    My dislike started during his first prominent match at the US Open against Gael Monfis when both were fresh out of juniors, and Djoker pulled out all the gamesmanship stops, calling dubious injury timeouts etc. It was a repulsive display that smacked of desperation and duplicitousness (both of which he has continued to display in various forms since then) and got him off on the wrong foot with me. That plus his parents were/are terrifying.

    Thank you, dcalley, Door County Cherry, and dleighg! That really helps. It sounds like it was more clearly explained in the books (which I haven’t read.)

    I recently discovered this show and watched it on Amazon. Can anyone explain the relationship among Tessa and her two dads? I totally missed it. Love the show.

    Good grief, what a demoralizing night of tennis. Thank goodness no one had to buy a ticket to this thing. I hadn’t heard about Thiem and Covid. Gah. I was liking him because supposedly he and Rafa are tight.

    Well, he had Covid with symptoms, and we know how determined and destructive it can be even in mild cases, so he may not be fully recovered, at least not enough to play a major and get into the second week with a full tank. I hate to think he’s lacking fighting spirit.

    Oh, Foe, that was depressing. WTF? Seriously, is he known for lack of fighting spirit? Although, honestly, I don’t care who wins the men’s. Thiem deserves it the most, but those highlights ...

    I know it’s a long shot, but I’m rooting for Big Foe!! So disappointed at FAA’s performance today. WTF, FAA?

    This may be old news to most of you, but I somehow had missed the fact that Aaron Boone and his wife have four kids, two of whom were adopted from Haiti, two of whom are biological. (This was mentioned in the media because he got very emotional yesterday talking about the issues underlying yesterday’s sports boycotts.) Seeing men like Doc Rivers, Dom Smith and now Aaron Boone talk so emotionally has been so touching and I think does WONDERS in communicating to others how brutal racism is, and I’m so thankful they all have spoken out so honestly and with vulnerability.

    Do you have a link for this interview, Shok? I have a friend (Rabid Rafa Fan) who would love to see the whole thing.

    I’m sure I’m hardly the first person to suggest this, but has there been any discussion that teams treat the home games like drive-in movies, and sell tickets by the car load to a limited number of fans to watch the games broadcast outside the stadium in their own cars? They can cheer/honk when something good happens, noise that could naturally be heard inside the stadium, and then the team could pipe that noise in as well to supplement. It would give employment to some of the seasonal ticket-takers and refreshments folks who currently are sh*>* out of luck. I also like the idea from above about encouraging employees to attend the games, socially distanced of course, to add some ambiance.

    This Yankee fan is so happy for Edwin Diaz and the Mets. So nice to see him smile.
  15. Almost the entire cast was a similar height. I think Betty White might have been a bit shorter. But I think they were all in the 5’-7”-5’-9” range. Unlike with the DVD show, where DVD, Jerry Paris, Carl Reiner and Richard Deacon were very tall, and Morey Amsterdam and Ann Morgan Guilbert were somewhat short with MTM and Rose Marie in the middle.
