  1. The Sports Media Thread

    On a side note, I hate TV networks that advertise a big event (i.e. Super Bowl, etc.) in a way that makes it seem as if you wouldn't be watching it if it wasn't on their network.
  2. Do Uniforms Matter to Recruits?

    There are certain teams, if I was a college recruit, I would give their uniform as a reason why I didn't go there, rather than tell the real reason I chose not to go there.
  3. Players You Hate

    I may not like certain players because of the team they play for, or their nationality, but I can't really say I hate any of them. They're just out there doing their job, I'm not going to hate someone who hit a game winning home run for the opposition, because the fault should lie with the pitcher from my team and not the guy trying to do his job for his team. So, no matter how bad their behavior is, there is no athlete I truly hate. Maybe it's just my definition of hate, or nobody really pops to mind. On a side note, one of the highlights of my brother's life was getting Shawn Bradley to get into a yelling match with him at a 76ers-Sonics game...
  4. Have any other teams done a throwback to another franchise still in the league? Because, shouldn't Milwaukee wear these? It is their franchise. Do the Royals wear K.C. A's throwbacks? Do the Red Sox have Boston Braves throwbacks? They might, I'm just curious...
  5. Sports Mantras

    Washington Huskies - Bow Down (older one), or Go Purple, Be Gold (newest)
  6. How do we know the Jaguars haven't already given their approval? It seems to be assumed that if a logo is copied from somewhere, it was done without approval.
  7. Worst injuries you ever saw

    I guess this counts as an injury, but at the time (around 1990), my brother was playing high school football, they had a road game in Burlington, and there was a farm right next to the stadium. During the game, a farmer walked out to the pasture with a shotgun and shot one of his cows for whatever reason. So technically, I went to a football game where a death took place.
  8. Doesn't matter how you start, only how you finish...
  9. I went to one of those Seahawks games at Husky Stadium, think it was against Denver. Being 1994, was strange to see the Seahawks outdoors...
  10. Draft picks in their new uniforms 2016

    I wear 37 in adult league softball now and like the way it looks.
  11. To the best of my knowledge, none of the high schools in my league had any sort of copied logos, but now I'm curious will have to check my yearbooks for photos. And all sports through middle school were sponsored by local companies, so even though we were the Warriors, we had a sponsor and had their logos on our uniforms and it was different from sport to sport. Back then, uniform day was exciting because not only did you get your number, but you got to see who your sponsor was.
  12. 2016 NHL Off-Season Thread

    I haven't had Little Caesars since 1997 because my stepmom had some medical issues which the doctors ignored after she gave birth. I was upstairs when my dad yelled at my brother and I to come down. She had started having seizures in the bathroom and was bouncing between the toilet and sink doing a lot of extra damage to herself. We all went to the hospital with a 2-year old and spent most of the day there, when we finally went home later after she was OK, but would have to spend the night at the hospital, we were all tired and my dad told me to check the pizza coupons on hand and we would just order pizza for dinner that night. I pulled out one and said "Here's a good dead. Let's get some Little Seizures" I felt so bad that I can't get anything from there anymore without feeling extremely guilty about it.
  13. NCAA Football Video Game Ideas

    I would like to see the player's choice of post-season system. They can either pick the current system, pick the BCS, the old bowls-and-polls system, or perhaps something not seen before.
  14. The Sports Media Thread

    I look forward to the day when I am allowed to hate a woman in her job because she sucks, and not be heaped on with a lot of "you hate her just because she's a woman".
  15. About the ads mentioned earlier in this thread, I get San Diego Padres ticket ads on the Seattle Times page because I also read about the Chargers, so it's somehow in my history that "hey, this guy likes the Chargers, let's try to sell him Padres tickets no matter what page he's on" As for the draft, I used to watch it religiously, but have stopped in the last few years, just have no interest. I may check the next day or when the whole thing is done to see who my team selected, and if any Washington Huskies were selected, but now I just don't care. Never heard of this Wentz guy until a week or so ago.
