Goddamn, I really should send Scott Keith a fruit basket or something. Any time he posts a link to my blog, traffic skyrockets.I think I'll snail-mail him a copy of both of my books once they're out as a thank you.
LolHamiltonWins. Why do I even bother watching this shit?
"The Mets took a 2-0 lead on the Braves in the first inning of today's game. It's the first time the Braves have trailed this season, after a 5-0 start."Damn.
Now the team can learn how to come from behind.
Do you do the Mick Foley cheap pop-thumbs up every time you mention that you're an author?
Being at work on Sunday should be illegal.
Orton's run from late 2007-mid 08 was basically a poor man's version of 2000 HHH.
Heh...kinda? I imagine my shameless self-promotion gets annoying after awhile, but I can't help it. It's my absolute dream come true to finally have a book published, let alone TWO.
They did, until Bartolo Colon got his first RBI in a decade. 3-2 Mets, Bottom 4th.
In other baseball news:http://deadspin.com/college-teams-score-61-runs-in-only-exciting-minnesota-1697316432The game was so heated a nearby vehicle caught on fire, and caused a delay as smoke blew over the field.
40% of season 5 of "Game of Thrones" leaking, HBO must be feeling great.
I've written 6 books, they've published 4.
Starting Daredevil right now. Won't finish today but should finish at least half of it
Fuck the Mets. Every Mets fan I've ever met is a complete asshole.
As the *WOOOOOOOO* winner of the BOD March Madness pool, I hope y'all enjoy my shoot interview choices. They were chosen based on my interest in the time period, the train wreck/snarky possibilities, and overall entertainment value. Enjoy, ya sorry bastards!
Cena's hair situation in 2008 was weird.
Man, these new Indy cars are weird looking. And WTF is this track? It's like the racing equivalent of a backyard wrestling ring.
Nah he did grow it out a bit but by the end of the year I'm pretty sure he went back to having it shaved on the sides
I dislike working Sunday nights.
PRO TIP: spinach and eggplant pizza while watching baseball
Me too. Fortunately I now work at a place that's closed on Sunday.
I suddenly feel sorry for Bayless...
I can see why Cena prefers to go with the crew cut because other wise he really does look like Mark Wahlberg's long lost brother lol.
It's honestly not terrible, pretty easy night, actually, I just haven't adjusted to the night shift yet. Waking up a little early to spend time with the wife probably doesn't help.
Man there's a reason people pushing 30 are usually quitting their bands rather than just starting them. Getting 4 people together when we've all got jobs, kids in my case, and finding places to practice with drums set up, let alone gigs, is such a pain in the ass. Totally worth it but i'm really wishing i'd have been doing this 10 years ago.
Nah, only one of the 4 was chosen for it's pure awfulness
I've worked nights pretty much my whole life, I'm just not a morning person.What do you do?
I just realized.It's been a few days since we got a daily update hasn't it?
Samoans are still mad, news at 11
We got one Friday I think. Bayless takes the weekends off.
Oh. Then nevermind I guess I just hadn't noticed none on weekends.
Almost done with week 2 as s page designer for the Daily News.
The NYC Daily News?
Odd. I have not seen this.
The only news that mattered this weekend anyway: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=11gL-K6we4w
Press releases, Piers. I'm telling you. I really liked the first book, I'm on board when the second one comes out.
The one and only.
Doesn't he normally do them on Saturdays?
Just going on personal experience.
Are you looking forward to working with Dolan?
Interesting question - who had it worse - braves or mets fans? Each have one title in past 30 years and atl had all those close calls and always fell short.
Most Mets fans I know are pretty cool. I get shit at Mets Braves games but I am vocally rooting for the road team
Just finished. Definitely worth a binge, I think if it were a weekly, it'd have tanked "ratings" wise the way it was structured. Wasn't a daredevil comics person so no dog in that hunt
Every once in a while if there's something going on, but not often. I usually post the Saturday thread, but I've been at work the last few weeks and trying to post from my phone is such a pain the ass it's not worth the trouble. There's like 15 people with posting privileges, someone step up!
Not talking this thread today, but in general does it seem like the trolls are really coming out of the woodwork? Maybe I'm not around enough to get a proper feel, but it just seems ever since WrestleMania...
