I have a similar dilemma. I have my J-Spouts displayed in one place on the walls. I have my olive drab cones displayed in a different place. So where do the olive drab J Spouts go? Matt
Guess you will need to get two of each OD J Spouts... :smile:

Re: Iron City - Washington's Winter Headquarters.

I only have the pictured five. From BMV search, these were announced in BCCA mag November 1974. This was just before BCCA started including photos of the new cans. Also, as the article mentions, six will be produced, with several cans coming later. Maybe Washington Headquarters never got produced? ....

Well Michigan State has certainly made things interesting! So many Duke winners now are "pink with line drawn through", and RB standings adjusted. I have included the top 10 as usual, but also #24 and #29 that have Michigan State winning it all. I have not done the math, but they might be making a b...

Some good basketball Saturday. My opinion Auburn was the best team remaining until Okeke injury late. Hope nowhere near as bad as it looked.

Round 2 in the books. While it would have destroyed both my brackets, I was pulling for Iowa to knock off Tennessee, and especially UCF to take down Duke. Both had real chances for memorable upsets, but overall Round 2 ended up being higher seed taking care of business. Should be some good games thi...

Re: 2019 NCAA Tournament Challenge

Definitely some exciting basketball with first round in the books, and enough upsets and close games to make exciting. The Big Ten showed why they deserved 8 spots, going an impressive 7-1. As for the RB brackets, not a bad way to enter round two this weekend:
