I didn't even know that LSU story happened until this article. Crazy how these things have been swept under the rug.
Agree on Miracle, and I don't think it's close. And this coming from someone who wasn't even alive then. If I could go back in time and watch one sporting event live, that would be it. It meant so much more than just a win in the Olympics. And that fact that it was a bunch of college kids that beat a professional Russian team that had been playing together for years makes it all the more incredible.
That's where they sent him, though. Who knows, with the writing of the last few seasons.
Yeah, he tweeted out a headshot a few weeks ago. I'm betting it will be out sometime in late summer/early fall.
I think Edmure is at Casterly Rock living comfortably as a prisoner per his arrangement with Jaime Lannister. Riverrun went to one of the Freys after Edmure handed it over in S5.
The power play the last 2 games has been really good. The pp where Dutchy scored in game 3 was maybe the most dominant I have ever seen a pp for the Jackets. Game 4's pp was pretty good. They got lots of looks and chances, they just didn't bury them. As far as dumping it in, yup, that our MO. They just need to be patient and let Boston make mistakes tomorrow. We played right into their game last night and they jumped all over it. I think we are pretty evenly matched with Boston, but we gotta play our game in order for it to be that way, which they didn't last night.
I think we played better than Boston for more of games 2 and 3. Game 1 was about even, and we were one dumb mistake away from possibly having a chance to win the series last night. Last night, though, Boston was a step ahead all game. The first 5 minutes, it looked like we just wanted to get big hits to get back for the rat's sucker punch in game 3. They didn't play their game at all, and as a result, they were down 2 goals 5 minutes in. If they can get back to their game, be patient, play physical but not overly aggressive, I think we can do it. If we lose tomorrow, though, we are in serious trouble.
That's where I sat for the first 50 minutes, haha. The last 10 all I could do was pace the floor.
NWA was electric last night. Man, I hope they can finish the job tomorrow night. Columbus deserves to celebrate that win at home.
Agreed, Ib. Once Savvy scored, it felt like they were gonna win it. Even after we got the 4 minute minor. Gutsy win, and one that hopefully gives them the momentum to get over that series hump. If they play like they did in the 2nd and 3rd last night, I don't know that there's a team that can beat them.
I guess I'm in the minority who enjoyed the season finale. I liked that the big episode was the penultimate episode and this one dealt with the fallout from that a bit. That formula worked well in early seasons and works well on GoT. Some great stuff with Carol and Lydia. Also liked the Die Hard 2 icicle kill that Daryl had. As for the threat of the Whisperers, it is that quarry filled with walkers. They have thousands of walkers that they can steer towards any of the communities. Not only that, but there will be Whisperers among the walker herd that will be next to impossible to pick out in a group that large. As good as our survivors have become at taking out walkers - even big groups of them - this herd is on a whole other level.
Last night was a night where I wish I could come in with no knowledge of the comics. My sister-in-law and her husband were in absolute shock when it happened. I feel like the writers did a great job throughout the episode of teasing the death of different characters for those who had read the comics. The scene with them fighting back at the end was quite poignant, and Siddiq's speech was great. What Alpha meant to divide the communities is the thing that will bring them together to fight.
Some of the edits and cuts were not very good, but I disagree about not having much to do with the current season. Michonne has been cold, mean, and as a viewer, downright frustrating when dealing with her friends after the time jump. I thought this gave a very valid reason for her being so withdrawn and mistrusting.
I liked the episode and thought there were some really good moments of dialogue. Loved the Negan-Michonne scene, and also enjoyed the conversations Judith had throughout the episode. Really looking forward to next week.
