Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

It takes a lot of strength to hit a ball 400 feet without the velocity of a pitch aiding the process . as an aside, this has been almost thoroughly debunked; estimated that each extra MPH adds just about a foot in distance, and that doesn't account for slower speed pitches being vastly easier to ba...

Re: NFL week 15

i played that clip at 1/4x speed and it looks like he was being stripped of the ball in the air before feet landed, so INC would be the right call if available angles corroborate that but hypothetically say he gets two feet down and then the ball is ripped out, doesn't matter still a TD, just like a...

the guy is horsefeathering 88 years old and his seat has been Democratic for almost 80 years. The Republicans aren't going to be able to hold Michigan's 13th no matter how hard they try. this is a fun opportunity to see how ludicrously shapen that district is https://wdet.org/media/daguerre/2016/07...
