I seem to recall hearing that flip phones became very popular with Hollywood actors and actresses after so many had their naked pictures posted on line last year.

I always wonder, if these folks are really privy to such personal information, why do they go around telling other people?  That said, I know we all want Braxton to get back to 100% and stay there, so I'll admit I'm as interested as anyone else.  So thanks to the the OP for posting it.

The skeletons in the closets right here...

...not to mention the unmentionables lol

I saw that, and I completely agree with you Cleveburg.  So I would not blame anyone who favors a suspension.  

I can't for the life of me figure out why some players are penalized and not others.  Olynyk's mugging of Kevin Love was atrocious, I don't know how someone could watch that and not think it was intentional,.

I'm confused, are you agreeing with SlumLord?  It sounds like you're citing information that supports what he said. Which, BTW, I do agree with.  Gun control laws only make things easier for criminals, it seems.

Although, there are sports that involve shooting guns, even in the Olympics.  At least, there used to be.  

I guess the moderators will sort it out.

I could be mistaken, but I think the OP was only guilty of promoting someone else's business because he likes it, and thinks others in northeast Ohio would too.

Personally, I am against people being allowed to conceal cell phones.

I've been on both ends of a loaded gun

I have only ever been on one end.  Someone else was aiming it.

Funny you should say that, my wife has strictly BANNED bleach at our house, as it is EXTREMELY dangerous in the laundry room.

Ok I'll admit I thought it was funny when they put an effigy of a UCLA football player in a wheelchair and rolled him out onto the field during their halftime performance after the lid blew off the "handicapped parking" scandal in Westwood back in '99.  Somehow that wasn't much of an infraction as far as the NCAA was concerned, I guess there were no tattoos involved.

No other Barry Bonds haters here?  Or am I just the first one to chime in.

Disliked him way before he got "big".  Loved watching him in the '90 playoffs against the Reds, when he tried time and again to run on Paul O'Neill's arm, and got gunned down every time.  Precious memory.

Fisk was just doing his job.  My gripe is with the media, both print and television.  It's no coincidence that ESPN is halfway between Boston and New York, of all places, and it still seems like they broadcast every game the Yankees and Red Sox play, regardless of the standings.  They're on the schedule just about every other week, am I right?

Not saying there is never any mention of the Big Red Machine, but considering how talented they were, it's not much.  Of course, a lot of that is due to anti-Pete Rose sentiment, and make no mistake there was plenty of that around long before he got into trouble with Giamatti.  BTW, anyone care to guess where ole Bart was from?

Comment 15 May 2015

At last, someone has been paying attention, thank you Onion.

I do know the Reds won that Series, but how many people would be surprised to learn that?  It took the Sox another 29 years to finally break the Curse of Ruth, and during that time the very Northeast-centric Big Sports Media replayed Fisk's homer over and over again, as Boston fans had not much else to talk about during those years.  

Has there ever been a moment in the history of sports that was so celebrated and yet so meaningless?

BTW, if I was Uncle Fester (you know, that guy who bought the LA Clippers for Two Billion Dollars), I would have my team watch the seventh game of that '75 Series before Sunday's game in Houston.  The Reds were behind late, and on the road, but never panicked and came back to win it.  (Their bushwacking of the Yankees the following October has been similarly forgotten by ESPN and its ilk.)

Try putting a forward slash (/) at the end of the URL.  That worked for me on one occasion, but I'm not sure what's going on either.

I think last time I posted a Youtube, I used my iPad, and it didn't appear to have worked, there was just blank space where the video should have been. But when I viewed the page using my laptop the video was there.

Sweet!  I've been jonesing for one of these for a little while.  But my 22 in Weber has a cast iron cooking grate, so I'm set.  I know, I'm sounding like a broken record, but I really like it.
