Re: soccer soccer soccer

I would flip that and say Atalanta has a surprisingly great shot at making the final. They're in excellent form and have enough upcoming games to be sharp but also a short break to be rested for UCL. PSG is always a bit of an unknown in Europe and they haven't played a game in 4 months. Add in that ...

Re: MLB Imposes 60 Game Season, Spring Training 2.0 Starts in 7 Days

MLB.tv blackouts were never about attendance? I don’t even recall that being floated as an excuse, it’s to prop up local tv deals that bring in a huge chunk of the league’s revenue.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Wolves would be a very good situation for McKennie. The biggest downside is if they don't end up in Europe(right now it looks like they'll need Man City to lose their appeal), they typically play with a pretty tight 11 so playing time might be more sparse than we'd like. They're in a Europa League ...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

TSS thought that Southampton(who is going in on RB-esque pressing chaos) would be a particularly fun fit for McKennie. Going to a superclub would be worse than where he is, but pretty much anywhere else(like Hertha Berlin or Newcastle) that's more realistic would likely be better than whatever Schal...

MLS comes back tomorrow! It’s a fun league and if you’re in this thread you should watch it. I put a preview together for some Euro-based coworkers and thought I’d adapt it here in case others find it worthwhile. If you haven’t followed MLS before, the competitive environment is a mix between the NF...

I don't think containment is possible at this point. We are gonna find out how far the maximum potent...

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

If the examples of how Star Wars has been ruined/gone downhill include using cute but pointless creatures that only exist to sell merch, and contrived plot points so the underdog can win a space battle, I would suggest they are being extremely faithful to what makes Star Wars entertaining.

Common sense has reached a level of adoption that McConnell is extolling the virtures of wearing a mask on the Senate floor, so hopefully that means confrontation about masks fades to anti-vaxxer proportions shortly.
