  1. Costner in a walk Gene Hackman as Coach Norman Dale in Hoosiers is also a no brainer to me.
  2. Season 6 had some lows, but it also has 3 of the top 10 epsiodes in the series, with The Winds of Winter being arguably the best episode of the series.
  3. Off the top of my head, I think I'd rank them: Season 3 Season 1 Season 6 Season 4 Season 7 Season 2 Season 5
  4. I think Tyrion is just worried that he will be usurped as the Queen's top advisor. Anyone but him being the most prominent voice in her ear is bad news in Tyrion's view.
  5. Didn't know McDonaugh had a movie coming out, i'll need to check that out for sure. I grew up on Star Wars (Return of the Jedi was the first movie I ever saw in theaters) so a new Star Wars will always be special for me. Thor: Ragnarok looks like it will be a lot of fun Hugh Jackman shines in musicals, and The Greatest Showman looks good all around Kingsman: The Golden Circle looks like a solid continuation of the first, which was a blast Hoping Justice League isn't a disaster, but I have my doubts
  6. Hmmm, lets see: Sam Hubbard: Possible 2018 first round pick Tyquan Lewis: Probably not a 1st rd pick, but I could see him in the rd 3-4 range Nick Bosa: Likely top 10 pick in 2019 Robert Landers: He's only about 285, he has an uphill battle to be a high pick Dre'Mont Jones: I could see him being a 1st rd pick eventually. Very fast and already close to 300 lbs Chase Young: Has yet to play a collegiate snap, but I could see him as a potential #1 overall pick in 2020. Kid is a freak Jonathan Cooper: Former 5 star DE, has the pedigree, but redshirted last year, so who knows at t
  7. I typically watch at least the first one. At that point if I know it's a movie i'll see, i'll try to avoid the future trailers after that. Like John Wick 2 and Kingsman 2 I was pretty sure I'd be seeing regardless, but I still watched the first trailer and have generally avoided everything since then.
  8. What I don't get is why does Bran bring up and everyone talk about Jon being the "rightful heir to the iron throne"? Jon doesn't want it, he's already pledged his loyalty to Danaerys, and she's got the Dragons. I really don't see him finding out that he is Aegon Targaryan and the first thing popping into his head is him turning to Danaerys and saying "Bend the knee". First and foremost though, Jon has no interest in being King of the Seven Kingdoms unless he absolutely had to do it because no one else qualified would, but he clearly believes Danaerys can be that person to rule.
  9. 21.5 point spread and Kevin Wilson looking for revenge? I wouldn't be placing any bets on IU to cover.
  10. Cmon now, we know this is how you really pictured Rhaegar
  11. It'd be like only one country in the world having nukes. They are the power and that's it. I think no dragons survive, Dany dies, Jon Snow rules as King Aegon Targaryan VI and is miserable being a great king.
  12. Initial production on Batman vs Superman was nearly 8 months http://collider.com/batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice-filming-wraps/
  13. Bear Island gets the Land of Always Winter after the Night King is defeated. The mineral deposit rights will be worth trillions!
  14. I kind of wished they would have killed off Jaime. That would have been a major "OH ****!!!!" kind of moment that would have really elevated the episode. Does he really have that big of a role to play at this point? He's essentially a one handed mercenary at this point.
  15. Yes, but if this happens right after the tournament at Harrenhall, maybe a letter from Lyanna to her father prevents Brandon Stark from banging on the gates of Kings Landing telling Rhaegar to come out and die. Roberts Rebellion may have come about regardless, but this probably would have helped.
  16. I also just took it as Tyrion not liking potentially being supplanted as the Queen's top advisor. He'd still be the Hand, but if she's listening to Jon over him, that's bad news in his mind.
  17. Littlefinger has essentially been a neutered character since the knights of the vale came to the rescue. For how good the character was following the book plot, the show writers just completely butchered him once they didn't have it laid out for them. Rhaegar going George Forman on us with multiple kids with the same name? When did Sam go back and read what he shushed Gilly about in the previous episode? More poor writing.
  18. Same thing I was thinking. Would it really have been hard for Lyanna to send a couple Ravens to Ned and Bob Baratheon? "Yo bro, not kidnapped, got hitched to R, no worries, Love - L"
  19. I'm still sticking with the theory that "Aegon" is the son of Varys' sister, and that they are all Blackfyre's from the one mentioned in the books that pretty much slept his way through all the whores in the cities of Essos. There's more to it than that, but I haven't read the books in years now so it's not as clear to me. The gist of it is Varys is a Blackfyre and "Aegon" is his nephew. It's why he is always shaved bald, he's got the Targ/Blackfyre hair.
  20. I've barely seen any of the preseason so far, but i'll hopefully get the watch some this Sunday. I hope the Bengals are willing to cut Michael Johnson if he has been as bad as advertised so far this year.
  21. Sounds like Brandon Bowen has emerged as the front runner for the starting spot at RG. The Bucks line this year is HUGE LT: Jamarco Jones, 6'5" 310 lbs, SR LG: Michael Jordan, 6'7" 310 lbs, SO C: Billy Price, 6'4" 312 lbs, SR RG: Brandon Bowen, 6'7" 312 lbs, RS-SO RT: Isaiah Prince, 6'7" 310 lbs, JR No one below 310 lbs and even the top reserves are large in Malcolm Pridgeon (6'7" 315 JR), Matt Burrell (6'3" 300 lbs RS-SO), and Thayer Munford is supposedly emerging as the top candidate to back up both tackle spots (6'6" 325 lbs) with highly touted freshmen Josh Myers (6'5" 3
  22. My guess for the Arizona Fall League, the Reds will send: Nick Senzel Shed Long Alfredo Rodriguez Jose Lopez Wyatt Strahan Zach Weiss Alejandro Chacin
