QWHEN IS THE CURLING STARTING!!!

just love those swedish lady curlers- beautiful and they can keep house also!!!

Jimbo

I was wondering how many North Korean athletes will defect.

Big Baby

It's called Bobsleigh now?

Big Baby

Curling every night! Get your brooms ready. I need to "brush up" on the rules.

Big Baby

Woodcock were you in Port Charlotte? Seems like a growing community down there.

Big Baby

Wow IT a Laker.

Big Baby

Needs to bring that shooting % way up if he wants to stay that way.

Big Baby

Scratch Lebron off your FA list OC.

Big Baby

IT appears to be a journeyman NBA player at this stage. Didn't see it coming after he put up 30 a game for the C's last year. Maybe the hip is still bothering him. Clarkson and Nance are ok nothing great could possibly improve. They got a high first rounder and a chance to see if IT can be the player he was in Boston. Low risk trade on both sides.

Big Baby

So at the end of the day Cleveland got Clarkson, Nance, and Jae Crowder for Kyrie Irving. Ouch.

OC Dolphin

BB,

What the heck are you talking about?

Do you actually think they the Lakers did this to get and KEEP Thomas and Frye!?

Buddy, they have just created a $100M war chest by which to spend. Not only that, but they picked up a #1 pick!

Ball, Ingram, Randle, Kuzma. That’s three current starters, plus one that should be in Kuzma.

If anything, this trade has given James a real option for him going forward.

I’m sorry to see Clarkson and Nance Jr. go, but I think this positions the Lakers for a very quick rise.

Big Baby

Yeah if they view IT as a rental then that's possible.

OC Dolphin

You can’t have two ball-hogs together in one team. Either Irving or James had to go, so whatever the Cavs got in order to stop Irving from bitching is what it is.

Now James must consider whether it’s attractive enough for him to leave the Cavs and play in a market like SoCa, alongside a core of young, talented players with a point guard that will be feeding him the ball 99.9% of the time two inches from the basket.

OC Dolphin

IF!!!!????

Big Baby

You're still chasing a lot of better teams. They have a LONG way to go to to compete against teams like GS, Portland, Minnesota, Spurs.

Big Baby

Ball will be a waste. No place for a pass first point guard in today's league. Maybe when Bob cousy was playing.

OC Dolphin

The guy still gets his numbers, BB. He may be the exact PG James needs

OC Dolphin

I don’t know if you saw James interact with Ball when they first played together, but James was very encouraging towards the youngster. In a mentor sort of way. I think they would play great together.

Big Baby

Yeah he whispered in his ear "You're father is a jackass".

OC Dolphin

End of pass first with Cousy? What about Nash, Magic?

I’m not in agreement with such finite absolutes.

OC Dolphin

You won’t get an argument there

Big Baby

Nash and Magic could shoot so could John Stockton.

OC Dolphin

You’re not giving the kid enough credit.

Big Baby,

really good effort by UNC versus the blue devils last night. duke is loaded with talented players but they are all except for one freshmen, which doesn't help. kenny williams was unreal in the first half.

Big Baby

shadow Duke is set for the future with that young team and they just recruited more talent.

Plenty of UNC losses to follow. Duke is just one step ahead of cheater U always has been.

Fzb3346

I think Curling is the shit, I asked my wife to borrow the broom and slidy a " casuela " to me so I can swat the dirt in front of it...whomever invented the shit needs to be in some kind of hall of fame.

D Wade is back to the 305 !!!!!! Well its obvious he is not the same player but its a feel good story , from what I saw last night he is heavy, a bit out of shape and his timing was off with the new players but hey we only need him the last 2 minutes anyways...

Soon Ill start getting into my draft mode, I bet you guys can't wait eh?

Family news...We bought a house!!!! Its going to be a few 2-4 months before we move, we are going to fix some stuff first, take our time , nice area and right between our son and daughters home ( distance wise that is) the Mrs wanted to be near the grand kidos ... you guys know happy wife , happy life...can't wait, Im going to buy a nice reclyner so I can fall sleeep faster watching TV...hehe

I miss the 305 a bit specially the Cuban food but that's about it, like it here in Jax...but never will be a full Jag's fan...Dolphin's teal baby..

Jimbo

Just for FZB:

Mr. Woodcock

Awesome!

Balls of steel.

Reminds me of my shuch down the face of Dave's Run in Mammoth in 1983 to carry enough speed to make it to the saddle behind chair 3. I probably hit the highest speed ever recorded on snow skis by a Cuban in history on that historic run. About a third of the way down in a full tuck I hit some tracks left by a snow cat and flew 50 feet through the air. On the landing my back hit the back of my skis but I was able to recover my balance and at the same time snatch my balls which had floated out of my mouth and shoved them back in without falling and flying to the top of chair three without having to pole.

