  1. Visiting team names in endzones

    1970 regular season, Giants at Saints   1970 regular season, Giants at Jets (at Shea)
  2. I've been watching some old NFL games on YouTube lately since I enjoy seeing the old theme songs, graphics, field art, uniforms, etc. I found a few videos where the visiting team has its name in one of the endzones. Some of them I've seen before, some are new to me. I thought I'd share a few since it fascinates me. I'm sure it's not a complete list, but I'm surprised at how often it happened. 1986-87 AFC Championship Game, Broncos at Browns 1985-86 AFC Championship Game, Patriots at Dolphins 1972 AFC Championship Game, Dolphins at Steelers 1977 NFC Divisional Playoff game, Vikings at Rams 1982 NFC First Round game, Cardinals at Packers (weird red helmets in one endzone) 1970-71 AFC Championship Game, Raiders at Colts 1970-71 NFC Championship Game, Cowboys at 49ers 1977-78 AFC Championship Game, Raiders at Broncos 1979 AFC Divisional Playoff Game, Dolphins at Steelers

  4. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    This is the MaxPreps #1 ranked high school baseball team for 2015 (granted, I don't know how prestigious that ranking is): http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/parkview-panthers-(lilburn,ga)/baseball-spring-15/roster.htm Most of the pitchers play another position. This is the #2 team, all of the pitchers play another position. http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/canyon-del-oro-dorados-(tucson,az)/baseball-spring-15/roster.htm Ditto the #3 team. http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/oxford-chargers-(oxford,ms)/baseball-spring-15/roster.htm   Seems like many big, talent-rich schools often have their pitchers bat to me (the #4 team didn't, but the #5 team did).
  5. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    High school pitchers often hit because they're generally the best athletes and play other positions when they aren't pitching.
  6. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    99.9% of the time, pitchers survive their at-bats unscathed. Are we not going to allow pitchers to field their positions next so they won't get hurt doing that? Kris Bryant hurt himself sliding last year, should there be designated runners so sluggers don't risk injury on the basepaths? Bryant gets paid to hit home runs, not stretch singles into doubles!   They're baseball players. Baseball players hit and play defense. If you're so brittle that you can't swing a bat or run the bases without hurting yourself or if your defense is so bad that teams can't find a position for your .300 average and 20 home runs then you shouldn't be playing baseball.   If you like AL-style baseball and the DH, fine. If you want both leagues to play by the same rules and so you want the NL to adopt the DH, fine. But saying there should be a DH because pitchers might get hurt batting is nonsense.

    If this was the case, which it isn't as other pitchers can also hit (the Mets have 3 decent hitting pitchers), it doesn't matter. Bumgarner would deserve to be rewarded for his skill. He should get to face a lineup of 8 hitters and an easy out while his opponent has to face a lineup with 9 hitters. He should get the opportunity to stay in games longer because the Giants don't have to pinch hit for him, while his opponent gets penalized for sucking.
  8. Ranking the Teams You Hate (All Sports)

    Yankees   It's not worth ranking the other teams I hate because none come as close to these  turds. I was starting to mellow out just a bit with the hatred until Respect Wankathon 2014.
  9. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    If they hit regularly and are taught how to run the bases (and that head-first slides can be dangerous to all players, not just pitchers), then they won't get hurt.
  10. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    But Masahiro Tanaka and Chien-Ming Wang both got hurt running the bases! They shouldn't have to hit--they're pitchers, not baseball players! And they might get a boo-boo running off the mound to field a batted ball. We need a designated fielder too, so these precious angels never get hurt again!
  11. Rob Manfred: BLASPHEMER!

    Because the MLBPA won't go for it. The DH is stupid and the AL is stupid.
  12. Sports Degrees of Separation

    Baseball Reference has this on their site: http://www.baseball-reference.com/oracle/ It's fun to play around with. Seems like Minnie Minoso is in most long chains because of his 1976 and 1980 cameos.  
  13. MLB 2016 Changes

    It was a National League rule since the NL was clearly the smarter of the two leagues when it came to league-specific rules. But the NL only exists on paper now and I don't think the rule exists anymore.
  14. Let The Hot Stove Heat Up: 2015-2016 MLB Offseason

    It's Rickey. Rickey would be upset you didn't spell Rickey's name correctly.
