re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
I think the best series is clearly going to be Boston-Columbus. Boston is the best team left (I threw up in my mouth) and I'm super high on Columbus and how they are playing right now. Should be a skilled, physical series. The winner should be the favorite to win the Cup. ...

re: Avengers: Endgame - NO SPOILERS THREAD - Reviews - RT Score at 96 - Baloo
I thought the review was fine, but some of the discussion after was what made it bad. No harm, no foul. I hid your post to be safe, but I do feel it was made in good faith without trying to be a spoil sport. You're good. ...

re: NO SPOILERS AVENGERS END GAME THREAD - Baloo
I've fixed the thread and hidden the discussion. I don't think it was that bad, and it was a good faith review that didn't reveal anything critical, but I've edited to be safe. But if you do intentionally spoil the movie in that thread, you will be banned. Try not to be a jerk. ...

MESSAGE FROM ADMIN: I've hidden the posts. I don't think they were actually spoilers, but they were close enough, so I hid them and the ensuing discussion. Please keep this thread spoiler free. There is a spoiler thread already. EDITED FURTHER MESSAGE FROM ADMIN: If you intentionally spo...

re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
Honestly, in most cases, the best goalie advanced. They are all pretty damn good. I'd probably go, and don't hold me to this because I do think they are all pretty close: 1 Bishop (DAL) 2 Bobrovsky (CBS) 3 Grubauer (COL) 4 Rask (BOS) 5 Binnington (STL) 6 Lehner (NYI) 7 Mrazek (CAR) 8 Jones...

re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
Played like garbage and deserved to lose. Simple as that. The first OT, especially, was a total goat rodeo. Holtby let in two soft goals in regulation, one because his defense decided to not defend. It was a team effort. But... this team wasn't really going anywhere with its injuries. Oshie is o...

re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
I'm afraid to say anything about last night for fear of a jinx. But the Sharks got a gift of a call (though it was a minor), but come on... four goals on a power play? At some point, it's on you to make a stop. MAF chose a bad time to turn back into a pumpkin. ...

re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
It was a terribly officiated game and the goal call was ridiculous. It was so bad, no one knew the reasoning until later (goalie interference, which makes no sense... an attacking player is allowed to go into the crease and make contract if the puck is free in the paint). But Ovi is right... refs...

re: Endgame- what’s your plan? - Baloo
I don't have a plan yet, but I have little kids who probably aren't ready for this level of intensity. So I might go to the movies in the middle of the night and see it while everyone is sleeping, seeing as places are showing it 24/7. ...

re: 'Whiplash' Is The Best Film of The Past 5 Years - Agree or Disagree? - Baloo
I wouldn't argue for it as the best of the last five years, but I wouldn't argue against it. ARRIVAL is probably my favorite of the past five years, but I could be convinced otherwise. There's been a lot of great films recently. Hell, look at 2014, the year WHIPLASH came out. Checking out imdb, h...

re: TexAgs Info pt. 2 WE RIDIN!! - Baloo
Is it bad that I trust their reporting more than anyone in the LSU media? Or is it just because Liucci has ever incentive to say its NOT a done deal?...

re: Best/worst GoT 8x1 reunion - Baloo
I really liked the Jon/Arya reunion because it was a classic case of reality never lives up to fantasy. We built this thing up in our heads, but as soon as Jon asked if she had ever had to use her sword, you realize that he doesn't know a damn thing about her. We want them back in Season 1, and ther...

re: TexAgs Info - Baloo
If it's about money, we're screwed. A&M can money whip LSU into submission. We need this to be about control (ok, and money) and mama callin'. Woodward has the leverage to get whatever he wants out of LSU, and should use it....

re: What’s your biggest gripe with Alleva - Baloo
[quote]Joe Alleva won't put his job on the line for anything he really believes. He thinks Miles needs to go, but he won't stand by that call. Thinks Wade shouldn't be suspended, but won't fight F. King on that. And on, and on. It's never his fault, and it's always somebody else's call that he's sad...

re: Stanley Cup Playoff Thread - Baloo
That is the worst choke I have ever seen, and I'm a Caps fan. At least the Caps had the decency to lose in 7 to a goalie playing out of his friggin' mind. The Bolts lost in 4 and got flat beat. I'm really regretting not pulling the trigger on picking the upset. There's just something wrong there. ...