God I wish they'd had phone cameras back then.

Franz would have been proud of the Cuban Comet that day.

Big Baby,

much of thisnyear's blue devils will be opting for the NBA. UNC has experienced players and developing young talents. lukr miser seems like hi is in the running for conference player of the year; another monster game yesterday. to me the guy is kevin love.2, and i thought the world of kevin love when he was a bruin. luke maye may be one of the greatest walk-ons ever.

"DUKE HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE STEP AHEAD OF UNC"!!!

UNC has played for the title the past two seasons in which duke has left the tournament early. during all those years that dean smith's teams never finished worse than second in the always tough ACC, where were the blue devils? one team made it to the title game-the really great team of gminski, banks, bender, and spanarkel; others than that they were nowhere while maryland, virginia, and NC state twice, were national title contenders. what is the final four tally for each of the schools? UNC went back to back for the crown-losing to indiana and then winning that a game form the ages against georgetown. both had chances at UCLA in the wooden years, and came up short. i wouldn't say one school is better historically than the other. after UCLA and indiana, they are #s 3 and 4 in my book.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

final four appearances:

duke 16, UNC 20.

as stated, they have not always been a step ahead of UNC; in this category they are 4 steps behind.

Big Baby

Highest tournament winning percentage. More conference championships. I guess success can be measured in different ways.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

another tough game- notre dame- this time at home. the irish were unfortunate to lose to UNC in south bend. a victory tonight would do much for the tar heels' confidence. luke maye is, or should be, an all-American candidate. the guy is a really good ballplayer-and a walk-on at that!!

OC Dolphin

Interesting analysis on how NFL teams may try to copy the Eagles’ success.

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/how-teams-should-copy-the-super-bowl-champion-eagles-in-the-2018-nfl-draft/

OC Dolphin

Do not hold your breath thinking that the Dolphins and Cage will follow that approach. They prescribe to the little, single, durable scat-back, to the big beefy D-tackle, and clear running or passing QB play.

OC Dolphin

Have you guys seen the new Dolphins’ wallpaper on their website? It’s:

OC Dolphin

Aqua, and light aqua.

Big Baby

OC Drake is a big dude.

OC Dolphin

Bell, Blount, Ajayi, all 220+, big backs that gain lots of yards after contact. Drake is 211 and gets his primarily through quick cuts.

Even were he to qualify, Gase seems to like the single runner featured throughout the game and as receiver, as opposed to the Way Phili used their two backs, which is the point.

OC Dolphin

I like Drake, don’t get me wrong, but the way the Dolphins are currently configured, their philosophy, seems dated. Not a land-line, but a flip phone, and certainly not an iPhone 10.

Big Baby

Drake gained 800 plus yards from scrimmage in 6 games. Averages out to 2000 plus. Pair him with someone better than Damien Williams and they should be fine.

OC Dolphin

I agree with that, but I don’t get the feeling that Gase would pursue a two-back approach.

OC Dolphin

Heck, he had that with Ajayi.

Big Baby

He would I think he had a versatile mindset in Denver. Williams can't run between the tackles all that well consistently he probably knows this. Keeping Ajayi wasn't an option as he was blowing up with the coaching staff.

OC Dolphin

Worked out for Phili coaching, as somehow they got along with him just fine.

Big Baby

Wasn't going to work in Miami. Laying blame on him or Gase is moot.

Big Baby

Take the 4th round pick and draft a rb. QB's are what wins in the league. There have been only a handful of AFC QB's playing in the Superbowl the last 15 years. I think it's Brady. Roethlisberger, Manning and Flacco.

Big Baby

More than 15 years maybe since 2000.

Big Baby

Surprised you aren't roasting me about that Celtics debacle yesterday. I think they are tired playing on the west Coast with some back to backs in there. Not sure Cleveland is all of a sudden the team to beat again we will see. Toronto is now in first place. I could see the Celtics winning a few rounds or getting beat early when their rookies don't show up they are an easy team to defend.

OC Dolphin

Nah. It’s all regular season stuff. The most important aspect of that is finishing up high enough to secure home field through the playoffs.

I do know that Clarkson and Nance make the Cavs significantly better. They were bench guys in a team not making the playoffs. As such, most fans outside the Laker market viewed them as nothing more than lumpy oatmeal, as opposed to being good but young.

Outside Brook Lopez and Pope the Laker team is young, energetic, with great attitude and work ethic.

