Re: On Bended Knee - The Rizzo Thread

Jake was the icing on the cake for me to believe they were really gonna be special once they added KB and hopefully a TORP in FA. He was just nasty and he almost no-hit the Cardinals IIRC, which just kind of gave you chills.

Holzhauer might be my favorite human. Austin and Ken Jennings are awesome too. Yeah, Holzhauer is an aquaintence of a relative of mine, and I've heard good things, and I've met Ken when he hosted a national bar trivia competition I was at, and he rocked it. Austin I don't know in any personal way, ...

I feel like he hits a point of diminishing returns with all those pitches to choose from. If your stuff is elite, you only need 3- 4 is icing. He goes overboard.

Little more luck on our outside shooting and if Rose hadn't gone into hero mode, we beat them in that series and go on to beat Dallas as well.

I'm reticent to reveal this but we made a trip to the beach yesterday. Yes it was packed, if you looked at an overhead view it would seem as if nobody was practicing social distancing. But really, the only people who were "together", came together in groups. Every set-up was ~15 ft from th...

Re: Offseason Top Prospect Lists

Bigge looks like a 2019 12th round steal. He was sitting in the upper-80s and low-90s at Harvard, then spiked into the 92-95 range out of the bullpen after the draft. By the fall, he was touching at least 97 and I have one source who had him up to 99. He now looks like a quick-moving bullpen weapon...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

ESPN highlighted the Bears' long struggle with running the ball up the middle. They havent ranked higher than 22nd in this millennium. That is embarrassing, especially for a team with such a rich history of doing just that.

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Haslem was such a problem for us protecting the rim. We just kept attacking him and getting thwarted left and right. When he was off the floor we had little trouble scoring. Then we went ice cold from deep and Rose started forcing drives with 6 hands in his face. We really blew that series. It was h...

Every so often I am able to pull my wife away from reality TV and Housewives crap and get her to delve into something worthwhile. I am excited that we have finished about half of the first season of Ozark and that we both like it equally. Really good show. Super dark and twisted - right up my alley.

Meh, Tedd Ginn doesn't have the speed or quickness he once had, and his drops have become more and more of a problem in recent years. It says something that WR depth is still an issue in NO yet they didn't even offer him a contract. He's done. Yeah, not as excited about this move as I was when he f...

I still remember when we swept the Pistons in the ECF better than I do most of the other series from that era. We were camping at the time and were listening on the radio. Several other families we didn't even know started gathering around our lot to listen to the games and by game 4 it was an all o...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops 2h Cannot stress this enough - the Bulls organization instantly looks better in the eyes of potential big-name free agents with Gar Forman gone. His presence poisoned the well with players, agents, and other execs. Players talk, and Forman was deemed completely untrustworthy.

I like the Raptors guy a lot. I also would love it if they grabbed the guy from Denver. They didn't completely luck out on Jokic at 41; they saw a player with the size of a center but who could handle the ball like a guard. His agent tried pulling him from the draft but Denver guaranteed they would ...
