    Today would have been the 100th birthday of Jackie Robinson. He was a damn fine baseball player, but I imagine very few people would say he was the best athlete ever. But when you consider how his career advanced race relations, yeah, count me in for most important athlete ever.

    Do the math. UNC wins almost exactly 50% of the time. It's a perfect rivalry.

    I'm a UNC alum living in NC, so I respectfully beg to differ. It's pronounced dook by the way. Your average dook fan here is like the worst Patriots fan cranked up on meth. I couldn't possibly hate any team more than dook, personally (Leafs, Bruins, Flyers, Alabama, Patriots, Yankees, etc.), but I'd like to think I'm somewhat objective about it. Jay Bilas is the most insightful and entertaining NCAA BB analyst out there and has been for a long time. Grant Hill is the classiest basketball player/person ever. I won't bore you with the dook players I can't stand, but the real reason for my hatred is Coach K. Biggest ***** on the planet. He makes Dick Cheney look like a good candidate for sainthood.
  5. This is an abomination because of all the gray and white crap and the blue shoulders, and different shades of yellow. I'm probably in the minority here, but a yellow jersey is exactly what I'd like to see for the 3rd jersey. Pretty much just like the scheme that Nashville uses. Nothing crazy. I'd also like to just replace the navy blues with the royals.

    I'm convinced they dug up a bunch of Native American burial grounds to build Philly. Lot a bad mojo there.

    Man, I love the Replacements (Alex Chilton video 2 replies above). They were some serious drinkers. Frontman Paul Westerberg would usually slur when introducing the band at the beginning of a show and it sounded like, "Hi, we're the Placemats." So they were nicknamed the Mats for short ever since. They showed up wasted for an SNL appearance and were never invited back. They actually released an album of live covers they "performed" while *****-faced. Most of them were incomplete, and they didn't know all the lyrics. Songs like Iron Man and Saturday Night Special. God awful torturous racket if you're not a fan, but utterly hilarious if you are. They called it "The ***** Hits the Fans". In spite of their issues, they did not lack for a sense of humor. At one point they were driving to a gig and one of the guys' nephew had just committed suicide, so he decided to drive alone behind the other guys, who were drinking heavily all the way. When they all arrived, the sober one recounted that the three guys drinking literally fell out of the car laughing so hysterically that it took them like 5 minutes to finally be able to explain why they were laughing so hard. They had decided what to name their soon to be released album. They decided on "Let It Be"! This was only 14 years after the Beatles released their "Let It Be", so they knew this would be considered blasphemous by many. One time in a recording studio they managed to get vomit on the 12-foot ceiling of one of the rooms. The owner of the studio couldn't figure out how they managed to do that and actually lost sleep over it. He finally concluded that one (or more) of them had barfed in his cupped hands and flung it up on the ceiling. Regardless of all this debauchery, the Replacements were an amazing band, a true force in the 80's who influenced many future bands. Paul Westerberg is a tremendous songwriter. Check them out!

    There is already a movie called Dick. And it is about...you guessed it! Richard Nixon!

    There is a movie about Dick Cheney coming out on Christmas. Here is the actor playing him. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6266538/mediaviewer/rm2787015680 I thought it was 71-year old Richard Dreyfuss, certainly not 44-year old Christian Bale. Here's another beauty of the lengths he's willing to go to capture a character (Cheney again). https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6266538/mediaviewer/rm1327397888 Here is what he did to himself in 2004 for The Machinist. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361862/mediaviewer/rm1747859712 Say what you will about him, he has been fantastic in some fantastic movies: The Machinist, Empire of the Sun (as a 13-year old), American Psycho, his Batman movies, The Big Short, etc.

    If they're talking about the one on the right, yuck! They're gonna be the equivalent of the Penn State jerseys of the NHL, only worse.

    Colt McCoy is out for the season for the Redskins. Mark Sanchez is the only healthy Washington QB. They just claimed Reuben Foster, knowing full well there would be criticism. If they're willing to do that, and under their current QB circumstances, doesn't it seem like taking a chance on Colin Kaepernick would be the obvious thing to do?
