CANTEEN SPORTS CORNER PRESENTS: GAMES!
CALLING ALL GAMERS!!
HOSTED BY: Tonkin, Ma, and MoJo2001

 

 
Today we kick off our shoes and ready ourselves for some fun. If you love playing or watching games, then today will be fun. If you don't like playing games, then join us for some silliness. Please share your favorite video, card, board, or computer games on the thread. We'd love  to read about it. As always, enjoy yourself. Don't forget to click on the links on the right hand side for our weekly threads and sports links. Also, links will be provided throughout the thread. Thank you!

If you are wondering why we are doing this, please keep in mind the troops around the world that visit us. Sometimes mindless fun for a few minutes can provide that extra release from the often thankless job of defending our freedom. For our troops, their families, and friends; it is important to create a place where they can get a moment of silliness and fun. Well, that's what we are here for. We hope you keep that in mind. Not all games will be to everyone's liking. However, we do feel that we've provided games for everyone to enjoy.

 All the information posted in the thread were found in public domains around the internet. We promise that no computer geeks or hackers were harmed during this searching process. We made sure that no egos were bruised. We also promise to have given Bill Gates top billing in the Top Sellers listing at the bottom. We do not encourage gambling in any form. However, if you do win some money from Powerball or the lottery, please Freepmail us at once. We are probably related. If you play any of these games and you lose, we are not responsible for your lack of gaming capabilities. We apologize for any stress that has been caused having to read this message on the right sidebar. We realize that you'd rather play the games and not have to read another useless word posted over here. With that in mind, we leave you now. Goodbye!


FANTASY SPORTS GAMES ONLINE

Do you like football? If you are ready for football season, why not try your skill as a Coach or manager of your own team. The following links will allow you to set up your own teams and leagues. So? If you have any friends you know you can beat, definitely invite them to join you! Oh! You can pay for some leagues, but we are just interested in the FREE games. Don't forget to read the rules. You will also need to register in order to begin playing. If you don't want email to your account, set up a yahoo or hotmail account for free.  Using these games for gambling purposes is prohibited. Also, all games we searched for are free. Prizes are given out, but no purchase is necessary to play. (Why pay to play games that are offered for free?)



Sporting New's Basica Fantasy Football (Free)Sporting New's Fantasy College Football (Free)
*Sporting News has two free Fantasy Football Leagues one for the NFL and the other for NCAA football. The basic premise of this game is the player (that's you!) is given 35 million dollars. You then create your ultimate team. Each week, depending upon the players performance from the week before, they will either increase or decrease in value. Don't forget that you start with 35 million dollars and you want to have an increase each week with the players available on your roster.  (Don't forget to click on the footballs to transport to their site!)



Pigskin Pick'em (Free---Not Started Yet! Sign Ups begin soon!)ESPN's Gridiron Challenge (Free--Sign Ups Begin August 20th)ESPN's College Pick'em (Free--Sign Ups Begin in August)
*ESPN.com offers their free Fantasy Pro and College games. These games are usually very fun. There's not too much stress with these games. You basically just pick the teams each week that you believe is going to win. One of the college games deals with the point spread. Will the team win by the spread or lose by it. It's not very complicated. (Don't forget to click on the footballs to transport!)



Yahoo's Free Fantasy Football Game

*Yahoo's Fantasy Football League is for all of those fans that love to participate in a Live NFL Draft. You first begin by ranking the players that you really like. After you've set up or joined a league, an actual Draft date will be set. After the Draft has taken place, you can begin looking at your team. You will be able to do trades and act like a general manager and coach. What a wonderful way to play the game without the drama or egos. Enjoy this game. Sign Ups are still available now. (Don't forget to click on the football to transport!)



These are just a few of the Free Fantasy Football games. We are sure there are others out there, but they are hard to come by these days. When Fantasy Football games first began online, they were virtually all free. However, the popularity of these games has created a need (in the opinions of the website gurus) for more interactive and paid services. Which is fine, but we remain cheapskates and free is good for us.

Support Fisher House
The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need by providing homes close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.

There are currently 31 houses located on the grounds of every major military medical center and several VA medical centers. These houses will play a critical role in caring for casualties from Operation Iraqi Freedom. Donations will be used to help meet the cost of lodging for a family whose loved one was injured in Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom. There is a limit to the number of families who can stay in a Fisher House and program is committed to help provide lodging for families who must find commercial lodging, because the Fisher House is full.

Warm up exercise for today . . . . .

Two skiers sitting at the Ski Lodge Bar talking, one is dyslexic
"I've just zag-zigged down that slope."
"No, you have zig-zagged."
"Are you sure?"
An argument takes place
"Okay, to settle this I'll ask that bloke over there."
"Excuse me can you settle an argument, Do you zag-zig or do you zig-zag?"
"Sorry I can't help you I'm a tobogganist."
"That's handy, I'll have twenty Benson and Hedges then!"

..."The average American makes 3.4 trips to the grocery store each week"...

LMBO!!!!! Is it OK to ask questions in school? How do you make .4 of a trip? (I have started out for the grocery store a few times and never made it - does that count?)

Good morning Linda! I know that you're busy, but I hope that your day goes by fast. Thanks for everything you do to support the Canteen.

Here is today's hopefully-not-as-feeble-as-tomkow's attempt at humor:

An Englishman, Frenchman, Mexican, and Texan were flying across country on a small plane when the pilot comes on the loud speaker and says " We're having mechanical problems and the only way we can make it to the next airport is for 3 of you to open the door and jump, at least one of you can survive"

The four open the door and look out below. The Englishman takes a deep breath and hollers "God Save The Queen" and jumps.

The Frenchman gets really inspired and hollers "Viva La France" and he also jumps.

This really pumps up the Texan so he hollers "Remember the Alamo" and he grabs the Mexican and throws him out of the plane.

Today's FEEBLE attempt at humor:

 Two Northern blondes were driving through Louisiana.  As they approached
the town of Natchitoches, they started arguing
about the pronunciation of the name.  They continued to argue until they
stopped for lunch.

As they stood at the counter, one blonde asked the manager: "Before we
order can you please settle an argument for us?  Would you pronounce the
name of where we are?"

The manager leaned over the counter and said:
BURRRRRRRR-GERRRRRRR-KIIIIIIING

..."I'm not quite ready for bed"...

At 3:02am, I don't know if I should wish you a good morning or tell you good night and hope that you get to sleep soon! Either way, I wish all the best for you and yours!

Good morning you two. Have a great day. Here is my FEEBLE ATTEMPT AT HUMOR

George, a guy on the local beach just couldn't make it with any of the girls so he heads over to the lifeguard tower to see if the lifeguard has any advice for him.

"Dude, it's obvious," says the lifeguard, "you're wearing them baggy old swimming trunks that make you look like an old geezer. They're years outta style. Your best bet is to grab yourself a pair of Spandex Speedos about two sizes too small - and drop a fist-sized potato down inside 'em. I'm tellin you man...you'll have all the babes you want!"

The following weekend, George hits the beach with his spanking new tight Speedos, and his fist-sized potato and for cryin' out loud! - it's worse than before! Everybody on the beach acts disgusted as he walks by, covering their faces, turning away, laughing, looking sick! So George goes back to the lifeguard again and asks him, "What's wrong now?"

"Jeez!--George," says the lifeguard, "The potato goes in front!"
