    2020 NFL: Wk.3 Game Thread

    ECF Game 6 - Tired of this %*#*

    This Heat team is likeable, but they're still fucking Miami. Mistreat the Heat.

    NBA 20/21 start pushed until at least Xmas

    Has it? The bubble was great content because you didn't have the worst eight teams who would be tanking, so all the western teams and all but one of the Eastern teams were essentially trying (even if the Nets weren't fielding their name players). Water down the schedule with a bunch of...

    The Giannis Sweepstakes

    Embiid feels like, of all second stars, the number one pick for "Guy who'd work least well next to Giannis." Ambiguity of like meaning both "such as" or "similar to." But who is there who is similar to those guys who would actually be available? Apart from the Embiid/Simmons bad fit, teams...

    Messi Maradona Zidane Puskas C Ronaldo I always feel Pele is a little overrated. He's like the Hank Aaron of Soccer to me - really good, for a very long time, but merely great rather than transcendent like some of the other guys he gets in conversations with. it's not clear to me he's...
