  2. The Sports Media Thread

    Reading that Dave Lozo was fired by an outlet made me realize "how many :censored:ing websites is Dave Lozo freelancing for anyway, in addition to being on every single non-Bobcast hockey podcast?"

  4. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    So it looks like at long last NFL Network has updated their graphics package after having pretty much the same one from 2009 ...why yes it's simple and blocky with black as a base color how did you guess? EDIT: Screengrab for reference
  5. NHL 2017-18

    @NHLonNBCSports on Twitter has a lot of RT's of team accounts and pics of their own from the media days that they've been putting up. Part of me wants to see a sizzle reel with all 31, though
  6. NHL 2017-18

    Going a little off topic, but I'm getting kind of excited to see what NBC's got up their sleeves with these backgrounds. There's been some cool things for each team they've been pulling out

  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Looks like that's since been debunked and any new uniforms will come next year https://www.nunesmagician.com/2017/9/1/16236884/syracuse-wont-get-new-uniforms-this-year-football-orange-brand-babers-wildhack
  9. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Weeeelllll this can go one of two ways for Syracuse
  10. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    Not sure if there's going to be much changes to the graphics besides the rebrand to NBC Sports, as the CSN's have been using NBC graphics for a few years anyway. Would be nice for SNY to update over to the NBC set, though. Also would be interesting to see if NBC does their Super Bowl year graphics revamp earlier with that in mind or if they wait til the Winter Classic like they usually do
  11. What Are You Listening To?

    I gotta get around to Manchester Orchestra's new album and I've already made my thoughts on Arcade Fire's new album known on Twitter (HINT: I only like two songs off it), but man oh man my hometown band in Brand New might have dropped the album of the year out of nowhere Was expecting something good, but was not expecting it to be this magnificent
  12. Travel recommendations thread

    On the Adirondack part, my family always liked to go up to Lake George/Glens Falls, but I know Lake George/Saratoga isn't everyone's cup of tea given the crowds that can pile up there and the tourist-y nature of it. If it's in the fall rather than the end of summer it might be a bit less crowded. That being said, there's some nice bed and breakfast towns just outside of the touristy areas. Finger Lakes have a lot of nice natural scenery and some good drives if you're into making some rides out of it, like making your base in Ithaca or Geneva and going around Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. Lots of wineries too if you're into that. The gorges/waterfalls are mainly on the southern tips, so Buttermilk Falls and the Cornell campus in Ithaca and Watkins Glen State Park would be on your best bets for hikes and stuff. Otherwise for closer things, the Catskills and Hudson Valley are good for hiking and some small towns, and the Cooperstown area is in the 4-5 hour range too. There's kind of only Cooperstown and Oneonta in that vicinity but the Baseball Hall of Fame's a good visit and there's some good farms and breweries to visit, too. Also the food in the area's real good too, including Brooks Brothers BBQ in Oneonta and the Fly Creek farm and market.
  13. Travel recommendations thread

    Are the Adirondacks too far/too obvious for your liking? If not, I'd say that would be a nice trip. If it is there's quite a bit in the Hudson River Valley for a shorter trip. Also the Finger Lakes region's a nice getaway, as long as you're not planning it when there's a racing weekend at Watkins Glen that would take a trip to the waterfalls there out of the equation
  14. NFL 2017 changes?

    Some decent ones in that bunch that would be cool to run in a game of Madden or to have pocket versions of. Maybe 3 or 4 there that can work for an alt if the NFL changes the rules on helmets, too. That being said, I was getting excited to see what they had come up with for the Jets in green to see if they had found a way to make it work.. just for them to have them in silver.
  15. NHL 2017-18

    That could work out then
