    2019 AS Weekend Game Thread

    Figure we might as well have a game thread for the weekend festivities. The "Rising Stars" World vs. USA game is about to start. Ben Simmons, Luka Doncic, etc. Kyrie is coaching the US team. Tatum got the biggest ovation of anyone from what I could tell.

    2018-19 College Hoops Game Thread

    Figured we'd need to get one of these started. Got #10 Michigan State playing #1 Kansas to tip things off tonight, immediately followed by #4 Duke and #2 Kentucky. Kansas looks solid early on, jumping out to a 10 point lead on MSU halfway through the 1st half.

    Kyle Higashioka: Home Run King

    He started his career with a 9 game appearance at the end of last season, and went 0-18 at the plate with 6 k's. He broke his hitless streak with a homer against the Sox on July 1st. He then homered against Atlanta two days later, and just hit another one. For those not following along...

    Paul George going back to the Thunder

    Being reported by ESPN right now. Kind of shocked by this, and I think most folks are. George told the world he wanted to play with his hometown team, and he re-commits to the Thunder without even meeting with the Lakers. Wow, let's hear your thoughts on this, and how it affects Lebron's...

    Elite 8 Game Thread

    Not sure why the thread hasn't been started yet, but what the hell. Here it is. Loyola/Kansas State already underway, and Loyola is not wilting. 11 seed versus a 9 seed, one of them will be in the Final Four, which is AWESOME. Loyola out to an 11 point lead halfway through the 1st.

    Does Extra-Innings Success Translate to Post-Season Succcess?

    As most of you know, I'm not a stathead, and almost never post on the main board, but I heard this discussion come up today, and figured it might be a good topic that someone could run with and do the research. The Red Sox are an absolutely ridiculous 15-3 in extra inning games this year...

    Possible Brady Extension & Its Impact on Jimmy G

    Heard it on the radio, so no link, but there are rumors out of Foxboro that the annual Brady contract re-structuring is in the works (usually happens right around this time of year), and that the thought is the next restructure will be done in such a way as to free up enough cash to pay Jimmy...

    The Greatest of All Time

    Notice there is no question mark at the end of that title.  Because there is no FUCKING QUESTION.  Tom Brady, BB and the New England Patriots are the greatest of all time respectively, and there is no longer any argument to be made otherwise.  Until today, people could make arguments for...

    Week 12 College Football Game Thread

    I really didn't want to start this thread because I'm not really a thread starter of these types, so if someone wants to post the more traditional "first post" of weekly game threads, please be my guest.    In the meantime, I just wanted to briefly mention East Carolina WR, Justin Hardy.  They...

    Indiana F Devin Davis hit by car driven by teammate

    Strange story here out of Indiana.  http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/11800731/indiana-devin-davis-hit-car-driven-teammate-emmitt-holt   No matter what happens, pretty awful situation for all involved.  Hope the kid makes a full recovery.

    The Official 2014 NFL Injury News Thread

    Figured it would be nice to track injuries and injury related news in one place throughout the season, whether it be for general or fantasy use.  Some big injuries already hitting today, particularly on defense.  Haven't got any official links to put up, but here's some of what I remember from...

    NCAA Tournament Gambling Thread

    Figured there would be enough action on this tournament to have a thread for it, and I didn't want it to disappear over in the Fiskful of Dollars forum that nobody uses. Obviously everyone is going to have brackets, so this isn't really just for that kind of thing, but rather, the individual...

    Just how good is this team we've got here?

    This team just looks so freaking good, it's scary.  Got to be the best 15 game stretch by a Bruins team that I can ever remember.  They aren't just winning games, they are crushing teams in all aspects from goaltending in their end to battling in front of the net on the other end, and everything...
