  1. Didn’t we already go there with Ravi, with Phyllis making him over? If they use Ravi, it’s time that he plays something other than the hapless tech dweeb who can’t get dates.
  2. Anderson has been so mentally fragile so that’s HUGE for him. Dude had never even won a set off Federer or even pushed him to a TB before today. To come back from two sets down and saving match points is amazing composure and endurance. But... one of the servebots (Anderson, Isner, or Raonic) will make the final. Can you imagine if Isner gets through? Still, Anderson’s performance is inspiring. I’ve never been a huge fan (even though he seems like a nice guy), but the fact he didn’t break himself shows so much growth.
  4. He really is, Jim Parsons. He goes for the nastiness, but you can really see the toxicity and self-hate peeking out behind it. And he’s funny as hell. You see Bomer in tighty-whiteys from basically the jump. Impressive body, of course, as that’s what he’s paid for. He’s just... ok, but I feel like that part is a bit underwritten anyway. To his credit, he lands a couple of really funny lines. I will say that, even with Matt Bomer parading around in his undies in the first scene, you can’t take your eyes off Jim Parsons. He’s just magnetic, and he can make wrapping gifts compelling. The guy I saw the play with REALLY hated Quinto. I thought he was funny, and the crowd absolutely erupted at almost all of his quips. But if you saw Leonard Frey’s performance in the original, Quinto’s version is a disappointing facsimile.
  5. Just saw “The Boys in the Band” on Broadway. Our soap alums Tuc Watkins and Matt Bomer were fine (as well as great eye candy) and got off some funny lines, but the star was naturally Jim Parsons, who goes much darker and deeper than I anticipated in the very mean-spirited lead role. (I’d seen the movie years ago. Zachary Quinto is basically doing Leonard Frey pantomime as the venomous Harold, but his comic timing is spot-on) Overall, much better than its initial reviews and still very relevant in 2018.
  6. Braeden posted such a nice, diplomatic tweet... and then he just SNAPPED. But “great game!” 😂
  7. France are going to be a hard team to beat.
  8. After all that early bloodletting, the final four on the women’s side are all seeds, three of them GS champions.
  9. I’m sure going out to nightclubs would stretch the show’s meager budget, but I suppose the restaurant set could be repurposed.
  10. Wimbledon sucks as a tournament. Shameful. Bad scheduling for anyone not named Roger or Rafa. The obvious manipulation to engineer another Roger/Rafa final 10 years after “The Greatest Match.” And the ESPN coverage has been awful to force people to buy their digital subscription.
  11. This is fun. Makes me wish we had the BBC feeds here.
  12. Women’s quarterfinals set: Cibulkova vs Ostapenko Kasatkina vs Kerber Bertens vs Goerges Serena vs Giorgi
  13. Sadly, Tab Hunter has died at 86. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/amp/news/tab-hunter-dead-damn-yankees-star-was-86-1057871?__twitter_impression=true
  14. Pliskova out to Bertens. No top 10 seeds left on the women’s side. Camila Giorgi beat Makarova and would be Serena’s next opponent if Serena beats Rodina (which seems a foregone conclusion, but you never know).
  15. I’m sure a lot of people did. They are also wrong. 😂
  16. My favorite moments (since the Rex/Katherine necklace bit, Jill shaking out her hair, and Harley dancing were already mentioned). Felicia tossing the boa around her neck and Paulina licking her finger in the AW intro Lisa with her hands on her hips in the ATWT toilet flush intro Livia rolling her eyes in the Frons-era AMC intro Antonio’s “smoldering” head turn and Blair’s surprised, tousled-hair look in the late ‘90s OLTL opening The karate kick and Nola’s pained look in the portrait in the GL disco intro
  17. Croatia the dream killer. If Croatia plays like this in the semi, England will absolutely clown them and make the final.
  18. Kei reads Nick’s serve better than anyone, I think. There’s a reason he’s 4-0 against him. Meanwhile, the men’s Round of 16: Federer vs Mannarino Monfils vs Anderson McDonald vs Raonic Isner vs Tsitsipas Khachanov vs Djokovic Nishikori vs Gulbis Del Potro vs Simon Vesely vs Nadal
