Re: Week 2: Seahawks @ Bears MNF on ESPN 7:15PM

Going to this game. My first Bears (or any football) game since the Bears/Packers MNF game in 2010, one of the few times Jay beat GB.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I went to a AAA game yesterday (Columbus Clippers vs. Louisville Bats) and it always surprises me how steep a drop off of quality it is down just one level from the majors. It was ugly baseball at best, with maybe 3 or 4 players (combined) who looked major league worthy/ready. The Clippers won 9-8 ...

The GF and I adopted/rescued a 15 year old Chihuahua (still have to look up how to spell that every damn time). She is an animal lover to say the least and used to work at the Humane society. He has horrible breath, two(!) teeth, and is sweet and appreciative as hell. I’ll try to post a picture at ...

Out until 2020? That seems like a really pessimistic timeline.


I'm guessing 2020 relevancy to the ML team as opposed to minor leagues, where he'll presumably rehab at the end of '19.

So a rabbit in my yard broke my dog's brain: I let the dog out earlier, and she saw a family of rabbits on the other side of the fence, and started going nuts. Wanted to chase them but couldn't, and she stood out in the pouring rain for 15 minutes, not wanting to come inside. Couldn't lure her with...
