Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

Who is the "Barry Sims" Brenneman keeps referring to. Some amalgam of a couple of former Lions? :shock:

Re: Politics & Current Events

I liked Franken, too. But he has to step down. What he did was wrong. That he wasn’t a sitting senator at the time does not matter. Question; has anyone accused of such an assault only did it one time? Seems like every guy has multiple accusers. What are the chances more women will speak out against...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Nope. https://www.justice.gov/pardon/frequently-asked-questions-concerning-executive-clemency That doesn't really contradict what we were talking about, which was federal crimes. I was challenging the assertion that a pardon extends to state convictions. It doesn't. Guess I quoted the wrong thing. ...

that is at the very least extremely close to what my dad would be wearing doing the same thing. I'll give him a pass on the jeans, and maybe the boat shoes if those are his old junk around pair.

Re: John Mallee

Basically, "how do get what we're doing so well in the regular season to work in the postseason?" Well, Mallee is, presumably, a key reason why things work so well in the regular season. Why scrap that for the crapshoot of finding someone who who can handle things as well as he does regar...

is it just me, or did it seem like the linking arms in a display of solidarity was just the owners trying to mitigate the damage to their team's image in the eyes of the league and the president?

Re: Is this 1969 All Over Again?

Lost in the discussion about the '69 Cubs is the fact that Mets went on an incredible run to end that season. They were 10 games back of the Cubs and finished 8 ahead by going 38-6 over their last 44 games.

Trump's Presidency is cratering. He's heading to Camp David and has called back Pence early for a national security meeting. Strap in, folks. Any insight to what this could be about?

Pretty good career, pretty forgettable stint as Cubs manager. Though he did bring in Wavin' Wendell.
