Weekend Open Thread

I didn’t have much time to read anything this week — Retro Week posts take longer to research and write than regular posts — so I don’t have any links to pass along this weekend. I do recommend checking out this series of articles by the MLB.com reporters. They asked various GMs about the trades they most regret. Brian Cashman said … you’ll have to click to find out. Fun series.

Friday: Here is tonight’s open thread. The Knicks and Nets are both playing, and that’s pretty much it tonight. No college hoops. Talk about those games, the trades the GMs regret, or anything else.

Saturday: This is the open thread again. The Islanders are wrapping up their game right now and the Nets are playing tonight. There’s also a whole bunch of college basketball on the schedule too. Have at it.

Sunday: For the last time, this is the open thread. As you know, the Super Bowl is tonight (Panthers vs. Broncos, 6:30pm ET on CBS). The Islanders are finishing up their game right now and there’s some college hoops going on too, but once the Super Bowl starts, that’s it. It’s the only game in town. Enjoy.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Two weeks from today, Yankees pitchers and catchers will report to work in Tampa. Baseball’s getting close. Among the players already working out in Tampa are CC Sabathia, Andrew Miller, Aaron Judge, Jorge Mateo, Dustin Ackley, Mason Williams, Luis Severino, Bryan Mitchell, Michael Pineda, Aaron Hicks, Ben Gamel, James Kaprielian, Rob Refsnyder, and Nathan Eovaldi, according to Steven Marcus and Erik Boland. The first Grapefruit League game is a little less than one month away. I can’t wait.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Knicks and the three local hockey clubs are all playing, plus there are a few college hoops games on the schedule as well. Have at it.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

We are three-fifths of the way through Retro Week and I’m still hoping to post a Retro Week themed mailbag on Friday. We’ve gotten a few retro questions but I’m not sure how many I can actually answer. I may be biting off more than I can chew. Anyway, the email address is RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com. Fire away.

This is tonight’s open thread. The Nets are playing and there’s a whole bunch of college basketball on the schedule, and that’s about it. Talk about any other than politics or religion right here.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

Day two of Retro Week is in the books, though the Greg Bird injury has thrown an unfortunate wrench into things. As a reminder, I’m hoping to run a Retro Week themed mailbag on Friday, so if you have any old school questions, send ’em too RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks in advance.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Knicks and all three local hockey teams are in action, and there’s some college hoops on the schedule as well. Talk about those games or anything else here.

Monday Night Open Thread

Did you enjoy the first day of Retro Week? I always forget how much fun it is until I start researching and writing the posts. I’m hoping to do a Retro Week themed mailbag on Friday, so if you have any old school questions, particularly relating to the 1996 season, send ’em to RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks in advance.

Here is your nightly open thread. The NHL is still in their All-Star break but the Nets are playing, and there are a few college basketball games on the schedule as well. Discuss those games, Retro Week, or anything else right here.

Weekend Open Thread

I didn’t have much time to read this week, but all you basketball fans out there, make sure you check out Lee Jenkins’ profile of Kristaps Porzingis. I don’t even like basketball and I enjoyed it. Also, I had an itch to watch some Curtis Granderson highlights earlier today, so he’s the weekend video. Enjoy.

Friday: This is tonight’s open thread. The NHL is in the middle of their All-Star break, but Porzingis and the Knicks are playing, as are the Nets. There’s no college basketball on the schedule though.

Saturday: Here’s the open thread again. The NHL All-Star Skills Competition in on tonight (7pm ET on NBCSN), plus the Nets are playing, and there’s a bunch of college hoops too. Have at it.

Sunday: This is the open thread for one last time. The NFL Pro Bowl is on tonight (7pm ET on ESPN), if that’s your thing. The NHL All-Star Game and its fun new format will be on as well (5pm ET on NBCSN). The Knicks are playing and there’s some college hoops on the schedule as well.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Got some site news to share: next week will be Retro Week here at RAB. There’s a whole bunch of nothing going on at this point of the offseason, so why not look back at the good ol’ days? This year is the 20th anniversary of the 1996 team, and that was the first championship club many Yankees fans witnessed, myself included. We’re going to focus on that 1996 team on their 20th anniversary. Retro Week always seem to go over well. Should be a blast.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The NHL is in its All-Star break, but the Knicks are playing tonight, and there’s some college hoops on the schedule too. Talk about anything and everything here, except religion and politics. Thanks.
