    Tampa came into San Jose last night and put on a clinic on how to win a damn game. A potent forecheck and some sloppy play from those old ass Sharks really shows just how far the Sharks would have to go to reasonably be a threat to win a title. I'm not saying it's impossible but it's much damn harder than I thought.

    I think it's a cool design and if there was something similar for Tampa back in '03, I probably would've bought it.

    Hell of a series that could've went either way. I wouldn't mind seeing a rematch sooner rather than later. As for Houston, congrats and all, though I hope I can see a repeat of 2005 on the 15th anniversary.

    Hey, I'm out of relegation for once, so I'm happy. Though I'm well aware if I want to catch any of the Top 10, I need some people to tank and for me to continue batting .700 or better. Needless to say I ain't optimistic.

    Perhaps they could cycle through three or four different options, swapping out drive by drive or say by quarter, rather than sticking with one viewpoint throughout the entire game.

    The only games I've been able to watch with fidelity so far have been Game 2 and 5 and man, were those fun to watch as a neutral observer.
  11. The Sports Media Thread

    To be fair, they are pretty easy to hate. I'd say more but it's easier just to PM Admiral and slander her mercilessly. From what I've come to conclude in 10 minutes of research, it seems like Barstool is a site that covers sports from an edgy, slightly Republican angle that brings about more criticism than sponsors like since we have a battle of two distinct culture in the zeitgeist right now. One end of progressive thought countered by another end of tolerating and acquiescing said progressive thought. The unfortunate thing is you can't really tow the line of making offensive or somewhat controversial content without somehow possibly offending somebody. I'd love to see something like the OSN come up in a nightly late night block for The Worldwide Leader, but in the end, it seems like they didn't find a clear cut way to spin off their own Barstool-esque content, so they tried to outright buy it up, which backfired in their faces.

    In many series, you could argue that a few big plays one way or the other would make the series go the other way. However, in this series, LA seems to have harkened their Kings mojo and have decisively won four of the five games. Even when the Cubs won, it was a tough game by the skin of their teeth. Cubs will be back, no doubt, but this was not the deep title defense they wanted for sure.

    Still cashing them checks from Pittsburgh Bureau of Tourism, eh? Eh, her face looks encouraging but it's hard to tell with the jersey if she's bigger than she may appear. Worth a glance at the least.
