Andy wrote:Not that this was unforeseeable given the circumstances, but there's a bitter irony in MLB taking all these measures (DH, runner on 2nd) presumably to avoid pitcher injuries and yet we're seeing a whole horsefeathers ton of them anyway.

I will say the Blackhawks really took the Edmonton crowd out of this game early.

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

Blackhawks have scored more goals in the first period here than in their entire last playoff series in 2017.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump has literally no avenue to delay the election. Not only is it not up to him or anyone under his control, so it would take a congressional amendment/law to make the change, but each state controls its own balloting, and his rhetoric is only going to get more Democratic resistance at every borde...

Great individual effort from Pulisic to put Chelsea up 1-0 on Man City. Also terrible defending. But Pulisic beat both central defenders to score.

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

none of these sports are actually going to happen this year I'd say there's a good chance MLS happens this year. NBA could happen but suddenly Orlando is the worst place to have it. NHL should be fine overall. MLB would be fine if the owners cared about anything other than their bottom line. NFL is...

As soon as the competition became more about beating the libs and less about beating the virus, it stopped being able to be managed. And that's entirely on white house leadership.
