    Game 1- Leafs @ Bruins

    My sister, nephew, and brother-in-law/best sports friend are visiting me in Germany where I've lived for 8 years or so. First time for them. Plane lands in hamburg in one hour. Puck drops in 4. It's gonna be a fun week of laaaaaaate night sports. Also my wife is gonna be pissed. His wife's...

    Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans Suspended from NFL Network

    Can somebody please tell me (longtime lurker) what and where the fuck V&N is?? I have been wondering for years... Obviously it's a political forum, but I cannot find it on SoSH subforums, using the search function or even with Google's help.

    2017-18 NBA Regular Season Game/Observation Thread

    Yeah, all I was saying is that the y axis interval is visually misleading, and underrates defense relatively to the x axis (offense). And the logos acting as data "points" is obviously gonna skew the interpretation, especially for teams who display a bejunked Irishman. I am not actually claiming...

    2017-18 NBA Regular Season Game/Observation Thread

    And that graphic is visually skewed to favor offensive performance over defense. The Celtics defensive rating of just under 110 is nearly as impressive as the Warriors' offensive rating (just over 110), but the graphic doesn't reflect it. Another way to say this: Boston's D and Golden State's O...

    2017 Jimmy G: The Dilemma

    When all is said and done, I think there will be two major counter-examples to the the theme of Belichick forgoing emotion when making business decisions. Namely: 1. Brady will be given a bit more rope towards the end 2. Belichick has predetermined his asking price as no less than a 1st, 2nd...

    Overtime Rules

    Jump ball at midfield. 22 vs 22. Fuck it.

    AFC Championship: Patriots vs Steelers, the buildup

    My favorite part of the video (3:15) is Edelman's response to Burns, the rookie DB, after Burns says it: Burns - "I'M HERE MAN, I'M HERE!" Edelman - "The fact that you gotta talk about it means you're not."

    The Game Ball Thread: AFCCG vs Steelers

    I streamed the game from Germany, missed this play, and based on the gamethread posts was trying hard to imagine Brady doing something literally Jordanesque. Thanks for clarifying

    The Game Ball Thread: AFCCG vs Steelers

    Everybody on the Patriots plus Le'Veon Bell's groin.

    The Game Ball Thread: Divisional Round vs Texas

    At 3:18 of the video, after the White touchdown catch, I believe Edelman yells "GREASY LIGHTNING SPEED" in a Scottish accent, for no apparent reason.

    Maybe he's suffered too many concussions, and has a Harmed Jock Bell? Wait....we're doing anagrams, right?

    Celtics Draft Pick Watch 2016

    In absolute terms, yes. But I prefer to think of it as a 31% higher chance at the number 1 pick from the number 3 slot compared to the number 4 slot. Phrasing!

    Habs @ Bruins - Game taking place outdoors

    The Germans have a great word for this ("Fremdschämen") which they use quite often, even more than "Schadenfreude." And it's pretty apt for this game watching experience.

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    I agree that's a stretch. Wouldn't the better excuse be that JJ was simply bullshitting McNally? As in, Brady really didn't know who McNally was, and JJ was just trying to make McNally feel important?
