It's great drama, but Broadchurch is goddamned painful to watch this year.

At least one of you sonsofbitches needs to begrudgingly acknowledge my winning of the RT fantasy league.

Paris the GoatHow are we doing the draft order next year, again?

Moses is commish now, I'm not 100% positive but I believe it's top 6 are reverse as normal, but the bottom 6 are fighting it out in the consolation section, winner getting the first pick (so it's an anti-tanking measure).

I almost beat Booze in the RT league too. If I had put Mirotic in rather than Holmes Sunday I would have won. As it was, I was within 4 points at halftime of the last game but Gary Harris did nothing in the 2nd half and I lost closely on pts and Bl.

Yeah, and if I had bothered to put in a sub for Boogie I would have won 6-3. How about you stop pretending you could have won. Ozmatic or Wreck, yeah you would have beaten them, but my team is built to win playoff series. I beat Oz a few years ago 8-0-1 in the finals, I'm predicting 7-2 this time. Keep trying to win that consolation bracket, I'm going to have to lose one of Harden, Cousins or Gobert, who are all top-6 players.

PaulsonOh, shit balls, I forgot to set my lineup. Eh, I probably wasn't going to win anyways.?

I added up what you would have had for the week, and you would still have lost by the same 7-2 score. Sure, you might have been able to nick another point by making line-up changes and making it more respectable. If you kept the same line-ups, you would have lost FTM by two and assists by one. You didn't really have a chance at a 5th win in any category, the margins in the others would have been too big. Don't worry, if I get Oz in the finals I'll hammer him for you.

MosesKhris Middleton played in his first set of back-to-back games last night (33 and 30 minutes respectively). HurricaneKid, in our league, I have no excuses if my team fails. With pick-ups Middleton, Jusuf Nurkic, Yogi Farrell, and now Richaun Holmes, I believe this is the strongest my team has been all season long. Plus, Robert Covington has been playing out of his mind. See you in the finals.

In the real RT league, I have Khris Middleton, Jusuf Nurkic and Yogi Farrell, and you won't even make the playoffs. I'll see you in the finals, I'll get you a baseline spectator seat.

I had forgotten that we adopted Bigwig's suggestion. That was a fine idea. I need to balance my team out as I haven't had a decent SG behind Jimmy Butler all year.

EDIT: My bigs are actually really good, and I have shown up and played well against Wreckloose. I can live with that.

I'm going to be pounding #6 Hurricane Kid tonight, and he'll come out of it 1-8 or 2-7 depending on FG%, only certain to win turnovers. It's unfortunate you got Wreck this week as you might have been able to make a big jump toward playoff contention. Instead, you'll have to settle for the consolation rounds.

King Elessar 8I manage the conjunction junction.

It took a day, but someone finally made the joke. I was thinking I was too old. There were 10 or 11 posts, and none were conjunction-junction, and I thought I will diminish, and go into the West, and remain Galadriel.

wirthlingSo I'm not really watching TV

What, is it too expensive to get in your hospital? A world without wirthling watching TV makes no sense to me. Are we in the Upside-Down?

Logan will be a huge success, and was a fine movie, maybe an 8/10. Dark and violent, I can't go into the plot much without spoiling things. But these comparisons I'm reading to Children of Men? Fuck off with that. There are some basic similarities setting and plot-wise but aren't in the same class when it comes to film-making so don't get suckered in by that.

boozeThe Wiz are the far better team that Toronto? Absolutely not.

What was that?

You heard me.

Little IrishBroadchurch series 3 starts tonight.?

I just watched it, it was good. I just don't know if a bleak drama about a mentally shattered detective coming to grips with his demons while investigating a brutal sexual assault in an emotionally devastated Scottish town can continue to be more uplifting than Donald Trump's addresses to the media.?
Mar 1, 2017 5:49 AM
And now Trump with a possible large shift in immigration policy. My guess is it's just a ruse, but if true that he's going to let undocumented immigrants stay, I can just see Trump supporters' heads exploding.

The Wiz are the far better team that Toronto? Absolutely not. By the time the playoffs roll around, hopefully with Lowry back and Ibaka and Tucker meshing well, they are the only team that can even hope to challenge Cleveland in the East (and I still wouldn't like their odds).

So, "Gary from Chicago" had just gotten out of prison after serving over 20 years, 3 days before the Oscars. Mostly petty theft, but he got a massive sentence under the 3-strike rule. I read somewhere that he stole over $400 of perfume.

boozeThere's no way Cousins is moving. He told Kerr he was "beat up" and that's why he only got a two-minute cameo and not a bunch of minutes. Kawhi Leonard also told Kerr at the half that he didn't want to go back in.

Anthony Davis, 39 shots? I didn't see a stitch of the game, but that seems a bit obscene.

Woj just reported he was traded to New Orleans. Would be funny if we met in the finals and AD and Cousins were battling for stats.

I'm quite stunned by the deal, it makes absolutely no fucking sense at all. One of the best big men in the game for scraps.

boozeWhat, since when has Neum become the default travel guy for this forum? Was there any fucking purpose in my nearly 6 months in Patagonia? Do I need to be in Brazil now? I bet fucking Angelo is fielding alcohol questions.

Hey booze, I'm going to New Zealand. Any hot travel tips?

Well hey, the North Island isn't the better of the two but you get what you get. Are you leaving soon? The Wellington Fringe Fest is in March I think, people juggling chainsaws and shit. Near Rotorua you can raft the world's highest-commercially rafted waterfalls in the world, that shit was like 18 meters! I think ours was the only raft that didn't flip right the fuck over and throw everyone into the rapids. You can also see geysers and such in the area, if you like blowholes just suddenly going off. Basically anything considered "extreme" can be done in New Zealand at a cheaper cost than in the States. Want to bungy jump, or fling yourself off a cliff, or go into a bat-cave or something, New Zealand's your spot. Auckland's pretty shit, so just avoid it. You can smoke weed as much as you want, and Kiwi girls are pretty easy, and will find your accent to be exotic. Imagine it, you'll be exotic! People will ask you to say stuff, just to hear your accent! You'll say "It's 6 o'clock" and some pudgy girl will ask you to repeat it.

I don't know any of the games, or whether the retail value is over $600 as claimed, but you can get a big bundle of games with your payment all going to the ACLU, Medecins sans Frontieres, and the International Rescue Committee.
