Quarantine 3/23

It's my mom's fucking birthday today. She passed in 1999. To think she's missing all of this! I love you, mom. Sure, I'm a little obsessed with this virus and I think we should all be so fucking consumed. As we know, hearing from virologists, epidemiologists and the like, this kind of novel coronavirus has …

Fellow Isolationists!

I really appreciate you! That's one of the many silver-linings to an event like this (I think we agree there is always some sort of "silver-lining" in down-times, tragedies, losses, etc. -- though I still find difficulty discerning the blessing-in-disguise of the loss of my mother: I'll keep looking-in on that one.).

That's like me saying Medvedev …

Djokovic Wins 8th Aussie Open

We're late on our Aussie final commentary, but there's almost not much to say (which sounds ridiculous coming from me since I always have plenty to say). Still, Novak outlasted the up-and-comer who'd probably shot his load getting to the final. Remember, in this era of THE THREE GREATEST PLAYERS TO EVER PLAY, you'll have …

2020 AO Final: Djokovic vs. Thiem

I don't have enough bloody time to get into this right now, but what exactly is there to get into?  We are going to hopefully see a great match, with a couple of turning-points, shifts in momentum, etc. Time to watch tennis. A straight-set clinic from the Serb would be a let down. To be …
