Agreed Brutus. I'm rewatching season five now. Arya stuck in Braavos, Sansa stuck with Ramsay, and Bran just chilling up north. Not the most exciting storylines. Some good action with Jon at the end of the season, but not much else. Season six was considerably better in my opinion. This year might be the best.

Good post but I disagree on Milsap. He is a 10 year vet which means he is eligible for the big daddy max contract. The Cavs will have to pay him at least $30 million a year to acquire him. I wouldn't advise giving superstar money to a 32 year old forward who will average 15 points and 7 rebounds. Also, Milsap can't defend Durant. Jimmy Butler can. Butler could also defend Curry or Thompson. 

I agree on Love. He really he is a great player and fits well in the Cavs system. It is unfortunate that his play against the Dubs has been so up and down. You would like to keep him but there is no scenario where you can acquire Butler without giving up Love.

Chipper Jones in the field? That is not a good thing. That's being said, he looks like a stud. Good for Reds!

Props to you both. I love hearing stories like that! I'm just coming from a research perspective. Most think tanks agree that having a child out of wedlock puts you at a ridiculously high risk of being in poverty. The wealth gap between a single parent household and two parent household is staggering. Having a child at a really young age doesn't mean there will be only one parent involved, but it is more likely for sure. I applaud you for turning your life around for your child, we need more of that in this country. Having two involved parents is about the greatest gift any child can have growing up.

I wouldn't recommend becoming a parent so so very early in life, but glad they decided to keep the baby.  Congrats to them both!

Common misrepresentation. There are a couple nutty laws, but it isn't honey boo boo land down here like the media portrays. Unfortunately, the extreme fringe side of things usually dominate the headlines. Note: this post excludes Mississippi.

Haha, Moore actually hated that scene because he would later go on to work for UNICEF. He also refused to watch boxing because he thought it was too violent. Funny that in real life he was the ultimate pascifist.

His brilliance was that he never tried to be Sean Connery. He made a entirely different Bond around his skills. To me he will always be the funny Bond. Always ready with a funny one liner even when faced with certain death.

Congrats man! Yeah, you better get used to ESPN panning over to Lavar about ten times a game. You will hear from Lavar before the game, during, and after. Lonzo may be the guy on the court, but it is the "Lavar Ball Show" that is coming to LA!

Comment 17 May 2017

Agreed. Although there is a massive difference in value between 3 and 5. Everyone has different evaluations, but I think Fultz, Ball, and Tatum are by far the best 3. Jackson and Fox could very well be great players, but I'm more skeptical. You have to wonder if a guy like Fox is going to be able to shoot the ball. I guess worse things have happened than being a somewhat Rondo like player. 

Comment 17 May 2017

That would be classic. Lavar having to move from Cali to Philadelphia. If Lonzo gets picked by the Lakers we will have to suffer through seeing Lavar on TV every other day.

I hate to say any game is more important than Michigan, but PSU is up there. We gave Franklin a massive boost when we collapsed against the lions and saved their season. PSU is on a recruiting surge now and if they win the Big Ten again it will embolden Franklin even more. This is a game where we need to absolutely stomp PSU and prove we are on a different level. We have superior personnel and we need to show it. I hope Urban pulls a Woody and goes for 2 with us up by 5 touchdowns. Inflict. Maximum. Pain.
