    That was a fun game to watch (and I felt that way even before the Jerebko tip). Until tonight, the Jazz were the only team with a winning record against GS over the past two years.

    That's interesting, UT, and thanks for the link. During the descent, as they called out things like "1201 error!," my wife leaned over and said, "I wish I knew what was going on." "Me, too!" ...

    The oldest was a precocious 8 when the movie came out, and perhaps she poisoned the well for the five who followed as I believe her opinion is shared by all.

    It was a very well-liked movie but my kids loathed it, and still make jokes about the young empress and that flying dog (or whatever that thing was). From their perspective, the film was aptly...

    I'm around 90% British Isles and not even a whiff of Latin America. But my Jewish and African heritage looms large in my life.

    Correct, because that's what high school and other tracks were composed of, or so I was told. I believe "thinclads" has also been applied to those who run competitively.

    And note that "cindermen" isn't a reference to firefighters. I liked sportswriters of old who would come up with endless synonyms for routine sports terms.

    lol at Trump who has bragged for decades about being able to have any beautiful woman he wants for free, and yet paid a "horseface" $130,000 for having had sex with him.

    lol. I typed "ironic" first, but decided it wasn't worth the trouble. So I replaced it with "interesting" despite the word "interest" appearing clunkily four words later. Sad!

    Very dumb, and yet those who are most critical are those who give Trump a pass on vastly more plentiful inaccuracies about his own self-promoting declarations. I've been mulling over the reasons...

    His enunciation of that final "Come on.... Ted" at the 0:27 mark is brutally condescending. I approve.

    I'm impressed that Mangum is lively on the sideline, talking up the players, etc. It would be understandable if he were sulking but he's showing considerable class.
