  1. 2017 NFL Season

    The Texans did do some pretty hard tanking by not existing the year before. The rest of your point is well taken though.
  2. NHL 2017-18

    Yeah, there was stuff off about the Selanne jerseys (thicker shoulder piping, the collar), which like you said is especially strange since it's almost what they wear now. They really didn't have any of these from two/three years ago in storage? There were similar reproduction issues on some of the Teemu throwbacks from his number retirement and the 2007 Cup replicas for the 10-year celebration last year. And it was great to see the Mighty jerseys (and Paul Kariya) on the ice again, even if just a bit. Although, the Selanne/Kariya Mighty Ducks throwbacks they were selling in the team store were absolute highway robbery at $500 a pop. Asinine.

    Penguins vs Flyers in a Pennsylvania football stadium.... We did this literally LAST SEASON. Don't even bother making new jerseys.

    The future of yesterday comes to life tomorrow which is the day after today which is the future of right now but will be the yesterday of Wednesday which is the future of yesterday where today was tomorrow and thus the future of yesterday which brings us to Tuesday.

    I'm usually more up on my sports medias than anybody should be.... but... ...huh? EDIT: Are you talking about this Ryan/Becca Shultz married man/teenage girl baseball blogger thing? You take the strangest angles on things.
  8. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Yeah, that was a fun one, until it wasnt. But the Ducks also can't go 0-5 on the PP including a major and double-minor. Awful. The injury bug just won't leave this team. Started off camp with Lindholm, Vatanen and Kesler recovering from surgery. Getzlaf and Eaves ended camp injured, with it turning out Eaves has a strange nearly life-threatening immune/nervous system syndrome. Then Fowler twists his knee and is out 4-6 weeks, then Lindholm comes back, then Vatanen comes back, then Bieksa gets injured for a few games, then Getzlaf takes a puck to the face. We learn today that Getzlaf had surgery and will be out two months, then Kase gets kabonged tonight and doesn't return, then Gibson takes a shot to the face late and doesn't return. And Kesler is still more than a month away. Just like... man. Can't we just injure the scrubs? Get healthy, guys. Also, since 3 on 3 OT was instated, the Kings have won 26 of their 35 games that have ended in OT, most OT wins in the NHL in that span. The Ducks have won 7 of 19. What's that? Why would you think I hate 3 on 3 OT? What could be the reason?

    We kind of have that now with Levi Stadium: And we used to have it with Phillips Arena in Atlanta:
  10. 2017 High School Football

    Regular season ended in California, and playoff brackets were announced in the Southern Section. I'll break down the only division that matters to anyone outside of here, Division 1: National No. 1 Mater Dei (Matt Barkley/Matt Leinart High) is obviously the top seed in CIF-SS D1, and it should be easy sailing to the final. Only team within a stone's throw of them in their side of the bracket is fourth-seeded Mission Viejo (Mark Sanchez High). Mission is ranked 19th nationally and has the subplot of legendary coach Bob Johnson retiring at the end of this season. The Diablos have plenty of track stars and college-bound weapons, including Warren G's kid, WR Olaijah Griffin (UCLA). Mission and Mater Dei will have two common opponents after this weekend. Mission Viejo beat Santa Margarita (Carson Palmer High) 28-23. Mater Dei beat SM 70-35. Mission Viejo plays Servite in the first round, Mater Dei just beat Servite 51-7. Mater Dei could play Long Beach Poly in Round 2. Mission Viejo beat Poly 12-7. (That is, if Poly beats JSerra, who MD beat 45-3). Mission Viejo could play Orange Lutheran in Round 2. Mater Dei beat OLu 51-21. The other side of the bracket should be a semifinal collision course for the No. 2/3 seeds, and the only teams that could give Mater Dei a run for it. National No. 7 Centennial-Corona and No. 14 St. John Bosco. Bosco lost to Mater Dei in league, 31-21. Centennial lost to national No. 2 IMG Academy in Week 2, 40-20.

    It's amazing what a creative, relatable offensive coach can do for a QB compared to the garbage Jeff Fisher attempted to execute. This Rams turnaround is on a few things. Fixing the offensive line, adding receiving weapons, and bringing on Sean McVay as head coach and running the offense. The defense was already strong and talented, but add Wade Phillips into the mix as coordinator and that stays quality. The situation around Goff has improved. Goff has time to throw. He has weapons to throw to. He has a coach that knows how to put those weapons into places to succeeds, how to get Goff to get the ball to those successful positions. All of those in turn have made Goff better.

    If they win the Super Bowl this season, they could wear paper bags for all I care.
  17. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Games 2 and 5 are the exception, not the rule though. Those games are baseball (playoff baseball) at its best, but let's not pretend like this is close to average. Last night could've very easily been just some run-of-the-mill 4-1 Dodger win if Kershaw was on, Astros hitting was just a little off, etc.
  18. 2017 High School Football

    Got to see national No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, CA) in person for the second time tonight. Truly, an absolute machine. Honestly, they looked bored in a 51-21 dismantling of Orange Lutheran (No. 7 in the county, No. 16 in the state). The only reason OLu even got 21 points was taking chances, going on fourth downs, throwing either super short quick outs to get the drive moving or deep jump balls to score and taking advantage of the only weakness Mater Dei has shown this season, penalties. Otherwise, OLu was 1 for 12 on third downs and at -35 yards rushing until both teams subbed in their back-ups late. Their QB JT Daniels is a force. His third of five TD passes was probably the most impressive play I've seen a high school QB make. Pressure coming hard, pocket closing, he just stepped up in the pocket, threw a laser to the back of the endzone where through like 3 layers of players he saw his top receiving option Amon-Ra St. Brown streaking across, threw it well before he was there and with the zip and placement that no one except Amon-Ra could react to it. He's only a junior, but he's easily the best QB I've seen in my 12 years of being involved in Orange County football. If he keeps his committment, watch out for USC in 2-3 years. All their back-up QBs should be shaking in their boots right now. It helps having an option like he does in Amon-Ra St. Brown. Freakish talent. Makes at least one jaw-dropping play in every game. Basically, as long as they stay locked in, Mater Dei is your national champion.

    The expansion Vegas Golden Knights are 8-1 to start their first season. The expansion Washington Capitals won 8 games in their 80-game first season (74-75).

  21. The Sports Media Thread

    I delete at least half of the Ringer podcasts that come into my feed without even a listen or a read through the description. There's also a bunch I'll listen to the start of, but delete part way through. Others I'll read the description, fast forward to what I'm interested in (although, Simmons' podcast is horrible in listing it's timecodes. Always way off.) I listen to a fair amount, but I delete a lot. Their problem, to me, is that they're so far into their own bubble at this point. Like, if you weren't listening to any of these from the start, I can completely see why someone wouldn't give *any* of it the time of day. It's a lot of inside jokes and inside threads and the only reason to know half the people on these podcasts is that they spun out from the rest of the Ringer.
