying. Yeah, I'm best on land baby. Dry snowless land.

------------------------

Josh: Hate it.

I'm from Illinois...there are no mountains, and there isn't a ton of water. Plus, my family didn't have the income to own a boat or afford lift tickets. So no, I've never even done either type of skiing. Never really appealed to me...

Go really fast down this mountain, and try not to hit anything or anyone. Yeah, no thanks, I'll be in the lodge with a beer.

Hold onto this rope, and try to stay up while this boat tows you around the lake as fast as possible, if you fall over, go limp. Yeah, no thanks, I'll be floating in this inner tube with a beer.

------------------------------------

PackBrew42: Love it.

Have done all 3 for pretty much all my life (water, downhill, and x-country). Grew up on lakes for all my life and skiing & swimming became 2nd nature.

Living in Wisconsin got me naturally acclimated to the winter skiing too. Nothing beats flying down a hill at 40-60 mph. Plus water skiing you get to see all the ladies in their pretty bikinis =)

----------------------------

And for the sixth and final subject we turn to is Budweiser beer.

 

------------------------------------

Curly Lambeau: Hate it.

 

Budweiser...gag me. Miller Lite is clearly less-filling.

----------------

Harry: Love it.

This was the first beer to my liking..i could drink some of these ice-cold and not give it a second thought..these are still the commanders of American beer. My usual choice is Heineken..but on a hot day after mowing the lawn..sure toss me a cold Bud.

---------------------

It's All Mine!: Hate it.

 

The beer I drink more than any other is anything but Budweiser (well, ALMOST anything but). I don't care for it, and often give Bud drinkers a rash of stuff. In a good-natured way, of course.

Though I don't care for it, I do like this:

Because
U
Deserve
What
Every
Individual
Should
Enjoy
Regularly

------------------------------

i B4 e: Hate it.

Bud......weis.......er: Hate it
I would rather drink frog pee than drink this swill. The best part of Budweiser are the commercials. They clearly lead the other beers in the funniest commercial department, but not in taste.

----------------------------

Josh: Hate it.

Pissweiser: Hate it

Okay, a few things...

If beer is clear enough that you can read the paper through it, it's not worth drinking.

If you argue about which is better...Bud, Bud light, Coors, Coors light, Miller or Miller Lite...you're an idiot...they all taste the same.

If you consider yourself a beer drinker, and all you've ever had in your life is Bud? Well, My god have mercy on your soul.

If you're looking to bring some beer over to my place...Fat Tire would be a good choice...or there is always Guinness...or hell, there are some many good beers out there, suprise me. But if you bring Bud with you, you're leaving with it.

---------------------

LoveItHateIt: Hate it.

I mean is it anything other than water with a little carbonation and Yellow #5?

--------------------------------------- 

PackBrew42: Hate it.

This Bud's for you, because I won't drink it. Hey Curly, Miller Lite is better because it TASTES GREAT! No LESS FILLING! TASTES GREAT!!!

Oh, sorry, alter ego getting into a less filling/tastes great shouting match. Either way, Bud = the suck.

---------------------------

Well that's it folks..we hope you liked it..if not..as always..we could give a crap.
