Are you mad?

It would appear, Crewe, that I am very sane after all, haha.

I'll be rooting for the Nats, but only because it'd be cool to see them win their first. I hate that the Stros have our number, but they're one of the more respectable organizations and rosters in baseball so I wouldn't be upset if they won either.

Yeah, there's some douchey bits for sure (OLD SCHOOL FOOTBAW!!!!), but I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic. Seeing those old TV visuals and what-not only brings back pleasant memories of easy Sundays growing up.

This reminds me of those early 00s Angels teams that just owned the Yankees every postseason.

This series is over.

West coast plus cool job means I can watch from work.

Unless MLB doesn't have a backup umpire available, but hey, that'd never happen for a post-season game.

Forgot to do this yesterday and tried to get in on time, but looks like OK-Tex already started by the time I made my picks.

I agree. And Murphy's law kicks in....and as a fan, you are begging the announcers to stop talking about it.
I notice how no-one talks about the defense letting Atlanta march down the field and tie the game.

My dad. "It's ok Mike, he hasn't missed a kick all year." I remember it like it was yesterday, right there in that living room. I think I stopped talking to him for a bit, haha. I was like 11.

As a young boy, I was a Vikings fan.

1998 NFC Championship - Minnesota Vikings vs Atlanta Falcons.

This will be my only contribution to this thread, but I see your ALCS choice, Crewe. -_-

Poor Gary :(
And that ALCS choice wasn't a personal dig ;-) and, conversely, I put my tears out there as well lol. :D

Honestly, I'm not sure how many I have or even remember that can be an "epic" collapse (and even that Vikings one is ONE missed field goal, but also, that's the reason why it felt epic because it was the ONLY missed field goal that year).

I think the cancer thing definitely makes Walt more sympathetic than simply "I need money for x," but I do understand your point. It's basically a mcguffin and not really much of a plot point.

Also, ++ on the Hank thoughts. I HATED Hank when I first started watching. By the end, he was my favorite character (yes, even more than Jesse or Mike, but it's close. It's CLOSE).

Kinda like Crewe, although I've been trying to find some I like. Fiancee listens to My Favorite Murder and "And Thats Why We Drink." MFM is good if you're into the true crime, murder type things, but it was better earlier on. The later episodes, as they get more famous, become extremely less focused and it's annoying. Thankfully ATWWD doesn't have that issue, and their gimmick is they do one true crime story and one supernatural story. Saw them live here in Seattle because she wanted to go, was a good time.

I was listening to QAnon Anonymous for a bit when I was busy watching those guys spin up, but since 8chan was taken down and thus no more Q, they seem to be less of a growing threat than they were and I fell out of interest. Still, if you're into, basically, at the end of the day, cults, it may be a fun listen to see how one starts and grows and captures people.

Now, I mostly listen to You Must Remember This, a podcast about old Hollywood. I was in the middle of it before taking a detour with QAA, it appears they've actually removed it from Google Play, which is odd, but left the 12 episode special on Charles Manson, which I just finished today and was incredible (it was this special they did on Manson that first got the podcast on my radar).

Otherwise, I have some I'm subscribed to but have only listened to once or twice. Write Along with David Chen and C Robert Cargill seems like one I'll definitely be listening to more as time goes on, but that's obviously a pretty specific topic.

99% Invisible is kind of cool, it seems like it started as a quick, almost PBS type thing as the earliest episodes are about 7 minutes long (and literally about a minute of that is an ad at the start), but it covers how little things came to be made, like revolving doors or mailbox flags.

The Next Picture Show is the writers from the defunct film site The Dissolve (one of the greatest film sites to ever exist, I miss it every day), discussing movies. They'll take a new release (say like, "Ready or Not") and compare it to a similar film (like "Clue"). If you're super into movies like I am, I can't see why it would disappoint.

And lastly is the History of English podcast. I've only listened to the first episode so far, but evolution of language is something I want to dabble in more, so I will be continuing (it was a pretty neat listen, but I find niche subjects interesting often).

Admittedly loathe to promote Barstool but the Gridiron Heights series is fantastic. Each episode is about a minute, and that's pretty much what keeps it fresh. The latest episode is absolutely a triumph:
