  1. Movie trailer voice guy:In a forum where numbers dwindled...where the last action on the first page was almost a month ago...one man...stood to rise above it all... and become...King of Off Topic 2010!~*~Coming soon~*~
  2. And we're back.For a season opener, I thought it left a lot to be desired. I'm going to need a whole lot more Peter and Walter soon.
  3. Cliff Lee almost took a broken bat to the face last night (it nicked his ear).Hey baseball, no hurry on keeping your players safe. I mean, what are the chances something bad happens again?
  4. Apparently he copped to it just two minutes ago. And even referenced "mutually assured destruction." Maybe he's reading this thread.I find the fact that he was a political science major to be...amusing.
  5. Fantasy baseball is everywhere. Kim Jong-Il is in a NL-only keeper league. (Team name: License to Il.)Fantasy leagues—which first surged in the 1980s—are big in football and basketball, too. They're part of an enhanced sports experience that includes video games which let you run, move, and even celebrate as real players—so you can feel like the star. It's as if we want more and more to "own" the sports thing, even if we're not a bit athletic. If that Avatar movie ever becomes reality, kids will slip into NBA bodies rather than blue skin.Mitch, don't frighten the old people who are reading thi
  6. Is somebody going to explain the racial component of the word uppity?

  10. Yeah, that should do the trick in driving speedz away.
  11. 1.) I think it would be tough to ask for money when you spent it on bachelor party stuff.2.) Sounds good to me.3.) I think you stole that from Star Wars.
  12. Cool Hand Luke!I saw Butch Cassidy maybe 15 years ago. I remember I liked it, but couldn't really talk about it in much detail.Also: The Hustler and The Sting, of course.
  13. So great.From the Eckstein article:Just a few other numbers to throw at you, so you can get the full picture: Eckstein's Hustle is a perfect 100 (for the MLB-record 9th year in a row). His Grit is a 16.6 — meh — but his Having-Overcome-Obstacles clocks in at 41.4771 on the accurate-to-four-decimal-points Lathingham-Norbley Having-Overcome-Obstacles scale. And his Guts grades out at a respectable VVS1. (Remember — Guts are graded on the same scale as diamond clarity).and:Eckstein said that, like his strong points, the Padres' strengths don't translate to paper.The Padres' strengths don't transl
  14. Me too. The only time I wish it had video is whenever they play the bear on the trampoline.I thought Simmons' line in oddsmakers, "50% because who the hells knows," was funny.
