    Spotify Family and Multiple Alexas

    Got an Alexa speaker for both kids for Christmas. At the same time upgraded Spotify to Family (3 simultaneous streams). My expectation was that these two actions would allow one kid to listen to Kidz Bop in his room while the other kid listened to some rock in his room. This is not what happened...

    Week 17 Game Thread

    besides watching the Pats clinch HFA I will be watching the Bills and related games. It’s been a long drought for them and I have a lot of Bills fan-friends. To recap, they need to win (which I think they do) first and either Ravens lose (extreme long shot) or Chargers lose (long shot) AND...

    AFC Playoffs into December

    Rounding into December, 5 games to go. AFC East: Dolphins win their 6th in a row and refuse to go away quietly. They still play the Patriots on New Years Day. They have @BAL, ARI, @NYJ, @BUF before that. Three road games, two in cold weather, not easy, but I am not ready to declare the AFC...

    Today, following the loss to the Clippers, the Celtics sit a half-game back of Brooklyn and just out of the playoffs in the 9 spot and about 10 games left.  It is crowded, with only a game separating the 8-11 seeds (Brooklyn/Boston/Indiana/Charlotte).  Miami is 2 games up of the 8th place team...

    Game Recap Worth a Damn?

    I just watched ESPN's 'recap' of last night's game, and they yada yada'd through all of the good stuff.  Where is Sale mowing down the Sox?  Where is the big decision to lift him?  Where is the beginning of the comeback, before the Holt hit? has amazing hockey game recaps, they last...
