  1. It's probably as "outside the box" as any show/movie I've seen. There are so many "wtf just happened" moments that all somehow work. Really weird stuff. But I love it. I also love the fact that it's a drama. And really good at that alone. But when it wants to be funny, it's probably better at that than most other comedies. The Barbershop episode is one of the funniest episodes of TV you will ever see.
  2. Curtis Pride was. The man was deaf.
  3. Atlanta is amazing, and Donald Glover has more talent than any one man should have.

    Lions 2018 Schedule

    I don't think you can just not include the preseason wins.

    I'd like to see how many 1-0 games in the 6th inning end up being either 1-0 or 2-1? My initial thought is not enough to warrant bunting that early. But who knows.

    How about nothing before the 7th inning...

    This only further proves 337's point. It's more about playing for a good team than a good manager.

    Having said that, I would love to see a study on whether or not "psyching up" players even makes them better? I'm positive it would even make some worse. I just don't buy the notion that a cheerleady manager can make his team win more than an extra game or so per season. It's cool in movies though...

    IMO, it's not about whether he can "psyche up" his players. Yes, athletes probably play better when adrenaline is at play (though it can also hurt them, but that's another discussion). The problem is, players can't be "totally psyched bro" for all 9 innings of 162 games, plus playoffs. They are humans. In a boring game, they're not going to be excited. When the game is on the line, they will. This is the case with every player no matter who the manager is. You can't cheerlead the players to be excited in a boring game. The manager just isn't going to make a big difference there. Getting a couple guys on in a tie game in the 9th will. Just my two cents.

    We've seen managers do a lot of dumb things. We learn over time that it isn't the right strategy. Use them when you need them for as long as you need them.

    That's why we don't use one game to scout hitters.

    Extended outings when you need them >>>>>> being available when you don't. Use them when you need them. You may have a couple 7-2 games the next two days. It happens all the time.
