  1. It's fitting that Goran Ivanisevic is Djokovic's current coach. That Boris Becker (who might not have been a "heel" during his active time, but damn, he said did A LOT of stupid things after his retirement) is a former coach as well only helps matters.
  2. Djokovic's team basically confirmed that he went on that kid's awards show knowing that he had COVID:
  3. Djokovic allegedly was tested positive for Corona on December, 16th. On December, 17th, he went to a photo-op with lots of children(some kids award ceremony), posing with lots of children for photos.
  4. Couple of hundred of people taking it to the streets of Belgrade, Djokovic senior is comparing his son with Jesus and the Serbian government taking diplomatic steps against Australia, if this won't turn out to be one of the weirder stories of the year, we are in for a shit-show.
  5. Doing two Rumbles on the same show is just overkill. Considering how much they devalued the meaning of the men's Rumble (and of the women's Rumble as well), they could easily just do one of those (men or women) and the show would probably improve.
  6. Same question as for Albert: Will Sara Del Rey "survive" that cut?
  7. I am sure that he got some doctor's certificate that says that he cannot get the vaccine. Of course, if you are rich, if have more means to find a doctor who might be lenient in writing such a certificate. Even people that are not try to get around such stuff. For example here in Austria, since the government announced a vaccination mandate (to come effective in a month or two), there are reports of "cheating" at vaccinations and getting questionable medical exemptions on a daily basis.
  8. No, no one can deal with the supply chain issues for semi-conductors. Even big industries like car manufacturers had to reduce their production. In certain industries, you can try to "kill" the problem with money (e.g. pay something like $ 200 for a chip that used to cost a buck - this is no exaggeration, in our company we had cases like this), but this does not work for the mass market. Some companies (e.g. Apple) managed to buy a huge bulk of chips at the beginning of the crisis, thereby only increasing the issues for everybody else.
  9. Djokovic got a medical exemption where he can enter Australia and play without being vaccinated. Let's see if this will hold as I assume that this will lead to big political discussions in Australia.
  10. Paradox business model is so weird (weird as in "how can this work?"): I think if you want to buy EU IV with all gameplay-DLC, you have to pay something like € 300. If I see prizes like that, I am thinking that there is some scam going on (though probably a comparison with drug dealing is more fitting).
  11. I finally got GamePass (for PC) - there is currently a "1 € per months for the first three months" offer. What I played the first couple of days - Day of the Tentacle (remaster): a mix of nostalgia, to see how this game looks in the remastered version and if I still know what to do (I do, but some stuff took a bit going back and forth before I remembered a thing or two) - Ori and the Blind Forest: So far I played an hour or two. The game looks and sounds stunning, the gameplay itself, I am not yet 100% sold on. - FIFA 2021: Mostly to see how football games nowadays look and play as I don' think I have played one since the PS2 era (PES). The game mechanics seem mostly unchanged for the last 20 (or whatever) years. I mean there are some nice goal celebration animations and I suppose the analog stick response is a bit better then it was a couple of generations ago, but apart from that, not much has changed. - Yes, Your Grace: The game looked interesting, but sadly, it seems to have the depth of a C64 game. Three numbers to manage (gold, supplies and soldiers) and no storyline branching or random events at all. - Octopath Traveler: I forgot how much I used to love the 2D JRPGs. The design and the big cast of characters remind me of FF VI. I am only 2.5 hours in, so way too early to say more on this. - Crusader Kings III: So far, I could not get this game to start (and judging by Google results, I am by far not the only one with this problem). The suggestions by Paradox are almost comical (switch off your anti-virus software, manually add firewall exceptions, change the file permissions of the exe in some advanced file properties dialog) and don't help.
  12. Paul Roma was to blame here. He took 95% of the match and did a lot of flashy stuff (while leaving Wright nothing). Roma was fired for that (he worked there for another month but eventually, they let him go).
  13. The skateboarding thing is a bit specific because if you carry a skateboard to the ring and never ride it you put the focus on how fake your gimmick is, like the Dynamic Dudes over 30 years ago. Nobody knows that the Poker guy is not a real Poker pro just by watching the show.
  14. And the shaking, my god, the shaking. Watching this literally made by eyes hurt.
