06/03/2018 - 12:41pm It’s so unbelievably

It’s so unbelievably frustrating Microsoft won’t make the game backwards compatible.

05/31/2018 - 12:02pm They’re remote controlled. I

They’re remote controlled. I remember watching one of the seasons of Hard Knocks on HBO (can’t remember what team, rams maybe?) and they had ordered like 25 of them.

05/22/2018 - 1:52pm Good luck Ace! Sending good

Good luck Ace! Sending good thoughts and vibes your way as always. I truly appreciate your honesty about your health issues and struggles. I hope the medical marijuana does the trick for u. If u can stay off the opiates, do it by any means possible. I was prescribed 5 tramadol a day about 6-7 years ago, and I’ve been stugggling with opiates like crazy since then. Keep fighting to find the right combo of things that will work for u. It’s damn near impossible with how insurances and most doctors are today (majority don’t care about their patients, or simply aren’t educated) but u have to keep fighting. A lot of people make a lot money off people like u or I being sick, let’s make sure they fix the f*cking problem. Prayers up to u Ace, you’re clearly a fighter, and u inspire myself and others to keep fighting to fix “what’s wrong with us”.

05/10/2018 - 12:07pm I’ll agree with u that LBJ is

I’ll agree with u that LBJ is by far the most incredible athlete to play basketball, but as far as MJ getting all the calls? That happens with whoever the best players are in every era. It was MJ, then Kobe got all the calls, now LeBron gets all the calls. That’s just how it is.

05/10/2018 - 11:52am I disagree, not many teams

I disagree, not many teams use much zone concept at all in the NBA, too many good shooters. The defensive 3 second rule was put in to open up the game and make it HARDER to play zone, and clear out the paint. You’re 100 percent correct about the iso factor though. Much more ball movement. But the scorers still get their buckets.

05/10/2018 - 11:46am Agreed. Also no one ever

Agreed. Also no one ever mentions the hand check rule. When MJ played you could be extremely physical on defense. Taking away that hand check rule was the first domino in making the NBA the high scoring, more free flowing game it is now. If prime MJ played today he’d average 35-40 points a night easily, as well as increase his rebounds and assists due to more possessions because of the higher pace of play. And I know he didn’t shoot a lot of 3’s, but is there any doubt he would have perfected that as well if he played in this era? This is all coming from a Knicks fan who HATED Jordan. LeBron deserves his due, he’ll likely finish as the second best ever, but he’s had too many “wtf” moments in his career. People forget not many years ago Jason Kidd and JJ Barrera were guarding him successfully in nba finals games (Heat Mavs series, 2010-2011 I believe).

05/02/2018 - 12:30pm I’ve always been a huge HBO

I’ve always been a huge HBO guy so I did watch the first season as it came out, but I had no idea it would develop into such a huge thing. I’ve had a few friends over the years say “that stupid dragon show? I’m not watching that!” Then I’ll show them the Hardhome episode, or Battle of the Bastards, and they quickly change their minds lol

05/01/2018 - 1:03pm Tyrion’s revenge was great,

Tyrion’s revenge was great, but the Tywin character was pretty epic. Charles Dance is a fantastic character. Fun nerdy fact: If anyone on here has played the game “the Witcher 3” he does the voice acting for the emperor. Netflix is making a Witcher tv series and rumor has it he’ll return in that role in live action. Nerdism over, carry on

04/28/2018 - 12:43pm Happy for Cole, he deserves

Happy for Cole, he deserves it. But as said above, what the f*ck???? Mo will be fine, but it’s absolute bs he hasn’t been drafted. He’ll make his money on his second contract for sure, but I really feel for him. He’s worked his ass off and deserved better. I get maybe falling to the second round, but this is one of the strangest things I’ve seen in the draft in quite a while.

04/27/2018 - 6:48pm Lol at the person who

Lol at the person who literally went and negged every single one of my comments like this, even ones thanking people for links.

04/27/2018 - 2:18pm Yeah I thought Pacino was

Yeah I thought Pacino was fantastic, very eye opening. Thought i knew the whole story, but there was way more I didn’t know

04/27/2018 - 2:12pm Yes i thoroughly enjoyed

Yes i thoroughly enjoyed making of a murderer, especially it’s style. I’ll definitely have to check out the keepers then. Have u seen “the jinx” the one about Robert Durst? The ending is incredible, so if u haven’t seen it, don’t look up anything online about it. It’s the ultimate WTF moment. Wild wild county was like that as well.

04/27/2018 - 1:50pm Yes the aunt Diane one was

Yes the aunt Diane one was very good, still need to see grizzly man

04/27/2018 - 1:49pm Awesome response so far guys,

Awesome response so far guys, didn’t know there was so many other doc lovers out there

04/27/2018 - 1:42pm Oh I’m well versed in your

Oh I’m well versed in your life sir. Read your book and watched both your movies lol

What’s the topic of them?

