Pro wrestling Legend Bruno Sammartino, who sold out Madison Square Garden 187 times in the 60's and 70's, died yesterday at 82.

They've had pro wrestling questions on the show before, so there is a possibility this comes up.
My brother was devastated by this news.

Re: Thursday, April 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Like Dhruv (Yay, Dhruv!), I got to Tomb of the Unknown pretty quickly, but it wasn't feeling right. So a little more thought got me to Arlington National Cemetery pretty quickly after that. The only thing that made sense. BTW, whenever I go to Costco, I pass the cemetery. It's a sobering sight. Gett...

The Message Bible translation uses road rather than way. It's definitely unusual, but not innacurate. I think they'd take it.
It may not be, but I can think of something that is.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Thanks for the good vibes! Ask me again about it on April 16th! How did it go? Well, I ran a pretty good race- finished in 3:32 - but wow- you really couldn’t have asked for worse conditions. Coldest Boston Marathon in 30 years and the rain never stopped- not once, before, during or after the race....

Re: Meanwhile... in the Green Room

I would not want to be forced to watch a movie I didn’t want to see. Do they have movies in there for the regular players? Regular players don't have to be sequestered. It's just the first week of tournaments where you don't want the players to know the scores of previous games to affect the gamepl...

Re: Monday, April 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

What's really killer, IMO, is all the live inning pitching changes. Mid-innings are okay, but that's a 3-5 minute sink if a batter's up. Agreed. It might be a hard sell, but maybe they need a hard limit on the total number of pitching changes allowed during a nine inning game. They have put a cap o...

Re: Monday, April 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

There's also the issue of the game being ruthlessly, horribly boring for most people under the age of 50. Obviously it's not for everyone, but those of us who enjoy the game don't think it's boring. Yes, I'd like to see the length of an average MLB game decrease, but I could say that about just abo...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I still managed a top 10% finish in the Canada-U.S. Border one-day, but shot myself in the foot somewhat by going with Winnipeg for Q2 (thinking Vancouver Island would have been excluded), and then, consequently, going for Saskatchewan on Q5 figuring there wouldn't be a second Manitoba question.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Again, most of NY involves going west, even if you do go north first. This one's simple: if it isn't NYC or Long Island, it's upstate. So, basically 97% of New York is considered upstate. Then why call it "upstate" and not something else entirely? That'd be like calling the non-St. Louis parts of M...

I have a feeling that there's bound to be a clue on the MLB player Shohei Ohtani soon. The following are stats that I got from https://deadspin.com/shohei-ohtani-is-very-clearly-not-from-this-planet-1825094229 are unbelieveable. He is so exciting to watch. He leads the Angels in home runs, batting ...

Andrew's guess of Lindbergh for the guy in the color photo who was the Grand Marshal of the 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade took the cake. I'd say that's an excellent example of "under the lights". If you asked him that at home, I'm sure he'd never have said that. I'm sure he knows that Lindy wasn'...
