  1. Sooo........Steph's new deal with the Dubs averages just under 54 Million per.....for the next 4 years.... Meanwhile Canuck fans get their knickers in a twist over giving a 2nd/3rd pairing defenseman 2.5 million......
  2. Speaking of the 2024 election, it appears as though, in absence of any actual platform, the goal is going to be running on the "Anti-woke" ticket.....even if they have to resort to faking things for Republicans to be outraged over..... https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/03/politics/fact-check-dallas-justice-now-college-pledge-white-parents-michele-washington/index.html It's kind of ironic, since we keep hearing Republicans claim that the Capitol rioters were ANTIFA operatives, dressed as Trump supporters......now here we have them engaging in t
  3. Apples and Orangutans.....that was as a Presidential candidate. As a VP, she's polling at around 45% approval. https://www.latimes.com/projects/kamala-harris-approval-rating-polls-vs-biden-other-vps/
  4. It's just fundamental baseball.....once upon a time the mantra when you were down by multiple runs was "take a strike"....Now it's "swing for the fences", every time. You see the same thing on the other side of the ball as well.....how many times this season have we seen one of our relievers throw a full count breaking ball with nobody on and leading by more than a run?
  5. No, no Coho....he's right....when does it stop? ...I mean it's not like we need a new flu shot every year or anything.....oh, wait....
  6. Florida being Florida.... https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/566056-florida-district-reverses-on-mask-mandate-after-desantis-threatens I sincerely hope that no child in Florida pays the price for this assclown's political posturing, but if it happens the parents should understand that they, (along with Governor Desantis) are responsible for the child's death...
  7. ....and Kavanaugh. At least this time they waited until an investigation was done....unlike when they threw Al Franken under the bus....to the detriment of the Democratic Party...
  8. That was in the election. His numbers have slipped since January 6th. Hence, not "growing"..... https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2021/01/20/how-we-know-the-drop-in-trumps-approval-rating-in-january-reflected-a-real-shift-in-public-opinion/
  9. Maybe. But she would still have to go through the nomination process. I think her "unpopularity" right now has a lot to do with Joe sticking her with the job of dealing with the Mexico border problem. That's a tough nut for her to crack, but I don't really think it will carry over to 2024.... Edit: Unless you mean that Joe steps aside before his term is finished? I think that's unlikely...
  10. BTW: If Joe decides not to run again in 2024, it doesn't mean that Kamala automatically becomes the Democratic nominee....
  11. Really? You think his base is growing? From everything I've read, it's actually shrinking....He'll never lose the die-hard MAGATs, but that's a pretty small percentage of the overall voter picture. The January 6th debacle and his continued lying about election fraud has to have cost him some moderates.....

    Probably for the best... ....i doubt Marc Gasol's liver could handle another big victory.....
  13. Yeah, Charlie likes to let the hitters decide what to do but in certain situations, you have to give the take sign, even a great hitter like Vladdy....
  14. The one run / extra innings thing is getting pretty old....their record in these games is just abysmal.... It's like they forget everything they know, when the games are tight. Yesterday, with the Jays down by three and a man on, Vladdy swings at a 2-0 pitch....FFS! Even if you hit it to the moon, you're still down by a run.....you need another man on base....
  15. This is a tough one, but I'm taking Keon, just slightly ahead of Shanny...

    Tokyo Olympics

    Man, Basketball Canada needs to sacrifice a goat or something..... Even at 1-2, the Canadian women had 2 chances to advance: The US could beat France by 15 or more and Canada advances....or, Puerto Rico holds Australia to less than a 24 point win... The US beats the French by 11, while the Aussies claim a 27 point victory....and the 4th ranked team in the world is heading home....

    I thought defections at major sporting events were a thing of the past, but with the situation in Belarus, it appears as though they may not be: https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/02/sport/belarus-kristina-timanovskaya-olympics-asylum-intl-hnk/index.html More in the link...

    BTW, last night I watched a pretty impressive performance in the women's 1500 meter heats.... A runner from the Netherlands named Sifan Hassan was one of the pre-Olympic favorites and known for cruising near the back of the pack and then finishing with a strong kick in the last lap... This was the tactic she was employing in her first round race, until disaster struck. Just after the final lap began, she got caught up with a few other runners and fell, along with another runner near the back of the pack. All she did after that was get up and reel in the enti

    I played volleyball in Jr High, but I'm far too vertically challenged to have continued any further. However, the high school I attended (PGSS) did win a provincial championship on the backs of a couple of my football teammates, brothers Randy and Richard Wagner. Randy was part of the 1984 Olympic team that competed in L.A.

    I don't think anyone has forgotten it....Arash Madani mentioned Abby Wambach and the Norwegian referee when talking about last night's win on SNET. Judging by a couple of memes I've seen floating around, no-one has forgotten the shameful display of the Americans after running up the score on Thailand in the last World Cup, either....
  21. Yeah, but can he remember "person, woman, man, camera, TV"? That's the real test of genius....
