I mean I guess this is a "current event"...?

Re: Politics & Current Events

I am with you, and we do need a more Left of center party and POTUS candidate. But once the nominee has been chosen, winnng back the White House needs to be everyone’s mission, no matter if it’s Biden or Beto. I’m still pissed about Bernie Bros making some equivalency between Hillary and Trump bein...

Re: NFL Playoffs

How much times would’ve been left if the Saints didn’t stupidly pass on first and third down (yes I know the pass led to PI so it was “smart” in a way)? But if they just run 3 times and kick a FG the Rams would’ve had ~40 seconds and no TOs to try and kick a tying FG? It’s been a theme on local rad...

Heh. GOAT is obviously an exaggeration. Right now I'd put her ahead of Daniel Webster and just below Henry Clay...

Re: NFL Playoffs

I absolutely can compare those calls. You’re comparing a missed strike two in an AB where a dude grounded out and a missed play at the plate in the bottom of the 9th. was the Saints WR in the endzone? how can you say it absolutely would have altered the game? Dude, it would have made it first and g...

So that ref, Phil McKinnley played for the Rams...he also played for the Falcons and missed that really obvious targeting call last year that gave Kamara a concussion when the Saints played the Falcons. Sour grapes I know, but c'mon. NFL refs need to be beyond reproach. You shouldn't get to call a ...

Re: The 2018-2019 Cubs Offseason Rumors & Discussion Thread AKA The Rickettssss take a dump on EVERYTHING

It's maddening how many Cubs fans (on other sites) still think that a) leadoff hitter is a "thing", b) that it's a major need, and c) that not having one is the reason the Cubs didn't go far last year. 2018 leadoff hitting statistics are basically identical to 2016 numbers. Of all the thi...

Honestly curious, why? He’s not my first choice right now, but he does check quite a few boxes.
