    ReVax! Aaron Rodgers caught the Covid!

    I thought Hawaii had very strict entrance protocols for a long time (he had that infamous trip in May), but maybe he technically was quarantining at his destination. It's disappointing as my kid who has loved him since he was 6 got the vaccine as soon as 16-year-olds were eligible, and now he's...

    Covid and the Olympics

    Kara Eaker, vaccinated two months ago. Also vaccinated and out (in protocols), basketball player Katie Lou Samuelson.

    Tennis 2021

    I saw that Hurkacz won 50 points at the net in his last match, and with the comments here about his serve speed, it felt like trouble for Roger. Didn't count on straight sets, though. I'm wearing my Worried Mirka face.

    Tennis 2021

    That kid getting Novak's racket is the closest we're coming to a changing of the guard today. Happy kid, though. What a match!

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I went through the cancellation steps on the Fubo account and they gave me a credit for $50 toward next month. I'll roll with that and go back to Sling when it expires, I guess. I'll have to listen to the Red Sox on the radio. Fubo is entirely too expensive, and most of the soccer-viewing here...

    Tennis 2020: There is an I in Thiem

    My buddy Stan Wawrinka must really be regretting not entering this tournament right about now, pandemic risk notwithstanding.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    To be fair, this Sarah Spain column is pretty good, and predictably, she's taking crap on Twitter for it, a lot based around it being "too soon" and that she happens to be a white woman. https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id/28586207/now-right-remember-kobe-bryant-life-all-it

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Dear bosoxsue, Thank you for your interest in the Boston Red Sox. Sincerely, Haywood Sullivan (and an actual signature)

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Carlton Fisk. In the first angry letter of my life, I wrote a long one to Haywood Sullivan and received a one-sentence reply.

    Tennis 2019: Plus ça change...

    That's the way I feel, although I'm pulling for Djokovic for some reason. I'm at work with a big TV and am the only one doing so.

    Tennis 2019: Plus ça change...

    Four more break points saved in this set and here we go with a tiebreak ... how much longer can he keep this up is the question.

    2019 Masters

    I was hoping for a third hole-in-one on 16 today, but that was cool.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I love Pluto because of Slow TV. I'll look for the news stuff -- thanks!

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    That's a good idea. I could try that tack with them first. I'm not optimistic, as they are the only game in town (for all intents and purposes). Their only competitor in this part of Connecticut is Frontier, the former SNET, which is mostly godawful. But it's worth a try before reattaching the cord.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    My question is opposite of this thread title, but I feel like it belongs here: Has anyone cut the cord and decided that it is worth it to go back to the cable universe? I’ve gotten some tempting offers from Xfinity recently. I pay $94/mo. for high-speed internet through them now. I have Sling...

    recommend me a headset for PS4 and htf fortnite works

    Ugh, that's a drag. My son's are still fine, and let's just say if he held a cleaning implement in his hand as much as he wears those things on his head, our house would be spotless. He plays on an XBox, so maybe that makes a difference?

    Tennis 2019: Plus ça change...

    I would be curious if Federer has ever before not capitalized on a break point opportunity in his career. Credit to Tsitsipas for making it happen, but it was something to see.

    recommend me a headset for PS4 and htf fortnite works

    This is the one my 14-year-old son has had since early September. It goes without saying how much he uses it. Thanks, @MyDaughterLovesTomGordon for the intel on the V-bucks. ETA: Ah, same problem as Amazon link above, but the same headset: BENGOO G9000 Stereo Gaming Headset

    The NFL and the National Anthem

    I have found your advice to be productive, as I've definitely evolved the more I have read about the issue and the motivation and recognized my privilege throughout the process. I initially was negative because my cousin the Vietnam veteran was bothered by it, but I think even he has come...
