    I grew up with guys who got into fights over yankee vs Mets announcers. Kiner, Nelson and Murphy vs rizzuto, white and messer.

    Do you have any good stories from the Civil War to share with us

    RLLOL!  I watched a few minutes of the original on TV yesterday.  First thing my wife says is, "wow, Cruise looks really short in that flight suit".   I had to concur.

    Also, the scene in the bar where they sing "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" is about as big a douche chill inducing as possible. Overall, outside of Tom Skerritt who can do no wrong in my book, the acting is atrocious.

    Who the **** watches Top Gun for the acting

    It's impossible for me to watch a game with my son without making him nuts talking about the "old NBA".   I went off the other night watching guards go right down the lane without a center in the entire arena let alone in the key.  

    Remember when we all lambasted Patrick Ewing for hanging by the three point line instead of under the basket?   Now, that's the game.  I respect the incredible skill the modern players have shooting the ball from deep.  But it has really changed the dynamic of the game.

    The rules are a part of it but it’s equally the fact that a bunch of stats nerds looked at decades worth of numbers and realized there really isn’t all that much of a difference between a 3 and a mid-range, and the negligible difference that is there makes settling for 2 stupid. That’s really the genesis of it all. The hand checking rules were changed way before the Warriors came along.

    Have to be honest here....Michael Kay, who you either love or can't stand, depending on the day, said that Mets fans ought to be thrilled that they got him in that deal. As he put it then....."he's way more than a throw in."

    Amen to that. If they can get McGill back sooner than later, Bassit-McGill-Cookie-Peterson isn’t ideal but it’s also not god awful to get them into mid July.

    May finally be healthy. Hit 96 his last time out. Petterson has really manned up this year so far.

    It seems like they’re trying to avoid it if possible until Megill gets back. If the offense can keep this up for another week I wonder if they hold off. I’d like to see the guy called up already it’s been like 6 years. Even if it’s just for a few innings work in a start or two.

    I wonder if any of us ever fathomed being this thankful that they got Cookie in the Lindor deal.

  6. Full disclaimer here I am a huge Breaking Bad and Saul fan. I'm seen both series multiple times. I've been rewatching some early BB episodes while having to do some traveling for work, and I finally realized a really huge plot hole. 

    Walt does not have a PhD, and the story seems to be that he doesn't finish his graduate program after his falling out with Gretchen and Elliot, and that's why he has to settle for being a high school teacher. But, here's the thing; Walt's research while in graduate school contributed to a Nobel Prize, and then he went on to be a co-founder for an enormously successful multibillion dollar company. There is absolutely no way in hell, with those two things on his CV, that universities wouldn't have been jumping at the chance to hire him. That's an insane demonstration for landing both funding and well-published research. He would have been recruited the second Gray Matter became so successful and likely even before that.

    Now you can definitely say that Walt's ego is what never let him chase any of that, but GIlligan never portrayed him that way on that specific character trait. It was always a portrayal of Walter as taking what job he could get prior to meth.

    My favorite part is where it's law school... for morons... as evidenced...

    You mean like where Tom spins stories about how grand juries and lawyers work, despite not being a lawyer, having no education in law, and zero experience with grand juries? That kinda moron?

    Biggs, you seem very well educated on this topic but one thing you’re obviously forgetting is that in the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important, groups: the police, who investigate crime; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

    My favorite part of that show is how every single case goes to trial.
