  1. Yeah I'm certainly not sure. Just seems like I remember having heard that. I'm sure someone here will know ...
  2. ...and doesn't the NCAA make most or all of its money from the bids from the schools, & not the actual gate? I was thinking the schools get most or all of the gate. Am I misremembering?
  3. UT property isn't subject to Austin Fire code regs, as it's state property. I'm guessing it's the same way for the stadiums, crowds, etc but who knows ...
  4. Re: Trevor Bauer, here's a good read for anyone interested... A look at Trevor Bauer's history of discussing foreign substances on baseballs and increasing spin rate https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/a-look-at-trevor-bauers-history-of-discussing-foreign-substances-on-baseballs-and-increasing-spin-rate/
  5. Yep. And I wanna talk about today's HR a little more. They raised the monster prior to this year, right? Was it to improve the hitter's background? Anyway, it mighta been hard to tell on tv, but it hit about a foot or so from the top. Woulda cleared the old monster easily, and it was hit into a pretty stiff wind. I can't remember ever seeing a shot like that into the wind at the Disch. And just like the 471 footer the other night, he was reaching for it and didn't really look like he got all of it. Kid's just phenomenally strong.
  6. Absolutely. I feel privileged to get to watch the guy.

    Canada, Brazil. Mexico and COTA aren't locks, either.
  9. I actually believe that. Neither the Tuesday bomb or the one tonight looked like he really got all of em.
  10. That backup play behind third by Faltine. Wow. Always in the right place. Baseball IQ is off the charts, and phenomenal range & arm.
  11. Luhnow & Tavo Hellmund (COTA founder) started a SPAC to invest in sports businesses. Seems like they have some good people on board. R.C Buford, etc. https://www.sportico.com/business/finance/2021/jeff-luhnow-tavo-hellmund-sports-spac-1234621548/
  12. Vieques was amazing pre-hurricane. Not so much, now. Vieques was pretty much levelled by the storm. The W closed after the storm and will not reopen. Last I heard, from a Puerto Rican who's been back to PR a few times since, Vieques was down to just one cop living on the island, and is a haven for criminal activity. He said it's a routine stop for drug trafficking boats, for refueling, changing boats, etc, because they know there's basically no law there. Sucks.
