Friday Open Thread -- Voight-Kampff Edition

Baseball is coming. Do you feel it?

Do you?

I don't. All this NFL controversy--the stupid Tebow trade ("He's just going to be a backup? Of course he's just going to be a backup, don't be dumb" and "Rex Ryan says bad words, but Tim Tebow doesn't like bad words!"), the Sean Payton "was it too harsh of a penalty?" bullshit--no one in the sports media is really talking about baseball. Maybe it's because I'm not much of a football fan, but holy moly--do people actually care enough about this stuff that we have to deconstruct it ad nauseum?

1. What's your take on the Sean Payton/Saints coaching staff penalties? Too harsh? Not harsh enough? Do you think all of the "I'M SHOCKED" reactions are overwrought or do you think that, though football is a brutal sport in which you're supposed to knock your opponent around, such coaching tactics have no place in sports? "I don't care one lick" is an acceptable response.

2. Name a movie people are often surprised to hear you've never seen?

3. Your predictions for Royals team leaders for the 2012 season in the following categories--include both the player's name and the statistical figure (min 400 PA/100 IP):

  • OPS
  • AVG
  • HR
  • ERA
  • Wins
  • Saves

4. What music have you been listening to most often in the past couple months? Why does it so intrigue you?

5. If you could greenlight the production for any movie's sequel, what would it be?


**BONUS** -- You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not with out your help. But you're not helping. Why is that?
