  1. I'm just glad the house of cards fell down. Seriously *Censored* the Cardinals. Congratz Boston, and that's not something I say often, but they have a great team, 'll always prefer them over the Yankees, and the beard theme was pretty damn cool. Gratz on the Series Sox!
  2. Soo, so ya think you can tell... Heaven from hell... blue skies from pain... Well, it was a good run Buccos. Best season in the past 21 years. Hats off to the Pirates. I just wish we didn't have to go down to our nemesis the Cards. I can't believe I'm even saying this, but lets go Dodgers... for this next round at least, maybe not the world series though.
  3. Bucs on a roll! Jolly Rodger getting Raised back to back since that awful game on Friday. Pirates even bounced back from a bad call tonight where Russell Martin threw a runner out at third, but dude got called safe. Oh well, all's well that ends well.
  4. It's not that the Reds suck. They had a decent run this year. It's that sometimes you just can't *Censored* with destiny. The Pirates are the sons of destiny right now, and from my perspective thank God for that! Ya know, it's like that Tom Petty song... "You don't know how it feels..." The Pirates were so bad for so long that just making the playoffs seemed like an impossibility. I mean we stopped even joking about it. You know it's bad when the cynicism dips so low that even being satirical and sarcastic about how bad your team is stops being entertaining. Up until a few years ago, that was all we the Pirates fans had left, was comedy skits and songs on local radio stations making light of bad management and losing Jason Bay. Then even that stuff stopped being funny. The team that once helped save a city alongside the Steelers in the '70's wasn't even interesting enough to be a laughingstock. We Are Family was dead... it was more like We Are Farm Team. .500 ball wasn't even close to a reality for many years, until management began moving things in the right direction, bringing in Clint Hurdle (a coach who ya know, actually wants to win ballgames) a few years ago and ownership finally started spending some money here and there, then things finally got interesting. Now Cinderella isn't even the word for the Pirates. This feels like escaping Shawshank, it's that type of redemption! What was the vibe like in Pittsburgh while Jason Bay was deteriorating in New York? Sympathetic? Hilarity? Good question. Honestly, if I recall, I'd have to say the vibe was just Apathy. I don't remember anyone being real angry with Bay. I sure wasn't. I think everyone wished him the best. It was not like with Bonds where Bonds turned on the city and everyone hated him, and then laughed when he got caught up with the roid scandal years later and such. Everyone loved Jason Bay and wished him well. Fans were mad at the ownership because they only put asses in seats with gimmicks like free t-shirt this or free Bobblehead that, or fireworks nights, never with winning programs. In fact, they got so good at turning a profit with a weak team that it became painfully obvious that under previous owner Kevin McClatchy, that trying to field a winning team wasn't even vaguely part of their agenda. Spending money on trying to build a team around Jason Bay, they seemed to feel was bad for business. Oh, of course they wouldn't admit it, but the writing was on the wall. Once Bay left, fans just assumed the trend would continue anytime we got someone worthwhile, that we would develop them and then sell them off to the highest bidder. But the new ownership, managerment and coaching did a welcome 180 and they did in fact build a team around Andrew McCutchen, and the rest is history, now we just advanced a round in the playoffs!

  6. 21 years of pain hopefully comes to an end tonight. I'm biased, but I know that there are legions of people around the globe rooting for the Pirates tonight. Because they are currently ultimate underdogs who were once a legendary franchise. The Reds are also a legendary franchise. I mean hell if I recall, the Cincy Red Leggins were the first professional baseball team. The Bucs and the Reds have had many great games over the course of MORE THAN A CENTURY. While tonight may not be the Big Red Machine vs The Lumber Company (the Reds vs Bucs match up of the '70's), it is a meaningful game between two teams with a ton of tradition and historical value to baseball. (Fun fact, the Bucs and Reds played the only Triple Header of the past 100 years, it was to end the 1920 season) But bar trivia aside, these are important teams, and it's important to recongize a sport's teams importance.. to it's own city, to the fans and to the sport itself. Both of these teams are important teams. But the Reds tend to be at least pretty decent every year, while the Pirates have struggled for 2 decades. So the Pirates need this win more tonight. They have the momentum, but since that first wildcard round is just one fatefull game, they almost need to win to cement this season as a success, even though just making it this far was a huge deal. Destiny better shine on the Pirates tonight, because there is no better story for the 2013 MLB season than the Buccos winning the Series. That would be magical both for Pittsburgh fans, and fans of baseball in general! It would be like Oakland A's Money Ball type of magic. Speaking of, the A's are another important franchise, though one that has fallen on hard times throughout it's years. To give an example of an unimportant franchise, I'm going to cross sports here just to state one that is very obvious and hard to argue with. The Jacksonville Jaguars. This isn't meant to direct hatred toward them. I just feel that to illustrate what an important franchise is, it helps to also illustrate the opposite. The Jags mean literally nothing, perhaps less than nothing to the NFL in general or the State of Florida for that matter. Tampa has probably twice the fans that the Jags have and the Dolphins have probably 3 or 4 times the fanbase that the Buccaneers have. Plus about 4 college teams: Florida, Florida St., Miami, and Cenral Florida all have larger, more diehard fanbases than the NFL's 90's expansion team the Jaguars. Nobody is gonna shed a tear for them when they are playing in LA or London or Canada or wherever fate takes them in the next few years. Because win/lose/or draw they just are not important there at all. They probably have zero future hall of famers as well, MJD was good, but not that good afterall. But it would be a grave travesty if a team like the Pitt Pirates or the Cincy Reds moved to another town, because of the great tradition they have bestowed upon those cities for again over a century. Anyways, game is starting soon: LETS GO BUCS, LETS GO BUCS!
