17 consecutive title defenses. Heavyweight champion of the world for over a decade. Granted, we're not in the golden age of boxing, but this guy is ridiculous. No signs of slowing up either.

A lot of people are on these bandwagons. Here is your chance to go on record. Unfortunately, it will all end in disappointment again for the believers. Neither L.A. or Houston will even make it [i]to[/i] the Finals.
If you think otherwise, get it on record in this thread. No maybes, only yes's or...

| More Sports Board|| Is a Timeout Worth More Than 5 Yards? - Patrick_Bateman on 10/26/14 at 8:18 pm|
I saw so many 1st- and 3rd-quarter timeouts used today to avoid delay of game penalties. Is it really worth it? I mean, if it's 3rd and 1, then yes, obviously take the TO. But most of the situations I see are 1st/2nd downs, 3rd and longs, and the like. What do you gain? IMO, a timeout is more useful...
| Tiger Rant|| What's Your Play of the Game? - Patrick_Bateman on 10/26/14 at 10:38 am|
So many to choose from! Several great runs, the TD pass, several huge plays defensively. For me, it would either be Tre White's great play in the 4th to defend a would-be TD or Beckwith's 3rd down boom.
What say you? Gifs welcome.
Edited: Beckwith's play was on 3rd down, not 4th....
| Tiger Rant|| 401 Yards Total Offense - Patrick_Bateman on 10/25/14 at 11:29 pm|
259 rushing, 142 passing. Against supposedly the #1 defense in the country (before tonight). :bow:
Didn't look pretty at times, but the result speaks for itself. We pounded them into submission with O-line and running, which many people said would be impossible.
Hat's off to the whole team. E...
| Soccer Board|| Why Does Seattle's Pitch Look Like Shite? - Patrick_Bateman on 10/25/14 at 2:26 pm|
Part of the beauty of the game is the pitch. The lush green grass. For the most-supported team in MLS, Seattle's pitch looks fricking awful. This is not a new thing. Even if it's artificial turf (which it obviously is), you can make it look a lot better than that. It has that terrible plastic sheen ...

Sure, Leto had a decent performance in Dallas Buyers Club. And I like Leto. But he shouldn't have won the Oscar. Especially in a year with a performance like Fassbender's in 12 Years a Slave. It was damn near perfect. The Academy really got this one wrong IMO. I can't help but believe that Leto got ...

Strange coincidence, I had only finished reading Moby Dick less than one week before I saw this trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs-JfPjgiA4. Certainly an ambitious project (if it is to be done right), but Ron Howard is worthy of trust....

I am tech-nically illiterate. This is the best way I can explain my problem: In the past, when I searched something on Google Images, I could click any particular image, and it would enlarge the image (without opening the site where the image is found). It would basically preview the image. Now, whe...

| Movie/TV Board|| Why Do So Many People Watch Horror Movies? - Patrick_Bateman on 10/6/14 at 6:44 pm|
Honest question. Every time I turn around, there's a new horror movie with across-the-board low ratings, yet leading at the box office.
Take Gone Girl vs. Annabelle. One critically acclaimed, one not. Yet equal at the box office on opening weekend. I realize there's more to a movie than it's scor...
| More Sports Board|| Predict: Will Aaron Rodgers Ever Win Another Super Bowl? - Patrick_Bateman on 9/28/14 at 11:21 am|
I say no.
He's overrated IMO (as the responses to this post will probably illustrate). That's not to say he's not good - he is. But the people - and there are many - who say he's the best QB in the league are delusional. I'll go on record saying he has won his one and only Super Bowl.
