    RIP Jerry Stiller...thank you for lots of laughs over a long, long time...a real pro.
    Your Authur character on King of Queens was unforgettable.
    And Happy Festivus.

    Loved the way Arthur called Doug 'Douglas' and pretty much used the full name of every character.
    I lost it when he came up to Lou Ferrigno and said, "Evening, Louis."
    RIP indeed.

    Stiller & Meara are still one of the funniest comedy teams ever. They weren't fall down funny ... but their bits always hit the target.

    And Seinfeld was a great show, made far better just because of his Frank Costanza character. The guy was a pro. Rest in peace, man.

    The owners are presenting what is expected to be a somewhat one-sided, lackluster offer to the players union today in an attempt to bring back baseball. The owners and that cunty piece of shit Rob Manfred have attempted to use the pandemic as a way to lobotomize the sport almost from the sport. I do not have much hope that something gets done, but we shall see.

    One of the more disturbing things I've heard is that the proposal includes a 14-team playoff. Like most everyone in here, I am not a fan of expanding the playoffs, but to propose playoff expansion in a tight, shortened season just shows that MLB is trying to take advantage of the situation and isn't really concerned with what makes the most sense. If anything, shortening the playoff format for 2020 makes more sense. Fuck MLB.

    I hate expanded playoffs but I don't see how this is "taking advantage" of the situation.
    It looks like they're trying to make the best of the situation by getting in as many meaningful games as possible.

    Either way, it's a clusterfuck.

    CANCEL THE SEASON and hopefully Roberts quits before 2021.

    The
    FUCKTARD geniuses who run this hellhole county
    are extending the stay at home order for 3 months.
    Maybe they can play their games in Anaheim. I'm sure Artie would give Magic a minority discount.
    Enjoy the time off from MLB and check a couple extra personal goals off your list this year.

    I believe that we are over as a species.
    We've had our time, and it is drawing to a close. And it took no meteor strike, no extra terrestrial cataclysmic event, only a mutated virus that we can't beat no matter what we do.
    Our rights, our politicians, the CDC or the WHO, who we agree with or hate or excoriate will mean absolutely nothing...far sooner than we ever imagined it would.
    We can curse them and defy them or hide in our homes, it won't matter. We can all kill each other for one side or the other. Side with the man or rebel against them and disobey...it's all futility. Utter and finite.
    It's here.
    And nothing known to man or his religions is going to stop or prevent it.

    They are "taking advantage" because this season will include major format changes to accommodate the shortened season no matter what, so they are trying to squeeze in unnecessary changes that they wanted to make anyway. The goal of getting in meaningful games is always there, not just this year. The goal this year should be to get in as many games as possible. An extra week of regular season play is more important than an extra week of playoffs right now. Expanding the playoffs just seems low-priority to me.

    I, for one, would love baseball to start up again. Probably more than ever. It feels like this season will have an asterisks, but I don't know. I was too young in 1981, but (a question for the older guys) was the 1981 season looked down on as not a real season? I think once baseball starts up again it will feel more real, the wins, the championship, everything. A season is a season, and I hope we get one.

    its like the 60s when archie bunker thought the end was nigh but then it just became the 70's and he was stuck in disco hell.
    our hell is gonna be worse and probably be related to masses of people dancing in the dragon desert to EDM.

    I never got that impression. As a Dodger fan it was satisfying finally beating the fucking Yankees after losing to them in '78 and '79.

    I would only want it to start if fans are allowed in the stadiums, we get a 100 game regular season and the normal 10 team playoffs.
    Start for real or don't start.
    They won't start for real so I'm still in the don't start camp.
