    Save us, Elias, you're our only hope - The 2019 Orioles

    I don't think he's got a ton of trade value. A good reliever has got to be able to perform in pressure situations and he's shown that he's not always reliable in that area.

    He's certainly erased all doubts.
  3. Yeah, I could have done without this one @Cooked Crack

    ****ing terrible. Givens is a 6th or 7th inning guy. I understand he's in the closers spot cause he's the best reliever, but he's certainly not great.
  5. Agreed, the originals do deserve better. So if this new Terminator movie is indeed a reboot of sorts, I hope it does well. Curious to see how they work Arnold back into the storyline.

    Workout Thread III

    To offset brother @Chew I've been eating nothing but meat. It's been awesome. No bubble gut, no mud butt. No farting. Energy levels have been great. Head feels clear.
  7. This looks like it could be good. I like Mackenzie Davis a lot. She was great in Halt and Catch Fire. I know what I'm about to say is going to ruffle some feathers because I know some are going to take it the wrong way and that's fine. I also don't give a Frenchman's ****. I'm tired of the trend in Hollywood of reboots with female lead actresses. And that's not meant to be a sexist statement (even though some of you will undoubtedly take it that way), I'm not saying I don't like female actresses, I'm not saying I don't like female characters. Lord knows Sarah Connor is one of the biggest badasses in any movie, T1 and T2, she's fantastic. I'm saying if your reboot relies on promoting a woman as a way to sell tickets and gain interest and doesn't have a good storyline or plot to stand on, that's sexist in and of itself. Has this strategy ever worked? The Ghostbusters remake was terrible. The new MIB looks terrible. If the only original (let's face it, it's not original) thing you can do is put a female in a lead role of an established franchise as a way to generate interest again and ignore all the other things that a movie needs to be great...that is weak and borderline insulting to anyone that has a bit of discerning taste. Did Ghostbusters need a reboot anyway? Was that necessary? Does MIB? What's next, a reboot of Back to the Future with Lily Tomlin playing Doc Brown and Millie Bobbie Brown playing Marty? I know Hollywood is in it to make money and if they're making money off stuff like that, well, mission accomplished. Doesn't mean it was good. I am hoping the story for this Terminator movie is fantastic because if all you're doing is trotting out Mackenzie Davis, Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and slapping James Cameron's name on it as a producer (not director, but he does have writing credits here) in hopes that they're reviving a dead franchise...well, it needs more than that. Mackenzie Davis is a great actress, hopefully she's got a good storyline and plot to work with. T1 and T2 are classics and if they're inserting this into that storyline and acting like the others didn't happen, it needs to be awesome on all levels.

    As terrible as this team is, I'd much rather watch this team than the 2018 version. This team gives effort which to a certain degree makes up for the mistakes that they make and the lack of talent. From game #2 in 2018, they just sleepwalked through the entire rest of the season. I miss Jones, Machado, but thats about it.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    Feel that it's gotta be announced here in the coming days.

    Bucks are ****ing this up. Yep. I don't think it'll be particularly close with either team out of the East, either.

    With self righteous pride, I meant. No self righteous pride about being a middle age guy.

    Trying to wean myself off sodas. Successfully replaced regular sodas with diet sodas. Which ain't great, but it certainly isn't as bad as the regular stuff, especially when the goal was trying to lower sugar intake. Still need something carbonated, still need something sweet. This isn't ideal but it's not bad, I'm assuming it's better than a diet Coke. Not concerned with where the "natural flavors" come from. In regards to your sister in law, never have understood the types of people that need to advertise what they're putting into their body. And if people are using the words like "all natural" "mindfully sourced" "thoughtfully sourced" and other stuff in regards to food, I hope they slam their hand in a car door.
