your current laws would make it easy for a mentally unbalanced non-American to go to a gun show and leave with semi-automatic weapons and enough ammo to kill a lot of people. Heck, if I was a terrorist I'd just go to a gun show, spout off a lot of patriotic slogans (ie: I love America, I'm so thankful to live hear instead of [name a country] as life is so much better here) while buying enough weapons to start a small war. Moronic that laws preventing that cannot be put in place due to the NRA and weak politicians.
Costas ragged on a loser team and a losier fanbase. Whoop dee doo, what a non story.
It was of the very idea that any non-championship winning team would have anything to celebrate.
He was, generally, an #######.
That's what the last 20 years of wildcard and more wildcard baseball has done: diminish the value of the regular season. And fans have fallen in lock step with this NFL-NBA-ization of MLB. Not just fans of the Yankees, either. It is how the game is covered these days; it's how it's followed.
Which has nothing to do with Jovan Belcher.
I think a sign of the decline of western civilization would be a sports team not wildly celebrating a come from behind win. Winning is fun. It's, like, better than losing. That pro athletes can get excited about a trivial victory makes me happy, not sad.
Crispix may not have Primeyed with #20, but I'm pretty sure he wins the thread anyway.
Bob Costas Blurs Line Between Illuminating And Illuminati
Eso, are you sure you have time to post something that isn't a screed against Ryan Braun and all the other steroids players? Come on now. Don't lose focus. Those steroids players are getting away with it!!
You know, this is a dumb enough response taken on its own terms as a flailing non-sequitur. But it's even dumber in light of the fact that I've already come out and said that (my anti-PED stance notwithstanding) I think Selig's heavy-handed banhunt against supposed users from Biogenesis is misbegotten, wrong, reliant upon shaky evidence, and predicated upon an outrageous arrogation of quasi-Federal "lying to us is a crime in and of itself" powers by MLB.
But then I wonder if Ray even noticed what I said in the first place. Or whether it 'computed' if he did.
Andy: Of course the other side of that coin is that those people (and you, obviously) also don't care one way or the other if he juiced, but in real life the only difference between their position and mine is the one concerning the Hall of Fame. Neither they nor I (nor you) want to see Bonds brought into the criminal arena, which is why for the life of me I can't understand your "lynch mob" rhetoric. It's a strange kind of "lynch mob" that doesn't even want to see the victim in jail, let alone strung out at the end of a rope.
David: Oh, please, Andy. You run around, parallel to a mob, yelling "witch" while pointing at certain people, and then when the mob grabs those people and ties them to a stake to burn them, shrug and say, "Who, me? I never meant for that to happen. All I wanted was to let people know who they were."
You may not have "wanted" this to happen (whoop dee doo), but you're part of the reason it did happen.
The end of civilization was the invention of the printing press. It's been all downhill from there.
Or lite beer, take your pick.
In your world of absolutism there's no way anyone can be against steroids and still be against judging players on the basis of dubious information**, but then since this position is nothing new to you, it hardly surprises me that you'd keep looking for any opportunity to drag it out again.
Lighten up, all you Francises and Franceses