Yeah, I didn't mean it as a blanket statement. It just seems like every dickhead I know also happens to love the Mets.Go Blue Jays.
I think there's a lesser mod presence than in a while more than anything
Hillary's campaign off to a rousing start if Twitter trends are any indication: #WhyImNotVotingForHillary
Going to see the Jays next week
Very anti-climactic announcement, but I think that was on purpose.
"if Twitter trends are any indication"They're not.
I've found it to be the same 4 or 5 shitheads that have always been here, but I haven't been been around much during the day.
Eh, I know, more than likely RNC twitter botting than anything. Like real voters give a shit enough to tweet about this shit on a random April sunday afternoon
I'm tempted to create a burner account so I can upvote this twice. Fuck Twatter.
Yes. They play the Braves
That place is a dump.Ever go to the CN Tower?
No, I refuse.I like Rogers Centre. Quaker Steak and Lube is amazing
Trying not to think about it. I'm also keeping my options open. I have another interview with a nonprofit being scheduled for sometime in the next week or so, just to see if I can find something with a more normal schedule.
She should have just called it a day. Obama took her window. That said, she still has a decent chance since repubs are apparently taking their applications at a mental institution
I just don't see how both the News and Post can survive in the next few years unless Dolan and Murdoch are willing to just have losses
If you have a shot at being president, you might as well do it.
We're a year away from anything meaning anything. The opposition research to Hillary has been compiled over the last 20+ years. We now get a year of Dems pretending to field other potential candidates, Repubs concern trolling, and the utter freaksow that's going to be the Republican primary. Then 7 months of pretending it's a real race til Hilary probably wins.
And I will love every minute of it
Afraid of heights? I've never been to the Quaker Steak & Lube there, but we have one here and it's pretty sweet. Great name too. But seriously, the SkyDome is a shithole.
No, it's just a glorified tourist trap.I like that it's a dome, so if it's cold, you're fine, and it has this rundown B grade charm that makes me smile. I've never seen the Jays win either.
Does it really matter in the end?
I'm curious if she makes Gore's mistake and shuns Obama. Cost him the election imo, pussyfooting around Bill. People that hate Obama chances are already hate Hillary, so you run the risk of alienating Obama backers
The ad-bots have stormed out in the last couple weeks... some posts eating 2-3 of them.
Obama's already come out in favor of her. I think she'll accept an endorsement and ride coattail on some issue but not others.Yea, Gore made a huge mistake. He lost his home state!
Funny, I've been to about 10 Jays games and I don't think I've ever seen them lose. The place is just out of date though. And the 500 section is absolutely terrifying.
Yep, that's why I never really got behind the "butttt Floridaaaaa" people, if you can't pull your home state coming off a fairly successful presidency, fuck it
I sat there with my friend and had no problems. We moved around a lot which I won't be able to do this time because I'm a cripple
In fairness, Al Gore and Tennessee have very little in common. It'd be like running Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson out of 1960's Alabama. Sure he's from there, but most of the people would rather vote for anybody else.
Picking Leiberman as VP didn't help either. That alone cost him my vote.
...arkansas too in a close one, iirc.
Hillary is so far and away the front runner right now.She has better odds then she did in 2012
Trending is EXCEEDINGLY easy. You know how WWE goes nuts over trending on twitter.You know who else is #1 trend on twitter during ppvs--ROH. A company with less than 1/100th the fan base
No one asked you hosier.BTW, I'm clearly joking. Now go get me a poutine and a Molson.
Eh, it's mostly Republicans going batshit. I saw stuff like "Because she says she loves kids but wants TO KILL BABIES WITH ABORTIONS!" and other shit.
I love how people think that abortion is made illegal it will go away. Because that totally worked with drugs!
Another random: You'd think if media companies gave enough of a shit about piracy as they claim they do, they'd have come up with some type of randomized fingerprinting to find whoever leaked Thrones down to the person. But now HBO can claim some bullshit piracy economics crap to say they've lost eleventy jillion dollars
but it would be murder. They would get to prosecute people caught abortioning.They'd love that
I'd imagine in most cases the best strategy is to accept the endorsement and have the incumbent stump for you at the DNC but don't rely too much on it for most of your campaign. In Hillary's case it really doesn't make a huge difference since by now most voters have some kind of opinion of her.
