Re: AAF 1st (only?) season

In my opinion the most exciting iteration of one of these leagues is if it becomes a viable alternative to NCAA for future NFL stars. If minor league baseball and college baseball can coexist, why can't the same thing happen in football? The difference is college football makes a lot more money. Bu...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

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...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Crawford has a limited NTC where he has to submit a list of 10 teams that the Hawks can contact regarding a trade. That in addition to the question marks regarding his health make an actual hockey trade unlikely. I think it might be time to stop offering to pay for today's hamburger on Tuesday. I ag...

I'm not sure I want football in the Spring. It feels unnatural.


That's what they said about the USFL and look how that turned out? Oh.

Is this supposed to be a feeder league for the NFL?

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

It will be interesting to see what happens with Crawford. Do the Hawks even want him back? Things have been going better without him. Should they allow him to decide when he's ready? The guy just spent basically a year recovering from one concussion and then got another. He knows what he's risking b...

Seems like the episodic format would serve the book better than the movie was able to do.


The problem with making Catch 22 into a movie or TV show is how to express the funny writing. Having a narrator like Arrested Development might do the trick.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I was thinking yesterday about what the Hawks ought to do going forward. The "plan" had been to tank (or just be incapable of playing any defense at all) and hopefully win one of the top 2 spots in the lottery. The only problem is that they aren't going to draft a top pairing defenseman wi...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It's incredibly easy to talk me into good news re: Harper, but the Cubs being a short term deal favorite makes zero sense. 3 years is the window in which you have enough guaranteed money/arb years to worry about the luxury tax, and a short term deal is almost certainly higher AAV too. If the only r...
