Billy BeanE is not gay.\
Billy Bean (no ''E'') is gay.\
"Moneyball" is about the former, not the latter.
That movie looks awful
Ryan Reynolds must have turned down the role first.
Another anti-labor movie. One of the few wins labor has had is getting a piece of the professional sports pie for the players. Yes, they are overpaid, but they are the only mitigation in a violent monopoly intended to take the public goods of physical education in school and convert them into a free labor pool for a few rich guys who prevent competition and reap monopoly profits.
And here I thought it was about building a winning ball team on a budget using the less flashy but more productive stats like On Base Percentage.
tonight, when i can''t sleep, can i call you R4?\
and have you been posting a lot lately? i''m noticing on some threads a distinct number of humorless political watchdog posts. is this you?
Is that Kevin Costner at 1:45?
I can''t wait, love a baseball movie.
I love baseball. I love the whole Billy Beane story. Great book. I cannot wait. %0D\
Brad looks sexy. Maybe the sexiest 47 year old I''ve seen in a while. Will he be taking a shower with the team? Please.
I'm watching right now on the History channel. Brad looks pretty good, too. I want him in me deeply.
That movie was boring as shit. Looooooong shots of people getting ready, making coffee, driving and walking through the bowels of stadiums. Only Lost in Translation had more pointless moody staring. And Jonah Hill acting depressed and people said he was a good actor? No. And dear lord putting him next to Brad Pitt, it just made him even more painful to look at. I think this crapfest was nominated for Oscars. You bitches loved it.
Trite crap for straight men who would like to think that they are watching something meaningful.
Still can't get over Jonah Hill getting an Oscar nod for this.

Are you sure it was the History Channel, r10? I see that it is playing on FX this month.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
