Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Two hours plus bum-shaking. That's the future.

I can't believe that's not the present. I'm suddenly interested in going to a 76ers game.

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Btw, I googled participation rates for football. And, as I suspected, they are dropping. . Baseball, on the other hand, is seeing an increase in participation. In fact, if you google "baseball participation rates" you'll find a few articles citing studies that show baseball is showing an i...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Sorry, I am still sitting here stunned at the suggestion that baseball is doomed because Harper and Machado look unlikely to get $400M. Ignoring for the moment that Harper already has an offer of $300M (and, if you believe some of the reports the Nationals upped that to $330M) and Machado has an off...

If you are tired of The Apprentice, you can always change the channel and instead watch The Rudy Guiliani Comedy Hour.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

PS - That commercial already has 17M views on Youtube. Someone at Gillette is either an idiot or a genius. That was my original point. They didn't do this obvious to the probability it was going to have some kind reaction. It may backfire on them, although I don't know exactly what their goals were...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Well, I better straighten up and fly right, then.

Seriously, I don't take it as it's aimed at me. And, I don't care about it. I really don't. It's amazing to me what people get upset about vs. what they are willing to defend.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Do you really feel consdescended to from that ad? I thought it was stupid but I never thought it applied to me and I didn't give it a whole lot of thought. My razor is a braun. I bought a braun because that was what was on the shelf when i went to buy it that fit my requirements. If I had a gilete, ...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

Rumors abound that Harper is closer to a deal with the Phillies. Machado supposedly close to a deal with the White Sox for $175M. Not clear on years - or even if it's true.

And, Wilmer Flores signed a 1 year deal with the Diamondbacks with a club option for a 2nd year.

Re: Politics

The Democrats proposed pretty much that and many Republicans were willing to sign on to that. Trump said "screw that" and said he would not approve anything that opens up any portion of the government until he gets his wall. And then the White House ordered furloughed IRS workers to come b...
