New Lingua Franqa track very timely

sure wish i could have made homecoming when she performed. Her, Wesdaruler and company definitely laying it down for those who need to hear it. If this isn't allowed maybe it says something about a board I used to truly value. Love you all except for those that don't deserve it. [https://open.spotif...

Re: The Unraveling

I love Patterson and I appreciate his optimistic view of our grandparents but I can't help but think this is exactly what those folks would want. This belief that the so called greatest generation fought WW2 for the benefit of everyone is naive at best. Our grandparents generation was just as racist...

Re: MLB 2019

Well, Ricketts gonna Rickett it seems. As soon as someone says "I deeply regret", if that isn't followed by, "getting caught" you're words are instantly dismissed. Why this should come as some kind of shock is the hardest part to believe.

Re: How has Homecoming changed through the years?

Speaking only for myself, it's become an event that when I can't make it, the rest of the year feels off. The first couple years I went it was fun but just fun. The more that I went it became more than just a good time. It has the feel of to quote Mr Finn, a unified scene for those few days in Janua...

Okay I still don't understand how to post a pic here but long story short, fucking nerds ruining baseball with their graphs and pie charts. Severino has been shit since the break, the figurehead in the dugout needs to tell the geeksquad that's really in charge how to make baseball decisions.

Not sure if a podcast belongs in this thread but it's a music podcast so I'll put it here. Your Favorite Band Sucks is a comedy/critical review show.

While I'm happy with the Yankees winning tonight I'm not as optimistic about success vs Boston as some on the radio are. The last time these teams played in games that mattered to both teams, the Yanks got swept. Those last 3 games in Boston meant nothing to the Sox. I think the Yanks have a chance ...

Re: Books Thread

Lean On Pete is, imo his best work. I've thoroughly enjoyed every book he's written. His style and subject matter are just what I want in a book. The new one is good but not on the level of Lean On Pete or Northline. Also the Lean On Pete movie is supposed to finally be released April 6 or so.
