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

The relative pearl-clutching people have descended to over the idea of one SW movie a year makes me want to build a time machine AND a cloning machine so I can amass an army of 7-year old me's to annoy everyone to death. It's not pearl-clutching, it's Disney trying to make too many movies based aro...

When people call her out on how insensitive it is, they can say "oh, we're criticizing a woman for how she dresses now?! How petty!" and if they're lucky they can make that argument the headline for three days.


I have already seen this exact argument presented.

Re: Golf thread

I don't disagree Phil did something slightly sketchy, but having been frustrated AF while playing golf, I totally get it. Regardless, they enforced the rules as written. I do agree that they need to close that loophole too.

Re: Golf thread

This Phil Mickelson controversy is quite something. The USGA really dropped the ball from what it appears. Nope, they got it exactly right. The rule people wanted them to use to DQ him explicitly states that if any other rule covers the violation, it takes precedence. In this case, hitting a moving...

Re: THE Bryce Harper in 2018 Thread

Washington Nationals superstar outfielder Bryce Harper is a five-time All-Star and the 2015 National League MVP, but there's at least one NL executive who reportedly believes Harper is overrated and not worth paying a king's ransom to acquire once he becomes a free agent after this season. "He...

That scouting report on Richan sounds an awful lot like Hendricks with the being able to cut pitches in both directions, the velocity, and strike throwing.

respect to the Jets But did the Jets vote to implement the rule? He did vote for it, so this is a weird mixed message.
