    Yeah that race sucked. Come back and get em in a few weeks. Thank god Max is okay. I believe the impact was measured at 56 Gs

    Imagine if Hard Knocks could even get close to showing the true authenticity DTS does... And that's with some storylines being overly embelished. Also, Chicago has been in the running to host races a few years ago but refused to spend as much as other cities. At the time I believe there was a $31.1 million minimum to host a race and Chicago refused to match that so F1 said "see ya". I also believe the track was going to involve LSD and through soldier field and Adler in some capacity. However, Chicago has hosted F1 festivals in the past few years here and there. When it comes to barrier to entry, F1 is probably the toughest to get into of any sport because realistically there is only 20 seats. Maybe 6 (probably 4) of which can compete for a win every weekend. This is why Red Bull has been in the perfect position this year outside of having their best car since 2013. Checo was out of a seat, and also an amazing driver. So the only way he was getting a spot was being willing to play second fiddle and be the best teammate he can be for Max. It's been absolutely perfect.

    As an F1 die-hard for many years I can say most people like me have been very happy with the success of DTS and it's promotion of the sport and introduction of new fans. I've gone from taking shit from friends to people asking me questions and wanting to talk about the races or why certain things happened the way they did. DTS does have it's moments where as someone who is very in depth on this stuff like me goes "why the hell are they making this out to be something it's not?", example: the Sainz/Norris "feud" in 2020. Pretty pumped how much popularity its gaining in the USA and hopefully in the next 10 years Chicago gets a street race or something like that. Honestly Miami f'd up by not making theirs a street track but I get logistically it makes sense to build it around Hard Rock stadium.
  4. Last night was very enjoyable to watch. Future of this program is very bright. Especially if Cook returns. Sounds like Harvey is turning heads in practice too. A lot to look forward to.

    You're not alone. Favre was my favorite player growing up. We've had Bears season tickets my whole life.

    I am quite excited. Nice to have some energy come back into the program. A lot of the fan base should be re-energized by this.

    Meanwhile, this Ohio State team has been so hit or miss this year and frustrating to watch. I thought Keyshawn Woods was going to bring so much to the table this year but has a habit of dribbling himself to a corner in close games. This team turns the ball over way too much. Tough remaining schedule, have to win both against Northwestern, and steal at least 2 of the 5 remaining against ranked B1G teams. Sadly, just not sure if they can do it. Losing Potter right before the season killed our depth and the second KWesson gets in foul trouble we get in trouble. I had very low expectations coming into this year so a tourney bid would be a success but I just don't see it with last night's loss. Congrats to you Illini guys though, you are playing great basketball, and it's nice to see it looking like the program is making the turn.

    I'm actually a recruiter in Accounting and Finance in the Chicago area. I'll be honest that we do mostly work on contract and contract to hire positions but if you're open on opportunity it might be worth a talk. We do occasionally see Direct Placement roles as well too. Feel free to shoot me a DM.

    Still pissed the USA blew the opportunity and missed it. However, I will watch as many games as I possibly can. Die Mannschaft!

    Sports Media discussion

    I've recently started watching "Good Morning Football" on NFL network in the morning before I leave for work and I really enjoy it. I feel like "Get Up" tries to mimic their model but just does it in a way that is nowhere near as appealing. Completely agree on the no chemistry thing as well. I also notice when I've watched it, somebody will be talking, and then they will pop up a picture in picture of one of the other people as if they will have a reaction but half the time it doesn't even look like they're paying attention.

    2018 Travel Thread

    Seattle is awesome. I was there for 3 nights last July. Def go to Mt Rainier. I spent a day hiking out there and it was absolutely gorgeous. While i was in Seattle it was sunny and 70-80 every day so that helped. It was about 55 degrees up in the mountains during my hike. Do a ferry boat to Bainbridge island and walk around and look at the houses there. Obviously there is tons of fun stuff in downtown Seattle as well and awesome food. One of my favorite things was the observatory deck at the "Smith Tower" which is the oldest skyscraper in Seattle. You pay $20 to take the elevator to the top and there is a really nice cocktail bar/restaurant up there with tons of history and views in every direction. Well worth the money.
  12. Just got home from New Orleans. As a passive wrestling fan I'd like to say how incredible of an experience it was. While it was a very long show, I had such a great time and can't recommend going enough. Ended up grabbing tickets last second to RAW on Monday as well and the environment was so much fun. Also, with Nola being my favorite place in the world, I can't think of a better place to have Wrestlemania. That town is just perfect for it and it was so much fun to be there while all the wrestling tourist were in town for it. Wish they could have it there every year.
  13. I also will be at Wrestlemania. Going with two buddies who love Wrestling and I'm more of a passive fan. Mostly going out of my love for New Orleans, but I am super pumped.

    Go Dawgs. Limping in to say the least. Really don't like our odds to have to probably beat Missouri State and Alize a 3rd time.

    QUOTE (Brian @ Feb 19, 2018 -> 11:06 AM) I would be fine with just taking the top 16 teams. Conferences be damned Bill Simmons has talked about this multiple times as an idea. Also, with the idea of the bottom 14 teams playing a round robin tourney to get the 15/16 seeds. Which would be awesome.
