I'm always impressed with the guys who set numbers--whether that be season totals, NFL games, NCAA BKB over/unders, or what have you. It's pretty rare for them to be way off.


I wonder how much the market affects these numbers. I think that Vegas adjusts the numbers if too many people are betting either the over or the under.

Yeah, undoubtedly. But they never seem to have to move the numbers much. If an NFL game moves a point that's a huge move.

Bearing in mind Brian's anecdote, if you buy me a beer I'll drink it but then eventually give it back to you. It'll be a good lesson to learn.


I can think of two meanings to this: urine, or Antabuse. The good natured ribbing would end depending on which you meant.

Go as what? The Kool-Aid man?


Oh I'm glad you asked.

For Halloween I'm going to dress up as Kurt Cobain and go as Trevor Plouffe after getting rugburn in the O.Co bullpen

I don't know how you guys can live Pacific Time.

You guys do realize that you are making the world wait for you people to get to bed!

My recollection from seeing a game there last year is that he really crowds the plate too.

My view too, even if he's Rickey Henderson on the basepaths. But Liam, the pitcher that day, was much too courteous to bring anything inside.

Don't get me started... The East Coast guys call those... Either 9AM Eastern Time for the West Coast or 1PM for Central time to enjoy. I'd like some food about that time.

Another Twins run scored via the power game: infield single plus error, followed by the usual drill.

We should come up with a snarky nickname that captures the Twins "offense." Anyone? Snepp?

The A's are probably playing a little tight, because they are in a race. Maybe that will help tonight.

Well, not that I'm especially playing can-you-top-that, but my wife and I worked for 10 years for a French company.

Then my last year at IBM I barely dodged the bullet of being partnered with somebody in Bangalore. That woulda been swell.
