Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I'm having a blast reading through AVClub's year by year brakedown of the action movie genre. I want to watch ALL OF THEM.

Re: Blackhawks Offseason

Not too surprising. Buddy of mine predicted that before the last loss. When you're in charge of the PK and the defense, and that happens....not good.

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

Because casual fans who think the games are too long will always think the game is too long. It's a game with a lot of "no-action" time, and barring a pitch clock, it will always be that way. Changing extra innings or eliminating four pitch IBB's is t adding a single fan This sounds well ...

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

Okay let me further explain that as meaning a deep slump or a long slump. Yeah, every hitter goes through stretches where they struggle and slump. It happens. I'm just not sold on Heyward being this productive. I hope I'm wrong guys. I'm not a "Hater" or someone who wants to see him strug...

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

Me: Went to the game last night. Anyone: Oh yeah? Who won? Me: No one! Leave it alone! Only other major sport where this is not a possibility is the NBA. Somehow the NFL, NHL, and MLS fans all cope just fine. Its rule changes to appease casual fans who don't really like baseball that much. It's a w...

Re: TV thread

Though thinking about it, you can probably argue it's ended up influencing things like Legion (and, hell, aspects of Fargo ) and things like Mr. Robot , Orphan Black , Stranger Things and Black Mirror . It took a while, and a bunch of cheesy post-apocalyptic disaster shows, but, yeah, I can see it ...

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

So no one wants to mention how Heyward looked last night? Yeah he got credited with a "base hit" but we all know if it weren't for the M. Carpenter misplay he would have been 0-4 yesterday... I don't want to harp on this, but his swing still looks messed up and his timing is still off. Ma...

Re: The Cardinals

Man, the Cardinals are just so bad. They suck. Their offense sucks. They have the worst defense in the league. Their bullpen sucks. Their rotation is really meh and is going to suck once a couple of their oft-injured starters become re-injured. They just suck. They might lose 90 games this year. An...

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

No one cares about the long relievers that bear the brunt of extra inning games. Also, a long extra inning game or two isn't going to be the difference between a pitcher breaking or not, it's a negligible difference between the manager's discretion of just using that guy an extra time or two over t...
