  1. I can see it now, that blond guy comes out on the ice, tears open a white and blue bubble bag with gloves inside, and then cuts open a Prime-labelled cardboard box and pulls the Stanley Cup out. Bettman says on the mic, "This is the best Prime Day ever for the Tokyo Katanas!"
  2. Here's hoping that the juju has flipped and the Pats always play the Bills tough but end up short in the end, the opposite of the last 20 years.
  3. I didn't see any of it, but fumble in the red zone down 3 with 30 seconds left *does* seem like a familiar story.
  4. FWIW, Ray does "tell it like it is" at times, but I bet that's not his full unfettered opinion. Just as much as he figures he can get away with.
  5. I agree. That reads like a "You need to sign-off on this PR release RIGHT NOW" statement, not a "I've been searching my heart for years" statement.
  6. Only think about Girgs I haven't seen mentioned is that the contract makes him less desirable in Expansion, but other threads seem like the Sabres won't have an issue protecting him anyway.
  7. NASA's OSIRIS-REx team uses some of the servers my coworkers and I run for doing flight calculations. It's like I have a teeny-tiny bit of space exploration in my resume, lol.
  8. I bet OSP wishes he was still an owner.
  9. Rogers has a body of work that says that was an aberration. Josh Allen had 4 good games, and some last year. No one knows who the real JA is yet.
  10. MicroUSB is objectively worse, the early ones the jack in the device would wear our quickly, so they stiffened those up and now the cables get out of whack unless you're *very* careful. MiniUSB had much more strength but was too thick for device manufacturer's weird thinness fetish. HDMI has never really bothered me. If we're going to delve into less common stuff, the DMS-59 connection on many video cards in the last decade is terrible. You may recognize the pigtail that goes from the video card to 2 VGA or 2 DVI connectors. It's more or less a rectangle, with barely any keying to make s
  11. Maybe he's going for a DRIIIIIVVVVEEEEE.
  12. I'm stuck with two questions: What is all the red on the ice? Eddie LeBec? I'm amazed at the two people on the ice being nonchalant about the whole thing. "Hey, the zamboni is on fire, I'ma just gonna mosey over to this end of the rink after a bit."
  13. I have a feeling this one will make the news further than WNY.
  14. That is, I had been wondering where Brian Blessing ended up. Thanks!
  15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_journalism It's likely been around at least as long as the printing press (see "Pamphlets"). Before that, probably just took a lot more work to create biased stone tablets and illuminated manuscripts.
