| Movie/TV Board|| Anyone Else Feel Like Civil War Better Deliver? - AlaTiger on 5/1/16 at 1:02 pm|
Age of Ultron was a disappointment. I used to look forward to the MCU movies, but now I'm kind of meh about them. I'll see it because I have seen them all, but the franchise is starting to feel stale. Winter Soldier and GoTG were great, but it has been not great since then. I enjoyed Ant Man. I g...

There is no point in denying it. Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee and every possible version of our future as a nation is horrible. If Hillary wins, it is horrible. If Trump wins, it is horrible. And, I think he will probably win. If he fails at everything he tries, it is bad for the coun...View Topic - Replies (30)

Meaningless game. The last of his career. After starting 0-5, he goes 22-45 (49%) the rest of the way, out scores Utah in the 4th, makes his last 5 shots and last 4 FTs to lead a come from behind victory. He shot 44% overall. With those numbers, the 60 pts on 50 shots is really irrelevant. Th...
