    I think Juve just wants to get his salary off of the books.

    Well to be fair there is a big debate whether it's better to be a bench player in a better league or getting starter's minutes with another team or in another league. And to my point - more than half of these guys aren't even starters for their club teams (Turner, Musah, Reyna, Pepi, Ream - who is going to MLS, and Weah). I think our expectations are skewed because we've always had lesser talented teams that "punched above their weight" through both effort and having a massive chip on their shoulders. These guys don't seem to have it and GGG only makes things worse.

    Our form is shit but I wouldn't lump the Slovenia result in there as it was both squads' "C" teams at best. Basically a glorified scrimmage.

    Yeah no point in rooting for the team to fail. No coaching change is going to occur until after the Copa.
  5. Astros’ 2022 free-agent disasterclass now sinking 2024 season These are the signings before Mike Brown was hired - Abreu, Montero, Pressly, and Brantley. Brantley is now out of the game and the other three have been terrible.
  6. If you read between the lines from that Brennan interview with Eisen it's clear the reason she was left off the team was NOT because she wasn't good enough to be on the team. It's because the veterans didn't want a bench warmer to get all the attention they thought should be going to them.
  7. Slight disagreement - she's famous because she single-handedly rewrote the record book while in college and is already setting records as a pro. There's never been a women's basketball player like her and she's electrifying to watch when she's on her game.
  8. I was watching a video on German reunification and the term the West used to describe East German officials was "politicized incompetence" - and this has been used to describe Trump's followers in government positions. In short, it means that loyalty to the political party (or to an individual) is more important than actually being able to do the job. East Germany was littered with useless idiots whose only qualification was loyalty to the East German state. The GOP is going down the same path and it will not end well for them or for constituents who put these clowns in power.

    Feeling really good about my prediction about not getting out of our Copa group.

    who is going to choke for England and miss the crucial PK?
  15. Guess this goes here: Williamson County now has more floodplains, study explains why New map overlays: https://wilcomaps.wilco.org/vertigisstudio/web/?app=d5a5b30e7e51447e8bd674eef03ee642 ETA map. Tan is current FEMA floodplain; blue is proposed. Spoilered for size:
  16. OB is basing their Vitello news off of a parody tweet. Geezus they are bad.
