Re: homophobe (Daniel Murphy), incoming (to the Cubs)

I've never been less excited about the Cubs getting a better than average position player. Hopefully, someone in the media will ask him about his views and if they've changed.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Some reports indicate that Cohen is a straight plea without cooperation. He may be banking on a Trump pardon. That's not the information I want to hear so I'm choosing not to believe it.

Re: Politics & Current Events

It's cute how so many media observers (even liberal ones) think that moderator/host prep matters so much. Real time fact checking doesn't even horsefeathering matter. When will it just be accepted that asymmetrical disinformation campaigns aren't about fostering debate? It's about flooding the airw...

Re: Bat Flip Thread

The lack of elevation, full rotation or distance traveled dings it a bit, but the immediacy, certainty, finger point, situational awareness and the name/number combo on that back of that jersey really sells it. I go 8/10 on the flip. 10/10 for me. Notice the right-hand index finger doing the number...
