No way; that's obviously his fetish. Guys, the DS wreckage better be on Endor, and we better get to see some horsefeathering ewoks. Endor was a moon so the planet it orbited probably had a stronger gravitational pull. Or, something that big hitting the planet caused a huge dust cloud that destroyed...

Taylor Davis sounds like a country singer that can't decide if she wants to be a cross over artist.

Re: AAF's only season

Football just doesn't feel right in Spring. No matter how well a Spring league is advertised or marketed, it just doesn't work. It's unnatural. Not only that, but the entire business model of football is predicated on irrational fan emotional investment bringing you out to the stadium once or twice...

Re: On what date does Maddon get fired? winner gets an up vote

Who says they can't find a better manager? I haven't liked Maddon since he almost lost the WS with his choke moves. The Key word being almost. Don Baylor didn't get fired until July 4th. Dusty didn't get fired, just not renewed. Granted, that was a different regime but I think the answer for Maddon...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I've never been a big fan of April Fool's Day sports teams pranks but this one was well executed. Just plausible enough yet still ridiculous. Much better than the fake "Cutler is coming out of retirement" headline I saw earlier today.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

If Contreras' agent had advised him to sign any extension with his value at its low point since arriving in MLB, I would hope he would be fired for malpractice. That assumes that you're trying to extend Contreras as if he's last year's player forever. Sure you might discount some on his 2017 perfor...

Jesus H. Way to make a 5-0 game a heart stopper. When the Hawks play the way they did in the first period they look like they could beat anybody. Then the 3rd period happened to remind us what they really are. It seemed like there were a lot of desperate passes to nobody in particular by virtually ...

we went to disney last week. The line at the Avatar ride was insane.

The ride was pretty cool, and I'd guess the mille...

Why would you think that? It would seem like the perception of the South is that it's basically swampland or formerly swampland.

If Crawford wants to come back next week and throw up three shutouts before March 1 while some top team's goalie blows an ACL, then sure, grab a first round pick for him and let him get back to the playoffs. Other than that, he's the best goalie we're going to have next year (and this year if we ma...
