| Soccer Board|| Thinking about picking an MLS team and diving in. - bdskelton on 7/2/14 at 5:26 am|
After the last world cup, I tried to get into club soccer by watching premier league games on ESPN but ultimately lost interest. For one, there is a seven hour time zone difference. Another, I think the no playoffs thing at the end of the season is pretty anticlimactic (Man City a couple of years ...

I cant stand when athletes or anybody really says how "humbled" they are by their accomplishment. If I just won a championship or whatever, I would feel like a badass. Humbled is being put it in your place. This phrase gets repeated so often they dont even think about it....

Just go prepaid with straight talk. If you already finished out the contract and own your phone, you can take that phone to straighttalk and pay $50 a month to basically still get the same service you had before.
I was in the exact same boat as you. Had a single phone on a contact plan at arou...

I think the show should put a focus on the Manderlys (Think that's the right family. The fatasses loyal to the Starks). I really enjoyed reading all of their scheming: (1) sending Davos on a mission to find Rickon Stark; (2) Frey Pies. I think if done right, and that includes expanding some th...

Random thought thread, but I'm watching some episodes on syndication (around season 5 or so) and it kept showing flashes of Robin/Ted which make sense knowing the ultimate ending. I initially hated the finale, then tried to defend it, but now hate it again for this reason:
The ultimate point of...
| Movie/TV Board|| What movie adaptations are better than the books? - bdskelton on 6/4/14 at 7:37 pm|
In general I tend to like original books better than their movie/tv adaptations. Harry Potter for sure. Game of Thrones the tv show has been leveling the playing field for a while, but I probably still prefer the books.
I've never really been a purist, so I think I tend to give adaptations a be...

He acted like it was the players' duty to sit out in protest. Screw that, they were just trying to win a tough playoff series against th...

Off topic, but I've been thinking about how books 4/5 will plot to seasons 5/6. I think one of the best plots of those seasons, and maybe of the series overall, will be the Aegon stuff. Yea we don't know the ultimate payoff yet in the books, and it's highly believed he could be a fAegon, but if the...

I don't think the other contestants are as mad at Tony as you think.

Can't really quantify it, but it does appear that everyone just respects the game he's pl...

I think the main reason he didn't is because he feels that he can dupe the rest of them that the special power is it can be used at Final 4, guaranteeing him to reach the final 3. A pretty good idea actually, and I imagine tha...

Don't think I've ever disliked a survivor contestant any more. And it's even worse because she thinks she's winning/played the better game that she's getting this far. She has ZERO chance to win in the end, whether she is there or not. Trish's comment about Kass...
