Wouldn't 2 candy canes covering the "u" be even better? Or even one if 2 looked weird.

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

Yeah, the amount of work that a 19-year-old considers to be "a lot" of work is basically a vacation for a normal adult. between the state of public grade schools (in NC especially) and the overall "helicopter" parenting that takes the onus of responsibility completely off the st...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

It's funny that everyone just assumes the Cubs are some cash cow for the Ricketts family that throws off tons of cash on a yearly basis directly into their pockets. It would be very surprising if that was even remotely the reality. With that said, sign Harper. The Cubs are a cash cow for the Ricket...

If the Cubs trade Schwarber, who plays left field? Oh right, Bryant does after they sign Machado.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Again, strongly disagree. I'd genuinely be surprised if there were even 10 teams even just considering that type of mega contract. well ten teams would be a lot to choose from. so would half that. and given the types of franchises likely to be involved in that grouping, i'd have a hard time seeing ...

There's a kid on my son's soccer team named Cannon. Needless to say he's the best player on the team. He'd have to be with a name like that. As a teacher, I encounter a lot of strangely spelled or pronounced names. Key & Peele already addressed that issue. What I find more worrisome though are t...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Not sure what to think of this trade. It could benefit both sides, could help neither side or could be a steal for either team. Strome is a big name but looks a little like a bust considering he was a #3 overall pick and is getting traded along with another player for a guy that *might* be pretty go...

Why did the Blackhawks give up on Anthony Duclair? He has been awesome for the Blue Jackets this year They didn't want to pay him what they thought he'd get. He showed some flashes last year but was inconsistent. The Hawks have other fast guys with potential that are cheaper. I liked Duclair but he...

I don't see how that is discussed at all there, but anyway, the point is he will have another job before the Hawks build another dynasty. It's in the comments, not the article.
