    Anyone else watch this Padres/Rockies game? It's basically a little league game. Was 8-5 by the second. (I know high scoring games are not unusual in Colorado but this one felt silly for how early in the game both teams had huge innings). But I digress. The announcer was doing a really weird thing. When he'd call the score he kept emphasizing the wrong number. For example, at the start of the second it was 6-3. Then the Padres scored 2 runs. He says "Now it's SIX to five." Half-inning later he did it again. Rockies scored 2 and he called it "Eight to FIVE." He kept emphasizing the number that had not changed. I realize in the grand scheme of things this is relatively minor, but it totally distracted me.

    I read this before I'd seen the episode, and I'd half-expected the Zenis to say the earrings were ok from the Sayans because we know they can fuze without them, because GoTenks, right? So even though they merged with device-assistance, they're theoretically capable of doing that anyway. I was surprised and yet not surprised when the reasoning was merely 'I'm amused so it's ok". I'm kind of annoyed at this whole thing because the fighters all seem to be all "honor! skills! whatevers!"and all about who is the best to fight in that same super annoying way Goku and Vegeta always do, instead of actually trying to win. All they need to do is knock their opponents out of the ring. Maybe the thinking is, well if I beat the crap out of them, then it's easy to just toss 'em over the edge, but other than that, they really do not need to actually beat each other to a pulp, just out of the ring. And it feels like it's been eons since anyone were actually trying to knock someone over the edge. They're just pummeling each other, which I guess is fun if you're after watching a fight? But it's not really the task at hand. The "best" fighter here doesn't need to have the most strength. They just need to figure out the most efficient way of knocking the others over the edge. I'm like...fight smarter not harder?

    S07.E04: Red Light, Green Light

    I thought he said it had been over two years since he got out. Although when he first showed up sans tattoos I thought they were going to imply he was wearing makeup over them rather than having had them completely removed. Other than when it's still healing, I don't think it usually changes the texture of the skin. More likely he'd either have faint outlines still visible(like a super pale version of what he had before) or bleached-ish looking spots where the tattoos were. So he'd probably have to be wearing makeup to completely obscure some sort of lines on his face.

    I think it's more like 2 minutes per episode, based on how many episodes are the actual tournament and how long the tournament was supposed to last.

    The ESPN crew seemed totally bored in Subway Series G2. The stupid box score phone number thing, resetting one's password on one's phone, do you shower if you go out to dinner between games of a split doubleheader. By the fifth inning I was like, look I know the Mets have a huge lead, but it's the Mets so it's not safe and are ya gonna talk about the game at all? Or even just baseball?

    I was cheering for Thiem to destroy Djoker well before his weather-provoked diva behavior. I do not enjoy him. Plus I think Thiem has the best chance of anyone of beating Nadal tomorrow.

    Which, to me, makes the women's semis a bit more interesting? I mean, sure I'm excited about Rafa Roger, and I hope Thiem kicks Djoker's ass. But if Anisimova is the next Hingis that'll be exciting.

    I am a vegetarian, so I may be showing my own ignorance here but when they were talking about how difficult the hangar steak is because you have to sear it and then let it rest...is that not...just....cooking meat? Or at least...pretty much any kind of steak?

    As I predicted the Robinson Cano Runs In Any Way And Pulls Up Lame cycle is once again in full force.

    I'm assuming that's inflation-adjusted? In this context I don't think it makes sense to do so because the point values in the game have not changed.

    The concern was about lightning more than the rain. Fed was saying something about the safety of the crowd.

    What kind of nonsense tomfoolery shenanigans gives up 6 runs in the TENTH. I am grumpy today.

    I thought in the TH section of the penultimate episode Vanjie said Florida? But yes, got the NY accent from mom. I do think Vanjie lives in LA right now, but isn't from LA.
