Re: Video Game Thread

I could see Best Buy's having stock, especially if they don't have them or any sign out on the floor indicating they are in stock. I didn't even really think about them as a potential seller until the website yesterday had them. Also, in stores I had been in previously, I didn't bother asking people...

Re: Video Game Thread

I got it! I felt like a fisherman trying to catch a wriggling fish. The page I was refreshing wasn't showing them, but then I clicked the link from the tweet Best Buy sent and got in. It then took almost 10 minutes to add to the cart, another 5-7 minutes to get to the final screen, and then 15 minut...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I'm torn on what is the worst outcome for Trump. A) Let's it die and damage an already damaged credibility issue. Obamacare continue to roll on, proving that it will die on it's own is a false narrative used by all GOP. But, it would allow him to go to issues that all GOP can get behind, tax reform...

Re: Top 108 Moments for the 2016 Cubs (Now at #24)

From someone who regrettably didn't see most of his starts during the season, were the pickoffs by Hendricks during the playoffs just a tiny sample size, or is he really one of the best in the league at that? He had at least two of them and maybe three of them during the postseason, which seems usua...

Healthcare is going to keep tripping up both parties for the foreseeable future. If you look at the polls, this is one area where the American public is really unreasonable.

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

I will fully admit I'm probably one of those people MLB is trying to get. I follow the team all season, but during the regular season I don't actually watch very many games anymore. Makes perfect sense. I don't want to start watching a game just to turn it off before the end, so I just avoid it alt...

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

I am not a fan of this rule btw. Extra inning games are interesting and bring fascinating strategy into play. And the stakes are always high because one swing of the bat can swing the game at any time. They are often the most memorable and fun games of a regular season. Trying to end them early robs...

Yeah the time thing is so stupid in terms of talking about reducing time to get more fans.

Re: NFL Thread 2016

I've never liked the OT rules very much. I especially don't like that the impact is so different for different types of teams. If you have two great defenses playing each other, the coin toss isn't very important. But when you have two great offenses, it becomes much more important. My solution woul...

While Devos did pass through committee to the full senate vote, Murkowski does sound like she is on the fence (even though her committee vote did ensure she got through).

When I think of the regular season, this is the first game that comes to mind for me. I love games that go way outside the box like this. I had absolutely no idea if a pitcher in this game could earn both the win and the save if his appearances on the mound were broken up by another pitcher, and tha...

Didn't we learn enough from the Henry Blanco, terrible translator incident not to put too much weight behind Chapman's exact phrasing?

Goony is 100% right. Whatever happened, it wound up working. No need to apologize, unless he was trying to put Aroldis under the knife, in which case, he failed and deserves scorn.
