Actually, I suspect that the game pieces this year are going to be 10 pound cubes of ice.

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

It seems he is talking about the pool/group of possible companies to choose to film the Kickoff. That's also why Kickoff "might look different this year." However, it is interesting that he would be hinting to us if he told us who it is. It seems that this is just keeping the company secret for general reasons, but maybe he means more and is talking about the game? There seems to be no way to know.... as always....

Hmm. Wouldn't it be awesome if they managed to involve Cirque Du Soleil with this? Kickoff would look mighty interesting.

"Ideas" is one of several words that get an extra syllable, when used by those of a certain geographic persuasion.

In my own hometown, the word for a small metallic disc used as legal tender is usually pronounced "Cohen".

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Well,
there seems to be a good argument for 2 or 3 syllables when using ideas.

How about:

pooling thoughts drain brains
watered down predictions bloat
confusion results

--
Kara, I did some research and there are conflicting decisions regarding how many syllables are in idea. I'll check my trusty dusty dictionary that actually has pages in it tomorrow. Interesting, isn't it?

Re: Is It a Hint or Not?

What would be the cat's whiskers would be to make a simple but polite request for a game hint using cryptic (and PG rated) images for making such a request.
