    When the Wind Blew: a P&S Open Thread

    It definitely could be done. Start with the different types of people involved: reporters, producers, anchors, disc jockeys, engineers, and others. What would it be like covering the buildup in a major city, or the buildup and aftermath in a small town? Since Cleveland survived, what might...

    The complete Countdown to Looking Glass (an NCIS/DCU crossover)

    I apologize if this is spam, as it's not intended at all as such. This is an update. I still want to continue this work -- but events at work, and the mental and emotional stress from the events of the past year, have often put me in a place where I don't want to touch this or anything else. I...

    Protect & Survive Miami: End of Watch

    Of course, in a post-war economy, not only do you need a population with enough disposable income to support colleges and universities and their athletic programs, and buy tickets, concessions, etc., but yo. u need some corporate/business support for those schools and their athletic programs...

    Protect & Survive Miami: End of Watch

    Can't help but comment on the rest of the Southeastern Conference. Kentucky: I had Lexington surviving in two P&S TLs I never could get off the ground. The city itself turned into a madhouse, though, due to overwhelming numbers of refugees and the state getting fallout from the midwestern...

    The Iron Age of Comics: Jim Shooter's Return to Marvel

    BRING BACK THE LEGION! I can only imagine the uproar, at that particular time, from the LSH fandom over permanently eliminating the team and continuity. Still, the news of a Legion movie with JMS as the lead creator should calm the fanbase, a bit.

    I agree...assuming Pat Riley going to Miami wasn't butterflied away. I think the Knicks, Celtics, Sixers, Nets, Lakers, and Heat would've been in play. Miami and Los Angeles would be the two markets outside of the northeast he might realistically have gone to; LA only for Jerry Buss, though...

    I edited it out but I did have him leave for the NBA after the '94-'95 season. What else can you do as a coach after winning the national championship, unless you intend to be at your school for a long time and become a dynasty? Pitino never struck me as having that ambition; he was going to the...

    Sports What Ifs.

    In 1988, the United States Football League settled with the National Football League. The terms of the settlement involved the NFL paying the USFL's legal fees, paying the nine owners (the Chicago Blitz returned for the final season in 1987) a "generous" amount in compensation in exchange for...

    Here's a quick one: Kentucky beats Duke in the 1992 NCAA East Regional final (men's basketball). Four possibilities: 1. UK beats one of its archrivals, Indiana, in the Final Four and plays Michigan in the championship game (sorry Cincinnati fans; I don't see the butterflies favoring you in the...

    The Bandits were the new kid in town. The Bucs were established enough to keep from being overwhelmed by the Bandits, especially since the NFL version ended up a different breed of cat than its free-wheeling, popular predecessor. The USFL’s Wikipedia page for its never-played 1986 season...

    That was proposed in the TL. Dallas would never agree to leave the NFC East, and lose games against the Redskins, Giants and Eagles nor lose the foothold into the U.K. Market that the Monarchs provide, no matter how much geographical sense it made. Plus, the Cowboys had more leverage in...