The gap between how much I want the dems to win and how much I actually like the dems is depressingly large.Like, the Democrats are awful--how the Republicans manage to be consistently worse via batshittery is astounding.
I think there's a pretty solidly understood quid pro quo between the two: she helped him get his 8--he'll help her get hers.
You can just take a pill for that shit now...The ideal solution would be to try to do everything to make sure chicks don't get knocked up in the first place, unless they want kids. Oh, wait, conservatives hate contraception too. Fuck...
Not really, because the campaigns never end. It's just that now once you're elected president, the other party gets to actively govern against you. Only every few cycles do the people end up getting pissed off enough that they start tossing people out in midterm elections, then everyone pretends to play nice awhile and pass some legislation. But soon enough it's back to the tug-of-war game.
My son and I just got to meet Honky Tonk Man at Cherry City ComicCon. He was super nice and fun to talk to.
Okay, seriously this time, why do you even care? You live in Ontario.Anyway, it doesn't really matter. Democrats, republicans, it's all the same, bought and paid for by corporate CEOs.
Cabrera is seriously the best baseball player I've seen in my lifetime
#WeAre2CW trended worldwide during a show once with only like a thousand people there. It was their first iPPV though.
Ugly, ugly crash in this race. Somehow this guy drove away, but had he hit that fence in the middle of the car instead of the back he'd probably have broken his neck.
The last 4 presidential elections have shown that its not enough to get your side to hate the other guy (this time girl). Your side has to like your own candidate.They're gonna scream Whitewater and Vince Foster and Benghazi to the top of their lungs, and it'll all mean nothing the minute Hillary wins the primary. Meanwhile her potential opponents will be arm wrestling to see who gets to man a .50 caliber on top of the US/Mexico border...
Has there been anything noteworthy to post
It was even worse during the Doctor of Thuganomics days.

So am I the only that's not planning on voting in '16 more than likely. The current candidates do nothing for me.
He's never been the best player in any given season, so no, he isn't the best player of your lifetime.
Trust me, not just you.
Eh, depends on the repub. Truly batshit crazy, I'll vote Hillary. They find a moderate that tells the right/tea party to fuck off, I'll vote for them, somewhere in between, I won't have to stop in on the way to work
I'm a firm believer in the "if you don't vote you have no right to complain" school of thought. Though it doesn't matter, the Dems always win my district by a mile.
Mike Trout says hi.

Best hitter of the last ten years. But overall player, probably not.
Wow, these Verizon ads are beyond awful.
I don't see the Republicans biting the bullet and nominating a moderate, sadly.
I'll just vote for Kodos.(Or a third party candidate).
I'd just write-in vote for myself but I was born a year too late.
This race is a fucking mess, no wonder IndyCar is about to go bankrupt.
Jordan Speith chasing history at the Masters, -17 with the Woods record at -18.
Regardless of what you think of Barry Bonds he is the best hitter of the 21st century. Gwynn is the best hitter of the 90s. George Brett the 80s. I don't know about the 70s. Let's go Pete Rose?!
Bonds retired in 2007. Since then, Cabrera has been the best pure hitter and Bonds last good year was in 2004.
I'm hit or miss on elections myself. Depends on what's going on down-ballet usually, on the state & local level.
Bonds' 00-04 surpasses anything anyone has done this century. I think Cabrera is up there but people actually pitch to him
Watching NBA TV's Bad Boys doc...which is basically just the 30 for 30 episode with the licensed music removed
Agree. But the last ten years, Cabrera has been the best pure hitter in baseball.
Hitting 40+ homers in a season is a great year. Hitting 25 or so like Bonds was in his final years is a good year.
So, Republicans are the scum of the US?Sounds like the PP/PSDB in here.
those things are starting to get really repetitive. It's like a WWE main event style
.270 with 25 homers is a decent year in 2004. Since then the game has moved away from just benefiting the hitters.
I agree with this.
Eh, both parties suck, Repubs pray on societal fears though so they're the scummiest
We have a lot in common, somehow they're dominating.
Like PP/PSDB, they still use the "communist danger" argument.
But how many teams would kill for those numbers right now though? I can think of at least 5-10.
