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.

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.

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.

JT can be a great passer when the offense is schemed to make him successful. The offense never got in sync the last two years. Some of that is on Barrett, some of it isn't. In order to throw guys open, they need to be where they're supposed to be. Again, I don't know how much is on the receivers and how much is on how they're instructed to run their routes. I don't think another QB would've done more the last two years than Barrett, so that's good enough for me.

My favorite shot was from my buddy Tim. There was 3 of us playing. Myself and my buddy Bryan played the hole in regulation. Tim hacked it all over the place. We were already on the green while he took a drop from the left trees. I can't even remember what stroke he was playing. He knocked it out of the trees at the green, but had no line of sight to see where it went. Bryan and I watched the ball go in the hole. When Tim made it up to us, he had no idea where the ball was, just that it went towards the green. We let him walk all the way around the green twice before we suggested that he check in the hole. We had to tell him multiple times to check the hole before he finally looked in and found his ball. We had a good laugh at his expense as he walked away with the most disappointing hole out in his life.
