    I never understood the 10 year contract. I agree with these guys that 4-6 years makes a lot more sense. For any player from any sport. Does make it more interesting for the Padres if there is an opt-out around year 5 or so. But I'm not so sure it'll be that easy.

    Crazy to think that Bryce Harper might turn around in short order and beat this deal too. And I gotta agree with pundits again there; Bryce will likely be more deserving of a monster record-setting deal than Manny. Though I do like Manny and even though the Padres overpaid, maybe in some years it'll prove to be a smart move IF a lot of pieces around him materialize.

    That was intense. Sucked too as they had just had another smaller wreck happen just before that one. So it lasted all of a lap or two on restart when that big one went down. I'm happy for Hamlin but really doesn't feel like a great win for him after that. Some of those drivers just behind him and Busch had a legitimate chance of passing and making for a great finish.

    There's also this:

    Bonus points for creativity I guess. Pretty entertaining.

    NBA's All-Star Weekend is supposed to be capped off with the most exciting event of the 3 day affair, the All-Star Game. The only problem with that.. its the most boring and least interesting event of the whole weekend. No one tries; it's not competitive at all, just like with every major pro league.

    This video does a great job explaining how annoying the whole ordeal is with every league feeling like they have to put on an all star show and how fans have grown to increasing hate it:

    For the NBA weekend, the celebrity game that happens on Friday is way more entertaining. And I only really tune in for the 3-point and dunking contest myself. So I say we should all petition the league to do away with that joke of a game on Sundays and just do more contests instead. Who's with me?

    In all seriousness, I am looking forward to Curry's showing at the 3-point contest. And Dennis Smith Jr for the dunk contest.

    Used to be if you didn't catch the Daytona 500 live on TV or in person, you just missed it. Then it was the same, unless you had a blank tape and a VCR to record. Then, DVR. Now the internet in all its glory gives us full race replays of the entire Daytona 500 event, many times including the pre and post game action and the video uploaders have the right mind and courtesy to also edit out all the ads. Tech has come a long way. :)

    I am just old enough to have lived through every iteration of watching this race and for that fact re-watching it as it became more and more possible. Now it's as easy as a click and free to boot.

    Found a resource that has videos for all the races in full, plus highlights dating back to year 2000. Been re-watching some moments from a few of my favorite races. Mainly re-watched the last 45 minutes or so from 2018's with Austin Dillon. Then skipped to Dale Jr. winning it in 2014. He was the runner up in so many races surrounding that win just was a cool moment to see him finally get that notch on his belt.

    Those were my two favorites from the last decade. Anyone else find themselves wanting to rewatch these old races?

    Just watched this as well. They seem to agree with you:

    Man, as soon as I knew it was Maroon 5 performing I knew I could mute and ignore until the game came back on. But after seeing what people were saying, like how bad it was and all, I had to go back and watch at least some of it.

    You're right, they fumbled the Spongebob tribute and just made it odd and confusing. And Adam Levine should really consider just never doing that again on stage.

    Unfortunately the halftime show went right along with the game and just fell flat. The cliché that the ads were the best thing about the game, this year probably was truer than most any other.

    Man that was a boring game. Not just a boring Super Bowl, which it was. Maybe the least exciting one I've seen since I've been watching them back in the early 90's. But it was also just a boring game period. So many regular season games were more compelling than that.

    Not sure why the match up fell so flat. Except to say these two teams were very evenly matched and both have really good defenses that step up in the biggest moments. Unfortunately it didn't feel like the kind of defensive battle that was fun to watch though, like Cowboys v Saints was in the regular season.

    Good on the Pats though. They had a less than stellar year when the NFC was all the rage and they weren't even the most popular team in AFC for most the year. And yet, they find a way once again.

    Bud Light definitely outdid themselves this time by teaming up with HBO to promote the final season of Game of Thrones. They got a few "Dilly Dilly's" in there, but this 90 second commercial was a heck of a lot more than that. A jousting match turned into something far scarier after The Bud Knight defeated a mysterious opponent in a jousting match only to find out that the opponent was actually The Mountain from Game of Thrones. Needless to say, The Mountain got the final word.

    Bud Light - Game of Thrones Season 8

    That ad was great. Maybe my favorite of the night. Made so much sense to partner with GOT. Very well done.
