Legacy? Rick Barry!

Other than writing checks, I'm not sure how much old man Angelos or his son have to do with the Orioles these days.

I am far less troubled about Russia conquering the world or influencing elections than I am about violence and terrorism within the US borders.
And you feel that climbing in bed with a dictator and tyrant is the best way to curb "violence and terrorism with the US borders"?

I'm not taking the 5th.  I believe Putin ordered the downing of the plane.  He can sue me if he likes.  I guess research isn't your thing.  Unless it's Breitbart.

Treats PUTIN blame as he does Trump blame  What does this even mean?  With each one of your posts it appears I've underrated how truly stupid you are.

He lasted as long as the Spain's Franco.

I think it's "overspending" if it's a mere rental.  Von Hayes wasn't even close to the player Machado is when the Phillies gave up their 5 guys for him.  And it also doesn't strike me that any of these guys reported going from the Dodgers are the types of prospect that Julio Franco was the at the time the Phillies gave him up.

Why can't DeRozan be primary ball-handler?  Why can't Walker evolve into that role?

If you're poking around the Washington Post and you want to get your blood to boil (I don't know, some folks do) read any of the columns by one-time small town newspaper editor, Gary Abernathy.  He brings the game of "what about" to new levels and is the worst type of apologist you'll ever read.  Have fun!!!!

Since you've apparently removed your lips from the President's rear end you have more time to do your own research on Putin's fun with planes.

Occupying Crimea, downing civilian airliners and killing political opponents is fine by Luee. It's not the Cold War anymore, dammit!

Good one.

In Helsinki, trump sounded like he’d just smoked a whole pack of yak dung cigarettes.

Donald Trump Is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.

In the Middle East forum in the old NYT forums, a poster told me when the [Hamas I think] guy in the wheelchair was turned into swiss cheese;

"Dead terrorists do not kill anyone"
Same argument used by pro-death penalty folks. Just substitute "murderers" for "terrorists".

Graciously turning down an invitation does not appear to be a thing around here.

Heh. We might have to start discussing the idea that Bambu is a Russian bot.
