    Please, elaborate.
  2. 2018 NBA Post Season

    I will never understand people who hate LeBron. He’s so good! He’s probably the best basketball player of all time! Isn’t it just fun to watch someone that immensely talented just wreck everyone’s s—t? Can’t you allow yourself to enjoy things?
  3. The Sports Media Thread

    The Ringer’s over-coverage of the NBA is a shame because it overshadows their underrated baseball coverage. They do a better job than anyone of blending the stat-heavy (which I love) and the more journalistic-y stuff that gets the wider audiences.
  4. It didn’t even work! The first team to not touch it and win was Tampa in 2004! I’m all for fun and silly superstitions/traditions but god this one is dumb.
  5. It... might... happen? Washington might make the final? I may need to sit down.
  6. Tampa is looking like garbage in this period.

    Juan Soto of the Nationals just became the first 19 year old to homer since... Bryce Harper. Cool.
  8. It’s not really any consolation, as the last time the Oilers won the cup was ten years before I was even born. I like knowing that my team was one of the best dynasties of all time, but as I never got to experience it, hard to fall back on it.
  9. As an Oilers fan, it’s extremely frustrating to see a team just waltz into a Stanley Cup Final in the their first year when my team has been punching itself in the face for twelve years. As a Canadian hockey fan who wants hockey to succeed and believes that the best way to do that is to put teams in hockey-mad markets, it’s frustrating to see this horrible idea for a hockey team get an advantage in the expansion draft that no other team has gotten. As a sports fan, though? I do have to admit I kinda am okay with this run. Sure they shouldn’t exist in the first place and their team is more stacked than any other expansion team in history, but the fact remains that they’re still vastly overperforming their expectations and true-talent level, they’re playing exciting, fast-paced hockey with unreal goaltending, the story has been fantastic, and they do seem to have created some real hockey fans in Las Vegas, at least for the time being. Is it dumb that there’s a team in Vegas? Sure. Should they be as good as they are? Probably not. Are they capturing the minds of sports fans in a way that no hockey team has in a while? Sure seems like it! Am I finding it fun? Hell yeah I am. Let people enjoy things, FFS.
  10. Well that was pretty f’in lame, Nashville. Not that I’m complaining. Go Jets!

    LeBron is the greatest of all time, don’t @ me.
  12. I’ve never been more sure that a team behind in a series will win the series than I am with Pittsburgh. It almost feels like they have Washington right where they want them.
  13. I know that this game is mostly a product of Hellebuyck being awesome and Rinne having one of his shaky games, but I like to think of it more as the Jets being a goddamn offensive juggernaut (which they aren’t not).

    I know there’s no point in responding but please, elaborate.

    LeBron is a good basketball player.
  16. 2018 MLB Season

    Official reason he was pulled was a blister, which isn’t ideal.
  17. New Jersey’s goal song is the Gaslight Anthem’s “Howl” and that pleases me greatly.
  18. Perds in 6 Jets in 5 Kings in 6 Ducks in 7 Lightning in 4 Leafs in 7 Jackets in 6 Penguins in 5 Jets in 7 Ducks in 6 Lightning in 6 Penguins in 6 Jets in 7 Lightning in 6 Lightning in 6
  19. Humbolt Broncos bus crash

    This is just brutal, their head coach is from my town and coached the Junior B team here for a long time. Heartbreaking.
  20. The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Being an Oilers fan is a hellish existence, I tell you what.
  21. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    Hoskins in the OF is okay, it’s just kind of weird to force him in there when it’s already full with Williams, Herrera and Altherr. As for Santana, despite his iffy batting averages, he draws walks like nobody’s business, and he’s about the most predictable .800 OPS, 3 WAR player there is.
  22. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The best free agent 1B available, but I don’t know why the hell they signed him with Rhys Hoskins at first base.

    Ohtani’s UCL is nothing to worry about. Every pitcher has structural damage in their elbow and every team saw his medicals and no one backed away.
