Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

The ridiculous thing isn't Rivera got a 100% vote - he was the best at his position ever - it's that the other guys you mentioned didn't get a 100% because some douchebag sportswriter thinks he's got to prove a pointless point. Hopefully now that mentality is gone and guys who deserve that honor get...

Re: 2018 Baseball OffseasonThread

As my last act as an Orioles fan I'll defend Mike Mussina - here are the W-L-ERA-SOs and WHIP of the pitchers being discussed Mussina 270 - 153 - 3.68 - 2813 - 1.19 Halladay 203 - 105 - 3.38 - 2117 - 1.17 Schilling 216 - 146 - 3.46 - 3116 - 1.14 Mussina may not have had the "highlight" gam...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

It's probably a Thorton Melon like thing where his dad donated tons of money to the school - maybe there's some old footage of DT doing a triple lindy in Penn's Natatorium I can't even begin to speculate how AOC got an economics degree from BU. Unless her professor was a hologram of Karl Marx and he...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Could you imagine the amount of alcohol you would need on hand if you developed a drinking game based on watching a DT - AOC debate? You would end up with a BAC you have an ABC. Seriously - all the schools these two attended should have their accreditations reviewed - for DT at minimum for Grammar a...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Don't worry - AOC will set us all straight - if she can take time out from stopping the end of the world as we know it - which according to her will happen in 12 years. I'm kind of think DT and Sarah Palin had a secret love child that has turned rebellious on them - that's the only way I can explain...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'm not sure why this is "mysterious" to you. It's the new reality of contemporary discourse. The" melting pot" paradigm for American society has been replaced by the cult of identity politics. And in this new paradigm, this wasn't a collection of individuals behaving poorly. Th...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I don't think anyone involved in the video deserves a good behavior medal - and least of all the people who put out an edited video to promote their political agenda or the media who time after time fails to vet stories. I also don't think any of the participants in the story needs the be publicly c...

Re: 2019 Recruiting Thread

I wonder if they are picking up credits during the intersessions or summer session that helps them graduate early. If they can enter early and pick up 6-9 credits over several summers that could cut off a semester. I also wonder if the University has upped it's game in terms of academic support for ...

Re: 2019 Recruiting Thread

Danny Dalton transferring to BC and Jarvis Miller to UMass - again I see these as issues of PT. Shane - you following the recruiting pretty closely - how will all these late exits (5 to NFL, 7 potentially to transfer) shake out in terms of roster? Does PSU have an unexpected armful of schollies that...

Re: Politics

I've noticed the federal govt is still collecting taxes from me - I don't see why they can't have a provision that they will operate "as is" during a budget stalemate and just freeze any new capital spending, new hires, non-essential travel. They should continue to employ pay active employ...
