    It definitely makes it more fun to know stuff like this in different sports. I'm a huge Chicago Blackhawk fan now, but it wasn't until I moved to Chicago years ago and learned all about their history and whatnot that I became a fan. It also absolutely helped they they won the Stanley Cup that year, same as you and the Cubs experience.

    I think it's a good move. It'll most definitely be more interesting than traditional baseball, which I almost cannot stand. Though I do understand why people do love baseball, I just don't see it. I would actually watch it for the Olympics though. I think it will add much more competition to the sport. I wonder if they'll change any of the major components specifically for the Olympics.

    And I think you're right about Japan dominating or at least being a huge threat. They take sports in general so seriously. Plus, I think Japan probably has the best sports fans of any country. They're super respectful, clean up after themselves, and seem to generally appreciate every game. Of course there's always going to be bad apples, but not any where near fans like Brazil or the U.S, which can both be on extreme sides of the spectrum.

    I wasn't expecting such a one-sided game. With a final of 44-16, Clemson absolutely crushed Alabama.... No two ways about it. What a night for Trevor Lawrence. Freshman QB throwing for 347 yards and 3 TDs is super impressive.

    Also, I don't know if this was a playoff game or not, but this is truly one of the most insane accident plays of all time.

    Fast forward to 1:16 to see the best view:

    Can be from any year. What are the best plays of the NFL playoffs for you?

    I'll start this off with the best play from the Cowboys/Seahawks 2018-19 playoff game. It was a 3rd and 14 with 2:33 to go in the game. Cowboys were only up 3. And Dak does this:


    That was an amazing play to see. On a related note, it's infuriating to me that that play wasn't considered a touchdown. The NFL take touchdowns way, way too serious these days..

    Anyway, I'm searching for the Packers play I definitely think should be on the list. I'll post it up as soon as I find it.

    Momentum is such a funny thing. I feel like it's super important to have strong momentum going into the playoffs for a sport like the NBA, but not so much in the NFL and others. For example, I would put my money on a team that's won 5 consecutive NBA games to win the championship, but I'd go for the opposite team in the exact situation for the NFL. I can't really pinpoint exactly why that is, but if I look back at my predictions it's always rang true for me.

    And as far as the Saints go, I wonder what Drew Brees thought about sitting that game out. He's definitely seasoned enough to know that it would be a loss of momentum of they didn't win. And not only did they lose against the Panthers yesterday, they got destroyed up until the last quarter. 30 to 0 for most of the game had to sting. In my opinion, that's going to affect them going into the next game.

    I'm so tired of seeing a new article almost every other day about how Colin Kaepernick is not getting signed by whichever team they choose to mention that day. It's basically the same article over and over. First off, they've gotten very good at wording the title to make it seem like Kaepernick actually did get signed. For example, "Chicago Bears Talk Signing Kaepernick as Backup QB". But of course, once you click into the article you see what they actually mean is "Chicago Bears talk Not signing Kaepernick as Backup QB". It's not even actually discussed at all. All these articles are about how these teams/coaches are not even talking about signing Kaep..

    So what's the deal? Why do we have to keep hearing about how this one decent QB is still not signed to a team? Is it simply because of the buzz surrounding him? That's just straight click-bait.

    That being said, I'm not even sure he'd be good as a QB. I know he did really well that first year after he took over for Alex Smith, but he dwindled quite a bit after that..*cough, kind of like Cam Newton, cough*. Actually, now that I think about it, I bet Kaepernick would make a great replacement for Cam. The Panthers need a QB more like Kaep. He's got the build to run as much as Cam, but knew not to use it as much. I'd really like to see that happen and with what the Panthers have produced lately.. there could be a changed coming to the Panthers soon. But just to be clear, I am not saying Kaep is being considered.

    This isn't very shocking to me. I've played cornhole (bags) tons of times and have only won maaybe once. I have however tossed the bag by myself and done really well, but no one is ever around to see it. Anyway, I think it's pretty cool that some smaller/just for fun kind of games are making it to TV. I've accidentally changed the channel to frisbee-golf a few times and always end up watching so much more than I'd expect. Those guys can do some insane stuff with a frisbee.

    Dallasite Wrote: So I'm confused now reading this and looking into it a little. I don't know much about hockey rules.. so coaches can challenge offsides? How does that work? Why don't they just leave that up to some refs upstairs? Can they only challenge a certain amount of times like the NFL?

    It really all depends on if there's a goal scored. For instance, the only 2 instances where a coach can challenge is if he feels the goalie was interfered with during a successful goal, or if he think there was offsides during a successful goal.

    Though it's exactly like the NFL regarding timeouts. They can only challenge (*only* for one of the two situations above) if they have a timeout remaining. If they lose the challenge, they lose the timeout. If they win, the retain it.

    As for the other changes that need to happen, I don't see them happening anytime soon. The NHL is able to stick to their was, at least in the states, so much more than the NFL. It's not as prominent as the NFL and that gives them more freedom to do so, I think.
