re: Flukiest Single Season Accomplishment in Sports - nvasil1
[quote]Leicester City was probably the biggest surprise in sports history, but they’ve been decent since their title. They’ve been a consistent top 10 team the last couple of years. I think for it to be the biggest fluke they would need to have fallen further since their championship season. ...

re: Dodgers fan struck by ball cannot see out of right eye (she claims) - nvasil1
[quote]Walking up to a concession look over your shoulder at home plate[/quote] And then trip and cave your teeth in. I'm quite amused by how many people still think the average American at a ballpark can handle or avoid every line drive simply by keeping an eye on the ball.:lol:...

re: Will names like Brayden, Kayden, Dax & Jaxxon - nvasil1
I typically enjoy the trashy name threads, but seeing shite like Brentsyn, Kyson and Jhett borders on child abuse. I'll also note that Kyson autocorrected to "my son" when I typed it out, so that might explain the inspiration for that one....

re: With it being the 150th year anniversary of CFB - nvasil1
Would like to see a feature on the 1905 Michigan-Chicago game. Thanksgiving Day. Biggest rivalry in the West at the time. National championship on the line. Amos Alonzo Stagg. Fielding Yost. Michigan had a 56-game unbeaten streak. The University of Chicago president was on his deathbed. De...

Thanks, didn't realize that. I just don't see the downside to it. Some of the most expensive seats at every ballpark have always been behind netting anyway....

[quote]that's exactly what's going on in the span of a year or so if the trend continues[/quote] Based on what? It's not like MLB is mandating it. The Sox are expanding netting on their own. If other clubs are doing it, I haven't heard yet....

[quote]People also seem to underestimate the reaction time needed to get out of the way.

[quote]My issue with the netting extending down the foul poles is where does it logically end? [/quote] I get the slippery slope argument, but the number of fatalities in 150 years of MLB is microscopic. That doesn't mean precautions like extra netting shouldn't be made, but it also doesn't me...

[quote]Mlb is trying to build a love for the game in the younger generation so there is a wealth of distractions put in BY THE teams to entertain fans (videos mascots etc)[/quote] Exactly. The lazy argument against more netting is to "pay attention to the game". I somewhat empathize with that...

re: So why are people so against extra netting at baseball games? - nvasil1
The White Sox already announced they're installing netting down to the foul poles. It might even happen before the end of this season. The players seem to be for it. Japan has had it for years. Fans will get over it quickly, just like when the nets were extended to the end of the dugouts....

re: St. Louis cardinal fans looking like LSU baseball fans - nvasil1
I'm not sure why this is bothering people so much. Pujols is a HOFer who won 2 World Series with the Cards. Those fans can appreciate him as much as they want. Hell, White Sox fans gave fricking Melky Cabrera a standing ovation when he came back to Chicago after being traded to the Royals.:lol:...