Bogied 7, but I think he'll still pass the record.
Nitpick: Daredevil is one word. :)
Feeling the pressure, missing those putts.
One of the best things Kevin Smith did was future endeavored Karen Page. So long, not gonna miss you.
He was falling apart at the end yesterday too, not to mention what happened last year.
What's crazy about Bonds' final year is that I don't remember him playing that much, but he still managed to bang out 28 homers.
Netflix is like crack. I've just binged 4 seasons of The League. The family practically had to peel me off my bed just to get me to run into town to do some laundry.
For 21st century purposes, "Communist" has been replaced by "Islamic."
Tiger swinging in the woods (heh) and clubbed a tree root on the downswing. Sounded like it hurt.
MOAR Tiger cursing
I don't blame him on that one
Islam is not problem in here.
I can't really blame them for using outdated societal fears. You'd think something like "praying the gay away" wouldn't work at all in 2015, but somehow people still eat that shit up.
Rose only three back too. I bo lieve in Spieth but those footsteps are coming
Look at his 2004 year. Unreal stuff45 HR 101 RBI 232 BB .362 BA120 IBB
Must've hurt, yeah.
That was just a weird year, everyone knew SF was gonna ride the Aaron chase then wash their hands clean of him as soon as the season was over
The definition of video game numbers.
I had been flip flopping them so now I know!
232 fucking walks.
Looked good on the approach after.
100 walks in a season is terrific. He more than doubled that!
He got that in INTENTIONAL passes
Oh for sure, even 14 year old me knew that season was his curtain call(and rightfully so, even if he didn't have the 'roids stuff, I'd still think he need to move on). The Yankees could take a page out SF's book.
Well yeah, but the game is different now. But Bonds 00-04 will never be matched.
I'll be in touch.
So Jon Hamm was a psycho frat boy douche, eh?
Continuing on this Bonds' stuff, let's take a look at his best year pre-98.46 HR123 RBI126 BB.336 BA43 IBBYeah, he was taking steroids alright.
Bonds was the GOAT before he left Pittsburgh.
For sure, I can't think of many greatness of players' stretch that rival those 4 years.
Wow, Tiger may be done with that injury, he shanked that tee shot really fucking bad
I wonder how Griffey Jr. would have ended up if for not all the injuries he had.
He would have definitely been in the conversation.
I wonder if Cleveland is thinking about tanking so they don't have to face Boston.
Tiger is turning into late stage Ric Flair, but without the money problems. It's his life but why keep putting yourself through it, ya know?
And knowing is half the battle!
As long as they don't face a good big man they will be fine.
88-54, everybody better have had a day off for the Cavs, lol.
Boston can give a team a scare in the 1st. The Hawks are banged up and if I am them, I want no part of the Celtics right now.
It looks like Lebron and Kyrie didn't play. So a little more understandable.
C'mon Vasco, win this shit.
Weird how the dark horse in the East isn't Washington or Toronto, but fucking Boston.
He had over 500 AB's just once the last 12 years of his career and still had 630 career HR's. Amazing
Since trading Rondo and Jeff Green they started to win. Shows how much those two helped the team. Hell, Evan Turner is looking like a solid NBA player now.
Stop cheating in Flamengo's favor ref.
2 games left, Toronto and Chicago tied at 48-32 for 3/4 (Toronto tiebreaker)...one seed has Atlanta in the second round, the other has Cleveland. Hmm.
Flipping to "Moneyball" during Masters breaks, forgot Andy Dwyer played Scott Hatteberg
That movie totally ignoring their pitching staff in favor of a Bad News Bears narrative is hilarious.
Book did the same thing too. And Tejada and Chavez, who both had 30+ HRs that year
"What's your biggest fear?""A baseball hit in my general direction."Macklin, you son of a bitch.
Football's popularity leads to more attention given when teams with worse records host playoff games, but same deal happens in basketball...Bulls swept Toronto in the regular season, but the Raps have the seeding tiebreaker as winners of the crappy Atlantic Division.
I dont vote at all, so its not just you. Until the day comes that my single vote will change an election, its staying that way
Triple Crown in 2012. You're fucking high if your going to say there was a better player in the game
Gotta get that World Series win. JUST ONE and ill be content and happy
