  1. Conigliaro's Potential

    Game 1 - Bruins vs. Canes

    Now the 4th longest game in NHL history. (And 2nd longest since World War II.)
  2. Conigliaro's Potential

    East Quarterfinals Game Thread

    It's my dream scenario, actually - getting to watch the Bruins in the afternoon/early evening, UK time - but my condolences to everyone else. (Has to be the right call for the players, though.)
  3. Conigliaro's Potential

    East Quarterfinals Game Thread

    When was the last multiple-OT game that started in the afternoon? I can't believe I've actually been able to watch 7 periods of hockey before my (UK) bedtime...although I might need to bail on it now, sadly.

    East Quarterfinals Game Thread

    There was one of these in the final minute of the Calgary-Dallas game today, which set up a 6-on-4 that Dallas couldn't convert. (Caught that during one of the TB-CBJ intermissions.)

    East Quarterfinals Game Thread

    I'd like to retract the first part of this comment. If TB-CBJ goes into a fourth OT, and the B's don't get on the ice until after 10:00, and then the B's go multiple overtimes, that would be properly effed up.

    Is this conjecture by you, or do you have a source for this?

    East Quarterfinals Game Thread

    Interesting word choice for "delay". (Although I do think it's a big bogus to have the same teams play second on three of the first four nights, and potentially be subject to delays in this manner.)

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I'd listen to it, but it'll be much more efficient for me to wait and read your eight-paragraph summary of the whole podcast here in this thread. ;)

    2020 Golf Thread

    First of all, I'd like to apologize for this incredibly douchey post yesterday. I stand by what I said - Cypress Point is much nicer than Pebble Beach - but certainly not how I said it! I think the karma gods struck back during my round at Dunbar this morning, which got derailed first when I...

    By the by, this diversion probably should have gone in the normal Golf Thread rather than the PGA Tour thread. (No big deal, though.)

    I've played both (humblebrag), and Cypress is *much* nicer. :)

    2020 PGA Championship- Harding Park

    It's maybe worth thinking about the tournament with a wide-angle lens: apart from the FA Cup and a few other soccer competitions around the world, I think I'm right in saying that the PGA Championship was the first major sporting event - i.e., a competition among the absolute biggest in the...

    Agreed on all counts.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Man, I've heard any number of ill-informed Simmons takes about basketball based directly upon his own experience playing the game, but for him to suggest in last night's podcast that golf announcers rarely criticize PGA Tour pros "because they know how hard golf is" takes him to another level of...

    If the SEC is the only conference to play football this fall, maybe Clemson can apply for a one-year loan deal to the SEC from the ACC.

    2020 PGA Championship- Harding Park

    DJ has absolutely underachieved in majors at the macro level. But at the micro level, I don't think this particular PGA will or should rank very high on his list of might-have-beens. He was the 54-hole leader, but it wasn't a big lead, and there was huge and very talented pack waiting to chase...

    2020 PGA Championship- Harding Park

    But he gets the T2 - he clearly didn't have his A game today, so that's not the worst result for him. It's not like he had a huge lead and blew it: there was a big chasing pack, and he needed to shoot in the mid-60s to get it done. No disgrace at all.
