My dad was born on the day of the attack of Pearl Harbor. He's seen one Lions playoff victory

I miss Mustache. I see him playing Switch games online but have no way to reach out to him on there.

Same. Anyone have any way of saying hi for all of us?

Darn it, Nintendo, if you only put in a Switch message system! :P

Nate Peterman became a verb last weekend.

The Vikings are 8-2 despite my post-Week 1 fears after Bradford hurt his knee. Defense has really stepped up, the o-line has been elite, Andrew Thielen is having a breakout season and Case Keenum has not only been kept clean he has been extremely effective. So yeah outside of them just blowing it the next 6 weeks I am pretty satisfied with how things are going.

Also I love what my fellow North Dakotan, Carson Wentz, is doing for the Eagles. Guy is fantastic and doing better now than I ever thought. I figured coming from the FCS he'd have a bit of longer learning curve but he seems to have gotten himself up to speed very fast.

What a wild game in the snow.

Carson Wentz out for the year with a torn ACL. Does that ruin Philly's shot of even making it to the Super Bowl?!
12/11/17, 19:41   

I don't know. Foles is a solid backup if he can get back to 2013 form. Even then, the NFC is actually looking really good this year. I could see Carolina, New Orleans, Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, or Minnesota giving them fits without Wentz.
12/12/17, 07:07   
We shall see. I see the only viable threats from the NFC being NO and Atlanta, only due to experience alone. Seattle seems shaky on the road, especially after a loss in Jacksonville. Carolina will fold. All it takes is Cam to have an off day. LA is a nice story, but will ultimately lack the grit to get it done in the playoffs.

The Bills are currently in a playoff spot, due to math! Miami's win last night did not help, however. Bills need to sweep Miami, because they aren't going to beat NE in NE. They will also need some more help. Eesh. At least this is the latest I've been invested in the Bills in a long time!

Truth. Also, somewhat unrelated, I miss Jason Avant.

12/12/17, 16:50   
What did I just listen to?
12/12/17, 17:21   

A song about Jason Avant. He's very good at catching balls.
12/12/17, 18:35   
I absolutely hate the NY Yankees, but boy, do they have a stacked outfield coming up next season.

It will be interesting to see how Stanton and Judge do together, with the proposed idea that they (s)platoon in RF/DH, or Stanton plays in left and Judge plays in right (presumably in NL parks). Throw in the fact that Yankee Stadium is very hitter friendly, I wouldn't be surprised if both reach/eclipse the 60 HR mark.
12/13/17, 13:46   
It'll be fun when the Tigers trade Michael Fulmer to the Yankees. He could be the fourth ex-Tigers pitcher to be dominant for another team in the last five years
12/13/17, 18:15   
I really do think Jeter is sabotaging the Marlins for the sake of the Yankees. Just sayin'. Conspiracies abound!
12/13/17, 19:48   

That seems unlikely. He only owns, what, 25% of the Marlins? And he could potentially be removed/fired from the operations part by the majority owners. Unless his 25% is the majority and the rest is made up of a bunch of different people. I could look it up, but I'm lazy.

Still, I don't see a conspiracy. Things will be lean for Miami for at least 3 years. But hey, that formula worked for the Astros. Zeroes to heroes in about 3 years, right?
12/14/17, 15:25   
The Evil Empire is back, baby!!!
12/15/17, 01:17   

Yes, and 100% cheers for the Astros for pulling it off. A huge number of teams have tried the same formula and come away with zero championships. Meanwhile the New York Moneybags have like, what, 74 rings now?

Every baseball-playing day I wish there was a friggin salary cap to my favorite sport.
12/15/17, 06:00   
Yeah, I'm a big fan of salary caps. I think it works well in hockey and the NFL. But it really does make it hard to have a "franchise" player. It's so very rare in any sport lately. I can only think of a handful of NFL players who are likely to retire with the team that drafted them. Brady, Fitzgerald, Roethlisberger, Eli Manning.... I struggle to name a fifth. Crazy!
12/15/17, 18:03   

True, but at the same time modern baseball isn't much different EXCEPT for the teams with the cash, yeah? I mean, Andrew McCutchen is the face of my Pirates only because he literally took a big salary hit and said "This is how I want people to act, so I have to act that way myself" (which was super classy). Even still, he knows he's getting older so this is probably his last year with us because he needs to make what he can while his legs are still solid, and we'll never pay him what he's worth ("worth" in the insane world of professional sports).

I'd also say that in some ways it makes franchise players extra special. (I also love when that happens, so I'm a big supporter of people who stay with one team their whole career. It inspires me.) Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite NFL player, bar none.

It's amazing they could still miss the playoffs if they finish 10-6. They still need help. Realistically, they should finish 9-7.
