  1. I don't think this is hypothetical at all. You're trying to get us to do your dirty work (free consulting...woohoo)! I agree with RichO. Honestly, toss the letter salad idea. Putting the name of the sport at the forefront is probably the best idea with it being a relative unknown.
  2. So...old Blue Jays letters with new Blue Jays numbers? Eww. No.
  3. Saw this, thought I'd pass it along for those interested... http://www.sandiego.gov/mayor/pdf/2015/2016allstargame_factsheet.pdf
  4. The amount of awesome contained in that shot cannot be quantified. It is THE picture to represent FIFA and Sepp Blatter perfectly. One minor nitpick though...if the money is fake anyway, dude should have used $100 bills.
  5. And the Redskins just passed on a chance to pick up Leonard Williams. *sighs*Well, to be fair, the Skins offensive line is by far the worst "group" on the entire team...and that's saying a lot. Defensive line is far down that list. They only had one first round pick and it's not as though they passed on making a selection period. You only get one guy. On a team with so many gaping holes, I'm guessing they just chose to plug the biggest one of them with the best guy they could get. Don't worry, the Skins will likely be in position to get the best defensive lineman available in the 2016 draft.
  6. United States Military Academy (West Point) update: http://www.goarmywestpointrebrand.com/ EDIT: Here's the PDF of the marks, straight from CLC - http://www.usma.edu/dsi/Shared%20Documents/army.pdf. Please note that if you want to use them, you need a special license and will have to kick over a 12% royalty. Enjoy!
  7. Waka cross the street Waka dog on a leash Waka, Texas Ranger Luke Skywaka Waka! Waka, Waka, Wakaaaaaaa!
  8. I made that, Mac. Justin Striebel would have done much better work.
  9. How could he? There are about 153-169 million reasons. :-p Jacoby Ellsbury isn't a trader and he damn sure isn't a traitor either. He's an contractor that made a great business decision. I'm still very surprised to see him get that "Carl Crawford" kind of contract. I sincerely hope that Bryce Harper and especially Mike Trout can stay healthy and ball out for the next several years. Those are going to be some huge numbers.
  10. Saban isn't leaving Bama. Ever. Just like he wasn't going to be the Alabama coach, right? :-p Save all the adamant declarations and "no chance he's leaving" pontifications for ALL of these coaches, man. We'll see what happens when them good ol' boys down Texas way start throwing around eight figure salary numbers. Beyond what Saban does/doesn't do, there are going to be some interesting moves this silly season. I look forward to all of the "GREAT HIRE" posts. Alabama matches them. Next question. The state of Alabama will bankrupt itself to keep Saban. I can't say I disagree with y'all, but I just think it's foolhardy for anyone to scream down from on high, at this point, about how some guy who has a little vagabond in him is now home with the doors locked, fingers in his ears and shouting, "La, la, la...I can't hear you...la, la, la!" Forgive me for not buying the whole, "Well, looky here. Ol' Nick Saban seen the light. He dun gone and found himself cured by the Crimson Jesus. Salvation! Giving thanks and praises to God, Alabama and the Bear! Roll Tide!" thing yet.

  12. Looks like it... http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/chi-jeff-gordon-added-to-chase-field-20130913,0,4955343.story I hope NASCAR doesn't make a practice of messing with the Chase field, but under the circumstances, they HAD to include Gordon. I also hope this decisions puts all this stuff to bed and we can just enjoy the racing from here on out.
  13. Don't forget the requisite "people tripping over themselves to point out how much they don't know who the band/performer is contest!" That's my favorite part...followed closely by the propping up of The County Fair All-Stars.
  14. Now wait just one damn minute. Are you really saying that some group that most of anybody have never heard of should get the Super Bowl Halftime Show because they rocked out the county fair?
  15. Lemme see... classic (ˈkla·sik/) (adj) judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind. So...classic? Oh, HELL no. Nyet. Nu. Uh-uh. Naw. Nothing about this is classic. It's not even a modern classic. It's not an anything classic.
  16. So let it be said, so let it be written a thousand million times. No. One. Gives. Half. Of. A. Little. Piece. Of. Fvck. About. Your. Fantasy. Team. The sooner everyone realizes this, the better. Oh, and Peyton was at least 6-touchdown good on two occassions (2003 and 2004). So, I'd say he's had this in him for a while.
  17. Well, they are both purple (and black).
  18. If a tree falls in the woods, and no one's around to hear it, does it make a sound? TPeezy2...da return!!!
  19. I would never argue that the Raiders aren't stupid but it seems to me that they liked the kid from Penn State more. And it would be really stupid to carry four QBs on the roster. The Jets and Redskins have 4 QB's on their rosters. The Jets kinda brought that on themselves, and I think The Redskins have 4 because their original back-up was injured (the guy that played at Michigan State not too long ago. Collins, is it?) along with RGIII. Then, they would need two more because I believe you have to have at least 2 active quarterbacks- the starter and a backup. New England hasn't needed 3 QB's since Brady went down and Cassel backed him up. Also, kind of off topic, but has anyone else noticed that Terrell Pryor switched his number from 6 to 2 (also the number he wore at Ohio State) Kirk Cousins is the 'Skins #2 and he's 'expected' to be healthy enough to back up. I totally understand TrainRex Grossman as the #3, already have two kids in the QB room, may as well have a grizzled old vet. I don't understand the need for Pat White to get a ballcap and clipboard. As for the Jets. I'll bet a dollar that Sanchize ain't nowhere near healthy enough to play right now...and had he even won the starting job outright, he'd be out for at least a couple of weeks. No inside knowledge or anything, so take it with a grain of salt. I think the Jets just needed someone else on the roster that has taken actual NFL snaps, not that Quinn is any good or anything. For some reason, teams tend to like to have one QB around that's actually played a game, even if he's a stiff (the aforementioned TrainRex Grossman in 2012).
  20. Sup, Buc? Long time, family. Hope things are good for you and yours. Kanell doesn't have his own ESPN radio show (yet). He's been a frequent co-host on Coach & Company, but only recently become a lead "fill in guy" on SVP. Frankly, he hasn't done a very good job. His show, UNITE, on ESPNU was recently canceled for low ratings. If you're gonna watch much college football on ESPN this fall, you'll be seeing quite a bit of him.
  21. Expectedly, I just heard on the 4-letter network that Brandon Weeden and Michael Vick have won their respective QB competitions.
  22. Edited for accuracy. I was gonna post a thread, but then I got high (oooooh oooh ooooh) The smartest thing I've ever said, but then I got high (laaaaa daa da da da da) Instead I look like I'm in phone, and I know why...Why, man? (yay hey) Because I got high! Because I got high! Because I got hi-igh! Sorry...anywho,no one who doesn't call himself "The 12th Man" (whatever the that's supposed to mean) can sit here with more than 80% certainty one way or the other. From my vantage point, the SeaHags' season was never going to depend on Harvin's tender hip (or his migraine headaches or whatever other nagging injuries he will have) anyway. This is the NFL, man. Anything can happen. They could go 5-11, 8-8 or 11-5; all are in the realm of possibility. Lots of other people are going to get hurt, a bunch of people we've never heard of are going to ball their asses off, and quite a few dudes who are "names" are going to be absolute dogs. There is no birthright for any team, especially in that division this year. They might be the favorites (though SF should get that nod, because theoretically the Harvin and Crabtree injuries cancel each other out), but they don't get 9 wins just for stepping on the field.
  23. Yep, dude hasn't aged a day since college!
  24. Sorry to break this to y'all, but going all Team X Super Fan on the message board doesn't make your dick any bigger.
  25. Don't you have a Billy Ripken " Face" card, too?
