  1. Tonight's debate was a whole lot more coherent and substantive (still some questions that the moderators failed to ask though), probably because there was about 1/2 of the candidates on the stage that were there previously. Also some protesters interrupted Joe Biden just as he was answering one of his the final questions.
  2. Crackle is free and ad-supported, by the way. It is sort of on the tier of ad-supported streamers like Tubi and Pluto.
  3. I think I may be wrong about that. Now the rumor is that Osaka's team just started to follow Wim Fissette on social media. This is the end-of the-season madness period. How could I have forgotten how wild the Challenger circuit can be?
  4. Apparently Osaka has reunited with Baijin and Kiki had some pointed thoughts about it that she posted. Not even an hour ago, I was just musing about the possibility of a Sloane Stephens/Kamau Murray/Monica Puig retread. Looks like I may have been right. Or NOT.
  5. More tennis-related news incoming- Jeremy Chardy and his wife Susan are l'expecting.
  6. So apparently, Osaka split from her coach? There's a tasteless joke to be made about the Osaka team waiting for the next Williams Sister castoff but-😅
  7. The Trump administration is really out here putting people's lives in danger.
  8. that's been going on for years, no? Isn't she now involved with the Spanish Tennis Federation? All of the court surfaces, even grass are now so slow that it's become a baseliner's paradise. No doubt, Kim Clijsters observed this and believes that even Wimbledon will be much more accommodating to her game. Speaking of what's old becoming new again- Darren Cahill and Simona are reunited, but did they ever leave? I got the distinct impression that he was still coaching her, even from the commentary booth.
  9. Since this thread has kind of morphed into a general discussion on streaming, I thought that this was as good as anywhere to post this. AppleTV and the raft of other upcoming streamers must find this news a bit unsettling.
  10. Can fellow mother and former Belgian nemesis Justine Henin be far behind?
  11. During Josh's previous writing stint with Y&R, I remember he claimed that he was going to strengthen and build up Sharon (who had been debased by the previous regime) and surround it with a love story in the middle (which sounded dubious to begin with) and it turned out to be one gigantic mess. He's never known how to write Sharon. She's botched many things but one can't blame Angelica McD for everything.
  12. Welcome to the boards. I try to be a lot more cordial usually, but from time to time I get a little ornery when folks only seem to show up to remind us to be civil to people who are part of a system that would never return the civility and break every rule of engagement in the process. It gets more than a little tiresome. I actually once heard someone telling people not to 'fat-shame' Trump when he called a woman "Miss Piggy" for months. Civility is not supposed to be a one-way street.
  13. I must have the source/poster blocked because I'm not seeing all the posts. Oh well. Trump has his children working in the White House, so can we all stop looking at this White House/administration as being like any of the others? Trump Inc. has 'crossed the rubicon' concerning normal standards so why should his administration and family get treated with kid gloves? This administration locks children in cages, allows toddlers to sit in their own soiled diapers for days, not hours and refuses to give badly needed feminine hygiene products to teenage girls. So I have to RME at the "standards police" now trying to lecture anyone about how children are discussed when the Trump WH continues to tear children away from their parents/families. Vulnerable children who are fleeing violence and violent acts of nature like hurricanes (do those people read and care about the young girl who was just separated from her parents coming off a plane to Miami from the Bahamas, where their home was destroyed by hurricane Dorian). People trying to "shame" people over Trump kids can take that wagging finger of disapproval elsewhere because like other posters mentioned when the insults were hurled at the Obama daughters (during the worst of the fight again the ACA), Republicans, right-wingers et al. didn't care. Suddenly they care? GMAB. Go somewhere else with that! I didn't want to post a rant today but honestly, why is anyone pretending that this WH of vipers adheres to any normal standards of decorum or engagement. It makes me want to quote that infamous Michael Jordan quote.
  14. Either that or he believes that Melania's side piece at Saks has a lot of explaining to do.
  15. It's still a loss but that margin of victory for Bishop was mighty small. Just saying. In uneasy financial markets, this is interesting. I doubt it will be accepted but it is causing consternation in the U.K. about GB's autonomy in the wake of #BrexitShambles.
