Re: Random Sunday Discussion - Best Athlete You've Seen Live

Few that stand out...

Tom Seaver with the Big Red Machine
Gary Payton when he was in full on 'Glove' mode...just a freak on defense.

Re: The Captain Trips Anxiety thread

Does anyone else feel like they are the only ones still taking this thing seriously?

I was on FB a few minutes ago, and someone I went to high school with posted a video...from their kids wedding! With about 80 guests! They were all outside, but NO ONE was wearing a mask. What in the hell?

Re: The Important Sounds of Things Falling Apart

And the cop only knows what the witness told them and the prosecutor knows even less who knows more than the judge. So hard to apportion blame. Even with Kathryn Johnston it was the cover up that got them not the false informant info that got the warrant. That's still allowed. Pretty good breakdown...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election: Joe Biden vs Whoever the Republicans Nominate

Maybe I’m too optimistic, but I don’t see Roberts or Gorsuch going along with a blatantly stolen election. I don't think Roberts would go along with it...he seems way too concerned about the "Legacy" of the Roberts Court. Which is why its so critical they get a new Justice seated before the election.
