  1. Maybe Dusan just isn’t great on grass, but Fed is looking in epic form right now. He’s dropped Nike (surrendering his RF logo, which they own) for Uniqlo in a reported 10-year, $300 million+ plus deal. I know athletes can still be valuable past their active years, but how many of those does he intend to play? I’m assuming at least through the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Ugh, Sloane is in a deep hole against Donna Vekic, and Venus is struggling in early games against Larsson. I have more faith in Venus to switch to another gear, but neither have played since the French, right?
  2. The Croatia/Denmark match was boring except for the first five minutes and maybe the last 15 (with the penalty kicks). Denmark could have won that, but I’m happy for Croatia.
  3. Croatia vs Denmark wasn’t five minutes in, and it was already 1-1. Wild scenes.
  4. Stunning ending with that kick save in penalties to hand Russia the upset. 😂
  5. Was somewhat expected. Lucky loser Jason Jung of Taiwan takes his place.
  6. A tribute to Senegal 🇸🇳
  7. Both Messi and Ronaldo out. Might have been their last World Cup chances.
  8. Haha. I didn’t even think of that. 😂😂 (Maybe because their black cast is so marginalized that they are easy to NOT think about.)
  9. Vive la France! 🇫🇷
  10. Oof. Where’s the Benny Hill music when you need it?
  11. Can’t make this stuff up. It’s... creative. We will see if it works as well as DAYS’ old-school product placement attempts from a few years ago.
  12. Yeah, I guess it was ahead of its time with some of darker comedies we’ve seen in recent years. Sometimes it’s tough to watch people die all of the time in a sitcom. But I suppose it’s an essential part of TV history.
  13. Oh wow. M*A*S*H was one of those shows that was always on when I was a kid, but I never really sat down to watch because it seemed so depressing and dreary-looking. (I saw Altman’s movie in college.) I know the sexual politics probably won’t hold up very well, but I wonder if I should try to watch a few episodes. I always found Mike Farrell oddly attractive, even when I was much younger.
  14. I still remember, “I now pronounce you SANDY... SWAN!” “NO!” Shane McDermott and SMG had a nice Valmont/Merteuil chemistry, sort of presaging SMG’s role opposite Ryan Phillippe in Cruel Intentions.
  15. I loved me some Paradise Beach. As I’ve said before Ingo and Manu Bennett made me realize some things about myself. Swan’s Crossing had the most ridiculously ‘90s opening credits, though, with everyone awkwardly dancing. Also loved Fifteen and cheered when Kelly stabbed her evil bestie Brooke in the back. It’s funny that Enuka Okuma has had the most enduring career of any cast member (aside from Ryan Reynolds, of course).
  16. I still like Dorinda a lot but agree that the honeymoon is over. If she survives this and any associated backlash, she’s a lifer.
  17. I just wish soaps made a simple effort to not be so predictable. Everything is so half-assed. But I guess there’s no incentive to do anything different these days. You just gotta tread water to survive.
  18. What can you say, really? Predictably dreadful.
