    Women's World Cup 2019

    Probably a good idea. I thought about doing that to being with, but I thought maybe the discussion here would get more eyes, and I think it's an important topic (if you couldn't tell). I'm totally fine with shutting up now, or chiming in in another thread if someone wants to open one.

    Women's World Cup 2019

    Thank you for sharing this. I am appalled that this is still the case some 20+ years after I was a high school basketball player (and softball and soccer) with the same standards. I got T'd up my freshman year in high school for saying "Aww, come on!" after getting called for a reach-in foul...

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    Just as an FYI, the USWNT is the 4th story on my local news tonight - not for their play and their winning, but for causing a "controversy over sportsmanship at the World Cup." Local. News. Do we think a men's team would experience a similar fate?

    Women's World Cup 2019

    As amazing as scoring in the WC would feel, I bet it doesn't get much worse than own-goaling on this stage, in front of your home country fans, and to tie the score. I'm glad they ended up winning.

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    I think I addressed the 1st bolded in the last post I made, or I hope I did. I guess I just disagree that the same standard is being used. And my thoughts on Julie Foudy: she has a long-running gig with the most mainstream sports network in the country and has to make this issue an issue...

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    You’re wrong. I am criticizing, as sexist, the whining and complaining here and in the broader sports world, regarding the USWNT not being respectful enough or nice enough while dismantling an inferior foe on the grandest stage in all of sport, and not understanding the right time and place for...

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    I will absolutely not stop it. The discussing it as if it is about “time and place” is insulting. time and place my butt. It’s ALWAYS about something else when it comes to women excelling at something that is traditionally a man’s domain. Except it isn’t. Ever ever ever. Just because you’re not...

    Are the USWNT being unfairly criticized for their sportsmanship? Is it sexist?

    The man-whining happening in this thread - as far as I can tell all of you are men, right? - is mind boggling. Boo hoo LOL is correct. You just scored your first WC goal, you celebrate. Sorry if it's 9-0 and the other team is gassed. You just broke the individual scoring record in a WC game, you...

    Women's World Cup 2019

    Canada’s last hurrah with Sinclair. They’ve been a tier behind for a bit now.

    She’s like Wambach was for the US, but taller. It seems like she should score on every corner!

    Women's World Cup 2019

    So South Korea looks pretty, well, bad. But France is damn impressive. I’m not sure which of these things is more true in this game, though. That shot Henry just made to put France up 4-0 was *perfect*.

    Game 5 - Bruins v. Blues

    Tuukka shoved that shit call right up the Blues' ass.

    Women's World Cup 2019

    It’s really tough to say exactly what we have here vs. other top teams; the roster has just not been steady throughout the past year due to injuries and the staff trying to get a look at everyone. If we recall, in 2015 we basically changed attack methods mid tournament as Ellis realized that...

    Modem/Router Combo for Comcast XFinity

    Hi All - we are changing our ISP/Cable from Verizon FIOS to Comcast/XFinity. Our Verizon deal ended and they were unwilling to come down on a new package/price that was anywhere close to Comcast. We're going month to month so we can yank the cable part if we decide to cut the cord and go with a...

    Game 1 - Bruins v. Blues

    I lurk but do not comment in these threads. But as a woman who spent 10 years on Long Island within a 10 minute ride of the unmatched greatness that is A&S Bagels, I ask, what in the holy fucking hell is this shit? I had no particular ill will toward the Blues prior to seeing this picture. But...

    2019 Masters

    I enjoyed the audible "Shit!" from Johnson when he made contact. That was fun to watch.

    And boom, tied for the lead for at least a few minutes.

    2019 Masters

    His round to this point has been so methodical. Literally just going about his business, making sound choices. He'd be leading if his putter was completely on his side for 10 feet and in.
