  1. 2018 Washington Nationals - "The Window"

    It's good they're not relying on Glover for anything. His healthy presence would be a luxury at this point rather than a necessity.
  2. It would be nice to Wayne LaPierre indicted. And convicted. And jailed.

    ^^^ That’s good to hear. Doo seems to rely on the fastball just a bit too much.
  4. My friend Jkam

    Good hearing from you, Die Hard.
  5. I love this quote from Al Franken when he was in the Senate: "Here's the thing you have to understand about Ted Cruz. I like Ted Cruz more than most of my other colleagues like Ted Cruz. And I hate Ted Cruz." Apparently Ted Cruz is a dick who doesn't play well with others.. Anybody who meets him takes an almost instant dislike toward him. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, twa is a big fan.
  6. Remember the bogus "how did she win 7 of 8 coin flips?" during the caucuses? That was perpetuated by Dmitri and Ivan and Svetlana long after it was otherwise explained as false.
  7. My friend Jkam

    This is difficult for me to write. Back in 2003, my best friend told me about a website where Redskins fans went to talk about the team and about other stuff. I didn't know a damned thing about message boards, but I took his advice and went to this place called Extremeskins. I haven't left. Jkam was Jack's screen name. He didn't post a whole lot, but he was a Redskins fan to his core. He was a season ticket holder, and had been going to games since he was a kid. His dad had season tickets all the way back to ****ing Griffith Stadium. Jack and his wife and kids welcomed us to our new neighborhood when our young family moved in, and we've been friends ever since, for more than 25 years. And he introduced my to this virtual neighborhood called Extremeskins. He was a kind soul, a damned good lawyer, a lifelong DC area-sports fan, and was always even-keeled even as he fought a 6 year battle against a ****ed up disease that ultimately took his life one week ago. I never heard a word of despair or bitterness from him even though he was dealt a crappy hand that ended his life too soon. Even at the end, his focus was on his family and his friends, not himself. Do me a favor. Take stock of your life this weekend. Take a moment to enjoy that beer you are drinking, and feel lucky you have the life you do. Don't take anything for granted. And even though you didn't know him, raise a toast for my friend.

    Man, you should do a spring training trip. If you live in a cold weather climate, it's like an escape. And you get so close to the players you can hear the chatter and them joking around. Talk about sights and sounds. It brings you back to Little League. Guys tossing the ball around, doing drills. You see them up close and relaxed and their personalities come through. And all under crystal blue skies and 70 degree weather.
  9. And if you read the indictment, much of the Sanders getting "railroaded by the DNC" crap was disinformation by the Russians.
  10. Mass Shooting on the Las Vegas Strip

    Popeman, thank you for your honest, thoughtful posts in this thread. ~~~~~ I just think it's time to rethink our relationship with a tool that, at the flick of a finger - can take a person's life.
  11. I read that it was this guy, Richard Pinedo, who supplied the indicted Russians with fake U.S. identification information they could use in their meddling activities.
  12. Waiting for a statement from the White House concerning this indictment and its detailed, specific charges. Not holding my breath, though.
  13. Mass Shooting on the Las Vegas Strip

    Nope. Just that one amendment.
  14. Mass Shooting on the Las Vegas Strip

    Easy. Take away the right to own a gun. Make it a privilege. Abolish the 2nd Amendment, an anachronism the meaning of which, in any case, has been ****ized by the NRA for its own ends. Goodness me. Stay strong through your trials and tribulations.
  15. Reading through the indictment. On page 13, it refers to the defendants working with "a real U.S. person affiliated with a Texas-based grassroots organization." I wonder who that is.
