  1. Normally I'm in agreement with disgraced former US Senator Al Franken when he said that "Jazz is the music of idiots" but I can make an exception for this, that dance is spectacular.
  2. It's not quite the same without the incredible outfits the band wore on stage.
  3. I did know it was possible, but only because I've seen the promo(s) in question. She truly was the secret ingredient in the Cauldron of Madness.
  4. All this nonsense with Punk has been completely corrosive to my interest in AEW, but a gif came across my twitter feed of Bakery Yagi 2k22 getting booted in the face and I'm back on board.
  5. I was on a half day today, finished at noon; and those lazy gits were done before I was.
  6. Well, as someone who railed against four day tests, that we might get another result in three is gonna make me look stupid. On the other hand, this test has lost two days, and four days scheduled would not give us a result. At any rate, this is madness and it's great. EDIT: England started the day 36 runs ahead, ended their innings within fifteen minutes 40 ahead.
  7. "Golf is a game for people who don't hate themselves enough in their daily lives." - Lewis Black.
  8. "The great thing about not writing any of the rules down and relying purely on "tradition" is that you can do whatever the hell you like." - JSA
  9. It is indeed. For reference, their opponents South Africa scored 151. Both sides will get the opportunity to bat again over the next three days.
  10. South Africa outsmarting themselves at the toss by walking straight into a good seam attack in perfect conditions for seamers to attack helped England. England resume this morning 40 behind, 111-3. The most shocking part of this is that Ron Weasley's big brother Zac is still batting. Are we about to hear the end of "it's been x innings since he last got a fifty?"
  11. No wonder childhood obesity is such a big deal, who the hell wants to play sports with that nonsense going on?
  12. It's a T20 franchise league with extra twiddly bits and twenty fewer balls but those extra twiddly bits aren't enough to ruin it. Not sure they add too much to the game, but they don't ruin it; and T20 cricket is pretty fun to begin with.
  13. There's one difference in that the NFL's case is not bullshit this time around. NFL Discipline is a complete mess. The ruling accepts pretty much the entire facts of the case as presented by the league and all but laughs out Watson's defence. However, the suspension is pegged to as similar cases as they could find and also notes "the NFL’s post-hoc definitions of the prohibited conduct at issue." The NFL likes to make rules up after a massive outrage instead of trying to get them sorted in advance; and I would have thought that maybe they would have sorted this shit out once their pants were pulled down by the whole Ray Rice thing, but clearly not.
  14. The biggest LOL of the day has to go to Aiden Markram, run out before he faced a ball. England's 50 Over Side is still in turmoil, but since that was only 9 more than a T20 game, they were sweet.
  15. NOT WHILE HE HAS THOSE AIRBRUSHED DUNGAREES I WON'T
  16. They've got one, the Reed approved WILL HOBBS.
  17. Anyone would have gotten out to the balls that Root and Stokes got, I'm still trying to work out exactly what the hell Jason Roy was doing. And as for Liam Livingstone... Also, this Bumrah character is pretty good. The only T20 England won in the series was the one without Bumrah. Jos Buttler described his team as "coming third in a two horse race,"
  18. What happened to Endo? I thought he was going to be a consistent Sanyaku guy, but last year was not kind to him. M4 seems about his level, which is a drag. I've got a soft spot for that shade of purple. Anyway, maybe the fight back starts today. Good day for that deep shade of purple. Does Ura wear a shade that's close enough to purple to be one of My Guys? Hmm.
  19. The whole build up to the match with Kasai and Numazawa trying to beat some Death Match into him and isami, and then later egging him on to start getting Sasaki's attention was all hella fun, too. Don't know if I would have put up with that sort of nonsense without it.
  20. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has made England openers look foolish in this T20 series so far, absolutely foolish. I can't even be mad at Buttler for getting out in that first game, he got done by one of the most ridiculous swings I have ever seen.
  21. Terunofuji is physically imposing in a way that Hakuho never was, an absolute bulldozer; but Hakuho was an absolute wizard. He could just decide that actually he was not going to lose and the universe would just arrange itself for him. A healthy Hakuho, I would could back for at least 14 wins; Terunofuji, I'd agree with your twelve.
  22. No-one has been betting on baseball or fixing matches and they feel like they have a handle on the pandemic enough to fill the place so I would have guessed (with no other information on the matter,) that the tournament will go ahead. Asanoyama won't drop a match until he gets to Juryo. Wakatakakage could still make Ozeki with 12+ wins, so that could be interesting although if Terunofuji fights all fifteen days, he's going to be favourite.
  23. Let's just agree not to talk about the Home Nations and their summer tour.
  24. As long as he's managing England into the dirt and not bothering International Rescue, then I don't mind at all. In the day's Sports News, Wales are 18-3 up in South Africa at the half, with an 8 minute Dan Biggar sin bin to fight through; although I'm told the live bookies still have the home side as favourites.
