    1972 Olympic Men's Bball USSR vs. USA

    I always took it for granted that this was the biggest cheat ever because announcers always say so, but after watching it, I'm not too sure. The fiasco at Marquette in 2013 was a bigger cheat than this was. I know there is some irregular stuff from the British federation chief telling the refs...

    OT: Question for TV Streaming fanatics

    Does anyone know of a TV streaming device that supports WiFi 6? Hoping some of you are knowledgeable about TV streaming devices and the new routers. We just moved into a new house so we set ourselves up with a mesh system that has WiFi 6. I considered going to Spectrum's Gigabit internet which...

    Outshot maybe? Outhustled? Possible. But bullied? Never thought they'd be bullied.

    Kind of shocked that a team that is a lot less beefy would bully us around like this.

    OT: NBA Games

    Watching Boston v. Toronto. Tremon Waters has played about 15 minutes. He actually doesn't look the part. Hate to say it for a New Haven kid. Kind of weak all around. I don't know how he is in the league instead of Shabazz Napier.

    OT: KC Jones passes away at age 88

    KC was class. Watching him coach with all the cool in the world, I always felt everything was under control in any game. His players were hard-nosed sons of guns, and meanwhile KC would chill out. He was criticized back then as being kind of a cheerleader (which was weird because he didn't even...

    Hot Tubs & Inground Pools

    Well, since we have appliance threads etc. lap pools, I thought I'd ask about Hot Tubs. We wanted to get an in-ground pool for this summer, but every builder out here is backed up for 2 years (I would have asked about vinyl liner vs. fiberglass, but we'll get to that another day I guess)...

    OT: Favorite arcade game machine in the 1980s and where was it located?

    I had my go to places, a little deli in Allingtown, West Haven; a big arcade in New Haven on Center Street, between Church and Orange; but my favorite place was the Donkey Kong Machine in the T-shirt printing shop on the second floor of the Chapel Square Mall in New Haven. Here's a bit of...

    OT: Brady and his offensive line

    I've been saying for many years now that Brady has made his offensive lines look good with his quick release and command of the pocket. And now a line that almost got Jameis Winston killed is considered one of the top 5 in the NFL: Four games, five sacks: Bucs offensive line is off to...

    Name a song you played in the car that made your kids hate you.

    high intensive testing /screening required on college campuses (link)

    With baseball's shortened 60 game season, will there be those saying 60-80

    Celebrate the return to the BE--but I will never forget how the Presidents, Coaches, and ADs banned UConn in 2013

    Banned from the BET, though everyone knew the NCAA application was totally bogus. UConn was on its way out, so they stuck it to the school, even though UConn had been a very loyal partner to all the Catholics throughout its time in the conference. And they stuck it mostly to the players.

    Knicks and Spike Lee

    Apparently, Dolan has had enough of Spike Lee, and he isn't being allowed into MSG: I dunno, but it seems like a bad move to ban your #1 superfan. Wonder what Dolan is thinking.

    Point guard

    Who are we recruiting to really help lead UConn in the next several years? I was one of the ones defending Alterique in the big thread this week because I believe this team needs him this year. I've also really liked what I've seen of Gaffney, but I am not there yet thinking that he will take...

    Andre Drummond is the real board man (link)

    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/andre-drummond-is-the-real-board-man/ Basically the article uses stats to show that Drummond's rebound numbers are not only historical, but they are legit. He's fighting for rebounds at a very high rate, and that they are not flukey at all.

    Akok is POG with about 15 left in the 2nd half

    A lot of blocks, shots altered and even a few hoops. He is the biggest factor this game. Amazed to see such talent for our young guys. And don't look now, but Gaffney is coming on too.

    Welp, I'm now a bigger Serie A fan than college football fan.

    Napoli v. Sampdoria tomorrow is on at the same time as Pitt and Penn State, and I'll be watching the soccer game. This means Serie A moves into position as my #3 favorite sport/league to watch. After Patriots and UConn bball.

    In retrospect, UConn should have used its leverage in the new conference

    before it admitted new members. There were 3 leftovers. UConn should have said: "Join us and you get a big piece of all the exit fees. We are keeping our sports other than football in the Big East, and we'd like to invite Navy to be just like us. Football only. Other sports in a regional...
