|2 days 4 hours ago||This was my first full year of following the EPL.||
I decided to finally get on board. I'm glad I did. I even chose a primary rooting interest -- Crystal Palace, by sheer virtue of the fact that I liked the name; it called to mind a reference from one of my favorite movies of all-time, Wargames. An interesting season for the ol' Eagles, that's for sure. It sure started well and good enough...
Anyway...I couldn't help but also heartily root for Leicester this season. They were truly fun to watch, and this is coming from someone who is almost a complete novice to the game itself. So many nuances are lost on me -- but hey, I'll learn.
I'm also really looking forward to Chelsea v. Real Madrid at the Big House. Should be fun!
|2 days 14 hours ago||I need more proof.||
I don't know, man. I won't be convinced Ramsay is that bad of an individual until we see him actually consume another human being. Oh wait...didn't he already do that with (at least part of) Theon?
|2 days 14 hours ago||If that ending took anyone by surprise...||
...well, I don't know what to tell ya. They certainly weren't gonna do all that buildup for nothing. Although, I admit, it would have been rather amusing (and a huge kick in the nuts to the fans), had they faded to black and rolled the credits as Davos left the room and the door shut. Even George R.R. himself isn't that sadistic. ;-)
Loved the Hodor/Ned flashback sequence. Hey, maybe one day we'll get a prequel series. I'd be down for that!
|4 days 10 hours ago||And...||
The Lions take Jimmy Landes, Baylor long snapper.
|4 days 10 hours ago||If we see Houma drafted...||
That'd be amazingly awesome. I don't expect it, but hey. Who knows. Detroit is back up again soon, are they not? ;-)
|4 days 11 hours ago||Glasgow snaps the ball to Rudock...||
Rudock drops back, looks for a receiver, finds [INSERT NAME HERE] in the endzone wide open, fires, TOUCHDOWN LIONS!
|4 days 11 hours ago||Alright, Jake!||
Another one that just can't get away from HARBAUGH!
|4 days 11 hours ago||The Pats have five picks in Round 6...||
And two picks in Round 7.
Curious to see what they do.
|5 days 4 hours ago||In fairness...||
Based on merit alone, yeah, I'd take Cook ALL DAY LONG over Hack. There obviously must be something else in play here (besides Oakland).
|5 days 4 hours ago||Good.||
Did NOT want to see him on my Bengals.
So, how many OSU players are left? Are we under 100 yet?
|5 days 4 hours ago||Maybe they'll do better with a QB they didn't draft.||
Maybe. But it all starts on the O-line. They gotta build that up, or else RGIII is gonna get rolled.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Yup.||
I see they just grabbed Shon Coleman. A HUGE position of need for them, to say the least.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Unlikely, but...||
I can't help but grin and imagine that scenario. That would be beautiful.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Ole Miss is in the SEC, last I checked...right?||
Nothing will happen.
At least, nothing major. I'm fairly sure of that.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Here's to our guys getting their NFL chance this weekend...||
Hoping to hear some Wolverine names called this weekend, and for those who aren't called, I hope to hear that a team gives them a shot as an undrafted FA.
I know it's from a Bleacher Report (gag) article, but I do like the headline they used for their article a few days back: "2016 Will Be Michigan's Last Quiet Draft Under Jim Harbaugh."
|6 days 4 hours ago||Not too sure about my Bengals and their pick there...||
...but it WASN'T a Buckeye. So, I'm happy.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Pretty decent chance WR Thomas sneaks into the first round, too.||
That's gotta be a record. Right?
|6 days 5 hours ago||All this first round talent...||
...and they still couldn't win the Big 10.
|6 days 5 hours ago||There's only like what, 925 other OSU guys on the draft board?||
Here's hoping my Bengals pass on all of them.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Oh well.||
At least a Buckeye will be forced to give a damn about part of the state of Michigan.
|6 days 5 hours ago||If RGIII is gonna be the man there...||
...he's gonna need a line. Otherwise, he's gonna be hurting. In every sense of the word.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Coleman it is.||
Probably a tossup there between him and Treadwell, although I kinda like the Baylor pedigree a bit better.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Cleveland's finally gonna make a pick. I think.||
They need O-Line help there. BADLY. Especially if they are gonna roll with RGIII.
|6 days 5 hours ago||Wow.||
Don't know about that pick...but hey, what do I know.
|6 days 13 hours ago||Harbaugh Summer Tour 2016 is on!||
Get your tickets now!
|1 week 1 day ago||Deep discount on Adidas M gear?||
I know stuff is already being sold at a decent discount, but I'm hoping to maybe get something a little more expensive than I'd normally plunk down for (maybe a jacket) when I visit the Big House for the Chelsea-Real Madrid match.
|1 week 4 days ago||Can't wait to see one of those celebrations in HD||
|1 week 6 days ago||Well...||
...I was kinda making reference to the no-hitter which was then in progress, which is now official. :-)
Jake Arrieta is a good one. Damn good. The Cubs are definitely contenders in 2016.
|1 week 6 days ago||Welp.||
Flip on the Reds v. Cubs game in a few minutes. Might be interesting.
|1 week 6 days ago||I thought this was a hoax.||
Crap. 2016 has been unbelievably brutal so far in terms of notable musicians dying WAY TOO young.
