  1. I guess that's one way to spread Covid-19. https://www.masnsports.com/nationals-pastime/2021/07/nats-game-in-philly-postponed-after-more-positive-tests.html
  2. We're back to masks indoors in DC starting Saturday. However, Maryland will not be reinstating a mask requirement and no idea about Virginia. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-mask-mandate-covid/2021/07/29/7699c8e0-efe6-11eb-81d2-ffae0f931b8f_story.html Three weeks ago we were informed by my agency that we would start Phase 4 reentry with a minimum of 2 days a week in the office. We've not removed the masking in agency facilities requirement but I'm curious if things will change for office return given the jump in cases.
  3. The difference in reaction and reception is based on one's view of athletes - human beings or commodities.
  4. I hope Bob Odenkirk's ok. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/bob-odenkirk-hospitalized-collapse-better-call-saul-1235029033/
  5. Do you think, just like us commoners, that the past 18 months has taken some mental toll on these athletes? I mean, I'm not an elite athlete but I cry for no specific reason more than I did pre-pandemic. I rage more and my concentration and ability to abide stress is absolute shit. These young men and women are not robots. The delay of the Olympics, the lack of routine in training and competition cycles, and you know, the ongoing pandemic that's particularly bad in the part of the world where they currently are all adds up. I don't care who you are, it's going to get to you at some point. It's also not like Biles ever needs to compete again. She is the greatest and her body of work speaks for itself. Even the greatest needs a mental health day. That she, a sexual abuse survivor, chose to remain on with Team USA and US Gymnastics to be the face of change rather than retire into the sunset is huge. I think some of you have forgotten that aspect of her story when discussing mental fortitude and pressure. Given how many pro athletes (and amateur no doubt) have substance abuse problems, drinking problems, gambling problems, and general impulse control, do you think that's really any better in dealing with anxiety or depression or the pressure of always having to be on? Knowing when to be done is the healthiest thing of all.
  6. Which is absolutely for the best if she's not mentally in it for any reason. She'd otherwise risk injury or even death, given the speed and complexity of her routines. On a side note, today's athletes are under levels of 24/7 immediate access scrutiny their predecessors never faced. I can't even imagine the weight of it.
  7. @Iskaral Pust is Comcast your internet provider? If so you can get their version of a Roku box called Flex? I think and it comes with a Peacock subscription (both are currently free) and with that you get access to more Olympics stuff. And Premier League games as well. https://soccer.nbcsports.com/2021/07/23/nbc-sports-premier-league-schedule-fixtures-nbc-sports-watch-live-stream-link-tv-info-peacock-video/ We have Hulu Live as well.
  8. Just finished up The Night Manager. Late to the party, but Loki left me wanting more T. Hidds. I thought it was well done and it's the first time I've enjoyed Tom Hollander.
  9. RE: Guardians They had an opportunity here to rework the whole logo and colours. Sad.
  10. Yes. All the other medications jammed down his throat to treat Covid is perfectly ok.
  11. A portable air compressor, after 5 gas stations in my neighborhood had damaged or non functioning tire filling stations. It works fantastic and I'm sorry I waited so long to get one.
  12. I'm watching Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar and it's so goofy and weird and great.
  13. RE: Carl Lumbly, I've seen that his screen time would have put him into Supporting Actor. The Cheadle thing is head scratchy nonetheless. Actress in a Limited Series is fierce. Also fiercely pulling for Pose.
  14. Thanks Limer. Unfortunately when the time came to book a flight my family got cold feet. I am quite outside their bubble, after all. Anyways, maybe next year.
