Anyone who’s still lurking, come lurk in the shadows. Right this way…

Apparently the Pittsburgh Pirates SBNation site is going through the same thing we experienced at Another Place. Looks like Vox is really cracking down on attractive women.

OT … Kinda … Headed thru Pittsburgh next week on my way to Port Clinton, OH / Lake Erie for some Walleye Fishing … Culinarily, Is there anything other than Primanti’s Deli I shouldn’t miss Food – Wise Whilst I’m About ? … ( PS : Not a Fan of that Oddly Spiced Drek they call ” Cincinnati Chili ” … : (

I envy the fishing trip. I’m not necessarily a great walleye fisherman, but I really enjoy fishing for them.

Still don’t think it’s Vox pushing it. From my understanding of the situation there, it’s their newish religious nut owner cracking down. It’s possible, but one would think it would be more widespread than two sites if it were Vox.

I got my gaming mouse in the mail today. The funny part is that I don’t game much, so I just mapped copy and paste onto the extra buttons.

The one I use is super nice. It even has weights that you can add and position to make it perfect. Another GREAT feature is that I can unlock the mousewheel to roll freely so I can scroll super fast if I want, all with the click of a button.

One of my favorite keymaps on it is the BACK button and push-to-talk.

Weights? That would be Mighty

Best mouse I’ve had. You can also change the sensitivity on the fly.

The smartest thing was mapping z to another one of the extra buttons so I don’t need to use my keyboard to scroll through AG comments.

Random thought – outside of the first half against the Patriots in the AFC Championship, has a Mahomes-led offense gone an entire half without scoring? I can’t recall if we scored in the 2nd half against the 49ers early in the season.

A Lunar Ting

I want to say they got a FG

Mattl
Mattl

If I’m right, it would mean that we’ve scored 37 out of 38 halves with Mahomes, going 14-5 over that span. I’m just curious if any other team could make a similar claim??

Tyrone

Ignoring 2017, so only last season:
SEA (10-6), LAC (12-4), BAL (10-6), ATL (7-9), KC (12-4) – All put up points in every half.

LAR (13-3), CHI (12-4) All put up points in all but 1 half

Playoff Scoring by half (Yes – No)
BAL – 1-1
CHI – 2-0
LAC 4-0
SEA – 2-0
LAR 5-1
KC – 3-1

Mattl

Wow, that was fast. Thanks, man. I’m actually surprised – I never would have thought that many teams went 32 for 32. Especially Baltimore!

Tyrone

LAC over the same span you mentioned, 14-5 – scored in every half

They’ll give us quite a battle this year once again, I’m sure.

Yeah Baltimore is surprising.

Points = $$$

Mitko

I swear to God if we trade a 1st for Kyle Rudolph and do nothing with our secondary…

Tyrone

Not even Gruden would be dumb enough to trade a first for Rudolph.

I would be on board with maybe a 4th for Rudolph cause I’m scared by our TE depth.

A must see for any Thrones fans. While not particularly spoilery, as most of this was filmed prior to the season starting, the weight of their comments will be more impactful if you have been watching this train wreck of a season.

I love how Dinklage is complaining just like I was when they were putting women and children in the crypts with a guy attacking who turns dead into whitewalkers.

And later when he’s “praising” the writers, it sounds so forced and he can’t look at the reporter in the eye as he’s saying it.

Before GOT Season 8 started, i was so excited and sorry the show was ending.
Now I’m relieved there’s only 1 episode remaining. This writing from “the best writers in television”…one word. Disappointing.

Leaf

I was telling a guy on another site, they could have ended this season totally generic and it would still probably have gone down as one of the greatest shows ever, albeit with a disappointing ending. But they have been trying to be clever in order to give us that shocking spectacle and the over all story has suffered.

Jason Whitlock is a clown, and is getting clowned on twitter. Its entertaining.

Most sports talking heads are clowns at best.

EJ Manuel retires.

He played quarterback in the NFL, and has made more money than he should ever need. Not a bad way to retire at 29.

Tarkus

I’m gonna miss that time fans thought he was going to beat out Henne.

Meanwhile, some boogie to get you through the rest of your Monday.

Rod Price (also RIP, though a while ago) is making that slide guitar sing in ways only Duane Allman could.

The first time I heard this song was when I started running a race called “The Army 10 Mile Fun Run,” which wasn’t as fun as it sounded. But they let us use headphones, and that was (at the time) about four miles further than I’d ever run. I was kinda proud of running probably 8 of the 10 miles, and in Iraq no less.

Nasrani

Wow, Gunther Cunningham passed? I remember when he was the reason behind our 90s defensive surge and all the hype surrounding him as a head coach (which, ultimately, didn’t pan out).

Always wondered why we didn’t give him another look to be our DC in the early-mid 2000s, particularly when we didn’t switch to a 3-4 until 2008 or 9.

RIP Coach.

Leaf

We did. He was DC from 2004-2008

Nasrani

Oh I guess I didn’t realize that at the time, but given the defensive roster in those eras was largely meh, I guess I can see why I forgot about that.

Could you imagine the sidelines with him and Vermiel? Dick would be in tears just from Gunther trying to have his normal intensity level of conversations
