    4/20 - High as “Hall” I Ain’t Got No Satellites On Me

    To be fair, they were only two up when they were assessed too many men.

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    I'm probably about a 90th percentile candlepin bowler. I've consistently carried a 105 average in a competitive men's league in a house that I think is faster-than-average. Marginal pros average around 115, the best of the best average 130. I clear 130 maybe once or twice a month when I'm...

    Brian Scalabrine is Better at Basketball Than You

    You could probably be adequate sweeping without a ton of experience, but your team would get buried in a lot of ends because you wouldn't be able to reliably make your front end shots and you'd start every end in a hole. At a minimum, you need to be able to throw a guard reliably (say, at least...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    I don't think this is a particularly apt analogy. The NCAA as a whole is not especially protective of the big teams; many of the rules tend to point toward evening out competition. Things like scholarship limits, limits on recruiting, limits on paying players... all of these tend to work more...

    4/18 - "Hall" Aboard!

    Led with the elbow? Really? Looked like it was at his side, and the only reason it hit Kuraly was because he was falling. (And further to Wilson's defense on that play, it didn't look like Kuraly started going down until after Wilson had already committed to the hit.) Wilson's a shithead...

    Red Sox Draft Tanner Houck, RHP, Missouri at #24 Overall

    The delivery is basically a mirror image. An overlay might have been posted earlier in this thread.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I thought he should have shot it one touch earlier. The delay gave the defender that deflected the shot time to get into the play. I think that's a YTTV problem, it's fine on my Fios.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: US Youth National Teams, Prospect Hype, and Youth Development Thread [The DA is DEAD updates]

    Mexico beat CR 3 - 0, so they go into the game with the U.S. with the edge in goal difference.

    2020-21 College Hockey thread

    Disappointing, but on balance, I thought Wisconsin was the better team for much of the game.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: US Youth National Teams, Prospect Hype, and Youth Development Thread [The DA is DEAD updates]

    CR had top players released by Alajuelense, which is one of the top clubs in their domestic league. USA had top players refused release by Atlanta Utd from MLS, due to an upcoming CONCACAF Champions League tie with Alajuelense.

    Yes, it looks good in that shot.

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    This is already a thing in NCAA hockey (and has been for a couple of years). In college, that play gets reviewed, and Wilson gets five and is ejected.

    Gameweek 27

    That was a really nice goal, that I think was set up by an offside (but one that's easy to miss as it was a move from an offside position back toward the ball).

    I was very happy to see everyone walk away. The amount of fire was a little disconcerting.

    NASCAR 2021

    Looked like it was basically kicked off by McDowell pushing whoever it was in second place (I've already forgotten which of them it was) into Logano.

    Crazy finish to the race.

    Wawrinka had I think three match points in the match tiebreak at 9 - 6 and lost five straight points to lose the match at 11 - 9 in the tiebreak.

    2/1 @ Capitals

    There was a blue line shot visible in the tablet as they were handing it back to the guy in the penalty box.

    2/1 @ Capitals

    Thank heavens for the blue line cam. I thought it reasonably likely he was offside from the angles we had, but if that was all they had, I'm sure it would have been upheld.
