  1. I think these are better than the black/blue that is hard to read courts. Although I still miss the use of the regular arena/college floors. It makes the viewing much easier, especially in a bar setting, like I will be in for Thursday afternoon. If the same colors are used, here are my predictions... Thursday: Milwaukee - green (already showing) Buffalo - red Orlando - orange Salt Lake City - purple Friday: Indianapolis - red. (Already showing) Sacramento - purple (already showing) Greenville - green Tulsa - orange
  2. Cubs clinch NL East in 1984. Bulls championships, especially Game 6 in 1997 (night of my college graduation) Bears Super Bowl XX Blackhawks 2010 Game 6 OT goal, 2013 Game 6 "17 seconds" to win the Cup, 2015 Game 5 to finally have the Cup on United Center ice And finally... Game 7 2016 World life is complete with the Cubs winning the World Series.
  3. My life is now complete...I have now seen all the Chicago teams win the championships (took 41 years for me). However, Cleveland was very tough. It could have been different if the injuries to Brantley, Carrasco, and Salazar (as a starter) did not happen.
  4. Beautiful unis tonight. I would have loved to see the yellow line and the white wording flipped in the end zone to match the uniform number color.
  5. Looking at the distance between cities from, Spokane and Moscow, ID (where the campus is located) is 79 miles and is right near the Washington/Idaho border, and is the closest site with the required seating for them to host.
  6. If they have it this way with the city name on the top side, much improved. Good for finally seeing which game is which when watching with multiple TV's. It will never beat the actual arena floors, but this will do.
  7. In game scoreboard from Xavier/Creighton. Possession is listed under the team name next to the time outs.
  8. Against: 1) Hue Hollins call 1994 - Bulls/Knicks 2) Don Majkowski stepping over the line, and they still called it a touchdown. (1989 Instant Replay game) For: 1) Bears/Lions a couple of years ago, the Calvin Johnson game (possession rule in the end zone)
  9. I have seen many bad a Cubs teams, the worst was not for the record. It was for the attitude. The 2004 Chicago Cubs. They were supposed to come back to he playoffs, but ended up 89-73 in 3rd. Let's look at what went wrong. 13 ejections by players and coaches, several at Wrigley leading to garbage on the field delaying the game. 2 in back to back days (Dusty Baker on 4/16, Kerry Wood on 4/17), LaTroy Hawkins as a closer. Kent Mercker calling the broadcast booth and confronting Caray and Stone, eventually leading to them leaving at the end of the year. Sosa leaving the clubhouse before the final game. Craig Brazell...Victor Diaz...the former's only MLB homer that won the game in extra innings, and also killed whatever hope for the playoffs. That was probably the closest to disowning the team. This was the most hated team I ever saw.
  10. Has anyone noticed the font for the end lines for the women's tournament are different than the men's tournament?
  11. I'm more for the old school, but I understand the reasoning. If it was up to me, it would either be colorized by host, or with the technology, have the arena/host send photos to the flooring company, have the flooring company make the necessary changes, and there you have it. What I think the colors should be this year: First Four - Dayton - red/blue Albuquerque - dark red/silver Portland - green/yellow Pittsburgh - blue/red Louisville - black/red Nashville - red/white Greensboro - dark blue/white Omaha - blue/white Columbus - red/white Boston - brown/yellow (parquet of course) Phoenix - yellow/red Atlanta - black/yellow St. Louis - blue/white Final Fours stays what they're doing
  12. Just saw this on Sportscenter, the same for the Dodgers and Pirates, so it looks like all that have memorial patches have been moved to the chest area.
  13. The only exception I saw was the logo of the host institution (Dayton in this instance) is out of bounds in the corner instead of along the benches. They should at least colorize each floor depending on the host or (I wish) to go back to the regular floors.
  14. My high school, for many years including when I was there, had a recolored version of the Seahawks old logo for football. It was a white helmet with the red, white, and black Seahawk-like logo (we were the Redwings). This year, with a new coaching regime, they have switched to a white helmet with a red B, which is a downgrade IMO.
  15. Probably either 75 for the year I was born, 93 for my high school graduation, or 32, for no specific reason.
