  1. Even with the MLB analogy, at the end of the day, for most directors, it would be like a Maddux, Mussina, or Halladay without a logo on the cap on the plaque. Fun topic to debate anyway.
  2. Close between Jaw and Schindler's List, but I went with Schindler's List. While Jaws has its blockbuster significance, I'm not as much of a fan of the movie (there, I said it). Schindler's List is where he peaked as a director and did his greatest work.
  3. Washington Post had a good preview of the candidates for next year's Presidential election in the Philippines, including Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Race to replace Duterte as president of Philippines shapes into wild contest of personalities
  4. I've read that it will be separately packaged doses for kids, but they will be ready for when the green light is given. I'm expecting approval around first week of November. ETA: Story here where I read that - https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/10/08/children-vaccines-distribution/ “Some large pediatric practices, for instance, had planned to pull child-sized doses from existing Pfizer-BioNTech vials for vaccination clinics and were surprised to learn this week that Pfizer is discouraging that. Pfizer spokesman Kit Longley said the company will be shipping separate pediatric vials, with unique labels and different color caps to distinguish those from the vials used for those 12 and older.“
  5. “It's not looking good for the astronauts accompanying Shatner.” https://twitter.com/sickeningjar/status/1447894767061409796?s=21
  6. What’s mask compliance on the Acela like these days? Pretty strict or pretty loose? I was invited to a meeting in NYC (live in DC), and trying to figure out my comfort level on heading up for it, or just joining remote (which I’ve been doing for the past 18 months). A bit concerned about Delta because I have a 5 year old not yet eligible to be vaccinated, and have been pretty cautious. (I’m not sure if I’m more concerned about his health, or that he would be forced to quarantine at home for two weeks if I came back with something.)
  7. Rule does give umpire flexibility if they determine it was intentionally deflected out of play. https://baseballrulesacademy.com/official-rule/mlb-umpire-manual/balls-deflected-out-of-play/ (Last bullet) ”If, in the judgment of the umpire, a fielder intentionally kicks or deflects a batted or thrown ball out of play, the award is two bases from the time the ball was kicked or deflected.”

  9. I saw the new Apple Watch available for pre-order tomorrow. I don't have any Apple Watch (or any watch, period), but I'm going to dive in. My wife told me that she will buy me the new Apple Watch for my birthday; but joint banking account, so still some cost analysis. Should I just pre-order tomorrow? Any price shopping that I can expect in the short term?
  10. Seems weird to me that the formula does not have Burnes in the top ten. If that’s their formula, okay, but I’m not sure how much faith to put in it, if it does not capture his season appropriately.
  11. I’ll take more of Johnny Gilbert reading music lyrics. Let’s do rap next.
  12. On these two... I finished "Hero of Two Worlds." That was great. Anyone interested in learning more about "America's favorite fighting Frenchman" should give it a read. Anyone that has listened to his podcasts should know that Duncan is a great storyteller, and it translates just as well to his books. Partway through "The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois." It is a behemoth and taking awhile to go through. Really great read so far though. I love a good epic novel. I've also got "American Prometheus", a biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer, going on my Kindle. It is another long read, but very thoroughly researched and (so far) worthy of the Pulitzer Prize that it won when it was released.
  13. Good stuff. I liked Klara and the Sun too. Rooney's book is on my to-read list (I thought "Normal People" was great) -- glad to hear it is good. Debating between that and the new ones by Lauren Groff and Colson Whitehead when I get through my current reads.
