So between summer of 2015 and summer 2019, Marvel is going to hit it HARD leading up to massive Avengers 3 (that may start with full civil war, perhaps with Spiderman in the middle; see them set things aside to beat Thanos; and end with cross bones shooting Steve Rodgers "dead") With Captain "dead," Thor heading back… » 10/15/14 10:08am 10/15/14 10:08am

While the bubble may pop, the quake won't pop the bubble pushing this issue. The market rate housing is both generally newer and more likely to be properly insured against the quake. Whereas the older affordable housing is more likely to be damaged to the point that it makes sense to start over or at the very least… » 10/14/14 11:58am 10/14/14 11:58am

Comment in an interview about wanting to be on a league with the NBA TV deal aside, Fox makes the most sense, right, as: he'd draw traffic to their ghost town website, where he could have massive control and poach Grantlanders as their contracts come up; oversee and manage Fox Sports TV documentary division; his and… » 10/09/14 4:26pm 10/09/14 4:26pm

I think, perhaps with the exceptions of Thor III, that nobody will stand alone in any upcoming movies. Maybe Hulk in GG2. I would expect to see several existing players and perhaps another addition in Captain 3 like Black Panther. If the rumors are true and Avengers 3, with may feature Iron Man, Vision, Dr.… » 10/08/14 9:08am 10/08/14 9:08am

So, NBA may not opt out of the CBA in 2017 (solely for the strategic blame reasons to follow); NBA players opt out looking for 55% and to saber rattle on issues like max deals; that makes the work stoppage a players strike and not a lockout by the league, which Adam Silver and ESPN will parrot every day and say that… » 10/07/14 3:55pm 10/07/14 3:55pm

Good story. As to paragraph 4, implementation pending appeal doesn't make the appeal moot or almost moot. It means the unconstitutional law will be in effect until the appeal(s) are heard. That's horrible, but the appeal of the stay and the underlying the appeal(s) are different issues, standards, and hopefully… » 10/03/14 3:05pm 10/03/14 3:05pm

As the podcast ran with the "motherfuckers" already bleeped out by Grantland, I think it's a stretch for others to call it profane. I know many people including the author clearly know this. But many news outlets botched this point. The podcast never ran with any obscenities actually being said. Not bitching… » 10/03/14 2:48pm 10/03/14 2:48pm

It's a stupid homecoming vote. The students have put a modicum of thought into the meaningless annual tradition and want to elect a same sex queen and king presumably some want to make a point about their state's bigoted take on this issue (among many in AZ). The school is responding by saying - damn you kids and… » 9/30/14 1:17pm 9/30/14 1:17pm

Look if people want to be upset with Hope, my list is: (1) the last round of photos that hit the web. You are doing that wrong. Those were not keepers; (2) married Stevens; (3) much cooler sounding fake name; (4) seems like an odd duck; and (5) maybe how the media is covering this messy story. » 9/22/14 12:53pm 9/22/14 12:53pm

It's chess not checkers. ISIS exists because terrorists are telling recruits they must stop up from invading and conquering and this is The Crusade 2.0. Our response cannot be to play world police and extend this 13 year conflict in the middle east into two decades. That's like pulling weeds, while planing seeds… » 9/18/14 12:07pm 9/18/14 12:07pm
