Re: Do you get your flu shot?

Normally no, but yes this year because I now have an infant son. I have at times in the past, but I guess just never prioritized it regularly. The awkward conversation was with my parents who will be providing some part time care starting in January and their (particularly my moms) abstinence to get...

I was really excited to try it at this place in Germany a few years ago only to find that they had given me an outdated English menu and it wasnt available.

Re: The Pitching Staff, as a whole

What about the opposite of a 6-man rotation. What if a team had 2-3 really good starters, and then bullpenned the other days with a really superior bullpen? Could it work? Something like this?

Packers getting crushed right now by Lions. So the Bears either will keep their one game lead in the W column or Rodgers will do more sorcery stuff.

Re: Politics & Current Events

The GOP can nominate someone else before the midterms, but there is no way they're confirming someone in that short a span. It normally takes between 50-90 days to get someone confirmed. There was an article on politico or fivethirtyeight.com about this. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/02/...

Oh and they've matched their INT total from 2015, 16, and 17 (8). Can they keep up the pace and get more this year than the 3 previous?

Re: Week 5 - Bears vs the Bye

3 toughest games left (NE, LAR, GB) are all at home. Nothing else seems particularly tough. As speculated the Bears SoS always was weaker than it looked based on last years records, though Min looking weak to this point also helps a lot.

It will also be interesting if Jabari plays a lot of PF with Lauri out and the Bulls excel in that lineup.

Re: 2018-2019 Bulls season thread

Nah, they'll be way better than that. They were a game better last year with a worse team and a stronger Eastern conference. They probably overachieved based on W-L last year. 23-59 expected W-L. Lots of unknowns though. A resurgent Jabari that puts Lavine in a more tertiary offensive role that foc...

I think they have every intention of letting some FBI agent write a report in a week that says "whelp, it's he said/she said" and then voting him through. A week more of bad press and pain for them is better than nothing, but this still ends with him on the court. So the motivation is the...
