    Thank ya! And since you were so nice in welcoming me, I figured I'd leave this:
  2. [Anglo-Celtic] Yeah, why don't you try that out on actual Celts in Scotland and Ireland still dealing with the impact of English imperialism and second-class citizenship. I'm sure they'd be delighted to talk about your "league."
  3. "I disagree with your enthusiastic dispersion of fascist and quasi-fascist ideology but I will defend your right to do your friends beat the **** out of me for being black/leftist and force my LGBTQIA+ friends to assimilate or stuff themselves back into the closet." Am I winning at "civility" yet?

    So, earlier this week, I resolved that I was actually gonna make a real effort to follow non-World Cup Soccer. I already support D.C. United but that's mostly by default. Maybe I'll get more enthused about them if I actually went to a game. I just couldn't get into it watching it on TV. Then I remembered Celtic FC exists. Yeah, I think I found my team. And I know this may come across as glory hunting but reading up on their history and fan culture, I actually felt excited about supporting a club (though I also have a heart for Liverpool FC)
  5. Just a quick reminder that a coalition of organizations in and around D.C. are organizing a counter-demonstration to United the Right II in the District (which, as far as I know, is still on for August 12th). Relevant link below. If you're able to show up, please do.

    So what's the "one big thing" you all will be looking out for as the back end of the season unfolds? For me, it is still Bryce Harper. I don't feel too concerned about the bullpen now, especially since Strasburg is coming back and he's usually raring to go after a DL stint. Despite the position player's streakiness at the plate, I feel like we've got enough solid hitting to put us back in the thick of it (especially if Soto, Eaton, and Rendon keep doing what they're doing). But I dunno if we get over the hump with a struggling Bryce Harper. Atlanta and Philadelphia are playing really well right now and we can't count on them burning out.

    Tried looking for pictures of Wrigley Field All I found were salt mines.

    Yes - keep him on the west coast. Please.

    Yes, that was one of the most exciting HRD I've seen in awhile. That was right up there with Griffey turning his hat backwards at Fenway Park.

    I believe in you, Mr. Hooper.

    Yeah, that would pretty much seal the deal for the East, I reckon. It's not like they're hurting at the hot corner but their guys aren't play at Manny's level.
  13. 2018 MLB Thread

    Yeah, the power balance in the MLB has shifted decidedly to the AL. Also, ICYMI: So - where's Manny going?
  14. NFC isn't going to be a picnic this year, man. Lot of teams trending upward (Jimmy Garoppolo may singlehandedly guide the 49ers back to relevancy)

    So, now that the World Cup's over - how about that MLS? I'm trying to follow it more closely now that D.C. United has that new stadium and I do wanna get more engaged with soccer. I know it isn't the best by any stretch of the imagination (cue footage from the Trinidad & Tobago match) but I might as well follow the big domestic league, warts and all.
