Eh, Saints losing that game was def a bit of run good for the Giants, but nothing out of line at all compared to most Super Bowl runs teams go through.

you're right about this anyway. as they never really knew if they were coming back for another season, all of the finales were structured so that they could serve as a series finale, so i see what you're saying. but my feeling was always "hey this show is great, and there are more eps, so i can't wait to see where they go from here with it".

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Thing is, you can pick any endpoint of an event and call it extremely lucky or extremely standard. A 3 seed losing on the road to a 2 seed is standard. A team losing a game they had a 94% WPA at one point is not standard. But these are the same event-- so was it lucky or standard? You could argue either way, and you could argue that for every game, and it really just proves that in sports, as in poker and life, our perception of luck is almost entirely just that, perception.

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...-virginia?lite

West Virginia preacher Mark Randall "Mack" Wolford, who believed Christians should handle snakes to test their faith, died after a rattlesnake bit him over the weekend.



Wolford was bitten on the thigh about 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon, but he didn't come to the hospital until 10:30 p.m., a nursing supervisor at Bluefield Regional Medical Center told the Charleston Daily Mail. The incident occurred during an outdoor service at Panther State Forest, about 80 miles west of Bluefield in southern West Virginia, the paper said.

Wolford had turned 44 on Saturday. He had seen his father die of a snakebite when he was teenager, the Daily Mail reported.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I'm watching The Wire for the first time right now actually - so forum spoiler tags are actually helpful

Unfortunately they break on phone when they get quoted

I've become spectacularly good at averting my eyes @ spoilers itt the past day.

there's nothing wrong with just being considerate of others. i wouldn't have wanted to stumble upon Wire spoilers in a completely unrelated place.

I don't mind spoilers in or out of tags - I think the only one that ever pissed me off was the snape dumbledore one, because it was leaked before the release.

I'm not watching it for the plot twists really anyways. The acting + writing is good enough that I'd find about the same amount of enjoyment even if I knew the whole series.

Plus I wouldn't be opening this thread constantly if I cared, haha.
