    It's over. It's done. The Raptors have won a seven game series. Finally. Onto round 2...

    I'll give it a shot. Thanks
  3. Yeah. Skating over the red line before shooting at an empty net = Stanley Cup. Ok. Anyway, the winner of Pittsburgh/Washington is going to steamroll the winner of New York/Tampa Bay.

    Kasich garnered good will at the first debate of note when he said he had no issues attending a gay wedding and wouldn't work to undermine the Supreme Court's ruling, despite his personal religious objections. I see no harm in someone holding his feet to the fire on the subject.
  5. There is NO reason to bump this thread.

    Yeah, Neil Kinnock and Tony Blair didn't know what they were doing when they actually made the party electable...

    It's gonna be ugly. "STOP, PLEASE STOP, IT'S ALREADY DEAD!" ugly.

    Oh man. That's been slow-motion car crash since day one. I'm guessing Corbyn won't even make it to the general.

    That's kind of where I'm at. I feel like crap but every time I replay things I just keep arriving at the conclusion that I did what's best for me. That kind of makes me feel scummy too, but I guess it's part of maturing? I donno. It's something I needed to do, and I've done it. I just feel like at the moment. Thanks though. I really appreciated the response

    Modern. Day. Classic. "Iconic" doesn't do it justice.

    Now you've just lost the plot. There's no way the North/South Stars thing would have ever worked, even back in 1967. That's how out of the date the "Red Sox/White Sox" model is. Also, the South Stars actually existed. As a minor league affiliate of the Minnesota North Stars. See? That's the problem with whole nonsensical argument you've constructed. The North Star is actually a thing you can name a team after. There is no "South Star." So the name "South Stars" for a team only makes sense in relation to the North Stars. Which invalidates your whole "well what if they existed as NHL teams simultaneously?" nonsense. In the end? This is all just mental gymnastics used by people who either can't get over the name "Wild" or who are just old timers who are upset that things aren't the same as they were back in the day. To both groups...just get over it already. The Stars have done more to preserve their pre-relocation roots than almost any other relocated franchise. Sure, the North Stars never leaving would have been ideal. Minnesota just not giving a just wasn't going to let that happen though. So the Dallas Stars actually treating the North Stars' history with proper reverence is a pretty nice consolation prize. And the Wild name sucking has been mitigated by the awesome logos and uniforms. So really? We're in a pretty good place, all things considered.

    My apologies. Though in my defence? It's hard to tell with you sometimes. I also wouldn't say Clinton supporters are taking Sanders supporters' votes for granted in the general. Given that you have Clinton supporters devoting a lot of time to trying to convince you guys to play ball.

    So in your perfect universe there are two kelly green teams with star/letter combos for logos? Sorry, I prefer the universe where Minnesota and Dallas have distinct identities. There's more aesthetic diversity. 1) I would like to see that All-Star template sweater with the N-Star. That actually sounds pretty nice. So yes. Please do concepts, or I just might. 2) How does Dallas get a team? And what's their name? As good as this sounds? I'm not on board with any universe that gives us the Ice Armadillos.

    The Dallas Stars have recognized and continued the legacy of he North Stars since 1993. It would asinine to take their pre-1993 history away from them. It's too late for a Cleveland Deal situation. The Stars have been the North Stars of old for too long to start mucking about with history now. As for the North Stars and Stars co-existing? This is what you (and every other "there are two Sox teams!" poster) fail to realise. The Red Sox and White Sox came about in an era when branding wasn't nearly as important as it is now. If Chicago's AL team were an expansion team today? There's no way they'd be allowed to use a moniker that uses the name Sox. Simply put? The "Red Sox/White Sox" relationship has been grandfathered in, and isn't something you're going to see repeated.

    So... Long-time thread reader, first-time thread contributor. I've broken up with my boyfriend of four and a half years. It's been one of the most painful things I've had to do. I'm not good with breakups under the best of circumstances, and this wasn't that. Mostly because there was no problem with the relationship itself. Basically? I've gotten a job that I would be stupid to turn down. It's also in a different country and half a continent away. And he's pretty much locked into where he is. I tried to put this off for as long as I could but I just couldn't. It was either break up or try to make the long-distance thing work. And I've never thought the long-distance thing could work. I feel like crap right now, and I'm not sure what the point of this post is. Other than to just vent.
