    NHL 2018-19

    In a vacuum, those Anaheim thirds are great jerseys. One of my favorites. Able to take a modern team and apply a classic styling to it. (Also, for me, the Anaheim wordmark did wonders considering the timing of its introduction (2003) to what the Angels were doing across the street (2005).) However, as the admiral said, they irked me even then because of the color similarities to the Kings. And as wildwing64 said, it irks me in hindsight knowing that these made them think it was okay to go with the wordmark. I'll agree that it's probably an underrated jersey. However, I don't want those brought back. Also, that twitter teaser video the Ducks put out, false alarm. It was just for a bad schedule reveal video.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    All of that is well and good. Really, I get why the Clippers would want their own arena, and if they can pay for it themselves, all the better. The problem is the Los Angeles area doesn't need another arena, let alone one two blocks away from another classic arena. A classic arena that was recently remodeled into one of the premier concert venues in the area. A classic arena that was home to the height of the Lakers franchise.

    Can confirm. Also, where the Clippers are headed, they don't really need another arena either.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Same with these Russia kits today. I would swear to you that they're orange.

    And Clippers fans would form a much smaller circle within that bigger circle. Because they're all good!

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    I hope Sharks fans welcome back Mike Hoffman when he returns to San Jose with the Panthers. No hard feelings. Just a business decision. "I will remember you.... Will you remember me?"

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Absolutely disgusting and bonkers. Like what in the hell. And after Hoffman said they were "150 percent" not involved, a bunch of current/former Sens wives/girlfriends vouched for how nuts this girl is.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I think we need to stop saying that, or at the very least be more specific. Soccer may pass hockey, but MLS won't pass the NHL. MLS, to me, doesn't seem to be any closer to passing the NHL since the first time we said soccer will pass hockey. (There's a reason Men In Blazers jokes about Soccer being America's sport of the future since 1978). Even here in Southern California, the height of the Galaxy never put them over the Kings or Ducks, and even with the popular surge of LAFC, I don't think it's passing the Kings and Ducks. Now around here, Soccer on the whole? When you add in MLS, Liga MX, the USMNT, El Tri, the Premier League, La Liga, Champions League, oh yeah, definitely. Capital-S Soccer will (or has already) pass hockey. But MLS alone, no. So yes, as you said McCarthy, everyone knows what you mean when you say "four major sports", and MLS superfans need to stop getting bent out of shape about it.

    Yeah, these dots suck. And the whole "City, State" thing on the bill really falls off when you get things like "Glendale, AZ" "Sunrise, FL" "Raleigh, NC". The Islanders' says "Brooklyn, NY"

    NHL 2017-18

    It really is a shame that the Caps had to win in their worst possible look. The white isn't as good as the red. The adidas version is worse than the Reebok version. And the whole thing is worse than the slate blue/gold and original throwbacks. Ah, well.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    All while his teams won exactly one playoff series and just 10 playoff games in 5 playoff series. I still can't believe he basically walked straight off the ice/back-up goalie folding chair and right into the GM's seat. The 90s/00s/10s Islanders are truly a specimen to be studied.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    Yeah, it's the classic "I quit" "You're fired" And then the White House has to put out another petty statement this morning saying the Eagles turned their backs on their fans. Like... whatever, guy.
  15. I believe the Kings went immediately to Vegas after one of their Cups. Like, night of, they showered up and hopped on a charter jet. But yeah, cutting out the plane flight makes this a whole different animal. Hell, Ovechkin would probably grab the Cup and run straight out of the arena onto the Strip.
  16. Sadly, there's been an update: Las Vegas Sun
  17. Win *or* lose... the Golden Knights are getting a parade on the Strip: Las Vegas Sun Double that. And people wonder why we're turning on Vegas...

    2018 NBA Post Season

    When you, @ozzyman314, say LeBron hasn't faced a significant challenge in the East since 2012, let's look at that: - 2012 (MIA): 6 games Semis vs. Indiana, 7 games ECF vs. Boston. (5-game win over the vaunted West and the Thunder) - 2013 (MIA): 7 games ECF vs. Boston (7-game win over Spurs) - 2014 (MIA): 6 games ECF vs. Indiana (5-game loss to Spurs) - 2015 (CLE): 6 games Semis vs. Chicago (6-game loss to Warriors) - 2016 (CLE) : 6 games ECF vs. Toronto (7-game win over Warriors) - 2017 (CLE): Besides the 2011 Miami run, only real wash in the East (5-game loss to Warriors) - 2018 (CLE): 7 games 1st Round vs. Indiana, 7 games ECF vs. Boston To say he hasn't been "challenged" is a lie. Sure, he hasn't been beaten. But to say there haven't been challengers is false. Maybe he's just dominant because he's dominant. Maybe those other teams look bad because they keep losing to him. It's that asinine argument that he'd be better off losing at some point to prove he's actually good. To you, LeBron would have been better off losing in one of those 6/7 game series to break up the 8-year streak just to prove that there was a "challenger" in the East. But, fun flip side of that fact, you'd tear him down for that loss because he lost. I'm sorry that LeBron keeps winning, and I'm sorry you don't like him. You can keep grasping for straws to argue against, but I'm done with this conversation. Again, vaya con dios, compadre.

    And why does that bother you, @ozzyman314? Why did you decide now you have to bear the mantle of trying to take LeBron down? Seems to me it bothers you because you're an opposing fanboy. LeBron is lauded for nearly single-handedly beating your Celtics, and you feel the need to counteract that for three days now with "well, he's actually not that great." Look, I'm no LeBron fanboy. Hell, I'm barely an NBA fan. When I paid more everyday attention, I too was a LeBron hater even through the Miami years. But like, c'mon, dude. Real recognize real. LeBron has established himself as one of, if not the, greatest of all time. In the modern era, no matter who the hell you're playing, making eight consecutive Finals is remarkable. And if you can't handle that, then well, idk what to tell you, man. Vaya con dios.

    Here's another question to you then, @ozzyman314: Why do we have to qualify his success? Why can't his success just be his success without it being so blasphemous to you? As @Alex Houston said, why does it need to be one or the other?

    2018 NBA Post Season

    (Sigh... why do I bother engaging...) No, that's not what I'm doing. What I'm doing is using what I've seen with my own two eyes and recognizing how incredible LeBron is and what he's done and not giving myself an aneurysm over a basketball player.

    And you should really quit while you're behind. No. Because we'll just recognize he's great, if not the greatest, and not wring our hands over this sort of petty, bitter, sour grapes bull .
