    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    F. What a nut punch. Only positive is that the goalie and puck luck stole it. Little goonery and ref impact. I couldn't take a repeat of game 5.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Lurker shamelessly posting for membership. It worked for me a few years ago, but I only got the important part (the win) and most have been missed when attendance was taken.

    2020 Pats: Kraft One-Ups Brady’s Departure

    I really don't get this approach. If preventing human trafficking is an important cause for you, you should be cheering legitimate efforts to tackle it but also denouncing efforts that cynically use it as a label for other purposes. Based only on information from police and prosecutors, this...

    For those of you who said they were cutting back or eliminating watching the NFL . . .

    Not sure if any of the choices apply. I used to watch all of the Pats games and at least one other game per week. Ballghazi was the trigger that caused me to take a hard look at what the nfl was doing. The logical position would have been to ditch the nfl entirely, but I've taken the morally...

    Best 2018 Red Sox postseason moments

    This is gold! These are perfect for rewatching, compared to the DVD sets which are a pretty big time commitment. Do any of these exist for 2013 (or, less likely, 2007/2004)?

    This is the best Red Sox team...ever.

    Could still be different, but the interview I'm referring to was also during the final postgame.

    This is the best Red Sox team...ever.

    In his defense, if it is the same interview I saw, he was responding to a statement from Fred Lynn saying that this was the best Sox outfield ever. I think he's wrong, but to me it sounded like typical elite athlete bravado combined with banter with a brother-in-arms rather than putting down...

    2018 Patriots UDFA News & Signings

    Did anyone else get a Bruschi flashback with this writeup? The New England Patriots selected Bruschi in the third round (86th overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft. Coming into the draft he was listed at 6'0 250 pounds and was considered too small to be a defensive end but was a good size to be a...

    Patriots to play in Mexico?

    Yes, there are real and significant effects. At that altitude, there would be a roughly 25% reduction in density relative to a game played at sea level at the same temperature and humidity. That would result in a 25% reduction in drag force throughout the flight of the ball. And then there...

    Patriots to play in Mexico?

    That was taken into account, and actually was the only reason why a linear approximation of change of gravity with altitude was appropriate. If you actually do the math, the effect of adding 7,382' in altitude to a 20,902,261' mean radius of the earth is a decrease of 0.071% in weight...

    Patriots to play in Mexico?

    Yes. While I appreciate the implied mocking of those who think Ballghazi had anything to do with the weight of the balls, there are a few subtle effects that would reduce the weight of the balls. You tapped into my nerd brain enough to get me thinking about it, so I thought someone else might...

    TB Suspension: Cheater free to play again

    Since you claim to really want to know: The data is not enough to imply tampering. When the Princeton prof answers the widespread criticism of his work that you can verify yourself with a calculator or a refrigerator, I'll be all ears. Texts should be singular. One text in may of the prior...

    TB Suspension: Cheater free to play again

    No, he doesn't bring up good points. There is only one point that is accurate (the cellphone destruction not being as routine as Brady claimed). The rest all have subtle, but important, mistatements or omissions that undermine the point. Some have already been addressed, and correcting the...

    TB Suspension: Cheater free to play again

    That chart could be very persuasive (maybe not to the judges, but to normal people). Many people tune out when numbers get thrown around, but this avoids that reflex. Only complaint is that the game in question should be highlighted or a different color.

    Sons, Sam, and Horn, L.L.P.: Brady Case LEGAL ISSUES Only

    But don't the actions of the NFL when presented with a confession to almost the same thing (Brad Johnson) frame this evaluation? Why should it trouble the judges if if manifestly doesn't trouble the NFL?

    Sons, Sam, and Horn, L.L.P.: Brady Case LEGAL ISSUES Only

    So their nightmare scenario is essentially that they would be limited to fines in situations that they have declined to investigate at all in the past (Brad Johnson, SB37)? I get that that's not in the record under consideration, but the logical conclusion talk brings in hypotheticals. Can...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    Is this potentially more ammunition for the appeal? Corrente's name was on the list of those interviewed, but his name or Carey's never appear anywhere else. The LA Times article seems to be drawing from Corrente's recollection. It is difficult to believe that he would not have mentioned the...
