  1. I'd change the 1998 World Series to a Padres win over the seemingly unstoppable Yankees. It would have been a great story. Or I'd change the 2010 World Series to a Giants loss... and it hopefully would have curtailed their even year World Series run.
  2. Yeah Baku was a snoozer. For a modern F1 circuit it's a bit narrow in places and frankly didn't produce much in the way of actual racing in the F1 race. And the second GP2 race I saw was a crashing disaster in turn 1 over and over. I mean you know there's little interest in the race when seemingly 2/3rds of the adverts around the track are taken up by "Good Job Baku" and "Baku Welcomed Us" banners.
  3. Yeah I don't see how a city with a WS win in the last 30 years tops a city that's never won anything despite having 4 (or 6 if you count the ABA Conquistadors and WHA Mariners) pro teams in the last half century or so and lost 2 (4) of those teams.
  4. Yeah it really depends on how good the parks were when they opened. I can see parks like AT&T Park, Petco Park, Camden Yards, Safeco Field, etc... being around for decades if not a century. They're well built, have plenty of revenue streams, and importantly have prime locations. The ones being replaced seemingly before their time are the ones that weren't built entirely to the Camden/AT&T model. Turner Field was built on the cheap and as an Olympic park and is shows. Arlington wasn't built with a roof in a place that desperately needs it and was built in BFE so it's not like it's an organic part of it's city like some of the other post Camden Parks. While they all should last for 50+ years I agree that I can see a compromised park like New Comiskey being replaced in the too soon future. But I have a feeling many of the 90's and later parks will become their generation's Wrigleys, Fenways and Dodger Stadiums.
  5. Yep. It's San Diego without question. 53 years if you count an AFL championship, which many don't. No championships at all if you don't. 109 seasons of futility between MLB, NFL, and the NBA. And the loss of 2 NBA franchises in that time. No one has it worse sports wise. Why do you think San Diego embraced minor league hockey so well, they at least produced a playoff caliber product.
  6. Glad to see Mayor Hinch improving with each race. He looked very solid at the GP of Indy. Also very cool that Watkins Glen is back. Don't get me wrong, I had family that were excited about Boston and planning to go. But given the choice between a questionable street circuit or a solid road course I'm glad they're going with the road course. Few street races can be like say Long Beach (still can't believe it was caution free this year).
  7. When they're dead last in attendance and 2 of the new California teams are 2nd and 4th in attendance (and the other 3 were solid) it's not hard to see why they'd roll the dice on another westward move. And Tucson does for the Yotes exactly what the Gulls, Reign, and Cuda have done for the Ducks, Kings and Sharks. They can have a prospect up from the AHL team in less than 2 hours.
  8. I actively follow the Gulls and don't mind at all. Granted I'm on the positive side of the unequal schedule so it's nothing negative for my team, beyond not having as many home games to enjoy. That said, ideally the league will eventually compromise it out further getting all the teams to something between the two extremes now. But for now I'm not going to complain about less wear on our players and less money I have to shell out for season tickets.
  9. Dodger is a bit unique in that it wasn't so much built into the ground, as it was built into the side of a ravine. It's not really below ground when you're in the outfield. Petco Park in San Diego is somewhat opposite of it, with the stadium actually below ground level in the outfield but at ground level for most of the main grandstand.
  10. He's not the mascot of any team.
  11. I hope so. There's no reason to cave to them at this point. The Chargers made their bed in LA, I hope they sleep in it. But they'll be in San Diego for 2016 http://www.chargers.com/news/2016/01/29/statement-dean-spanos Just hope they're prepared for crowds like this....
  12. The Quakes new away kit is actually a lot better than the originally leaked mockup.
  13. Wait... so the Padres finally differentiate themselves a little bit from the Brewers by dumping the sand/barley color the two teams shared and add yellow to the navy, and the Brewers go and copy them? WTF?
  14. Why? What markets are either in that really need NFL teams?
  15. Do we have to pick? I mean they both suck so you really can't win.
