YEAH JEETS! Danne D, have you ever been a bigger supporter of Duke than you are today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:02pm dale:

is it "don't procrastinate, something something ate, girls a-gettin' laid?'

Hey there, fellow babies.

I can smell Wrigley Field from Portland. That or someone peed on the building again.
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:03pm Danne D:

Apparently the process of ruining Wrigley's charm will take 4 years.

The rare occasion on which I was able to provide sportsy content! Hi everybody.
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:04pm Danne D:

@Studio B Ben - I've never been a supporter of Duke - frankly it's part of why I picked 'em since I figured that kind of karma was needed.

I win either way - if Wisconsin wins I think I finish 3rd in a money pool I'm in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:05pm Caryn:

Well, that bar run will provide them with the chance to get way cheaper beer than is available on the stadium.

I peed in the Fenway Park bleachers
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:06pm Danne D:

Cubs fans are apparently not familiar with the solution Jets fans use: peeing in the sink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:06pm dale:

they give birth in there sometimes
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:07pm Matt from Springfield:

This shows room for improvement--I say start a "shooting sports" league for men's peeing -- points awarded for how close you are to the target. It will encourage more direct aiming overall! Maybe a "women's league" could be established if successful...

Hi Bronwyn, Jim, Sportsyfolk! :)
  Mon. 4/6/15 6:08pm SeanG:

you're right Jim it was way up top---that last row
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/6/15 6:08pm Kat in Chicago:

Two problems with ladies' rooms: 1) women who "hover" rather than sitting and get pee all over the seat for the rest of us to sit in, and 2) women who attempt to flush items that ought to not be flushed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:08pm Caryn:

It is true that lots of US beers are so close to piss anyway that it can be difficult to tell the difference.

@probablyjohn just needs Wisconsin to win

@Caryn: unless you drink craft beer that many of us hop heads are now into. IPA, every day. Does Iceland have a *national* brand or two?

@Matt: the old-timey solution that started in the UK is the picture of a fly or bee in the urinal. Encourages target shooting.

Hi sportsies
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:17pm Caryn:

@Carm: not being from Iceland, I'm not that familiar, but since beer was banned in Iceland until 1989 and the Icelandic people like to get incredibly drunk, I think they gravitate more towards their brennivín, even though they have beers. Us Finns on the other hand are big beer-drinkers. For further reading: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:17pm Danne D:

I think you need to call in with that name, SBB :)
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Heh, always liked that one, tonyb :)

Hi Marcel!
Avatar Mon. 4/6/15 6:17pm Marcel M:

@Caryn: Beer was banned till 89' there?! WOAH!
Avatar Mon. 4/6/15 6:18pm Marcel M:

But you can call him Mel, which is cool.

Hey Matt!!!

In Brooklyn, after an intense game of shuffleboard, bocce or kickball I always make sure to pee in mason jars and store the urine jars in artisanal, handcrafted barnwood cabinets.

I will, right now! I just didn't want to step on your toes!

You guys need to get an interview with him
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:23pm Caryn:

Even though the shorts are tiny in Australian rules football, they were even tinier in the 70s and 80s. It's unbelievable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:24pm Carmichael:

@Caryn: sheez, sorry, faux pas ... Why was I thinking Iceland?!
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:24pm Danne D:

a bunch of Sidebottoms from the past:

Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:25pm Matt from Springfield:

"Sidebottom" was also an alter-ego of Boober Fraggle, Steel Sidebottom seems like a limited-edition figurine of that Fraggle Rock character.
  Mon. 4/6/15 6:25pm thatsyourtrouble:

What about Joey Terdoslavich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:25pm Caryn:

@Carm: well, I went to Iceland 2 years ago and mentioned it on the boards, so maybe you remember that?
Avatar Mon. 4/6/15 6:27pm Marcel M:

Why was beer banned in Iceland, Caryn?
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:27pm Danne D:

If both the Chargers and Raiders go to L.A. one of them (probably the Chargers) would be swapped into the NFC
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Stay Sportsy, San Diego!!! They already took your Clippers, don't let 'em take the Chargers too!! I kinda like the Chargers, and their non-LA location prob has something to do with that.
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:28pm Danne D:

Fun Fact - Chargers QB Philip Rivers refusing to sign an extension b/c he would not want to relocate to L.A. if the Chargers move there. Because L.A. is so far away from San Diego I guess...
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Caryn is Finland, commenter Sigurdur/Rectitude is the one from Iceland. Possible source of confusion.
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:29pm Danne D:

The Chargers originally were in L.A. though, M_f_S

thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:31pm Studio B Ben:

@Danne D: Yeah, he's talked about how tied he and his family are to San Diego and wanting to stay there for family reasons. Which sounds logical coming from him, but could also be a very good bargaining chip: "Stay in SD and I'll sign"

The Lady Gamecocks used to be called the Chicks a long time ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/6/15 6:33pm Kat in Chicago:

I might try to visit NYC around marathon time next year. I did go see People Like Us at Monty Hall last year, that was great!

Paper-maché chicken bar fights!! Woohoo!

@Danne: Oh wow, didn't know that! Fortunately only their 1st season.

@Caryn: I'm going to look for some Olvi in my favorite maga-beer store. And the Sahti sounds intriguing.

Bronwyn is probably thinking of Pat Summit who coached Tennessee for a long time to like 3000 victories.
Avatar Mon. 4/6/15 6:36pm Marcel M:

He said nappy headed hoes... moron.
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:37pm Danne D:

Yeah but Rivers doesn't have the leverage to keep the team from moving - it's just sorta bizarre because L.A. is closer to San Diego than any current NFL city.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:38pm Studio B Ben:

No, it's true, but I think the owners really like Rivers at QB, so it could be an incentive for them to make a SD stadium deal happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:38pm Caryn:

@Carm: yeah, for a truly Finnish experience, Olvi or Kukko are your best bets. Some of the microbrews are also apparently great, but I suspect those will be really hard to find abroad.

I think the non-suspension was because he self-reported.

Snort the Mets!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/6/15 6:45pm Carmichael:

The NFL is determined to put a team in LA, and this is the latest crazy scheme. The Raiders and their new dunce owner Tommy Boy used it to negotiate a new deal with Alameda County and City of Oakland.
Avatar Mon. 4/6/15 6:47pm Marcel M:

Yeah was just about to say the Mets won. Give 'em some cred!
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:48pm Danne D:

Mets are kings of opening day - best winning percentage on opening day of any team in MLB
Avatar    Mon. 4/6/15 6:48pm Danne D:

"MLB officials believed Hamilton violated his treatment program with the recent relapse, while the players' association disagreed. After representatives from Major League Baseball and the union on the Treatment Board deadlocked on the issue, an arbitrator was called upon to break the tie.

The arbitrator said Hamilton did not violate terms of the agreement, although the reasoning behind the decision was not made public."

Update: Chick Hearn dead since 8/5/2002. It was Jazz broadcaster Hot Rod Hunley who died a couple weeks ago. I regret the error.
