re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - Martin Blank
Lewis being closeted is basically an open secret in F1. There is plenty of speculation that his only goal left in F1 is to beat the Schumacher record for most WDC’s. Then he will retire, come out and embark on the hip hop/fashion career he has been hinting at for years now. ...

re: RIP Norm Macdonald - Martin Blank
I can’t find the clip of it for the life of me. But I’ve seen someone in comedy asked about why Norm wasn’t a bigger deal in show business. The answer was along the lines of “he’s brilliant but the most unprofessional person in Hollywood. If you cast him as the lead of your sitcom, not only will...

re: Formula 1 2021 Season Thread - Martin Blank
There was a lot of thought that McLaren might go with their engines when Seidl came over from that group. Word is that the WEC Power Unit that Porsche/Audi runs could be converted to the current F1 engine formula relatively easily. ...

re: Walker Howard the new #1 QB on 247 - Martin Blank
Good athlete. He was the 8thgrade QB in middle school the year that Howard left and went to Ascension Episcopal. He’s gonna be a guy who has a chance as a pitcher though, and probably a better one than football. ...

re: Orgeron’s business, TAF added as Title IX lawsuit defendants - Martin Blank
It’s never RICO. So it’s probably good that they have resorted to this tactic. Good chance it means they have nothing else: [link=(https://www.popehat.com/2016/06/14/lawsplainer-its-not-rico-dammit/)]It’s Never RICO[/link]...

re: NATE YESKIE - Martin Blank
Interesting that Johnson is getting shoutouts from Alan Jaeger. He’s a longtime SoCal pitching guru, with a specialty in long toss. Hopefully that means Johnson is plugged into the young, innovative pitching culture that’s out there, enough to make a great hire: [link=(https://twitter.com/jae...

re: Rivals: Arizona's Jay Johnson emerges as frontrunner - Martin Blank
The problem with McDonnell is that no sane person would ever leave UL with the contract he has. It’s a monster: - It started in 2019 at $1.15 million a season; - any year he just MAKES a super regional it goes up $100,000 a year. There are retention bonuses in there also. - he can extend ...

re: Flight aware - Baton Rouge to Louisville - Martin Blank
Should have known to just google. Thanks. That’s a new plane for LSU coach searching, as far as I’m aware. Makes sense though. LSU’s recent change in law firms made the use of their previous favorite “stealth plane” a little more difficult ...

re: For what it's worth, and you can dismiss this if you want... - Martin Blank
McDonnell would be a tough pull. I think it was Mississippi State that made a run at him. Whoever it was scared Louisville into giving McDonnell a 7 year deal that he can roll over each year. I haven’t read the actual contract, but per the article below it started at $1.15 million a season, and s...

re: What does PM see in Bianco? - Martin Blank
In order to stay at LSU he had to have his scholarship percentage reduced. A team can’t just unilaterally reduce a kid’s percentage. He had to enter the portal, become a “free agent,” then return to LSU under a new agreement. I have no idea if he actually looked around any. My guess is th...

re: Paging Tigerbaitlawyer - What the Hell is going on? - Martin Blank
Not guys like Chase, even though that’s clearly about the draft and not COVID. But Gilbert, Olujari etc are a different animal. Especially if more are on the way as rumored. Nobody would believe that’s COVID related. A Baton Rouge jury in a contract dispute trial sure wouldn’t. If LSU gets ...
