Hawk has lost his might. Time to retire old guy. Now the guy I grew up loving in the 90s.
That was brutal...

I've never been a big Stone fan. He's a very, very smart guy, no doubt. He just comes across as too whiney for me.

Same here. Only bought CI this year because it was like $50 or $60. Will definitely be paying the full amount next year if I still have cable or a dish that offers it. It has been awesome. Not only that, but I know for a fact I've gotten more than double my money back by just staying in the house many nights using it to watch hockey, and not going out to the bar or whatever.

I went to a Braves game lately, with tickets in the players family section or whatever... And there were a ton of scouts by us, at least 5 within 6-7 seats in any direction. They all still scouted "old school" style with a radar gun of their own, stop watch, stuff like that.
