Re: 2018 Baseball Season

Wouldn't it make sense to have Baltimore and KC play at a minor league park? It's a good thing - the only thing I can see ever ruining it is adults or ESPN over pimping it. I like Adam Jones - he's been a solid player over his time in Baltimore - but I don't get wanting to hang out in a dumpster fir...

Re: College Sports Scandals

The check writing part is a given - it's a University after all.

I'd say it means some of the staff will be getting fired and getting thrown under the bus but I would highly doubt any of those people agreed to allow ass covering school administrators to speak on their behalf in a legal sense.

Re: Politics

If you want to engender sympathy for your GoFundMe page mention being a Mets fan, commuting into NYC in a work uniform (yes a suit is a work uniform) not suitable for weather conditions and never ending battles with Russian hackers.

Re: App State Pregame Thread

I think App State is the kind of team that would have extended an end of Paterno era team well into the 2nd half by exploiting quickness advantages and adding wrinkles and basically outcoaching a PSU team that would just come in and try and straight outmuscle them. PSU would win but not as easily as...

Re: College Sports Scandals

Getting fired will be the least of Durkin's, the Strength coach and UM's medical staff's problems. Having a kid die due to lack of proper medical attention during a practice because you were trying to toughen him up will at minimum land you in civil court and quite possibly criminal court for neglig...

In the era of 3 divisions, the closest was the 2003 Tigers who finished 47 games behind. Season's not over yet so the O's may top that.


Not if they keep playing the Mets

Re: Politics

Donald Trump swings at pitches being thrown by someone in the bullpen. I understand his need for feeling he needs to counter an openly hostile media and mainstream political body (notice how little attention Strzok's firing for bias received - you remember the guy who helped tank the HRC investigati...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Your beat cop is no longer policing every crime in the city - like in Prohibition era - you now have agencies like the ICE, DEA, ATF dealing with the more dangerous situations. Police are also better equipped in terms of things like body armor and training. Advance in medical treatment impact those...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

_dad mentioned watching Cops. I watch LivePD on the occasional Friday or Saturday evening when there is nothing better to watch. For the most part, this accounts for my run ins with law enforcement (aside from the occasional voice mail that police are coming to get me if I don't pay some fine). Whi...
