    Problem is, it's only a strategic error if their strategy is "satiate as best as possible the existing demand for your product." If that's the goal, then the cities they would look to put teams in...

    Seattle with no arena? That's a hard sell.

    Now, Quebec, which is already building something, should have a team announced right quick, but the NHL has never, to the best of my knowledge, expanded...

    Agreed with all of that, but I can see the NHL having a different perspective on the timing. Columbus was always going to need a lot more lead time to become successful than any Canadian franchise...

    Atlanta's bigger issue was that the ownership group was tearing itself apart. Moving the team to Winnipeg was a stroke of genius (the Jets should never have left, and would never have left if the...

    3 years. It's closer than I had thought; I had it in my head that Ned was 8-10 years older than Jaime; he's actually 10 years older than Tyrion.

    He doesn't necessarily have to be on the list. The only reason I mentioned him was because the closest things we have to reliable narrators in the story all exalt Selmy, Dayne, and Hightower as the...

    I think the issue here is book vs. TV. Sweetrobin's name in the book is Robert Arryn. In the series, his name is Robin Arryn.

    In a duel, in his prime? Barristan the Bold. The only characters even mentioned in the series I might take over Ser Barristan would be Arthur Dayne or Gerold Hightower. (Or a dragon, because duh.)

    Michael Vick without the dogfighting signed what was, at the time, the 6th-richest contract in any sport in history.

    This is a great policy! It means we won't have to play O Canada before hockey games, which will be a real time saver. And just think how much stronger our winter Olympic teams will be!

    If more people in positions of power were as possessed of the spirit of generosity as this man, the world would be a far better place. For that matter, an America where people can afford the basic...

    A very good point. Honestly, Trevor Noah's a better standup than Jon Stewart was.

    It remains to be seen if he's as good a faux journalist as Stewart is. I hope so, because this is a better place...

    If you want to pour your time down the drain, and you have an interest in sci-fi, watch Doctor Who. (Obviously, if you don't care for sci-fi, you can skip this.)

    I also want to include Maxwell Smart, but you ruled out main characters.

    It's not. He's blown both ACLs in four years. On the bright side, he recovered fully from one, which leaves me hopeful for the other.

    Anyway, provided he recovers fully, I think the Eagles will be...

    Kind of short on words here. Rest in Peace, Mr. Spock.
