    Your own personal favorite athlete(s)?

    I love the amazing Japanese gymnast Kenzo Shiraii. Here are all the skills named after him: Here's him doing womens' gymnastics:

    Jeff Schroeder gets into it about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Honestly he talked the same way to Kalia. That condescending anger.

    Our Favorite GOT Moments: It Is Known

    This Dany/Jorah scene. I'd really like to memory hole S8 "Mad Queen" Dany. This is the Dany people believed in: humane and forgiving. "Jaime. My name is Jaime" is an amazing scene. And all Tormund scenes are great. I love this one where he gives Jon Snow some sex advice:

    That was a weird ending to a thrilling series. Congrats to the Raptors, although one has to wonder what would have happened if Golden State didn't go down with one injury after another.

    Hmm. Big injuries do often happen by playing when you're dealing with low-grade injuries. A good example is Tom Brady in 2008. He had sat out the pre-season with a foot injury, but played the first game of the season and blew out his knee and was out for the rest of the season. Knee injuries happen all the time in football (and basketball) but who knows what would have happened had he rested his foot, allowed it to heal properly, and then came back? With that being said, these are hyper-competitive guys who want to play, and pointing fingers is an exercise in futility. Injuries and pain are just a part of an athletes' life. There are those rare exceptions like Lebron James who just seem to be made of an extremely strong constitution but as I said, they're the exceptions.
  6. I'm not sure if this is related but I noticed that so many of Larry Nassar's victims are not married nor are they in relationships, and many of them are at the age where one would think they'd be married/having kids. Absolutely not a judgement on them, just an observation. It wouldn't surprise me if the scars he left made them have serious trust issues around relationships and unable to connect with people in a physical way. What a horrible evil man.

    Guys this is a horrible accident that could have happened anytime, anyplace. Kevin Durant is a competitive guy and considering we've seen guys with concussions in football games in tears begging to be let back on the field I don't think anything could have stopped him from playing. Injuries and pain are a part of sports. I was once at a ballet performance where a girl landed hard from a jump, screamed, and was carried offstage. Popped her Achilles tendon, still has not returned to dancing. It happens.

    It's weird that Jeff is most known for flipping out about Dumbledore because one of the best parts of BB17 was Jeff's crush on Clay. Look at the bedroom eyes in these videos:

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    I like that after they broke up as a romantic couple they remained friends through ups and downs (the surgical residency was a down). Not everyone is like Julianna Marguiles and Archie Panjabi or Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall. People can have their differences but remain friendly and collegial. Here's a good deleted scene between Peter and Corday at Mark's funeral.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    Well he and Lizzie broke up but remained friends and in the series finale had a really 'shippy moment where he walks her to her car. Since the series ends after that a part of me likes to believe that he left Cleo-bot and rekindled his romance with Corday. Especially since his relationship with Cleo-bot had all the spark of drained battery.

    For the Carter/Benton lovers, this is also a total gem. After the Carter's Shittiest Day Benton drags Carter to the Benton Thanksgiving dinner. My heart watching this.

    Yeah that cheering for KD's injury was when I turned it off. That was so classless. I'm glad some mortified Raptors players told the audience to STFU.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    Well in my experience generic "nice guys" like Mark are often more fair-weather than pricklier characters like Benton. The Marks of the world are people-pleasers and they don't want to take a stand that could be controversial. Doug Ross was a polarizing figure in the ER -- patients and most of his colleagues liked him, the higher-ups not so much. Kerry was the same -- some people liked her, many hated her. So it's not surprising that Mark was wishy washy about them. You got the feeling that Benton didn't have many friends outside work, and probably never had many friends period. So it made sense that when he found someone he cared about (Carter) he would go above and beyond. Like flying with Carter to rehab.

    Eh, it;s weird, but parenting in the social media age has gotten really weird. I used to teach a student who got pregnant by accident and dropped out of school. Neither she nor her babydaddy have a job. But her social media is constantly trying to "monetize" the baby, so to speak. She has this "baby-care" YT channel as well her own skin-care YT channel, and is always asking for "DM's for donations" so people can continue to watch her ... raise a baby. At first I thought no way is anyone going to pay for her parenting tips but then I saw her baby's one year old birthday party and ... wow. It was blinged out to the max, and tons of people had sent gift bags with money. I also know people who do this with dogs and stuff. I feel like telling them to, you know, get a job, but whatever pays the bills I guess.
