Re: What's left of the 2017 baseball season

What is in that article could kill baseball for me. Please don't let it happen. I don't see how that's much worse than the mess we have now. If you had told me 50 years ago that one day AL and NL teams would play each other during the season and that 8 teams would be involved in 3 rounds of post-se...

Re: Random Thoughts

When filmmaker Roman Polanski was arrested Saturday in Switzerland, he was on his way to accept an award for Lifetime Achievement at the Zurich Film Festival. Polanski's friend, Swiss filmmaker Otto Weisser, was among the first to publicly run to his defense. "This is for me a shock. I am asha...

Re: Random Thoughts

Long long gone. I foresee increasing cultural division in this country over the years to come and a continually fractured media catering to separate groups. The days when practically the entire country either got their news from Walter Cronkite or Huntley&Brinkley are not coming back.

Re: Michigan Pre-game...

They're college students. Basically, children with hormones, access to adult beverages and a thimble's worth of common sense. Not a great combo. I rarely got a good night's sleep when my sons were away at college. Fortunately, anything bad that may have happened wasn't so bad that I had to get invol...

Re: 2017 NFL Football Season

In the first place, it was overblown. It was a meaningless game between two teams that aren't going to win the SB, The Patriots aren't because their pass defense is wretched. And the Jets aren't because they're the Jets. In the second place, because I don't care, I'm perfectly willing to stipulate i...

Re: Michigan Pre-game...

Re: 2017 NFL Football Season

The POTUS is a safe bet, Or maybe Jerry Jones. The many who was not having it would be OK with that.

Re: 2017 NFL Football Season

I don't think it was you. I think it was Al Michaels' joke regarding Harvey Weinstein that pushed the Giants over the top. "Things got a bit awkward, and many on social media was not having it." Many was not having it. That's not a guy blogging from his mom's basement. That's the LA Friggi...
