Orioles actually win something! - Baloo
First division title since 1997, which was the first one since 1983. I honestly can't believe it. This is just a wonderful, beautiful team. Everything went wrong, and three of the team's best players are currently out, yet they are the team to break the drought. I am getting really f'n drunk. [i...

Preacher (comic -- SPOILERS) - Baloo
Preacher has been in development hell for over a decade, but they are finally adapting the popular comic into a TV show. I've never actually read it, so I went down to my local comic shop, picked up a trade paperback, and read the first 12 issues. It's one of the the most praised comics of my life, ...

The Germs are the band people think the Sex Pistols are - Baloo
Listening to (GI) and pondering the ridiculously stupid suicide of Darby Crash (they literally had one last show so he could raise money to buy enough heroin to kill himself -- not a joke). Stiil, the album is amazing and a billion times better and more "dangerous" than anything the Pistols put out,...

Kris Letang has a mystery illness - Baloo
http://triblive.com/sports/penguins/5524500-74/letang-penguins-games#axzz2sYLH2jYx He's expected to miss the rest of the season, and it's always a bad sign when the headline has to re-assure you his mystery disease is not life threatening. Good God. It's a real shame. He's a terrific player. H...

Shaky Knees Fest in Atlanta - Baloo
Anyone ever been? Know anything about it? The lineup is pretty much like they got together and asked themselves what would Baloo and his wife like to see? (Well, if they could add the 'Mats). http://shakykneesfestival.com/...

Four goal night for Ovechkin - Baloo
Ummm... that was insane. Ovie scored his last goal with 30 seconds left in the 3rd with the goalie pulled to tie the game. Just an amazing game. He's playing at a level right now that is almost unmatched. This is like Pavel Bure in his prime kind of goal scoring. ...

Defending Ron Howard - Baloo
With the release of Rush and the high praise it has received, there’s been a recent uptick in Ron Howard think pieces. Here are two recent examples: http://thedissolve.com/features/the-conversation/172-the-ron-howard-enigma/ http://www.grantland.com/blog/hollywood-prospectus/post/_/id/88348/reco...

Long thoughts on the ending of Breaking Bad - Baloo
This is going to be TL;DR but screw you, I’m verbose. It’s taken me a few days to digest the finale of Breaking Bad, and I’ve perused all of the major episode reviews out there. The general consensus seems to be that this was a satisfying though not spectacular finale. I can agree with that asse...

The Unofficial Season Long Hockey Thread - Baloo
Puckheads, unite! Puck drops tomorrow. Can Chicago repeat? Will the Penguins be healthy enough to dress 23 guys? Will the Flyers goalie suck? (Yes. Yes he will.) Will the Bruins miss Seguin and Horton? How much will the Red Wings enjoy the East? Can LA bounce back? How badly will Calgary suck? Wi...

Grantland Fixes the NHL - Baloo
Down Goes Brown was one of the best hockey blogs out there, and he's been writing for Grantland about hockey for a few months now. Today, he had proposals to "fix" the NHL http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/9538380/how-fix-nhl/ [quote]NHL offense spiked after the 2005 lockout thanks to new ru...

Movie posters - Baloo
Mrs. Baloo and I just bought a new house, and we're in the process of decorating. Now, being the guy, I have almost no authority whatsoever, but we are going to decorate the den with movie posters. So... I need suggestions. What are the best movie posters taking into account both aesthetics and w...

A's win 19 inning game - Baloo
Man, I'm glad I didn't watch that. Game ended at 3 AM, and the Angels blew a five run lead in the 8th inning, which is hard to do. Josh Hamilton is hitting .202/.246/.298 after going 0 for 8 last night. That's unfathomably bad. ...

Wedding DJ - Baloo
A couple of good friends of mine are getting married next weekend and they have asked me to be their wedding DJ. I have the equipment and stuff, but I'm most definitely not a professional. It should be a pretty casual environment (clearly, if they are asking a buddy to be the DJ). But, I thought I'd...

The death of rock n roll - Baloo
Stephen Hyden has been writing a largely excellent series on Grantland called the Winner's History of Rock n Roll, in which he looks at the most popular rock acts and what the hell happened to rock radio. It's beena fun read, but I think he gets to the core issue of "what's wrong with rock?" in this...

Re-evaluating the 1980s Best Picture winners - Baloo
The Best Picture thread inspired me to look at the 1980s, a decade renowned for being the low point in the Academy Awards. I’m going to try and re-issue the Oscars, using the same criteria that the Academy uses. So I’m not going to give it to a comedy or foreign film… just give the Oscars the benefi...

Music Board's Albums of the Year - Baloo
Sorry it's a tad late, but I've tabulated the vote for the top albums of the year, according to this board. 111 albums received at least one vote, but I decided to make this a top 27 list, as that was every album that received over 15 points, which required at least 2 people voting for it. There was...