Big Baby

People are coming around on this guy OC. Let him walk at your own risk.

ANY OF OUR CITIZENS HERE AN "ANGLO-AMERICAN"?

not me- my grandparents were romanian jews, and methinks every body here but Big Baby is somewhat of a cuban-american in their lineage. jeff sessions musta taken a hit on the bong before uttering that doozy of a statement. how does this sound- "he is a meshugenah!!!"

Mr. Woodcock

Explain meshugena.

Jimbo

Time for Dolphins to draft a talented QB. I'm game for them to either trade Tannehill (passes physical) to get legit day one starter. The other viable option is to keep Tannehill and draft a QB in the 2nd - 3rd round to serve as a 2 year backup. Anyway you slice it though, Matt Moore's time in Miami looks to be over. Keep an eye on the Vikings QB situation. Got 3 starting QB's on their roster. Not saying one is going to be a Fin but one of the 3 are getting the boot. This will have a domino effect on the draft.

Big Baby

shadow I am as Anglo as they get. Irish, English, Welsh, maybe a little German yeah.

Jimbo

"Mr. President, did you have sexual relations with Ms. Daniels?"

"Yea, I fucked her. I banged her like a gong at a Chinese New Year celebration. I pumped so much pork into Stormy that afterwards she felt like she was in a Louisiana smoke house!

Does that answer your question, counselor?"

Mr. Woodcock

"Oh, I see, Mr. President. No, no, that's all the questions that I have, sir. Next we will be calling Ms. Daniels to the stand. Yes sir, I'll make sure that I'm standing up at attention when Ms. Daniels takes the stand."

Mr. Woodcock

Amen.

citizens,

a sad, sad situation in broward. no words can describe. just too many of the almost everyday in america mass shootings/ killings. the 2nd amendment was meant to preserve lives, not take them.

Big Baby

Tough to legislate pre- meditated murderous intent shadow. If not for the automatic weapon maybe he could have devised something much more sinister. Either way the second amendment isn't going anywhere. These shootings didn't happen 20 years ago with regularity and the same guns were available. We have a Sociopath problem in the US now it seems.

Big Baby

Kid came from a broken home and no one was paying attention while he was posting gun videos online. Parents asleep at the wheel caused this one. I heard he may have been adopted either way this one is on his caregivers not the guns.

the shadow knows

Big Baby,

yes the guy was someone who should have been watched carefully, but these tragic mass murders are aided greatly by the ability of automatic/semi-automatic weapons. 17 people would not be dead today if the guy was aermed with a butcher knife or cleaver.

Big Baby

He was living with a family friend who knew he had the weapon and let him keep it there. He reportedly tortured animals and sent his dog after a neighbors pigs to scare them. He trespassed regularly in the neighborhood. His classmates knew he talked about using guns to do harm. This is a case of an adopted sociopathic man who was going to hurt people through whatever means necessary. The perils of living in a free country. I think we need to question the wisdom of someone allowing him to keep that weapon in their home knowingly.

Big Baby

Shadow why did these incidents not occur prior to Columbine? Same weapons were available then. Our society can no longer handle the Second Amendment. Is that a reason to amend it? Slippery slope once you start doing it.

OC Dolphin

Do gun control proponents ever stop and wonder why we never see these sickos perpetrate this kind of violence walking inside a police station?

Mr. Woodcock

Quiet OC, the last time you picked up a gun you fired one through my kitchen window into the side of the building next door!

a rather expensive-17+ lives-slip. so even when they know about these sociopaths they are not equipped/prepared to track down all the lunatics in our beloved country. maybe too busy colluding with the russians

Jimbo

Another school shooting. Tragic.
Go back 40 years in time. Boys would fist fight in school hallways. Teachers would watch and only break it up when one kid was clearly done. You would be sent to the principles office. He would talk to each of us individually then together. After shaking hands with your adversary the principle would do one of the following: Let you go about your business. 2. Beat your ass with a wooden paddle in the hallway then send you on your way. 3. Call your home. Your dad would beat your ass when you got home. Conflict was sorted out. black eye, busted lip, respect was earned. Not now. Half the guys vehicles in the school parking lot had a hunting rifle. Zero shootings. We would never think about using them on a person.
My boy (12 years ago) defended himself and was suspended 2 weeks. Steve wasn't permitted to retake tests, complete homework, etc. I come in after the call to see him, lady principle, other kids mom, other kid, school officer all there. I asked my kid in front of all "Did you start the fight?". No dad. "Did you win?" Yes dad. I did one of the judo throws and take down like I was taught. He continued to swing at me so I put him in a sleeper move. "Ok".

