NFL Pick 'Em Week 13: No Tie for Gary Kubiak Edition

Week 13: No Tie for Gary Kubiak Edition

This Bronco fan was 100% behind the decision to try that field goal. If the Broncos had punted into a tie it would feel no better than a loss and it would have been amazing if McManus had actually made that kick, which I think he's very capable of making.

Tim Tebow Signs Minor League Contract with Mets

I was hoping he got another opportunity in football but I will be thrilled to watch him fail at baseball. I'm already enjoying one scout's comment, "An actor trying to portray a baseball player" way more than I should.

>Is what you point to all that much different from past coverage?

You're right that the coverage is the same as it ever was but this type of coverage also seems like it's well past it's sell by date. It seems like a crime to limit coverage so severely in a time when it's possible to show literally everything.

Tim Tebow Wants to Play Baseball

He probably hasn't seen live pitching in 11 years. At this point he's been out of baseball for longer than he played in the first place. If he can actually hit minor league pitching I will be shocked.

LeBron Brings a Championship to Cleveland

I can't stand Dan Gilbert and I think the Cleveland fans acted like a bunch of babies when LeBron left but that was awesome and I'm glad I got to see it.

This has to be the greatest block in basketball history, right? Does anything even approach it in importance + degree of dificulty? I've learned to seek out LeBron on the defensive fast break to watch him hunt but this time I forgot so it seemed like he came out of nowhere to get that ball. It's such an amazing play that Kyrie's cold-blooded series winner is going to be overshadowed by it.

"You know you're taught to throw low to prevent a guy from coming in high."

Yeah, I think it started as this but he tried to throw that ball through his face once he saw where the slide was coming. Considering he stuck his hand, sans ball, in his face two seconds later it looks pretty obvious to me that he was throwing at him. Not that I really care. Both players wanted to hurt, though probably not injure, each other and one of them turned out to be better at it and will pay accordingly.
