  1. Skip Bayless is a horse's ass but his brother makes fantastic Mexican food. So it's a mixed bag for the Bayless boys.
  2. Also, you're a little low on the White Sox. It's iconic! Good list and breakdown overall though.
  3. Opening day, 2021. The Rock is at midfield, welcoming everyone to the NEW XFL. With him as always is Kevin Hart. ”Ladies and gentlemen, this is a new era of football. And it starts right now, as soon as I sign the contract right here, in front of the Millions...” <No chance, that’s what you got> Vince McMahon powerstruts to the 50 yard line. ”Rocky, your ego got the best of you again. Because while you waited for your crowning moment, a check was made out for $15 million. And the name on the check was that of a former WWE Champion. But the name wasn’t Dwayne Johnson. No, no, no. You see, Rock, the name on that check read...VINCENT KENNEDY MCMAHON!”
  4. The city name is French, many of the streets are French names that are just absolutely Americanized/butchered in pronunciation, but the culture isn't that dissimilar from growing up in the Chicago suburbs to me. A lot of South City reminds me of the southwest suburbs, in both good and bad ways. Culturally, there's very little that's French about St. Louis.
  5. Eh, I thought it was solid. Giants. Big Show. C'mon.
  6. I was joking, because he rebranded WCW’s The Giant as the Big Show
  7. I could see them rebranding if Vince McMahon bought the team, from the New York Giants to the New York Big Shows.
  8. I hate the name Kraken, but after seeing the S logo I've calmed down considerably.
  9. That’s what I mean. If it’s the Kraken and other teams know this, the Devils would never post that. So if it ends up the Kraken, the Devils would have Hennan’d it...accidentally spoiling it.
  10. This could be the NHL version of Bobby Heenan yelling “but whose side is he on?!” as Hulk Hogan stormed the ring at Bash at the Beach ‘96. The Devils could have just accidentally spoiled the reveal trying to be clever.
  11. They take turns acting as a sort of executive officer for the week. But all decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a 2/3 majority in the case of more major issues.
  12. And it's better than the Washington Minor League D's.
  13. For sure. I have friends that were saying "well I thought he was prepared to lose money for 2 or 3 years," but even the most pessimistic projections didn't have a $0-$0-$0-$0-$0 for the last five weekends of the season.
  14. Wasn't it that St. Louis couldn't get their crap together, forcing the NFL to go with Jacksonville? I'm not sure if that's 100% true or not, but I'd always heard that the NFL really wanted St. Louis to put together a viable bid so they could award them a team, but St. Louis badly botched the process.
  15. Not sure where to put it, but I saw that the Ancient One of the CCSLC was a contributor to a discussion of the best MLB unis ever worn in The Athletic. Here are some excerpts from his comments.
  16. I don't know for sure why he was doing it, but I do know they save those draft cards and I believe the Hall of Fame has displayed some of them. So maybe it was to preserve some history.
  17. I wanted the Pack to draft a WR for Rodgers, or a stud defensive front 7 guy to try and eek one more title out of the Rodgers era. Having digested this and having watched way too much Jordan Love analysis/highlights, I think GB just secured our next Lombardi Trophy...just not in the Rodgers era.
  18. This thread just got midcardjacked! Mojo is terrible. Wasn't good in NXT, they brought him up anyway. Terrible on the main roster. If Gronk's not coming back next year, cut the dead weight. If Gronk IS coming back at some point, him and Mojo will be tag champs, guaranteed. Back on topic. Falcons unis are trash, and it's worse because there is an A+ look to be had with the Falcons name, general logo direction and colors.
  19. Woo woo woo. You know it.
  20. I'm holding out hope for an infinite regression helmet, but I feel like I'm gonna be disappointed.
  21. Because they thought Hopkins would be too expensive on his next contract
  22. Yes. Trade Hopkins for David Johnson's terrible contract and a 2nd. Then trade a 2nd for Brandin Cooks' bad contract?
  23. What are the Texans doing?
