  1. Damn, dawg...this kinda cut me deep. But I'll be damned if this isn't true.

    Anyone else low key bummed out baseball's over for the season? I know this happens every year but I always get a little sad when I reach for the radio to find a ball game and realize there aren't anymore until spring.

    If the Astros didn't leave so many men on base in Game 6, there wouldn't have been a game 7. If the Dodgers didn't leave so many men on base in game 7, they would be the champions right now. Don't. Leave. Men. On. Base.

    Boy the Astros are really wishing they didn't leave all those men on base a few innings ago.
  7. Harvey Weinstein, Fired Amongst Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Exactly - just the beginning of a boldfaced, blatant backlash. I've already seen it on the internet's dregs (i.e. screenshots of alt-right and MRA forums) but the link between there and the "mainstream" is getting shorter and shorter.
  8. Harvey Weinstein, Fired Amongst Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I'm late to this thread but I've started browsing and saw this post. Don't be fooled, folks - this is still a deeply patriarchal society with a woefully unbalanced power structure which favors wealthy men (especially straight men of European descent). Don't let alt-right and "anti-SJW" goons tell you otherwise - this is a problem not to be taken lightly. I don't know what the male-to-female ratio is on this board but I encourage everyone (especially cis-men) around these parts to do something we haven't been doing much of: listening to survivors of sexual violence. This is happening to about one in three women around the globe as well as about one in six men. The actual rate is probably much higher than this. Most of the women in my life are survivors - though some of them have been reluctant to admit that what happened to them was wrong "Oh, my boss just make a pass at me. It's not that big a deal." "He just groped me a little bit - he was just drunk." "Yeah, I mean, he grabbed my ass but it was a different time." "He was young - he didn't completely understand that kissing me like that wasn't okay. Hormones, you know?" What's even more incredible is witnessing survivors talk about their trauma among themselves - swapping stories and laughing about things that, as an outsider, made me sick to my stomach and furious. I mean it ****ed them up and they're still dealing with some serious trauma (they probably always will) but they're still pushing forward despite it all - despite the events themselves (and yeah, these usually come in bunches) and the backlash they received because of it - from cops, from friends, from family, from schools, from churches, from everyone it seems. And you can I've contributed to this atmosphere which makes women feel unsafe. I was one of those "nice guys" who communicated in a manipulative way when I was a teenager and through my early-to-mid 20s. I'm not that far removed from having some pretty awful thoughts about people on the other end of the gender spectrum on a regular basis, despite knowing it was wrong and putting up a fight (albeit a weak one). It wasn't until the UC Santa Barbara shootings in 2014 that I finally saw the light about male privilege and the impact patriarchy has on everyone - myself (and other men) included. Watching Elliot Rodger's video sent ice water down my veins because I had said and thought some of the things he said verbatim. That could have been me. I could have killed those people - and all because I thought I was owed intimacy because I was a "nice guy." I've been doing a lot of thinking and reconsidering over the years about a lot of things (politics, religion, sexuality, gender identity, obligations to myself, my loved ones, and society and I've even been thinking a lot this football team that I've loved my whole life - though I won't go into that right now because I don't want to derail the thread). The person I was when I joined this forum seems like someone else entirely but I still recognize him and I don't like a lot of things about him. His words, even if he usually kept them to himself, contributed to this atmosphere. It contributed to those ghastly statistics I referenced above. And all I'm left asking is
  9. Thought I never got credentials to a Trump event, it was a no-win situation for the press. We report on him, we give him a platform to spew his nonsense but if we don't report on him, we're not only shirking a long-time responsibility (following the actions of a major candidate for President) but we'd be ignoring a serious problem, which is irresponsible reporting. Maybe this was inevitable. Maybe it wasn't. I don't know. But I'm glad I'm out of the reporting game now. I don't think I could be a conventional reporter anymore. The only papers I could report for now are the various Socialist/Communist rags but 1.) I'm not a Trotskiest (those folks love their newspapers) 2.) The Daily Worker went bust back in the 1950s 3.) The Catholic Worker barely exists

    I thought 2011's World Series was gonna be the best I'd ever see in my life. This one, though...this one is absolutely magnificent. Game 6s have a way of being dramatic (2011, 1991, 1977, 1975, etc.) so strap in, folks.

    Glad to see Kershaw come out and wreck shop in his first World Series appearance. I know he's been trying to shake off the "post-season choker" label for awhile.

    Welp - that didn't take long for the Dodgers.
  13. I mean, it's an understandable pick. For better or worse, he's one of those generational pop stars that will be remembered long after his career is over. Mind you, the latest time he took the Super Bowl Halftime Stage, it nearly destroyed said career but he sells records and will get eyes on the TV that don't usually watch football games. The halftime show isn't for football fans. If it were, they'd still have the Michigan or Grambling State bands playing (though the latter would be pretty bad ass since they can put on a damn good show). Now that I think about it - it's been 20 years since Grambling's band has taken the field on halftime! What the hell is up with that?! Is the audience so milquetoast and middle-of-the-road that they can't handle an HBCU Marching Band blowin' it up on national television?
  14. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Did a random Google search for the notoriously awful 1968 Eagles (maybe I needed to console myself a little) and then did a search for their notoriously awful coach, Joe Kuharich. Wanna know the first person listed under "people also search for?" You guessed it!
