    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    They’ve been a strong 3rd period team all year. I remain confident. Get one early, put the pressure on and tie. Bergy pulls an Orr in 1st OT

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    This 16-year lurker came to work early so I'd be sure to get home in time for the 5PM PDT broadcast start. I just told my marketing department about the $11K behind the goal, on the glass seats (see the Ortiz thread) because that's where our VR cameras are and it will be a great tag line. I...

    2018 Tom M-F&^%$ing Brady: Still Proving It

    I started out as a Mets fan and even as a kid thought Tom Terrific was a kind of lame nickname for Seaver, in a “granted by the teacher” sort of way. If I ever heard TB called Tom Terrific I can’t really remember it but I’m sure I’d have seen it as a Seaver reference, and even if it didn’t...

    Game 3 - Bruins @ Blues

    The organist was playing “Always Look On the Bright Side of Life” instead Earlier the PA was playing Bluto’s “it’s over when we say it’s over” speech. Nice to hear classics from my youth

    For all you VR enthusiasts, NextVR is doing highlights from each game for the finals. Game 1 package just went up, and includes Krug’s hit (at my insistence). We expect to do live games next season.

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    Got to read closer, my bad. Only saw the ESPN3 mentioned and I looked but my cable guide doesn’t say when ESPNews is pre-empted. I couldn’t find some of the QFs at all. Anyway, I still contend national lax semis should be on the main channels and could be better balanced with preliminary...

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    Penn State making it a game after being down 10-1 to Yale, now 14-10 at the start of 2nd half Edit re: women’s coverage- really weak that they couldn’t show the live semis, especially given how much they’re covering softball. The women’s semis games are going to be replayed on U early Sunday...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    At least where I have lived (NY and LA markets), Jeopardy runs on ABC, so I assumed it was due to "synergy"

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    My old company, Synamedia (NDS before Cisco bought us; they then sold it back at a $4B discount) is developing SW that will crack down on password sharing, which I'm sure is a big part of the "cost savings" equation that "cord cutters" (Netflix still comes over a wire you have to pay someone...

    Boomer & Carton

    I hadn’t really followed this so found this a really good overview of an unbelievable story: The Rise and Fall of a New York Shock Jock https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/15/the-rise-and-fall-of-a-new-york-shock-jock

    Harper to Phillies for 13 years, 330M, no opt-outs

    What struck me is when he said (paraphrasing) that from the minute he was drafted he had been asked about where he’d play next and he really didn’t like that endless speculation. This contract eliminates that for a long while.

    January NHL News Thread

    Not sure if this is the right place for it, but in honor of today’s 60th Anniversary of Willie O’Ree’s NHL debut, PBS NewsHour ran this story about racism in youth hockey. https://www.pbs.org/video/after-racist-taunts-hockey-team-rallies-behind-teammate-1547859995/ Unfortunately it makes the...

    Building a Bullpen, 2019 edition

    Got one today on Amazon for $20, I think it was more back during the WS. Felt a little conflicted about the purchase, being out here in SoCal, but my son asked for Xmas

    minorleagueball.com shutting down

    Every single time I see a reference here to The Athletic I think "what an odd topic for The Atlantic to be covering"...and then I read more closely.
