Couldn't agree more! As frustrating as it's been being on the other side of these matchups, I'm really enjoying being in our current role. Let's just hope we can finish off the Western Conference in our last year there!
|17 hours 51 min ago||Exactly -- more like picking||
Exactly -- more like picking off a pass from a team still throwing it deep. Letting up in those situations bites you more than just playing through the finish line.
|17 hours 58 min ago||Even as a former goalie, I||
Even as a former goalie, I say no. Not like throwing a bomb up by two touchdowns. It's easy to lose track of time as you're playing, and I've seen a comeback of two goals in as little as 25-30 seconds, so no hard feelings in finishing it off.
|1 week 3 days ago||Well, that, and 22||
Well, that, and 22 drinks..."Lewis said he drank six glasses of wine, 10 beers and six shots of various other alcohols that night."

WOW! Ugly finish but I'll take it!
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||As a former goalie, I can't||
As a former goalie, I can't stand how he just sits down in the net when they are behind the goal. That getslaff goal was pretty terrible IMO.

Watching this overtime is going to feel like I have my eyes closed and I'm just waiting to get kicked in the nuts.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Well. Shit.||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||+1 the whole situation||
+1 the whole situation couldn't have worked out better for the Broncos following the playoff win. I was afraid they were stuck with him for a few years after that.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Not sure I completely follow||
Not sure I completely follow the sentence, but the Wings in the Western Conference is dumb because of travel/time zone/historical rivalry reasons, not because of competitive balance. The rest I agree with, though.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||On the other hand, having so||
On the other hand, having so many people pestering the coaches to keep/play him might have actually helped him progress. Hard to say which would have had more of an impact, though, and we won't know now. Just disappointed it's Jacksonville/LA.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I don't know.||
I don't know. Non-championship-winning streak aside, I don't know that I'd put the Cubs lower on the list of worst franchises. As both a Cubs and Lions fan, I actually have a lot more faith in the Cubs as an organization than I do the Lions. Rightly or wrongly, at least the Cubs are good at providing hope that we'll be better soon -- even if it never turns out that way.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Having the same thoughts.||
Having the same thoughts. Living in Denver, I do follow the Broncos, and it's frustrating to see the differences in how the organizations are run. The Broncos were terrible a couple years ago, with an idiot head coach who (among other things) wasted a first round pick on Tebow. But instead of just letting those two hang around and lead them into a decade of incompetence, they were both run out of town ASAP. I wish I had even the slightest hope the Lions would have done the same.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Same here. Was a slightly||
Same here. Was a slightly positive-leaning 'meh' coming into the day, but trading down to draft the 6th rated punter in the 5th round had me LOLing. Normally, I agree with the idea that these people are professional talent evaluators, and I'm just some knob on a couch, but this is the Lions we're talking about, so they're not getting the benefit of the doubt from me (I'm sure they're crushed).
No real enthusiasm in either direction, just have to wait and see and hope to be pleasantly surprised one of these years.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I agree with the sentiment,||
I agree with the sentiment, but let's be fair -- practice squad-level picks for most teams = starters for the Lions. :\
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Seems right. Plus, the Lions||
Seems right. Plus, the Lions are so good at finding hidden talent in the later rounds, why not get as many late-round picks as possible? /s
|3 weeks 6 days ago||On the plus side, they'll||
On the plus side, they'll probably be in LA in a year or two, so maybe it won't be the same crappy franchise he's playing for for most of his career.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||+1, every year I wish/hope||
+1, every year I wish/hope for a return to the old one.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Lol, well: 1) turning down||
Lol, well: 1) turning down Illinois last time didn't make him an unwanted has been; and 2) entirely possible his wife likes it where they are and helped talk him into staying.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Even worse! We generally get||
Even worse! We generally get most of our snow in March/early April here. Anyone who looked at any historical records could have seen that there is at least equal chance of blizzard vs. 60 and sunny conditions in Denver in March. Almost makes me think US Soccer was kind of hoping for this kind of weather.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||As a Colorado alumn, I have||
As a Colorado alumn, I have to bitch about our choice too. Christopher Meloni is OK, I guess, but I can't believe there's a person alive who thinks he cooler than Robert Redford (or a host of others).
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Awesome choice! "You're||
Awesome choice! "You're lying! I never hit you! You are tearing me apart, Lisa!"
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Especially with the B1G's||
Especially with the B1G's even revenue split. The Big XII didn't have equal revenue split, so even though the North was more powerful in the beginning, the money flowed south to Texas and Oklahoma at a disproportionate rate, and as the arms race began to heat up as we moved into the last decade, the southern schools were able to keep up at a rate that many in the north (Nebraska aside, but definitely a factor for Colorado and KState) could not.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||"Seriously how much revenue||
"Seriously how much revenue could be generated with tastefully executed ad revenue?"
You mean like a giant red Arby's logo all over the Big Chill signs/merchandise? I don't necessarily disagree with your point, I just have zero faith that's how it would be executed, and so I'll take the no advertising rule for as long as I can.

"I think the closest to a SB was the AFC Championship w/i Indy"
In an interesting almost story, the guy who nearly caught the hail mary from Harbaugh against Pittsburgh that would have sent Indy to the Super Bowl, Aaron Bailey, also went to Pioneer.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||A guy on the Colorado Rivals||
A guy on the Colorado Rivals board did this a few days ago. Don't want to repost his numbers, but the takeaway was that you are much more likely to be on one of these two teams if you were a 5* than a 4*, and more likely if a 4* than a 3*, etc. With the diffference in %s being about double (i.e. a little over 2% of the 5*s, 1% of the 4*s, etc.).

Please don't blame the iPhone. My girlfriend Siri works at Apple. She works a lot, though, so the iPhone is pretty much the only way we're able to communicate.

My favorite line so far (paraphrased from Deadspin comments):
"We're still not convinced Manti Teo exists"
