    OT: Golf - US Open 2019

    I was surprised he escaped the run-in with Sergio Garcia without more criticism. We all know that Sergio is an unlikable douche nozzle, but Kuchar really took advantage of the rules there.

    Outside of Pulisic, the midfield is going to be comically bad . . .

    Plus, he has this to comfort him when he loses . . .

    Sid Wilson Seems Motivated

    The few jumpers we see in that mix seem to have much more arc on them than what we saw this year.

    Sid Wilson Seems Motivated

    Much more important will be the ability to hit a 10-12 foot shot off of one or two dribbles.

    Favorite Uconn team that didn’t win a championship?

    It's hard to imagine now, but at the time It was impossible to not think that we may never make a Final Four. The 94 and 95 teams were better, but we had no business losing to a team with three decent players and a bunch of absolute dreck behind it. Still, if Ricky Moore isn't hurt, there is...

    This could be why OTP hasn't been around . . . .

    Preliminary Gold Cup Roster

    You would think that we, as UConn fans, would learn that just because you do a lousy job picking someone's replacement doesn't mean that they shouldn't have been replaced . . .

    OT: David Ortiz Shot

    It really is.

    OT: David Ortiz Shot

    Did he have a private security detail with him? Really surprising if not, and if he did, I'm guessing they're fired . . .

    Favorite Uconn team that didn’t win a championship?

    I can’t say that either is a candidate because they both ended with such disappointment. For me it’s either the dream season, ‘01-‘02, or ‘94-95.

    Preliminary Gold Cup Roster

    Odd. If that was the plan, then Weah should have played with the Sr. team and Sargent should have gone with the U20's. Other than that, roster is about what we would have expected.

    Preliminary Gold Cup Roster

    It would have been better to just say "I put a # 2 roster together for this game and they predictably played like # 2 . . ."

    What's in your vegetable garden?

    Mix goat cheese and either cream cheese or ricotta, lemon juice, basil, fresh parsley, salt, pepper, and onion. Make a simple beer batter (flour, beer, baking powder, salt, pepper). Deep fryer on 400 for 2-3 minutes.

    Univ Houston Has Eyes on Joining AAU, Raises $1 Billion

    You want to account for the difference? Just look at the numbers of alumni . . .

    Mariano gets 100% HOF votes???

    Good explanation, though I think it's pretty clear that, in your paradigm, Mantle is one of those tier 2 hall of famers that is right on the cusp of the first tier, if not in it. Yaz would likely be in the bottom of tier 2. That people interpreted that as some statement that Yaz was Mantle's...

    Did I miss it? Did someone say Yaz was equal to Mantle?

    I have to be honest and say I'm not a fan. Love the relish but the dogs themselves are underwhelming.

    Hartford Area Hidden Lunch Gems?

    The place is outstanding. That’s some pretty egregious tax evasion, though. Hopefully it survives.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    I don't doubt that with more time they would have done a better job wrapping up the story. It didn't happen. Whose fault that is is up for debate. Like ColchVEGAS, I have an issue not so much with the ending but with how it got there -- there was just no time to cover everything. It felt...

    OT BBQ and Grilling - Traeger - *First Cook Update*

    If you like lamb, try a whole lamb leg on it. I cook it at 275 on the BGE for 3-4 hours, with an aluminum drip pan on the plate setter below filled with about a quarter inch of water. The drippings make an amazing smoky gravy.

    Chernobyl (HBO)

    I watched the second episode last night, and it was outstanding. I had read My wife has also been fascinated by the show, as her PhD advisor was involved (and given some kind of award by the government of post-Soviet Belarus) in the post-accident work in contaminated areas.

    I guess he knew the battle was lost and wanted to off his competition, but that was one of the dumber ideas in this episode.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    The shortcuts started in season 7, IMO, almost a full two seasons after they outran most of the book content. Some of the deviations from the book in seasons 4 and 5, as well as some of the earlier "original" content (Hardhome and the final episode of season 6, for example) made for great...

    OT: Things Other Parents Let Their Kids Get Away With.....

    I dismiss any non-parent's "plan" for their future kids' behavior. They have no idea what's coming . . .

    OT: Things Other Parents Let Their Kids Get Away With.....

    For that reason, we rarely ate at any place where you don't look up to order until the youngest was 3 and responded to threats to sit still and behave. I was super-sensitive about disturbing other diners and didn't care for carrying a crying kid out of the restaurant while my food gets cold.

    OT: Ductless Air Conditioners

    We've been looking into this. We also have electric heat, which in the mid-late 2000's wasn't nearly as bad as people think in comparison to the alternatives. The retreat in fuel prices (and lack thereof in electric rates) has had an enormous effect since then. I'm fine using window units...

    I don't think it was planted there for any purpose. I think it just happened to ignite from the dragon fire.

    Game of Thrones Season 8

    The final episode will make or break what's happened to date in this season. The "lesson" is similar to what Olenna said to Jamie before she died. All the scheming and backstabbing and posturing doesn't matter when one person is willing to burn it all to achieve/keep power.
