    First MLB Game Memories

    First game I went to was Mets vs. Astros in 1999 and was a good matchup and a good game. Piazza hit a dinger, Astros won in 10 innings off I think a Bagwell hit. Sat in the Shea Stadium Loge seats so there was a lot of tilting the head during fly balls because of the ceiling there

    Not to beat the dead horse, but NBC's graphics are still sticking around for NASCAR, so the Super Bowl graphics are still going to be on the shelf until NFL season at this juncture.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    So Garth Snow and Doug Weight are bumped out of their positions. So, that whole pressure to get rid of Snow thing really did work?

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    The Islanders... might have done a good thing that actually went through for a change?

    Jacksonville Jaguars Unveil Stripped-Down Uniforms

    It's okay. If it had visible outlines (so teal on the white on the homes, teal on the black on the roads) they'd be a bit better. Nothing wrong with going clean, just leaves a bit to be desired given their color palette
  14. Made the orange brighter and more of a pop while maintaining that really nice shade of aqua they had going with the initial redesign? Love it. I think I said this before that for some reason I really liked that aqua that they have, so much to the point that if they went to throwbacks I would rather them keep that shade rather than revert to it.

    Color Rush Thursday is dead

    Although for the most part getting rid of Color Rush is fine, that does mean the Jets lose their best current jersey if they don't promote it to alternate status. Womp womp

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    The Illinois new uniforms are exactly like Syracuse's minus the 44 degree angle lines on the numbers and the shoulder caps. Now usually Illinois and Syracuse redo their uniforms the same time, so maybe stay tuned, but otherwise man that's way too similar

    I like ESPN's new baseball scorebug but it needs to have the bases where a runner isn't on it as white or something. Got confusing thinking the bases were loaded the first time I turned it on

    NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

    Reading this week's Down Goes Brown grab bag and JESUS CHRIST IT'S LIKE THEY WANT THE LOZO TERRIBLE THINKPIECES TO BE EVERYWHERE The other thing that irks me with Lozo is that you more or less can't find a hockey podcast outside The Bobcast, 31 Thoughts, or Steve Dangle that doesn't have him co-hosting somehow. "Oh cool, Down Goes Brown's finally got a podca... OH COME ON WHY'S LOZO IN THIS ONE TOO"

    2018 NFL Offseason

    ESPN's still got the rights. Now it's gonna be on 3 networks with Fox simulcasting the NFL Network feed and my god you thought the NFL couldn't go more overkill, didn't you?
