NFL News:

  • Mike McCarthy, seen right with the only reason he’s still employed, has dismissed all veterans with 6+ years of NFL experience from mandatory minicamp this week.
    • the logic is that, under Jon Gruden’s favourite provisions of the CBA, actual coaching time with players is at a premium, so why waste time with vets who do know better.
  • Jeremy Maclin has signed a ELITE two-year deal with the Ravens.
  • The Broncos had a social media session for all their returning players, to avoid both innocent dust-ups and Antonio Brown-esque problems.
    • Topic 1: don’t guess who is the QB
    • Topic 2: don’t complain about the QB
  • The latest Crimebeat! subject will be Lorenzo Maudlin, Jets running back & alleged nightclub punching enthusiast.
    • He says he didn’t do it, and has proof. All the other guy has is an account of who he thinks beat-in his face.

  • The Patriots’ Super Bowl ring contains 283 diamonds, because fuck them.
    • And who better to let you know that fact than brand-whore Darren Rovell?

Finally, Eddie Lacy made his weight again today, and thus collected another $55000 in contract incentives.

  • ESPN has you covered with a delightful array of Kooky Clauses & Crazy Incentives.

In case you missed it, or didn’t see it because you are American, “Hockey Night In Canada” does the best playoff-end montage in sports.

It’s made extra-special via the appearance of Leafs’ sadness.

I’m assuming WCS is still drunkenly stumbling the streets of Pittsburgh eating raw catfish with his fellow fans.


Tonight’s sports: ooh Lordy, it’s a small order nationally

  • NBA:
    • Game 5: Cavaliers at Warriors – 9:00PM | ABC / Sportsnet
  • WWE:
    • Monday Night Raw – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360
  • International Rugby:
    • British/Irish Lions vs. Highlanders – Tuesday 3:35AM | TSN2

Pretty soon, it’ll just be baseball. HURRY UP, HALL OF FAME GAME!

My room was 85 all day with the air being so wet you could drink it. Luckily we got a Thunder storm come through to drop the temp outside 20 degrees in the last hour or so.

I yearn for rain.

At least this is the hottest day expected this week.

Fortunately, while my apartment can’t keep out heat, it’s remained relatively dry. The reading was 44%.

“Only” 44%……..

Psychrometric chart says; ball sweat maximum (levels off at this point)

My scrotum has responded accordingly.

Some of us only have soccer. Baseball sucks. I refuse to believe anyone actually watches it or cares.

King Hippo

Well…we have the transfer market, which is fucking shittier than following mandatory mini-camp news.

/unless you are talking MLS or sommet, which is waaaayyyyy Lesser Lesser Footy ,, smh

I have the exact opposite opinion. And this is from someone who primarily watches the Padres “play” that sport.

Seriously, though. Soccer has everyone on the field constantly moving, while baseball has a dozen or so people standing around doing nothing for almost the entirety of the game. I can’t see the appeal.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers
Member

And I cannot see the appeal of something that can end in a 0-0 tie, outside of the seemingly few elimination games and offers very few exciting moments when scoring is not happening.

Granted, that last part can be bemused about baseball as well, but at least as hits and outs occur, there can be some neat things happening.

The enjoyment of sports is subjection, thus the declarative statements on the internet.

Sweaty cleavage is apparently also available in many soccer stadiums.

While I don’t follow the sport; the Rockies games are still fun to go to. Downtown, beer, hot day women, beer,

One game in particular; a well endowed and showing woman was about 90 degrees from the field, and was getting mine and my buddy’s attention….. she seemed pissed when we actually watch the game for a while. Sweaty cleavage …….

From an earlier thread but I must share again:
I have an unhealthy obsession with curling. Bring it.

We actually have a curling club a block from the stadium. I’ve been tempted.

I love curling too and some of the ladies are quite lovely.

You’re going to see TOOL? The claw hammer solo in “I Finally Got Myself A Lathe” will blow your goddamn mind!

283 diamonds? Seems completely necessary and not at all like compensation for something…

Corvettes will soon be issued for all players 28 and up.
