  1. Yeah....REALLY rough season so far (and with it being shortened, we're kinda already getting to the end game). The blue team is kinda the most interesting (at least to me) but because they never lose, you really haven't seen much of them. Green is obviously a complete trainwreck. Yellow's eventually path seems fairly predictable. Eventually Xander is just going to get completely blindsided because he's totally naive and wont realize when he's no longer useful. My guess is they're gonna lay the social message on THICK down the stretch....since there really aren't any good "characters" this year to root for/against. Just a big bag of meh across the board.
  2. I just can't with these pre-game outfits. I feel like the players are just pulling one gigantic troll job. No chance Westbrook actually thinks that's a cool look. No way.
  3. This is probably # 2 for me. Its even worse when they actually take the time to bring the cart to the return but then put it in the wrong row (my grocery store has big carts and little mini carts). Because then it stops everyone after them from subsequently stacking carts, resulting in total anarchy and carts just spilling out everywhere.
  4. My biggest "WE'RE LIVING IN A SOCIETY!!!!" trigger is when someone just straight up takes up 2 parking spaces. I'm not talking about just barely going over the line. I'm talking about when someone is like 2/3 in one spot and 1/3 in another. That's not a "whoops", that's an F you to anyone else who might need that spot.
  5. Had a very weird situation at an outing yesterday. It was a scramble and none of us had played the course before. Our caddie was acting as a forecaddy as well, standing in the fairway and moving up to the green to collect wayward shots and keep up pace of play. So by the time we got to the green after hitting our approaches on most holes, he'd already picked up all 4 balls and marked the best one for putting. On the 2nd hole (par 3, so closest to the pin was available) I saw him quite obviously toss the ball marker (which he had put down) like 2 feet closer to the hole when we went to measure the distance. None of us prompted him to do this and I was pretty surprised. I saw him do it several other times during the round (so I now assume he was doing it on basically every hole). We hit some really good shots, but I'm guessing he was turning a lot of 10 foot putts (or longer, I honestly have no idea) into like 7 foot putts. I happened to be on fire with the putter (made some longer ones as well) and we ended up finishing in 2nd place and winning some prizes. One of the dudes in our group won the closest to the pin (where he was clearly aided by the caddie) and a straightest drive (that for all we now, the caddy just tossed onto the line. We couldn't see it land because for some reason....the straightest drive hole had a blind landing area. Weird choice....) I honestly had no idea how to react. Obviously this gentleman subscribes to the idea that if we have a good round, we'll be more likely to give him a good tip. He wasn't overtly doing it right in front of us most of the time (the course had a lot of elevated greens, so I couldn't always see exactly where our shots ended up) but I saw him do it at least 2-3 times myself. For all I know....every caddie was doing this...but based on the other scores, I doubt it (unless nobody else made any putts all day). Would ya'll have said something? I'm happy to walk away with some decent prizes (got 2 pretty nice Quarter zips out of the deal.) but I feel so scummy after the fact. Good chance we would have gotten 2nd place anyway (the gap was big) but still....I absolutely HATE when people cheat in events like this.
  6. Yeah, good results all around this week. Sad that this is all we have to root for, but such is life as a Jets fan
  7. Oof. They're paying zeke HOW much and they don't go for it on 4th and 1? Cowardly
  8. Meh. Wake me up when he outperforms George bello
  9. United absolutely in shambles at the back today
  10. Not that I would ever root for a player to get injured.....but Russell Wilson on injured reserve. At least a month of Geno Smith starting. That first round pick for Adams looking pretty decent right now
  11. 100% agree that I dont know much of anything. (I know you're not taking a shot at me personally or anything, just sayin....) Never played the game at a high level. Never coached it at ANY level. Only really been watching it seriously for 10 years or so. (thanks mostly to all the info I learned from the actual soccer minds in this thread) But this was my first substantive post (basically anything other than "WTF is Greg Thinking") after the lineup came out....(before the game started) Others posted something similar. This wasn't MM QB'ing, it was an immediate acknowledgement of the weaknesses of the individual selections, as well as the likely shortcomings of those players as a group. Literally everyone could see it other than the one guy who mattered. Its just really disappointing. It also makes me question the value of Greg's assistants. Either they liked this lineup too (which, IMO, makes them incompetent), they're Yes Men (which makes them cowards) or Greg doesn't value their opinions (in which case....why are they there?) Its over now, so not much point crying about it. But I'd LOVE to know just what the actual tactics WERE prior to this match. I sure didn't see any. What was the plan? It seems like the plan was "lets just hope Panama doesn't score and maybe we'll luck into one". And that's a pretty crappy plan. I know that "draws on the road" are a good path to qualification, but they weren't set up to draw. They were set up to lose. Agree that you have to give the coach credit for the good results if you're gonna blame him for the bad ones. They won the 2 Mexico games. That happened. Kudos to Greg. But they really didn't play well at all during those tournaments (For the most part). They got results against mostly weaker opposition (even the US B team is better than most of what showed up at the Gold Cup) and didn't create many chances at all. Had Turner not stood on his head all tournament, they certainly dont win the Gold Cup.
  12. Called again today. (my discounts officially ran off last week). Now, the person i talked to is claiming that discounts might not be showing up because I've already scheduled my disconnect. Asked me if I wanted to cancel my disconnect to see if any deals came through. Just a bunch of nonsense. I'm not gonna play their little games to see if their computer system is gonna catch up. You either want my business or you don't. Pretty clear what the answer is, so I'll look elsewhere. Gonna explore the option with cable but it looks youtube TV is gonna be a good option as well.
  13. I dont think anyone was asking him to play the "perfect" lineup.....just a better lineup. There were plenty of options to make that happen without burning out the main 11. They picked a lineup with no creativity and got exactly what we all thought they would. No goals.....not even a shot. I honestly think things COULD have been very different (hell, even a shot or 2 on goal would have been nice) if he just made like 2 changes. Take out Lleget and Nips, add in LDLT (or Busio) and Hoppe. I really think those changes relieve a lot of pressure on Musah (which would resulted in him playing better) and create more opportunities to involve Weah and Zardes and create some chances. Weah was totally frozen out and ineffective without a midfield that could reliably move the ball forward. I would have played Yedlin as well, but the offense was easily the bigger concern It just seemed like GGG just gave up on winning the game without even considering all the options. Panama is a perfectly decent, organized team....but they were beatable if we at least tried.
  14. I'm not sure there's ever been anyone more happy to play survivor than Nasir. Dude is just a fireball of positivity Whenever Jeff asks him a question, I keep expecting this to be his response https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66gG4g5_GJg
