Re: NFL Offseason

An offense centered around Tyrod Taylor, Saquon Barkley, Josh Gordon, and Jarvis Landry could be really great.

Oh, and with a horsefeathers ton of cap room? Could be good and fast.

How's Boston's recent history of guys who play awful (or no) defense been lately? This'll be a terrible deal.

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I was at the Rose Bowl yesterday and, had you asked me before the game, would I rather have had UGA/OU or Clemson/Bama, I would have taken Clemson/Bama overtime. Wow, would that have been an awful game to watch live. Was part of the on-field flag celebration before the game and was in the OT end zon...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

I scored 4 tickets to the Rose Bowl and am so excited to attend. I've got no real dog in Oklahoma/Georgia (I was hoping OSU would have, unlikely, snagged a spot) but it looks like it'll be a great game. I've never been inside the Rose Bowl and just the atmosphere around it is stirring me into a fren...

Cheesecake Factory is great. And for you people who complain about portion sizes, split with your spouse/partner. Same with dessert.

I have the same issue, but their menu is so extensive that surely you can find something you and someone else can agree on.

Rand Paul is currently in a hospital with broken ribs and bruised lungs from being beaten by his neighbor and no one is really talking about the incident. In surprising news, it’s because Rand is a dick and doesn’t recognize local property regulations. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/11/06/us/polit...

Re: NBA Offseason

Heyward is going to Boston. Probably realized he had no chance of making the finals with Utah with every star outside of LeBron/Kyrie/Giannis playing in the West. if that was his concern, he wouldn't be in boston either You don't think Boston can/will compete in the next 5 years? Better chance ther...

Re: Bulls offseason

Basketball metrics are too weird, for me to use with any certainty. I don't think there's any question Oladipo would move directly into a starters role, just as he did with OKC and Orlando. I don't even think his contract is bad. Its just the going rate nowadays. And I think most teams would easily...

Re: Bulls offseason

If that's the best offer out there for Butler, you do not trade him. His value isn't going to go up from a trade perspective. By bringing back the same group of players, you're staring at a team that is going to be too competitive for any sort of meaningful impact player in the draft next season. N...

Bulls sign Justin Holiday from the Knicks. I think there's some hindsight that needs to be seen here after the turd return for Paul George as well. Quite simply, the offers we all WANTED weren't there. Who really Garpax is dumb enough to turn down two (or hell, even 1) studly picks for a guy who is ...
