Re: 2018-19 MLB Offseason Thread

Not sure I really understand this trade for the Tribe. Indians get Carlos Santana, trade Encarnacion and Yandy Diaz in three-team deal. On the surface, it looks like the Indians are saving $1.5 million this season and creating another hole to fill in the offseason. I wonder if this increases the cha...

Re: OFFICIAL Eat Right & Get Fit Challenge

I use Strava for my bike rides, walks and hikes, and Lose It as my calorie counter (which I only use when I'm trying to lose weight). Lose It can import my Strava activity but you have to buy the Lose It Premium, which isn't that expensive.

Re: Bourbon

A friend of mine won a bourbon bottle lottery last week and walked away with a bottle of 15-year-old Pappy. He now has a bottle of every Pappy except the 23-year (which he had once, but was consumed by his in-laws while they were house sitting for him; the in-laws described it as “pretty good”).

Watching the Curling World Cup tonight, and the match is China vs. USA in mixed doubles. The Chinese dude shouted “Fuck!” In perfect English after one of their shots was less than ideal. Kinda funny for the commentators to apologize for hearing a Chinese dude drop an F bomb on live TV.

The last time I got a flu shot (about 10 years ago), I got sick as hell two days later. Pretty much vowed to never get another one. To be honest, I'm a fairly low risk for exposure because I work from home, very rarely travel for work any more and don't interact with children very often.

I'm OK with the hire, but I don't get why they took so damn long to make it. It's one thing to wait a year to hire a Guardiola or Osorio or Lopentegui, but to wait that long to hire Berhalter is unusual at best.

And seriously ... how the hell can US Soccer justify not giving Lopentegui an interview?
