  1. Unfortunately, it seems that analytics has ruined baseball. The hitters became focused on launch angles to hit home runs. Prior to this season, it became a game of home runs and strikeouts. Now, the change in the baseball has resulted in many of the recent big HR hitters just flying out but also still striking out a lot. Zzzzzzz!
  2. I had a college Statistics class with a professor who had a PHD. He would challenge us on exams with questions outside the class material. Luckily he marked on a curve, where a 25 got an A.
  3. There might not be as many Guidos out there as in the old days but I think they may just have been replaced by Borises, Serges and representatives of other ethnic groups. It would be naive to think that there won’t be any issues with games now or in the future.
  4. Yeah, I subscribed to the NBA League Pass and during timeouts they kept running this ad, which sounded like Ian Eagle talking, about “If you’re going to gamble, do it responsibly. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, please seek help” I thought ‘WTF?’ I don’t know if this is one you had heard, but this was disingenuous with a capital ‘D’. Does somebody really think they were doing good with this?
  5. And I appropriately got 3rd as Pasta Joe beat me in the Semis.
  6. I look at it this way, since RJ kept putting off retirement, his Sabres broadcast career went into “Ooooooooovertime”!
  7. You must be talking about the pucks into the crowd. I was 10 when the Sabres started so I fell for that too.
  8. Actually their song ‘Shining Star’ seems to be appropriate for Skinner and Tage: ”Shining Star for you to see; what your life can truly be!”
  9. First time with four 20 goal scorers since 2017-2018. Yes, COVID did shorten 2 seasons.
  10. They need Eakin as the designated face off guy.
  11. Especially since some of their opponents have started their backup goalies expecting an easy win.
  12. Adrian hockey? So, is Rocky there? ”Yo, Adrian!”
  13. So, why is it that those players that are good at faceoffs don’t teach teammates how to better at it? Job security?
