    11/25 - Post-Turkey Match Thread - Don’t Sleep In

    I live in DC and am Capitals fan. Early in his career, the coach told Tom Wilson the reason he wasn't getting more ice time was because he was "a possession black hole." That's Curtis Jones today.

    Or being offside on more than half the passes he receives. That's fun too!

    GW11: Pre-Remembrance Day Fixtures

    Crazy! Three issues on one goal. I think it should have been disallowed for the push in the back. But Arsenal losing is good for Liverpool, so I'm fine in the end.

    Women’s World Cup ‘23 Game Thread (spoilers)

    Yeah, she's fucking good. Watched her put up a hat trick vs. the Spirit a few weeks ago. That got my attention.

    Nationals trade Juan Soto/Josh Bell to San Diego

    I really like what the Nats got back. It sucks having to trade him, but they're likely a much better team in 2025 now than they would have been. And they weren't going to compete in '23 or '24 anyway. Lots to like in that package of prospects. And quantity to mitigate the risk that some of...

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    Rizzo says the Nats won't "dilute" their return on Soto by attaching a bad contract (Corbin) to the trade. As a Nats fan, this is welcome news, because we're not going to be competitive by the time his contact expires anyway (2024), so the only point in doing so would be to shed salary at the...

    HOF Induction Ceremony 2022 (Big Papi)

    I love this speech by Tony Oliva, but it's getting really fucking hot waiting for Papi!

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Loved the defender who was solely responsible for keeping Ferrera onside being the one raising his arm seeking an off-side. Edit: yeah, like SFIC said.

    David Ortiz on the mend: shooting and recovery

    I don't subscribe to the Globe, so I can't read the piece, but it seems this is a pretty significant development. The investigator concluded that Papi was targeted by the drug kingpin because he felt "disrespected" by Ortiz...

    MLB and MLBPA have a deal

    So teams whose players have done the right/smart thing (for both their team and their community) should forfeit games in "solidarity" with teams with more conspiracy theory idiots?

    The Mainboard MLB Lockout Thread

    I am radically on the players' side. To the point where I'd (almost?) rather not watch baseball this year than have the players accept a raw deal. Some owners want to break the union. I want the union to break ownership. But, damn, you guys are being unreasonably harsh on @BaseballJones...

    5/17- Game 2 Bruins @ Capitals

    As a Caps fan, I'm shocked we're staying with you in this game. The 4-on-4s seem like B's power plays. Also, it's Craig Fucking Anderson! Yikes!

    Pedroia has "significant setback with his left knee"

    And in this scenario, since he's officially retired, he could join the coaching staff. We could use some of his leadership.

    2019 WS - Nationals vs. Astros - Gamethread

    I live in DC, and was at tonight's game. (I always decline to wave my cap for that song - which they play every game in the 4th or 5th inning - just because the song is so god-awful. Anyway, I went to Boston this summer for the time since the Manny-K-Rod game in '07, to introduce my 6 year old...

    East Round 1 Game Thread

    In the Caps defense (re penalty), the refs (and I've read, the National Broadcast) missed a clear 4 minute high-sticking against Carolina in the 2nd. Jensen came off with a bloody face. (The DC station showed it, NBCSN did not.)

    Uhhh ... yup. Clearly Delay of Game.

    Fuck, the Caps look awful.
