Re: EPL 2020/21

Well, as a lifelong (3 day old) fan of Spurs, I am outraged. Or mildly interested in the idea that Leyton Orient's league isn't mandating testing. That's a risk they decided to take, and the clubs were likely allowed to follow suit or up their game. They took a risk, it didn't pan out... Tottenham ...

Re: Cemetery Visits?

I go visit my mom's grave a few times a year. Mother's Day, her birthday, during the high holidays (hebrew calendar day of her death was yesterday - right between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur). Once in a while, I'll drive the half hour just to hang out and walk through the cemetery. It's a huge, beau...

Spurs making some good, solid signings. Joe Hart? Just a backup keeper, but Hjojberg is the sort of player they desperately needed last season... Matt Doherty Always looked good whenever I saw Wolves play. And Aurier not starting is a massive improvement for the team. Just binged the All or Nothing...

Kawhi did every thing the Raptors and their fans asked of him.

Seeing him play here last season was a highlight of my sports viewing life. And his performance throughout the playoffs was spectacular.

But man, I am so, so happy that he and the Clippers shat the bed like that.

I saw them twice - once when I was 12 or so, they opened for the Who (the prime Who) and the fans were not in the mood for this new music from Jamaica. They got booed as I recall.

15 years later, saw Toots on the waterfront in Toronto. Fantastic stuff.
