  1. ....and the plot thickens between the Jays and the Rays...


    Anyone who watched last night's game saw Kevin Kiermayer inexplicably run through a stop sign at third and get gunned out by Teo at home in the 6th inning. What we all missed at the time was the fact that a data card was dislodged from Alejandro Kirk's wrist band by KK when he slid in. Kirk didn't notice, but Kiermayer picked up the card and took it back to the dugout.


    When the Jays realized what had happened, they sent a bat boy over to the Rays dugout to ask for the card back.....he was turned down and according to Arash Madani, the Jays are decidedly not happy about it.... https://www.sportsnet.ca/mlb/article/rays-grab-data-card-shaken-loose-kirks-wrist-deny-blue-jays-request-return/


    Right now, I'd put the possibility of Alex Manoah drilling Kiermayer tonight at at least 50%.....Might just be some fireworks tonight at the Trop.....

    Kinda hilarious that this perspective of "FIRE BENNING" is the equivalent of FIRE JT. People are still rambling about how Trudeau is bad etc etc, but can't really formulate why he is bad, or rehashing old arguments. The amount of straws that the Conservative voters have been grasping to bash the guy is hilarious, especially in the comment section. Trudeau's handling of COVID wasn't perfect, but it sure was better than what O'Toole would've done.

    In the last few days leading up to Election day, I was bombarded hourly with ads from the Conservatives....


    In every one of them, the only thing they had was "Trudeau promised not to call an election during the pandemic" and then cut to a video clip where he "promises" nothing.....


    That's it. Nothing about the pandemic, CERB, charities......

    Well I have to say this election hasn't changed my mind at all. What a useless, silly endeavor. Not to mention a complete waste of money. How the hell does it cost 600 million to make a couple really $&!#ty videos and count a bunch of meaningless votes?

    I think they hired James Cameron to direct....

    I'm thinking Jason Kenney will be put on waivers.:P


    Justin will put in a claim (as a favor) and send him to Kalamazoo.:ph34r:

    I was thinking he'd get cut by the Cons and then get picked up by the PPC....


    Then Bo-Bandy and Mad Max join forces to become the most hated tag team since Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik....

    Yeah a voter who also in the past has supported the NDP a leftist party. 

    I don’t know if you’re trying to put words in my mouth or try to paint me as an extremist but whatever floats your boat. 

    Last time I checked it is not wrong to support any political party in Canada as long as it is legal and not a designated terrorist organization. 

    I will continue to support the outspoken and fringe. 

    Wow....you're sounding awfully defensive, bro....


    Have you talked to the Canucks about a contract yet?

    That pitch to Valera was borderline and probably gets called 60% of the time. But the pitch to Hernandez was nowhere close to the strike zone. 

    Agreed. But those two ABs were only the last two incidents....


    He was also squeezing Pearson, giving him nothing on the corners, or at the top of the zone. Then Chargois and Enns come in and all of a sudden, those same pitches are strikes....


    I usually shake my head a bit when people blame the officials for a loss and as I said, it was sloppy play (especially wild pitches / passed balls) that were the biggest factors, but the Jays had a real opportunity to come back and some poor calls by the HP umpire made sure it didn't happen.

    Need to go to mail in ballots. My nephew mailed it from US. 

    This has long been a pet peeve of mine....


    We file our taxes online. We can purchase a car or a house online. We can do just about anything online....in a secure manner....


    Yet somehow in2021 we still look at voting by mail as some sort of progressive advancement in the electoral process. :rolleyes:

  8. There are plenty of First Nations team nicknames and logos out there.....Seminoles, Fighting Sioux, Fighting Illini, Utes, Chippewas, Choctaws, Aztecs....there's also names like Chiefs, Warriors and Warhawks....


    IMHO, those are different that outright racist tropes like "Redskin" and "Indian".....and many of them operate with the approval of the Nations they derive their names from....


    That being said, there are some logos out there that could do with some upgrading, even if the nickname remains as is.

    Vladdy Jr is going to win AL MVP hands down. He deserves it. He’s chasing the Triple Crown as well. He’s really special. 


    In other news, with another series win, we are a game back of Red Sox for 1st WC spot. Berrios pitches another gem. Hope we can finish the season off just like how we are playing as of late. Go Jays!

    In any other season, I'd agree. But this is the year of Shohei Ohtani....


    I think it will probably be fairly close, (and I hope I'm wrong) but my money is on Ohtani.

    A 1-1 draw away to Colorado is not a bad result.  


    Leaves the Caps four points out of a playoff spot with ten games remaining.


    Should be a dogfight for the rest of the season.

    I liked the fact that Sartini went with White and Cavallini for a stretch in the second half....nice to see the side go for a road win, rather than be content with the draw.


    It didn't work out, but I applaud the decision anyway.

    I saw a tweet this morning with a QB comparison.....PM 346, 3 TDs....LJ 346, 3 TDs....


    Congrats to Jackson for getting over that hump.

    I swear the refs want Dallas to win , they keep ending charger drives with shady calls

    It sure looked that way....


    I'm far from a fan of the Cowboys and the zebras certainly had a hand in that game, but I have to take my hat off to Zeurlein....kicks a 56 yarder like it was nothing. Might have been good from 66.....
