Netflix just canned Luke Cage as well. Maybe Disney is keeping some scratch toward Netflix to cancel these shows so they can continue them on their own streaming service.

Politics And Current Events

Folks are aware that lots of Cuban and Italian immigrants were turned away either at the coast or at Ellis Island right and we didn't just let everyone in? Most of these caravan members seeking refugee status would be turned away at the border, regardless of who was running the show in this country.

They were waving Honduran flags and singing their national anthem. This isn't your garden variety acceptance of refugees in need, it is an invasion and abuse of their eventual host country imo.
Like when all those Cuban refugees invaded America?

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell on Netflix is very very weird. I like the overall idea of this dark cooking show with puppets , but the raccoon puppet can be very annoying. Also, who in a million years is going to make these horror food items? I like seeing her make them for the show, ...

Five day break to go from Toronto to Edmonton, three day break to go from Vancouver to Pittsburgh. Makes perfect sense.

The good ole days of the Jamie Dixon Experience. Six years ago this month began a journey that ended up being too brief for Pitt basketball fans, but, by his own estimation, much too long for former Panthers center Steven Adams.

Pens at Leafs GDT: Game 6

Would be nice for the pens to get a big lead in a game one day so Sprong doesn't ride the pine every 3rd period.
What's super annoying is that he's played pretty well and really seems to be focusing on responsible play.

I've been more critical of Narduzzi than anyone in this topic, but while the timing and execution of the fake punt left a lot to be desired, the idea was **** genius. Shoulda used it in the first half when it wasn't an obvious time for it.

The Pittsburgh #Penguins have recalled D Jeff Taylor. This is likely a paper move in order to maximize LTIR relief for Justin Schultz by getting their projected cap hit as close to the upper limit as possible.
