No, it doesn't.


Everything that ever needed to be said on that subject was said by roughly 2007. If anyone missed out, too bad.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

The consensus was that 3-8 or 3-9 were pretty interchangeable, so it's not a huge reach, but he was about the fourth most-likely guy out of the six they were choosing from in the pundits' opinion.

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

IIRC, Gomez came from Baltimore and was brought in after Gary Scott failed and was later traded for an injured Kal Daniels who doubled in his 1st AB and could not run. Meh, I was wrong it was Buechele who came over then Gomez, then Orie. Kal Daniels did have the greatest Sports Machine highlight of...

Re: ChiCargo Cubs - AKA that bad man can't hurt you anymore

Leo Gomez goes into that large, faceless pile of "people who played 3b at some point for the Cubs" with no differentiating traits. Honestly you could take any Hispanic-sounding male name and tell me they played 3b for the Cubs in the 80s or early 90s and my brain would say "oh yeah, t...

The thing with Lost is that it has no rewatch value whatsoever. Without the mysteries, there's just not much there.

The basic idea of moving on to a great lords choosing system is not a bad way to end it. It’s just inexplicable that they would choose Bran.

Re: Game of Thrones

Unless I have it wrong, wouldn't Bran have been the "rightful" king by lineage anyway? If Jon was the rightful king, wouldn't next in line be his oldest male cousin? And then Sansa after that? I'm not an expert on succession, so genuinely asking. The deeper you go, the more murky the rule...

Re: Game of Thrones

Bran to anyone who will listen for two seasons: I’m not Bran anymore and I am increasingly disconnected from the present and I am definitely not qualified to be in charge of anything Bran in final episode: King Bran sounds great to me! *makes jim face into camera* why do you think I came here? *winks*

Bran’s strength came with the cost of being so unable to care about the present that he explicitly told Tyrion he can’t be in charge of anything anymore like four episodes ago

Oh, also, Grey Worm just slit the throats of a bunch of Lannister soldiers on the spot, but he chose to just arrest Jon for killing Dany and throwing him in a cell for a few weeks?

Why do people think that people randomly got "votes" in that scene? Sam is now the eldest of House Tarly, Brienne represents House Tarth, etc. Davos was the only one not representing a house, and he admitted that he didn't get a vote Davos does have a house, it was made up for him when he...

Start with the premise that Tyrion convinces the remaining great lords (and Brienne gets a vote for some reason?!) to name a king of his choosing.

Re: Game of Thrones

Bran as undisputed king of the new southern-only kingdom is possibly the stupidest ending to a story I’ve ever seen.

Dany did exactly nothing useful in the battle with the dead. And if she hadn’t given them a dragon, they’d still be stuck on the wrong side of the wall. Her contributions to the living were not great in total

Re: Game of Thrones

Dany’s story arc only feels rushed because it was going at such a snail’s pace through the first five seasons. It’s the major flaw of Martin’s books. Ding ding ding. This. This all works if Dany loses Drogo, hatches the dragons, unites some Dothraki and steals unsullied, then comes flying into West...
