    2020 Boston College Football.Give it Haf a Chance

    One more chance to avenge the treason of Frank Leahy. The upsets through the years have been sweet. But the best revenge served cold was Joe Yukica sabotaging George O'Leary's brief ND coaching stint. The old man was class of '30, and this is the first year there isn't a season ticket holder...

    When I was a kid attending BC hockey games, BU's Herb Wakabayashi regularly lit up BC. He was too small for the NHL, but he had all the tools. I know he's in BU's HoF. He went on to coach a couple of Japanese Olympic hockey teams in the 70s and was very active in hockey development for Japan.

    2020 NLCS: Braves vs. Dodgers

    The last shortened season was 1994 without a postseason. The Braves got screwed that year as they were legit contenders. This is a good spot for a Karma Make Up Call.

    Wifi and plaster walls

    I have an AT&T 50mb fiber connection. The wifi has never been great in this house, and recently got considerably worse with my devices frequently disconnecting and reconnecting. Some googling found lots of AT&T customers with this problem. Consensus seemed to be that the wifi radios in the...
