  1. >a beloved coach >the Scioscias ...I'm confused.
  2. Vikings are a people who don't really exist any more (you could make the case that they still exist in Iceland, but...that's not a strong argument), which makes it a lot less odd feeling. Fighting Irish IS fucking weird, to the point where I assumed it was a nickname before I googled it right now. Browns, technically, is closest to the 'creature' category. Overall though, you're right; there WILL be exceptions to this. An exception or two over the entirety of the sports world doesn't suddenly make something not unusual though, you know? My point is that everything aside, its a really odd
  3. Is...is the name not a reference to the country of India?
  4. I guess - but most of those are in line with typical team names that you see around (typically named after a creature of some kind, or a group of people - warriors, kings, trolley dodgers). Its very unusual to name a team after an ethnic group or a country or something like that - unless you're talking about national teams. The closest off the top of my head is something like the Yankees - but even then, its not like its "The Americans," its more of a nickname that has associations with an older era. Except the Padres. That name IS fucking weird, cheering for the dads. It technically fits t
  5. TBH, the name is just fucking weird, when you think about it. Any controversy and argument aside - it would be really weird to have a team called "The Mexicans" or "The French" or "The Blacks" or something, you know?
  6. Analysis be damned, I LOVE Fletcher batting first. He's a pain in the ass to get out, and great at getting on base. By the end of that at bat, the pitcher likely has thrown more pitches than they want to, has a man on, and now has to face Trout (and Rendon and Ohtani). It seems like it must be just mentally exhausting.
  7. Its been -2 days of the season so far and I'm already disappointed...
  8. Remember in 2018 when he sucked in spring training and a bunch of journalists decided he could never cut it in the majors? That was funny.
  9. We've gotta get more length out of Heaney. He needs to step up and be our ace - if our "best pitcher" can only go for 5 innings, our relief is gonna be toast by ASB. #seasonover
  10. Sounds like Liga MX is shutting down, so that list is getting a bit shorter.
  11. Last time I was in Vegas, I put some money down on who wins the NBA playoffs...curious how that works now....
  12. Red Sox playing 15th dimensional connect 4: trade Mookie to the Dodgers and let them eat the rest of his contract while no one plays baseball.
  13. MLS just got suspended this morning, joining the NBA. Over in Europe, La Liga and Serie A are also suspended (and Bundesliga will likely follow soon, as there has been at least one confirmed case in a lower league of German soccer; the NHL over here in the US likely will follow soon as well).. Its starting to look like baseball would stick out like a sore thumb if they DIDN'T suspend the season. Adding to that, we are having governments (including California's) starting to crack down on large gatherings, which means at BEST we are are going to have a lot of games in empty stadiums. IMO at
