The team is owned by Nintendo. So, you have a very valid point.

Time to move east Jack. :lol:

I would love to trade the team for an NBA or NHL team honestly. I would do it in a heartbeat. Baseball is also my least favorite out of all. Give me basketball/hockey with a new arena & call me happy. :wink:

I can see a hockey team in Seattle. Not with you on the NBA. NBA was my favorite growing up as a kid till I fell in love with football. I can't stand the NBA anymore. I think I watched a total of 17 Celtic games this year, and that's it. Went straight to college basketball after football ended and now that baseball and horse racing is going strong now, I will by pass the NBA for the 5th year in a row. We already know who will win anyways.

I fully expect the Celtic to lose in the 1st round of the playoffs. No argument from me there.

I think 2nd round is more likely. ECF is their ceiling.

Way too soft of a team. No dominate front line players outside of Jay Crowder. Thomas will become a liability on defense come playoff time. They are a horrible rebounding team from what I can see. And Jarebko and Olynick are absolutely pathetic. Every time Olynick comes into the game, I change the channel. Can't stand the loser. If the guy played for **** he wouldn't even get a smell.

It's super early in the marathon so I'm not worried about the Astros bats quite yet, they'll obviously get it going, but let's not get to the point where we have to start relying on this guy:

I'd really, REALLY like to see Hamels get it going tonight. And by that, I mean no 20+ pitch innings. Way too much of that lately (including his last month+ in 2016).

Well - at least Hamels was good.

Of course, there's this little problem.

The team is 2-7. Similar start last year. It's been a pattern & not a good one.

I'm busy with Nascar and Horse racing at the moment. But the NFL draft is two week from tomorrow. Its time for some draft smack talk and just plain draft football talk again.
