  1. So not only did whoever did this decide to do an incredibly petty and lame joke, they also managed to completely mess up said joke by not spelling the name correctly.
  2. Well, why ask us when Consol can tell you themselves via the backpage of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette?
  3. [discovering the hard way that image copying from an ipad doesn't work. screaming]
  4. If the Steelers lose this game I will bicycle from Pittsburgh to the West Virginia border and back.
  5. I'm not quite sure about that. The ECHL tried for years to get an ownership group to either expand or relocate the Reno for literally decades ever since they merged with the WHL, and was never even able to get its foot in the door in even getting an arena built.
  6. The best thing about this game is the first six words of my cable listing description
  7. You know when I heard that Oregon was going to have a uniform based on "actual ducks" I kind of got my hopes up that I'd see something outrageous, like maybe a helmet designed to look like a duck's head or something. Instead we got a boring jersey that looks like it was a discarded concept for the University of Miami.
  8. Sweet Jesus, Louisville's going all Andrew Jackson on FSU
  9. It's been 16 years but it's still just as true as ever, baby!
  10. Everyone's gonna be thinking it, so I'm just gonna say it. The Mastercard logo makes it look like a nude man standing spread eagle.
  11. Well that's interesting. London might be a good location, plenty of people, would get them into the English speaking world making for easier interest in the States and Canada, might have some troubles with generating interest in a foreign-dominated league, but hey, it could work. Only thing I'm not sure about is why a Russian League would be expanding to Southern Ontario.
  12. Grantland was one of the few of these "all-around with focus on sports" kind of websites that I actually frequented, mostly because I liked the guy that wrote the lengthy movie reviews they had there. I think Grantland to a certain extent, at least compared to some others, was able to pull off the kind of departmental magazine feel that I think they were going for, as opposed to Deadspin, and this is the other major reason I stopped frequenting it, which often reads like a sports blog that desperately wants to be a politics blog, or vice versa.
  13. I haven't been to the Ringer yet, and what everyone's said hasn't really given me any reason to, but this description sounds an awful lot like half of the reasons I stopped frequenting Deadspin a while back. I can;t remember the exact time or what the exact stories were, but I remember one time I visited and on the front page there were only two stories about sports, four were reblogs from other Gawker sites, and 2 were those adver-posts about sweet summer deals on speakers.
  14. You know, Edmonton, when two ECHL teams are starting to take shots at your GM I think it might be time to start rethinking things
  15. I think if there's any MST3K set it looks like it's the Nirvana ("Come as you are to my mall, to my atrium...") compound from Overdrawn at the Memory Bank.
  16. I know I complain a lot for trivial reasons and make rash pessimistic judgements around here (not so much as some other users) but if you had told me that I would have gone from posting this: to this: in this season with this team I wouldn't have believed you.
  17. I've been putting off commenting about all this on account of the fact that my remarks would most likely seem sanctimonious and/or conceited, not to mention it would be really petty and somewhat hypocritical to argue over the morality of which teams you root for or against. Some of the complaints made are perfectly logical, some are to be expected in any good fun rivalry, and some are really stupid and petty. That's all I'm going to say. I'm fine with my team playing heel. That being said, I will fight you in real life if you start disparaging the Westsylvanian Dialect.
  18. I tell ya, the Lightning winning is the worst thing to happen to this country since the Dewey administration.
  19. This series is... bonkers. Let's go with that word. It's just bonkers.
