  1. That's where I started too. I was playing soccer in preschool. When I started playing basketball with neighborhood kids I could run forever but I couldn't really do anything with the ball. Basketball requires a lot of skills to learn just to really be able to play it at all... unless you're a giant. semi related, where do the sports rank in conditioning (cardio)? You noted that you felt like you could run forever, as did I, so I'd put soccer well above basketball. Baseball has to be last right? Wrestlers and boxers are the top of the mountain, their workouts are absolutely brutal.
  2. A few things: - So where are we on the "is he a white guy" question? - He admitted to hitting the guy he called the police on in the back and then calling him a ****. So he did that and then had the nerve to call the cops on him for a screen afterwards? Incredible. - why is he going on about retaliation? That guy is something else man.

    He shouldn't have been lied to, but he's going to the Spurs. Hard to feel too bad for him. Also he might not be able to beat a loaded west, but the Raptors were about to fall behind at least two teams in the east. His exit came at a good time.
  4. Time to dust off this classic: The last one, the guy that misses all day and banks in the game winning three, is proof that evil is real and walks among us.
  5. I don't think he can play pickup ball in NoVa again. Dude needs to take up tennis or something.

  7. Game of Thrones Season 8

    True, but if I remember correctly I think a lot of what we learn about him are in the thoughts of others which go deeper than just what the characters say. His presence in a scene tends to make the scene take on a tone of characters negotiating with an evil genie. Every word suddenly matters because it might mean something else entirely. Speaking of Littlefinger, I was expecting some sort of showdown between him and The Spider that never happened. Early in the show and books they have a definite rivalry that seems to be building towards something... but then it just sort of vanishes. If I had to guess how he'd meet his end, it would have been with Varys having him killed, either directly or by revealing his treachery. Kind of a let down.

    Technology intended to monitor humans actively like that is absolutely terrifying.

    The advantage books have when dealing with schemers like Littlefinger isn't just about how much time can be spent on every details. Books can tell you what characters are thinking and shows/movies can't do that very well. Books can put you right into Littlefinger's mind. Even scenes where a character has no lines can be revealing in ways they can never be on screen.

    It's not unreasonable but it seems important enough to put on screen. That omission however still falls well short of the crime committed by whoever chose to leave the revelation about Tysha out of the show. It explains exactly why Tyrion would act so wildly out of character by forgoing a quick escape to risk a confrontation with his father. It also explains why he essentially tries to drink himself to death.

    Guy on the right has that look kids get after being made to pose for that 20th picture at Disney world.

    Transcendent players don’t need point guards to be great. Dynasties don’t even need traditional point guards to dominate.

    I’d like to see Trent Williams and Dwight Howard join them for a photo. Just to see small and enormous examples from the two sports all in one image.
