Ummm.  Negligence would be on the part of the zoo for opening an exhibit that allows small children access to 400 pound wild animals.  I guarantee you this family is getting a million calls from lawyers who know this is an easy case to win a settlement against a zoo with great insurance.  And by the way the zoo isn't going to need to recoup costs for the animal.  The animal is insured.  The situation is completely sucky for both parties, but it's the zoo that has responsibility to protect the paying customer from the exhibits.

I think Toronto wins this one, but it's the only one of the series they win.  They're sick of hearing ESPN say this series was over before it started.  And they're tired of hearing the crap how the Cavs won ten in a row.  They'll win one at home, but that's it.  Cleveland has upped their game big time.  I'm one of those guys that has been saying Cleveland was playing at a level below the teams in the West, but they really picked it up in the play offs and they're playing much better on offense.  I think they play better D than the teams in the west, and so I think they have a great shot at winning this year.  This is the best I've ever seen them play.

I do realize that, thank you.  But no one knows why he didn't file charges, especially now that we know there was plenty of evidence. So, he could have been coerced into not filing.  Or he could have realized the broadening scope of what he was into and decided to wait.  The last I heard the feds are investigating many more people connected to psu.

I have been on this for years.  I believe this issue goes very deep into the community.  I believe it has tentacles reaching so deep into the PSU board of directors/regents that it might reach all the way to the state level.  Probably need to follow the money somewhere.  Someone stood to lose a lot of money at some point because of that abuse and took care of Gricar before his actions opened up the can of worms.

So glad you started this!  Getting ready to watch with my kids!

Good call on assuming you're a Cavs fan.  My mistake and sorry it got under your skin.  That wasn't my intention at all.  I didn't down vote you, but you sure took up it a few notches with the name calling and religious stuff.  Sheesh.

It's getting crazy.  The Warriors are playing great basketball.  Curry is playing beautifully in many aspects of the game, but the homers refuse to acknowledge it.  The kid is playing amazing basketball.  It's amazing to watch him.  He's an artist and the team is so much more fun to watch than the Cavs.  I would love to see the Cavs win it all.  Cleveland deserves a championship, but I mean come on let's appreciate what's happening in the game of professional basketball.

Did you watch the game or the highlights above?  He's absolutely killer at driving into the paint.  His shooting is the best, but his passing and penetration are amazing as well.  You Cavs fans are insufferable and certainly are all more knowledgeable than the voters who UNANIMOUSLY- for crying out loud- voted him mvp.  Wake me up when the Cavs start playing big boy basketball and maybe they'll have a chance in the finals.

I agree they have improved somewhat.  I think Kyrie has really helped them along.  But they still hold the ball too long and just don't seem to have an offensive plan other than get the ball to LBJ.  And that works most of the time, especially in regular season.  But it's pretty common to see them pass the ball around the perimeter for 15 seconds and then dump off to Lebron.  That's not going to work in the finals. Don't get me wrong.  I like the Cavs and I would love for them to win, but what their doing offensively just isn't very good.  If they can get better movement with Irving and Love off the ball and run some more high screens to help with that, then they would be really really hard to stop.  They have a new coach so maybe that will help them make their run.

Re GSW, I'm not sure they get past the Spurs even with Curry.  I think the West is a little more open the East.  Should be fun play off season from here on out, and I haven't said that for a while.

The Cavs match up well with every team in the nba.  The Cavs have more individual talent at every position than all the teams out there, except at the 5 in some instances.  The matching up is never the problem with them.  Playing the game is the problem with them.  They just don't play that great as a team. They hold the ball entirely too long, have pretty much zero offensive scheming, and pass like a jr high girls team.  They keep games close because LeBron can power his way to the hoop on a clear out or iso, but  I don't think they could beat any of the top 3 in the west in a 7 game series.  They are playing basketball at significantly lower level than San Antonio or Golden State.  Western Conference finals is where you'll see the two best teams in the NBA, and that's unfortunate because that series will go 7 games and completely wipe out the winner physically and mentally.  The Cavs.  Who do they have to beat?  Miami?  Toronto?  Please.  So the Cavs have a chance.  It would be great for Cleveland.

I guess I wasn't thinking about dope, Norcal.  Maybe I'm too skeptical, but I see these guys and get concerned for them because PED abuse seems so likely at the college level.  I hope it's as simple as you suggest.

I hope you're right, OSU.  The level of ferocity and professionalism of this though...

Comment 25 Apr 2016

From day one I told my wife this is Mexican cartel.  So easy to see.  Only cartel kills mom sleeping with kid.  That's not even something mafia does.  Obviously cartel.  If you look at arial photos they had multiple dogs that were likely silenced.  Prob using suppressed weapons to avoid waking up entire house that could lead to armed confrontation.  You don't infringe on Mexican drug money.  They should have known better.  Killers will never be caught.  And by the way, that's a crazy place to live down there.  Chillicothe serial killer.  And in early January of this year mom and daughter about 15 miles away were killed while they were sleeping- still haven't found killer.

This.  I don't get the hate.  He's the best shooter ever.  And he hasn't been doing this very long.  And he does get knocked around.  They use him to set screens at the top against post players for crying out loud.  He almost got killed by Zac Randolph setting a screen fro Green. The warriors are playing light years ahead of everyone else in the league.  It's not even close.  They can run stuff on offense that no one can touch.  They are smart, disciplined and well coached.  People give the Spurs lots of praise, and they should. But the Warriors can run the Spurs offense with their eyes closed.  And then they can switch it up and go small with Green as the center up top.  They're amazing.  Hate them if you want.  Maybe they'll lose, but they are playing the highest level of basketball that has ever been played.  Ever.  And Curry is so young. Okay maybe he's not the athlete that LBJ is.  But as far as basketball goes this team is tops, and for a purist, they're a little bit of basketball heaven.  Too bad the Spurs weren't in the East so we could have a real finals.

Warriors aren't going to lose the title this year and the Cavs might not even get out of the East.  The offensive schemes that the Warriors can throw at a team are mind numbing.  They can run a triangle.  They can run small with Green out on the top.  They can run the Spurs offense with big guy on top corner. They can use Curry to set screens up top.  You guys might not like them because they're trendy or whatever, but as far as actual basketball goes they're one of the best teams to ever play the game.  Kerr is an excellent coach and they have the perfect guys for what they do.  All of those things combined is why people love to watch them.  Don't get me wrong, I like me some Cavs, but the Cavs are completely boring, especially in a playoff series because 50% of what they do is Iso LeBron or pull up and shoot the 3 LeBron.  Kerr and Popovich have taken the game of basketball to the next level.  It's a shame that the East doesn't have a team to compare with the Spurs or Warriors-  I'm not convinced the Cavs would even beat OKC in a playoff series.

Similar thing happened to me and my kids a couple years ago at Walmart.  Walking into store with family when car rips through lot at 50+.  I put up my hands and tell them to slow down.  They slow down and start cussing at me and take another slow drive by.  Punks.  What's the world coming to?
