    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    The beginning of that stretch was right when I got back on board after basically losing interest in baseball when I was 11 and Yaz retired. I'd just turned 21, a friend had an extra bleacher ticket, and I figured that it was a nice night and I could just hang out and drink. Walking to the park...

    (t)PSRT - (temporary) Post-Season Rooting Transference

    Mets. I've lived in NYC for 25 years and they're my baseball mistress. Their '15 run was such a blast - I want to see them seal the deal and put it in the books. Second would be Cleveland - it's a suprisingly fun town, they haven't won in three quarters of a century, and Tito. I wish I liked...

    That was against Baltimore, right? I totally forgot Steve Pearce existed between mid '19 and this thread, to be honest.

    Replacing a Samsung Galaxy S8+ Phone

    Good point about the SD card. I don't even keep music on my phone - it's probably just holdover storage paranoia from the dark ages. Anyway, I'm really digging the S12+. The on-screen interface is basically the same as the S10 and having both buttons on one side takes a little getting used to...

    Replacing a Samsung Galaxy S8+ Phone

    I just upgraded from my S10+ to the S21+ yesterday. I'm still getting used to things but so far I'm impressed - everything is fast, from the general interface to the 5G. I'm not happy about the lack of SD card memory expansion, though. I'll let you know how things shake out as I get used to it.

    Rheal Cormier dead of cancer at 53

    Aw, man. Late '90s Virtual Rheality was a blast. I ran into him on 42nd Street on my lunch break during the '99 ALCS and chatted with him for a couple of minutes - he was a really nice guy. R.I.P., Frenchy.

    Non-Streaming Alternatives to iTunes/iPod

    I bought a Fiio X5 (3rd generation) a couple of years ago and love it. The memory is expandable to at least 256GB. It has bluetooth, but I never use it. The sound is incredible - far beyond my old iPod classic. That said, the interface and the controls are goofy as hell. Everything just...

    Looking for hifi audio help... plunge into vinyl

    I like direct over belt due to the accuracy of RPMs as well as the fact that I don't have to worry about it wearing out as quickly, at least, as a belt. A lot of people prefer belts due to the fact that they're quieter, but I've never noticed my DD causing any vibrations, distortion, etc. My...

    Looking for hifi audio help... plunge into vinyl

    I'd hang on to your receiver for the time being - the photo preamp is a plus and even though the '90s don't seem that long ago, stuff was made a lot more solid back then. I'm not a fan of the Pro-Ject TT. A couple of friends have them and they don't have auto-return (so you have to get up and...

    October 27, 2004: Where were you/Best Memory?

    I watched the last 2 games of the ALCS and the first 3 games of the WS alone in my apartment so I could have an ongoing nervous breakdown in peace.  I worked fairly close to the Riv, and had spent the better part of the last 3 seasons there, so when a fellow regular offered to sneak me in...
