    2021 NFL Season Thread

    You can see the look on Fields's face, he looks stressed out and desperate trying to make something happen but the offense around him is worthless. Should he be getting rid of the ball faster, yes, should he be protecting the ball when he's pressured, yes, but... every play? At that point he might as well just never pass. A game like today, or the Browns game, you have to wonder if there's even anything useful on tape for him to learn from.

    2021-22 NBA Thread

    I see Lavine and Vuce can score at every level and they have more scorers now who can help carry the load that haven't existed for years, not even the Rose-era Bulls. I'm wondering how their defense is going to hold up against better opponents but I think the offense is legit. The team so far - necessary caveat - is a little more complete than I thought. The pieces might not fit together perfectly but they seem to work. I didn't watch any Bulls games last year (not intentionally, they just weren't on national TV and I didn't have League Pass) so I haven't seen Lavine play in a while, he's improved a LOT. He's the best 2 the team has had since you-know-who. I don't think there's anything he can't do on the floor at this point.

    Really, really digging what Lonzo Ball is bringing to the Bulls so far. Better than I expected (I expected an upgrade).

    Sox playoff tickets on Sale Wed 2pm

    It's slightly reassuring to know that everyone on here is also bitching about the fact that they were charged immediately or the ALCS tickets and that Ticketmaster takes their sweet ass time processing the refund, as I sit every day looking at my credit card balance that's twice as high as it should be. Just get it back to me before the grace period geez
  5. I mean, yeah, but... Hernandez. Black hole.
  6. No one on earth knows why LaRussa brought in Hernandez, who sucks, to replace Engel
  7. God, that was such a thorough, absolute pants-shitting by Kimbrel. Unbelievable. (Or completely believable, it's what he does). On an unrelated note, I chatted up a bunch of Astros fans at the game and they were all really cool and friendly, asking questions about the Sox and whatnot. "Good luck but not really" etc

    KImbrel meets the Kimbrel kid

    White Sox-Astros Game 1 3:07 Start Time

    It was easier to get Sox playoff tickets than it was to get City Connect jerseys.

    Anderson vs. Moncada

    2019 changed everything for him and, ironically, I think is why there are still so many people who think he's not actually a good player when he really is. People think since he's not doing 6 WAR that he's dogging it or whatever.

    Anderson vs. Moncada

    lol I totally forgot Moncada was a 2B prospect when he came here. I mean I knew that, it just seems like forever ago since I last thought about it.
  12. Well considering I am scheduled to get there about 9:30 am, if it's too early for me I'm going to be pissed lmao
  13. I'll be getting there Friday morning for game 2 staying with a friend downtown. I'm also going to game 3 in Chicago so Saturday being an off day gives me some much needed cushion. (this is assuming the Sox don't get the 2 seed because that changes my plans completely)

    White Sox playoff position tracker

    My thinking here was it was easier to book the flight now since I can cancel it in a few days anyway (I used points, they all get refunded back immediately). But yeah ALCS, no idea who the opponent is gonna even be yet, it's gonna be short notice no matter what.

    Sox playoff tickets on Sale Wed 2pm

    I got an error message on one of the tickets I was trying to buy but it worked out in my favor because I was actively fucking up (see above). When it bounced me out and I had to enter the queue again I realized I was trying to get ALCS Game 1 instead. I had to pay a little more on StubHub but it wasn't TOO bad.

    White Sox playoff position tracker

    God, trying to time travel around playoff games is so stressful. I live in Baltimore and was planning to go to a game in Houston then Chicago, for weeks this was the plan, so my friend got a ticket for ALDS Game 2 in Houston and I got one for Game 1 in Chicago (meaning, series games 2 and 3), and I am flying from BWI (where I live) > HOU > MDW then back home to BWI. Easy right? Okay but what if the Sox overtake Houston for the 2 seed, which they suddenly are making look possible, then the game starts in Chicago. Fuck. This means I'm going to Game 1 in Chicago, then Game 4 (if there is a game 4) in Houston. Gotta get a whole different set of flights for that. BWI > MDW > HOU > BWI (and what if it's a series sweep? now I need to fly home from Chicago instead of Houston). So my account is sitting here with a bunch of confirmations so I am not booking expensive flights last minute and I'm gonna cancel half them as soon as I see the seeding. At least booking with points makes it easy to cancel flights but still. Oh and on top of that I absent-mindedly bought ALCS tickets lmao. That is a problem for next week I guess. Worst case scenario I can flip those, I guess.
  17. For me it's that he did something like this at every pro level, including MLB. He'd get promoted then be hitting like .400 or some silly numbers like that and it's like wow is this a fluke? Let's call him up and see. No. Wow. Is this a fluke? No. Let's call him up and see. Now here he is at the majors. Same thing. Next season people outside of this fanbase will be talking about him the way we talk about Acuna, Tatis, Vladdy Jr., Ohtani etc (yes I know Ohtani is in his own category)

    Sox playoff tickets on Sale Wed 2pm

    I had gotten confused about how the playoff tickets were being sold, was trying to hedge in case they overtook Houston for the 2 seed, long story short I ended up getting ALCS tickets instead of ALDS because I'm a dumbass. I ran out of time for the ALDS tickets lol whoops. At least there was StubHub

    Today is Clinch Day… Date Yourself

    I was 26 and had just recently gotten out of the military, been married for 2 years and had a toddler. Now that toddler is a freshman in high school, still married, I got a much bigger house.

    The demise of the 2021 White Sox

    These games ultimately don't matter that much in the big picture (and LaRussa certainly seems to think so too judging from his managing patterns) but it doesn't mean this team is any less frustrating to watch blow games they should be capable of winning easily

    Given our current roster construction, can we do worse than Cesar Hernandez? Dude is awful
