  1. 2018 Caps Stanely Cup ????

    o I don't think that it's in their heads ........ I just thing that it's psychological. o

    o 59-0. o

  4. o In early December, the Bulls had an overall record of 3-20 ........ on pace for 11-71 overall, which would be one of the worst records ever in the history of the NBA. Since then, they have gone 14-7 over a 21-game span ........ a .667 winning percentage, and looking like a completely different team than the one that started the season at 3-20. It is no coincidence that the Bulls' awful 3-20 start to the season was without the injured Nikola Mirotic, who returned to the team in the first game of their current 14-7, 21-game run. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Bullets' 2012-13 season, before and after the return of John Wall. The Bullets started that season at 4-28. After winning a game to go 5-28, John Wall returned. They proceeded to go 25-19 over their next 44 games after that 4-28 start before dropping the final 6 games of the season. o
  5. o It had happened 3 times before that 1979 World Series. The Tigers came back from being down 3 games to 1 to beat the Cardinals in 1968, the Yankees denied the Milwaukee Braves of winning back-to-back World Series 10 years earlier by coming back from a 3 games to 1 deficit in 1958, and the Pirates denied the original Washington Senators (now the Minnesota Twins) of winning back-to-back World Series by coming back from a 3 games to 1 deficit in 1925. o
  6. o I did cry. I had just turned 14-years old two weeks earlier, and it was the last time that I cried tears of sadness over a sporting event. Also, if you recall, Dave Parker made that play even more excruciating than it wound up being because he stumbled just before he got to the ball. It looked like it might drop in because of it (Parker's stumble), but he recovered just in time to make the catch. o
  7. Luke's 50!

    o When I first read the title of the thread, my reaction was "Luke Scott IS NOT 50 ....... he's not even 40 yet." But if I had read it more carefully, I would have noticed that you put the apostrophe after the "s", not before. o
  8. 2017-18 Bullets/Wizards Thread

    o A second loss to the Bucks in the last 9 days, a team in which the Bullets are trying to stave off in the Eastern Conference standings. At least they shot well from the free-throw line, an area in which they have struggled with throughout the season. 25-for-31, good for 80.6%. MILWAUKEE BUCKS lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll - l104 WASHINGTON BULLETS llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. - ll95 o
  9. Dolores O'Riordan Died

    o The member of the Cranberries was 46 years-old. Cranberries Singer Dolores O'Riordan Dead at 46 (By Jill Lawless of the Associated Press) https://www.yahoo.com/music/cranberries-singer-dolores-oriordan-dead-46-171801922.html o
  10. o #29 October 17, 1978: ) Exactly one year prior to the Pirates' Game 7 win over the Orioles, Inez Genevieve Colon, a lifelong Yankee fan, sees her 13 year-old son Patrick literally crying as he watches the Yankees win their 2nd consecutive World Series over the Dodgers. She tells him that the following season she will drop her beloved Yankees like a hot potato and not only convert to being a Baltimore Orioles fan, but she also PROMISES HIM that they will win the World Series in 1979. The Orioles, who had not been to the World Series since 1971, fall just one game short. o
  11. o My cousins from West Springfield, VA (Yankee fans) said that the two players on the Orioles from the late-60's through the mid-70's that drove them the most crazy were Brooks Robinson in clutch-hitting situations, and Mike Cuellar (ALWAYS.) o
  12. o And Andre Dawson, who won the MVL for the last-place Chicago Cubs in 1987. Dawson is perhaps the most-remembered member of the "Collusion Club" of free-agent players who were collectively cold-shouldered by the MLB owners throughout both leagues between 1985 and 1987. Dawson essentially went to the Cubs with his hat in his hand, offering to sign a blank check to play for them because he wanted to get out of Montreal due to his sensitive knees playing on Olympic Stadium's artificial turf. He told the Cubs that he would play for them in 1987 for whatever amount they were willing to pay him. The Cubs offered the ridiculously low one-year salary of $500,000 (Dawson's annual value at that time was close to $2 Million), and Dawson signed. He wound up getting the last laugh though, as he had the best season of his career in 1987 and subsequently signed a 5-year extension for almost $14 Million (which made him one of the highest-paid players in the game at the time.) o
  13. o Case Keenum and the Vikings had a miraculous win in a divisional playoff game of their own, on a 61-yard touchdown pass with only 10 seconds left to play in the game. What a game ........ and how sweet it is for the Vikings and their fans, who not only lost 4 Super Bowls between the 1969 and 1976 seasons, but have also endured countless heartreaks on multiple occasions since then ........ until today. o
  14. o The Steelers actually did score a TD right before the half. After that Strip-6 that you alluded to, the Steelers scored a touchdown in the final seconds of the first half, then got get the ball back to start the 3rd quarter and scored another touchdown to cut the 28-7 deficit to 28-21. At that point, the Steelers had lots of momentum after looking like they had been dead in the water after that Strip-6 had made it 28-7. I think that there were numerous key plays in which the Steelers failed, one of which was the one that you pointed to which gace the Jaguars an extra 7 points. There was a huge play in late in the 1st quarter (when the score was 14-0) when the Steelers had the ball deep in Jaguars territory with a 4th and 1, and instead of going with a QB sneak by the 6'5" Roethlisberger they instead ran the ball to the outside (which allowed the Jaguars' defense to penetrate) and were thrown for a 4 and-a-half yard loss. And on yet another very key 4th down and 1 in the 3rd quarter with the Steelers in Jaguars territory (down by a score of 28-21), they again eschewed a QB sneak by Roethlisberger and threw an incomplete pass downfield. The Steelers gave away 14 points early in the game (on an interception deep in their own territory when the score was 7-0, and on the Strip-6 that you mentioned), plus they had several situations as the game wore on in which they had some pretty horrible play-calling. The Steelers were such an overwhelming favorite to win this game that the only way that the Jaguars were going to win was if the Steelers fell into a big hole early AND if the Steelers screwed up on numerous other occasions in their attempt at a comeback from that big hole ........ and unfortunately for them, that is precisely at happened. o
