    Movie Hindsight 2020

    Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado - I had never heard of Walter Mercado going in to this Netflix documentary. I'm glad I watched, it touched me. The documentary is fine, a bit padded maybe, but Walter is awesome. The only regret for me is knowing I will never be that fabulous.

    The Old Field House

    I went to one FH game when I was a kid. We were late and the game was SRO so we stood 2-3 deep all game in a corner. That was over 4,600 people in 1973 for a game against Yale. That's more than AAC games at Gampel.

    OT: Maple Syrup

    As Martha Stewart would tell you, the only place to buy your vanilla extract is Charles Baldwin in West Stockbridge, MA. They also make Baldwin's Table Syrup. "In the 1920s, Earl Baldwin, son of Charles Baldwin, developed Baldwin's Table Syrup in response to requests for a good-tasting syrup...

    EPL back tomorrow! 6/17

    I mentioned that I'm rooting for the Hammers to stay up. Moreso than ever after I watched an incredible interview by Michail Antonio after they got jobbed against Newcastle. Today, Antonio gets four goals!

    The Old Field House

    Students got the best seats. One quibble, the bleachers were pretty far back from the floor. I think that hurt our home court advantage. When they filled in that space with folding chairs for the epic VCU game it was incredible.

    OT: Changes at ESPN

    When you think about it, even that's a lazy comment. The Chocolate Factory was a house of horrors for kids.

    More Zion Duke news

    I just clicked on ESPN and the chyron said "How Does This Make Zion Look?" Screw that, how does this make Duke look? All the insiders know Duke cheats. SVP has been known to say as much off-air.

    OT: The Old, the Obscure, and The Forgotten - Round 2

    Did anyone know that Dexy's Midnight Runners had two Number 1 songs in the UK? Come On Eileen of course, but their first one was called "Geno"!

    Leave It To Beaver and similar shows

    I loved Leave It to Beaver reruns when I was kid. I tried getting out of eating Brussel Sprouts by putting them in my pocket. Haven't watched in decades, but I thought the show had real laughs that many old shows don't. Ricky Nelson is another story. In every clip old I've seen, he looks so...

    Covid Adjustments

    I don't go out much, always with a mask when I do. But I miss going out, especially to the watering hole. So the big adjustment I made came after I had a nice hit at the track. Instead of blowing the money, I bought this and pretend I'm at the bar:
