Let's talk Wimter Olympics!
What sports are You here for? Do you like the raw power of speed skating, the majestic ski jump?
Are you in it for the Russian hotties (poor Russians) the Japanese cuties, or the Nordic specimens?

I've been going hard on figure skating and speed skating, but I can't wait to get on some ski/snowboard cross, and curling.

What's the difference between alpine skiing and freestyle skiing?

Did anyone see the Japanese kid land on the lip of the snowboard half pipe? He's OK now, but it looked pretty brutal live. I thought he hit his head/neck, but it was apparently just a hip injury.

It's also easy to broadcast, both logistically (it's all indoors and has built in breaks for commercials) and in the ability to tell stories about the backgrounds of the skaters. Plus, there's all that drama waiting for the score to drop. It's not like other sports where you gotta add/average multiple runs to figure out who is winning, or wait over an hour to watch an entire race. The 4 minute bursts of action broken up by other stuff is a normal TV cadence, really.

Curling is just a mix of billiards and bocce. Or a shuffleboard variation on ice.

I guess the Patriots offered him more job security and stability for his family and wouldn't have to move. I know Willie McGinest denied that McDaniels' decision was influenced by a potential future head coach position but who the hell knows. And now Frank Reich is the Colts' new coach, maybe he can help Andrew Luck as a former QB and backup to a Hall of Fame QB like Jim Kelly.

I'm beginning to think the only thing that's going to help Luck at this point is a trip to Germany and some stem cells injected into his spine.

>Sacramento sounds like a hideous place for an MLS team

Sacramento Republic already has cultivated a massive fanbase with one of the highest attendances in the USL and they have the ownership as well as a new stadium approved and ready to be built. They’re more than ready to join MLS.

It’s a tossup between Cincinnati and Nashville but you’re right that if Columbus goes, Cincinnati is in especially given FC Cincinnati already setting records in the USL. Nashville will go in but I can’t see it being this round unless Cincinnati’s new stadium plan falls through.

Detroit unfortunately I can’t see going in and without a soccer specific stadium but i guess that doesn’t matter if the Lions’ ownership is involved. Plus Detroit City for an NPSL team has become the city’s soccer team being built from the ground up.

And we still don’t know what’s going on with Miami now that there’s new owners involved.

Hope the Miami franchise works out. Was listening to the DLS the other day and I didn't realize they've had so much trouble finding the right area for their stadium. As it stands now they might have to build it in a crappy suburb of Miami if they can't find a better area. It's gonna be wild seeing Messi play there in a few years, though.

They're experiencing the same problems that the DC United were when they were trying to find a place to build their new stadium. Fortunately, they were able to build one in an underdeveloped neighborhood like Buzzard Point and right near Nationals Park that has helped to revitalize Navy Yard. Problem is that Miami's stadium location in Overtown is further from a metro station with no parking and neighborhood opposition.

I guess, but I don't think it's that easy to game the system via an expansion draft. I think it's more of a coincidence that Vegas managed to snag some genuinely talented players that for whatever reason just didn't fit in their former team's plans this season rather than Mean Ol' Bettman forced teams to give up the rights to talented players they actually wanted to keep.

Edgar is definitely getting in next year. Next year will be healdined by Haladay and Rivera, but Martinez will be the third since he already had something like 70.4% this year. Other than those three, I don't see Mussina making the leap to be the 4th player since 4 player inductions are so rare. I'm interested to see what kind of result Helton gets in his first year since I imagine him playing at Coors will be held against him like it did for Larry Walker. I guess Bonds and Clemons will gain some more next year but I really doubt they get in next year. I'll laugh if Bonds, Clemons, and Pettite all get in on the same year so everyone can crack jokes about steroids and HGH for all three.

That's the way it works with the baseball HOF voters. They want a guy to wait because he's known as "just" a DH. They will eventually let him through their gates though.

Very interesting. Starting in January makes me wonder if this shitty weather will affect play, especially if they only have one or two cold weather teams in their initial 8 (NYC and Chicago?). It might give NFL transplants a leg-up, as well, if they can jump from the NFL on an expiring deal straight into the XFL season if their team doesn't make the NFL playoffs. This might work better for XFL players trying to get into or back into the NFL, too, since the season will end and they'll still have time to rest up for training camp and the NFL Preseason instead of if the XFL season ran during the summer and ended with the begin of the NFL Preseason (where XFL transplants would be at a serious disadvantage for missing training camps and would be tired down by the XFL season).

Anyways, might be cool. I'm guessing this is going to air on digital platforms like Vince's WWE Network along with someone like Amazon or Yahoo carrying games as well. It will also be interesting to see what successful innovations they can come up with, like the flyover cam that the NFL adopted from the original XFL.

Interesting take on who might broadcast XFL games. I had no idea Fox was even a prospect, but the writer states a good case for them. Plus with Disney buying up all of Fox's regional networks while excluding FS1 and FS2, coupled with UFC potentially jumping ship when their contract runs out, that leaves a dearth of content on FS1 & FS2. I still think XFL will go the all-digital route, and will be a litmus test of the NFL branching further into the digital realm, but if Fox is on the table then that will be very interesting.

He had the only trophy that mattered but threw it away to wankle co-eds while pretending to be going back to school after some other lame excuse
The fucked up thing is that he keeps pulling it off but also gets roadrashed 50 year old bar hussars so take that with a salt mill
His offense is offensive
He is friends with Sark who everybody knows pours his shit for two
What even happened to his "healthy" environment in that one lawless swamp that he traded for the other lawless but this time the one with more guns?
