  1. Hmmm... I wonder how many Good Place or Bad Place points throwing menstrual rags at a bothersome dude is?
  2. If I were on the committee to design an afterlife and I were asked to address this problem, I might suggest having one door for Earthly reincarnation, one door for memory reset, and one door for dissolution.

    I would only support stripping the Astros and Red Sox of their World Series wins if the named winner was determined by a seven game series of Strat-o-Matic baseball games between the Yankees and Dodgers' rosters.

    Last year they should've reunited Outkast for Atlanta. I would watch the fuck out of a Weird Al halftime show.

    When has a Super Bowl halftime show ever sounded promising? Some of them turn out well, but are we ever on pins and needles waiting to see what they do in anticipation? Maybe Lady Gaga?

    Before the playoffs: The NFC is wide open. Anyone could go to the Super Bowl! Now: There was only one good team in the NFC, apparently.
  7. I saw this today! One of only two movies I've seen this awards season. This... and Cats! I love them both for different reasons. Unbelievably tense in the middle as the camping trip starts and they luxuriate and you know it's going to come crashing down. How it came down was of course unexpected. I wonder if this film's focus on class is easier for an American audience to take being a foreign film rather than if it were an American film? Kind of like how you can get away with talking about sensitive issues in sci fi or genre films more than if you made a straightforward movie about it. I really hope this wins Best Picture though I know it'll be fucking Joker.

    Bobby Valentine was on WFAN yesterday and gave an interesting point of view about this scandal. It's very much known that people are trying to steal signs, and that catchers had to be cognizant and throw the coded signs even when there weren't people on base. In his managerial days he knew which places were doing this better than others. He cited the Chicago White Sox as a place that had the reputation of being good at stealing signs. When asked by the hosts if he were managing today and he found out his players were putting together a sign stealing system, would he put a stop to it he couldn't say that he would. It depended on how widespread he felt sign stealing was around the league at that point in time. https://wfan.radio.com/media/audio-channel/bobby-valentine-1

    Not that the NFL Commissioner's office has ever trafficked in facts, but it's been reported that they found no connection between the videographers and the Football Operations: Cincinnati Enquirer Story

    I just realized that Titans at KC would've been the Wild Card Round matchup if NE had beaten the Dolphins in Week 17. What an alternate universe that would've been.

    I think Graham was short. His helmet touched the yellow line and his arm with the ball was a foot behind that.

    Everyone but NE fans: "I'm so glad that New England is out of the playoffs so that we can watch the AFC Championship coached by... [checks notes] Mike Vrabel and Bill O'Brien."

    Mike Vrabel was a first year coordinator of the last ranked defense in the league the year he was hired as Titans' HC. It's almost as if coordinating a unit and being a head coach are two entirely separate skill sets.

    Time will tell. When he agreed to the last one-year contract, he insisted that he be a true free agent this offseason with no Franchise Tag possible. So he's not as married to the Patriots' future as we are used to. It's not as if the Patriots' offense was stocked with the talent that would let a QB to shine this season.

    I think the conversation is going/will go like this: Bill: We want you back, but at this price. (Salary the size of Jacoby Brissett in Indy) Brady: No, I'm done taking discounts. Bill: OK, then you're welcome to look around. I think there may be teams that can convince themselves that adding Brady at his asking price would be worth it as they have teams currently being held back by their QB play. Tampa and Indy are the first teams that come to mind. Good, offensive minded coaches. Some good pieces around the QB. Poor, or limited, QB play. The Raiders and Chargers have been brought up as places that could use Brady as a ticket selling draw in addition to his qualities as QB. Whether it'd be as good a fit footballwise remains to be seen. Now, I'm not saying that any of these possibilities would be advisable or good, it's just that Brady wants to keep playing and Belichick may not want Brady to play for him at a premium cost. The possibility also exists that Kraft would side with Brady and Belichick would go. That also seems inadvisable, but we're in uncharted territory to be sure.
