I wanted to bump this thread a couple of months ago when Crystal Palace humiliated Arsenal 3-0, as in wanted to bump it immediately after the game, partly to gloat over how badly we destroyed you, but also to commiserate a little, because it was clear then that your chances of a 4th place trophy were over. However, I actually stopped to think that I'd be spoiling the match for you - that seeing the thread bumped you'd almost definitely suspect what had happened, so I decided to not bump the thread and let you experience the crushing defeat for yourself. So if you want to thank me for that, go ahead, I'm here.

Thank you for your consideration, briggm.

See I knew you'd appreciate this. Whichever team we support and whatever differences we might have, we don't spoil sporting outcomes because that's a rotten thing to do. I'm sorry LI spoiled that match for you that one time.

It was one of the worst things that ever happened to me.

If McConnell and Ryan don't impeach Trump when he pardons Kushner, we'll just have to close the republic.

Esoteric AllusionNate Cohn is saying Quist would need a miracle at this point to win. Betting markets have settled around a Gianforte win.

The bad takes are going to be really bad with this one.

Yes but something like 2/3 of votes were cast before the choke slam. That incident was never going to matter.

Esoteric AllusionMaggie Habberman is reporting that Trump told EU leaders that Germans are bad, very bad or "evil, very evil" depending on translation. The former is Trump-speak, so it's probably that. It was in relation to car imports.

This story has been updated. The english quote from Trump is this:

"The Germans are bad, very bad. See the millions of cars they are selling in the US. Terrible. We will stop this."

There are a lot of Republicans in Congress from states where German companies build cars.

This is true. But just remember that Trump is an idiot. A German brand, to him, means all their manufacturing happens in in Germany. That's super simplistic, and clearly that's not true. It's actually a good/depressing way to look at our current political landscape and the terrible decisions it has wrought: if something can be explained via Trump's idiocy, it probably doesn't extend beyond that idiocy.

I know. I just mean that this'll get moderated really fast after southern Congresspeople blister Reince's ear about it.

We should do that thing where the mayors bet something. We'll put up a beautiful Gibson guitar and some delicious Nashville hot chicken and you guys can put up, um ... a bucket of ingots and a salad with French fries? Your trash-ass city.?

Terrible, just awful.

I guess. Mostly it was just so flat. I never once felt any tension or concern for a character or any surprise.?

MeowLast weekend, I had a vegan cheese that was fantastic, and a vegan chili that was also fantastic. These things never happen, so you gotta tell people about it, you know?

I call two bullshits on this post. Vegan cheese. You go to hell.

BigwigA better and more interesting discussion (rather than table finish) is whether or not this is the end of Wenger.

Idk if I find that interesting. If ownership want to spend money, Arsenal will be a perennial top four challenger. If they don't, it doesn't really matter who the manager is.

See you in August, buddy.

I hate you. I hate you so much.

What's the deal with this??
Let me know the date of the League Cup draw.

Bigwig, Arsenal finished 5th for the first time in 20 years.

It's good to be positive.

I hate you so much.

Esoteric AllusionFox News had reporters who witnessed it. They're referred to on the audio.

Here's the description they gave:

At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the man, as he moved on top the reporter and began yelling something to the effect of "I'm sick and tired of this!"

Jacobs scrambled to his knees and said something about his glasses being broken. He asked Faith, Keith and myself for our names. In shock, we did not answer. He then said he wanted the police called and went to leave. Gianforte looked at the three of us and repeatedly apologized. At that point, I told him and Scanlon, who was now present, that we needed a moment. The men then left.

To be clear, at no point did any of us who witnessed this assault see Jacobs show any form of physical aggression toward Gianforte, who left the area after giving statements to local sheriff's deputies.

I'm not watching Fox News right now, but those commenting on it have noted that they have not covered the story despite having reporters who witnessed it available.


Sounds like maybe some form of chokeslam.

Infinitus CorsairBigwig, your garbage-ass Penguins can't even win their series so I can start properly trash-talking you.

It might already be over if the NHL wasn't such a fucking piece of shit league.

Sounds like something a Pittsburgher would say. Remember when my Giants beat the dick off your Pirates en route to the 2014 championship?
