Draft Day 2018: In Line At #9 119

I love draft day. So much promise, so much potential. This year the A’s have picks 9, 50, 70, 85 and then pick 9th in rounds 4 on and have $9,553,000 to spend total. It sounds as though there is a fair bit of consensus as to who the top 5 picks will be, but ...

World Series (North America version) Game Thread 253

Be prepared to see “he who shall not be named” fist pumping around the bases played all the time. Unlike some of you, I haven’t decided on a rooting interest. On the one hand, 1988, but LA winning would sure piss off a lot of Giants fans. Plus, CA. On the other hand, I usually ...

I like FloRida. Moms Need Rap Too. 262

While our temporary Florida Man pregames with his haul from Publix, I thought we could use an early game thread to complain about the A’s. Mark Canha’s batting average got low (low, low, low, low, low, low, low) and he is on his way back to Nashville. Welcome to the big leagues Jaycob Brugman! I’ve ...

Jogos Olímpicos de Verão 442

Let’s talk Olympics! The torch will be lit tomorrow in the historic Estadio do Maracanã, if they remember the keys. NBC will show it tape-delayed, naturally, unless one takes measures. The ceremonies are guaranteed to have better music and show more bunda than most, if nothing else. One Edson Arantes do Nascimento will light the ...
