543 Pro Bowl
  1. aSK anything: 5.0: Designated Steve-vivor

    Yes. It's called "Suicide is Painless." It was written by ... the producer's 14 year old son. Marilyn Manson, among others, has covered it.
  2. I just want Bol Bol on the team. Then I can buy his jersey. Because I've never had a jersey with a player's first and last name on it.

    The biggest problem with GoT was that they had a near infinite amount of source material to work with the first 6 seasons. They could dive deep. Once they ran past the books and realized they only had two seasons to tie up this elaborate universe that had been created, they had put their foot on the gas. The show was great because of how involved it got. This last season tarnishes it a bit, but I think that happens when you don't know how long the show will go when you start. To me, that's what made True Detective (Season 1) perhaps the best single season of television I've seen. It was an elongated mini-series. They knew exactly where they were going and how much time they had to get there. There were too many questions left unanswered, but perhaps we'll have a couple of spin-offs that bring some of that home. All in all, I've never enjoyed a television series as much as this one.
  4. What's crazy to me is that the Twins' payroll is less than it was last year. So the money is there if they want to make a legit offer to a free agent (Kimbrel/Keuchel) or trade for a pitcher with a high salary. Has Buxton turned a corner? He's about a .230 career hitter and seems to have notoriously slow starts at the plate, but if he truly is going to be .275-.280 hitter, that's going to be a huge boost to the lineup.

    My prediction is Gendry after John abdicates. He then tells Arya “you never have to be a lady, you just need to be my queen.” It would be very Disney, but Gendry does have Targaryen and Baratheon blood. Personally, I’m pulling for Hot Pie.

    Who sits on the Iron Throne when the credits roll tomorrow night?
  7. I just keep expecting the Twins to come back to Earth, but this lineup and rotation are for real. They’re gonna need a bullpen arm sooner rather than later, but they’ll hang with any team.
  8. Why Dennis Green couldn't take us all the way

    The 1998 Falcons should be given credit too. They were no slouch of a team. They were 14-2 in the regular season, featured an 1,800 yard rusher, a Pro Bowl QB and a talented defense. Should we have beaten them? Yes. Should it be considered a major upset? No. They were a very well coached team too. Dan Reeves had them playing well.

    Maybe someone should start a rumor that Buffalo is the front runner for a trade...
  10. Would be nice to see them be able to pick up Kimbrel and/or Keuchel for 1-year contracts.

    I agree with this. I don't think Rudolph's agent is doing him any favors. They will get some sort of compensatory pick for him if he walks. There's also not a veteran TE on the market that would be worth bringing in to try to replace him. Rookie TE's don't generally produce right away, and Cousins needs all the help he can get.
  12. Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers Updates

    TL;DR: Aaron Rodgers is the 2nd coming. The rapture is upon us, and Green Bay will go undefeated and win the Super Bowl while having the #1 ranked Offense and Defense. Got it.

    It most certainly does. The structure of his contract doesn't allow them to do anything with it to create cap space. He has, by far, the largest salary on the team and jams up the most amount of the cap dollars. They can't move it. Do starting QB's cost a lot? Yes. Does that mean you have to give them a contract that allows the team no flexibility? Maybe, but if you're going to do that, they had better be closer to Aaron Rodgers than Aaron Brooks.

    Gotta create some space somewhere. This is what happens when you give a mediocre QB a fully guaranteed contract. Can’t move his salary around. That said, Rudolph isn’t worth the salary, IMO. Don’t think he’d get it elsewhere either. He is a below average blocker. Doesn’t create anything downfield. Doesn’t break tackles. He’s reliable and doesn’t drop passes, and rookie TE’s don’t normally produce a lot, but Rudolph hamstrings anything else the Vikings do right now.
