Re: Olympics (I Like The Weird Stuff)

The games lost their luster with me when Pros took over. Perhaps the illusion of the Olympics being a competition amoungst amateurs was just that - an illusion - but the move to having Pro's compete was alot of greed. Bingo! (sigh) Especially the NBAers, whose earlier loss to France left no unease ...

Re: Olympics (I Like The Weird Stuff)

I hate the hotdog sports such as skateboarding! And the beach volleyball? :barf Good for a little peek-a-cheek, but that's it! Actually favorite Olympic sport might Ski Jumping. I don't think that's a hotdog sport. To me a man flying off a mountain the the definition of badass. Ski-jumping is a lon...

Re: Pistons win NBA lottery!!

Good riddance to Plumlee, btw. He underachieved here. Wow, I couldn't disagree more! I thought he played good team basketball and made his presence felt underneath. A good veteran presence on a young team. The trade opens things up for Isaiah Stewart, and maybe even Garza. Plumlee ceded a lot of mi...

Re: Pistons win NBA lottery!!

That Mason Plumlee deal has me flummoxed. :? Imagine getting traded to move DOWN 20 spots in the second round!

Obviously a cap space move, Weaver ain't done dealin'.

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

Got to say, I thought LeVar improved quite a bit on night #2. Then he must've been downright awful his first night! I didn't see his debut, but his second appearance left me...oh, what's the word I'm groping for...nonplussed? Ho-hum? In any case, he's not the one I want to replace Alex. He has thre...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

Anabi Oil was a site operator for several stations owner by Andeavor before Speedway brought them. The 2 stations that were near me on NorCal flipped from Shell and Mobil to Speedway. This caused 2 Speedways about 100 yards from each other, both company owned. https://www.google.com/maps/@38.925483...

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

George Stephanopoulos was okay, but displayed little regard for the show's legacy of greatness - a game show host he is not.
Robin Roberts simply displayed a forced enthusiasm that I doubt I could handle for another week. Yeah, I know, at least she tried.

Next!

Re: I disagree with our weather forecasters on TV

I'd like to echo the fine job Mike Taylor of WXYZ-7 did last night -- sane, levelheaded, to-the-point, understandable, and very thorough. Kudos! :hat It's probably fortunate they weren't pressured to return to the Olympics coverage. My thoughts are with the Macomb County community of Armada which wa...

Re: Red Wings get an up and coming young goaltender!

Not having followed the Wings or the NHL too closely the past few seasons, is this guy now the de facto #1 goaltender?

Re: Detroit Tigers 2021

I just put $5 on them to win it all. 1000:1 odds for $5,000. Seems like a good lottery ticket anyways. Also $15 to make the playoffs (pays 40:1). I wonder what the odds go to if the Tigers are sellers at the trade deadline. :hat There are no indications or rumors that Avila & Company are willing to...

Re: Detroit Tigers 2021

C'mon guys! The Tigers drafted SS Izaac Pacheco #39 overall! They took OF Austim Murr #165, OF Austin Schultz #285, plus two catchers and a first baseman. Drafting based on need instead of talent and "upside" is what can get you in trouble. Besides, after last night who needs hitters? Or pitchers, f...

Re: Detroit Tigers 2021

Lame draft for the Tigers. I'm certainly not upset with their #3 overall selection, but the lack of position players taken is absurd. You can never have enough pitching. :hat They can eventually be traded for established hitters. Besides, the Kitties have OF Greene, IF Torkelson, and C Dingler maki...
