Re: Racism

You would know more than me but the countering statistic would be, how often do cops get shot by an unseen gun when they approach a car? Thus the having to see hands at all times. Or how often are guns in the car at all? I guess it depends on the area. I have no idea because in Canada, getting pull...

I got my wife to try edibles with me after a trip to Colorado.

They made her nauseous and head-spinny for a full day and a half. Some kind of reaction to an anti-depressant we think.

Re: 2021 MLB Regular Season Thread

I don't know how much you can really blame an umpire there. He's not really looking at the batter, he's looking at the pitch.

Pitches are fast and move a lot, so it takes a lot of concentration (and it's not surprising that umpires miss a bunch of calls). That should be a booth review.
