The Bulls win behind defense and Jordan hanging 60 on whoever tries to guard him. These dudes don't even know what defense is. Pippen would frustrate LBJ and throw the Cavs completely out of sync.

Not that long ago I fell down a flight of stairs like a slinky. Except I had to walk back up the stairs to take a piss because I thought the basement stairway was the bathroom door.

Well said. There's literally nothing separating what we know Larry Johnson knew and what we know Jay Paterno knew. The difference is Jay sticking up for his father's name. I can't say I wouldn't do the same in his shoes. JoePa has probably been run down a little more than deserved in all this for the simple reason that he represents a perfect dividing line between both sides. He also never really had the chance to deliver his side of the story. What better person to crucify than one who can't defend himself.

I agree that this is bad PR. And that Penn State has made a mess in handling this situation every step of the way. But there's never been any proof of Jay actually having any knowledge of the sexual abuse. He's received blame his father's behalf, though you could argue he only got this position because of his name. I guess I'm trying to say I think this is more of a shoulder shrug reaction than outrage. I don't think this is a slap in the face of the victims. More like cronyism for a guy who may or may not have got an unfair black eye in all this.

A clean break is the way to go. Short and professional. I did it about two years ago. My new job ended up being lies and empty promises, so I returned to my original job 3 months later. Ended up getting myself and another guy in the same position a 40% raise over the deal. Could've avoided the whole situation with proper pay in the first place, but that's what business has become.

I disagree about the comments from a competitive person. A true competitor thinks he can win regardless of everything else. If he's as good as he supposed to be be, he should think he's the difference in making a winner. He shouldn't want to take the easier path just for that sake alone. It's not like OSU is Rutgers. As bad as this team has been, there's still enough talent to turn things around with a few new pieces.

I lived in 3 bedroom apartment style dorms, so there were 6 of us per dorm. We had a roommate who smelled like he rolled in pig shit all the time. We stole his calendar and wrote "shower" on every single day. He moved out shortly after. We had another roommate who was a serious weed smoker and he took the liberty of using everyone's stuff at his own discretion. The night before he headed back to Vermont for Christmas break, one of my roommates loosened the valve cores on all 4 tires of his car. He made it about twenty miles before he had 4 flat tires. He also moved out shortly after. I felt bad about that one because he was too stupid to catch it and bought new tires. But not too bad because I wasn't privy to the prank until after the fact.

I have sling right now. It's very good for what it is, but live sports look a little off. I think it's something with the frame rate. Picture quality is there, but the quick movements of a baseball pitch, for example, are blurred. The cable company has to come to your house and physically disconnect the basic cable package, so I still use that for broadcast channels. It's been about 3 months for me since I cancelled cable and they still haven't disconnected. I plan to get an OTA antenna at some point. There's a new product called AirTV by sling which would connect your OTA antenna with sling so that you access that programming the same way. 

There's no perfect solution to replacing cable, but if you're willing to compromise, you can get pretty close.

The lowest I've ever seen is 1.9% and that was on certified pre-owned through the OEM financing. The lowest public I've ever seen is 2.2%. You're doing just fine at 2.5%.

What makes baseball great is the relationship to the players you can form. The season is long, and you get more access to baseball players than in any other sport. Kipnis is everything great about baseball. He's an effort guy more than he's a talent guy. His attitude and personality are extremely likeable. Guys like him are what's going to bring baseball back.

Pretty solid finale. I was happy to finally see a twist that I wasn't expecting. I have to wonder if they're properly armed to deal with the incoming invasion. Maybe there's a group split coming as we've seen before. I can't picture a scenario where they soundly defeat Negan with what they're working with.

It's going to be a problem as long as there's not a real coach. Griffin was a fine coach, but Lebron's ego prevents him from being coached any direction he doesn't want to go. This team would be untouchable with someone like Popovich or Phil Jackson. Assuming the players bought in an allowed themselves to be coached. 

Comment 24 Mar 2017

His 40 time is exactly like his career. He's always looked the part but never produced. It's a shame he was so hyped as a freshman, because without those expectations he would be viewed as having a pretty successful career. Instead everyone is wondering what might've been. 

Comment 21 Mar 2017

I'd make incentives for players to play as many games as possible. That would probably have to be installed in the next round of contracts. I'd also make teams declare their intentions to rest players at least one week in advance of the date they're resting. 

I don't know why teams can't operate like MLB. A lot of times, days off in baseball result in you being a late inning sub. Bring Lebron off the bench for a couple nights for rest.
