    Tommy Lasorda dead at 93

    Not for me, no.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I'm about to take the leap. Right now, I'm paying $120 before taxes and fees for 200Mps Xfinity + digital preferred or whatever, and looking at Fubo.tv. In my town, my ISP choices are Xfinity and Fios. Which is more streaming friendly, and which is going to give me a better price for Internet...

    White Sox hire Tony LaRussa as manager

    My thoughts exactly. Alex Cora would have been PERFECT for this crew. Which means he's still available to come back to Boston in 2021.

    9/13 Pats vs Dolphins

    That sack with Bledsoe-esque. I think it's time to start day-drinking.

    What are the next Mega Millions numbers? Asking for a friend.

    9/13 Pats vs Dolphins

    Well Cam's run is something we sure didn't see a lot during Brady's days. This is different.

    9/13 Pats vs Dolphins

    The jumbotron is showing replays. Weird.

    9/13 Pats vs Dolphins

    The rhythm is off, the notes are dodgy, she ended up in a different key from where she started, and this is one of the worst renditions I've ever heard. An abomination.

    The Pre-Game Thread: Wk.1 vs Phins

    Fake news. Didn't happen. Cam's Brady's backup; Brady's out today with a strained hangnail.

    The Pre-Game Thread: Wk.1 vs Phins

    This is one of the worst renditions of the national anthem I've ever heard.

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Exactly. He said that *to* somebody, somebody who was going to clearly understand what he was saying, and wouldn't object to it. He knew what he was fucking doing. Bye. Canceled.

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    While I appreciate you pulling back the curtain (wocka wocka!) on Hot Doc Talk, the situations are a bit different: You're talking about it in doctor's only quarters, the cafeteria, or whatever. It would be like you're in a patient's room, using that language when you think they're sleeping, but...

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Brennaman apologizes to the LGBTQ+ community, asks for forgiveness. He says all the right things here, but his immediate response still feels shallow and gutless to me. It's disappointing to see people here, some I have a great deal of respect for, giving him a free pass on this, but that's not...

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

    His non-apology is disgusting. He's not sorry for his words. He's sorry his words were caught on a hot mic. He apologized to Fox, not to the viewers and listeners or the people he marginalized. Thom Brennaman can go fuck himself.

    Worst Team Ever?

    For me, the disturbing trend isn't short term, but long term. Beginning with the arrival of Pedro in 1998, they were remarkably consistent, not suffering any losing seasons until 2012. After Theo and Tito left, they've been maddeningly inconsistent. 2013 was lightning in a bottle, and 2014 and...
