Re: 2021 Masters (the Golf One)

I lost the prop bet on Dottie Pepper bringing up Pearl Harbor and/or Hiroshima since I had my money on the wrong whitey because the comment on Japanese people being naturally embarrassed at success also qualified. Live and earn, amirite? This must've been what I heard. What the hell is wrong with p...

Re: 2021 Masters (the Golf One)

Who was the announcer who stereotyped Japanese people by saying Matsuyama, like Japanese men became demure, or red in the face because he was capable of embarrassment?

Why even bring up something so irrelevant?

Re: Random thoughts/images/shit that makes you feel old thread

They've been the Dodgers in LA a lot longer than they were in Brooklyn. Assuming they're the same franchise (I'm a little lit to investigate), they had like a half dozen names while in Brooklyn before they were named the Dodgers. We're only 4 years away from the Yankees being called the Yankees lon...

Re: Random thoughts/images/shit that makes you feel old thread

One of my favourites as well. That stat about the brewers almost being in the NL for as long as they were in the AL makes me feel very old indeed. Just wait until we get to "the Giants and Dodgers have been in California longer than they were in New York." They've been the Dodgers in LA a lot longe...

Re: 2021 MLB Regular Season Thread

The Gamecast summary says it was reviewed and upheld. If so that’s worse than missing the play at full speed (and I agree it wasn’t obvious, or at least not different from 100 Barry Bonds HBPs) They reviewed whether or not the batter was hit, not whether or not Conforto stayed out over the plate to...
