Re: Playoffs! Playoffs!? ... MLB edition

Yeah, a lot of people are criticizing A-Rod for not showing up but it's not like the others are much better. Granderson's not hitting, Swisher's been awful, Cano has not done much either.

Re: Playoffs! Playoffs!? ... MLB edition

Go Yanks. Though realistically I don't know if they'll be able to pull it off. No comments on that ridiculous one game wild card idea? Sure, let's pit Atlanta vs St. Louis, even though Atlanta had like a 6 game lead over St Louis. So we have in the playoffs a team that didn't win the Division and di...

Re: Parlons Français ! [French practice]

What's the difference between par and pour? I thought pour was similar to the spanish "para" (for), as in "pour moi?" meaning "for me?" and par was like "por" (for). But I've been seeing instances where par would make sense but pour is used. Like for instance ...

Re: Parlons Français ! [French practice]

Deux and douze do sound different, but I meant when said with the word ans. Because there's the liaison, so to me, soixante-deux ans ends up sounding somewhat similiar to soixante-douze ans. Unless there's no liaison with the x and the vowel of the following word.
