Tim Olyphant always brings it.

In Girl Next Door? Forget it. That guy was outstanding.

Am I the only one who finds this show almost insufferably cheesy?

I've never seen it, but I don't feel like that should stop me from weighing in on this. 

It's a little cheesy, but it's also a little tongue-in-cheek. 

It reminds me of NCIS. Which I haven't seen.

My wife put some summer pictures up on facebook today

Not relevant to the thread at all, but your wife takes awesome photos.

Just wanted to offer some sincerity to the collective.


Thanks Eli. She appreciates the kind words.

Your hair reminds me of Luke Wilson in "Bottle Rocket".  Is that the look you were going for?

I was going for little to no effort. Now, it's just much longer than that.

""We just needed to get a couple of pieces, and we really think Byrd and Nady are going to help us in a lot of areas, especially offensively. And I'm optimistic some of the people that didn't hit last year will. Rudy is going to help us. I think we're quite a bit better.""

It seems to me that people think because Milt isn't around to upset people's delicate sensibilities that the Cubs are suddenly going to be great. It saddens me. But if 20 guys are going to dinner every night, well, that's just as good as a 100 wins and a World Series.

No offense, but does anyone that's not close to the organization actually think that? I mean, I think they'll be ok, 83-87 win range, but I don't think they'll be horrible. I've been trying to convince myself that the Cardinals are more in the 85-90 win range, and with a little luck, the Cubs could squeak their way in the playoffs, and then whatever, but that's the TJ Brown optimist side of myself.

I'm an optimist, but not even I am that optimistic.

The Cubs are probably more of a 78-83 win team right now; however, a few things could improve my outlook:

a) Ted Lilly returns to the mound and to form in May.
b) Soriano is healthy and goes on at least three of his patented two-three week tears.
c) Fukudome doesn't suck.
d) The middle bullpen isn't vital as Dempster, Z, Lilly and Wells average more than six innings per start and are very effective.
e) Geo hits like it's 2008.

If any of these two things happen, the Cubs will compete for the division. I'd say you could have thrown an option "f" in there: "Bradley progresses to the mean," but he's gone, so let's go with a new option "f:" "Larry Rothschild makes Carlos Silva into a legitimate No. 2 starter." That's as likely as me getting killed by a stampede of elephants this afternoon, however.

I do think Slak's right that a lot of people do think that since Bradley's gone and that a "great guy" and "man's man" like Kevin Millar will be in the clubhouse "stirring the drink,"  woo-hoo, we've got a champion. I know far too many Cub fans that think that.

Yes, a lot of Cub fans will say that exact same thing - chiefly people that don't post here. And not even because of Millar but purely because of the subtraction of Bradley. It's unfortunate but I'll gladly listen to the cries of "It was all Milton's fault!" if the Cubs manage to rule the NL this year.

I seriously don't know that I've talked to a single Cubs fan outside of you dolts who agreed with me that Bradley for Silva was anything but an awesome move.

I'm talking friends and family here, too. It's downright depressing.

Yep - I've seen it too. My wife put some summer pictures up on facebook today and we happened to be in right field. Our guy Milt was standing there looking insane and trying to destroy team chemistry with his mind bullets. You can see it in the photo, you really can.

Well now you've offended me. Good day, sir.

Since I bitched to comcast, I now get Starz for free. This is a new series, only 3 episodes so far. Lots of good fight scenes, cool matrix like camera shots and lots of hot nude women.

Anyone else watching this show?

No but I'm going to start.

So Tyrus' trade value is approximately zero, right?

Quote
Team sources said Thomas directed a profanity-laced tirade at coach Vinny Del Negro in his office with players and coaches within earshot after Friday night's loss in Atlanta, the third straight game Thomas had played less than 16 minutes.

I'm going to blame Vinny because it's more fun. I think someone would still take Tyrus because he's good and someone could actually play him big boy minutes. But as long as Vinny is here he'll never get a shot to be anything more than what he is now.

Nice work Vin.

SNL did a whole skit about no one knowing anything about this show.

"Is it kinda like NCIS?"

"In what way?"

"I don't know."

I never miss NCIS.  Usually.  There are exceptions, though. 

I don't miss it either but that's because I've never watched it.

If IAN is dead in the impending celebration at least he will die a happy man.

Sean Payton - that's a coach.

Danica Patrick - fuck you.

That's about all I got.

Way to rush the court you fucking nerds. Illinois has cemented itself as irrelevant. We used to be cool, too. I swear it. I was there once.

Fuck.
