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

    Yeah, Diego Luna is making himself a lot of fans this tournament. Guy looks like a meatball and is somehow slicing-and-dicing out there. Costa Rica (Tuesday, 7:00pm ET) should have a little more punch going forward, but still be a fairly easy win (thus qualifying us for the U20 WC). The match...

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

    R16 match vs Nicaragua, tonight 8:30pm ET. On FS2, somehow. I would expect a slightly rotated squad, to keep the full A-team fresh (whom you'll see vs Costa Rica in the QFs and Honduras in the semis). Warm up with USWNT vs Colombia at 7:30pm. Can watch the first half of that, and then flip...

    Al Horford - the Celtics' Resurrected Saviour of the Season

    So the rules don't allow you to take a year with salary $X of which only 0.6X is guaranteed, and replace it with a fully-guaranteed $0.8X amount? Wouldn't it be reasonable for a player to believe that was more advantageous to them than the higher-variance option?

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Welp, at least we got to witness the Eastern Conference Revenge Tour. Ending the seasons of the Nets, Bucks, and those smarmy f'ing Heat players was more entertainment than I really deserved. Right now I'm just grateful for the run they gave us. We can largely run it back next year...

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    Turned this game on when it was 14-5. Turning it off now. My bad.

    NBA Finals Game 6--Resiliency

    can't throw it too high for TimeLord. I knew when that happened that he must've gotten fouled, otherwise that's getting slammed down.

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    The difference in this game was "make your free throws" + "a couple of ludicrous ref calls, most prominently the block on Smart that was a charge" + "higher-than-normal number of stupid fucking turnovers". Eliminate any two of those 3 and it's a coin flip.

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    whatever. we're gonna win by more than 3. Not least for the foul trouble GSW is in. We have nobody with as many as 3 fouls, right?

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    what a crazy comeback. I was basically facepalming through the entire first half. The defense was fine, but we just couldn't make the obvious pass out of a double-team or hit the broad side of a barn with our jumpers. And yet, the team is so goddamn talented that here we sit...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I disagree, our world-cup quality depth is not nearly as good as our best starting 11. France could field an entire second roster of 26 that could probably make at least the knockout rounds. Our 2nd-player depth could be decent or could be terrible, depending on health (think CB, or CM). Our...

    Diary of a commentator

    Glad to see you still letting us know how it's going! This thread is one of a handful where I have "notify me of any new posts" checked. Love the Michael Sam anecdote. Bit like The Rookie - "screw these young'uns, I can do a better job myself!" Can you share anything about how the...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    It's been a while, but I remember the original claim of "If ____, I'll eat a log of my own shit", but don't remember the context. Anyone remember what went down that made it a SoSH legend?
