Big deal! Titans to trade No. 1 overall draft pick to Rams. Details of the deal: The Titans send their No. 1 pick to the Rams for LA's No. 1 (15th overall), two second-rounders (No. 43, No. 45), and a third-rounder (No. 76). Tennessee also gets the Rams' first- and third-round picks in the 2017 draft. The Rams also get the Titans' fourth-round (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) selections this year.

I knew de Jong would bring the stupid to LA when his signing was announced, and I'm still puzzling on why Bruce Arena did it. This is Nigel's second vicious tackle in a season only a month old and, with any luck, the league will slam him with a six game ban. Even so, previous punishments have clearly done nothing to stop his animalistic nature so I expect more before the season ends.

T20 for tennis?
posted by billsaysthis at 10:48 AM on March 24
Is there a reason, other than historical precedence, why women's tennis is best of three and men's is best of five? In any case if the women's tour wanted to go to best of five sets surely there would need to be a transition since the current players have a trained to use their energy up in a shorter span.

I think this would be more of a thing if Rebecca Lowe's husband were the US face and he decided to take parental leave at this point. I mean, the woman actually giving birth doesn't have much choice that I can see nor should she want to; IMO neither should the father who is, after all, the coach of an American soccer club.

The money numbers revealed by the lawsuit are disheartening too--the 18 USWNT players get a whole $72,000 for an NWSL season, the remaining six $51k and the rest of the league $36k. At least the national team players also earn for those games with some bonus money for making the World Cup and Olympic squads and medalling in the tournaments.

Just mix it with my Metamucil and slug it down for the cause. The powder mixes better with cold liquids for some reason.
Thanks for the tip, will file it away on the (can't come soon enough) retirement wiki.

Howard, the studio guy (Robbie Mustoe?) was right and I say that as a dedicated Liverpool fanatic. Both defenses were horrific and most of the goals should never have been scored. But I was happy/relieved after the last goal, that's for sure.

MLB TV reaches settlement on fan lawsuit, will allow purchase of single team packages. MLB lawyers said "they were planning to make the same changes to their television packages as the National Hockey League made when it settled its side of the lawsuit last year. The NHL also agreed to let fans buy single-team packages."

Expected outcome or not, most of the games were entertaining for neutrals. Fresh face from the NFC versus HoF-lead from the AFC seems a decent storyline for SB50.
Note: I am not looking forward to that weekend since I expect Mountain View--the nearest train from SF stop--to be overrun with people in for the game. SFO is expecting 175,000 extra travelers per day that week and many will pass through this city at some point.