04/27/2018 - 1:40pm Thanks for including the link

Thanks for including the link

04/27/2018 - 1:38pm Yes if the topic is

Yes if the topic is intriguing enough I prefer the series doc format. The keepers was the one about the nun who was murdered correct?
And yes the slender man one was good, honestly everything HBO does documentary wise is gold

04/27/2018 - 1:35pm Lol while it was a good

Lol while it was a good laugh, I couldn’t male it past the second episode.

04/27/2018 - 1:08pm Lol touché

Lol touché

04/27/2018 - 1:02pm Totally depends on what types

Totally depends on what types of shows you like, and who you’re watching with, but I’ll throw out some of my favorites as I watch an unhealthy amount of shows and movies.
For tv series = The Wire may not be for everyone (when it was on HBO it was widely ignored for a specific reason I won’t get into at the moment, but if you’re a fan of the show u know what I mean). It’s a masterpiece of a show that somehow manages to show both sides of the coin when it comes to the drug trade (police/dealers) yet over the course of 5 seasons, basically breaks down how a major city works, it’s problems, and the cycle of it all. I could go on and on, just give it a shot if it sounds like your thing.

Ozark on Netflix was excellent, Sneaky Pete on amazon prime is one I was recently introduced to and it’s more lighthearted but still has it’s heart pounding moments. Obviously game of thrones, that goes without saying. 7 Seconds on Netflix was well done. The Night Of on HBO is incredible as well and didn’t get enough recognition. First season of True Detective on HBO as well, second season is different characters and plot, not nearly as good. If you’re into documentaries at all, Wild Wild Country on Netflix is one of the best I’ve ever seen. At the end it just depends on what genres u enjoy, and who’s watching with u, hope some of those help.

04/26/2018 - 3:56pm Yeah you’re right, typed it

Yeah you’re right, typed it on my phone in a rush. Typos galore too

04/26/2018 - 1:29pm Yikes that was way longer

Yikes that was way longer than I thought it would be, excuse my typos please.

04/26/2018 - 1:25pm As someone who spent part of

As someone who spent part of his childhood in a lily white town in Connecticut, and the other part living in different places around the country where often times, I was the only white person in a group of friends made up of other races (mostly black), it’s a very murky area. I myself have never called any person, any type of slur. Thank the lord both my parents raised me to see everyone equally. But I will say, growing up listening to rap, when I sing along with a song, I’ll sing along with every word. I still do it to this day. Even when I’m with my friends of color, as their singing along with me. In that sense, amongst yourself or friends, I don’t see an issue with it in that particular context. Any other time? Not ok. One issue I noticed growing up, and I’m seeing it a lot with the generation behind mine, is I saw/am seeing white kids using the word as a black person would use it, in a friendly way, to other white kids. Look at the big issue with Josh Allen today, with the Villanova kid, tweets from their high school days being dumb kids and trying to be cool and wanting to be part of the culture. Obviously they were kids saying things they shouldn’t, but I don’t look at either of them as racists at all, just uninformed kids trying to talk the way their favorite rapper, comedian etc might talk. At the same time, when I was younger my friends of color would often refer to me that way as well, though I NEVER said it back, I just never felt comfortable using that word in any way, other than quoting a song. As far as Reske goes, there’s a lot of variables we don’t know (other incidents, more details that never came out etc) but to me, he used the word in a hateful way. Therefore, he’s done. No matter how he grew up, he was and is old enough to know better. When I was about 23 my gf cheated on me and left me for another guy, who happened to be black. I hated the dude, wanted to kill him, but not once did it cross my mind to call him any type of racial slur. Every other name in the book sure, but nothing racial. At the end of the day, if you’re not black, don’t use the word. Just trust me. And for the people saying “they shouldn’t use the word themselves”, as someone else in this thread said, it’s a way for them to take back power over the word. Besides, I’m polish and Irish, and I’ll constantly refer to myself as a polack mick. Just like an Italian person would walk into a room of Italian friends/family and use the g-word amongst themselves. Where’s the outage about that? There isn’t any, and there shouldn’t be. Sorry for the long post, just felt like maybe my personal experiences would shed some light on the topic for people who haven’t been around other cultures much. If not that’s ok too.

04/01/2018 - 9:17am Apparently it was a huge hit.

Apparently it was a huge hit. They plan on using an even louder, more obnoxious horn on Monday

03/27/2018 - 12:03pm Yeah it wasn’t the best

Yeah it wasn’t the best moment as a Uconn fan lol. The worst was when we played state in the final four at ford field, ugh I still have nightmares about that lol. But we’ve been pretty fortunate over the last couple of decades. Hope to get back to where we were soon, just don’t see it happening in the AAC.

