    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    For those who would favor a more Lukaku-flavored striker option for the MNT, here was my first introduction to Orlando's Daryl Dike and, um, that first shot will get your attention: View: https://twitter.com/USMNTvideos/status/1332750850150850565 Born in Oklahoma to Nigerian parents, did 2...

    Help me haggle with my cable provider

    I have an emotional aversion to feelings of getting nickle-and-dimed, or that someone is trying to put one over on me. If the rate was $X forever (but they'll keep trying to upsell me), I wouldn't be here. It's the idea that it's $35 last year, $55 today, $78 a year from now, and unless at...

    Help me haggle with my cable provider

    I suppose. Back in NYC with Spectrum at that $15/month I was a very low-maintenance customer, they just weren't squeezing me for all I was worth. Here, I realize that I pretty much can't pay less than $35-40/month, but Comcast's whole business plan is to give you "year 1" / "year 2" / "year 3"...

    Help me haggle with my cable provider

    Thanks to everyone who's posted so far. Yes, I'm eagerly awaiting FIOS too. There's HughesNet, a satellite provider. I dunno if it's a credible threat, but I suppose I could look at it for a 60-day period or whatever time I'd need to not be a Comcast customer in order to get the introductory...

    Diary of a commentator

    Yeah Lithuania cares about basketball like the Dominican Republic cares about baseball. They are ALL INTO IT, their wiki page is a novel, they've medaled in 3 Olympics and their NBA alums are like national heroes. Beating their team would be a satisfying check on the focus and organizational...

    Wow, a WWC Final rematch! Thanks for letting us know, I'll check it out. Here's the roster, lineup isn't out yet. Horan is apparently out due to COVID. View: https://twitter.com/brfootball/status/1328740646946005000 I didn't realize they'd converted Crystal Dunn to a fullback. I feel like...

    Diary of a commentator

    Glad to hear you're getting work, man. If there's sports being played, there's opportunities out there for you. What's up with the KHL thing, though? I thought that was your main gig, and I know they're playing.

    Help me haggle with my cable provider

    So I use Comcast Xfinity, just for internet. My one goal is, pay the least amount possible. Had a $35/month introductory rate they were giving me for a year, but a few months that went to a $55/m plan, all just for the lowest level of internet they're willing to publicly advertise. Does...

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    Mix Diskerud! I remember him! Boy am I thankful I haven't thought about him (and Johansson, and dozens of others) in years.

    How is it I've never heard of Pity Martinez? $18M, that is a chunk of change.

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    Made a few decent recoveries and crosses from the left, but in defense, was responsible for keeping onside the player who scored against them. Just didn't see the cross coming and anticipate by moving up. View: https://twitter.com/fbwonderkids/status/1331714560718475267

    I hope you've already changed your password and enabled 2-factor authentication. Have you? That's kinda the first-thing, do-it-yesterday task. Then once you know that only you can access your account, you'll know that it's just down to you and whatever you're doing.

    2021 HoF: Who Should Be In?

    Charles Woodson should get admitted on the first ballot, but then they do a recount and reverse his admission on appeal. Seymour and Rodney Harrison are both overdue, but especially Seymour. With respect to Ty Law, there's an argument that Richard Seymour was the best defensive player on 3...

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    Theoretically, they could have spun the wheel this season and if Tatum doesn't make all-NBA again, he doesn't qualify for the 5 year / 30% Max deal, only the 25% Max deal, right? With doing that guaranteed to piss him off, I'm not saying Ainge should have done that, just curious how much that...
