    2018 NFL Season

    I don’t feel like giving full predictions so I’ll just do the playoffs cause I’m lazy. AFC 1. New England 12-4 2. Pittsburgh 12-4 3. Jacksonville 11-5 4. Kansas City 10-6 5. Los Angeles 10-6 6. Baltimore 9-7 (6) Baltimore at (3) Jacksonville (5) Los Angeles at (4) Kansas City (5) Los Angeles at (1) New England (3) Jacksonville at (2) Pittsburgh (3) Jacksonville at (1) New England NFC 1. Los Angeles 12-4 2. Minnesota 12-4 3. New Orleans 11-5 4. Philadelphia 10-6 5. Green Bay 11-5 6.

    Favorite jersey number?

    My favorite number would probably have to be 8, just because so many great players from my team have worn it - Cal Ripken Jr., Alex Ovechkin, and Steven Gerrard being the headliners. 24 is a close second. I also like 17, 7, and 81.

    How is this man still a head coach?

    Let’s not forget too that this is a man who is 9-39 in three years as a head coach in the NFL. Not sure how he hasn’t been fired. EDIT: Dang, Cosmic kinda beat me to it!

    West Ham have the talent to get to where they were in that one glorious season they had with Payet, but because they have so many new talented players coming in at once, they need time to gel. It won’t happen overnight.

    2018 MLB Season

    I put the “modern” caveat on my post because Jones certainly does not stack up against some of the great players this organization fielded, especially in the 60’s and 70’s. But he is the closest thing the Orioles have had to a legend since Cal. I’ve been an Orioles fan since 2000. In 18 seasons, they have made the playoffs three times and have been competitive for the vast minority of those seasons. Jones was part of the core that actually let this city experience success with its baseball team again. He’s been very involved in the community. And yes, he’s on a steep decline now, but he had a stretch, as you mentioned, where he was a consistent presence at the plate. He won four Gold Gloves and a Silver Slugger. He’s a class act on and off the field, and has been with this organization for 11 years now through thick and thin. On a consistently contending team he wouldn’t stand out. But his longevity, loyalty, presence in the community, and overall classiness have made him the closest thing we’ve had to a legend in a long time. Number retirement may be going a little too far, especially considering some of the great players who came before him who haven’t had their number retired. But Jones stands alone in my mind in terms of the best Orioles over the last decade and a half.

    It’s a new era in Birdland, as one of the Orioles’ top prospects, Cedric Mullins, has been called up and is making his MLB debut today. The catch? Mullins plays CF, the position played by modern Orioles legend Adam Jones. So Jones is playing RF today for the first time since 2007 and had this to say on Twitter. https://mobile.twitter.com/SimplyAJ10/status/1027995552598945794 We don’t deserve him. I hope he stays in Baltimore forever, rebuilds be darned. No one should wear #10 again.
  9. NFL: Browns MLB: Rays NHL: Hurricanes PL (no divisions, one whole league but since I’m a Liverpool fan, I’ll go Top Six): Spurs NBA (not a huge Wiz fan but I’ll answer regardless): Hornets

    So glad the Premier League is back, even if it started with a United win can’t wait to see the Reds back in action on Sunday. Bold prediction: Naby Keita is going to take this league by storm.

    Chelsea are losing probably one of top 3-5 players in Courtois, have a new manager, and could lose their best player within a year or two. They still have Drinkwater and Bakayoko on their books, clogging up the pipeline for players such as RLC. They have a new manager who is know for all our attack, which can be torn to shreds by counter attacking teams like Liverpool. They are teetering for sure, despite a dynamite midfield trio of Jorginho-Kante-Kovacic. And with third season syndrome sure to kick in at Man Utd sooner rather than later, and Arsenal having a good window with a fresh manager I could very easily see Man U and Chelsea finishing outside the Top 6. Big predictions: Top 6 (in order): City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal, United, Chelsea Relegated: Cardiff, Huddersfield, Southampton Golden Boot: Harry Kane PFA POTY: Kevin De Bruyne PFA YPOTY: Ryan Sessegnon

    I’ll go one further and say that the Ravens’ entire look is really good, especially with white pants. Across the board.

    TIL that the Whalers literally played in a mall.

    Did anyone bother to watch the HoF game? Cause I sure didn’t.

    Is it still going to be free on TV or is this asinine B/R Live thing the only way to watch it?

    I like alternate uniforms that are just a straight color swap of other jerseys.

    My brain would've traded Adam Jones. He's an aging free agent who's past his prime and the Orioles should absolutely not sign him for more than a year in the offseason, if they sign him at all. Getting something for him would've been the best thing. My heart, though, wants to see him stay for as long as possible. In my opinion, he's the closest the Orioles have had to a club "legend" since Cal. He's been with the team for 11 years now, always plays hard, always gives his best, is a fan favorite, is a huge presence in the community, and had a stretch there for a couple of years where he was legitimately a great center fielder, on both sides of the ball. If the Orioles had to pick a player from the post-1998 rosters to retire their jersey, they should pick his #10. If he'd take a discount, my heart wouldn't mind having him on the roster in the beginning of the rebuild as a veteran presence from the bench, just so that he can retire as an Oriole and further cement that club legend status.
  18. I guess on the bright side if they never wear the purple jersey and just keep wearing gold on the road we never have to see the side panel.
  19. My hatred for Nike doubles every time I see that side panel.

    Orioles’ (much needed) fire sale continues, as they trade Kevin Gausman to the Braves. I love this deal. Gausman was going nowhere fast with this organization, and despite his huge potential, he never parlayed it into sustained excellence. The definition of inconsistency. Hopefully this doesn’t turn into Jake Arrieta pt. 2, which it definitely could because it’s the Orioles, but I really don’t think so. Great move by Duquette imo (did I just say that?). EDIT: O'Day and his bloated contract that the Orioles refused to give clearly superior releiver Andrew Miller are part of the Gausman deal. Schoop also heads to the Brewers for their No. 7 prospect. Burn it. Burn it all down.

  22. Finally someone else said it. It might look okay if the color closest to the sleeve hole wasn’t the same color as the jersey.
