I think they made Windows 7 too good. There's no reason to upgrade (or downgrade).

I'm surprised at all the people thinking it was intentional. Bochy doesn't really operate like that.


I look at it this way, either everyone operates this way or nobody does. I don't think TLR operates that way, but people seem to think differently because of their preconceived notions.

Hey, that "Prius for everyone" song is Billy Beane's daughter's song from Moneyball with new lyrics.


I would rather watch game 5 of the Nats-Cards series again than hear that high pitched whine again.

I think TLR absolutely operated that way and that he would not have directed throwing at Holliday there.

Cain was trying to come in and missed.

I went hulu watching the other day(on hulu.com and looking at movie trailer) I'm really looking forward to the new Oz movie(not the prison Oz, but the origin of the Wizard from wizard of Oz movie)

All right gents, I'll be gamecasting the last few innings. If the Giants blow this, I won't want to see it happen anyway. Say goodnight to Radioactive Boy for me.

I would say I agree with the latter part, but that was my defense all the time for when people would say TLR did something, "that wasn't when he would have done that".....maybe teams have figured out that the best time to do something, is when you wouldn't have done it.

Which Ant Man? Eric O'grady would bean him, then have sex with his wife on top of the gravesite.
   517. Gamingboy Posted: October 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM (#4279949)
That Ant-Man will have a movie made before most of the Justice League is proof how screwed up WB's movie-making strategies are.

Split the hairs further, Tim! The Giants also won Game 7 in 1912, but Game 2 was a tie, so Game 8 was the decisive one.

WB has all the rights, it's just that they are incompetent and don't have good people like Feige running their superhero brands. Other than Batman, they haven't had a clue what to do with them in years. Although this Man of Steel movie looks more promising than I had thought it would....

At least they didn't rush a Justice League movie out there, Warner Brothers do have a plan now, but I don't have faith in their execution.

They are shooting for a 2015 release.
   527. Tim D Posted: October 22, 2012 at 10:39 PM (#4279960)
So, Verlander vs. Zito. Two former Cy winners who couldn't possibly be more different. And then Fister vs. Lincecum, the nobody who is pitching better than the other former Cy winner.

A JLA movie without a Batman would be like a Avengers movie without Captain America.

Gee, they missed one other guy who was "right in the middle of it" at the ASG who will be back for the Series: Justin Verlander.

It will include a batman, they plan on already doing a relaunch of batman. Also they haven't guaranteed that the actors that play the roles in the movies, will get the roles in the justice league movie... more evidence of WB's incompetence.

When did this happen? I didn't know that!

Marvel's done a great job — an incredible job — lining their assets up, and then having all these movies be solid action movies leading up to the Avengers. It's hard to imagine that the Justice League could be this lucky. Plus, the DC heroes are seriously overpowered. Superman is a league unto himself. It's hard to find a movie situation where Batman could stand shoulder to shoulder with that guy. I would love to see a Wonder Woman movie, though. Lynda Carter a big part of my growing up process.

It is often said that the three hardest comic books to write are JLA, Superman and the Flash.

The Flash is so fast that it's hard to come up with a way in which he doesn't just punch the villain unconcious in .5 seconds.

It's hard to write Superman for the same reason as the Flash, except you add in him being invulnerable, super-strong, able to fly, etc.


And JLA is hardest of all because it requires you to come up with something that could pose a true threat to Superman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (who is far more badass then most give him credit for due to the cartoon's defamation of him), the Martian Manhunter, Batman and occasionally somebody else like the Atom or Zatanna (a witch who can do anything so long as she says a spell backwards). Usually, the answer is "Darkseid" or "Injustice Gang/Legion of Doom/Whatever."

I think all comic book characters could be made into a good movie. My problem with Superman is that the movies tend to focus on Luthor, who is a great serial villain, but is not a good filmable villain. Superman's primary movie villain should be Brainiac. (which they seem against using, it makes sense to have a hero be an alien, but the fans can't accept a second alien apparently, that is just to unrealistic)

Green Lantern could have been a good movie, same with Wonder Woman, regardless of their power levels,(wonder woman would deal with the greek gods, you are talking about a franchise that has Hercules and Pluto as a viable villains; and Green lantern, again will deal with alien threats, no reason to think that they wouldn't be powerful)

Eventually a JLA movie would have to have Darkseid as the villain(but with the Avengers bringing in Darkseid's clone, Thanos, it will seem that they are copying the Avengers, even though Darkseid has been around a lot longer)

Please, Thanos and Darkseid are different enough. Darkseid has a much bigger posse. And a planet that is basically hell. Thanos is just a punk of a god with a crush on death... Darkseid wants to inflict a fate worse than death.


As far as characters are concerned, yes, but Thanos and the fact that he's evolved from gods was enough of a copy from Darkseid, that it's only his evolution as a character that has separated them.

Also, the Sea Captain schtick on the George Lopez show was really funny


I never saw that. I'll have to check it out.

Two of what?

Two people not wearing underwear, I think. But it's obscure enough that it took me a few viewings to figure it out.

JJ, your cat knows the Giants have moved from New York, right?


She's just a big Angel Pagan fan.

Well given that Thanos will be in "Guardians of the Galaxy" first (yes, we will have ROCKET RACCOON in a movie), I'm guessing he'll be more like his current characterization by the time he tangoes with the Avengers and not be the Darkseid clone he originally was created as.

Win expectancy is now .999.


Does that take into account it's the Cardinals? :)

Agreed, but they have a similar enough look that I can see audiences thinking they are clones.

I love me rocket raccoon.

Does anyone get the joke in the ad for New Girl?

She says:
"Is it totally obvious that I'm not wearing underwear? Because it should be..."
"Well, that makes two of us."

Two of what?


I think it means he is not wearing underwear either.

EDIT -Coke to Eric and CFB

The Flash is so fast that it's hard to come up with a way in which he doesn't just punch the villain unconcious in .5 seconds.


It's also easier to convey speed in a comic book by having the Flash in a single pose and put speed lines/blurs behind him.
On film, you either have silly looking sped up arms/legs, or you have him be a computer generated blur, which would get VERY boring after a while.
(At least Superman's speed is only in play in small bursts (catching bullets, outrunning trains, swooping into save a plane), but you ALWAYS have to show the Flash at superspeed..it's all he's got!)
The third option is to film his speed from FLASH's point of view, so everyone else is moving ultra-slow, while he interacts with them.
But that would look REALLY weird...

From my facebook page...Last time the Cardinals lost a 7 game series while leading 3-1.....It was TLR's first year as manager of the team....if this spells a similar quality run for the team, I'm fine with losing this game.

I didn't say whose win expectancy was .999.

Flash would be a cool effect the first couple of times, but it would get old, just like bullet time did.

Man on third less than two outs...can we break through the barrier?
   595. Gamingboy Posted: October 22, 2012 at 11:11 PM (#4280077)
Only way I could see the Flash working would be if he was facing another speedster. I don't exactly see him facing Captain Cold or the Trickster as something that could translate to film well, although the Mirror Master would have some interesting possibilities.
   596. cardsfanboy Posted: October 22, 2012 at 11:12 PM (#4280081)
Of course not.

I think I heard that the plan was Zito in Game 1, Lincecum in Game 2.


It's all Zito, all the time. He's starting every game and going 3 innings.

And there is a 100% chance that Pence has an ADHD prescription for Adderall.
