Re: the BEER thread

This is laughable. Smaller American breweries produce insanely good IPA, tripels, quads and stouts. Lager (and pilsner, dunkel, doppelbock, etc) is actually one of the few styles where I generally...

Re: US Supreme Court overturns gay marriage bans; SSM now completely legal

Pretty mind-blowing when you consider that thinly veiled homophobia was probably the vote getting wedge issue for the GOP just a decade ago. I still remember thinking that gay marriage seemed like...

Re: Top Spin 4 yet to sell 1 million copies WW, will we see Top Spin 5?

Some shitty play from Fed at the end of the set to go with his shitty mood.

I honestly have no idea how Nadal would do against Fed off clay right now. I'm certainly not predicting a likely Nadal win against Fed in Basel, just saying the matchup problems are still there and...

He played there last year with an operation looming and significant rust. I wouldn't read too much into his aborted comeback results from 2014.

Title wins in general are still still improbable going...

Stan has two slams to that group's combined total of zero. There must be better ways to troll Stan's supporters. :lol:

I'm not gonna get into a pissing contest here since I think both have had fine careers, but Stan has a truly legendary drive OHBH and that alone would have secured him a nice legacy.

Well done!

I played Magic for a few years as a kid and I do remember the card quotes occasionally being as random and funny as these are. :lol:

Nadal admitted to not having a fifth set in him for last year's RG final and didn't seem at all match fit for much of this year's AO. He's missed significant time due to injury and simply hasn't...

They really do look quite comfortable.

Anyway, Fed looked even worse in his garish/clashing colors. Nike did a poor job with both him and Nadal at RG this year.

Because they've gotten significantly older in tennis years since they were regularly playing back to back epics? One more so than the other, but still.

Re: RG Semi-final: IF Nadal gets there, who has the best shot: Murray or Ferrer?

Against this year's Nadal, Murray. Previous years I would have said Ferrer on clay (though neither would have ever stood a chance against Nadal at RG) but Murray's game is better suited to absorbing...

Re: Courier: umpires should stop giving penalties on critical points

I wasn't referring to Nadal's position on time violations but rather the position of an average fan (ie, me) or a commentator (ie, Courier). Nadal's treatment of a quality ump like Bernardes is poor...
