  1. He's in. 3:29:00. So proud of him for getting out there and getting that done. Such a BMF!

  2. You guys are the best. Really appreciate the well-wishes and comments. 2021 Treasure Coast Marathon Race Report Again, really low expectations for this race and no real plan going in. I just planned to ease into the first few miles and relax. Weather wasn't the worst, but the wind was 15+ sustained from the north with gusts over 20. I hate running in the wind and it did make it feel pretty cold out. I saw @tri-man 47 joke about the gloves. In hindsight, I probably should of wore a pair. Woke up at 3:43 am, did my morning business and relaxed for a few minutes. I went through th

  4. In the past two days The US has given out 5.3 million vaccinations. That's more than the total number of shots given out since December in Italy or Spain. It's twice as many as Canada has given out in total. It's more than five times the number of total shots in the Netherlands. There is chaos in many locations and I understand the frustration. But we are absolutely killing it in our effort. The chaos is likely to stay as long as demand outstrips supply, but we are witnessing a fantastic achievement.

  5. I don’t think anyone here is a highly sculpted athlete. If you’re BMI puts you in the range to get the vaccine, get it. The reason these high risk factors get it early is because you getting COVID could contribute to stressing hospital capacities. It’s about keeping hospital beds available, not about who deserves it.

  6. 41. The Who “You Better You Bet” (from Face Dances) https://youtu.be/vXMWNhCmLUg Following the death of Keith Moon, The Who didn’t seem to have the same energy. Who Are You, produced when Moon was still around, was their last really good album IMO; Face Dances and everything that would follow was mediocre at best. Like The Rolling Stones, they had pretty much reached the end of the line around this time. But that didn’t mean that either band couldn’t still release a great song from time to time. “You Better You Bet” is a throwback, filled with the old greatness. One of the last ga

  8. Round 233: FFA-1 Storytellers Taxi -- Harry Chapin Story songs were pretty much just what Harry Chapin did. His first hit was this long tale about a taxi driver's chance encounter with an ex. The hit studio version is linked, but growing up I was more familiar with the version on Greatest Stories Live, an album my father and stepmother played constantly in the '80s, and whose title drives home the first sentence in my writeup.

  10. STEAL OF THE DRAFT (after LeBron at 1.06 jfc) 5.08 Nate the Great Thurmond, Chairman of the Boards, C 60s He "only" made 5x all defense in the era where guys played like 10 years total...because the award wasn't invented until he'd had a five-year or so reign as the best defender in the NBA (ok, fine, 2nd best, sorry Mr. Russell). Kareem described him as the greatest defender he ever faced, claiming that scoring on Nate was among the greatest accomplishments every time. He was the first (only?) player ever to hold Wilt Chamberlain to ZERO points in a game. He's one of the only 4

  11. 4.14 Dave Cowens C 70s Gotsta have a major Celtic. Proud its this one. My Uncle Jimmy took me to Celtics games every Sunday afternoon they were home from 1962-70. Spring of '69, we were at a game and Bill Russell went down ugly. Sprained ankle but looked worse. I've never felt so much dread in one room. Going into the playoffs without #6 (our coach as well, mind you) was that inconceivable. He made it to the playoffs and won us another title, then promptly walked away. The dread was real now - that was it. We suffered thru an awful year (i've told my Hank Finkel story already) o

I'll try to keep it brief... DINO Series 15K - Mounds State Park Wasn't exactly feeling it when I got up this morning but had a great constitutional, as one grandparent used to call it, had my stuff together and was out the door by a about 6:45 am for the 50 minute drive +/-. It was a brisk 26* this morning +/- with projected ending temperature in the low 30s. Got to the site just in time as the line

  14. 6.03 Alex English, SF, 80s Almost went a different direction, but need to start getting guys from different decades and really trying to avoid taking 2010s guys early. We'll take silky smooth scorer off the bench who led the 80s in points.

  15. Going with one of my favorite 80s player. Very underrated in all time considerations. Yo Mama selects: 6.01 - Sidney Moncrief 80s PG/SG A perfect fit as a sixth man on my pantheon team. He plays both guard spots and is one of the best defensive guards of all time. I’ll slot him as a PG on my 80s squad for now depending on who else I take there. Career averages of 15.6/4.7/3.6 with 1.2 steals on 50% shooting. His peak averages were 21.0/5.8/4.7 with 1.5 steals. 2x defensive player of the year 5x all defense (4 1st team) 5x all nba 5x al

