Re: Racing Season 2020 (Spoiler Alert)

That's very surprising, and I eat a big plate of crow!

Happy to see what Russell can do in that elite car. Bottas is definitely on notice this weekend, as Russell appears to be more of a threat than Vandoorne.

Re: Racing Season 2020 (Spoiler Alert)

There's no way in hell Williams will release Russell, despite his Mercedes ties. He's the only competent driver in that team's race and test lineup, the only one there on merit. Williams DESPERATELY needs to score some Constructors' points in the last two races to try and earn some badly need prize ...

Re: Racing Season 2020 (Spoiler Alert)

Anyone who complains about the Halo in F1 or the Aeroscreen in IndyCar is a blood-thirsty asshole after yesterday. The Halo clearly saved Grosjean's life. The next safety challenge for racing is a replacement for Armco barriers. They're so unsafe. One would think another alternative would have been ...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

Not to throw this off topic but any of you guys hear from Terry lately? We used to talk and game regularly and I know he got into sim racing big time but I've sent him several messages and I have not heard back and he is no longer on any of my friends lists etc. His absence in this thread is also a...

A lot of the fondness for Maradonna seems to come from his legend as kind of an outlaw.
True. And in this era of athletes as sanitized, packaged brands, sport needs more Maradonas.

Re: The Beautiful Game, Fútbol, Calcio, Footie Season 20/21.

RIP Maradona. One of the greatest ever, deserving of a place on footy's Mount Rushmore or Parthenon.

Sure, the Hand of God goal was one of the greatest ruses in sports history. But the guy was simply electric with the ball at his feet, with skills matched by very few players ever.

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

The global sales figures after six months will be interesting. My point is there's not as much compelling RIGHT NOW in the Series X/S for the discerning consumer who is platform agnostic. I'm not platform agnostic, so I''m committed to the X/S and want one as soon as I can get my mitts on one, espec...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

While I'm so embedded and happy in the Xbox ecosystem that I see no need to change, I'm not blind enough to admit Microsoft f*cked up by launching the Series X/S without a compelling lineup of next-gen games that wow and delight gamers. Right now, Microsoft's marketing pitch is, "Hey, spend $500 on ...

Miles Morales Spiderman, ditto with that and the new Astrobots game that’s included. So from reading impressions and reviews it appears if someon...

Assetto Corsa Competizione on sale for $20 for Xbox One. Grab it if you like sim racing games -- you won't find a more enjoyable sim to drive on a console, with controller settings that suit you.

Well if you want to go through all that fun again, the next Walmart online event is Nov 25th at 9 pm EST for the Series X. This time, it is due to high demand :D
At this point, I'd rather drag my bare balls through razor wire.

Re: Tetris Effect: Connected

I need to try this, Aristo style. :)

I had a Tetris phase on my phone about three years ago and enjoyed it. Think this might be just the "chill game" I need during the stress of the holiday season during a most f*cked-up year.

Thanks for the tip!

If I could order either machine through them right now and it said arrived Feb 2021 I'd be like ok. Truth is they w...

Ha, Wilk.

The over-under for online availability at 3 p.m. (ET), as set by the PK Sports Book: 20 seconds.

Sharp's advice: Bet the under. HARD.

I like the Nations League. Much better than friendlies, which are glorified exhibitions. If you're going to play a game during the season, make it meaningful.

How about Lance Stroll? He's got a heck of a feel in the rain, it was impressive to see him run out into the lead before fading due to the dreaded graining (from front end damage, they claim). Great drives from everyone on the podium, refreshing to see Vettel with a solid run. What about Lance Stro...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

Couldn't have been easier at Best Buy...walked up, showed my ID, they hand me a console. And my Microsoft order is out for delivery from FedEx...so, yeah. Got pretty lucky this year I guess. And PK - why is it a f*ck up by Sony and MS if they literally do not have consoles to sell? You can hype it ...
