  1. 12 miles mulling around various locations in Newport, RI last week. Made worse by the fact that I was lugging around a case of Moxie for the last 6 miles.
  2. Hi, I'm SI Subway. I was an (admittedly incredibly noobish) user here back in 2011, but it's been so long and the site's apparently changed so much that I might as well be new here. I no longer live in the greater NY area and my knowledge of recent MTA activity is limited, so I probably will end up more of a consumer of info than a producer. However, I still look forward to reacquainting myself here and being an active, positive member of the community. I've had much more experience on the Internet since 2011, so at least I won't be a complete idiot like before. Also btw if anyone's from Nationstates or the Super Mario Wiki, I'm New Matawan and Toad85 respectively. Just in case I happen to know anyone here.
  3. I came in here almost out of knowhere, and I'm leaving without warning. I hope you all remember me, if only for today. I may perhaps come back in the near future, or perhaps never again. I will start a thread so people may make a proper farewell.
  4. @ Shortline Bus: What about this opening? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL8nnMpV2Eo
  5. YAAAY! After his suckish last year, it's good that he is shaping up to be a mini-star. Who knows, he could just be the next Beltran (ironically, to replace Beltran). Agreed. Baseball should be more about strategy, and less about brute force. John McGraw taught us that. Why can't we have another 1890s Orioles in the Majors? It would make the games SO much more interesting to have a villain...
  6. I always knew PETA was crazy. Now I have solid evidence. Okay, let's listen to some Elton John while in the port-a-potty. Creepy... I want one too. It was confusing to me at first as well, so I'm don't mind that you think it's boring. You really need to watch the show from the beginning to understand what the heck is going on. At least it's better than Jersey Shore. Do you have a final date? I was in a condo in Florida the last 2 weeks, that's why I didn't post much. I'm back now, and postier than ever.
  7. If by "realistic" you mean more detailed, then definitely. But if you mean closer to the actual models used on the show in proportion and styling, then the Bachmann Models take the top, IMO. Plus you usually can get a much better price for a Bachmann over a Hornby, depending on the model.
  8. I hate snooki. In fact, I dislike the Jersey shore series in general. Big Brother is so much better.
  9. This is a fun game I found somewhere. Basically, you have to somehow take the throne from the person who posted before you. You can use and do anything, as long as it's clean and not extremely violent. Bazookas are ok, but anything bigger is a no-no. When you take the throne by the means posted in the first section, you are to post "throne get", to signify your authority of the throne. I'll post an example: "I throw a bottle at your head and you fall off. Throne get." Now let's do it for real!
  10. I dislike both options. 2 solves nothing and causes confusion, and 1 worsens the problem even more. I think that the games should be 60% in-division, 39% out-division but in-league, 1% interleague. Either that or 2% interleague. Interleague was, at it's start, a gimmick to increase sales. Leave it a gimmick, and have only 3-6 games per year be interleague. Not only that, but if I'm seeing interleague, I don't want to see Mariners-Nationals. The Interleague games should be between two teams that either share history or are hated rivals, like the Yanks-Mets, Phils-A's, Nats-Orioles, or RedSox-Braves. I also want to introduce something, I don't know if this has happened yet, but how about as part of the All-Star game fiasco, you have the winner of the MLB all-star game play the AA or AAA all-star winner. That would be interesting to see, and it would set the true MLB prospects out from the guys that just are good in AAA.
  11. That picture you just sent me is gigantic.

  12. Aww. Poor guy who I have never heard of before. I hate it when people bully overrated players, look what happened. I am happy overall with the mets, but not "thrilled" as you say. I am, however, suprised. If the mets keep up their momentum, and this may be a stretch, but they could end up 2nd in 2013! As 7line said, that could only be decided by interleague play. On a somewhat similar note, I hate interleague. Aside from one or two series that are Mets-Yankees, Cubs-WSox, Phillies-A's, or another historical and/or hated rival pair, I want to abolish it. It detracts from the All-Star Game and the World Series, no wonder why they both have fallen in attendance. The two WS teams might have already played each other in the regular season. BTW, what did the MLB use for the home field advantage before the ASG win crap? This isn't soccer.
  13. ART!!!! (Disclaimer: art not mine, I think it's by some guy named Leo)
  14. I actually have no problem with Rowdy. He fills the spot vacated by the great Darrell Waltrip: the stubborn, cocky, loudmouthed, winning, young gun who can't get any serious respect. Guys like Kyle are, as hard as it is to believe, good for the sport. Not only do they keep other drivers on the edge of their seats when they see him in their rearview mirror, they give fans something to do, whether they love them or despise them. Next up: Indy! Pick your driver, and if your pick gets the closest to the win, you get a million dollar prize! (not really). I'm going for Jeff Gordon, just because of his past success here.
  15. Aren't the "new" (and I use that term loosely) R46s coming in the near future? Why does the SIR have to suffer the indignity of having hand-me-down cars while the NYCS gets brand new R160s and R142s? Anyway, great pics!
  16. I do! I do want ducky! w00t w00t w00t w00t w00t! Just a question, but what does w00t mean? Goodbye, cruel world... I miss him already. Over 100,000,000 views!
  17. This multi-quote has been brought to you by Blockbuster. Yes, we still exist. Somewhere. Nope, I use it too. Definitely agreed. I've seen that too many times before. Milledge, Schneider, Glavine; they all went to rival teams. Please let Beltran go somewhere obscure, like the Angels or the Giants. No. Just, no. The Wild Card exists for a reason, and you're forgetting the point of it. Central and West fans would go ballistic, and we would never se another Giants-Rangers series like last year. Is this football? No. Should you be judging baseball ratings by football slots? No. Should there be equal distribution of television time among all teams, baseball and football? Absolutely. I actually kind of like that idea, but only if the divisions are tighter than they currently are. I mean no interleague, limited division-crossing games; at least 75% of all games would be within the division. I honestly don't care much for interleague (unless it's Mets-Yankees or Cubs-WhiteSox, but I digress...), and I think that it is widely overused. Each team should only have one interleague game per year, preferably against a rival. No one, by any means, should be wishing another person to die. That is rude and spiteful, and I will have none of it on this supposed-to-be-family-website. Regarding umps and bad calls, if they make one, then so be it. If it can legitimately be proven otherwise, they should get a punishment. Instant Replay is a good idea, but it takes away the human aspect of umpiring. Umpires may not be perfect, but they get it right most of the time. Could you see a manager like Billy Martin screaming at the videoboard?
