Re: ESPN layoffs

ESPN used to be great to watch...SportsCenter used to be a good watch at any time of day...now, it's ridiculous. Only thing worth watching there = live games (and occassional 30 for 30)...take that away, and they're just another CSBSSN, NBCSN, etc. Take away the live games and I probably spend more ...

Re: Let's Talk Politics - Election 2016

Umm what would you call them? Regressive left is a pretty well accepted term for these types. I'm sure it is a pretty well accepted term on Fox News and other places of fake news. It started because liberal became a dirty word, so people on the left started calling themselves progressives and right...

Thought this was interesting.

Re: Rhody Baseball 2017 Season

If you look at the Rams baseball schedule, it shows attendance each game. URI easily has the lowest attendance record out of anyone they play. The bigger schools reach nearly 8 thousand while others get a few hundred which is still good. URI gets around 100 or less. Again I believe its a location i...
