  • How Trump Trusted The Laundry … And Got Moneyballed By Ted Cruz

    ARC ^ | February 2, 2016 | Dan Rowinsky, editor-in-chief
    Sometimes you wear the shirt. And sometimes the shirt wears you. The shirt has been wearing Donald Trump for probably his entire life. Why? Because Trump seems to always bet on the laundry. Trump came in second in the Iowa caucuses. He underperformed his lead in the polls by something like six points. Ted Cruz overachieved by a couple points with the swing big enough to turn Trump into the runner up. How did this happen? Trump has been dominating the polls and the national conversation since the beginning of summer 2015. Basically, it goes something like this: Trump bet...

    DENVER — Stephen Gostkowski kept pausing in the middle of his sentences, trying to hold it together and not cry at his locker. "I just feel terrible," said Gostkowski, the normally automatic New England Patriots kicker whose missed extra point ended up being a huge difference in the Patriots' 20-18 AFC championship game loss to the Denver Broncos. "These guys work a lot, all day, put their bodies and lives on the line and for us to come out here and lose by a point and me to miss that kick, it's a nightmare scenario." Tom Brady spoke in a...

    The biggest NFL mystery this side of Nebraska has been solved. Peyton Manning’s line-of-scrimmage hollerings are a thing of legend.

    Not too cold today. It is up to 35F here at 8500 ft elevation west of Denver. There may be some rain/snow toward the end of the game. I wonder if Patriots have been practicing at elevation to acclimate---probably. If the Broncos keep dropping the ball they don't have a chance. If they play well it could go either way. Got beer in the fridge.

Randle El, 36, told the Pittburgh Post-Gazette in story published Tuesday that he struggles to walk down the stairs and has contended with memory loss since announcing his retirement in 2012. “If I could go back, I wouldn’t,” the former Indiana University quarterback said of the sport that brought him roughly $40m in career earnings. “I would play baseball.

    I'm not guaranteeing it won't be New England - but 4 losses in their last 6 games is not a fluke. Of the others: it's not clear that Denver has a QB who can do it (Manning is old and hurt, but Osweiler still got benched for him); Cincinatti looks good in many ways but has managed to lose in the wild card round after 10 or 11 regular season wins in each of the last three seasons; Pittsburgh is inconsistent, having lost to the lowly Ravens just two weeks ago; and Houston just barely scraped in by winning a...

    The Patriots (12-4) just had to beat the Dolphins (6-10) to clinch home-field advantage through the playoffs. They couldn't get it done. Here's what we learned from Miami's 20-10 win: 1. The Patriots' offense enters the playoffs a complete mess. We'll see if a bye week and getting a few healthy players back makes the difference. Tom Brady only threw five passes in the first half -- the lowest single-half total of his career... 3. New England's longest pass to a receiver or tight end was a 12-yard throw to Rob Gronkowski.

    The U.S. opened the 2016 World Junior Championship with a stunning 4-2 victory over Canada by riding a three-goal third period. The game wasn't always pretty, but the Americans picked it up late to pull away from their North American rivals. The game's first four goals were scored by first-round NHL draft picks, with Canada's Mathew Barzal, a New York Islanders prospect, opening things up with a second-period goal. That was followed by Team USA's and Ottawa Senators first-rounder Colin White tying things up on a great effort to get to the net. Zach Werenski (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Dylan...

Let me explain. I don’t dislike football. But it doesn’t excite me the way, say, driving a tank or nearly crash landing into the Blackwater compound does (both of which I have done). I am obsessed, though, with the Army-Navy game. Maybe it’s because the teams embody sport in starkly military terms; or maybe it’s the cool uniforms. Who knows....

    MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - The group "Black Lives Matter Saint Paul" announced their plans on Facebook Thursday to shut down the light rail before the Vikings' home opener this Sunday. Sunday September 20th is the Minnesota Vikings home opener, big money day, so what better day to shut the light rail down and disrupt business as usual, they said in a press release. Enough is enough of business as usual! We must bring an end to white supremacy and the status quo. Black Lives Matter Saint Paul refers to an incident on Aug. 31 when Marcus Abrams, 17, "was beaten into...

    The creation of an accurate .22 Magnum autoloader has long been plagued by cycling challenges caused by the cartridge shape and construction. The long, skinny case has a lot of surface area and resists extraction. Extracting it while the gas pressure is high runs the risk of blowing out the thin case head typical of rimfire ammunition. Balancing these conflicting requirements was a huge technical challenge to overcome until the Magnum Lite. Magnum Research calls the action gas-assisted blowback, but it is not. Gas assistance uses a muzzle booster to move the whole barrel (as on a Maxim machine...

    One of televisions most sacred and central responsibilities is making sure they only display images that are right and appropriate for the viewing public to consume. Yet, judging by NBCs decision to not show the post-game prayer gathering of players on the field after the Patriots 28-21 victory over the Steelers in the Thursday night Kickoff Special, NBC clearly believes public displays of the Christian faith are not suitable for all audiences. It isnt as if the prayer didnt happen. Despite the heavy downpour, members of the Patriots and some of their coaching staff knelt and bowed their heads. MRCTVs...

    Shes so comfortable if not at home in the water now, its hard to believe Valentine Thomas once almost drowned in it. Of course, that was a half a lifetime ago, when this spearfishing maven from London via Canada was vacationing seaside with her family in the south of France. Just 14, Thomas got caught in an undertow not far from the shore, but far enough for a harrowing few seconds. I was caught by the underwater currents. The current had suddenly changed and I remember sticking my head up and there was nobody in the water,...

    Prompting media nonsense that he "compared Muslims to Nazis." Im glad I dont work for ESPN, because I dont know how anyone can understand the rules there. If youre an on-air personality there, are you allowed to use your personal social media accounts to express opinions about non-sports matters? Yes? No? Or, as appears to be the case, are you permitted to do so as long as someone doesnt arbitrarily decide after the fact that what you said was controversial and thus unacceptable? HTML5 video is not supported! That appears to be the trap Curt Schilling stuck his foot in...

    For about the 12th year, one of Free Republic's members is pleased to create a Yahoo! Pick'em Fantasy Football league. The league rules are simple: ** Pick the winners of each game ** Assign a confidence value to each game ** Post messages to each other on the message board that include bad puns ** Donate generously to Free Republic at the end of the season in the name of the top point earner That's about it. No drafting, no cash outlay except to Free Republic, and LOTS of Monday morning quarterbacking. It is a wonderful time waster that really...
