re: MLB'S beat the streak thread - Chili Davis
Downloaded the app a few days ago because of this thread. I have been as high as 6, then Bryce Harper killed me against Dickey. I learned that I should probably stay away from kuckleballers. Blackmon has been pretty solid so far. I'm at 4 again with some shaky picks. We'll see... Pretty fun ga...

re: Injuries that changed the course of a season/postseason - Chili Davis
I don't think that it would have mattered in the end, but Rajon Rondo dislocating his elbow against the Heat in the 2011 playoffs was significant. That was pretty gross how he fell on his arm. He came back, but he wasn't the same after that. ...

re: Johnny Cueto just threw at Yasmani Grandals head - Chili Davis
Went to the game today. Just got back to my hotel. Stupid on Cueto's part because a run scored. Everyone around me thought that Kershaw was going after Cueto when he jogged out of the dugout, through the mass of people. Nah, just going to warm up. Clayton helping out with the pace of play wheneve...

re: What's the fastest you've ever run a mile? 5K? 10K? - Chili Davis
6:08 mile. This was fun. A "predictor" mile where we had to predict our mile time, then run without a watch or music on a bike trail. Closest time won a pair of shoes. 22:19 5k 53:02 10k only did one of these. About the least amount of fun a person could have on the 4th of July outside of ...

re: Ok so this really happened in 2007 - Chili Davis
I hated coming to work that football season. My boss was a KU grad and the owner is a Mizzou grad. Bama got beat by ULM. I had just left Texas with an office full of UT fans during their championship run 2 years prior. I was beginning to wonder if football could be enjoyable again....

re: (2012, 20_ _ Nat'l Champs) Alabama 2017 Softball Discussion - Chili Davis
[quote]So the run should have counted. Bama lost that game by a run, the umpires might have cost them the game. [/quote] They might have. We'll never know with the way we've been hitting lately. I asked this B12 ump as soon as it happened and he agreed with the SEC ump, that the out was applied c...

re: (2012, 20_ _ Nat'l Champs) Alabama 2017 Softball Discussion - Chili Davis
[quote]However, the 2nd home run doesn't count because the player didn't touch home plate. [/quote] I got a rule interpretation on this, because I was curious and I'm a softball umpire. I talked to a B12 umpire and this is a summary of what he said. He had to ask as well because he hadn't come a...

re: How many adults you know that have "only one year left of college" ? - Chili Davis
Me. I was a sophomore for 15 years. I ran out of money paying for classes I didn't go to. Joined the military and got medically discharged after 12 years. Using the GI Bill to finish up these last 12 hours for this 18th year senior. ...

re: What is the town of Corinth, Mississippi like? - Chili Davis
As others have said... Don't stay in Corinth. Its about an hours drive down 72 from Florence. I have family in Corinth and there isn't a whole lot to do there. I grew up in St. Florian. I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've seen anyone outside of the Times Daily mention St. Florian on the in...

re: Anyone ever been through a "heat burst" (weather, not sex) - Chili Davis
We had one in Wichita about 7 or 8 years ago. The winds picked up to about 70 mph and apparently the temp got up around 105 around midnight. I slept through it and heard about it the next day. The storm popped up really quickly and died even faster. ...

re: Boston Marathon - Chili Davis
[quote]The training is actually the fun part. I guess it depends on how you look at distance races [/quote] I liked training way more than race day. Getting the shits before the start and completely locking up with cramps at mile 22 was not fun at all. I got stupid the night before the race and...

re: Melt watch: Kansas special election today. - Chili Davis
I honestly think that the race is much closer than a lot of Republicans want to believe. Cruz was in town stumping for Estes yesterday. Do you think he would have come up here if this were a blowout? I am a Registered Republican and voted for Estes, but I cannot deny the momentum that Thompson seems...

re: Where were you when Chris Davis ran it all the way back? - Chili Davis
In Topeka at a Buffalo Wild Wings after the Kansas 6A State Championship. I was the only one watching football in there with an Alabama hat on. There were a ton of KU fans there waiting on a basketball game to start when what seemed like all of the TVs in the building switched to the Iron Bowl rig...

re: Greg Marshall to Mizzou 2.0 - Chili Davis
I don't think Gregg is going anywhere this year. Next year, they will be stacked as they only lose 2 walk-ons to graduation this year. They drubbed everyone in conference this year when everyone is pointing to next year as "the year". Same story, different year. Gregg talks like this and it se...

re: Cheating marathoner busted by high-res picture of her Garmin fitness tracker - Chili Davis
[quote]Better argument is that she could have forgotten to start her watch until 2 miles in.[/quote] This is the only way that she could have explained that photo away. With the other evidence out there, she cheated and deserves the punishment that is handed down. I normally forget to turn for...

re: Capital Cities That Are More Dilapidated Than Baton Rouge - Chili Davis
[quote]Topeka is the worst I've ever been to.[/quote] Topeka is pretty bad. It's like the 80's were there and are now gone, but they left all their empty strip malls behind. The only redeeming quality that I have seen in that place is an old, run down, Russian deli. Cash only, but some of the bes...
