Baggy, The Rock, and Pudge make the cut.

Seconded. I'm not even mad about it anymore, I just don't pay it any mind until the news comes out and then I check their percentages and go about my day. I look forward to the hall of fame meaning something again someday.

Nuggets/Spurs game got flexed off of national TV, which is a shame. The Nuggets over the last ten games, when Nikola Jokic was inserted as the starting center, are scoring 119 points per 100*. For reference, the Warriors lead the league at 116 points per 100 and league average is 108. They are running offense through Jokic and have him bringing the ball up quite a bit. He is probably the best passing center in the league


*The Nuggets are also giving up 118 points per 100 over that same stretch but we don't need to talk about that.

The Block wins for me too but I feel like I'm going to remember the Rajai Davis homer for just as long even if it doesn't check off as many boxes.

NFL Pick 'Em Week 15: Farewell Jeff Fisher Edition

We have a pick'em going with some of the extended family and there's only 10 of us and I have yet to win a single week with basically the same picks I use here. Better yet, after my relatively poor showing this week, my 92 year old grandmother is now a full 7 games clear of me on the season total. She doesn't even watch football unless the boys are over to watch the Packer game and needs a cheat sheet to match the team names that show in the standings in the paper (her only research) to the city names on the pick sheet (you might say use a different pick sheet but my uncle is adamant that she learns that the Cowboys are from Dallas one of these years). Anyway, I just wanted you to know that you might be losing to me but my grandma would absolutely kick your ass at picking NFL games.

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.
