Green Bay Packers v. Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau tonight.
I find it a bit heart-rending to watch the young, pre-season, fresh out-of-college or walk-on players playing thier asses off and showing off; hoping the coaches are watching them and wants them on the team.
That final cut down to 53 players is cruel.
I know. I'm such a softie.
Bears start tonight, too! It should be clear that another season is over by the middle of the first quarter. At least we have the Cubs!
My Baltimore Ravens kicked Tampa Bay's asses last night in the pre-season game. And Joe Flacco was looking gorgeous. Too bad his bromance buddy, the sexy Dennis Pitta, is sidelined for the season.
For me, it's all 'merica waking up after dull months of bs and gittin fat. Now there's something to care about.
Della, you must not have Time-Warner cable. Those of us in Green Bay with T-W didn't get the game because of the ongoing dispute.
I still miss it. What they're giving us right now is not real football.
I'm immersed in the drama of baseball now. Keep the football away a little longer. It's still the middle of summer, for chrissake!
COme on Carolina Panthers!
So stoked for football. UNC vs SC tonight!
Can someone start a thread about the baby momma whore and former college basketball star Brynn Cameron? Her first baby daddy was quarterback Matt Leinart a couple years ago. She just gave birth to her second child, and the father is basketball player Blake Griffin. I will say, she has great choice in men. Check the link:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
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!
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...
