Let's get right into it, shall we?

As usual, bring your own drinks, no conversations about Super Tramp's long-lost bass player, and if you haven't donated before, money is accepted in the form of a donation.

1. Stanley Cup vs. World Cup, which is the cooler trophy?

2. Maurkice Pouncey is 24 years old, and last year was probably his first in the NFL in which he was older than the majority of the Steelers' rookies. Since he was given a big extension on top of his rookie deal, what, in terms of success should be expected of him? If the Steelers rush for 2,000 yards or more this season, what percentage of that would you attribute to the return of a healthy Pouncey?

3. What movie are you watching right now? I need suggestions.

4. If you were a bartender and Mike Wallace, Yancey Thigpen and Nate Washington sat down, which one would you serve first and why?

5. Will Howard Jones be a name BTSC writes about in July as a camp cut, in September as a game-day activation or in November as a spot-starter/regular contributor?
