  1. Re-watched the Force Awakens twice yesterday....The more I go back to this film, the less I am impressed with it. Each scene is very nostalgia heavy, and the film does a terrific job paying tribute to what Star Wars is about all in image. One could write a book demonstrating it scene by scene what the film is calling back to in the classic movies. 

     

    However, as beautiful as a film is, it don't make up for lack of storytelling. Essentially it's a New Hope 2.0 in it's framework and Abrams and company played this VERY safe. Why does the Empire still exist 40 years ago blowing up the death star and killing Vader and the Emperor? Why do the rebels still act (and look) like a rag tag team of partisans opposing the bigger established system? If anything, the rebels should be the ones in power now and whatever is left of the Empire should be scattered and weak. 

     

    After further thought on this, I wish they would have went with more original EU material to make up a story. Timothy Zahn's book and the character of Thrawn alone, could have inspired a much better film.

      Nah, think of it like this. The rebels now are like if a random group of Mercenaries and soldiers got together and decided to go fight a Guerilla War in the Middle East (before the rest of the world started intervening in there of course, so like before the Gulf War). The Rest of the the (new) Star Wars universe doesn't consider them enough of a threat to start meddling in their affairs. Except this group of mercs/soldiers is led by a veteran of Vietnam who realizes that this has happened before and is trying to stop it from happening again.

  4. I know it's preseason, but going 0-4 is a little concerning.

  5. Lionel Messi... Absolute class. Nothing else to say.

      I'd agree with you if you're talking about the US. But I was born in Argentina and cheer for my Albicelestes.

      Tomorrow Greece will hopefully get the win. Being half Greek and half Argentine I am always conflicted at this time of the year.

    1. Gabriel Alexander Morillo

      Gabriel Alexander Morillo

      Don't be fooled by how crappy we played them. Washington should be easy if George can guard Wall.

  20. I believe our best situation right now for the draft is to trade down.

    1. Gabriel Alexander Morillo

      Gabriel Alexander Morillo

      I would disagree. If we trade down our chances of getting a guy who can come in and contribute goes down significantly.
