Good description of my lack of reading comprehension. So, what, exactly, did you write that I misinterpreted? When making accusations, you should probably be able to back them up, don't you think?

I agree. I was very surprised to hear that as well. It certainly makes the harshness of my original statement wrt 21% a bit over the top. I still think they are better than 21% but not by as much as I thought originally.

I like Brady and Pats and Heat, Brady went to Michigan and it is hard not to like one of the greatest coaches/franchises of all time. Even just from a stand back and appreciate way.

Plus Tom Brady's hobbies include knocking up super models and that is just bad ass.

Yeah, now that I know that 80% stat on game 7's at home, 45% is ridiculous. I do think it's better than 21% though.

The public will overreact to the Miami win from last night so that's why the line is that way.

I don't know better than anyone else, or the line makers, but the line makers don't predict what they think will happen, they set the line at what they think the public thinks will happen.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Probability Heat win tomorrow is somewhere between miracles can happen at any time and 7%.

<---- Remaining on the: glass has been knocked over and broken and I am too afraid to love again for fear of the pain because I can not stand to be let down again Side of optimism. Especially with Doc giving praise to Lebron, oh **** we in trouble.

1. The Cardinals are AIDS so I can't root for them.

2. My old man wrote a book on Tom Brady and found him to be a generally pleasant person, plus friend of ours are friends with the Brady family and they are all solid.

3. I am an elite frontrunner.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

FWIW - the owl was an intentional attempt to troll people. Honestly, outside of maybe occasional punctuation differences, I display the same lack of NBA knowledge that I always did in SE. Although it's always comforting to have Goodie stampede into a thread to remind yourself you're not the dumbest guy in the room.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

kc - i think you stopped posting in OOT years ago (or maybe you never really posted there at all) - the owl was a gimmick account LFS used a lot to troll people. Then I did. Then it got perma-banned. Tup was not a fan of the account.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Let's not mince words, The Owl was TOTAL AIDS. Al is well above replacement level though obv, which is why it was so hard to connect the dots.

kidcolin absolutely posted in OOT for at least a short period - he cast some sort of tiebreaker vote in the rj-diebi.tter survivor. And even if dieb.itter is a bit of a spammer with a suspect agenda, it's still unforgivable that kidcolin's vote retained rj, who was a total loon who wrecked every thread that didn't involve headphones.

No idea who this Owl fella is either.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Celtics were really cold yesterday and Lebron was on fire even by his standards.
I dont look for the Celics to be really cold 2 games straight. Lebron should cool down a little also. Heat have edge because their playing at home. Rondo could neutralize that if he has a ridiculous night like in game 2 or game 7 of the eastern semi's.

this is some great OOT historian work. I even got an undertitle for it.

And yeah I did for a while maybe 3-4 years ago. I think Al knew that, hence "stopped posting in OOT".
