Re: random rants

The other day I accidentally cut off some random guy. I was turning right on a green turn arrow, he was running a yellow and I pulled out in front of him. He then proceeded to follow me into the parking lot where he screamed obscenities from his truck. He called me a [expletive] and dropped a bunch...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

Lost that game in the 1st. And yeah I like the Duclair move a lot. This potentially could create competition with Hinostroza for that first line left wing spot. It's also interesting that they took Clendening back in the trade. Arizona did that so they could have another roster spot available for f...

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather

Back to school today after 5 snow days wrapped around the weekend. we got about 11" of snow in a place where 1 inch closes school for a day. I built the largest snow fort in Eastern Shore of Maryland history, rivaling the one we built in my back yard in Chicago during the blizzard of '79 or '78...

Re: 2017-2018 Blackhawks

I don't quite get the obsession with healthy scratches. People made a big deal out of sharp sitting. An older player not playing well takes one of 82 games off. Okay. I guess that healthy scratch is worse than getting benched in other sports since there is zero chance of getting in the game to rede...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado - (Cubs in talks per Levine)

Two questions I have: Machado wants to play SS but he hasn't done that on a full time basis in 5 years. I guess he did have 45 games at SS 2 years ago. Just how much defense would the Cubs be giving up to gain Machado's offense which was down the first half of last season and *could* be affected by ...

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

I don't mind Finn and Rey not being together because I was far more interested in the Rey/Kylo dynamic anyway, but what they've done to Finn's character is criminal. Why do you say that? I thought the Finn/Rose B plot felt flabby and became stupid occasionally, but I loved that they at least gave F...

Because they're clearly not the same. That's a searingly hot take. TPM fails in no small part due to how badly it botches being anything like ANH, just like how one of TFA's major strengths is how much it echoes ANH. Though I am amused by the posting of a clip called "Luke Skywalker - angsty t...

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

I have zero problem with the Ewoks; I just think the movie itself is a real clunker in the wake of the two films before and REALLY drags for too many stretches (and basically completely sidelines Leia in favor of turning Han into King horsefeathers Does Everything). Anyone complaining about the Fin...

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

If everyone can use the force, why doesn't everyone use the force? Whether you agree with it or not, they already established that not everyone has the same amount of Mitaclorins and that's what the Jedi used to target future Jedis.

Something that's been on my mind since seeing the movie. Anakin was supposedly The Chosen One that would bring balance to the force. Balance is the key word here. If the Sith were forever defeated wouldn't that unbalance the force? How can there be good without evil? In ROTJ, Luke's hatred makes him...

Plus this is the 3rd "new" SW film we've had now, so the idea that the critics are just swept up in "NEW STAR WARS horsefeathers YEAH" or whatever the horsefeathers doesn't really makes much sense, especially since they rightly like this one more than the two that came before. R...

Re: FREE DA JERSEY - Week 15 Bears @ Lions, Saturday Afternoon for some reason 3:30 PM CT, NFL-N

i think the case is reasonably in favor of keeping him, but would not be upset if he was replaced. If you did replace him, then Mitchell becomes somebody else's problem, and the next guy will be allowed to start from scratch at qb again in 2-3 years. Pace has his guy and should get one shot to win ...

Re: Orioles are shopping Machado (and he wants to go back to SS)

If the latest reports are true, the Orioles are morons (refusing to grant a window), and the White Sox may be offering simply 2 from that Cease/Hansen/Fulmer/Dunning crowd, which is a bit more understandable (reports say not offering top prospect, if Nightengale is correct, so Kopech would seem off...
