Can I have your MGB?


Can I have the place in Tempe? I'll carry a pic of you in the MG in the Tucson All Souls Parade so your efforts to restore that baby are never forgotten

I can't see how this doesn't end with the Mets turning into perennial World Series winners. :roll:

Re: Sparty Thread

We've got a young team. They will get better. But that's the type of loss that trustees remember for a long time. I'd say the concern is - last three years when you've had talent on par with you conference / division upper tier (MSU / UM /OSU) the team is sitting at 3-5 right now (with trip to UM r...

Re: 2018 NFL Season

Was watching Giants game and commented to an NYG fan friend that the Giants would be a winning team if they had Dak Prescott - not that Prescott is a top flight QB but his mobility would help offset the issues with the OL and his ability to run would take someone out of coverage and free room for Ba...

Re: Sparty Thread

Offensively PSU lost 3 impact players (Barkley, Hamilton, Gesicki) who all have top spots for their positions in the PSU record books - and you're seeing that - on a throw to TE in end zone Gesicki high points and catches it. The offense doesn't have a go to receiver like Hamilton to help sustain po...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

and that occurs when Chris Davis cashes in about $65MM over three years to hit .200 and strike out 600 times, dude, in your dreams did Chris Davis hit .200 last year. He hit .168, which is well below .200. He's hit about .200 over a 3 year span - you can write off a bad year but if you look over a ...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I've decided it's easier to be a front runner when it comes to pro sports fandom. I will no longer be shackled to a decision I made when I was 7 and listening to Mel Allen glowingly report on the wonderous play of Brooks, Frank, Jim, Boog, Paul et .al. I enjoyed the Ripken years.
