Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

I watched about half of last night's game, it was pretty wild. They had their 2nd consecutive regulation win, which is kind of a big deal for them. And now they've sent down Boqvist to make space for Connor Murphy. That game was fun. I didn't make it past the first period but they packed a game's w...

Now that I've bought a replacement, I'm going to find out that I put it in my playing partner's bag but he hasn't noticed because he doesn't play much. He's a friend of a friend so I can't ask him directly.

I was hoping that The Mandalorian would have the same type of feel as Rogue One and it did not disappoint.

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

Angry SW fans aren't going to know where to turn now, since apparently this was something Lucas had done before he sold the franchise to Disney. I think they've circled back to "Lucas should never have sold Star Wars and the Prequels are better than the sequels." Which is wrong in some ma...

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

By my quick count, there 10 new players if you count Shaw. The bottom rung guys are younger, sort of, but not really. They are giving regular PT to 4 rookies. That being said, so what? Colliton needs to go.

Re: Blackhawks 2019-2020 - A New Window

Boqvist is better than Gustafson offensively, can't be any worse defensively and is a RH shot. This move makes lots of sense.

Re: Golf thread

Amazing seeing him change his game too. He can't quite bomb it with the main guys now, so he just decided to hit fairways and become pretty much the best iron player in the game. So, all the courses that were "Tiger proofed" by making them narrower should now play more to Tiger's strength...

If he's lost Seabrook, he's lost the team. How so? Brent Seabrook is one of the least consequential players on the team. He's bad at hockey. He is going to be shuffled aside at some point during this contract, it's just a matter of when and how. Why would he be the linchpin of the team? Evidently h...

another year of tanking I guess It's gonna be awhile. They're gonna be paying for all the cap circumvention for a couple of more years still. Totally worth it still. This is mostly true. Keith is the only one on a cap circumvention contract now that Hossa is gone. Seabrook's Bobby Bonilla -esque co...

Things that makes you go "Hmmm..." for $500, Alex.


There are no $500 clues in Jeopardy


Because they are answers, hence phrasing in the form of a question. Also the doubling thing.

Hawks played well last night. I had to listen to the Caps TV broadcast and they were saying that Holtby was standing on his head. I'm not sure I'd go that far but he was very good. Kirby Dach reminded me a lot of Teuvo's debut in that the game seemed to be moving fast around him. He got better as th...

Re: Cubs Manager Search

I'd like to believe that interviewing Girardi and Ross were for the portion of the fan base (and maybe the owner) that would think that those guys were good hires but that they want someone who is a better match as far as baseball philosophy. That being said, I'm ok with them hiring Ross since that ...

Re: Who gets traded in the offseason?

Schwarbs and Contreras make ton of sense, Bryant does not. The only way it makes sense if they already discussed an extension with Bryant and they are really far apart. That seems pretty unlikely now[...] What makes you think that? It's still early to give up on extending Bryant. I don't believe th...

Re: Moving

For me unpacking is worse because it takes forever. It the mean time there are all these boxes everywhere. Packing sucks enough that it should be the worst part of the move but then you have to unpack. It's like adding insult to injury.
