  1. The chemistry and history of the Wanda/Vision pairing in the comics has been very well explored and had huge consequences across the comics universe. I don't know how much of how well it works on screen is because of that knowledge from comics fans or because of the execution itself from all involved. In contrast, the Hulk/Widow relationship came out of nowhere and was awkwardly rendered. I don't doubt that Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johanssen could have chemistry together in the right vehicle. Ultimately, I think Wanda/Vision together feels right because it's so baked into each character.

    Nets fans better hope their owner doesn't get bored of owning an NBA team like their previous owner did.

    I'm shocked, shocked that Kyrie did something wacky and selfish.

    It doesn't help Pederson that Wentz is now nigh-untradeable with that contract. Maybe they could've traded Pederson to the Jets or something.

    Whaddya mean? He got a statue and a book out of all that!
  6. It was fantastic. Rylan’s costume is my nominee for the best in series history.

    It is still possible for the NY Giants to make the playoffs. Or, if things go another way, to earn the #3 overall pick.

    Working on the idea that the league would have the 17th game match up teams with similar records the previous year (I don't think they can go into the season not knowing one of the game matchups by matching up similar records at that time), if we were to apply 2019 records to the 2020 season, this is what the 17th game matchups would be in 2020: Niners vs. Ravens Packers vs. Chiefs Saints vs. Patriots Eagles vs. Texans Seahawks vs. Bills* Vikings vs. Titans* Rams vs. Steelers Bears vs. Broncos Cowboys vs. Raiders Falcons vs. Colts Bucs vs. Jets Cardinals vs. Jags Panthers vs. Browns Giants vs. Chargers Lions vs. Dolphins Football Team vs. Bengals* If I counted correctly, 3 of them are repeat matchups. Statistically around 4 of these matchups should be repeat matchups every year if you do it by matching up records. You can see a lot of volatility this year at least based on which teams were good last year vs. this year.

    Yes. I believe the Jets' overarching problem is the owner, and he remains in place. They will shoot themselves in the foot over and over again. Draft a great left tackle? Great! Let's make him play hurt and aggravate his injuries in the middle of a lost season where you want to lose. Whereas if Jax lucked into a winning combination, they might not totally fuck it up. Or I might just not know enough about their brand of bullshit. They did have a zillion draft picks who left their team and were happy to go. In any case, I don't think they are worse than the Jets. They might approach "as bad" as the Jets, but I don't think they're worse.

    I think he dodged a bullet, tbh. The Jets could ruin any sure thing.

    Congratulations to Jacksonville for obtaining the all important pole position in the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes. Good job.
  12. I still don’t really understand what that remote control task with robots, an office chair, and chickens you had to swap was about. The New Zealand version is refreshing in that the tasks are pitched just right in terms of level of difficult and immediate understandability. You just get it immediately.

    Have the Chargers always had cursed special teams? Off the top if my head, I can think of the two special teams scores given up against the Patriots this season, Nate Kaeding playoff misses, the time a punt returner ran 15 yards backwards to give up a safety, and a year The Chargers had a #1 offense and defense but missed the playoffs due to special teams. Did they ever have good special teams?
  14. Season 10 Finale - Weirdly genuinely emotional? Katherine Parkinson has been so delightfully daft, so much so that I was genuinely relieved a couple of episodes ago when she revealed that she's never had a driver's license. Johnny has really had the pathos up in the past few episodes. I understand that's his thing. And the ending was genuinely riveting. The Karaoke team task was weirdly competentish. The clothes hanging task thankfully simple compared to some others this season and resulted in great physical comedy.
  15. Just curious: What does King cake taste like? They look more like overgrown danish than traditional cakes to me.
