Thanks to all

Welcome back, homie.

Good luck moving forward. My sister just came out of rehab, too. Pretty amazed at the difference. Hope it lasts.

Both of those contracts strike me as utterly unnecessary. Maybe Chara gets 7 years out there, but the three year deal for Concussion Lad is a bit over anxious, no?

Howard, I think in the long run, I'm going to be receiving a lot more "thank yous" than you will.

Agreed, Spitz. Let's promise to do a playoff pool.

Those young Oilers are going to be fun to watch. They are super fast. Probably some bumps on the road, but were I a fan, I'd be pumped at that talent. Jordan Eberle already with a crazy highlight goal. Out of Hall, Eberle and Pavvrikikkiania (approx.) I'm not sure who's the best or even going to be the best.

I assume no league because no one set it up and the season's started. To be honest, it's so consuming I don't mind taking the year off.

That I'm in two NFL pools for the first time. Dear god, I should have just burned my money.

Knowing weedy, I'm 99% sure it was an invitation for an all Canadian cage match. On the undercard is chicobangs and qbert72 fighting it out over demeaning Quebecois stereotypes.

That's right. Pistols at dawn, Trumphole!

I think if you're a regular and something interests you than you should absolutely post it.* I should do it more. I find interesting things more often than I post them.

*does not apply to tommytrump and his constant updates on the state and welfare of minor league hockey in Canada. Sweet god, too much is too much.

Pushing an Agenda on SportsFilter

Yep - I agree. If God is in charge and has a plan, then he seems to have settled for very little.

Most of my problem with evangelicalism is that it purports to be universal, but is so obvioulsy American in it's makeup. The primacy of the individual, the spectacle and focus on wealth and attaining wealth/personal reward, the notions about Israel, etc. It just sounds to me like a bunch of people claiming a world view, but having such a narrow focus to begin with. It's more about culture than any kind of trancendental truth.

And I know that America gets an unfair shake, there are crazy religious everywhere, but at least those morons in Afghanistan and Pakistan have an excuse - they can't bloody read and many live in poverty.

Good thread and eventually a civil discussion. Another victory for SpoFi!

I find it interesting to watch the cultural war in the West fought in these little battles online. I have a couple hardcore Presbyterians in my circle and they have never let me feel less loved despite my heathen status as a non-believer.

Would you know the right thing if you saw it?

My feeling is that this only works if the current players get behind it. I've enjoyed screaming until I'm blue in the face about other public issues that have gone nowhere, but I think this one is unworkable without some kind of internal support.

I like that we don't do recaps; championship games notwithstanding. Now if something out of the ordinary occurs during a game - then I think there is a discussion there. Actually, I was surprised that no one posted something on Adrian Petersen's record breaking day. And the fact that this guy looks awesome.

NBA Prediction Thread

Simmons likes to suggest that he "knows" the NBA. But, much like baseball and football, he only "knows" about 1/4 of the teams and just glosses over the fact that he has little to no idea about the remaing 75%. 39 wins? Well, I guess that 8 win swing would be the games against the all-powerful Celtics (check with me in January, when KG will be playing with Kedrick Perkins as his 2nd option thanks to P-squared and Ray Ray hiting the trainers table - that team's about as deep as a pie plate).

NBA Prediction Thread

Ahhhh, my favorite time of year. When all the giant heads in Connectticut forget about my beloved Raptors and give them all the ammo in the world to improve. Them guys just don't watch any of their games outside of last years awful playoff series. My team has two teams - 11 players that can play 20 minutes or more, 2 wicked point guards and 2 scoring big men with a host of role players. No team in the East can shoot better, no team in the East is deeper. I just want to get it in writing - because they're all dead wrong. So: East Atlantic-Toronto Central-Chicago Southeast-Miami The Other Five-Detroit, Cleveland, New Jersey, Boston, Washington West Northwest-Denver Pacific-Phoenix Southwest-San Antonio The Other Five-Dallas, Utah, Houston, Golden State, Memphis

Editorializing on the Front Page

my beef wasn't with the "early exit" line. what was the purpose of the FPP? if it was about the early exit, fine. so, where are the links for the 3 teams that also exited early? I like it here, I enjoy the people, the humour and the civility - but let's not turn it all into to pablum. This was an innocuous post with a worthy subject and, by most accounts, a lousy link. Crafty's umbrage was misplaced. There is an interesting story here, and a discussion to be had. This was a seminal game of the last decade if the fallout is to be found true - No Torre? No Posada? No Sandman?. Of course, it could be a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing - but we should be able to talk about it. And Crafty you're one of my favorite contributors, too. But this struck me as an overreaction, no doubt fueled by the timing of what I'm sure was a frustrating end to a frustrating series. And yes, Yankee haters are loving it, but you'll find mostly passive Yankee hate here. I'd be impressed if there was any other sports blog out there that would handle this as classy as we do.

NHL 07-08 Prediction Thread

Wow, Weedy predicts the Devils will miss the playoffs. Interesting. Only because I HAVE to put the Leafs somewhere. What kind of a fan would I be otherwise? And I don't like the Devils. At some point they're going to crap out because they don't hang on to their skill players. I think Gomez is a huge loss to that team. I also put in the Lightning which I'm not so sure is anything remotely smart. They may not make the playoffs. In fact - I'm changing that: Remove Lightning - insert Thrashers and put Florida in where Atlanta currently is. Lightning have no fucking goaltending worth talking about.

Anyone else get spammed by ArmchairGM?

Couple things you might find noteworthy. First, the interesting thing in that archived lockerroom thread you mentioned (and this wasn't apparent from that particular lockerroom thread) is that Dan121377 fellow ended up self-linking the hell out of the front page with his own articles at Armchair GM. I know this because I was communicating with Gary and/or rcade (think it was Gary actually) about it when it was happening. I noticed a correlation in the poster and the links in their FPPs and said something. Secondly, Dan was actually really clumsy (he could also have been posing as a decoy 13 year old girl too. Who knows). If you poked around a little more in the archives, searching out 'Armchair GM' maybe, you would have come across this doozy of a thread where we outed an Armchair GM guy. It wasn't the first FPP he linked to at armchairgm.com where "Dan Lewis" was the author, either. He eventually got banned for it, if I recall. So yeah, I'm the first one to piss and moan about guidelines, linking them to everyone and their mom, send comments to Gary and rcade, but it's really hiding my secret identity as World's Worst Viral Marketer. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids! Jesus, that's elaborate and devious. I hate you - but, goddamn it, I respect you.
