Tongue in cheek. Great to see Tom has a sense of humor about it. After sticking it to Goddell, he is having a good time.
So it's a semi-holiday and a slow day so I figured this may be a good day for an OT thread.
Background: Family of 4 (kids 8 & 11), looking to move into a bigger vehicle that can transport the 4 of us, sports equipment and the very occasional 2-3 additional people (kids friends, fam that's in town every 6-10 months). I don't intend for this to become a minivan VS. SUV debate, so I'll try to get this out of the way 1st. I don't think we need the minivan- I'm not opposed to it, but we just don't need to transport that much stuff/that many ppl on a regular basis. I am open to thoughts on this tho.
Really just trying to hash out the options in a 3rd row SUV/crossover: some are very cramped in the 3rd row like the Kia Sorrento or Hyundai Santa Fe, while others are bigger but may be pricier/guzzle gas more: Dodge Durango, Ford Flex, Honda Pilot, Buick Enclave. Looking at slightly used 3-4 y/o vehicles over the next 10 months.
Any thoughts on how you went through a similar decision process or general recs for or against specific brands in the 3rd row SUV category.
In addition, I was wondering how people thought about getting a luxury brand with fewer bells and whistles compared to an economy brand with a whistle or 2. Never really thought seriously about a luxury level vehicle purchase.
Bringing back a popular offseason feature even if it's not mine to bring back. Today's question: In a world where you could choose between totally autonomous and zero autonomy, and everything in between, and there are no restrictions on the road that might limit certain roads to autonomous cars only, how autonomous is your vehicle? Do you have a Google egg with no pedals or steering wheel? Or are cruise control and automatic transmissions for babies? When do you let the car take over, and when do you want to do the driving, and what features do you like and what can you happily ignore?
Good morning all you stupid idiots.
It's Valentine's Day. So text your significant other and make sure to swing by the store on your way home to get some chocolate and whatever flowers they have left (probably just a clump of ragweed with a bow on it). This PSA is my way of making sure you morans don't forget. You're welcome.
What's that? You remembered today and had something ready? Yeah right, buddy. I believe you...
In last week's quarterly earnings conference call, Bob Iger, Disney's CEO, said:
I think that in general, there is probably too much commercial interruption in television. It is a subject that has been discussed both on the ESPN front and on the ABC front, and it is something we will continue to look at. Particularly when you have got entrants in the marketplace that are offering programming that is not commercially interrupted.
I hope he is serious about that, because the games have become nearly unwatchable---and it isn't much better in the stadium, with the constant interruptions in play.
Lots of other interesting details about ESPN's partnerships with over-the-top providers (e.g. Sling) and vague chatter about a direct-to-consumer offering as a result of their stake in BAMtech, Major League Baseball's technology platform:
