    Name a song you played in the car that made your kids hate you.

    Kids from any era. Mine are born post-2000. Mine hate ANYTHING by the Cramps. But they especially hate Paradise by the Dashboard Light. Not even Karla DeVito saves it for them.

    You're an NBA GM, CHOOSE: Chris Chiozza or Jalen Adams

    Granted, I haven't watched him play much, but I don't think my choice would be Chiozza.

    high intensive testing /screening required on college campuses (link)

    https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2768923 In this projection, testing every 2 days is the only way to both open campuses and keep them open. But schools can't get access to tests and almost no school is doing it, & forget about the expense, it is is colossal. So...

    Javonte now free to come to campus after the rule was rescinded

    I got the news by text and haven't found a news article anywhere yet, but the rule has been rescinded on foreign students and online classes.

    With baseball's shortened 60 game season, will there be those saying 60-80

    games is just right? "Oh, but the stats and records." Yeah, 80 games sounds about right to me. Start the season in May, end in early September.

    Hurley suggests the season shouldn't start on time. Clearly, he should retire!

    Celebrate the return to the BE--but I will never forget how the Presidents, Coaches, and ADs banned UConn in 2013

    Banned from the BET, though everyone knew the NCAA application was totally bogus. UConn was on its way out, so they stuck it to the school, even though UConn had been a very loyal partner to all the Catholics throughout its time in the conference. And they stuck it mostly to the players.

    What happens when a European Soccer Academy shows you the door (link)

    Knicks and Spike Lee

    Apparently, Dolan has had enough of Spike Lee, and he isn't being allowed into MSG: I dunno, but it seems like a bad move to ban your #1 superfan. Wonder what Dolan is thinking.

    Point guard

    Who are we recruiting to really help lead UConn in the next several years? I was one of the ones defending Alterique in the big thread this week because I believe this team needs him this year. I've also really liked what I've seen of Gaffney, but I am not there yet thinking that he will take...

    Andre Drummond is the real board man (link)

    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/andre-drummond-is-the-real-board-man/ Basically the article uses stats to show that Drummond's rebound numbers are not only historical, but they are legit. He's fighting for rebounds at a very high rate, and that they are not flukey at all.

    Akok is POG with about 15 left in the 2nd half

    A lot of blocks, shots altered and even a few hoops. He is the biggest factor this game. Amazed to see such talent for our young guys. And don't look now, but Gaffney is coming on too.

    Welp, I'm now a bigger Serie A fan than college football fan.

    Napoli v. Sampdoria tomorrow is on at the same time as Pitt and Penn State, and I'll be watching the soccer game. This means Serie A moves into position as my #3 favorite sport/league to watch. After Patriots and UConn bball.

    OT: Anyone here ever treated for Lyme Disease?

    If so, I'd appreciate hearing from those who were not treated early (or cured). I'd especially appreciate it if you'd be willing to discuss the testing process. Specifically what testing process did you use? My main questions are about the Western Blot test, the one with the different bands of...

    In retrospect, UConn should have used its leverage in the new conference

    before it admitted new members. There were 3 leftovers. UConn should have said: "Join us and you get a big piece of all the exit fees. We are keeping our sports other than football in the Big East, and we'd like to invite Navy to be just like us. Football only. Other sports in a regional...

    Stunned there's no talk of Kemba to the Celtics.

    Here's a team without a PG. They have $35m in cap room now. They need a leader, because they have just one left, Marcus Smart. And they probably only need one piece after Kemba to be a contender. What am I missing?
