Guy on the USTA team I'm captaining was on the 1984 UVA Final Four basketball team with Rick Carlisle and Olden Polynece.

Really good tennis player. Serves with both hands.
Wouldn't you serve better using just one hand?

Re: 2020-2021 NHL Regular Season Thread

Regardless of how one shades it, I think that's a surprisingly high price paid for Mantha. Might have been par for the course in a different season, but not compared to other trades this season.

I’m sorry, PDX. That guy sounds like a shit. And man, do HOA meetings suck. Years ago, back when I bought a condo, I went to a meeting right after I moved in. Iirc, we spent at least half an hour listening to people debate whether or not a dead tree should be removed. I never went to another meeting...

As I said in a previous post, I was foggy and tired Wednesday night and most of Thursday. But woke up today feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed again. Never felt sick.

I had no problem with my first Moderna a month ago. But after getting my second yesterday, I’ve been in a fog since last night. Having a hard time determining how much of it is due to the shot, and how much is just a hangover from too much imbibing last night. I did have the chills at bedtime though...

I like tradition. In my mind, it's silly for a team called the Red Sox to not wear any red.

And, let's face it. They aren't trying to be cool or innovative. They're just trying to sell more replica merchandise.

Re: Scotch

Sabo, I knew everybody would chime in with great single malt options. But, to be contrarian - if your friend usually drinks J&B, he might prefer blended scotch over single malt (crazy, I know). If so, you should get him a upper-tier blended scotch, like Chivas Regal or Johnny Walker Black or Gold.
