They should make the players keep track of the score themselves, like in pickup games.

That's always a fun discussion.

I love math and healthcare, and I've grown to like insurance.

I still try to focus on these three things when I seek out projects, even though I no longer do any actuarial work.

What's the age difference?

Less important: Did this person recently pass an exam? I notice actuaries are especially cocky right after they pass an exam.

Even if salaries were based on the "better player" argument, I think the comparison would be LeBron + 4 end of bench guys vs the 5 you mentioned. I'd take LeBron

I really thought Wiggins would be good. So much for the article I read that said "his floor is T-Mac".

The T-Wolves owner tried to get out of giving him a max contract, too. What a bummer.

I just realized that this is the first SB I'll be watching since the 2016 season. I'm finally getting over that heartbreak.

Henry had a lot of touches in college (and high school, I guess). I don't think he has more than 2 years or so left.

I was really rooting for Tennessee. Kinda bummed out.



Ah. The year the Falcons should’ve made the Super Bowl but decided to give up an enormous lead. I remember very well.

Well, if Tennessee can go up 14 early, they can just pound the rock with Henry, taking up 6 minutes per drive.

Now that the season's over, I want to rant about how streaky the Falcons can be.

6-1 start, finishing 8-8

1-4 start,...

In all honesty, he was holding on to the ball too much (and throwing too many interceptions) the first 7-8 games of the season. The Oline was terrible, but it can't be any worse than Cleveland,...

Yep, 2 of the other three teams didn't/wont break 100. I'll possibly break 170. Wouldn't won if we still did 2-week cumulative scoring.

SPEED RANKING

That's what I get for failing MLC twice. In my defense, a 0 shouldn't count as a fail... should be more of a "did not take".

Don't get me started. At what time do we stop saying "This team has so much potential. They just need to get it together" and just reset? I have no idea.

That's quite a bit of money, to be fair; but probably much more than common than 1/100 on these message boards. I wonder if I'll ever make that much... or if I even make the 1% for my age bracket....

My fantasy playoff hopes depend on the Seahawks being shut out by the Eagles (opponent has Wilson, Lockett, and Metcalf starting). This is the second time all year where I'm not wishing you luck.
