Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Just got an email for a new reply to a thread I commented on in 2004. Went to the thread and there's no new replies. Yay spammers who are then nuked by the mods.

Re: Baseball 2018

This might be the worst team I've ever drafted. After the 3rd or 4th round, every time I set on a guy to take with my next pick, he went a pick or two ahead of me and then I had no backup plan and just grabbed someone. Awful awful draft. I'm gonna need to work the waiver wire hard

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I was at a conference for work last week which was held at a casino. So by day I went to the conference and by night I was in the casino. And I learned an amazing trick. If you're up by an amount that pleases you........stand up and walk away. Ended up almost $250 on the good for the 2 days

Re: End of an Era - Toys R Us

People are going to sorely miss brick and mortar when they are gone. No customer service, no ability to get a real look and feel for quality, no instant return and swap for a fault product.

I'd be willing to bet that Mike Krzyzewski will end up personally clean, while some of his assistants go down. I'd be willing to wager that he does almost nothing outside of on-court coaching these days.

Re: NFL 2017

To ensure that they tank the rest of the season for a high draft pick, and as a sign of the toxic situations that develop in losing franchises, the Giants have benched Eli Manning in favor of Geno Smith, bringing Eli's 13-year record of 210 consecutive games started (second-longest in NFL history f...

Re: NFL 2017

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 ...

My eBay boycott is alive and well in its 6th year. The way that site treats sellers is ludicrous. And if a site treats its sellers like that, they don't need my buyer money either.
