Saw Booksmart on the flight home on Friday and really liked it. Was just coming to post about that. I watched it on a flight this morning.

Re: EPL Season 2019-20

Chelsea’s defense is shit. Good thing their transfer ban was lifted so they can overpay for mediocre defenders this winter. Yeah, a lot of youth back there with Zouma, Tomori, Christensen, and James.

Re: NCAA Hoops 2019/2020

I won't argue your points, but I will say that the lowest defensive efficiency for a season in the Pomeroy era (since 2002) is Kentucky's Anthony Davis team with an 84.4. It's very early in this season, but UVA's rating is incredible. Pedantic to point out that its not even a comp since Kentucky ha...

After W/L - I confess to not knowing what those other numbers are or their significance.

That would be sad if Utah won big but is left out due to being the lesser draw. Same with Baylor.