03/26/2018 - 12:28pm Lifelong UM fan here, but

Lifelong UM fan here, but growing up in Connecticut, I of course will always have a special love for Uconn basketball. I mention this only because I vividly remember losing to George Mason in the elite 8, despite the fact Uconn had 3-4 future pros on the team. 75% might be a low number, as everyone there not rooting for Michigan will be rooting against them. I remember that game like it was yesterday, GMU making incredible shots, Uconn not getting the benefit on any calls, nothing bouncing uconns way. I think UM will win, and win running away, just be forewarned, going against a Cinderella team that’s actually good? Not very much fun. This Michigan team is special though, and Beilein is basically the best coach in basketball at this point, so go blue, and f*ck Cinderella (not sister Jean tho, I was raised catholic and I’m not messing with that lady lol)

“Where’s my elephant!?!”

03/08/2018 - 9:41am Good for her. I remember when

Good for her. I remember when she played in the WNBA for the New York team. I also remember her being hired by the Spurs a few years back, and if she’s done this well for herself, under one of the greatest coaches of all time, she deserves her shot. She obviously knows the game, she’s been Pop’s top assistant for a while now.

03/07/2018 - 10:22am I was impressed when the

I was impressed when the other day my dog figured out how to get out of a locked crate. After reading this I’m just so disappointed she never made something of her talents and smarts. I mean Wags became a damn Admiral! In all seriousness though, great story.

I already got plenty of the Dr on my iPod lol. Shortly after that is when hip hop/rap died and turned into the crap it is now. Or did i just get old? Probably the latter

02/08/2018 - 10:12am Every time i see someone

Every time i see someone calling someone else a snowflake, Idk why but i just picture some older person at their keyboard, pining away for “how things used to be”, wishing gas was still 25 cents a gallon, and kids walked to school uphill both ways lol. What movie/book is it from?

02/06/2018 - 6:22pm Thanks. That makes more

Thanks. That makes more sense. There’s no way in hell I’d pay for the right to stream a channel I already have to pay for

02/06/2018 - 6:18pm Is this only for people who

Is this only for people who don’t have the cable login credentials? Or is this a standalone service for people who only stream and don’t have cable? For example if u pay for HBO on your cable package, you can use your cable provider login to access HBOGo for free. Basically every major tv channel now has an app you can use for streaming, as long as your cable package has that channel in it.

02/02/2018 - 12:03am It’s crazy u said “tusk”

It’s crazy u said “tusk” because that’s exactly the movie that came to mind when I saw the title of the thread. Ugh that movie was so disturbing

01/26/2018 - 12:32pm Lifelong knicks fan here,

Lifelong knicks fan here, watch almost every game on league pass. He played quite well, I think at worst he can be a good backup PG for a long time. He could even get some starts in this season, as our other 2 best point guards are jarret jack (playing surprisingly not terrible, but too old to count on night to night) and Frankie smokes (TON of potential, has looked great at times, but he’s still a 19 year old rookie). Trey looked good running the PnR, which is huge, as no other guards on the roster are any good at it. Hope he keeps it up.

01/26/2018 - 12:20pm The mods should add a rule

The mods should add a rule where if u get to negative one million points u get red locked. I mean damn, it’s clear he has no intentions other than to be a troll and respond to everything with negativity.

01/26/2018 - 12:11pm Lmao...that whole exchange

Lmao...that whole exchange right there, just fantastic

01/21/2018 - 10:21am I do the same thing on

I do the same thing on YouTube. You’d be surprised how much is really on there.

01/17/2018 - 9:22am Just another example of how u

Just another example of how u never truly know what someone else is going through. So so sad. RIP

01/17/2018 - 9:20am Sad but true, working in

Sad but true, working in those type of environments almost force u to act a certain way. My uncle was a cop for 30 years and would talk about that type of mindset quite a bit. He often talked about a murder suicide where (trying to not be too gruesome) there was a hole left in the top of someone’s head. It was around Halloween time, and another officer turned on his flashlight, shining it into the head, and said “look a jack-o-lantern”. I remember this story horrified me at the time, but there really must be something psychological with it. Can’t imagine seeing things like that and then just having to shut it off when u head home to the family.

01/16/2018 - 8:48am I think the drug test

I think the drug test failures did him in. Don’t get me wrong, I smoke everyday yet still maintain my life well and handle my business. But if you’re an nba GM, and you’re looking for an undersized center who can’t stretch the floor to nba 3 point range, you’re probably gonna go with the guys without the drug test failures. It’s not that he’s really a bust, but couple the drug test failures and the injury issues, not many teams are willing to give guaranteed contracts on a guy who might not even get to play for u if he gets hurt or fails another one. Like I said earlier I’m the last person who would say “weed is the devil!” lol, but yeah the combo of the tests and injuries sullied his rep around the league quite a bit. I have no clue what he’s doing with his life now, but if he played well overseas for a year or 2 he’d get another legit shot. Hope it works out for him

01/14/2018 - 6:02pm Haven’t made a decision

Haven’t made a decision either way. Didn’t book anything yet, we’ll probably still go. She gets what she wants lol

Good spots thanks

Yeah I’m literally planning a trip to Hawaii with this girl, and she’s all worried about getting out there during whale season. After all this we might have to go somewhere else lol. Anyone know of any comparable places with similar pricing?
