it's like anything else in the world you don't hear about the good things.

Anyone catch the refs helping to ensure a Patriots victory yesterday by somehow taking a play that should have been either an incompletion or touchdown for the opposition and somehow giving the ball to NE.

I still haven't found a good explanation for how that play could have resulted in a "touchback".

They ruled it a catch with a fumble before he crossed the goal line that he did not recover in bounds(supposedly he regained control of the ball after striking the pylon). Now if that is what happened then the ruling is correct but that's not what the ruling on the field was, and unless there is a replay angle not available to the public I don't see clear evidence to overturn the call.

Unfortunately, you're going to live and then die in the "Fantasy Land." The agreement was legal and all the history books and archives things that out live us will forever separate them. You're not smarter than Goddell because he's turned being a horrible leader into a multi million dollar job where he gets to be leader beholden to billionaires who love him being the lightning rod for their brand of evil. Not to mention the fact that it was Rozelle who was Commmish when the Raven's crawled out of Art Model's backside.

 

If I really did care that much, I'd now be inspired to go through the records year by year, to separate the old Browns and new Browns records, just so Indiana Jones the 73rd could discover one day.  :whistle:

 

Of course, at this rate the Browns curse will outlive us and the records of it.

Hmm, that caused my to have visions of the old Thundar the barbarian cartoon, except in their time the ruins of Cleveland would be a cursed and evil place where none of the locals will go near.   :snicker:

Baseball is also safer for your heart. As nothing exciting ever happens and you don't get it going to fast. 

"Baseball is designed to break your heart" -- Bart Giamatti.

 

To my mind, baseball is all about tension -- about the anticipation between the pitches. I know that's not for everybody, and not how everybody sees it, but that's how it works for me.

My kids both love baseball. We take 'em to see the local AAA team play, it's like Disneyland to them. But cheaper.

Yeah, we went to AAA games in Spokane when I was in high school. One of those was the only time I got a baseball at a game.

Yeah, Twitter can be a toxic cesspool. But man I've seen some really nice things there. 

 

Some times you just have to mute things.


"Here's my favorite little fact. If anyone is ever described to you as a nutritionist, just be slightly wary, right? What they're saying may be perfectly true, but "nutritionist" isn't a protected term. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. "Dietician" is the legally protected term. "Dietician" is like "dentist", and "nutritionist" is like "tooth-i-ologist." - Dara O'Briain

Yeah, I never got a baseball, the only time one ever in came remotely close, the guy who got it dived on concrete in short pants to get it.  He definitely wanted more than I would have.
