    Re: What's the last good book you've read?

    The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly. It's the sequel to The Lincoln Lawyer, and it's damn good. I've read it before, as well as the third book in the series (The Reversal), but I'm in the process...

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    Except that it wasn't. She competed directly against college athletes, which is a violation of the rule. I think the rule is stupid, but she absolutely broke it.

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    I honestly can't remember all the details. But in any case, the association upheld the rule as it was written at the time, then made it more specific going forward. The illegal participation rule was...

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    For the record, I agree with the punishment. As much as I disagree with the rule, it's a rule that she/her parents willingly broke and she deserves to face the consequences for those actions. But I...

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    It's a stupid rule. The fact that it comes from the government hardly changes that (I think many might think that only reinforces the sentiment).

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    Maybe I'm missing something here, but she did win the 800 in the AAU Junior Nationals AND the USATF nationals. Her state record time wouldn't have put her in the finals in this year's NCAA's, but she...

    Re: Pleasant Valley girls track

    It's technically a different sport, so it's okay. No different than a guy like Russell Wilson playing minor league baseball while still maintaining eligibility in football. Jenks chose not to run...

    Pleasant Valley girls track

    Just saw this today. Pleasant Valley was stripped of the Class 4A girls track title a few days ago due to the participation of an ineligible athlete who was involved in 38 team points at the state...

    Re: Des Moines, you ready for Manny?

    Dead-on, too. Manny is doing his best Willie-Mays-with-the-Mets impression right now. And it's definitely a little sad to see.
  10. Re: Grantland: Sports movie or not a sports movie?

    I honestly had a tough time following his logic on a few of them. First of all, I didn't get the distinction between a wedding movie and a rom-com (which he mentioned in the Bull Durham section)....

    Re: New commit: Seth Nerness.

    Wow. I'd heard rumors a few months ago that he was considering transferring to one of the CIML schools (Valley was a popular pick), but figured once that never came to pass that he was staying put....

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Baez hit another dinger tonight that was an absolute rocket. He nearly hit a second one to dead center that would have tied the game with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th (two 7-inning games tonight),...

    Re: ESPN FIGHT!

    It's how they handle Beadle that I'm interested in seeing. Not that I disagree with her at all, but they punished Simmons for publicly criticizing FT, which is exactly what Beadle did here. Kind of...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    For some reason, I was thinking he was a player option. In any case, I'd honestly rather go after him in 2015 than Price. Go for Lester or Scherzer this year, then make a very big push for Cueto...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Personally, Cueto is the guy I most want to see the Cubs go after in FA, mostly because he's better and a couple years younger than the other top FA starters.

    You're basically ignoring the entire premise of the question and saying Chicago>DSM. He didn't ask which bar scene you would rather hit up after the game, he's asking which team would you rather...

    MLB: Re: 2014 Chicago Cubs

    Who knows, they could be big spenders this offseason, too. Potential FA starters this winter: Scherzer, Cueto, Lester (another guy Theo knows well). Any one of those guys would give the Cubs a...
