BattleBots Beat: Ode to a Giant Robot

Welcome back to the Beat! This week should be the Beaties, a nice wrap-up (except for the bonus fights) and at least cromulent award post, even though there aren't any good fasteners left to have as awards. Nuts and bolts are from BattleBots, the Giant Screw was a joke award,

BattleBots Beat: Still Not a Sweet 16 (and also Your “Hoisting Giant Nuts” Championship Friday Evening Open Thread)

Another Jets Preview in the Underworld, 2019 Edition

Right, this. Uh, shit. I haven't been down in a while, being busy and all. Eh, let's start this and I imagine someone will call and yell at me. So! Another year, another Jets preview. Oh, another coach, this time replacing Todd "Not Sally" Bowles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhIt69v0yzY (I've wanted to use that for a