  16. My grandmother gave me the live album for my 14th birthday in 1976. It may have been the most remarkable and unexpected gift I've ever received. My grandmother had an extremely limited world-view, though she may have been the sweetest person I've ever known. It was a) feed her family and b) church. She had autographed photos of Billy Graham all over her house. The only books in her house were the Bible and those by Billy Graham. The only TV programs she watched were the Sunday morning religion shows. So, in 1976, this woman goes into The Wild to buy her grandson a birthday present (I

  18. Had a mixed week. Just a long week with the kids, Mrs. O off the rails due to that stress, and I went down in flames with her. A few perfect days to start the week, but then trailed off. (It’s the same story as usual — started to drink some, then started to drink more, then ate garbage and stopped tracking). I’m basically static with where I was, and really need to make some headway this coming week. Though I did get a row in this week, first time in a while. Would like to make that a more regular thing. And to a comment @bostonfred made for me in his thread, which stuck with me, if you’

  21. 5.09 Grant Hill - SF 1990s Hall of Famer that could do it all. Despite injuries he still made the Hall of Fame and collected 7 all-star appearances and 5 All-NBA honors. His defense was second to none, especially for a superstar and face of the league level player. Crazy to read that he may be an even better person off the court than he was on it. #33

  22. 5.03 Bernard King SF 80s the most prolific scorer i've ever seen. his duels with Dr J and another yet-to-be-drafted Eastern Conference forward were like heavyweight bouts - the most-excited i was by personal rivalries til Bird/Magic. and with treys, no handchecks and no giant coke scene in the NBA, he woulda scored 40 today. @Jayrod

  25. This is by far my favorite Duran Duran tune. Probably because this is their most unabashed "homage" to Chic (who was a gigantic influence on this band - it's no surprise two of the Taylors ran off to hook up with Tony Thompson in Power Station). It's all right there in the groove. This was also one of the first music videos I remember seeing, along with U2's I Will Follow and the Tubes Talk To Ya Later.

  26. 40. The Rolling Stones “Waiting on a Friend” (from Tattoo You) https://youtu.be/MKLVmBOOqVU So this is one of my favorite “newer” Stones song. Love the melody, and this is a sax I really like (played by legendary jazz great Sonny Rollins). Keyboards are by Nicky Hopkins. Fun fact: the building that Mick and Keith are a standing in the doorway of the video, at 96 St Marks in New Year City, is the same building used for the cover of Physical Graffiti.

  29. 5.15 David Thompson, SG 70s Another player that flew too close the sun. Prior to drugs ruining his career, he was very arguably the best perimeter player in the NBA, ahead of guys picked well ahead of him here in Julius Erving. Pete Maravich, and George Gervin, and one of the best athletes the NBA has ever seen. Through the 70s he averaged 25.3/4.7/3.8 on 51% shooting (NBA&ABA), made 4 all-star teams (in 5 years), finished 2nd in ABA MVP voting in '76 (Dr J), and 3rd in NBA MVP voting in '78 (Walton 1, Gervin 2, Kareem 4). Through their NBA careers in the 70s, here is how he

  30. Interesting coincidence: I was channel flipping maybe two nights ago and came across an interview with him ...about his breathing techniques and his ice water immersions. I can't say that I was sold, but I was definitely intrigued. As commented above, your sustained HR was unbelievable! To hit the high 170s at mile 13 (about the time you turned north into that wind) and to hold 170s/180s for the next 13 miles? That's BMFing to the nth degree. So glad you stuck with it those last few miles and finished. Superb effort, @JShare87.

  31. Being inside the capitol on Jan 6 is a crime. Full stop. No one purchased a ticket, stood line line with other smelly tourists or we're there on ****official business***. This was not a tour group that took a wrong turn. They were to disrupt congress, no much how badly they protest otherwise.

  34. The video is available several posts down in the link. He coined the term as describing someone like himself who is attracted to women, but not trans-women. Whether this is anti-trans, or perhaps is just toxic masculinity or machismo, the threats and attempts to destroy a kid’s mother’s business is the very type of cancel culture I would think we could all agree is problematic.

My poor 60s and 70s teams might be tough to compete, but as a loyal Sixers fan i am willing to Tank a decade to soar the rest of them: 3.16: Joel "The Process" Embiid C, 10's - prediction if we do this draft in 5-10 years from now, Joel goes in the 1st round. honestly if you look into this guy and his stats, he rivals the top 3 Centers of all time. often compared to Hakeem, Hakeem has already said he could be better than him.

  42. 43. Bob Dylan “Every Grain of Sand” (from Shot of Love) https://vimeo.com/359215525 In 1981, Dylan was just finishing up his trilogy of Christian albums, and this Gospel infused tune from Shot of Love is widely considered his best song of the era- though I personally favor “Precious Angel”. Don’t get me wrong though, “Every Grain of Sand” deserves all the accolades it has received over the years.
