Jerry Rice is the best receiver ever, better than Randy Moss, Chris Carter, and even Terrell Owens.

Rice is the best. Period.


Tough call. I beg to differ, friend. It's a close call. I've deliberated alot, and prayed to baby Jesus on the issue. And so it is...

The radio receiver is the greatest receiver in history. It's an electronic circuit that receives it's input from an antenna, uses electronic filters to separate a wanted radio signal from all other signals picked up by this antenna.

It amplifies it to a level suitable for further processing, and finally converts through demodulation and decoding the signal into a usable form for the consumer - such as sound, pictures, digital data, measurement values, and navigational positions.

So says wikipedia.

The world's first radio receiver (thunderstorm register) was designed by Alexander Stepanovich Popov, and it was first seen at the All-Russia exhibition in 1896. He was the first to demonstrate the practical application of electromagnetic radio waves, although he did not care to apply for a patent for his invention.

This is pretty old school. And I'm sure this thing was not only born before Rice, but actually still plays. Pun school. Get it.

How many receptions do you think the receiver radio has made over time?

A much too much.


Sorry but I'm talking about Jerry Rice, the football receiver for the 49ers for most of his career. You might not know him...


Oh contrare, friend. I know exactly who you're talking about. Jerry Rice. Hall of Fame receiver out of the NFL. He likes long walks on the beach and plays ultimate frisbee with old folks to rouse their spirits.

I, of course, am discussing the receiver radio. Reference above and find when it's invented. Keep in mind it's still playing today. Now, if that's not "iron man" type stuff, I don't know what is.

In the context of home audio systems, a receiver often refers to a combination of a tuner, preamplifier, and a power amplifier - ALL ON THE SAME CHASSIS!

Was Jerry Rice ever a Receiver, QB, and RB - on the same team? Never. Combo platter. My receiver gets it done.

Now, the first integrated stereo receiver was made by Harman Kardon company, and came into the market in 1958. So not only has it been playing longer and stronger than Rice, it was also racially unbiased and open to all - a la integration in 1958. Long before some other people came up with the idea. It's history is fair.

Later, I could get into high-fidelity systems. Lots of pride in this receiver.


Forfeited Turn


My prowess is unmatched.

You can't argue with prowess.

Backwards, it's spelled sseworp. Pronounce Sew-worp. Sip on that.

Giggity.
