    The Official Thread of the New York Yankees - 2021

    In corporate America, making one's boss happy is what lead to job security, which may or may not be rellated to making one's employees and customers happy. Heck, I know several companies where making the boss happy is the ONLY thing that matters. Guess the Yanks now fit that mold :(

    True, they need someone with a good foot to step forward on set pieces. They are critical in CONCACAF qualifying on the road where the US had few quality chances with packed box, poor field conditions, and a dozen balls thrown aroudn by the ball boys.

    The biggest concern is Dest is that in his position on the field, he needs to work just as hard going back to cover as he does going forward to goal and he can't afford to turn-off from time-to-time.

    Now, that is an odd location. Not even on the main retail strip in Ansonia. With Roseland nearby, it's going to be a tough sell.

    The Official Thread of the New York Yankees - 2021

    I despise all 4 remaining teams for a range of reasons. Was hoping for the Giants, primarily because they're not the other 4 and I love AT&T park. Guess I'll focus on UConn hoops and my abysmal Fantasy Football team instead.

    Biden visiting UConn on friday.

    Where did Marine One land? In '95, they used the old baseball field. With soccer, baseball, and softball using turf, a helicopter would make a mess.

    Big East Expansion?

    Agree in St. Louis. St. Thomas out of MSP is new to DI, but is amitious and fits the model and adds a good size market. Davidson could be a good fit, basketball oriented in a new and large market.

    I was on campus when President Clinton visited. After running into Secret Service guys with long rifles in the elevator, decided it was time for a road trip.

    Hoping for Penn St. v. UConn, though in the same pod. The winner each year takes home the silver ice cream scoop.

    CONCACAF is a joke. The big whigs pad their pockest, but won't spend money on VAR for each country's national stadium. The refereeing is abysmal. And the shi! that goes on at these games, especially when the US visits, should get these countries banded from hosting international games of any...

    It's FIFA, the US will be assigned to the one stadium whose AC is broken.

    Dest's skills going forward are proven and getting better. What he needs to work on is getting back to play defense.

    This pod set-up makes sense from a football standpoint. A 4th automatic confernece game would be a rivalry game, like Ohio St v Michigan and Minnesota v Iowa, etc.

    1) The B1G will not add WVU, sorry boys. 2) Even I thought of going to a 'pod' system with 16 schools a while back, so nothing special there. 3) The B1G won't raid another conference, especially the ACC, yeah right. If UVA called the B1G tomorrow, they would be in the confernece by the...

    Odor had more So than hits in 2021 (100K's v 65 hits) and has been that way since 2017 with 2019 being a highlight reel of making wind (178 K's to 107 hits). Yeah, I get he's a left handed bat, but that has no value when he K's more than he puts the ball in play striking out nearly 1/3 of his...

    Had corp tickets to to Knicks game a few years back at MSG and John Starks was there. My youngest son, who is basketball crazy, eventually built-up the nerve to talk to him. They chatted for a bit and then my son asked what he could do to get better. Starks asked him if he played soccer, the...

    Stanton is living in the Red Sox's head right now. Last night's game was just crazy with the good and bad plays. Sox still have a leg-up on the Yanks facing the Nat's and O's to close out their season while the Yanks have the Jays and Rays.

    Pre-Covid, I've spent a lot of time in England for work, primarily London. Overall their food is bland, But, certain pub's do a better job than others with their staples, such as streak & ale pies and fish & chips. I stay a lot on the Knightsbrigde area of London due to where everything is...

    Beer

    I had a lot of 1664 when I studied abroad in France. Everyone in a while I will see it on the menu in the States (I think the last time was at a Yard House outside of Philly on the Jersey side of the Delaware). To me, it's an easy beer to drink, just not distinctive, which fills a need.

    I played against Hamm in a friendly, co-ed scrimmage in college once as a CDM. I was a fair HS player and could have made a DIII team if I went that route. In College, I was in really good shape and could run with her and thought my strength would at least allow me to reamin on the pitch with...

    Back in '19, I caught a reglar season HS game featuring Cohen and Favieri. Just on what I saw from the mound, Cohen had a bit more rip to his pitches than Favieri, but he was a bit more intense on both good and bad pitches whereas Favieri was a bit more in control with his pitches and his head...
