  1. Eno Sarris tweeted, then deleted that Schilling had been thrown in the clink. Here's the reasoning.
  2. On a board in which many excellent things have been written over the 20 plus years I have been posting here, this is way near the top of my list.
  3. I didn't check here first, I posted Passan's tweet with video in the Stupid Things thread.
  4. Proud graduate of the Marge Schott School of Broadcasting, Thom Brennaman:
  5. The league would rather demonize fun and then tell us that it's Trout's fault he's not a bigger star. Fuck em. Pimp 500 foot shots, and get jazzed about striking out the side to leave em loaded. Did you see that fucking catch Machado made the next night in the RF corner? That is some million to one type shit, and if I was him, I would have cartwheeled back to my position before the next batter. Best part of all of this is Tatis stole 3rd while SD was up 6-0 the next day. The Jomboy breakdown is great, he just bitches and moans about how stupid it is to take your foot off the gas.
  6. Fucking hilarious, and I love love love it. https://www.change.org/p/professional-wrestling-fans-ban-jonathan-moxley-s-use-of-the-paradigm-shift-to-protect-all-elite-wrestling-s-roster?signed=true
  7. Yo, I'm a California resident. I fucking hate politics, and have only in the last couple of years began to pay more mind to them because of how fucked everything has gotten under our current fuckhead-in-chief. I make that point only to say that on my way home from work yesterday when NPR was discussing her nomination was the first time I heard her spoken name, and I instantly felt like an idiot. I just saw it and immediately tied to the only possible pronunciation my brain could link to that name. Fucking pro wres, man. Making us all a little dumber.
  8. Nicole Savoy is a bad fucking dude, and I wish they would have just let her be herself, instead of being "Lil Swole". She's almost a head taller than Monroe, anyway. Also, nice touch on her wearing the VFIII armband for Virgil Flynn. Rache Chanel could be a whole lot of fun with some more work under her belt. Whatever the fuck that character is, she absolutely understands it. I think it's real fucking dumb, but she is working it real well. She throws strikes like she means them, or doesn't understand how to work them. A little bit of fine-tuning could go a long way with her. Maybe she can learn some Euro style matwork, and use the heavy shots as exclamation points.
  9. Super Liger was 1/4/1997, so the arm break in SMW was a little less than 3 years prior. I've heard the story as him practicing the move before Night Of Legends, and I think that it came out of Cornette's mouth, so I don't know if that makes it more believable or less.
  10. I would imagine that the four base error is a pretty rare occurrence, eh? https://www.mlb.com/news/jo-adell-4-base-error-ball-pops-out-of-glove-over-wall
  11. While I don't disagree with that in any way, that is a dumber name than WARHORSE. I'd be interested to hear how it gets called on commentary.
  12. Thank you!! I kept telling myself it was HYDRA, and I knew that was wrong, but couldn't remember any other squiddy organizations.
  13. I can't make out all of his jobstoppers. I can make out a Bat chest logo variant, Wu W, Imperial Crest, Superman shield and what looks like a Starfleet logo? What a fucking nerd. I love it!
  14. I think that is the cheapest I have ever heard of for sale. I need to start checking this thread before I go to bed. All you not in my time zone folks have the jump on me!
  15. My first thought is something terrible, but then I remember that this is Yoenis Cespedes we are talking about, so it is probably a better bet that he decided to ride a horse to Ottawa or something. Either way, I hope it's something dumb and not something serious.
  16. I had been trying to figure out why in a season in which the Dodgers acquired Mookie motherfucking Betts, nothing about the prospect of baseball was exciting. When I turned on the game on Opening Day, I had a moment of clarity and understanding. I just don't give a shit, because I wish that there wasn't a baseball season being played. All the rec-league softball fuckery seems dumb, even though I totally understand the need for the modification of the rules. 7 inning doubleheaders and automatic runners in extras and universal DH and a fucking playoff structure in which more than half of the league is eligible? All real fucking weak, even though all are the right choices for a season like this. There are exactly two things that hold any interest for me this year. Because of the short schedule, will anyone hit .400? And then, how many HBP are HOU going to take this year? Beyond that, baseball seems stupid and the last thing we should be worrying about. I've loved this game longer than I can remember, and never have I been so apathetic to its existence. That's likely just the existential dread talking, I'm sure 2021 will be something I'll get into if we get there.
  17. We can just take him at his own words: He disagrees with the "movement" but I think what he means is that he disagrees with the ideology put forth by at least one of the women that founded the actual BLM organization. And that is perfectly okay. Because fuck that lady and fuck her ideas if you don't agree with her. But "I just can't get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter" doesn't sound like "Fuck that lady and her ideas". It sounds like "I don't think that black lives matter." And that's why I think people are motherfucking him. Also, and this is just my own personal two cents, the whole deal about not being able to talk to anyone about it because it was so late in the day seems like horseshit.
  18. This would have been super bitchin'. Good fucking shout. Also a pretty great idea, but Statlander is out like 8 months or some such shit with an ACL, no?
  19. Yo, did anyone get in on Skater XL now that it is out on console? I think I want to grab it, but I'm not seeing any real substantial reviews, and I prefer to not base my opinion on YouTube playthroughs. I added it to our Gamefly queue, so I'll get my hands on it pretty soon. Just looking for some other opinions. Also, does anyone know if I can reformat a corrupt Memory Card 1019 for the GCN? Mine fell victim to the WiiConnect24 overheating horseshit. I deleted all the files, and go through what is supposed to trigger the format message in the menu, but it doesn't work. Every fucking game I own had a save on that card, except for my Animal Crossing towns. I'm pretty heartbroken about it, especially now that I am finding out bootleggers got hella good at making fakes, so I can't even trust buying used ones. I'm on the hunt for some of the 251 cards now. If anyone has some they want to knock off, we should talk about it and come to an arrangement!
  20. I have been conditioned by the GCN version to go back to my home to quit, because your mailbox was the trigger to save, and if you didn't save, you had to deal with Mr. Resetti running his mouth FORFUCKINGEVER as your punishment the next time you booted up. Every now and again, I remember and just hit minus.
  21. I will love Rojas till the day I die for the play he made to preserve Kershaw's no-no in 2014, but come on man. Heyman need to turn down his hyperbole meter.
  22. You have to post the fucking tweet, man!!! The leader of the Marlins, and many NL categories of offense, Miguel Rojas!!
  23. Uno's line about the concussion protocol was top-flight also. I like that Griff had a purple shirt on. He was trying to blend in!
