  1. http://deadspin.com/rockies-reliever-adam-ottavino-really-crapped-it-up-yes-1796417951 Yup.
  2. It's my understanding that Yedlin and Pulisic weren't going to be named for call-up. They are on rest then return to their clubs for training. http://www.cbssports.com/soccer/news/usa-will-likely-be-without-pulisic-and-many-other-key-players-for-the-gold-cup/ Glad to see Bill Hamid made the cut.
  3. This game tho. MC made me turn it off in the second inning and we watched the CFL (like you do) until I saw on Twitter that Bellinger brought our heroes to within one run. And then so much holy shit and a inconsistent umpire. FIVE RUNS on FOUR WILD PITCHES and the Rockies never made a move to pull Ottavino out until after Bellinger hit another homer in the 8th. And then some hot closer on closer action with Kenley's RBI double.
  4. Wild thing, you make my heart sing.
  5. I'm only part-way through, but this is impactful. I could have written some of this myself. Anyone reading/read this?
  6. I've never heard of Rodan + Fields but Arbonne and Isagenix are two that I've encountered through social media. Thankfully no one has pitched anything to me directly beyond FB group invites ignore. It's the adult version of wrapping paper and magazine subscriptions except instead of sponsoring Mrs. Smiley's third grade class, you're trying to sponsor your resort vacation or pay off your car. In all cases it involves hitting up family and friends first, which is the worst part to me. I know someone who has three or four of these 'side' projects on the go and it all seems exhausting, extra money or not. Facebook filters have generally made me unaware though.
  7. for Bonesy. for C&C Bat Factory.
  8. Stupid new thread without locking the old thread. ..I'll re-post here.
  9. Hillary needs to stay out of the public eye and Nancy Pelosi needs to step down/away. So if I understand correctly, it's the old white ladies that are holding the Democratic Party back and not all the old white men.... Someone better get talking to Elizabeth Warren I reckon.
  10. And now this: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-london-40322960 <sigh> Hoping for no fatalities.
  11. Just watched Mexico draw with Portugal in stoppage time. Does anyone care about Confederations Cup?
  12. Had he committed his crime in Oregon, he wouldn't be a student-athlete at OSU. He'd be in prison. http://www.oregonlive.com/sports/oregonian/john_canzano/index.ssf/2017/06/clackamas_county_district_atto.html
  13. First pitch in OSU's opening match in the College World Series and not a word about Heimlich. * They acknowledged it top of the second inning, reading a portion of his statement and thankfully without discussion. He went undrafted this week. http://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/19638591/oregon-state-pitcher-luke-heimlich-goes-undrafted And he removed himself from the team and will not participate in the CWS. http://deadspin.com/luke-heimlich-steps-away-from-oregon-state-baseball-tea-1796141971 He's said the words no one else from OSU has to this point in acknowledging his victim, but I also can't help but note it came after he went undrafted. And he intends to play next year on a highly ranked, competitive team that will almost certainly be vying for the CWS again. And he'll still be a child molester. And a team distraction. But then again, most memories are short I suspect. 3-0 Cal State Fullerton, top of the first, 2 outs.
  14. Yup. That's exactly what I said.
  15. In a nation that holds free speech up at all costs, good luck. Talk, while apparently free, is also cheap. You can't legislate feelings but you can regulate words. So either you want this to stop, for things to change, or you continue the thoughts and prayers and stern finger wagging cycle of nothing.
