  1. NHL 2017-18

    Except the CHL isn’t pro.
  2. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    I thought the whole Britton debacle in last year’s AL Wild Card game was going to put an end to this dumb “save the closer for the save” idea. Maddon chose the pitcher who gave up the most home runs in the NL this year over one of the best closers in the game and guess what, he gave up a walk off homer. The Cubs deserved that loss.

    Justin Verlander: Good.
  4. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    That was one of the silliest games I’ve ever seen. Baseball is really dumb and I love it.
  5. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Don’t be so surprised. The Yankees are built for this. No one is going to beat them when any three of Severino, Green, Kahnle, Robertson, Betances and Chapman are on.
  6. Tom Petty "Pulled off life support"

    Definitely worth it. I’d suggest starting out with his greatest hits album (like Admiral said, it’s essential) and the song “You Wreck Me” and working from there. Full Moon Fever and Wildflowers rock.
  7. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Bryce Harper and his hair rock.
  8. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    My Pens hate comes only from their fans. I love Crosby and really every Penguin of the past ten years (not including Matt Cooke) but their fans are just the goddamn worst. Not that all of them are like that, of course, but enough that it colours my view of the team.

    I feel like this is a good time to point out that you were defending Penn f***ing State.
  10. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    That was such a weird game. Love baseball.

    Their terrifying bullpen also sets them up perfectly for the playoffs. Don’t sleep on the Yankees, they’re scary.
  12. Tom Petty "Pulled off life support"

    Mary Jane’s Last Dance is one of my all time favourite songs and Tom Petty was one of my all time favourite artists.

  14. Your 10 Favourite Albums

    I was listening to music today when I came across a song off an album I had been listening to my entire life, American Idiot. I noted to myself again that it’s one of my all time favourites, and it got me to thinking about what my top ten would be, and how interesting it would be to see others’ as well. The only rule is this isn’t what you consider the ten best albums of all time, that’s different. This is a list of albums that you love or mean a lot to you, they don’t necessarily have to pass the test for greatness. Mine is as follows (order doesn’t really matter here other than Zeppelin IV at the top): Led Zeppelin-Led Zeppelin IV Foo Fighters-Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace The Lumineers-The Lumineers The Gaslight Anthem-American Slang Bob Dylan-Bringing It All Back Home Green Day-American Idiot Foo Fighters-Wasting Light Tragically Hip-Fully Completely The Beatles-White Album Barr Brothers-Sleeping Operator Honourable Mentions: The Gaslight Anthem-The ‘59 Sound The Lumineers-Cleopatra Bob Dylan-Highway 61 Revisited Sam Roberts-We Were Born In A Flame Avett Brothers-I and Love and You White Stripes-Icky Thump Tragically Hip-Up To Here Sublime-Sublime

    At this point, it’s negligent of athletes/writers/broadcasters/celebrities not to protest or talk about it somehow. If not them, who? In western culture these are the ones who are given all this clout and fame and power, and if the government and politicians aren’t going to help then these people need to.
  16. Good Albums With Bad Artwork

    Ah, we've all been there.
  17. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    This is the first time in years I have been truly looking forward to watching my team.
  18. 2017 NFL Season

    There's no way Sergio Dipp is a real name.
  19. Odd Things That Creep(ed) You Out

    Moths. Big, fuzzy, evil butterflies that are the incarnation of evil on this Earth. Ugh.
  20. NHL 2017-18

    Bruins in their black socks look like a minor hockey team dressing like the Bruins. I'm pretty sure I've played against a team called the Lumberjacks with that exact uniform. Bring back the yellow!
  21. The Sports Media Thread

    The [wind noise] at the bottom really makes this.
  22. Good Albums With Bad Artwork

    Avett Brothers-I And Love And You This is one of my favourite Americana/folk albums, but I just don't get the cover. Foo Fighters-Wasting Light One of the Foos' best albums, the only song on it I don't like is "Rope". But the cover is kinda lame, and kinda dumb (For the record, my favourite Foos album is Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace and the cover for that is great). Green Day-Warning I know this album isn't anyone's favourite and doesn't have a great reputation but I like it, damnit. The Horrible Crowes-Elsie While this isn't as good as anything the Gaslight Anthem ever did, I just really love Brian Fallon. The cover, though, is blaaaaah.
  23. 2017 MLB Season

    I mean, you can't really blame them for this one. The DBacks haven't trailed in like 90 innings or something, and JD Martinez went bonkers tonight.
  24. MLB Changes 2017

    These jerseys are stupid, but I do have to say I got a kick out of Aaron Hicks putting "A-A Ron" on his jersey.
  25. Interesting Sports Facts and Statistics

    The inning before that, he became the first to ever lose a perfect game on an error in the ninth inning.
