Are the sportsball teams sportsing their sports tonight? Let's go to Buffalo's wild wings with the frat boys!

sidenote: Buffalo and restaurant are 2 words I can never ever spell correctly on the first try for some reason. I always wanna go Bufallo and restaraunt. They look obviously incorrect seeing them typed out, but I struggle

Kirk Anti-Clutch Cousins will lose to the Bears tomorrow while the Eagles beat the very bad Redskins to make it.

Rude! I'm going to the game with my whole family

All signs point to the Vikings winning this game, which means that they'll lose. If I had to bet 1 million dollars on the game, I'd take the Vikings but I've certainly been wrong before.

I just don't believe in Cousins when it matters. He lost to a very bad Giants team one year as a Redskin to miss the playoffs in the last week of the season.

That's a fair take. No argument here. I am a Kirk loyalist though.

Also I'm rooting for another Nick Foles Super Bowl because I think that would be hilarious

If that happened AGAIN what how would they handle wentz/foles situation

They've got to ride with Foles at that point, don't they?

It's an interesting hypothetical situation. If the Eagles do win the bowl again (they won't even make the playoffs), and foles wins back to back super bowls, you'd think they have to go with Foles....but they did draft Wentz #2 overall (and trade up to get him I think?) and he's had an off year, but it looks like he's the guy
OhhhJa
12/29/18 2:47:32 PM

At that point, I think I would just alternate foles/wentz (whoever is the hot hand) and switch to Foles in the playoffs

The NFLB seems to love Foles but I can't tell with those people if they're being ironic. They obviously actually watch the games more than me, but just statistically he isn't even close to Wentz. There is definitely something to the idea that the Eagles just win more with Foles but we're still in small sample size territory I think

Edit: And obviously Foles was a monster in the playoffs last year but his regular season rating was a 79.5

Looks like Edgar Martinez has a pretty good chance of getting in the Hall in his last year

If that happens, I think you have to look at how they won games. If they won with a steady running game and good defense, I think you can go with whoever. But, if Foles does control play, then you have to give him the reins.

It won't, though.

Should I buy this? What else am I gonna do with $4,500?
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/csw/rvs/d/victoria-30-vikings-rv-ready-for/6782695834.html

These guys always host tailgates through the Vikings subreddit and I've stopped over a couple times. It's a sweet RV, but owning one seems like the most impracticable thing in the world.

I don't know much about RVs but $4,500 sounds pretty cheap. However that one is apparently female and I only like genderless vehicles

Well ships usually have female names...I was curious and I googled why ships have female names, and I found the answer in a wonderful Yahoo Answers thread:
"It is because they are similar to women : They are expensive, need a lot of paint - and they always have a lot of men around them !"

UVA beat South Carolina in the Belk Bowl for our first win in a bowl since 2005. Bowls are weird because you only care about them if it's your team. It was a 28-0 win and I don't see how anyone could want to watch it if they weren't emotionally invested in one of the two teams. It was the first bowl I'd watched this year.

So bowls are dumb but it's nice to win one.

How's your tindering going Kevin? I think we discussed it once or twice didn't we? Me? Well I haven't met up with anyone in a while but this morning a girl who ghosted me (I'm not upset about it, really, though she was cool) showed up on my friend suggestions on FB and when I went to stalk her I accidentally added her. I was still in bed. I said out loud to myself "it finally happened." Then I blocked her ofc

ban facebook (I could see myself doing this too)

Anyways, I was actually dating someone for a small but significant amount of time, and we broke it off so I'm at it again.

Well that's too bad but it's also fine I guess. You did a little better than me in 2018. My biggest result was four dates with the same girl who I now sort of text as a friend but not really though I think we may play smash bros soon

I generally dislike stages that don't have proper edges, really takes the recovery element out of the game. Then again, ever since Brawl pretty much everyone has insane recovery so it's hard to die like that anyway. But it's still annoying how the side edges are offscreen

I'd go a step further and say I don't think there are a lot really great stages in Smash. It seems like increasingly as the series went on, all of them either have some significant flaw, or the actual good ones are virtually the same size and shape as each other (but the Battlefield/Omega addition is a good thing despite taking that to the ultimate extreme)

The stages I don't like are the ones that have holes in the middle of them. More often than not I end up jumping into them and knocking myself out.

I'm just mad you KO'd me twice with it when I was under 50% >:(

I think I saw you get it like three out of four though which is why I wondered. And the new animation actually shows the numbers cycling a little bit so I thought maybe you could make it stop on one
