    We can do better

    Ironically, I finally got a real job and have some money, and now that I have a real job I've been so busy that I haven't been on SoSH much (other than the stupid threads for stupid people) and missed this. I'm still trying to build a savings, but I'll toss in some cash. I kind of suck so the...

    Celebrating what is

    Been busy and not on SoSH much lately so sorry if this has been covered. I was wondering how many playoff games TB12 has started so I looked it up. Come Sunday, it will be 40. FORTY. Obviously most of all time. Two and a half regular-seasons worth of playoff games started. Second place for a...

    The Game Ball Thread: AFCDG vs Chargers

    White's early unstoppableness set the tone for the game. Edelman's hustle was noteworthy. The GOATs were GOATy. Off topic, Rivers lost his cool and started to look frustrated early. I remember thinking at the time that in the same position Brady would get angry and focused, and play better for...

    Sons of Peter McNeeley- Boxing Thread

    @Marciano490 I'm watching NFL right now and they are advertising a fight after football tomorrow. Worth watching? I don't follow boxing but have really enjoyed the fights that I've watched on your recommendations.

    2019 NFL Playoff Game Thread - Divisional Round

    Serious question: that play was a sweep, not a reverse, right? For years announcers have been calling that type of play a reverse, but to me a reverse is when the QB hands the ball off to a teammate sweeping one way, who then re-hands it off to a teammate going the other way.

    I stumbled upon the boxing tonight and am so glad that I did. One of the more entertaining nights of television I've had in a long time.

    Yeah, I'm watching now. Good boxing on non-pay per view is nice.

    I don't watch much boxing, but saw the first two fights tonight. It is an awful and beautiful sport and I want to watch more. That young man from Mexico was impressive and classy in victory.

    Mac Won't Recognize Audio CDs

    My optical drive hadn't worked for years. Just recently I half-shoved a tissue into it with a plastic (e.g., insurance) card to wipe it out, and boom, it works again. edit: naturally, if you try this, be careful as you probably don't want to get stuff stuck in the drive.

    AFC Playoff Watch: The Quest for the #1 seed

    Because I spent 5 minutes making it, I'm sharing it. Only 11 data points, but there has been no correlation between NE's opponents' winning % and the differential in the final score when they play NE ( Pearson's r = 0.014 +/- 0.316). Bring on MIN and PGH!

    AFC Playoff Watch: The Quest for the #1 seed

    From FO Playoff Odds, chance of AFC bye: KC: 91.3% PGH: 41.1% NE: 36.8% HOU: 15.% No other team in double digits. Of course and as always, these are for entertainment purposes only, but I guess it at least accounts for remaining schedule in a way. What I take away is that KC is a shoo-in for...

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

    Slight diversion here, but it seems that one -- IMO -- reason to hate the NFL that has seemingly been somewhat forgotten after having been in the forefront not long ago is the use of the "R"-word. I no longer use the racial slur that is the Washington football team nickname. Last month I moved...

    Rename the Red Sox AAA Team!

    I love some of the funnier ones posted so far: good work, team. On a serious note: the Worcester Water? "The Worcester Articulation" would be thumbing our noses at the philistines. Both keep with the trend of not ending in "s".

    Rename the Red Sox AAA Team!

    Dang you, I was coming here to suggest the same thing. I just checked and Bill Lea [sic] never played in AAA, and I can't find any Perrins in BR. If only.

    How about that? Sox are Champs for the fourth time this century

    I'm old enough to remember the dark days when the Red Sox went five years without a WS title. This one puts them ahead of the MFY in series win-% in the WS. One more win and the Red Sox will tie PGH for the best record of any team with more than 2 appearances.

    The Game Ball Thread: Week 9 vs Packers

    Yeah, it's Gilmore. In fact, I think he's the team MVP of the season so far. He's been sooooo good.
