    College baseball changed the way umps call 'hit by pitch' balls a few years back. Basically now if the batter appears to be making a move to hit the ball, even if its a wild pitch that ends up hitting the batter, that's still a strike.

    TCU’s Schlossnagle calls college baseball’s hit-by-pitch rule an ‘embarrassment’

    I totally agree with TCU's coach here. It's a nonsensical rule that can only be justified on paper. When you see it in action no one in their right mind that's played baseball before can justify nailing a batter with a wild pitch and penalizing the batter with a strike.

    Denny Hamlin has won the last two Daytona 500's, and three of the last five. If he wins the 2021 one he'll become the first driver in history to win it three times in a row. And he'll also become tied for 2nd most all-time wins.

    Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney with Hamlin are the three favorites to win but really, in my mind, it's Hamlin and then everyone else. What do you think this does to his legacy, if he does win three straight? Does this put him in the conversation of best racer of all time? Is he already there? If not, what else does he have to do?

    Stafford's never had the full package like Rams can offer him - the best defense in the league (or at least top 2-3) and a full compliment of really good to great receivers - assuming they all stay healthy. Plus solid running backs because the Lions were historically the worst running team over Stafford's entire stint with them.

    So he has the team and now just needs to live up to it. I think asking him to make the Super Bowl and win it his first year is crazy, given that greats like Rodgers and Brees only made it once or twice, and only won it once. And not to mention he is now in the same conference as Brady, who will clearly be the NFC favorite for at least 1 to 2 more seasons.

    But he makes the Rams better. And at the end of the day that's the best a franchise can do - make their team as good as possible and hope for the best. They'll be serious contenders for as long as Stafford is healthy and that defense remains in tact.

    The Buccs turned out to be the absolute best team for Brady to pick to go to. He picked a team with a great, up and coming defense and one that had a solid offense core, that only needed a few more pieces, which Arians and himself where able to acquire (Fournette, Gronk, AB).

    I don't think the Buccs were even a playoff team without Brady so this does speak to his greatness beyond all else. But also his football intelligence - he could have chose many other teams to finish out his career in and they likely ALL would have been a worse choice.

    Yeah, read that Budweiser feels it would be tone deaf (to paraphrase) for them to run an ad, given everything that's happened lately. But I do find it odd that they just think that for Budweiser, but Anheuser-Busch doesn't think that for their light beers? Not quite sure the disconnect there.

    Definitely more exciting than the normal Pro Bowl. I agree, I'll actually watch this one. Should be fun.

    This matchup would have never been possible if Belichick and company could have found their way into keeping (and paying) the best QB to ever play the game.

    But now we have it. And I'm sure its EXACTLY what the NFL wanted, the moment Brady announced he was a Bucc. You have the most dominant quarterback in the history of the game, that's taken his team to a Super Bowl an astounding 10 times now (winning 6 so far) vs the second coming in Patrick Mahomes, coming fresh off his own Super Bowl win, where he was the MVP.

    So Brady's been there 10 times (out of 21 seasons) and won 6, and he's 43. Mahomes is 1/1 and he's only 25. This is a fascinating game, that will either play out as a passing of the torch from one all time great to another. Or another time where Brady just simply wins again.

    I think the Chiefs win this game. The Buccs have the defense advantage but only slightly. Whereas the Chiefs I think have a more dynamic offense, and therefore are just harder to hang with.

    How do you see Super Bowl LV going down?

    Now that the fight's been over a little bit, figured I would share. Definitely shocked by Poirier's second round.

    Yeah I agree. Djokovic doesn't seem to be pretending like its no big deal, he just seems to be looking out for players. Maybe not all his ideas were good, but I had no problem with him voicing his opinions. He is the top male tennis player in the world, so its not like he doesn't have a right to speak up with some ideas.

    Yeah, is a sad story.
