  1. Basically a Sports Show

    I guarantee that Chance came about because Bill Foley thinks he owns the Army, and the Knight is not something that can be lighthearted and fun like a regular mascot.
  2. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    The Rams asked for a waiver... what would the reason to grant a waiver be? They didn't realize how ugly their uniforms would be? Like @Gobbi said above, they would have been fine if they did nothing; they decided to switch to these horrible uniforms just this year. The Rams have consistently underestimated the importance of their uniforms since they've been back in LA. First, it was, "Well, the fans won't mind waiting three years for new uniforms." Now, it's "Well, we'll only have to wear that combo if the home team wears white. NBD, right?" Also, this half-assed unrebrand was an attempt to skirt the rules in the first place; now it looks bad (like anyone looking at it knew it would). They should suffer the consequences of their decisions. I feel bad for their fans and our eyes, but not the Rams. Is there a limit on the number of pants a team can have? Could they have kept a pair of matching pants to go with the blue jerseys? The helmet would have still stuck out, but it would have been a little better.
  3. NHL 2017-18

    The half collars suck, but they're better than the NFL toilet bowl collars were. That's not really something to hang your hat on, though.
  4. The Fox Trax pucks had it, and I don't remember them being blown apart all the time. That could just be an effect of not having every single thing in the world on the Internet back then, though.
  5. I've thought for a while that the glow puck technology could be used to just make the puck blacker and more visible. The execution was very cheesy and 90s, but the idea was solid.
  6. Roads

    Like most things, the change looked horrible at first, and now I think the all-cap street signs look weird and old fashioned.
  7. Perfect post to start a new page with.
  8. Movies, Movies, and Movies

    Hell, I even liked his Avatar. That was before I watched the show, but still. Of course, now I'd like to revisit the movie, and see if my feelings have changed.
  9. Football and CTE

    Yeah, but if he can't remember his kids' names in ten years, it probably wasn't track & field.
  10. Glad the Army's legal team finished the massive bender they were on in time to file an extension. The Creator has offered nonstop evidence that he is ripping off West Point.
  11. Good to see that the guy who did the Mighty Ducks' opening show is still around...
  12. Mission: Pumpkin Delight 2 was a success at a bigger Dollar General. Little Debbie has a product finder on their site, but I'm not sure how accurate it is,
  13. Star Wars Movie Thread

    ( no spoilers, just lols)
  14. The first two were a Dollar General and a Rite Aid; the third was a regular grocery store (Tops). Lots of Twinkies, cake rolls, various pentagonal cakes, etc. but not what I was looking for. Edit: Looked at for store nearest to me... Star Crunch yes, Pumpkin Delight no
  15. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion a 27,000 seat stadium, so GTFO talking about how they sold out anything. Even with "sold out" season tickets, even with opposing fans overwhelming the Chargers' faithful, they still can't sell out a 27,000 seat stadium. It's not just single seats, either; it's a big chunk.
  16. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Just imagine how good the Knights would be if they actually played their best players!
  17. Unpopular Opinions

    I would go across the street from my own grandmother's gas station to save a penny per gallon.
  18. Star Wars Movie Thread

    Seconded. I give Disney a lot of credit for doing what they did with Rogue One, but this is a bridge too far. Also, IF they were going to switch Rey, I think they'd also have to switch Kylo, and I don't think fans will ever forgive him for killing Han Solo (and Leia?). Rey will just flirt with her bad side to keep it interesting, like Luke did.
  19. Unpopular Opinions

    Unpopular opinion alert: sports teams aren't deserving of my "loyalty" any more than my gas station or grocery store. Just do whatever makes you feel good. Life is too short to be bound by a nebulous, one-way loyalty agreement with a business.
  20. Redbox logo change

    The timeline seems backwards to me. If I didn't know anything about it, I'd swear, the red/purple was a late 90s/early 00s job. The new-old look seems to be more in line with the super simple san serif everyone is trotting out these days. I don't like the new look, but I like that somebody is trying something different.
  21. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    My always thinking the Sabres will turn it around this year is starting to turn into the converse of me thinking every year will be the year the Patriots fall back to Earth.
  22. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Eight slashes is one rush up the ice... the refs are just calling some of them now.
  23. Weirdest Jerseys

    His mama was a horse.
  24. I went 0-3 today trying to find either Star Crunch or Pumpkin Delights. Not my day, I guess. If they don't have them the next time I'm at Walmart, I may be desperate enough to track down the bakery outlets.
