Those ole sons of Clem better get their licks in this year because they go to Georgia and FSU next year with a first time starter at QB and you know South Carolina will be ready to extend their streak to 6 over them.
FSU is going to take this game. I hate to say it but Dabo has that Big Game Bob ...

The new suit is much better than the old one simply because he keeps his underwear on under the costume.

I'll take the lower ERA and the lower WHIP than all of that. 1.74 ERA in 2000. Let that sink in.
ETA: And the better ERA+.
So in 2000, Pedro had the best WHIP in history and the second best ERA+ in history.
Pretty sure it's clear cut that 2000 was his best season....

1999 wasn't even his best season. 2000 was: ERA of 1.74, 7 CGs, 4 shutouts, ERA+ of 291, HP9 of 5.3, and a WHIP of .737 - which is the best in baseball history. ...

You can't honestly tell me that you believe that Gravity is more than a solid movie. There's no way. Unless you are going all in on visuals, then there is no way.

From an experience and story standpoint, Avatar shits on Gravity. Avatar, for all of it's cliches, was absolutely stunning. It's the only non-superhero movie of the last 10 years that I have gone to see in theaters twice. And it actually had a first act. Jake wasn't that great of a character, but he...
