  1. ...and what a Men’s Final today! Djokovic holds on to beat Federer 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12 (and winning the first-ever 5th-set tiebreak in a Grand Slam Major tournament ever, 7-3). Just a phenomenal match which confirmed that these two are two of the very best in the world in tennis, and the best two on grass courts specifically. AMAZING Final! 🎾
  2. Federer was/is amazing - he always seems to play his very best at Wimbledon. IMHO, the only guy who may be able to beat him is playing him in the Final. It should be an epic match tomorrow. Also, well done to Simona Halep, who decisively beat Serena Williams today, 6-2, 6-2! Very impressive accomplishment!

    R.I.P. Thread

    I even liked him in the “Men In Black” films and in a more obscure one, “The Man Who Fell To Earth”, acting along side of David Bowie (I think it was his first film). He was a very versatile actor. R.I.P.
  4. That’s a great story! Thank you for sharing that! R.I.P., Jim Henke.
  5. ...and a bump for team excellence! 😎
  6. ...well, it was not to be. Congratulations to Mexico for scoring a great goal and then holding on to win 1-0. They deserved to win. Despite the game being played in Chicago, the Mexican fans were at least 2/3 of the crowd, if not 3/4. Team USA had many chances, especially in the first half, to score, but ultimately never did. This was a nice tournament for Team USA for the future. Last year, they crashed out of World Cup qualification; this year, they got all the way to the final of our Federation's Cup tournament - not the best result, but not a bad one either. (Also, losing to Mexico is sure to annoy certain folks occupying a white mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue - so, not all bad. 😉😄) Also, congratulations to Brazil for beating Peru, 3-1. (There is an extra downside of the loss today - it is highlighted and underlined in the quoted original post. We will not be getting our gift anytime soon. 😕) Finally, congratulations to the Women's team today! Great job!
  7. Well done to the US Women’s National Soccer Team! 😎 A nice 2-0 victory over the brave effort by The Netherlands! USA! USA! USA! 🇺🇸⚽😎 (Go Men’s Team later tonight!)
  8. Condolences to England today; Sweden were just a bit better. Go, Team USA tomorrow (twice - women's and men's teams)! 😎
  9. So were they "right here, right now" when you saw them? 😉 (I did always like that song. Additional "Fun Fact Of The Day" - the band members of Jesus Jones attended (in later years, not at the same time) the same English private school as the original members of Genesis. Strange but true...)
  10. ...and let’s not forget the men too! The US Men’s National Soccer Team is in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final against their traditional rival, Mexico, at Soldier Field in Chicago. That game is Sunday night after the women’s team play in their World Cup Final Sunday morning - so, Sunday July 7 is Soccer Final day in the US! ⚽ (If we win, @Max Tsukino has to make sure we all have our annual gifts shipped out to us next week; if we lose, he may allow the delay to continue 😉😄.) Also, for our South American friends, Brazil and Peru are playing in the CONMEBOL Copa America Final this weekend as well. A very busy soccer weekend!
  11. ...and we’re playing The Netherlands! A good result for them! (Of course, we need to beat them on Sunday, but I am happy for them that they are there.) Good luck to England as well in the 3rd place game against Sweden on Saturday!
  12. You're a good friend. 😄 "Get Lucky" (Loverboy's 2nd album) was good; I really liked it when I first heard it. Their debut album was also good early 80s "hard rock" (before that general sound later morphed into embarrassing "hair metal" later in the decade 🤮). They had that Aldo Nova, Night Ranger kind of vibe back then. Now after "Get Lucky", they did get quite a bit less impressive. Then grunge killed them off - I think that would have to go down as a metaphorical "mercy killing". 😄 Go have some kitschy fun - you'll thank yourself for it. 😎
  13. YAY, US Women’s National Soccer Team! Well played today! Good luck in the Final on Sunday! ⚽ (...and good luck to England on Saturday; I hope you finish 3rd. You’ll get your WC title someday soon.)
  14. That was an amazing result. Naomi Osaka and Maria Sharapova both losing in the first round was a shocking state of affairs as well. Wimbledon is great to watch. 🎾
