General discussion on sports and assorted other matters.

  1. Paul Skenes has only made 11 starts. He's the National League's All-Star starter

    More than a decade ago, Stephen Strasburg was the hottest thing under the sun, and there was a push to have him pitch in the All Star Game. Didn't happen. Strasburg retired recently after injuries cut short his career.

    Today, we're learning that Pittsburgh rookie Paul Skenes, who has been hyped to the moon since spring training if you follow MLB Network, will be the NL starter in the 2024 All Star Game July 16 in Arlington. After just 11 starts, including a near no-hitter in his last ...
  2. Of history, hymns, and haters

    For the 2nd straight year, and this is likely to become an annual tradition, "Lift Every Voice & Sing" was performed at the Super Bowl, right along with the "Star Spangled Banner" & "America The Beautiful".

    Written early in the 20th century, "Lift" is gaining new listeners. Unfortunately, it's also generated plenty of hate from conservatives, including Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, who whined about it prior the game. Last year, Colorado Rep. ...
  3. The Belichick era is over in New England. Don't think he's moving on just yet

    Bill Belichick needs 15 wins to pass the late Don Shula to become the winningest coach in NFL history. It's not going to happen in New England.

    The Patriots parted ways with Belichick, with the official announcement made on January 12. Almost immediately, Belichick, proud owner of 8 Super Bowl rings, including 2 as an assistant with the Bill Parcells-era Giants, doesn't need to make a decision right away, and why should he? After 40+ years of coaching, he's earned the right to take ...
  4. Panini is overcharging for their cards. That needs to stop yesterday.

    The card brands change on a seemingly weekly basis at the local Walmart. On Monday, I picked up two 15 count packs of Panini Chronicles football at $8 each, plus tax. Five days later, I was back, and the Chronicles were replaced with Panini Elite NFL and a ton of leftover 2021-22 NBA. 30 count packs for $12.

    Hello, inflation.

    Just because Panini is the only game in town when it comes to football, basketball, WWE, & UFC, the latter two licenses recently acquired ...
  5. An "activist" files charges after getting planted on television. He is an idiot!

    By now, you've heard about Direct Action Everywhere's latest pathetic stunt for attention.

    Before we go any further, DAE is staging these in game protests, first during the NBA playoffs six months ago, and now during NFL games, to call attention to two of their number being on trial for abducting two piglets from a Smithfield Farms-affiliated farm five years ago, claiming the farm abused the piglets and other animals. Smithfield is owned by Glen Taylor, whom I believe closed the deal ...
