Last year I pretty much didn't watch much honkball, might be like that this year, too.

not really sure which team to be into, the cubes have really been wearing on my nerves lately, almost everybody I care about is gone.

Baseball has EVERYTHING:
⚾️ Lines
⚾️ Brown
⚾️ fast ball

it had everything. By move 9 they were out of book. They struggled a bit in the middlegame, but they eventually got into a situation where Magnus was likely to prevail: a theoretically equal endgame where Magnus has all the winning chances. So he could just grind all day if he had to. And he did. Until he won.

seriously though today's game was... wow. I basically got up when it started, idly watched on my phone while getting up, put on some commentary as I was getting ready for work, checked in while teaching, followed along as I rode the bus home, and then listened in on commentary at home while working all afternoon... a long tour de force.

I would just note that I currently have an undefeated record against Magnus.

oh nooooo my coach-a-rino. he was an instituuuuuuution

I dislike the business of college football and will criticize the whole thing on those grounds, but I'm not going to criticize anybody for changing jobs. Your job doesn't own you and you don't owe it loyalty. Shakespeare got to get paid, son.

hot take: if Cleveland had won the world series in the 90s, Kenny Lofton would be in the hall

Welcome to! Allpro is a place to discuss sports, sports related things, etc. General stuff is fine (if you're watching the game with friends, you don't *only* talk about the game after all), but try to keep on topic.
