Surprising almost no one, the Chargers decide to move to LA.: There's yet to be a final announcement, but the Chargers are pretty much set to return to Los Angeles (they played their first season there before moving to San Diego) for the 2017 season, where they will join the Rams in their new stadium as lease-paying tenants in Inglewood, expected to be completed for the 2019 season. In the meantime, the Chargers are expected to play at either the Coliseum or a 27,000 seat facility in Carson, somewhat limiting their immediate ability to cash in.

Wait till Lion I. sees your post. The two of us will be pounding nails into a stuffed wolf doll dressed in red.

Well, that's just a normal Tuesday.

Cackalacky Trump doesn't really have much of a ring to it either.

Fernando Tatis Jr.'s grand slam draws ire of manager Jayce Tingler, Texas Rangers

If the Rangers had to play ~10 times a year at Coors Field, they might not assume 7 runs is an insurmountable deficit either.

I say that with my favorite team at 5-2 and having apparently successfully escaped Arizona, but no, I'm not biased.

I think the League should have made teams police themselves from the start by having the following policies: 1. no make-up games for COVID reasons. 2. no divisions, playoff spots go to top 8 teams in each league. 3. standings determined by wins alone. 4. daily testing by MLB of teams 5. if your team has more than some number of cases of COVID (let's say 4) once the playoffs start, you forfeit your series.

New Texas Rangers Ballpark Looks Like an Aluminum Barn

I would like to hear the story of how overbudget the building depicted in that rendering ended up being.

There's a snip of Paul Goldberger's comments on the stadium in the link - he's not just some guy mouthing off, he's been the architecture critic for The New Yorker and The New York Times.

Washington Pork Belly Projects - the Hogs cheering section makes more sense than ever.

I heard "Radskins" on the Dan LeBatard show this morning and I kind of want it. Have a skateboard on the helmet or something.

Hanging everything on it being a JOB is what struck me as well. We have regulatory standards for workplaces that are normally hazardous, like OSHA, but now pretty much any job is hazardous and I don't mind employees deciding that the proposed safety regulations don't quite cut it.

OK, but if you knew that if you drafted Ryan Leaf, you would then be able to draft Drew Brees? And then draft Eli Manning but actually get Phillip Rivers instead? It all balanced out.

He looks like the kind of guy who would go to the Meijer on Knapp or in Cascade.
