Nothing spectacular tonight but enough different stuff to keep my interest. MSU-Illinois hoops right now on ESPN. Very ugly game but it was funny to watch Draymond Green get three fouls in the first ten minutes and Izzo freak out. Pistons getting beat by the Knicks on FSN. Red Wings play in Calgary starting at nine on FSN+. This is probably what I'll watch for the rest of the night. Some other basketball games, college and NBA ,are on. What's everybody else watching?
OT - Televised Athletic Events Open Thread
I'm going to finish lost tonight, 3 more episodes to go.
That's my favorite show ever but count me in the group that wished they hadn't seen the end.
SPOLIER ALERT: Don't read on if you don't want to know anything about how LOST ends.
Try watching the finale again. The first time I watched it I was disappointed with the finale.
Watching the second time I was able to get over the fact that there was so much techinical questions left unanswered. If you are a person who was into all of the mystery of the island and so forth then, I guess you will never be satisfied. I was intrigued by those aspects until the second time I watched the finale. I loved the show so much and loved the characters that I realized that it was about them and how they were all able to find each other in the end.
It was hard for me to be absolutely pissed because I loved the show so much. I can see where people would be pissed off about the finale though. There are some special short bonus things that are available online that kind of answer some of the questions.
I don't think I wanted the questions answered because the way it was written, there clearly were no good answers. They were making up the questions as they went. I wish the characters would have just died/got off the island and they would have just said, "Well, I guess it was all magic." The first few season were just so good. A white light is not an answer. Who ended up in the last scenes also made no sense. Sayid suddenly realize he loves Shannon more than his life long love?? It was completely pick and choose to satisfy fans.
The one technical thing that really, and I mean really, bothered me was Walt. He was such a big part of the early seasons and the producers didn't realize that kids grew up so they just stopped talking about him. I still loved the show but that and the religous parts of the finale really bug me for some reason.
I can totally understand where you are coming from.
My friend watched the entire thing a second time and he said that he noticed some things that he didn't see the first time.
I plan on watching the series again, but it is just a time commitment so I haven't started yet.
Yeah, I should definitely rewatch it. I just think the first three seasons were such a high point for network TV. I still enjoyed the other seasons more than anything else that was on at the time but they didn't live up to the first three, IMO.
The only season I actually saw on TV was the last season, the others I watched them all in marathon format on netflix.
I keep waiting for some more good news to get posted before tommorrow's NSD.
Can not make their bunnies. Worst, can I even call it shooting from that range, ever.
Lots of relevant college BB on tonight. Arkansas and Iowa State both play tough teams, wins for them would be nice. Virginia is beating Clemson right now, we want them to win for the same reason. Also, Wisconsin is losing to PSU in a game where Wisconsin is on pace to score about 23 points.
Definitely living up to its reputation tonight.
Izzo and MSU are overrated. Again.
Brandon Paul Will take this game over if the refs get outta his way.
My eyes are bleeding from watching this sparty game
or is MSU really struggling tonight? Watched about 10 minutes...couldn't take it anymore.
Based on the number of missed layups(which is a Sparty staple this year) I would say struggling. Who shoots less than 25%?? They're not taking a lot of threes to drag it down.
MSU and Illinois have combined for more turnovers than made buckets tonight. That should sum it up.
It is perplexing how MSU is still very much in this game despite one of the worst shooting nights I have seen from a team. Wouldn't be surprised to see them pull this off somehow.
Draymond Green coming up big again. Five points on six shots. Way to go buddy.
Edit: do not get injured though. Don't want to be a d-bag.
Izzo plays Green with the flu. He looks terrible and appears to injure his knee severely.
Hope he is ok . Great player. State loses brw.
This is the worst game I've ever seen. When does Illinois stop shooting threes? They're 2-15 and three straight possessions they've shot contested threes. The refs are calling it tight and they refuse to drive. This is an atrocity.
I can't take the new espn big ten announcing crew. That's all I've got.
Who doesn't like Mike Tirico?
