    Baseball. Fun to play, usually pretty :tumbleweed: to watch. I'll catch a minor league game or two in Portland every summer, but the pro games are :turtleride:

    If they are going to allow umpires to call balls and strikes there is going to be a debate about balls and strikes...I want the K-zone up for every pitch. It never fails that when we get to the playoffs they will go for stretches without the K-zone and debate the pitch...just show the K-zone and end the argument...

    Yeah... but then you're getting into a "sketchy" area about the umps, etc, and calling stuff.

    Take the human element out of the game, which in my opinion is what's good about baseball. Some things just aren't worth getting technology into, to help. Balls and strikes is one of them.

    Ugh, tell me about it. The fact that the refs are stopping football games now to review a play drives me nuts. It stalls SO many drives now. The offense has momentum, they're going no-huddle and lining up to snap the ball to catch the defense on their heels, aaand the refs blow the whistle, stop the game, give the defense a chance to catch their breath and get organized while they review the previous play that was an obvious completion or an obvious first down. :rant:

    I can't stand that every scoring play and turnover is reviewed. If it's a close call, the ref is just going to call it a touchdown or interception just so they can review it.
    Coaches basically never have to even use their challenges anymore. Or, when they actually want to, they can't because the wind was blowing north to south and therefore is a non-challengeable play.

    No surprise coming from a Pats fan, although I don't know if I have room to talk as a cheesehead

    @Noelie84 Had that dentist appointment today. He pulled the one wisdom tooth that I knew was an issue, said the others are fine. Found two small cavities on other teeth that he wants to deal with next week, and x-ray the other side to make sure there's nothing he can't see there. It had been eight years--he said if I hadn't been so good about keeping them clean it would have been a bad situation.

    I was panicking that he was going to find a lot of issues and it'd cost me a ton of money, so it's a relief for sure. I'm mostly just disappointed that I can no longer say I've never had a cavity.

    Packers have been bitten by it a couple of times this season, since they're all about momentum. But I don't care what team it is, I'm seeing it all over the league. I'm not somebody who JUST watches Pats games; I'll watch pretty much any football game, regardless of who's playing (that's why I hate when the Pats have a 1pm game; I blow all day Sunday watching football because I'll watch the Pats play at 1, then roll into the 4:30 games, and then keep watching for the GOW). And FWIW, Packers are my #2 team. If the Pats aren't playing, go Pack.

    :rofl:

    You should be thrilled that after 8 years that was ALL you had. Guy I work with has been complaining for 6 weeks about how much one of his teeth hurts (he hadn't been to the dentist in about that same stretch, 8 years or so) and I finally convinced him to go. Needs something like 10 fillings and one of his molars is so far gone that they're just going to yank it because there's not even enough left to do a root canal.

    What was the deal with the ball girl? Isn't her job to get stray foul balls? Looked like her interference actually helped the Sox.

    Granted, the momentum killing pisses me off more with the Pats and the Packers because they both know how to push a defense off balance and run with it, but it annoys me when I'm just watching a regular game too. Just let them play! If the coaches want a review done on a call, they've got a flag for that.

    I do have one molar that had a crack for years that let go not long ago. He said the piece that's gone is just an outer layer of enamel and it hasn't impacted the root, but wants to build it back up because it's weaker now as a result. So, three things remaining I guess. Unless he finds another filling to do with more X-Rays.

    Either way, I'm lucky. He didn't act like any of it was a big deal at all.