  7. La Potencia, I just want to say, your signature is God-Tier. Also, finally, the Buccos are going to the playoffs after a two DECADE drought! It's basically official at this point that the Pirates are in and a young generation of Pitt baseball fans will finally see Bucs baseball in October for the first time in their lives.
  8. The first Hangover was really good man. The sequels were definitely shit though, no doubt about that.
  9. I liked the Dark Knight Rises also. I don't know why people had such a hard time following it. I thought it was paced really well actually. I enjoy the Ironman films too. RDJ is the perfect Tony Stark. And fufu isn't here anymore to make 20 replies going on about how much he can't stand him. Kick-Ass is great too. I gotta see the new one. What is interesting about Kick-Ass though... is that even though the theme is "what if people actually tried to become Superheroes" I think it's actually less plausible in reality than Dark Knight or Ironman. All 3 comic films, when you think about it, feature mortal human heroes without superpowers. I honestly think that in real life, some extremely rich guy like Wayne or Stark, armed with a ton of technology, could actually pull off some type of superhero gig. Not quite like Bats or Ironman, but they could pull off something. But a highscool kid and a little girl, wearing costumes and killing grown men, in melee combat no less... no chance. Still makes for an entertaining movie though. I didn't like it either. Mostly because I don't like the director, Brett Rattner. Dude did all those stupid Rush Hour movies (never liked those, that is probably unpopular movie opinions right there. I know lots of people think they are funny, but I can't stand Chris Tucker, he's annoying as hell). Rattner has such a shitty attitude, and I swear his goal was to strip Mageneto of his powers and kill off the Professor and all that, just to prevent anyone else from picking up where he left off with the series. The one scene I thought was cool was the conflict in powers between the Phoenix and Logan. But the story leading up to that was weird, and yeah the film felt rushed. He doesn't strike me as that much of an actual X-Men fan either. Oh well, because of his ruining of characters... and the fact that nobody wanted to continue the story arc of the first 3 X-Men films... we got unique stuff like First Class (which was really good despite the inarcuracies to the comic world) and now Days of Future Past is on the horizon as well.
  10. Anna Paquin is exactly the type of girl that makes me miss the old thread. Because Anna just doesn't do much for me. Now this is more like it! I love me some SJU!
  11. ^ Maybe. I just don't really like the Fantastic 4 as characters much. I always rooted for Doom in those comics. Reed is such a snobby prick and he looks like he should be in a Just For Men, Touch of Gray advertisment. Sue is kind of a hollow character too... though Jess Alba filled out that body suit nicely, that was one of the only good aspects of the Fan 4 films. Human Torch is cocky and annoying and the Thing is just dumb. I know the 4 get such acclaim for being part of Stan's early work, but I just never loved those characters like I loved the Avengers or Spidey, Hulk, or the X-Men, or many of the villains, especially Doom.
  12. Very much agreed. I love the good Doctor, that much is well documented. I'd really enjoy seeing a movie about Doom's origins from his perspective. As you may know, Victor views himself as the "good guy" at least to an extent and justifies his atrocities as having a greater good (in his own mind) type of effect. I don't think Hollywood would ever invest in portraying a Super Villain as the main protaganist, but I honestly think it could work well in today's market. Afterall, look at the success of Breaking Bad. I definitely think that some audiences are ready for not just flawed protaganists but a comic book villain as the main character. But I don't know if all audiences are on board. I think much of the overseas market might be confused as hell and not really sold on Doc Doom as the main character of a big budget summer blockbuster. But I know that I would mark the *Censored* out if anyone ever made that film! I know that a big, stupid, orange, rock monster's days of Clobberin' Time would abrubtly come to a brutal end if I were in charge of said script.
  13. That was hilarious. I'll tell ya what, Matt Harvey has a lot of poise on camera. Most athletes couldn't be as laid back and good humored about that. He seemed very natural... if he ever does throw his arm out like that kid warned him about, he might have a career as a news reporter lined up.
  14. That's quite awesome. I was not expecting someone to post a dwarf. I don't have a thing for midgets or anything, but that women right there... well she is about... the right height for something.
  15. Daniel Craig is the best Bond. I thought Anchorman was really really bad. Like I can laugh more at an episode of Two and Half Men I've seen a million times. What the hell is a matter with you on both accounts? Anchorman was among the only comedies of the past decade that I really found incredibly funny. All this hangover shit gets old fast, but Anchorman was a classic, man! A true classic. And Daniel Craig is the WORST Bond. Craig has zero charisma. Anyone built like him could be Bond at this point. The James Bond franchise is a sad, shell of it's former glory. Anchorman blows. Hangover's pretty shit too. I feel like Anchorman was really trying to be funny, but it just didn't work for me. Daniel Craig is a badass. Absolutely nowhere near the worst. How can you say he has no charisma? He has a different type of charisma. No one before was as good as Sean Connery, but Daniel Craig is a different kind of great in the role. QoS wasn't that great, but Casino Royale and Skyfall were. Aside from that awful Skyfall song. Daniel Craig may be a badass, but he still comes off more as a dumbass. Yeah he's the SECOND worst Bond. Only because there was one other stupid Bond, I can't remember his name though and he was just a one off. Okay, I looked it up, it was George Lazenby, that guy was the worst bond, Craig is second. I could see Tim Dalton being argued as second though. I'm pretty sure that Craig's different type of charisma... is no type of charisma. Connery was the best, then Moore, then Brosnan who was really great as well. Those are the only 3 real Bonds in my humble opinion. Although David Niven was awesome too, even though he was just a one off as well. Also, I loved Anchorman... I don't care what anyone says, that is staying on the list of all time fav comedies right there! That's not unpopular. Especially the original... everyone loves the original Back to the Future. The sequels will get and do deserve mixed reactions, but the original is legendary, I don't think anyone would even argue with that much.
