re: Bud Selig...best commisioner in the history of MLB? Pretty hard to argue against - Baloo
Well, considering most commissioners have ranged from incompetent to corrupt to both... yeah. He might be the best of a horrible, horrible lot. Landis was a racist pig who handed down so many bizarre, capricious rulings it is an open question whether he was merely drunk most of the time or just n...

re: Everton FC 2014-2015 Season Long Thread: The Breakthrough Season - Baloo
Yeah, I'm a Leeds fan. I can't betray them and just start rooting for someone else, but I still want to have someone to at least sort of support in the EPL season. I mean, other than rooting for a meteor to hit Old Trafford. At the end of the day, I just cheer for anyone but Man U to win the trophy....

re: 25 Best Music Documentaries streaming on Netflix - Baloo
I swear to God, music critics would praise a 20 minute video of James Murphy furiously masturbating. LCD Soundsystem has to have one of the highest ratios of critical adulation to actual enjoyability of any artist in history. He's not terrible, but he's nowhere near the savant he's portrayed as. He ...

[quote]he's an arsenal fan[/quote] I am most definitely NOT an Arsenal fan. It's even more depressing: I'm a Leeds fan. So really, all I have left is free floating hate towards everyone.

Nolan Ryan's walks record. He has 2795 walks, and #2, Steve Carlton has, 1833. That's over 50% more than the second guy on the list. It has never been remotely threatened. Johnny Vander Meer's record for consecutive no hitters will never be broken. Maybe tied, but not broken....

Sort of. Adult men tend to buy the trade paperbacks and compendiums, not the cheap monthly books. There still, of course, are lifetime comic buyers who still get every issue, but those monthlies are aimed at hooking teenage boys. They sell adults the books of multiple issues, gathered in one edition...

I do agree they are making progress.
