  1. I'm a vegetarian by proxy. I like my vegetables to be processed by cow. Or pig. Lamb's fine too...
  2. I dunno if it’s changed, but the Monday line at Westgate for Carolina had us at 80-1. https://www.sportsline.com/nfl/odds/futures/
  3. If this is a thing you're interested in: October tickets for the London production of Hamilton go on sale tomorrow at 12 noon GMT. If you're going to be in London for the game anyway and have a free few hours, it could be a cheaper way to see a permanent production of the show vs NY (or the soon-to-close Chicago version, which some say is better than NY).
  4. The NFL has weird rules about the radio broadcasts and online streaming. Some stations have contracts that allow them to stream whatever/wherever. Other stations have contracts that only allow streaming of the game within a specific geographic area. Some only allow streaming from the desktop and not over mobile devices. Example: I've had success streaming WBT through the Panthers app, but not through the WBT app/site. And sometimes the other way where the Panthers app won't stream but the WBT app will. I understand why picking up the video stream could be wonky (Verizon has had a lock on the NFL mobile video), but I don't see the harm in letting the radio broadcasts roam free.... especially as streaming will never be real-time (it's going to be anywhere from 30-60+ seconds behind live, which makes listening to the stream while watching the game at the bar a bit annoying)
  5. I KNOW! entertaining radio is entertaining radio. Plus, it's Jake. We'll figure it out
  6. https://www.si.com/more-sports/2011/02/04/super-bowl-saturday "We hear this each year," said league spokesman Brian McCarthy. "The concept of playing the Super Bowl on a Sunday has worked well for 44 years and we don't anticipate moving away from this tradition. Fans expect to see the Super Bowl on a Sunday, the day on which 89.2 percent of NFL games are played." Could a Saturday Super Bowl be successful? As the NFL's former senior vice president of special events, Jim Steeg worked on 26 Super Bowls during his tenure and is now a well-respected sports consultant based in San Diego. "Most people for the Super Bowl come in Friday and go home Monday morning," Steeg said. "I remember seeing a study a couple of years ago that said the average length of a stay at a Super Bowl was 3.3 days. So people pay for four days and stay for three. If you switched it to a Saturday, that one less day could decrease revenue, which might not be good for the local community."
  7. From Dec 2018: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/roger-goodell-explains-why-the-super-bowl-wont-be-played-on-a-saturday-anytime-soon/ "That [idea] has been around for a long time, people have talked about that," Goodell said of moving the Super Bowl to a Saturday. "The reason we haven't done it in the past is simply just from an audience standpoint. The audiences on Sunday night are so much larger. Fans want to have the best opportunity to be able to see the game and we want to give that to them, so Sunday night is a better night." With the game on a Sunday, the Super Bowl has produced nine of the 10 most-watched television shows in history.
  8. The NFL announced that Divisional Round games that are played on Sunday will now start at 3p ET and 6:30p ET instead of the old times of 1p ET and 4:40p ET. This brings the play times for the Divisional Round more in line with the Conference Title games, and also makes it a bit more convenient for the West Coast fans to watch. [An an unrelated note, the "singleheader rule" has been lifted, so each market will have the opportunity for three televised games on FOX or CBS each week. With the Panthers almost always playing at 1p this year, chances are this won't really affect any out-of-market viewers who were subject to the whims of local TV programming decisions, but we'll see how that goes] https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/22/nfl-changes-start-times-of-sunday-divisional-playoff-games/
  9. and obviously having fun, which helps. A happy locker room is a winning locker room
  10. I took a tour of PGA Tour Radio's HQ a long, long time ago. At the time, the studio was basically a TV tuned to whatever match was on, and a microphone so they could describe what was on the screen. And yes, the hosts "whispered" as if they were on the course.
  11. And not the first time, either. Here some other Panthers questions... http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6218&highlight=panthers Here at Bank of America Stadium, the Carolina Panthers, led by this quarterback, qualified for the Super Bowl in 2016 Sir Purr: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4817&highlight=panthers http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1619&highlight=panthers This Panthers QB's 85-yard pass to Muhsin Muhammad on Feb. 1, 2004 was the Super Bowl's longest ever play from scrimmage Wesley Walls! http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=2079&highlight=panthers
  12. From https://www.gq.com/story/real-life-diet-christian-mccaffrey this morning: McCafferey doesn't eat chicken, tuna, wheat, or soy. Example meal: Mondays for breakfast, it's just egg yolks (no egg whites). Then sweet potato hash with oats and maybe fruit. Lunch: bison chili with potatoes mixed in. Maybe it has peppers and vegetables in some sort of a stew. I like soups because they’re so easy to eat. Dinner: steak with sweet potatoes or avocado, and I always drink lots of water. I go through at least a gallon-and-a-half of it a day. I'd say a lot of that is in the morning, too. I’ll drink half of a gallon before I do anything else. Cheat foods: cool ranch doritos. And oreos.
