  1. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Now it comes down to whether the Yankees can win an LCS game on the road.
  2. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Dusty Baker snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the postseason since at least 2002. What the h-e-double hockey sticks was he thinking bringing in Scherzer tonight it's one of his most boneheaded managerial moves since Russ Ortiz...
  3. 2017 NFL Season

    I conveniently forgot the NFLPA was involved. I also speculated without reading the decision, now that I have I see what they were trying to do and why the 5th Circuit dismissed. Guess we'll see if they refile for an injunction in the proper venue (SDNY) or if he comes to his senses and serves the suspension.

    At what point does Zeke's legal fees and costs exceed his salary for six games? Going to SCOTUS should they accept his petition, would be at least a couple game checks on its own. Probably time for him to sit his six games. I also tend to think SCOTUS wouldn't hear this case, but that's just me.
  5. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    As a lifelong Yankee fan I didn't expect them to beat Cleveland especially in light of Girardi's boneheaded non-challenge in game 2. Didi reminds me a lot of Tino Martinez in the way he's followed behind a Yankee legend and had success. That said, I don't expect them to beat Houston either but I'm going to enjoy the ride. It's a lot more fun than watching the Giants or Jets.
  6. A jumbotron that big would be perfect for Barclay's Center and their obstructed view seats. Almost like you were really at the game.
  7. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Only prediction I have for this season is the Penguins will be bounced out in the playoffs by the New York Islanders. My thinking is that history repeats itself and the last time the Penguins won two cups in a row they went out to the Islanders.

    This game is moving at the speed of glacial.

    Dear New York Jets, You have one job this season and that's to tank for the #1 pick. Yet in true Jets fashion you can't even do that right...
  10. Travel recommendations thread

    I'll submit Burlington, Vermont for consideration. If you go before the ferry stops running you can go across Lake Champlain from Port Kent, NY which is a nice ride on its own. Though obvious destinations aside if you were going to go to the east end of Long Island, I'd suggest the North Fork out towards Greenport and Orient Point over the Hamptons and Montauk (says the guy who's going to Montauk next week.)

    I haven't been to Kiev though I have friends who live there, nor have I done Georgia, but I'm trying to convince the Mrs that we should go, and I've heard the Azeri visa is a bear to get. I've been to Taipei which IMHO is very under rated. KL is an interesting place in that it's not developed and sterile as Singapore, there's a decent amount to do and it's a good jumping off point for other parts of SE Asia with cheap flights on AirAsia out of KLIA2. That said much of the nightlife I partook in (mostly bars, less into clubs the older I got) were either in or walking distance from KLCC (Petronas Area.) Honestly, the bar scene is what you'd find in pretty much every other city in the world (view bars, expat bars, locals joints, and dives.) The two rooftop bars I went to were the Sky Bar at the Traders Hotel at KLCC which was in the pool area. Nice enough atmosphere but the drinks were pricey. I also went to Luna Bar at the Pacific Regency across from Menara KL off of Jalan P. Ramlee. Did that more because we stayed in the hotel and it was convenient. Nice views of both Petronas and the Menara KL. Jalan P. Ramlee seems to be the street that the majority of clubs are on with the other area being Changit Bukit Bintang which reminds me of Xintiandi in Shanghai. There's also the night markets and late night food spots you'd find in most Asian cities. As for stuff to do, you'd be surprised KL is really developing and there's plenty to do outside the KLCC area (Brickfields comes to mind off the top of my head) and now that the MRT is up and running between that the LRT and the Monorail it's easier to avoid the taxi's. We did Petronas it was decent, and I regret not buying the Petronas racing team Puma t-shirt in the tower gift shop because I never saw it in any other store and it was the equivalent of $75 US. If you wanted to jump to Singapore or Bali from KL you can get a cheap flight as I mentioned on AirAsia and it's easy to get to KLIA/KLIA2 by train from KL Centraal. KL is a city that I would go back to without hesitation.
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    Sadly, I think the jersey the Diamond Backs are rolling out for this looks better than any other jersey in their set. It would look better paired with their black hat with the teal outline. As fashion hats I'm ashamed to admit I like the Mets one and even the Yankees. If MLB really desires to do something along these lines why couldn't they limit to Spring Training. I'm going to be skipping watching baseball the three days this little league/players choice/whatever they want to call it goes on.

    If your issue is fear of flying then I'd suggest reading up on how planes work and what different noises are so it takes some of that away and you know what to expect. If it's sitting in a cramped seat for a long time I'd suggest checking on the airline's site or a site like seatguru as to what amenities are offered on your flight. Flyertalk has subforums for many airlines which you can read to get an idea what to expect on the plane as well. Finally, bring something to keep you occupied like a book or a tablet or a tablet loaded with books. Jetblue has live DirectTV and free wifi, Southwest allows you to watch tv through a downloadable app on some flights for free but if you want wifi you have to pay for it.
  14. And for all these years I thought Chris Creamer was the illegitimate son of the 1986 Denver Broncos.
