  1. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    Rotoworld is reporting Trent Richardson has been arrested for domestic violence. He only peripherally qualifies for an NFL thread, but I think someone at Rotoworld needs to work on sensitivity in headlines.. http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/354581/trent-richardson-popped-for-domestic-violence?ls=roto:FA:topheadlines

    Five extra years of molesting livestock is not an achievement most people would go out of their way to bring up.
  3. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    I would factor in the Belichick factor with Jimmy G. Bill does a great job of hiding flaws. But those flaws become apparent after time or without Bill. I wouldn't give Garappolo any more money than I'd give a young Matt Cassel.

    It only takes one sucker, but, wow, I'd think that Jimmy G looks like the next Osweiler in the eyes of anyone paying attention.

    I live in the same area and when I find Pats gear I find it almost invariably associated with refugees from New England states. California attracts a lot of snow-haters, but they maintain that link.
  6. RIP Richard Hatch - Galactica

    Multiple reports indicate that Richard Hatch has succumbed to pancreatic cancer. A fixture at ComicCon, he was incredibly passionate and a terribly underrated actor. He will be missed. So say we all.
  7. Westeros Fantasy Baseball 2017

    Not hip to holds. It is a stat that rewards quantity over quality.
  8. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    The rest of the league is definitely catching up to the Patriots. The Falcons managed to keep them from hacking their coaches headsets for three quarters.
  9. College Basketball - Year of the Blue Bloods?

    Attended the double-overtime game last night, Cal hosting Utah. Utah has been a scoring machine and Cal mostly shut them down (55 in regulation). But Cal doesn't really have a go to inside scorer and their 3 point game is clumsy. Note: seeing Golden State play on a regular basis may have ruined my eye for college offenses. The Warriors play such a pretty passing game that everything else looks high-school after watching them.
  10. NFL: The Politics of Superb Owls or Trumping the Fail-Cons

    When I went to look at the spread, I expected to see NE -9. It is only -3. Some money may be going on that.

    I'd rather live in a world where people express their deepest feelings through spontaneous bits of improvised song and dance than one in which wahoos drive cars fastly and furiously with limited consequences and via improbable leaps and explosions that seldom harm bystanders.

    Thanks for informing me that La La Land wasn't out in the UK until just now. That makes sense. I do not get the whole "people don't spontaneously break out in song" bit though. Movies are all about the impossible and the unlikely. Giant monsters don't really stomp Tokyo. Jedi Knights do not. Do is not really an option for them, since they don't exist. Drew Barrymore isn't going to give Adam Sandler a first date once, let alone fifty times. And yes, as I have demonstrated several times over the year, people look at you funny when you start to sing "Oklahoma" for no apparent reason.
  13. Year in Movies: 2016 edition

    I am surprised at the extent to which the film fans here all seem to have avoided La La Land. I think it terribly worth seeing and I went out of my way mostly because I want to see the key nominated films.
  14. There was a time when both the Atlanta Falcons AND the Atlanta Braves were in western divisions. It was like alternate geography.
  15. Belichick is being an asshole. He enjoys being an asshole. His fans love him when he's an asshole. That is who he is.