Too many kids on prescription drugs. Too much social media. Pop culture glorifies shooting, killing. Video games reward rape & kill. Sad.

Jimbo

Was trusted to carry an M-60 machine gun and set up claymore mines when I was 19. At 20 I was a squad leader. Age has nothing to do with maturity.

Fzb3346

Good morning gents,

A couple of things, taking away 2nd ammenment rights is a tricky if not dangerous situation however I do think changes can be made, how bout demanding a psycho test ? A 12 month waiting period ? What about banning assault weapons ? The right to bear arms is our right but something needs to be done..tragedies like this need to stop.

Hey did you guys see that Mueller came and handed 13 indictments on individuals / 3 Russian entities etc and no collusion found between Trump's campaign and the Russians? Fucking spend millions for something we already knew, if you wanna throw someone in jail look no further than Hillary, the DNC and top honchos in the FBI and the DOJ ...and add Obama to that as well.

Ok... my first draft talk of the yr...Draft O Lineman in all the rounds...ok maybe a TE in the 4th rd .

Mr. Woodcock

I don't know, but those Chinks that are ice skating this year make Michael Jackson look like Dick Butkus.

The question here is, are all men who figure skate gay or do you have to be gay to figure skate?

I'm figuring that with the current make up of the U.S. Olympic team NBC' s ratings have crashed through the floor.

From the look of the team except for the alpine skiing every athlete on the team looks like they were recruited from a laundry or Chinese restaurant in Monterey Park, Ca.

Jimbo

NFL free agency and draft coming up soon. What do you guys think?

Me? Cleveland is sitting on a ton of $, 3 draft picks in the top 33. Kirk Cousins and possibly Case Keenum are big factors. Tyrod Taylor and AJ McCarron to a lesser extent. Moves by Cleveland and top available QB's setting domino effect.

OC Dolphin

FZB,

This most recent school shooting was indeed a tragedy, and a “practical,” “efficient and righteous society SHOULD be able to curtail such incidents.

Many on the left immediately jump to banning guns altogether or placing limits on weapons. If you recall, ‘I am Kazaam’ and I would argue these points ad nauseam.

Here’s my take. Generally speaking, there are only two camps. Two versions of a personal view of the world. You have those who choose to obtain their news primarily from places such as: CNN, MSNBC, NPR, NYTimes WAPO and other “leftist agenda sites” and those who obtain their news from places like: FOX News, Breitbart, Drudge, The Federalist.

Observing further, it can be said that the “left” camp shares certain attributes, attributed summed up best I believe, in trying to bring about change to things in ways that SHOULD BE, as opposed to the way they are. Idealistically based, not accepting of “reality.” Of “practicality.”

Take the issue of guns and gun control here in America, for instance. Do you, or anyone really think that 300 million firearms will be confiscated by the government willingly or unwillingly? That altering the Second Ammendment in any significant way will come about? Well, to borrow one of the left’s favorite hero, BO - “That’s just NOT who we are.”

Wanting to abolish guns here in America is tantamount to wishing the earth to be oblong and not round. It will never happen. It is unrealistic.

OC Dolphin

A “practical” approach recognizes that guns will always be present within the citizenry of our country. Thus, look for “practical” solutions to combat the issue. These folks would cite examples such as the use of Air Marshals aboard commercial aircraft, or armed guards inside banks and other places where folks with guns and malintent seek to do harm.

The answer to the problem is not the elimination of guns, but the strategic placement of more of them.

Mr. Woodcock

It's easier to try to figure out Lindsey Vonn current skiing problems than to figure out what to do about gun violence.

In Lindsey's case it's an aerodynamics problem.

Every time that mudshark screws one of those black guys she grows a foot.

Jimbo

Woodcock. To continue your point on Vonn. That labia is so stretched out it creates drag in wind. Think of how a kid ties balloon on his bike and the sound it makes when it contacts the spikes in motion. Same. Lindsey takes off down the slope building up speed then the loose labes kick in "blubbb-blubbb-blubbb."

WHAT A RELIGION!!!...

thursday after noon is "purim"- a holiday during which we are supposed to get drunk!!
not for me because i don't like wine, and the diabetes factor says no alcohol, which is fine with me cause i don't drink and haven't for quite a few years now. hear lots of stories about the youngsters who drink too much, can't hold their liquor and get knee deep in vomit. next holiday is passover, where we drink four cups of wine each of the first two nights. as our beloved maddog, RIP, used to say "you guys celebrate vanquishing the bad guys by drinking cheap wine". there are plenty of gourmet kosher vinos which people loath on to, a great weekend to all!!
