    Please recommend a computer monitor

    I have a MacBook Pro (2018) with Thunderbird 3 ports, and I have ~$150 work allowance for a monitor. Anyone have any recommendations at that price point? Also, with regard to connectivity, I assume I need only a USB-C to HMDI adapter and an HDMI cable. Am I correct?

    4/25 - Hall-o. Is it me you're looking for?

    1. Let's not one blip stop us from using the Hall theme that helped reel off several straight wins in a row. 2. Just to piss Napkin off. Bs at Pittsburgh today at 3:00 ET.

    2/18 vs. NJ Devils

    I guess I'll do my duty and take a turn starting game threads. After another long gap between games, the B's return to Boston to take on the Devils tomorrow night @ 7:00. Hope it's the first game of another long points streak.

    Red Sox are more likely to beat...

    Who should I root for to win tonight if all I care about is an easier opponent for the Sox (and not any other reason)?

    3/15 Bs @ Sharks (Say It Ain't Joe!)

    I went to ESPN's (I know, I know) NHL page to do a little scouting on the San Jose Sharks in advance of tomorrow night's game and what did I see? A graybearded Joe Thornton! Man, it's hard to believe that he was drafted nineteen years ago -- makes me feel so old! Let's take two (in...

    3/12 - Bs vs. Islanders (Oh, No Mo' OT, OK? Tx.)

    Guess I'll get this started a little early so as to remind everyone that tomorrow's game is a somewhat rare matinee (1 PM). The Isles have taken 24 out of a possible 30 points in their past 15 games, so they're coming in kinda hot. The Bs have a modest point streak going, but have played four...

    3/10 - Bs vs. Hurricanes (Prove Me Wrong)

    Got a bad feeling that this might be a letdown game: Weak opponent and coming off playoff-like intensity games against their last four opponents. Prove me wrong by grabbing an easy two points tonight, boys.

    3/8 - Bs @ Lightning (Battle for First Place)

    The Bs (81 points/67 GP) would move into FIRST place in the Atlantic with a regulation win against the TB Lightning (82 points/66 GP) in the hot sun (and even an OT loss will give the Bs sole possession of second place). The Lightning are coming off a road loss against Philly last night--a trip...

    3/7 - Bs @ Panthers (Battle for 2nd Place)

    The Bs (79 points/66 GP) would move into second place in the Atlantic with a regulation win against the Florida Panthers (80 points/65 GP) in the hot sun. The Panthers are coming off a lousy road trip (1-3-1) in which they must have traveled something like 650,000 miles total. Let's take two...

    3/5 - Bs vs. Capitals (ECF Preview)

    I think we can all agree that these two teams appear to be on a collision course to meet in the Eastern Conference Finals. But seriously, if the Broncos can win the SuperBowl, why can't the Bruins win the Cup? Maybe, just maybe 2016 is the year of mediocre champions. Beats resigning myself to...

    3/3 - Bs vs. Blackhawks (SCF Preview)

    I think we can all agree that these two teams appear to be on a collision course to meet in the Finals. But seriously, if the Broncos can win the SuperBowl, why can't the Bruins win the Cup? Maybe, just maybe 2016 is the year of mediocre champions. Beats resigning myself to thinking that this...

    3/1 - Bs vs. Flames (Dougie's return)

    I'm going to this one tonight, so I guess I'll try my hand at starting a thread. Go new guys! (And old guys!)

    NFC Divisional Round Game Thread: Seahawks at Panthers

    I guess someone needs to get this up and going... 1 PM ET game.

    The Canon of Cannons - OF arms past

    Rice had an excellent arm.  Not in Dewey's league, of course, but it was strong and accurate.

    Bruins at Panthers - 4-9-15

    Two words: two points.

    @WSH 3/15/2015

    Well, the points are starting to pile up nicely. Hopefully, the B's can pull out a regulation win over the Caps in tonight's 7:30 game in D.C. But a win of any kind moves the B's past Washington in the playoff standings. Let's do it. (Game is on NBC Sports Network.)

    @PIT - 3/14/2015

    B's on a bit of a roll and their next stop takes them to Pittsburgh on Saturday for a 1 PM game against the Penguins.  Nothing worse than matinee hockey, not even listening to the play-by-play of a game of checkers on the radio.  However, with 15 games left and up only six points on Florida...

    vs.TB - 3/12/2015

    Let's keep the point train rolling by getting two more any way we can get them against the Lightning at the Garden Thursday night at 7 PM.  The B's have separated a little recently from the few teams that are chasing them for the #8 seed and are only four points in back of Washington for the #7...
