    NBA play-in games: Good Idea? Bad Idea?

    It’s weird, I feel like on paper the Bulls are destined for peak NBA hell right now, being good enough to solidly make the playoffs but nowhere near good enough to win the whole thing, but somehow they’re much worse than that. Their defense is generally poor and overall extremely inconsistent...

    NBA play-in games: Good Idea? Bad Idea?

    I don't find the play-ins all that interesting except that it almost allowed my Bulls who don't deserve to be in the playoffs to "be" in the playoffs. But.. they proved they still aren't even good enough for that. It doesn't change the trajectory of the playoffs as a whole, though. I think the...

    MLB: ***Official 2021 Chicago Cubs Season Thread***

    Yeah, maybe I would get used to it, but it really hurts the broadcast for me. To your point, though, I do agree that the rapport between her and JD feels more comfortable, and less labored. If only she would would do less of "broadcaster voice" it'd be great. Honestly, Boog doesn't really do it...

    MLB: ***Official 2021 Chicago Cubs Season Thread***

    First impression, personally, I dislike listening to her. She has what sounds like a very put-on broadcaster voice, and that manner of speaking drives me up the wall.

    Vaccine reactions

    I've seen one story, and it's really debatable whether you can attribute it to the vaccine or not. There are a handful of exceptionally rare cases (talking in the 30's per 10's of millions) of people who after getting vaccinated have developed ITP, which is a condition where the body's immune...

    Offseason Kool-Aid

    I’m trying to temper expectations. A lot of things can happen over the course of a season... injuries, bad bounces, weird weather... all those variables are what makes it really, really hard to have 9+ wins. Can this team do it? Absolutely. Do I want it to happen? For sure. But it’s hard to...

    Unpaid Internship Debate

    I totally agree with you, although I understand why people do that when it's basically the way to get a job.

    Unpaid Internship Debate

    This is true. I had internships every summer of my undergrad career, all engineering, all paid. There didn't exist any unpaid engineering internships. I think it's just very industry-specific. It may not be true to say across the board that it's hard to find a paid internship, but if you talk...

    Unpaid Internship Debate

    I feel like hiring has become even more about "it's who you know" than it used to.

    Considering switching from Android to iPhone

    Agreed. Google has been trying for literally years to get the carriers to implement a new standard protocol for data-based chat, and to call the adoption pace glacial would not be exaggeration. Even now, only some carriers, with some phones, support it. Then Google enabled it for... some people...

    Considering switching from Android to iPhone

    Thanks everyone for the comments, it's been an interesting discussion. I decided to take the plunge (which I realize is an overly dramatic way to phrase it), and get an iPhone. As Sousaclone said, "Won't know until you try something different.". I went the used route -- got an iPhone XS on...

    Considering switching from Android to iPhone

    I have been a pretty faithful Android user from early on, but lately I'm feeling a little... jaded, with regards to Google's stuff. I'm getting sick of receiving what feels like also-ran treatment, between my phones which are regularly abandoned by the manufacturer within 6 months to a year of...

    Favorite Super Bowl Halftime show

    Yeah, this one was super meh. Definitely one of my favorites of recent memory was Bruno Mars. Performance-wise, dude absolutely ******* killed it.

    ***Super Bowl 55 Game Thread Chiefs vs. Bucs***

    Sounds like almost every unsportsmanlike penalty. The instigator never seems to get called. That said, I didnt see what actually happened here.

    NFL: *** Official Superbowl Commercial Thread***

    Okay, really liked the ETrade commercial. That Toyota one was nice, as much as I don't go for the sappy commercials. And the Hellman's was.. Good enough.

    NFL: *** Official Superbowl Commercial Thread***

    Enjoyed the GM commercial, and I think my other favorite was the M&Ms commercial.
