  1. You know what? I'd be a-okay with that, too. God that is miserable. I was talking with my dad awhile back about the Senators' last game at RFK and how heartbroken he was. Thankfully the Rangers were pretty much a non-factor for decades so he didn't have to deal with that. Yeah, you'd think someone would have done that already. I mean, the Yankees of the 1980s weren't this awful and Major League Baseball stepped in and told George Steinberenner to "go to timeout" which pretty much saved the franchise. I'm amazed "THE SHIELD" has allowed this to go on.
  2. I can only imagine what it must be like - Cleveland native and Browns fan - watching the Ravens have the kind of run they've had. I know they got to keep their colors and history but they know what's up. Those two Super Bowls and all those division titles would have wrecked me. At least the Colts were decent enough to stay mediocre to awful until Baltimore got a team again (which, of course, was the old Browns). Cleveland has to watch this year in and year out.
  3. Now that I live in Pennsylvania the last thing I need are the Eagles going to another Super Bowl. If the Vikings defense can keep Drew Brees in check (for the most part), I really hope they can do the same to Nick Foles.

    Guess its been taken down. If it were still 2008 - that'd be a nice way to link to a Rickroll. I would have fallen for it.
  5. The Official 2017 Game Day Thread

    The more I think about last night's game, the more I realize how strange it was - or at least, my response to it. As I mentioned, I was with my buddies last night following a meeting and when I checked my phone, it was halftime and the score was 17-0. My first thought was "this is gonna be good." Now, I didn't see the first half but not too long ago, 17-0 at halftime meant you were finished. I should have gone home then and there. But I just knew it was gonna be good. I didn't even consider the teams playing or the players in that initial moment. Just the score 17-0 led me to think it was going to be an incredible game. And it was! That ending will live on in Minnesota sports history forever. I'm glad I was there to see it. But when the Bills were down 17-0 to the 'Skins in Super Bowl XXVI - the consensus seemed to be that they were finished. But waking up this morning, something about it seemed strange to me. I knew, without a doubt in my mind I had to make a bee line for the bar because the score was 17-0, not in spire of the score being 17-0. I dunno, maybe it's because of the changing nature of football but it's almost as if I've come to expect the late game comeback in general. It used to be that you'd expect that from certain quarterbacks or teams but now it's like it's become the norm, especially in the post season.

    When I saw that 17-0 halftime score after me and my buddies said goodbye, I had a feeling it was gonna be a good one. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I know the Vikings don't make anything easy for their fans but I knew it was going to be a great game. Y'all, I haven't watched a full NFL game since the halfway point of the season but ho-lee **** that was...that was incredible.

  9. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Can someone explain to me why the idea that specialists aren't important enough to deserve high honors, like placement in the Hall of Fame, continues to circulate? I was watching this video on Steve Tasker, the ace specialist for the Bills back in the 80s and 90s and there were these folks commenting on it that said the same things "oh, well, if you put guys like Tasker in the Hall of Fame, then it makes the Hall of Fame mean less" or whatever. If specialists weren't important, we'd still have offensive tackles and halfbacks kicking field goals and we'd still have quarterbacks doubling as punters. I mean, why not, right? Tom Brady's the best (and as far as I know, the only) quick kicker in the league. Why hasn't Belichick put Brady in as the team's starting punter as well? It isn't as if punters can't give your defense excellent field position, right? It isn't as if punting makes you vulnerable to injury. Give yourself extra roster spots and double up on special teams! I don't know - that kind of thing bugs me. It's like when people downplay the importance of a bassist in a rock band.
  10. Lets keep laughing at the Browns, while we can

    If team leadership looked anything like that - they'd always be forgiven, no matter what.
  11. Thanks, Mom and Dad! Not only am I inhering a nightmarish, international economic landscape that'll look like the Gilded Age on steroids while the eastern seaboard is slowly submerging underwater and the chickens of generations of imperialism come to roost but I'm actually on track to have a shorter life span than you are! Greatest country in the world, baby! WOOHOO! USA! USA! USA!

  13. 2018 Washington Nationals - "The Window"

    I guess being a D.C. sports fans makes you expect the worst. As long as they can stay above .500 during those years and remain in the hunt through the season, I'll be happy. Still...the Senators staying and having a winning team would have been pretty bad ass. Can you imagine RFK hosting a decisive ALCS or World Series game?
  14. 2018 Washington Nationals - "The Window"

    Lately, I've been lulling myself to sleep dreaming of an alternative universe where the Senators stayed in Washington and built a winning franchise in the 1970s and beyond instead of bolting for Texas because if there are lean years awaiting the Nationals, its gonna be hard getting through them.
