  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It was gut wrenching to read this thread. Thank you for sharing your story and your feelings - it's really touching to read, even for someone with no children and has never met you.
  2. At what point do I cut bait on Masterson and/or Bailey? Possible options available: Beckett, De La Rosa, Tomlin, Paxton 12 team, 5x5 roto.
  3. OK, in all seriousness, I am surprised the Pens pulled of this deal and it doesn't seem like they gave up much. Really curious as to what the lines will look like, since the Dupuis-Sid-Kunitz line is really clicking. Iginla bumps Dupuis? Then Morrow-Malkin-Neal, Cooke-Sutter-Dupuis, Bennett-Adams-Kennedy? I like how Beau Bennett has been playing and hate to see him down on the 4th line. But I'm no coach or GM, so whatever. I also like that the two main rentals the Pens picked up are guys that were captains on their teams. Good character guys.
  4. I am so glad I finally found this thread! I'm taking everything out of the stock market and putting it all on the Tennessee Titans +1 tonight.
  5. Totally agree with this. Besides, Penn State already has plenty of fans and alumni in the DC and NY areas. This doesn't help. As conferences move towards 16 teams, isn't that basically just two 8 team conferences that happen to play a title game between them? Football teams would play 1 or maybe 2 cross-over games, and thus basically not be in the same conference.
  6. Can't say their sales are so strong just because the fanboy geeks buy every new version. They sold 20+ Million iPhones in the quarter, even though it had been out for a year. The fanboys already had theirs. Now, everyone is buying them and not just the "loyal base".
  7. Dupree one was fantastic. The relevance to the Cam Newton saga is quite interesting. How are these kids supposed to resist the money, or even know about all of the money?
  8. Is there where I complain that installing OS 4.0 totally screwed my 3G? It's way slower, stuff crashes, and it didn't improve anything. Thanks for rolling out a software downgrade, Apple. I'm pretty sure they did this on purpose to get people to buy the new iPhone.
  9. I read page 1. woz reels them in like no other. Amazing.
  10. I haven't hedged against myself in any round thus far. In fact, I've done just the opposite betting on the hawks to win each series. I have 275 on the hawks to win it all at an average of 5/1. I can buy philly to win it all right now at 2/1, should I hedge off 150 to win 300 on the flyers? I don't think the Habs are going to pull a miracle in this series. My head and heart both say no to hedging. I think hedging is usually the smart play, but you may be able to wait and get a better price too. You're in a great spot either way. Nicely done.i think looking for the best price makes the most sense. I certainly wouldn't want to have all my eggs in the Blackhawks basket, but I am pretty sure you will get a better price for the Flyers as the series goes on. Hoppe the Hawks win game 1 of the cup finals, because I woudn't be surprised to see the Flyers take 1 of the first 2 games.I think you guys are both right. I should be able to get a better price somewhere along the lines. Perhaps even alot of steam coming in on the Blackhawks later this week could push it to a 3/1 play. Thanks for the good advice.On a serious note, only consider hedging if you really think the Flyers are getting a good price. You're making two independent bets. The fact that you have money on the Blackhawks means nothing to a Flyers bet, so think of it as independent. Unless this money seriously impacts your bankroll and ability to wager going forward, then only bet Philly if you like the price you're getting.

My head and heart both say no to hedging.Last year, I had a little on the Penguins at insane odds that I got when they were slumping in February. Didn't hedge until they were down 0-2 in the Finals. Cost myself $500 and I felt really really bad about betting against my team. Moral of the story: Don't hedge, unless you need to jinx the Blackhawks into winning.
  12. A few observations: 1. Weird seeing a few people with Steeler logos/sigs rooting for the Flyers. I'm not judging you guys - just not the norm. 2. Flyers have played NJ, BOS, and MTL in the playoffs. They ranked 19th, 29th, and 23rd respectively during the regular season in Goals For. Blackhawks ranked 3rd. Just saying... 3. Still a little bitter/disappointed that the Pens blew it, as a Pittsburgh/Philly ECF would have been great, as would a Pittsburgh/Chicago SCF. Alas, the Pens didn't deserve to be there this year. 4. While definitely rooting for Chicago, I would laugh a little bit if Hossa lost for the 3rd straight year.
  13. Holy ####! A Flyers fan sticking up for Crosby? Didn't think that was possible. I commend you, good sir. As for Game 7, I'm pretty nervous. I have a bad feeling about the game. Pens haven't really solved Halak since game 1, and the Canadiens don't need many scoring chances to get the goals. Pens have to hold Montreal to 2 goals or fewer to win.
