re: Which of these unnamed players would you prefer based on stats? - Baloo
The only way to have a TS% that high is to shoot a bunch of three pointers, so I'll take Player B, as this looks like the stat line of a power forward, and I want my PF to play inside and eat your soul. I'll take those extra rebounds. Hopefully, Player B also throws elbows. ...

re: How's your bracket holding up? - Baloo
I had 7 of 8 Elite Eight teams alive headed into last night. Lost 2 (Michigan and Zona), but no Final Four teams yet. So I'm still in contention, but I got all my eggs in the Gonzaga basket. Florida making the Final Four would also help me a ton. Ugh. Go Gators. ...

re: NHL Season Long Thread - Baloo
Man, that game was fun. A lot of end to end action, very few whistles, and a ton of shots. They just went back and forth, throwing haymakers at one another, while Holtby and Bob pretty much saved everything. OK, then they skated around in the last two or three minutes to secure the "We Both Hate ...

re: Huggins is a good coach - Baloo
Also, I think Huggins loves being the underdog. He has that sort of mentality. He doesn't belong at a blue blood... he'd hate it there. He wants angry kids who have been passed over and play with a chip on their shoulder. He doesn't want coddled superstars. Those aren't his type of players. Man, ...

re: Who are the Sleeping Giants of CFB? - Baloo
I think the biggest factor in a Sleeping Giant is opportunity. Like, its hard for A&M to rise up because Bama is currently ruling college football, and then you still have power programs throughout the SEC West. You first need to identify the divisions which are ripe to be dominated by a team, which...

re: Hidden gems (great shows that aren't widely popular, to be precise) - Baloo
Terriers. Seriously, watch Terriers. Forget the dumb name. It's a great show. The Knick. Penny Dreadful. Both deserved larger audiences as well. But I'm not kidding about Terriers. ...

re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: From the director of In Bruges - Baloo

[quote]i know that Nocturnal Animals is very different from Passengers, but the fact is that the RT score did come into play and continues to come into play when choosing a movie because we have such little time to watch adult movies, but I've seen Trolls like 40 times in the past 3 weeks[/quote] ...

re: Best stand-up comedian of all time - Baloo
Great post, Ace. I agree with just about all of it, and I'm not gonna die on the hill of Pryor being #2 instead of #1A/B. While I think Carlin changed how comedians operate, you're right, so did Pryor. There's no playing stadiums or arenas without Pryor's sheer audacity. He also was the guy who ...

re: When the Angels miss the playoffs this season.. - Baloo
That division is so loaded. I don't think he gets fired just for failing to win the division, but the team can't move backwards. He's got the worst roster of the 4 contenders, so there is at least the excuse that you can pin it on the GM. ...

re: vans warped tour lineup released - Baloo
A lot of nostalgia bands: the Adolescents, Dickies, TSOL, Save Ferris, Suicide Machines, GWAR, Sick of it All, Anti-Flag, and Big D and the Kids Table. About the only new band I'd have any interest in is War on Women, who are awesome, but there's no way this is their scene. ...

Have fun. It's a virtual playoff game, and it should be awesome. Good luck to the Jackets, too. We get to do this one more time down the stretch. Schedule makers must have known something the rest of us didn't. ...

re: Best stand-up comedian of all time - Baloo
Yeah, and different people are trying to do different things. Tig Nataro's Live set is already legendary, but it also doesn't have any jokes. It's just a person who is almost literally at the end of her tether. I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone (but if you're a fan of standup, go find it). Mean...

re: The Nice Guys - Baloo
This is Shane Black's best movie since Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. And a lot of it is Gosling, who just killed it in this movie. He's so wonderfully devoid of anything resembling a positive characteristic. And he is really funny when getting beaten up. The bathroom scene is so great. I loved the hell ou...

re: Best stand-up comedian of all time - Baloo
Honestly, I think it's George Carlin because of the way he created the way comedians work to this day. Do the special and then start with a blank page the next day. Spend all year building a set, do a special, and then start over again. Before Carlin, comedians tended to stick with routines for year...