And now Green is on the ground holding his knee...
Aaaand there go your points.
Aaaaaand there go more points.
The rules around here are simple: Stay classy. No cheering for injuries. No personal attacks.
Most of your points return on Valentine's Day. Last warning.
We're not talking about a goon like Gholston. (Not that I'd wish injury on Gholston, but the "karma" argument would make more sense.) Green's a good guy. Other than pick MSU over us, he hasn't done anything to make us dislike him.
Right after an Illinois bucket, Green went down clutching his left knee. Looked to be in a lot of pain. Could be a stinger. Might be something worse.
Love this one, gives me chills.
Every time! I've watched this thing probably over a hundred times, and each time is as good as the first.
Unless Paul goes for 30-40 like he did against OSU, I don't see how they beat us. Leonard can't finish an alley-oop and has 4 points.
Is parallel to SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy with Tirico playing Will Farrell's Trebek.
"Ill take "TheRapists" for 400 Alex!"
They're going to punish me by going to OT aren't they? I just want to watch the Red Wings but now I have to see how this ends.
Calgary is doin some ceremony, its buying us some time.
Was a remembrance ceremony for Brad McCrimmon. Ex-Flames player, Ex-Wing Assistant coach who died in September when his KHL Team's plane crashed.
He also played for the Wings, as well as the Bruins, Flyers, Whalers & Coyotes.
Yea I posted it when they were initially coming out after I flipped over to it for a second. After I saw what it was I immediately felt like a dick, my bad.
I get why everyone says it's good if Arkansas and Iowa State win, but at the same time, I think Michigan's finally at the point where no matter how the fringe teams we play do, we should make the tourney with a high seed assuming we take care of business. We have wins over enough top line or good teans like MSU, Wisconsin, even Memphis and Purdue, and the opportunity for more with Indiana, MSU again, OSU again, Illinois that we should make the tourney.
Saying that, I want teams like Arkansas and Iowa to lose. Just because I'm bitter that we lost to them. Yes I get this doesn't help us, and if this were last year I'd want them to win out, but at this point I feel comfortable saying that regardless of how they do, if we take care of business, we're in with a high seed.
It's not just about getting in the tourney, it's about getting as good a seed as we can. If a team like Iowa mails it in the rest of the season and finishes in last place, that could significantly hurt our résumé, causing us to slip in the seeding and get a tougher matchup.
Draymond Green looks to be hurt pretty bad. He can't even put pressure on his left knee. I actually feel bad for the kid if he's really hurt.
Illinois is handing this one away.
Noone wants to win this game.
Wow, Appling got a pretty good look, he probably should've made that.
1-0 Red Wings. Cory Emmerton
Emmerton! 1-0 Wingers
abdelkader, one good thing to come out of state. Walk it off sir.
Abdelkader. You are a beast! Also, nice save JIMMAH!
I feel like Jimmy Howard is the best, least spectacular goalie. He's super quick and limits his mistakes so he's always in position to make the "easy" save.
play for the Wings
Why are the Wings on FSN+ and not on FSN? It seems like if the Wings or Pistons conflict the Pistons always get FSN. Just generallt curious.
I feel sorry for Draymond as a player, but it could not have happened to a better team.
I didn't see the game - how did MSU shoot 24% from the floor? They were the most efficient offensive team in the league coming in.
Kipper with a huge save on Cleary wow
That MSU-Illinois game set back basketball for 10 years. Or if it was the SEC in football, it was the new era of college hoops.
Ten seconds after turning on the hockey game I see the game get stopped with the puck floating around in the blue area in clear view of the ref, good to know the officiating in the NHL is still garbage.
Flames tie it up.
Hudler. 2-1 Wings. Lets go.
Aw, c'mon, let 'em go!
4-on-3 PP for the Wings.
Some good PP chances on that 4v3 but no goals.
3-1 Red Wings. Looks like that should be the game. Go Wings.
Miller, full strength goal.
Wings get a road win!
Another win for Jimmy Howard. Nice to see a road win for the Wings.
