    6/2—NBA Finals, Game 1, Celts at Warriors

    I'm sure this was noted during the game, but the thing that really jumps out to me re-watching this is how different their defensive approach to the high screens is here compared to early in the game. Felt like in the first quarter, they were trying (and failing) to fight through every screen...

    2022 Asian Leagues: NPB, KBO, CPBL

    Trying to parse the current rules, and curious if I've got this right (or close)-- he's not likely to be eligible to come to MLB freely until he has 9 years of pro experience there; he can be posted before that, but given the international bonus pool restrictions, that seems unlikely to be an...

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    I've been having both of these issues. Forcing an app update seems to have fixed the score reversal thing, but I'm still getting "join live" going to the start. Luckily you can fast forward pretty quickly (took me a while to realize-- don't hold down FF, just press it repeatedly until it gets to...

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    Just a nitpick, but I don't think this is quite right-- the Daboll interview was before Flores'. Daboll 1/25, Flores 1/27. Their statement is that they interviewed Flores before making a decision to go with Daboll (on 1/28), and that the Belichick text was before the Daboll interview (sent...

    NFL announces new punishments for games that are PPD for covid next season

    Advertises might, sure. But the NFL just signed a new long term deal with networks in March, so I don't think the fear of covid cancellations was weighing too heavily: I haven't seen anything about clawbacks...

    NFL announces new punishments for games that are PPD for covid next season

    Is the NFL forcing the forfeit teams to also forfeit their share of the TV money? I always thought it was a league-wide deal, so presumably teams will continue to get TV money even if they weren't playing.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Same here. I weathered the price hikes and loss of NESN, but we have 3 TVs running rokus, two of which are the TCLs with it built in, so this would be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me. After the NESN stuff, I'm basically sticking with it for ease-of-use more than content anyway...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I got it... that might be a deal breaker for me when hockey comes back. Hopefully they can get something resolved before then.

    ZOOM? or Google Hangouts or ?

    Starting zoom school today, and an issue that we had ignored in the spring is a problem again-- my daughter uses zoom on an ipad, with the front facing camera, but it mirrors the video, so that when she writes something and holds it up, it all looks backwards. Is there a way either in zoom or...

    Jaylen Brown re-signs for 4 years/$115 million

    I could be doing this wrong, but as far as I can tell they had $117m committed for next season even if Brown disappeared (though Hayward opting out may change this, but probably not in a good way). So it's not like they could have spent that 29m on someone else, since they'd be over the cap...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    There may be a national version of NESN available, but you need to have your region tagged to New England to get sporting events. There's a few more nuances, though-- for all local channels, including NESN/CSNNE (and bruins/celtics/pats games) you need a login from your home area every 3 months...
