Maybe I'm overly concerned about the well-being of others, but I rarely recline my seat on flights. I hate those POS who recline as soon as possible and remain reclined for the duration of the flight. If I'm on a long flight (3+ hours) I'll recline when I actually want to try and take a nap, and then go back to normal… Read more
You gotta be some kind of asshole to not only make that joke on air, but to direct it at your Jewish colleague and play it off with some kind of dipshit "I say that in an endearing and respectful way!" comment.
Nobody wants to root for the Yankees. People like storylines. And damnit, an all black team from Chicago and a girl pitcher who is striking out boys — from Philly — is a damn story.
If I were a coach, I'd probably prefer it that way. And there have been plenty of teams like Las Vegas that have one this tournament before. There hasn't been an all black team for over a decade and Mo'ne is one of a handful of girls in the history of the tournament. Vegas romped through both teams and will likely to… Read more
I'd hope it's obvious that most people watch the LLWS not because they want to see the best 12-year-old baseball players in the world but because they want to see underdogs and interesting stories. There's always a team with a few six-foot mustache growers who steamroll the 4'9 kids. They're rarely as interesting as,… Read more
His annual report will read all of five words, "The stock is doing good."
Actually NOT a fact. Japan's Central League does not use the DH. Central League pitchers went 4-for-13 (.308) last night/tonight/tomorrow/wheneverthehellitisoverthere, including a 2-for-3, 2RBI night by Hanshin's Randy Messenger (a former Marlin).
It is the only league left on the planet that still has the pitcher bat, which is a fact. I love baseball, but it is exactly like your racist grandparents. They aren't going to change and until the older beat writers and older minds continue to run the sport, it will forever be lacking behind football in America.
They should have already adopted the DH in the NL, but this reluctance to change is also the same reason why baseball is becoming less and less popular.
Conan is one of the sweetest and most classiest late night talk show hosts around. I'll never forget the words he spoke during his final monologue of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" - "If you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." He truly showed his true colors then... And during the… Read more
While I don't disagree when it comes to this specific former player and coach (Jalen and Doug are great)... in general I think that's a weak point. The majority of the former player/coach crowd that the WWL and other networks have on as analysts are terrible. Give me Bill Barnwell and Zach Lowe over Herm Edwards and… Read more
