downloaded the OOTP 17 demo. really impressed with it. took me a while to really understand the basics, but after getting my feet wet, can't wait for the new one to come out. I think the demo expires in 14 days, so will just have to wait it out. but overall, a really cool game, cant wait for the season to start

This is way too addicting, by the way.

I downloaded the demo on Saturday and couldn't pull myself away from it.

I'm most surprised by how invested I've gotten in the computer-generated league with fake players. Takes a long time to learn your guys and how ratings translate into results, but then you start getting attached to them as if they're real...so cool.

I play the mobile version all the time. I'm up to the year 2188 in the 2016 version.

You mean "addictive."

I'm going to cry when Suárez reaches FA.

Yeah in a state that has whole tenses that nobody uses.

My girlfriend uses "might could," "might ought," and "might should," which are just brutally gross to me.

As in:

I might should swing by the grocery on the way home.

You might shouldn't marry her.

The thing that drives me crazy is not using the past tense for whatever you call a verb that modifies the noun.

"Process cheese."
"Ice tea."

And my all time favourite:

"Un-sweet tea."

You might as well start saying the Astros have Gattis as their designate hitter.

Finally won my online league.

Took forever. Definitely not the best team I had ever fielded, either. Got in as a wildcard, got hot at the right time.

Won again 5 years later. Same core, now on their big contracts.

The iOS version is so pointless.

Why do you say that?  I've been playing it for years and enjoy it.

I guess the huge mass of data and possibilities is what intrigues me. I don't want to squint at my phone for that sort of thing.

understood.  For me, it beats solitaire.  I don't have very many games on my phone, but when I'm stuck on an airplane it's a good time killer.   The in-game strategy is fun.

You should join my online league with Houston and GuyfromCO.
