  1. Liverpool's defense has definitely improved with Virgil, but you still always expect to see them screw up somehow. I actually like Man City's defenders, but they also seem to manage to screw up big time in stretches. Stones looked tremendous until he got hurt back in November, then looked like crap when he returned. City still have the fewest goals allowed, but I guess that is what 75% possession will do for you. Looking forward to watching City vs Swansea on Sunday; I don't think Guardiola will allow them to let up even thought they've wrapped up the League. Could score a lot of goals now that the pressure is off. I do think Liverpool will be a serious contender next year unless Salah is lured away.

    Went for the Manchester Derby hoping to see City wrap up the Premier League at the match. What a letdown in the second half of that match . . . and horrible refereeing. Also saw the second leg vs Liverpool. Wasn't expecting City to win, but it could have been game on if they hadn't ruled that second goal offside. Do I recall correctly that you are a Liverpool fan? Good luck in the semis against Roma . . . calling it the Boston Derby! Well at least City clinched this past weekend thanks to Man U!

    England is stealing our spring!!! Was in Manchester a little over a week ago - mostly 40s and 50s with clouds, rain and drizzle. English seasons in seasons. Enjoy London!

    Will opened the door a crack, Jerry barged in, and then a bunch of us old-timers followed him!

    Remember August 75 well. It was between my junior and senior years at URI, and as usual I worked summers at my father's package store in Riverside, RI. Big store with a big cooler, and by closing time I think the only cold beer we had left was crap that no one ever bought . . . but that night they bought it. Store had very high ceilings so it was always comfy with a nice cross breeze when the side doors were open. That was the only day I ever remember that it was unbearable inside. After closing at 10, went over to the Lum's (remember them?) in Seekonk and drank cold schooners until the wee hours. I seem to recall that places were allowed to stay open later than normal. Next day (back when package stores were closed on Sundays) headed down to Scarborough Beach and baked; not as hot as Saturday, but still brutal. The good ole days.

    Mentioned this to my wife as we were watching. Made no sense considering the headwinds. Final rain total for my house in Randolph was 3.02. Some of those afternoon downpours were insane, but at least we had very little wind for once!
  7. If I left home this morning and there was no snow and the roads were dry, and I get home this afternoon and there is no snow and the roads are dry, did it ever really snow?
  8. You're old enough to remember this . . .
  9. Not sure what the BBC uses for their forecasts, but here is what they have for Dublin thru the 15th. https://www.bbc.com/weather/0/2964574
  10. Another battleground month is on tap! Will we have a true month of Napril to compensate for the month of No-Morch? Will the forecasts of DIT, Snow88 and Blizz24 win against logic and rational thought? Will miserymist win the day over peepers and petunias? So far, all we know for sure is that I don't want snow on the 5th and Bob doesn't want snow on the 13th! Everything else is TBD! Discuss amongst yourselves . . .
  11. OWD is 67/58 as of noon! The mosquitoes are probably out in that swamp already!

    Enjoy the Guinness! I'll be downing a few pints and pies in the pubs of Manchester in between football matches.

    Sorry, but you have to wait your turn in line - I put in my request for all clear on the 5th first!
