Re: Star Trek thread

My wife, who is a very devoted Star Trek fan (she has been a part of a group for over 25 years that gets together once a month to watch two episodes from the Star Trek franchise), and is especially devoted to Jean Luc Picard, loved it. I liked it as well. Of course, that could be because she loves S...

Re: Jordan/Bulls Doc Release Pushed Up To April 19th

episode 9 is gonna be good. that was a tough series as a kid, that was the only of the 6 title seasons where i actually remember thinking they were going to lose I honestly can't remember as a Pacers fan if we felt we were going to win. It was the 3rd time we had lost in game 7 of the ECF in 5 year...

For those that have the Athletic, how do you guys typically navigate the site?

Isn't d'Arnaud a terrible framer or did I make that up? If we're insisting on trading Willy then plan A has to be Grandal and plan B a Caratini/Jason Castro split. I like Castro quite a bit if we go that route. This isn’t directed to you specifically, but something I’ve been wondering about is if a...

It would presumably be available out of market like any other RSN is, just would black out the games. Well then I may be accidentally paying for it if it’s bundled with the above mentioned networks.
