    The 2015 Cavs would have won the title if Kyrie hadn't gotten hurt, let alone Love. ALSO, that was in no ****ing way a Charge by LeBron in 2018 Game one, and there's no ****ing way it should have ever been reversed by replay.

    *cough* @LloydChristmas *cough* - Ted Ginn Jr. getting hurt celebrating changed the entire National Championship Game

    Landon Donovan would have scored against Belgium if he'd been on the roster instead of Chris Wondolowski, who skied the game winner

    even if he ends up with fewer slams than nadal or djokovic, roger federer is the greatest tennis player of all time.

    also the baseball roofs thing.

    If NASCAR hadn’t screwed up the point system in 2004 and never fixed it, Jeff Gordon would have at least 7 titles.

    This is a local one but the Pohlads are multi billionaires and they absolutely could have afforded both Joe Mauers contract and fielding a winning baseball team, they just chose not to.

    -Yeah, game 6 of the '02 WCF was badly officiated to say the least, but the Kings deserve no sympathy, for they should have won that series in 5. Even if you discount that, what was the Lakers reward? Game 7 in that cauldron in Sacramento... Kings had the clear advantage still, and ****ed it up.


    -The 2-minute warning in the NFL is useless; can't stand it.


    -People gave Shaq & Kobe way too much slack in breaking up, in hindsight, because I feel it discounts what they helped to achieve: a goddamn three-peat! Still hasn't been done in the NBA since.


    -Really hate the runner automatically on 2nd in the 10th inning that began in baseball last year. So there's a few 15+ inning games each season... boo ****ing hoo.

    If Alex Smith hadn't suffered that horrific leg injury in 2018, Washington would have won the NFC East and gone to the playoffs instead of the Cowgirls.

    Between the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL, the NFL is a better home viewing experience than actually going to the game.

    Still the WORST call in the history of pro sports. Totally robbed the Raiders and handed that game to Pats. That bad call launched the cheesiest dynasty ever. I like Brady - hes a good guy and all but the Patriots organization, not so much.

    I always found it weird that the Ref had that "tuck rule" in his back pocket. I watched decades of football before that game and I've never heard that call before. IIRC, the players, coaches and broadcasters never heard of that rule before either.


    PG - Magic (can play any position)
    SG - Michael Jordan (probably could have a more outstanding individual college career if Dean Smith had less of a team concept)
    SF - Larry Bird (Legend)
    PF - Christian Laettner (ESPN's 30 for 30, I hate Christian Laettner was great)
    C - Lou Alcindor (I can't think off the top of my head of any center or arguably any basketball player in general having a better college career, let alone the options available on the list above)

    I posted Lasha above. His goal is a 500 kg total. Here he does 225 snatch with the ease that everyone knew he could. He actually does not stick the 270 C&J attempt as he never stops stepping. So it's not quite a 495 total.

    Today is the NFL draft and therefore I'm reminded of the Kevin Costner movie, Draft Day.



    The only thing realistic about this film is the Cleveland Browns having the number draft pick. The draft day itself is so looney, it should be a cartoon with Kevin Costner being Bugs Bunny and the other GMs being Daffy Duck.

    It's a bit weird not having Cleveland at or near the top of the draft order this year.
