    how/why do millionaires keep developing these NFL-lite leagues? They have to be a tax shelters because on what planet would they ever become successful to the point of turning a profit. Even if you took away every damn operating expense except salaries, I have a hard time believing they were in the green. Ever.

    I also watch 15 downs of football a year, so what do I know

    Nah dude you're right about a lot of things. It's hard to compete against long running monopolies.

    OTOH, that's exactly what the American League did against baseball back around the turn of the 20th century, and what the AFL did against the NFL back in '61. They succeeded but kinda got melded into the original leagues.

    There were some pretty good leagues in between. The USFL was pretty fun to watch, and were drafting some top picks out of the schools. IIRC the NFL was kinda puckered up about the USFL.

    Just goes to show you don't mess with the top dog

    After losing the opening game, the Rays have won 5 straight, in first place, and looking strong so far.

    Dude, the Mariners are 7-1 lol. They'd be 8-0 if our new "closer" hadn't blown a 2-run lead in the top of the ninth.

    Jeez don't the Rays have like 6 ex-Mariners? Like Zunino and Sucre and Brad Miller? Man last year we got Dee Gordon, Colome, Span and a few others. Mallex Smith is our starting cf and I think we got some others lol.

    So, I entered a bracket pool and spent no more than 5 minutes on my picks. Result, if UVA wins tonight I win it all if they lose, I take 2nd.

    Makes up for years of donating to these things lol!

    Some pictures I took at a Penguins vs Lighting game in Tampa about 10 years ago.

    After sweeping the White Sox the Tampa Bay Rays are 10-3 and in 1st place by 4.5 games in the East to start the season. Hopefully they can sustain this success. I had a feeling they would be pretty solid this year after finishing strong last year.

    Tiger was 1 stroke off the lead yesterday, and was leading the pack just prior to slipping down one and looked good from what I saw. Who’s rooting for this guy to regain his spot at the top? And who here hates his guts?
