Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

This draft pick does nothing the move the needle for me. Can't imagine watching much Bulls basketball again this winter

Re: Morrow to the DL; Hancock stays up

My dad was laid up in bed for several weeks with some sort of nerve thing in his back. I'm glad I wasn't there to bring him to the doctor (my mom and sister said he screamed in agony and sobbed getting in and out of the car)

Re: Politics & Current Events

I know how this one goes. 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. Completely ignoring how often they criticized Michel...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I have a really bad habit of turning on these games after all the goals have already been scored, only to watch an hour of scoreless soccer Unfortunately, I think the length of the tournament coupled with the timing at the end of the club season is leading to a lot of teams conserving energy and si...

I'm fascinated by professional soccer players' ability to miss a wide open goal, straight on from 20 feet away

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I was an NL purist for a very long time, mostly due to my annoyance of having a sport that is based on players having "two-way" skill sets watered down by "one-way" players, and the myth of the NL having "better strategy". The truth is, most NL managers suck at this str...

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

Making movies with Sith and Jedi and the Empire and bounty hunters and all that is awesome. No one is saying they want a SW movie that doesn't have those things in it. They just want a different storyline within that framework. The reason KOTOR comes up so often is because it is thousands of years ...

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

They...aren't creating new characters? What. They're creating new characters that are all tied into the Luke-Skywalker plot. They're afraid to start a brand new storyline with all new characters/relationships that doesn't tie into Luke. I know Rogue One had Vader and Leia, but none of the main cast...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

What's the logistical difference between four 8-team divisions (plus a bunch of wildcards) vs. eight 4-team divisions (a la the NFL) with fewer wildcards?

I'm definitely not. The MCU approach to film releases simply won't work for Star Wars

Re: Time and Turning 50

It's a hard slap in the face when people your age start passing away from things besides car accidents or suicide. I've had people I went to high school or college pass away from cancer, alcoholism, etc. I had my 25 year HS reunion last year and realized all 69 (nice) of our class is still alive. I...
