  1. "Ray, people will come, Ray. They’ll come to Iowa... San Diego, er... L.A... for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn up your driveway, not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past an actual Clippers future."...
  2. Jazz don't have the DNA to win the NBA title. What a major gag job they've had in the second half. And who is this Mann guy for the Clips? Before tonight, I've never heard of the guy...
  3. No one said that the title is all that matters. But before this proposal, SJSU had exactly "zero" chance of doing anything in the playoffs. With this latest development, we might have only moved the needle a scant amount, but it's enough to get us across the proverbial "line in the sand" (the one that formerly all but excluded us from competing in the first place). And try telling the kids that play that they shouldn't be able to complete for the highest level of championship. Or that they should never aspire to anything beyond a 4th tier Bowl game. And Athletic Departments? Sure, let's
  4. So you'd rather have no hope at all? Being realistic is fine and dandy, but I'm of the belief that a really good G5 entrant, if the seeding is favorable (random, I know), could make it to at least a National Semi-Final. And sooner than you think...
  5. My (admittedly quick) takeaway from all of this is that a 12 team playoff arrangement is good for the MWC and the G5, in general. On the flip side, I could also see scheduling for G5's becoming more difficult. Those teams below the 1st (and perhaps 2nd tier) of the overall college football hierarchy will likely try to schedule up, which ultimately may mean fewer P5 games available for the G5's...
  6. Floyd got paid good dough to dance (and not hurt the schlep) for all those rounds...
  7. Much anticipation in waiting for the "insider" Boise spin-doctors here...
  8. Rahm shot himself in the foot by not vaccinating sooner, but this is a tough one. But for the Covid-positive test, clearly, Cantlay and Morikawa were playing for second yesterday. I don't know Patrick's finances, but I think I would've liked him offering to dole out half of his winnings to a charity of Rahm's choice...
  9. Symbolic that a fan with the word "Judge" on his back is showing the Twice-Impeached-Orange-Shit-stain acolyte the (double) bird here. After all, this is effectively how every U.S. Court Judge reacted (ruled) when faced with the pathological liar's attorneys' Kindergarten level legal arguments over a period of a few months earlier this year...
  10. I just wanna know which island in the Caribbean that Mug is now buying, what with his windfall Board sale proceeds...
  11. You're kind of living in the past. Jury sequestering is dying out - even in high profile cases. There are a lot of issues articulated in just this one 2017 article (Bill Cosby trial). https://www.thecut.com/2017/06/sequestered-jury-psychological-toll-cosby-trial.html Think of the "withdrawals" a sequestered juror has to go through nowadays. Not only with family, but with all social media and, especially, their smartphone. Sounds silly, but you try going 3, 4, 5 weeks without that (let alone being around family). Good luck with that one. Like it or not, we ALL probably have pr
  12. JFC, I’m so tired of reading about this stuff. We are a phucked-up “free” society, to say the least...
  13. The fentanyl argument was really shredded today, too. Tobin said you go into a coma if you OD on that. However, he said in no uncertain terms that Floyd did NOT go into a coma...
  14. Yes there is. Fair enough...
  15. Yeah. Nelson was choking in his cross, both figuratively and literally. Trying to get Tobin to stipulate that the circumstances could change by the millisecond was sort of a “Captain Obvious” statement - you know, about life in general. I mean, I can’t recall specifics, but Tobin shut him down on more than one occasion...
  16. Assuming too much? Hardly. Tobin made a lot of scientific assertions, all of which appeared to be well-established. I think the prosecution was wise to not bury the jury in minutia in that regard, but if push comes to shove, I have no doubt that his widely-held positions can be further established, if necessary. I mean, the defense sort of shit the bed in its cross examination of him. Just watch/listen to it. They made no headway against his testimony whatsoever... IMO, that doesn’t bode well for their own “experts” down the road because, again, Tobin came across as both honest and ve
  17. They were indeed shot to hell. For those commenting here and that didn’t actually listen today, IMO, you really missed out on some of the most compelling testimony you could ever expect to hear. I mean, I learned a lot today on the subject of breathing and didn’t even “want to” you know? it was nevertheless pretty enlightening... Although the circumstances surrounding the need for said testimony is the absolute shits of the world (what Floyd had to endure was sheer torture, plain and simple), I find it hard to believe there will be enough to refute all that was said by Tobin today.
  18. Just sharpening the pitchfork...
  19. I don’t think that will override Chauvins personal responsibility in the Floyd circumstance. He can be the most trained cop in the world, but if his actions are deemed to have caused Floyd’s death - even without intent to kill - he’s toast. When it comes to the other (defense) experts, all I can say is that they had better be extraordinary (for Chauvin’s sake). The prosecution got out of the gate in tremendously important aspects of the medical/cause of death questions today. A 10 out of 10, many trial experts are saying. Yes, it only takes one to have doubts, but I’m telling you both the
  20. Training videos don’t matter. Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s neck 3 minutes after a preeminent expert said that he died (stopped breathing). Tobin said the drugs were irrelevant and didn’t change his breathing patterns, among other things. Also, that a healthy person would’ve died under the same circumstances. Honestly, I can’t fathom all of that will play well with any jury member...
  21. I’ve listened to quite a bit of the testimony so far. The pulmonary doctor’s testimony today (Tobin) was flat out devastating to the defense. That dude reeeeaaalllyyy knew his shet, but perhaps most importantly, spoke in layman’s terms that the jury could readily understand. Reduced it to lungs and breathing in a simplistic, yet still highly technical way. The use of (simple) graphics was exceptionally well done, too. He even called Floyd’s death (last breath) within a few seconds IOC the timeline (the last extension of his leg). This occurred more than three (3!) minutes before Chauvin eve
  22. Stone looks like someone who would've been right at home in the S.S. back during WWII. Gaetz? A (far) wayward version of Donny Osmond. Both should rot in jail, but, unfortunately, the Eternally Corrupt Twice Impeached Orange Shit Stain has already bailed Stone out...
  23. The paper and witness trails will lead to very, very bad things for Gaetz. Whatta total dumbfvck...
  24. You sort of have to look at it this way: You DO know that Covid -19 can either make you very sick or even kill you. On the flip side, you do NOT know that the vaccine can either make you very sick or kill you. Up until this point in time, I like the latter scenario much better than the former...
