    Qatar World Cup

    Same. Have played, coached, watched for 30+ years and I'll be glued to every game. I think a person can enjoy the matches, support their team, etc and still think FIFA is a corrupt institution. It does seem like this WC is drawing more public ire than any I've seen before. I recall reading...

    Agree, though I'd probably qualify it by saying "could be" better. (though I'll admit I haven't seen any fall practices, just going off reports, etc) IMO, last year's team had justifiably lofty expectations given the star power and experience - unanimous Omaha pick, Fitt picked them to win the...

    Seriously? .286 and .457 slugging with 4 doubles, a triple, and 8 RBI (a good number of those in clutch pinch hit positions) in 35 plate appearances and played a good 3B in very limited reps as a true freshman. He looked the part of a big time player. I just hope they can hang onto him given...

    FBI raiding Mar A Lago

    I know. I figured they'd let us all see the top secret information. Nope. It's not. And your laughing emoji only proves that if the SC justices or congresspeople being threatened were of a different ideological bent, you'd have zero problem with it. In all seriousness, since you apparently...

    FBI raiding Mar A Lago

    That's the thing that's probably going to be missed with him leaking this vs. DOJ releasing it. DOJ would have redacted those names. Upshot though, as we learned earlier in this thread, is they are Federal LEOs, so their well being doesn't count.* *Unless, of course, we need them to go handle...

    Fly Fishing near Stillwater

    Fellow fly fisherman here. Unfortunately, Oklahoma pretty much sucks for trout on the fly. Like others have said, they put stocker rainbows in some of the lakes during the winter months. Blue River near Sulphur (about 1.5 hrs S. of OKC) gets stocked in the winter. Lower Mountain Fork around...

    5 tool potential, from what I've seen/heard.

    NeverMadeItToCampus All-Stars

    A few more in baseball off the top of my head... Gary Sheffield - was committed to OSU in 1986. (FWIW, the weird hand pump thing he did in the box was to slow his swing down with a wooden bat. Can't even imagine what he'd have done with the old school metal bats). JT Realmuto - most folks...

    Jan. 6 sentencing...

    I don't pretend to have the historical knowledge to know what every single congressional hearing for the last 50 years has looked like (if you do, good on you), so I'm just relying on your summary of the point of what he was saying: Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are Republicans, and both have...

    Jan. 6 sentencing...

    These hearings have had exactly that. In fact, the questions at the last two hearings (minus a few asked by Bennie Thompson, the chair) have ALL been asked by Republicans. And, perhaps more importantly, answered by Trump supporting Republicans. Folks keep talking about "the other side" of the...

    Jan. 6 sentencing...

    Appreciate your response, and especially the time you took to consider another viewpoint. Obviously, there are some things we don't agree 100% on, but I am in complete agreement with several of your points. Especially that we have to find a better way to question policies, etc. without...

    Jan. 6 sentencing...

    Exactly. I think the worst justice a narcissist - any narcissist - could taste is to have to stew forever in their own resentment of being rejected. Edit: I've wondered if maybe we could just exile him to his own Island of Elba like Napolean (maybe we could buy Greenland after all) and let...

    Neither here nor there, but baseball numbers in the 60s are an abomination. Is he going to go play a few downs on the O Line after that at bat? :cool:
