He's from Pittsburgh, but went to OSU; spent the first 4 yrs of his career in Philly, then was traded here.  Now he's back in Philly.  To me, the only home-grown aspect is he went to OSU.  Good luck to him in Philly, but I think we got the better end of the deal.

I agree BO, the youngsters are pretty damn exciting to watch already, and they're only going to get better.

I really hope you get one.  It's not like Seattle didn't support the Sonics, greed got in the way.  I think Seattle is an EXCELLENT market for hockey.

What would you want the nickname to be?

Seattle _____

Las Vegas _____

I'd say:

Seattle Storm & Las Vegas Gamblers (really, there is nothing else I could think of...)

Would anybody consider the following taunt, which is just as common on school yards as it is on a professional field, to be about sexual orientation if it were directed at Sam?

"You hit like a girl!"

I'm sure some folks would say it is, despite the fact that this phrase is used to attempt to demasculate an opposing male player at ALL levels of play.

There were two girls in the LLWS this year.  One represented her entire country.  These girls were the 18th and 19th girls to compete in the LLWS.  I really don't see why we're STILL focusing on one girl, not the other as well, instead of the team.

It wasn't just ESPN.  The Today Show, GMA, etc.  ALL of the news cycle shows had that agenda, and quite frankly, it pisses me off.  How can we eradicate racism and sexism if the "un-biased" news shows are forcing stories that are clearly racist and sexist, and running them under the guise of "progression," down our pie-holes?

This will wake you up, unless you're CC!

WHO CARES!  1) it's pre-seaon.  2) all that matters is where you are at the end of the season. 

Take care of you're crap, and everything will fall into place.  Especially since it's TOSU we're talking about... not Duke Football...

AB, I'm not sure you properly conveyed your feelings... tell us how you REALLY feel, for once...

Comment 14 Aug 2014

I kept waiting for him to end that statement with a low growl of "Bonzai" because who DIDN'T watch that flick!?

Jay Mariotti has been off of ESPN for 4 years.

It still doesn't excuse the fact that he had multiple run-ins while employed there and it took them 3 years to finally say "enough is enough" and canned him.

That was partly why I listed him as an example.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

Because ESPN doesn't care how horrible you are as a coach or person...

Examples: Stephen A Smith is still employed despite being outwardly racist and insensitive to DV; Matthew Barnaby was FINALLY let go after multiple DV charges; Jay Mariotti was FINALLY let go after a few too many run-ins for DV and alcohol abuse

Also, ESPN isn't governed by the NCAA.

EDIT: DV in this instance is shorthand for Domestic Violence, not down votes, just in case folks are confused.

He was on my Mt. Rushmore of Comedians to See Live.  I was surprised by my parents in 2001, my 21st birthday, when they presented me with two tickets to see Robin Williams at the Palace Theatre.  It was an amazing show.  Even his bombs kind of got a nervous chuckle.  RIP Mr. Williams.
