Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Dude got left for dead in a coup (and lost a damn finger) , only to drag his bleeding ass to catch up after being miles behind his old crew and reclaim his role as alpha male with li...

it's all luck but it still comes down to championships for that word to be invoked. more than one. probably more than 2. the 90s yankees and the 2010s giants.

Its not a bad general rule, but I'd call the 1 championship 90s Braves a dynasty.

Man all this talk about Trumps dangerous precedent when this isn't the precedent, it is the example of crossing the line.

Yup. The most glaring thing that should jump out is that this dude is technically RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT effectively out of nowhere instead of, y'know, literally anything else on the state level. But hey, Trump technically did it, so all bets are off at this point, I guess. Hey blow the doors wide o...

There may also be scenarios where certain players just really need to start making ends meet for their families.

We'll see. I just think it's funny how fast the draft experts change their opinions. They do it in the same draft (remember how 6'3", 225lb Mitch Trubisky was a prototypical QB build while 6'3", 225lb LaMar Jackson was too sleight and should change to WR?) what draft expert said lamar jac...

That said, the tax bill didn’t solve any of the country’s problems unless you feel the rich are already overtaxed. I’d also pay more than $10000 a year to strip the toxic racism from the daily cultural discourse. I think you've keyed on a great way to measure casual racism. People who think because...
