  1. The Own3d Thread.(Keep it clean)

    Philly TV station inexplicably airs a Roy Halladay tribute that consists of him giving up homer after homer: https://deadspin.com/nbc-philadelphia-airs-roy-halladay-tribute-video-of-him-1820253741
  2. I always had a plan that one day I'd get two dogs and name them: Diesel (for obvious reasons) Nyquist (jointly after the Detroit Red Wings player Gustav Nyquist and Bell Labs scientist Harry Nyquist) This was before the famous horse named Nyquist came along and won the Kentucky Derby.
  3. Good Memories: September 19, 2005 - Monday Night Miracle

    I was living in St. Louis- first job out of college; my skins fanhood waned a bit during college, so I was watching but not as intently as I did growing up. By the end of the 4th quarter, I was transformed back into my 10-year-old self. My roommates were not skins fan so I got on AOL Instant Messenger afterwards (remember that?) and starting IMing people from High School- people I probably hadn't spoken to in YEARS.
  4. I seriously must've missed the boat on Pixar movies. I had no idea what I was getting into. I actually sat there wondering why they'd force a child to watch something like that. Especially the one scene that was insanely depressing.
  5. OMG, when I visited Japan I actually stayed next to the train station from the true story that Hachi is based on. There's a giant statue of him outside which is a well-known landmark in the area. I watched the movie on a plane knowing exactly what was going to happen and it still blew me away. Another one I didn't expect- Inside Out; especially because it's a kids movie that my niece made me watch.

    Why would the parent not let his/her kid go-fart at The Zone Adventure Center? It's better than go-farting all over the house after school. This seems like a win for everyone (well... except the minimum wage staff at The Zone).
  7. Write a letter telling her how much she's meant to him. She's about to have a lot of free time on her hand and ample time for her brain to wander into things she really doesn't want to think about. She'll keep and cherish that letter long after the cancer is gone.
  8. There's certain establishments that I can't disassociate from famous crimes, and for that reason, I'll never be able to eat at those places. Bojangles -> West Memphis Three Ponderosa Steakhouse -> DC Sniper
  9. 2017 Baltimore Orioles Thread - We suck again!

    Zach Britton is gonna give me a heart attack at 36 if he keeps "saving" games like this.
  10. Yes, my comment was in response to an individual poster from this board who didn't agree with that assessment.
  11. Seems irrelevant to my comment. I said nothing about Elway entering or not entering the political process. I just said that's ridiculous to differentiate him and Kaepernick by saying his letter was "invisible" whereas Kaepernick's actions were "visible" If it was invisible, Elway could've written the letter on a blank piece of paper or a bar napkin for all I care. He chose the Broncos letterhead for a reason.
  12. Kiss Cam SCANDAL!!!??!

    Think again. This is serious.
  13. Kiss Cam SCANDAL!!!??!

    I think its part of a bigger coverup. I was at a baseball game a few years ago where the scoreboard told us to get loud and then showed a noisemeter that proceeded to break as we cheered and got louder. The thing is- it happened again a few innings later. Did they fix/replace the broken one between innings? Maybe they kept a backup noisemeter? Who's profiting off of this?
  14. If Elway's actions aren't visible then why did he even bother to write the letter?
  15. The Hulk's been pretty friendly with the Iron Sheikh in recent years- I'm not sure that's going to play well with this administration.
