Re: 2020 NBA Season

NFL, 3,5 wasted hours to watch 12 minutes if action.
The only "pro" sports I watch are racing (F1 and dirt track racing), along with an occasional Eagles/Wentz game.
Ah, yes, racing. Sit down in a bubble and don't forget to turn.

I do that every day, morning and evening.

Re: PSU QB Eason transferring to MVSU

Was he the starter? No, Alexander is the starter. Eason and Alexander both came in after Kuresa graduated and both were given the opportunity to start. Eason had some good moments, but also had a tendency to give up on a play too quickly and take off running. Then Chapman transferred in from Rutger...

Yeah. MSUN is apparently building an on-campus stadium, but I'm not sure when it's supposed to be done.
Never watched college football in Havre. When I was at Rocky, Northern wasn't playing football. I watched college football in Dillon. That was bad enough. :lol:
