  1. MLB Changes 2017

    1990-1993 is as close as we've had. What a time to be alive.
  2. Odd Things That Creep(ed) You Out

    I don't like the forensic reconstructions--applying clay to a skull to try to determine what an unknown victim looked like. In particular, the one of this girl whose body was found in Eklunta, AK. This picture unnerved me so much, I literally had to tear it out of book I was reading.
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    It wasn't meant to be an insult. This is a forum dedicated to the aesthetic of sports logos and uniforms--we're all nerds.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    So, now we are analyzing a screen shot from a video game like it is the Zapruder film? Just when I think we can't be any more nerdy.
  5. NFL 2017 changes?

  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    The Patriots use it on the back of their helmet.

    Except for those sweet, white shoes. I always thought the white "A's" was a good topper for the shoes

    That uniform could be the brown pinstripes.
  9. MLB Changes 2017

    What about the Devil Ray fans who long for the "green" years of '01 - '07? Who speaks for them?
  10. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    No team has anything close to what you have been wearing since 1999.

    Man, the Suns have had a lot of awful uniforms.
  12. The Marvel Comics Movie & Television Thread

    The scene of the other Winter Soldiers kicking ass was a flashback. Zemo's first question to Bucky in the interrogation was about the mission report. Following his interrogation by Zemo, Bucky could only remember that Zemo asked about where he was kept--Zemo needed to know so he could search there for the report. When Capt America asked Bucky why Zemo would want to know that, Bucky said (assumed) it was because there were more Winter Soldiers. We don't know if Zemo even knew about the other Winter Soldiers, but he killed them, because he did not want them unleashed on the world ("did you really think I wanted more of you?"). I don't know if a group of Winter Soldiers could stop the Avengers, but Zemo knew he could not, because "more powerful men than me had tried, but if I could get them to kill each other..." Earlier in the film, he said something about an Empire that "crumbles form within"--that is a reference to the Avengers destroying themselves.
  13. The Marvel Comics Movie & Television Thread

    Zemo's plan was to obtain the mission report from the night Stark's parents died, believing if that info was public, that Iron Man would turn against Capt America and ultimately tear the Avengers part. Had Zemo obtained the report from the Russian colonel he tracked down in Cleveland, then the bomb outside the UN building (that killed the Wakandan king), would not have been necessary. The bombing was a way to flush the Winter Soldier out, since the Winter Soldier could maybe tell him the location of the report (remember Zemo asked Bucky about it during the interrogation and Bucky told him the location of the base in Siberia). Zemo went to Siberia to obtain the report, and the Avengers perused him, thinking Zemo was going to unleash the remaining Winter Soldiers. Luring The Avengers to Siberia was not a part of the plan--it just made for a cool backdrop to have a "final' fight between Stark and Capt America/Bucky.
  14. Historical location markers/plaques (sports related)

    I am a little disappointed that a few of these markers are in the vicinity of historical locations ("a few blocks NW of here", "near this site"). "George Washington slept somewhere near here" misses the point of what makes a place historic.
