Click to enlarge.. but unfortunately, it isn't gonna be big enough.
Via HERE, and a few other places
It shows the Raiders in Los Angeles, and the Cardinals in Arizona, so this has to have been printed sometime between 1988 & 1994.
I'd love to be able to find a larger resolution than 897 x 594, but unfortunately I haven't been able to so far.

The United Nations Population Fund estimates that on October 31, 2011, the world's population will reach 7 billion. Just 200 years ago, there were only 1 billion people on the planet, and over the next 150 years, that number grew to 3 billion. But in the past 50 years, the global population has more than doubled, and the UN projects that it could possibly grow to 15 billion by the year 2100. As the international organization points out, this increasing rate of change brings with it enormous challenges. Meeting the basic needs of so many will mean growing, shipping, and distributing more food while providing more clean water, health care, and shelter -- all without inflicting too much further damage on our environment.

Much of [this] growth has happened in Asia — in India and China. Those two countries have been among the world's most populous for centuries. But a demographic shift is taking place as the countries have modernized and lowered their fertility rates. Now, the biggest growth is taking place in sub-Saharan Africa.
Due in part to that region's extreme poverty, infant mortality rates are high and access to family planning is low. The result is high birth rates and a booming population of 900 million — a number that could triple by the end of the century. Population expert Joel Cohen points out that, in 1950, there were nearly three times as many Europeans as sub-Saharan Africans. If U.N. estimates are correct, there will be nearly five sub-Saharan Africans for every European by 2100. (Source)

Was it bothering anyone else that the Monday Night Football announcers for the San Diego/Kansas City game kept pronouncing Ryan Succop's name as "Ryan Suck-Up"??
I mean get with the program everyone.. How do you pronounce the name Philip (or Phillip)?
It's " `Fill - ǝp" That's an upside down 'e' and it's called a "schwa". It denotes a neutral pronunciation sound, which is present in thousands of English words, as a part of the NON-STRESSED syllable of 2-syllable words.
Same thing with syrup.
You don't say "Sear Up"... nor do you say "Phil Up." The accents are on the 1st syllables. `Sear-ǝp AND `Phil-ǝp
Everyone try it now..
Thank you. /End rant

We're not doing much this year. OK, we're not doing anything. Actually we went to see Five Finger Death Punch Saturday night, so that can count as our Halloween celebration. I'd post some pics of the concert, but all we had were cell phones. As good as cameras in phones are these days, none of our pictures turned out very good at all. I do have a video, and if I figure out a way to get it from my wife's phone to my computer, I'll upload it.
