How to Watch European Soccer on TV

I usually think building stadiums isn't a great use of public funding but Coors is perfect for Denver. It's the beating heart of downtown all summer and the fans show up even when the team is bad. You can get in for relatively cheap, all the sight-lines are great and if you're seats are in the sun you can watch a couple innings from the concourse. You're nearly guaranteed to see a great sunset over the front range. And yet, here I am, not caring enough about MLB to go.

How to Watch European Soccer on TV

I grew up with baseball as a solid number one, but having no team in my city has broken its hold on me.

I moved to a city with a MLB franchise and lost interest. I've been puzzling over what exactly happened to make my interest in MLB plummet over the last decade or so. I still love the sport, still play baseball, and still love to talk about baseball but can't be bothered to watch MLB until the playoffs. I could comfortably bike to Coors field but go to less games a year than when I had to travel 4 hours to the stadium. I have no explanation.

LeBron James Lifts Cavs to NBA Finals Over Celtics

I think it's pretty impossible to play both ends with the same intensity that you were able to play with ten years ago and if you add in the incredible offensive workload, the sheer amount of minutes, and Lebron's age I think it's unfair to assume he could or should be going harder. The fact that he hasn't broken down and they keep winning suggests to me that he has it metered out about as well as possible. Jordan wouldn't have been able to go wire to wire on both sides of the floor either in 2018... because he's 55 years old. Even in his prime though, I don't think Jordan had that type of endurance effort in him but he also didn't need to be in the shape LeBron is in and no one in the league was.

NFL to Punish Players Who Don't Stand During Anthem

I do assume a lot of players will stay in the locker rooms but even if it is just a few players there won't be any more visual representations of protesting to show on the news constantly so I don't think it will draw as much fire. I think it blunts both the effectiveness of the protest and the anger that is likely to come from it. Though, I wonder if you'll get whole teams opting to stay in the locker rooms as a show of team unity, though that only half-worked for the Steelers last year.

NFL to Punish Players Who Don't Stand During Anthem

They should let the players do what they want and I think the owners are assholes/idiots but my anger at this is blunted by the option of staying in the locker room for the anthem.
