    NFL Rant

    BTW. I don't believe that Kraft accepted any public funds for the stadium - paid for it himself. Quote "Gillette Stadium is the only privately-financed NFL stadium with 100 percent of the facility, land and parking costs paid for privately and 100 percent of the infrastructure costs reimbursed to the public by the stadium."
  2. Not an asterisk, but a big glob of Vaseline on the hat would be funny
  3. End last verse of White Rabbit...... When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead And the white knight is talking backwards And the red queen's off with her head Remember what the dormouse said Feed your head, feed your head

  5. Or, in the words of the immortal Buddy Guy: "Don't let the doorknob hit you where my dog should have bit you"
  6. Wasn't trying to "break news" so to speak...just showing data that backs up what most of us (umpires union excluded) think
  7. I found this to be any interesting read: ------------------------------------ Boston University professor Mark T. Williams and his team of graduate students recently completed a study that examined the accuracy of MLB umpires on ball/strike calls from 2008 through 2018. What they found: The results showed that younger umpires have performed far better than their older counterparts. Pretty alarming when you consider that more than half of the 76 full-time umps this season are 55 or older. By the numbers: The top five performers averaged 32.8 years of age with a bad call rate of 8.36%. The bottom five performers averaged 57.4 years of age with a bad call rate of 14.06%. This is concerning: Last season, Ted Barrett, 54, ranked dead last with a bad call rate of 13.8%. Yes, the same Ted Barrett who served as crew chief for the World Series.
  8. American history whether you live in New England or not. The first shots fired at Lexington and Concord - the begining of the American Revolution. The Redcoats marched from Charleston (Boston Harbor area) to Concord (about 15-16 miles) to confiscate an alleged cache of weapons from a farm house. Along the way there was a small battle in Lexington (a few shots hear and there). The upon arriving at the farm in Concord the Redcoats waited until orders were given to attack - before they got a chance they were ambushed and they were actually chased, and shot at, all the way back to Charleston by the local town militias (the MinuteMen). A long day if you were wearing red coat. Another trivia note: Paul Revere never announced that the British are coming during his ride the night before. He said the Redcoats are coming...at the time everyone in the US was British, so saying the British are coming make no sense.
  9. Since the O's are once again playing on Patriot's Day, let's see if OHers were paying attention during history class all those years ago. So, Patriot's Day is actually on April 19th (observed on a Monday) .... without looking it up what was the event that is commemorated on OPatriot's Day?
