Re: MCU

The Netflix shows are swimmingly good. There are some missteps *cough*Iron Fist*cough* but the majority are good. The other offerings are doing well....well....except for the Inhumans crap. I am excited about Cloak and Dagger. The Runaways is fun as hell! MCU's TV/Streaming is by far better than DC...

Re: MCU

The real question is whether they would roll Xmen into MCU. I cannot see them doing it... there are just too many characters. There really aren't that many characters to worry about. Fox have only focused on a few since the beginning, while the vast supporting cast is mostly providing "Hey! I ...

Re: NFL 2017

Besides the Saints... the Vikings, Jaguars, Eagles and Ravens are also heavily favored. The Browns' last home game of the season is this weekend, but I believe that they're more likely to win next week in Chicago than at home against the Ravens this week. Watch out for those divisional matchups...t...

Foe some reason, my brain simply cannot remember what has just come out of the oven. Had the skillet out for about two minutes before grabbing it, and now I'll be nursing pain in my fingers for the rest of the night. :(

Re: Gaming keyboard and mouse

I am using a K70 RGB (paid for it with points!), and it has been my favorite keyboard so far. I did like Blue switches, but I still bottomed them out, so I saw no reason to be picky on switches. The reds are nice for quick presses, and I don't have trouble typing on them. As for everything else, thi...

Re: Help me understand, why is there a sport section?

This thread reminded me...the Packers are apparently big tabletop fans, including Settlers of Catan.

On top of that, Andrew Luck (the caveman QB of the Indianapolis Colts) hosts his own book club, complete with "rookie" and "veteran" books each month.

Football: as much a strategy sport as a physical one. Games play like a turn based RPG. Each team selects a play (move), then they execute the play.

I've felt that Chuck Pagano is #1 candidate for firing among HCs...until his point. Doing a full benching of Eli Manning is madness. They could at least nominally keep him the starter and more to a "QB council" to "develop talent" in the last few weeks of the season. That would b...

Or you CAN go the cold brew route (which you should consider if you want lower acidity). But if you're looking for something simpler... Basic Drip: Dunkin Do...

The Packers front office and Mike McCarthy should really be ashamed of the "work" they've done to surround a Hall of Fame QB with talent. As in, they haven't surrounded a Hall of Fame quarterback with any talent at all. Instead, they've muddled along, relying on Rodgers to cover up their ...
